The Heavy Metal thread

Since there's a significant interest in metal in this forum, let us share good metal music. What are your favourite bands? My favourite bands are Opeth, Symphony X and Death. After hearing their music I can't help but feel that all the other music out there are weak in comparison. Opeth is simply the most consistently good band ever; you can see how highly rated they are in Rateyourmusic and AMG. Symphony X has the best vocalist, best guitarist, best keyboard player, best bassist and best drummer ever, and The Odyssey is the best song ever. Death has the best guitar riffs ever, although they are a bit on the too progressive side so I guess many people will not like them. I recommend anyone with interest in Heavy Metal to check out these bands.

I'm quite new to the whole genre but I'm enjoying it ever since I was introduced to it. Been listening to metalcore a lot more than metal though...

To me, Metal is not all about sounding heavy. If I want that, I can listen to early Napalm Death and grindcore metal. I prefer good song writing and good melodies and I think Iron Maiden is 1 of the best in the business.

Some bands that I listen:
Iron Maiden
Sepultura
Cathedral
Megadeth
Metallica
Trivium
Mastodon
Helloween
Kreator
Napalm Death
Queensryche
Manowar

And some
Slayer
Death
Morbid Angel
Sucidal Tendercies

Want to try Arch Enemy next and maybe COB

Uh, you guys realize that "metal" is a short-form of "heavy metal", do you?

I'm surprised no one's mentioned Pantera or Lamb of God yet

Anthrax was awesome, and I really liked their collaboration with Public Enemy...

Also very impressed with Otep... Her growling vocals make Corey Taylor sound like a little girl... Check out their video for Warhead on youtube...

Don't know if Motorhead counts as metal, but I like them too...

Dethklok is my guilty pleasure... I really like Thunderhorse, Go into the Water and the Murmaider

I listen to these bands regularly:
Metallica
Megadeth
Iron Maiden
Cacophony (Marty Friedman's old band!)
Symphony X
Children of Bodom
Every Time I Die (not sure if they're really considered metal)
some Sonata Arctica
Dream Theater
Judas Priest
Suicidal Tendencies
Mastodon (actually, I only like Iron Tusk from Leviathan)
Trivium
Slayer


Also, if you guys are tired of all those annoying poseur-ish rock bands pretending to be hardcore/'metal', you might enjoy this video... Featuring Brian Posehn and Scott Ian of Anthrax... There's even a little tribute to Megadeth's Peace Sells music video

wrong. metal is an all encompassing genre, heavy metal being a sub genre.
