The Most Popular Metal Artists of 2011
In 2011, many artists that were not well known in previous years have shown themselves to be better than originally thought. Bands like Bullet For My Valentine, Bring Me The Horizon, and Avenged Sevenfold (although Avenged Sevenfold is not really considered a metal band) have taken a dive to the tops of the music charts.
Metal bands often take a dive down, so it’s unfamiliar to music enthusiasts to see them on top. The reason for this is because metal bands tend to make songs that “push the limits” and make people stop listening, while other people actually enjoy this.I found some more information here.
Avenged Sevenfold has not been considered a metal band by a majority of their listeners, while to some people they have. It all depends on what your definition of “metal” is.
Bullet For My Valentine has been around for a long time, although they just recently got picked up on the radar. They’re a british band that hides their accents very well in almost every song, and have left their mark on the music world.
Bring Me The Horizon just got picked up on the radar as well, but it was during 2008-2011 that they really became famous. The lead singer, Oliver Sykes (or Oli for short) has his own clothing brand, which goes by the name of dropdead.
Many metal artists are going to be picking up the top of the music charts because metal is slowly wrapping its arms around the nation, and soon the whole world. Our society is slowly accepting just about everything, which gives metal artists who have true talent the chance to get on top, like every artist should have the chance to do.
Other types of artists, like christian, country, and mainstream rock, have a hard time getting publicized, where metal will not have this problem in the time to come.
