The Top Ten
diary of jane
dear agony ( the whole album )
this band s awesome 1 of my favorites .. seether too - metalichell
Breaking Benjamin deserves the #1 spot for sure. Finally a good list! Seether is a great #2 and I like Three Days Grace more than Seether but TDG has a lot of fame. But Breaking Benjamin should be one of the most famous bands out there with bands like A7X and Disturbed (god I hate Disturbed). Seether is amazing too. But Breaking Benjamin has some of the best songs I've heard. So Cold, Breath, Blow Me Away, Had Enough, Home, Crawl, Lights Out. God so many.
this band is really really gd.. so great band.. just listen to breath.. sooner or later.. the diary of jane.. so cold.. GRT BAND - misho961
I wish everyone around me had as much love for this band as I do but I doubt anyone of them has even heard of them don't know any band that's more underrated then these guysV 16 Comments
I hate that people are this moronic towards Seether. I've been to a lot of concerts and I've never seen one that was so amazing as the one Seether threw in the Hard Club in Oporto ( and I go to Rock and Rio every year ). All the guys on those magazines that make these top 100's of anything concerning best vocalists, best alternative, grunge or metal bands should eat a turd for every time they leave Seether out ( and far from the top too, mind you ). Don't even bother me with that " Taste can't be discussed, just embraced " kinda crap. Give the recognition to the ones who deserve it. Really, see the heavy metal vocalists top 100 by hit parader. It's so dumb, it's not even funny. I'll go buy a hat and eat it if anyone thinks Jon Bon Jovi sings even"heavy metalish", and I don't even like hats. And yet, he's right there position 30. After seeing that, I can now safely say that don't give a flying about anything that magazines does anymore, or anyone that remotely ...more
OH GOD YESSSSS! I really needed to see these guys on top of this list. They are so underrated it's not even funny. Their best songs are: Truth, Driven Under, Remedy, Fine Again, Fallen, and Fade Away. It's only the smart thing to do to vote for these guys. But in all honesty... EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE BANDS ARE GREAT! - fireinside96
Seether and breaking Benjamin needs to stay at the top. Song like: Eyes of the Devil, Diseased, and Fine Again. by the way Three Days Grace isn't underrated.
Seether are awesome. Every song is unique! The lyrics are amazing and every song has a story behind it. Definitely one of my favourite bands and Shaun's voice is great!V 7 Comments
Men Without Armies is a guitar driven, 3 human metal band based in Nashville, TN. Brennan Dylan is the band's songwriter and guitarist. The kid totally rips a whole in the sky with his axe. MWA which was the group's first release (2014) received a lot of play & still is on some internet as well as terrestrial radio stations. The band has just finished recording Strapped and Loaded and it is scheduled for release late spring 2017. I've heard some of their songs on the 365 Radio Network and man they are killer. One more thing. Men Without Armies won Metal Group of the Year at the 2016 IMEA Awards.
Most of the other bands on this list are not underrated... System of a Down is awesome, but let's be honest here, they are far from being unheard of. Arch Enemy, on the other hand, are a little known melodic death metal band that could rival bigger bands with their music if only more people listened to them - Porcupine
The only metal band in the top ten. Arch Enemy makes all these guys look like kittens. I love System of a Down and Seether, but they are NOT metal bands.
They are really great... Guitar work and drum work is truly outstanding!
The coolest Death Metal band ever! I'm no Metalhead (as a matter of fact, I'm Goth), but I LOVE Alissa White-Gluz's growls.V 1 Comment
One of the best Metal/Hard Rock/Post-Grunge BANDS IN HISTORY!
They give you true rock music, better than most of those emo screamers out there!
Never Too Late
I Hate Everything About You
Animal I Have Become
The Good Life
And they won't stop there!
51 million views on I hate everything about you? That's overrated. No its not. I can guarantee you that less than 1 million people have watched it more than 51 times because it's so damn good. Heres some other classics.
Animal I have become
Never too late
Time of dying
This Band Should Be Above These Wannabe Rockstars... Please Vote For It... My Favorite Band up till now...!
HOW ARE SLIPKNOT UNDERRATED?! I don't get how people can think that. Now sanctity they are underrated
I think they're underrated because people associate Slipknot with nu metal. And they're really not nu metal, but a lot of metalheads are missing out because they think Slipknot's nu metal.
Not underrated in the slightest. - Metal_Treasure
They should sell out at EVERY show. Come on People!
You call these bands metal? - Breaking Benjamin, Seether, Three Days Grace ... And even put them in the top 3? They are neither metal nor underrated - some got more than 10,000,000 views.
Now, here's a pure metal band and truly underrated - Primal Fear.
If you wanna hear the pure sound of heavy metal in the 21st Century - give them a listen. These guys play an updated version of traditional metal and in their sound there are no any influences like punk, grunge, rap, techno, hip hop, core, prog and so on. Pure metal! Excellent musicianship.
Songs: King For A Day, All For One, Strike, Diabolus, Blood on your hands (all released from 2005 to 2014). - Metal_Treasure
In my opinion System of a Down is equivalent to cheap trick of metal. Can be viewed as cartoonish, but when you actually listen to their songs they kick ass and get their point across
Extremely underrated band, they have so many great songs but just listen to Chop Suey! And tell me I'm wrong. They have such a unique sound, I know that they would hate me to label them so just give it a listen and decide for yourself.
Very underrated but are very talented
Actually they are very underrated, the poser kids of today only knows chop suey and B.Y.O.B, but they have more awesome songs than that 2V 1 Comment
Disturbed is pretty famous and popular now
Should be in the top 5
This band makes godly songs that you go mad to. The insane riffs, the divine drumming and of course the chorus of so many of their songs is simply madness that makes you want to die! One good listen will totally change your view of metal and make you realize what stunning songs your ears have been oblivious to because these guys are truly awesome!
For starters, chiron, a song for the hopeless, two weeks and other otherworldly tracks.
I love this band, and respect to Philip Labonte for serving our country as a member of the Marine Corps.
All That Remains is pretty popular to be honest
This is an elite metal band and criminally underrated - they are professionals and perfectionists (studio and live). Complex songs and arrangements. Godly singer. Play several subgenres: from thrashy speed metal to prog metal and symphonic metal. Also developed their own style and sound, which can't be placed in any metal subgenre.
Songs: Wheel Of Time, And Then There Was Silence, Time What Is Time, Majesty, The Bard's song, Sacred Worlds, Nightfall. - Metal_Treasure
I consider myself quite familiar w/ heavy metal community but just recently (after 10y of experience) I found them out thanks to comment on youtube. Great band, interesting music which really suit my tastes and its very sad that I found them so late and (more importantly) ACCIDENTIALY. They deserve to be well known... but maybe its just me who never heard of them before...
Their German vocals and the controversy around their acts (which linked with some ridiculous rumours like being Nazis) prevented Rammstein to gain more positive attention although their success is huge. Great library of songs (with a superb variety) and powerful live performances.
Their songs are both heavy and beautiful, their music videos are amazing, and their live performances are insane! It's a shame that more people don't know about them.
This band is really underatted with solid live performance that may burn you face.literally.and great songs like Mein teil and Amerika and Sonne to name a few - Toucan
Great Band! Where did they go?
War of Gods is Really cool. Cool Viking Metal. Lk them as well as Children of Bodom
listen to CRY OF THE BLACKBIRDS (recomanded)
great melodic death metal.. - misho961
Also take a listen to Across the Rainbow Bridge from 3.00 onwards
sick power metal band listen to songs like the hunter
These guys are awesome - traditional/ heavy metal, thrash and power metal. Epic stuff. - Metal_Treasure
this band os really gd.. they made masterpeices like black water park (12 mins) deliverance (13 mins) windowpane (check itt! ) pure metal great band - misho961
Check out the list - Top 10 Into Eternity Songs (Stu Block Era) - Metal_Treasure
Of course they are underrated - how many of you have heard of them?
And how many heard of their great songs like: My Last Sunrise, Crimson King, Heaven Denies, Tear Down The Wall, Path Of Glory, Fiddler On The Green (all released after 2000). - Metal_Treasure
Breaking Benjamin? Seether? Amon Amarth? Why they underrated? They have a very high popularity. Kalmah is not so underrated too really.. But more than BB
Breaking benjamin is not metal... Post-hardcore. Three days grace is not underrated. Other than that, pretty good.
VERY UNDERRATED! these guys are one of the best musicians ever. and besides Seether?! like really? is this a joke?!
Great musicians It a shame that they don't get the exposure which they deserve - MIFZAL
Actually most of bands above ain, t underrated.. But this band is really underrated chris adler's drumming and Randy Blythe's Strong Screamo Vocals and mark Morton Heavy Guitar work and john campbell's mind blowing bass..
I didn, t thought that a band all it's Musicians would be pure talent.. Until I found Lamb Of God and dream theater (they aren, t groove metal band but they got very talented musicians like portony one of the most successful drummers ever and petrucci one of the best guitarists and very amazing soloist and john myung very amazing bassist and very talent and jordan rudess very amazing keyboardist) - nooreldeen
one of the finest gothic rock bands.. listen to within me.. stars.. closer - misho961
gothic/heavy metal band.. how you check it.. its really gd
This band is criminally underrated. This Finnish metal band used to be a death-doom metal band with albums mainly The Karelian Isthmus and Tales From A Thousand Lakes. Then they made an album called Elegy featuring their first lead vocalist Pasi Koskinen playing elements of heavy metal, prog metal and melodic death metal. Their second album with Pasi is called Tuolena which has a mixture of prog rock/metal and doom metal elements. The album after that is Am Universum which is prog rock/metal. Their last album with Pasi which is Far From The Sun and it entails of a mixture of prog metal, prog rock, hard rock and alternative metal. Then Pasi left but then a legendary Finnish singer called Tomi Joutsem joined the band and changed them as a whole. The album Eclipse is a mixture of prog metal, melodic heavy metal and folk metal also featuring death growls (just a masterpiece and must listen to before you die).The lyrics on this album is based on a poem from Kalevala. They made another ...more
I think Fozzy is the most underrated band of all time... Give me a break
one of the best german bands and 1 of the best doom metal bands ever - misho961
In my opinion, they are criminally underrated.
Great Post Hardcore/Melodic Hardcore band. Look at their facebook page, they could do with more fans. - lukew95
great metalcore band check itt - misho961
Really really underrated these guys... Lots of talent and lots of excelent songs
They've received far more attention in Europe than they ever did in their home country. They are one of the best power metal acts out there.
IMO the best modern power metal band. Their songs are very catchy and memorable! - petrucci75hammet
Should get way more credit than they get - sextysex
Get this band off the list, they're quite famous an popular
Great band, very underrated.
Awesome metal band, 4 of a kind made me laugh. Comedy metal band
There are so many good songs on these albums:
nostradaus and redeemer of souls - ShahryRKnoT
They aren't metal though - Metal_Treasure
