Rage Against The Machine. I didn't know they were metal, always thought they were alt rock. Anyways, I love them because of the amazing instrumentals, and Zack de La Rocha is a great singer, he's different than most other singers.

Is anyone still in charge of this thread? GhostOfMetal hasn't posted in this thread in over a month. I'm going to unsticky this thread if no one is able to pick it up by the end of the month. If GhostOfMetal or anyone else is still interested in keeping this thread alive, please leave a comment on my profile, as I will lock this thread.

It's been a while since I was an active moderator for this thread, but since 'GhostOfMetal' has completely dissapeared and the thread has died off a bit, I think it's time I take over again and get this train back on track! So, from now on, you guys can direct your questions and comments about the thread back to me again. MM-kay? =D

First things first... we hit the emergency stop to keep it from derailing!

Allright, since no more votes were given for the last group posted, I'm going to declare it closed.

_______________________________________________________

# Final Score count for :

And just to make some things clear once over...

# One vote per round per person, no double voting;

# Elaboration is required, which was VERY THIN and sometimes even non existing, so:

# Keep an open mind about likes and dislikes of other users, respect is key, however discussion is always welcome!


Allright you Monsters of Metal! Off we go! Put the pedal to the Metal!!!

ACDC isn't metal. It's rock. How about Three Days Grace or Disturbed?

ACDC isn't metal. It's rock.


That's probably why they have been eliminated in a previous round... LOL XD
But on a serious note, they actually roam the grey area between Metal and Rock according to critics, allthough they themselves prefer and go by the genre of Rock! So from AC/DC's point of view, you're completely right!

How about Three Days Grace or Disturbed


They could very well be included into next year's edition of the 'MBWC'! Just make sure you suggest them at the end of this year's competition, ok? I'll take a note already, just to make sure...

And I noticed you're a big fan of Disturbed, hence your thread about their breakup... =)

But back to the 'MBWC'... what band do you prefer? Iron Maiden or Slayer? Place your vote! =D

so do we vote now...or?

Anyways, if we do, then Iron Maiden.
First, because I don't like the music of Slayer xD
And two, the musical of Iron Maiden is just amazing, You can listen to it for hours getting lost in their beats and guitar solos (ish). It's kind of true that the voice of some of iron maiden's songs aren't very great, but the musical makes up for it. Truly one of my favorite bands.

Though Iron Maiden is one of those many well-known commercial bands with a huge fanbase, they do have their appeal. I like songs like Fear Of The Dark, Die With Your Boots On, or The Trooper. Not because of their singer, like loloynage pointed out. Their melodies are great and succeed in captivating you.
Slayer? Their singer doesn't sound any better than IM's, and the music doesn't make up for that. Clear case^^ IM gets the vote.
