Top 10 Metal Bands that Should Get More Attention in 2018Metal_Treasure I included 2 types of bands:
- relatively new bands that need to be discovered
- older bands (of the 70s, 80s, 90s) that were good but for some reason were overshadowed by other bands. These bands they need to be revisited. Music tastes change from generation to generation
There are good bands every metalhead must know but they get enough attention: The Big-4 of thrash, Dream Theater, Iron Maiden, to name a few.

Well, where I live and in my community they are a very well rated band. - SoldierOfFortune
? They have a ton of attention. - SoldierOfFortune
They are are rock,not metal.
You know if you would actually listen to the band you would know that they have some Metal songs their most popular song is a metal song (Stargazer) it is true that they do have Rock songs but they are both a Rock and Metal band. - christangrant
SoldierOfFortune, the visitor's comment "They are rock,not metal" is the biggest proof Rainbow need more attention. Because this comment shows what most people know about Rainbow. Obviously Rainbow's metal legacy is severely underrated.
Rainbow had both rock and metal songs but in the 70s Black Sabbath and Judas Priest didn't have many metal songs either. If you think that all songs by Black Sabbath and Judas Priest of the 70s are metal, you are wrong - the majority of their 70s songs aren't metal.
In fact, the most advanced metal song of the 70s is Rainbow's A Light In Black (1976). The most aggressive metal song of the 70s is also theirs - Kill The King (1978). Some of the fastest metal songs of the 70s are theirs, too. Rainbow wrote the first symphonic metal song (Eyes of the World). The best metal guitar solos of the 70s are theirs - A Light In Black, Stargazer (and Deep Purple's Highway Star), etc. - Metal_Treasure
Yes, they should.
I literally just started listening to them last week, they’re actually really good.
I would recommend this band to new metal fans and all fans that aren't into extreme metal. Iced Earth have great singers and melodic songs. They have thrashy riffs but overall sound moderately heavy.

Outside of this site, yes - 445956
I did my best to make them known on this site and many metal fans on TheTopTens at least heard of their name. But Blind Guardian are still very underrated on most of the lists. Also, many new metal fans/new users of TheTopTens aren't familiar with their discography.
And outside this site they are even less known. They are more known in Europe but not so much in North America. - Metal_Treasure
Go, Blind Guardian! One of the most underrated(if not the most) bands ever. Their last album is so-so, but overall I can't even name a bad song from BG, because all are either great, good or rarely just OK(in my opinion)! But most are great! Blind Guardian is a brilliant band that is probably one of a kind. I wish more people would appreciate them!
At least give a listen to their album Darkness Descends, 1986 - Metal_Treasure
They sound like a better, harder edged version of Dokken without relationship problems with women lyrics in all their hit songs!
This is a relatively new progressive/tech death band from Canada. I saw them open up for Gojira, and they blew my mind. Extremely talented djenty band. I really think these guys could be the next big metal band. Check out their album Ironshore - ryanrimmel
They are touring with Children Of Bodom at the moment. Hopefully they can get attention. - Disturbedpotato

They are NOT a metal band - Metal_Treasure
Mettalica is one of the most amazing bands in my history, I went to their concert on August 4, 2017 IT WAS AMAZING!
I know they are winning a lot of popularity but they deserve more - Pato_cargo
Ah...perhaps no. Metal fans don't need to pay much attention to metalcore and waste their time on generic metalcore-ish bands - Metal_Treasure
umm...no - Metal_Treasure
