The "Top 5 Bands" Thread

List your top 5 bands... Any style.

Here're mine in no particular order...

Cynic
Death
Fredrik Thordendal's Special Defects
Necrophagist
Psycroptic

Not easy is it?

Behemoth, Winds, Porcupine Tree, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum and Martyr (From Canada) get a special mention too. That's kinda cheating though eh?

Very tough to cut it down to only 5 bands, and this probably changes a tad but:

Motorhead
Ne Obliviscaris
Be'lakor
sleepmakeswaves
Iced Earth

It seems like the Ne Obliviscaris & Be'lakor guys have quite a following. It'd be great if we could organise a show with them at some point.

Definitely, that'd be a killer live lineup. I'm really looking forward to both of those bands hitting the live scene again because they both put on top shows.
