23Jason Newsted or Robert Trujillo?Jason Curtis Newsted is an American metal musician, known for being the third bass guitarist with the band Metallica from November 1986 until his departure in January 2001, he was also a part of Voivod and Flotsam and Jetsam.

I actually prefer Rob. He was a cool replacement for Newsted. But neither of them beat the legendary Cliff Burton. - IronSabbathPriest

Definitely Newsted. Honestly, I like him even better than Cliff Burton (my apologies to whoever that offended). The bass on the Black Album was just phenomenal - Shake_n_Bake13

Newsted probably. I'd rather have Trujillo in Suicidal Tendencies cause I love them - ryanrimmel

24Children of Bodom or Amon Amarth?

Children of Bodom. They are one of the single coolest bands I've ever heard in my life - ryanrimmel

25Ozzy Osbourne or Marilyn Manson?

Manson by far. For those who claim Ozzy is the Prince of Darkness, I counter that Manson is the King of Darkness. He is superior to Ozzy in every way - Shake_n_Bake13

Ozzy Osbourne. I don't think anyone would actually vote for manson - ryanrimmel

26Slayer or Marilyn Manson?

I know I'll get hate for this, but I choose Manson. I love Slayer but Manson has more variety than them.

28Nu Metal or Rap Metal?

Korn and Deftones are the only nu-metal bands I actually enjoy, and I hate rap metal. I never was a big Faith No More fan and I hated the Anthrax/Public Enemy song - ryanrimmel

30Vocals or Guitar?

This question has 2 sides:

1) what is more important in metal?
Guitar, because there are metal guitar instrumentals (no vocals) but metal is not possible acapella (only vocals).

2) what do you prefer, bands with better vocals or better guitars?
I prefer bands with better vocals because metal bands usually have pretty good guitars by default but I can't say the same about the vocals.
This answer is based on my own experience and facts - I've never pressed the stop button because guitars were not good enough but I've pressed that button many times because vox hurt my ears. - Metal_Treasure

Neither. Its about how well the guitar and vocals complement each other. - ryanrimmel

Guitar, I like the sound much more - Songsta41

Both, because both are necessary - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

31Blaze Bayley or Tim "Ripper" Owens

I think Tim is a better vocalist, but I prefer the Bayley era of Iron Maiden to the Ripper Owens era of Judas Priest. - IronSabbathPriest

Easily - Tim "Ripper" Owens.
Agree with IronSabbathPriest - Tim is the better singer and it's really sad this guy didn't find the right band to sing for. He was hated in both Judas Priest and Iced Earth provided that there was nothing wrong with his voice and singing. Tim's voice is 100% metal and he sounds more demonic than Halford.
I absolutely love this song and his vocal:
Judas Priest - Cathedral Spires - Metal_Treasure

32Screaming Vocals or Clean Vocals?

It really depends on the mood, so no answer - ryanrimmel

Clean vocals. I personally dislike scream vocals and screamo bands. - 05yusuf09

33Nine Inch Nails or Ministry?

I like Nine Inch Nails more, but ministry is more metallic - ryanrimmel

34Angela Gossow or Alissa White-Gluz?
35Mike Portnoy or Dave Lombardo?

Really no contest here... Go Mike. - IronSabbathPriest
