Best Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 18
Epic folk metal, good live performances, great sound
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.V 2 Comments
Not all of their music is perfect, and there are legit criticisms to some of their songs, but songs like Bloody Angel are just haunting to the core, and it may be my favorite song of the decade so far.
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
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!
Way better than Kidz Bop! - SYLFan1234
From the picture, you can tell its stupid. Just cause they dress as "devil dinosaurs" doesn't mean they're great. - KingofSnails42
Very underrated they were one of the first groove metal bands
Yes, it is rumoured Pantera stole their sound, but Pantera made mince meat out of these guys. Quality thrash though.
These guys are pretty much the reason Pantera became popular
one of the greatest metal bands in japan like DEAD END, GASTUNK, 44MAGNUM, THE STALIN, etc - ronluna
Japanese metallers? If so, they had a great guitar sound way back when.
I can listen to Ratt for hours straight because I like every single song they've done. They're another crossover into my hard rock list. Saw them with Stryper, and they were amazing.
You saw Ratt with Stryper? My goodness! Was the crowd all holding hands during this bill of bills? Did you get a missionary position afterwards?
One of the kings of glam. Even I own 'Out of the Cellar'.
George Lynch was a perfect metal guitarist, and Don's vocals matched perfectly. Lynch Mob's 2 albums were great too.
Don's vocals and Jeff's chorus were perfect.
Hey, Lemmy was there for a while, though I doubt I'd classify them as metal.
