    Kind of a predictable outcome, even if I disagree with it. Metallica did almost everything they experimented with well, even if some of the mixing choices weren't great. Slayer is good but not something that resonates with me anywhere near as much.

    Yeah? I'm no massive DM fan or anything, but WPB was really one-dimensional, even for Slayer standards. And when it did get a little experimental (ie. "Playing with Dolls") it just wasn't that good.

    DM on the other hand had plenty of musicianship going on, most songs were longer than 6-7 minutes & there was a hell of a lot more diversity, the most we've heard on a Metallica album since AJFA.

    Yep, totally happy for people to continue using this thread to come to an agreement on what should, and what shouldn't, be included for a future Trad Metal battle.

    Asking people to name 64 bands might be a bit much. However, I think giving people the option to name up to 64 bands would be perfectly suitable. Agree the nomination process for this first battle was a bit haphazard. We were basically making it up on the fly.

    I'm not particularly crazy about World Painted Blood, but its relative brevity next to Death Magnetic is 100% a benefit, not a detriment.

    So you think DM is too long-winded for its own good?

    To put it lightly, yes. To put it honestly, it's a bloated piece of shit.

    Fair enough. It's not their best work, but definitely their best album since the Black Album.

    Forgot to vote. These are 2a and 2b for me when it comes to thrash (Megadeth is 1). So I honestly would have been fine with either one winning.
