Doomsday for the Deceiver - Flotsam and Jetsam
It is a potent album with great musicianship and excellent vocals from Eric "AK" Knutson. It's an underrated album from an underrated band.

Age of Quarrel - Cro-Mags
The music is angry and intense with a punk attitude and metal riffs. Unfortunately after their debut a series of lineup changes would hamper their progress and success, but this one is a must own.

Awaken the Guardian - Fates Warning
There is a definite progressive influence, but you can still hear the vestiges of a traditional metal band. The songs are complex, and Arch's voice is outstanding.

Energetic Disassembly - Watchtower
This album is unbelievably complex and technical with superb musicianship. The production isn't the best, but this is a band who helped pave the way for the prog metal genre.

The weak link in the band was vocalist Johan Lanquist, who did a serviceable but not memorable job. That would change with the addition of Messiah Marcolin on their second release. But even with average vocals, this album deserves a lot of respect for helping open the doom metal gates.

Somewhere in Time - Iron Maiden
"Stranger In A Strange Land" and "Wasted Years" were very catchy singles and this was a very commercial sounding album. It wasn't one of their all time great albums, but was still a very good release.

Pleasure to Kill - Kreator
1986 was the year of thrash, and this is an album that sometimes gets overlooked because of everything else that was released that year. But this album showed Kreator were a thrash and speed metal force to be reckoned with.

Megadeth really hit their stride on Peace Sells...But Who's Buying?, their second album. It's a speed metal classic with great songs like "Wake Up Dead," "Devil's Island" and "Peace Sells." The band's songwriting improved quite a bit from their debut album and 20 years later it still holds up extremely well.

Reign in Blood - Slayer
Reign In Blood is speed metal at its finest, with compact songs jam packed with riffs and head banging intensity. The lyrics are also filled with dark and disturbing images. Slayer released several fantastic albums, and this is their masterpiece.

Master of Puppets - Metallica
From the trademark thrash of "Battery" to the instrumental stylings of "Orion" to the iconic title track, Master Of Puppets is a sound of a band on top of their game. The songs are diverse and the musicianship is simply incredible.
