85 Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth are a British extreme metal band that formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band's musical style evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal styles.

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.

86 Skinless Skinless Skinless is an American death metal band. The band formed in 1992 and disbanded in 2011, but reformed in 2013.

This band definitely is not heavier than slayer or iron maiden (sarcasm)

96 Dio Dio Dio was an American heavy metal band formed in 1982 and led by vocalist Ronnie James Dio, after he left Black Sabbath with intentions to form a new band with fellow former Black Sabbath member, drummer Vinny Appice.

In regards to heaviness, Dio are nowhere near the top 100

How good they are should have nothing to do with their place on the list.

A metal god like this guy deserve a much higher rank then this.

98 Testament Testament Testament is an American thrash metal band from Berkeley, California. Formed in 1983 under the name Legacy, the band consists of vocalist Chuck Billy, guitarists Eric Peterson and Alex Skolnick, bassist Steve DiGiorgio and drummer Gene Hoglan.

You can't deny that Testament got heavier over the years. Most bands get mellow over time. Testament should win for raising the bar. Plus, musically their song writing is superior to most. Just listen to Dark Roots Of Earth.

Really heavy and fast. Should be higher up

Listen to the new order.
