Anybody knows any good metal rock bands. You see, ever since I heard Kamelot's "When the Lights are Down" and "Ghost Opera", I just got hooked on it. So Im asking for ya'll to list good metal. Just none of that Devil worship killing shit. Stuff like Kamelot 'light?

Ask Rambo, I think he likes metal. He wears a shirt with a jewish band on it all the time.

PS, a good friend of mine's brother in law is the lead singer of number 12. (Justin Pedric) She is marrying his older brother in September.

Try Iron Maiden. Great band, and you gotta keep the classics. If you like the lighter stuff, go for Dragon Force. Herman Li has got to be the most insane guitarist out there. If your taste in music suddenly changes (happens to me all the time) and you want something heavier, go for Slipknot. Great shit.

By the way- Do you want me to pick up the 2k turret at hershfest?

But Shorty- Go to purevolume.com, go to the bottom of the page where the random button is, switch the genre to metal and keep doing it until you find a band you like.

I'm not going to get into an argument about music. I'm not speaking derogatorily about any bands, just naming facts.

Norma Jean, Fear before the March Of Flames, The number 12 looks like you - All Metalcore. It's not a bad thing as I said(hell, I like them all), just pointing it out.

Heavy Heavy Low Low - Mathcore - A more technical(that being, musical talent/complication) genre than Metalcore.

Comeback Kid - Hardcore - Again, not bad, but not really metal.

Slipknot - While I don't know their music particularly well, they are not really metal at all. Most true metalheads deem them 'mallcore' or even 'rapcore.' Again, I'm not going to argue with people over music in a thread, if you feel I am wrong, feel free to PM me.

Not familiar with "vanna, mychildren mybride, and others..."


The 'jewish band' that OMC alluded to is Meshuggah a post-Thrash/Death Metal band. While their name is derived from Jewish languages, they really are not Jewish, they just liked the meaning of the word; 'crazy.' If you want to listen to them, I'd recommend Chaosphere - it's one of my favorite albums of theirs.


Iron Maiden is a great band, and is a true pioneer of the genre. As far as DragonForce being 'lighter' I guess I can see what you mean. Some of their lyrics are a bit softer, but they're really pretty standard as far as Power Metal goes.


Another tool I liked when I was listening to more mainstream metal, similar to keef's suggestion is Pandora. I believe there's been talks about it before on NH, but I could be wrong. It's great, until you get into lesser known bands. A lot of the stuff I type in returns few or no results(often times the results being primarily the band I searched for <_<).


As far as suggestions go for similar stuff to Kamelot goes, I can't offer too much. They are, as far as I know, considered Melodic Power Metal. Similar to DragonForce, technically, sure, but I'm not positive that you'd like them - haven't heard Kamelot in a long time. I recently heard some Biss and Black Masquerade that I'd call Melodic Power though. One of my favorite 'lighter' metal bands is Persefone. Their stuff is pretty hard to find, even on the 'nets, but they're pretty awesome. Looking back at what I've just written, I realize that my definition of 'light' might be slightly different than yours, but I'd still give them a try.


It's late, I haven't slept in about 2 days, and I may have just rambled on quite incomprehensibly. However, if you've made it this far and still want more recommendations, I'd need some more band names other than Kamelot.


Edit: To prove my point about Pandora, I just tried a search for a Melo-Death band I've found rather recently, "Be'lakor" and Pandora returned the following:
"We found several. Which "be'lakor" did you mean?
Plakor by Approximation
Bella Flor by La Familia Pena-Govea"

Those are nothing even remotely close, are they? :P


Edit 2: Also check out Evergrey. I like their older stuff, but it's all pretty good.

Black Sabbath
Dio (kick ass)
Judas Priest
Led Zeppelin
Motörhead
Mushroomhead
Ozzy Osbourne

Those are all decent metal bands, not overly heavy though. For some very heavy music (these probably don't all fit your requests, but I'm listing them just because they're metal) check out:

Agent Steel
Anthrax
Cannibal Corpse
Destruction
Exodus
Kreator
Lamb of God
Megadeth
Metallica
Pantera
Slayer
Testament
Venom

These are mostly older bands, all of them are pretty decent by some standard or another. A few aren't very well known compared to others. I doubt you'll like some of these, but again, they're all metal and they're all good.

I definitely don't know my metal as well as Rambo, or some of the other guys here, do. But, one of my favorite bands is 3 Inches of Blood. I don't know what metal sub category they fall into, but I think they're pretty amazing. Axes of Evil and Deadly Sinners are two great songs by them. Check them out.

Wrath, just for posting that you listen to Nightwish, you have earned my respect as knowing what good metal is. I saw them in concert almost three ago in NYC. Anyways, I was going to contribute to this topic as well, but all the bands I know of have been mentioned already. No point in being redundant.

You're talking about power metal, so why is it only now that Manowar is being mentioned? They've probably been playing it for longer than anybody else and still are one of the greatest power metal bands ever.

On that note, check out Swordmetal.com if you like that type of music.

Try Three Doors Down, start with the song Home and work your way from there.

Edit: Sorry I meant Three Days Grace.

I love Nightwish's old stuff. The new stuff with the guy singing bothers me. Same thing with Lacuna coil, The girls voice is beautiful and then this scraggly piece of shit starts singing and brings up the songs cheese factor.

Favorite song by Nightwish still has to be end of all hope.

Some singles of the metal I listen to.

Arch enemy - My Apocalypse.

God Forbid - AntiHero

As I lay dying- The darkest nights

As I lay dying - Forever.

Avenged Sevenfold - Unholy confessions

Between the buried and me - Alaska

Threat Signal - Rational eyes

Nightwish - Over the hills and far away.

Nightwish - Sleeping sun (This is more like English opera)

Norma Jean - Memphis will be laid to waste.

Dragonforce - Through the fire and the flames.

Darkest Hour - Sound the surrender.

Mudvayne - Death Blooms.

Mudvayne was the band that got me unto metal.
Thats all I can think of right now.

For all the Dragonforce fans, I hear that "through Fire and Flames" is going to be on guitar hero III. I've seen videos on youtube of it, looks insane!

I usually limit my metal to whatever's on Guitar Hero. Although I have a friend who's an obsessive Nightwish fan. She tried to get me to play the instrumental parts for one of the songs (yes, all of them) for a concert back in high school.

So far after all of your useful recommendations these are my favorites.

*Kamelot
Cellador
Nocturnal Rites
*Sonata Arctica
Stratovarius
Symphony X
Twilightning


*The best

With Nightwish...Idont know but it sounds more like an opera than metal. Well I dont know cause I test each band with one of their songs on YouTube as a preveiw.
