The obvious one is Maiden. Even though I think NOTB is really overrated, the streak still stands.

The big one I want to nominate is Evergrey's first five albums. The Dark Discovery, Solitude Dominance Tragedy, In Search of Truth, Recreation Day, and The Inner Circle. The first album suffers from a bit of "first album production syndrome", but the material is top notch. The other 4 are all amazing in my opinion.

Another one I personally want to enter is Edguy from '98 - '05. Vain Glory Opera, Theater of Salvation, Savage Poetry, Mandrake, and Hellfire Club. The final two are by far the best, but I think all 5 are fantastic albums.

A band like Blind Guardian poses an odd issue here. While they have released 5 consecutive GREAT albums, they were put out over a 12-year period, averaging 3-4 years between albums. it makes it hard to classify as an era of the band. In the same line of thinking, Savatage released 5 or 6 albums in a row I love, but the lineups changed so dramatically that, again, its impossible the call one era of the band.
Queensryche would count if you classified the EP as an album. Empire's still a bit of a step down from the rest, but I'd be comfortable with the classification.

And then you have your bands who have simply managed to have consistently very good careers. There's bands out there that don't quite have an amazing streak, but they've just never released a bad album.

Four, if you ask me. I think Sacred Heart is a good bit better than most people write it off as, and I think Dream Evil flat-out rules and easily stands with the first 2 albums.

Dio almost makes it, but there's normally one album somewhere in there that breaks the run. I'd take Lock Up The Wolves, Strange Highways, Magica and Killing The Dragon in an instant, and I know I'm in the minority with most/all of those, but although I do like Angry Machines, it's hardly what you'd call outstanding.

Sacred Heart does the same job of spoiling the Holy Diver through to Lock Up The Wolves run.

To be perfectly honest, any album through any album. I don't think they've made a bad one. But if I had to pick one run above the others, it'd be My Arms, Your Hearse through Damnation, purely because I've yet to buy either Ghost Reveries or Watershed.

I'll be seeing them a week on Saturday on the Progressive Nation tour with Dream Theater. Haven't seen them since the London Roundhouse gig (the one the Roundhouse Tapes album/DVD was recorded at), so looking forward to it.
