Once a week, I try to make a pass and see what other media outlets are saying about Metal acts. The New Times blog of Broward-Palm Beach, Florida just posted their picks for the ten best Metal bands of all times. Some of the picks make sense, some are just out of whack. Here's the list:
1. Black Sabbath
3. Judas Priest
7. Iron Maiden
Iron Maiden should be at the top of the list, then Black Sabbath. I'd keep Judas Priest in the number three slot. Who doesn't belong? Mastodon, Death and maybe even Slayer.
I'll give the writer of the post credit: each band included on the list is true Metal...still, there's one big act missing: AC/DC. I have to admit astonishment at any "best of Metal list" that fails to include the mighty AC/DC.
What say you?
