    Hmm, point taken about Mercyful Fate, what would you choose?

    Bathory ended up being one of my final cuts, but along with Celtic Frost I choose Venom and Hellhammer in favor. Possessed, although mindful of them, was never put on the list because they were, to be honest, never that good and the Tampa Florida scene is kinda my specialty. I feel Kreator and Coroner both cover that thrash to almost death hybrid well enough and were both technically proficient. Your thoughts?
    i can agree with cutting venom and hellhammer, and i can deal with cutting bathory, but dood celtic frost... dood!

    Goal: Present the most complete Metal only setlist the Ultimate Setlist forum, no - the internet, has ever seen.
    You didn't succeed then , its not complete if it excludes things (Melodic death metal nowhere to be found , Metalcore nowhere to be found , and so forth)

    This game would probably fail in sales , its a list only an extreme metalhead who makes metal their whole life could like at 1st glance , everyone else would have to do some serious youtubing and then probably mostly all decide they don't want it

    Well Mercyful Fate is my all-time favorite band so it's hard for me to choose. Lol. It would definitely have to be something either from their debut EP or their first two LPs obviously. "Evil" would be a safe bet I would think.

    As for Bathory and Possessed, fair enough. It is your list after all. One thing though that needs to be stressed is that Chuck Schuldiner did in fact alter his sound when he heard "Seven Churches" and thus modern death metal came to be. As for Bathory, wow very important band. Bathory pretty much single-handedly invented viking metal and were one of a few of the major influences on black metal. Well, there were bands like Heavy Load and such who did viking metal before Bathory, but Bathory is definitely the main influence on viking metal.

    I don't want to make it seem like I disliked your list, I like it very much. I just wanted to point out three bands that I felt deserved to be on it and the reasoning behind my statement.

    Cheers!

    Well heres my reasoning. Venom's Black Metal has a lot of significance and fits into 1982 perfect. I originally had a track from Celtic Frost's Morbid Tales. Unfortunately its a 1984 album and 1984 is crowded on my setlist. I went the easy route and went earlier to Hellhammer. Eurynomos has this kind of mythic aura with it in the history of Black Metal.

    Now I could drop Hellhammer in favor of Celtic Frost, but I feel it necessary to free up 1984 a bit. Jag Panzer and Twisted Sister probably wouldnt go anywhere and I suppose I could change the Maiden track. Exciter and WASP could be changed as well, but those would be tough choices to move around.

    He wanted to make a good setlist devoid of -core garbage. And the Carcass song was most definately Melodeath.

    You dont count as a metalhead Snitsky ;p Besides, In Flames Carcass and Soilwork not melodic death enough for you? Also, metalcore belongs in Hardcore Band. Theres also only 16 death/black metal songs, I dont know where the only extreme metalhead comment comes from.

    I didn't see the Carcass song then

    But still , he has Slipknot in the freakin list and is going for "Most complete metal list on the internet in history" so I'm just saying he techncially failed at that

    Did I even say otherwise? I looked at this list and I just think "WOW , if not even I know half the **** in this list how the **** are all the completely not into metal at all people gonna like this list?"

    Like I said something like "People who make metal their whole life"

    I'm into metal a bit , but not as much as people like you and the people that like this list

    I'm just saying , if not even I (Someone fairly into metal) doesn't really even know what alot of this stuff is , then the average RB player would know even less of it and therefore not buy it

    that is quite the bind... looks like you need to add DLC for your list then, onslaught. ;)

    They wont be. Im shooting for metalheads, not trying to convert anyone.

    Also, I fealt compelled to include a little bit of numetal. Even I can appreciate its importance.

    Bathory are awesome! They were way ahead of their time in sound. Proto-Black Metal at its finest.

    Just a thought, but you would do well to delve a little deeper into metal's history. There is a literal goldmine of music that you could discover.

    what about including some metalhead-approved metalcore? perhaps something like converge, starkweather, or early dillinger escape plan?

    Metal is the genre of music with the most quality in terms of great bands in my opinion. I told myself I'd keep listening to metal primarily until I got bored or burned out. Many years later and I'm still really only listening to metal besides the occasional progressive rock band.

    An obvious weakness in my knowledge base (hardcore in general). I kinda dropped most crossover stuff (including folk metal, although progressive metal stays strong) early on as it was feeling forced to me. Metalcore (true metalcore) would not be out of the question at all and definately has its place, even in those most metal of setlists. I would need guided to the good stuff, though.

    the bands i listed above would be great starting points, particularly converge and DEP since they both have a pretty strong following... i just really love starkweather and think many openminded metalheads would as well, plus i've seen them attributed with being one of the earliest practitioners of the genre and i suppose that's kinda important.

    a few other good choices could be botch and coalesce or if you're looking for more modern stuff there's cursed and trap them.

    But thats basically true for almost any genre of rock/metal

    As far as I'm concerned I'm as into metal as I think I really could be

    I have explored metal alot and I just don't really like anything from many of the subgenres

    My metal niches are : Melodic death metal , Metalcore (Those 2 mostly) and then to a lesser extent Deathcore , Nu metal , Power metal , Heavy metal , and Metallica

    (Not gonna write "Thrash" because tbh I hate "REAL" thrash metal but Metallica is just called that for some reason when they don't REALLY sound like thats their genre)

    All other kinds of metal I don't seem to enjoy a single thing from

    On a quest to work Bathory in here. I had 3 out 4 of the big thrash. Might as well try to get 3 out 4 of the original extreme metal bands.

    Edit: Having 2006 with 2 power metal songs is kinda redudant. Changed the Hammerfall one.

    really, really good setlist Onslaught. There's no real faults other than Agalloch being labelled doom metal (which is just a pet-peeve of mine) I was expecting a bit more old school death metal (going by your taste in music) but I understand its about balance.

    Roger that. Progressive Blackened Folk Doom for Agalloch?

    Very good list, I was about to start ranting how Pantera isn't Thrash,but I read your second post and all is well. Very good job.

    EDIT: Is there any way Symphony X could be added in? Perhaps replacing another prog metal band?

    High Tide (proto prog metal)
    Queensryche
    Ayreon
    Dream Theater
    Opeth (fusion prog metal)
    Fates Warning
    Epica

    Thats what I have representing prog metal. What track would be your #1 pick and what year is it? I originally had Orphaned Land, Symphony X, and Pain of Salvation off the top of my head but I couldnt make up my mind. and I didnt want to exceed 84 tracks to keep it challenging and lean.

    This is my thoughts I love your Prog., Doom, NWOBHM, and early metal choices

    It needs Saxon though and Sleep

    You forgot Uriah Heep as Proto-Prog. Metal as well

    As for the recs:
    Pain Of Salvation - Welcome To Entropia
    Symphony X - Domination

    Set The World On Fire(The Lie Of Lies) would probably be my first choice. It is from 2007.

    It would boil down to Epica vs Symphony X, because they are both sitting on that late 2000's prog spot. They are both in the symphonic vain of progressive metal. Symphony X has a little bit more gothic in it and X is a bit powerprog.

    Either one would work perfectly and equally deserve a spot, but aethestics you know. Ive listened to both a couple times and its a tough decision to make. Im rather curious what others have to say.

    sweet list. There's only a handful of songs i don't care much for. I'd rather get something from Disarmonia Mundi over Soilwork.

    Oh yeah, dont get me started on Soilwork. Thats about as close as I get to throwing a bone to mallcore. Necrophagist and Obituary are holding down the 2000s for deathmetal and Carcass and (old, good) In Flames represent melodeath.

    Do you think some modification to that would be fruitful?
