441 Stratovarius Stratovarius Stratovarius is a Finnish power metal band that formed in 1984. Since their formation, they have released 16 studio albums, 4 DVD and 3 live albums.

But Metallica played Euro-thrash in America long before any Euro-thrash/metal band from Europe ever did. Their influence on the likes of Artillery, Destruction etc. was profound. It is quite simply remarkable how unique a talent they were. That said, you have convinced me to give these guys a listen.

Seriously they should be on the top 20 the one who made this list should really rethink this

There latest album "Nemesis" is the best metal album ever! This is a top ten metal band for sure. They're from Finland, but that shouldn't matter. Give them a listen. You WILL NOT be disappointed!

Just listening their song like forever and tomorrow, you will knew that this
Is the best ever melodic power metal in the world.

442 Doro

Things between Lita Ford and Doro Pesch could get a little hairy though.

Yeah, nice little blonde from back in the day. I fantasised about her and Lita Ford going at it, but did they wax back then?

447 Antim Grahan

Many of you may not have heard of Antim Grahan because its band from Nepal. But If you give a try and listen one of the song then the real metal lovers can not stop them from loving this band. Listen to their songs like FOREVER WINTER or 300 and you will know what I'm trying to say
-Nepali Metal Lover

Antim Grahan is a ultimate metal band. I would really like to thank this site because through this site, I discovered Antim Grahan and now I am proud to be one of the antim grahan fan...

449 Misery Signals Misery Signals Misery Signals is an American-Canadian metalcore band formed in Wisconsin in 2002. The sound of their music is defined by bright melodies backed up by odd time signatures, chugging riffs, and breakdowns.

Redefined the metalcore genre as we know it today. Heavy, pummeling breakdowns and beautifully intertwined melodic guitar riffs make this band a definite top 5.

450 Trapt Trapt Trapt is an American rock band that formed in Los Gatos, California in 1995, best known for their 2002 single "Headstrong".

Trapt shouldn't be this low on the list

451 Adema Adema Adema is a nu metal band from Bakersfield, California. The band formed in 2000 with members lead vocalist Mark Chavez, vocalist/guitarist Tim Fluckey, guitarist Mike Ransom, bassist Dave DeRoo, and drummer Kris Kohls.
452 Papa Roach Papa Roach Papa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest.

How come paparoach so low here.. They should be top 50 at least for sure.. They far better than Linkin Park or Green Day

This Band is so awesome


453 Bring Me the Horizon Bring Me the Horizon Bring Me the Horizon is a British rock band from Sheffield, Yorkshire. Formed in 2004, the group currently consists of vocalist Oliver Sykes, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls, and keyboardist Jordan Fish. They are signed to RCA Records globally and Columbia Records exclusively more.

I'm sorry but this band is absolute garbage. Oli Sykes is an awful screamer, the drumming is super generic and all the guitarists play is breakdown upon breakdown upon yet another breakdown. Listen to decent metalcore bands like Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying or Parkway Drive instead of this horrible band.

Yep! I'm convinced of their immense talent. Each release evolves from the last. They're emotive, heavy, classy, and have the talent to create songs from any genre, but still sound nothing like they invented that genre. There's a hint of genius in them, and I'm not a screaming 13-year-old tongue-pierced girl, either. These guys are profound and are the real deal now.

Breakdown after breakdown after breakdown is exactly why you should buy Sempiternal, because it's emotive and brutal. Then go grab their latest, That's The Spirit, for a great change of pace. This band are immense now, and there's a reason - they're bloody good.

703? Are you kidding me?! I wouldn't expect them to be in the top ten but 703?! Bmth is one of the most influential deathcore and metalcore bands to exist. And they're good!

Yeah, I had to buy their album Stalker because my ex-fiancé kept harping at me on Facebook.

455 Narnia
456 Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria are an English metalcore band from York, North Yorkshire formed initially in 2008 by lead guitarist Ben Bruce along with former lead singer Danny Worsnop, bassist Joe Lancaster, keyboardist and synth player Ryan Binns, and current members drummer James Cassells and rhythm guitarist more.

Ok, we all know they are underrated... But seriously... What?! AA is one of not so many bands were every single song is pure gold. + Danny is the god of scream... and whatever you say, Denis also brought some really interesting sounds to their music. And to mention some song - A Lesson Never Learned. Not very well-known, but for me personally this is Asking Alexandria.

Worsnop's gone, so it's time to move on. That's like Metallica without Hetfield with this mob.

What the hell is this doing down here!

Garbage band. Heavy metal is awful though overall.

457 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. more.

Metallica, Slayer, Maiden, Anthrax etc. Saved my life as a 13-year-old kid, and though they just enrich my life now that my testicles have long since dropped, I do believe music can have a positive emotional impact on people. I'm not a fan of BVB, but if it they speak to kids in a personal way, then I say that's a good thing and is beyond criticism.

Black Veil Brides is NOT metal. It's Metalcore Rock if you want to be specific, but not metal, I used to love BVB and I don't mind them nowadays, but I'm not as big of a fan as I used to be, but I still respect that band deeply, but I wouldn't call them "metal."

Not metal. Please tell me why are they on this list? - LadyBanshee

Bvb is best band ever! please tell me why it's so deep in list?
