Speaking of Scandinavia, I can't believe I forgot to mention Týr.

They are good, but man alive is role-playing gay.

OK how about crazy train?

This baby I am pregnant with right now will be the first to escape being played Crazy train in utero since my husband isn't here to do it. (And my brother killed my PC so it is lost until I buy the mp3 again)

Don't care much for metal, despite my earlier comments on this thread, but I do like "Crazy Train".  Maybe it's the fact that, IMO, Randy Rhoads (guitar) often steals the show from Ozzy on this song.  To my knowledge, Randy's considered one of the greatest and most influential heavy metal guitarists ever, even years after his tragic death at 25.

My favourite metal song changes on a daily basis but here's one pretty good:

Vreid - I Krig: Folkefiendar

Let us be specific in regards to what is up for announcement:

LARPing (Live Action Role-Play) is most certainly gay.  Table-top is not.  Wink

I'm gonna limit myself to one song per band...

Believer - The Brave
Betrayal - Renouncement
Black Sabbath - War Pigs
Broderick Gray - Dawn of the Dragon
Colourfast - Time Keeps Passing By
Corrosion of Conformity - Shelter
Lazarus AD - Thou Shall Not Fear
Manowar - Hail and Kill
Mastodon - The Czar
Megadeth - Five Magics
Metal Church - In Harms Way
Metallica - Call of Ktulu
Opeth - Wreath
Pantera - (Cover of) Planet Caravan
Scorpions - Coast to Coast
Six Feet Deep - Broken Tree
Slayer - Seasons in the Abyss
Tourniquet - Psychosurgery
Underoath - Casting Such a Thin Shadow

Some of my selections aren't what I'd normally consider metal, but they're close enough.

EDIT--Forgot one! -- Diamond Head - The Prince

One of the problems Christian metal groups tend to have is that, while some of them are technically skilled, they have a lyrical dissonance with their music. Good metal lyrics should be epic, brutal, and triumphant. Given that the Scriptures are full of brutality and triumph, it's strange that Christian bands generally don't get this right. Here are a few that do:

Pretty much any song that made it's way to the Brutal Legend soundtrack.  Even the hair metal songs on there were epic.

Sorry for the quality of the album cover, but this is the only uploaded video with decent audio quality. Everything else is really tinny or muffled. Extol owns Christian metal without dispute. Progressive death/black from Norway. Too bad it's all over.
