What are your favorite traditional metal bands?
He does kick ass. Wait until he goes on tour with Slayer. That will be one hell of a show !!
This is a nearly impossible question to answer but a few come right to mind: Sword, Titanic, Riot, DP, Sab, Priest.
What is traditioal/heavy? I mean the tag is very relative since 1980 up to this day, so I'm gonna name NEW bands that defy some other tags like doom, power, black, death, prog, thrash.
Made Of Iron
Turbo (last albums)
Force Of Evil
Spirits Of The Dead (maybe too retro)
Enforcer (so-so, thewy dwell between speed and NWOBHM)
Accept, Saxon, Judas Priest, Dio, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden...
Primal Fear, Hammerfall, Sinner, Jag Panzer, Pretty Maids, Axel Rudi Pell, Leverage, Lions Share...
These lists could go on and on...
the bands that made up the foundations of "metal"(sab,DP,Zep) and fringe bands Budgie,Uriah Heep,Mahogany Rush and forgive me if i left anyone out
as well as Priest,Rainbow,UFO
FUCK! Lets have decades ??!! to list this stuff
1968-2002 Metal Rules
Good call on mohagony rush.
Judas Priest and Mercyful Fate.
Priest, Manilla Road, Satan, Omen Angel Witch
Such a random thread started by a dude called "koolsk8ter111"...go figure...
Sorry Bryant I just noticed I edited your post instead of quoting, can you put the original algain if you recall it?
I consider them more power metal than traditional. It's the problem with tags today, I should have put Crystal Viper, but they also are tending to sound more like standard Euro-power metal.
I didn't want to put the classic bands because we all know them by heart.
what does traditional mean?
It's a modern tag used to describe the sub-genre of heavy metal more akin to the sound of Judas Priest, Motorhead, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden (and the whole NWOBHM sometimes) specially towards the 80's.
It's a classification that defies that a band can be tag along power metal (like Hammerfall), doom (like Candlemass), thrash (like Coroner), prog (like Dream Theater), etc.
By my standards if you check bands like Metalucifer, Hammerheart, Wolf, White Wizzard more or less they are around that definition.
Give it 30 years, all the bands we listen to today will be "traditional / classic metal" and Sabbath/Purple will be "proto metal.
This was easy....the BIG three for me...the Holy Trinity of METAL!!
thanks. i'm not to picky on metal as long as i can understand the vocals
