Deep Purple, In Rock***** : Here's where Deep Purple move in the direction of heavy metal. In fact, I would call this album a strong heavy metal album and probably only the third true heavy metal album up to this point. This is also the Mark II version of DP, and I have to say that the band really found its sound here. I'm loving it. (3/9/2014)
Iron Maiden - Piece Of Mind, the first ever Maiden album I ever listened to. I can safely say these guys have taken more metalhead music virginity than any other band in the world, as for their cover art, nothing says Heavy Metal more than Eddie the 'ead.
