Greatest Metal Band of The 2000szack182daley
The Contenders: Page 2
Though every album they released was different from the others, making their discography somewhat of a roller-coaster when it comes to quality, I cannot deny the fact that they did put out great albums like "Shogun", "The Crusade", "Ascendancy", and even the hugely underrated "Vengeance Falls".
Ascendency was the best metal album of the decade, and one of the best since Painkiller. They did have some weaker albums, but their sound was still unbelievable and nothing has topped Ascendency (except maybe A7X's Nightmare)
When the album "In Waves" came out it was the only music I listened to for months. Just listen to "Forsake Not the Dream" before you pass judgement. Incredible!
Shogun is the best album of 2000+ FACT
Best album of metal history since Metallica's "... And justice for all".
They deserve to be in top 10.
Should be higher..
How come Three Days Grace isn't in the top 10 or this entire list as a matter of fact? They deserve the number 1 spot
Three days grace is an amazing band my biggest influence.
Metallica is number 1 than Avenged Sevenfold after disturbed then slipknot next three days grace,Hollywood undead after stone sour then saint asonia
True musicians love the works of Iced Earth...they are the "Journey" of the metal world, Jdas Priest, maiden and many more. They can sing play and make it good...all this growling and 3 note play is for brain dead Nazi's.
Below Metallica, HA! That's a joke, what? , they've released two albums have they, I don't even know. Iron Maiden on the other hand, Brave New World, Dance Of Death, A Matter Of Life And Death and Final Frontier (if you'll consider it). Also, a monster tour recreating the atmosphere of the famous World Slavery Tour, ah Iron Maiden, always thinking of the fans, and that's why they are not only the best band of the decade, but of all time
Still around and you guys don't even consider them? -
What are they doing in 14th position... they should be at the top... After the release of Brave New World, they have never had a bad album... Iron Maiden the best metal band ever...
Should be on top 5, why Avenged Sevenfold is first?V 4 Comments
For being a fictional yet semi-real band, their music is kick-ass.V 1 Comment
So many 12 year old kids on this site wow
Machine Head were boss in the 90's with (especially) "Burn My Eyes" and "The More Things Change", but after venturing into nu metal in the late 90's-early 00's, they kind of redeemed themselves and actually became not only great again, but also very relevant. No one can deny the impact "The Blackening" had in 2007, and the albums after that haven't been too shabby either, if though not as great as some of their past albums.-
Come on... It's about the 2000s, not about bands, which exist since the 80s...
And in the 2000s, the best band metal band is machine head, please listen to the albums unto the locust and blackening, they are awesome.
However, nothing's better than the heavy metal of the 80s
The Blackening was voted Best Metal album of the DECADE. How can they not be higher on this list
Machine Head top 10 of 2000's No questions
This band should be higher they're one of the best selling heavy metal artists of the 2000s
Really? Godsmack deserves to be in the top tens as well as Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Drowning Pool, and SOiL. Sully Erna's vocals rocks the whole world and Tony Rombola's guitar riffs are epic.V 1 Comment
Definitely worthy of this list, Nightwish infuses orchestral sounds with hard pounding riffs and awesome solos. Both eras of vocalists have their own great qualities too.
So many many really good bands left off this list, like nightwish, probably because they were not U.S. bands with labels spending cash to spin their tunes on U.S. radios
They have great composition with operatic approach to metal that sounds gothic, they create nice harmony and poems with meaning
You call this metal? - gemclobenV 2 Comments
The range of this band is unsurpassed. They play 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's in one song and make it seem easy. The biggest surprise of my library.
atreyu should be first one of the best bands I've ever seen I'm my life just amazing
Too good to be mainstream metal.
Done everything from heavy to light... and wellV 2 Comments
Evanescence Should Be At Least Top Ten
34 really they should be at lest in the top 5 so should 5fdp this list is a Joke System of a down isn't even that good - HipeopleV 2 Comments
Its unbelievable what bands people put on this list (most of it being pop rock and screamo bs). Tokio Hotel? What. At least Cannibal Corpse makes some honest and real metal.
One of the 2 best death metal bands, along with children of bodom. - gemcloben
This is one of the only actual metal bands to have been listed here. It's a joke that all these mallcore bands even made it on the list. What has happened to metal?V 1 Comment
Their absolutely amazing! Their music is amazing and beautiful! They are their own inspiration and they do not take others ideas.V 1 Comment
Might as well have pantera on here they released an album in 2000. Better than Metallica by far
Pantera IS metal... Listen to far beyond driven or vulgar display of power and then come back and change your vote to get these guys up.
They need to be higher than 40 come on really all their stuff showed better guitar drum bass and vocal work than cannibal corpse
Pantera is/was/and always will be the face of metal...V 5 Comments
This band released all their stuff in the 1990's. Good band and all but has no place on this particular list.
24? Are you kidding? Top five at least!
