Top Ten Heaviest Metal Bandsmetalmaster
The Contenders: Page 4
This band is one of the heaviest band I've ever heard.
True death metal at it's finest, definentely deserves to be at number one
The person who started this list is a poser!
Morbid angel at 11? Listen to god of emtiness
One of the heaviest bands on this list, and definitely one of the best.
Why is Slipknot at the number
Nine spot? Slayer does not deserve the top spot on this list. I mean, they are heavy, but just, really, they are a repeat of bands that came before them with Satanic album names and stuff. That does not make a band heavy. Just loud.
But People= Sh*t is much louder than Hell Awaits. And heavier, also with better vocals. Slipknot's music actually has a meaning, unlike Slayer's senseless Satanism inspired singing. That is pointless, and, if a song has no meaning, it cannot be heavy. Heaviness is the result of lyrics and music that has a dark meaning. Slayer has no meaning, and, is just noise. To qualify as heavy, you ave to have a brutal MEANING, not just sound effects without a meaning. Slayer has no purpose, and therefore, is without meaning. Meaning is the key to heaviness, because heaviness is not just loudness, Slayer has no heaviness. IF heaviness was merely loudness, Slipknot would (still) be heavier because it is also usually louder.
Listen to Surfacing, Eyeless, (Sic), Purity, Pulse of the Maggots, Three Nil, AOV, Skeptic, Lech, and every song on the Iowa album. Try to tell me they are not heavy then!
I love slipknot and when I get older I will show my children this band. When I first heard of slipknot I was already addicted to it... I found after slipknot, betraying the martyrs and I love them too. Then after them I found dead by April... Their music sounds a little like dubstep n the beginning and I love them. The first song I heard by slipknot-psychosocial
Betraying the martyrs- let it go
Dead by april-beautiful nightmare
Also I like black veil brides and the first song I heard by them was in the end... Mine and my girlfriends song by them is rebel love song but ita not really metal
Who ever put them on is a metal poser, they are not heavy, listen to songs like snuff, dead memories, duality, I love slipknot but they are not heavy enough and do not deserve the number 9 spotV 61 Comments
My Fears Have Become Phobias
Metallica's the best, followed by Megadeth, but neither can compare to Exodus' new stuff when it comes to heavy! Lamb of God doesn't compare, Slayer compares, but doesn't win, and no offense to Maiden and Priest, but they aren't that heavy!
Kirk Hammet from Metallica used to be is exodus... That should tell us something... - metalmaster
Just listen to songs like no love and a lesson in violence
Ps why is linkin park on here
Yet again, another band that doesn't belong on the list in regards to heaviness
They are barely even metal.
Amazing band, but the highest I'd give them on this list would be MAYBE #500. And that'd be generous.
This great band should be in the 20's.
Why is Slayer number one?
Again, just because they're an excellent band does not automatically make them one of the heaviest band. You could fill a list of 200+ heavier bands before putting Alice in Chains on the list
Their self-titled album is so heavy that it will crush the earth's core, Cantrell's Tony Iommi inspired earth-crushing doom-laden riffs are impeccable.
Dirt, the third cd release, second album is an epic soul crushing album from start to finish. It shows all the colors of the band in one album. Most of the lyrics of all Alice in chains songs go into depth about Layne Staleys drug addiction. The deeper it goes the heavier it seemed to get when Layne was alive. The self titled album is the deepest it goes. With songs like sludge factory and grind. The older albums are the real Alice in chains. The new albums don't prove anything about the band.
Their screams on Prowler in the Yard sound like a demented pig being tortured. When I listen to them, I picture a guy behind bars wearing a pig mask with blood pouring out of his mouth going crazy trying to get out. They are by far the most brutal band out there.
All of you that have made it this far on the list. This is #1, it must've been misplaced.
Top ten heavy pig destroyer shred your soul into shrapnel with their depraved murderous grind.
THIS IS THE HEAVIEST METAL BAND...
JUST CHECKOUT THE SONG.."PISS ANGEL"...IT IS THE HEAVIEST SONG ON THIS PLANET, ACCORDING TO ME...
OTHER SONGS TOO ARE HEAVY AS HELL...!
Metallica? Iron maiden? Avenged Sevenfold? They are not heavy at all! Whitechapel is real heavy music...
I'm pretty sure most people on this list don't even know what heavy is. Metallica and Iron Maiden are great but there are so many bands heavier than them...like Whitechapel.
They are heaviest than all that bands at the top ten. Should be a lot higher.
Whitechapel sure is heavy as hell!V 1 Comment
Death metal and black metal are the heaviest
Cradle definitely has the best vocal of all metal bands I've ever listened to. The music is also exciting compared to many other bands as their variety is big in between the albums and they've got so much going for them. And most importantly, all the elements they put into their music goes so wonderfully well together. Few bands has that.
