Lyrically comparable to Tool. Vocally better than Mike Patton. Best live performances you will see. Versatile but still stays with the Metal and rock genre. Good List though. - tenthsage
I am not exaggerating when I say this band may have the best Metal singer of all time. He is more versatile than Mike Patton and heavier than most death metal singers (Even my favorite Mikael Akerfeldt or my second favorite Peter Tägtgren) They range from beautiful to crushing within a single song. Pretty much, if they sang in English they would be more popular.
Insomnium writes the poetic lyrics. In the grooves of death is absolutely amazing!
This is the only band I can really describe as both "Uplifting and happy" as well as "Metal"
This band is NOT metal. - Metal_Treasure
Too much underrated! This guys have some of the best metal songs I ever heard. Myles' voice is amazing, he is probabily in top 10 of todays best vocalists. - tiagocowboy11
They're great, despite their two Nu Metal albums. They have serious unnoted tallent.
Napalm Death are one of the most insane and quickest bands in music. Scum and From Enslavement to Obliteration were their golden records.
Bathory inspired the entire second wave of black metal. We would have no Darkthrone or Mayhem without Bathory. Bathory are one of few bands (along with Death) who completely overhauled their original sound and came out sounding even better.
Best death metal band ever yet barely anyone knows them!
Piece of Time is a masterpiece.
Quite possibly the most underrated metal band of all time, they have the most talented members alive, tony choy, rand burkey, steve flynn, roger patterson and kelly schaefer, and they influenced many death metal bands! Terribly underrated, give piece of time and unquestionable presence a listen.
Mudvayne should be num #1 on this list they are so underrated just listen to (scarlet letters) or any song else (Chad gray is the best vocalist in history)
Most underrated alternative metal band I've ever heard. They are also the most consistently good band I know of. You simply have to love "Send the Pain Below", "The Clincher", "Get Some", and 1000 more of their songs. Why are they not number one on the list?!
Again, this band is NOT metal. - Metal_Treasure
In my opinion, Seventh Wonder's Mercy Falls is THE best concept album ever. Literally, I mean literally, I cried because of the story. And I just about never cry. Ever. That's how powerful this is. Tommy (I'm a fan-boy) is an OUTSTANDING vocalist. Although, I'm not quite sure why he sings different in Kamelot, but in my opinion, SW's much better.
Technically flawless band. Tommy Karevik's vocals are awesome, and so's the guitar work, the drum work, everything. They're so underrated that it's sad.
114? What? Everybody likes pretend they don't exist and tries to kick them out of the big 4 like 'WHY ISN'T TESTAMENT BIG 4! ' Bunch of ignoramuses. Anthrax kicks ass, second best band out of the big 4 in my opinion and is definitely underrated.
In my opinion, Anthrax is the best band out of the big four. Both with Belladonna and Bush.
Speaking of John Bush, Armored Saint is another highly underrated band that you should give a listen.
The most underrated band of all time! Even in this list Anthrax is underrated...
These guys should be more known man! People need to know that Y2J isn't just a wrestler and recognise his voice. And the dukes guitar playing is just amazing. Listen to God pounds his nails and the solo is just magnificent!
