But my main beef with Metallica is my perception that they get the credit that Iron Maiden should have had.

Earlier this year they released an album consisting of nothing but covers of 70s rock tunes. It is better than you might think.
Wed, 12 Sep 2007 15:53:31 +0000http://www.hornes.org/2007/09/iron-maiden/#comment-1401I recently picked up four more Queensryche albums (for years I only had Operation: Mindcrime) and have really enjoyed them. Some of the songs make me think: this is what Dokken should have been.
I had Tesla’s first album when it first came out (late 80’s?) on tape but haven’t heard it in years. Did they stick with it through the 90’s?
Wed, 12 Sep 2007 14:51:41 +0000http://www.hornes.org/2007/09/iron-maiden/#comment-1400I’d vote Queensryche as the overall best American metal band, with Metallica a close second. It’s almost embarrassing to admit this, but I did not “get” Metallica at first. I had Kill Em All in high school and didn’t like it. It wasn’t until Master of Puppets that I gained the proper appreciation of Metallica.
For more of pop metal or hard rock sound, I still play a lot of Tesla.

I hate to say, but Guns-n-Roses “Apetite for Destruction” has to be considered one of the greatest single American metal albums ever. The short lifespan of the band makes it diffidult to mention them with Metallica, but for an album or two, they were as metal as metal gets.
Mon, 10 Sep 2007 03:00:25 +0000http://www.hornes.org/2007/09/iron-maiden/#comment-1398I’m in agreement on both counts (Iron Maiden and Metallica). If you go more toward the prog rock side of metal, I think a few other bands deserve mention, particularly Dream Theater and maybe Savatage (both the early metal version of Savatage and the later metal show tunes version).
Mon, 10 Sep 2007 02:50:38 +0000http://www.hornes.org/2007/09/iron-maiden/#comment-1397That’s easy- Metallica. Hands down.
Pop medal would be Aerosmith, I suppose.
