    Metallica is considered to the the greatest Metal band of all time, which I agree with. Metallica and Pantera are tied as my favorites and in my opinion, they are the best.

    When looking at consistency, and longevity there are a few, of course some will say this band or that band doesn't belong, but too bad. When the genre was being defined these bands were included:

    Judas Priest

    Iron Maiden

    Saxon

    AC/DC

    Motorhead

    Guess which band above has released the most albums and remains most active.

    If you take exception of me including AC/DC, then you will also have to leave out Motorhead. Remember, Lemmy always insisted his was a rock-n-roll band.

    I would say either Black Sabbath or Deep purple. They lit the spark!

    MERCYFUL FATE.

    Close second, King Diamond.

    After that, I'd go Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden to round out the Top 5.

    After that, it'd be up for debate, but those five stand fast and firm.
