    I'm really not sure Thunder and Lightning will make my list. Too many other good shit and that is one of my least favorite Lizzy albums.

    1. Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind
    2. Mercyful Fate - Melissa
    3. Manilla Road - Crystal Logic
    4. Savatage - Sirens
    5. Satan - Court in the Act
    6. Slayer - Show No Mercy
    7. Motorhead - Another Perfect Day
    8. Raven - All for One
    9. Tokyo Blade - Tokyo Blade
    10. Dio - Holy Diver

    Honorable Mentions:
    Saxon - Power & Glory
    Manowar - Into Glory Ride

    Heavy Load - Stronger than Evil
    Grim Reaper - See You in Hell
    Metallica - Kill 'Em All

    EDIT: Exchanged Sortilège for Manilla Road because I've sticking strictly to full-length releases. So, when 1984 rolls around, you know Métamorphose is going on there.

    hopefully i can even make it to ten

    1. Mercyful Fate - Melissa
    2. Hellhammer - Satanic Rites
    3. Slayer - Show No Mercy
    4. Manowar - Into Glory Ride
    5. H-Bomb - Coup de métal(
    6. Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind
    7. Witchfinder General - Friends of Hell
    8. Acid - Acid
    9. Heavy Load - Stronger Than Evil
    10. Sortilège - Sortilège


    Satan - Court in the Act
    Metallica - Kill 'Em All


    In the interest of possibly helping other releases crack the aggregated top ten, I placed Kill'em All at ten. I'm almost certain it will be on the list regardless of where I place it

    edit: I totally overlooked shit, kill 'em is out
    Also I'm probably a huge fuccboi, but can anyone please make a civil point as to why I should like Manilla Road

    It should be in. Even the band claims that it came out in 1983. I saw them do a celebratory 30 year anniversary performance of the album in 2013.

    1) Manilla Road - Crystal Logic
    2) Satan - Court in the Act
    3) Mercyful Fate - Melissa
    4) Dio - Holy Diver
    5) Manowar - Into Glory Ride
    6) Slayer - Show No Mercy
    7) Oz - Fire in the Brain
    8) Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind
    9) Exciter - Heavy Metal Maniac
    10) Grim Reaper - See You in Hell

    Honorable Mentions
    Metallica - Kill em All
    Jaguar - Power Games
    Trance - Power Infusion

    Some things like Savatage, Acid, and that Heavy Load album I haven't even listened to, but I doubt it would change my top 5 here anyways.

    I need to listen to Power Infusion. I've always loved that cover art but assumed the album would be uninteresting.
