Yeah, this is it! The Metal Bands World Cup! We are in the year of the Soccer World Cup, so I thought of doing this. Itâs based in the cup organization rules, but kind of different:

Group stage: 4 metal bands are selected, each person have the power to give a point (vote) for one band, when a band reaches 5 points, the band election is over, and the top 2 bands of the group stay for the knockout stage. There will be playoffs if needed.

Knockout stage: Like in the famous battle of the bands thread, you are going to vote for one band, the band that reaches 5 points first is going to stay for itâs next game, or win the competition, if it the final.

Rules: 1-Give a good reason for why you chose that band
2-You can only vote once in a game
3-Donât complain if your band if loosing or lose
4-Community Rules and Guidelines apply too

Mods: People who will help me, not the community official mods, normal users who I invite to help.

I hope AG users like it!

Allright... allright... like I said, I needed some time to put up the next group, since I was at work last time I checked in...

Now I'm at home with a day off, so that means... the next group is open for voting! YAY! =D

A group consisting of bands with a 'bigger byte' if you know what I mean...

Group G:
- Obituary
- Hammerfall
- Testament
- Slipknot

Let the voting begin!!! =D

Let's see...

Obituary is awesome, but not a personal favorite.
Hammerfall are too poppy and cheesy for my tastes.
Slipknot isn't metal at all, and suck massive balls either way.

I vote Testament. Classic thrash band, I can't believe their show here with Megadeth sold out...I'm still kicking myself for missing that >_<

@ grimml: since you have your comments closed, I have to tell you through posting in the thread...

You still have to say to us 'why' you vote for slipknot!

It's mandatory or your vote doesn't count...

Hammerfall, definitely. First of all, the name gets me, I dunno, I just love it. Second of all, Anders is just a beast on the drums. And since I play drums as well, he's sort of one of my role models, or whatever.

That's better grimml! Thanx for the reasoning, now your vote is really 'legit'!

And another vote in! Looks like a lot of different groups are being voted on this time! I wonder if we get a 5-vote-tie all over the board this time?! =)

Rankings a currently on:

- Testament - 2
- Hammerfall - 1
- Slipknot - 1
- Obituary - 0

Anyone else?
