The best glam metal band - SoldierOfFortuneV 4 Comments
These guys and girls should be at the top of this list. (444 as of this post) The backing group are some of the most talented musicians to come out of Japan or anywhere else, for that matter. The girls are unbelievable performers considering their age. The real magic happens at their live performances. They just rock! Go Su-Metal!
Their unique approach and various challenges to many types of metal music have created many opportunities to start listening to metal musics for younger generations, and they should be more popular for the future of metal music!
Unique and refreshing, though some like to write them off as a gimmick, over the years however they have proven that they are here to stay and are steadily gaining fans and respect, even in the sometimes harsh Metal community. Big names like Rob Zombie, Metallica and Rob Halford(Judas Priest) have expressed their support for this new phenomenon.
Yes, BABYMETAL is not "purely metal" but that doesn't take anything away from it's charm. Their music is refreshing, bringing heavy metal music together with "kawaii" as the girls have explained. And their live shows are just amazing. Seeing them live is definitely on my bucket list. If you haven't yet listened to them: Just embrace the kawaii. KITSUNE UP!V 18 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
They're amazing. Songs, lyrics, especially lyrics and Ronnie's screams... - Marvel_1William
Best modern rock band - Marvel_1William
HAHAAHA! Are you serious?
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
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.
Who was the stupid who put this here... A yes, they a have a lobotomy! In My Live I Ever Heard So Crappy Bored Commercial Stupidity Joke Of Music And Greedy Losers, this is not fusion of music Amaranthe is an excretion of sounds for making money...
Have you peole even seen the light. This is the best metal band and the best band overall. I had to add this to the list it's a shame how underrated they are! Go listen to the Nexus and Afterlife and your perspective on metal will be changed forever!
Modern Metal Sound
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
Punk? Metal? What's the difference? :-) - TinU
Should be so much higher! The unique blend of power metal and Symphonic sets Kamelot so much farther above where they've been ranked on this list.
You have got to be kidding me?! This has got to be a joke! They have got to be in the top 25! - Raya
They need to beside sonata on the list it's a shame that they or so low at this time
Such a great band...V 10 Comments
