Really? Toxic Holocaust, Bio-Cancer, Municipal Waste? - Metalhead1997
Suicidal Tendencies is great - Caleb9000
I only enjoy Municipal Waste, but the genre is just terrible. All these bands do is play fast for the sake of playing fast. And most of their lyrical themes are about drinking, parting, headbanging, moshing, playing their own genre, and other stupid random. There are some terrible thrash bands that aren't really crossover, but definitely fit within the genre. (I'm looking at you... Lich King) If you want GOOD thrash metal, I would recommend Dark Angel, Sadus, and late '80s and early '90s era of Sepul-tura! And for the record, I'm the one who added this genre to the list.
Oh come on not even a thing - Lucretia
Nope, Blackcore is very real... and very bad. It's technically called "Blackened Deathcore". - ThatoneMetalhead
Pirate metal is a sub genre of power metal that mixes it with folk metal that often incorporates sailor-sequences vocal melodies. Running Wild is a good example of a pirate metal band. - Caleb9000
Like I said about viking metal. You're making a genre out of a lyrical theme which is ridiculous.
There is NO such subgenre - it's folk metal with lyrics about pirates. Music is still folk metal. - Metal_Treasure
Alestorm. - Metalhead1997
Technical death metal was awesome in the 1990's. But sadly nowadays a lot of the tech-death genre is full of horrible wank-fest bands who just play fast for the sake of it without any real passion. ( I'm looking at you Brain Drill)
I like Slam. It definitely isn't for everyone. If you like brutal death metal bands like Dying Fetus, then you would like Slam Death Metal. Check out bands like Katalepsy, Abominable Putridity, Ingested, or Kraanium - ryanrimmel
Really? Acid Witch, Electric Wizard, Sleep, THOSE bands suck?! You need to branch out more often, dude. - Metalhead1997
You're literally making a metal subgenre out of a lyrical theme. Enough said!
Most people don't know what Viking metal is. It isn't Amon Amarth (they are melodeth). Viking metal is a genre that mixes folk metal with epic doom metal, sometimes with black metal. A good example of a Viking metal album would be Hammerheart by Bathory. Amorphis' "Tales From The Thousand Lakes could also be called Viking metal. - Caleb9000
I voted just so I could say this. Amon Amarth aren't Viking Metal! And no, Viking Metal is not just a lyrical theme, it's an actual sound. Just listen to 'Hammerheart' by Bathory
Its good actually think Amon Amarth - Lucretia
Deafheaven are great, Alcest are as well (for example), no matter who are listening to them or how they look like. Now, stop being a huge retard who wants to hear something he has already heard and can't stand unusual outfits and aesthetics.
An example? Deafhaven. This genre is a sub genre of black metal which hipsters sing about. Ultimately, it ruins black Metal. Absolute turd of a genre
With Nu metal should be on top ~
At least it's at the bottom. Symphonic Metal is one of the most underrated and most awesome metal subgenres!
It's just really lame music for goth kids
When brutal death first started, it had great bands (Suffocation, Cryptopsy, early Cannible Corpse, Devourment), but a lot of the modern bands are clones with forgettable and laughable music. The only two that actually seem to put out quality music are Nile and Brain Drill. Cattle Decapitations last album in 2015 was also awesome.
Cannibal corpse are very nice
I LOVE BRUTAL DEATH METAL WHO PUT THIS ON THIS LIST I SHALL EVISCERATE THEM
To heavy for somne people buit the fans... they loe it - Lucretia
Cattle Decapitation. - Metalhead1997
Again, this joke is retarded! - Neonco31
This isn't at all a cross between pop and death metal which for work reason some people believe it is. It actually is more a cross between death metal and the new wave of British heavy metal. Check out pre clay an inflames, non mid period soilwork, Carcass's heartwork, dark tranquility, Amon Amarth, and at the gates
What?! Arch Enemy is melodic death metal and they're awesome! Same with The Agonist!
Why is the third famous genre of metal here?
This is the best death metal to me - LucretiaV 6 Comments
This is one of the best metal subgenres.
Why is this even here? Progressive metal is one of the best metal sub-genres. - zxm
There are some good progressive metal bands. Others are just really generic.
My favorite sub genre. - Caleb9000
Only few bands do it right. Rest are just monotonous
Most Neo-Classical Metal artists are ridiculously good at what they do... They're just a bunch of wankers. It's a pretentious re-hash of Yngwie and Dream Theater. They've got the technical skill down, I just don't think the music they make is particularly interesting or enjoyable.
Haggard is a pretty great band!
I hate this genre, I don't understand how and why people love this genre! This is a pathetic and messed up subgenre of metal ever!
