Best Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 8
Pretty decent Pantera-esque metal. I have 'Deathless' and 'Venom and Tears' and both are good.
Trve Norwegian Black Metal. So obscure that 0% voted for this. One of the most preeminent bands to exist. - LadyBansheeV 1 Comment
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
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
Why are Mercyful Fate not even on the first page? They should at the VERY least be in the top 20.
We know that This website isn't trust worthy at all either by judging from the fact that Avenged Sevenfold is at the top 10 & mercyful fate is the top 229th or that dio is the 22nd
Look, this site is old school, hence Metallica, Slayer, Sabbath, Priest, Megadeth inside the top ten. Mercyful Fate only released 2 official albums and a couple of rare ep's. That doesn't mean they're not better than some inside the top ten-or-twenty, but when you're old school you have to grin and bear it.
Very underrated! - htoutlaws2012V 8 Comments
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.

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
The mighty Al Jourgensen! Beast of a guitar player, and I loved his collaboration with Jello Biafra.V 1 Comment
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...
So underrated. Just listen to "prepare for attack.
These guys are the future of thrash
Hellyeah shouldn't be so low on the list
Alice Cooper should be number 1! HOW IS HE EVEN 506!?!? Makes no sence, the man created shock rock. A lot of the people on this list wouldn't be here with out him!
510? Somethings wrong here...
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 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.
