302 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.

303 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.

304 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.

305 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

Great band, I love Primus, but it's not metal.

Primus needs to be the top of every list.

Some of the best bass playing ever

How is Primus not at the Top 30? They pioneered alternative-expirimental metal!

312 Dalriada Dalriada is a folk metal band from Sopron, Hungary that was formed in 1998 as Echo of Dalriada, but shortened their name to Dalriada in late 2006. Their third studio album Kikelet and all subsequent albums were successful in the top ten of the official Mahasz music charts.

Epic folk metal, good live performances, great sound

313 Prototype

Prototype is one of the few great bands, that were never really known. The most they got was a few video games' soundtrack. I heard Prototype first in True Crime: LA. Instant Fan. Then I got to hear their greatest song, The Way It Ends. The speedy riffs, the half-screaming half-yelling vocals, and then came the epic solo by Kragen and one other guitarist. It was just fantastic. They shouldve got more push, though. Really Great, Really Underrated.
