As a genre, Heavy Metal has somehow stood the test of time...What is your vote for the Best Heavy Metal Band of all time.
My own vote has to go to Judas Priest. One of the original Heavy Metal Bands, Judas Priest has pioneered the Heavy Metal sound of British
Heavy Metal. Rob Halford's flamboyant style and leather and studs certainly can be credited with establishing metalhead fashion. And the band has
survived the adversity of a major lawsuit that caused a two year recording hiatus.
When Rob Halford left Judas Priest, it seemed like the death knell had sounded for the band but the band continued under Ripper Owens while Rob
Halford went on to have two critically acclaimed albums/bands; Fight and Halford. Furthermore, Rob Halford went on to influence the new era of Metal
by guesting with Pantera and a handful of other groups.
Now that Rob Halford has reunited with the original Judas Priest, all is right with the Metal Universe again......so who are you voting for?
