Since the Maiden polls keep running and since everyone still seems in the spirit for top 5 threads, I'll start the poll which has always seemed to generate the most buzz for polls on most metal forums. Who is superior out of the two greatest bands out of the Big 4, Metallica for their musicianship on RTL and MOP or Slayer for their body of work and pioneering extremity on a massive scale to all corners of the globe? Both bands are world renowned and worshiped by millions, so whose music do you think will last the longest in memory when both bands decide to call it a day?

Slayer, obviously. Steev will say Metallica and he will be wrong.

Ride The Lightning and Master Of Puppets stand head and shoulders above anything Slayer ever recorded, so I'm going with Metallica.

Megadeth. Anthrax were pretty close, mind.

Metallica's top five albums get 22 fists, Slayer's get 20.

Slayer's fourth best album? Doesn't come close, obviously. We've done this before:

Great poll. If it was 1991. Two bands that have, for all intents and purposes been creatively lame and in need of putting down for 20 years.

Metallica's best stuff > Slayer's best stuff
Slayer's shit stuff > Metallica's shit stuff
Death Magnetic > last Slayer album.

Both bands, 5 fists up to 1991. Both bands 2 fists since.

Voted Slayer. I can't stomach anything from Metallica after And Justice for All. Nothing.

Close to Metallica but nowhere near Slayer.

How about, for shits and giggles, ordering in preference....

Show No Mercy
Hell Awaits
Reign In Blood
South Of Heaven
Seasons In The Abyss
Kill 'Em All
Ride The Lightning
Master Of Puppets
...And Justice For All
Black Album

Five albums a piece makes for a decent stab at whose stuff comes out on top.

See above. Stick Metallica's s/t album at number 10 and you'll have the correct order.

Slayer were better for longer, but what Metallica produced in 5 years is up there with the best metal albums ever made so I've went for Metallica.

Metallica should have called it a day in about 89 and Slayer in 91 though, both been pedalling pish for decades.

This statement influences the poll greatly. Not just a 'which one do you like better' question.

Slayer.

I'm not explaining why.
It's just fact.

It is there at number ten.

I meant in my post a few posts up from yours:

6. Reign In Blood

9. Divine Intervention

Add Metallica's s/t to the end of that one, ditch Hell Awaits for the turd that it is, replace it with Divine Intervention and you've got the actual order of merit.
