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
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.
They deserve no place on this list because they are the most underrated band I've ever heard
Only there first two albums were great. - Rambles
That has got to be a joke, still life, blackwater park, and ghost reveries are amazing records! - imabigpotatoV 1 Comment
These guys are boring! If you want good German metal, listen to Helloween! - IronSabbathPriest
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.
These guys are creepy and overrated! I don't know why so many people like them. It really baffles my mind.
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. - CostcoHotDogs
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.V 1 Comment
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.
I like black metal (Immortal, Gorgoroth and Bathory mostly) but their satanic fanboys worship them. They think their concerts are rituals for the devil. Also both the vocalists suck, that means you Dead. Also the guitar playing is very simple rarely playing any solos. The drummer always plays blast beats. There is nothing special about this band.
How can Mayhem be on this list. Mayhem was one of the greatest Metal bands of all time. - RamblesV 2 Comments
I'd say they are overrated for their genre. But as a whole metal genre, they aren't that much of overrated. - zxm
Overrated compared to Epica but not to the another bands on the symphonic metal.
Every comment is unneeded
They are not overrrated.V 1 Comment
This isn't even metal, but it is overrated and sucks.
Same BS formula as Linkin Park, but this band somehow manages to be worse.
This is just a horrible wank-fest band who just plays fast and changes tempos and time-sIgnitures for the sake of showing off without any real passion. I feel like people just like this band, because they're old. I bet in 20 years, people are going to praise Brain Drill and Rings of Saturn.
Overrated? They're more underrated. Especially on TheTopTens.
Uh, NIN isn't metal. Sure they made some metal sounding stuff like March of the Pigs and Mr. Self Destruct but they never claimed to be metal. Plus they're underrated.
Marilyn Manson is way more overrated than this amazing band.
There name sounds like Nine Tailed FoxV 1 Comment
All their songs and points are just "We hate conservatives! Anarchy and communism yeah! " Super annoying.
They get UK Xmas No1 and now everyone is a fan? Lame
These guys, replacing Anthrax as one of the Big 4? My arse.
A crappy guitar production, monotonous drums, bland vocals, same-y riffs and a lack of songwriting ability.
Slayer made this work in 1986, these guys didn't.
We Have Arrived - Their best, amazingly. Sloppy, inconsistent, unformed and raw. And yet, perfectly acceptable Speed/Thrash.
Darkness Descends - A generic and overlong version of Reign In Blood.
Leave Scars - The same as above, but with longer songs and a slightly better production.
Time Does Not Heal - Same as above, but with songs that are WAY to long and a better production.
See a general theme here? Dark Angel are not cutting edge (Slayer) or ever improve on an idea (Morbid Saint)
Sadus is just so much better.
Man, these guys are pretty overrated, at least in my opinion. Sure they have a few good albums, but a lot of it is pretentious rubbish with technical overuse to steal ponies from the Omar down in the clouds I see a map we arrive at the autopista que bien llegamos a casa desde un árbol muy sabroso sin arrogancia
I’ve been meaning to try them, I’m hearing a lot about them so I want to see if they deserve the praise.
Edit: OKAY, I CHECKED THEM OUT, THEY’RE AMAZING, GET THEM THE HELL OFF THIS LIST, HAVE YOU LISTENED TO THE SONG OCTAVARIUM?! - CostcoHotDogs
Manowar first four albums were great and influenced many bands like Viking era Bathory. After the first four they became a joke. - Rambles
