Graham Bonnet on vocals - the best voice in music

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

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

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

Way, way, way too low. Seriously man, top ten band right here.

Extremely technical band. 7 Beat time signatures. Pure brutality.

327 Wovenwar

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.

329 Evergrey

Sweden's best progressive metal band - particularly their first 5 albums. Chugging riffs, melodic as, and classy as. Queensryche aside, the thinking man's metal band. From 'In Search of Truth' on, this mob were on fire. They may already be up here, and would be surprised if they weren't.

Attention! If you don't own Evergrey's album The Inner Circle your progressive metal collection is incomplete. Do you want me to personally sell my copy to you? These guys are Queensryche on steroids.

527? You guys don't know what you're missing. This thread should read in reverse order. Top quality thread, by the way. You'll have to hire IT staff soon just to maintain it.

Best band on the planet at this point in time!

330 Primus Primus Primus is an American rock band based in San Francisco, California, currently composed of bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander. Les Claypool is regarded as one of the best bassists of all time for his slap-bass ability in notable songs like "My Name Is Mud", "The Toys more.

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!

332 Soilwork Soilwork Soilwork is a Swedish melodic death metal band from Helsingborg. They are signed to Nuclear Blast. Formed in late 1995 by Björn Strid and Peter Wichers, originally under the name Inferior Breed, the band changed their name in late 1996 to Soilwork.

I love their perfect mix of screaming and singing, it takes so much effort to do that! It is sad that I have to put Soilwork on this list! At least it is actually metal unlike Three Days Grace and Linkin Park!

333 Melvins Melvins The Melvins are an American band that formed in 1983. They usually perform as a trio, but in recent years have performed as a four piece with two drummers.

Sludge Metal at its finest. - Kfox101

Grunge grunge grunge

334 Queensrÿche

Talk about typos. I couldn't be bothered correcting them. You get the drift.

The great Quuensryche. From the progressive NWOBHM of their debut ep and album to the electronic progressive metal on Rage For Ordrr to their recognised guitar driven masterpiece Operstion Minfcrime, to commercial success on Empite to their final album with the excellent Chris DeGarmo on Promised Land, these guys meant business.

335 Hed P.E.
336 Bolt Thrower

Awesome death metal band, the relentless drive of their rhythm section, such mouth watering heavy riffs, you really feel like you have had your head pummeled in after listening to these guys (and in a good way). They have a way of really firing you up with their style of riffs and intensity, great to listen to before participating in sport or something like that, you feel you can take anyone on after a bolt thrower rev up!
