Best Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 12
One of the best bands ever!
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
I love their music, even though I can't understand anything they say
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.
I'll dance with the angels to celebrate the holocaust

These guys belong in the top 20 for sure. What the Hell! Jeff Waters is a remarkable guitarist.
In my opinion the best live performances in the world and they are 287 people you have no idea what metal means...
I can't believe my eyes - this awesome band at #243? - Metal_Treasure
Not actually my favourite but I'm giving them the vote because my favurites are already in top 10. - KinaivanV 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
They're better than slipknot.
Why isn't mushroomhead on the list
This is an outrage!
Still in loveV 2 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
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
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.
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!
