Ok i want everyone to share their favorite bands as well share your knowledge about some pretty unknown artists.
Personally my favorite band is Guns N' Roses and some good unknown bands such as


Sixx: A.M.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYlS_kmxES0

Sixx: A.M. has only three members and they are as following
Nikki Sixx: Bassist for Motley Crue and Sixx: A.M.
DJ Ashba: Lead Guitarist for Guns N' Roses and Sixx: A.M.
James Michaels: Lead singer, rhythm guitarist and drummer for Sixx: A.M. (i know almost nothing about his past works), although he only sings when they play live

Maximum the Hormone http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0epwjWF3Wwo

I don't know much about Maximum besides the facts that they are a pretty popular Heavy Metal band in Japan and that they also wrote the intro and ending song for the second series of Death Note.
If you know something about them you can tell me in the comments

Thats not hard rock or heavy metal... even though it feels like a hard rock or heavy metal falls on your head every second.

If you still dont understand what he searches for:

Ooh, the 'i bite your comment' sarcasm...

Taste in mental shifts constantly, could be anything from My Dying Bride, Gorgoroth and In Flames to Decapitated, Pantera and Cannibal Corpse. I don't generally do do Deathcore, Metalcore or Mathcore.

I do those and not much else. Occasional tech death or prog but that's it. Think I listen to metal for different reasons than most people.

To be honest I generally don't do much metal anymore, currently going through a classical and acoustic phase. While I can appreciate the technical difficulty of some of the bands out there I just don't bond with a lot of the lyrics.

I would probably say AC/DC is so far my only favorite heavy metal band.

Im very suprised to see that noone at all makes mention of Tool.
By far one of my favorite bands of all time, for those that dont know them, one could say its Led Zeppelin that meets Metallica. This grammy winning rock band is deffinately worth checking out for anyone that enjoys in-depth tracks with mindblowing lyrics and instrumental brilliancy.

Vocals: Maynard James Keenan
Guitar: Adam Jones
Bass: Justin Chancellor
Drummer: Danny Carey

Other tracks of recommendation beyond buying all their albums:
No Quarter (led zeppelin cover, that owns the original)
Vicarious
Stinkfist
Eulogy
Push It
Sober
The Pot
Parabol + Parabola

Enjoy

I listen to pretty much anything from reggae to classical, mostly Black/Death Metal though and their subgenres.
Metalcore is one of those things I really can't stand, only exception being Killswitch Engage.
I also hate Avenged Sevenfold, it makes me sick.

Favourite bands are:

Dissection
Immortal
Primordial


Lately been listening lot of:

Bathory - They pretty much started the whole "viking metal" and the early stuff defined much of the black metal sound.
Devin Townsend - He is just amazingly good. I seriously can't get enough of Ziltoid the Omniscient.



CHECK IT OUT YO

Atm I'm only really listening to bands that play in Drop A or lower. So groovy. Architects(Hollow Crown) have been on the rotation frequently, as well as Meshuggah on my ipod. I would kill to see this live(starts at 0:50):





Most important metal band last decade imo

You may want me skinned alive but I'd take Gojira over Meshuggah any day! :mrgreen:
