Worst Poser Metal BandsMetalhead_100 The worst of the worst of the worst. Trust me, I've been a metalhead for over 10 years now and I know what I am talking about.
The Contenders: Page 3
Ha! Cradle of Filth more blacker? You must be a troll as Cradle of Filth are probably on the same league as Black Veil Brides! They are quite the posers themselves. However, for Mayhem, I think they suck, but at least they succeeded playing real metal and as frost-bitten as a Nordic winter. - metaldude8
Why is Mayhem on this list? The music may be... questionable, but in terms of metal legitimacy, Mayhem has earned their place. Say what you will about Euronymous being a poser, regardless.
This list is becoming more and more stupid...
They were obsessed with Extremity, they wanted to be the most extreme. Euronymous used Dead's suicide... and they are real metal, they are the most underground sub genre (maybe) - LucretiaV 6 Comments
Gay scene kids aren't metal.
Christian metal band. They don't even deserve a listen for that
Dethklock is from a T.V. show, retards. It's not a serious band.
They aren't posers! That's some joke.
Not even metal, more rock. stupid person put this on here I like them
Better than the pussies who diss them.
On the border with rock and metal. - Metalhead1997V 4 Comments
Dimmu Borgir is a business about doing elaborated/catchy well played music and posing and image selling. As many of their time, they took the remnants of the black metal imagery and mixed it with a theatrical presentation, like as if they were selling characters of a movie. Of course they play very well and make sophisticated songs presented with this imagery. And probably they like what they do. But far, very far away from the concept of what was/is the true black metal, cryptic, not social, dark and distant.
Its not like their in the radio, they may not be gorgoroth but their way more metal than core or. And hellhammer from mayhem has been in this band.
Calling this pansy, watered down commercial Hot Topic mallgoth crap Black Metal is like calling Black Veil Brides Black Metal.. If you want Black Metal, then listen to some Craft, Urgehal, Setherial, Funeral Mist, Shining, Vlad Tepes, Beastcraft, Tsjuder and Krypt.
They are NOT METAL, I have a hard time even calling them hard rock, more like pop rock.
Wait they are rock they never said they we're metal what? - TheUltimateNavigator1
He's not metal, yes, but he's not a poser. - Metalhead1997
Very sappy lyrics... no metal has such sappy lyrics. - LucretiaV 3 Comments
Hetfield or lars lay with you for this comment?... the posers pay you well, this is the most important band of symphonic metal and they really know music not like your preferred band, fanatic!
Biggest poser band of all time because of their poser leader. - TheFloorHorseman
Symphonic 'Metal' more like pop music with distorted guitars
Idiot Death created death metal. (NOT POSERS) - maverick88
Id like to see a list of what the author thinks real metal is, because Death and Cannibal are two of the top names in death metal, which is the epitome of metal.
Possessed is more influential towards death metal, but Death is not posers. - Lucretia
The founders of death metal? Really? Listen to one of the songs by BVB and then "Zombie Ritual" by Death immediately afterwards. I think you know which one is better. - Metalhead1997V 7 Comments
All image, no talent, terrible sound. If you want something brutal listen to death metal, If you want to paint your face and burn churches or get lost in the woods, or just want tenitus, then by all means have at it. With that said they're still a metal band, just a terrible one
I'll be honest, if only they weren't Satanists. - Metalhead1997
Are you serious gorgoroth is one of the blackest most trve and kvlt black metal bands in existence. The only ones blacker were the original mayhem (before euronynous got killed) and watain - maverick88
Nowadays just a pop band
Weak, pathetic, & lame band.
They went from Melodeath to Posermusic
Rapcore. Not metal. - Metalhead1997
This has to be a joke
LAYER is the metal that not surrenders SLAYER defines the VIOLENCE! SLAYER is SUPREME EXTREME METAL!
S! L! A! Y! E! R!
This is obviously a joke. Remove this please.
This is the same list that put Metallica and MegaDeth and Disturbed on here what now Slayer - TheUltimateNavigator1V 6 Comments
Blind Guardian is awesome and they aren't posers.
Hey, I'm a Blind Guardian fan
The fans. Enough said.
I'm not very much familiar and don't know what's wrong with their fans. Can anybody tell more. Screaming teen girls? Dumb teen boys?
One of the best Death Metal bands to ever exist. Unfortunately everyone is too busy listening to Metalcore.
More because Varg is a murderer and a Nazi sympathizing racist than because the music is bad.
Varg has a questionable personality, but he is no poser, his metal is real. He is not even a Satanist. - Lucretia
Varg is a musical legend even though politically he is no role model. If you gave some of these emo punk kids who think they're dark listening to black veil brides songs like Dunkelheit they'd probably commit suicide.
He's not a poser, dude. He makes really good black metal albums. - Metalhead1997V 4 Comments
I'm not really sure what you're on anymore author. These guys shred, period end of sentence. This is pure thrash metal and their most recent album is completely awesome.
This is thrash - faster than metalllica.
Killswitch Engage is one of the pioneers of metal industry and the only good metalcore band. Suck it, haters. - najmul98
Metalcore is to metal what opera is to classical. Silly garbage for the masses
This band deserves to be #2
Lame alternative rock.V 1 Comment
