    Well, that’s a pretty loaded question. Do you have any interests within the genre?
    Here are my favorites within the various subgenres of metal:
    Symphonic: Kamelot, Nightwish, Rhapsody of Fire
    Progressive: Symphony X (also interested in Dream Theater)
    Power: Dream Evil (AII Iced Earth)
    Gothic: Lacuna Coil (also interested in (AII) Sirenia and Tristania)
    Folk: Alestorm, Battlelore (AII Korpiklaani)
    Death: Amon Amarth (AII Death)
    Hair: Ratt (AII Dokken)
    Heavy: none (AII Manowar, old Metallica)
    Thrash: none (AII Sepultura, Kreator)
    Core: All That Remains (kind of melodic death), Shadows Fall
    …and of rock:
    Hard: Disturbed, Godsmack
    Alternative: Live (pronounced as such: “live music”)
    Progressive: Tool
    D != E
    PS: Heck if that first answer isn’t ridiculously long! Lists are good, but that was sheer OVERKILL!
    Hmm. Overkill. They’re an old-school thrash metal band, though I don’t know much of their work…

    Wow, I can’t think of a better list of bands that I hate. Wow. How is that metal? Idiots. Jonas Brothers? The Academy Is? Metal? WTF?!
    Disturbed
    Flee the Seen
    All that Remains
    Handshakes and Highfives (a bit light for me, give them a chance)
    Older AFI (The Art of Drowning and before)
    Shattersphere
    Avenged Sevenfold
    UnderOath
    Kill Hannah (VERY light metal)
    HIM
    Apocalyptica
    Rammestein
    My Chemical Romance?
    As I Lay Dying
    Rise Against
    Killswitch Engage
    Nightwish
    Linkin Park?
    Wow. I can’t even believe that first person. Shameful.

    try underoath :) ))

  10. mariøath says:

    I like the first answer just add Metallica
    answer 3 is false

  11. Johnny F says:

    The Jonas Brothers

  12. Tyler says:

    holy shit… most of these bands are not even close to metal. if you like metalcore, as i lay dying or all that remains, or killswitch engage. Disturbed is too mainstream to be metal anymore. Try Scar Symmetry. Swedish melo-death band. They kick ass. Some of these bands are okay, but most aren’t metal. AFI? Bullet for my Valentine?
