Five bands you should give a chance

Hey there! Are you getting sick of bands like Slipknot, As I Lay Dying and System of A Down polluting your ears? If you are, I have five bands you should strongly consider listening to. I’m not necessarily saying you should drop the three bands I just listed (although you really should). I just think it’s always good to continue expanding your musical tastes in metal.

I’m doing this rant because these five bands rock and I feel more people should be listening to them (and others in the genre), so make the jump for these five bands!
