I like all the old stuff but I don't see a lot of love for the newer metal.
I'm a huge Deftones fan (nu metal I know)-Headup, 7 words, You've seen the Butcher, rocket skates, too many to name. Been a fan for 25 years.
Kataklysm-In Shadows and Dust
Ok, already found a new favorite . 16 Tons.Dave Meniketti is still going strong. Y&T really doesn’t sound like anybody else. If you like the classic era check out Unearthed vol 1 and 2. Lots of old demos Dave finished and released a few years ago. Covers all eras but mostly older stuff.
Second band I ever saw live was Y+T, sandwiched between Dokken and Twisted Sister(Stay Hungry tour) at the Orpheum in Boston. That was a great show.Dave Meniketti is still going strong.

That’s a great lineup, I would have liked to have seen that show. Dokken was actually the first band I ever saw live, opening for Dio on the Last in Line tour at the Oakland Coliseum arena. I was not ready for how loud it was when Dokken hit the stage and started playing Tooth and Nail.Second band I ever saw live was Y+T, sandwiched between Dokken and Twisted Sister(Stay Hungry tour) at the Orpheum in Boston. That was a great show.
4 horseman is a good call. I also like Megadeath's side of it.Pantera...makes them disappear
Megadeth...wake up dead
S.o.d........march of sod
Canibal corpse...make em suffer
Kataklysm.....taking the world by storm
Dethklok.....go into the water
Jinjer.....i speak astronomy
Way to many to list..lol...
While I'm a huge fan of the lad from Belfast (Gary Moore) I have to say that I grew up listening to a lot of George Lynch. Such an earthy spiritual player. Very underrated guitarist. So many but darn is that guy a great player.Second band I ever saw live was Y+T, sandwiched between Dokken and Twisted Sister(Stay Hungry tour) at the Orpheum in Boston. That was a great show.

I thought I was pretty intelligent on metal music, but thanks to these lists, I'm learning some new music to look up and listen to. I'm more hair metal but here is an attempt to make a list of ten. No particular order.

Note, my favorite band of all time is Rush but there's no way I can put just one song on the list. Also love me some Satriani.
Truthfully I haven't heard much "new" metal since the late '80's....I started listening to the Dead.
I'm sure I'd approve, but I have my old Maiden, Slayer and Metallica if I need to shake the house.
