Welcome to the forum! Clap

Nice list, I like a few of those bands although many of them I haven't heard of. It's pretty impossible for me to come up with a top 10, as it often changes.

Yes, welcome progresearcher!

Like Khaliq, I couldn't put a list together myself. I would say that bands like Kansas, PT and Queen are amongst my most listened to artists, and Sabbath is also my all-time favourite band. I do like Seiges Even and Rush aren't too shabby either ;-)

Blind Guardian
Iron Maiden
Rebellion
Anubis Gate
Within Temptation
Ayreon
Running Wild
Grave Digger
Wuthering Heights
Epica

To name just the first ten that come to mind. But limiting to ten I do leave others out that deserve a place just as much. Iced Earth, Аркона, Cruachan just to name a few others.

Almost impossible of course, but here is a list of some of my favorites:
 
1. Slayer
2. Atheist
3. Nevermore
4. Cynic
5. Type O Negative
6. Psychotic Waltz
7. King Diamond/Mercyful Fate
8. Voivod
9. Demolition Hammer
10. Morgoth
 
...and there are many, many more, but the above artists have all released at least one album I feel is a masterpiece. Many of them more than one album.

Many thanks, folks, for supporting the topic!

http://www.progressor.net/review/bl1_metal.html - there's a lot of metal bands on this bandlist, all the albums being rated. My husband is the editor of the site, BTW.
