My Big, Fat, Greek Metal Album


The folks over at Metal Hammer asked their Greek readers to pound out the top 100 metal albums of all time. Forgive me, but the Greek edition of Metal Hammer magazine, is all Greek to me.


This is how the mag laid down the survey.

Metal Hammer: "The resulting list includes full-length recordings from 54 different bands from seven different countries, with IRON MAIDEN appearing on less than seven times on the list".
