    I saw this done for Rock, now how about Metal?

    * One album - one band.

    * Must be a studio album

    * Please post the year of release

    * Metal...no Rock, please.

    I'll be back with my pick later...


    Credit goes to Groovy Man as this is just basically a spinoff (ripoff) of his thread.

    Seeing as the word best is subjective I will go with Megadeth Countdown to Extinction of 1992 since I think the title implies after 1990.

    It had a daunting task of following up the best thrash album ever in Rust In Peace and for the direction it took I think this is as good a metal album as the likes of Painkiller, Black Album, Vulgar Display etc with more of a groove to it as opposed to break neck speed. Has some memorable songs like High Speed Dirt, Skin O My Teeth, Architecture of Aggression, Captive Honour.

    I choose Brave New World (2000) by Iron Maiden. With Priest's "Painkiller" (1990) and "Candlemass" (2005) on a prize places.

    Perhaps my favorite actual metal album:

    While Heaven Wept-Vast Oceans Lachrymose (2009)

    Ah cool. Than I would have gone for Rust In Peace but I think Countdown deserves a little praise too. :heheh:
