More than 16,000 people took part in the poll, arranged to celebrate Metal Hammer’s 25th anniversary.

And Slipknot’s eponymous debut got almost a third of the vote in an emphatic result. The double-platinum 1999 release beat off competition from some huge albums, with Guns N’ Roses’ Appetite For Destruction surprisingly only third.

Released in 1987, a year after Metal Hammer was born, Appetite For Destruction has sold more than 28 million copies – and been certified platinum a massive 18 times.

Korn’s classic debut took second place, with Rammstein’s Herzeleid in fourth spot. Pantera’s 1990 album Cowboys From Hell completes the top five.

“Metal Hammer has a long history of championing the new while celebrating the metal gods who created our wonderful culture,” says editor Alexander Milas. “As we commence our next quarter-century of covering both kinds of music: heavy, and metal, we congratulate Slipknot on their astounding victory.

“Like all the nominees whose tremendous contributions to the world of metal have made the last 25 years so fantastic, Slipknot’s success is proof our music has never been more exciting or vibrant. Horns up!”
