heaven&hell Posted December 3, 2006 Report Share Posted December 3, 2006 Here's the 1984 Poll as promised. You can really see a difference in what was going on in the U.S. compared to the rest of the World. There was more Hair Metal in America and much more Traditional/Power Metal coming out of Europe. With the influence of the Thrash Metal scene started by Metallica and Slayer I'm sure the next couple of polls will have more bands of that style. This is the hardest poll for me by far. The U.S. bands make this very hard and picking between Maiden and Priest in 2nd part is tough also. U.S.: 1)Queensryche- The Warning 2)Dio- Last in Line 3)Metallica- Ride the Lightning 4)Fates Warning- Night on Brocken 5)Dokken- Tooth & Nail U.K/Europe/Canada: 1)Judas Priest- Defenders of the Faith 2)Iron Maiden- Powerslave 3)Accept- Balls to the Wall 4)Scorpions- Love at First Sting 5)Yngwie Malmsteen- Rising Force Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
