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!

A lot of people like them. -.-

Not me though.

Judas Priest gets my vote. They're the only one I've heard more than one of two songs of, and those are pretty good.

Judas Priest FTW, Rob Halford is one of the best Metal singers of all time! Not to mention they have epic albums like British Steel and Screaming for Vengeance!

With all bands it's normal that some people like them... and some people don't... got to respect that!

I myself only know of one particular DragonForce song I like, Through The Fire And Flames, but that's the only one since I'm usually not so much into Speed Metal. However, their guitar work is very very impressive though... *bows humble to them*
And you have to admit that, even if you don't like them...

It took some time for me to make a decision on what band I wanted to vote on myself, but I ended up voting for... Helloween! (didn't see that one coming ay?!)

Although Judas Priest is a band that definitely belongs in the hall of fame on 'oldschool metal-bands' (and I am confident they will end up passing the group stage), I still chose the (yes yes again...) underdog in this group.
The vote is based on my actual introducing to the metal genre when I was the age of 11. First band I heard was Helloween and their song I Want Out from the album 'Keeper Of The Seven Keys (Part 2)' from 1988. That song really gave me an 'eargasm' (at that age? yeeeeeeessssss! hahaa)

So with my vote added, the statistics for Group C are now:

Judas Priest-2
Helloween-1
DragonForce-0
Skid Row-0

I'll go with Judas Priest. It's songs like "Painkiller" and "Breaking The Law" that got me into metal. Plus Glenn Tipton is one of the most underrated, 'awesomest' guitarists I know of. K.K. is pretty good, but Glenn is honestly better.

You voted on DragonForce because the song Trough the Fire and Flames is good, right? OK

My vote: It goes for Judas Priest because it's the band with more great songs in this group, like "Painkiller", "Breaking the Law", "Eletric eye", it was hard to decide, as I like Skid Row so much too, the band that made the awesome song "Slave to the Grind".

And MrDayCee, the song "I Want Out", by Helloween, is really good, but it's the only one I heard from this band.

Judas Priest-4
DragonForce-1
Helloween-1
Skid Row-0
