The Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums: 60 to 51
Moshing through the Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time. Albums are ranked by their staying power and how many repeat listens they earned according my Last Fm. 60-White Zombie- La Sexorcisto The change in direction from Make Them Die Slowly was a shock for me at the time but the album grew on me a few drug summers later.
59- the Cro-Mags- Best Wishes
This hardcore band crossed over into metal once they parted ways with their original singer and let their crazy bassist take over.
58-Power Mad- Absolute Power
One of the best metal albums that you missed out on. These guys blending soaring yet aggressive vocal with catchy thrash.
57-Suicidal Tendencies- How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can't Even Smile Today Venice Beach skate punks hit the perfect blend of punk speed with metal. 56-Motorhead - Overkill This album holds more shades of of Lemmy's old band Hawkwind than the others. 55-Manowar -Into Glory Ride Metal for people who took Masters of the Universe seriously. 54-Gwar- Scum Dogs of the Universe This album proved it wan't just about their costumes.
53-Exodus- Bonded By Blood
This ripping debut has them second only to Slayer in terms of malicious thrash.
52-Metal Church- Metal Church
The crossed the classic metal sound over into a thrash attack, with the undeniable vocals of David Wayne.
51-Megadeth - So Far So Good So What
Rust In Peace is a killer album no question and Peace Sells ... put them on the map in mainstream metal, but I have clocked in more listens of this album.
