If you could narrow down five of your favourite albums, which ones are they?
Mine are (in no particular order):
As I've stated before, W.A.S.P.'s debut album remains my personal favourite of their entire output. I find the songs fun, crazy, emotional and most of all: heavy. Put all these together and you get one hell of an album.
Best songs: I Wanna Be Somebody, L.O.V.E Machine, School Daze, Sleeping in the Fire, On Your Knees, Tormentor, The Torture Never Stops.
King Diamond-Abigail (1987)
The first King Diamond album I bought, and it still remains as my personal favourite of his.
Best songs: Arrival, A Mansion in Darkness, The Family Ghost, The 7th day of July 1777, Abigail, Black Horsemen.
Venom-Welcome to Hell (1981)
Venom's debut has enough satanic content, heaviness, speed and raw energy that will make any metalhead smile.
Best songs: Sons Of Satan, Welcome to Hell, Schizoid, Poison, Angel Dust, Live like an Angel Die like a Devil, In League with Satan.
Yngwie Malmsteen-Trilogy (1986)
His last good album delivers some impressive solos, interesting riffs/keyboards and great vocal harmony.
Best songs: You Don't Remember I'll Never Forget, Liar, Queen in Love, Crying, Fury, Magic Mirror, Dark Ages, Trilogy Suite Op. 5
Alice Cooper-Raise Your Fist and Yell (1987)
An unfairly underrated album with some great tunes. The only song I can't stand is "Not that kind of love", which reminds me of a bad Kiss song.
Best songs: Freedom, Lock Me Up, Step On You, Prince of Darkness, Time to Kill, Gail, Roses in White Lace.
