The Contenders: Page 8

141 Bathory Bathory Bathory was a Swedish Black/Viking Metal band formed in 1983 by Quorthon and Jonas Åkerlund. Bathory's first 4 albums layed the blueprint for Scandinavian Black Metal. Quorthon is often credited with creating the "shrieking" vocal style of Black Metal. Their 5th album, Hammerheart (1990) displayed more.
142 Pathology Pathology Pathology is an American brutal/slam death metal band from San Diego, California, formed in 2006 by drummer Dave Astor (formerly of Cattle Decapitation and The Locust.) And vocalist Matti Way (also of Abominable Putridity.)

Underrated but amazing death metal band - Gamarax537

143 Revenge
144 Attack Attack!

Not THE BEST band you'll ever hear, but they can be heavy at times. The thing I like about them the most is that they stay faithful to Jesus. Awesome band.

145 Antestor

This list is absolutely appalling. The fact that Metallica somehow holds the number one spot is somewhat disheartening. How Cannibal Corpse is lower then Avenged Sevenfold is confusing. Don't let the fact that Antestor is Christian detract from their heaviness. They are one solid band.

Nickel back annihilates my skull and makes my ears bleed with their incredible melodic heaviness

This list is ridiculous. Look I like Metallica and a7x but antestor are WAY heavier. They're black metal for Pete's sake I mean come on. And why is nickel back on this list? They aren't even metal!

The Defeat Of Satan yes, but later albums were not heavy. - GREYBOYY

Is heavier than the top 15 at least

Hatebreed are the heavy kings of victory records.

Agreed. 120 is a joke

157 Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails is an American industrial rock/metal band and, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio.

Nine Inch Nails? The heaviest? Listen to Strapping Young Lad. Those guys make NIN sound as if they were One Direction!

Nine Inch Nails don't even belong in the Top 300 in regards to heaviest bands ever

Want proof? Listen to March of the Pigs or Mr. Self Destruct.

158 Kahtmayan
159 Neurosis Neurosis Neurosis is a post-metal band, based in Oakland, California. They formed in 1985 as a hardcore punk band, and their sound progressed towards a doom metal style that also included influences from dark ambient and industrial music as well as incorporating elements of folk music.

Scott Kelly's voice alone is heavier than 90% of every other band out there
