2. You're wrong. I've heard every Metallica album (except live ones) and about half of Megadeth's albums (2 or 3 being their old ones).
3. It's funny that you took that post serious. :)

That's your idea of "singing fantastically"? Geez. Listen to a real singer. Tom Araya wasn't a singer either, he was a punk-style shouter, but he had far more power and timbre to his voice than Dave Mustaine's wheezy whine.

I always loved Tom Araya's voice. One of my favorite metal vocalists.

Wheezy whine? why? cause he can actually hit notes? He has more of a deathly snarl. No one else sings like him. He set himself apart from the pack and brought forth a fresh and unique way of singing to metal.

Tom Araya's voice is annoying after the first two songs. Plus Dave's lyrics were much better. How many times can you write about Satan and Hell? Gets old after while.

How many times can you write about distrust of the government? Gets old after a while.

And if Dave Mustaine is your idea of a singer hitting notes...you've obviously never heard real singing. Phil Anselmo from Pantera -- now there's a singer who can snarl and scream while retaining pitch. Dave Mustaine isn't even close. As a singer he's in the league of Britney Spears -- nasal with breathing problems.

Sometimes singers are more stylists than a pure singing voice. I think Dave is in that group. I like his voice it's cool and unique. Queensryche and Priest have pure singers who can sing anything - operatic. But i like both types of singers.

I like Dave Mustaines vocals but, I also like Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth, Lemmy Kilmister, Bon Scott and Tom Araya's vocals as well. So what do I know?

I think if you knew anything about me you would know that I am kind of a Pantera fan boy so I would agree that he is a much better singer. Phil is also not playing maniacally technical riffs while doing so. In which case, most of his attention is on his vocals. Dave has said himself that he never wanted to be a singer but had no choice. Megadeth sings about much more than distrust of government.

Most of their early material was based on things like Macabre, killing and visions of death and suicide in a ghastly view ( Skull Beneath the Skin, My Last Words, Good Mourning/Black Friday). Rust in Peace also was a pretty sweet concept album that touched a thousand subjects ( see Take No Prisoners, Five Magics,Tornado of Souls, Lucretia). Dave can paint a picture very nicely in his songwriting while Tom just sings about the same old crap over and over. Don't get me wrong I respect Slayer for what they contributed to the scene, but besides the albums Hell Awaits and Reign in Blood I was never a huge fan.

Now if you want to talk vocalists: Robert Plant, Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford, Tim Ripper Owens, Ronnie James Dio, Phil Lynott, Maynard James Keenan, Russ Anderson, and early Testament( Chuck Billy). Those are some vocalists I consider better than Phil, Dave, or Tom.

Megadeth wins:
*Better (and faster!) solos
*Awesome drummer (compared to Lars)
*First three albums smoke any of Metallica's newer stuff

No kidding though. You'll never see Dave doing some half Azzed BS album with Lou Reed.

"First three albums smoke any of Metallica's newer stuff"

Wouldn't anyone win a contest using that basis?

Let me see...

First three Korn albums smoke Metallica's newer stuff.

...yep anyone can win that contest

Surge - you're right...I've got Korn's first two (somewhere) and zero by later Metallica. Wow - if you can't win against Korn, who can you beat?

Whenever I read 'Korn', why do I ALWAYS think about that nasty 70's hustler cartoon where they are recycling corn chunks out of terds on a conveyor belt???? Why don't I think about real corn?

From what I understand that is somewhat in line with how the band name originated...so it would make sense you picture that....I remember my 7th grade perception hearing that story and just being like - damn....that is disgusting...

Well, if it was meant as "sarcasm"....you did a terrible job.

You're kidding, right? Have you even listened to Slayer's lyrics and know the true meaning behind them? There is very little of Satan and hell. Most of their songs are about the cruelty of man and the degradation of society. They are songs meant to bring enlightenment to people.

"They are songs meant to bring enlightenment to people."

And to pay homage to serial killers.

Dance with the dead in my dreams (Hello? Hello Mr Gein?)
Listen to their hollowed screams (Mr Gein?)
The dead have taken my soul (Lemme out of here Mr Gein)
Temptation's lost all control (Mr Gein? I don't wanna play anymore Mr Gein)
(Dance with the dead in my dreams (Mr Gein, it's not any fun anymore,)
Listen to their hollowed screams (I don't want to play anymore Mr Gein)
The dead have taken my soul (Mr Gein? Lemme out of here Mr Gein
Temptation's lost all control) (Lemme out, LEMMMMEEE OOUUUUUUTTT!!)

All this time, I've been missing the subtle Slayer philosophy.

Trust me my friend. I have been listening to Slayer since I was at least 15 and I think I know all of their lyrics and riffs like the back of my hand. While I have a ton of respect for their contribution to modern metal, I feel their lyrics are repetitive and boring after awhile. I will still spin Hell Awaits and Reign in Blood as those are masterpieces in my opinion , but anything after Seasons is pretty much garbage.

For the record I always loved the lyrics to Epidemic. If they wrote more songs like that I'd be more into them.

I like 4 albums from Metallica and 5 from Megadeth but I like 7 from Slayer so I'll let you guess who I like the most!
