Same! Those first three records are great. I might throw one on tonight, now that I am thinking about them. :m:

For me, both bands are irrelevant but I've found the odd song here and there to be enjoyable.

Moderately less interested in BLS, though I've seen both live. Volbeat strikes me as something that's typical side-project stuff.

Never heard Volbeat. The name just sounds like something I wouldn't like. Can't stand BLS.

No contest.

Shoulda done Bon Jovi vs. Triumph, that would've been impossible to choose.

in the beginning BLS could have gone in a different direction and been awesome but they didn't. Never heard Volbeat but I hate the name so they suck more :cheers:

Not a huge fan of BLS, but they BURY Volbeat.

Volbeat is a just-fine pop metal band from what I've heard; not something I'd ever be in the mood to listen to, but unobjectionable if they turned up in a movie soundtrack or something.

BLS had done everything they were going to do fifteen years ago - they've just insisted on putting out album after album after album since then anyway. And it's not like a rich and deep vein of nuance waiting to be exploited, it's really straightforward meathead rock - it's not like there isn't a place for that, but Zakk's put out so much of it it's long since felt like parody. I just imagine Zakk up there with a giant headdress on, one uni-groove song only distinguishable from the next because of the 20 minute guitar solo.

I dig BLS' old stuff. I am a fan of Volbeat.

Black Label Society gets my vote.

Volbeat by far. And I'm not too crazy about BLS either.

Volbeat knows how to write memorable songs and sell records. Of course elitist douchebags will hate on them. They are nothing but a great rock band and have been from day one. All of their records are great rock records. You have to wonder why elitist Polish black metal fans cant just stick to their music instead on continually trying to slag bands they hate...

Suckier? Really, my 10 year old would laugh at someone who said suckier.

Michael is a natural born song writer and he writes metal/rock/punk/country/pop songs.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OwWIClFWPs

on this demo he sings Barney Greenways parts and he growls as effectively as Barney does on the album version. ie. it's a metal song.

Wow... sixty two votes and an EXACT tie.

Personally, I think Volbeat is more annoying, whereas BLS is just extremely generic.

I think it's funny that polls like this bring out a ton of BBers, yet the same 20-25 people are always posting. Who the fuck are the rest of them?

:lol:

They're voters, not campaigners or commentators, I guess.

Has there ever been a poll this close? What a dubious distinction for both of these bands. It's 33-33 as I write this. :o
