I am a heavy metal junkie but unlike most metalheads, who are kept entertained by the popular thrash metal (i.e. Metallica) and Alt. metal (i.e. System of a Down) bands, I am much pickier than most. I enjoy heavy metal with melodic elements while still maintaining the heaviness and catchiness at the same time, and I’ve got to say, very few bands have managed to get it just right. But some bands have pulled it off and the very best albums of these bands have been brought here. So this is my top five metal albums of all time, enjoy!
