Best Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 6
This band has more talent in one of the members fingers than most of the top bands do total. These guys are what metal is all about
Best ever metal songs are here...don't know why its on 86th place..Songs leveler, back burner, marianas trench, composure, white washed are so energetic...and their new album RESCUE AND RESTORE chanceless complete metal I ever heard.
The Best Metalcore-Band ever. Their Songs are very good!
Christian metal band :) rocksV 1 Comment
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.
Definitely still an upcoming band. Full of energy, they're fantastic live. Fine musicianship as well. Conceptually a "freak show," they incorpate some very unusual, yet cool elements to both their music and live performances. Their producers once called them "relentless."
Even Kurt Cobain liked this band!
Whaaat Celtic Frost should be on the top 10, with Iron Maiden, Helloween, Rush, Manowar, and some others, just for being LEGENDARY BANDS in their genre!
Let me guess. You're in your mid-40s? Same here. Don't feel too bad that modern metal has taken over from these beasts. It's generational, that's all.
My favourite ever and foreverV 3 Comments
One of my favorite folk metal bands of all time.V 1 Comment
He is higher. I ran into him a few pages ago. I feel sorry for the individual running this thread. It's gone from a bonfire to a raging inferno, and is a great read to boot.
Rob must be higher!
Rob Zombie is amazing
What, 185 how is rob zombie not at least in the top 20V 3 Comments
Yes, you should say more. Still influential today, even though they stubbornly refuse to release material and just play live.
At the Gates should be in the top ten easily...i guess a lot of young people is voting crappy band here... - ischanV 1 Comment
Death Metal's founding fathers are where they belong, hidden in obscurity - because if they were inside the top 20 all the other death metal bands who claim they're favourite death metal band are its founding father's, they'd be shuffle off obsequiously into the night.
I believe.'Seven Churches' was so heavy and evil that I couldn't purchase it. Parents suck!
Seriously? These guys aren't even metal! Hell, they are barely even post-hardcore! When I think of Post-hardcore, I think of Fugazi, At the Drive-in and Alexisonfire. Great bands who made awesome music. Sleeping with Sirens however, are generic whiny scenecore for 12-16 year old girls and stupid emo kids listen to while they complain about how much their life sucks. Whiny lyrics? Check. Annoying prepubescent vocals? Check. Overly simplistic instruments that anyone could play? Check. Style over substance? Big check. Talent? Not checked.
Rant Over. Sleeping With Men (sorry if this comes across as homophobic) sucks AND swallows AND takes it in the ass as well. They just suck so much.
Awful band how they are so high is beyond me
Lol! You have inadvertently made me interested in this band, by systematically dismantling them. They might be so bad that they're good. All hail schlock metal!
Really, those guys are higher than Type O Negative? God, we're screwed. - SolariserV 6 Comments
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.
Absolutely unique, original and stunning. pure art, not just a part of some subculture
These guys are heavy, melodic and rule progressive metal.
Type O needs to be in the top 20...at least
they are better the many between this spot and the to 20
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA is a great heavy metal band. Mike vocalist and writer is great. James vocals and guitarist is great as well. Lyrics are symbolic and straight forward that sends meaningful message. They have been out for about 8 years but should be higher up on the list.
I saw these guys for three minutes when they opened for killswitch engage. Why three minutes? I went to take a dump.
This band is awesome. They deserve more...
Why so low!?!?! With Mike's vocals And Danny's double bass they should be higher!V 1 Comment
Parallax II: Future Sequence is the new high-water mark for truly progressive metal. It is 72-minutes of brutality and diversity and technicality that in 10-years time, shall be regarded as the greatest concept progressive Death Metal album ever made. They own Opeth, Death, Cannibal Corpse, but almost every band on the planet, bar Metallica's epic first 5.
Get off of your computer, go to the nearest album store, find a copy of "Silent Circus" and "Colors" by Between the Buried and Me and get ready to have a new favorite band!
My goodness! This mighty thread has costs me so much money on eBay. Now The Great Misdirect is in my collection. 5-star band. 5-star thread. 0-star wallet.
What the...V 12 Comments
Unique... Rebel... Beautiful... OPEN YOUR MIND BEFORE YOUR MOUTH.
Everyone do you know what miw have done. They have risen from the bottom so quickly. They should be in the top ten by far
Needs 2 b # 1
They deserve 20th in the least
Somehow, Kalmah are this low? Sweet Christ they are good. Easily my favourite band, and not just metal. Surprised that music by anyone else hasn't been banned and we all just listen to Kalmah.
Should be in top 20, By the way it's from my home city - Disturbedpotato
I hate that people know their bigger hits but can't recognize their other amazing songs, or even who they are. So few people I know could remember their name, but all of them knew We're Not Gonna Take It. I guess some kids just weren't raised right. - dubsinthetubs
You think people didn't listen to 'I Wanna' Rock? '. Dee Snider filed his canine teeth to match that of a vampire's. That's how much money that guy has. I'm struggling to save money to wax my testicles.
201?! People, what's wrong with you? Just listen I Wanna Rock.V 1 Comment
How is Parkway Drive this low down! Easily the best metal band as they are so consistent. Every single one of their albums are excellent and they are awesome live. These guys brought me into the metal genre and I have never turned back. If you have never heard this band and are a fan of metal. I seriously recommend this band. You won't regret it!
Best Band to have ever created music, great aussie blokes who also tour around poverty stricken countries as well
I wonder why there are not Even in the list..!
Just Listen To Them They Are Awesome..
The Vocal, The Double Bass Drummer! Man Will Blow your Mind!
I also find that this group really has to be much more acknowledged... even on other lists out there - it's like if they didn't even exist...V 4 Comments
