41 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

42 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.

44 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

The heaviest band everrr

46 Tool Tool Tool is an American progressive metal/alternative metal band, that was formed in 1990. ...read more.

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.

Like it or not, I think Tool has some of the heaviest music I've heard. HEAVY, not speed, death or thrash. Danny Carey is one of the best drummers 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, and songs Lateralus, Eulogy and 46 & 2 for just straight up, smash your face heavy.

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

47 Iced Earth Iced Earth Iced Earth is an American heavy metal band from Tampa, Florida. It was formed in 1985 under the name Purgatory by guitarist and main songwriter Jon Schaffer and original drummer Greg Seymour.

50 Kreator Kreator Kreator is a German thrash metal band from Essen. Their style of music is similar to that of their compatriots Destruction, Sodom and Tankard; along with those three bands, Kreator has been referred to as one of the "big four" of Teutonic thrash metal, and they are often credited with helping pioneer ...read more.

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! - GreenDayFan21

57 Dragonforce Dragonforce DragonForce are a British power metal band based in London, England. Formed in 1999, the group are known for their long and fast guitar solos, fantasy-themed lyrics, and electronic sounds in their music to add to their retro video game-influenced sound.

Operation Ground and Pound is pretty heavy, but most of their songs are epic, not heavy.

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!

The group has released five full-length studio albums and are currently a five piece with vocalist Brook Reeves as one of the two original remaining members along with Manny Contreras who left the band in 2010 but returned ...read more.

The only reason they aren't higher is because of how underrated they are. Trust me if they were more popular they would be much higher. Listen to songs like "Deceiver", "Death Will Reign", or "Murderer" All of these are very heavy songs

Just listen to their older stuff like Nailed. Dead. Risen. Or My Nemesis they are pretty insane if you ask me. Plus most of the bands on here aren't even heavy...

These guys knock slipknot out of the park when it comes down to heaviness!

Best Christian metal band ever awesome band
