The 100 Best and Absolute Greatest Heavy Metal Albums in the World Ever

About 20 years ago, at high school, under request, a friend of mine made me a "best of heavy metal" tape. I remember the sense of epic I felt listening for the first time to Iron Maiden's The Trooper. God, that was music! Actually, my metal epiphany lasted a couple of weeks. In that same tape, that friend of mine put some Pearl Jam and Nirvana songs. And I picked the grunge road.

This amazing anecdote is to say heavy metal is another of the infinite music genres I'm rather ignorant about. Ignorant, but voraciously curious. Even if I'm not in high school, anymore. So welcome to the lovely and humbly named "The 100 Best and Absolute Greatest Heavy Metal Albums in the World Ever" Spotify playlist, based from the book of the same name.

With the like of Alice Cooper, Anthrax, Black Sabbath, Danzig, Deftones, Dream Theater, Guns n'Roses, Iron Maiden (The Trooper included, yes!), Judas Priest, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Mastodon, Metallica, Motley Crue, Neurosis, Ozzy Osbourne, Pantera, Rage Against the Machine, Sepultura, Slayer, Slipknot, System of a Down, Van Halen, White Zombie and many more.

Full list is below the playlists. Plural: one playlist with complete albums and the second one with three tracks each album.

Loudly enjoy.
