Everyone knows zakk for his shredding and pinch harmonics.. but not many know him for his amazing song writing ability. Listen to his acoustic material like hangover music or book of shadows. Stuff is great
I think Black Label Society is really underrated, they are not very known even by many metal fans... the Zakk solos are really good and his voice is awesome! - rock2metal
Deserves so much more recognition! Zakk rocks
In This River - R.I. P Dimebag
How can you beat the voice of these guys?
I don't think they're underrated
Their sound it pretty mainstream and most of their stuff is not exactly metal, which made them very popular. I heard of them from a non-metal fan and it's not a good sign. - Metal_Treasure
Nobody really thinks about these guys much, but the songs they write and amazing and should be checked out.
These guys deserve way more accolades than they get. Brilliant songs - sextysexV 2 Comments
Well, I'm not sure they're better than Megadeth. I mean, Megadeth has a huge fanbase for a reason. But I believe Flotsam and Jetsam to be in the top ten thrash metal bands, along with the aforementioned Megadeth, Kreator, Metallica, Anthrax, Testament, Sepultura, Death Angel, Coroner, and Annihilator.
Their debut album Doomsday For The Deceiver is better than Peace Sells... But Who's Buying and Kill 'Em All. The lyrics penned by Jason Newsted are also great.
Kings of speed metal. Enough said.V 1 Comment
Truly sad that I have to go all the way to page 4 to find this band. Such a unique sound and better than any "top charting" band today.
This is one of the best bands of Gothic metal I've ever heard and it's worth a listen.
Oh hell, it's one of my favourite bands ever!
Easily one of the most underrated bands of all time.
Most people just know Black number 1 & Christian Woman. Some know a couple more songs.
The kings of Gothic Metal did get some recognition in the 90s, but should have gotten a lot more..
Just check out: Gravitational Constant, Paranoid (Sabbath cover), Bloody Kisses, Too Late: Frozen, Suspended In Dusk, Be My Druidess, Red Water, Wolf Moon, Haunted, White Slavery, Everyone I Love Is Dead, All Hallows Eve, 12 Black Rainbows, Life Is Killing Me, Nettie, Anesthesia, September Sun..Hell, just listen to their albums and see for yourself!
There so underrated there not even on the list
Underrated has nothing to do with this list, all metalheads know the bands in the top ten, they're not underrated, overkill on the other hand is underrated af
This band has an amazing leve
This band is slow, and heavy as all heck... but they make beautiful music that makes time seem to speed up. Especially their song Aeon.
Meshuggah + Yes = Neurosis. This band is one of my favorite discoveries of the last few months! - ryanrimmelV 1 Comment
Exodus is the Kreator of thrash (see what I did there)?
Yes I think exodus are underrated because we think of Metallica,slayer,megadeth and anthrax but it has been argued for many years that exdous is the first and creator of thrash metal
Greatest Japanese Metal band of All-Time!
Its not only their work that has blown me away, but also, their loyal fanbase as well. There was a time when X Japan was number two n the Best HEavy Metal Bands' list.
This is my favorite new metal band.
Very underrated indeed. Just listed to Hades, Heroes To Us or other songs like Defeat.
Definitely the most underrated.
So underrated... It hurts... One of the best metal bands of all time...
Just listen to songs like: Melisaa, The Oath, Come To The Sabbath, Evil, Desecration Of Souls, A Corpse Without Soul, The solos are amazing, The voice is not that bad! This band is even better than Iron Mainde(I'm saying that just cauze they have the same style they are very alike) - AnimeLover22
They were even claimed to have progressive related sound... Yup no one knows about them by the way the Timo Tolki was ranked as one of the fastest guitar players, and their keyboard player who's brother is the drummer from hammerfall was ranked Number 1 for best keyboard player... They influenced Sonata Arctica and many Other power metal bands... I been a fan of them but never had the chance to meet someone who likes them or even knows about them! Very under rated everyone else on the list are well known! Specially in the USA
