Ok decided to make a thread on this, similar to others from a while ago.


Post your top 5 metal bands

1. Metallica
2. Black Sabbath
3. Iron Maiden
4. Judas Priest
5. Trivium

Metallica would recieve 5 points, Black Sabbath 4, Iron Maiden 2 and so on.

Please do not post the same band more than once:
1. Metallica
2. Metallica
3. Metallica
4. Disturbed
5. Testament

Metallica will recieve 5 points, not 12, Disturbed will recieve 2 and Testament 1.

The band must be fairly well known. If I havn't heard of them and can't find them on google, I will not count the vote.

I know there is some debate as to whether certain bands are 'metal', so for the purpose of this thread, the term 'metal' encompasses ALL subgenres (deathcore, metalcore, nu-metal, etc).

Thats about it I guess. I will tally up the points to a certain post each day and post them here ASAP.

Here we go pit:

1. Metallica
2. Machine Head
3. Arch Enemy
4. Children of Bodom
5. Devildriver

2nd: Opeth 21
3rd: Children of Bodom 15
4th: Machine Head 13
5th: Dream Theatre 11
