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 news@metalsucks.net 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.
