The Top Ten

1
Avenged Sevenfold
avenged sevenfold its the best band of melodic heavy metal, synyster gates solos are always perfectly amazing, lyrics fits perfectly, I like shads voice and the band style its so cool, I only miss the rev, one of the greatest drum player of ever, so amazing live... R.I.P the rev
Avenged Sevenfold is without a doubt the best modern metal band. I mean imagine being in their position, losing your drummer who was not only one of the best drummers but also your best friend. And they still play just as good as ever. People don't always give Avenged Sevenfold the credit they deserve and I think it's about time they get it. R.I.P The Rev
What is wrong?
How did Bullet for my valentine get before a7x? Bullet For My Valentine is good, but they are no where near A7x.
[Newest]My favourite band of all time, so many great songs

2Bullet For My Valentine
Most people take metalcore or any metal genre as screaming noisy guitar crap genre but when the will listen to bullet for my valentine.
They will definitely know that they are the TRUE METAL BAND and they just don't make noise but mesmerize you in their musician play.
Truly the best.

All those who hate this band are total idiots and don't know what music is.
Bullet For My Valentine is from frustrations... Dissatisfaction... & much more... Who voted for A7x? This band sings of reality between love & hate... This is a band who can piss off others on stage... I don't know what these people means about metal... But surely they just don't get Bullet For My Valentine from heart... Bullet For My Valentine doesn't write in the name of lyrics.. They are the reality.. Crushing riffs.. Harmonized lead lines.. Excellent drum patterns... Bullet For My Valentine calls for pain... This a heavy metal band... Anyone having doubt about this can go and check their knowledge about different subdivisions of metal genre... Bullet For My Valentine IS THE BEST...
This band makes all such types of songs which are of true meanings and also has real feelings. Give extra votes to the top band. This is a band which makes songs from heart. None of its songs are meaningless. We Can take the example of Heart burst into fire.
[Newest]Bullet For My Valentine is just PERFECT! THE BEST!

3Slipknot
Unique, powerful and brutal metal band that always deliver and embrace there fans as brothers. Maggot 4 life!
Avenged Sevenfold is a good rock band, but they aren't metal. There's no comparison. Corey has an incredible singing voice, and the craziest death growl ever! Stay Sic all maggots! RIP Paul Gray
Avenged are good, but have become overrated since The Rev died. Joey Jordison is a much better drummer.
[Newest]Best best best... Love you corey taylor

4Disturbed
With David Draiman on vocals, Dan Donegan on guitar, Mike Wengren on Drums and John Moyer on bass, this band proves to be one of the most influential bands of all time. With their very unique style of music and covers such as "Shout 2000" and "Land of Confusion" still haven't been topped. Even though they are on a temporary hiatus since 2010, they still prove to be one of the greatest metal bands of all time. They started off with the name of brawl, but in 1996 changed to Disturbed. David Draiman formed a band called Device in 2012 with Will Hunt (drummer of Evanescene), Virus (guitarist of Dope), and Geno Lenardo (guitarist of filter) and have written "Haze" featuring M. Shadows (singer of Avenged Sevenfold), "Vilify" and "You think you know". They have produced 5 studio albums and one compilation album, 4 of the albums were #1 on the billboard 100 and 3 received platinum.
Indestructable... Enough said. Plus all the other bands don't even compete with the quality and power behind the disturbed music!
They may not be the best of all time. I will say however, Draiman is the best singerout of all these people on the list, he is and will be my favorite and is top ten of all time. Dan Donegan has speed and great rifts, and soul. His Solos are badass, there is a typical argument about speed, well perfect insanity has the speed. He has the skill and will be top 50 of all time. (He may not be the heaviest) John Moyer, well you can't really hear him, but in times when he uses his skill to help perfect a song, you can probably hear moyerat times. (The Animal) Mike Wengren, Speed percussive style, and a fluent metal sound. Even though this may be an opinion, Dammit, these guys are top 50 of all time, and #1 for MODERN DAY METAL!
[Newest]Honestly one more of the craziest but Meaningful bands disguised lyrics

5Lamb Of God
Lamb of god is the absolute epitome of metal. They are the most metal metal band in history, picking up where pantera left off. They're so heavy they make death metal sound like rock, and rock sound like nursery rhymes. I love A7x, but I'd put them on the top of the rock list. I'd put Bullet For My Valentine on top of the steaming pile list where it belongs
lamb of god by far. of this list I would have to say mastodon, then opeth. then I guess korn because this list is messed up in the head. disturbed and dragonforce? thats just embarrassing. "metalheads" who like dragonforce are cheating themselves because dragonforce speeds up their music. they have no talent. LAMB OF GOD WINNNN

crunchyjuice

Come on, all the ones that come before LOG in that list aren't worth a half of them
[Newest]Meshuggah, Tool, Mastodon, Lamb of God, Gojira and Nile are truly great modern metal bands. They've managed to carve out a niche for themselves. Vote for the leaders people, not the followers.

6System of a Down
System of a Down is a band, that when you actually hear it, you will know why they are the best Musicians, best singers, and best band of all time! Slipknot and A7X are very good, but they aren't System of a Down. System of a Down, Tool, RATM, and Slipknot are the only bands whose messages are real! Go METAL FOREVER!
With Serj Tankian on vocals, Daron Malakian on guitar and occasional vocals, Shavo Odadjian as bass guitarist and backing vocals, and John Dolmayan on drums is a well known band. Serj Tankian has a very recognizable voice and the band has a very diverse form of music seen in "Chop Suey! " and "Toxicity". This band continues to go strong. They have only made 5 studio albums, but a large amount of singles.
This band is amazing, it's the most unique band I have ever listened to, every song they make is different from the other so you never get bored of them and everything is perfect in this band, the vocals, the guitar, drums, bass, and their songs are amazing and has true meaning, they're just perfect, VOTE FOR System of a Down!
[Newest]They just have their own, unique interpretation of heavy! And they are so technically skilled, their ensemble is fantastic! Love, love, love

7Mastodon
Skilful and broad in terms of music styling, Mastodon mix an uncompromising metal sound with a sweet and technical progressiveness. Their ability to switch from heavy riffs to intricate guitar and drum work never ceases to amaze me. No album sounds like the previous, they epitomise the meaning of progression. Brann Dailor's drumming style and fills are easily one of the best I have ever heard from any drummer and Mastodon are unrivalled in being the best metal band to rise to fame in the new millennium. The fourteen bands that precede them are not even in the same league (Avenged and LOG are cool though).
Best band going at the moment. They are extremely good musicians that really compliment each other. There is no such thing as a simple mastodon song which I is what I really like about them, each song is complicated and isn't just a generic verse and chorus through out. Crack the skye is my favorite album just because some of the songs are so filled with riffs and epic drumming, their early stuff I also dig but but I think the prog root they went down with on crack the skye is the best. Long live mastodon!
They are doing things right now that no other metal band has done since Tool. They are by far the most talented group of musicians on the circuit. They put on an amazing show and they compliment each other on stage with progressive riffs and incredible percussions. Look no further if you are looking for the best band out there right now.
[Newest]Best of this list.

8Killswitch Engage
Love killswitch great guitar riffs My Curse is an awesome song.
The best band in the world in my opinion. With utterly brilliant and unique drumming and guitarist skills they blow minds of many metalers around the world to this day.
This band... You can say about many of METAL BANDS that they have awesome guitars and awesome drums - WHICH KILLSWITCH ENGAGE has (one of the best in my humble opinion). But while many prefer different guitar tunning, playing and riffing THERE's ONE THING THAT KILLSWITCH HAS AND OTHER METAL BANDS don't HAVE. VOICE OF HOWARDS JONES (lead singer) AND ADAM DUTKEWITZ (lead guitarist).
LiStEn To ThE SoNg BREAK THE SILENCE. Listen To It AS WHOLE.
[Newest]I agree on this one!

9All That Remains
Nothing to say, if you have not heard them, then try them. No need to say anything else due to the fact that when you've heard them you will know that they are good. Well that is if you like metal and want to be able to hear the lyrics.
Great music. Vocals, drums, guitars, they got it all. Lyrics are pretty badass
This band is amazing anyone that thinks otherwise go get your ears checked
[Newest]Should be in the top 5 at least.

10Trivium
Trivium has never made bad albums. They are amazing and their live performances are stronger than ever. I expect them to reach the top in years to come for sure. They deserve to be up there without a doubt!
GUYS Trivium is on of the best modern metal bands ever!
And definitely better than bullet for my valentine
Awesome band... Must listen!

The Contenders

11Metallica
The reason why they are down here is because they are not classified as a "Modern" band. Their first album came out in 83. They are worthy of this list but don't necessarily belong on it.
They are what is known as metal gods. They brought metal back to Earth, and without them, this argument would be invalid. And their new stuff has gone back to their original style, and nothing is going to stop them
Not really good for their modern stuff, but their old stuff (80s) is just amazing.
[Newest]Metallica is the best

12Linkin Park
Nu - Metal Gods...
Mike shinoda and chester's vocals are awesome...
Awesome song beginning riffs...
The best musics I have ever listened in this category. They can not be compared with others because Linkin Park have not root in the ground.
I listen to Hybrid Theory and Meteora at least 3 times a day
[Newest]Is the best band

13Pop Evil
This band is just EPIC! Their new album, Onyx RUULLEES! Welcome To Reality, Trenches, Fly Away, and more... What's not to like.

If you have never heard of this band, look up Last Man Standing and Trenches. You will not regret it. This band is going to become a hit - I know it.
TRENCHES IS AMAZING! Last Man Standing and Boss's Daughter are also great songs and Pop Evil is by the best modern metal band, followed by Slipknot and Avenged Sevenfold.
This band is awesome! Some of their songs are softer, but they also have some harder rocking songs, like Trenches.
[Newest]This helped my brother form breaking of the lambs his band so I love it to

14As I Lay Dying
Why is metallica modern metal band? So as megadeath. This band has the best screamer/growler, insane drummer and a nice swift guitarist. Also the bassist owns because his clean vocal just makes me piss on my pants
This is crap why is this on this list

15Opeth
Opeth is the best band till date... absolutely fabulous... lyrics, vocals, names of songs, musical quality and detail, innovation, album art, themes, depth, overall impression-everything is the best... those who haven't heard there songs don't know what they're missing... every one of their songs are in perfect sync with their themes... a truly mature band consisting of true maestros.
Opeth is a really talented band and thus SHOULD NOT BE IN A LIST WHERE LINKIN PARK IS ( and above Opeth!? ). Opeth is just the opposite of linkin park; Opeth is a band of really talented instrumentalists and a Great Composer (Akerfeldt) whereas linkin park has no one who plays musical instruments. Metal should be played with instruments, NOT BY DJ's.
I can't believe Opeth is not in the top ten. They are easily one of the most talented metal bands out there right now and these kids that say avenged sevenfold has the greatest guitarist and that Corey Taylor is a godly vocalist could really learn something by listening to this band. Mikael Adkerfeldt is a musical genius and his growl is the most demonic thing that I've ever heard. To top it all off, he has a beautiful singing voice as well.

16Gojira
A peerless level of soul and atmosphere mixed with sheer aggression and brutality. Gojira ' rules
Very unique! Gojira are amazing in their ability to make simple, melodic, and heavy music.

17Breaking Benjamin
Whats wrong! This is an amazing band deserves to be in top 10, the melody, with metal in the chorus and touching lyrics the best combination ever!
This is my favorite band. Their songs will make your mouth drop
Are you kidding me, bb is the best should be in the top tens. They have about 50 songs, each one is breath taking. Every song is amazing, not one song you won't like. Why are they 23?
[Newest]Great band, but there alternative rock. Not metal

18Alter Bridge
Alter Bridge is the most underrated band I know. It is my favorite band, and people need to give it a shot. Every band-member is a brilliant musician at their own field. I guess you either love or hate Kennedy's voice, but I think it is best in the business. Their new album is coming in a month, everybody needs to buy it, you won't regret it. ALTER BRIDGE
Hey, check out Mark Tremonti's solo album All I Was. It shows his guitar chops and his vocal and songwriting abilities! He makes Alter Bridge one of the best modern rock bands!
Please get this awesome band higher n higher!
Jzt love many of their stuff like ghost of days gone by, addicted to pain, cry of achillies n many more

19Five Finger Death Punch
Five Finger Death Punch is a killer metal band. If you have never heard of them you should really listen to some of my favorite songs "100 Ways to Hate", "Remember Everything", "No One Gets Left Behind".
Badass band and amazing work on their albums, war is the answer is possibly the greatest metal album released in the past 10 years, Not to mention they came over to play for us when I was deployed to Iraq, it was the greatest concert ever
I'm not going to spend much time on this because I don't want a fan war, but the only reason they fall into 8th is because they are a fairly new band, and because it's a little difficult to relate to them.

20Korn
Such an amazing band

21Saliva
Are you KIDDING ME? This band has the BEST modern metal song: Your Disease. Click Click Boom is also up there as one of the best. Slipknot and Disturbed are also great

22Between the Buried and Me
Progressive death metal/ deathcore. I will leave that to the individual to decide what genre they R.IK that deathcore will turn a lot of metalheads off, but trust me. This band is WAY more then just a deathcore band, and deserves a good listen or two.

xxforeverxmetal


23Meshuggah
R you crazy? Meshuggah must at least among top 10 if not in top 5! And how on earth breaking benjamin be a Metal band?
All I see is just Hard Rock kids taking the top positions. Meshuggah has been in the scene for more than 26 years. And this is sufficient enough to showcase the virtuosity and experience they command.

24Dream Theater
Dream Theater changed music, they truly are one of the most talented bands of all time.
The members make out songs from heart and the music too is heart touching. It sings and can sing all kind of songs.
Plain and Simple... they are BEAST!

fireinside96

[Newest]Best lyrics, perfect music, totally amazing.

25Dragonforce
The best speed and power metal IN the history, but is just my opinion, is a good british band, thei're music is só hard.
If you are interested, listen to one of those songs
-OPERATION GROUND AND POUND
-FURY OF THE STORM
-TROUGH FIRE AND FLAMES
I don't like the vocal guy, but the lead is awelsome, Herman Li is one of the best on guitar.
Some people don't know this band but is really good.
Dragon force OWNZ! Where is killswitch engage? THEY DESERVE TO BE IN THIS LIST!

26Tool
One of the Best Metal Heads! Vicarious & Schism are masterpieces!
Without question, the best metal band of all time.
Tool created progressive metal

27Black Label Society
Because Zakk Wylde is an absolute beast. You really need to listen to Godspeed Hellbound and In this River.
These guys should be in the top ten for the riffs alone! Plus zakk wilds unique vocals

28Atreyu
Look at the lyrics if you are not lovers
Atreyu is tops Their songs are amazing best band out there now!

rdubz


29Soilwork

30Amon Amarth
Amon amarth should be #1
#2 behind Machine Head

31Drowning Pool
Yes I know. You are all like ugh this band sucks now. No they don't. I agree that if Dave Williams were here they might have topped disturbed and I feel bad that his tragic heart attack by cardiomypathy ended his career at only 30. He is one of the greatest metal singers to step foot on earth. If they produced more songs, they would be #1. Two of my favorites are "Bodies" and "All over me", however "Sinner", and other songs dominated my playlist. Lets move on.C.J. pierce, Mike Luce, Stevie Benton, and Jasen Moreno are now the members. This band basically died off after their first few albums, and it's a shame. They really had it. And one death Messes it all up.

32Enforcer

33Slayer
They influenced countless metal bands and have been thrashing souls for 3 decades.

34High on Fire

35Motionless In White
Best metalcore band of the decade they incorporate so much more then just punk rock, rock, and techno into there music! They speak about the problems in today's society in there own way calling out anyone and everyone on the bs that runs today's world
My absolute favorite band <3 I love how they mix electronics into their music and they improve with every album!
Motionless deserves to be way higher

36Haste the Day

37Cauldron

38Skull Fist
Skull Fist deserves to be up there come on guys! No false metal!

39Deftones
Yes deftones are the best band on earth. The only band on this list that combines the heaviness with beautiful textures and sounds. And perfects it to make such an awesome band

40Alice in Chains

41The Faceless
Another progressive deathcore band. I know I have spammed this list with prog bands, but is that actually a bad thing? The faceless could be considered technical death metal/deathcore. This band produces an extremely fast and aggressive sound, and the shredding of Michael Keene could literally leave you faceless.

xxforeverxmetal


42Voltax

43Behemoth
Behemoth is just amazing. Insane vocals and powerful music. Brutal

44Evanescence
I don't have to explain this, it's a no brainer. " bring me to life". That's it. Not many other good songs, but My Immortal, Swimming Home was good.

45Hollywood Undead
They are not metal
This is not metal why is this even here
Cool música and they really reach out to those of us who feel alone in the world

46Static X

47Nickelback
Is this a joke

48Dethklok
The greatest death metal band I've ever heard

49Epica

50Steel Horse

51Iron Maiden
They have been around since 175 and they are still awesome. I have been listening to them all my life, as my parents are fans, and I have always lovd them. I admit the vocals may not suit what they are singing but that is't a factor for my opinion in music to be honest though I'm not saying it isn't important. However I find the songs very catchy and I don't see why they are so far down in the list
Should be number two behind Avenged Sevenfold.
The music is fantastic but the lyrics don't suit the reason of their music.

52Sign of the Jackal
Best Italian band ever!

53Papa Roach
At least Papa roach deserve to be in tge top 10, they are a true metal band m/

54Steelwing

55Bring Me the Horizon
Oliver Sykes is more than awesome vocalist!..
They rock forever!..
BRING ME THE HORIZON FOREVER && FOR LIFE!..
Was my favorite band for 3 years, 21 - 24
Best modern metal band
[Newest]Can you feel my heart?

56Black Veil Brides
I think the best thing about this band is all of their songs have no bad words, which is very amazing, people usually use bad words in their musics because it makes their musics sound more powerful, but to me black veil brides are just amazing they don't need any bad words to make their musics meaning strong at all, it's already very strong, I love you black veil brides AKA BVB!
This band is the worst of Metalcore and Glam metal combined. Absolute garbage.
Love black veil brides that ar amazing and andy biersack so sexy amazing his sexy voice love them

57Judas Priest
Unwreakable music and vocals and the meanings and lyrics are fabulous. the singer is a bit crazy about music. Good luck to you guys

58Chariots of the Gods
Hi folks, try listen this! It has all you should except, melodies, harmonies and solos. My personal most heard band last months.

59Volbeat
Fantastic songwriting, heavy dual guitar attack, a great rhythm section and a very talented vocalist. It's a shame they're so low on the list, check out anything off their latest album and you won't be disappointed. Great live, too.
Have you seen these guys live? Worth every penny!

60Parkway Drive
The're awesome the band excist for 11 years now The drummer was 13 years old and the others between 16 and 18 and they made their first album with " I killed the prom queen" they album was a sucsess the guys from Parkway drive live in Australia they don't drink don't do drugs and don't smoke they look like normal people you never expect they make this music and the screams of winston are heavens this band is awesome! ♥

61Skeletonwitch
Skeletonwitch has been around for few years and their songs have been short... but epic! They really have talent and I think they deserve to be on this list.

Pzycho5


62Good Charlotte

63Dope
Dope should be number one, I'm sorry, all of their songs are just SO LIVELEY and you just just wanna scream, shout and party to all of em I love this band. YOU SPIN ME RIGHT ROUND BABY RIGHT ROUND

64August Burns Red
August Burns Red is so underrated. They should be higher up. And why are bands like Three Days Grace on here! I love them but they are definitely NOT metal.
So under rated what the hell people they should at least be like number 3
ABR shaped metalcore for what it is today. Anyone that disagrees should so some research!

65H.I.M

66Machine Head
The Blackening was the very best album of the last century..
It was a progressive riff barrage, great lyrics, great rhythmic work, catchy hoks and grooves, Haunting gang vocals, and amazing, smooth, yet mindblowing solos.. Wolves, Aesthetics of Hate and Slanderous are some of the best songs of 00-09!
Machine Head's UNTO THE LOCUST! Listen to it! Review of reviewers it 10/10! B*tch -. -

joaocarvalho

Black Veil brides is above Machine head. Who bought the twelve year olds computers?

67Rammstein
Possibly the best live show in metal. Besides their pyrotechnic performances, their sound quality is flawless live. Songs like Sonne, Ich Will, and Kien Lust really makes you feel that you are part of the while headbanging. Not only all their songs are awesome and creative, their lyrics ( if you translate them ) are a work of art. The true pioneers of Industrial Metal.
They are the best live show, there music just gets stuck in your head, one of the best for sure.
Greatest live rock let alone metal show.

68Three Days Grace
Three days grace consists of Brad Walst, Neil Sanderson, and Barry Stock. They produced many head banging songs such as "Pain" and "Chalk Outline". They truly show what a metal band is. They have produced 4 studio albums, and they are mainly alternative/ hard rock but are also alternative metal and post-grunge.
Three Days Grace is one of my favorite bands, sure they don't do metal exclusively but the metal songs they do are amazing, they should definitely be in the top 15

69Trapt
Trapt is a hard rock or alternative metal band. If I say their band name, you probably won't know them. But if I play "Still Frame" or "Headstrong" you'll be like " I blared that all day". Well these guys did that. These guys are the elite of metal. They have released 5 studio albums.

70Ram

71In Flames
GreatesT Band On Earth In FLAMES WE TRUST
Yes I know "they deserve a betta pwace on dis list, what sorcery is wis? 1? 1! ". Again, this is my opinion. I love their music, but it's screamo. It's very difficult to impossible to understand the first time, and difficult to relate to. They also seem to focus a lot on 2 things: fast solos, and even faster chorus.

72Amaranthe
What I love about this band is the 3 vocalists. It bring a awesome mix to the music.
All the vocalists (Elize Ryd: clean female vocals, Jake E: clean male vocals, Andreas Solveström: guttural vocals) are impeccable. Olof Mörck also really knows how to throw together a powerful mixture of guitar and keys the likes I've never heard. It's almost like power metal, yet they are truly modern metal and one of the best examples of it.

73Asking Alexandria
Not the American Average! Brilliant song! Awesome up and coming band!
One of my favorite bands! This should be way at the top not 73...
Awesome band what is it doing in 73.

74Wolf
Under rated band, beats a lot of American bull metal bands.

75X Japan
The band sings various styles and can do better too. It longs more to work on metalism.

76Children of Bodom
Deserves to be at least 10.

77Fozzy

78The Sword
Great power stoner metal band

79Municipal Waste
Fast, wicked abominations of pure thrashing goodness
An instant classic
There music is awesome, and they are incredible live

80Battlecross

81Godsmack
Sully Erna is a truly underrated vocalist. Shannon Hoon is a great drummer. The strings section of this band is fantastic. It would be great if they were ranked higher
Godsmack is amazing. Straight out of line is an intense song that has amazing musicianship between all members of the band!
Godsmack is one of the best metal bands ever!

82Marilyn Manson
The most original & unique artist ever
The guy's a total legend!

83Ghost
Unique sound. Pretty fresh to the metal scene but give it a year or two and they will be big. Probably in my top 10 metal bands.

84Device
This band is just the greatest out! It combines a mixture of all different types of metal to create music that is perfection! This band has the vocals of Disturbed and the sound of Avenged Sevenfold!
It's a perfect mic if I must say!

85Mudvayne
69th place on the list with avenged sevenfold as #1? Mudvayne is far better. Mixing of melodics and screams is amazingly good. Bassist is just as good with his unique style that takes a master to perfect. Evanscence, Trapt, Drowing Pool, Black availed Brides have no place to be higher on the list than Mudvayne.
They are all original and too underrated
Mudvayne is underrated it has amazing skill and great songs this band sould be at a much higher rating

86Megadeth
This band is too much underrated in regard of their potential. it is already One of the top just needs a couple of votes
Why are the BIG 4 in this list
The BIG 4 were formed in the 1980's
They are not supposed to be here -_-
Dave mustaine, arguably one of the most powerful music composers. The aggression he brings on to his music is just fabulous! Megadeth are one of th best metal bands ever to have scaled the planet!

87Black Sabbath
I know that these guys aren't modern metal but I think just because of the influence that they have had on every single band on this list they deserve to be number one. Not to mention the amazing body of work they have put out over the last 40 years.
All the singles are good and the vocals too but the meanings don't match.

88Sevendust
This is one of the best bands ever.
This entire list is such bs. We got girly pop (so-called) "bands" at the top, and the truly amazing bands further down. How disappointing!

89Shadows Fall

90The Black Dahlia Murder
Extremely solid melodic death metal. Ryan Knight is a great guitarist, Shannon Lucas is an absolute monster drummer, and Trevor Strnad has some awesome highs and lows.
Ryan very good guitarist and in my humble opinion trevor is and will always be one of death metals best vocalist he can execute his highs and lows I can't even decide which I like more tbdm is better than almost all of the top 20 on this last in fact the top 20 should be the last 20 they have skill there just not that good look up ritual and the everblack and nocturnal

91Exhorder

92Falling in Reverse
Ronnie Radke - enough said

93Extol
Their new album came out this year, and is brilliant. This band is the best, period.

94Halestorm
Really good vocals, quite unexpected as the front leader/singer of the group is a woman ; even if some songs in my opinion have "boring lyrics", they are truly amazing!

95Dead by April
The greatest Modern Metal band ever! These guys are simply the best. Heavy bass and guitar, hard drumming and screaming with synthesizers and melodic clean vocals give this band the perfect sound. Songs like "Painting Shadows" are not always found, it's like once in a lifetime. The bands screamer, Christoffer Andersson, sounds like a chainsaw cutting metal and the clean singer, Zandro Santiago, sounds like an angel. Both vocalists make the perfect combination of clean vocals with screaming leading other bands to shame, just listen to their album "Let the World Know" and you will see why this band's a million times better and deserving the no. 1 spot on this list. Just sad to see DbA so low... very underrated. But anyways, this band rocks the hell out! Go Dead by April!
How stupid the people didn't mention this awesome band on this list. Dead by April is all about Modern Metal. Bands like Nickelback should not even be on this list, instead they should learn something if this band. Oke, straight to the point, do you prople know what MODERN Metal is? I guess no, because I see the old 80's bands like Metallica out here (I like them). Dead by April is the defenition of Modern Metal, they are so modern with their awesome synthesizer blend with poppish vocals and of course Metal. They are the one who are worthy being called Modern Metal because they add the modern taste to their music, and they're not even comparable to the other bands out here on this list that aren't even Metal. People wake up!...
