Underrated Bands

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
1Dark Tranquillity
The Gallery

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
2The 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
3Cave In
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
4As 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
Hardcore Pride

Don't even see this band listed here...precursor for a little band called American Nightmare
6In 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.
