The Top Ten
Alternative/Nu Metal band from America. We all knew they'd be here. The names and faces are well known by everybody, but they wear masks for an effect of some sort. - ryanrimmel
This list is rigid! Slipknot at no. 3? Slipknot is one of the best metal bands EVER! Since 2005, they're are the best metal band.
@visitor I don't hate slipknot, they just aren't my style. They have some good songs though - ryanrimmel
By far the best masked bandV 3 Comments
Traditional Heavy Metal/Doom Metal band from Sweden. The lead singer is a demonic anti-pope while the instrumentalists wear masks and hoods. The names/faces remain a mystery, but the band gained attention from Dave Grohl, who became a session drummer, producer and maybe even a live drummer. - ryanrimmel
They should be number 1 way better than Slipknot
As one YouTube commenter said: "While most modern metal bands these days are either extreme technical brutal death metal, or core core core core to the max core, that had to be at least one band that fit in the spot of traditional heavy metal and that band is Ghost [B.C.]" - ryanrimmel
Progressive Avant-Garde Metal. He is known for a white mask and a KFC bucket on his head, while shredding for hours at a time. - ryanrimmel
The mask he wears is a Michael Myers mask from Halloween.
This is not a Michael Myers mask
Alternative/Industrial/Nu Metal from America. Like Slipknot, they simply wear masks for shock value. - ryanrimmel
Such an explosive band! Although they have been knocking around a while they don't get the love they deserve!
Thrash Metal/Comedy/Shock Metal from America. They dress like aliens and often "kill" celebrities on stage. - ryanrimmel
GWAR dominates this list! All these other bands must kneel before the all mighty GWAR!
Traditional Heavy Metal/Shock Metal from Finland. They lean on a Hard Rock/Heavy Metal sound, with a use of horror lyrics and pyrotechnics - ryanrimmel
They're a great band, and they helped get me into heavy metal. They're also the reason why I'm obsessed with wearing masks!
Thrash/Death Metal band from America. They wear bags over their heads and play an aggressive, evil sounding blend of Thrash and Death. - ryanrimmel
Grindcore/Mathcore/Noise Metal Band. They are very experimental, with some grindcore albums, some noise rock albums, and a mathcore album. - ryanrimmel
I love Hollywood Undead they are awesome.
Hollywood Undead is The best!
Best rap rock band
I'll be a keyboard warrior and say that Immortal isn't "masked", they just wear corpse paint - ryanrimmel
I hear people saying they are the worst metal band of all time but I, personally, think they are good; songs like dig, not falling, happy? , and world so cold are what grabbed my attention from this band, if you are interested, check them out! Also they change costumes sometimes, so if you are one of those people who think they should stick with their original costumes, look over it I guess? Really they are very good if you can get into their unique screams and guitar shreds.
British death metal cover band who specialize in covering pop songs.
The band adopted wearing masks as it was felt that a masked appearance would fit in well with the idea of playing covers. And with the band name, of course.
My favorite covers that put a smile on my face: Stayin' Alive (Bee Gees), Hot Stuff (Donna Summer). - Metal_Treasure
Batushka is an Insanely good occult/black metal band from Poland. Definitely worth checking out!
