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

Best Metal Vocalists

*** /\ UNDER CONSTRUCTION /\ *** READ ME *** List of the best metal vocalists across all subgenres. The album that best exhibits their vocals will represent them -- not necessarily the best album they appear on. I will limit myself to the very top of each sungenre (i.e. death, black, doom, etc.) for variety's sake. Also -- AND THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT -- I consider several criteria, not just raw talent. Some of the criteria are vocal range, versatility, command of voice, fit/compatibility with band, feeling/emotion/energy and originality. Feel free to bitch and moan below. \m/

1. Judas Priest - Painkiller
2. King Diamond - Abigail
3. Savatage - Gutter Ballet
4. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
5. Iron Maiden - Powerslave

MZ's Favorite Death Metal Albums

My favarite death metal records. I avoided making this list for long because
a) I've suggested many of these albums on the lists of the others
b) many of them appear on my other lists
c) my knowledge on OSDM is extremely shallow
In the other words, this is a shit list and I admit it. Any help for improvement in the form of suggestions is appreciated.

1. !T.O.O.H.! - Pod Vládou Biče (Under The Reign Of The Whip)
2. Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius
3. Altars - Paramnesia

Fave Metal Albums/EPs 1991 -2000

Period 1991-2000 is perhaps one of the most understated periods of metal because of the decline of commercial metal and the emergence of grunge and then nu-metal.

But the period saw release of some kick arse releases. In fact for yours truly it was a major milestone in metal (does help I got into metal around 1992). These are my favourite albums/EPs from the period.

1. Alice In Chains - Dirt
2. Alice In Chains - Jar Of Flies
3. Anthrax - Sound Of White Noise
4. Arch Enemy - Stigmata
5. Blaze Bayley - Silicon Messiah
