The best vocalist, drummers, guitarists and live artists are a joke. Where are Joe Satriani, Alexi Laiho, and Karl Sanders? Vocalists, Nergal for Behemoth, The guy who fronts the Rotted (cant think of his name, and Glenn Benton? Drummers, Where is George Kollias? not sure if I spelled his name right. For females in metal, most of those bands are not even metal. Hecate should be on there. Metallica sucks ass live, and where is GWAR on that live list? Best Underground? Not a single one of those bands are underground. Behemoth were on ozzfest. You don’t get much more mainstream than that for death metal.
