Decibel (US): Metal Hall of Fame

Postby irreduciblekoan » Fri Mar 27, 2015 3:22 am

A great while ago before the forum remodel, I asked Henrik if this list (which is Decibel's closest thing to a greatest all-time list) was eligible, and he said yes. Since then, we both forgot about it and the topic became lost, and it wasn't included on the last update.

As a metal fan, I think it's a great resource. Basically, Decibel (my favorite metal publication) adds one classic album every month into their Hall of Fame. Each monthly issue has an article dedicated to the album and everything, including interviews with the band members. It's a great feature. Hopefully, once Henrik includes the Hall of Fame, some of the great metal albums that aren't on the site yet will become bubblers, while others which are already bubblers can MAYBE enter the top 3000. As I said, Decibel adds an album every month, so each AM update (if done yearly) would need to include about 12 more into this list.

The list is NOT ranked. The numbers are chronological from earliest entry (1) to latest. http://decibelmagazine.com/hall-of-fame/2015/3/20/hall-of-fame-list-new
