Back then I certainly didn't own all the classic lp's released in 1984 that I have now but I had these and listened to them constantly
Metallica "Ride the Lightning"
Rush "Grace Under Pressure"
Venom "At War with Satan"
Warfare "Pure Filth and Fury"
Yngwie Malmsteen "Rising Force"
Queensryche "Warning"
Deep Purple "Perfect Strangers:
Parasite "MLP"
Dio "Last in Line"
Iron Maiden "Powerslave"
Judas Priest "Defenders of the Faith"
Manowar "Sign of the Hammer"
Mercyful Fate "Don't Break the Oath"
Celtic Frost "Morbid Tales"
Scorpions " Love at First Sting"
W.A.S.P "S.T"
I remember reading about Cirith Ungol and Trouble in mags and wanting their lp's so bad, took a few years later to get them.

I certainly have to add Slayer "Haunting the Chapel". It was the first time I heard them and was floored by the guitar sound and how cold the record sounded, truly unbelievable. Bought it off a friend who only listened to punk lp's, so glad he hated it.

Best album? I'm not sure. But probably the heaviest or most raw.

By a long shot, 1984 was the best year metal ever had. Sign Of The Hammer gets my vote!
