Worst Poser Metal BandsMetalhead_100
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...
LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL! One of the original black metal bands and you think they're POSERS?! - Metalhead1997V 5 Comments
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
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.
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. - Metalhead1997
They are the first death metal band
how dare you? - HCmetalhead
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.
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.V 1 Comment
They are NOT METAL, I have a hard time even calling them hard rock, more like pop rock.
He's not metal, yes, but he's not a poser. - Metalhead1997
The band that proved that you have to be pretty to play metal. Winger, Warrant, Cinderella, Dokken...they owe it ALL to these schmucks! Not to mention BJ fans are the biggest asses on God's green Earth!
Bon Jovi sucks! Jon's voice makes me puke all the time~V 1 Comment
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
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 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.
This is real metal
He's not a poser, dude. He makes really good black metal albums. - Metalhead1997V 3 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
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
How are they even here?
NOT EVEN METAL
Whoever put this here has the maturity of a 5 year old.
I agree 100%. My 3 year old brother could make a better list than this, and take dio off!
Those who have seen their poser bands pun in this list, put the Holy Dio here just to ruin the list - Odinest
Whoever put Dio on this list deserves to be tortured and burned alive.V 4 Comments
Primus has never claimed to be metal
Strange bastards. - Metalhead1997
Primus are the biggest fakers ever
Rapcore. Not metal. - Metalhead1997
Morbid angel, Death, Cannibal Corpse, whats next are you going to say slayer are posers
Morbid angel and death I don't even know what to say
This is real metal
