Favorite Live Metal Band Tournament Van Halen vs Heidevolk

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”:

Thrash BracketFolk BracketTraditional BracketDeath Bracket — Hard Rock & Post Grunge Bracket  Glam/Hair Bracket  NWOBHM Bracket  Power/Symphonic Bracket

Now all the bands have been picked and the bracket is set:

LORDS OF THE STAGE FINAL BRACKET

Let’s get on with the battle: Van Halen (Traditional) vs Heidevolk (Folk)

FOUNDED: Heidevolk formed in 2002 as Folk Metal rose in prominence. Van Halen started the legacy in 1972.

INSTRUMENTS: Unlike other Folk bands, Heidevolk normally stays within the the basic instruments of metal; as does Van Halen.

FACTS: The name Heidevolk translates to “health folk.” Van Halen has had 4 lead singers including Eddie himself for a brief time.

OPINION: Heidevolk has been the dark horse of the entire tournament with their International fanclubs coming through when it counts. It will be a tall feat to take down Van Halen, but never say never. Numbers don’t lie.
