I can't think of many alternative metal bands (at least good ones for that matter), but out of the ones provided, definitely Tool! Lateralus is a mesmerizing masterpiece from front to back, I never get bored of it for a second.

ALICE IN CHAINS is not alternative



Alice In Chains IS alternative metal. They play grunge which is alternative metal, so besides bad english you also have bad metal knowledge

If so, Isis.

Tool plays totally different music to the other bands in the list as well, so does Faith No More, so your current point is totally mute.
You said AIC don't play alternative metal and said the guy that posted it had therefore bad knowledge of metal when clearly AIC DO play alternative metal, so, it is clear your knowledge of metal is bad

Choosing between the top 3 bands is hell - AIC were one of the key bands getting me into music, and probably my favourite band from those early days; FNM gradually became a favourite during 2011 as I fell more and more in love with Angel Dust; and Lateralus has got me strongly into Tool. I guess it'd probably come down to AIC and FNM, and maybe just about AIC, but all 3 are bands I have a lot of time for.

Indeed. In fact ALL those bands play totally separate forms of alternative metal

Somehow I misread System Of A Down as Korn (don't ask me why though, one consists of three words and the other of four letters) and early Deftones and Korn could be compared more or less.


But indeed none of those bands mentioned have anything in common except for them being alternative metal.

Stop cheating the system, bitch.

Although industrial metal is considered alternative metal so you could chuck Godflesh and whathaveyou on this list.

Isn't the idea of alternative that all of the bands' music is distinguishable from one another? So saying that having seperated forms is a bit redundant?

I don't quite get what you mean, but alternative metal is an umbrella term that incorporates other genres, like some grunge, industrial, nu-metal etc. not necessarily just bands that have a unique style.

You were arguing over whether AIC were alternative or not. You then said that they have different styles and I added in that alternative metal is about having unique styles in the first place. But I think you've given a much clearer idea as to what alternative metal is. I'm used to thinking it's just groups that are trying to be ''unique'' and forgot about all the genre influences.

it's been lumped in the alt-metal category simply because it does not line up with the more traditional metal styles.
