    Six songs each band should almost always play in their shows.

    Let's see what songs you think are the must plays regarding several bands. It's not like they're your favorite half a dozen songs by each band but the ones you consider to be more iconic. Since this is also merely an exercise it doesn't matter if the a band can no longer pull song x or y live...

    10 favorite records from each metal genre (one per band).

    Self explanatory. Going to start this one with genres I am not too much attached. Let's kick it with Power Metal: Helloween - Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part 1 (1987): First and foremost obviously Helloween since a) they're arguably the creators of the entire thing b) are by far the genre's...

    Senjutsu's album review (song by song and overall)

    IRON MAIDEN - SENJUTSU: Senjutsu: 17 records and 41 years after their debut it's hard to predict how a Maiden album will boot. But this one seems to go really down the Samurai/ oriental war theme from the get go. It starts with tribal war drums mixed with shackles and some background effects to...

    Best ten Melodic Death Metal records of each era

    Well it's time for Melodic Death Metal. It's a bit difficult to pick a consensus on the 4 biggest bands (some say it's the Gothenburg three plus Carcass while others claim to be Amorphis, Children Of Bodom, Amon Amrarth and Arch Enemy). So this time everyone's on! 1990 to 1994: Amorphis - Tales...

    Best Death Metal/ Grind records by era ("big 4" not included)

    Well... I did the same Hard n'Heavy/ Power Metal and Thrash/ Speed Metal. So it's only fair to do the same for Death Metal. Metalsucks made a poll regarding "Death Metal's big 4" and the results were Death, Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel and Obituary. You can also include Mellow Scandinavian...

    Best ten Classic Heavy/ Power Metal records of each era (besides the "big 6")

    Well, after Thrash Metal it's only fair we do the same for Hard n' Heavy/ Power Metal. The Big 6 that won't be allowed are in this case: Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Metallica. Let's start in 1976 when the NWOBHM started to emerge. Prog Metal bands are...

    Best ten Thrash Metal records of each era (besides the "big 4")

    Just wondering about what thrash albums you prefer regarding each era other than the classics by Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. Let's split it in 5 year interval and well... Stuff like crossover (Suicidal Tendencies, DRI, SOD) and Death Thrash (Sepultura, Morbid Saint, Protector) are...

    Rank the "Single" songs.

    Self explanatory. Try not to repeat songs (just pick the best version from a single edition): 40 - "Wasting Love": Maiden playing AOR power ballads? No way! And Bruce's voice sounds awful. Cool entering lead and solos. Other than that this Wasting Love is truly a waste of time. 39 - "From...

    Well let's see what metal you're made of. Note that this list won't feature some bands I don't consider to be metal per se (like Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Boston, Alice In Chains or Tool just to name some) or some albums from metal bands that are better suited in other categories (One Second...

    Best final album of bands that will never record a new one (or are reaaaally unlike to).

    Let's dig deep in our memories and try to get a top 10 list. Here's mine: 10) Bolt Thrower - Those Once Loyal: Although they wouldn't know by then, 2004 would mark the last release of one of Death Metal's finest acts. In truth the band would still record an album that never saw the light of...
