The Top Ten
One of the greatest music debates ever - ryanrimmel
I love them both and I'm aware of their advantages and disadvantages but I would eventually go with Metallica because Hetfield's voice is way better - his distinctive roar instantly speaks 'metal' to me.
I will never understand why Mustaine didn't hire a master singer for Megadeth to make this band (almost) perfect. - Metal_Treasure
Megadeth all the way - RustyNail
Maiden has better albums
Helloween had some really bad albums whilst Blind Guardian didn't. Some Blind Guardian albums are not that amazing but can't be called bad.
Besides, Helloween hasn't released anything mindblowing since the Keeper II (80s), whereas Blind Guardian have been improving over time and had great albums in the 90s and 00s. Their 2015 album is awesome, too. - Metal_Treasure
To be honest I find both (bands) to be very overrated. Ozzy hasn't released a great solo album since No More Tears, and Dio just tried to make Holy Diver parts 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10.
But if I had to choose it would be Dio, because of Ronnie's voice. - IronSabbathPriest
Pantera, no doubt
Update: I would say Blind Guardian because of their epic and perfect 2015 album. - Metal_Treasure
These bands are known for their epic stuff so it will be an epic duel. I love them both and really can't say who is better and who is gonna win. These 2 bands are also friends and it makes the choice even more difficult (every time Iced Earth play Germany, Hansi of Blind Guardian joins them onstage and sings their songs).
Finally - a tie fits best, in my opinion. - Metal_Treasure
Overkill (But I Like Anthrax Too) - christangrant
Tool is amazing. But nothing is close to Dream Theater. - zxm
Tool is too amazing to lose to anything that ain't considered the best
Battle To See Who Made The First Death Metal Album - christangrant
I wanna see two of the finest lead guitar players in thrash - Alex Skolnick of Testament and Jeff Waters of Annihilator. - Metal_Treasure
No doubt, this is gonna be the most brutal duel (technical death metal). - Metal_Treasure
These two 'angelic' thrash bands (Bay area) are so underrated and obscure that I guess most of the metalheads couldn't comment on this duel. But I added these bands - they are cool and some other people might be interested in this duel, too. - Metal_Treasure
Rammstain is overrated
Rush aren't metal, although they are a bit better. Not by much though. - IronSabbathPriest
Both are L.A based Metal bands.
