who do you think are some of the best metal groups around, even if they died ages ago i still want to hear your opinion, whether they came out yesterday or started up in the 80's

personally, i think one of the best in history, and that are still goin are probably slayer

the band from history that have finished and are great, are Pantera, RIP Dimebag-Greatest guitar player ever to live

the new band that is good is probably arch enemy, they have to be one of my favourite bands, but this is just my opinion, whats yours?
greatest still going = Judas Priest

greatest from past = Death (R.I.P. Schuldiner)

greatest new band = Opeth

ok heres the very sad deal i was wondering if there was any girls who love guitar and music
on here who live in california who are willing to go out with me
Eluveitie is the best of the present metal bands imo and Iron Maiden is one of the better older bands.
Metallica, even now

Vikings? What Vikings? We are but poor, simple farmers. The village was burning when we got here, and the people must have slain themselves.
