    I'll only have 9 or so if I only rate what I've purchased...it would be maybe 15 otherwise so I won't rate. Hell Awaits would not be in my Top 5 most likely

    Just putting a list here in no particular order to revisit.


    Fates Warning - The Spectre Within
    Celtic Frost - To Mega Therion
    W.A.S.P. - The Last Command
    Bathory - The Return...
    Helloween - Walls of Jericho
    Exodus - Bonded by Blood
    Pentagram - s/t
    Overkill - Feel the Fire
    Megadeth - Killing is My Business... and Business is Good!
    Manilla Road - Open the Gates
    Saint Vitus - Hallow's Victim
    Possessed - Seven Churches
    Slayer - Hell Awaits
    Savage Grace - Master of Disguise
    Universe - s/t
    Kat - Metal and Hell (Idk I'd need to double check this one. On RYM it says '85 but MA says '86)
    Attacker - Battle at Helm's Deep
    Destruction - Infernal Overkill

    Also, I realize Running Wild's Bounded by Exile is this year too, but it's not my favorite by them. It's sorta a lesser Gates to Purgatory imo.

    characterising the most derivative song as innovative while dismissing the most unique and elaborate song as a venom rip off = peak hbb

    How are Hell Awaits or Hardening of the Arteries derivative? They're among the closest things to death metal for their time. Your implication that Venom was incapable of elaborate songs further demonstrates that you know nothing. I was talking in terms of style, not quality or ambition. It's a borderline trad metal song, even though it is still great. Crionics and Face the Slayer are great too, but they clearly don't fit the thrashier half of Show No Mercy.

    Recording completed Nov '85 so a lot more likely they took until '86 to release it.
