I saw them open for Dio circa 1985--they were very good!
Its this band for me--I've never quite understood why they weren't even bigger than they managed to be.
I love Maiden but I'm going to have to say Black Sabbath.
Deep Sabbath and Judas Maiden.
I don't think anyone disputes Black Sabbath's contributions to the metal world, but in terms of popularity, I would still have to go with Iron Maiden. Despiste both bands going through some serious line-up changes and outputting some iffy albums, I think Sabbath hit their heyday back in the early-80's and are pretty much known and revered for everything leading up and including the RJD-era. IM on the other hand are enjoying their biggest resurgence of popularity since their massive World Slavery Tour.
couldn't agree more
Metallica really crossed over for better or worse.
i think one of those bands never made a love ballad?....nuff said....
It will almost certainly be disputed that these guys fall into the metal category, but that's the category they were put in (and closest to) when they came out in the late '80s. As they went on, they carved out and either created or inspired a number of new genera, and never ever got the commercial success that their talent and critical acclaim say they merited ...
And last (but close to my heart, professionally) and certainly not least:
These are some of their more metallic offerings from the couple of albums they put out before 1990.
Criminally underrated, in my very humble (but quite correct) opinion!
And just to complete the picture, it's not really metal, but it's one of the greatest songs ever conceived:
Good call Killer Punk Band that changed to a Metal sound and continue to Kick some A
Well there was Charlotte the Harlot
I ain’t arguing with you bro,
but it’s Judas Priest for me
Priest got more commercial but they still had the heaviness with the catchy songs
And they had THE METAL GOD- Rob Halford!
When a lot of bands decline in qualit, Priest did the opposite. Every time they come out with a new album they seem to out do the last.
Painkiller saved 1990 along with Rust in Peace and Persistence of Time.
Maiden and Metallica both disappointed with their releases that year.
oh yeah the most under-appreciated but the most influential and greatest of all time \m/\m/
Good call! Love me some MSG!
I can't think of a band that I'd rather see do an original lineup tour than queensryche.
I can’t really vouch for anything after it, but the first WASP album was really good
The tunes were catchy,Blackie had a sick voice, and back in 1983 they were definitely considered Metal
