Best Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 11
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
Talk about typos. I couldn't be bothered correcting them. You get the drift.
Normally I'd vote for the criminally underrated Dream Theater but they're much higher on the list and Queensryche deserves a bump up.
Operation:Mindcrime is a amazing prog-metal rock oper,how is this band so low on the list!?
The great Quuensryche. From the progressive NWOBHM of their debut ep and album to the electronic progressive metal on Rage For Ordrr to their recognised guitar driven masterpiece Operstion Minfcrime, to commercial success on Empite to their final album with the excellent Chris DeGarmo on Promised Land, these guys meant business.
It's hard to keep re-iterating this, but apart from the generation-spanning greats like Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Maiden, Sabbath etc. You'll notice how the list gets better and better as you go. It's a generational issue, and this is not a Miss Universe pageant, and this thread is also a great tool for educating the younger generation on bands they aren't aware of. If 20 kids dig Katatonia after reading this then I say good.
What in the world? If you people don't think that Katatonia is good then you obviously don't know great music. Honestly? I am very appalled at this. It makes absolutely no sense for them to be this low.
Yes! My word these depressing giants are good. 'The Great Cold Distance' is fantastic - 'July' particularly.
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...
'Wisconsin Death Trip' was a winner for me, the rest? Take it or leave it.
Be'lakor should be at least top 50, they are technical very good and one of the few bands that have 0 songs that I dislike, they make such beautiful and breathtaking music, which they perfectly combine with death metal.
Try Aspect & Countless sky.. I hope you all will understand what I wanna say..
Sun's delusion and Outlive the hand are 2 of my favourite be'lakor songs - Amarth666V 1 Comment
Finest Old-School Death Metal with a melodic twist in it. Their sound is very unique and incredibly awesome! If you like Death Metal you will love "An Anatomy Of The Beast" and if you are more into Melodic Death Metal listen to "Banquet In The Darkness"! - Flav
My favorite Grind Core band.
Ahhh oookay carcass is 147 while linking park is top 20 :D
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!
