Best Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 10
Savatage is the best band ever... Why is it 86th? Great lyrics.. Great voice.. Great sound. Too bad there are not together anymore. Zach has a great voice.
Chris Caffery plays some of the best metal riffs ever, at least in my opinion. Not to mention you can actually understand most of their lyrics. - SamRaven2
This is one of those gems that gets passed over and over. The band in any configuration were and still are some of the most talented musicians in the world!
One of the most underrated bands of all time...V 26 Comments
Some one had to and they are an amazing band x
This one of the greatest rock band in the history of music..
They were great in the late '80s, early '90s
The best glam metal band - SoldierOfFortuneV 4 Comments
Queensryche is the greatest! Mostly before they lost Chris Degarmo but whatever... Geoff tate has wonderful vocals and range. Listen to Queen of the reich then listen to Silent lucidity that's pretty much how wide of a range this guy has. Oh yeah also operation mindcrime was their best album!
Mindcrime has got to get SOME love! - suhlevy
Yes! A mighty prog metal outfit. I'd go do far as to say 'Rage For Order' is their best, despite 'Operation Mindcrime' being one of the greatest albums of all time. 'Empire' broke them commercially, and they were enormous then, but arena rock wasn't Queensryche's place. 'Promised Land' delivered, then the great de Garmo left, and that was it, for me at-least.
Todd is way better sounding than Tate.V 5 Comments
Immortal and many great black metal bands so low?
Black metal legends that are way too low on the list
All Shall Fall is the best song ever.V 1 Comment
If you love both classical music and metal (as I know many metallers do), you will find Apocalyptica absolutely great and original. How many metal bands are there that just use cellos and kick ass? I wouldn't dare putting them on the top ten places, as they are way too eccentric to common understanding of metal, ok. Yet they are brilliant in their kind. It's a shame that they stand at place 96, so grossly underrated.
How about Kronos Quartet? Their soundtrack to Requiem For A Dream is even more unnerving than the movie.
This is hands down one of the better of the new bands of the past decade the burning halo really showed that this highly talented band is looking to take over the goth/doom metal crowd I would say they are the best goth metal doom metal band out there bar none. - the_winds_of_mayhem
Draconian is the best GOTHIC/DOOM METAL band - Angra-Mainyu
They're better than slipknot.
Why isn't mushroomhead on the list
This is an outrage!
Still in loveV 2 Comments
Um, listen to their debut and 'The Dark' and you'll see what could have been for this band. David Wayne's departure didn't spell extinction, but it prevented them from being a mighty stadium metal band.
Amazing band! Listen to Badlands and you'll see. - Songsta41
They have a lot of excellent albums - Sabbath
I fell in love with this band the first time I heard one of their songs. Every single one of their songs has genuine lyrics and very catchy music. By far one of my favorite bands. They're right up their with Memphis May Fire :D
Damn! Even I have to admit that I like this boy band if Metalcore. They're puerile, sickeningly positive, and everything I loathe. Yet, when I put 'Understanding What We've Grown To Be' in the tray, it's just so heavy and catchy, that I can't help myself. I even have their dvd. I'm a moral disgrace.
This band is the greates band in the world I they have really good lyrics to all there songsV 1 Comment
Keelhauled, Sunset on the Golden Age, Leviathan, Captain Morgan's Revenge, Chronicles of Vengeance... I could list every song by them. They're all fantastic.
Three words: Scottish pirate metal.
I agree, these guys are awesome!
Very good!V 5 Comments
Europe's answer to AC/DC, though 'Headhunter' was light metal. I bought that with my allowance when I was 12. Sue me.
Hell yeah. 'Headhunter' was the business. One of my first. 'Eat the Rich' is great.
Perfect blend of speed and thrash metal like motorhead, sodom, slayer and early Metallica, with punk like bad brains nofx elements in it, and black thrash vocals similar to sodom, kreator. Perfection
Great band. Also to the other guy who commented here; they are not black metal! They are symphonic deathcore with strong black metal influence. Also I agree that they should be ahead of BVB, who suck, but Twisted Sister is actually decent unlike BVB, so they shouldn't be ahead of them because of their influence on metal.
Instrumentally they are black metal but with the vocals and ferocity of deathcore. These guys are way more talented than crappy bands above them like BVB and Twisted SisterV 1 Comment
Um... Is this even a question? It's like taking rap, which is garbage, and adding heavy ass metal to it, making it not garbage. If you can fix garbage, you're pretty ' good!
Well, the worst band on the planet, Limp Bizkit, combined...wait...garbage with garbage. My bad.
Hardcore? Sick beats? I'll throw on my Vanilla Ice happy pants and techno the night away with ya' like it was 1990. Awesome!
These guys are hardcore, have sick beats, and overall are awesome!V 1 Comment
