Underrated Subgenres Of Heavy Metal

Doom, Sludge and Post Metal.. in my opinion are very unappreciated and unknown by the majority.
1Isis
Oceanic


Excellent Post Metal and Sludge. Isis has a very solid discog. Oceanic and Panicoption are masterpieces.
2Acid Bath
When The Kite String Pops


Classic sludge and doom. Guitar work is so underrated, just plain dirty and flawless.
3Cult of Luna
Salvation


Post Metal at its darkness.
4Candlemass
Epicus Doomicus Metallicus


Masters of Doom. Candlemass has an incredible discography and overall an amazing band. Epicus is filled with superb riffs, musicianship and heaviness.
5Neurosis
Enemy of the Sun


Beautifully brutal, Neurosis is a huge standard in Post Metal and they have all the right reasons. Check them out, if you haven't.
6Pentagram
Day of Reckoning


Edgy, intense.. pure talent and quality lyricism. I love the horror themes and intense value they put in their music.
7Count Raven
High On Infinity


A very underrated masterpiece, High On Infinity is everything you want it to be, clever musicianship, dark lyricism and powerful messages. Count Raven's High On Infinity is a must listen.
8 Fantomas
The Director's Cut


Fantomas is an excellent band to check out, ''They are a supergroup'' Mike Patton (Faith No More), Buzz Osbourne (Melvins), Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle) and Dave Lombardo (Slayer),they use different ideals and make their music so catchy and crisp. ''If you're a fan of any of those bands'' You should definitely give them a listen.
9Trouble
Psalm 9


Old school Doom just fricking rules, no questions asked. Jam this, and you will know why.
10Saint Vitus
Born Too Late


Gorgeous album with incredible use of emotion, melody and riffage by Dave Chandler. The musicianship on here is outstanding. Saint Vitus is a define Doom metal band.
11Melvins
Bullhead


Just plain old awesomeness, ''riffs, fills and slaps'' Sludge and Stoner is a wonderful combination for these guys.
12Cathedral
The Ethereal Mirror


Fantastic musicians, that put out pure riffage, they will connect you on so many levels.
13  Mouth of the Architect
Quietly


Brilliant Post Metal. It's every thing you wanted in album, it's atmospheric, dark and emotional, you will become a much stronger person, listening to it.
14My Dying Bride
Turn Loose the Swans


Energetic, dark and fulfilling every possibility, that, My Dying Bride is capable of.
15Electric Wizard
Dopethrone


One of the most heaviest, crunchiest, riffiest albums i ever graced my ears upon. Just magical musicianship and the intensity they have.
16 Sleep
Sleep's Holy Mountain


I haven't heard to much of Sleep, however i do know why Holy Mountain is such a prized possession. It contains high qualities, powerful sequences, super listenable from every track you hear.
17Big Business
Head for the Shallow


Energetic, heavy and so much power. Such a fun album to jam out too.
18Stoned Jesus
First Communion


A modern Sludge band, that is keeping it alive and well. Excellent musicianship on here. I love the distortion and the unique talents, that every member pursues.
