301 Running Wild Running Wild

I can see that all of you do not know anything about music. I was Iron Maiden's fan for a lot of years and I could see that there isn't another band which can be so awesome. Until the time which found Running Wild. This moment I realise that there is another one perfect band like Iron Maiden. Now Running Wild and Iron Maiden is at the same place in my heart. And do you know why? Very simple you can recognise that if you hear this band. If you want Power-Pirate Metal you will find it on Running Wild. With very fast and awesome melodies. Running Wild's Song are so perfect like Iron Maiden's. Just hear them, and you will remember me!

Power Pirate Metal? Damn, I'm there!

Running wild is second on my personal top 10 metal bands right after Iron Maiden. I recommend Running Wild old and best albums like port royal, death or glory, black hand in, Pile of skulls and fast style Masquerade album to all lowers of melodic power or heavy metal.
I can't believe this band is so unknown that it ends on the end of list

303 Red Red Red is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002. The band's lineup consists of singer Michael Barnes, guitarist Anthony Armstrong, and bassist Randy Armstrong.

For sure, if everyone knew about Red, it would not only be in the top 100 but the top 10, or at least a close runner-up. If you haven't heard Red, go listen to them now before you waste any more of your life. There's too much to be said about Red for me to say here, so go find out for yourself.

They are my favorite Metal band ever!

RED is amazing look them up

304 High On Fire High On Fire High on Fire is an American heavy metal band from Oakland, California, that was formed in 1998. Matt Pike, the band's frontman and founder, also plays guitar for the influential stoner doom band Sleep.

Do you people even know what Metal is? This band personifies Metal!

They sit high on the mountain of metal. AND THEY'RE ON FIRE.

Should be in the top ten along with Mastodon. Pure rampaging power.

First three albums are the greatest metal albums ever made.

What are you people on? Beartooth are epic!

They're a toothless tiger.

I've listened to a lot of music over the years and beartooths debut album is one of the greatest debuts I have ever heard.

310 Stone Sour Stone Sour Stone Sour is an American rock band formed in Des Moines, Iowa in 1992, performing for five years, before disbanding in 1997. They reunited in 2000 and since 2006, the group has consisted of Corey Taylor, Josh Rand and Roy Mayorga.

Well slipknot is on the list why isn't stone sour

Damn straight. No masks, just stand and deliver metal. Personally, these guys mop the floor with Slipknot.

311 Vader Vader Vader is a Polish death metal band from Olsztyn. Formed in 1983, the group was founded by then-bassist Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek and guitarist Zbigniew "Vika" Wróblewski. Starting as a heavy metal group, Vader eventually went to thrash, speed, and then in the late 1980s became a death metal band. The more.

Wait they wern't on the list before wow people don't know whats good if bands like A7X and System of a Down are on this list they aren't even Metal - christangrant

312 Al-Namrood

I think they deserve to be known. If these dudes get caught by the Saudi Arabian government they could face severe punishment. They risk being in prison for the rest of there lives or even DEATH for there music. There are many bands like Metallica, disturbed and Avenged sevenfold that make better music then them. But there bravery is really amazing!

313 Statues
314 Hevisaurus Hevisaurus

Way better than Kidz Bop!

From the picture, you can tell its stupid. Just cause they dress as "devil dinosaurs" doesn't mean they're great. - KingofSnails42

315 Bridgefallen Prophecy
316 Jane's Addiction Jane's Addiction Jane's Addiction is an American rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 1985. The band consists of Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Stephen Perkins and Chris Chaney.

I liked them, but are they metal? Sheesh! I'll have to drag out Ned's Atomic Dustbin as well.

317 Paradise Lost Paradise Lost Paradise Lost are a gothic metal band that formed in 1988 in Halifax, England and are considered by some to be one of the pioneers of the death/doom genre and of the gothic metal genre.

Because they helped to pioneer the beauty and the beast vocals and gothic metal and I think they should be in the top 30 or higher

ONE OF THE BEST METAL BANDS - period. Do yourself a favour and listen to these guys. Just AWESOME!

Yes. I recently purchased their live dvd, and it's good. Long overdue.

What the hell happened to this band popularity wise? I remember they were huge in the 90s and early 00s. They even played their stuff on MTV. I can't believe that crap band Katatonia, who said themselves that they were influenced by this band, and that soulless wank rubbish band Opeth are rated higher. Icon and Draconion Times are essential albims.

318 Lacuna Coil Lacuna Coil Lacuna Coil is an Italian metal band from Milan. Since their formation in 1994, the group has had two name changes, being previously known as Sleep of Right and Ethereal.

Invite this woman over, have a drink, warm her up, and give it to that lovely Scabbia green-eyed brunette a solid thrashing. Take out home and contents insurance beforehand though, because when she's screaming she'll break every bit if glassware and window in your house. Worth every penny though, no doubt.

I must bed this woman. What a lovely brunette she is, and she can sing the house down.

319 My Dying Bride My Dying Bride My Dying Bride are an English doom metal band formed in Bradford, England in 1990. To date, My Dying Bride have released twelve full-length studio albums, three EPs, one demo, one box set, four compilation albums, one live album, and one live CD/DVD release.

They are the greatest band ever. They can be crushingly heavy, melodic, atmospheric and the quality of the musicianship is phenomenal. They should get a lot more recognition than they currently get. Love this band!

My wine in silence, two winters only, the dreadful hours the best songs you can ever hear - sam998

No need for too meant special effects, bring tears to me.

One word awesome.
