Metal Rambo's Absolute Favorite Albums Of All Time

Updated 24.1.2022

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.

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.

1. Marillion - Marbles
2. Anathema - Weather Systems
3. Iron Maiden - Somewhere in Time
4. Moonsorrow - Voimasta ja kunniasta
5. Moonsorrow - Kivenkantaja

Best Metal Vocalists

*** /\ UNDER CONSTRUCTION /\ *** READ ME *** List of the best metal vocalists across all subgenres. The album that best exhibits their vocals will represent them -- not necessarily the best album they appear on. I will limit myself to the very top of each sungenre (i.e. death, black, doom, etc.) for variety's sake. Also -- AND THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT -- I consider several criteria, not just raw talent. Some of the criteria are vocal range, versatility, command of voice, fit/compatibility with band, feeling/emotion/energy and originality. Feel free to bitch and moan below. \m/

1. King Diamond - Abigail
2. Judas Priest - Painkiller
3. Savatage - Gutter Ballet
4. Iron Maiden - Powerslave
5. Queensrÿche - Empire
