The 15 Metal Bands, Young And Old, You Should Be Listening To In 2015

-By Doc Coyle (@doccoyle)

Being charged with spotlighting 15 bands that I think matter in 2015 is daunting. I’m not Bill O’Reilly. I’m not trying to pawn off propagandized opinion as fact. In my best impression of an authoritative figure, this is a collection of musical acts, young and old, that I predict will make an impact this year. Periodically, I have these exploratory talks with my friends within the music industry (A&R people, agents, promoters, musicians, managers, DJ’s), and part of the goal is to try and figure out where heavy music is going. What is the next “big thing”? No one knows. I don’t know either, but I wanted to shine a light on those bands that are making artistic strides in a time when homogenization is rampant, and discovering beacons of hope through the digital white noise is becoming increasingly difficult.

Watch an interview with Bring Me The Horizon and find out why they’re one of the band’s you should be listening to this year in the following pages.
