How is ISIS only at 24? I'll grudgingly accept Top5 but Top25 is unacceptable.

23 Black Sheep Wall
24 Red Fang Red Fang Red Fang is an American heavy metal band from Portland, Oregon, formed in 2005. It is composed of guitarist and vocalist Bryan Giles, bassist and vocalist Aaron Beam, guitarist David Sullivan and drummer John Sherman.

Just great stoner metal, but while everyone rocks out I tip my cap to the rhythm guitar.

25 Sleep

Because it belongs at the very top with Electric Wizard.

Great, but not Sludge Metal. They are Stoner Metal, you kids will eventually learn!

Tf they should be number one. They are the definition of sludge.

26 Torche

Torche brings a pop sensation to sludge.

27 Grief

The most widely copied and imitated of all the original sludge bands. Everybody rips off these guys to this very day and they are hardly ever mentioned. 'I Hate the Human Race' is THE SLUDGE ANTHEM

28 Love Sex Machine

French Sludge Metal unrelenting and full on heavy

29 Demonic Death Judge

A fairly new band from Finland. This band's slow tempo riffs and deep growling will blow your mind.
