They are a Canadian band, quite successful back in the 70's & 80's. As far as I know, not a lot of people know them, which is a shame for they make awesome music.

Never heard of Seinfeld, what kind of music do they play? Assuming they use Kramers, it must be heavy!

There's a shocking lack of Devin Townsend around me, and in the people I talk to. Although saying that I've been so obsessed with him recently I've probably missed out on fifty new and great bands.

But it's a fair trade.

Black Stone Cherry

Nice hard-rock band from southern Kentucky.

You should see their live shows. One hell of a great blues jam towards the end.

Arsis, without a doubt. And In Flames are one of the best known death metal bands of all time. Maybe the people around you suck at live. My condolences.

The Honorary Title are freaking incredible. I've loved them for like 2 years, and almost nobody knows them. They've definitely grown in the last little while though.
I'm gonna have to say Say Anything. They're an incredible band with great lyrics, and a great range of musical styles. Good live show too.

In Flames, not known? In Sweden they are pretty much the most famous band in the country... Or one of them.

Hardcore Superstar, I can mention. Known in Sweden but totally unknown in the rest of the world. A bit weird to me as I find them very good. Hardrock; a mix of maybe Guns N' Roses and some speedy punk. Not as good musically as GN'R but nice melodies and an amazing singer.

I thought I was the only one that even knew their name. Most people know them as "the band that did the Scrubs theme."


As for my addition to the thread, Dispatch.

Dog Fashion Disco. I don't care what people say, they are amazing. One of the few bands that can transition genres smoothly multiple times in the same song. Metal, Jazz, Funk, Circus Metal, Piano Recital, Billy Idol style music, the list goes on. The only other bands I've ever seen do this are Polkadot Cadaver (Same singer, guitarist/keyboardist, and drummer) The Alter Boys (a fusion of Mushroomhead and DFD) and Mr. Bungle.

If you wanna check them out some good songs are:

Sweet Insanity
Fetus On The Beat (from Committed to a Bright Future)
Castaway
Leper Friend
God Crisis
Siddhis
Rapist Eyes

That should get you started.
Signature temporarily empty

Kyuss. One of the greatest bands of the 90's, and next to no one knows about them.

Quote by Alexander_BR
The Faceless is a great DM band.

Agalloch should be more well known.


I never have really listened to death metal, but a couple of my friends introduce me to it last year, and The Faceless are up there with my favorites of what I have heard so far. My first death metal show was them opening for Nile, and I was very impressed.
I simply cannot take this god-awful place anymore. Goodbye to all the good people here. The rest can fuck off.

Dispatch has to be my all time favorite band, I wish they were still together. State Radio is just alright.

Perpetual Groove and Umphrey's McGee too but they are both starting to get a little recognition.

Yeah but this is about bands which aren't well-known by many people anywhere. Your circle of friends may not know of Nightwish, but they're pretty damn big in the rest of the world.
