Happy Metal Day! \m/ In honor of today, I want to do a more personal blog on my favorite metal bands. Newer, more modern metal wouldn't be here if it weren't for past bands and musicians, but the metal of today also deserves to be recognized. After all, some of today's better metal bands could go down in history just like the old school ones have, and create a continuous cycle of metal that gets handed down to each generation. Here are my top five metal bands. Rock out!
