Most Underrated Heavy Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 3
They're exist at the wrong time..where big 4 still influenced most of thrash metal world. To be honest..their music maybe more aggressive and attractive compared to big 4.
For me..dimebag, vinnie and phil are the best!
Dime is the one who inspired me to play guitar and still encourages me today
I think they are correctly rated. - Metal_Treasure
No other band on mother earth ever made songs, so rhythmic and melodically diverse... Yet I can't find their name in the top 200 Hard rock bands!
They deserve to be counted among Anthrax and Korn.
These guys are great but no body hears about them more people should listen to them there really good
Saliva is epic and better than almost all of these bands on here
Strapping Young Lad would knock off Avenged Sevenfold's socks off with one single drum beat, man. These are way more complex than the majority of post-grunge bands (I don't mind Staind, as long as it's during the Dysfunction era and I love Deftones, in fact you'll love S.Y.L. if you like Deftones). Listen to S.Y.L. , Satan's Ice Cream Truck, Love? , Detox, Oh My God and All Hail the New Flesh. They are also pretty funny too.
The band made couple masterpiece albums (City, Alien) and few good albums in relatively short time of existence. The band had enormous amount of talent in them, both playing and songwriting skills. Not just Devin Townsend, but also Jed Simon (guitar), Byron Stroud (bass) and most of all Gene Hoglan (drums, the Atomic-Clock himself) are excellent players.
SYL has more class and quality in their "average" song than most of the bands have in their whole catalogue. SYL managed to to blend many styles, like industrial, thrash, death, melodic death, grindcore, progressive, djent, hard rock etc. Perfectly together and create their own unique style of complex and modern extreme metal, which remains to be a class of their own, right at the top. But they haven't ever got nearly as enough attention as they deserve.
Alter Bridge is the best rock-cum-metal band there is out there today. But they ARE NOT HEAVY METAL!
Although a fan of a7x and Syn too but Mr Mark Tremonti is Awesome.V 1 Comment
Really good speed metal band. Especially their first album
Heavy Metal Maniac
Dio is way too underrated like I know their vocalist Ronnie James Dio aka The best vocalist of all time is dead and all but they deserve more credit bands like Metallica are so overrated but they aren't as good as most bands like Dio. Dio is classic if you don't know Dio you don't know metal Dio is by far one of the best bands out there they had the perfect singer but not many people has heard of Dio. I am growing up this generation I am 13 and I don't listen to this popular music I listen to metal or in other words Dio.
Ronnie James Dio is the artist and man, I will always cherish with vivid memories and endless respect - one of the best back catalogues in the history of rock n roll. RIP
The first band that got me into metal world.
Love their songs, their voice, their riffs n drums
Definitely one of the most underrated metal band.
Underrated as hell... they are so goood! Way better than a7x in my opinion...V 1 Comment
Great Band. One of the first Power Metal Bands. Since '77 their first album they've got a lot of really great albums, like "Thundersteel", "Fire Down Under" or "Destiny" and that's only a few.
R.I.P. mark Reale
Best they have the coolest slap bassist around.
Got me into metal, and is in my opinion one of the best out there!
Finnish power metal band.. Popular nationaly.. But underrated internationaly.. They should have a high position they deserve.. But silly they are kicked away by other artist's like Justin bieber/One direction.. And I DARE YOU TO LISTEN THEIR SONGS
They're not exactly metal. Lemmy himself states they've never been metal. - Metal_Treasure
Motörhead sucks.Thanks Lemmy For Passing.Albums Are Awful,Those Smoker Vocals,Jeez.
NOT underrated, NOT metal.
The only band on here that is a true metal band. Get out the way ax7, they can't keep up with the onslaught of Meshuggah's power. Shinedown? Not even a metal band!V 1 Comment
