43 The Amity Affliction The Amity Affliction

This Band honestly needs to be number one. They have amazing vocalists, amazing lyrical content, their music has a good beat, they are amazing live. They have amazing qualities to their music and they need recognition.

Such a great band. Each song has its own individual feel to it. You'll be hooked no matter what song you listen to. Needs to be higher on the list for sure!

I think this band needs to be number two. lean on me best song ever!

Underrated band in general

53 Behemoth Behemoth Behemoth is a Polish blackened death metal band from Gdańsk, formed in 1991. They are considered to have played an important role in establishing the Polish extreme metal underground.

This is a death metal band and they are... Good I guess but you people might like them because everyone has their own opinion you guys or girls might like them

54 Dead By April

Dead by April is a awesome band! People just don't understand them, because they're Pop Metal? Come on man, they are trying to bring something new and you reject it. At least try to listen to them and maybe, who knows, you'll become a fan. By the way, Dead by April is not that much Pop for me, it's mostly Melodic Metalcore so don't get affraid that you'll get to listen something like Backstreet Boys. The only reason people say it's Pop is because of Santiago's vocal style, but... it still rocks! The guitar work on every album is great and especially the bass will make you wanna headbang. The drums on the tracks like "Same Star" and "As a Butterfly" simply kick ass. Vocals are just too good, both Santiago and Andersson are goo vocalists, Jimmie was great too, but he left... Anyways, this band should be above bands like Bullet for my Valentine. Dead by April is simply amazing, that's why. DBA rocks!

Dead by April is the best band in the world! How aren't they on one number one, come on everybody vote for this band please. Just listen to the song 'Painting Shadows' and you'll know why I'am suggesting you to vote for this band. Completely awesome screamo combined with synths and pop. Never seen a better band than Dead by April, the other bands are good but Dead by April is incomparable (as their album also says). Dead by April are the kings of music. Everyone should respect this band.

Please! Please! Just only listen then one time. Losing you, promise me, dreaming. You will love them. Should be number 1

Justin Timberlake meets In Flames. this band is just irresistable

57 Attila Attila Attila is an American metalcore band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in 2005. Frontman Chris Fronzak started the band in high school and, not wanting to use typical death metal terms, adopted the name from Attila the Hun, which he came across in a book.

Why is attila so far down on this? 93? What. Party metal all the way. #1

73? That's crazy they're way better than most above them I've only heard of like 20 above them laugh out loud

58 Chiodos

They have awesome vocals. Both Craig and Brandon are amazing. Their voice so good that they even don't need instrument to back their up. That's my opinion

Chiodos kicks ass even without Craig. Brandon Bolmer is beast. - ButTheNunsAreWatching
