Who would be in your all-star metal band?

Post by Paulo » Fri Aug 12, 2005 2:01 pm

If you could make up your own all-stars band from members of other bands, who would be in it? Post who would be playing what, and which bands they are originally from. So for example mine would be:

Drums: Dan Zimmerman (Gamma Ray)
Guitars: Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom)
Guitars: Herman Li (Dragonforce)
Keyboards: Jens Johanson (Stratovarius)
Bass: Dirk Schlachter (Gamma Ray)
Vocals: Tobias Sammet (Edguy)

I would include Jari Mäenpää to my all-star band, but otherwise it would be more or less Stratovarius.

there are many ways to make an all star metal band, here is one of mine

drums : Jörg Michael ( ???? XD ) or Ingo Schwichtenberg ( Helloween, RIP, this is a tribute to you Ingo )

vocals : Andi Deris ( Helloween ) or Kotipelto ( Strato! )

guitar 1 : Timo Tolkki ( Stratovarius ) or Lucca Turilli ( Rhapsody )

guitar 2 : Kai Hansen ( Gamma Ray ) or Michael Weikath ( Helloween )

look this 2 bassists!

bass 1 : Markus Grosskopf ( Helloween )

bass 2 : Patrice Gvers ( Rhapsody )

keyboards : Jens Johansson ( Stratovarius ) or Alex Staropoli ( Rhapsody )

this is more likely for a power melodic metal band

ok lets see

drums: either Jorg or Mike portnoy (so what, he rules even if he plays with DT :twisted: )
bass: hmm, dont really have a favorite bass player, maybe Jari (loved him in stratofortress, destiny, i walk to my own song, million light years away...)
singer: Female ; tarja from nightwish (i like SOME of their songs, but she is fantastic when vocalizing)
male: either TK or Bruce Dickinson (i love his stance and voice)
keys: JENS, DUH!!!!!! or Alex Starpoli (i really like his classical arrangements)
guitar player; now this is where it gets interesting, Tolkki is my favorite guitar player so he is a must, but the second guitar player is either Van Halen or Steve Vai (completely different styles i know! that is what makes it interesting, imagine if they jammed together.....)

Morme-gil, there are no gayboards!!!! Keyboards absolutely RULEEEEAAAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!! :D

MetalAngel: Aquiles Priester best drummer ever? His drum solo on Angra's dvd was not that great.... Jorg's solo on Visions of Europe and Anders' solo on one of HammerFall's dvd were FAR better. Still, Aquiles is not bad at all :), but the hidden treasure is Carlos Cantatore!

Well, Mike Terrana is also not so bad as a drummer. I saw his solo on a video with his former band, before he played with Rage. Amazing. But, the fact that he bate himself on his head, while he was playing double bass drum, was strange and ridiculous... :lol:

To be honest, I found it really hard to pick a bassist. I can't think of one that really stands out. Dirk's got comedy value though. He'd make the inlay sleeves really funny with his comedy poses.

It was a real toss-up between Jorg or Dan for drums. And it was equally close between TK and Tobias. I'll probably change my mind later on.

Actually, you can see HammerFall doing that in one of their many DVDs (they play a cover of Judas Priest's "Breaking the Law"). I don't remember all of the switches, but I do remember that Joacim Cans played the guitar and Oscar Dronjak sang (horrible!!!!!!!! :lol: ).
