I'll jump on the poll parade.

We probably all have some of these. Which is your fav?

I don't have any of those. 

My favorite tribute album is "Covered In Black - An Industrial Tribute To AC/DC" featuring bands like Gentorturers, Spahn Ranch, Godflesh and Sister Machine Gun.

I've never heard any of them.

The only tribute album that I really dig was the Brown Sabbath one that Brownout did.

Earache's Masters of Misery Sabbath Tribute is really good as well.

I really dig this track from it.


And Sleep's cover of Snowblind was also included there.


I'm not a huge fan of tribute albums either, and I'm not familiar with any listed in the poll. The Holy Dio tribute album is pretty alright from what I remember from it, though.

Angel Dust's rendition of Temple of the King is really cool.

There's so may tribute albums, you can't even start listing them all. I have piles of them. And yet I've not heard most of these that are polled here.

Top three of the ones I do have and love are the two Legends of Metal - Tribute to Priest discs that are in the poll, The Music Remains the Same - Tribute to Led Zeppelin, and the Holy Dio one also already mentioned in the thread.

Those are the top three, and after that there's another pile of really good ones.

I didn't vote on the poll, because that'd imply I've heard them all. I can only guess on the quality of some.

From this list I'll go with Legends Of Metal: Tribute To Judas Priest. But it isn't my favorite tribute album. I like Holy Dio and A Call To Irons (Iron Maiden tribute) much better.

Never heard any of those, but then, I'm not really into tribute albums. I think I've only ever owned 2 of them, but no more.

Have not heard any of your selections, and I basically steer clear of tribute albums anyway.

I own about half of these (and the Dio tribute posted by Wurthless is waiting to be purchased at a local store) as I am a sucker for covers. I chose the Priest tributes b/c there are a ton of artists I like on those and they are done right. I like the tributes/ covers that Deadline put out cuz they got '80's artists to cover ' 80's bands.

Got to find the Saxon and Savatage ones listed. Smile

I've have (or had) a few of these. I'll throw Saxon and Uncle Sax a bone and vote for A Metal Crusade: Tribute to Saxon.

If memory serves, I think I picked up that disc before I owned any real Saxon albums. I was only vaguely familiar with their output at the time.

Thanks for the bone, MG. Yeah - I love the Saxon one, if, for at the very least, the reunited Abattoir track!

From the albums on this list, I'll go with Legends of Metal: A Tribute to Judas Priest.

Back when that came out I was still young and single, and therefore I still had the disposable income to piss away on import CDs so I held out till I could buy the European version of that one, which was spread out over two separate discs (the U.S. version boiled down the highlights to a single CD).

Naturally I bought the album mainly for the tracks by the "big names" like Overkill, Mercyful Fate, Helloween, etc., but the Euro version introduced me to quite a few bands that I hadn't yet heard (or heard of) like Radakka, Heaven's Gate, Rage, and Blind Guardian. I ended up tracking down albums by all of those bands after hearing them take on the Priest catalog.

Century Media certainly knew how to put together a killer tribute album. As others have already mentioned here, the Holy Dio: A Tribute to the Voice of Metal double-disc comp was another excellent collection which, just like the Priest tribute, intro'd me to a handful of bands I'd never heard before.

Recently I've discovered that I have a weakness for those ultra-cheap, assembly-line tributes that Deadline/Cleopatra farted out during the early '00s, performed by randomly thrown-together casts of out-of-work hair metal dudes. I picked up a whole bunch of those over the past year or so, like Thunderbolt: A Tribute to AC/DC; Leppardmania: A Tribute to Def Leppard; and my personal fave, Humanary Stew: A Tribute to Alice Cooper.
