Monday Metal Madness – Opinion Poll #1
Posted by Reggie
Readers voted most for Amon Amarth’s cover of Aerials (System of a Down) for the last Monday Metal Madness on 12 Nov. Coal Chamber’s Shock the Monkey (Peter Gabriel) was a distant second and Megadeth rendition of Paranoid (Black Sabbath) scored zilch, nada, nothing. Thank you for voting and be sure to catch our Top 25 Favorite Cover Songs posts starting in January 2013.
Recently, your fellow administrators of A Metal State of Mind wrapped up our Top 100 Favorite Albums of All Time. It was fun to create and share with you all and our friends at The History of Metal on facebook. After all was said and done, I (plantera7) noticed the majority of the bands that made my list came from the United States. Perhaps that is because I am American, I am not really sure. I like metal from all over. There are plenty of other countries out there that put out great metal which brings me to this week’s poll. It’s basically an opinion piece not accompanied by any videos. Which country do you think is responsible for some of the “best” metal out there today? There is no method to the madness, just vote for how you feel. If you like, post a video from a band of said country as back up; could be worth some discussion. Thank you for playing. Within the poll I will list a few countries well-known for their metal, but feel free to write in…
