The Top Ten

1 Metallica vs Megadeth

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

2 Iron Maiden vs Judas Priest
3 Helloween vs Blind Guardian

Blind Guardian.
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

4 Slayer vs Kreator
5 Children Of Bodom vs Amon Amarth
6 Blind Guardian vs Iced Earth

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

7 Ozzy Osbourne vs Dio

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

9 Death vs Opeth
10 Anthrax vs Overkill

Overkill (But I Like Anthrax Too) - christangrant

The Contenders

11 Helloween vs Gamma Ray
12 Annihilator vs Testament

I wanna see two of the finest lead guitar players in thrash - Alex Skolnick of Testament and Jeff Waters of Annihilator. - Metal_Treasure

13 Tool vs Dream Theater

Tool is too amazing to lose to anything that ain't considered the best

Tool is amazing. But nothing is close to Dream Theater. - zxm

14 Exodus vs Sepultura
15 Mayhem vs Burzum
16 Possessed vs Death

Battle To See Who Made The First Death Metal Album - christangrant

17 Nile vs Brain Drill

No doubt, this is gonna be the most brutal duel (technical death metal). - Metal_Treasure

18 Morbid Angel vs Death
19 Slayer vs Sepultura
20 Rush vs Dream Theater

Rush aren't metal, although they are a bit better. Not by much though. - IronSabbathPriest
