Let’s continue the biggest tournament in We Love Metal history. A tournament to name your favorite live metal band… The Lords Of The Stage!
With the staggering numbers of suggestions for the best live metal band we quickly realized a 16 team tournament would not be sufficient. Metal is known for its multiple genres and subgenres, so we had to start there. First you voted for the 8 genres known for their live performances. After a series of 8 band tournaments within those genres, each will have 2 teams move to the final bracket to name the Lords of the Stage.
Here is the winning brackets for the various genres so far:
The genres competing are Thrash, Power/Symphonic, NWOBHM, Hard Rock/Post Grunge, Traditional, Folk, Glam, and Death are the genres you feel need to face off.
Let’s get on with the battle: Kamelot vs Within Temptation.
FOUNDED: Kamelot came first in 1991, but Within Temptation came soon after in 1995
INSTRUMENTS: Both bands stick to the power metal formula of guitars, vocals, bass, drums, and keyboards. Although Within Temptation does mix clean vocals with growls.
FACTS: Kamelot has made it a common practice of using guest musicians on their albums. They have featured the likes of Jon Olivia, Simone Simons and Gus G to name a few. Within Temptation has always had a long debate amongst fans and reviewers on whether the band is symphonic or gothic. The band has weighed in on this saying they are a “symphonic rock band.”
OPINION: We have readers that are very loyal to both of these bands and it will come down to who can drum up the most business. This could be the closest battle in the bracket.
