"This is undeniably, the greatest heavy metal album ever recorded. Sabbath may have unleashed some of the heaviest riffs known to mankind, but no metal band has been as influential as Judas Priest or has any band ever deserved the credentials of the "Metal Gods"."
"This is the greatest Iron Maiden album ever, right up in the same alleyway and reign of power as the masterpiece "Powerslave". The best metal songs are "Sun and Steel", "The Trooper", "Flight of Icarus", and "Die With Your Boots On"."
"My favorite Black Sabbath album. Yes, this was the year Sabbath incorporated their music and made themselves more diverse by adding synthesizers. The critics weren't impressed. But who cares? "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath", the self titled song of the album title is probably the greatest metal song I've ever heard in my life."
"This might even be the heaviest Sabbath album ever. After success with "Paranoid" and their debut album, Tony Iommi decided to tune his SG down 1 1/2 steps to C#, so that the guitar tone would be even crunchier and it would be more doom and gloom than Sabbath had ever revealed. This is among their best work."
"I think this is the most extreme grindcore album I've ever heard and Carcass's best work. One of the greatest metal albums ever, it shows vast improvement from their first album and how they incorporated more melodic guitar playing within the extremely grungy distorted guitars."
"If you don't know what good metal is, Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious is the best way to start. The album was much more progressive than "Symphonies", but guitarist Michael Amott joined and helped out with the melodies. Longer song structures and sharply improved lyrics changed. They are as innovative as Priest and Sabbath in a different retrospect, respectively."
"The fastest and heaviest thrash metal album ever. Dark Angel coined the term of "The L.A. Caffeine Machine" because of their over the top extremely fast heavy riffs. Gene Hoglan earned the title of "The Atomic Clock" and is among one of the fastest drummers in the world. Too bad they split up, they are great thrash metal band."
"What's a metal list without "Reign in Blood"? Hey, this is by far the most influential thrash metal album ever, I'd cite this and "Darkness Descends" as the two fastest thrash metal albums, but both were released the exact same year in 1986. It's a short album, but it gets the job done."
"This is just a great album. Metallica is not the greatest band ever because they sold out, but this is just an awesome heavy metal album. Kirk Hammett does many wild guitar solos and this is probably the most complex album for guitarwork ever."
"Metal is about thrashing like a maniac, going into whiplash and just being insane! I'd say this is Megadeth's best album and Mustaine has never written a better song than the supreme "Last Rites/Loved to Deth"! You're a woos, if you don't like this album."
"And last, but not least, what's a list without Arch Enemy? If it weren't for the excellent performance of Carcass guitarist Michael Amott, this superior death metal group never would have formed. I think Arch Enemy has written better music than Carcass, but that is my opinion. Other than that, go buy all the Arch Enemy albums, you won't be disappointed."
