They are the best to me because all there music is solid, and very consistent. They have good lyrics with an amazing vocalist. Amazing guitar riffs and solos. Epic drum beats and beautiful double bass solos. A good bass sound that's a very intense beat. Avenged sevenfold is at the top of the charts for me! - foREVer28

Just listen to afterlife that has to be one of the best songs I have ever heard.

I had a friend who told me Avenged Sevenfold symbolised the death of rock and roll. He couldn't be mre wrong. Shadows voice is amazing, Syn and Zacky are some of the best guitar duos in the world, The Rev was one of the best drummers ever and Johnnys bass is epic in Critical Acclaim and their new stuff is as good as their old stuff - Danielsun182

The lyrics are fun. Guitars are smooth. Drums are a very nice distinct sound. Bass is amazing nice solos from them. - foREVer28

The stuff korn foes amazes me! Korn I'd good, but I don't like how the guitar solos are not full they are very dull. The drums are very average. I don't like how they rely on the bass player and lyrics to make them who they are. - foREVer28

KoRn is the best

6 In This Moment In This Moment is an American metal band from Los Angeles, California, formed by singer Maria Brink and guitarist Chris Howorth in 2005. They found drummer Jeff Fabb and started the band as Dying Star.

Very amazing live shows. The singer has a sexy voice and writes good lyrics. The guitarist could do more with it. Kind of just an average drummer. And the bass is barely heard so they kind of rely on lyrics and vocals. - foREVer28

7 Papa Roach Papa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest.

Very amazing vocals and lyrics. The guitar is very weak but still fits the style. The drums are not amazing but he gets the job done. And an average bassist. - foREVer28

I love this band other than the vocals, when he screams it sounds like he is whispering. The guitars are there, drums ate there, lyrics are strong. But not enough to move them up my charts. - foREVer28

This band is awesome and his scream is just really raspy and hoarse I love it and love everyone in the band especially C.C's crazy self
