Death metal:
Death
Nile
Morbid Angel
In Flames (back in the day)
Gojira
Necrophagist

Thrash/Groove:
Testament
Machine Head (with traces of Metalcore)
Fear Factory (though you could call them Industrial)
Overkill
System of a Down (maybe you'd call them alternative)

Power metal:
Angra (best power metal band out there afaik)
Helloween
Blind Guardian

Folk metal:
Agalloch
Skyclad

Black metal:
Immortal
Emperor

one may or may not agree with the classification

**** right! Amon Amarth is clearly Melodeath, Alestorm aren't even folkier than some bands you listed as Power metal, Arch Enemy is Melodeath but they've got much more Thrash than pure Death metal. Nightwish fits Symphonic far better than Power metal, too.

Nice! Two lists of Metal bands are already posted by some devoted Metalheads! =D

But... I might need to clarify a bit here... I will be trying to mix the popular bands with the new/less popular/unknown ones a bit as I will alwyas be trying to attract as much voters as possible. And that has prooven itself pretty difficult at times... ;)

Please excuse me if some of these bands were in this competition, as i did join later on this year.

I actually don't have to many suggestions.

Melodeath: Amon Amarth, Children of Bodom
Metalcore: Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying
Death Metal: Behemoth
Deathcore ( I actually hate the genre save this one band) Suicide Silence

I wonder who would vote for Amaranthe... Dance-metal.
Also Draconian(Doom metal) isn't well known. Could be interesting.
And just stop putting Iron maiden and stuff in the same list as all the unknown bands, no wonder they win. In my opinion it makes 'the battle' a bit boring. Everyone knows those bands have a lot of fans.

Don't diss what others think is entertainment. I think most death metal is pure screaming if you don't pay attention to the riffs, but I'm not going to puke all over it in public.

Well that's because it's a stupid opinion. Rapping is just some dude talking if you don't pay attention to the beats.

I'll talk crap about entertainment if I think it's bad. Art may have some subjective qualities to it, but if you tell me Design the Skyline is a better band than Death, you're flat out wrong.

Asking Alexandria too for Metalcore.

Jesus Christ do you keep getting worse.

All art is subjective as you mentioned. I can like one band over the other, and so can you.

Again, to each his own. Similarly to you saying rap is just ''talking'', death metal is ''screaming'' to others. So, hush and don't pour scorn over others' taste.
