100 Greatest Metal Bands

Pretty self-explanatory, with a couple caveats: first, this is mostly just a list of my favorite metal bands in approximate order (after the top 10 or so the order matters far less), with extra weight given to influence and timelessness of sound; and second, the albums selected are not necessarily the band's "best" album, or even my personal favorite -- they are the albums that I feel best represent the band's classic sound and/or well-represent the span of their career. List includes all sub-genres of metal and some post-metal metal. Feel free to spew your hatred below. \m/ (xx) \m/

1. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
2. Iron Maiden - Powerslave
3. Metallica - Master Of Puppets
4. Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
5. Slayer - Reign In Blood

Coolingsrock's List Of Technicalities And Progressiveness

1. After The Burial - Rareform
2. Allegaeon - Elements Of The Infinite
3. Animals As Leaders - Animals As Leaders
4. Animals As Leaders - Weightless
5. Animals As Leaders - The Joy Of Motion

2008: The Amphibian Halo (as In 'my Blurry View Of 2008')

Updated version of the list previously published here. You'll notice that the comments are a bit different for sure, as is the order:
1 to 3: best of the year (in preference order)
4 to 25: other great stuff (alphabetical order)

And then there were some average (sometimes bad, sometimes good) albums that didn't make it in this list, but they featured some of the most awesome songs of the year. Like Voices Of The Fallen by Battlelore, Dylath-Leen's Frozen Reflect On A Broken Mirror, and particularly Iced Earth's Come What May...

1. Textures - Silhouettes
2. Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
3. Burst - Lazarus Bird
4. ADX - Division Blindée
5. Cynic - Traced In Air
