OK, difficult for most of us I imagine (was for me) but I just had to do it:

Top five favorite metal albums.
Could pick 50 but I really thought deep about those on a different level, and then the ones that touch me most out of those.

Mine (no order)

Toxicity - System of a Down
Elvenefris - Lykathea Aflame
Individual Thought Patterns - Death
Rust in Peace - Megadeth
The Mantle - Agalloch


-------------
Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer and Testament. The real Big Four of thrash metal!



Listen to doom metal, worship Satan

You know Ben, those are actually 6 albums. LOL

Right now, i can't number them. Would have to weight a lot of stuff to even think about a list. Ayreon and Dream Theater would be there, but there are a lot of other artists. . .

I couldn't reduce my top metal albums to a top hundred, let alone a top five!!! Shocked LOL
 
Off topic: I am intrigued by your list and your musical journey Jonas, especially how other genres affected your taste. Interestingly my tastes were very much affected by similar things, the sheer brutality of the likes of Napalm Death to the grunge era and (strangely enough)Trip Hop. Massive Attack, Faithless, Bjork, Portishead, Tricky et al brought a whole new dimension to my listening experience.

Yeah but in the last 5 - 10 years its like the circle is closed and Ive returned to my metal roots more and more. With my involvement on MMA, that development will probably only continue. But who knows I might grow tired of metal again sometime in the future like I did in the mid to end of the nineties. Ill never grow tired of the albums that I consider classics though.

I really couldn't give my top 5 metal albums right now.  It constantly changes.  Probably the most consistent presence on the list would be Master Of Puppets, although there is still the odd day where I convince myself that Justice is the superior Metallica album.

Since my top five naturally changes, I'd pretty much say anything I've rated here (or will rate) that I give as much as 3.5 out of 5 or more has a shot at any given day of cracking the top 5.  Sad Wings of Destiny is up there, so is Symbolic (Death) , Heartwork (Carcass), the first 5 King's X albums (the debut probably to a lesser extent), and many others.

Can't quite do 5, but I can pick 10 with some difficulty...

1. Pain of Salvation - The Perfect Element
2. Dream Theater - Scenes From a Memory
3. Edge of Sanity - Crimson
4. Opeth - Still Life
5. Death - Symbolic
6. Iron Maiden - Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
7. Pain of Salvation - Be
8. Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime
9. Dream Theater - Images and Words
10. Pain of Salvation - Scarsick

There are tons of other albums I love, but these albums are simply among my all-time favorite metal releases. Also, it's no coincidence that Pain of Salvation was featured three times. Tongue

My top 5 metal albums:

1. Colors - Between the Buried and Me
2. Annihilation of the Wicked - Nile
3. Images and Words - Dream Theater
4. Sol Niger Within - Fredrik Thordendal's Special Defects
5. s/t - Animals as Leaders

By this site's standards I should have Tool's Lateralus and NIN's The Downward Spiral on there, but I personally don't think they're metal. But that's an argument fit for a different thread. LOL

It's easily one of my favorite FW albums, and it's often overshadowed by some of their other works.

Pretty hard to choose 5 in any sort of true order without thinking of 100 others that could fall within the top 5,  but here are 5 favorites:
 
1. Ayreon - The Human Equation
2. Motley Crue - Shout At The Devil
3. Metallica - Master of Puppets
4. Twisted Sister - Stay Hungry
5. Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime

Just two short comments for the friends Umur and Stooge:

Of course I'm a hardcore fan of Alice In Chains. I've always consider them as the best band of the scene of Seattle and speaking personally I was never care if people called them Grunge, Alternative or Super Duper Post Metal. For me Alice In Chains are an original Hard Rock/Metal band with some psychedelic and post-punk influences. And as about "Dirt" maybe it's their best album. And you don't have so often the opportunity to hear songs like "Rooster".

My friend Stooge I totally agree with you.
It is a pity that this album is not attracted people's attention as other albums by this band like "Parallels" for example. I've see them live at the tour of "Pleasant Shade Of Gray" album and the band just played fantastic.

Here's my damn cheatin' list:

1. Iron Maiden: Most of their discography (except "Fear of the Dark, "The X-Factor", "Virtual XI", and "The Final Frontier"
2. Death: "Symbolic"
3. Judas Priest: "Painkiller" & "Turbo"
4.  Megadeth: "Rust in Peace" & "Countdown to Extinction"
5. Metallica: "Master of Puppets" & "...And Justice for All"

(apart from number one, it's pretty much random, as because I have so many favorite albums.... I'd probably have to do an unranked top 100 to give a more precise picture).

Yeah, those albums are awesome, too - especially "Scenes from a Memory"; my favorite tracks on that one is "Fatal Tragedy" with its shrink 'n' grow section.

"Images and Word" is another favorite of mine. "Seventh Son...", like most other Maiden albums, is an important part of my life, and "Symbolic" is the work of a genious.

"Kill 'em All" certainly is one of the most important, if not the most important, thrash metal releases ever. And, it's nice to see "Ram It Down" receive a bit of appreciation (it's not my own personal favorite by Priest, but I do think that it's a bit underrated).

Originally posted by harmonium.ro harmonium.ro wrote:

Lot of classics on that one. I personally love "Sweet Leaf" and "Children of the Grave".

Originally posted by whitedragon1969 whitedragon1969 wrote:

Judas Priest - Hell bent for leather


Or "Killing Machine" in Europe. And, yes, this is another absolute classic with some friggin' gerat stuff on it... funnily enough, my favorite is the more commercial "Evening Star", because it's got a terribly catchy chorus.

They're all awesome albums. I prefer "Keeper... I & II" to "Walls of Jericho", but there certainly is a lot of good stuff on "Walls..." once one gets used to Kai's weird voice. I agree on your assessment of "Damnation"

Originally posted by TinoBambino TinoBambino wrote:

Two classics (well a super classic and a cult classic) from legendary bands. "British Steel" is, of course, a milestone in metal music.

Originally posted by rushfan4 rushfan4 wrote:

5. Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime


Heh, yeah "Stay Hungry" contains two of the best youth rebellion anthems ever, but the other more obscure songs on the album are pretty good, too. "Operation: Mindcrime" is great, and I listen to it quite often. I love Geoff Tate's performance on this record.

After reading the whole thread (not that it's that long), i decided to throw some freshness into it.

1. Beyond Twilight - For The Love of Art and The Making
2. Guthrie Govan - Erotic Cakes
3. Opeth - Blackwater Park
4. Liquid Tension Experiment - Liquid Tension Experiment 2
5. Circus Maximus - The 1st Chapter

Couple of runner ups that deserve to be in there (probably AES, or DT), but you can't beat math.

And thanks for injecting some freshness! I honestly can't pick 5 top albums..so I tried to vary mine with genre.

Agreed about prog metal, I LOVE thrash but most extreme metal I have lost taste for now. Especially brutal tech ones. Prog metal is probably my favorite overall genre. Post metal is also amazing Heart and the current wave that is keeping metal fresh!

I had thought about naming Paranoid instead of H&H (I prefer it to H&H), but I sais I was excluding proto-metal and Sab's Paranoid dated from 1970....
 
soooo I went with post-75 albums.
 
Maaan, I played that Sad Wings vinyl until my stylus made the vinyl so thin that the disc was becoming transparent.... I never found the same excitement my their other albums.

I realize I am bumping an old thread but it's new to me so I wanted to chime in.
It is fascinating (to me) to read y'all's choices not knowing anything about your ages or homes or backgrounds. I love the bizareness (IMO) of some of the lists. And I feel free to say that because I am sure some of y'all will find my list bizarre.
Not in order:
Appetite for Destruction-GNR
Hell Bent for Leather-Judas Priest
Angel Dust-Faith No More
Blessed are the Sick-Morbid Angel
Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk-Emperor
 
5 that made me agonize over top five picked:
My Arms, Your Hearse-Opeth
Deicide-Deicide
"Them"-King Diamond
No More Color-Coroner
Slave to the Grind-Skid Row

I can not make one of my "Metal Top 5". There are days where I want to be a fan of Death and Black and days where only Hard Rock me like... Days Prog Rock (and Prog Metal)... 

In any case, these albums are recurring in my mind:
1. Macbeth "Romantic Tragedy Crescendo" (For the emotions it arouses in me)
2. Magnum: "Vintage Magnum" (For the music)
3. Dream Child: "Reaching The Golden Gates" (For the beauty of music and because the music is technical)
4. Mike Portnoy: "Prime Cuts" (For... Mike Portnoy, one of my all time preferred drummers)
5. Blind Guardian: "Tokio Tales" (For the music)
