Forums → Popular Media → Good REALLY HEAVY metal bands.
I find that when I try listening to metal I can't find any to suit me. Any I find to be heavy enough have vocals that sound like dying animals (No offense screamo fans.) I would love Slipknot if it weren't for (Once again) The vocals. Ever listen to the fictional cartoon band Deathclock, It sounds fantastic but once more I hear the antics of Nathan Explosion. Screaming is also the reason I'm selective of Avenged Sevenfold Songs. Really it's gotten out of hand in my opinion. Have you ever heard screaming in a slow song? I have. Really though I'm just rambling at this point so let me get to the point. Can anyone suggest a fast paced heavy metal band with some more hard rock vocals?

I know Shinedown has some nice fast paced songs. Maybe you also need to check the Speed Metal genre a bit, like DragonForce for example? Speed Metal tends to have normal singing with fast paced music! =)
Going to use your thread to see if there's a basis among our community to maybe start the MBWC back up again, if that's allright with you @samiel?
Yay Thanks, also I love Dragonforce they are one of my favorites (Ironicaly my two favorite of their songs are Through the Fire and Flames and Inside the Winter Storm) I have listened to Shinedown and to be truthfull I kinda forgot about them. Also I had never even heard of speed metal and I'm also trying new types of music all the time. I mainly Started this because I was listening to Mech (The singer is nicknamed the Polish Ozz) and I was like "This is awsome"
Then I was Like "I could listen to something faster" Do you know how difficult it is to find songs that are harder and faster than Pilem Z Diablem Bruderzaft or Brudna Muzyka without screaming vocals, they are basicly the line (also you should totally go look those up now) but now I find out there is an entire other genre I can dive into. YES!
Sepulchura is really good, it has a mix of singing and screamo. You might like it.
System of a Down
Also obvious stuff like Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath.
No offense but your taste screams "I'm new to metal!" considering Deathklok is the only band you listed that is metal. It's also about the most entry-level modern death metal band ever. I'm not the most hardcore metal fan either, but c'mon.
Missed the part where you said you don't like screaming. Tool has a lot of angelic singing, System has Serj and Daron who really don't *scream* at all (lots of yelling though), Mastodon has some angry stuff but nothing super harsh, Dream Theater has Queen-esque singing, RATM is rap/metal, and a lot of pre-90's metal has little to no brutal screaming whatsoever. But you're never gonna get into really good ****ing hate-filled blood curdling metal if you can't get past the screaming. It's fundamental to the genre.
I agree that screaming is 'art' of the Metal genre @Salvidian, but it's not something you have to start liking... the majority of Metal bands are still without screaming if you crunch numbers.
How did your search for new bands come along @samiel? Did you expand your collection significantly yet? =)
Also... seems like the Metal community is dorment again... no basis for solid ground to have enough voters if the MBWC competition if you ask me... heh... =/
Considering how "super harsh screaming" metal bands have only been around for 20 years or so, then yes, the majority of metal bands don't have screaming.
Well... i donÂ´t want to participate here (sorry, but i will end up splitting hairs... which bands are Heavy Metal bands and which not.. ), only one thing:
is wrong --> Sepultura
@MrDayCee youÂ´ll never know if you donÂ´t take the risk...^^
Where is @Minotaur55 at yo
And Sal..although I like your list, this person put REALLY HEAVY (notice those caps! =o) so they want stuff that hit harder than the average abusive father. Hell, I'm even considering not having Gojira or Cynic for my list of bands due to their more melodic nature
Lamb of God
The Cumshots (Death Rock...so not technically metal)
Dir en Grey (experimental, so expect a lot of songs with more 80's metal influence)
Behold... The Arctopus
Gojira (Technial Death Metal, still has plenty of heavy hitting moments doe)
... ****ed, now i got it... well, mondays^^
Ok, then iÂ´ll throw my two cents also in the ring... (i will only add new ones)
Slayer (well... what can i say?^^)
Bolt Thrower (british dearth metal, my all-time number two... after Slayer!, influenced by a special theme "War", their last album "Those Once Loyal" is.. simply fantastic, also "...For Victory" and "WarMaster"... and the rest...)
Six Feet Under (you could call them the death metal groove machine)
Obituary (for some reasons they are sometimes called slow motion death metal)
Dismember (death metal, they always try to implement some real "heavy metal" in their songs... hard to describe, i would say "Masive Killing Capacity" is a good start)
Morgoth (germanys only good death metal band, at least all beyond their last album)
Nocturnus (first death-metal band which used keyboard as an equal instrument, not only as stylistic device)
Kreator (thrash metal from germany)
Entombed (yes, yes, i know... but listen to their first album "Left Hand Path"... death metal at its best!)
Paradise Lost (same as Entombed, their first album is fantastic)
Given up on most metal nowadays.
>Criticizes Salvidian for listing some bands that weren't really heavy
Anyhow, I could split more hairs but then I'd be Unleashed. :P
Here are some bands that I listen to. They're quite heavy bruh.
Lamb Of God
Today is the Day (they're... kind of metal)
Xasthur (more ambient than metal, really)
Dir En Gray
Every Time I Die
Origin (not really into them)
Where is @Minotaur55 at yo
HERE. I'M HERE.
I've tried alot of the ones listed but I think I'll just crawl back into my musical niche. And also let me just say that I don't much bother with sub genres, heavy metal is about as specific as I get since after that it stops making sense to me. I'll stick to Dragon Force for a little while.
