Top 10 Most Underrated Metal Bands of the 2000sWhile 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
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
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
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
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.
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
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.
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.
This one is self explanatory.
Umm, I think they aren't a metal band. Encyclopaedia Metallum think the same and this band have no page on their site. - Metal_Treasure
Besides their popular song "It's Been A While" this band is quite underrated and became underrated by the mid-later 2000's.
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
Metal band from Tennessee. Its members are Alexis Brown (vocalist), Ian Shuirr (drummer), Kris Hawkins (guitarist), Nathan Palmer (guitarist), and Jason White (bassist). Super underrated. Never heard of this band myself until some random guy in my college class mentioned it to me.
