I like a lot of those bands, but for different reasons, therefore the list is flawed because it is all a matter of opinion. If they were not ranked and just in a list then people would probably agree with a lot of those being on there.

19 is more cause for concern I believe

Also, this

just to clear shit up for TS, Black Sabbath is the band that should be at the beginning of that list.

You should put SOAD higher up and maybe include... The Gothenberg metal scene up in Sweden... And Metallica isn't that great...
#12
Honestly, I think the list is pretty good, but you're just beggin to get your ass kicked. Personally, I think Metallica deserves number 1, but believe me, a LOT of people don't. Prepare to take some heat.

Oh yeah, and go ahead and slap in Children of Bodom and Behemoth.
Actually, while you're at it, GET LIKIN PARK OFF THE LIST NOW!!!
#13
Thread starter, half of your list is not actually metal, some are but not allowed in this forum due to trafficing, and the entire thing is subjective. Plus we've had 40,000 of these threads in the past mate, use the search bar
#14
Oh yeah, don't forget:
Death, Cannible Corpse, Cradle of Filth, Dethklok, Amon Amarth, Rammstein, Godsmack...
You've got some research to do, kid.

Ironic? The bands I listed aren't metal?
I'm not sure what you mean. They sound pretty hardcore to me.
Seriously, I don't understand.

Amon Amarth are NOT fucking viking metal.

Having lyrical themes about vikings does not make you automatically viking metal. Gotta have the magic of Quorthon in there as well.

But yeah AA aren't really close to Viking Metal (do some research), they're just melo death.

They're a viking-themed melodic death metal band, not a viking metal band, it's different. We don't call black metal bands black metal bands because they sing about being black. TS, you have no idea what the hell you're talking about. Most of those aren't even metal and that list shafts all forms of metal except thrash and classic heavy metal. This thread is rediculous, music is subjective anyway. No matter how much more I like Death than the Jonas Brothers, Death will never be "better". Go be a dumbass somewhere else.

Thread reeks of so much failure. SO MUCH FAILURE.
Pretty much any post except for the regs has been made of fail cheese on fail bread with a side of fail ale.
