Okay, I am sure there have been about a million top ten metal albums threads, but this one is a little different. A metal critic named Martin Popoff wrote a book last year called The Top 500 Metal Albums of All Time. While Martin is a high calibre metal scholar, he didn't make the list. Rather, he organized a world-wide poll of metalheads and he took the results and made the list from them. I thought it might be interesting to do the same on the various metal websites around the internet, and I thought I'd post one here. It's quite simple: post your top ten favourite metal albums, ranked, and I'll record them. Your number one choice is worth ten points; your number ten is worth one. I'd rather you not have any marked down as ties.

Regarding what is and is not metal... use your best judgement. I will not accept Britney Spears or Pink Floyd or Bad Company. I will accept AC/DC, KoRn, or Deep Purple. REGARDLESS of what I think of the band (first and third are awesome, second is fucking awful), I will likely include anything from within the realm of hard rock. However, this is a fucking metal website. Chances are you cats are going to pick all true metal records anyway.

Whether this is a top 500 or a top 100 or something in between depends on how many votes I get. Happy voting.

Also, if the mods choose to delete this I'll keep my mouth shut, particularly if it's been done before. If so, my apologies.

1. Metallica - Ride the Lightning
2. Dream Theater - Awake
3. Black Sabbath - Sabotage
4. Alice in Chains - Dirt
5. Judas Priest - Sin After Sin
6. Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime
7. AC/DC - Let There Be Rock
8. Anthrax - Among the Living
9. Rainbow - Rising
10. Carcass - Heartwork
