How could no one add kreator here? Pleasure to Kill album was the classic speed brutal speed metal!
I think their best speed metal songs are Shot to Hell, Most Dangerous Game. - Metal_Treasure
Exodus...especially the video..Riot act...how you get any faster"! ?
Currently they are one of the best bands (if not the best) putting out speed metal songs and also power metal songs. It's normal because speed metal is a higher version of power metal and can be described as heavier, faster or more technical power metal. Speed metal is mostly played by power metal bands because power metal and speed metal usually go hand in hand.
Helloween, Accept and Blind Guardian don’t play speed metal anymore but Primal Fear and Gamma Ray still do. However, I respect the first three bands for keeping this subgenre alive in the 80s. - Metal_Treasure
Seriously? They should be #1 because they pretty much are the inventors and kings of speed metal
Should be first for sure pluse there one of the big four
4 sure I agree the Anthrax brought a great sound,fast a with a style all their own love them a must hear to thrashly be speedy
Listen to Agent orange or to Tapping the Vein albums after it you know who is the fastest speed metal band songs like Agent Orange or Deadline prove it
Sodom is so hard and speedy. I love the music.
Pioneers of speed metal along with Accept. Known for such classics as Headbanging Man, Heavy Metal Breakdown, and Witch Hunt. Reformed in the 90s and became a great speed/power metal band. I saw them open for Blind Guardian and they were awesome.
On this entire list I see two true speed metal bands. Agent Steel and Exciter. The rest is Metal, Death Metal, Thrash Metal and Power Metal. Dragon force is not Speed Metal and do not deserve to be in the number one spot. They are nothing more than Power metal.
Listen to their first album : Skeptics Apocalypse. The best Speed Metal album!
Avenged Sevenfold?! This is a metalcore band, NOT a Speed metal band! __
Agent Steel is the only Speed Metal band in the list... Try listening Paradox, ADX and Violent Force.V 2 Comments
Not speed metal, but they are not bad.
Best power/speed/progressive mix from German metal scene
Beautiful songs, beautiful lyrics, beautiful instrumentals, beautiful voice. Their songs are filled with emotion like none other.
They are definitely one of, if not the, best rock bands in all time.
I definitely vote number 1. Speed rock combined with the most melodic rhythm.
Art of Life
Best Speed Metal Band Ever!
Paul Gilbert was, is and will forever be a Prodigy.
Technical Difficulties was a true landmark in his Musical Career.
Quite a difficult guitar solo to deliver.
And the speed, of course.
They ARE speed metal.
Try 'Get Fisted' - there's an awesome instrumental part, almost 2 minutes long.
They are a new band, formed in 2006 but getting lots of positive reviews. - Metal_Treasure
A great band, originated in Canada, started with Justin Hagberg vocals at the time, now the guitarist and harsh vocals, Shane Clark guitarist and Ash Pearson drummer. Later, a new member was introduced to the band, Cam Pipes was put as the vocals and Justin was moved to guitarist and harsh vocals. One of their best songs, Deadly Sinner from the album Advance and Vanquish, appeared in three games, Saints Row 2, Tony Hawk's Underground 2, and Brutal Legend.
Best speed metal band of all times. Period. Really, just watch their last concert at Wacken Opean Air and you will see that they are, indeed, the best of all times!
