    This is the place to do reviews on Metal albums, posting Metal songs, stories about Metal, and anything that makes you want to tear someones face off and season it with hot sauce.

    Iron Maiden is the obvious answer to the poll question, but the lack of Sabbath as an option is very suspect.

    I thought about adding Sabbath, but I really consider them more heavy blues rock than Metal

    still love the band, but at one time Metallica was punk, cause no one used the term Thrash yet

    Cannibal Corpse, Priest and Death were all left off. I could have put like 20 bands up there. I tried to keep it minimal

    just a matter of opinion

    Sabbath invented heavy metal. Period.

    it could be argued Judas Priest did too

    Sabbath was the heaviest thing then, but it was still really bluesy and jazzy. As much as I love Sabbath, they didnt build the house of Metal, IMO

    but they did create all the building materials

    Priest was part of The New Wave of British Heavy Metal, post Sabbath. It is indisputable that Sabbath created metal. It has been established as an anthropological fact.

    You are literally the first person whom I've ever encountered in my 36 years on this planet that disputes this to any degree.

    Im not disputing it, Im looking at it thru a different lens

    it could be argued The Melvins created grunge, yet it was actually Black Flag

    its a matter of opinion is all

    Deep Purple can be argued to have "invented" heavy metal too.

    thats what I mean

    as well as Blue Cheer, Steppenwolf, AC/DC, etc

    yet the first band, again IMO, to put all the modern day elements of 'Metal' together was Priest

    AC/DC was "Metal" at the time, now theyre Hard Rock, again IMO

    and this is coming from a guy who will call his first born son 'Bon' provided I have brain damage and want to have kids someday

    Sabbath will go down as the ground breakers of metal. In 1970 they released "Black Sabbath" and "Paranoid" with songs such as Iron Man, Paranoid, NIB, Black Sabbath and Fairies Wear Boots. They were tuned down and heavy as fuck for that time period which, to my knowledge, nobody else was doing.

    Personally, my pick is Metallica as the greatest of all time. They led the way in introducing a new style of metal, have a broader musical palette and made Master of Puppets.

    What example do you have for Priest? Sabbath put out Children of the Grave in 1971 and that's pretty metal.

    no one advanced Metal more than Metallica, thats for sure

    and no one opened up Metal to more people than Metallica

    it was released the same day as the first Maiden album, but Priest just had time to hone their sound better

    Im not saying Sabbath had NO Metal elements, but theyre like Zeppelin to me

    at times theyre heavy, other times theyre not

    Priest and Maiden were the first two to be Metal all the time, which is the key aspect IMO

    I'm kind of a weirdo with my metal. I'm pretty open except for that I prefer metal that doesn't have cookie monster vocals.

    I gotcha with Priest but with everything there's a seed that a tree comes from. Here's another from Sabbath that, to me, set the tone for years to come.

    TURN THIS SHIT UP!!

    love the Death cover, but gotta love the original

    totally, like I said, Sabbath created everything needed for Metal, they just had a ton of other elements that stretched them to other styles of music

    I LOVE Sabbath, but I wouldnt call them strictly a Metal band

    tons of Metal elements, but the same goes for Alice in Chains and a ton of other bands
