Best European Metal BandsMetalFoREVer1228
The Top Ten
Yes, no question it's Iron Maiden. Not only are they the most influential band, and are the inspiration for the guitar style of most good black metal bands out there, but they have the most "catchy" songs per album than any other band on earth. And because of the social structure of the music industry being what it is today there will probably never be another band like them again. I'm convinced Steve Harris' musical mind is actually blessed by God.
THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST.. ENOUGH SAID.
Children of bodom are good for 2nd
Opeth good for 3rd
Black Sabbath good for 4th..
Whatever how the list is ordered no better European band than Iron Maiden..
Up The Irons m/ - nooreldeen
Nightwish should be ranked higher. The awesome voices and the nice music.
Only 1 band can rank higher than these and that's maiden. Holopainen and Harris are phenomenal songwriters and both have fantastic musicians in their bands and of course dynamic lead singers
I'm quite a big industrial metal fan, and Rammstein are second only to nine inch nails in that category
