The Ultimate Metal Albums

My personal favorites. These albums are as perfect as an album can get, they always bring up the adrenaline and have in many ways changed the way I perceive music, expanding the horizons of metal in various ways. Most important of all they never get old or boring and therefore should be given a chance.

1. Angra - Temple Of Shadows
2. Helloween - Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part II
3. Adagio - Underworld
4. Judas Priest - Defenders Of The Faith
5. Stratovarius - Visions

After Five Years Of Metal: My Top 20 Favorite Albums

The end of 2013 marks the end of the fifth year of my journey into metal. I had listened to a select few songs prior to that, but around five years ago, I started to delve into the genre and I've discovered a lot of great music as a result. Much of my success I owe to Metalstorm for providing such an excellent platform. I want to express my sincere thanks to everyone who keeps this site running. I mostly enjoy the more melodic genres of metal, so don't expect a lot of extreme stuff. Also, please keep in mind that the following list is not a list of what I consider to be the best metal albums of all time or anything like it. It is simply a collection or a countdown of the albums that I have enjoyed the most during my journey so far.

1. Kamelot - The Black Halo
2. Rush - Hemispheres
3. Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
4. Crimson Glory - Transcendence
5. Immortal - At The Heart of Winter
