It’s time for another list: Dustin Moroz, guitar player and vocalist of Canadian heavy metal band Arcane Tyrant, shows us his five favourite albums of all time. If you don’t know his band yet, check them out right now!
- Manowar – Battle Hymns
To me, this is the Holy Grail of Metal albums. Not only is Manowar one of my all time favourite bands, but the song »Battle Hymn« is one of the most empowering songs I’ve ever heard.
- Blind Guardian – Battalions of Fear
Raw, blisteringly fast, and Blind Guardian at their best. Marcus’ and André’s guitar playing has always been, and continues to be a huge influence in Arcane Tyrant.
- Metallica – Kill’em All
This was one of the first Metal albums I had ever heard, and each time I play it, it’s like discovering Metal for the first time all over again. I grew up learning to play guitar along with Metallica albums, so this one will always be special.
- Iced Earth – Night of the Stormrider
Crushing, dark, and such an epic tale. In my opinion, one of the best concept albums ever written.
- Dio – Holy Diver
This album has a sort of magic about it that only Ronnie James Dio could conjure. I could listen to this on repeat until the ends of time, and it would never get old.
- Visigoth – The Revenant King
- Cirith Ungol – One Foot In Hell
- Grave Digger – Excalibur
