Top Ten Most Overrated Metal Bands

Thumbs up: 0
Ten heavy metal holy cows that have contributed much less to metal than their popularity would suggest.

Created by: Ganondox | 18.04.2018

1. Ghost - Ripping Off Black Metal Aesthetics + Pop = Profit
2. Testament - Sorry, but Anthrax is the band which deserves the fourth spot in the big four
3. Cannibal Corpse - The point at which shock value in death metal became more important than actual music
4. Avenged Sevenfold - Talent wasted on a spastic Metallica wannabe
5. Mötley Crüe - The worst band in the worst subgenre of metal, they are known for hedonism rather than talent
6. Trivium - They couldn't decide if they were metalcore or some other subgenre, so they decided to not be anything
7. Amon Amarth - A mediocre melodeath band whose success is based on riding the oldest gimmick in metal
8. Manowar - The warriors of true metal are ironically barely metal themselves
9. Lamb of God - By finding the ideal combination of European and American influence they please without doing anything new
10. Metallica - This watered down thrash metal band is the epitome of lowest common denominator metal

Lacrimosa for god sake! They have a good Gimmick and amazing album covers. Musically they are boring as heaven and predictable as a Trump Speech. The vocals are unbearable and only their orchestra's (which are invited) play something decent.

I would really want to know why people used to love them so much.
