Most Underrated Heavy Metal Bands
The Contenders: Page 5
One of my favorite band together with Savatage and Metallica,
I just can't get how their ratings are so low
People see the name and expect stuff like Cannibal Corpse. Death is not even close to Corpse. They have excellent music, too.
Agreed totally. But they aren't heavy metal.
Their not underrated in overall fame, they have plenty of that. The fact that they were one of the early bands that had a harder edge to their music an a lot of people don't consider them metal, to me, that makes them underrated. KISS, along with Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and a few others were the forefather's of the genre, even though their music isn't considered as hard as today's metal. It had to start somewhere.
This Is Metal Not Rock. Why Are They Here? Anyway, These Guys Are Like Over Sixtyfive Years Old Already.V 1 Comment
A heavier version of korn
Confuses me how’s this band is so good but so undervalued on many lists on TheTopTens
They are kinda their own genre but they are pretty underrated at least they're good albums
I don't think that they are Heavy Metal, but they're defintely extremely underrated. Their debut is out of this world, it's tremendous! - MetalGurja
Russell Allen has an incredible vocal range, just listen to "The Sacrifice" and you'll get me.
Great band! And I only heard about them a few months ago... I'm ashamed
Never Turn Your Back on a Friend it's probably better than your favorite album. I'm serious.
Voivod's importance and influence in bands such as Meshuggah, Dillinger, Mastodon, Annihilator, Vektor, Nocturnus, among many others. Voivod's legacy is atonishing mainly when it comes to guitar dissonance and creativity. The late Dennis "Piggy" D'amour is my favourite metal guitar player. And Langevin is such a crafty songwriter... Dimension Hatross, Killing Technology, Nothingface, Outer Limits, even the chaotic Phobos... Man... This guys are as underrated as it can get.
They should be top five with songs like psycho surgery, dogs breakfest, skeevis delima, vanishing lessons, and where moth and rust destroy
Umm Dream Theater is Prog Metal... But still metal ( they do have some heavy metal influences)... - MusicalPony
No doubt, great musicians, great band. But I wouldn't call them underrated anymore - in 2013 they were nominated for a Grammy Award (lost out to Black Sabbath) and they are also very popular even among non-metal fans.
Critical acclaim and popularity don't speak underrated. - Metal_Treasure
Sure they are the considered the greatest black metal artists of all-time. But when's the last time YOU heard anybody talk about them?
