    If Iron Maiden is heavy metal, so are Metallica. Yeah, they turned hard rock, but there was a time when were metal, heavy metal. They would even shove it up your ass if you so desired.

    Iron Maiden of course for me, but a real close second is Manilla Road.

    Re: Who was the best heavy metal band of the 80's?

    Ha ha! Man after my own heart.

    I'd have to say Maiden since I wasn't into what Priest was doing even in the early 80s too much and at least Maiden had two great albums in that decade.
