Top 10 Extreme Metal Questions to Ask Users of TheTopTens


The Top Ten

1 Death Metal or Black Metal?

Death Metal easily. I'm very picky with Black Metal. The only black metal bands that I am a huge fan of are Venom, Bathory, Satyricon, Immortal, Emperor, and some Mayhem.

Where as Death Metal I find it easier to enjoy and headbang to - ryanrimmel

I prefer death metal but I like some selected black metal songs. - Metal_Treasure

I love them equally. Impossible to choose. - IronSabbathPriest

Death metal.

2 Death or Possessed?

Possessed are good, but Death were fantastic. - IronSabbathPriest

Both influential, but Death wins. No contest - ryanrimmel


3 Cannibal Corpse or Deicide?

Deicide. I'm not a huge fan of early Cannibal Corpse - ryanrimmel

Decide. No contest really. - IronSabbathPriest

CC. Deicide is complete garbage in every way, at least CC, even though they’re bad, at least they have some redeemable values.

4 Mayhem or Immortal?

Immortal. Although neither band are close to being my favourite Black Metal band. - IronSabbathPriest

Immortal, I'm sorry but the only Mayhem I really like is Deathcrush (EP) and De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas. - ryanrimmel

I’ve never really heard either that much.

5 Napalm Death or Cattle Decapitation?

Cattle Decapitation! Every album is amazing, and Travis Ryan is the most versatile Death Metal vocalist in my opinion. Napalm Death's stuff after 1990 is awesome too. - ryanrimmel

Napalm Death. But Cattle Decapitation needs more attention. - IronSabbathPriest

6 Venom or Bathory?

Venom, but very close. In terms of being a "Black Metal" band, its Bathory - ryanrimmel

I have to be an ass again and say they're tied. - IronSabbathPriest

Both suck

7 Meshuggah or Opeth?

Well, I do like Meshuggah. But Opeth are one of my all time favourite bands. - IronSabbathPriest

I can't choose here, both are awesome. - Metal_Treasure

Meshuggah, I like Opeth too, but I never became a huge mega fan like Meshuggah - ryanrimmel

Aaargh, that’s really difficult. Opeth probably

Neurosis is one of my favorites, Atheist is good too. But Neurosis is so experimental/original, and I love that in a band - ryanrimmel

9 Behemoth or Dying Fetus?

I love both, but I'd probably say Dying Fetus - ryanrimmel

10 Emperor or Gorgoroth?

Emperor. They're probably the most diverse Black Metal band. - IronSabbathPriest

Emperor, I really don't like Gorgoroth - ryanrimmel

I say Emperor, too. - Metal_Treasure
