Top Ten Drummers' Metal Albums

A Listmania! list by S Pawson (Dartford, Kent United Kingdom)
 
Cowboys From Hell
1.  Cowboys From Hell by Pantera
The list author says:
  "Crisp double bass, inventive patterns - Vinnie Paul burst onto the metal scene with Cowboys From Hell. Check out Domination and Primal Concrete Sledge for pure ingenuity."
4.63   Used & New from: 1.48
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (43 customer reviews)

Master Of Puppets
2.  Master Of Puppets by Metallica
The list author says:
  "This is Lars Ulrich's finest hour. Plenty of speed, power and unpredictability and the last time he played a decent ride cymbal (Disposable Heroes)."
5.92   Used & New from: 2.17
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (175 customer reviews)

Arise (Reissue)
3.  Arise (Reissue) by Sepultura
The list author says:
  "Igor Cavalera brought in a new sound on this album (check out the snare). The Master of Puppets influences are clear in the drumming and that can only be a good thing."
6.71   Used & New from: 3.13
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

Alive Or Just Breathing
4.  Alive Or Just Breathing by Killswitch Engage
The list author says:
  "Adam Dutkiewicz is full of great ideas and there's a fine blend of double bass, twiddly ride patterns and chinas thrown in for good measure. Sadly, he's moved over to guitar..."
5.85   Used & New from: 1.80
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (34 customer reviews)

Demanufacture
5.  Demanufacture by Fear Factory
The list author says:
  "What can I say? You'll never hear double bass like Raymond Herrera. There is no better..."
7.25   Used & New from: 0.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

Ride The Lightning
6.  Ride The Lightning by Metallica
The list author says:
  "This shows what an innovator Ulrich was - the first album to carry sixteenth note double bass at speed - it's delicious."
7.68   Used & New from: 1.70
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (94 customer reviews)

Rust In Peace
7.  Rust In Peace by Megadeth
The list author says:
  "Loads of odd meter, some of the tightest playing and a fantastic sounding kit. I love Nick Menza on this album."
Used & New from: 2.16
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (69 customer reviews)

Fields of Disbelief
8.  Fields of Disbelief by Pissing Razors
The list author says:
  "Eddy Garcia is one of the few drummers carrying the metal torch with any ability. Intricate double bass, invention and speed when it's needed. Very underrated."
Used & New from: 2.39
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Corridos De Muerte
9.  Corridos De Muerte by Asesino
The list author says:

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Reign in Blood
10.  Reign in Blood by Slayer
The list author says:
