Critics at Rolling Stone have unveiled what they believe are the 100 greatest metal records ever.

Fittingly, heavy metal godfathers Black Sabbath top the extensive list with their 1970 masterpiece ‘Paranoid’, while the Birmingham band’s self-titled debut is close behind in fifth spot.

Heaping praise on Sabbath’s second record, which spawned colossal anthems ‘War Pigs’, ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Paranoid’, the US magazine justified its lofty no.1 spot by writing:

“Paranoid was the sound of Black Sabbath's reality, a plea for understanding that would resonate with millions of people feeling the same disaffection, many of whom would form groups like Metallica, Pantera and Slipknot – groups that would change the face of metal, as well as the world.”

In second place on the countdown is Metallica’s thrash metal opus ‘Master of Puppets’, with Judas Priest’s tour-de-force ‘British Steel’ in third place and Iron Maiden’s influential third LP ‘Number of the Beast’ in fourth.

Completing the Top 10 are Slayer’s ‘Reign In Blood’, Motörhead’s ‘No Remorse’, Megadeth’s ‘Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?’, Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Blizzard of Oz’ and Pantera’s ‘Vulgar Display of Power’.

Body Count cover Slayer’s Raining Blood

And in other news ..Bodycount recall impromptu cover of slayer's Raining Blood 


Body Count have released another video in their series showing behind-the-scenes footage from their Bloodlust sessions.

The follow-up to 2014’s Manslaughter was released at the end of March and features contributions from Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy’s Max Cavalera and Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe.

The record also includes a cover of Slayer classic Raining Blood – and in the latest video, bassist Vincent Price speaks about how he approached the track in the studio.

He says: “I got this phone call from Ice T at the same time he told me about trying to find people to be on this record.

“He goes, ‘Vince, I want to cover Raining Blood.’ I’m thinking, ‘Wait a minute, Raining Blood starts with the end of Postmortem.’

“I was like, ‘You know what? Let’s put a twist on it – start our Raining Blood and then end with Postmortem, which I do vocals on.”

The rest of the video shows the band talking together in the studio, footage of recording sessions and audio clips from the album.

Watch it below.

Ice-T previously said of the decision to release a new Body Count album: “Music happens in climates. Groups like Rage Against The Machine and Korn were born when the world was in turmoil, then music went into this delusional period where hip-hop became about nothing more than poppin’ bottles.

“Now we have impending doom again, racism is at an all-time high and it’s our season again. This is the optimal time for a Body Count record.”
