5 METAL Albums I Can’t Live Without: The 80’s Edition, Part 1

Since we all love to revisit our favorite Metal albums from yesteryear, here are my Five Metal Albums I Cannot Live Without: The 80’s Edition, Part 1. This list is in no particular order and I do include EP’s for this Metal discussion. If you cannot live without any of the following Metal albums as well, feel free to blab about it with a comment. Metal be thy name!

Ozzy Osbourne - The Ultimate Sin - promo cover pic - #17770

Ozzy Osbourne – The Ultimate Sin

Released in 1986, this is the fourth studio album from the Godfather Of Heavy Metal. With Jake E. Lee on guitar and a powerful lineup of songs, The Ultimate Sin is an album that screams good-times 80’s for me. Never Know Why, Fool Like You and Shot In The Dark are my favorite three songs on this LP. Rest in peace, Randy Castillo.

Metallica - Ride The Lightning promo album pic #2

METALLICA – Ride The Lightning

Before there was a Master Of Puppets, there was Ride The Lightning from 1984. I can remember holding this LP jacket in my hands and staring at both the front and back covers, wondering how a band could play such unbelievable Heavy Metal. It did not take me very long to realize what Thrash Metal was about, once I took ownership of this album. Rest in peace, Cliff Burton.

Anthrax - Armed And Dangerous - promo EP cover pic - #3377JBSIAMO

ANTHRAX – Armed And Dangerous

Released in 1985, this was the first EP from the great Anthrax. I bought it at a (now defunct) chain store named Strawberries Records & Tapes. I bought this EP without hearing a single song from it and it did not disappoint! The cover song of Sex Pistol’s God Save The Queen is whiz-bang, baby!

Queensryche - self-titled EP - #80SQMO

Queensrÿche – (self-titled)

Released back in 1983, this self-titled Queensrÿche EP is as necessary to my Metal world as bottled water is. I remember first hearing the song Queen Of The Reich on a syndicated FM radio show called: Metal Shop. When I heard this song, my life changed for the better, I swear it. My other favorite song from this EP is The Lady Wore Black and it’s a Metal gem!!

Nuclear Assault - Handle With Care - promo album cover pic - #80SNAMO01

NUCLEAR ASSAULT – Handle With Care

From 1989, this was the third studio album from Nuclear Assault and I still have it on cassette! Metal be thy name! It rages from start to finish and now I am pumped-up to slap this cassette into my car stereo! With such songs as Critical Mass, Surgery and a load of others, this album is a keeper! Nuclear Assault are a Thrash Metal band that (without a doubt) helped shape their genre into the Metal force it is today. ‘Nuff said.

As reported on the Brand New Machine Facebook page, via vocalist Brantly Thompson:

With a heavy heart and a lot of tears we say goodbye to our friend, our brother and co-founder of Brand New Machine, Jon Ster. He was the wittiest, tender hearted and one of the most talented guys I have ever met. His laugh was infectious and he would light up a room just by walking in. The world was a much better place with Jon in it and he left us a legacy of great music, a beautiful daughter and tons of amazing memories. I’m going to miss you and your famous one liners my friend. Thank you for being a part of my life. Rest well, I love you brother.
