You have to include Revelations its pretty much necessary. Seeing Drifter or Twilight zone would be good too.
Nocturnus would be fun
5: Looking Down The Cross
4: My Last Words
3: Poison Was The Cure
1: Good Mourning Black Friday
4th Clive is amazing
Charts like these are always fascinating to look at but I've yet to see one with a lot of accuracy.

Maiden easily, megadeth had 4 extremely good albums...maiden had about 10. If I were to compare my favorite albums by each band Killers beats Killing is my business by a long shot. That being said...

12 year olds are annoying by nature (for the most part) and if they are into Dragon Force now they will probably outgrow them just like you did.
I say if they are exposing people to metal then...
60s: Black Sabbath
70s: Judas Priest
80s: Iron Maiden
00s: Wolves in the Throne Room
