The Official Metalsetlists.com 100 greatest metal albums of the 80s list!
Might as well do this in chronological order
1) I am allowing bands that aren't metal in the strict sense like AC/DC, Van Halen, Guns N Roses, Cro-Mags etc. But don't go too far off of right field or I won't count that particular entry. Nothing wrong with Minor Threat, Black Flag, The Clash and Eric B. & Rakim, but that's pushing it.
2) You must have no less than 20 and no more than 100.
3) We're strictly doing LPs, but the following EPs/demos are ok because of special circumstances:
4) Entries can be posted here or sent to me by PM.
5) due date is 9/27.
So are the album votes weighted by their order or does every album on a list get 1 vote?

For about three years when I was in high school, I listened to nothing but 80's metal. That's literally all I would touch, so this is more a reflection of that than of what my tastes might reflect nowadays if I revisited the 80's. I still threw in some albums that I discovered and came to love later on.
Seeing as less than 5% of my music collection is from the '80s, this wasn't very difficult.
1. Slayer – Show No Mercy
2. Slayer – South of Heaven
3. Death – Leprosy
4. Sepultura – Beneath the Remains
5. Kreator – Pleasure to Kill
6. Sodom – Agent Orange
7. Morbid Angel – Altars of Madness
8. Metallica – Ride the Lightning
9. Slayer – Hell Awaits
10. Slayer – Reign in Blood
11. Morbid Saint – Spectrum of Death
12. Bolt Thrower – Realms of Chaos
13. Death Angel – The Ultra-Violence
14. Metallica – Master of Puppets
15. S.O.D. - Speak English or Die
16. Sodom – Persecution Mania
17. Testament – The New Order
18. Sarcofago – INRI
19. Repulsion – Horrified
20. Metallica - ...And Justice For All
21. Death – Scream Bloody Gore
22. Dark Angel – Darkness Descends
23. Sadus – Chemical Exposure
24. Metallica – Kill 'Em All
25. Terrorizer – World Downfall
26. Pestilence – Consuming Impulse
27. Infernal Majesty – None Shall Defy
28. MDC – Smoke Signals
29. Bolt Thrower – In Battle There is No Law
30. Evildead – Annihilation of Civilization
Double posting will not give you double points. ;)
and larv, thank you for clarifying, and no, neither of those you marked count. If you want you can switch them out for more appropriate albums so your points (and your over all list) doesn't lose their weight.
Edit: Pink Floyd doesn't count either.
