49. Judas Priest - British Steel - (1980)




I've heard it said that the more important the individual, the shorter the introduction. I mean, when someone presents Barrack Obama, all that is required is, "Ladies and gentlemen... the President of the United States." So the only thing that really needs to be said about one of the biggest and most influential albums of all time is that when it was released, nobody had ever succeeded half so well at combining straight up metal with pop sensibilities. "Breaking the Law", "Metal Gods", "Living After Midnight"... do I really need to go on?


Spoiler for **** yeah!:

50. Iron Maiden --- The number of the Beast --- (1982)

As we reach the halfway point in our first 100 albums, it seems appropriate to mention the powerhouse album that took Maiden from NWOBHM top act to worldwide superstar status and true metal gods. With the addition of Bruce Dickinson on vocals, much of the punkish (shut up Batty) elements of the previous two albums were gone and in their place stylish, crisp and clean songs that still rocked like ****, such as "Run to the hills", "22 Acacia Avenue", the immense title track and of course the to-be-classic "Hallowed be thy name".

If an album was to redefine what traditional metal was all about and make it suddenly accessible outside the genre, Iron Maiden kicked down those walls with this, their third and most commercially successful album.

Just a request. Could people wait until the 66th album to add Reign In Blood? It would be appropriate. I won't demand to be allowed the honor, but I just ask people to wait till number 66.

51. Artillery - By Inheritance [1990]



A legendary Godhead of the technical thrash world, By Inheritance is a demonstration of precision, speed, immense talent, and masterful songwriting. Each member of Artillery is excellent at what they do and By Inheritance is the best example of them at the peak of their craft, a well calculated balance of speed, dexterity, aggression, and infectious harmony. Artillery bring forward a distinctly European style, especially with their leads and vocal melodies, and it's a fantastic breath of fresh air when you're feeling swamped in visceral American Bay Area pit anthems. Everyone is on point, the production is tight and clear, and every track is memorable. This album has stayed with me for many years now and has aged so well, one of my all time favorites, and absolutely essential listening for any fans of thrash.

52. Dismember Like an Ever Flowing Stream 1991


One of the definitive albums of the Swedish death metal scene. The album is a brutal exercise in how to massacre the opposition thanks to the vocals of Matti Karki, along with the backbone provided by the rest of the band. Most death metal bands take the same approach but few get as good as Dismember were right here, their death metal is a pure sonic assault on the senses.

53. Sepultura Roots 1996

An absolute masterpiece of metal and the album that the Max Cavalera era of the band, had spent their musical careers building up to. Sepultura were special and unique in that they were truly able to fuse the cultural heritage of their native Brazil with the brute force of extreme metal. Roots displays groove metal meets Brazilian tribal rhythms and the bands genuine anger against the inequality of Brazilian society seems at its zenith here.

54. Pantera Vulgar Display of Power 1992


Pantera released a string of classic metal albums once they became a groove metal band and a Vulgar Display of Power is that sound worn like a badge by the band. With songs like "A New Level" "Walk" and "****ing Hostile" the band defined the genre and also the album title is probably the best of the decade as well.

Would not the six hundred and sixty-sixth be better?

Just one point: you're running the titles and artistes together without any separator, so that for instance your first album looks like it's called "Dismember like an ever flowing stream"...

55. Panopticon --- Roads to the north --- (2014)
Talk about a meeting of the sublime and the savage! Austin Lunn, otherwise known as Panopticon, mixes some of the harshest gutteral vocals alongside heavy guitar riffs and moments of breathtaking beauty to create an album that you really have to hear to appreciate. Amazing stuff.

I've put them in italics (album title) if still not good enough I'll do a separator.
