Underrated albums from famous metal bands

The most overlooked gems only from well known metal bands, if you disagree argue like an human being.
1Annihilator
Schizo Deluxe


Annihilator gets lot of credits.... only for their first 2 albums while the majority could feature in this list. Jeff likes to experiment but guess what? Elitists are close minded and want to hear the same stuff forever. Schizo deluxe is an overlooked dark gem with lots of variations, heavy riffs and demented atmosphere
Rate 10
2Black Sabbath
Headless Cross


So much better than Mob rules, born again and never say die are sure underrated but i've never heard anybody speaking about this. I love black moon rising
Rate 8 1/2
3Fear Factory
The Industrialist


Digimortal has it's fans, transgression is fine but objectively their worst, this one is their most overlooked because of the electronic drums, but hey, it's industrial, they re allowed! Virus of faith is among rheir best
8 1/2
4Ministry
Relapse


Maybe their most hated, it's not so bad, i love their s.o.d. cover
7 1/2
5Korn
Life Is Peachy


This is pretty well known but nobody seems to fully appreciate it aside from the singkes. Sure the most experimental and dark album korn ever made. Listen to kill you and mr.rogers

6Soilwork
Figure Number Five


Any soilwork fan except me will tell you this is their worst lp. Sure they got softer with this, but in a good way, every single track is good and catchy, departure plan, cranking the siren and distortion sleep are an example
9
7In Flames
Soundtrack to Your Escape


I bet if this came out after siren charms everyone would have loved it. I admit it took time to appreciate it but the perfect use of the synths and the claustrophobic atmosphere makes this one a great work
8 1/2
8Slayer
Diabolus in Musica


I love thrash. I don't love the majority of people who loves it. Some of those "thrash lovers" are closed minded little people with god complex hating on everything that's different from their tastes and sometimes the same people complaining that bands needs variation. Slayer experimented with a groovy and nu approach, you know what? It's better than repentless and divine intervention.
8
9Pain of Salvation
Scarsick


Here we go again, nu metal influences, ON PROG! well there are many different genres in this, such as dance and punk but elitists will focus on nu metal. Absurd work by the way
9
10Five Finger Death Punch
American Capitalist


5fdp sux !!!!111.
Ok i might agree this time, but thus album is not that bad, the title track is great and some other stuff is more than listenable
7-
11Iron Maiden
The Final Frontier


Space concept and iron maiden. Need to say more? Some of their best modern tracks are here, such as the talisman, wtwwb and coming home
8 1/2
12Judas Priest
Angel of Retribution


What a comeback
8 1/2
13Deep Purple
Purpendicular


Never heard anybody talking about this, well not complex as their masterpiece but pretty damn good
8
14W.A.S.P.
Dominator


This is high rated on sputnik, ok. But nobody mention it anyway, burning man may be my second favorite wasp track ever
9
15Manowar
Fighting the World


This album hot me into manowar, maybe it's this. Though you can't deny the first 3 tracks are awesome
8+
16Scorpions
Humanity: Hour I


A more dramatic approach for the band, not appreciated by many fans
8
17Accept
Russian Roulette


Two words: AIMING HIGH
8+
18Kalmah
For The Revolution


Sure less technical than previous stuff but it gets too much hate. The guitar work is awesome, listen to towards yhe sky. Deep growls are good too and almost every song is great
8 1/2
19Arch Enemy
Burning Bridges


After many years silverwing remains their best track
8+
20Megadeth
The System Has Failed


How come this is so underrated?! Classic thrasher such as blackmail the universe and back in the day meets mellow tracks such as of mice and men. Don't forget about their best modern track: the scorpion
9+
21Metallica
Death Magnetic


More than fine comeback
7 1/2
22Anthrax
We've Come for You All


I understand this could be less accessible, too heavy for mainstream audience and to "commercial" for metalheads, listen to nobody knows anything, one of the best drummings ever
8
23Pantera
Power Metal


Many of you will think this is ridicolous, and it is but undeniably catchy
7
24Suicidal Tendencies
13


After 13 years Cyco Miko gave us this awesome funky metal lp. Apparently many s.t. fans died or changed tastes
8 1/2
25Overkill
From the Underground and Below


Darker, groovier and dirtier, a nice experiment
8
26Testament
Low


This grew on me with time
7 1/2
27Gamma Ray
Heading for Tomorrow


I can't help but die laughing anytime i see the album cover. If you ignire the cheesyness you will find some of the highest vocal range that will never be famous
8
28Iced Earth
Plagues of Babylon


Nobody seems to like poor Tim Owens
7 1/2
29Trivium
Ember to Inferno


While not among their best worÄ·s, their debut's low production made it sounds heavier
7 1/2
30Savatage
The Wake of Magellan


Savatage are a odd one, any metal lover knows them, anyone who listen to them falls in love but somehow they never reached the mainstream audience, even if they are pretty accessible. The title track is a masterpiece that many people will never hear
9 1/2
31Immolation
Harnessing Ruin


Even darker
8
32Morbid Angel
Gateways to Annihilation


Always forshadowed
33Disturbed
Believe


Less nu metal angst, more introspection and better songwriting
David's best performance
8 1/2
34Atheist
Jupiter


Give it a chance
8
35Prong
Carved Into Stone


After early 90' they disappeared from fame. This album is such an hidden gem, go to listen put myself to sleep
