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!

Oh! I forgot to vote myself... and since I usually cheer for the (sort of) underdog: Deep Purple

Making the stats:

Led Zeppelin-6
Deep Purple-4
Pink Floyd-2
Alice Cooper-1

Reasoning... Led Zeppelin is indeed the better band in this group, but somehow Deep Purple has more 'Rock' in their songs. With this I am referring to the heavier guitar rifs used in their songs as to where Led Zeppelin has more mellow guitar play.

But people... Metal was at first a very mellow genre that evolved through time to a much heavier music, so don't put down other bands that are (at least seem to be) looking like bands not to be posted in this thread...

Led Zeppelin-6-passed to the knockout stage
Deep Purple-4-Passed to the knockout stage
Pink Floyd-2-ELIMINATED
Alice Cooper-1-ELIMINATED

Now, lets vote in group B, they are the BIG 4 OF HEAVY METAL!

Note how the title doesn't have the word Heavy in it.

As for my vote, Metallica hands down.

Explain why you chose a band next time, but I am going to accept your vote.


Metallica-3
Megadeth-1
Anthrax-0
Slayer-0

As it is a special group, we are waiting until one, probably Metallica, reaches 10 points.

My vote goes (again) to the 'underdog' in this group: Megadeth!

Reasoning: since the singer/founder/gitarist of Megadeth, Dave Mustain was the former gitarist of Metallica and got kicked out, he prooved to his former bandmembers that he could live up to his promiss that he woud make it on his own and he stuck to the bands original genre, metal. As where Metallica mellowed down through the years...

This makes the stats as follows:

Metallica-3
Megadeth-2
Anthrax-0
Slayer-0

Anyone care to challenge?
