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

Guib's Essentials (Alphabetical Order)

Well, this is a very simple list and something you've probably seen a lot of other MS users do in the past. Basically, I'm just going to list the albums I wouldn't live without, my all time gems. There's no particular ''Genre'' that I'll be covering and I will also try to limit myself to one album per band and 3 favorite tracks (even though all the albums there have no bad tracks IMO, of course some exceptions may apply). Of course this is just an ''opinion'' list, meaning that I'm not saying these albums are all masterpieces or whatnot, it's just my personal favorites. I hope you'll agree with me and if not well, doesn't matter... Oh Also I'm only adding MS featured albums. I might add some comments in time for couple albums.

1. Absu - The Third Storm Of Cythrául
2. AC/DC - High Voltage
3. Alestorm - Black Sails At Midnight
4. Amon Amarth - Fate Of Norns
5. Anata - The Conductor's Departure

You Wouldn't Know What Good Art Is If It Hit You In The Face

Since we had the whole MS album art awards, I figured I would try and list out my favourites.
This is not in any order and has no relation to the music, there are bands in here that I don't like, but the artwork is still great.
I'm not quite sure of some of the illustrators and designers on some covers, so they have been left blank, if you do know who did them, let me know. If you think there are some artists that I would dig coz of similar work, just leave me a shout.
This list is not finished so I will keep adding covers that I like.
I don't like Derek Riggs work too much so don't ask me why an Iron Maiden cover is not on the list.

1. Baroness - Red Album
2. Baroness - Blue Record
3. Mastodon - Leviathan
4. Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Agorapocalypse
5. Kvelertak - Kvelertak

Favourite Album's Of The 00's

My favorite and most enjoyed album's of the decade 2000-2009. Roughly in order, but not exactly.

You can kinda tell from this list that I joined Metalstorm in 2009. I started discovering far more music thanks to this site, hence the number of '09 releases featured. I'm slowly starting to pick back through the top lists of previous years, so I expect more pre-'09 releases will be added to this list.

1. Opeth - Blackwater Park
2. Vektor - Black Future
3. Between the Buried and Me - The Great Misdirect
4. Sikth - Death of a Dead Day
5. Protest the Hero - Fortress
