461 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


462 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.

465 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.

466 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."

That has to be the most stupidest music genre ever created by the minds of an elitist. They are just ROCK, and bad at that - SoldierOfFortune

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

They're my second favorite band and my first favourite metal band.🎤 I know they're not as hardcore as many of the other bands on this list but they're still a great band. - Catlover2004

Metalcore pioneers, if my crappy memory serves me correct.

470 Through the Flood
471 Aurthohin Aurthohin Aurthohin is a Bangladeshi hard rock and metal band formed in 1998 by bassist, singer and songwriter Sumon. He is the only founding member still with the band . Aurthohin are known for their mix of melodic acoustic numbers and extremely heavy metal numbers in their albums often containing lots of bass more.

One of the best band ever I thought.

Underrated because they sing in bengali, but at least check out bassbaba sumon's bass solos, ibrahim's guitar solos and rafa's drumming. Even though you might not get it what those lyrics mean, but you will certainly get it what mindfreaks they are with instruments.

Bassbaba is simply awesome...! And Rafa has no body double yet. Unique and Aurthohin is what you r looking for

I won't call Nikrishto series a metal series. It's more likely punk. But they have metal songs. Pure metal. They went to prog metal from heavy metal. Especially with dual guitar works of Kamal and Shishir. They both extended their songs with metal solos. Multiple solos. - zxm

475 Destruction Destruction Destruction is a German thrash metal band. They are considered one of the "The Big Four" of the German thrash metal scene, the others being Kreator, Sodom and Tankard.

From Sentence of Death to Infernal Overkill to Eternal Devastation to Release from Agony, these guys were pioneers of technical German thrash.

Yes they are. 'Infernal Overkill' is still on my playlist. The opening riff to 'Bestial Invasion' is Mike at his very best.

Great thrash metal band.
