    We all know that there are thousands of underrated bands out there, but I want to know what your favorite underrated band is. You can name more than one, though, if you want to.

    My favorite underrated band would most-definitely have to be 30 Seconds To Mars. From the minute I heard their first single, "Capricorn," I was hooked. The sound is very sonic and atmospheric. They're not like any other band out there right now. You can check out their web site here.

    The songs I'd recommend are "Capricorn," "Fallen," "Oblivion," "Edge Of The Earth," "Buddha For Mary," and "End Of The Beginning." They'll be releasing their sophomore album next fall, after Jared finishes with his next movie.

    Yeah, I was gonna say Spineshank too. Great band. The lead singer has incredible control on his voice and the lyrics are the best I've heard in a LONG time. Plus, at any moment in the song, everything down to the drums, rhythm, vocals, etc. in the song match the tone of the lyrics perfectly. Good stuff, here. ^_^

    Dream Theater, of course, but I'll talk to you about another one :)

    Probably the most underrated band with a sound that is very close to many mainstream rock is Dredg. Amazing band. They mix punk/emo stylings with Tool-esque prog metal moments, sections reminiscent of their jazz background, thrash metal, and mellow parts. You need to check them out. My favourites of theirs are 'Of The Room', 'Lechium', 'Yatahaze', 'Penguins in the Desert', and 'Sanzen'.

    They have two albums out: "Leitmotif" and "El Cielo".

    Well, there's a lot of bands I like that are underrated, but there's one I'm really into. I don't know if they're considered underrated or not, but nonetheless :lol:.

    Living in Question is a band from Hawaii and they haven't made any play in the mainland yet :p. I think they're going to begin touring in the mainland with Authority Zero soon and they sound amazing live. Their album out now is not sold anywhere but Hawaii :)P) but their music has been featured in shows like The Real World and Road Rules: South Pacific. Crap-shows, I know, but only two (rock) bands from Hawaii have made it anywhere close to mainland notice, that's Living in Question and Pepper. Pepper, you might know if you're a skater. Pepper were on the Vans Warped Tour (I think of 2003) and they've got a lot of attention then. But anyways, Living in Question's album is in bad quality and the sound is all right, but I saw this band open for Evanescence when they came here and they are absolutely amazing live.

    Hopefully the mainland gets a taste of LiQ :lol:. You can listen to some demo tracks and a few seconds of each track of their debut CD on their website livinginquestion.com. Yes, I do have their CD, and it was very hard to track down because Hawaii people just love this band :lol:. I could illigally send you a sample if you wish :chemist:. Only one, though.

    If you wanna' check out Pepper (whom I only care for a bit), you can check their website here.

    Finch and Allister.
     
  11. Mew. For some reason, not a lot of people have heard of them. They're Scandinavian, FYI.

    Pretty much every band I listen to :p . No good music at all (other then LP, Evanescence and sometimes a bit of other stuff...) is played here. Not many people have even heard of the bands.

    Coheed and Cambria - Different from everything else I have heard. Claudio, the lead singer, has an incredible voice.
    Dredg is incredible as someone else already mentioned. I thought people already knew about them.
