61 Napalm Death Napalm Death Napalm Death are a British grindcore/death metal band formed in Meriden, West Midlands, England, in 1981. While none of its original members remain in the group, the lineup of vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway, bassist Shane Embury, guitarist Mitch Harris and drummer Danny Herrera has remained consistent more.

Napalm Death are one of the most insane and quickest bands in music. Scum and From Enslavement to Obliteration were their golden records.

62 Pantera Pantera Pantera was a Heavy Metal band formed in 1981 by guitarist Dimebag Darrell and drummer Vinnie Paul. The group got into mainstream after changing from Glam Metal to Groove Metal. The band's most successful album is "Vulgar Display of Power". As the pioneers of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, They more.

How the hell are these guys underrated? I mean they aren't that overrated but they are far from underrated, especially now that they're disbanded. - MetalFoREVer1228

Pantera took thrash metal to a new level. Without them, we wouldn't have Rammstein, Stone Sour, Mastodon and more. Amazing riffs, furious tempo in some songs, face melting guitar solos and gut busting vocals. Although I like Staind, since when have they ever been a metal band?

Pantera was an amazing band that did not receive nearly as much credit as they deserved. Their edgy take lead the world of thrash metal to new heights of which the world had never seen before.

I love Pantera, but they're not underrated
They're recognized as "the guys who saved metal in the 90s"...
They're one of the few bands that gets the credit they deserve - Rocker00
