    Abysmal Grief, Nefarium, Abhor (Ita), Frangar, Grotesque (Swe) and others that now don't come to my mind.

    Mostly the albums after Wraths of Time though because that one is fairly recognized already.

    Akercocke.

    Gorod sort of, but more like they deserve more popularity - nearly everyone that listens to them seems to dig it.

    Ultra Beatdown. Shit was so ultra.


    Edit: Actually, Metallica deserve more credit for Load/Reload, pre-TJR In Flames is sadly overlooked, the first two DF albums were damn good, and...actually, Lamb of God are pretty shit tbh.

    Pretty sure it was. I just enjoy defending indefensible positions just to be a dick.

    The overrated will always be overrated and the underrated will always be underrated.

    It's much easier to call the overrated bands IMO. People will always consider a lot of music underrated just due to niche individual taste, but pointing out wildly popular bands that don't deserve to be there is significantly easier IMO.

    Dragonforce are the most creative and innovative metal band in the history of music, with BRILLIANT songwriting and not an unnecessary note in sight.

    Opeth. *ducks*

    Seriously though, it is almost unheard of for bands to exist for 20 or more years, and write 9 albums without having made a bad album, or something that is so run of the mill that no one gives a shit about. Opeth has never done this.
