    Without a shadow of a doubt : Warning II (of course from the band Warning)

    One of the most energetic albums of the entire decade (80's).

    I'm not quite familiar with french metal and to be honest I haven't heared many of these albums but I think that Anyway, Drakkard, Lust, Mistreated, Nightmare, Sortilege, Ponce Pilate, Nightreaper and Warning are among the greatest.

    I went through a phase of listening to French metal for a while and Sortilege 'Larmes De Heros' is the cream of the crop. Great list by the way.

    No expert on the French scene by any means so would struggle to pick a top 10, but I think High Power -s/t, Sortilege - s/t and H-Bomb - Attaque are all fantastic albums.

    Anything with ADX on it is instant classic. At least the first three albums.
    Then goes Sortilege, Killers and Trust, I guess.

    Warning is good, as well as Vulcain and the likes, but just plays in a different league, imo.

    Sortilege, Warning, ADX and Satan Jokers are - to me - the best of the French metal scene, but damned if I can let this thread go by without mentioning Oxenkiller's "Monster of Steel", which always will have a sentimental place in my heart....

    The top French metal band for me is Agressor. They're not traditional metal though, they're more like Morbid Angel, if they made an album like "Into the Pandemonium."

    Voodoo Child - Adrenaline (even though i didn't like the vocals that much) it was one of the very first hidden jewels i discovered when i found this our forum.
    Killers - Fils De La Haine
    Warning - Warning II
    Damocles - The comp

    And thats pretty much it, i'm not an avid scholar of French metal, so thats a big thanks for the list Stasco.
