  2. Interesting list...some good stuff on there...i would have placed "Ace of Spades" a little higher and same with "Rust in Peace" As well as "Somewhere In Time" IMO

    Good to see "Holy Diver" right up there.

    Yeah Master of Puppets is a great album but definitely not No.1 in my opinion.

    My number Ones-Powerslave tied with Painkiller.

    Yeah Dio rules.

    I would have liked to see a more even distribution among bands - personally there's no way that two Metallica albums and two Iron Maiden albums appear before any Black Sabbath.

    And then again, what does "heavy metal" even mean? Iron Maiden was part of the "NWOBHM" when I was growing up (new wave of British heavy metal), AC/DC in the top ten is fine by me. I don't know, something about the early Sabbath and the way some of that stuff grooves (Into the Void, St. Vitus's Dance, Fairies Wear Boots) or bubbles ominously (Children of the Grave, Sweetleaf) is far superior to either Metallica or Maiden, as much as I love those bands...

    But that's just me of course!!! And this kind of poll is as much a popularity contest as a qualitative ranking... :ninja:

    Maybe,it's just me but I think Sabbath gets too repetetive after a few listens.

    Maiden>Sabbath=Metallica(till 'And Justice for all')>>>>>>>>>>Metallica(Metallica to St.Anger)
     

  6. It just goes to show you how different peoples opinions really are...
    Personally i hate Ozzy..i think the guy is a dolt. I also believe RJD always was/will be a better front man for Sabbath.

    But i respect your opinion.

    And i agree with the "quality rank poll" thing.
    No poll could ever satisfy everyone.
    Only thing we couldnt really argue about is that if the poll was done with actual album sales numbers worldwide...but i dunno how this one was concocted.
     
  7. I was surprised to see AC/DC on the list honestly....i never really took them as metal.

  12. sorry, master of puppets isn't the best metal album ever.


    anthrax doesn't appear til #41?

    KISS is NOT metal.



    Yep, this list is bogus.

    I don't think they take a liking to rapcore though I like biohazard.
