Well every decade has a few metal bands they are known for, like Black Sabbath for the 70s, Slayer and Megadeth for the 80s, Cannibal Corpse for the 90s, but what metal band will the 00s be known for?

(Don't take the metal bands I listed to heart, there are others those where the ones I just could think of off the top of my head)

Eh, I don't think you can really compress it that much anymore
The 70's you could because no one was playing that style.
The 80's you kinda could cause it was when Thrash become HUGE
But with the 90's and the 00's there's just too many HUGE genre defining sounds.
Like, Nile and Behemoth both got the whole brutal, ithyphallic death metal sound going
Necrophagist, Psycroptic and Spawn of Possession are all pushing metal to its most technical points
Opeth, Borknagar, Ne Obliviscaris and Agalloch are all pushing the folk/metal hybrid further

And all that's just an example off the top of my head aswel

I really don't think you can sum up the 90's and the 00's in a few bands really.

You can do each band representing each genre but otherwise, like Magero mentioned it's impossible. Btw, Maiden > Megadeth for 80's imo.

If I absolutely had to pick a band, probably Dream Theater, they're just all around awesome.

Pantera defined the 90s man

Metal has evolved so much though, you can't really name a certain band to a certain era when there is so much competition and so much difference in the genre these days

Judas Priest aren't metal then no?


The 70's are classed as the start of heavy metal.

^Metallica = 80s, not 70s.

There's too many bands that are releasing good stuff. We won't know which ones have staying power for quite a while, methinks.

Technically they formed in the late 70's though, even if they came big in the 80's

We can't tell yet because we haven't seen which bands will last. But we'll all remember DragonForce, whether or not they become real big.

There's probably going to be bands who are discovered in the 10's and 20's but have released material in the 00's and will later be credited with the defining of the 00's.

For that, I'd say Opeth.

If a band is going to define the 70's how can they when the really didn't release any albums then/get known?

Erm, not started in the 00's but Elvenking is pretty much an amazing newer folk/power band.

Arsis will definitely be known as an awesome band of the 00's. James Malone = epic songwriting god.

Bands like In Flames and Arch Enemy are pretty popular right now, at least from what I know. Our time is likely to be known for them.

I think Dragonforce and Dethklok. Dethklok for releasing the most successful DM album of the modern day, and Dragonforce for the massive popularity surrounding 'Through the Fire and Flames.'

I thought it was ok,I enjoyed it. Not as much as Winter Wake. I can see where the negative feefback came from. I didn't really feel the "folk" aspect of it like you would in the other albums. All the songs seem to kind of have a similar sound, which is never good, just look at Dragonforce. Also, the guttural growls was a bit different. Overall, I liked it, just not as much as previous albums.
#34
I don't know why people would say bands like Dream Theater and Machine Head, when they've been around for well over the last 7/8 years.

Machine Head got big in the 90's

Dream Theater has been around since the 80's
#35
Damnagoras did growling on the other albums

But, I guess not as much, so okay, and I found wyrd to be the most 'folky' in sound,Winter Wake to be power-est and Heathenreel was a mix of the two. And, the dom was strictly power.

Dream Theater HAS been around since the 80's, but some of their recent stuff is really good. Although, I really shouldn't have mentioned them for this decade :P.

Edit: Slay, did you feel like they were trying for a more mainstream approach? Much more Romantic lyricism that just made it worse for me. I'm hoping they move away from that in the future.

1. What I was refering to was the fact that when the 70's hit, only 1 band was really playing metal. Black Sabbath. Then Priest came along in the late 70's.

2. Maiden released their first album in 1980. I wish people would stop calling them a 70's metal band.

3. Metallica formed in 1981. Not in the 70's. James was like 16 in '79.

I thought it was much more mainstream, yes, but in that same sense Opeth's 'Damnation' is technically considered a much more 'mainstream' approach, but I still love it. In the end, if they keep going with this style, I'd still listen to em.

It really isn't that much of a bad thing, you can't really blame them. Folk Metal doesn't really pay the bills aswell as more mainstream oriented metal. They still are a great band, I still regularly listen to their Winter Wake album, and sometimes Wyrd for that 'folky' feel.
