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!

I can't stand listening to Metallica. I feel that way about all metal, but Deep Purple is not metal, and they are much more listenable for me.

<This is a vote for Deep Purple>

Well this time im going to do the right thing!

I will vote for Metallica for one reason.
They are a heavy metal band! I have allways loved metal becose of the awesome instrumtal use. The gitarr solos and the riffs are the best in the world, and if you have the chance to hear them live... You must go there and hear them play cus Metallica live is one of the best experience in you LIFE!

If you can't stand listening to metal, maybe you shouldn't be here hmm? This is a vote for the best metal band, if you hate all metal bands then you shouldn't be voting.

Either way, I vote for Metallica. Deep Purple is great, but I personally prefer Metallica. Older Metallica anyhow.

This thread would probably be more popular if you didn't shove your opinions down everyone's throat.

I only vote here when there is a non-metal band battling. If there are two metal bands, you won't see me here.

No, I'm not shoving them down people's throats, I'm stating them.

My point, however, is that you are biased towards metal bands because you do not like metal, yet that's what we're trying to accomplish here (see which is the best metal band). It doesn't quite make sense to me that a person who doesn't like metal votes for a non-metal band to win the Metal Bands World Cup.

Actually, they're proper metal, what it originally was. Classic heavy metal I believe it's called. Follows the Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Deep Purple, etc. vein.

My vote is for Metallica. Epic. I do feel like I'm the only one who prefers their melodic stuff more than their abrupt stuff. Also known as 'New' Metallica.

That's also the reason I do quite like their instrumentals. They're not so fast, but still awesome.

Fast stuff is f-ing epic, though. Melodic is just more epic.

Metallica, they have a lot more stuff I enjoy, Ride the Lightning is one of my favourite Metal albums of all time!

Round #2 is on the way... and how! =D

Seems Metallica is taking the lead in this battle... will it be over this quick? Or will Deep Purple fight their way back towards victory...

The battle count show us thus far:

KO-Round #2

Metallica - 6
Deep Purple - 2

Anyone want to make it interesting by nudging Deep Purple back in the saddle? =)

Oh man, two great bands. Deep Purple was great, but how can they beat out Metallica? Metallica is the sole reason why metal music has remained popular into the 21st century. Sorry Deep Purple, I know you guys were pioneers, but Metallica has just been on top of their game for too long.
