I'm listening to Operation: Mindcrime, as you do.

That bit at the start of Revolution Calling where the lead first kicks in between the intro and Geoff's first line.

Man that bit's amazing. So I'm thinking, what are the best recorded moments in metal?

A couple of my other personal favourites is the one-two combination of Call of Ktulu and Master of Puppets on S&M and the three-guitar soloing frenzy that occupies the final two-and-a-half minutes of Wasted White Boys by W.A.S.P.

Anyone else?

1) Adrian's solo in "Hallowed be Thy Name"

2) The intro sequence of Van Halen's "I'm The One"

3) The thrash break in Slayer's "Angel of Death"

4) The last section in the live version of Priest's "Genocide" where Halford is screaming "ON THE ROCKS!"

5) Metallica's "Fight Fire With Fire." The whole damn thing.

Kirks solo in Ride The Lightning.

When the bass riff of the begining of Peace Sells becomes the guitar bit.

Black Sabbath's whole Symptom Of The Universe song,in my opinion the first thrash song.

Daves solo in Phantom Of The Opera

The rain in Black Sabbath... the first note of Black Sabbath.. the riff of Black Sabbath...

What is this that stands before me?
Figure in black which points at me
Turn around quick, and start to run
Find out I'm the chosen one
Oh no

Big black shape with eyes of fire
Telling people their desire
Satan's sitting there, he's smiling
Watches those flames get higher and higher
Oh no, no, please God help me

The last minute of Hallowed Be Thy Name -- particularly the guitar harmony bit.

Most of the aforementioned, but my personal favorite has to be the guitar that leads into the "Triumphant, Champion of Ithaca" part of the Odyssey. Gets me every time, and was the most energetic thing I've ever seen live.

The 45 seconds or so of As I Am by Dream Theater, where it slowly builds to that killer main riff. Awesome.

I don't know; I'd say the mosh riff in the middle of Angel of Death is probably the most badass riff in metal history.

I was relistening to Edge of Sanity's "Crimson" today, and...well, if you've ever heard it, you know precisely what moment I'm referring to.

For the king had showed them that it could be done,
When his woman gave birth to the sacred one.
But is she of man, made of flesh and blood,
Or is she the offspring of the unholy...

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!

Gives me chills every time.:drool:

I've always considereed Slayer to be one of the most ungodly overrated bands of all time.

It's not even that I hate thrash, I like a good bit of it, I've just always hated Slayer.

I will actually agree that Slayer aren't that great - ever since South of Heaven their albums have been rather lame.

However, you can't overlook the classics! Songs like Raining Blood, War Ensemble, Angel of Death - those are stone cold legendary.

I agree with that, and I actually think Slayer is the most overrated metal band ever. That being said, nothing wrong with the first 4.

Finest moments in metal:

Manowar's first album
the conception of Electic Eye
when Dave Mustaine "left" Metallica and went on to create Megadeth
when Blaze Bayley quit Iron Maiden

According to my self-calculated list, it ranks 112th in Maiden's studio album catalogue.

As far as I'm aware Blaze never quit Maiden. He was asked to step down so that Bruce could come back.

And anyway, we're talking *recorded* moments. Those great, spine-tingling moments on an album.

Why?

Because thrash is great when it's technical and varied. Slayer are neither, they're just fast and formulaic.

And I know everyone worships the early stuff, but aside from certain tracks of awesomeness like Dead Skin Mask, I'd much rather listen to Diabolus In Musica and especially God Hates Us All.

Every time Zeeb Parkes sings "IIIIII'M THE WITCHFINDER GENERAALLLLLL" in the namesake song by Witchfinder General. Such a good.

What now lonely man who's standing
In the shadows of the streets
You're left alone with no helpin' hand beside you
You hide from the daylight living in darkness
You got no friends you can trust nobody
Except for yourself
The only shade that's beside you
Is the shade of Lucifer
Laughing with a satanic smile
And his friend Death sharpens his sickle
You don't wanna die, do you? But you will
You will burn in heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllllllll!!!
