I just wanted to know what each of your guys' all time favorite bands are and why. For me it's The Doors

- Very poetic and meaningful lyrics
-Jim Morrison is one of the best frontmen of all time
-Robbie Krieger can play bottleneck, flamenco, and good old-fashioned blues guitar like a master.
-Excellent songwriting, you will have one song that is good blues rock, one that is jazzy, and another that is crazy psychedelic
-A very big influence to heavy metal, they were one of the first bands to adopt a darker sound in an era that was all about free-love and happiness. One of the first bands to play music and sing about something that is real.
-There has NEVER been a band that could replicate what they did, even remotely

and that is why they are my favorite band

I probably can't provide the greatest explanation but mine is Lamb of God

One: Talented Musicians, even though they are crazy popular now -.-

Two: They are willing to change their sound every album they come out
with until they made something that sticks with them (Wrath sound)

Three: They have very good songs, and different songs, the singer doesnt
even matter to me.

Four: They took their songs and made them sound easy but once you actually
look at what they play its hard as ****.

Five: I have always liked them and respected them ever since Great American Gospel

Death.

Constantly evolving, never doing the same thing twice. Always attracting major talent like Richard Christy and Steve DiGiorgio. Chuck is a vocal and guitar god, and they basically invented death metal. They also made the greatest album in existence, with The Sound of Perseverance.

SLAYER

One of the big 4 that is kickin' ass still today .
made " the " lp that changed metal music for all time .. REIGN IN BLOOD
The 4 members that started the band are stil together ( sorry paul )
Have never made " THAT " lp

But most of all slayer makes me want more , I want to go harder , faster , That never give up feeling comes over me when slayer is blasting ..

Now i know all the death / black / doom /metal fans think that slayer is soft but in 86 there was nothing as hard as slayer ...


Time melts away in this living inferno,
Trapped by a cause that I once understood.
Feeling a sickness building inside of me,
Who will I really have to answer to.

March on through the rivers of red.
Souls drift, they fill the air.
Forced to fight, behind,
The crooked cross.

Do only what is expected of me,
With no emotions my feelings suppressed.
Blind obedience carries me through it all.
Conscience a word I learned to forget.

March on through the rivers of red.
Flesh burns, it fills the air. [sings: Souls drift, they fill...]
Forced to fight, behind,
The crooked cross.

LEAD: HANNEMAN, KING
KING, HANNEMAN

Time melts away in this living inferno,
Trapped by a cause that I once understood.
Blind obedience carries me through it all,
Do only what is expected of me.

March on through the rivers of red.
Souls drift, they fill the air.
Forced to fight, behind,
The crooked cross.

Blatant lie: Possessed had already released Seven Churches in '85 and Death had already released the very first death metal recording way before in '83, Death by Metal, under the name of Mantas. Slayer were soft by '86.

Consistency, hah! They should have stopped recording after Something Wild: their only decent album. Laiho is so overrated, but that's just my opinion. Blooddrunk was offensive it was that poor. Janne Warman is the only good thing going for that band.
