    Death Angel - Act III
    Death- Symbolic
    Danzig - Danzig
    Dream Theater- Images and Words
    Exodus - Bonded by Blood

    Out of all of Sepultura they pick Roots. After being unable to sell my used copy I ended up throwing that cd out.

    ...except that it would feature heavily with:

    Rubbish NSBM bands
    Obscure late 80's Finnish DM
    Australian tech-death
    750 copy only vinyll NWOBHM bands

    ...and Hell awaits, natch. (Albeit SoH is waaaaaaaaaaaaay better)

    i think this kind of ranks are so stupid. everything is so subjective, everything is at the point of view of the people who works in the rank. there are a lot of bands who don't have nothing to do in it and a lot of bands unrecognized in that kind of ranks.
    whatever, can't understand those rankings, it's better to make oneself an idea of music and know what are the influential, best, worst or whatever bands

    But what's so bad about this list is that they're trying to say in a purely objective sense that Mastodon's latest has been more influential in a few months than anything by bands like Bathory, Mercyful Fate, Morbid Angel, Napalm Death, has been in years. I guess they don't even understand the definition of the word "influential" correctly.

    not a terrible list... a lot of great albums by the pioneers in the genre (metallica, slayer, iron maiden, sabbath, etc...)

    that sepultura album is atrocious

    nothing by pantera motley crue or anthrax should make any top 25 list - also leviathan is far superior to blood mountain by mastodon

    where is possessed - seven churches?? or scream bloody gore?? what about mercyful fate???

    1 of morbid angel's first 3 albums HAS to be in the top 25 IMO

    :lol:

    Lo Jack (taken from wikipedia) is a "vehicle tracking system that allows vehicles to be tracked by police after being stolen. The manufacturer claims a 90% recovery rate.[1] The name "LoJack" was coined to be the "antithesis of hijack," meaning the theft of a vehicle through force."

    My god, you'd think that metal ceased to evolve in 1988, based on that list...

    I would say this is very influencial for the new generation nu-metal movement along with the first korn but not real metal music.

    In a general metal sense morbid visions,schizophrenia and beneath the remains would have been much better choices. When I first got into metal these albums were bROOtal.
