    In this game, or more precisely, sub-games, we'll try to deduce Maidenfans' favorite band.

    There'll be separate games for best/favorite vocalists, guitarists, bassists, drummers and keyboardists.

    Vocalists and guitarists games will have 64 to 100 players, the other games probably less, depending on nominations.

    I'm not sure whether to include Maiden members in any of these games, since they are likely to win each one... What's your opinion on that?

    I haven't figured out a format for the games yet, so if anyone has a suggestion for that, I'm listening! :)

    I'd like to start the nominations with the vocalists. I plan on finishing the list for each game before starting the first game.

    Everyone can nominate 8 vocalists. I can't guarantee all of them will end up in the final game though.

    Rules on that:
    • If you can stick to metal/rock, that'd be nice. I'll accept some exceptions though. Example: Dave Gahan from Depeche Mode. In my eyes they are more of a rock band than anything else even though only a couple of their songs are rock, if that makes sense.
    • I know not everyone here likes female vocals in rock/metal, but I'd appreciate it if the ones that do would include some of them in their lists. Same goes for death/black metal harsh vocalists. If you really can't it's fine though.
    • Also, it'd be cool if you checked other people's lists before posting so that there are no duplicates :) I'm pretty sure everyone will want to choose Halford, Dio, Freddie Mercury etc, but there's no need for 10 people to nominate them.
    • Also, I know everyone likes some obscure vocalist no one on the forum listens to, so just try to make your lists a bit more competitive :)
    • It's probably gonna be a month or two before I start the game; so you don't need to rush + you can just edit your list whenever you want so there's no need for you to post multiple times ;)
    Think that's it when it comes to rules, hope I didn't forget anything. Discuss!

    Obviously Bruce would win here. Don't include him as we can already assume he is #1

    James LaBrie - Dream Theater
    Maynard Keenan - Tool
    Geoff Tate - Queensryche
    Joakim Broden - Sabaton
    Layne Stayley - AiC
    Kurt Cobain - Nirvana
    Geddy Lee - Rush

    I agree there should be no Maiden members included, too much bias.

    Russell Allen
    John Bush
    Matt Barlow
    James Hetfield
    Roy Khan
    Tommy Karevik
    Neil Fallon
    Ray Alder

    Also, obviously DIO and also Mikael Akerfeldt, but Mosh already said them. :) Speaking of, @Mosh - are you nominating all those people as singers? Never thought I'd see John Petrucci get nominated as a vocalist, especially after PlaybackGate.

    Oh man sorry, didn't read the rules carefully enough. :oops:

    I have edited my post to nominate the correct singer.

    He's way better than Doug Pinnick.

    Myles Kennedy
    Eddie Vedder
    Chris Cornell
    Urban Breed
    Max Cavalera
    Skin (Skunk Anansie)

    Edit: Jeff Buckley

    Also, would we be voting for a singer or a frontman? Because there are instances of quite powerful frontmen who can't really sing... *cough*Cobain*cough*

    Ariana beat me to Eddie Vedder. I doubt he will make it very far on this forum, but Pearl Jam is one of my absolute favorite bands.

    Among those not said already, I'll add Dave Grohl, Ripper Owens, and Hansi Kürsch to the nominations.

    I'm sure I'll think of a few more later.

    Forostar Conjure the Death Star again

    Tony Martin (Black Sabbath)
    Messiah Marcolin (Candlemass)
    Greg Graffin (Bad Religion)
    Ray Gillen (Black Sabbath and others)
    Even though there isn't much Sabbath material with him, he still should be mentioned because the man (RIP) was unbelievably good.

    Barry Hay (Golden Earring)
    Michael Kiske (Helloween)
    Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac)
    Jan-Chris de Koeyer (Gorefest)

    Nice choice. I've always rated her as a vocalist, although Skunk Anansie don't get a lot of discussion around here.

    "Weird Al" Yankovic
    Phil Collins
    Freddie Mercury
    David Byrne
    Brian Wilson
    Jon Anderson
    John Lennon
    Ian Gillan

    ...and here's my suggestions.

    Edit: I was told I can only nominate eight.

    Eric Adams
    David Byron
    Roger Daltrey
    Johan Hegg
    Phil Mogg
    Henri Sattler

    And although I realise he might be too obscure for this game, I very strongly nominate Markus Becker (Atlantean Kodex).

    However, I think we can all agree that if Christopher Bowes doesn't win this game, it's the farce to end all farce.

    How did this go so long before someone had the good sense to nominate Freddie...
  17. Perun

    Perun Cheesemäster Staff Member

    Because everybody thought everybody else would nominate him.
  18. Brigantium

    Brigantium Recovering tea addict Staff Member

    Tomi Joutsen (Amorphis)
    Doogie White (just about everybody's solo project; 90s Rainbow)
    Lzzy Hale (Halestorm)
    Stu Block (Into Eternity; Iced Earth)
    Tarja Turunen (Nightwish)
    Sebastian Bach :p (Skid Row)
    Ann Wilson (Heart)

    He'll surely be in the game even if no one nominates him, since I'll fill in the gaps once nominations are closed :)

    What? I nominated him. :confused:
