As great as Dethklok is, they aren't the heaviest.
Still though, heavy is relative to the listener.

I'm going with Dying Fetus, even though I can't really listen to more than two minutes worth.

Heavy is in the ear of the beholder. Huh.


Fist. Early 80's headcases. Still listen to it, still love it, great stuff for the day, especially "Turn the Hell on".

So far I have seen:

2 - Sabbath
2 - Slayer
2 - Dying Fetus

All other bands mentioned seem to only have one vote so I won't list them at this time. Great bands for the most part, by the way.

This isn't about what you like. I didn't say I liked Dying Fetus all that much, but I did say they are very heavy.
For a more tasteful approach to heavy, try Between the Buried and Me.
Or for a more 70s influenced prog death metal band, try Opeth.

Possibilities

The Godz
Voivod
Witchfinder General

A word about Black Sabbath:
I have worn out the vinyl on their works. But I have to say, their playing is often somewhat lacking. Ozzy's vocals were sometimes a minus. Not to mention Ronnie J.D. The dude from DP did a pretty good job with the vocals, but the lyrics, while certainly smoother than ozzies, still were wide of the mark.

Ozzy, man; c'mon. "fairies wear boots, yeah ya gotta believe me?" C'mon man. That's just gay. (not that there's anything wrong with that.)

The best albums are the ones where the guitar is up front, and the vocals are backing the guitar work: Volume 4 is probably the best, followed by Technical Ecstasy or Master of reality.

AC/DC, no one's mentioned them. They had some metal moments (which mostly died with Bonn Scott.)

Heck, even ZZ TOP crosses over into metal on many occasions. The first tempo change in "La Grange" is metal, regardless of speed." Same with the riffs on "Just Got Paid today." Now, I'll be the first to admit that songs like "Groovy Little Hippie Pad" instantly disqualify them. . .

Maybe Judas Priest. Stuff like "United," "Nother Thing Coming," "Livin' after midnight" or "Electric Eye" are pretty much timeless.

Yeah. I vote priest.

Into The Fire by Deep Purple was probably the heaviest song at its time (1970). From the album In Rock. I failed to find the original version on YouTube, but here's a version from 2006 (live) instead. I challenge you to find a heavier song from 1970 or earlier...

Btw, regarding AC/DC and Bon Scott...
I'll give a vote to them as well. From 1978:

Heaviest band....I'd robably say Napalm Death or Pantera, especially on Great Southern Trendkill. Also, The Melvins are slow but really heavy...kinda like Black Sabbath, only wierder.

first post by the way

The heaviest band that i really enjoy is Vader. The heaviest band that i listen to is i think kirisun or something. Still enjoyable though.

heavy is a sound and attitude, not necessarily "speed", imho

1) Black Sabbath
2) Deep Purple
3) Metallica
4) some Zeppelin

Nile, they have low, complex, machine fast riffs and gutteral vocals. Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, new Behemoth, or Bolt Thrower might give them a run but I stick with Nile as the heaviest.

All your votes will beg for mercy! Allow me to introduce the mighty MESHUGGAH:

Meshuggah - New Millenium Cyanide Christ (Live)



(Below - Studio Version)



Long live European metal!!!

(Edit - They use 8 string guitars for God's sake!
)

Well, it depends on what one defines as "heavy".

For example, if we were on about heavy being defined by tone, I would say Rammstein (live) is pretty damn heavy.

My idea of "heavy" is, a sound created by an instrument(s) that make your balls feel like they're about to shatter. I.E, Meshuggah.

Mercyful Fate.

Nuff said.

Mercyful Fate is hands down one of my all time favorite bands. The lyrics that King wrote back then are, in my opinion, far more evil than any of the stuff all the black metlers, like say, Dark Funeral or Gorgoroth write.

They just reek of blasphemy. I love em.
