Masterguy's 10 albums that shaped his music taste today

Yeah, I'm hoping on the top 10 albums bandwagon, but I'm going to do the 10 albums that shaped my taste in metal(Including the albums that got me into metal). These albums are by no means my favorite albums ever(Though some are) but just albums that changed my life musically.
This will be hard for me, as I'm not good with lists, but let's see how this goes.
Who knows, maybe I will get better at this list thing and make more. Also I have school, so don't expect this to be done anytime soon .

So yeah, #10 coming up soon.

First 1 should come tomorrow. I don't think there should be any controversy, not like im naming my favorite albums or something(for the most part).
Also there are no repeats in this list!

10. Painkiller - Judas Priest


Well what can I say about this album... I guess since this is considered a album that got me into metal, I'll start with the story behind it.
Well right as I was getting into metal I asked a few kids I knew on the internets about metal and what to start out with. Apparently one of the kids I asked is one of the biggest Judas Priest fans. He immediately recommended his favorite album, Painkiller. So of course I went to the store and picked it up. I got home and put it in and began to play it.
All of a sudden Painkiller kicked in and I was a beginner drummer at the time and the best way I could explain my reaction is this

At the time I just couldn't believe my ears, something so old to me was just so fast and so awesome. Then the guitars and vocals just kicked in and I just knew I was in love. I mean Halford has become one of my favorite metal vocalists of all time and this album sure as hell displays the power of his voice. Downing and Tipton just fucking SHRED throughout this whole album as well. Honestly I just can't see why someone couldn't like this album. Everything about is awesome, the vocals, the drums, the guitar. They all work together to make an album that to me, defines metal.
So in the end, this album showed me what metal was all about, it also really opened my eyes to the fact that high pitched vocals could be metal as fuck as well. Just at the point of my life I never heard something that shredded and ripped as hard as this album did. This album and Judas Priest will always have a place in my metal heart.

Stand-Out Tracks(Though the whole album kicks ass):
Painkiller
Metal Meltdown
All Guns Blazing

Man, A Touch Of Evil is pretty much my favorite Priest song. That's gotta be in the stand out tracks no matter who you are

Great album. I remember getting it and thinking that it was the standard sound for Priest. Boy was I surprised when I checked out their other stuff.

Same here! None of their other stuff is bad in any way, but Painkiller will always be my favorite.

This!

For me, Painkiller was the definitive Priest album which I enjoyed the most.
