Classes, ordered by how metal they are.

The only correlation between Druids, Shamans, Hunters and metal is the fact that all of these classes are reminiscent of folk metal. Otherwise, they have no connection to metal. Druids are highest on the list because i like to imagine that they would one day make an "evil tree" glyph for resto druids that would make it so that they could be one of those gnarly badass trees from sleepy hollow that were scary and !@#$, which is actually kind of metal.


Your list is pretty great, except where you placed shaman. C'mon, shaman is the core of the Horde and the Horde is metal. Using the very elements to blow crap up is pretty dang metal in my book. Also, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3qwcxLIzvM It's not just a song about the Horde, it's a song about Horde shaman.

I say all this as a warlock and metal.

So there.

I could say that all country is whiny rednecks? But I know this not to be true. I am a huge fan of quite a few country singers.

Thank you OP, I am glad to see that you put some serious thought into this.

Apocalyptica is pretty much the closest thing you can get to metal without using an electric guitar.


I knoooow it's lovely. I'm really jealous that a friend of mine from Canada got to see them play with Rammstein. Those two are beautiful together.

I would enjoy this.

There is nothing more exhilarating than draining the life force from some hapless victim.....except for maybe draining their bank account.

I think that this is why goblins can be warlocks.

My armor is metal. Doesn't that count for something?
90 Blood Elf Hunter

I'd have put Deathknights first myself, but the list is pretty solid IMO. Maybe hunters above Shammies too.


I agree Hunters are more metal than those pseudo tree huggers..they commune with the elements ffs all meditation and yoga ughhh. While we go out and bare handed wrestle vicious beasts to tame and to do our bidding

What the heck do you mean by "metal"?
The music genre or the element?


If you have to ask, you're not.

A little bit, but it would help if you could confirm that your pet was a rabid beast and that you actually prefer, when shooting your enemies with your bow, to take non-lethal shots that maximize pain before death. That would be pretty metal.

Happy to share ^_^ Different concert but it was the first clip I found in the search bar.

Also I like to think Shamans can be a little more metal. Their bloodlust and ability to control lava seems pretty cool. I always picture them combining earth and fire spells to make volcanos.

This is probably the only metal band I listen to regularly. Now, nobody can call me a hipster.

My German friend is always trying to make me listen to Slayer, Anthrax, Iron Maiden, and other things. Sorry folks, just can't get into it.

To expand-- Faun is barelllly sliding into the metal genre with a HEAVY folk influence, but it's very gorgeous and the lyrics are excellent. Alcest seems to be a frenchie pseudo Tool, with some heavier influence but again, dark and impressionable lyrics. Junius is increasingly more metal, with a lot stronger guitar action and progressive rythym. Mucc hails from Japan and has a lot of variation in tempo, guitar and vocals. One song can have an upbeat tempo, the next feels jazz like and others like Shion (the one posted) are much darker.

Hope you enjoy your banging on pans while screaming music <3

These were the best examples of more melodic and uh, begineer friendly, metal. I like a variety of music stuffs, but these take the cake on "something I would reccomend to anyone"

in my opinion, folk is an integral and incredibly necessary part of metal.

Undead are the most metal race, yes, but I'll save the "races, ordered by how metal they are" thread for another time.
