Overall I'd say Metallica.

Not my favourite, although I love their first 4, but they have the name, more iconic songs than any other Metal band, bigger than any other. They hit the mainstream with AJFA, which was still a very if not their heaviest album.

Maiden is 2nd for the same reasons.

Fav band is probably Slayer, but fav album is Sepultura's Arise.
Thrash and melodic death are my fav genres, spiced with some NWOBHM and whatever Maiden, Iced Earth(imo they're too thrashy for the power metal label) and Opeth are.

You're just a f*cking idiot.
That's quite the variety...surprised someone so open minded would post such an ignorant thing. I also listen to a great variety of music, hell I even listen to non-English speaking music, like Spanish flamenco or Arabic music, for a few examples. I also play guitar and bass and find your comment downright ignorant.

On to the subject of this thread, metal music is a very broad term, unless you just want to only include classic metal bands that created the sound and not the offshoot genres.

My dirty dozen personal list in no order...

Black Sabbath
Dio
Megadeth
Tool
Judas Priest
Rage Against the Machine
System of a Down
Metallica
Iron Maiden
Alice In Chains
AC/DC
Soundgarden

Don't really get the metal vibes from ACDC, AIC or especially Soundgarden. Great bands nonetheless.

These geniuses also have a couple of songs that could be credited as having influenced the classic metal sound like Revolution and Helter Skelter.

Yeah I kind of agree with your statement about AC/DC, especially the Bon Scott era BUT Back In Black and For Those About To Rock have what I consider, very metal sounding songs, but in general AC/DC is a hard rock band. Soundgarden were heavily influenced by Black Sabbath, Kim Thayil has said so many times in interviews, Jerry Cantrell was a metalhead growing up as well.

Badmotorfinger is a Metal album without question, but I would still lump Soundgarden into the Grunge or Hard Rock category considering what the rest of their catalog sounds like. The cool thing about Soundgarden is that you hear the Sabbath and Zeppelin influences in their early work, but they eventually became too radio friendly as most bands do.

Metal is such a diverse genre, you got sludge-stoner doom metal which is really really simple all the way to hyper technical progressive metal where the musicianship is literally on par with any guitar player, drummer, bassist, etc. to have ever played. A lot of true virtuosos gravitate towards classical, jazz, and metal of all things, and there is a reason why.

You just can't lump it all into one field. Iron Maiden sounds nothing like GnR who sounds nothing like Meshuggah who sounds nothing like pantera, etc.

But I do. And that's how I feel. I'm very well aware of the technical proficiency of some metal acts (especially prog metal). I can't play most of it. I have all the respect in the world for their talent at their craft.

It's just the (vast) majority of metal is, to me, unlistenable garbage. I simply don't like it. I find it is like the musical equivalent of wall text. The only metal bands I have enjoyed are ones like Pantera and Lamb of God (only very sparingly) who are groove-oriented.

Just because I am a musician and have diverse taste doesn't mean I like everything. Metal is annoying.

Actually I enjoy listening to music even more when I'm unable to play it myself. I respect the skill. The metal genre probably has the most skilled musicians on earth outside of jazz and classical. It's totally possible to admire the craftsmanship while disliking the final product.

I do enjoy Black Sabbath. When you listen to today's metal music, it's hard to consider them metal by today's standards. They are the originals, but like... if a band came out now and sounded exactly like Sabbath, they would be considered rock.
