Top Ten Metal Bands for People Who Don't Like MetalCannibalCorpse
The Contenders: Page 2
How stupid. They don't like metal so you offer them a more extreme metal band? Makes sense - EvilAngel
Dead memories is perfect for a non metal fan
Most stuff is guttural hardcore metal that scares most folks off... if they can even get past the haunting masks... quite theatrical and great musicianship. However they do have more melodic songs, like Dead Memories, that are perfect for my tastes. Pick and choose on iTunes before buying a full album.
Not that Slipknot is the most accessible band (Albeit there are some really soft (And I mean Alternative Rock sounding) songs in their catalog).
However, in terms of bands with harsh vocals, Slipknot is probably your best bet. And unknowingly, the band "might" help you get into Death Metal. Not saying Slipknot plays Death Metal, although there is a strong influence on some songs based on that sub-genre, when preparing yourself for bands like Death, Morbid Angel and Amon Amarth, Slipknot will help to get you on that root (hopefully). - CrimsonShark
I am not sure a typical pop fan would like them. Blind Guardian songs are too complex for the most part, with too much symphonic arrangements. Another problem would be their dense sound - the overlapping vocal harmonies make your ears process too many notes per second. From my experience, lyrics are also a problem because people say they don't understand what Blind Guardian are talking about. Typical pop fans would like something simple and generic. - Metal_Treasure
These guys made songs based on books. They are automatically the best. - Merilille
You like the middle ages or fantasy stories?
Rpgs like THE ELDER SCROLLS?
A dragon is your pet?
Farewell my friend, Blind Guardian shall be
the band you'll love! - CannibalCorpse
J-POP mixed with Nu metallish style and electronica?
I know it's weird but it's kind of cool.
They play kawaii metal and they do "party songs".
It's hard to describe the style.
Just watch the videos from their song
Nippon means Japan in Japanese - CannibalCorpse
What makes them NOT metal? They were pioneers during the metal birth, along with Zeppelin and Sabbath, and like them, had a unique sound and the greatest metal keyboardist in John Lord.
Yes they have poppy hits in the 70s everyone knows and are good for noobies and guitar wannabes, but Perfect Strangers was my real intro and brings a dark crunchy edge and the album has good clever humor too (Knockin on Back Door). Rock Hall in 2016, finally.
Musical ability of the members is that enough
Technically not metal, but they are still good.
Everyone likes alternative music, helmet is great - ryanrimmel
BMTH is not a metal you uneducated
Awesome band! This band got me into metal! - Pegasister12
Howards voice is...AMAZING!
Ever listened to "the arms of sorrow"?
Hurry up and listen to it!
It is wonderful - CannibalCorpse
No. Slayer is one of the more extreme thrash metal bands like Kreator. - Lucretia
Terrible and pop rock - Lucretia
Noobies should check out what these guys can do covering other artists songs... Duran Duran, Sade, these guys put a great spin on otherwise pop hits, with unique distortion and haunting vocal arrangements.
