Top 10 Most Underrated Metal Bands of the 2000sBoredJeff02 While the 2000s had a lot of popular Metal bands like: Slipknot, Korn, Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold and etc. it also had a few underrated bands that got unnoticed. For this list I`m counting down those metal bands. If I forgot any, eh just add them.
The Top Ten
I am addicted to Tobias Sammet voice. I agree they need more attention - this is a very good band, especially for beginners, because their songs aren't very heavy. - Metal_Treasure
Yes, stellar musicianship and perfectionism, especially after 2000. Most of their albums were professionally rated 9.5/10 (even those before 2000s). Now count how underrated they are and how unknown. As a reviewer wrote "Blind Guardian possess a track record and back catalogue of classic staples that perhaps only Iron Maiden can match." - Metal_Treasure
Thank God most of the bands on this list are really metal bands and really underrated. I mean, the popular metal bands mentioned in the list description aren't metal according to Encyclopaedia Metallum - Slipknot, Korn, Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold.
I even made a list "Top 10 Bands that Aren't Metal According to Encyclopaedia Metallum". - Metal_Treasure
They are shamefully underrated - crystal clear metal sound, enjoyable songs that are fast and melodic, remarkable twin lead guitars (solos), a singer with a 4 octave vocal range, great drummer(s), etc.
Songs - Strike, All For One, King For A Day, Riding the Eagle, Diabolus, Road to Asylum, Six Times Dead. - Metal_Treasure
A relatively new Canadian band with positive reviews. Formed in 2006, they play melodic speed metal and heavy metal. I like the guitar work very much. The singer voice is unusual as it is really very high and boy-ish.
Songs - Get Fisted, Hour to Live, Head of the Pack
For more info and songs with samples, go to the list "Top 10 Skull Fist Songs". - Metal_Treasure
Do you mean the Spanish band with this name or something else? (because there are several bands with this name). - Metal_Treasure
I'm referring to the American Rock band Fuel that's known for the song Hemorrhage In My Hands. - BoredJeff02
Thanks for clarifying this BoredJeff02. However, this band isn't metal and the song Hemorrhage In My Hands is nowhere near metal in general. Details: guitars are punk guitars, vocal style is more like hard rock, melody isn't metal. - Metal_Treasure
This band was quite underrated in the 2000's in fact this band still is. - BoredJeff02
Not generally known by the time the 2000's decade came around this metal band was great but only few people knew about it at the time. - BoredJeff02
They are more unnoticed than underrated because they are a new thrash band - their debut album came out in 2013 when band members were still teens. If you like thrash, you are gonna like them.
Videos to start with: Kill (Those Who Oppose Me), Trash All Over You.
For more, go to my list: "Top 10 Lost Society Songs". - Metal_Treasure
Umm, I think they aren't a metal band. Encyclopaedia Metallum think the same and this band have no page on their site. - Metal_TreasureV 1 Comment
Besides their popular song "It's Been A While" this band is quite underrated and became underrated by the mid-later 2000's. - BoredJeff02
Similarly to Smile Empty Soul, it's not exactly a metal band. Don't take me wrong - I know that the most difficult thing is to tell the difference between metal music and loud/heavy music that isn't metal.
The song "It's Been A While" isn't metal and the reason isn't that it's a mellow song - there are many mellow metal songs but this one isn't from the metal family. - Metal_Treasure
No, they aren't underrated, come on. They were underrated in the 90s but they already got critical acclaim and fans recognition. - Metal_Treasure
I don't think Opeth is that much of underrated - zxm
