    "last summer I really started to enjoy Hell Awaits, but Show No Mercy is so fucking rifftastic that it cannot be beat. Black Magic is still the best thrash song i've ever heard. So fucking good." - @rms

    i guess hellhammer would've made the top 10 pretty comfortably if everyone was counting demos?

    Incidentally @no country for old wainds, I'm very surprised you would rank Piece of Mind above your beloved Show No Mercy. What happened to the Maiden-hater who once said;
    Did you have a change of heart or have you always liked Piece of Mind especially?

    the former mostly haha. i posted in another thread (maybe on RYM actually) that i was a dumbass about bruce-era maiden for like ten years but they sound so much better to me now, almost sounds like a different band. part of it is that i first had a lot of exposure to maiden at a time when i wasn't very receptive to trad i guess, i needed to get past my superficial negative perception of them or something. i'm glad i have done!
