Hm, I've never thought about my 10 fave but I'll try. The first two are in order, the rest... not so much, and I've probably forgot some bands that I prefer over the ones I listed:

- Slipknot
- maudlin of the Well
- Mastodon
- Emperor
- Textures
- Mayhem
- Cult of Luna
- Carcass
- Katatonia
- Axis of Perdition



Honourable mention:
DEP
Between the Buried and Me
The first few albums by Marilyn Manson are awesome, as well. Don't really know if I'd classify him as metal so much, but
he's close enough for me.

And somebody else put Agoraphobic Nosebleed on there so I'm going to throw them in there, along with The Locust.
So there. I'm also gonna cheat and put Boris (because some of it is drone or sludge metal) and Amen (because they're a hybrid of
punk and metal).

how can you like boris and maudlin of the well and like slipknot at the same time? Doesn't listening to bands with actual talent push you away from accessible garbage like slipknot?

lol I love it.

The simple answer is that Slipknot are great, and always have been.

I get the feeling people are going to expect me to defend them a lot here.

I'm not asking you to defend them I'm just curious as to how you can't see through a gimmick that is a slap in the face to real musicians such as the examples I used.

You attack them and say that I'm incapable of seeing through a "gimmick" and you don't expect me to defend them or even me? Er.

Again, the simple answer is that they aren't a gimmick or a slap in the face. Our conversation will probably just continue to go this way, just so you know.

That's the point of a forum. To discuss the points posted. Otherwise, why post?

They are a gimmick. Their sound was created by a label. They write boring and generic songs that are marketed to stupid depressed teenagers. Their lyrics are just really stupid and angsty. They are part of a genre that is mass marketed. Bands like that ARE a slap in the face to real musicians. Music is not something you mass market. It's art. Bands like slipknot are perpetuating the american tradition of exploiting everything possible. How can you not see past that? Especially in comparison with bands like DEP or Boris?
