    For me it would have to be Deep Purple - but the period in which Ian Gillan was lead vocalist rather than David Coverdale. I find that many of these Heavy metal bands are inter-related though.

    I have more albums by Gillan than any other heavy band. He had a succession of superb band members and produced several superb albums, although Double Trouble was appallingly produced. I might have to stop off at Deep Purple central though.

    Up until around 18 months ago, I would have said that I didn't like any metal at all – heavy or otherwise. And since I'm in my forties, I probably didn't expect that to change. But a little experimentation in the interveining period has introduced me to a few things.

    I don't mind Motorhead, but I actively like Marilyn Manson (also that might have something to do with his ability – and intention – to wind certain groups up ) and Rammstein. The latter gets classed as 'industrial' in iTunes, but I'm sure people will excuse me for mentioning them here: it's almost metal meets Wagner – there's a great operatic quality about what they do and their videos are frequently very good indeed, and really quite subversive (see Sonne, which is really quite kinky).

    If you like experimental music, Sybarite, here's some good experimental metal:

    Sleepytime Gorilla Museum (not really metal, but loud and heavy)
    Unexpect
    Maudlin of the Well
    "Did anybody see this snowman
    Stand there with the lord
    With proper get up, hang his hat
    Only you're feeling sleepy-eyed"

    -Damo Suzuki

    Necrophagist = One who eats dead bodies
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
