Best band EVER?!?!? Come on!! Pantera are great. Awesome, I saw them twice live in Sydney, I would rate them in the top five bands i have ever seen. But the best band EVER?!? Thats pretty bold. What about the Beatles? or Led Zepplin, or the Doors, or Metallica?

Well Revolver is a "Metal" magazine so i dont think they picked many outside of that genre so it should be looked at it that way..........

Pantera were a great band but didn't have enough fore sight or perspective to puch the "metal" envelope further. They are great artists and musicians, but to be honest (and I am a well seasoned metal fan) they became two dimensional - they lost creativity. Their sound was too similar album to album. Metallica however, have pushed the frontiers of "metal" and remain untouched because of this. Stuff what Revolver Magazines' polls say, Metallica are the ones who sit at the top regardless of whether anyone likes it or not. I for one think Metallica are the greatest - can't get enough of their music, and because they have so much depth and variation it doesn't matter what mood I'm in - they always cater!

Fair enough. I think they should have been named "Best Metal Band Ever" though. and even then its a stretch to say they are better than Metallica. They are my second favourite Metal Band.
Cheers for not dissing me though andpointing out that Revolver was a Metal magazine politely. Also for not dissing the Beatles. who probably are "the best band ever"
Peace.

No reason? I thought the heading of that forum was "Kerry king lays into metallica". King said Metallica was a sinking ship. I think i have a right to call Slayer one trick pony's. I find it funny that metal fans argue so vehemently about which band reigns supreme

I agree Game, Pantera is not in the same class overall as Slayer or Metallica. And i think you have a right to defend your Metallica guys and think you are cool for staying loyal to them all these years!

Hey Game,

I checked out Strapping Young Lad on My Space and the song they have up on the site kicks ass! They have a very "old School" thrash sound kind of reminiscent of old Voivod, Kreator and Sacrifice- three of my fav all time bands.. thanks for turning me on to them.

Yeah, that looks like the best festival of the year. Which day are you going? Sunday with Maiden headlining would be my first choice! I heard Celtic Frost is back playing again and kicking ass that must of been a kick ass show.

Yeah sean it was a good kick ass gig and with DONNINGTON in recent years we usually go the whole weekend but this year we are a bit dissapointed with the headliners for a friday an saturday so we will probably just go for the sunday and METALLICA are going to play at the new wembley stadium a month later with some other unanounced bands thats the main one for us now

I reckon you got the bass player and the drummer right. I'm not sure how Jimi and dimebag would gel. I would like to see Dimebag and Frank Zappa. Frank could write some freakish solos for Dimebag to play like he did with Steve Vai. And then he can tell him to play them backwards.
Vocals HAS to be Jim Morrison.

Morrison?? you think he can sing metal though guess if you got him high enough haha not sure but yea that would be cool.k how about hendrix and randy rhodes and dimebag playing rythme? deadly i think. Neways Pantera kicks ass all i play on guitar is Pantera and Metallica hellll yeaaaahhhh
