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.

First votes are in and Iron Maiden takes a small lead over Slayer! But like we've seen in previous battles fought in this competition, it ain't over, 'till it's over! Anything can happen here, especially with a 1 point difference... duh! =D

First vote count is minimal, but nevertheless :
______________________________________________

# 1/2 Final A :

2 - Iron Maiden
1 - Slayer

Let's get some more votes in there people! This competition deserves a LOT more attention! I've seen enough users roam the forae talking about how they like/love metal! So tell your friends about the 'MBWC' and persuade them to participate in it! =)

Iron Maiden because... well I don't know how to explain if I like music better, it just sounds better to me? Never was a fan of Slayer. Anyways, Iron Maiden are one of my favorite metal bands, they're classic. Also, I don't know if you can still add bands, but has Alice In Chains been in here at all?

For this year's competition, you can't, but there's always an option to present band suggestions at the end of each competition! I'd have to check whether Alice In Chains has been featured in this year's 'MBWC', but I haven't sifted through all the pages yet... I'll make sure to write them down for the 'MBWC - 2012 edition', ok? ;)

And thanx for your vote Yodadude53! It's pretty thin for a reasoning, but I think I know what you meant, so I'll count it! ;)

Update on the score count shows :
______________________________________________

# 1/2 Final A :

3 - Iron Maiden
1 - Slayer

Iron Maiden is slowly building on it's lead over Slayer, but it's long from over! Keep those votes coming people! =D

(Ooh, this is back up? :D )

In my opinion, this is one of the easiest battles I've seen. Slayer is one of the most influential bands in the history of Heavy Metal. They sound absolutely amazing, and the lyrics are well-written. And, because I can, I bring you this:

Hello, gentlemen. Look at your Iron Maiden CD. Now to my Slayer CD. Now back to your Iron Maiden CD. Now back to my Slayer CD. Sadly, it isn’t Slayer, but if you stopped listening to Iron Maiden and switched to real metal, it could sound like this. Look down, back up, now where are you? You’re on a yacht with the music your CDs could sound like. What’s in your hand? Look back at me. I have it now; it’s an oyster with two tickets to a Judas Priest concert. Look again, the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when you listen to real metal and not Iron Maiden. I’m on a horse.
