I think James is a better vocalist than dave i also feel there isn't much differance in there guitar ability's.

I like both bands but i think Metallica are my fav band eva so there may be some bias but that is still my honest opinion.

Dave Mustaine, hands down, he's got a more agressive voice, he's kept a more consistent musical direction, he's been much more prolific than James/Metallica, and he's definitely a better guitar player, I mean, look at the solos he plays while James just sits back and lets Kirk do all the heavy lifting

plus, if I'm not mistaken Dave taught James quite a bit about guitar during his Metallica days. Also, I think that the parts that Dave has to play while singing are tougher than James', so there's one more thing were Dave pwns

Hetfield has skill, to create epic melodic solos like the ones in Nothing Else Matters and Master it just awesome and to be able to sing at the same time. Daves singing is weaker than James, so Metallica FTW.

without a doubt james hetfield. he is a crazy guitarist and sings at the same time, also unless im much mistaken he writes many of the solos himself though kirk plays them. on top of that ive heard he's almost as good as lars on the drums and he plays some bass(not alot at all but some) so right there he's got everyything dave has and more. not that i dont like dave mustain however. without a doubt james hetfield. he is a crazy guitarist and sings at the same time, also unless im much mistaken he writes many of the solos himself though kirk plays them. on top of that ive heard he's almost as good as lars on the drums and he plays some bass(not alot at all but some) so right there he's got everyything dave has and more. not that i dont like dave mustain however.

Totally... lol.

I think James is (or at least was) a better singer (professionally)
and Dave is a better guitar player.
fun fact: Dave was Metallica's original lead guitarist!
another fun fact: I know that everyone remember the fun fact I've mentioned...

I'm very thankful for James and Dave equally, because without Metallica and Megadeth in my life I would never become a better guitarist and actully my life would probably be different without my two favorite idols.

Dave, definitly. James is a good musician but Dave throws in different figurings to get different notes, ya know? Take Symphony of Destruction for a small example. the chorus, "Just like the pied(?) Piper, who led rats through the streets..."
The riff behind that has quite a bit of musicianship. Alot of Deth's songs do that. Hetfields a better singer, but when it comes to guitar, Dave takes the belt man.

MegaDave all the way. And to everyone whining about James being a better singer, this is thrash metal. Dave screams and snarls like a champion, all while playing guitar at hells pace wasted out of his mind, not leaving out the fact that he writes better songs. James went to shit after 86. Singing like a yokel redneck, playing boring E string chug riffs and writing songs about psuedo-intellectual corruption crap. MegaDave all the way.

The part about The Misfits being an influence is entirely irrelevant. In fact, if anything, you're helping the "sell out" conspiracy nuts, because that's strengthening the fact that they went the complete opposite direction of one of their biggest influences. Why would somebody do that?

To the topic at hand, vocal-wise, Dave is far superior. His voice takes getting used to, but he has more power and range than James ever did.

Guitar-wise, Dave wins again. Tornado of Souls absolutely destroys anything James has ever written. Those who say Dave cannot write a "crushing riff" need to remember that the main riff for Four Horsemen was, in fact, Dave's riff. Dave also adds much more technicality and musicianship to his playing than James.

Lyrics, I'd say they're about equal. Both had their moments, good and bad.

Overall, definitely Dave.

can write a song that has layers


I take it your understanding of "layers" is a "clean bit" then a "heavier bit". Obviously this is sickeningly stupid, but for the sake of argument, I'll mention Megadeth is a THRASH band so obviously clean interludes won't be drenched in every song. Megadeth has done this, however, in the form of Good Mourning/Black Friday, and they've done it well. Much better than any One/Fade To Crap song Metallica vomit up.

Kirk Hammett isn't a great lead guitarist.

...anyway. Dave Mustaine is an awesome musician, Megadeth is a testament to his ability. James on the other hand, is one of the best rhythm guitarists in thrash metal. All you have to do to believe that is listen through the album Ride The Lightning. He's still got it, too. Death Magnetic was pretty much shit, but listen to the song All Nightmare Long. Yes. That is Riffage. (Too bad Endgame was better)

When it comes to vocal duties, I think Dave has a pretty shitty voice. No... i know he has a very shitty voice, but honestly, James' "singing" voice can induce explosive diarrhea. I much more prefer James' earlier thrash vocals, before he decided he's ditching that on the Black Album. Those vocals, from Kill 'em All through ...And Justice For All kicks the living shit out of Mustaine's nasal whining.

PS: The argument of which band is better is the oldest in the book, and has NO ANSWER. Both bands have more than one fucking god-awful shitty-ass album as well as incredible, legendary classics. In the end, though, when it comes to THRASH, Megadeth takes the motherfuckin' cake!! (I still like Cliff-era Metallica best)

I would say that Mustaine is arguably the greatest guitarist in metal. He can sing and play insanely complex riffs at the same time, and he can solo like a beast when he needs to. I also think his voice is much more "metal"- sounding, and it is perfectly suited for the music he plays. So yeah, Megadave is the better of the two in my opinion, no question about it.

"Who's a better musician?"

I would say James is a better musician, he knows how to play more instruments. He is also a very versatile << plays country, rock, metal, blues etc. Furthermore, he is a very talented songwriter and a great singer.
