    Yes, their lyrical content leaves a lot to be desired; but that is true of most death metal. Their music, however, is superb.

    Hi JLS,

    An acquaintance who works as a recording engineer had sent me a CD with Symphonic Metal without vocals or titles to the works nor specifying who played them. Some of it was interesting, but alas, my ear and my nerves just couldn't take the assault for very long.

    Cheers,

    Corno Dolce

    If I go by how many recordings of said band I own and listen to, my favorites would be
    Metallica
    Megadeth
    Mr. Bungle
    Sepultura
    Anthrax
    Pantera
    Testament
    King Diamond

    I'm sure there are others I have missed.
    But if I go by what I've been listening to the most lately--
    Pantera (again)
    Exodus
    Fear Factory
    Lamb of God

    i've been slowly working my way into the more extreme metal and death metal categories lately--not enough to have favorites yet.

    Metallica releases a new metal rock album in September 2008:

    Death Magnetic

    It has been almost five years since their latest album

    Ehm.... Favorite?
    Difficult, very difficult.....
    You might say I worship the dead in the form of Dimebag Darrel or Chuck Schuldiner.
    You might say I'm totally impressed with Devil driver...
    You might even say Meshuggah kicks ass!
    Sepultura... Edge of Sanity...
    Morbid Angel....
    Killswitch Engage (am I even allowed to call that metal?)...

    In the end....... I have no favorites, I can't even settle on a favorite genre of music

    A single favorite? Hmm.
    And do you mean heavy metal as a genre, or subgenre?

    there's so many great heavy metal bands, really. I steer clear of the heavyest, though, but have really discovered the genre of symphonic metal lately, and especially the band Epica. Also Silentium is good. As goes for 80's inspired metal (in my ears, at least), Dio is great. And Def Leppard etc., if that counts as metal?

    For me it would have to be Iron Maiden. They were pretty consistant from, "Number of the Beast" to "Powerslave" and had arguably the best guitar team the genre has ever seen. They also started out with a damn good drummer in Clive Burr and upon his departure, some may say upgraded with Nicko Mcbrain. Bruce Dickinson was the best thing to ever happen to that band, I dare mention.
