Punk band! Nice try.
Lol! Someone throws a bit of bait in the bloody piranha metal-filled waters and they take it hook, line and sinker.
They are sporadically heavy, but they're alternative rock.
Muse?!?! Heavy Metal?!?!?!
Yes, they are. But some songs sound like Slayer.
This band is so underrated.
My favourite band and of course will become favourite of anyone that is interested in atmospheric and doom stuff cause it all depends on the taste if you listen atmospheric metal try it you will love it
Brilliant band. Like nothing else you will here. Plays a blend of folk, doom, prog, atmospheric, and black metal.
Why is a black metal band on this list - Souleater318
Although primarily a hard rock band, they did incorporate heavy metal into the classic Queen sound, along with hard rock, prog rock, and opera. They also invented some of the first real heavy metal songs, including the first thrash metal song, "Stone Cold Crazy". Also listen to songs like "Ogre Battle", "Death on Two Legs", "The Hitman", and even "Flick of the Wrist".
Their earlier stuff is a lot more metal than their most recent stuff and the metal songs aren't was popular as Bohemian Rhapsody or We Are The Champions. - HardRockSam
Queen could mix it with the best off them, but covered all genre of music. The first two albums are as near to metal as you are going to get.
Queen sounds like pop rock in my humble opinion not metal but they're goodV 5 Comments
ManOWar is not very popular in the US. I think it is due to a lack of familiarity with European mythology and history. It's not like you will get a history lesson from these guys, but you will definitely get the idea behind heavy metal. It's the concept that is heavy, not the sound. Good stuff. I can see why people don't like it, though. It's like fine dining versus McDonald's. Most people flock to McDonald's. Works for me. I would rather attend the concert with people who have passion for the music.
Man, if this isn't the truest and the best metal band ever, there is no metal at all. What have in your heads when you say that Slipknot, A7X and Disturbed are better than Manowar or Dio? If you say that, sorry but you aren't a banger.
Should be on top these are the real defenders of metal I mean there's a lot of awesome bands but for a heavy metal band manowar are the best of allm/
Manowar, Dio, Deep Purple, Motörhead, Rainbow, Alice Cooper, Led Zeppelin etc., all of them ranked lower than bands like Slipknot, Ax7, KoRn, Disturbed. It's a shameV 29 Comments
Saxon are an original rock band that should be up there with iron maiden?
Saxon deserve more respect
Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Saxon... Should be the first 3 everyone is is a wanna-be.
At least number 3!

One of the best guitarists out there and I'm loving the contrast of metal with the singers clean vocals. The number 1 reason I am loving them right now is that their drummer (Dave Mackintosh) delivers such an passionate and skilled drum beat and style. That is dedication and passion at its best. Rock On!
Very multi-talented band, filled with raw energy and power.
They should be in the top ten no questions about it
DragonForce is actually Power Metal, Extreme Power Metal, and Speed Metal. But still some of their songs are heavy metal and are epic such as, Cry Thunder, which is one of their top tracks and one of the most famous song in the world. :0------------0:V 6 Comments
What?! They have immense solos and the drumming is so fast this band is so much better than Avenged Sevenfold! Just listen to waking the demon, tears don't fall, scream aim fire, the end and so many more!
Dude Bullet For My Valentine they are really cool
They deserve do be in the top 10
They are much better than Disturbed and A7x
The most under rated band
They easily deserve to be in the top
Just listen to their songs they re amzing
I find them better than metallica
My favourite metal bands are:-
Bullet For My Valentine
Comparatively modern metal is better.
The reason why this deserves to be low, or not on this list at all, is because it's not heavy metal. Why not add Nicky Minaj to this list?
Are you having a giggle mate?
They are not heacy metal they have a good sweet sound to there music
40 years birthsday in 2013, good and professional concert facility for pink floyd in future, could be horsens musicart city in denmark.
God! They are great band you could ever hear during your entire life. They are not that heavy metal band, though. But they have great songs in nu-metal and rap-rock genres. I wonder If you heard "In the end" "Numb" or the other song, like, "One Step Closer'. If you didn't, open the YouTube on your browser and write "the greatest metal/rock ever"right on the blank and you will figure it out that I am right.
This band is amazing it should be at least the tenth spot. Their music is amazing. Especially their first two albums, Meteora and Hybrid Theory.
I voted for LP but we all know that they re not a heavy metal band! They used to be a nu metal and now they are alt rock, electronic rock.
Oh but no. up it goesV 9 Comments
