Overhauls, Transitions, Metamorphoses

Well, I've seen lots of lists here and I have to say, a noticeable percentage of these lists are great references for anyone interested in music, but I noticed that something new was missing.

What I'm going to do here, is to gather a lot of bands that have gone through major overhauls and transitions in their music, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEIR MUSIC IS GOOD OR NOT.

1. Ahab - Starting with The Giant, post-metal elements were added.
2. After Forever - With Floor Jansen being the catalyst here, the dutch band flourished after 1997, only to undergo another shift with the departure of Mark Jansen in 2002 and losing much of their gothic sound and adding progressive music to their symphonic charade.
3. Amoral - Death metal becomes rock.
4. Arcturus - Now everyone knows Garm-era Arcturus was more of a black metal band, don't they?
5. A Storm Of Light - Figured trendy post-metal wouldn't do justice to their talent and went more bombastic.

Top 10 Underrated Bands


While some bands tend to keep thrashing with huge crowds, some continue to make progress in the shadows. It is unfortunate that their true potential may never be recognized even by the most skilled critics and experts on Heavy Metal. However, that doesn't mean their genius master pieces will rust and fade. I decided to put up a list for people that haven't checked them out yet.

1. Wolverine
2. Riverside
3. Miseration
4. Unmoored
5. 40 Watt Sun
