    Mine has to be 1993, the list of classic albums that were released that year seems endless:

    SEPULTURA - Chaos A.D.
    TYPE O NEGATIVE - Bloody Kisses
    PARADISE LOST - Icon
    SENTENCED - North From Here
    EDGE OF SANITY - The Spectral Sorrows
    DARK TRANQUILLITY - Skydancer
    DISSECTION - The Somberlain
    DISMEMBER - Indecent & Obscene
    SEANCE - Saltrubbed Eyes
    CRYPT OF KERBEROS - World of Myths
    KATATONIA - Dance of December Souls
    ANATHEMA - Serenades
    ENTOMBED - Wolverine Blues
    METALLICA - Live Shit: Binge & Purge
    NECROPHOBIC - The Nocturnal Silence
    UNANIMATED - In the Forest of the Dreaming Dead
    MORBID ANGEL - Covenant
    EMPEROR - Emperor EP

    Not necessarily classics for me personally, but generally definitely considered classics:
    IMMORTAL - Pure Holocaust
    DARKTHRONE - Under a Funeral Moon

    And I probably forgot some..

    Only love for early 90's?

    I don't think I can narrow it down to a year, I love too many albums across the last 25 years.

    I am lame though, I have never cared for a lot of the earliest metal in the 80s. A lot of good genres were pioneered in the early days but a lot of the pioneering stuff is boring as hell or sloppy or just uninteresting after growing up with the more refined stuff that came later. I like very few albums from those really early days with some notable exceptions of course. I dont even like early to mid 80s Metallica.

    Metal started getting great in the early-mid 90s for me and kept getting better with your usual ups and downs each year.

    Too hard to choose a year...

    I know, I should fakk off and go listen to Limp Bizkit for being untrvv. :)

    So I have come to the conclusion that it is impossible for me to determine my favourite year in metal...I have however narrowed it down to three choices.
    I also did not look at the last ten years between 2005-2015 as I do not think enough time has passed yet to truly determine the lasting value of albums released within that timespan.

    Let's start with 1984, the glorious year for true metal of steel!

    Anthrax - Fistful of Metal
    Armored Saint - March of the saint
    Bathory - Bathory
    Celtic Frost - Morbid Tales
    Cirith Ungol - King of the dead
    Dio - The Last in Line
    Exciter - Violence and force
    Grave Digger - heavy metal breakdown
    Grim reaper - See you in hell
    Helstar - Burning Star
    Iron Maiden - Powerslave
    Jag Panzer - Ample Destruction
    Judas Priest - Defenders of the faith
    Manowar - Hail to england
    Manowar - Sign of the hammer
    Medieval steel - medieval steel
    Mercyful Fate - Don't break the oath
    Metal Church - Metal Church
    Metallica - Ride the lightning
    Pretty Maids - Red, hot and heavy
    Running Wild - Gates to purgatory
    Saint Vitus - Saint Vitus
    Saxon - Crusader
    Slayer - Haunting the chapel
    Sodom - In the sign of evil
    The Rods - Let them eat metal
    Twisted Sister - Stay hungry
    Van Halen - 1984
    W.A.S.P. - W.A.S.P.
    Warlock - Burning the witches

    Then we have 1992. While not a year for as great a number of classics as other years of the early ninties four of my personal all time favourite albums were still released this year.

    Black Sabbath - Dehumanizer
    Blind Guardian - Somewhere far beyond
    Bolt Thrower - The IVth Crusade
    Burzum - Burzum
    Cannibal Corpse - Tomb of the mutilated
    Darkthrone - A blaze in the northern sky
    Danzig - III How the gods kill
    Deicide - Legion
    Dismember - Pieces
    Edge of Sanity - Unorthodox
    Hypocrisy - Penetralia
    Iced Earth - Night of the stormrider
    Immortal - Diabolical Fullmon Mysticism
    Liers in Wait - Spiritually Uncontrolled Art
    Malevolent Creation - Retribution
    Manowar - The Triumph of steel
    Merciless - The Treasures Within
    Motörhead - March ör die
    Rage against the machine - Rage against the machine (As a kid I liked them)
    Seance - Fornever Laid To Rest
    Unleashed - Shadows in the deep
    Vader - the ultimate incantation
    W.A.S.P. - The Crimson idol

    Then finally we have 2002. A shitload of great albums, most of whom I still listen to, were released back then. If you would force me at gunpoint to choose just one year then this would probably be it.

    Amon Amarth - Vs the world
    Bathory - Nordland
    Behemoth - Zos kia cultos
    Black Label Society - 1919 Eternal
    Blind Guardian - A night at the opera
    Bloodbath - Resurrection through carnage
    Cannibal Corpse - Gore Obsessed
    Deströyer 666 - Cold Steel...for an iron age
    Dio - Killing the dragon
    Doomsword - Resound the horn
    Gospel of the horns - A call to arms
    Halford - Crucible
    Hammerfall - Crimson Thunder
    Immortal - Sons of northern darkness
    Immolation - Unholy Cult
    Insision - Beneath the folds of flesh
    Kaamos - Kaamos
    Malign - Divine Facing
    Manowar - Warriors of the world
    Manowar - The Dawn of battle
    Motörhead - Hammered
    Necrophobic - Bloodhymns
    Nightwish - Century Child
    Nile - In Their Darknened Shrines
    Running Wild - The Brotherhood
    Satyricon - Volcano
    Thunderstone - Thunderstone
    Thyrfing - Vansinnesvisor
    Tyr - How far to asgaard
    Vader - Revelations

    Honourable mentions are 1980 and 1986.

    Yeah, not remotely possible for me. Far too many years with great offerings, and the ones with smaller amounts could likely be amped up with I put in the time to listen to more released at the time.
