3Black Metal

Some of its really heavy. Immortal, Marduk, gorgoroth, 1349, and emperor are probably the heaviest. Others like mayhem and bathory are about as heavy as a thrash band - ryanrimmel

Immortal and Gorgoroth are the two heaviest bands of the genre - countnightdark13

Immortal yes but other bands no. - GREYBOYY

4Grindcore

Napalm Death
Carcass
Aborted
Pig Destroyer
Agoraphobic Nosebleed
Extreme Noise Terror
Repulsion
Terrorizer
Nasum
Brutal Truth - ryanrimmel

5Doom Metal

Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Candlemass, Electric Wizard, Solitude Aeturnus, and Saint Vitus. They aren't fast, nor do they scream, but use dark riffs and melodies to create a dark atmosphere and make music sound heavy. - ElectricCorpseSlayer

6Groove MetalV1 Comment
7Extreme Metal

Extreme Metal is an umbrella term that covers thrash, Death, black, grind, and doom Metal. So this list doesn't make sense - ryanrimmel

Extreme metal is heaviest metal!

14Melodic Death Metal (Melo-Death)
15Progressive Metal

Not that heavy but needs to be higher. It got Slipknot, Soulfly and (referring to old school now) Linkin Park.
