I've seen a lot of overrated lists and very few Underrated lists, so I figured I'd make one of the latter. I haven't thought it through too much, and the list is made in reference to Sputnik user ratings
ok, before you flame me and yell at me for this, please tell me how only 160 people have rated The Gallery? That is blasphemy for the (in my opinion) best band to come out of the Gothernburg scene
|2||The Receiving End of Sirens|
Between the Heart and the Synapse
because BTTHATS was brilliant on so many different levels, and their followup wasn't half bad either
Planets of Old
I'd say this band is overlooked more than anything, but everything I've ever listened to by them ranges from very good to amazing, especially Beyond Hypothermia which contains easily 2 of the best metalcore songs ever written
|4||As Tall As Lions|
Into the Flood
again, this band is overlooked more than anything, and they're live show is amazing.
|5|| ||Ten Yard Fight|
Don't even see this band listed here...precursor for a little band called American Nightmare
|6||In the Arms of Providence|
Lost my voicebox in a seaside town
Not surprised that this is underrated here given the short life-span of the band, but this is one of my favorite posthardcore albums of all time. The frontman now fronts a band called the Cambiata (which is also is underrated)
|7|| ||Fly Upright Kite|
Every Breathing Moment
Amazing indie/folk band from Boston. Check out the songs on their myspace, and do yourself a favor and see them live.
|1-4 be good|
|I almost considered adding Converge to this list :-)|
By the way...if anyone wants to listen to 6, please let me know because you can't find it anywhere anymore (including online I assume), unless you live in Maine. I'd also send you 5, but I don't even know if I still have that album.
|Best band to come out of the Gothenburg Scene is At The Gates.|
2's pretty average imo
