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

The Worst "Popular" Metal Albums

I realize the importance of these albums to the genres, and the influence they have had. however I do not find these albums really that great and pleasurable due to the competition and elimination through these decades of musical evolution. I respect these bands for releasing something so creative, conceptual and also brought us to the new dimension in the past.

1. Atheist - Unquestionable Presence
2. Amorphis - Tales From The Thousand Lakes
3. Amon Amarth - Twilight Of The Thunder God
4. Accept - Restless And Wild
5. Accept - Balls To The Wall

Apothecary's Awesome Album Art Anthology

I know I probably speak for a lot of people when I say that, very often, the artwork that a band chooses for a particular album can be the icing on the cake, essential to giving a visual depiction that tops off the overall aesthetic of the music. There are plenty of albums that I simply couldn't imagine listening to without staring, zoned out, to the big ball of glorious that is their cover art. Here are some such albums. In alphabetical order by band. Links to full images of the covers have been provided, as well as credits to the artists.

1. Aarni - Bathos
2. Absu - The Sun Of Tiphareth
3. Atheist - Unquestionable Presence
4. Bathory - Blood Fire Death
5. Blue Öyster Cult - Fire Of Unknown Origin
