The Contenders: Page 16

301 Stryper

Excellent musicians. I think I saw them with Megadeth, believe it or not.

Stryper isn't higher because Nobody knows about this band.

302 Battlecross Battlecross Battlecross is an American extreme metal band from Canton, Michigan, United States. The band has describes their sound as "Blue Collar Thrash Metal".
303 Grand Magus
304 Hell

After their epic comeback in 2008, this band should be at least in the top 30. Go listen to Blasphemy And The Master, Darkhangel, or On Earth As It Is In Hell.

305 Dreamtale

Crazy good power-metal band. They are relatively new and only have 4 albums but every one is a gem! I highly recommend you try them out. They have amazing intros to their albums and are very fast-paced. Look them up

306 Arsames
307 At The Gates At The Gates At the Gates is a Swedish melodic death metal band from Gothenburg, and a major progenitor of the Gothenburg sound
308 Krokus

Krokus aren't in the top 262 please listen to the blitz, headhunter and heart attack albums (mark storace) must be one of least talked about but one of metal's best vocalists

But still the band is so under-rated. :(
