Top Ten Most Overrated Metal Bands

Ten heavy metal holy cows that have contributed much less to metal than their popularity would suggest.

1. Ghost - Ripping Off Black Metal Aesthetics + Pop = Profit
2. Testament - Sorry, but Anthrax is the band which deserves the fourth spot in the big four
3. Cannibal Corpse - The point at which shock value in death metal became more important than actual music
4. Avenged Sevenfold - Talent wasted on a spastic Metallica wannabe
5. Mötley Crüe - The worst band in the worst subgenre of metal, they are known for hedonism rather than talent

Thumbs up: +1
Best Album From Each Year

Unfinished as I still have to catch up on more recent years. Also all of the places on the list are of course subject to change as I discover more music from each year.

My taste is very much centred around the power of the riff. That means most of the albums on this list are thrash, death, heavy, black, or some offshoot of those genres.

1. After The Burial - Dig Deep
2. Behemoth - The Satanist
3. Carcass - Surgical Steel
4. Cattle Decapitation - Monolith Of Inhumanity
5. Fleshgod Apocalypse - Agony
