These are my fav all time records from my up bringing from a child to a metalhead!! :bouville: For me here they are:

5. Yngwie Malmsteen's Marching Out - Last time he recorded with Jeff Scott Soto and recorded some of the best songs he has ever made: "I'll See The light Tonight", "Don't Let it End", "Disciples of Hell". True classic...

4. Ozzy "Diary of a Madman" - I believe it is some of his best material and probably the most underrated. "Flying High Again", "Over The Mountain" should be played at every show.

3. Metallica "Master of Puppets" - Claimed there place in Metal history!!! From start to finish this is METAL!

2. AC/DC "Highway to Hell" - The last Bon Scott album with AC/DC and every song is a classic. RIP Bon!!

1. Blackmore's Rainbow "Rainbow Rising" - If you have not heard this record, you are missing a huge piece in music history. Ronnie James Dio broke thru the gates with this album. "Stargazer" is true musical genius. My fav all time Record!!!!

Honorable mention: Iron Maiden (all of them), GNR "Appetite for Destruction", Motley Crue "Shout at the Devil", Dio "Holy Diver"

1. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
2. Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast
3. Metallica - Kill Em' All
4. Death - Scream Bloody Gore
5. Helloween - Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part 1

Staples in creating the many genres of metal. May not individually be my favorites by each or anything, but absolutely great. Very notable mentions are Megadeth's "Peace Sells", Slayer's "Haunting The Chapel", Exodus' "Bonded By Blood", and Testament's "The Legacy".

I guess I wasn't doing all time favorites, but rather my favorite metal albums from my childhood. Those are the first 5 metal albums i ever bought.

None would make my all-time top 5 today.

I can't choose a favourite W.A.S.P. album. It's too close between The Headless Children, Unholy Terror and KFD.

The Headless Children would probably take it with Heretic (The Lost Child) and the title track.

1. Evergrey - The Inner Circle

Excellent album. Still probably only my 3rd-favorite Evergrey album, but it's one of their 4 near-perfect albums in my opinion. Their 1999-2005 run is pretty much unmatched in my eyes.

PowerMaiden
08-11-2009, 12:54 PM
metal albums only:


1. Number Of The Beast
2. Piece Of Mind
3. Ride The Lightning
4. Live After Death
5. Master Of Puppets




it's as simple as that, I have have Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here between Lightning and Piece Of Mind on my all time fave album list.




Cheers !

I thought it was bullshit that some paparazzi took that photo and people mocked it, but the caption totally redeems itself.
