Top 10 Best Masked Metal Artists
Nu Metal...? I hate these 87 new genres that someone had to create. They are a simple nine-member band (with a drummer, percussionist, singer, DJ, two bassists, three guitarists, and millions of 'maggots'!) that plays heavy, rhythmic, melodic, fast, epic, and genius metal. How's that for a self-centered, musi-genre-creating, control freak people? Ahem, sorry...little glitch I sometimes get.
Just listen to a hidden extra track, somewhere between their first album, M.F.K.R. (Mate, Feed, Kill, Repeat), it's called 'Eeyore'...I think. That should say it all about how good they are! I have been following these guys since they had a video on a regular TV music show called The Box. They should have their top 10 list with only them on it!
Alternative/Nu Metal band from America. We all knew they'd be here. The names and faces are well known by everybody, but they wear masks for an effect of some sort.
This list is rigid! Slipknot at no. 3? Slipknot is one of the best metal bands EVER! Since 2005, they're are the best metal band.
This is ne of the greatest bands in the world.
Traditional Heavy Metal/Doom Metal band from Sweden. The lead singer is a demonic anti-pope while the instrumentalists wear masks and hoods. The names/faces remain a mystery, but the band gained attention from Dave Grohl, who became a session drummer, producer and maybe even a live drummer.
Such an explosive band! Although they have been knocking around a while they don't get the love they deserve!
Alternative/Industrial/Nu Metal from America. Like Slipknot, they simply wear masks for shock value.
Progressive Avant-Garde Metal. He is known for a white mask and a KFC bucket on his head, while shredding for hours at a time.
They're a great band, and they helped get me into heavy metal. They're also the reason why I'm obsessed with wearing masks!
Traditional Heavy Metal/Shock Metal from Finland. They lean on a Hard Rock/Heavy Metal sound, with a use of horror lyrics and pyrotechnics
Thrash Metal/Comedy/Shock Metal from America. They dress like aliens and often "kill" celebrities on stage.
GWAR dominates this list! All these other bands must kneel before the all mighty GWAR!
I hear people saying they are the worst metal band of all time but I, personally, think they are good; songs like dig, not falling, happy? , and world so cold are what grabbed my attention from this band, if you are interested, check them out! Also they change costumes sometimes, so if you are one of those people who think they should stick with their original costumes, look over it I guess? Really they are very good if you can get into their unique screams and guitar shreds.
Thrash/Death Metal band from America. They wear bags over their heads and play an aggressive, evil sounding blend of Thrash and Death.
My personal favorite for many reasons, from the music to the masks this band is for everyone!
I love Hollywood Undead they are awesome.
Hollywood Undead is The best!
Best rap rock band
I'll be a keyboard warrior and say that Immortal isn't "masked", they just wear corpse paint
How I forgot them, they are my favorite Technical Death Metal band, or specificly: Technical Deathcore
Grindcore/Mathcore/Noise Metal Band. They are very experimental, with some grindcore albums, some noise rock albums, and a mathcore album.
My my god amazing masks epic songs plus they are an amazing supergroup band they are a excellent masked metal band plus I love they a brilliant metal band Ever.
Most underrated band of all time they deserve more love then they get!
Batushka is an Insanely good occult/black metal band from Poland. Definitely worth checking out!
British death metal cover band who specialize in covering pop songs.
The band adopted wearing masks as it was felt that a masked appearance would fit in well with the idea of playing covers. And with the band name, of course.
My favorite covers that put a smile on my face: Stayin' Alive (Bee Gees), Hot Stuff (Donna Summer).
