Thy Cataflaque - avant-garde metal (roots in black metal) from Hungary
Haken - prog rock/metal (similar to Dream Theater)
Agalloch - folk/black metal sounding accessible and good ;)
Bloodbath - Death metal 'supergroup' (for me earlier albums are the best)
Death - original death metal (still very good)
Enslaved - they are to black metal what Opeth was to death metal (worth a try)
Katatonia - early death/doom, later heavy metal/rock (more classic) and some prog
Leprous - very good prog metal/death
Ne Obliviscaris - prog extreme metal (black and death) with violinist from Australia ;)
Riverside - polish prog/atomspheric rock/metal
Xantohochroid - epic/melodic black metal about fantasy word that they created
Edge of Sanity - Crimson I and Crimson II are sooo good :D
listening to rock in 2019....
No explanation needed
nevermore, cacophony, emperor, enslaved ,dissection,sepultura,death,cynic,x-japan, windir, drudkh
I'd put Meshuggah a bit higher, at least top 4 imo. The rest is pretty good. Slipknot should be on there as well though.
only disturbed people listen to metal
avoiding bands already mentioned
rivers of nihil
cult of luna
dillinger espace plan
Between the Burried and Me
Depends on what you mean by god tier.
Check out Highly Suspect - Lydia/Bath Salts or Serotonia
and tell me what do you think
Plebs, Deathspell Omega, nothing else
Black sabbath yes, yes melodic and powerful. Never gets older
Cattle Decapitation and Aborted!
Black Sabbath - my all time greatest, has a great influence in my life.
Pink Floyd - hands down the best rock band, they are the scientists of rock who experimented on all genres, and never forget their breathtaking guitar solo that isn't powering, -more like it talks to you.
Dio- one of the best live performer in rock/metal , the best lyricist to ever lived.
Iron Maiden - budget Dio but with better guitars.
Led Zeppelin - overrated af, have less than 10 good songs.
Oasis- idk how to decribe them, more like a casual band that you can sing along but really good.
Grateful Dead- good songs for driving <3
One Direction - AnimeMyLife^v^
Dont see Muse :( theyre my favourite, also the doors could be on that list
