23 Classic Metal Albums Celebrating Their 30th Anniversary in 2018

Time to feel really old. This year, we looked back at albums celebrating their 10th anniversary and their 20th anniversary, but metal is so old now that we can look back on 30 year anniversaries too.

It's crazy to think some classic albums by Metallica, Slayer, Death, Danzig, Anthrax, Iron Maiden and Megadeth were released 30 years ago. Here are some notable metal releases from 1988:
