Sorry man, I just wanted to speed this thread up a bit.


I thought as much AvengedSevenfold11, but seeing as the forum activity is really slow right now, it means it's slow allover, including the 'MBWC' sad to say... so speeding things up won't work.

Wheres Disturbed?


The competition is already at the point of reaching the Final Battle, which is 'fought' right now chrtamran... they might be featured in the next edition of the 'MBWC' though! Feel free to cast a vote for either Pantera or Iron Maiden who are battling the final right now! =)

I don't see the need to post a score update right now, so I'll hang onto that a little while longer.

Suggestions, however, are always welcome! Which great Metal bands should be featured in the next 'MBWC' competition in your opinion? Comment them on my profile and I'll consider adding them to the new 'MBWC'! =)

Wow, I'm surprised this battle is taking so long. (Still hoping for Pantera! ) Anyway, I realized I gave a lot of links for the Pantera fans, but nothing for the Iron Maiden fans. So, whether or not you're a fan of the Power Metal band Iced Earth, I think you'll like this cover of The Trooper.

I don't really like Pantera. Their music is just very uninspiring for my taste.

Iron Maiden, on the other hand, have some songs I kinda like. Afraid to Shoot Strangers, The Trooper and Fear of the Dark are not bad songs.

I vote Iron Maiden.

This final battle of the 'MBWC' is dragging it's feet a lot lately... where have all those metalheads gone? It used to be a lot more active way back when... =/

@ chrtamran : You have the chance to elaborate a little more on that vote, so I can get it counted, because the reasoning you gave is just too thin... Goumas13's reasoning was pretty thin as well, but he already elaborated for both bands in the past during the other battles they featured, so he's 'forgiven' this time around.

@ Legion1350 : Thanx for the cover link for the Iced Earth version of the Trooper! It helped make this thread a little nicer there, but it's still pretty slow and quiet... =/

Time for another update on the score count and sadly... the score has moved up 1 point to another tie count, which is pretty dissapointing considering we're 3 weeks further along here...

Anyway, score shows us :

My vote goes to Iron Maiden

Although both bands are classic metal idols, I think Iron Maiden gets my vote.

Maiden has superior bass lines and drumming, their guitar riffs are bone-rattling and they are a better band all around.

Both bands has their fare share of soft songs, but Maiden takes the lead with Dream of Mirrors over any softer song by Pantera. Dream of Mirrors, not only is an insanely long song, but the lyrics are deep and meaningful.

As for hardcore songs, Iron Maiden still beats our Pantera. My personal favorite is Aces High. I feel like Aces High is more intense and thought provoking than any song by Pantera. The way the lyrics are sang, it makes you feel as if you are actually in the plane being shot at and maneuvering throughout the dogfight.

So, my vote goes for Iron Maiden!

And another point has broken the tie in favour of Iron Maiden, YAY! Not really... (o.O)

Come on guys?! One vote over the course of 10 days since I last posted?! That's just worse than sad, that's pathetic! Where are all those Metalheads gone to?! =/

Well, here's another update, but I'll be starting to work on the next competition soon, because it needs some fresh blood and a kick-in-the-rear-revival I guess! Hhrrmmmppff...

Hum... Hard to choose. Iron Maiden is more an hard rock band and Pantera is groove metal, but put a name on each kinf of music is stupid XP

Iron Maiden is one of the famous band of the kind. Even people who don't enjoy our music know them. So maybe they should win because they are the "best" representativ band (and a great band of course).


Vinnie Paul (Pantera's drummer) is the guy who really starts to use double pedal in songs... Phil Anselmo is my fav singer, he's awesome, and if you don't agree, don't give a crap and go listen to Cemetery Gates !
And Dimebag "Diamond" Darrell... Requiescat in pace. This guy WAS the Metal. I wish he was still alive... I started to learn to play guitar because of him. He litterally changed my life. I hope he's getting fun in hell, drinking some beers for the MetalGod sake ! X)

Well, my vote goes for PANTERA \\o/
