Best Lesser Known Alternative Metal Bands
They're actually a pretty successful band, but they deserve so much more respect for their songwriting and talent. Best albums are Koi No Yokan, White Pony, Around the Fur, Diamond Eyes, Adreneline and Saturday Night Wrist (yep, I just named all of them. They're that good)! So PLEASE check them out and share your support for this amazing, underrated band. They're INCREDIBLE!
I like Sevendust but Deftones had done a lot more to have deserved their success. They are so underrated and are usually overtaken by rip-offs Linkin Park. Listen to Bored, My Own Summer, Change, Back to School, Hexagram, Rocket Skates and Tempest.
Oh and I forgot to mention there self-titled album is also brilliant!
Chino's voice is the best thing about this band for me.
Not as heavy as Slipknot, but Corey's voice is amazing and Stone Sour are the perfect mixture between metal and soft rock
Deftones and Sevendust are not better than Stone Sour, they are only higher because they are better known.
How is this three. Corvid Blue.
The band was initially formed by Vince Hornsby (bassist) and Morgan Rose (drummer) under the name Snake Nation. John Connolly (guitarist) and Lajon Witherspoon (lead vocalist) would later join along with Clint Lowery (guitarist) and they would be renamed Rumblefish. After finding out the name was taken, they changed their name to Crawlspace, releasing the song "My Ruin" to the Mortal Kombat soundtrack called "More Kombat". The name Crawlspace belonged to yet another band, and they settled on the name Sevendust after an insecticide brand called "Sevin Dust". ...read more.
My favourite band of all-time. Amazing songs that I am more than stunned not to see on more top ten lists. Songs like "Black", "Waffle", "Live Again", "Broken Down", "Ugly", "Inside", "Hope", "Better Place", "Till Death", "Decay" and "Murder Bar" should elevate them to the top of anyone's list (if they'd just go ahead and give them a listen already, instead of listening to the generic garbage featured on rock radio these days).
These guys are awesome. Listen to songs like Enemy or Feed and you'll see just how incredible their music is.
Currently active members include Anders Fridén (vocalist), Björn Gelotte (guitarist, formerly drummer), Niclas Engelin (guitarist), and Peter Iwers (bassist). Currently, they are without a drummer; their most recent one was Daniel Svensson.
In Flames is one of the bands who pioneered the melodic death metal scene in Gothenburg, alongside Dark Tranquility and At the Gates. In Flames has inspired many other melodic death metal bands such as As I Lay Dying and Omnium Gatherum. ...read more.
In Flames started as a melodeath band but they later reached more of an alternative sound. It's not bad though. Listen to Cloud Connected or Delight and Angers. Some very awesome work there.
Love the song Sandpaper with M. Shadows. I never considered Stone Sour a lesser known band
Best Alt metal band of modern age.
The odd dudes with a dose of experimental, which may sound odd to some - yet, give "Voliton" a try if you're just looking for solid music, and soon you'll be pretty much addicted. (When "Yellow Teeth" and "Plato's Tripartite" start playing, you'll know what I mean.)
If Deftones counts as alt metal Chevelle does too. They draw influences from Helmet and Tool. Listen to "Under the Knife" "A New Momentum" and "Untill you're Reformed" they also have a very bad habit of making there best songs bonus tracks.
Amazing band, but not alternative metal. They are progressive death metal
This band is way underrated, please anyone listen to their songs, go buy their albums, follow them on social media and support them
