Best Heavy Metal Bandsschwanie
The Contenders: Page 5
One of the best guitarists out there and I'm loving the contrast of metal with the singers clean vocals. The number 1 reason I am loving them right now is that their drummer (Dave Mackintosh) delivers such an passionate and skilled drum beat and style. That is dedication and passion at its best. Rock On!
Very multi-talented band, filled with raw energy and power.
They should be in the top ten no questions about it
DragonForce is actually Power Metal, Extreme Power Metal, and Speed Metal. But still some of their songs are heavy metal and are epic such as, Cry Thunder, which is one of their top tracks and one of the most famous song in the world. :0------------0:V 6 Comments
Amon Amarth is so epic they should be in the top ten
71?! Edguy, bullet for my valentine etc over Amon amarth?
I think Amon Amarth has to become first or second place because it's the best death-metal-band!V 3 Comments
See Bolt-Thrower live and you will understand. Bolt-Thrower is the heaviest band in existence. Once you see them you will be changed.
These guys are still going? My goodness. They were crushing back in the day.
Along with Faith No More/Mr Bungle, 'The Big Four', Mordred, Jane's Addiction and a few others they helped set the template for modern metal!
Amazing vocals, great guitar work from Michael amott and kick ass drums. This is my fave band
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
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
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
Lol. Everyone I know rates them highly. As do I. Across infernal wastelands, many miles of sunburnt hell...
This band is underrated
They created black metal
Where is Type O Negative!
He is a shock rocker and the anti-christ superstar. He got churches mad at him and was featured on talk shows because of the things he does live. His art is dark but has a lot of meaning to it. His lyrics mean something and most of society won't understand what that is
One of the best band! Sold more than 50 millions of albums, create his own art and most of the newest bands are inspired by Marilyn Manson! The band are awesome, think about John 5, Twiggy Ramirez, Madonna Wayne Pogo, Tim Skold, Ginger Fish and Brian Warner :) This band should be on the top 10
Marilyn Manson, no doubt is an amazing band, which has gone through so many different genre's throughout the years. However the only heavy metal album they ever released was Antichrist Superstar, everything after that never even touched heavy metal outside of a few singular songs Manson made (Eg No Reflection, Burning Flag)
The sound of the time.V 8 Comments
Surely deserves a place in the top 10V 2 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
What why no top 10
This band is literally for pusssies
Nope not here they belong in top 10 they are fantastic
Not MetalV 4 Comments
'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
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
