Today's 10 Most Promising Young Metal Bands


7. Cognizance
Ready for some heavy as fuck, angry, tech-death? Great. Here's Cognizance: jailing from Leeds, they clearly missed the American memo that everyone needs to play soft, progressive music now. Cognizance describes themselves as "balls to the wall death metal"; while some of it is technical, it's mostly what you get.


6. Periphery
All things considered, Periphery probably isn't new to you. They made their debut a while ago, pioneered in the "djent" sub-genre of metal, and latched onto high-profile tours with Dream Theater and the Summer Slaughter.

That being said, Periphery is one of the fastest-rising metal bands in the genre today, pushing their way to the top with a winning formula that almost guarantees they'll be experiencing some mainstream success soon. If any metal band could become as big as your Lamb of Gods or Mastodons of yesteryear, look to Periphery to pull it off.


5. Perceptionist
Since Between the Buried and Me went completely up their own ass making circus music (search your feelings -- you know it to be true), there hasn't been a great progressive metal band quite like them. Enter Perceptionist, whose style obviously owes a lot to older Between the Buried and Me but dutifully carries the torch into the future.


List continues on the next page.

How is CHON not on this list at all?? . I'm going to assume the person who made this article never heard of them before, because if they did CHON would of been in the top 5, if not, number 1. Here's one of their songs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cWa6C0OBqs
