    Yay, finally I get to create a thread! And its gonna be a long one so watch out..

    The thing is:
    In a couple of weeks my father celebrates a far to high birthday and thus takes another step towards the grave and while that is tragic enough it also puts me into the position of thinking of a present. Now, since I'll be leaving Germany to study in the nice flat Netherlands money is not abundant and so I'm forced to do soemthing creative. Which is cool cos it distracts me from doing something useful, like learning more dutch. Anyway, the point is I'll make a "metal through the ages " compilation. Since its a present he'll be forced to listen to it all and I'm happy for the opportunity to win him for metal's glory or scar him for the rest of his life. :rofl:
    So I'll design a nice dvd packaging even though I'm no graphics designer but shit, I figured out how to make newspaper articles with in Design, I'll manage DVD booklets.

    Most importantly however I'll need songs. Thats were your help comes in.

    Of course I can't cover all metal with 2-3 audio CDs but I'll certainly try to be comprehensive.. and so i turn to this board and its mighty metal wiseguys and gals.

    So far..

    Iron Man - Black Sabbath
    Children of The Grave - Black Sabbath
    Tyrant - Judas riest
    (Overkill - Motorhead)

    From Judas Priest I would choose "Breaking the Law".
    Number of the Beast yes, other Maiden track Aces High or The Trooper (!!). Girlschool is not that notable oder..?
    Motley Crue: Dr Feelgood.
    Entombed "Left Hand Path" can't miss out. And Bathory/Possessed/Hellhammer should be chronologically before Morbid Angel/Deicide/Death etc. Add a Darkthrone or Immortal track to the Black Metal bit.
    Pantera - Cowboys From Hell or Walk. Grunge, don't forget Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains, but then "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Black Hooe Sun" will suffice for grunge, perhaps add "Alive" (Pearl Jam). Actually Alive is a must really :)
    KoRn: Blind and some Slipknot..? Eyeless and/or [sic] are my suggestions.
    There ya go.

    From the 80's or death metal you gotta include Death's "Scream Bloody Gore"...

    @MadTinus
    Thanks!
    *takes notes*

    I chose girlschool because its ne of the few all-girl bands. variety.

    @griev0r
    I first included that but I thought Zombie Ritual was a cooler song. Maybe I'll toss a coin.

    70s: Stuff from Sabbath(preferably s/t song :) ), Pentagram(Early Demos), Priest(Stained Class), The Hand Of Doom(please do check out)....
    NWOBHM: Tygers Of Pan Tang(First album, I recommend Killers and Money), Satan - Court In The Act(Broken Treaties and Trial By Fire must be heard), Jaguar - Power Games(No Lies and Dutch Connection, First two Iron Maiden albums, Blitzkrieg....
    Thrash: Definitely first Slayer releases, Exodus - Bonded By Blood, Kreator - Endless Pain, Sodom - First lp and ep, Poison - demos and rehearsals (not the glam fag band).
    Metallica is not thrash...put that under speed metal, unless it's not too important...I'd include Living Death for speed too.
    Death Metal: Possessed, Necrovore, Incubus(demo), Death(Demos and scream bloody gore), Master, Morbid Angel, Nihilist...
    Grind: Repulsion, Napalm, Carcass...

    please skip groove, nu metal, glam, and that other crap...but I got carried away and maybe you can use some of the stuff I mentioned. :D

    So..

    I made it and gave it to him.

    Response was as expected. From Sabbath to Motorhead was well received but most death/thrash wasn't - except the bass lines in Scream Bloody Gore. Well, I tried, and now he likes Maiden. That counts for something.

    Well they don't exactly fit in anywhere except into Death/Doom (which I left out) and awesome, which isn't exactly a genre. ;)

    Also, there was so much Katatonia played when I still lived at home so chances are that my old dad knows how they sound :rofl:

    Under NU metal I would have to add first.

    The best of Nu- Metal. (according to me)

    Faith No More- Epic
    Rage Against The Machine - Bombtrack
    Korn - Whatever song that have already been mentioned.
    System Of A Down - Chop Suey

    then, Linkin Park etc..

    Yeah, there's so much missing..

    I would have loved to add more Anthrax, some Death/Doom, a bit of Prog and Power.. but then there would have been like 4 Cds and I had a time limit.

    Lost in the Proto-Metal haze along with Deep Purple. But anyway LZ wouldn't be necessary cos me old man has LPs by them.
