Generally they aren-t metal but c-mon, Flick of the Switch and FTATR are NOT pure hard rock albums. Songs like Badlands, Spellbound, COD, Evil Walks This House is on Fire etc.??!! These songs are closer to Heavy Metal (nothing wrong here, I very like Heavy Metal as well) than to hard rock. LOL

master of puppets is the best metal album of all time. Although, acdc is my favorite band of all time(I almost jizzed when i saw them live) they are not metal they are hard core rockers.

YES! Master of Puppets is the greatest heavy metal album of all time! No doubt about that!

Some that come close: Metallica's And Justice For All..., Black Sabbath's Paranoid, Judas Priest's British Steel, and System of a Down's Toxicity

Very Good album. Are there any new bands that play good metal now?

I love metallica, but I feel the best metal album is Paranoid by Sabbath, cause it started it all.

Why album Master of Puppets? Why not Screaming for Vengeance- Judas Priest, Iron Maiden-s Killers, Ace of Spades-Motorhead, Countdown to Extinction- Megadeth, 5150-Van Halen or Season Of the Abbys by Slayer?

The best live heavy metal album of all tames is (maybe) Unleashed in the East by trully metal Gods - Judas Priest. Cheers...

Not really, besides the old metal giants, and the Foo Fighters are kind of new, but not much metal.

It“s is in my believe that no one can ever top the composition and sound of Master of Puppets not even the current Metallica lineup.

I'm sure you'll never see this, but Unleashed wasn't really a live album. It was basically a studio album that had a track of a live audience dubbed over/into it. Great album though.

Try Priest Live! THE best live album...or at least until Volbeat puts a live album out.

Blizzard of Ozz, Diary of a Madman, Heaven and Hell, Mob Rules, and Holy Diver (to name just a few) can beat the shit out of Master of Puppets.

Great album but please...Warpigs, Master of Reality, Mob Rules or H&H are way better Metal albums than anything Metallica put out, and I bet Metallica would agree too
