Best Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 9
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
Ensiferum is at 292 this makes me want to cry they should be right up there with Amon Amarth if not higher songs like token of time, victory songs, lai la lai la hai, unsung heroes, warrior without a war, little dreamer, and guardians of fate are just some of their best songs. Easily one of the greatest Viking metal bands of all time.
Hell yes they shake the heavens
297? Ensiferum? Best Vikingmetal Ever!
Hear songs like: lai lai hei, hero in a dream and Guardians of fate
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
True Norwegian black metal. Period. - GreenDayFan21
Trve Norwegian Black Metal. So obscure that 0% voted for this. One of the most preeminent bands to exist. - LadyBanshee
Fenriz is a true genius
Trve Kvlt Black Metal is not for everyone... That's why I love Darkthrone so much. Keep metal in the underground! That's where it should be, away from anything mainstream.
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.
The Great Band Ever!V 1 Comment
Great new black metal band
This band has some of the most annoying vocals ever.
It is the best metal band in my opinionV 1 Comment
Savatage is the best band ever... Why is it 86th? Great lyrics.. Great voice.. Great sound. Too bad there are not together anymore. Zach has a great voice.
Chris Caffery plays some of the best metal riffs ever, at least in my opinion. Not to mention you can actually understand most of their lyrics. - SamRaven2
This is one of those gems that gets passed over and over. The band in any configuration were and still are some of the most talented musicians in the world!
One of the most underrated bands of all time...V 26 Comments
These guys and girls should be at the top of this list. (444 as of this post) The backing group are some of the most talented musicians to come out of Japan or anywhere else, for that matter. The girls are unbelievable performers considering their age. The real magic happens at their live performances. They just rock! Go Su-Metal!
Their unique approach and various challenges to many types of metal music have created many opportunities to start listening to metal musics for younger generations, and they should be more popular for the future of metal music!
Unique and refreshing, though some like to write them off as a gimmick, over the years however they have proven that they are here to stay and are steadily gaining fans and respect, even in the sometimes harsh Metal community. Big names like Rob Zombie, Metallica and Rob Halford(Judas Priest) have expressed their support for this new phenomenon.
Yes, BABYMETAL is not "purely metal" but that doesn't take anything away from it's charm. Their music is refreshing, bringing heavy metal music together with "kawaii" as the girls have explained. And their live shows are just amazing. Seeing them live is definitely on my bucket list. If you haven't yet listened to them: Just embrace the kawaii. KITSUNE UP!V 18 Comments
