By far THE greatest metal band that I've ever heard! There is really no other band like them. Their sixth album Suffer Our Pleasures is the BEST thing I've ever heard! Marco Hietala, also in Nightwish, formed this band with his brother Zachary. They have nine albums as of 2013, the best being after 2000. They are AWESOME!

384 Descending Chaos

New coming band with a really interesting melodic type of new gothenburg metal sound! Good stuff...

Their style is usually called 'blackgaze' . The San Francisco-based group began as a two-piece with George Clarke and Kerry McCoy, who recorded more.

Deafheaven reachs an irrealistic beauty from heavy chords and scorching screams. - Cdric

387 The Amity Affliction

388 Dying Fetus Dying Fetus Dying Fetus is an American death metal band originally from Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Formed in 1991, the group is known for their consistently hook-laden song structures, characterized by blast beats, complex riffing, slam riffs and heavy breakdowns.
389 Molotov

Really no Molotov just because it's in Spanish doesn't make it any worst than a English speaking band please listen to songs like NO MANCHEN MI VIDA AND JUDGE FOR YOURSELF

390 Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree were an English rock band formed by musician Steven Wilson in 1987. The band began essentially as a solo project for Wilson, who created all of the band's music.

They're prog rock, but Opeth love them, as do many others. Myself included.

393 Fates Warning Fates Warning Fates Warning is an American progressive metal band, formed in 1982 by vocalist John Arch, guitarists Jim Matheos and Victor Arduini, bassist Joe DiBiase, and drummer Steve Zimmerman in Hartford, Connecticut.

I personally think that Fates Warning is one of the most underrated metal bands of all time. They have written what I believe to be some of the greatest metal songs of all time, specifically The Eleventh Hour, Guardian, and the Apparition. If you are an Iron Maiden fan, you'll like their earlier stuff. They then however, went on to become one of the founders of progressive metal and rock like Dream Theater and Queensryche. I personally love them!

394 The Black Dahlia Murder The Black Dahlia Murder The Black Dahlia Murder is an American melodic death metal band from Waterford, Michigan, formed in 2001. Their name is derived from the 1947 unsolved murder of Elizabeth Short, often referred to as Black Dahlia.

This band is the best. How the hell is it at 499?

I had to go through 25 pages and 499 entries just to vote for it

Yes! My cousin is in this band - Scr3aM

How is it possible these guys aren't on here? I went through the whole list and couldn't believe they weren't listed. I was under the impression they were pretty popular.

Straight up death metal. No one does it better. None of that breakdown bull, just straight up pound your brains out death metal. Godly guitar solos, insane drum work, and Trevor Strnad is the best lyricist I've heard in metal. He's like a poet.

Best songs (in my opinion):

Everything Went Black
Deathmask Divine
Blood in the Ink
I Will Return

Best Band In Unparalleled Existence

Is this one for real? I want the dvd.

Ok, I found one of this all girl hardcore act's video clips on Redtube, and their track Scissor Sisters is a 23-minute epic, but I only managed to get about a third of the way thru it. Well made pisstake band from Califiornia, and published by Wicked Music. Golden!

397 Neurosis Neurosis Neurosis is a post-metal band, based in Oakland, California. They formed in 1985 as a hardcore punk band, and their sound progressed towards a doom metal style that also included influences from dark ambient and industrial music as well as incorporating elements of folk music.

Usually, I hate really slow metal bands, but Neurosis is so fun to listen to, that time seems to speed up. - ThatoneMetalhead

398 Dark Angel Dark Angel Dark Angel is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California formed in 1981. Their over-the-top style (extremely fast, heavy and lengthy songs with lots of tempo changes, lyrics and extended instrumental parts) earned them the nickname "the L.A. Caffeine Machine". Although Dark Angel had more.

Production issues aside, 'Darkness Descends', 'Leave Scars', and.'Time does not Heal' were immense. I have their debut somewhere, but forgot what it was called. Gene Hoglan was ferocious on the kit then, and he still is now. Good choice.

399 Cariosus
400 Cryptopsy Cryptopsy Cryptopsy is a Canadian technical death metal band from Montreal, Quebec, formed in 1988. The band has sold over 300,000 records.
