Most Overrated Metal BandsNoorsalah

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.
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
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.
This band is only known for criminal activity and freezing moon is the most repetitive pointless song ever. At least burzums music is actually good.
How can Mayhem be on this list. Mayhem was one of the greatest Metal bands of all time. - RamblesV 1 Comment
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. - SYLFan1234
Boring awful just no way interesting
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.
All of Death's albums were great except The Sound Of Perseverance which was okay. - Rambles
Death is overrated? Not in the slighest! Chuck was one of the most influental and best songwriter and guitarist in metal.Liste to some of his masterpieces like "Spiritual Healing","Spirit Crusher","Voice of the Soul","Lack of Comprehension","Crystal Mountain" and many more.Albums "Human","Symbolic" and "The Sound of Perseverance" are true masterpieces - DejanKalinicV 3 Comments
This isn't even metal, but it is overrated and sucks.
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.

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)
I'd say they are overrated for their genre. But as a whole metal genre, they aren't that much of overrated. - zxmV 3 Comments
I don't understand why they are constantly being labeled with the metal tag when they don't play metal
Because their fans think they are. Even though they're rock.
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
Manowar first four albums were great and influenced many bands like Viking era Bathory. After the first four they became a joke. - Rambles
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
These guys go to underrated section - DejanKalinic
This band is not overrated
Neurosis underrated? I strongly disagree. - ThatoneMetalhead
Repetitive and cheap sounding. Most of the melodies aren't even good. (Land of the Dead is utter brilliance, though)
