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

210 Sealed Our Fate

These guys are awesome! In fact, they are even playing with Chelsea Grin this year! They are technically post-hardcore, but their sound is very unique, definitely give them a listen

211 Stam1na

I love their music, even though I can't understand anything they say

212 Great White
213 Head Phones President

215 Alter Bridge Alter Bridge Alter Bridge is an American rock band from Orlando, Florida, formed in 2004. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Myles Kennedy, lead guitarist and backing vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.

Alter bridge is one if those bands some people will always say isn't metal, but with the release of fortress, along with some of their older songs, such as metalingus and ties that bind, alter bridge has released numerous amazing metal songs. Between the legendary voice of myles kennedy and the godlike guitar skill of Mark Tremonti, this band merits a good look through. I'm not one to say that the higher ranking bands are trash, or that I'm outraged that my favorite band is so low, but what I will say is that anyone who is a fan of metal ought to give Alter Bridge a try!

They're not exclusive to metal, but have some of that as well. All of their songs are amazing!

Yeah, they're a great alternative rock band that can verge on heavy. Quality band.

216 Anathema

I'll dance with the angels to celebrate the holocaust

They put allot of music in their songs. I never knew metal could be played with such virtuosity.

Godlike, the music that animates every concert. Lets drink and enjoy

Power, Sympho, Gothic, and Folk metal people, know which top should they be. Talking about Folk... Where is Moonsorrow?

219 Deathstars

I am completely pissed that Deathstars is this low on the list. I think they have earned to be higher on this list. They are honestly the best metal band I have heard. Everything that they put into their songs is perfection. The way the singer sings the songs and the sound of guitars is complete perfection. I have only started to listen to this band for a few months now and I have listened to all of their songs for a total of probably 24 hours. Cyanide is the best song ever made.

220 Dir en grey Dir en grey DIR EN GREY is a Japanese metal band formed in 1997 and currently signed to Firewall Div., a sub-division of Free-Will.

What world do we live in today where dir en grey is number 42 Metallica I only like their stuff from the 90's the rest sucks vote for dir en grey its the best band ever. Oh and how is nirvana metal what that's just weird

A few of these positions come at shock. Dream Theater at 14th is one of them but Dir en grey at 42nd, now that isn't right.

WHY IS DIR EN GREY SO LOW ON THIS LIST? They deserve to be in the top15. Kyo is the best singer I ever heard. They are better than bullet for my valentine and Linkin Park. And by the way, Dream Theater is better than slipknot or Metallica.How can people put slipknot 10th place but put Dimmu Borgir or Opeth below the 20th place.Slipknot is one of my favorite bands but we need to be more realistic,they haven't as much as some other bands. And please, stop voting for your favorite bands just because you love them. Look further than this.I know people don't look so low on the list, but if you're reading this listen to Dir En Grey and dream theater and then vote. They are two of the most melodic bands I heard. (After listening to dir en grey songs, read the meaning of the lyrics if you don't understand Japanese)

Kyo's vocal range is legendary and their innovative, experimental style is the first of the entire metal genre.
