AxeMan sorry to copy off of your poll a bit but it's Battle Of The Metal Gods 2 album vs album. I based the pairing off order of release leaving out the live and best of albums...enjoy.

 

:rofl2: DUDE, you're TRYING to make my brain explode aren't you?? But OK, I'll play... looks like it's a close race for me in each of these pairs (though pitting Maiden's masterwork, POWERSLAVE, up against Priest's misfire TURBO seems almost unfair!)... here's how I picked'em

 

Pair #1: Number Of The Beast

Pair #2: Defenders of the Faith

Pair #3: Powerslave

Pair #4: Ram It Down

Pair #5: Painkiller (toughest choice here, since SEVENTH SON is one of my fave Maidens, but PAINKILLER is not only one of the best Priest albums, but one of the best METAL albums ever released, IMHO)

Pair #6: Jugulator (this choice will probably surprise some, but Jugulator is IMHO far superior to Maiden's NO PRAYER, which was Maiden's weakest album...till Blaze Bayley came along anyway)

 

Looks like Priest wins here too... and I didn't even have to flip any coins this time. :banana:

The first one was totally unfair, they're both fucking metal icons in my book, but I went with Priest by a hair. Everything else I went with Maiden.

I know that kind of sucks Powerslave vs Turbo but on the flip side it's Painkiller vs Seventh Son. I just went off of order of release I think for the most part is pretty even.

Maiden in all of them. Some good Priest discs there, but I much prefer their earlier stuff like 'Stained Class' 'Killing Machine' & 'British Steel'.

Man I thought for sure Painkiller would absolutely destroy Seventh Son...I guess not.

 

 

 

Painkiller is awesome, probably my fav or second fav Priest album, but Seventh Son is just incredible IMO from the songs to the musicianship to the outstanding artwork by Derek Riggs.

And the winners are :

1 - Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance (tough choice, I love both albums)

2 - Judas Priest - Defenders Of The Faith

3 - Iron Maiden - Powerslave (another tough choice)

4 - Judas Priest - Ram It Down (tough choice too)

5 - Judas Priest - Painkiller (Absolutely!)

6 - Iron Maiden - No Prayer For The Dying (tough choice, as by far both albums are IMO the weakest of the bands - excluding Iron Maiden's Bayley era)

I love both of these bands! :guitbannana:

 

I chose all Iron Maiden except for Priest's "Turbo", which has a special place in my memory and is a personal favorite, but each choice was pretty difficult (and pretty close).

 

However, if "Sad Wings of Destiny" was on this list, I would choose it over all contenders. :guitar:

Straight sweep for Judas Priest. I can't stand Iron Maiden. I want to run to the hills every time I hear 'em.

 

That's funny, because I used to say that exact same thing (about running to the hills). It took me a long time to warm to Bruce Dickinson's vocals. That warble is so pronounced that it can be really off-putting. But once I got used to it, I realized how much I love Niko's drumming and the double guitar attack, which is (usually) awesome. (Now if Steve Harris would just stop playing jazz riffs all over everything life would be great!) :guitbannana:

    • I'm with you and think it might be similar for me. I always loved H.E.A.T with Erik and was pretty much a Kenny basher as I wasn't a fan of those first 2 albums at all.  I had very low expectations and really didn't think I'd care much for new music with Kenny.  Anyways, I've slowly come around on Kenny as the singles were released and I'm enjoying the new album.  Yeah, it's not exciting me quite as much as the Gronwall albums did but Kenny sounds excellent to my ears and I'm having no issues with sound or production.  Just sounds like some good melodic hard rock to me.
    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun. 
    • Classless Act - Welcome to the Show Out of This World - Out of This World Within Temptation - The Unforgiving  The Black Sorrows - The Chosen Ones Horsehead - Onism i-TEN - Taking a Cold Look (Rock Candy remaster) Touch - Touch (Rock Candy remaster) Spys - Spys/Behind Enemy Lines (Renaissance double album reissue)  
    • Literally just added this one to the main site: https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=433&CDName=30 Coming In Hot&Letter=A

    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
