Default Metal Album Survivor [1st Wave Black Metal Division]

Well, William the Bloody seems to have stumbled upon the perfect format to get people into music discussion, so I'm stealing his idea for a metal album thread. Given the sheer number of metal albums out there, I'm gonna have separate battles for each sub-genre, and when all battles are finished, we'll have a "Final", where the winners of each sub-genre battle go head to head, so that we can finally have a definitive answer to what is the best metal album of all time.


Finished Battles:

Traditional Metal
Thrash Metal
Death Metal
Sludge/Stoner Metal
Proto-Metal
Black Metal
Alternative Metal
Doom Metal
Power Metal
Avant-Garde Metal
Grindcore
Glam Metal
Industrial Metal
Progressive Metal
Folk Metal
Drone Metal
Melodic Death Metal

Still to Go:

Groove Metal/Post-Thrash
Post-Metal

Death Angel- The Utra-Violence
Nuclear Assault- Survive

Same. Only listened to the first 5 albums. Won't have time to catchup. I'll join in on Trad Metal, as that's the only area I know well enough.

There's going to be a lot of people on here that haven't heard enough for each category, myself included.

Alright, I've revised the rules.

1. Each list will be limited to ten albums.

2. At this point, you will vote for two bands, and one will be voted off.

Adjust votes accordingly.

Too thrash for trad, almost too trad for thrash, so I went with thrash. Still, it's been taken off the list so it's irrelevant at this point.
