  6. Queensryche The Warning
  7. Celtic Frost Morbid Tales
  8. Slayer (EP) Haunting The Chapel
  9. Dio The Last In Line
  10. Manowar Hail To England

Manowar's finest hour, as both albums were high Top Ten entries and Hail To England narrowly missed being best of the year. Venom's At War With Satan is not their best, and on retrospect is a rather odd pick. America records a majority of the Top Tens for the first time ever.

No real surprises here, except perhaps the inclusion of an EP (Slayer). Otherwise, this is a fine representation of the best of mid-eighties metal.
