Best Modern Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 7
This is one of the best bands ever.
This entire list is such bs. We got girly pop (so-called) "bands" at the top, and the truly amazing bands further down. How disappointing!
They were my first metal show! They kick arse!
This band is just the greatest out! It combines a mixture of all different types of metal to create music that is perfection! This band has the vocals of Disturbed and the sound of Avenged Sevenfold!
It's a perfect mic if I must say!
Extremely solid melodic death metal. Ryan Knight is a great guitarist, Shannon Lucas is an absolute monster drummer, and Trevor Strnad has some awesome highs and lows.
Ryan very good guitarist and in my humble opinion trevor is and will always be one of death metals best vocalist he can execute his highs and lows I can't even decide which I like more tbdm is better than almost all of the top 20 on this last in fact the top 20 should be the last 20 they have skill there just not that good look up ritual and the everblack and nocturnalV 1 Comment
It's a crime for Amorphis to be at 145.
Listen to Eclipse, Skyforger, Under The Red Cloud, Circle, Silent Waters, The Beginning of Times, Am Universum, Elegy, Tales From A Thousand Lakes and Tuolena. You see, They never made a bad album at all.

This is real metal
The greatest Modern Metal band ever! These guys are simply the best. Heavy bass and guitar, hard drumming and screaming with synthesizers and melodic clean vocals give this band the perfect sound. Songs like "Painting Shadows" are not always found, it's like once in a lifetime. The bands screamer, Christoffer Andersson, sounds like a chainsaw cutting metal and the clean singer, Zandro Santiago, sounds like an angel. Both vocalists make the perfect combination of clean vocals with screaming leading other bands to shame, just listen to their album "Let the World Know" and you will see why this band's a million times better and deserving the no. 1 spot on this list. Just sad to see DbA so low... very underrated. But anyways, this band rocks the hell out! Go Dead by April!
How stupid the people didn't mention this awesome band on this list. Dead by April is all about Modern Metal. Bands like Nickelback should not even be on this list, instead they should learn something if this band. Oke, straight to the point, do you prople know what MODERN Metal is? I guess no, because I see the old 80's bands like Metallica out here (I like them). Dead by April is the defenition of Modern Metal, they are so modern with their awesome synthesizer blend with poppish vocals and of course Metal. They are the one who are worthy being called Modern Metal because they add the modern taste to their music, and they're not even comparable to the other bands out here on this list that aren't even Metal. People wake up!...
How the Hell is Nightwish not higher on this list? Seriously, the Big 4 should not even be on this list. They are good bands but they are NOT modern Metal. The fact that they are beating Nightwish is a travesty. I also believe that while Disturbed and Killswitch Engage are good bands. They are not as Good as Nightwish. Also, what the hell are Black Veil Brides doing ahead of this band? Nightwish produces some of the most complex and emotional music out there and Black Veil Brides are ahead of them. Also if Sonata Arctica aren't in this list then I have lost all faith in humanity.
I cannot comprehend why this band is so low on the list. Nightwish are incredible, I remember when I first heard them, evan as a metalhead myself they completely blew my mind about everything metal could be.
Their songs motivated me into picking up an electric guitar just to keep up with feeling those lyrics. Their bassist rocks too. And did I mention their drummer is a female? Gotta love this band
Their new album came out this year, and is brilliant. This band is the best, period.
Really good vocals, quite unexpected as the front leader/singer of the group is a woman ; even if some songs in my opinion have "boring lyrics", they are truly amazing!V 1 Comment
One of the most talented vocalist in metal or in all music for that matter, very underrated band
Best band ever! Very underrated!
Without a doubt some of the most talented musicians I've ever heard on album, seen live, and had the honor of meeting. With the creative and difficult rhythm of the guitars playing in great synchronicity, and a drummer who has some of the best technique and speed of any modern or classic metal drummer, this group from Birmingham UK will definitely be on your radar soon if they already aren't.
