Actually JUST finished compiling this list myself. It's still somewhat sketchy, especially within the last 5, but it'll do.

01.Iron Maiden
02.Savatage
03.Edguy
04.Evergrey
05.Blind Guardian
06.Dungeon
07.Nocturnal Rites
08.Stratovarius
09.Gamma Ray
10.Queensryche (1983-1994)
11.Symphony X
12.Riot
13.Dream Theater
14.Fates Warning
15.Bruce Dickinson
16.Redemption
17.Masterplan
18.Firewind
19.Royal Hunt
20.Vanishing Point
21.Dio
22.Saxon
23.Primal Fear
24.Pink Cream 69
25.Circle II Circle

In addition to that, I will name 4 bands I used to love that would've easily made this list like 4 years ago, but now I can't justify the love anymore. Still like them, just not nearly as much as I used to.:
01.Iced Earth
02.Sonata Arctica
03.Hammerfall
04.Kamelot

And also, a special nod to 5 newer bands that could easily secure a spot neither the bottom of this list if they just release one more GREAT album.
01.Pagan's Mind
02.Seventh Wonder
03.Circus Maximus
04.Avantasia
05.Pyramaze

I'll think about this in more detail another time, but here're my initial thoughts, not in order.

And by the way, naming a period of years is ridiculous. Especially Black Sabbath. Judge a band on their entire career or not at all.

Guns N' Roses
Queensryche
Overkill
Testament
Cathedral
Stuck Mojo
Arena
Megadeth
Black Sabbath
Black Label Society
Annihilator
Bigelf
Metallica
Candlemass
Threshold
Down
Dio
W.A.S.P.
Opeth
Reverend Bizarre
Amor
Bruce Dickinson
Savatage
Saint Vitus

Noteable mentions: Iron Maiden, Symphorce, Judas Priest, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rage, AC/DC, Alice Cooper, Alice In Chains, Kreator, Destruction, Slayer, Rob Zombie, Brainstorm, Lions Share, Bon Jovi, Ozzy Osbourne, Iced Earth, Fates Warning, Spiritual Beggars, Grand Magus, KISS, Dark Angel, Paul Weller, Krux, White Zombie, Queen, The Almighty, Dream Theater, Deep Purple, Union, The Black Crowes, Motorhead

1.Anaal Nathrakh
2. Slayer
3. Iron Maiden
4. Celtic Frost
5. Judas Priest
6. Obituary
7. Unleashed
8. High On Fire
9. Suicidal Tendencies
10. Boris
11. Sodom
12. Morbid Angel
13. Immortal
14. Absu
15. Blind Guardian
16. Impaled
17. Andrew W.K.
18. Cannibal Corpse
19. Ildjarn
20. Dying Fetus
21. Impaled
22. Napalm Death
23. Arsis
24. Dark Funeral
25. Hellhammer

5-25 are pretty much interchangeable.

I agree. I included one, and I'll elaborate.

My placement of Queensryche is based on my reflection of their entire career, more or less. I simply specified that I don't care about anything post-Promised land. I know it's there, it factored into my decision - I just like the stuff I like enough to still overlook it. It was just a means of clarification.

Oh boy this will be a bit tough as I love many bands, I think my top 10 is pretty accurate, they rest changes all the time.

1. AC/DC (got me into rock/metal, always will have a special place for me)
2. Slayer (well look at my name...)
3. Megadeth
4. Death/Control Denied/Mantas
5. Exodus
6. Celtic Frost/Hellhammer
7. Mayhem
8. Immortal
9. Amon Amarth
10. Skeletonwitch
11. Municipal Waste
12. Iron Maiden

19. Judas Priest
20. Sodom
21. Motorhead
22. Children of Bodom
23. Blind Guardian
24. Bathory
25. Bolt Thrower

Crap, looking at this now I'm not so sure about this list ha, oh well itll do for now

JuuKun
02-07-2010, 09:11 AM
Hm...after narrowing it down (After the first 14 or so, the order is a little fuzzy)...

1. Children of Bodom
2. Morgana Lefay
3. After Forever
4. Pagan's Mind
5. blink-182
6. Sentenced
7. Tarot
8. Billy Idol
9. Moonspell
10. God Dethroned
11. Epica
12. Destruction
13. Primordial
14. Behemoth
15. Elvenking
16. Ihsahn
17. Manticora
18. Pain
19. Ensiferum
20. Gorguts
21. Impaled Nazarene
22. Lacuna Coil
23. Freak Kitchen
24. Nightwish
25. Edguy

Vader, Saint Vitus, Sinergy, and Darkane almost made the cut.

Depending on if those sort of collaborations counts or not, you could also kick Edguy and Nightwish off my list and put Elton John/Tim Rice/Hans Zimmer (The Lion King :party: ) and Alan Menken/Howard Ashman (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast) in my Top 10 somewhere.

I kind of dissagree with you on this one buddy. The perfect example of this for me is Metallica, if I juge them on how I like 'em now they would not even do my top 50 bands, but in all honestly I have to include them in my list because of these 4 first records that are sooo amazing and these 80's years where they were so dominant live & I used to love them so much back then. Sepultura is another good example of amazing music & love by me up until Max left & I didn't love em anymore that much without him.

I'll update my list and post it soon ...

ok, it goes like this for me ...


1 Iron Maiden (no one has ever been close of taking their throne since I first heard the Number Of The Beast album back in 1983)
2 Pink Floyd (another kind of mood but they are alone in that stoner department)
3 Slayer (talk about stay true to your roots I love their violence)
4 Children Of Bodom (the new young kings of metal with a lead man really carismatic & unique genre of death\thrash\melodic metal)
5 Amon Amarth (Viking Power !)
6 System Of A Down ( unique genre also I love them)
7 Black Sabbath (mainly the begining Ozzy years but also with Dio)
8 Metallica (they are there just for the amazing 1983-1990 era)
9 Venom
10 Offenbach (an old Quebec rock and roll band of the 80's)
11 Pantera (RIP Dime)
12 Led Zeppelin (RIP John)
13 Megadeth ( The guy has talent, no question about it)
14 Dio (I almost don't listen to him anymore too bad, I saw him 10 times solo)
15 Sepultura ( the Max albums)
16 Bruce Dickinson
17 Pearl Jam ( I got hook on them at the begining of the grunge style early 90's , saw them 5 or 6 times)
18 Accept
19 Bob Marley
20 Iced Earth ( up until Matt first left the band, they are horrible since then with the exeption of a few songs like Gettysburgh)
21 Alice In Chains (RIP Layne)
22 B L A Z E
23 Rage Against The Machine (also pretty unique)
24 Kreator
25 Ozzy Osbourne

See, to me that makes it pretty clear cut. Neither are one of your favourite bands. Nine Metallica albums (not counting Garage Inc.)... you like four. 44% doesn't sound like Top 25 material to me.

You should be aware that a fellow representing the folks in Items #16 through 18 on your list just phoned.
He not-so-respectfully informed me that the bands in question require you to remove them from this list immediately.

But you see, in Metallica's case there was a large sound change from the first four albums to nearly every other album they've released. Same with Sepultura, although Sepultura was more of a gradual change. I'm in the same boat as Powermaiden, I love the first five albums, but the rest dont settle with me too well.

those 4 first albums are so strong, so inovative (if you put in perspective the years they came out) that to me they give Metallica a lot of ranks in my ranking of bands. So just by jugging them on that I find they are better than all the bands I listed below. anyway that's the way I see it :)

maybe not for you but Whitechapel is a great band whether people like them or not. This Is Exile is probably the greatest deathcore album to come out, with of course 90% of them being shit.

A friend of mine has a theory regarding bands:

Once you release 4 "Masterpieces", it doesn't really matter what else you do - you're "in". This is how he justifies that Queensryche are still one of his favorite bands, even though he hates everything they've done in the past 15 years.

I don't agree in black and white, but I'm alright with the logic.

To be honest, I could understand Lamb of God being on some people's list. They wouldn't be on mine, I like them, but they aren't a top 25 band. But for some people, they changed and revolutionized metal (for them) in a good way.

Alright, an "official" top ten. I feel good about this.

1. Iron Maiden
2. Clutch
3. Opeth
4. Rush
5. Mastodon
6. Between the Buried and Me
7. Carcass
8. My Dying Bride
9. Immortal
10. Megadeth

Megadeth only falls to 10 because Risk and United Abominations are worse than anything the rest of these bands have ever made (despite not TOTALLY sucking.)

Also, I realize this looks like "oh, well he's just representing every facet of his tastes with one band," but that's kind of for a reason. When I want to listen to classic metal a lot, Maiden eats up 75% of that listening; when I want to listen to rock n' roll, Clutch eats up 75%; lotsa prog metal splits between Opeth, Mastodon, and BTBAM; prog rock primarily goes to Rush; death metal to Carcass; doom metal to My Dying Bride; black metal to Immortal; thrash to Megadeth. So, yeah, it's kind of by design. I love all these genres, but when I get on a real genre kick, these are the bands that come to the front of the pack, and I don't need excuses to listen to any of them out of the blue either.

I based mine more on the number of songs each band has that I like. Bands like Slayer, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Ozzy/Sabbath, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, etc... all really only have a hand full of songs that I like. I really wouldn't have a top 25 if I didn't put the 1-2 album bands in

This isn't directed towards anyone, but how do you justify having certain bands on there when they've only released one or two albums?

Just depends on how good those albums are.

Masterplan and Redemption both have only 4 albums but are undoubtedly top 20 material for me, because I find them each to have at least two 9/10 albums - probably three. And that's out of only 4 albums total. 3 GREAT albums is pretty much the "entry" into my top 20. I'm not talking about albums I really like, but albums I love - album-of-the-year (or at least top 5)contenders for their given year(s) of release. If a band doesn't have at least 2 or 3 of those albums total, no matter how many albums they have, I won't give them a second thought for this list (unless it's a band who has released like 8-10 very good albums over a long stretch of time, because that sort of consistency is hard to find). Therefore bands with less than 3 albums are pretty much automatically out.

Something like that. I'm gonna update my list soon.

Just missing the list was Queensryche.
Not included were collaboration or side project bands. Such as Temple of the Dog, Avantasia, Demons and Wizards, Control Denied and TSO.

I see a distinct lack of Therion in all these top 25 lists. Which makes me wonder if that many people have actually even heard them. Even though Metallica has had 4 masterpieces, 2 very good, 2 mediocre albums and 1 horrific they still rank 2 for me because of the quality of their masterpieces. Maiden may not have any album quite so fantastically compelling to me but they have been remarkably consistent throughout the years. Thats why they got the top spot.

Two bands on my list while they have more than 2 albums most people have only heard two from them. Orphaned Land and Green Carnation most people have only heard maybe one or two albums from either of them but their music is so different and unique that its worthy of recognition. I'd have said the same if Therion had only released Vovin and Gothic Kabballah for example. Or if Pain of Salvation had only released Entropia and BE.

My top 25 album list would be quite an odd sight I'm sure and would include alot more non metal to boot.

Well, I personally would've extended it to 1993. Why? Because "Real World" is incredible. '92 could be an effort to include the Empire tour before they went south, which I can respect.

Regardless of whether I really meant the comment seriously or not, which I didn't, your reaction to it is both juvenile and way over the top (and mis-spelled as well). If you don't learn to lighten up, you're probably going to have a pretty tough time around here...just sayin'.
