Its really difficult for me. I like them all. I regret not adding Hinds/Keihler from Mastodon but I knew I was forgetting someone when making this list out. I really debated between Maiden, Priest, Slayer and Down but went with Down cause I know they won't get as many votes and I have seen them live more times than any other band on the list.
