The Contenders: Page 3
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 songV 1 Comment
This band definitely is not heavier than slayer or iron maiden (sarcasm)
This appears to be a popularity contest, rather than what is really "heaviest". Love slayer, slipknot... Etc but nothing can compare to SYL (except maybe meshuggah) for heaviness. - andrewtuckey
Devin is a genius
Devin's STRAPPING YOUNG LAD a bloody heavy band when they were around, with LOVE being a contender for the heaviest song title
So heavy that they make Slayer jealous.V 9 Comments
Singer guy is a douche, band is killer live
I think no one of you guys didn't listen to devourment
If you did
U must vote for this groupe
The heaviest band everrr
Like it or not, I think Tool has some of the heaviest sections in a few of their songs I've ever heard. I'm talking just straight up, sonic heaviness. Not like a lot of the thrash bands that are being touted as the heaviest when it's really just a wall of almost indistinguishable sound.
Dany Carey is probably the most talented drummer out there with his complicated polyrytnms and weird time signatures. I would submit songs like Hooker With a Penis and Crawl Away for some blistering double bass while others like Lateralus, Eulogy and 46 & 2 have some of the heaviest sections in a song I've heard. HEAVY, not speed, death or thrash. There's a significant distinction in my opinion.

I don't consider speed, thrash or death so much heavy as it is just fast and sometimes a completely indistinguishable wall of sound.
Tool is mad heavy the heaviest prog by far top 20 maybe
Listen to Dante's Inferno. You will understand.
Defiantly the heaviest power metal band how are they not highee
How can anyone listen to Arise or Chaos AD and think Slayer or Metallica are better Heavy Metal bands than Sepultura? Metallica are a bunch of whiny millionaires and Slayer are Nazi glorifying mascara wearing poseurs.
"Roots" is one of the heaviest albums ever... These guys should be in the top ten!
People that compare Metallica to sepultura they just don't know what thrash metal is and are totally brainwashed from commercial propaganda
Sepultura is like top 5 heavy the heaviest thrash bar slayerV 3 Comments
Jesus Christ, I don't think people realize that three bands out of the big 4 are honestly the least heavy thrash metal bands you'll find. German thrash metal bands like kreator, sodom, and destruction are the bands that influenced death metal and are some of the heaviest bands you'll ever hear. I can definitely say that kreator is heavier than slayer
Really kreator should be 2. Listen to violent revolution
Celtic Frost should be on this list!
50? This is the heaviest thrash metal band tied with Slayer! - GreenDayFan21V 1 Comment
These guys were/are heavy. It's different from any other band, there's no band like Obituary. Chopped in half is one heaviest songs ever.
This band are definitive heavy band. Stop posting you're faces & listen to heavy music.
Brain drill is the Heaviest followed closely by meshuggah putrid pile cannibal corpse Nile visceral disgorge guttural secrete Marduk and others. THIS LIST IS GARBAGE
They did coin the term "Brutal Death Metal", so I should say they need to be in the Top 5. - CrimsonShark
Operation Ground and Pound is pretty heavy, but most of their songs are epic, not heavy.
Because high pitched guitar wankery is apparently heavy smh
Dragonforce a one of the best and they mix speed metal and power metal so there doing powder meatl :D
I'm a child of the korn
Best band from the 90's. First album is still insane to listen to. Everything before the greatest hits vol. 1 is their heaviest work! Love KoRn!
I hate these. they created the nu metal. But the nu metal they created was very poor. there came our slipknotlp an lb . those are the pioneers of nu metal
