Top Ten Metal Bands Of All Time

music

#21

Red hot chili peppers


#22

No Gojira love. Surprised.


#23

Surprised to see some dispute about sabbath being a metal band but everyone going with faith no more… never considered them a metal band


#24

But i suppose my list would have godflesh…


#25

Far too into whales, aren’t they?


#26

I’d consider anything under this and more to fall under the metal umbrella


#27

slade!


#28

What’s that band that does the one that goes “dun dun dun duggaduggaduggaduggadun dun dun daaaaaa daaaaa duggadaduggada WHOOOAAAAAARRRRRRRRR bradaddadaaddadadadad duggadun dun dun dun”? Them, I reckon.


#29

Sabbath are Metal in the same way that Iggy is Punk.


#30

Obviously wrong. Everybody knows grunge was just a fashion scene not a metal sub-genre.


#31

Mastodon
Converge
Tool / APC
Kylesa
Faith No More
Alice In Chains
Deftones
Kvelertak
Monster Magnet
Russian Circles / Isis / Pelican / Cult Of Luna etc

They’re really good.


#32

Sonic Youth


#33

Julia Holter?


#34

Decent take


#35

Legit love Julia Holter but also Meshuggah


#36

I don’t really know enough about metal to have a top 10, but there’s a bunch of bands that do sound like that that I do really like; Meshuggah and Opeth and that sort of thing? Is that a thing? Also the ones that sound like Mogwai but slower and downtuned and more angry. Isis was one but it’s kind of hard to say you’re a fan of them these days.


#37

Well I’ll be, looks like the door has been opened to putting The Smashing Pumpkins as the #1 metal band of all time.


#38

well black metal floats in a cloud of controversy on political views and such but Burzum’s music is amazing.
really dig mayhem’s ep Deathcrush. Specially the Silvester Anfang intro (which was made by a former member of tangerine dream i think?) Talk about concept of making it sound as fucked up as possible. masterpieces .


#39

Fuck all this lame non-metal shit. Deafheaven are the best that ever were.


#40

We really should be giving top elevens here. So, in order of when I first heard them:

  1. Meat Loaf (top pick - Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell)

  2. Iron Maiden (Seventh Son mibbe, but it’s too hard to pick from so many classics)

  3. Guns ‘n’ Roses (controversy alert: Use Your Illusion I)

  4. The Wildhearts (Earth vs. The Wildhearts or P.H.U.Q.)

  5. Sunn O))) (Black One for the Metal, Monoliths & Dimensions for the jazz)

  6. Earth (everything, but especially Earth 2)

  7. Wolves in the Throne Room (Two Hunters)

  8. Brain Donor (Love, Peace & Fuck - Julian Cope, Doggen and Kevlar FTW)

  9. Sleep (Dopesmoker, obv.)

  10. OM (possibly controversially, Adviatic Songs)

  11. Pallbearer (Foundations of Burden)

and for a bonus 'best metal album I’ve heard in ages," have Bell Witch - Mirror Reaper
