This faroese band is only known in the Faroe Islands themselves and then Germany as well - really needs to be discovered by other parts of the world. A very good band in my opinion - and no, not just because it's faroese.

Right I'll say this once, if you're not going to post a video of an "underground" band and you just want to criticise what people are posting, you'll be gagged. I've removed the posts which were off topic, anyone caught going off topic will end up with a 1month gag.

Hey, let's not let this die due to some trolling or whatever :)

Band: Blindside

Genre: Not good with genres really, but alt. rock with some hard elements.

They're somewhat know in the US but I think they're a great band that needs more publicity :) They're also comming out with a new album soon :)

Cute boring love:

"All of us", rather calm but building up towards the end.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INHzkO9w_KA

"About a burning fire" Rather heavy. And I couldn't find a proper video of this that's not live so yeah, ignore the stupid video and enjoy the song :)

Name : ELUVEITIE - Inis Mona

Genre: Folk Metal

hmm the production is perfect. The screams are epic. The chanting is both hollow and piercing at the same time. The guitars are thick and crunchy and the folk elements are clean and well placed

Gb  walker

A band that some people would consider 'good and hopeful' but never actually broke through the music scene.

I don't think that's the exact meaning, but it's somewhere in that direction.

Underground bands would the ones which are less popular due to being on a much smaller label, however, they have just as good, if not better technical ability than the common well known artists. I will give you an example Gb  walker .

This is a well known Death Metal band. They're signed by Road Runner Records, which is one of the biggest Metal labels in the world.

This an underground Death Metal band, they're signed to a relatively unknown label which is Deepsend Records.

Similar bands: Uhhh...

Mostly known for playing on skins tbh, but they have got bigger recently. Its up to you whether or not you consider them underground really, as I know people who have no idea who they are and yet others think they are the best thing to happen to the world.

Trust me, it's not Death Metal, I've been listening to Death Metal for almost 6 years. I used to play in a band which did Death Metal.

Cy  forsakEN eluveitie isnt death metal :s. folk metal.

over 11 years ago

Straight from their spotify profile page: Eluveitie is a folk metal band from Switzerland. Their sound can be described as Celtic pagan folk metal with melodic death metal influences. Gave them a listen, they sound like Ayreon with a sore throat.
