Iron Maiden Ranking 1980-2021

All time favorite band, Iron Maiden, was the first heavy metal band I heard with the album Killers in early eighties. Today I found myself making a ranking of their discography. No one can deny the first 10 years was the golden years of the band and the records are in the top of every list , after that the band still making great songs even with Blaze Bayley and Im still believe that he done a great job and he deserved more attention and respect…
so , no bad records just my personal taste of one of the greatest bands of heavy metal

1. Iron Maiden - PowerSlave
2. Iron Maiden - Somewhere in Time
3. Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind
4. Iron Maiden - Killers

AotY, 1970 Through Present

My personal hard rock/heavy metal album of the year that I own.
Truthfully, for several years, I just gave up trying to figure out what was in 2nd place (and sometimes, even in 1st).
Some years have so many options....

1. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
2. Black Sabbath - Master Of Reality
3. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath Vol. 4
4. Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
5. Blue Öyster Cult - Secret Treaties

Favorite Album Endings

There are various types of album closers: those that combine everything from the beginning of the album (Recharging the Void), the last punch in the face (Dyers Eve), the standout best song of the album (Hallowed Be Thy Name), the melancholy instrumental outro (No Dreams Breed in Breathless Sleep), and many other types!
These are my favorite album finishers! Enjoy!

1. Vektor - Terminal Redux
2. Death - Symbolic
3. Metallica - Ride the Lightning
4. Megadeth - Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?
5. Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast

These are (in my opinion) the best metal songs of all time. I've limited myself to choosing a maximum of TWO SONGS PER ALBUM so that there can be some diversity in the bands that appear.
The genres are mainly heavy, thrash, and death metal - with some black and power metal too.
Format: Band - Album - SONG

1. Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast
2. Iron Maiden - Powerslave
3. Judas Priest - Painkiller
4. Judas Priest - Defenders of the Faith
5. Dio - Holy Diver

1001 Metal Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

An ongoing list for personal use as well as for reference for beginners (& veterans alike). This is solely my personal opinion and taste (Death & Prog mostly but do give every genre a try). Basically will include albums I've rated 8 & above. Sorted by year since I'll need a Venn diagram to sort by genre (seriously MS please make it happen if possible). Will feature multiple releases per year (obviously) and per band (since if a band is putting out better albums it deserves more recognition). Keeping the metal faith alive from India

1. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin
2. King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King
3. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin III
4. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
5. Uriah Heep - Look At Yourself
