Top 10 Worst Metal Bands for Beginner FansSYLFan1234 This isn't the same as the list of Metal Bands for Beginner Fans. It's a list of bands that would be inappropriate to recommend to people who are new to metal.
I'm not saying these bands are bad or anything. I actually love some of them. It's just that they would be too extreme, explicit, or complex or beginners.
If you really want to get people into metal, I'd suggest you recommend them some good old traditional metal or power metal. Those genres are at least not too extreme or progressive.
The Top Ten
This is a legit satanic band. They were know for putting up naked crucifixes and decapitated goat heads at a concert once.
Black metal would be a terrible genre to recommend to beginners because not only is it extreme, but that most bands in the genre try to be as satanic as possible. So don't recommend this group or other black metal groups to beginners. - SYLFan1234
Another satanic band on the list. All the members of this band are mentally insane. Their lead singer would always cut himself onstage with glass and paint his face like a corpse. He later committed suicide in which their guitarist took a picture of his dead body and used it as the cover of one of their live albums. This sure is some creepy stuff right here for beginners. - SYLFan1234
This band has a lot of sexual and gory album covers. And their violent song titles would absolutely scare away beginners. - SYLFan1234
Similar to Cannibal Corpse in a way. The music video to their song called Forced Gender Reassignment was so violent and messed up that it got banned from YouTube. So yeah. Don't recommend these guys or the video to beginners. - SYLFan1234
Good thing it wasn't the first metal I got to know about lol - Ananya
Definitely one of the most offensive bands ever formed. Their song titles are enough to offend beginners everywhere. Song titles include Hitler Was a Sensative Man, I Sent a Thank You Card to the Guy Who Raped You, and I Gave NAMBLA Pictures of Your Kid (look up NAMBLA and you'll see why beginners would absolutely hate this band). - SYLFan1234
Watch at your own risk. The video to Ohrwurm is even worse than Forced Gender Reassignment... - SYLFan1234
They're not legit satanists (heck their frontman is Catholic), but they use satanic music for shock value. They mostly sing about satanism, serial killers, war, they even have a song about Nazi torture doctor Josef Mengele. This band would be very bad for beginners. - SYLFan1234
This band mostly sings about satanism and gore, but I think Trump haters would love them considering how they have a video where they chop off Donald Trump's head. - SYLFan1234
They're not too heavy and they use clean vocals. But the reason I put them on here is because most people can't handle complex music and DT is very, very complex. - SYLFan1234
They're not too heavy, but the cover of one of their albums features the frontman's sphincter (Google sphincter and you'll see what I mean). - SYLFan1234
