Most influental Metal albums...

Right now I am working on a Spotifyplaylist containing the most influental metalalbums of all time. I would like to get to maybe fifty albums and hope would like to help with suggestions on what I am missing.

The list right now is:

Iron Maiden - TNOTB
Judas Priest - British Steel
Black Sabbath - Paranoid
At The Gates - Slaughter of the Soul
Slayer - Reign in Blood
Deep Purple - Machine Head
Dio - Holy Diver
Sepultura - Chaos A.D.
Faith No More - Angel Dust
Slipknot - S/t
Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral
Black Sabbath - Heaven & Hell
Ozzy - Blizzard of Ozz
Megadeth - Rust in Peace
Opeth - Blackwater Park
Dissection - Storm of the Light´s Bane
Morbid Angel - Covenant
Napalm Death - Scum
Kiss - Destroyer
Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power
Darkthrone - Transilvanian Hunger
Mastodon - Leviathan
Rush - Moving Pictures
Alice in Chains - Dirt

So there should be twenty-six more albums on that list. And if you don´t use spotify. There are some artists whose music arn´t available. For instance Metallica, AC/DC and Tool would have had albums on the playlist if they were available.
1st Jun Wolves in The Throne Room
2nd Jun Rammstein, Volbeat, Slash
12th Jun Kiss
7th Aug: Maiden, Slayer

I would also have Reinventing The Steel by Pantera on there. That was the epitome of their progression to heavy, southern metal and I think the vocal performance and riffs you hear on TGSTK and RTS (more so RTS) influenced a lot of metal you hear today.

Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
Bathory - any of the first four
Death - Scream Bloody Gore or Leprosy, or Symbolic maybe?
Cynic - Focus
Venom - Black Metal
Suffocation - Effigy of the Forgotten
Carcass - most likely Heartwork, but Reek of Putrefaction or Symphonies of Sickness
In Flames - The Jester Race
Dark Tranquillity - The Gallery
Cannibal Corpse - Tomb of the Mutilated

thats all i can think of for now.
I've lost track of just about everything.

Good call on putting Angel Dust from FNM on the list. It influenced the nu-metal sound of the late 90s and 2000s. The album was way ahead of it's time. Unfortunately it inspired garbage like Korn. But they also influenced some decent bands like Slipknot and SOAD. I'm not sure how Slipknot's first album makes the list though as you're still missing A LOT of albums that meant more to metal than that one ever will.

Here's a few more to add:

Metallica - Master Of Puppets (honestly how did you forget this)

Anthrax- Among The Living

Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath, Master Of Reality, Volume 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and Sabotage.

Yes, all those Sabbath albums are that important

Indeed, I'd say anything younger than 5 years is pushing it...
