Pick your top 3 Metal albums!

I know there are some Metalheads here which is half the reason I come to Chiefsplanet.
The rules are simple, you must judge the previous poster's choices before you post your own. Make it 3 seperate bands please.

My choices...

Seventh Son of a Seventh Son-Iron Maiden (Maiden at their best and right before they turned into Grim Reaper)

Danzig-Danzig (simple and to the point Metal..without that AC/DC rawkishness)

Master of Puppets-Metallica

3 pretty obvious choices I know...

Solid choices there.

Metallica-Master of Puppets: Great choice, but I prefer the Black album.
Iron Maiden 7'th son: Loved Seventh Son, but still prefer Number of the Beast.
Danzig- Great band, but I've never really got into them. I'll agree with the "simple and to the point" metal sentiment

My three:

Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime

All three good choices. I've never really considered Ozzy era Sabbath to be "heavy metal," exactly. Dio was the first, imo, to really take them in that direction from the gloomy hard rock that typified the Ozzy era. But of the Ozzy era, Paranoid is arguably the quintessential Sabbath album. SFV is still my favorite Priest album, with Defenders, British Steel and Sin After Sin running neck and neck for second place. I would put it in the top five metal albums of all time, I think. Mindcrime is without a doubt the crowning achievement of Queensryche. Many people say that honor belongs to Empire, but I thought they went too commercial on that one. I'd definitely put Mindcrime in the top 10, I think. Here are my top 3, though:

Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys, Part 1 (ushered in the power metal era)

Iron Maiden - Powerslave (very difficult choice between that and Piece of Mind, with NoB running not far behind)

Metallica - Master of Puppets (the last and best Cliff Burton offering, 'nuff said)

OK, Be kind to a newcomer to Metal. I'm now realizing what I've missed up to now. As a newbie, my knowledge is very limited.
Helloween - have not heard anything by them yet
Iron Maiden - Powerslave is on my short list to buy, but I also haven't heard that album yet.
Master of Puppets. - Metallica is one of my favorite metal bands right now; I prefer the Black Album however.

My top three as of now;

1. Metallica - Ride the Lightning
2. Megadeath - Countdown to Destruction
3. AC/DC - Back in Black.

I'm currently listening to Kamelot - The Black Halo and it's pretty darned good if you ask me.

Good album! But their best, imo, is probably either Karma or The 4th Legacy. Check those out, they're great!

Anyway, sorry, didn't mean to derail the thread.

My favorites...

Metallica - ...And Justice For All (I like it, that's all I know)
Motorhead - The Best Of (I know, I'm a cheater!)
Type O Negative - Bloody Kisses

I don't know if Type O is the type of answers you were looking for, but they are cool, and I think they're metal.

Other than Between the Buried and Me ,those are probably a bit too obscure, good luck having anyone besides Reaper comment on those.

I've never heard of Glassjaw. Metal Archives hasn't either.So I checked thier MySpace and, yeah, not metal at all.
I like BtBaM. That's actually high praise from me.
I haven't heard anything from Glass Casket, but from what i hear they are a well-regarded death/metalcore band.

It was difficult for me to rate that 3. Is this your 3 favorite metal albums? Or what you think are the 3 best? I think most people are answering as their favs, so I will too.

My 3 favorite metal albums:
Ayreon - "The Human Equation" (Perfectly executed concept, enthralling folk-based blend of styles, great vocal and instrumental performances)
Opeth - "Still Life" (Haunting. Chilling. Explosive. Serene. Transcendent.)
Agalloch - "The Mantle" (Haunting. Chilling. Ambient. Serene. Transcendent.)
Special mention goes out to Sigh's "Imaginary Sonicscape" and Pain of Salvation's "BE."

This is very difficult. We all know this is going to be a sliding scale based upon age for the most part, right?

Not in any order:

Iron Maiden - Piece Of Mind tied with Number Of The Beast (I am not going by production value)

Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance (Defenders Of The Faith real close by this one)

Anthrax - Among The Living (I always considered them at this stage in their history as thrash metal, I would like to list Death Angel Act III as well, but it's simply not "heavy metal" in my opinion)

This list is flawed because Power Metal and Thrash are not simply "heavy Metal", but sub catergories of.

Nod to Nightwish - I am listening to Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part I right now (Twilight Of The Gods). It's the same one I have had since 1987. Part II was okay but nothing as good as that.

We should do a thread on thrash and power metal as well.

Obviously, if the thread asks for metal, then any form will work. I have a progressive album, prog-death album, and folk-black album.

Have you heard the newest one, Keeper of the Seven Keys: The Legacy? It came out October 31st, last year. It's really good, possibly the best they've done with Andi Deris on vocals, though still not as good as Keeper I, in my opinion.

If it's industrial metal, why not? There's industrial, and there's industrial metal. Rammstein, for instance, is industrial metal.
