Metal Rasputin's Absolute Favorite Albums Of All Time


Updated 14.4.2024

My rather personal and improvised take on the subject matter. The list is pretty wage, I'll be updating it a lot and the order might vary a little depending on some things, but they're all great and awesome records no matter what. If there are some great records missing, that doesn't necessarily mean I consider them bad, maybe I just forgot about them or just haven't listened to them enough to consider them personal favourites.

Limited to metal and rock albums found on Metal Storm. Most of them (at least 90%) are anyway, so doesn't matter. The absent ones are mostly more pop and synth oriented stuff and some really obscure jazz and fusion albums.

There is a lot of great stuff here.
Also a lot of stuff at pretty high ranks where I go like .
But that will probably be the same with you if you take a look at my Top 250 of all time.

Nice list … I think we have been on a similar musical journey. Particularly in that 1980s classic and the 1988 power metal / Noise Music phase
