Best Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 12
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?V 1 Comment
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.V 1 Comment
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.V 4 Comments
Really you think The Best should be down here. Terrible. You do not know and for goodness sake Van Halen is not a metal band
Van Halen aren't metal, but definitely Leppard are? I choose not to entertain that splitting of hairs. All Hail Cock Rock!
Love their music but with the exception of their first. Album, which was awesome, I wouldn't consider them to be metal
Definitely Leppard is far from metal. Their first album, sure, but they turned to hard rock/pop rock ever sinceV 3 Comments
Please vote for this band if you love metal... N this band should be at least top 10V 1 Comment
Holy crap slipknot and linkin park on the list but no Down.
Nola is amazing.
Yes, weed smokers unite. Nola is excellent. A veritable, literal stoner rock supergroup.
They're better than slipknot.
Why isn't mushroomhead on the list
This is an outrage!
Still in loveV 2 Comments
Maybe is heavy metal but metal is always metal
Most underrated band ever!
This band should at least be in top 20! They are the only metalband who wone one of music's greatest prizes, Eurovision!
Worst band of all time. Horrible people, horrible lyrics, horrible look. You can't sink lower than this in music.
True Norwegian Black Metal!
It is the death metal band from Nepal... It is the very best band among Nepali people now a days

Technical Death Metal Epic band from NepalV 1 Comment
Absolutely the greatest metal band with their own sub genre! And all their albums are different so lot's of great songs, an brilliant song writing! Turisas deserves the first place!
Turisas are unique, down to earth, intelligent musicians with a great atitude off and on stage. The music is beautiful, epic and inovative. A lot of bands tend to do what already exists, but they always do something different and try to surprise us.
Good songs... (keep in mind that this is a solo project for Richard Z. Kruspe the main guitarist of Rammstien. )V 1 Comment
222? How are they higher than Skillet? I mean, I like them better than Skillet, but I thought Skillet was huge! They've headed Winter Jam before! TWICE!
Thousand foot krutch is one of the best metal bands after (the art of breaking) they were more into rock but the first three albums were just masterpieces.listen to themV 3 Comments
Well Focus was the best prog/death album going round, but those young upstarts Between the Buried and Me laid waste to that claim
Focus is the best prog/death album going round.V 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
