Best Live Metal BandsMetalFoREVer1228
The Top Ten
Number of the beast played live in donington, (can be found on iTunes) is perhaps their best live song they've ever done. the original is not that good, I was never a fan of it. but this version is downright excellence.
You people either can't afford to see them or are too busy listening to nickelback and skillet to see a real show like iron maiden.
Maiden, Rammstein, Metallica and Slipknot would be the best 4 I've seen, suppose the likes of Avenged and Linkin Oark were good for what they were but the atmosphere in the crowd for the 4 I mentioned is just insane.
There's Maiden and there's everything elseV 8 Comments
Rammstein, known for their amazing pyrotechnic and stage stunts like on-stage fights and Till putting the keyboardist in a huge boiling pit and cooking him with a flame thrower, like how are they not the best one on the list?
Rammstein and Iron Maiden should be higher then Avenged Sevenfold. Avenged Sevenfold is good but not as good as rammstein or iron maiden
Rammstein never disappoints. Their live performances are amazing and insane, nobody does fire the way they do!
Should be number one!V 21 Comments
They get me. I know all of their songs, what else can you want from your crowd if it isn't that they vibe with all of your songs and know them all
VERY technical musicians. It is Worth some respect and appreciation.
All their live performance are bestV 2 Comments
Most passionate live band I've ever seen. Best sound quality and balance of any band I've ever heard live. Pyro, effects, interaction with the crowd is absolutely priceless. I'm getting emotional just thinking about seeing them live!
Absolutely brilliant musicians, and such chemistry between the members, they really engage the crowd especially in Unholy confessions with the pits the song creates, each band member is extremely talented, even with there new drummer they still have the standard they had in the LBC performance with the rev I am really looking forward to seeing them live
Best band with best guitarist (Synyster), best vocal (Matt), and best drummers (The Rev/Sullivan)

They were awarded for best live metal band of 2012.. And I think they deserve it.. Corey's voice is so powerful live... And the performance of the guitarists and drummers are amazing... But also LOG is kick-ass live.. Randy blythe has got one of the most powerful voices ever.. - nooreldeen
You should vote slipknot as they don't let you sleep when they are in your country.
They are just a bad ass band I can't wait to see them this year 2016 at louder then life
Awesome performance every concert is rockingV 7 Comments
I saw Metallica a few days ago and they're still awesome just the fact that they're even still doing this is amazing
Metallica in the 80s were amazing.
Seattle 89 the best live concert

They are really the best - their live versions are as good as their studio versions and in some cases, they even improved the original versions during live performances! Their stuff is not easy - it's complex and some songs are really fast (speed metal).
And the second aspect of their brilliance live is the communication with the crowd. Everybody sings at their shows!
youtube: Blind Guardian - Valhalla (Imaginations Through the Looking Glass)
The crowd is awesome, too, from 4:30-end. - Metal_Treasure
Better than most of their studio stuff and hansi is still ripping it!
Blind guardian live is:
A band that manages to render monster songs such as "and then there was silence" live, without losing any of the essence of the song.
Very high energy and intensity with their faster songs from their back catalogue.
Everyone in the venue singing along to every single chorus. Hansi could even take breaks from singing if he wanted. In fact, with songs such as "the last candle" or "vallhalla", he can actually take a 5 minute break as everyone hollers "vallhalla! Deliverance, why've you ever forgotten me" for 5 minutes, without tiring.
Top notch stage presence: like bards, they know how to tell a story and make people invested in those stories.
So yeah, awesome band, awesome music, awesome presence, and lots and LOTS of killer choruses.
Their live album 'Tokyo Tales' is one of the best metal live albums.

This is my idea of how a metal singer should sound live. - Metal_Treasure
Randy Blythe can pump up the crowds so much it is just insane. Lamb of God is the best band ever - heavymetalrocker777
Just like the albums
They have so much energy when they play live. I've seen them live and it was one of the best experiences of my life. - MetalFoREVer1228
Watch them and judge by yourself, perfectly flawless!
Deftones put so much heart and soul into their live performances especially mixed with kinetic energy and Chino Moreno as their frontman.
Saw them live at Sonisphere, as much as I adore their music it was the most boring and rubbish live show I've ever seen.
By far the best on the list
Did see maiden and priest together in Dortmund Germany.Dickinson was great but Halford was beyond belief
JUDAS PRIEST - Victim of Changes! “.. just wow! ” [HDadv] [1080p] 1983 - Metal_Treasure
Amazing atmosphere, Tim Lambesis still today is one of the best frontmen out there
Slayer live was an incredible experience. I urge everyone to see them if you get the chance - ryanrimmel
Slayer has so much energy put into their live concerts
Best live band ever
Slayer don't stop...
I just missed out on a chance to see Gwar. Every concert they do, they "kill" some sort of politician or celebrity. These guys are hilarious - ryanrimmel
Loved them in concert both times I've went. Adam is absolutely hilarious on stage
insane live, so much passion and energy!
Dude really? Its korn.
Come on guys, its Korn
There music just generates live like no other m:
