Top Ten Most Underrated Progressive Rock/Metal BandsIronSabbathPriest
The Top Ten
Opeth and Yes (while both amazing bands) are far from underrated. Gentle Giant is one of the best, albeit unknown prog bands. - Brobusky
Believe it or not, I heard of Gentle Giant before. You can say that PROG in General is underrated. - Pony
Very awesome and unknown, they deserve way more attention. - IronSabbathPriest
The finest of the genre. Unique, innovative. Try Octopus for a true feel for their style. Three Friends works too.V 3 Comments
I know Porcupine Tree are highly regarded within Prog circles, but to the average music listener, Porcupine Tree is just another weird obscurity. What a pity, because I honestly feel that they can hold their own against ANY classic band, prog or otherwise. Steven Wilson is Britain's finest songwriter; capable of writing music that is accessible yet extremely intricate and complex (no small feat! ). His growing success will I hope lead to mainstream media recognition.
I couldn't agree more, definitely had to be porcupine tree. These guys leave more talent sitting around in a dirty sock than all the rest of today's music put together. - Beatlesboy9
Musically and lyrically, PT are amazing. Steven Wilson is a genius, and one of the best songwriters in prog. Along with Mikael Akerfeldt. - IronSabbathPriest
(I keep on voting for the wrong thing it's so annoying. I actually voted for Ne Obliviscaris)
I really like Porcupine Tree's work, but still, I don't think their really underrated. - Metalfan2112
If you hear the songs by Ne OBliviscaris, you will regret why you never heard them before. The violin solos are so beautiful and moving, that it transports you to some another dimension. Try 'Forget Not'. Hell, listen to every album they've ever recorded and you will never hear music so beautiful. Totally underrated band.
I like them very much. I would say they are more unnoticed than underrated because they are a new band. They just need more attention. - Metal_Treasure
I've discovered this band recently, and it is some of the best prog metal I've ever heard! Listen to Back To The Times of Splendor (album). - IronSabbathPriest
If you listen the sleep of restless hours youll never stop listening to it. underrated band I wish people knew about it. the person who made this list got good taste in music.
The level of complexity and meaningless in their music is unmatchable. A truly underrated band.
Just a great band.
Pawn. Hearts. enough said
One of my all time favourite bands. They are able to mix death metal vocals with prog metal music so well. - IronSabbathPriest
They are actually really popular.
Awesome band, have a lot of great stuff. - IronSabbathPriest
Everyone knows this group for '' Awaken The Guardian '', but all their albums are excellent!
Their self title may be one of the single best prog albums I've ever heard, highly recommended!
Whoever added this is thick as a brick, they're not underrated. I guess. I now look at how stupid I was when I made this list. - IronSabbathPriest
They may be underrated in the world of normal music, but in the world of Progressive rock they are not - Rushfan2112
In The Court of The Crimson King is often considered the first progressive rock album. This is a band that is willing to experiment, and almost aways succeeds. - IronSabbathPriest
They helped create progressive rock. - IronSabbathPriest
Yep, a very good band. - Metal_Treasure
Love this band.
Under the Pillow, the Depth of Self Delusion, Second Life Syndrome, #Addicted, We Got Used to Us. - IronSabbathPriest
A progressive rock supergroup. Very good. - IronSabbathPriest
Lemmy was in this band? So what? The band started with Lemmy as member. Before Hawkwind he was in Sam Gopal and his first group was the Rocking vickers.
Can't you believe that Lemmy was in this band? - Pony
Camel deserves to be higher. They released such classics like Mirage and Moonmadness, 2 of the highest-rated progressive rock albums ever.
