Best Metal Subgenres to Headbang ToThose genres of metal which make you repeatedly move your head!
The Top Ten
Thrash Metal is just the PERFECT subgenre to headbang to!
Okay, headbanging to some old Iron Maiden songs or some epic speedy Motorhead or some good old Black Sabbath is great too, but Thrash is just the best music to headbang!
this genre is perfect for headbanging! You can headbang a complete thrash song, no matter if slow of fast! - rock2metal
The guitars sound epic and hell. It's great fun to learn if you're a guitarist, too. I might need to have a few treatments since my head might very well fall off.
I always headbang to Slayer - bobbythebrony
I'm not too into it, but it's a pretty good genre for headbanging. - RiverVibeZ
Perfect for headbanging. Qualities such as: great speed, deep growls and roars and distorted guitars make it perfect to headbang to no doubt
every member of a death metal band, bang his head while playing! - rock2metal
Probably the best, most varied genre. Every song is a brutal sonic attack, every minute filled with headbanging. From OSDM to Melodeath to Brutal Death to Tech Death to Blackened Death to Deathgrind to Death 'n' roll to Slam and to every little microgenre, death metal is the very best metal subgenre.
Thrash is lit, but sometimes it is too fast to headbang that it could break your neck. Groove metal is played at mid-tempo so that headbanging is much easier. It has the best groove in it. - yungstirjoey666
Groove Metal is the most HEAVIEST Metal Genre their is. The Groove just makes you want to jump around and punch someone in the nose
Especially Pantera. - RiverVibeZ
Groove is the king of headbanging.
Not gonna lie, I actually did headbang some of the heavy metal music. - Kevinsidis
Nothing gets me headbanging like Hallowed be thy Name
the heavy metal (or classic metal) is something great for this - rock2metal
Not every song or sub genre of this sub genre is it applicable, BUT, windmill style IS perfect for black metal.
One word: Bathory. Mostly their older stuff though. - RiverVibeZ
You always bang your head to black metal. - Ananya
bands like DT always make you headbang into their notes - rock2metal
TOOL sort of
the metalcore breakdowns are perfect for this - rock2metal
Should be number on and Death Metal number 2, who headbangs their head with thrash metal? - GREYBOYY
Best genre for headbanging just hear as I lay dying - through struggle and start the headbang
Yeah yeah, I'm biased towards this genre by a lot but let's be honest here, this is full of plenty of headbanging worthy bands. Rage Against The Machine, System Of A Down, Korn, etc. - DarkBoi-X
Death, Opeth, Nile, very good bands to move you. - GREYBOYY
Listen to slipknot and mudvayne and mushroomhead - marco-mbs
Progressive Deathcore with groove... Like ARISTEIA, less breakdown more progression.
(Not all of it is chug chug. )
Although My Favorite Genre Is Metalcore But I Go For Deathcore because This Genre Is Filled With Skull Crushing Breakdowns
Thy Art Is Murder
Awesome Headbanging Stuff
It's a lot like an enhanced version of classical music designed for headbanging!
The vocalist sounds like dubstep synths
(Haha, no I love slam. Its sound cool with jazz harmony)
Slams are love. Slams are life. All hail Slam. Seriously though VERY underrated.
