Mighty Heavy Metal Albums

Some time ago I made a list for heavy metal albums I enjoyed the most. I got it cleaned up after ripening my tastes. I also tried to organize the list a bit, in subcategories. There is one album per band (choices were hard sometimes), with no strict order, but my favorite albums are usualy on top. I have still plenty of albums to check out and to give more spins, but I feel like I can post this for the moment. If you have any suggestions please let me know.

1. Judas Priest - Sad Wings Of Destiny
2. Tarot - Spell Of Iron
3. Sortilège - Sortilège
4. Mercyful Fate - Melissa
5. Talon - Vicious Game

1. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin
2. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
3. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
