Greatest Metal album of all time – list #3!

9030425In continuing my personal search for the greatest Metal album of all time, I will now submit to the world, list #3! Here are 10 more solid choices, that I have personally chosen as nominees. Again, this is a delicate and important process for me, as a life long metalhead to be making such a personal choice of greatest Metal album ever. Agree or disagree, this journey for me making this decision is more fun than watching reruns of “Monster Quest – The Legend of the Lochness Monster.” Please refer to my prior “Greatest Metal Album of all time” articles for past nominees. (as always, the list here is in no particular order, nominees only)

1.   Def Leppard – “Pyromania”

2.   Motorhead – “Another Perfect Day”

3.   Nazareth – “Hair of the Dog”

4.   Judas Priest – “British Steel”

5.   Scorpions – “Blackout”

6.   W.A.S.P. – “Dying For The World”

7.   Slayer – “Show No Mercy”

8.   Slipknot – “The Subliminal Verses”

9.   Helloween – “Walls of Jericho”

10. Dio – “Holy Diver”

This series of articles will continue, as my quest for choosing the greatest Metal album of all time continues. Stay tuned.

  1. cool –
    I wore out several copies of Nazareth – “Hair of the Dog”.

    one on 8 track (yikes, the truth), a couple on cassette and one
    on vinyl before finally landing the CD copy that I have now.

    I also jammed on “Razamataz” esp. the track “Woke Up this Morning”, used to love that drum beat and bluesy/rock riffage.


    Metal hint, the answer to the other Indiana trivia question literally imitates the singer for NAZARETH.

    I was 8 years old listening to:

    Heart breaker, soul shaker
    Ive been told about you
    Steamroller, midnight stroller
    What they’ve been saying must be true


    Red hot mama
    Velvet charmer
    Times come to pay your dues


    Now you’re messin with a
    A son of a bitch
    Now you’re messin with a son of a bitch
    Now you’re messin with a
    A son of a bitch
    Now you’re messin with a son of a bitch

    Talkin jivey, poison ivy
    You aint gonna cling to me
    Man taker, born faker
    I aint so blind I can’t see


    I am sure my parents would not have APPROVED of that material. Thanks to my cousin Tim for turning me on to that (and Blackfoot’s “Train, Train” years later). I still have that on 8trk. BTW!

    yes I am getting old, so what?!!

    Curt King (of Nazareth)

  2. From that list you posted the best metal album for me would be either Dio’s “Holy Diver” or Judas Priest “British Steel”
    Hard to say which one for me.
