Welcome to what I consider the "Metal Bible" or in other words, a list of records of various genres in the arrays of Metal and Hard Rock that I deem essential or at least very recommended to listeners of hard and heavy music. This may be a very overwhelming list but I essentially try to collect all albums in the History of Metal that strike me as worthwhile. May this be a guideline for people that seek for an entrance to a particular genre or certain bands. In no means I am saying, that this list is indisputable by any means. I consider these my personal picks for albums that should be listened to by die-hard metal fans at least once. Hopefully you can discover some new music or relate with my picks. If I missed something that you would include in such a list, please tell me in the form of a comment. Enjoy! \,,/

1. High Tide - Sea Shanties
2. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
3. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin
4. Sir Lord Baltimore - Kingdom Come
5. Josefus - Dead Man

pandrstudios Metal History

These are MY Top 250 Albums that are featured on Metal Storm in chronological order to celebrate 50 Years of Metal.

Some bands are featured on this list with more than one album, which means that they are perticulary amazing to me.

I listen to a wide spectrum of metal genres, which is why I tried to keep it diverse and not focus on one genre.

1. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
2. Deep Purple - In Rock
3. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin IV
4. Uriah Heep - Demons And Wizards
5. Alice Cooper - Billion Dollar Babies

1. Riverside - Out Of Myself
2. Porcupine Tree - In Absentia
3. Riverside - Second Life Syndrome
4. Porcupine Tree - Deadwing
5. Opeth - Blackwater Park
