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!

Well... I guess it's time for me to enter my vote in this group to make it even MORE exciting!

I vote for Ronny James DIO, simply because he's the crowned 'Godfather of Metal' aaaannddd... he is the inventor of the sign related to this awesome music genre!

'The Devil's Horns' \\,,/_ _\\,,/

Not to mention his vast amount of fantastic songs produced over the years and the bands he contributed in with his signature voice!

This makes the current standings a tie again!

Group H:
- Motley Crue - 4
- Nightwish - 3
- Ronny James DIO - 3
- Iced Earth - 0

Anyone care to challenge the leader of the group?

Motley Crue is stupid, I have no idea who Ronny James DIO is, Iced Earth are good and so are Nightwish. I'll vote Nightwish, even though they're doing worse now that Tarja abandoned them.

Just a couple of questions...
Who are Iced Earth?
Nobody votes them because nobody knows them?

To belive the two crappy bands are still in it. AG still has bad taste. Good to see that and thats why I'm happy to see them here instead of doing something stupid with thier lives, which they'll do anyways.

@Centie: I know, but to pay respect to the 'Godfather Of Metal' I decided to write his name in full... =D

And I will count your vote, don't worry, I just need to know the reasoning along with it! Thread rules...

Oh hell yeah! Nightwish made it in the group. Finally a bad that I'm really into makes it on this thread. I have every one of their CD's. They're coming out with a new one, but not until probably 2011 I think. Love the medieval feel to some of their stuff. Love the opera singing of Tarja. They even did a song with a Lakota indian doing some singing/chanting which was super cool.

Nightwish easily gets my vote!

WOW! This was unexpected?!?! At the last moment, Nightwish made a touchdown and kicked Motley Crue of the leading position!!

This meaning that the voting for this group is now closed!
Therefor the reasoning needed from Centie is not an issue anymore, since it has no influence in the voting and final ranking of this group...

The final ranking for this last group shows us:

Group H:
- Nightwish - 5 >>> GROUP WINNER!!! <<<
- Motley Crue - 4 >>> RUNNER UP!!! <<<

- Ronny James DIO - 3 - Eliminated
- Iced Earth - 0 - Eliminated

This completing the group stage in this Metal Bands World Cup!

Next up will be the Knockout stage! =D

That's ok, I'm not a huge fan of all the bands presented here in this World Cup either, just wanted to let you know what the band was like...

Next stage will be up soon! =D
