    Big shout out to everyone who threw down a bunch of nominations in the initial thread & helped create a pool of bands from which to choose from. We've got 64 of the most highly-regarded Thrash Metal bands, as chosen by the most vocal of the UM GMD crew, about to face one another in a straight knockout tournament.

    [​IMG]

    The following bands will be seeded as such:

    Metallica (1)
    Megadeth (2)
    Slayer (3)
    Kreator (4)
    Exodus (5)
    Testament (6)
    Overkill (7)
    Sodom (8)
    Dark Angel (9)
    Razor (10)
    Sepultura (11)
    Voivod (12)
    Heathen (13)
    Coroner (14)
    Anthrax (15)
    Tankard (16)

    I've taken a bit of liberty in devising this seeding system. Basically I've awarded the seeds based on a mixture of factors such as US album sales figures, historical significance/influence, & the amount of nominations each band received in the previous thread. The other 48 bands have been ranked in order of nominations received in the previous thread.

    Thus the tournament bracket appears as such...

    [​IMG]

    im loving this, but Destruction vs Megadeth in the first round?? A lot of other matchups that just shouldn't go down this early but whatever.

    How did a super obscure death/thrash band with one demo like Exhumer make the list?

    Leaving a few of them open for now. Megadeth vs Destruction is especially painful, the band with my most favorite songs vs the band with most most favorite riffs. Not a huge fan of Sacred Reich or Sabbat (UK); the impulse is to go for the latter, but I think I need to give Ignorance another listen to make sure I don't like it more than Dreamweaver.

    Do I have to vote on every matchup to participate? I don't know a lot of these bands.

    Will do the ones I’ve missed later. Most of these are ridiculously one sided. Should get more interesting as the rounds go on. Props for doing this, looks like a lot of work.

    Yeah I've got no problem with people leaving some of the fields blank if they aren't familiar with the bands in question or wish not to vote.

    Keep 'em coming lads! This is already proving to be an exciting little exercise. A fair few of these battles are closer than I would have imagined. Surely Sabbat can't eliminate the mighty Metallica in round one? :lol:

    Fixed. Epidemic of Violence is still the heaviest thrash album I've ever heard.

    It's a typo for Exumer, obviously.
