1980's Best Metal Music

At the beginning of 1980, 1970's hard rock was evolving into something new. Many of the bands in this playlist fell by the wayside as transitional forms in that evolution, but you can really get a sense of what was on the horizon.

Albums from Judas Priest (British Steel), Ozzy (Blizzard of Oz), and Iron Maiden heralded a new and righteous uberrock.
