Dio - Holy Diver
Queensryche - Rage For Order
Fates Warning - No Exit
Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
Iron Maiden - Piece Of Mind
Dream Theater - Awake
Slayer - Show No Mercy
King Diamond - Abigail

There are many more I could pick....but I'm sticking to 10.

^I think there are a couple of yours I´d probably also put on my list. "Dirt" in particular, but also "South of Heaven", "Appetite" and "Blessed". I´d probably pick "Abigail" and not "Conspiracy" and "Don´t Break the Oath" over "Melissa", but yeah King Diamond would also be heavily represented on my list.

In no particular order but the ones towards the top obviously came to mind first:

FNM-Angel Dust
GNR-Appetite
Priest-Unleashed
Slayer-South of Heaven
Morbid Angel-Blessed are the Sick
Deicide-s/t
Death-Symbolic
Angel Witch-s/t
Black Sabbath-Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Mercyful Fate-Melissa
Skid Row-Slave to the Grind
Megadeth-Countdown to Extinction
Opeth-My Arms, Your Hearse
Helloween-Keeper of the 7 Keys Part 2
Emperor-Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk
Cradle of Filth-Cruelty and the Beast
Alice in Chains-Dirt
Led Zeppelin-Physical Graffiti
Rush-2112
King Diamond-Conspiracy

That is 20. That was difficult. The first 3 are always close to my mind, regardless of genre discussed.
I would gladly take poor quality copies so I could stretch my gigs. :)

^The premise was 10 - 20 albums...I guess you´ve reached that limit by now Big smile. But I know the feeling. I don´t think I would be able to chose either...an impossible task.

Amorphis - Skyforger
Devin Townsend - Ocean Machine: Biomech

Those are the only two metal albums I would want to listen to for who-knows-how-long, based on their depth and the fact that I will be on that island for an indefinite amount of time.  I was actually going to make a desert island reference in my review of Ocean Machine, but it was never written.  I really gotta get around to doing that.
