|Underrated/Unknown rock/metal/core volume 1|
love it, live it, believe it
Idk how to describe these guys, Allmusic has them tagged as "industrial" (wtf) and ppl have described them as sounding like shellac, but this is basically good-ass detroit alternative/vaguely psych rock. a few members went on to form West Indian Girl (get it?) with trent reznor's future wife. "california poppy" rips
angry 90s alt-metal produced by Josh SIlver from Type O, check out "Parole" and "afraid of life"
alt-rock with electronic and goth elements, formerly known as CNN until they got a cease-and-desist letter from a certain major news agency. Tim Bricheno of sisters of mercy/ all about eve plays guitar. They also formed tin star, a electronic side project. check "Monarch" and "Basta"
|4||God Lives Underwater|
Lumped in with the early 90s industrial rock boom, although their style leaned more towards electronic grunge with huuge depeche mode influences. Jeff turzo went on to produce records by Hellogoodbye and FTSK. Check out "All wrong" and the title track
|5||At The Throne of Judgment|
The Arcanum Order
Nothing much to see here, just ripping Black Dahlia Murder-influenced deathcore, check "Disincarnate by design" and "Martyrdom: Ruin of gaia"
|6||Dance Club Massacre|
Circle of Death
Blackened grindy deathcore with Attila-esque partycore lyrics, very much of it's time, but still slaps. check "Hoosh Hoosh"
Dark Side of the Spoon
now Ministry's not exactly "unknown" or whatever, but this album deserves more love
Feind Hört Mit
excellent austrian NDH band, this album cribs a bit more death metal influence than the rest of their stuff. peep "Am liebsten von hinten" and their cover of "Der mann mit dem koks"
They Said a Storm Was Coming
Trancecore perfection. check "Giants among common men"
sick-ass piano-y emo for ur ass, just check it brah
How the World Came To An End
Former black metal band goes trip hop and the results are pretty sick, great rainy day music.
The Devil You Know
If there was any justice in the world, these dudes would have been at least as popular as Filter and Gravity kills
|13||At All Cost|
It's Time To Decide
just the right mix of before and ahead of their time, these guys did the whole autotuned metalcore thing 3 years before attack attack! and mixed it with gothenburg darkest hour-style riffs and HORSE-style synth freakouts. Very advanced shit.
Strange We Should Meet Here
It's like if Radiohead was good and had 'core style screaming, they just put out a new record and it's v fresh.
In A Word
Noisy sludge metal, like a more grungy Big Black with live drums. Alex newport went on to produce for the mars volta and others.
|16||Misery Loves Co.|
Misery Loves Co,
V advanced industrial metal, started out as a more-depressed Ministry with death growls and gradually evolved towards a more deftones vibe.
