42DeftonesDeftones are an American alternative metal band from Sacramento, California. The band, which was founded in 1988, consists of Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter, Frank Delgado, Abe Cunningham and Sergio Vega.
43NevermoreNevermore is an American progressive metal band from Seattle, Washington. Formed in 1991, they are known to incorporate elements from various styles such as power metal, modern hard rock, classic heavy metal and technical thrash metal.

Jeff's guitar playing is just pure ridiculousness, Warrel's baritone vocals kick ass, Van's drumming is godly and Jim is a Bass player (but a damn good one). In terms of composition and creativity, I think they became one of the best in the late 90's.

If anything, these guys had to be one of the top ten bands. Back in the day, their style was something that no band after could imitate. Just something that only they knew how to do best. Alongside At The Gates and Dark Tranquillity, these guys helped put Gothenburg on the map. Nowadays, they're one of the most notable metal bands in the world because just like in the 90's, In Flames continues to move forward, mature and create something new with each album, not caring about what hecklers and closed-minded metal elitists have to say. They're definitely a band worth checking out. New or old, they continue to grow and develop into something new.
