Best Heavy Metal Bandsschwanie
The Contenders: Page 5
These guys rock. Had to vote for them, just because of how underrated they are. Just listen to tracks such as "Dead Winter Dead" and "Hall of the Mountain King", both title tracks to even greater albums. You won't be disappointed.
Most underrated band I'm history. No point of trying to explain in a few words what as building on for years. Does Trans-Siberian Orchestra even ring a bell?
I cannot believe nobody voted for savatage
You guys know nothing
Savatage at #151 you people don't know sh*t. Savatage at least be in the top 15 they are far better than 90% of the so-called metal bands on this pathetic list. People get some music knowledge and stop basing your opinion on popularity and hype, poser's.
Not heavy metal, but the best and most under-rated trash metal band ever. Unlike Metallica, they have great vocals
Really, Overkill not mentioned until #123?
Not heavy metal? Who on Earth would say that? You do realise that crossover, metalcore, deathcore, thrash, NWOBHM, death, black, post-hardcore etc. Are all metal movements, retard?
Oh, I get the prank. Lol. Yes, Blitz is a unique talent, no question, but I find his thrash rhythm guitaring to be trash.V 2 Comments
The list gets better as it goes. Everyone knows Demanufacture is one of the greatest thrash albums ever made. And if you say it's not metal, here's a hint: it's called thrash METAL!
+5 for Demanufacture, Obsolete, and Genexus. Demanufacture is undeniably one of the best thrash albums ever made.
Primal Fear is the consummate heavy metal band, their brand of classic power metal is timeless and they do what they do extremely well
How is rob zombie not even top 20, people who vote on here are retarded
Seriously, way higher on the list! Great instrumentals, vocals and lyrics-basic of all metal heads!
They deserve to be way higher on this list
Great Heavy Metal Band!
Not number 1 but way way higher than 90
Chris Jericho rocks! Leader a wrestler. Fozzy is a band who sings just like Ozzy Osbourne. Fozzy is good Heavy metal band.
Black Sabbath may have invented heavy metal but Chris Jericho invented Black Sabbath because Chris Jericho is the inventor of everything!
Chris Jericho is the best singer in the world! He is awesome!
My favourite from The Muppets.V 2 Comments
Lot of people said Ozzie had a great instinct for hand picking his guitar players. Zakk did a great job with Ozzie, and cannot say that I agree with his work in BLS. Of course the guitar work is awesome but the alternative edge draws the metal concept from the songs, it does not go with the Ozzie-like style he is trying to portray, however it should be placed between 20 and 40 on the list.
Zakk wylde gives excellent vocals and has plenty of emotion just listen to dead medow, blood is thicker than water. I also just love the riffs and melodies such as in demise of sanity or funeral bell.
#78? Some of the best music, lyrics and guitar rifts of all time...a true metal aficionado would have BLS in the the top 10 at the very least.V 1 Comment
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
Surely deserves a place in the top 10
Its my fvrt band
Drummer is god
Fast and dynamic twin pedal
Best symphonic death metal band Ever!
'Fall of Ideals' is one the greatest THRASH albums of all time, they have never claimed to be metalcore, and are a top-shelf metal band that capable of executing any style of metal they want. Incredible musicians, too.
This band has everything to offer. Unlike many bands ranked ahead of this, they are actually metal. Not a single album has disappointed me and they will continue to be one of my favorite bands to listen to.
What is wrong with everyone? 15% of the bands on this list aren't even Metal Bands!
I almost cried when I saw this down at 95. 95! WHAT!?!?!? THIS BAND ROCKS! - heavymetalrocker777V 4 Comments
In my opinion the best band I have ever heard! Chino is an absolute lyrical genius and deserves a much larger following. The music from this band can evolve from sinister to Beautifully uplifting in just one track. They should be number 1 in any list!
Just listen to there song Elite
Chino sounds like the lead singer of The Cure. No, really. He does.V 1 Comment
I love TFK to death, but... They're not metal, they're hard rock. Put them on another list/
This band in my opinion is one of metals yet to be fully discovered gold mine and should seriously be looked into they've been around for longer than most people realize and they really arnt that bad a good dose of tfk (thousand foot krutch) and I'm ready to hi the wolrd
This band is like Slipknot, Marilyn Mansion and Ramstein getting it on and having the most wicked metal baby ever. UM, or something like that... All I have to say is Devils Night is the best song out right now!
Seriously?!? 155? MIW is great! It belongs to top 10 com'n :/
Black Sabbath without Ozzy is not Back Sabbath, it is Heaven and Hell. Both vocalists were indispensable.V 2 Comments
Amazing band! Every song is good, heavy and every band member is so talented (especially the drummer and vocals).
Brilliant live band and all really nice people willing to spend time after a tiring gig to talk to fans. Talk and listen! Modest and appreciative people.
Best band on planet earth
Probably one of the best metal bands in the 2010'sV 2 Comments
Rush at 87? Are you people insane? First of all three person band. And one of those happens to be Neil Peart the best drummer of all time.
Actually you can not rate them in a list of heavy metal bands. They should be placed on the top 10 of best 100 progressive/hard-rock bands ever together with Cream, Hendrix, Zepp and the likes.
"Rush" - Always amazing musicians skill wow
"86" nah sorry mate
Don't classified them as HM
But best musicians ever
Should be number 1
