    More metal than Don't Break the Oath? Good album but not as sinister

    i think Melissa is much more "metal" than DBtO.

    In terms of the songs themselves, not the full albums:

    The Last In Line > Holy Diver.

    The Last In Line is the single best song Dio ever put out as a solo band.

    Was just about to say Manowar myself.

    :kickass:

    I don't really like Painkiller either.

    For me, the most traditional Metal album would be Mob Rules or Angel Witch or something, though most of the choices named in here I wouldn't disagree with in any meaningful way.
    Fuck, Don't Break The Oath and Heaven & Hell are great choices too.
    Hell, Piece Of Mind should get a mention.

    PAINKILLER is just ridiculously headbangable fun. obviously doesn't hold a candle to their best work but its surface pleasures alone make it superior to some of the lesser priest albums.

    Melissa is a fine candidate for most METAL imo. It's pure trad with no hard rock-y songs, but is excessive and extreme in so many ways. Could also mention the first Slauter Xstroyes album.

    Also, while I wouldn't say JP's Demolition is one of their best beyond the 70s, it is a good album. Better than Defenders, at least.

    On the subject of older bands, have you listened to Iron maidens new release? It wasnt bad, but for me dragged on way too long

    Easily

    Listened to it twice, and the only song I'm really liking is If Eternity Should Fail. The songs don't suffer from repetitive choruses or predictable structure as much as some of the previous ones, but there don't seem to be a lot of ideas on it. Plus a lot of self-plagiarism.

    so i actually decided to listen to some traditional metal its not that bad, listening to the first few songs on this album and Saxons pretty good, take my earlier words for granted, they mean nothing now

    heres the compilation video I'm watching now:

    I would tend to agree.

    I like that it's broken into two digestible pieces. The first cd is great. The second is marred by the 18 minute outro but otherwise pretty decent. I've also had If Eternity Should Fail stuck in my head all weekend

    Edit: Saxon was great when they were on task btw. I don't even mind their attempts at hair metal but I can see why people despise that era.

    I like Destiny more than a lot of Saxon's earlier stuff tbh.

    Grim Reaper is definitely my favorite so far, destroys anything else I've heard

    already getting to hard for me to listen to though, they repeat riffs in the music I've heard so far, way too much, a lot of black metal does that too but for some reason i can't stand it
