After a year of deciding who should be in the final bracket of the Lords of the Stage Tournament we have reached the “Sadistic 16.” Two bands from every genre you thought worthy to fight it out for the crown of favorite live heavy metal band. These 16 were picked by you and now it’s time to let the genres battle it out.
The Lords of the Stage started over a year ago. Our readers started chiming in right away and 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, you voted two bands to move to the final bracket to name the Lords of the Stage.
Here is the genre mini-brackets to decide the “Sadistic 16”:
Now all the bands have been picked and the bracket is set:
Let’s get on with the battle: Drowning Pool (Hard Rock) vs Revocation (Death).
FOUNDED: Drowning Pool formed in 1996. Revocation formed in 2000 under a different name.
INSTRUMENTS: Both bands stick to the basics of metal: bass, vocals, drums, and guitars.
FACTS: Revocation started with their original name Cryptic Warning in 2000. Drowning Pool is all original members with the exception of Dave Williams who passed away from heart failure.
OPINION: Death vs Hard Rock is going to be a hard one to call as both sets of fans don’t often see eye to eye and may vote for the genre over the bands. It is worth noting that several Drowning Pool fan groups dominated the polls in the hard rock battle.
