Metal Rambo's Absolute Favorite Albums Of All Time


My rather personal and improvised take on the subject matter. The list is pretty wage, I'll be updating it a lot and the order might vary a little depending on some things, but they're all great and awesome records no matter what.

Limited to metal and rock albums found on Metal Storm. Most of them (at least 90%) are anyway, so doesn't matter. The absent ones are mostly more pop and synth oriented stuff and some really obscure jazz and fusion albums.

1. Marillion - Marbles
2. Anathema - Weather Systems
3. Iron Maiden - Somewhere in Time
4. Reverend Bizarre - In the Rectory of the Bizarre Reverend
5. W.A.S.P. - The Crimson Idol

Empowering Albums For Powerless Losers

This is a list of all the power metal albums I have listened to that are worth remembering. Like my other genre lists, this is not meant to be a definitive guide to power metal or a binding judgment on what power metal is or is not. The list exists purely for my own organizational purposes and may contain bands or albums that are not strictly True Knights of the Eternal Thundersword.

1. Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth
2. Jag Panzer - Thane To The Throne
3. Sabaton - The Last Stand
4. Sabaton - Coat Of Arms
5. Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side

Record Of The Year

An attempt to walk through almost 40 years of metal records, trying to pick one (and only one) record each year. The record that should be listened to at least once in life.
Some years are difficult because there are too many classics and in many situations the record that made it in the list is not my favorite by the band, but the one who had weaker competitors (and some of my favorite bands are not in the list too, for the same reason).

1. AC/DC - Back In Black
2. Motörhead - No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith
3. Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast
4. Iron Maiden - Piece Of Mind
5. Metallica - Ride The Lightning

Recommendations appreciated.

2. Anaal Nathrakh - Desideratum
3. Battle Beast - Battle Beast

Helloween Discography (Ranked)

My personal ranking of all the Helloween studio albums. I found it surprisingly difficult to rank the albums from Master Of The Rings to The Dark Ride. I think all of those albums have great songs, but also have a few weak songs. The Keeper 1 and 2 albums sometimes switch position depending on mood. It is worrying that their 2 latest albums are in the bottom 3. My God-Given Right would definitely be bottom if the travesty that is Chameleon hadn't been released. I decided to leave Metal Jukebox out as it's a cover album.

1. Helloween - Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part II
2. Helloween - Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part I
3. Helloween - Walls Of Jericho
4. Helloween - Master Of The Rings
5. Helloween - The Time Of The Oath
