421 Lääz Rockit Lääz Rockit Lääz Rockit is a thrash metal band formed in San Francisco, California in 1982. Although one of the lesser-known groups of the Bay Area thrash metal scene, each album in their career has received high critical marks. One of their signature elements were Ibanez guitars adorned with elaborate airbrushed more.

Yes, a lot of people rate them alongside some of the best thrash had to offer. I haven't listened to them in years though. You've jogged my memory though.

422 Windir Windir Windir was a black metal band from Sogndal, Norway. The band combined black metal with folk music and mythology.

Windir is pure Norwegian pride injected straight into the bloodstream. So good...

Should be WAY Higher! Like right after maiden! Windir = Sick! Folk melodies that don't sound cheezy, dark somber keyboard use, meloncholy infused solos, accordian in metal, etc. hell nothing about windir sounds cheezy minus maybe the electronica on the later albums.. Sick clean vocals too...
Number 418? What the hell. WAY too low for a band THIS good... An influence like no other...

Take any other folk metal band that is established and SOMETHING about them will sound cheezy. This applies to any band any country anywhere. Windir is the only one that does NOT do this.

432 Necrorder

Crossover/Hardcore band from memory. Similar to Agnostic Front, I believe. I preferred the latter - and DRI. Correct me if I'm wrong...

436 Pitchshifter
437 Undivide
438 Whitechapel Whitechapel Whitechapel is an American deathcore band from Knoxville, Tennessee. The band is named after the Whitechapel district in East London, England, referencing the series of murders committed by Jack the Ripper.

This band should be at least in the top tens
