    This will be a running thread updated once a month with new inductees.

    Basically everyone nominate a list of Artists and Bands which deserve to be in a Metal Hall of Fame. The top 5 most nominated in that month will be inducted.

    Try to mostly nominate full bands, unless there is one artist that clearly stands above the rest of the band, then nominate that artist or both.

    Let's keep it to maybe 20 nominations per person per month so this is somewhat manageable.

    Ultimate Metal Hall of Fame Class of February 2016 (Round 1 inductees):
    1) Black Sabbath (14 votes)
    2) Slayer (13 votes)
    3) Darkthrone (tie - 11 votes)
    3) Judas Priest (tie - 11 votes)
    5) Bathory (tie - 8 votes)
    5) Iron Maiden (tie - 8 votes)

    Round 2 coming soon!

    So if I read this right, I just name 20 bands I think deserve to be in the Metal hall of fame? 20 seems like a lot.

    So do we just name our favourite bands or are there criteria for selection, like more than fifteen years in the business, influence on other bands, promotion of metal music.... Etc?

    Just name the bands you think are Hall of Fame worthy. They won't get in unless others agree anyway
