Epica is a Dutch symphonic metal band, founded by guitarist and vocalist Mark Jansen after his departure from After Forever.
Epica is amazing, but nobodies ever heard of them! Their music is amazing and so harmonious. You should give them a chance. Metallica sucks in comparison. They are just as good as slayer, children of bodom, cradle of filth, etc.
Super underrated band

Corrosion of Conformity is an American heavy metal band from Raleigh, North Carolina formed in 1982. For almost the majority of its existence, the band has consisted of guitarist Woody Weatherman, bassist Mike Dean, drummer Reed Mullin and vocalist and rhythm guitarist Pepper Keenan.
They plowed through genres, redefining their sound and never being stuck in one "label" or another. They created their own path in a way few bands can. Unbelievably underrated.

111 Lucifer's Friend
Trivium are an American heavy metal band from Orlando, Florida, formed in 1999. After getting signed to Roadrunner Records in 2004, the band has released seven studio albums and nineteen singles.
This isn't THE most underrated band ever by any means, but I just wanted to say that these guys are truly amazing musicians. Their guitarists are incredible. Not only are they extremely technically skilled, but have a great sense of melody and rhythm. They have lots of seriously awesome riffs and solos. Their singer can actually sing for real, not just yell, scream and growl, although he is great at that too. They are like a modern thrash band that takes elements of metalcore and death metal and creates powerful songs from it. Favorite modern band alongside Opeth without a doubt.
So underrated, one of the best metal bands ever - Fakol
