If The Avengers Were Metal...

Saw it twice in two days. It was that good.
1Wolves in the Throne Room
Two Hunters

Captain America --
Wolves may look scary, but their heart is in the right place. Though not ones to outsmart you, they've got plenty of muscle despite being pacifists.

Iron Man --
These guys are all about the brains. Tomas Hakke is their arc reactor, powering a very technical approach that kicks all sorts of ass while staying a step ahead of you.
The Destroyers of All

The Hulk --
One minute Jamie Saint Merat is laying down calm, beautiful percussion textures, and suddenly BAM! you're being bludgeoned by a brutal assault of death metal and flailing dissonance. Ulcerate's genius lies in their intricate complexity, but few match their brute force when they let loose.
4Amon Amarth
Twilight of the Thunder God

Thor -- ...duh.
5Arch Enemy
Wages of Sin

Black Widow --
Angela Gossow is easy on the eyes until she starts breaking your face with death growls. Actually, that''s still pretty hot.
6Giant Squid

Hawkeye --
There's nothing superhuman about Giant Squid, but they always seem to hit the spot.
Ba-dum, cha.

Nick Fury --
They're definitely up to something, and it's definitely over your head. Aaron Turner runs the show in post-metal, and whether his plans work perfectly or not, they're always badass and worth keeping an eye on.
8Avenged Sevenfold
Avenged Sevenfold

Loki --
Man, they have a knack for pissing people off, but there are still moments where you have to admire their gall. They've tried everything in the book, and somehow it just never seems to work out.
