The other day I heard a song on the radio I don't think I had heard before. I think it was probably Godsmack, and called "Shine" or "Shine on" or something.

Harmonica in it? It was an effing badass song! Sound familiar?

My current favorite band would have to be Disturbed.

New album coming out in June, and they are going on tour this summer with Slipknot, plus many others!

Are you really a mile high?

Dude, what planet are you on?

Well, I like several bands, but there is one that really stands out for me...

And it's not just their songs & lyrics, it's also the fact that I truly believe them to have the greatest lead vocal I've ever heard in a rock band anywhere.

Who is it?

Layne Staley

of the GREAT

Alice in Chains.

By mile high, I meant as a location.... like city.

I haven't heard of an of those bands, but I am a bit out of the loop for the most part with metal.

Ahhh Black Metal, basically Black Metal is the worlds biggest joke.
It's more or less a bunch of skinny pale kids who think they are evil, sinister and scary but totally miss the mark.

Black Metal kids are funny.

As for good metal personally I'm partial to some Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, The Berzerker, Children of Bodom and Gwar.

Or if im in a Metalcore mood Bring me the Horizon, Job for a Cowboy and Despised Icon

It might be now.
Not when Venom were strutting their stuff in the 80's.

At the OP, check out this thread you might find some bands you've never heard of before.
This Threads All Metal All The Time

Some of my faves since i started listening to Metal back in the late 70's early 80's.

Black Sabbath, of course.
Judas Priest.
Manila Road.

Ahh yes. I do very much like metal. Death metal and black metal are my favorite types though. Here are some awesome bands.

Amon Amarth
Bal-Sagoth ( fantasy freaks, sci-fi dorks, and D&D nerds should check these guys out due to their like-minded lyrical content )
Crimson Moonlight
Dimmu Borgir
Dark Tranquillity

That is just to name a few. If you don't like the death metal vocal style then you can always check out some of the more traditional metal such as:

Dragonforce ( these guys are friggin amazing!!! )
Iced Earth
Sonata Arctica
Lacuna Coil

And of course it would be silly of me to not mention one of the greatest metal bands ever to exist...Iron Maiden.

Well there you have it. Enjoy!!!

I'd have to say White/Rob Zombie in my opinion is one of the great metal bands. All of his songs have bada## guitar riffs in them. Some of Megadeath's songs are pretty good. Black Sabbath (anyone who can play a guitar strung with banjo stings with homemade prostetic fingers and make it sound awesome dserves to be up there with Hendricks in guitars greatest players). Maylin Manson's remake of Personal Jesus is pretty good. I also like his song mObscene, it's got a pretty killer guitar riff in it.
