    The ultimate metal band

    If you could convince your favorite musicians to form into one, awe inspiring band, who would be in it? You can have any metal/rock players from any band.

    Mine'd be:

    Bruce Dickenson of Iron Maiden - vocals

    John Petrucci of Dream Theater - guitar

    Mike Portney of Dream theater - drums

    Cliff Burton - bass

    p.s. They do not have to be alive

    Re: The ultimate metal band

    Vocals: Vratyas Vakyas (Falkenbach)
    Guitar 1: Joe Satriani
    Guitar 2: Tom Morello (Rage against the machine)
    Bass: Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse)
    Keyboard: Alex Staropoli (Rhapsody)
    Drums 1: Inferno (Behemoth)
    Drums 2 (Yeah, my dreamband needs two of them!): Frost (Satyricon)

    ...I guess their music would be strange.

    Vocals - Christian Älvestam (ex-Scar Symmetry)
    Guitar 1 - Jeff Loomis (Nevermore)
    Guitar 2 - Dave Mustaine (Megadeth)
    Bass - ChaotH (Unexpect)
    Drums - Yanic Bercier (ex-Quo Vadis)

    Would be... interesting even though the two guitarists do not really fit in with the rest of the line-up.

    yeee, you tried to convince us that Lars Ulrich is a good drummer, cmon... i love Metallica, and i don't mind Lars playing in Metallica, but when i see stuff saying that he's awesome and he's the best blablablabla i just facepalm, the guys is an average drummer, plz someone prove me wrong and show me Lars doing any kind of great drumming.

    btw, the answer to this ultimate metal band totally depends on what kind of metal

    Vocals - James Hetfield or Bruce Dickinson if James insisted on playing his guitar...
    Guitars - John Petrucci and Jeff Loomis
    Bass - John Myung
    Drums - Mike Portnoy

    Petrucci and Loomis on the same band would probably not work since it's too much EPICNESS together and the Universe might explode.

    While there are technically better drummers, Lars Ulrich works very well in that composition. And I think they could form a good band.

    Thanks for turning this into a thread about a band with a vocalist who hasn't been able to sing well for 20 years, a guitarist who is slightly above average, a drummer who can't keep time and managed to champion anti-filesharing along with... Actually, Cliff Burton was an amazing bass player.

    Note: Metallica was actually a good band for their first few albums.

    Re: The ultimate metal band

    I don't think my line up makes much sense but wth

    Singer1 - Phil Anselmo (he but the Thrash Metal in Pantera)
    Singer2 - Freddy Mercury (because he's the only guy that makes vocal solos)
    Guitar - Dimebag (and he made Pantera sound awesome)
    guitar2 - Brian May (a guitar player that can hold his own next to Freddy Mercury)
    guitar3 - Dave Mustaine (he formed a better Metallica (sry guys))
    Drummer - Mikkey Dee (awesum)
    bass - Arif Mirabdolbaghi (Protest the hero. Watch the sequoia throne video, he's awesome XD)
