    RYM ALBUMS LIST

    RYM EP LIST

    Reminder of the rules:
    - please submit at least *5* releases. But just remember, real men vote at 10.
    - first place in your rankings gets 10 points, 2nd gets 9, etcetc, 10th gets 1.
    - feel free to post more than 10, but only the top 10 will get points.
    - feel free to post less than 10, the same scoring will apply.
    - feel free not to rank your picks, in which case all ten picks will get 5.5 points.
    - if you're so much of a dick that you have to post more than 10 unranked picks, only the first 10 will count. In other words, go back to the third rule.

    Submit your lists by October 31st.

    High powered year for heavy metal. A lot of these I still regularly play. I’m not as crazy about Dickinson Maiden as most of you guys are apparently though.

    1. Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
    2. Pagan Altar - Judgement of the Dead
    3. Scorpions - Blackout
    4. Venom - Black Metal
    5. Motörhead - Iron Fist
    6. Tank - Filth Hounds of Hades
    7. Manowar - Battle Hymns
    8. Heavy Load - Death or Glory
    9. Riot - Restless Breed
    10. Iron Maiden - Number of the Beast

    HMs
    Legend - Death in the Nursery
    Accept - Restless and Wild
    Manilla Road - Metal
    The Rods - Wild Dogs
    Samson - Before the Storm
    Loudness - Devil Soldier


    Two bands named Warning released a s/t this year... I should check them out.

    1 Judas Priest - Screaming for Vengeance
    2 Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast
    3 Diamond Head - Borrowed Time
    4 Mercyful Fate - Nuns Have No Fun
    5 Venom - Black Metal
    6 Motorhead - Iron Fist
    7 Blue Oyster Cult - Extraterrestrial Live
    8 Black Sabbath - Evil Live

    Struggling to find 10 albums that I've actually heard from this year. May have to give a few albums that others have posted in their lists a spin to complete the top 10. Definitely not an era of metal that I'm super familiar with.

    manilla-road.jpg

    1. Manilla Road - Metal
    2. Venom - Black Metal *
    3. Mercyful Fate - Mercyful Fate
    4. Pagan Altar - Pagan Altar (AKA Judgement of the Dead)
    5. Witchfinder General - Death Penalty
    6. Geddes Axe - Escape from New York
    7. Metallica - No Life 'til Leather
    8. Satan - Into the Fire
    9. Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast
    10. Manowar - Battle Hymns

    Decided to include EPs and demos for this one, and will probably keep doing it going forward. Baroque is right, this is a great year for non-album releases.

    *In the underground these boys were infamous for giving birth to both the term "black metal" and the sound Euronymous would shamelessly rip off, but actually most people know Venom for being the inspiration behind crimsonfloyd's prestigious award given to whatever is the most overrated album in any given situation. For this honour alone they deserve a spot.
