Favorite Live Metal Band Tournament Nightwish vs Manowar

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:

Thrash BracketFolk BracketTraditional BracketDeath Bracket — Hard Rock & Post Grunge Bracket

The genres competing are Thrash, Power/Symphonic, NWOBHM, Hard Rock/Post GrungeTraditional, Folk, Glam, and Death are the genres you feel need to face off.

It’s time to find our Power & Symphonic bands. Here’s the bracket of combatants! Remember only two bands from this bracket can represent the genre in the final battle.

Let’s get on with the battle: Nightwish vs Manowar.

FOUNDED: Manowar was founded way back in 1980 with Nightwish coming along 16 years later.

INSTRUMENTS: Both bands stick to the power metal formula of guitars, vocals, bass, drums, and keyboards. Nightwish will break out the woodwind and Manowar counters with some classical guitar.

FACTS: Nightwish has dealt with two major vocal departures in Tarja Turunen and Anette Olzon. Both claim to have been dismissed with Nightwish being very combative on both issues. Manowar used to hold the record in the Guiness Book for the loudest show ever performed in 1984.

OPINION: Since Manowar helped found this genre I think it will be very difficult for Nightwish to pull this off. Comes down to the fans. Stranger things have happened in this tournament.
