Immortal and many great black metal bands so low?
Black metal legends that are way too low on the list
All Shall Fall is the best song ever.V 1 Comment
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
The first metal band ever. Period.V 1 Comment
Pretty decent Pantera-esque metal. I have 'Deathless' and 'Venom and Tears' and both are good.
Awesome band, but they are punk not metal.
are you serious big sound great song writing this has to be a lot higher
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
Yes, even I forgot about this band. I have one on vinyl, but that's it. I think they were there with Priest and Maiden, and they were very popular, but fell off the radar - for me at-least.
Seriously? On this list there aren't those masterpiece of metal?V 1 Comment
Queensryche is the greatest! Mostly before they lost Chris Degarmo but whatever... Geoff tate has wonderful vocals and range. Listen to Queen of the reich then listen to Silent lucidity that's pretty much how wide of a range this guy has. Oh yeah also operation mindcrime was their best album!
Mindcrime has got to get SOME love! - suhlevy
Yes! A mighty prog metal outfit. I'd go do far as to say 'Rage For Order' is their best, despite 'Operation Mindcrime' being one of the greatest albums of all time. 'Empire' broke them commercially, and they were enormous then, but arena rock wasn't Queensryche's place. 'Promised Land' delivered, then the great de Garmo left, and that was it, for me at-least.
Todd is way better sounding than Tate.V 5 Comments
I'm surprised to see chimaira is so low on the list I agree with most the comments about linkin park being above great hard metal bands such as chimaira and lamb of god.. The people who voted on this should kill themselves out of shame... Travis long
The mighty Al Jourgensen! Beast of a guitar player, and I loved his collaboration with Jello Biafra.V 1 Comment
The Horror! A band that likes Metallica might be influenced by them. What on Earth can make a human being influenced by something? There should be no DNA, no tastes, no acknowledgement whatsoever. If you are creative, and it isn't 100% original, then you do not deserve your place among us mere mortals.
Hey, throw a brick at the lead-singer, just like all the others who dislike this band. I bet you're the one's who own Trivium albums and conveniently forget how much they want to be like Metallica. Hypocrites.
Also, for the record, they don't sound much like Metallica anyway. 'Skull' is more Slayer than Metallica, and, wait for it...if you give them a chance, guess what? You just might like them. Horrific, I know.
The Great Band Ever!V 1 Comment
Hellyeah shouldn't be so low on the list
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
Hatebreed were one of the new breed of so-called 'hardcore' metal bands, a term redefined after Minor Threat, Agnostic Front etc. became extinct. Also, there was absolutely nothing commercial about Metallica. They were the antithesis of commerciality, but success chose them, not the other way round. Sure, things have changed, but you must give credit where credit's due. Also, no Metallica no Hatebreed because although they're different styles, all the swift aggressive bands and sub-genres were born from the creators of thrash.
Great band, they should be on the list somewhere!
One of the best of power metals, they're simply insane. Should be on top 10, unlike Metallica overrated and commercialised.
This list is an absolute joke. Hatebreed's not even in the list. Undoubtedly and with pure dominance over 12 years, they are and should be number 1. enough said...
Within Temptation used to be a Metal Eminence, Power, Sympho, Gothic, and Folk metal people, know which top should they be.
#158? Are you effing kidding? No, they deserve to be higher! If it were not for them, I would not like metal today.
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
