Greatest Metal Bands

I Found It Relatively Easy To Choose The Best Metal Bands Of All Time ... Though , Most Bands Today Claim That They Are Metal by their Genre , But Only Some Bands Have Been Able To Prove That They Definitely Are Worthy Bands Of This Genre ...

So , Here Are Some Of The Greatest Metal Bands ( In No Particular Oder):


Black Sabbath :-

Without any doubts , they have been the best and still are the foremost inspiration for all bands of today . Ozzy Osbourne , the Well Accomplished Vocalist of this band is also one of my favorite vocalists and what I find the most amazing feature of this band is the vocal-guitar Duo ... The riffs are just perfect and also , the bass is just as Fabulous... A perfect, and most importantly, a Unique Band of their Time and Now too!



Iron Maiden :-
The Big Daddys of Metal as I like to refer them ... Exquisite vocals by Bruce Dickinson also make him One of the Greatest vocalists of all time ... Such wonderful compositions like "Dance Of Death ", "Hallowed Be Thy Name ", "Tears Of The Dragon " are so much versatile that you just find it hard to miss any part of the song ...They put a lot of contrasting variations in their Songs too , like - 'Dance Of Death' and 'Tears OF The Dragon' ... Overall , a very tight and definitely The Most Versatile Metal Band !




Metallica :-
The most wonderful part of this Band is that it has just 4 members and still you dont feel something's missing !! ... Kirk Hamett has pulled it off with some great riffs like 'Master Of Puppets' And 'Seek And Destroy' , and the Drummer Lars Ulrich has been very much energetic too( Listen to St. Anger , for example! ) ... James Hetfield too has shown some great variation in his vocals in songs like 'Master Of Puppets' and then with a soothing heavy voice in 'Nothing Else Matters' ...





Judas Priest :-

Judas Priest are an English heavy metal band Whose Members Are bass player Ian Hill, vocalist Rob Halford and guitarists Glenn Tipton and K. K. Downing , But their drummer had been changing throughout the years ... Well , their songs have excellent heavy vocals backed by really wonderful riffs like that of 'painkiller' or 'Victim Of Changes' ... I really admire the tone of the guitar in the band too ... They have also been rightly called "Metal Gods" ( from a songs of theirs by the same name ) !



Slayer :-
Really heavy vocals and sound Too ... I would say that they are My Favorite if you consider other bands of their genre like Lamb Of God and the likes ... They have some really Awesome Drum techniques, with the Double Bass Been played really well . Then, the guitar riffs are also Exceptional too ...




Pantera :-
Definitely Really Good Riffs And Solos ... Their compositions are also interesting, As in, they were really very Heavy in Songs like "25 Years" Or "Shedding Skin" and then so much melody in "Planet Caravan " ... Also, the drums jell really well with the guitar...





Megadeath :-
Megadeth is an American heavy metal band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1983, by Dave Mustaine following his departure from Metallica... The Band Is Really Very Original and have a distinctive guitar style, often involving complex, intricate musical passages, and Really Unique And Experimental Vocals Of Dave Mustaine



Dream Theater :-


They are a really sensible band with some actually very pure kind of sound ... and their line-up is also great ... With some exceptional drums, Exquisite Guitar, and really varied vocals ... The thing I like the most Is that the band is a Mix of a Very Melodious Synthesiser by Kevin Moore and the fast guitar playing of John Petrucci(also played In The G3)... The band was influenced by Rush and Iron Maiden ...




Motorhead :-

Well, Some Real Fast And Heavy Songs Define This Band .. They Are Also Famous For Giving various WWE Themes For The Wrestlers Too ...

Re: Dream Theater-- It's too bad that Kevin Moore left after their third album. Not only was he a solid keyboard player he was one of their best songwriters. I like Jordan Rudess but I really miss Moore's songwriting. At least I've got his Chroma Key and OSI CDs to listen to now. :-)
