The Top Ten
some power metal classics are as follows - through the fire and flames, I want out, emerald sword, Hunting high and low, rebellion in dreamland, full moon and mirror mirror, listen to those songs and you will be addicted to power metal. Guaranteed - wolphert
DragonForce, Stratovarios, Rhapsody of Fire, Blind Guardian, Nightwish, Darkmoor, Avantasia the list goes on all great bands!
As much as I like the musicianship it is really boring woo look how fast I can go up the fret board and how my friend can play off beat grooves!
Opeth. enough said
Nile, Cryptopsy, Necrophagist, Obscura,...
by the way, Opeth isn't tech DM, they are just prog DM. - Metal_Treasure
Very underrated - unknown subgenre but takes much talent to play. Coroner and Annihilator are my favorite from this subgenre and they are awesome. - Metal_Treasure
The beauty of the orchestra mixed with metal, the "beast" in person. Who can't love this?
Yep, thought I will found this genre in this place :( But the most Overrated metal genre is Nu-Metal
Progressive metal is unknown because I really can't find a prog metal band that rocks unless dark tranquillity
The only people who don't like folk metal are people who haven't listened to it.
I have only listened to this once and I think it is amazing
The Best Of All Subs of metal of course...
Bands like : Eluveitie, Mago de Oz, Korplikani, Turisas, Týr, and must others band...
Live the pagan times agaun with Folk Metal
Asian Folk Metal is interesting:

Doom is very powerful with much diversity. Doom it self has multiple sub-genres. Some of the best guitar playing I van heard has come from doom metal. It can still be heavy, powerful and kick your ass with out relying on speed. The genres main pioneers are the all-mighty Black Sabbath. They laid down the template for not only metal but all of doom metal that followed.
One of the 8 major metal subgenres, and yet the most successful album in doom history is Electric Wizard's Dopethrone, which has never even gotten anywhere near gold. Understandable for black metal which should never be commercialized and death metal since it's so out there, but there's literally nothing's stopping doom metal from being popular.
"Depressing? " Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Garbage, Korn, they were all depressing too. Admit it: trad and epic doom especially should be popular, but aren't because doom's too slow.
Dopethrone by Electric Wizard. Need I say more? - Sop
Earliest subgenre of heavy metal is mostly unknown to everyone even die-hard metalheads. Only my dying bride, paradise lost, katatonia etc. Get some popularity. Pentagram, saint vitus, candlemass, withfinder genereal are from 80's but unknown in 80, s metal scene. If there was no wickipaedia, I didn't know that this genre exists.
Extreme Christian metal is my favorite!
Bands like Theocracy and Darkwater are epic. They mix metal with a good message. Unless you're an atheist, in which case it's probably one of the most retarted genres ever. Haha
I'm personally agnostic and I don't think all atheists or people that have separate beliefs from Christianity would consider it stupid, to me good music is good music no matter what genre
Nah, black metal is the easiest subgenre to gain popularity from, nowadays. - IronSabbathPriest
I don't think Black Metal is that much of underrated. - zxm
I thought Black Metal doesn't want to be popular - NjakDjak
The most extreme subgenre sould not be popular.
This is what I like about black metal
With Celldweller and Blue Stahli it is the best sub-genre!
Some industrial metal is some of the heaviest metal I've ever heard.
As much as I love this genre, I will agree that it's overrated. But it was only overrated in the 90s.
No this is overrated because NIN and Marylin Manson are overrated and are not metal at all - christangrantV 1 Comment
Not really underrated. - Metal_Treasure
It really depends on how you look at while its probally true that Groove Metal isn't Underrated it also isn't overrated so basically it deserves the praise it and ithis is coming from a huge Groove Metal fan - christangrant
What? Can't be more overrated something than this poser garbage, which is not even metal...
Actually this is Overrated - christangrant
This is far from underrated.
NU METAL is dead since 2006? MAYBE?V 1 Comment
Very very underrated, I must say that, It's such a distinguished metal sub genre...Still underrated. - Ananya
The Melvins, Acid Bath, a fusion between Hardcore and Metal... Amazing.
I want it to stay underrated. I don't want people to discover gems like Isis. I want the usual metalheads to rot, listening to mainstream metal.
Most people see drone metal as boring and uncreative.
Boi go listen to The Angelic Process and tell me that Drone Metal is boring and uncreative. - djpenquin999
