Totally agree that all 3 should be inducted but "new wave of British heavy metal" might be a bit of a stretch . My first Maiden album is dated 1980 and I know they were around long before that.

Do stuff like Parkway Drive or August Burns Red count? I like metalcore, but that's probably it. For Today is my fav.

"New Wave of British Heavy Metal" was a term used to described the British metal bands that were gaining popularity in the late 70's and early 80's. Maiden, Priest, and Motorhead were all formed in the mid 70's, but it wasn't until the early 80's that they hit the big time. Other bands from around that time included Saxon, Angel Witch, Diamond Head, and Venom. These bands were all heavier than Zeppelin and Sabbath and could be seen as metals way of getting back at punk rock. Even metal veterans Black Sabbath adapted a somewhat heavier sound when Ronnie James Dio replaced Ozzy Osbourne. And it wasn't just Britain that was producing some very heavy bands from around that time. Germany had a band called Accept, which could be described as a precursor to the American thrash metal bands.

Thanks for the cut and paste history lesson but it was not required. My comment was only a (bad) little joke against the age of the bands and term "new", not denying the whole NWBHM era. As one who lived though it, I can say it was a great time.

hell yes i do, i love metal and i'm not just talking about only "metal" it would take too long to explain the "type" of metal the bands i like produce. Anyway i listen to stuff like Trivium, Metallica, Pantera, A7X old stuff not there generic Pos they produce now. Slipknot (of course) some Bullet For My Valentine, Born Of Osiris,Chelsea Grin,Suicide Silence ( old stuff) Carnifex the list could go on forever, if it's metal ( any kind) at some point i have listened to it.

Man, where do i start. I listen to all types of metal, Thrash, black metal, death metal, metalcore, classic stuff etc. I played in a metal band for years, we're on hiatus right now. My personal favorites would be Megadeth, Soilwork, Slipknot, Killswith Engage, The black dahlia murder, The stranded , Behemoth, A7X, to name just a few. As Akemui said, i listen to pretty much all metal. \m/

I've been listening to a lot of Doom Metal on Bandcamp lately. I'd tried getting into Metal before but I just don't like the vocals on Death Metal. I've been liking what I'm hearing from this subgenere though, some of it reminds me of Black Sabbath which I started listening to last summer.

I grew up on old school death metal, black metal, and thrash metal. More into trendy core stuff these days but I love it all really. Some power, folk, NWOBHM, doom metal.

Yarp. Huge metalhead. Man, it's really hard to choose favorites, because I listen to just about every sub-genre of metal & have been listening to metal since I was 7 (I'm 27 now). In the 90's I was all about Napalm Death, Bolt Thrower, Obituary, Suffocation, Gorguts, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Vital Remains etc (still love those bands). Around the turn of the millennium I got heavy into black metal. Not just the Norwegian bands (Emperor, Mayhem, Darkthrone, Immortal, Ulver, Enslaved blah blah. But again, I still love them all), but also bands like Bal Sagoth, Nokturnal Mortum, Opera IX, Lord Belial, Goatwhore, Dissection, Thy Serpent, Peste Noir, Bathory, Root, Master's Hammer, Torr & about 666 more, as well as the first wave bands & 80s extreme metal like Sodom, Kreator, Destruction, Hellhammer/Celtic Frost, Voivod, Bulldozer, Schizo, Necrodeath & Vulcano. Around that time I also got really into bands like Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, Demons & Wizards, Symphony X, the mighty King Diamond, Iron Maiden, Saxon, Judas Priest, Motorhead, Venom & such. Over the years I've just been digging deeper & expanding my collection. Lately I've been pretty into stuff like Septic Flesh, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Lykathea Aflame, Hollenthon & weird stuff like Virus & Dodheimsgard. I listen to it all though. I could talk metal for hours. So I better stop now.

Oh, also Maudlin of the Well / Kayo Dot. No one should go through life without knowing these folks. If one could even call an existence without Maudlin of the Well & Kayo Dot a "life". hardy-har-har. For real though, "Choirs Of The Eye" & "Leaving Your Body Map" are some game / life changers. Also, I have a pretty mean Devin Townsend collection. Though the newest thing I own of his is his "Ziltoid" album, so I haven't really been following him lately. But he had a streak of classic albums throughout the 90s - early 2000's.

Devin Townsend is amazing, I don't think there's anything he's done that I don't like!!

Yep, listen to just about anything... if you like symphonic, then go with Epica for sure...
For recent heavier stuff, I have The Modern Age Slavery, All Shall Perish (before they lost their singer), Hour of Pennance, and Ade on rotation now.

For really extreme, try Spawn of Possession's Incursio album... crazy stuff!


I have a lot nonextreme stuff in rotation too, Nevermore, Sanctuary, Testament, Elveitie, Iced Earth, the list goes on and on....
