Mighty Heavy Metal Albums

Some time ago I made a list for heavy metal albums I enjoyed the most. I got it cleaned up after ripening my tastes. I also tried to organize the list a bit, in subcategories. There is one album per band (choices were hard sometimes), with no strict order, but my favorite albums are usualy on top. I have still plenty of albums to check out and to give more spins, but I feel like I can post this for the moment. If you have any suggestions please let me know.

1. Judas Priest - Sad Wings Of Destiny
2. Tarot - Spell Of Iron
3. Sortilège - Sortilège
4. Mercyful Fate - Melissa
5. Iron Maiden - Piece Of Mind

The Ultimate Metal Albums

My personal favorites. These albums are as perfect as an album can get, they always bring up the adrenaline and have in many ways changed the way I perceive music, expanding the horizons of metal in various ways. Most important of all they never get old or boring and therefore should be given a chance.

1. Angra - Temple Of Shadows
2. Helloween - Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part II
3. Adagio - Underworld
4. Judas Priest - Defenders Of The Faith
5. Stratovarius - Visions

Best to Worst Metal Albums of 1984

Why 1984? Because that's the year I was born. I'm not saying that my birthyear makes anything else significant, but I figured I would take an interest in every album that's as old as I am. Yup, it's that lame. Here they are from best to worst in my opinion.

By the way, only the albums I've listened to go on this list, which explains why I don't have Judas Priest's Defender of the Faith or any other big album on here yet. (I'll get to them, I promise!) This is definitely a work in progress as I listen to more metal.

1. Metallica - Ride the Lightning
2. Metal Church - Metal Church
3. Autograph - Sign In Please
4. Iron Maiden - Powerslave
5. Trouble - Psalm 9

Top 30 Instrumental/Guitar Heroes Albums Of All Time

Welcome to the sphere my friends. I'm talking about Albums made by Guitar Heroes, with extreme creativity and skills. As you know, this is not the bigger world and musical genre, because there are many amazing guitar players but not that much amazing Guitar Heroes albums which deserves a true attention. This is a sphere, then. For the little story of my life, I used to begin listening to metal with Yngwie, Joe and Steve Vai in 2005 or something near that. And when I build my first electric guitar in 2005, I first started to try Vai's songs while you all know EVERY beginer starts playing with Nirvana or something like that
Anyway, I hope you will enjoy my playlist. These albums are great to me, and it's always a pleasure to listen to them so many years after. I admit that GH albums are not my first preocupation today (if you take a look to my other lists, you will see), but this is the source of my passion, and each time I discover a good piece of them I bring it here, when I think about it. Enjoy

1. Yngwie Malmsteen - Rising Force
2. Cacophony - Speed Metal Symphony
3. Jeff Loomis - Zero Order Phase
4. Joe Satriani - Surfing With The Alien
5. Jason Becker - Perpetual Burn
