Sometimes the 80s sometimes get a little too much love, especially from me. Anyone got any favorites? Proto metal, hard rock verging on metal included.

As much as I love Painkiller, this gives it a run for its money in terms of Priest being balls out metal. Saints in Hell is hands down the heaviest thing to come out of the 70s.

However much Stargazer rules, this is a better album than Rising.

Best Motorhead album. Hands down. Capricorn >*

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is my personal favorite Ozzy one, but for the criteria of "most metal" Vol. 4 is where it's at.

Some think it's "proto metal" or "hard rock", but this album has always been metal as fuck to me. And if you've never listened to it all the way through, something is seriously fucking wrong with you. Pictures of Home is one of the most metal songs of the 70s.

Mandatory listening. Although everything Virgin Killer - Animal Magnetism has great spots.

One of the first great live albums. Amazing band.

Warriors + Emerald = some of the most metal shit of the 70s.
