Here is the best album by 35 legendary metal bands.This is a classic case of the best of the best, exploring more than 50 years of greatness in heavy metal and many representatives of its numerous subgenres — thrash, death metal, black metal, doom metal, goth metal, progressive metal, power metal… you get the point.It’s a bit mind boggling to think that metal has been around almost as long in the 21st century as it was before the turn of the millennium, but we’re getting closer and closer by the year if we’re abiding by the generally universal rule that it began in 1970 with the release of the first Black Sabbath album.What these 35 albums prove is that metal is just as genuine now as it was back when it was enjoying mainstream commercial success, racking up platinum certifications with near ease.READ MORE: Every Thrash Metal ‘Big 4’ Album Ranked From Worst to BestOpinions on the very best album by any particular band will naturally differ and, for some artists, it feels like a couple of different records can fairly be called a career best.If you happen to disagree with some of what you see below, that’s fine!
