    Every Time I Die and Disturbed are quite underrated.

    On the other hand, there's Tool who are revered as demi-gods.

    Disturbed are one of the worst live bands I have ever seen.

    Every Time I Die are brilliant.

    Bring Me The Horizon are seriously underrated. People judge them based on their first album and the way they looked at the time, and don't realise that their last two albums (TIAH and Sempiternal) are absolute masterpieces. Crossfaith and One Ok Rock are extremely underrated, probably because they're from Japan. They're really gaining traction recently though. Bleed From Within and The Color Morale are also very underrated.

    Bullet for my valentine are overrated as ****, as are Escape the Fate.

    Really? I've seen some livers on youtube and they don't seem so bad.

    Very true. Same with Whitechapel. Some of their songs are just gold.

    Temper temper was ****ing hideous. Disgraceful.

    I watched them at Download in 2011 and I don't know if it was just a bad day for them but it was just so dull.

    I agree that Sempiternal is just incredible. I don't know many bands that have improved so much throughout their career.

    I wouldn't say BMTH are underrated because they do have a hell of a fanbase behind them, but I say they are up there in terms of bands that receive flak that they shouldn't. I am in complete agreement that Count Your Blessings was utter tripe, I cannot stand that album. Everything they've come out with since has been fantastic though.

    As for who I think are overrated, I despise Trapped Under Ice. The lead vocalist is, hands down, my least favourite vocalist of all time. Everything else about their music is just plain boring. It's beyond me why they're becoming so popular.
