The Top Ten

1 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). ...read more.

The best metal band ever!..
Shadows's vocals, Syn's lead guitar, Zacky's rhythm guitar, Johnny's Bass, Rev's (or Arin's) drumming!..
They're SUPER-AWESOME!..

They are the new wave of heavy metal. Have you guys heard any of their Albums. Waking the Fallen was probably the best metalcore album back then. They are most definitely above a NU-METAL band like slipknot. Probably one of the best guitarist, lead singer, and had the best drummer before he died (R.I.P the rev)

The best ever

Avenged Sevenfold is everything. Matt's amazing voice, Syn & Zacky's guitar skills, Johnny's bass lines and Jimmy's drumming made them the band they are today. Thankfully, Arin is here to continue where Jimmy left off. Avenged is the best band ever! R.I. P Jimmy The Rev Sullivan.

2 Slipknot Slipknot Slipknot is an American Heavy Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band is best known as one of the pioneers of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal during the late 1990s - 2000s and are distinguishable by the band's clothing choices, consisting of black/red jumpsuits and horror inspired masks. ...read more.

There is simply no other metal band that compares to slipknot, of the 1000's that exist and I've heard from whatever genre, slipknot is instantly recognisable and original, tribal drumming, the vocal selection from coreys powerhouse screaming and singing with deep moving voice, guitars that sound good enough to kill someone, the anger level is lethal and cannot be replicated authentically, metal would not be the same without them, slipknot have changed my life and continue to inspire for as long as there is electricity to listen

Slipknot is imply the best band, sadly they have never came to South Africa. Joey is the most amazing drummer and I think slipknot is the second best band in the world due to their brilliant song "snuff". I'm sorry but I would place Bullet For My Valentine as number 1 on thi list

No hate on a7x great band but they shouldn't be number one slipknot revolutionized metal combining rap and screaming and the contrast between the soft spots and heavy patches in the song make them that much more brilliant amazing band corey taylor is a genius enough said

No way ever is Avenged Sevenfold even CLOSE to as heavy as Slipknot. Don't get me wrong, they are a good band, but they have nothing on this amazing band called Slipknot.

3 Lamb of God Lamb of God Lamb of God is an American heavy metal band from Richmond, Virginia. Formed in 1994, the group consists of vocalist Randy Blythe, guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler, bassist John Campbell, and drummer Chris Adler.

Probably one of the most talented metal bands out there right now, some truly astonishing musicianship and talent behind their works, and as alluded to by other fans, there is a heavy Pantera influence, and these guys are their well-deserving successor. As The Palaces Burn, Sacrament and Resolution are probably their best works, raw and uncompromising, powerful and thought provoking, spine-crushingly heavy and epic. Even if they're not to your taste, you'd do yourself a disservice by not giving them a try.

Awesome band, can't compare to any other. Amazing drummer and vocalist! Randy Blythe never fails to impress!

Epic band! Pantera influences and Slayer influences are obvious, but they have a very unique style that makes them much more than the knock-offs some will say they are!

Yes yes yes this is something good seen in one of the ratings of TheTopTens.com lest I would have been kept waiting to see my best band among the top bands in many lists but in rare categories now I see some real deal
Talking about some songs can't actually mention many because almost all of them are the best but some good or rather why not to say the best ones are
"Laid to rest" "walk with me in hell" "now you've got something to die for" "redneck" "blacken the cursed sun" "fake massiah" "HOURGLASS" "descending" "11TH HOUR" "ashes of the wake" "again we rise" "as the palaces burn"... Blah blah blah! Can't stop mentioning them all because they are all of them best listening to them makes me feel that I am exactly at the middle of heaven and hell!

Every jam is different, you could also understand every word.. They're heavy yet soft, they are intricate with their music, great drums and voice...

Oh hell yes! System are my life, their songs are so... Weird it's awesome, been listening to them since I was a kid because my parents would always play them, even though I'm more into metalcore, System of a Down are always great to listen to

System of a Down rocks! Uh, no pun intended. Their songs never get old to me.

I have mezmerize at the moment I don't like it I prefer music as meshuggah

5 Disturbed Disturbed Disturbed is an American nu metal/ alternative rock/ alternative metal band from Chicago, Illinois. The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren. They are known for songs like "Down With the Sickness" and "Stricken" .

I love disturbed I grew up with them and got into them with their first album. down with the sickness. ever since then I always loved them more than anything. they were the best band ever to me. to be honest if it wasn't for disturbed. I wouldn't know most of the music I know today. they were the gate open to metal music to me.

In terms of originality and the sheer power of their music, no one can touch Disturbed. Not Avenged Sevenfold and Synyster Gates with his super-high output pickups, not Volbeat, who is closer to hard rock than metal, NO ONE!

They Should Be the 1st Just Listen To their 2008 album (indestructible)
You will like them in my opinion it is the best 2008 album :)
And Slipknot should be the 2nd place listen to all hope is gone - nooreldeen

Disturbed is a great heavy metal band, and their 2008 Album Indestructible is an amazing group of songs filled with magnificent music and great lyrics.

6 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch, often shortened to Five Finger or Death Punch, also abbreviated as 5FDP or FFDP, is an American Alternative Metal/Alternative Rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name comes from the kung fu movie The Five Fingers of Death.

LOVE five finger death punch. By far, one of the best metal bands I've ever heard.

Come on now this should be number one

Bullet for my valentine is such a awesome band.. What IT IS DOING BELOW.. And came the second 5FDP.. They are the modern heavy metal.. Rest I like are present in this list of top ten...

Their first cd is a masterpiece... I think they should be at least 1st or 2nd

Children Of Bodom need to be more listened in the world, even in North Korea, Afghanistan etc. Because that band is not terrible and have a lot of awesome songs

Chilren of Bodom is simply the best band I have ever listened, specially their song "Every time I die" is a masterpiece.

Cob is one of the best European metal bands ever.

A very underrated Finnish band together with nightwish

Totally wrong list! Bullet For My Valentine should be at least at top 3! It is not like other bands who just scream without any talent! - rohitsingh

What? Seriously?
Slipkont, five finger death punch & killswitch engage are rated higher than Bullet For My Valentine hell no this is so not happening

Yep totally agree, Bullet For My Valentine should be in top 2 :D

The top ten bands are great! Bullet For My Valentine, Disturbed, or Volbeat should be number 1. I guess Avenged Sevenfold works for for me too though. They are pretty great!

9 Killswitch Engage Killswitch Engage Killswitch Engage is an American metalcore band from Westfield, Massachusetts, formed in 1999 after the disbanding of Overcast and Aftershock.

I am so grateful that I have never been reduced to just one style of music or let I style define me.L am a 57 yr old man that probably understands in ways that when through situations we will never know something very powerful is produced it was given to us in Killswitch.

Killswitch Engage is positive, fast, and heavy. What more could you ask for?
The band is so underrated it's not even funny. I think they deserve at least top 5.

Should be in the top 5

Super band, I love the new holy diver!

10 Volbeat Volbeat Volbeat are a Danish heavy metal band formed in Copenhagen in 2001. They play a fusion of rock and roll, heavy metal and rockabilly.

Truthfully I just discovered this band a few months ago... But they are awesome and I've since bought all 5 of their albums. I want America to know what Denmark already knows... Volbeat is here!

I discovered Volbeat about a year ago and I had never heard anything like it. It was so unique and quite different, but I instantly fell in love!

This is great band it should be in the top 10 list - Schulm3

Volbeat are fantastic. Original yet so classic - sextysex

The best metal in years. Heavily underrated. A mix of Pantera, Testament, Lamb of God with a touch of maybe Rush. The ingredients seem self destructive but work very well in this band. Vocal is great, rhythm section is very potent. Guitars do what they need to do. All in all it's a travesty the band does not have more support throughout the world probably because its not promoted well enough.

13 Trivium Trivium Trivium is an American Heavy Metal band from Orlando, Florida, formed in 1999. Their frontman, Matt Heafy, lead guitarist Corey Beaulieu and Bassist Paulo Gregoletto are the band's most consistent members and have appeared in every album since. ...read more.

They have changed avery album all in different directions. They have created amazing masterpieces like shogun and the crusade and just kick ass songs like strife and in waves

Listen to Down From The Sky and In Waves and you'll know why Trivium is the future of Metal

The new Metallica sound is here

Best metal band ever

More than music, an auditory and visual experience layered with true artistry and meaning. Not just angry, not just heavy, but a thinking man’s metal. My all time favorite.

Tool is something which takes you to a different dimension. Their songs just match the frequency of your brain waves producing resonance which leads to ultimate satisfaction

As heavy as it gets, and still the sound is open and uncompressed. Killer Aussie Hard Core Metal. Very few bands around today have the balls these guys have. Keep going' fellas you do us proud.

OK, don't get me wrong I'm a huge 'Knot fan, but on the top of this list I've read "metalcore", so WHY ISN'T PARKWAY DRIVE IS IN THE TOP 3 AT LEAST?

Their latest Album Atlas is off the charts

No doubts the best band ever!

I love Oli even more for calling his cheating wife out onstage at Glastonbury this year. I just hope this doesn't set him back on his road to drug free recovery. Sometimes those who seem outwardly strong are hiding deeply felt inner demons. I sincerely hope all of BMTH will stand by him and support him at this difficult time.

Everything about this band is incredible. To the instruments, to the concept, to olis screams, their incredible. Their lyrical concept has saved my life and so many others. Oli sings about real life battles, issues, problems. He's one of the biggest inspiration in music.

This band is amazing! I can't live without them. They saved me..

This band honestly saved my life

This band changed many of my outlooks and views of life. Their songs got me through a lot of hard times. Music doesn't get much heavier and emotional than early mudvayne. Plus they have an awesome bass player.

Great band with a unique sound.

The fact that black veil brides is above this band yet all that remains isn't even on this list is a travesty. Plus there are death metal bands on here, a heavy metal/metal core list! Really guys, really?

Definitely one of the most under rated band! They have got originality of their own, unlike all other metalcore bands who are making same kind of music and just keep stuff repeating. Moreover there is no metalcore band that can compose such great soloes with perfect breakdowns. This band definitely should have been in top 5 in this list :(

As far as talent at their instruments goes ABR beats everyone on the list. It's just people don't like all screaming. If you get past the screaming as far a music itself goes, they destroy a7x, lamb if god, slipknot, etc.

32 Suicide Silence Suicide Silence Suicide Silence is an American deathcore band from Riverside, California. Formed in 2002, the band has released four full-length studio albums, one EP and eleven music videos.

This band is not number one? Come on I can't take you people seriously. Listen to The Blackening and Unto the Locust and tell me that you aren't on your knees begging for forgiveness

Machine head is the only good American modern metal band along with slipknot in my opinion they are an underrated metal band

Is this band new or old metal. I think this band is old metal because there first album came out in 1994.

I just can't believe that Machine Head isn't in the top ten for modern heavy metal bands

39 Red Red Red is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002 by brothers guitarist Anthony Armstrong and bassist Randy Armstrong, with lead vocalist Michael Barnes.

Not Heavy Metal or Metalcore. - Soulstealer

Red rocks! They are not as hard as some of the other bands on this list but they are one of my favorites. They always sound good, sing soft, singing loud or even screaming. I also really love their heavy use of a string section, it always sounds so cool. And finaly what sets them apart from my other favorites (Chevelle and Breaking Benjamin) is how good their Lyrics are.

Stop voting for bands like Slipknot. Vote for true talent.

These guys are far better than all of the up-and-coming bands out there. Killer melodies, insane screams and occasional growls, awesome cleans and powerful drumming. The only true metal band among all the scene bands.

Instrumentally way more creative than crappy bands like BOTDF and Brokencyde they shouldn't even be near the top 100
