283 Stone Sour Stone Sour Stone Sour is an American rock band formed in Des Moines, Iowa in 1992, performing for five years, before disbanding in 1997. They reunited in 2000 and since 2006, the group has consisted of Corey Taylor, Josh Rand and Roy Mayorga.

We all know Corey Taylor is a great singer. This is what no one can deny. Well. He is best in both slipknot and stone sour.

We all know that Corey Taylor is a great singer so in addition to slipknot, stone sour is a great band too.

I like no masks and stand and deliver metal. That's why I like these guys.

Great band Cory Taylor is the BEST

284 Michael Schenker Group
285 All Shall Perish

Listen to them and they'll define you real heavy metal. Whoa! Their lyrics are so cool and brutal! And their music hurts the ears but they'd not want to let your earphones/headphones drop! They make the heaviest and the most awesome heavy metal music one can ever imagine. All Shall Perish needs to be heard and voted. Thank you!

286 Protest the Hero

Yep, I have all their stuff now, and are one of fair few younger bands making exciting metal exciting again.

A new metal band but hell not to shabby look them up

290 Satyricon Satyricon Satyricon is a Norwegian black metal band formed in Oslo, Norway in 1991 by vocalist Satyr and drummer Frost. The band's first three albums typify the Norwegian black metal style. Since their fourth album in 1999, the band has moved towards a more traditional heavy metal style.
291 Vio-Lence Vio-Lence Vio-lence was an American thrash metal band formed in 1985 in the San Francisco Bay Area. They released demo tapes, one EP and 3 LPs between 1985 and 1993. Their most stable line-up was Phil Demmel and Robb Flynn on guitars, Deen Dell on bass, Perry Strickland on drums and Sean Killian on vocals.

Now we're getting somewhere. Back in the 80's there was this little heavy metal movement called thrash metal, and one of these thrash metal bands were these guys, and Machind Head's Rob Flynn once used to shred his guitar like Hetfield himself. It was frenetic thrash METAL.

298 Babymetal Babymetal Babymetal is a Japanese metal idol band. Their line-up consists of Suzuka Nakamoto as "Su-metal", Yui Mizuno as "Yuimetal", and Moa Kikuchi as "Moametal".

This day and age, metal music has almost lost it's integrity. A lot of new bands that are coming out are trying too hard to be "brutal." There's almost no music. Just rampant noise and breakdowns. Then the original metal bands that are still going are spending most of their time touring and hardly put out any new material. Then there's bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Trivium who are trying hard to keep metal as a form of music, and not pure noise. Then at the same time, people might start looking for something that sounds different. Something that doesn't sound like what you'd expect from a typical metal band. Well, ladies and gents, look no further. Japan is home to just that. Babymetal are undoubtedly one of the best things to happen to metal in a long time. Their music is great, and touches a variety of the heavy metal subgenres that have surfaced since the inception of the genre, and it just puts a smile on your face to see three adorable Japanese teenage girls singing ...more - MetalFoREVer1228

The new era of Metal.. If you want to find something new, try BABYMETAL..

Metal has became a pretty tired genre. Time to pass the baton.
Babymetal is refreshingly good. The current top 10 (except AX7 & Disturbed what) have already attained legendary status.
