182 Anthem
183 Krokus

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.

184 Amaranthe Amaranthe Amaranthe is a Swedish heavy metal band notable for having three lead vocalists: Elize Ryd, Jake E. Lundberg, and Henrik Englund Wilhemsson, each presenting a different vocal style. Their second album, The Nexus, reached 6th on Swedish charts, 4th on Finnish charts, and reached a peak of 12th on the more.

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

185 Toxic Holocaust Toxic Holocaust Toxic Holocaust is an American black/thrash metal band from Portland, Oregon, formed in 1999. The band has gained notoriety among the thrash metal community, and is arguably one of the most popular modern thrash metal bands. Toxic Holocaust also gained attention when their song "Bitch" was featured more.

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

186 Make Them Suffer

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 Sister

187 Attila Attila Attila is an American metalcore band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in 2005. Frontman Chris Fronzak started the band in high school and, not wanting to use typical death metal terms, adopted the name from Attila the Hun, which he came across in a book.

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.

188 Pig Destroyer Pig Destroyer

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!

Punk? Metal? What's the difference? :-) - TinU

191 Keep of Kalessin
192 Deftones Deftones Deftones are an American alternative metal band from Sacramento, California. The band, which was founded in 1988, consists of Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter, Frank Delgado, Abe Cunningham and Sergio Vega.

You have got to be kidding me... I can't even see Deftones on this list as far as I know. This is an outrage. They deserve to at least be in the top 5. If I had to vote the top 5 alt-metal bands today, they would have to be:
1. Deftones/Tool
2. System of a Down
3. Nine Inch Nails
4. Queens of the Stone Age
5. The Fall of Troy
Again, Deftones have better be in the top 10s, or else.

I just have one thing to say. How come one of the greatest metal bands nowadays is in the 193th place in this list. I mean, how is it possible that one of the few bands ever that hasn't one bad song can be in such a bad place.

They are way better than 187th place come on!

One of the best bands ever.

The Norwegian vocalist Roy Khan joined for the album Siége Perilous, and shared songwriting credit with Youngblood until his departure in April 2011. On June 22, 2012, Youngblood announced more.

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

194 Gamma Ray Gamma Ray Gamma Ray is a power metal band from Hamburg, northern Germany, founded and fronted by Kai Hansen after his departure from the German power metal band Helloween.

Kai and crew need to be higher on the list!

A very underrated band that in my personal opinion are better than the metal giants such as Slayer, Megadeth and hell even Black Sabbath

Kai hansen is the good of power metal.

Gamma Ray is a very Creative band

195 Artcell Artcell Artcell is a Bangladeshi progressive metal band formed in October 1999. According to The Daily Star, a leading English national daily, Artcell is "one of the leading bands of the country".

This is a pure metal band. They play progressive metal, all along with other genres of rock. And it is also in the "Encyclopaedia Metallum". So no doubt that they are a metal band. They should be higher than 312. - zxm

I like them more than Metallica. - zxm

199 Mago de Oz

Understanding that these guys will never get as much attention as bigger bands and will often be categorized as "posers" but still whoever that has paid attention to their songs will agree most of the serious ones at least (Atlantia, La Cantata del Diablo, Finisterra) have a Dream Theater-esque appeal mixing Folk and Metal in such a talented way...
