Thought I'd do a thread of our top 10 USPM bands. Here's mine:

1. Iced Earth
2. Jag Panzer
3. Echoes of Eternity
4. Twisted Tower Dire
5. Cage
6. Vicious Rumors
7. Sanctuary
8. Liege Lord
9. Steel Prophet
10. Skyliner

Curious to know what everyone else's is! Try to only include bands whose majority of work is considered as such or if they have 3 or more albums that can be considered as such(otherwise I'd probably have Chastain on mine).

Good thread idea, I think everyone who knows me will know what my number 1 is:

1. Helstar (The greatest band of all time)
2. Metal Church
3. Nevermore (I know they're listed as thrash here, but I've always seen them as more USPM)
4. Crimson Glory
5. Cage
6. Vicious Rumors
7. Brocas Helm
8. Liege Lord
9. Sanctuary
10. Meanstreak

Not ranked and there are more than ten here. Consider it a shortlist.

Sanctuary
Attacker
Iced Earth
Cauldron Born (very good one not mentioned yet)
Liege Lord (though it's mainly for Master Control)
Metal Church
Crimson Glory
Fates Warning (The Spectre Within/Awaken the Guardian period was USPM)
Hexx
Dark Design
Matthias Steele (the debut is an absolute gem, also not mentioned here yet)
Pharaoh

Forgot about those guys. There's so many awesome USPM bands that it's a bit hard to limit to just 10.

Yeah I know what you mean. It was tough not including bands like Helstar and Sacred Oath.
