Great Debut Albums Throughout The Years

This is a list of bands that in my opinion have great debut albums.
I'm sure there are some years that will have more than one great debuts but I'm limiting to only putting one band per year.
The one that I put in the list is in my opinion the best debut album of that year.
Other than that I will put in the honorable mention below the list.

1. 1970-1979
2. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
3. 1980-1989
4. Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden
5. Venom - Welcome To Hell

SAY WHAAAAT? Apothecary's Favorites That May Surprise You

The idea for this list was given to me by mz when I expressed that I was more excited about Blut Aus Nord's upcoming Memoria Vetusta III than their Debemur MoRTi EP. As he said: "You are known as a person with intense love for experimental/avantgarde black metal and everyone by default expects you to love a MoRT-like album more that what is probably going to be a not-so-original-melodic black metal album." While I do prefer experimental metal, and tend to lean more towards black and doom, there are plenty of more orthodox and classic releases outside of these confines that I love as well, some of which are true guilty pleasure albums. I decided to throw in some non-MS albums as well, to show that my tastes definitely aren't limited to metal. In no particular order, we have...

1. Pantera - Vulgar Display Of Power
2. Marilyn Manson - Portrait Of An American Family
3. White Zombie - Astro Creep: 2000 - Songs Of Love, Destruction And Other Synthetic Delusions Of The Electric Head
4. Strapping Young Lad - Alien
5. Testament - The Ritual

Give In To Your Anger

We've had the Crushing and we've had the Dark, Harrowing and Ravaging, now it's time for the Anger. This list could be seen as a sort of Dance of the Dregs from those other two lists (as in albums that didn't get on either), but some of these albums to me might be classified as either or neither.

1. Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius
2. Acid Bath - When The Kite String Pops
3. Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Agorapocalypse
4. Alkerdeel - Morinde
5. All Pigs Must Die - Nothing Violates This Nature
