I'm gonna be honest here I love Linkin Park, but I don't think they can be considered a "metal band"

Great band, don't belong anywhere on this list.

Is this a joke?

This should be above infant annihilator, behemoth, and last days of humanity for overall heaviness. dying fetus whooo? These guys are pure original headbanger stuff, only the most brutal, desensitized soul is really able to handle it's overall crushing speed, power, and lyrical brutality. also, Devourment is just a Linkin Park rip off

^ laugh out loud not even bro there were still way heavier bands than Metallica and maiden in both the 80's and 90's

ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Bring me the horizon has way heavier breakdowns and greater vocal ranger than any other band on this list the only band that could ever compete would be Asking Alexandria and
Parkway drive both of which are also way heavier than these other bands like Metallica and iron maiden now if this was heaviest 80's 90's bands then I would totally agree with this chart but for this there is no way that Metallica motorhead or iron maiden compete with some of the modern day metal bands out there

Lmao bmth is way heavier than bands on this list. I listen to slayer then bmth and definitely found bmth more heavier...
