Lets think about some under rated bands. I find that alot of Canadian bands are very under rated, espically thrash metal bands from the 1980s.

Why didn't bands like Razor, Exciter, Anvil & Piledriver get as huge as the "The Big 4" in USA being Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer?

Is it a location issue? Is it a hair-doo situation? Is it major label bullshit that was/is the issue?

Also, there is alot of old Canadian Death Metal bands that are tottaly overlooked. But its nice too see these days some Canadian death metal bands gaining talk/hype and record sales such as Adversarial & Begrime Exemious.

As far as I know, Exciter had their moment of glory...

Piledriver wasn't considered as a serious band... Wasn't it a subproject?

Sadist from Italy are very much underrated, I think. Voivod have a cult status but should be bigger!I could think of more cult/underrated acts like Nocturnus, Coroner...but they either haven't done anything for decades or ruined their reputation after a crap reunion album, so it's nothing shocking...As for Canadian death bands, I don't know anything outside Quebec/Montreal...(but granted I'm an underground philistine)

Piledriver is a serious band man, its just they didn't start playing live untill a few years ago, why this is im not sure.

Last time I saw Piledriver was Oct 29th 2010, they were cool enough to play a gig of mine with my band as well as Demontage, Midnight Malice & Winterfilth. What a great show it was!

There is a new Piledriver CD out soon on Sick Fuck Records, its a live recording from a show in Cochrane, Ontario on Oct 30th 2010. SFM Distro will for sure be getting copies in. I could probally trade you a copy if you are interested Gab

in my opinion, a local sludge band - fistfight is highly udnerrated. granted they havent played any shows outside the province, and are kinda slow to do shit, but iunno. i really like them.. really violent raw sludge.

I think some bands are underrated because they are not distributed widely enough. Some bands are ahead of their time. Some bands like to stay under the radar. So many reasons.

Insanity deserved more, definitely. Blood Money, Exmortis, Mutilated, RU Dead?, Martyrium + many many more... But it seems as though appreciation for these old bands is much higher than when they were still around even. Perhaps the under-rated bands are not the ignored ones of the past, but the under appreciated ones today?
eg, I think Kaamos were much better than most of the well known pioneers of Swedish Death Metal (certainly lyrically), yet they just seem to get tagged as 'old-school Swedish Death metal ala Entombed' without acknowledgement that they were anything more than that? (certainly not some boring Sunlight studio clone...)
