These quarter finals aren't very close,are they?

With such big bands, you have expected tighter races

For sure. Especially Slough Feg vs. Iron Maiden. . .

Seriously, I had no idea who Slough Feg were until they were submitted for this challenge. I can't believe they've made it far. It's incredible.

But the semi-finals will be interesting. Hell, this whole thing has been fun.

I think there is an obvious winner here: Ronny James Dio. He has been involved in 3 of the final 8 bands.

Ronnie deserves a special honor when the polls are over.

It's funny, everyone that apes his style somehow ends up sounding generic. Can't turn lead to gold, it turns out.

An interesting idea, but I can't imagine Dio being led, much less fed lyrics to sing. He probably wasn't even interested in the job.

Consider how massively Black Sabbath shifted when they hired him. Every band that hired the guy ended up sounding something like the band Dio assembled for his solo band. No, I think if Iron Maiden had hired Dio, they'd have turned into Dio. The band, not the guy. And I like Iron Maiden better as Iron Maiden.

Judas Priest vs. Motorhead and Black Sabbath vs. Iron Maiden. Could anyone have possibly foreseen this?

I, for one, am shocked.

Hopefully they're left out of the contest if we do this again just to keep it interesting.

Not so interesting unless we also remove Metallica and Slayer.

Since it looks like we're headed for Priest vs. Maiden in the finals,how about a Motörhead vs. Sabbath poll to determine 3rd place?

It has a few advantages. The quarter/semi finals were so depressing/boring this time around because out of those 8 bands like 3 or 4 were not even active anymore/protagonists dead (Motörhead, anything with Dio involved) and the rest were objectively irrelevant outside of the 80s.
The focus would inevitably be on extreme Metal, which has been the face of Metal and has been representative of its sound for like 27 years now!

A lot of the bands this time around won contests for one simple reason only: They were active during the 80s.
Having only post 1990 bands would remove those bands.
A new contest would then probably get less votes as well, because I get the feeling a lot of people basically quit listening to Metal after 1989......

So on board with the post-1990 criteria for the next one.
