    Holy Diver is everything that epitomizes what the metal genre is. It's the greatest heavy metal record ever made. If someone ever asked me 'Hey Mike, what album explains what heavy metal is?', I would hand them this album.

    Every source I see says that Queensryche EP is from 1983 so I'm listing it.

    Anyway:

    1) Dio - Holy Diver
    2) Metallica - Kill 'Em All
    3) Mercyful Fate - Melissa
    4) Thin Lizzy - Thunder and Lightning
    5) Motorhead - Another Perfect Day
    6) Slayer - Show No Mercy
    7) Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind
    8) Ozzy Osbourne - Bark at the Moon
    9) Black Sabbath - Born Again
    10) Motley Crue - Shout at the Devil

    5 through 9 could honestly go into any order depending on my mood. I do love SNM as a Slayer album. A top three from the band for me.

    ... i need to listen to that Queensryche album ... but outside of 8 and 10, the rest of that list looks pretty damn solid. And you nailed it with Holy Diver, def one of the definitive albums

    I can get keeping Manilla Road in for 1983 just because EVERYONE seems to believe it (makes sense since the songwriting sounds like 1973), and since it was released at the very beginning of January, but it should be pretty well-established that Queensryche's first had an independent pressing run for months in 1982, which is what caught the ear of EMI in the first place.

    ya i'm gonna exclude queensryche from mine.

    i'm kinda tempted to put tyrant's 'hold back the lightning' in my list even though it's a single. so classic.

    Slayer began the musical framework for death metal, Europe began it for power metal. This is indisputable (unless we want to talk Hellhammer and Iron Maiden, but that influence was more spiritual and aesthetic than the fundamentals of what really make each sub-genre).
