The Horror Playlist: Steven E. Wedel

list compiled by Steven E. Wedel

When I asked my longtime friend and fellow horror author Steve Wedel if he'd do us the honor of putting together a Horror Playlist for this month's issue, I had a pretty good idea it would include lots of 70s and 80s metal and that it would most definitely kick ass. Well, I wasn't disappointed on either respect. Following you will find a top 13 albums from Steve and to be sure it has been turned all the way up to 11!

1. KISS- "Rock and Roll Over" (1976)

2. KISS- "Destroyer" (1976)

3. Meat Loaf- "Bat Out of Hell" (1977)

4. AC/DC- "Back in Black" (1980)

5. AC/DC- "Highway to Hell" (1979)

6. Black Sabbath- "Heaven and Hell" (1980)

7. Judas Priest- "Screaming for Vengeance" (1982)

8. Judas Priest- "Defenders of the Faith" (1984)

9. Manowar- "Battle Hymns" (1982)

10. Alice Cooper- "Welcome to My Nightmare" (1975)

11. Iron Maiden- "Number of the Beast" (1982)

12. Jim Steinman- "Bad for Good" (1981)

13. Slash- "Slash" (2010)
