Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax are the big four thrash metal bands. Which do you think is the best? For me it's Metallica.

Metallica is the most dynamic and catchy, Megadeth is the most technically proficient and challenging, Slayer is the most raw and consistent, and Anthrax I haven't heard too much from and don't care for at the moment.

I think Slayer is my favorite but Metallica is my most familiar, and Megadeth is growing on me.

This one pwns all...

At least Omega Mitch has a real opinion. >_>
I think that Slayer is a little too...screamy....
Megadeth to me is kinda like Metallica and Slayer put together, but they are kinda good, in fact, I'm listening to them right now.:biggrin:
And then there's Anthrax... I've never listened to them but I plan to.

@Painkiller, I've NEVER heard of that band, and now I see why "Painkiller" is your username <_<

Master of Puppets is overrated. It was a good album, but nowhere near what some claim it to be.

Also, Metallica sold out and started releasing garbage while Sodom stuck to their guns.

It was overrated, but it was still good. And you and Painkiller might kill me for this but I like Metallica's ST.ANGER album, I don't care if it didn't have any solos, and it didn't "alienate" me like a lot of other people say, I just went WTH? and moved on, but no everyone else just kept whining why there are no solos, and why Lars' drum sounded like a steel can, I like that noise, it sounds cool.:cool:

And the reason I made this is to see who's the best of the BIG FOUR not the unknown "Sodom" or "Warbringer".

Anyone who doesn't know who Sodom is, is a poser to the 9001st degree.

I REALLY hope this is trolling. Technically I've caught the bait, but that's better than if that statement were actually serious.

Ah yes, since you've never heard of the band they must be bad. Oh, and I have no idea how my posting of Warbringer makes you notice my username, seeing how my username is the title of a Judas Priest song. Also, I would probably put Slayer ahead of Sodom. I love Sodom, don't get me wrong, but Slayer just put out more quality stuff in my opinion. The only place where Sodom trumps all of these bands is the fact that they never sold out. Sadly the same can't be said for any of the Big 4.

metallixa

ur doin it rong

Metallica got me into metal with the Black Album. St. Anger was a pile of bullcrap. Master of Puppets is way overrated. I heard so much hype about it then when I bothered to listen to it it disappointed me. Justice for All and Ride the Lightning were good, Death Magnetic was okay. I like the Black Album the best merely for Sad but True and the sound of the snare drum in the intro for Of Wolf and Man.

Slayer I haven't particularly listened to. Anthrax bore me and I don't care for them. Megadeth, yeah okay. You gotta like them.

Whoever said Slipknot are better won the internet.

As long as it was a joke.

If you want REAL music and not some lame noise, you'll do yourself a favor and pick up some Linkin Park or Dragonforce albums.

Too much to comprehend why people say they're geniuses, aye. Persons with the smaller mind are easily entertain by 'sound enhancement' pedals, live performances with 75% less speed and cheesy lyrics that sound like a Power Rangers opening theme.

Don't get me wrong. I'm seeing them live myself in a few months. But as far as composing, technics and all the other stuff, Dragunfork fall pretty low on the scale. At least other bands can play their own material.

i agree. ive seen dragonforce live once. but when people are listening to dragonforce, they arnt listening to the lyrics. their listrning to the guitar. alot of Dragonforce's solos are recycled and changed around a little bit

Dragonforce's lyrics are top quality. Anyone from any generation can appriciate the artistic features, quality, and originality of Dragonforce's lyrics.

An english major or intellectual should be able to aid you in your quest to fully understand the deeper meaning Dragonforce's songs put out. :happy:

Or maybe all those years of listening to mediocre noise has made you unable to listen correctly. The first rule of all musics is to have an open mind, and perhaps listening to "Sodom" has closed your mind and made you unable to appriciate the amazing solo's Herman and Sam have delivered.

I've been to basically all their live concerts and experienced ecstacy while headbanging to their amazing metal ballads. They perform flawlessly, I almost feel like I'm in a studio recording each time.

You must have been as drunk as the band, because live footage on Youtube confirms that the guitarists have a beer holster on their mic stands and drink while they're playing, and they constantly hit wrong notes as they attempt to perform their pro-tools crap while drunk.

This comes from a guitarist of 6+ years experience, I know what I'm talking about. They even mess up on their "betcha can't play this" video, and I'm talking the legit one, not the mockeries, and they were sober for that.

Real bands can perform their music. I can point you to a few bands of complexity and skill that even live, equal and even surpass that of DragonFart in the studio.

Hypocrisy, your name is well suited for you. You seem like a cool guy, but you're blissfully ignorant to the truth here.

I will say, that the singer of DragonForce is fantastic, and should leave and find a band with some real maturity and musicianship. The drummer is decent, not unique at all but at least he keeps the songs from devolving to incomprehensible trash live.

I know how all Metal threads end up on here, so I just read through the first page and reply to what I got from there instead of reading through the huge arguement that followed.

I agree Sodom is waaay better than the big four, and the new Warbringer is ******* amazing.
Ain't my favorites though. Still, whatever, they are both gold.
As for the topic itself, Metallica have a string of good albums and a string of bad albums.
Megadeth is like that, except... better. I prefer Metallica, but Megadeth is better IMO.
Anthrax are good, but compared to the other three in the big four, can't live up.
So, I'll go with Slayer. Been really into them lately. And have released a lot of good ****.
