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: Delain vs Helloween. One of these bands will be representing the genre in the final battle.
FOUNDED: The veterans Helloween founded in 1984. Delain formed in 2002.
INSTRUMENTS: Being credited as one of the founders of the genre means they helped dictate what was played. Keyboards, bass, drums, guitars, and soaring vocals. Delain keeps this formula as well.
FACTS: Helloween has won numerous polls in print and internet declaring them the greatest power metal band in history. Delain’s name comes from the fictional Kingdom in Stephen King’s book “The Eye of the Dragon.”
OPINION: People didn’t think it was fair when Delain had to go up against Iced Earth, but here they are. Helloween will be a bigger challenge obviously, but don’t count them out.
