May I inquire if there has already or will be battles between folk metal groups? I could propose a group or two...

Hey, a Folk Metal group would be great! And I could suggest some groups myself: Eluveitie, Wintersun, and Equilibrium. Three of my favorites.

And yes, I agree that certain non-metal bands should be disqualified.

Those are three great groups indeed! Further suggestings would be: Ensiferum, Alestorm, Turisas, Amon Amarth, and Finntroll. There's enough to do several battles :D

I'll be the 'anti-christ' in this battle with casting my vote for Led Zeppelin! =P

Led Zeppelin is one of the founders of the whole genre of Metal,something a lot of people tend to forget! And even though the whole genre has evolved quite a bit over the decades, I still prefer their style over Pantera's, simply because Led Zeppelin has proven to evolve within their own signature style during their main period and Pantera on the other hand has stopped to improove theirs somewhere along the line... whenever I hear a song by Pantera, it's always really great to hear, but when you listen to more than a couple of songs, their music becomes boring prrr-et-ty quickly! =/

So, in MHO... Led Zeppelin is the better choice in this particular battle! =)

Ooh, that'd be nice! Also, have we ever had a Doom/Stoner Metal group?

1. Isn't it "Devil's advocate"?
2. Darn you! >:[

I'll vote for Led Zeppelin as well.  Not that I'm a huge fan of Led Zeppelin, but rather because Pantera has done nothing that I like that I'm aware of.  I've heard my share of their songs, but nothing has grabbed me.  On the other hand, I do enjoy Stairway To Heaven and Black Dog quite a bit, so therefor.. my vote.

Led Zeppelin - 3
Pantera - 5

Seems like a lot of regular music lovers have gone out for a short vacation... either that or they were punished for playing their metal music too loud?! LOL XD

I have no idea why this is taking too long... It's starting to get annoying. We would almost be into the next two battles by now. =/

And thanks for the laugh, MrDayCee. :P

@ Legion1350 : Great huh?! Always a nice reminder of my youth... I can TOTALLY realte to the situation, minus the spanking though... add a 'hurricane-volumed-speech' instead and you have the picture of my youth! LOL =P

As for the running period of this battle... it's only been the 16th of June since this was posted, so that's only a short 2 weeks... =/
I really have to add that you guys have been pampered with the running times of the previous battles there! Those were over SO quickly, that this one may seem longer, but actually is taking it's normal running time! ;)

Anyway... it's up to GhostOfMetal to decide when-and-if he wants to close this one... he's running the show now and I'm merely a 'stand-by-mod' here... ;)
