Best Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 10
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
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:
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.V 3 Comments
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
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
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. - zxmV 4 Comments
One of the first bands to bring powerful riffs. - zxm
What! This was the band that inspired MetallicaV 2 Comments
What is wrong with you guys, this is a great metal band, dave was a great singer, they have a lot of great songs ( bodies, pity, all over me, sinner, tear away, etc. ) this band must be in top 50
Let the bodies hit the floor.

Welp, they're so low - Neonco31V 2 Comments
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...
