hard to decide.

Metal ---> King Diamond/Mercyful Fate.
Awesome live shows and albums are always well produced. The King IS King.

Progressive Metal ----> Tie: Fates Warning & Redemption
Prog Rock ----> Kansas
Thrash ----> Anthrax
Loudest ---> Spinal Tap
Freaking cool and under appreciated ---> Mudvayne. Lacuna Coil. Five Finger Death Punch. Straight Line Stitch. Type O Negative. Pist On. Armored Saint.

Whiners ---> Metallica.
Subtle is too confusing. Subtle only has it's place for aroma, flavor, and insult. Anyplace else, you lose. -GilaMinumBeer

Ginger, how long should I boil these crab legs for? I want them to fall off the bone just like Texas pork ribs. - Ace Club

Has anyone seen the "top 40 metal songs ever" on VH1? *puke*
Guns N Roses was like in the top 2. LAME!!!!!!!!!!


For metal lovers out there (obviously there's 5 pages full of us) - check out a local favorite of mine. (Monty - you're local - you may know them).

Look up "Beyond The Scar" on myspace (lame - but that's how they have a free website)

4th for Maiden.

I thought these guys quit when I stopped listening to them in high school (late 80s). They're getting a 4th or 5th wind thanks to being involved with the 'guitar her' video games. Now they have TRIPLE guitar harmonies! Seriously, I went straight from these guys to bluegrass and new acoustic jazz - there's a 'quality' thread going on there.

I prefer punk to most metal, but I can't believe I haven't seen more people mention Anthrax...

I saw this thread, and my first thought was "Motorhead". And shame on my spellchecker for not having it in its vocabulary.

I know nothing about singing, but my wife is a singer and musician. She believes Hetfield is an excellent singer. Take that for what it's worth. She's into Chris Cornell and guys like that, so I think she knows her stuff after 15 years of voice lessons.

And, tell me, whoever decided metal, good singers and harmonies were mutually exclusive.

Slayer, color me stupid but I just don't get it.

Thanks for bringing up Anthrax. Great stuff.

When I think metal I want to hear machine gun drumming- killer rifs and hardcore melody-

+1 on Pantera! I hadn't listened to them in awhile...

talk about all great albums (except for their last one!)

What ever happened to Phil? He was in another group for awhile, but then I haven't much from him.

And poor dimebag....
