MESHUGGAH must be listen a lot of time to understand their complexity
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.
UPTO TOP 50 BITCH
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
