331 Wehrmacht

Hadn't given this one much thought. Remove it if you wish. Just old vinyl I own, that's all. No offense.

'Shark Attack' and 'Biermacht' probably haven't aged well, but they were the kings of blast beats in the 80's.

332 Charred Walls of the Damned

Tim 'Ripper' Owens fronted supergroup - and no, they're not the best band ever, as though this were a Miss Universe pageant. They are a quality progressive metal band, that's all.

333 Nailbomb

Brutal Cavalera-led supergroup.

334 Killer Be Killed

Brutal Cavalera-led supergroup.

335 Redcoats

Redcoats is a Melbourne-based rock band signed to Island Records Australia (not to be confused with their American contemporaries 'The Red Coats'). Although they are recent and have only released one album to date (self titled: redcoats 2011), I would put them in the same category as recent Led Zeppelin influenced clones such as Wolfmother or Dead City Ruins. Their fragmentation could be described as alternative metal. They have yet to prove themselves globally, but their debut self titled promises a bright future ahead. Every self-respecting metalhead should afford them a listen, and I challange anyone to deny their future potential could be as big as guns 'n roses once were.

336 Kissin’ Dynamite
337 Dalriada Dalriada is a folk metal band from Sopron, Hungary that was formed in 1998 as Echo of Dalriada, but shortened their name to Dalriada in late 2006. Their third studio album Kikelet and all subsequent albums were successful in the top ten of the official Mahasz music charts.

One of the best folk metal bands! They sing in Hungarian, and the best metal band that doesn't sing in English, second to Rammstein.

338 Mayhem Mayhem Mayhem is a Norwegian black metal band formed in 1984 in Oslo, regarded as one of the pioneers of the Norwegian black metal scene. V 1 Comment
