I'm looking for some new metal bands that have empowering content... in the lyrics and music. Lyrics that bring you to your feet. Lyrics that are... existential, inspiring, empowering... etc

I think All That Remains, really does it in that department, are there any others?

and of course... all metal is empowering to an extent...t hats what metal is about... but i'm looking for bands thats really go for this. thanks!

Jonas brothers?

Oh, and metal section would be the best place to ask, though you might get some quality answers...^

Steer clear of power metal. Depressing music, you wouldn't like it.

All That Remains doesn't really fit those criteria, to be honest. Great band nevertheless.

I know what you mean, about all that remains, their lyrics are like "**** you, i wont give up" (if i explained that right)
but try In Flames =)

Lost Horizon

"Don't forget you are metal, not some ass-kissing *****!"

You know you can't resist this


edit: check this **** out
Walking in the shadow of life's dreary side
Fallen down memory lane
Winds whip the world, just like the woes whip my mind
Where is that time when "right now" was The words
When the heart burned with will like a flare
All I now keep is just damned commonplace misery

Hey man! What is this?!
Sounds like wail of a wimp
Did you let loser side take command?!
Where's the warrior in you
And the spirit he got
You say - "lost"
No! It's somewhere inside
And you know there's a force that unites all of us
Leave the wasteland we together will!
If you're broken, remember, you got faith within us!
Take now your next deep breath and revive
your old strength

Facing the abyss of heart's lonely grief
The bitch has polluted my soul
Rains flood the earth, just like the tears flood my eyes
Never again will my life be the same
Nothing can heal up my wounds
Guile and disgrace shall now follow me into the end

I just can not believe it
It's too weak to be true
Have you really forgotten your worth?!
Can't you see victory!?
You are now free again!
Look at me!
Yeah! I live my own life
If you once tasted treason from a female - leave that!
Every warrior has a gash on his sword
Don't forget you are metal, not some ass-kissing *****
Take some under your wings, but she must kiss the ring!

Winds of metal, make me once again
feel clear air's breath blowing in my wings!

I possess magic force
I am free in my words
Whole the world lays right below my feet
Life of duties and dogmas are just frames formed by rats
How'd I know?
Hey! I'm a guardian of truth
Now! Is really the time to wake up you old jade
Such as Phoenix spreads his firewings
I will help you remember by kicking your ass

And the will shall return
And again hearts shall burn
All the horns now will sing
Leading you back to the metal winds

Trivium's The Crusade album has a few anthems on it, namely, Anthem.

And I agree with you about All That Remains.
I listen to it before my High School (AMERICAN) Football games.

Also, Dragonforce.

I'm totally serious they kick ass in an uplifting way.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

Pantera's got some motivating songs.


If you like beating the **** out of others, and think that's motivating.
#16
A lot of these lyrics I just can't take seriously.

I checked out all these bands, all good music but, lyrically can't compete with All That Remains for this purpose. I was hoping there would be more similar to All That Remains.

How about a thread not about metal? Also there is probably no such thing as a metal band with the lyrics that you want.

Yeah, I suggest All That Remains if you're into you know... cutting your wrists and stuff. Well, that first post suggesting Jonas Brothers fits in to this thread just as much as ATR does.

Anywho, aside from pussy imitation metal. Let's get to the real stuff. Don't listen to anyone who says Pantera, Metallica, Megadeth, or Dragonforce is brutal and makes them wanna beat the **** out of someone. I'll list my favorites of a few genres.

Death Metal - Cannibal Corpse (You can never go wrong with CC)
Technical DM - Necrophagist
Progressive DM - Hate Eternal
Melodic DM - Kalmah
Folk Metal - Finntroll
Viking Metal - Einherjer
Black Metal - Gorgoroth
Melodic BM - Dissection
Symph. BM - Emperor
Heavy Metal - Iron Maiden
Power Metal - Hammerfall/Rising Force

Also try bands like Wintersun, Immortal, Deicide, Whitechapel, Morbid Angel, Korpiklaani, etc...

Looks like as much of a logical band name as the others he listed.

You are an incredibly ignorant man... as I once was. I used to want to have nothing to do with modern music period let alone "All That Remains"... I was only into jazz, classical, and classic rock/metal. I realize now that, this view is garbage. Download an "All that Remains" album and you may be pleasantly surprised. Many of these bands like "atreyu" I agree with you on, however don't dismiss every band under the "metal-core" label as wrist cutting, money making, pop metal. I see "All That Remains" as a progressive metal band more than metalcore... they are skilled musicians.

My point brutally proven once again... Do you know what my display picture is... no... you ignorantly assumed I am an emo.

It is the album cover for the classic Judas Priest album British Steel... DO YOU REALIZE THE MISTAKE YOU JUST MADE???? CAN YOU NAME A SINGLE ALBUM/BAND THAT IS MORE METAL THAN MY DISPLAY PICTURE ALBUM COVER???

Have you seen Metal: A headbangers Journey? Did you see the part where Scott Ian from Anthrax, claims this Priest album to be "the first REAL metal album in existence".

You just like... humiliated yourself bro, my Judas Priest - British Steel, album cover display pic, cannot be more metal.

I didn't recognize it, and I'm more metal than anyone else on the face of the planet.

With the exception of maybe Johann Hegg or Glen Benton.
