Bands that sound outstanding live.

What do you guys think are some great bands which sound phenomenal even while live?

For me, no one can top Dissection's sound while live(pre-incarceration). Jon's vocals sounded even better than they were on the albums, and the guitar playing is top notch.

Another great one is Intestine Baalism in their one live video in Japan. Beast guitar playing, vocals could be slightly better though it can't be helped.

Opeth and Cynic, because they manage to sound close to their studio sound while maintaining limitless energy and presence.

Although many dont see them as a metal band, Converge rape the stage.

Inquisition do an incredible job of sounding full even though there's just the two of them. Dagon's tone (and playing of course) really is something else.

Muse is awesome live, I'm not even a huge Muse fan but was blown away by their stage show. I liked the Opeth show that I saw (very accurate to the records) but didn't quite have the energy I was hoping for from one of my favorite bands (then again they were touring behind Heritage). Mastodon was great live as well. Obscura is a great live band. And Devin Townsend is a crazy man who comes across really well with lots of energy live. ...And then there is Slayer, who are fantastic live, I couldn't under the fascination with them until I saw them live, much better then on record (and they have some good records).

I find that RHCP live sometimes sounds better than in the studio.

Saxon and Manowar were fantastic when I saw them. Manowar were flawless, especially Eric Adam's vocals. The Answer were great aswell very exciting and really got the crowd going, moshpits, crowd surfing, the singer jumpin into the crowd etc etc

Scale the Summit was intense live. Their sound was literally perfect.

Suffocation. Their music may have gone downhill in quality but they still put on an intense live show. Very tight playing, massive tone, funny banter from Frank, and a very energetic performance with a great stage presence. Caught 'em a few years back right before Blood Oath was released. Best show I've been too. Infecting the Crypts was savage.

Yeah you can tell the Suffocation guys really put everything into playing live, and really enjoy it. Great to see from a band on the go as long as they are. Even the wigger stage moves are entertaining as shit.

I should have clarified. Metal bands, please. Typically(but not always), other non-metal bands consist of one guitarist playing simple chords, while another one just sings. It's not that hard to **** up.
Just sayin.

Pentagram is always killer. Bolt Thrower was great when I saw them, too.

^^That comment is absolutely ridiculous. Personally, the best shows I've ever attended were non-metal bands. As much as I love metal, seeing it live just doesn't do anything for me. With other bands it can become more than the music in a way, which rarely happens for me at metal shows. I'm enjoying myself but am often underwhelmed.

Of the metal bands I've seen, Immolation and Primordial are probably the only ones I'd say were truly great.

From what I've seen, the Human Abstract is absurd live. Protest put on a flawless show when I saw them. I've never seen a bad performance from Cynic. Opeth used to be perfect live (not so much vocally these days). BTBAM is absurdly tight.

That's strange, I was actually going to say Inquisition as well. Of the many shows I've seen, theirs may have been most impressive. Just two guys, and I think they sounded even better live than on album. They nailed absolutely everything. Extremely professional as well: Before they went on stage while the other bands were playing, the guitarist was tweaking, tuning, "lubing" up his guitar and just playing through his songs without any amplification for probably an hour or two.

Also, the singer chugged an entire bottle of honey right before going on stage. I guess the consistency of it helps for his vocal performance. I should've taken a picture of the corpse-paint clad man guzzling down his precious honey.

Moonsorrow puts on a great show. Enslaved as well. Otherwise I havent seen to many that are really amazing.

And Opeth bore me to tears live. They're tight and play the songs perfectly but have literally no energy, aside from Mendez.

Interesting, may have to try that to see what happens haha. Autopsy is pretty awesome live, Chris Reifert is too intense
