Enslaved 💀
.
Enslaved is a Norwegian extreme metal band formed by Ivar Bjørnson and Grutle Kjellson in Haugesund in June 1991. They are currently based in Bergen, Norway.
To date, they have released fourteen full-length studio albums; the most recent of which, "E", was released in October 2017.
The band's music draws heavily on the Viking cultural and religious heritage of their home country of Norway for inspiration, and most of the band's lyrics relate to Norse mythology. Though they began as a traditional black metal band their sound has undergone significant changes over time resulting in a more progressive sound.
The band's early music was rooted in traditional black metal and Viking metal, however the band moved away from this sound with 2001's 'Monumension' and 2003's 'Below the Lights'. It was at this point that the band was reduced to its two founding members, Bjørnson and Kjellson. They began to incorporate elements of progressive rock, jazz, and other distinct influences into their sound, and over time have continued this progression.

Soulfly 💀
.
Soulfly is an American metal band formed in Phoenix, Arizona in 1997. The original lyrical content revolved around spirituality, political and religious themes, with later albums encompassing other themes including war, violence, aggression, slavery, hatred and anger. Soulfly is led by former Sepultura frontman Max Cavalera, who formed the band after he left the Brazilian group in 1996. To date the band has released ten studio albums.
Soulfly have been described as nu metal, thrash metal, groove metal and death metal. Soulfly originally played nu metal but then moved away from the nu metal genre after the early 2000s. Soulfly often incorporate elements of world music such as Brezillian tribal music and Middle Eastern music into their music.
Upon his exit from Sepultura in late 1996, singer/guitarist/songwriter Max Cavalera almost automatically set out to form his next musical endeavor, the ultra-heavy Soulfly. Besides leaving one of the most popular heavy metal bands in the world, which he'd co-founded in the early '80s, he also had to deal with the unsolved murder of Dana Wells, his stepson and best friend. Using music as therapy to overcome his depression.
Primitive (2000), was released. The album was met with a split reaction, and Cavalera found himself the object of criticism from factions of his fan base. The heavy amount of guest appearances and his preference toward nu-metal lyrics were the main complaints, but Cavalera maintained pride in his work and kept going, hitting the road and touring behind the album.

Wintersun 💀
.
Wintersun is a Finnish heavy metal band from Helsinki formed in 2003. Originally formed as the sideproject of Jari Mäenpää, then vocalist and guitarist of folk metal band Ensiferum.
Wintersun is known for creative harmonies, fast tempos and both harsh and clean vocals. While Mäenpää planned to perform and record each instrument for the first album himself, he still required a drummer. Kai Hahto, former member of "Rotten Sound", who agreed to perform the drums.
In 2006, Wintersun began work on their second and third albums, 'Time I' and 'Time II', which were initially intended to be released as a single album. Recording began in May of that year, but the albums would be the recipient of years-long delays for a multitude of reasons, not the least of which was the complexity of each song's mix.
Eduardo Rivadavia from AllMusic said, 'Jari Mäenpäa merges the hyper-fast precision of "Yngwie Malmsteen"-like guitar playing with the melodic sensibilities of post-"Helloween"power metal and a homegrown passion for folk-styled songwriting descended straight from trailblazing compatriots "Amorphis".'
Wintersun's superb musicianship (props to drum machine man Kai Hahto, as well) helps them win out against their evident influences in the end, making this a recommended release for lovers of relatively accessible extreme metal.
.
PS: If you like extreme metal Specially Melodic Death style "Wintersun" is a must listen band. When i first hear them i was blown away by the music and quality.
