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
I like A7x, but not for metalcore. If it comes to metalcore, then no one's better than PD. - zxmV 2 Comments
Very talented and creative, for those who ask for originality their new album "From Death To Destiny" will please you
You wouldn't know talent if it was chocking you
They definitely have their own sound, which I admireV 2 Comments
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.V 1 Comment
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..
Just love itV 3 Comments
Best band ever. Thy might not be heavy metal, but they're still metal.
It's the actual metal.It was something new.Something revolutionnary.Something really original.I know, many people hate them 'cause of crying in the lyrics or not as heavy sound they like to listen, but I will never forget that moment when I heard the breakdown from "Freak on a leash" and became KoЯn's fan.Really love this guys.
There music can be called as melodic metal... They are second only to avenged sevenfold
Myles Kennedy has one of the best voices and mark trimonti is one of the most talented guitarist around... Listen to their songs... Blackbird, metalingus, I know it hurts, brand new start and broken wings
Just listen to Blackbird - you'll become a fanV 1 Comment
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.
Amazing music, brilliant videos. RIP Mitch.V 1 Comment
I would say BMTH but they're electronicore so... And Austin is so musically talented. He can scream and sing, both sound amazing.V 1 Comment
Amazing harmony and power!
Rammstein the best
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.
Ok I like them very much burn my eyes.. But they are not at the level of MESHUGGAH Chaosphere and FEAR FACTORY demanufacture
I put them at the same level than SEPULTURA (cavalera) may be I prefer chaos AD
Ronnie Radke has a way with words, his lyrics are easy to understand and contains an always catchy beat.
One thing he has a similarity to Ian Watkins
Marilyn manson is perfect, his look his great his sound is great and his lyrics are amazing, you just have to keep listening once you start
I like antichrist superstar but it cannot be compared with band as MESHUGGAH it is not the same level of complexity
I love marilyn manson. His music is strange in a way that you have to love.
Best band everV 1 Comment
Love Texas in July. Heavy vocals. heavy everything. A spin off of Pure American Metal!
Mesmerizing band. Saw them live and fell in love. I hunted down every interview video and listened to every song until I memorized them all. Incredible band that should be in the top 10.V 1 Comment
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.
