This list goes to eleven. It’s one better, isn’t it?

Image

- NoMeansNo
- SNFU
- Fugazi
- Killing Joke
- Metallica
- Slayer
- Rammstein
- Meshuggah
- Tool
- Nine Inch Nails
- Skinny Puppy

Not necessarily bands I still listen to regularly, but ones that inspired me the most, whether for their records, innovations, commitment to their art or beliefs, or legendary live performances.

Judas Priest
Dio/Rainbow
Rhapsody of Fire
Symphony X
Kamelot
Mastodon
Meshuggah
Katatonia
Porcupine Tree (if you consider them metal and not rock)
Sunn O)))
Tool
Opeth
Danzig
Angra
Rage Against The Machine
Helloween
System of a Down
As I Lay Dying

Dethklok

I wanted to trim it down to 10 but I failed

Dare I say, a fellow Sunn worshipper?

I used to be a HUGE fan of Katatonia. Their last couple of albums really fell short for me though, sadly. "Fall of Hearts" was incredible. I don't know what happened with the last two :(
