201 Outline In Colour

Fantastic metalcore group that should've already been on this list.

202 Savage Messiah
203 Anathema

Anathema is a band that when you listen to it you can feel that it's playing with your soul and your mind! It can mess up your mind! They lyric's are the one of the most psychological, philosophic lyrics has ever written! You can't understand what I mean till you listen to it yourself!

204 Nothing More

These guys are just amazing, the self titled album is probably one of my favorite albums of all time. You should definitely check songs like: This the Time, Mr. MTV, Christ Copyright, and Jenny.

205 Chimaira Chimaira Chimaira was an American heavy metal band from Cleveland, Ohio. Formed in 1998, the group was a notable member of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal scene.

One of few modern metal bands that, well, actually play(ed) metal. It's heavy, it's aggressive, it's full of attitude. Metalcore, post-thrash, groove, or whatever you'll call them, they did it the right way.

This is a joke, right? Placed at 173? They're uncomparably superior to all the other modern metal bands, like MH, DD, KE, AX7, Bullet For My Valentine, etc. I have truly lost faith in modern metalheads...

Should be in the top ten

207 Bhayanak Maut
208 Bloodsnot
209 Stoned Jesus
210 The Holy Guile

This band is like the best when it comes with breakdown.
The growling are way more better than Corey Taylor's screaming
Instrument wise they are just so overwhelming, the speed is incredible and the synchronised instrument and both vocals are also way better than Attila

211 In this Moment

Maria is hot as hell and the band rocks
