Let me make one thing clear. I only recommend metal albums that I bought, albums that moved something inside of me, influenced my playing, and, most impotently, it’s been a great pleasure listening to them.

Albums that I’m 100% sure will make the same for you!

As you already know, I like to recommend albums that are kind of “millstones” of specific genres in music evolution.

This time I chose four completely different metal albums that set the standard of heavy metal guitar playing as we know it today.

The first two are “kicking” metal albums with high-energy riffs and solos, so you will enjoy listening and transcribing.

The last two will open your mind to different styles of metal guitar playing.
