I voted for Nightwish, but had Within Temptation been on the ballot I would have voted for them.

Judas Priest here. It's a very hard choice. Out of those bands I like, Metallica (old), Slayer (pre late 90's), Megadeth (what little I've listened to), Iron Maiden (old), and Black Sabbath (Ozzy+ Dio only). As you can see, I tend to prefer older metal. There are some bands on that list I would struggle to call metal or at least "true" metal by my definition. I'm talking about bands like Rammstein and Slipknot here. To be fair though, everyone has their own opinion on what's metal and what's not and no single opinion is correct over any others.

Where are the Norwegian Black Metal bands? :(

Oh, come on, there should be an "other" option at least. There are more than 16 metal bands.

I like... hmm... Sunn O))).

Agreed,it's impossible to do a poll of any genre,when it's only giving a few options.
Better to just do voting through posts,and not through poll.

You should have also added "I don't like heavy metal bands" to your poll...many Autistic and AS individuals don't like LOUD music.

:?: Metal can be listened to quietly like any other genre.
I like several of the bands on the list, but my favorite is Meshuggah, and I've been listening to a whole heck of a lot of Killswitch Engage lately too. OO and someone mentioned Strapping Young Lad. They own all.

I voted for Slayer. Favorite songs: Hell Awaits, At Dawn They Sleep, Praise of Death, Angel of Death, Jesus Saves, Criminally Insane, Epidemic, Postmortem, RainingBlood, Blood Red, Spirit in Black, Expendable Youth, Dead Skin Mask, Skeletons of Society, Seasons in the Abyss. I have mny other favorites, but those are the ones I particularly like from Hell Awaits, Reign in Blood, and Seasons in the Abyss.

I felt like this list was a little lacking though.
Where's the Pantera?
Where's the Death?
Where's the Sepultura? Sepultura+Max Cavalera= my personal all time favorite metal band \m/ :twisted: \m/

And even though I'm not big on pigeonholing music, NIN is not metal, they're industrial, there's definatly a difference. Alternative rock, maybe, hard rock, definatly, metal, nah. You'd be better off adding Tool to the list.

Out of that list it has to be Black sabbath (Ozzy period of course)
I also love older material by Iron Maiden, Metallica, Slayer and have always adored Judas Priest

Despite being my favourite band, I never really viewed Rush as heavy metal. The less said about the truly horrible Dream Theatre the better.....

If I had to narrow it down to one? Dimmu Borgir. But it's hard to say. There are a lot of great metal bands, so many different styles of metal. XD

How do I add voting options? Or can I not do that once I've posted it? Cause I need to add Dream Theater, Rush, Death, Strapping Young Lad, and Scorpions, and Pantera.
