Ok what I would like to do is see who ATS thinks is the "Heaviest Metal Band Ever" by way of vote. There are many attributions that qualify a band
for being heavy, be it tone, speed, vocal style, etc. which should all be taken in to consideration when pondering this question. Please refrain from
voting for bands that are either A) clearly not Heavy or B) falsely identified as metal (i.e. say.....Limp Bizkit and the likes).
I will talley the votes and keep a record whenever the time deems fit. Also, I am only going to count one vote per person so please only list one
band (although I'm sure that some of you will insist on more).
So....... to start things off I have to say, in my opinion, the "Heaviest Band Ever" has got to be.................Napalm Death! Their sound
is just so pummeling, especially after what? 20 years is it? Even amidst such bands as Strapping Young Lad and Vital Remains, Napalm Death just has
that ultimately "Heavy" sound to them that, in my opinion, isn't topped ( and I am in no way saying that Napalm is better than either of the bands
I just mentioned, just heavier).
But YOUR opinion may differ and that's what I want to hear so..............
