Having sold close to 100 million albums, Metallica are probably the biggest and most influential heavy metal band ever, and are now about to release their long-awaited ninth studio album.

Can you really disagree with that statement? Anyone who disagrees they're the biggest and most influential is just an idiot.

Metallica's influence on metal extends as far as my left nut extends from my right. Not very.

Well yeah you're right there, lol. But to call the BBC nubcakes for a fairly accurate statement is wrong

Get him into blues. Lyrical depth-not so much. But it is groovy and it is black people's music so if he doesn't enjoy then he is not a true black person.

Meh, not Metallica's fault if you've got tiny balls.
Not saying Metallica are the definition of metal or the best in the genre but they've influenced every metal band that's come after them.

So? It's not like there is a huge choice of arts review programs on TV! I wish there were a lot more

That isn't just any riff though.. it is the best open string riff ever IMHO (Disposable Heroes).

Love the way the drums phase into it and back it up.

Sorry darkstar2466, you are a good guy and all but Slayer did not outdo Metallica musically from the get-go. The first 4 Metallica albums are great in my opinion due to the variety they hold (heavy, fast, slower, soft, etc) and song writing quality.

Personally, metal bands benefit from not just being "right, lets play heavy all the time".

Partly what seperates the good from the great, even if you like extreme musics.

you like slipknot and slayer is just noise?!? maybe you are just into metal because all the grown up kids like it at school. one of my guitar pupils had a cannibal corpse tshirt and he didnt know they were a band.

I think Iron Maiden have probably been more influential, especially since they managed more than 4 good records and still make decent albums, unlike the Met boys.

I'm turning 19 in a week but yes I listen to metal because the old kids at school (who would be younger than me) are into it. Good logic!
I'm not just into metal either... stop making assumptions when you no nothing

I can say the same about the first four Slayer albums, spare the variety. I was not commenting on musical variety/complexity/songwriting. We're still on the topic of influence. I think Slayer had a higher influence in the metal community than Metallica does.

lmao slayer is still coasting off reign in blood, which was totally overrated. calling metallica has beens and then bringing slayer into the conversation totally just undermines the metallica statements. slayer are pretty much dead... at least metallica will still be rakin in cash for a few more years.

Biggest and most influential heavy metal band?


IRON F*CKING MAIDEN

and Sabbath is far more influential than 'Tallica.

O great, they're on the Culture Show. That'll be a laugh,
The presenters will ask pointless questions which Lars will pretend to understand, and answer using the longest words he knows(puntucated with "ummm" and "f*ck") to demonstrate this understanding, when the honest answer would be "we thought it sounded awesome, and made our balls rattle when we played it loud".

Fair enough actually. At the end of the day, though - does it really matter? Metallica may have influenced one great band (lets see... In Flames) where as Slayer may have influenced another unrelated great band. Metal is such a broad (but usually good ) term.
