Wasn't sure which thread to put this one, but anyway...

New list from Rolling Stone about 100 Greatest Metal Albums.

Only ones I am into are (in order from lowest to highest as they are in on Rolling Stones list):
1. Fallen - Evanescence
2. Images and Words - Dream Theater
3. Body Count
4. Stay Hungry - Twisted Sister
5. Blackout - Scorpions (should be in 100 Greatest ROCK albums, not metal)
6. Vivid - Living Colour
7. Human - Death (I prefer Spiritual Healing)
8. Operation: Mindcrime - Queensryche
9. Agent Orange - Sodom
10. Meantime - Helmet
11. Pyromania - Def Leppard (again, ROCK, not metal)
12. Rising - Rainbow (ditto)
13. South of Heaven - Slayer
14. Bonded By Blood - Exodus
15. Shout At the Devil - Motley Crue (ditto)
16. Stained Class - Judas Priest
17. Lightning To the Nations - Diamond Head
18. Far Beyond Driven - Pantera
19. POWERSLAVE - IRON MAIDEN
20. Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath
21. Women and Children First - Van Halen (I prefer the 1st self titled lp)
22. Kill 'Em All - Metallica
23. Master of Reality - Black Sabbath
24. Countdown to Extinction - Megadeth
25. Sabotage - Black Sabbath
26. Seasons In the Abyss - Slayer

32. Among the Living - Anthax
33. Rust In Peace - Megadeth
34. Holy Diver - Dio
35. Diary of a Madman - Ozzy
36. Vol. 4 - Black Sabbath (good album but too high on the list)
37. IRON MAIDEN
38. Screaming For Vengeance - Judas Priest
39. Ride the Lightning - Metallica
40. Vulgar Display of Power - Pantera
41. Blizzard of Ozz - Ozzy
42. Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? - Megadeth

Highly technical and aggressive (but without growls) progressive/power metal. Some people might be familiar with the vocalist Daniel Heiman who sang for Lost Horizon. Kinda like Symphony X of old with less neoclassical elements and way more aggressive. @Mosh, @Jer, @MrKnickerbocker you guys might like it.

Body Count 3rd :lol::lol::lol:

I had it back in the day but at best it's a novelty album and can't be taken seriously.

Thanks — an interesting listen, though it’s way too busy for my personal taste.

Seems like Heiman finally decided to come out of his hole, since he recently did that Warrior Path album as well…
