    There are many genres of metal so you can add many here if you want.

    1. Speed metal = Metallica
    2. Thrash = Slayer
    3. Death = Vader
    4. Black = Mayhem
    5. Power = Iron Maiden
    6. Glam = Motley Crue

    your thoughts?

    Metallica may only count as speed metal til their 3rd album. Iron Maider has never been power metal, NWoBHM is the term.

    as for death metal, i still prefere DEATH, Chuck is the best.

    Slayer all the way for me. The albums Reign in Blood, Seasons in the Abyss and God Hates Us All remain all time favourites for me.

    That's interesting, it seems like "God Hates Us All" is always a huge point of contention for most Slayer fans that I know. Personally I think it's a decent record in its own right, of course it isn't going to sound anything like Reign In Blood, they were made decades apart for fuck's sake.

    Although I refuse to use the term with any kind of seriousness, I like a lot of the "post-metal" bands that have been blowing up a bit the last few years or so. Isis, Cult Of Luna, Jesu (sorta), Russian Circles, etc etc all are brilliant.

    I'm not super-familiar with Lamb Of God, but bands like that scarcely come over so I think I'm gonna check it out. Anyone else going?

    Black Sabbath invented the whole imagery so they get first mention.

    Jerusalem is second up for seventies metal. 'Primitive Man' by Jerusalem stands up today. That rocks hard. Peep it

    'The Axeman Cometh' by Wicked Lady is probably the heaviest thing to happen pre seventies. Hells angels from the south of England. grimy dudes. Anyone that goes to the effort of seeking that one out should thank me in advance.

    Southern metal is all about Eyehategod, some grimy dudes.

    I don't listen to that much metal as I did when I was young and uppity, but Black Sabbath (Ozzy era), Slayer, Chimaira, Baroness, Possessed, Megadeth (pre-Countdown era), Type O Negative, Carnivore, Cannibal Corpse, Death, Decide, Testament, Anthrax (only "Sound of White Noise") Pantera and Iron Maiden's self-titled debut and "Powerslave" get dusted off from time to time.

    But I still enjoy going to shows at 13 Club.

    "Phantom of the Opera" is amazing.

    Has anyone heard the Heaven & Hell project yet? It's a relatively-new band featuring Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Ronnie James Dio and Vinnie Appice: the same lineup who put out Black Sabbath's "The Mob Rules."

    Fans say that it's quite good, but I'll take a pass as I'm not a Dio fan.
