Best Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 9
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!V 1 Comment
So underrated. Just listen to "prepare for attack.
These guys are the future of thrash
This band has some of the most annoying vocals ever.
It is the best metal band in my opinionV 1 Comment
Trve Norwegian Black Metal. So obscure that 0% voted for this. One of the most preeminent bands to exist. - LadyBansheeV 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.
Seriousely the best Japanese metalcore band. Metalcore isn't metal, but Bon jovi or Nirvana arę there so...
Some one had to and they are an amazing band x
This one of the greatest rock band in the history of music..
They were great in the late '80s, early '90sV 4 Comments
Alter bridge is one if those bands some people will always say isn't metal, but with the release of fortress, along with some of their older songs, such as metalingus and ties that bind, alter bridge has released numerous amazing metal songs. Between the legendary voice of myles kennedy and the godlike guitar skill of Mark Tremonti, this band merits a good look through. I'm not one to say that the higher ranking bands are trash, or that I'm outraged that my favorite band is so low, but what I will say is that anyone who is a fan of metal ought to give Alter Bridge a try!
They're not exclusive to metal, but have some of that as well. All of their songs are amazing!
Yeah, they're a great alternative rock band that can verge on heavy. Quality band.
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
This is hands down one of the better of the new bands of the past decade the burning halo really showed that this highly talented band is looking to take over the goth/doom metal crowd I would say they are the best goth metal doom metal band out there bar none. - the_winds_of_mayhem
Draconian is the best GOTHIC/DOOM METAL band - Angra-Mainyu
If you love both classical music and metal (as I know many metallers do), you will find Apocalyptica absolutely great and original. How many metal bands are there that just use cellos and kick ass? I wouldn't dare putting them on the top ten places, as they are way too eccentric to common understanding of metal, ok. Yet they are brilliant in their kind. It's a shame that they stand at place 96, so grossly underrated.
How about Kronos Quartet? Their soundtrack to Requiem For A Dream is even more unnerving than the movie.
They're amazing. Songs, lyrics, especially lyrics and Ronnie's screams... - Marvel_1William
Best modern rock band - Marvel_1William
HAHAAHA! Are you serious?
Talk about typos. I couldn't be bothered correcting them. You get the drift.
The great Quuensryche. From the progressive NWOBHM of their debut ep and album to the electronic progressive metal on Rage For Ordrr to their recognised guitar driven masterpiece Operstion Minfcrime, to commercial success on Empite to their final album with the excellent Chris DeGarmo on Promised Land, these guys meant business.
Dimmu makes Behemoth look like Hannah Montana. -
Want to break up the monotony of "metal" you hear all over today throw a track on Dimmu on and let the metal commence.
I'd give it to Hannah before Dimmu, provided it's legal.
Every single track they play gives me goosebumps 63 is nothing... They are the kings of death metalV 1 Comment
