Blind Guardian and Metallica were the two best live bands I've seen.

Sure, there's been loads of bands that had good energy, got the crowd going, played well and sounded great - but they don't really compare to BG and 'tallica.

Sorry awful Anglish.

IRON F*CKING MAIDEN!! probably the best live show i've seen, and i've seen around 60 bands live. some other great ones are machine head, god forbid (if you consider that metal), five finger death punch, disturbed, suffocation, megadeth, heaven and hell, korn (yes, it's nu metal, but they were freakin awesome), and lamb of god. i know i'm probably forgetting a bunch but those were some of the best i've seen.

I'm not an elitist.

But most of your list wasn't metal - and you mentioned Five Finger Death Punch in a positive light.

Opeth are like the ****ing record live, except louder and a billion times more epic. Behemoth played half their songs at double speed when I saw them, and Gojira, well... the fucking speakers fell through the floor, they were so heavy.

OPETH, Dream Theater.

Exactly.


Mikael Akerfeldt sounds limke he's 500 times the size of a normal man through the speakers. His transition from clean vocals to growl is flawless, and when he growls, he GROWLS.

Dream Theater can't possibly put on a bad show.
life is beautifuuuuooooaaaaaal

From my personal experience,

Symphony X
Heaven & Hell
Judas Priest

In that order.
Lost interest.
#22
I've only seen 3 metal bands live. Lacuna Coil, DragonForce, and Mastodon. Lacuna Coil was easily the best.
#23
Is it just me, or would Mastodon seem much more epic if they all had long hair?

#24
Black Sabbath and Testament were both absolutly mindblowing, but Judas Priest is the greatest metal band I have ever seen live. Anyone who has seen them knows what I am talking about.
