One of the best vocals I've ever heard

149 Escape the Fate

If you like Bullet For My Valentine, then you'll like these guys. They're awesome all-around. The guitarist's lead guitar and the singer's vocals kill. I promise you won't regret listening to them. Ungrateful out on 5/14/13.

Horrible. For one, this is post-hardcore, not metal. Second of all, the lyrics are garbage, either trying to be all "bad," being whiny, or a mixture of the two. Their guitarist was their only good quality. Get this trash off. Screw scene music.

157 Wovenwar

Wovenwar is epic, at its lyrics and at its beats. It brought back a style like classic metal bands, like Iron Maiden, with its melodic vocal and riffs.

158 Strapping Young Lad Strapping Young Lad Strapping Young Lad was a Canadian extreme metal band formed by Devin Townsend in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1994. The band started as a one-man studio project; Townsend played most of the instruments on the 1995 debut album, Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing.

Theas guys kinda suck

159 Protest the Hero

They are the bomb. Four albums and not a single ballad because they focus only on rupturing your eardrums with jaw dropping metal. The vocals and lyrics are incredible plus intricate guitar and obscene drums make them my favorite metal band. Oh, and they're from Canada, eh!

The guitar work of PTH never ceases to amaze me; somehow, they are able to play incredible, snaking melodic riffs at top speed that never feel out of place in the song. And, they navigate through time signature and rhythm changes effortlessly! No two songs sound the same by them, partially thanks to Rody Walker's monstrous vocal cords. In fact, their lyrical composition alone puts them far ahead of any "metal" band like Linkin Park or Disturbed.

160 Toxic Holocaust Toxic Holocaust Toxic Holocaust is an American black/thrash metal band from Portland, Oregon, formed in 1999. The band has gained notoriety among the thrash metal community, and is arguably one of the most popular modern thrash metal bands. Toxic Holocaust also gained attention when their song "Bitch" was featured more.
