Looking for a good compilation of metal tracks? Here’s five albums.
If you enjoy both heavy metal and Extreme Championship Wrestling, this album is for you. It features the theme music for various late 90s wrestlers like The Sandman, Lance Storm, and Rob Van Dam. All the songs are performed by professional musicians, and many are cover versions.
This compilation is four-discs of all the best in metal. From early heavy metal, through NWOBHM and hair metal, to alternative metal, this compilation doesn’t miss a thing.
The series of compilation albums this one comes from was released through Metal Blade Records. They became well known for bringing bands like Metallica and Slayer out of the underground. Volume three features Slayer, Znowhite, and Warlord, among others.
For lovers of glam metal and power ballads, here’s Monster Ballads. It’s a 16 song album featuring some pretty big power ballads by mostly glam metal bands. If you want more power ballads, there’s other albums in the series.
Released in conjunction with the MTV program Headbanger’s Ball, this two-disc compilation is the first in a series. The first disc has mostly singles by well-known bands, while the second features less well-known artists.
