"Best" metal bands of all time?

This question is concerning the "best" metal bands of all time, different from your "favorite" bands of all time. It's still subjective of couse, but the criteria is different. Take into account things like influence, originality, technicality, consistency, progression of sound, etc...I thought this would be a fun lil thread to get everyone's opinions

1) Iron Maiden
2) Black Sabbath
3) Death
4) Mayhem
5) Dream Theater
6) Morbid Angel
7) Carcass
8) Opeth
9) Metallica (yes, Metallica. And theyd be alot higher if it wasnt for all that pussified crap theyre putting out nowadays)
10) Bathory

Honorable mention: Nile, Judas Priest, At The Gates, Emperor, Iced Earth

Whattya think?

Death and Carcass should be higher, why are Vader, Necrophagist, Decapitated, or Amon Amarth not on that list?!?

I think thats the highest Death CAN go. Maiden is generally recognized as metal's greatest band, and Sabbath basically invented metal as we know it today. I think alotta people would agree with those two.

Because Vader is pretty substandard, and Amon Amarth suck. Couldn't say about the other two.

I was blasting that from the living room while in the shower this morning. My neighbors must have really enjoyed that at 7AM, and I made sure to scream the lyrics that I could remember while ad libbing those I couldn't. Fun shit. It's a mix disk, so Hellbent for Leather comes next, and it only gets worse for my neighbors from there...

Excellent list - add Suffocation to it and you've pretty much covered each of the most influential bands in the history of metal.
