162 Job for a Cowboy Job for a Cowboy Job for a Cowboy is an American death metal band from Glendale, Arizona. Formed in 2003, the band's debut album Genesis was released in 2007, peaking at No.

Their newest album, Sun Eater is some really high quality Death Metal. Anyone who says they sucks obviously hasn't heard anything after they made the Doom EP. by the way these guys are really underrated! They are rarely mentioned ever! Still, a great band regardless.

163 Bathory Bathory Bathory was a Swedish Black/Viking Metal band formed in 1983 by Quorthon and Jonas Ã…kerlund. Bathory's first 4 albums layed the blueprint for Scandinavian Black Metal. Quorthon is often credited with creating the "shrieking" vocal style of Black Metal. Their 5th album, Hammerheart (1990) displayed more.

Sure they are the considered the greatest black metal artists of all-time. But when's the last time YOU heard anybody talk about them?

Despite having recorded just two albums, I still find them one of the most interesting and original technical thrash bands

170 Volbeat Volbeat Volbeat are a Danish metal band which was formed in Copenhagen. They play a fusion of rock and roll, heavy metal and rockabilly.

They're amazing yet they're 60th best in the best metal bands of all time? How does this work? They're better than Slipknot and Disturbed combined!

I can't believe nobody has heard of this band. Just listen to "Summit". It will make you wonder why they're not as popular as Iron Maiden.

175 Vital Remains Vital Remains
