Poll: Which Bands are the Big 4 of Death Metal?


Desperate times call for desperate measures. And desperate measures most certainly include arguing about crap with absolutely no material consequences on the real world!

And so: it’s widely agreed upon that the “Big 4” of thrash are Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax, even by the band’s themselves. But what about other metal sub-genres?

To start, inspired by Joe Daly’s tweet: which bands comprise the Big 4 of death metal? We’ve included all the bands that folks chimed in with in response to Joe, but if we missed any please email [email protected] and we’ll get them added.

Due to limitations of our polling platform it is possible to select more than four, but please don’t! Choose only four then hit submit. Be a good sport.

Vote below, and explain your reasoning in the comments.
