21 Black Tongue

This band is so heavy. Mixed with Deathcore and Doom Metal. - Mumbizz01

By far the heaviest band of all time.

They need to be at least top 15

Wall of doom noise.

22 Suicide Silence Suicide Silence Suicide Silence is an American deathcore band from Riverside, California. Formed in 2002, the band has released four full-length studio albums, one EP and eleven music videos.

No this band is for little girls, not very heavy at all

You guys are dumb... suicide silence is not only lyrics the heaviest but hands down the best

They're overrated to be honest. So much better metal even within deathcore. The cleansing and a few other albums were alright but they feel generic and boring. - Azerix

Suicide silence=awesomeness

Hey man this year, the music. The first day, but the most part. The best

Suprised that I actually know these guys, they are black metal, which I guess is heavy. I don't really see why they are different from other black metal bands though

This list seems to be a popularity contest.

They're just pure chaos

24 Rings of Saturn Rings of Saturn Rings of Saturn is an American extreme metal band from the Bay Area, California. The band was formed in 2009 and was originally just a studio project.

These guys were heavy straight out of high school, they are one of the more unique metal bands out there, that don't sound exactly the same as other heavy bands

Heavier the most the bands on the list not better but heavier

25 Cryptopsy Cryptopsy Cryptopsy is a Canadian technical death metal band from Montreal, Quebec, formed in 1988. The band has sold over 300,000 records.

Their album "None So Vile" is probably the heaviest death metal album ever

LOL, Cryptopsy at #26, and Black Sabbath at #13, LOL, LOL, LOL - Metal_Treasure

26 System of a Down System of a Down System of a Down formed in 1994 as an Armenian-American Nu Metal group from Glendale, California . The band name is sometimes shortened to System or SOAD. ...read more.

More mainstream than I guess some folks like, but System can be very heavy. With songs like Attack, Needles, Sugar, Jet Pilot, Science... come on guys. Don't let your mainstream hate cloud your judgement. System of a Down can kick some serious ass.

Um... Disturbed over System? Maybe you should listen to their earlier stuff like Sugar or Spiders and compare that to Down with the Sickness or Stupify.

By the way, Testament should be higher in my opinion. And Dio.

What the hell is this? System of a down is one of the amazing bands which must be in top 15. Vocals by serji, malakian were amazing. These are awesome, you should listen to System of a Down in lifetime. System of a Down is forever

Not even metal. - zxm

27 A Thousand Times Repent
28 Amon Amarth Amon Amarth Amon Amarth is a Swedish melodic death metal band from Tumba, formed in 1992. The band takes its name from the Sindarin name of Mount Doom.

People seem to be just voting for their favorite bands instead of who the think is heaviest, cause a lot of good heavy metal bands aren't really all that "heavy" no matter how good they are.

Destroyer Of The Universe is the heaviest song ever

Hey

29 Origin Origin Origin is an American death metal band from Topeka, Kansas, founded in 1998. They have been recognized by music critics and metal fans alike for combining a harsh sound with a high level of technical skill.
30 Napalm Death Napalm Death Napalm Death are a British grindcore/death metal band formed in Meriden, West Midlands, England, in 1981. While none of its original members remain in the group, the lineup of vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway, bassist Shane Embury, guitarist Mitch Harris and drummer Danny Herrera has remained consistent ...read more.
31 Carcass Carcass Carcass are a British extreme metal band from Liverpool, who formed in 1985 and disbanded in 1995. A reformation was enacted in 2007 without one of its original members, drummer Ken Owen, due to health reasons.

Carcass are completely underrated as a band that played a bunch of different styles of metal and who's musicians played even more styles when they played in their other projects. This band rocks so hard when they play together. I love Carcass

Early carcass blows all away for pure aggressive heaviness & sound

32 Electric Wizard Electric Wizard Electric Wizard are an English doom metal band from Dorset, England. The band formed in 1993 and have recorded eight full length albums, two of which are now considered to be genre landmarks.

One word "Dopethrone". It really can't get any heavier than that! I really believe (in my opinion) that Avenge sevenfold is a joke band. Its hard for me to grasp a lot of these new bands that semi learn to play an instrument and change their name to something stupid that they feel sounds evil. Synyster HAHA! Joke

Yeah, this is just a popularity contest. This is definitely the heaviest band I've ever heard. Maybe not the best band in all categories, but in terms of heaviness Electric Wizard should be at least in the top 5.

How the hell is this band not even on the list, they are the heaviest band of all time, maybe not the best, but they are heavy as hell. Metallica is not very heavy, Slipknot isn't heavy, and Iron maiden isn't heavy. I like all those bands more than EW, but EW is the heaviest band of all time

Literally the heaviest band known to man

34 Infernal War Infernal War Infernal War is a Polish black metal band formed in Częstochowa in 1997. The band is known for their extreme anti-christian and WWII lyrics, leading them to be mislabeled as a NSBM band. Critics describe the band as "brutal black metal."
35 Mayhem Mayhem Mayhem is a Norwegian black metal band formed in 1984 in Oslo, regarded as one of the pioneers of the Norwegian black metal scene.

Pure armageddon is the heaviest and most evil, dark thing I have ever listened to. Combine that with the crazy history, and you get the heaviest band in existence

Their heavy riffs, combined with insane drums and crazy history makes them the heaviest band on earth

Listen to pure armageddon and tell me slayer is heavier..

Wait... mayhem below SOTD? - Ananya

37 Sunn O)))

The entirety of their work is just the definition of heavy. I'm not even really a fan, and I love heavy music, but even this band was too heavy for me. - Dorito

38 Periphery Periphery Periphery is an American progressive metal band based in Washington, D.C., formed in 2005. They are known for their heavy, progressive sound which employs poly-rhythmic patterns and soaring melodies.

As a testament to how obviously stupid this is, they put periphery in the heaviest bands list. lets vote Linkin Park to number 1 just to match the total lunacy of this list.

Periphery is a great and very heavy band. I think they should be Higher on this list, maybe not in the top 10 because they are also very melodic. Still, the play better than almost everybody else on the list. Their drummer plays SICK stuff.

What. no. are we being serious here, or is this all just made to troll actual metalheads? And as far as top 10 goes if periphery was in there we might as well have Linkin Park at #1 as a testament to how bull this is

I love them to death, but the only heavy stuff they do are the djenty breakdown stuff and screams.

39 Aversions Crown
40 Children of Bodom Children of Bodom Children Of Bodom is a melodic death metal band from Espoo, Finland. Formed in 1993, the group currently consists of Alexi Laiho, Janne Wirman, Henkka Seppälä, Jaska Raatikainen and Daniel Freyberg.

How is A7X and Linkin Park on this list?!

Love these guys, talented, very high energy, melodic, and HEAVY. If you listen to "Hate Crew Deathroll" three or four times per week, you will be in top cardiovascular condition.

Children of bodom 19th seriously!
This band should be in top 5 because people we are talking about death metal, black metal, gothic metal etc... ,
And this is where you expect COB to dominate many of their songs are even better than those of iron maiden!

Sixpounder is the heaviest song
