Best Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 8
The old linkin park yes, Hybird Theory and Meteora are awesome. However there latest stuff I wouldn't call metal.
Linkin Park is not exactly metal but they are a good band! I enjoy their music very much even though some of my favorite bands are Death, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Meshuggah, Immortal, Kataklysm, Agalloch etc. I don't know why some so called "metal elitist" bash and hate Linkin Park? Chester and Mike Shinoda are really talented.
Linkin Park is the perfect combo of Hip-hop and Rock (Rock and Rap -Mike Shinoda). However, it also has an amazing metal element to it that still remains in their new albums everyone complains about. (Victimized, Lies Greed Misery... ) Without Chester, this band wouldn't be on this list. This band is first on the alternative rock list. Nirvana is a good second place winner though. :P

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.
Pretty decent Pantera-esque metal. I have 'Deathless' and 'Venom and Tears' and both are good.
This band should be at least in the top tensV 1 Comment
Awesome band, but they are punk not metal.
I LIKE THIS BAND'S EVERY SONGS... Welcome to the land of questions
Welcome to the isle of lore
Where the veil came crumbling down
There it all began, the germination
Unveiling a cryptic door
There it was revealed, hopes and aspirations
Unclosing an enthralled door
Escalate the sense
Enhancing to join the dawn
I close my eyes, Inis Mona
And reminisce of those palmy days
I moon o'er you, Inis Mona
As long as I breathe, I'll call you my home
20 years I have walked your barrows
Years of emulous youth
I followed the path of the wise
There it all was sown, the inspiration
Removing the seven seals
There it was revealed, enigma and freedom
Unclosing an unseen door
AND I love THIS SONG VERY MUCH...
Best rhythm in the world! Best melodic music combination ever!
Inis Mona is probably the best song in the world and you say this band is No 133? Are you kidding me?
How on Earth they are #142. This is a fantastic band. They deserve place in Top 20.V 2 Comments
Really? All the way down here Van Halen is the king of guitar with out him there would be no tapping of metal VAN HALEN RULES ANYONE! - macrox16
Such a classic band. Should definitely be in the top 10
Anyone who smiles at you whilst delivering an explosive solo should go and play in Bieber's band.
Yes, with David Lee Roth in there, they were a rocking band. Too short-lived line-up.V 2 Comments
Without a doubt my favorite metal band, and they also cross over into my hard rock list. The most material that will keep me rockin' for as long as I wish. Seen them many times.
Here I�'m rock you like a hurricane and I take a wind of changes but I still love you, always, so have many good things to love this band... And unforgettable show with Berlin Philharmonic orchestra.., the best in my point of view
Guys, this is a shame. They have been around long before most users of the internet were even born. - Prawnstar

Best metal/rockabilly ever...
This is one of the best metal bands ever made - Schulm3
Lola Montez and warriors call are my favoritesV 6 Comments

I never like metal before, but I became the great fan of metal after hearing the song, In my defense (Avantasia).
Probably one the best power metal bands! Nothing' more to say bout that.
Tobi is a modern composer of utter genius - PrawnstarV 5 Comments
Ghost may be a very new band, but they deserve to be way higher up. Over the past year, Ghost has become one of the most popular modern Metal Bands, they have performed on late night television, won a Grammy, have been selling out consistently on their last few tours, and their recent album, Meliora, peaked in the top 5 of the billboard rock charts. They are truly something special. Occult imagery and lyrics, with heavy Doom Metal riffs and catchy vocals. Ghost is becoming huge! - ryanrimmel
They're honestly the best modern metal of all time. They're not some boring alternative metal crap we hear now at days. They are honestly way better than Slipknot and Avenged Sevenfold
They are only down here because they're a new band, they will become one of the best bands of all time if they keep on producing such amazing songs, but until then, it will take a long time before most of the people notice them.
Actually there psychedelic rock tinged with doom metal. Even one of the band members said they were rock at the Grammys.V 8 Comments
