With the announcement of Slayer planning to retire, it made me wonder… if there were to be a next “Big 4”, which artists would make it up? I can’t imagine it without A7X, but what are everyone else’s thoughts?

I think it is the big 4 of trash. I am not sure A7x qualified as trachten metal (they do have some trash elements). Ifor you mean general metal yes they should but than Iron Maiden should also be in the big 4 and i dont think they are

I did think about that, thrash as a solid genre has mostly come and gone. The elements are still there as you said, but to be strictly tied to the thrash metal genre is unnecessary at this point I think. So pretty much just general metal

I’m liking some of the names I’m seeing so far! Definitely Slipknot! What do you guys think of Lamb of God? Their riffs are pretty sick

I’m gonna go ahead and say that I really don’t think Three Days Grace belong ranked with any of those others you mentioned. Children of Bodom are definitely a great choice. And so is Disturbed. But Three Days Grace, while having some great hits, are just too generic for me. The guitar just isn’t exciting enough lol
