Please excuse my lack of variety and options. If you can't see it here, a comment would be much appreciated and perhaps I can do another poll.

I don't care for any of the bands listed. On the modern prog side of metal, I would choose. Ayreon and Riverside. Both are fabulous and have a great back catalogue. Going back to the 1970s, I would choose bands like Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and maybe Humble Pie.

I'm not really a fan of heavy metal, but I do like Black Sabbath. The only other heavy metal bands that I like are Deep Purple and 1973-1974 King Crimson (although they were more prog than metal).

Not a genre Iíve ever listened to much - so on the wholly inadequate basis of what I quite liked on Top of the Pops decades ago, itís Judas Priest.

Sorry, I just have to do it:

This is the perfect chance to hint at my heavy metal mixtape I made a few years ago. It includes a couple of the bands listed. I'm not huge into the genre but making this compilation was most fun and seemingly I must have done something right because it got overwhelming feedback. Have fun smiley

I voted other - I'd go for Barnsley boys, TNWOBHM veterans SAXON who status wise were on par with Iron Maiden at one stage. They're still making good music and are big draw on the European rock festival circuit - great live band - I have always enjoyed Biff's vocals and Paul Quinns guitar.
The biographic DVD 'Saxon - Heavy Metal Thunder The Movie' is worth a watch with tales of how they went on tour with Motorhead but preferred a post gig tea frenzy to drugs or alcohol!

Lead is probably the most heaviest I know but then again Gold is most popular amongst fans of good taste!...

Had to go with other, as where the hell is Nightwish?!! Ayreon would also top all these, and probably Devin Townsend Project.

Of the ones listed, it would be Metallica, then Maiden....

My brother went to an Ace Frehley concert last night in Oregon. I guess Kiss would be considered somewhat of a metal band. He said the gig was good, but too loud. The opener wad 80s hair glam band Enuff Z'Nuff.

I guess the opening poster was more after the classic metal bands. grin I used to be a fan of Nightwish but they lost me. Oceanborn is still my favourite album.

There are so many bands out there, and it depends on how you define 'heavy metal'. For instance, Led Zeppelin used to be called heavy metal in some quarters back in the early seventies, mainly because they were often loud, though in reality they were more mystical/folk with heavy guitars! Purple were another band sometimes called metal, when in fact they were really a heavy rock band (and at one time the loudest band in the world!) I would probably go for Opeth, though they are more often called a death metal band, though they're not so heavy these days! Always liked early Motorhead too, had their first five albums.
Of those on your list I'd probably choose Maiden, thought I don't mind the occasional Judas Priest song. The odd Megadeth song is ok too, but not Metallica who I think are very pedestrian and rather over-rated. Never been into Anthrax or Slayer either. Sabbath I can take or leave.

From this list, Black Sabbath is the only band I like ó and I'm a big fan, particularly of the Ozzy-era albums.

But as others mentioned, it is hard to define what is actually heavy metal because genres have multiple sub-categories and then cross-over into other areas.

Opeth is probably the heaviest band I listen to, and I think they're categorized as prog-metal.
