Four Decades Of Metal - Today: 1985

four decades of metal 1985


Over the next 40 days I will take a quick look back at the past four decades of hard rock and metal, listing up my Top 10 albums of each year (….and yes, I have probably missed out on some albums here and there that should have been included). One year each day starting way back in 1980 and in forty days from now hopefully ending with 2019.


No words or justifications, just a plain list of my personal favorite albums from each year.


Feel free to leave your comments in the comment section below with your own personal favorites from the particular year. Enjoy!



1. ACCEPT - Metal Heart

2. SAVATAGE - Power Of The Night

3. RATT - Invasion Of Your Privacy

4. DOKKEN - Under Lock And Key

5. HELLOWEEN - Walls Of Jericho

6. FATES WARNING - The Spectre Within

7. W.A.S.P - The Last Command

8. WHITE LION - Fight To Survive

9. MÖTLEY CRÜE - Theater Of Pain

10. LOUDNESS - Thunder In The East
