The Contenders: Page 12

221 The Devil Wears Prada The Devil Wears Prada The Devil Wears Prada is an American metalcore band from Dayton, Ohio, formed in 2005. It consists of members Mike Hranica, Jeremy DePoyster, Andy Trick, and Daniel Williams.

While most other bands just play for the fun of it, these guys put their heart into it. They're heavy and sound like they've been playing for ages.

Come on! It is a christian band but at least put it higher on this list

222 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch is an American heavy metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name is derived from a fictional martial arts maneuver in the 2003 film Kill Bill.

5fdp should be way higher on this list. They are pretty damn heavy

223 Job for a Cowboy Job for a Cowboy Job for a Cowboy is an American death metal band from Glendale, Arizona. Formed in 2003, the band's debut album Genesis was released in 2007, peaking at No.

Unfortunately, this list is people voting for what is most comfortable in their realm. They're not going out and exploring what is truly heavy; it's merely people who aren't really into the genre voting for what is most prominent and mainstream. When put up against Job For A Cowboy, Behemoth, Thy Art Is Murder, etc., Metallica simply does not compare in terms of heaviness. And yet they remain at the top. Why? Because people recognize it. It's the "safe" part of metal. I will cede that Metallica was revolutionary. They brought a niche genre to a wider audience. However, that was 25 years ago. They are just not relevant to metal anymore.

You guys have no idea what metal is until you've heard these guys. Metallica's okay and Slipknot's okay, but this band is super ' heavy.

I don't really enjoy brutal death metal unless it has more of a grind edge and pig squeals less prominent. (i.e. I like cattle decapitation and brutal truth but not this). But obviously this is top 20 heavy

224 Primus Primus Primus is an American rock band based in San Francisco, California, currently composed of bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander. Les Claypool is regarded as one of the best bassists of all time for his slap-bass ability in notable songs like "My Name Is Mud", "The Toys more.

I know most are saying they're not heavy metal, but just listen to frizzle fry and compare it to something like nothing else matters

What is primus doing here on this list

225 Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria are an English metalcore band from York, North Yorkshire formed initially in 2008 by lead guitarist Ben Bruce along with former lead singer Danny Worsnop, bassist Joe Lancaster, keyboardist and synth player Ryan Binns, and current members drummer James Cassells and rhythm guitarist more.

I love them there sound is just so different but in a good way

Whole song is screamo! M/

The way they keep the heaviness mixing with that punk type of sound is unbelievable.

226 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. more.

BVB deserves their name on this list damn those who don't like them at all!

227 Nickelback Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

Nickelback are like the heaviest metal band ever when I first heard them I like got nightmares for about 2 weeks and apparently they asked Metallica if they wanted to have a fight to see who was heavier and James Hetfield started crying to Lars. Also they redefined the whole death metal genre and now many bands ie. job for a cowboy, behemoth and thy art is murder have been quoted saying nickelback is their main influence.

Really nickelback. Oh my god how is this even on the list. They are about as heavy as Justin Bieber is humble.

Matt pike riffs sound puny compared to the brutal crushing force that is raw nickelback.

Heaviest metal band ever. Should be number 1.
