Let me give you an example
Metallica
Pros
An excellent mixture of both melodic and heavy metal
A wide variety of catchy chorous's and head banging solos
Unique use of main riffs to become one of the most renown metal bands ever
Cons
New albums are weak
James's voice will never sound like it used to
They are owned by WMG

In Flames

Now someone critique In flames then say your own band underneath

In Flames,

Pros

Brilliant vocals i.e Jester Race, Crawling through Knives, very nice guitar riffs/solos with melodic aspects at times. They combine melodic songs and brutal metal songs very well. Very good live performances.

Cons

Newer songs are not as good as older songs and vocal quality has lessened significantly.

Megadeth

Pros

Very good guitarist, as well as innovators to the metal guitar and lyrics and such

Cons

Dave Mustaine is a asshole, making everyone hate him. And, they are overly popularized

Pros

Not a lot. Barnes was a pretty sick vocalist, I guess. Webster is a pretty solid bassist too.

Cons

Constantly reproduce same album, boring, pretty shitty after a few listens.

i guess i'll keep the thread alive.....

Iron Maiden

Pros

Dickinson is only second to Dio when it comes to heavy metal vocals
Steve Harris is AMAZING
Live show is definitely one of the best you will ever see

Cons
Blaze Bailey sucks.... there was like a 4 album streak of complete trash
too many songs sound alike
sorta changed their style in the latter years, and although it sounded good, i don't like bands when they change their style

Guys remember you say a band after the review
Sonata Arctica
Pros
Uplifting and catchy songs
Once in a while there is a great solo
Good combination of love and adventure songs
Have done some excellent cover songs
Cons
What the **** is with the new cd? Its sad "dark" and depressing, worst change ever
I think Metallica's change was less harsh, I mean holy ****
They fired there solo guitarist, now they only have keyboard solos

Blind Guardian

Brilliant mix of power, melodeath and folk, with awesome leads: the only con is that Time has been delayed about a bajillion times!

Immortal.

well.....im not a fan of immortal. in fact i think they are whats wrong with all black metal.
but i wont get started since im not a fair judge. someone else can take over

i will do stratovarius

Pros
Quite possoibly the pest power metal i know of. their keyboardist is a god, their guitar player progressed so much over the course of the band. he is so amazing. the instrumentals made me want to ride into battle on my white eagle and bring peace to the farming town

Cons
it sucks if you dont like power metal. i can see how the lyrics could drive people mad. power metal lyrics are always weird and slightly gay. lol


i was gonna say scar symmetry...but nobody but me listens *sad face*
so...Ensiferum

Eh? I don't follow. Immortal are one of the best and most loved bm bands ever, what is wrong with them? And, unlike say Darkthrone, they can write a decent riff. Immortal were the band that got me into black metal, and Abbath is a god as far as I'm concerned.
