Best Heavy Metal Bandsschwanie
The Contenders: Page 18
Skillet is one of my favorite bands of all time, but they're not metal. People need to know the difference between Metal and Hard Rock.
Skillet Rocks and is one of the best bans ever. They should be at least 4th
Its an epic band love the rise albumV 3 Comments
You have got cool vocal
The widest vocal range I have ever anticipated for a heavy metal band. Should be in the top 30.
Next short-lived fart in the wind fad please!
There still awesome... five that much... Best ever..
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.

I love BVB, they are the reason why I like heavy metal
People who think of rock as stupid is the NUMERO UNO STUPIDA PUTA! it's Spanish by the way. By the way I don't know how I should label myself since I Like all kinds of music like pop (Taylor swift, Britney spears etc.). I hate one direction and Justin beiber. I love rock like bvb, slipknot, evanescence etc.. I love Korean pop the most like bts, shinee, snsd etc. Plus I go to a school that says NO URBAN CLOTHING. JUST PLAIN JANE UNIFORMS!V 3 Comments
They are more recent than a few of the other bands listed but I believe that August Burns Red should be in the top ten AT THE VERY LEAST. They have inspired me as a musician and as a person. They a great bunch of guys and they love their fans. Their music is beyond belief as they create such a great atmosphere when they perform live. They have technical riffs and they have brutal breakdowns. To top it all off their music is giving a positive message.
#236, seriously? These guys should be in the top two hundred. They definitely stand out in the metalcore genre and are not a 0-0-0-1 band, unlike Asking Alexandria. The guitar riffs are very melodic, brutal and technical and the lyrics are some of the most thought-provoking and positive ever. Their music is also atmospheric. - 3seven5V 1 Comment
"Pour some sugar on me, in the name of love" Love it
What?! I hope America remembers those big hits like I wanna rock and we're not gonna take it! Those were classics! Dee snider is a legend as well! Come on people!
Glam metal, not heavy metal. Still rocks!
American rock band, good and professional concert facility for the band in future, could be horsens musicart city in denmark.
I mean come on it's Randy Rhoads
This is below bands like Led Zeppelin? What the poop?!?!?!
Rhoads? He was with Cavazzo? My goodness!
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".
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.
Now you'll all be thinking I'm wrong however Queen invented Speed Metal and listen to songs like Liar, Father to Son, Ogre Battle, Brighton Rock (Jimi Hendrix meets Jimmy Page), Now I'm Here, Stone Cold Crazy and more, Queen were outstnading to begin with.
Queen sounds like pop rock in my humble opinion not metal but they're goodV 4 Comments
The best place for Bon Jovi to record their next record would be Pluto.
Good place to record album in future for bon jovi, could be puk studio, city Gjerlev near randers in denmark
Good and professional concert facility for bon jovi in future, could be horsens musicart city in denmark.
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.
333 for NickelBack? no way, that's too high they don't even deserve that rank lol
They aren't even metal! - HYDRAflash
Country rock and light rock
This band is brutalV 1 Comment
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
