Best British Metal Band?

  • Best British Metal Band?

    Which british metal band do you like most/think is best?

  • im guessing a lot of iron maidens are gonna pop up

  • I prefere a bit of priest to maden personally.

  • Hmm, I could name many great works of the UK, but my personal favourite at the moment is The Axis Of Perdition.

    They're a small-known Silent Hill oriented metal band, with traces of industrial, noise and ambience. Considering their relation to the Silent Hill franchise, The Axis of Perdition are known for darker works, some in which include references to a Red God.

    Not really known, or liked, by many, fans of the band are harder to find.

  • Iron Maiden are British, hence this thread doesn't even need to exist. =P

  • Biomechanical, Jesu, The Axis Of Perdition, Forefather. I can't really pick.
    Pantheist too, if they count.

    Black Sabbath.

  • Bal-Sagoth or The Meads of Asphodel - nothing like the British to come up with some truely unique bands now and again

  • Hmmmm, probably Forefather. However, Bolt Thrower are good also.

    Carcass for me (in terms of influence anyway)

  • im liking the carcss and bolt thrower, wasnt expecting anyone to put them

  • Code and My Dying Bride would be my personal picks.

    ...And before anyone says it, Code are British since Aort writes almost al the music

  • Maiden

    But I also enjoy Intense a lot. And Bolt Thrower.

    But on the other hand, you get shite like Birng Me the Horizon, who can fuck right off.Windir1189Heidra

  • so true

  • Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Venom, Bolt Thrower and Benediction just about do it for me with British Bands to love... and of course Pink Floyd but they arent metal.. but I dont care.

  • Anathema, My Dying Bride, Electric Wizard.

  • Solstice, Black Sabbath, Threshold and of course Iron Maiden!

    Iron Maiden

  • Iron Maiden have 2 win and 4 gd reason :p

  • I wouldn't say they're the best British metal band by any means, but I'm digging SSS at the moment.

    Are Onslaught British? If they are I'll stick them up there too.

    Celtic Frost.

    Heil metAl!
  • Carcass, Anaal Nathrakh, Maiden, Sabbath

    Religion is hate
    Religion is fear
    Religion is war
  • Iron Maiden. There is none higher.

    My favourite newer British metal bands are probably Akercocke and, if we're counting Code as British, then Code.

  • IceSymphony said it for me :)

    I'm going to be on my own with this, but it's probably going to have to be Skyclad for me. Maiden and Sabbat get an honourable mention, of course.
