    Sentenced! ... dark, melodic heavy metal from Finland.

    They're broken up and songwriter/lead guitarist Miika Tenkula passed away. R.I.P. bro.








    They even wrote a Fight Song for their home town hockey team Oulu Karpat!

    Alright... Maybe it wasn't "HEAVY" metal, but it's the "heaviest" that I listen to anymore...

    Only one... Tricky. I suspect that it has to go to one of my old hometown bands:

    FYI: Rob Halford played with a couple of guys from my neck of the woods in the band "Fight"! ...Brian Tilse and Jack "Jay Jay" Brown were from the Toledo, OH area and currently own a tattoo/piercing shop about a mile from my home.

    Fight was a good band - shame they didn't hit it big time. Mind you, despite the reunion taking 12 years, it was inevitable.

    I think I'll have to dig out my War of Words CD now!

    I really don't listen to that much heavy metal anymore, was the fave as a youngin tho. When I get in that mood I reach for the Metallica Justice and earlier.

    Heavy metal has become such a generic term, I can't think of many bands at more opposite ends of the spectrum than Slipknot and Led Zeppelin, but they are both considered to be 'heavy metal'. I'm quite selective, anything that sounds as if the vocalist has chronic laryngitis, and is vomiting into the microphone (Slipknot etc) I don't even consider to be music, let alone heavy rock music.

    My vote would have to be for the originals, and the best, without who I guess nobody who came after would have existed...

    Man... I have to honestly say that I don't have a favorite metal band. I have stuff by a variety of metal artists even going back to my younger, less musical days listening to death metal..

    Here's 5 metal albums that i still listen to with regularity.

    1. Anthrax - State of Euphoria
    2. Metallica - ...And Justice For All
    3. Slayer - Reign In Blood
    4. Celtic Frost - To Mega Therion
    5. Exodus - Fabulous Disaster.

    I was going to throw on Megadeth but the Megadeth cd I listen to most often is 199's "Risk" which is their most non metal but best song writing album. Doesn't really fit with "metal"

    Achillies Last Stand is a great ****ing song. 10 minutes worth of

    During band rehearsals when we would go over "Barracuda" by Heart we'd **** around and go in and out of Achillies Last Stand since Heart build Barracuda on the rhythm section parts of Achillies Last Stand
