Most Overrated Metal BandsNoorsalah
The Top Ten
Cliff was not just the best musician of the band, after his death James was alone, the only musician among novice. In the end he became one of them. They are responsible for closing napster, the only free music provider at the time. All these to be able sell even more of the overrated black album. They were the reason metal started becoming commercial and main stream introducing the soft, abstract, no sense metal! Comparing the past with the last years I don't think there is another band disappointing me in that level.
Most overrated metal band ever
Pots & pans are better than Ulrich. Hetfield's vocals are atrocious. Bass is always drowned out, which is a shame considering their bassist was their most talented member(R.I.P.). I don't have much to say about the guitarist, other than the guitar is terribly mixed in Ride the Lightning. Everything after And Justice for All fell apart 100%. Not consistent musicians. Overrated.
Metallica is definitely the most overrated metal band in the world. I don't know why there are so many people love Metallica and consider it's a great band. I like some metal bands, such as Megadeth, Helloween, Children of Bodom, Slayer, Anthrax, Iron Maiden..., but I was/am never into Metallica because their songs always convey headache and unpleasant feeling to me inexplicably.71 Comments
It is horrible that these guys are considered top of the pile in mainstream metal nowadays. I'm in my early twenties so these guys would be held in high regard by lots people my age but these guys are everything that's wrong with metal. They are posers they don't have that powerful aura that pantera, motorhead and slayer would have. My point being they seem more commercial emo than they do metal. I thought bat country was a good song in fairness but unfortunately that seems to be it. Everything else I've heard has been fairly awful. Nightmare is meant to be one of their best loved songs I don't even consider it metal and upon hearing it my face contorted into a grimace of disgust. Also Metallica shouldn't be number 1 even though their output for the last twenty years has been horrible at least they begun by giving us some of the best metal albums ever. And also even when they are bad now they still provide entertainment in the guise of unintentional comedy like the some kind of ...more
Only emos listen to them...
Not only are they some of the most unbearable posers ever to walk the Earth (right alongside Linkin Park), but they can't even come up with their own logo. So steal Overkill's?
Many of the bands I see on this list aren't even overrated, and so shouldn't even be near these fools. Metallica's first 4 albums were kick-ass and unfathomably influential, but not even as much so as everything Led Zeppelin has ever done. Steve Harris of Iron Maiden composes the best power ballads I've ever heard ("Paschendale", "Brighter Than A Thousand Suns", "The Talisman", etc. ), and that's just the stuff that everyone overlooks because they're too busy listening to their '80s stuff, which is also undeniably awesome. The only reason that anybody thinks that Deep Purple is overrated is because they've never bothered listening to any of their music besides the "Machine Head" album. Try listening to the "In Rock" and "Fireball" albums, then reconsider.
They are more Hard Rock than Metal. - DarkBoi-X36 Comments
This juvenile pop band is metal by no stretch of the imagination - anyone who thinks otherwise should grab a screwdriver and perforate their inoperative ear drums. Corey Taylor is just a whiny douchebag who tries to act all tough, but can't sing like a man. - Vip3r
Dude, I get that your favorite metal sub-genre is Black Metal, but just because a band is "softer", or simply not Black Metal, doesn't make it any less Metal. Slipknot is as much a Metal band as any Black Metal band. - RogerMcBaloney
Slipknot in 10? next to Metallica, is the most overrated metal band!
many guys only know this band about metal, with other band which are also commercial; as Metallica (they are really good but every fan should admit that they turned very commercial)... I'm not saying they are bad, but at least I have to say that is stupid that the guy who made this list thinks that Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Pantera, Megadeth, Slayer, Judas Priest and Deep Purple are most overrated than one of the most played bands in MTV! - rock2metal
Good clean vocals but the riffs and heavy vocals are awful
They’re good! Why say not?! - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX19 Comments
How can they be overrated in metal when most metalheads don't even consider them metal in the first place? - Joeljohns249
I love Linkin Park, but let's be fair; they're not a Metal band, and even Chester stated that.
On an additional note, you can't escape being called overrated when you're incredibly successful with critics, fans and sales. - CrimsonShark
Really these guys are VERY OVERRATED and not that skilled
Aren't even metal but they are still good - DarkBoi-X22 Comments
I like slayer, but it's not like they're the single most amazing band in the world. Sure, they're influential, but that doesn't change the fact that they're incredibly overrated. They're talented, and their music is super fast and hard to play, but they do suffer from a huge case of "every song sounds the same." The drumbeat to pretty much all of their songs is just snare over and over, and the guitars get old pretty quickly. Also, let's be honest. Tom Araya is a terrible vocalist. The worst part about this all is that since I didn't say "Slayer is the most amazing band ever," this comment is going to get thumbs-downed all over the place. I like Slayer, but people need to grow up and realize that heaviness alone doesn't make a band good. - AngryByrd
I completely agree. Slayer is good, but they're probably around my 50th favourite band. Their music can't compare to other bands. - IronSabbathPriest
Heaviness =/= quality. - Alkadikce
How can you get heavier than this!?!? - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX
Slayer might be better than Demolition Hammer but your original comment was about heaviness.
Besides, I don't think Slayer had a great album since South of Heaven, but those are opinions - Alkadikce
Well, they're probably past recovery, sadly. Ever since Divine Intervention, Kerry (would he just quit and go home? ) Kerry started writing most of their songs after Divine Intervention, but before Hanneman wrote them. By the way, Divine Intervention wasn't half bad. It could've been better, though. What do Angel of Death, Chemical Warfare, Hell Awaits, Raining Blood, South of Heaven, War Ensemble, Seasons in the Abyss, Disciple, and World Painted Blood have in common? All written by J. Hanneman. Now, sadly, he's dead, and so cannot redeem Slayer. Maybe Holt can, but he's only done a mediocre job on Repentless, and, for that matter, with his own band lately. Last good Exodus album was in '03. But make no mistake, Seasons and Reign are thrash classics forever, right up with Rust in Peace. But the band's sum talent is pretty low. They had one super talented dude pushing it, and let Kerry write a song or two so he would shut up, and made some darn good albums. Then Araya and King thought ...more25 Comments
Not overrated same as megadeth and iron maiden
Not overrated. - Userguy44
I never got why they were popular to begin with. I don't even like Pantera. - PhoenixAura81
People, learn the meaning of the word "overrated". Yeah, we know that Dimebag was a great guitarist but Pantera like the most of the bands got really popular after he died. Him and Phil were only "great" musicians in the band, and only 2 albums were really good and "special".21 Comments
They are actually underrated. - I80
I like Dragonforce, but they are better power metal bands out there, such as Rhapsody, Blind Guardian, etc. Through the Fire and Flames is also kind of overrated in my opinion, they have plenty of other songs. - yungstirjoey666
Just to let people know, most of their music isn't sped up and is indeed repeatable and also does require a large amount of technical skill. They aren't really proper power metal, so can't really be compared with angra, helloween etc
They destroy the image of whole power metal community and thus bands like Blind Guardian, Sabaton, Gamma Ray, Therion, Iced Earth, Kamelot, Symphony X, Angra... That are actual quality power metal get shunned upon.21 Comments
Dave mustaine is a much better guitarist than singer
Good, but more overrated than Metallica. - Adrian_4
They are not overrated they are legends
Absolutely terrible band. Never heard a good album (after Peace Sells) from these pretentious douchebags.22 Comments
I don't listen to the overrated Run to the Hills, I prefer The Nomad. Wait...
Oh no I can't listen to Iron Maiden anymore because the whole band is overrated. Shame, I have to switch to Judas Priest. Oh no, traditional heavy metal as a whole is overrated, why not search for some funeral doom metal? Ah, metal is overrated, if I want to shine from the crowd, I have to find something else.
Maybe I should listen to Oleg Lundstrem's Big Band. Hell no! Music as a whole is overrated, maybe I should read about medieval France. Um, free time is overrated, I will try to learn/work all the time. No, life is overrated, I have to kill myself. Suicide is also overrated, what should I do? Maybe I'll go back listening to Iron Maiden and don't care about what other people think of it. - Alkadikce
Maiden are top 3 of all time without doubt.
Metallica better than Maiden? Only in the mind of Lars Ulrich.
Most overrated. Same chord progressions for 30 odd years and still playing sold out concerts. People who start listening to metal, start with Maiden with time they mature and move on to bands like Priest.
From Maiden to Priest? Despite Iron Maiden being more popular, I think it's the other way around. Both are very accessible by metal standards, but Judas Priest's songs are way more radio friendly and usually have pretty simple melodies.
Which is the typical chord progression in every Iron Maiden song? I thought Green Day were the kings of staple chord progression
Never mind, it's your opinion, but I can't see how somebody thinks Judas Priest is a more mature and intellectual band with songs like "United" or "Nightcrawler", both sounding like children's songs - Alkadikce
What the hell is this even doing on this list?! Maiden is worthy of all the praise it gets. Great band.19 Comments
They have some great songs (In The End, Heart of Fire, etc.), and I do think that they get a bit too much hate, but I get why they're in this list. Their music is pretty generic, and Andy Biersack, while not bad, is not that great of a singer (Jake Pitts is pretty good guitarist though, obviously not Dave Mustaine level, but still good nevertheless). I also agree that their emo fanbase is too cringy. I don't want to hear another "this band saved my life " But they are technically not really metal. - yungstirjoey666
A universally hated band cannot be overrated - Joeljohns249
Honestly, the guitarist is the highlight of the band, you'll get an awesome intro and then Andy's voice kicks in, along with a generic drum track... Andy's voice, despite sounding gritty, is just very weak, you don't get a sense of power behind it, and his harsh vocals are some of the worst I've heard where the accent goes all twangy. The Legacy had an awesome intro and then it just lost all its momentum, and the only songs I can say were good all the way through were In The End, Fallen Angels and I Am Bulletproof.
The band is not as good as their fans claim them to be, only Jake Pitts is talented on this band, he is one hell of a guitarist, with this band you get an awesome lead guitar with horrible vocals, drumming and bass, pretty much the only good thing about the band is the lead guitar, they are generic glam metal and in the beggining they were playing generic metalcore, that makes them a natural generic band
I totally agree, but have you ever heard the amazing rhythm guitarist Jinxx? The lead and rhythm do AMAZING guitar dual riffs AND solos. Overall you're completely right. - Plonderss16 Comments
While their influence and importance are noteworthy and they have some good tracks, Black Sabbath is arguably the most overrated Metal band that I know of. Partly because they tend to be the only Metal band of their time period that gets any sort of attention, and hence overshadows other great bands like Deep Purple, Scorpions and Rainbow, who were just as influential to Heavy Metal.
On an additional note, Ozzy Osbourne. Yes, his voice suits Black Sabbath's gloomy atmosphere and its recognizable. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean it's great. I can name numerous singers from several genres (Yes, even Pop Music) who are better singers than Ozzy and his successor, Ronnie James Dio eclipses him so badly it's not even funny.
Metallica sold out? Guess what, Ozzy did that too, but MUCH worse! By pulling out a reality T.V. show, which embarrassed one of his daughters enough to wind up not joining him on that. Also, many of his solo songs are really poor if given a thought. - CrimsonShark
Black sabbath started metal. They are the kings of metal. They have no business being on here. All of these people that are talking trash on them and liking each others comments are pathetic - Sabbath
I would argue that Black Sabbath is underrated. Their early work with Ozzy was all great, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and Sabotage don't get NEARLY enough credit. Their are two masterful albums with Dio that no one cares about (Heaven and Hell was great as well), Born Again, Headless Cross and Tyr were all amazing and 13 had a lot of energy. I would put Black Sabbath in my top 5 bands of all time, probably at #4. - Caleb9000
Uh...I don't think they're underrated at all. In fact, they're at the top of most 'Top 10 Metal Bands' lists. - AdamDestructorJr.
They're aren't overrated! - Userguy4411 Comments
They may not be black metal, but at least they can be considered gothic metal, unlike Nightwish or WT. - yungstirjoey666
Cradle Of Filth sounds like ass - shanelester67
Black metal? Seriously? More like wannabe metal!
They Are Good Band But Overrated too much!
They Are Not A Black Metal Band, the Real black Metal Belong to Norway and Sweden! BURZUM MAYHEM EMPEROR DIMMU BORGIR IMMORTAL DARKTHRONE GORGOROTH Dark Funeral BATHORY and etc.
That band name sounds like it was created by a wannabe tough guy. - PhoenixAura81
Heavier version of Nickelback - all their songs sound exactly the same. And Jekyll and Hyde is the worst I've heard over the airwaves since Coldplay was inescapably popular. The only reason they're "big" right now is because Wrong Side of Heaven's music video managed to whip the general populace into a circlejerk frenzy because of the military theme, and apparently nobody knows how to draw the line at "Yeah, that one thing they did was good but let's just let it die now."
Seriously. One decent song with a decent message does not make them good.
God what an abysmal band on so many levels. Vocalist who can't sing, some of the most garbage lyrics ever penned, generic riffs that are stolen from Pantera and Machine Head, and a fanbase consisting entirely of rednecks.
Saw them live and Ivan is BY FAR the worst singer of all time without his voice effects in the studio
What year did you see them? Because earlier in the band's career Ivan was an alcoholic and performed drunk at many concerts. Now he is clean and sings a lot better. - Sh4rp1e3 Comments
How can they be overrated in metal when most metalheads don't even consider them metal in the first place? - Joeljohns249
Shock rock, not metal. - Userguy44
His lyrics are fantastic, but his style of singing isn't that good.
Not a metal band.7 Comments
They're not a metal band, why are they on this list? Same for Zeppelin.
They are satanic! Their name stands for “Knights in satanic service” - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX
I love kiss! And there not even metal. But anyway there the best band ever!
Kiss is hard rock - zxm
OH MY GOD. This band is horrible, it's one note breakdowns and techno. Slipknot, Priest, Metallica, Sabbath, and Avenged Sevenfold could definitely be considered overrated but at least they have good music to back it up. AA should be #1.
Talentless hacks who only seem to know how to write pointless 0-0-0-1-0-0-0 breakdowns. Hopefully the scene kids who like these guys eventually grow up and listen to something worthwhile. Oh, and this band is anything but metal, despite what they'd tell you.
This band is the single biggest crime against humanity since Hitler
The second worst metal band of all time, and like bring me the horizon, they suck5 Comments
The Poison was kickass album, everything else I have to dissect for good songs which includes SAF, yes I find that album overrated
Why are these guys so popular? They're one of the worst metalcore bands out there. Generic, unoriginal, emo band with cheesy lyrics and terrible vocals, and they suck live. There's so much better metalcore bands out there. Listen to As I Lay Dying or August Burns Red, not this crap.
Not Metal, but a really good Metalcore-band!
Not metal but extremely Overrated - christangrant
They are not afraid of ridicule and questioning. When the die-hards are still quarrelling about the classification of metal rock and roll, they prove everything with their strength.
They are overhated. Just a bunch of kids having fun, no need to hate them. - SoldierOfFortune
I would say Babymetal is more weird than overrated. - ThatoneMetalhead
Why are they on the list2 Comments
I think they’re the most underrated of The Big 4. - Userguy44
Nah Anthrax deserve their praise. They wrote awesome riffs and they had a unique sound. Just because they're not an uber-fast uber-brutal band like Dark Angel doesn't mean they suck. Plus their new albums are a lot better than Slayer's and Metallica's new albums.
To be honest, Anthrax is the least known and, thus, the most underrated out of the Big 4 of Thrash. Its surprising how people want to jump in on how Anthrax isn't as good as the other three, although in terms of 2010s material Anthrax has (so far) done the best. - CrimsonShark
Easily the worst of the "Big 4" and rides off the coat tails of the others.
One decent album (among the living) gets them grouped in with 3 of the most influential, genre defining bands of a generation.
Not underrated or overrated. - Userguy44
Don't say anything bad about this awesome band! Michael Akerfeldt is one of the greatest songwriters in metal. Blackwater Park easily makes it into my top 10 albums of all time. - IronSabbathPriest
They deserve no place on this list because they are the most underrated band I've ever heard
No positive or negative opinions regarding their musical ability or the quality of their albums and songs" I just think that the hype surrounding this band is insane: literally ANY negative feedback about Opeth is regarded as hypocrisy. No band should be that overrated.2 Comments
22 albums that sound exactly the same. They should be no. 1. - RighteousMalevolent
Nothing special here at all.
Never knew why they are worshipped so much. This band is extremely overrated and mediocre at best
They're okay but not great9 Comments
They're twice on the list? - Userguy44
They are not even metal.
Not metal, lol. - RighteousMalevolent
Not metal at all. - Userguy44
Whenever I say "metal", the first thing that comes to people's minds is AC/DC. That's just wrong! - Rorywilbren2 Comments
Few albums, catchy riffs and very dumb lyrics, I don't get why they are so praised
I so agree with Rambles. And they definitely didn't deserve the Grammy for Best Metal Performance. - Metal_Treasure
Can't believe these clowns won a grammy. It should have gone to Iron Maiden, maybe even Sevendust
I actually like these guys, but come on! THEY'RE OVERRATED! These guys are more famous than any modern metal band which is not fair at all!1 Comment
It's mostly their Chop Suey song that you refer to as "overrated" - yungstirjoey666
Not metal but extremely Overrated - christangrant
They aren't metal but they are heavy and they aren't overrated in my opinion
Up! "Such a lonely day, and it's mine.."
More underrated in my opinion. - FlaMeThrOwer96 Comments
So Korn should be hated on for pioneering a genre which created some amazing and highly successful albums in the 90s. It's not their fault bands came with it. That literally makes no sense. Their new content is open for debate but they are hardly over rated they don't have that much presence in modern day metal. - rbodding
If it weren't for Korn there would be no Limp Bizkit or Linkin Park. I think that's reason enough.
Why do people like these guys? They're the ones who created nu metal. One of the most hated metal subgenres. If you people hate nu metal so much then blame Korn for it. They're the ones who made it.
Get this in the top 10. They're the ones who made nu metal and influenced some crappy bands.3 Comments
I think they are very mediocre - Userguy44
I like them but they're 12 year old scene girls only linking them for their looks.
True, a band is about the music, not the looks of the people. If that was the case... My Chemical Romance wouldn't be one of the best bands. - JoMama163
They also try to be edgy but suck at music and the vocals sound like someone swallowed a frog, gargled saltwater fir an hour, and screamed into a briken mike set
Metalcore in general is overrated3 Comments
So overrated! I have no idea why so many people are into them. They're just boring, uninteresting, and mediocre at best. Really terrible band in my eyes.
Boring awful just no way interesting
Their earlier albums (remission-Crack the skye) were beautiful but they dropped and then boom. Emperor of sand.they however moved from sluge to prog
Cheesy poser band. - Userguy44
Seriously, have you HEARD their new music? They sold out worse than Green Day did. Better yet, they sold out worse than Metallica did. (And that's almost literally impossible. )
Started out ok but then turned into a fetty wap/little Wayne guitar solo type band. Absolutely terrible.
Death practically shaped the entire death metal genre and always managed to say one step ahead of their contemporaries (minus the crappy Sound of Perseverance). Not overrated in the slightest.
They're good but they weren't the first death metal band. Possessed was.
People who vote for Death, go hide. Saying Death is overrated is like saying Iron Maiden is overrated.
Good to see this garbage band on the list.3 Comments
Judas Priest should not be on this list. Its one of the most influencal metal band that ever existed.
Very popular but incredible! - PhoenixAura81
Why the hell is Judas Priest on this list?
What? If anything, Priest is underrated!5 Comments
I've never understood why they were places so high in critics eyes. They've got a few good songs but the majority of there music is nothing but filler - sextysex
Mediocre melodeath at its best. Perfect for beginner extreme metal fans, and viking wannabes.
Amon Amarth aren't overrated in the slightest. They're basically a bucket list of everything that makes a great band: brilliant and memorable riffs, great vocals, stellar lyrics that really capture the viking spirit, a terrific atmosphere, and they're highly consistent in quality. They're completely deserving of all their praise.
Nope. Amon Amarth deserve their praise. Their music is too awesome.
I'll never understand the hype surrounding this band. They have one phenomenal song, and that is Twilight of the Thunder God. After that... Everything just sounds like a bastard child of this song. CRIMINALLY overrated.3 Comments
Metal? Hell no! - Userguy44
They're not metal and not good. - PhoenixAura81
They should be removed from this list.
Led Zeppelin is one of the best bands ever, but they are not metal. They had a lot of influence on metal, but they are a hard rock band. - ryanrimmel
This whole list is a joke. It just seems to me like this person couldn't think of a lot of other bands to name other then the legendary bands. Metallica was the first thrash band to play in arenas before mtv even discovered them. - Sabbath10 Comments
A universally hated band cannot be overrated - Joeljohns249
More like overhated. - RighteousMalevolent
Not overrated, just awful.
Limp Bizkit getting praise of any kind makes them overrated. They deserve none. - AdamDestructorJr.
They created the musical abortion known as "djent". Get them higher, also, their vocalist sounds like an angry dog. - RighteousMalevolent
Their music makes me lose brain cells - DarthPhasey
I don't know why so many people like them. Most of their music sounds boring and monotonous due to the guitar tuning.
They suck ass? Using 7 string and 8 string guitars is just a terrible idea, as a guitarist I tend to avoid bands that tune any lower than drop B. And all the songs are creative, but they're terrible guitar tone ruins every possibly good song with they're "brutal" drop g# riff.
Children Of Bodom is not overrated, you have just listened to their wrong stuffs, listen to their first 3 albums and you'll see their not overrated at all, Halo Of Blood is also great. They're actually one of the most underrated metal band
How are these guys below Amon Amarth? Compared them, Children of Boredom is terrible.
These guys deserve the hype. They are like Slayer, but Technical Death Metal... Which is pretty awesome. - ThatoneMetalhead
They suck so bad that I had to go to a hospital to replace my ears1 Comment
Sorry, but Cannibal Corpse are definitely the most overrated death metal band. I hate it when people say they're better than legends such as Death, Autopsy, Morbid Angel, Entombed, etc. - IronSabbathPriest
These guys are so boring with the exception of their first three records. - RighteousMalevolent
This band ISN'T actually TERRIBLE, it's just that it gets way too much praise for mediocre guitar work, low quality locals, and poor lyrics. DM bands like: Death, Morbid Angel, COB, Opeth, Obituary, Decide, Etc. ARE MUCH better than this band. It also contributed to several negative stereotypes, contributing to a problem in metal. We're isolated enough already, no need to make it worse with bad lyrics. This band was too focused on shock value and making as much money from morbid curiosity, instead of making good music. Their "best" song, "Hammer Smashed Face" is mediocre at best.
They're not that bad, but the style gets old fairly soon, their albums are very similar and show little variation musically or lyrically4 Comments
Are they really overrated? I've never met one person that would fess up to liking Hellyeah (rightfully so. They're garbage)
Are these guys overrated? Hell Yeah. - ThatoneMetalhead
Honestly, they aren't the worst, but they can be overrated... I mean... I feel like people just wear it for the icon merch, not because of the band. Same with Nirvana and Blink 182, most people just where the merch to where it, not even knowing the meaning behind it. - JoMama163
Wow. They're aren't even metal. - Userguy44
I'm really, REALLY surprised they are not number one. - Roy_Aspiros
You can't be surprised, idiot. Guns N' Roses is not a heavy metal band. All those years, people couldn't understand this fact. Face the truth.
1st album was pretty much or less good after that they sold out and became a stupid gothic band
The only Norwegian Black Metal band I don't like.
Dimmu Borgir are hardly overrated, they don't exactly get much praise, and all the trve-kvlt metalheads tend to label them as a disgrace to black metal (even though they're much closer to symphonic metal nowadays)
I Know their 2010 Abarahadabra Album Sucks, But This Guys Are Awesome and Real Symphonic Black Metal, They are Not a band Like Cradle of Filth, In My Opinion Cof even is Good band, But COF Is Not a Black Band!
In My Opinion they are Best Black Band After Burzum, Mayhem, Darkthrone, Emperor, Gorgoroth, Immortal and Bathory!
Why is Rammstein everyone's favourite band? Their music has it's style and is original I agree, but probably the most overrated band. I personally hate them.
Not at all. I think they have a perfectly balanced rating as of now. Their rating on most lists (around 30-20th place) fall exactly in line with the quality of their music.
These guys are creepy and overrated! I don't know why so many people like them. It really baffles my mind.
No, they are good - Userguy44
Pretentious garbage. It seems like all they do is hold circle jerks between who can write the least cohesive time signatures and melody changes.
They belong in the top ten. James LaBrie is one of the worst singers of all time. - RighteousMalevolent
I love this band and all, but they are honestly pretty overrated, a large portion of their songs while good seem to lack emotional appeal to me, it’s impressive how they write their music but they all seem to focus too much on the technical talents more than emotional. - FLIPMODE2 Comments
LOG is a bunch of pussies that give in to terrorism.
No. Never ever put lamb of god and overrated in a sentence.
They invented trash metal! - Userguy44
They deserve to be here. They suck, musically they’re just a ripoff of Motörhead. They took everything that made them amazing and made it garbage.
"Musically, they are a ripoff of Motorhead". Except they're not. This band was way more aggressive and they had a more unique sound which helped make up the blueprints for black metal. Motorhead made the same album 22 times. - RighteousMalevolent
I'm a black metal fan, but I hate this band sure they created black metal, but their music sounds like bunch of distorted noise, and calling their vocals mediocre is being generous. - XxembermasterxX
HAHAA, get them off the list immediately. - RighteousMalevolent
Legendary is unequal to great. Honestly, this is just mediocre black metal in its "prime." Terrible vocals that sound like some talentless drunk attempting to be evil at a karaoke bar. Blast beats all the way through, and mind bogglingly repetitive guitars that I can't stand. Its only atmospheric when you try to force yourself into thinking so. Crappy lyrics with no thought, combine with ear grading music and you've got a band that I will never be able to appreciate
Influential is unequal to great. Sure they may have influenced a ton of bands in black metal but that doesn't mean they're not mediocre black metal with awful vocals and repetitive guitars.4 Comments
Tool can definitely be called overrated but they have got 1-2 really good songs in the form of Lateralus and The Grudge. Their worst album is 10,000 Days and the worst song is The Pot. I never really saw the appeal for this band and no, I'm not new to Tool as my Dad is a huge fan of them and I got a lot of exposure to their songs since my pre-teen years yet, I find them to be pretty underwhelming and boring.
Tool just put some odd time signatures and weird lyrics in their songs and the fangirls think it's cool and amazing music lol
Boring guitar, atrocious vocals, uninteresting songwriting.
There are way too many boring fillers within their songs just for the sake of extending the song's length. They're pretty much an uninteresting and overhyped band, and not to mention their fanbase is extremely obnoxious and pretentious.
Immensely overrated and boring as hell.5 Comments
Metal/deathcore is a stupid genre. It is only listened to because ONE:the name sounds "cool" Two:its emotional... Whatever that means
Really? They're not on here, but Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Dio, The Scorpions, Judas Priest, Children of Bodom, and Led Zeppelin are? Seriously? I can't stand KSE. They're emo music masking themselves as metal. I can't consider them at all metal with a good conscience.
They destroyed Holy Diver. One of the worst metal covers possibly of all time.
Yep. Not to mention that they ruined Holy Diver, this band is just taking everything bad about FFDP and adding to metalcore, which is already a horrible genre. They're not good at all.1 Comment
