Title explains it. Discuss what band formed in the 21st century you think is the most influential in metal, and why!
#2
Why don't you kick off your own thread with your pick for the most influential metal band of the 21st?

Why do all these people start opinion threads without giving their own opinion?
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

Tokyo Hotel because it causes people to want to kill each other, thus creating such an aggressive sound.

No, but seriously, I'd probably say...

Hmm... 21st century bands? Can't think of any.
You are now using UG Black.
You are now using UG Classic.

I think it's probably too early to judge influential bands from the 21st century, give it a couple more years and some more will emerge, or we'll be able to look back and say that "insert band name" had a huge impact.

Perhaps by decade and not century...?

In that case, wait until next year.

Well I'm just saying man, we have 91 years left before the 22nd century, I'm sure there will be more influential bands, and I'm sure there are some right now, but just give them a little more time to mature and come into their own.

I could say the same for you; i.e. shit bands are not positive contributions.

Thank you for your worthless interjection/bad attempt at a joke.

^Agreed, none of those are 21 century bands, and Metal-archives agrees with me that only one of those bands is a metal band.

This question had me thinking for a while. But...
I would have to go with The Black Dahlia Murder.
Their first EP was released in 2001.
They have influenced a whole new wave of metal fans and bands, in the short period of a few years.
They are the most popular band that is considered to be "deathcore".
Which as you all know, is a very thriving scene right now.

Black Label Society would undeniably be the winner, but they have been releasing albums since 1998 I'm pretty sure.
Same with Lamb Of God. They have been on the go for years.

I have my bets placed on the faceless

also, I'm going to consider Cynic new, since they were gone for 15 years.
that being said....cynic will influence everyone all over again.

and unfortunately enough between the buried and me seems to be having a large effect on people, but if i continue to type about that I'll probably end up swallowing a bunch of pills and not waking up.

Man...that was the crappiest first page of responses I've seen in a while...

On topic, System of a Down. Toxicity was one of the best Death releases of the century, FACT.

Seriously though at this point I'm going to say JFAC.

Job for a cowboy seems like a fair bet.
I'm guessing if extreme metal gains any amount of popularity in upcoming years it will be because of deathcore like JFAC and Whitechapel.

Undeniably?

I don't think I'm the only one who would completely disagree

Karnivool is metal what?


I would say Agalloch. I know they are 95 but I can't think of any post 00 bands which are really influential.

How sad can a first page be? Damn...
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

This. I love BDM, but they have influenced a slew of crappy deathcore bands. A LOT of local bands sound like BDM with breakdowns, and they all, for the most part, suck. Same goes for Job For A Cowboy, except I don't like them like I do BDM.

ISIS (yes, they started in 1997. Celestial was released in 2000, though) - Basically started the recent trend of modern post metal bands. While Neurosis is the granddaddy of the genre, and ISIS took direct influence from them, the modern sound of post metal as a whole is directly linked to ISIS. Especially post-Oceanic.

I'm sure I could think of others, but ISIS is my #1 pick for 21st century influence.
