Best Metal Bands

+5 for Glenn Benton naming his son after the anti-christ in the movie 'The Omen'. I'd kill to have an old man like that. Mine was THE Anti-Christ! Why do you think I like metal? And don't mention Stryper, either.
Probably, no they're the best melodic death metal band to exist. Christian Alevestam is one of, if not the best metal singer out there, along with their guitarists who can easily put Metallica to shame. And lyrically is where they excel the most. Unlike most metal bands that want to make their music about anger and hatred SS writes songs about scientific theories, physical anomalies, pantheism, and much more. 351 is a definite insult, they should be at least in top 10.
Scar Symmetry is poppy garbage and a disgrace to melodic death metal
And doesn't have all the "writing" that you get for cracking pleather in your car.V 1 Comment
I have The Devil You Don't hand cannon from the Xbox 360 version of Destiny. It's rarer than the vinyl version of the Creeping Death single.
Fear Factory is definitely the best metal band. They were partially responsible for the development of several major subgenres in metal today such as industrial and death metal. Few bands can change their style and sound like FF and still maintain who they are as a band; most bands that try end up alienating their original fan base in the end. And to add to the heavy music, a number of their CDs play into a detailed concept-scheme which is both refreshing and interesting.
By far, Fear Factory is one of the most underrated Metal bands out there. I'm not sure if it's because they haven't fit into a neatly defined category of metal, but certainly when you look at 1995's Demanufacture, you can hear the genius of getting Rhys Fulber to mix the album and participate as the unncredited 5th member of the band.
Fear Factory has also not been content to stand pat; they've taken risks, and experimented when they could have churned out the same stuff over and over again, If you haven't taken a moment to listen to Fear Factory, give them a whirl. I mean, when Black Sabbath wishes they could play with Fear Factory, they've gotta be doing something right!
Soul of a new machine. Full of Innovation. A masterpiece. The Self immolation Remix pulled me through so many years and simply was a precious source of energy. I can only thank Burton, Dino and the band for their amazing work.
Demanufacture is one of the greatest metal albums of all time.V 9 Comments
The most epic and brilliant band in all of heavy metal. Kings of power metal and one of the few non-disastrous attempts to truly fuse classical forms of music and heavy metal. The first two Rhapsody albums represent the band's classic signature sound and the pinnacle of power metal, while the last two full Rhapsody (of Fire) albums represent a by and large successful move to a more refined and modern sound. A few albums in between fell short, but records like Power of the Dragonflame are undoubted power metal classics.
Love this band! One of the best power metal bands ever! My favorite song is Dawn of Victory - Doggelito98
Probably one of the cheesiest bands ever, but in a really good way.
Luca and Fabio are gone. RIP - PrawnstarV 3 Comments
Because we're older fans of a genre and generation that witnessed the birth of Punk and Thrash and Death and Black. How many kids know about this stuff? Not many.
Sodom is epic band. Why it is 207?
DevilDriver is pretty damn good, but I think the reason they're all the way down here is because there pretty unheard of, they may not be the heaviest, but they have amazing voice and instrumentals
I guess the most people who gonna call herself a "metal Head" are listening to nu metal. The gay art of metal.
This is the true!
Come on guys. Nile's one of the best tech death bands out there. Karl is a virtuoso
This bands has very unnoted talent. A fusion of Thrash Metal and Technical Death Metal with even some Progressive Metal influences. They are worth checking out.
My cousin says that revocation is the best band ever. But um, nobody else knows about them. They kind of suck - heavymetalrocker777
Seriousely the best Japanese metalcore band. Metalcore isn't metal, but Bon jovi or Nirvana arę there so...
It's hard to keep re-iterating this, but apart from the generation-spanning greats like Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Maiden, Sabbath etc. You'll notice how the list gets better and better as you go. It's a generational issue, and this is not a Miss Universe pageant, and this thread is also a great tool for educating the younger generation on bands they aren't aware of. If 20 kids dig Katatonia after reading this then I say good.
What in the world? If you people don't think that Katatonia is good then you obviously don't know great music. Honestly? I am very appalled at this. It makes absolutely no sense for them to be this low.
Yes! My word these depressing giants are good. 'The Great Cold Distance' is fantastic - 'July' particularly.
