What Artists do you Find Underrated?
« on: April 24, 2014, 01:30:36 pm »
Pretty self explanatory...
IMO Submersed is a phenomenal band that never got too much recognition. I know. Some of you may have noticed I mentioned this band before... but... I don't care. They were so unnoticed, they completely disappeared some years ago, and I have a feeling lack of support was a cause. But their music is still with us... such a shame they will make no more...
Here is my personal fave of the band, "In Due Time":  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjYJFtdRiOA
So what is in your opinion some artists that never got enough attention? I am curious!
(Also 100th post. Neat!)

NIIC. I'm shocked he doesn't have a huge following.

Progressive Rock/Album-Oriented Rock band Asia. They were the band that wrote 'Heat of the Moment' and 'Only Time Will Tell'. After these two smash hits they disappeared. But they're still putting out albums, in fact their latest album came out last month. The rest of their music is extremely underrated. Whenever I ask people if they're heard of Asia I have to remind them about 'Heat of the Moment' and 'Only Time Will Tell' so they know what I'm talking about.

Glam Metal band Gorky Park. This Russian band also disappeared after a few smash hits. Actually, take that back, they disappeared after the Moscow Music Peace Festival in the late 80's. Their first two albums (Gorky Park and Moscow Calling) are FANTASTIC. However, their next two albums are kinda crappy (or maybe I can listen to them; maybe they'll grow on me).
I've left (again), probably for good but idk. If you wanna talk to me outside the forum, feel free to email me. Just tell me who you are in the email pls

Just so you know, Submersed used to have a quite a big following and made it quite big on Radio for a while.
To bad they disbanded in 2008.
But the members pretty much all went on to really good bands! ^^

Secondhand Serenade- most people know the song Fall For You, but that's just about it. :/
The Script is pretty popular, but a LOT of their songs are underrated. Hardly anyone knows the songs The End Where I Begin or Rusty Halo, instead people only know Breakeven and Hall of Fame.
The Birthday Massacre deserves more fame as well imo.

I was going to make an Underground thread but I will just post here because I feel this is better. ^_^

Polaris - [Metalcore]

This band just takes what we know as Metalcore and blends other styles to give it their own flavour! I'd recommend giving them a listen, Plus their EP Dichotomy is Free on Bandcamp!
________________________________________

Perception - [Metalcore]

Same thing as above. It almost seems as they mix hardcore influences as well as other genres. EP is also free on Bandcamp!

Mark Crilley. He is amazing and I have Mastering Manga 2.  I suggest you buy his comics. They are great.
Still confused? Then perhaps this will enlighten you!

A one man band called the miracle of sound, Gavin makes wonderful songs and sells them cheap. Sure most of songs are about gaming but his original ones like Amneisa are so well written.

Aviators - An independent youtube channel. Yes OK, some of there stuff is brony related but trust me, you hardly notice it.

Street Dogs - A punk band for the modern day. And no, they aren't anything like Green Day.

Stroke 9 - Alternative Rock group. A lot of there stuff is really good.
