Best Modern Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 3
Papa Roach was one of those bands that made their bones in the "Nu Metal" era. When the "Nu Metal" ship sank, they crossed over to Alterna-Metal to stay relevant. Basically, they dropped the hip hop element of their music that defined many "Nu Metal" bands and was used prominently on their breakthrough album, "Infest." These guys get a lot of flak however, I think they deserve more respect. They did put out some good music from time to time. I still crank "Forever" from time to time. Mostly when I'm drunk, but still...
Seriously just stop, not only are they not metal they make bad music regardless - imabigpotato
This isn't really metal, although they do have a guilty pleasure for me or two.
At least Papa roach deserve to be in tge top 10, they are a true metal band m/
They take all the essential ingredients of original (New wave of British) heavy metal, and perform it better than most of the original bands did back in the day. Perhaps they are too retro for some people, but I think heavy metal was at its finest in the early 80's.V 1 Comment
Dream Theater changed music, they truly are one of the most talented bands of all time.
The members make out songs from heart and the music too is heart touching. It sings and can sing all kind of songs.
Plain and Simple... they are BEAST! - fireinside96
DT is my favorite band, but they aren't really modernV 3 Comments
Great power stoner metal band
Amazing band should be higher
Yes I know. You are all like ugh this band sucks now. No they don't. I agree that if Dave Williams were here they might have topped disturbed and I feel bad that his tragic heart attack by cardiomypathy ended his career at only 30. He is one of the greatest metal singers to step foot on earth. If they produced more songs, they would be #1. Two of my favorites are "Bodies" and "All over me", however "Sinner", and other songs dominated my playlist. Lets move on.C.J. pierce, Mike Luce, Stevie Benton, and Jasen Moreno are now the members. This band basically died off after their first few albums, and it's a shame. They really had it. And one death Messes it all up.
Absolutely a great band, while everyone keeps saying metalcore sucks and whatnot, they're there to shut their mouth, sure they may not beat bands like slipknot,a7x, but someday they'll grow bigger, their albums just keep getting better and better
The're awesome the band excist for 11 years now The drummer was 13 years old and the others between 16 and 18 and they made their first album with " I killed the prom queen" they album was a sucsess the guys from Parkway drive live in Australia they don't drink don't do drugs and don't smoke they look like normal people you never expect they make this music and the screams of winston are heavens this band is awesome! ♥
Skull Fist deserves to be up there come on guys! No false metal!
One of the best and most influencial band in the modern technical death metal scene, these guys are also very creative and insanely talented.
Are you kidding me? Generic crappy deathcore and all this "thug life" crap mixed together is just awful. Get that atrocious garbage off of here. Let them rot with other scene bands. Just no. They are not better than Deftones, Breaking Benjamin(but they're not metal), Slayer(but they're nto modern), Megadeth(but they're not modern), Dragonforce(don't really listen to them, but I've heard them and know they're better), Ghost(haven't heard much of them, but they are for sure waay better than this awful band), Maiden, Sabbath, Dethklok, or any of that. They don't even belong on a good bands list.
By far the best metal band in this list.
Yes I know "they deserve a betta pwace on dis list, what sorcery is wis? 1? 1! ". Again, this is my opinion. I love their music, but it's screamo. It's very difficult to impossible to understand the first time, and difficult to relate to. They also seem to focus a lot on 2 things: fast solos, and even faster chorus.
GreatesT Band On Earth In FLAMES WE TRUST
They are the face of progressive metal. They create epic combinations of heavy, heavy, metal and electronic that are totally worth blowing your speakers to listen to and, somehow, make slow songs that can make your skull rattle whilst sending shivers down your spine. Give them a listen.
Combining Melodic hooks with pounding grooves takes talent. keep an eye out for them in the future
Awesome band, they should be In a better position.V 4 Comments
This band is too much underrated in regard of their potential. it is already One of the top just needs a couple of votes
Why are the BIG 4 in this list
The BIG 4 were formed in the 1980's
They are not supposed to be here -_-
Dave mustaine, arguably one of the most powerful music composers. The aggression he brings on to his music is just fabulous! Megadeth are one of th best metal bands ever to have scaled the planet!
Double bass drum metal music from Shawn Droover. Follow Dave Mustaine's band!.V 3 Comments
These guys are legendary! Forefathers and ground-breakers of modern metal as we know it today. Too bad people don't give them their rightful credit...
Come on now people... How are these guys not on the list?V 1 Comment
Best metalcore band of the decade they incorporate so much more then just punk rock, rock, and techno into there music! They speak about the problems in today's society in there own way calling out anyone and everyone on the bs that runs today's world
Motionless deserves to be way higher
These dudes are definitely destined for a great future!
These guys rockV 6 Comments
