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!

Who? 'Agalloch'? Never heard of them... :S
Well, maybe for the next edition of the 'MBWC' then...

We still need three more votes to present a winner in this 'MBWC', so come on people...

VOTE!!! =D

Megadeth are a very good metal band, nonetheless I will vote led Zeppelin, they are one of the progenitors of heavy metal and also I personally love their sound and many of their songs. Black dog for example is an amazing song.

I think it's time to throw my vote in the arena as well... =)

I vote for Led Zeppelin! Allthough Megadeth is a great Metal band with some real jewlz in their discography in order of riffs and lyrics... they are still no match for one of the founding bands of the Metal genre!
Led Zeppelin have proven to be pioneers in music by stretching and altering the (up to that point in time) much loved Rock and Roll and set a new course to the unknown horizon...
They can't be ignored (and shouldn't be!) as one of the fathers of our current Metal mania!

So with my personal vote in, the new ranking shows:

KO-Round 1

Megadeth - 7
Led Zeppelin - 4

Will it still become an exciting finish? =D

Megadeth has started with a rush, but now Led Zeppelin is catching up to them as it seems! =D

KO-Round 1

Megadeth - 7
Led Zeppelin - 5

Never thought this was going to happen, but hey...

'It ain't over, till the fat lady sings!' as they say... =D

My vote goes to Megadeth. I personally don't consider Led Zeppelin metal so I can't vote for them.

I hope you understand you'll need 19 people to vote in the worst scenario.
Not the best idea you had got...

Led Zeppelin, legendary stuff! Megadeth wouldn't be near their style if it hadn't been for Led Zep being there first!

Dude....Led Zeppelin is 100% Metal. But I wanted Megadeth to win anyway so as long as you picked them.

Led Zeppelin is totally metal. The only reason why you young 'uns don't think they're metal is because they're not nearly as loud as those crap bands you guys listen to. Led Zeppelin, along with The Who, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, and Deep Purple, invented the music that we now call "heavy metal" today. Without those bands, Megadeth simply wouldn't exist. So I vote for Led Zeppelin. That's totally ridiculous that they're losing to Megadeth, who doesn't have close to the catalogue Led Zeppelin had.

The only reason you old 'uns think Led Zeppelin are metal is because it was the loudest thing you ever heard back then. Zep are great, but not metal, hard rock at best, though considered simply classic rock by most. And The Who aren't metal by a loooong stretch.

You're 15... calling people in the same age group as you "young 'uns" just makes you look ridiculous. I don't think they're metal because they're not, they're hard rock. Led Zeppelin helped lay the groundwork, but Black Sabbath was the first band to play pure heavy metal.
