RYM’s Top 100 Metal Albums Of All-Time
Sure, there are always bands you expect to be represented in these lists (i.e. Metallica (ho-hum), Iron Maiden, etc.) but this list is interesting because it isn’t completely based on popularity, album sales, etc. It is based on how thousands of metal fans rated albums on a scale of 1 to 5, so there are definitely some pleasant surprises here. Clearly it is toward the top represented by the more popular bands, as they tend to generate a higher number of votes, but, as a list fanatic, this is as decent a top 100 as I’ve ever seen compiled by a group of people (which is always better than one person’s top 100)
(Remember, this is NOT my list, and I certainly don’t agree with much of it)
