Best Heavy Metal Bandsschwanie
The Contenders: Page 4
I'm surprised that one of the biggest and most influential metal bands isn't on here
I'm surprised Annihilator is so low on the list, They've made 12 records, none of them were bad, even if some of them were just decent at best, there is no way to say any of their albums are bad. Plus, Jeff Waters is one of the best, if not the best guitar player still alive
Nobody has voted for annihilator? Just listen to Alison Hell from the "Alice In Helll" album
...and 'Feast', and 'Annihilator', and their latest. Jeff Waters makes Eddie Van Halen look tame.
Asking Alexandria is not the best band ever but they deserve a better score than this. They are one of the hardest working bands out there. Far more mature and talented than a bunch of all the new bands out there. Go check out there music, you won't be disappointed.
Killer band. AA are a very young band with all the band members being no older than 25. Very honest music with some elements of rock & roll and metalcore. After a few listens their songs begin to grow on you- very catchy groves and riffs.
The lyrics to the track Creature explain everything about Andy Worsnop's departure you need to know. That track is excellent by the way.
I like this band it should be at least 30 it higherV 14 Comments
You have to be kidding! AC/DC is one of the best metal bands ever. It has one of the greatest guitar rest ever: Angus Young. Best classic songs: whole lota Rosie, high way to hell, back in black, the razors edge... At least should be In the top five after iron maiden, Judas Priest and Metallica... If you like metal you like AC/DC!
A lot of people find AC/DC's vocals annoying, and the guitarists are nothing special. They are no better than your average metal band.
Lol! How can you even contemplate AC/DC - one of the greatest hard rock acts in history - are metal? Even worse, no metal band worth their salt are even influenced by them in any way, shape or form? Are you the individual who said 'Metallica aren't heavy, they're thrash? '
I agree. Heard the other day that the highest selling hard rock album of all time is Back in Black. 23. I don't think so. They are like The Rolling Stones of Heavy Metal. Along with AeroSmith
Simple the BEST!V 11 Comments
Best guitar. Best bass. Best drums. Best throat.
Best death metal should be at no.3
Wow! What can I say about this band, that hasn't already been written on here. Yep! -AMORAL truly is the Classic Rock Of The 21st Century! I've been spreading the word, about them, to my friends, to try to get the band more exposure, in the U.S. we've really needed a fresh sound, for a long, long time... And AMORAL has done it! HANDS DOWN!... Best band ever! I absolutely agree... Ari Koivunen has got to be THE.. BEST.. SINGER.. IN.. THE.. WORLD!... These guys also seem to be down to earth, enjoy what they do, and fame hasn't gone to their heads -that's what makes them all the more awesome. -plus they have such great stage presence and can put on one amazing live performance!... So, if you haven't heard or seen them yet, don't miss out any longer! Go check em' out, on Facebook AMORAL and also Ari Koivunen... I promise you, they will not disappoint!
This band is awesome! Classic Rock Of The 21st Century - yeah baby! Guitar riffs, versatile sound and off course vocals! It's smthn amaizing I think, cause I've never heard something like Ari's voice. It's absolutely new wave in rock-music, check it out and you won't be disappointed!
You are right, its absolute necessary to vote for Amoral, they need to get heard allover. Just saw them a month ago playing in Helsinki.. Awesome, versatile, strong metal with rocky spirit.
Wish you all the best guys. Wish to see your soon playing live.. And your upcoming album as well. You have unique music full of various atmospheres and catchy moments.V 21 Comments
Sorry I know my english isn't the best but Sabaton behind bands who never played one metal riff in their life, this can't be real. They've got epic lyrics and riffs. This must be said.
This band is the best their music is just awesome and the singer: Joakim Broden is really really good
Epic music epic lyrics best band hands down
Best band everV 5 Comments
Because they don't move people emotionally, that's why they're not the best. Yes, they are technical as hell, but apart from that what? Bullet For My Valentine's Matt Tuck can have a crowd eating out the palm of his hand while singing a song about fighting with his partner, but what's Meshuggah's answer to that? The same thing plagues many metal bands, because it takes talent not to be corny whilst doing it. TesseracT took the best of Meshuggah's algorithms and created passionate, progressive albums of their own.
It really saddens me to see all these alternative and nu metal bands that are higher on this list than meshuggah. Meshuggah has honed there craft over the years and they blow me away every time I listen to them. I'm just glad Tool got a reasonable place
How is this band ranked so low. They are a difficult band to grasp at first ( if your close minded) This band screams talent extremly complex poly rythms, amazing catchy groovy riffs, very deep meaning behind all their songs. And fredrik thordendal can pull off some of the most complex solos in the industry. They don't showcase their individual talents excessively within the band. I dare anyone to listen to the Obzen or Nothing album start to finish you will be hooked. And if not you're probably not very open minded. Meshuggah for the win!V 1 Comment
UFO is a classic metal band that should be in the to ten without a doubt. Schenker is awesome listen to Rock bottom Live and your hooked forever
Best Hard rock band. Magical, elegant, powerful, hard rocking. It's just great, the pure thing
Come on, Accept is one of the greatest bands of all times, started in the early 80's and still rocking. Listen to their greatest classical songs: ball to the wall, metal heart, princess of the dawn, head over heels, breaker... And some of their newest: Teutonic terror, blood of nations... They are true musicians, one of the greatest guitarist, just listen to them... True metal band! They should be between the top ten.
Speed metal born from this band with the song: "Fast as a shark". This is not a single band, this is a school of heavy metal. Blood of the Nation is an amazing album.
These guys have been rocking' since the 80's. Blood of the Nation, released in 2010.. Check it out. Awesome songs through out the whole album.
The greatest ever!V 10 Comments
King Diamond singing in a crazy heavy band with awesome riffs. After breaking up in the early 80's with two amazing albums to their credit, came back in the 90's to continue with 5 more awesome albums.
Yes, I love their early eps and first two albums. There's never been a more theatrical satanist metaller than King Diamond.
Volbeat is the number one band on the planet right now July 2013
This is one of the best bands there is ever made - Schulm3
Number one metal band of 2001 to so far...
How is this ranked way down here? Give it a listen, I my opinion they are much better than disturbed or slipknot! Up there with A7X!V 1 Comment
HELL YEAH! Love they're songs, Fake It and Broken, Seether is consistently putting out great content.
Not to heavy but definitely good enough to be on your top 10
To the top with this one! I love bad company, the bleeding and generation dead the most!V 1 Comment
For those who haven't listen to drowning pool, you in for a treat.
"bodies" is one of there most like well-known songs.
A greta album for new listeners of this band is the "sinner" album.
You will fall in love with this band after listening to that album.
Love they're song Bodies
Should be in top 30

One of the best Heavy Metal bands of all time... They are really under rated.. But man are they awesome! And some bands here are not even Heavy Metal bands but are way ahead in the list.. Are you kidding me? Led Zeppelin? Zeppelin's a rock band.. And the last time I checked Megadeth and Metallica are still playing METAL not Heavy Metal...
Best Heavy Metal Bands are JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN & SKID ROW
Nobody.. And I mean nobody, is better than these 3 in Heavy Metal.
My favorite is SKID ROW though!
This band is incredible, I think they're under rated.. Sebastian Bach has got to have on of the best metal/rock voices of all time.
Top ten band!
Subhuman Race and Slave to the Grind still last today.
Old formation is respectable as top 20V 4 Comments
