Well... seems like you're in a bit of a status-quo there AvengedSevenfold11?!

I will be closing the 'Shadow Final' soon and so you're running out of time... clock's ticking... ;)

You've gotta be kidding me... Iron Hag made it this far? -.- As a proud cowboy from Hell, I cast my vote for Pantera! Greatest Groove Metal band to grace the Earth. I'd just like to add a few more example songs, if I may? :)

5 Minutes Alone
The Art of Shredding
This Love

And on the side, I'd like to present Evile's cover of Cemetery Gates.

Personally I'm not a fan of either band.  But in this instance I will chose Iron Maiden.  I haven't heard much of anything by Pantera I care to listen to.  While Iron Maiden manages to sneak one in from time to time.  Plus they have Eddie.  Who doesn't love a band with a mascot?!?  lol.

My vote:  Iron Maiden.

My vote goes to Iron Maiden, I like both bands, but Iron Maiden are truly legends; plus, Dance of the Dead is one of my favourite metal songs.

that's hard to say, both bands have paved the ground for other bands, but since i am who i am, i''m going for pantera because they are better to me with the heavy riffs and straight forward songs that wll kill you in a moshpit

@ Legion1350 : Of course you're welcome to post some more example videos, no problem! Only shows your preference and that your a big fan of them! Excellent! =)

@ ilberic : LOL I have to agree on 'Eddie' there... it's an iconic figure that's forever linked to Metal music in general, PLUS a great commercial asset Iron Maiden has! Whomever came up with 'Eddie' for an idea MUST be worshipped! *bows with dignity*

---

The first batch of votes are in and it seems that Iron Maiden has found it's true equal in battle here! =D
