I don't know if anyone else has been having problems with blogger, but it took me about eight attempts to get this to post.

1-One of the worst hard rock or metal albums I have ever heard was Morbid Angel. Simply unlistenable.

2-One of the most underrated hard rock/metal musicians of all time is VIto Bratta of Great White.

3-One of the most underrated hard rock/metal vocalists of all time is Sebastian Bach.

First off Dave, Vito Bratta doesn't play for Great White, he used to play for White Lion. He never played for Great White!
But, he is good.

1) Pantera "any album after Cowboys From Hell". (just to much screaming and not enough SINGING.
Actually, never really liked them at all. It just got a lot worse after Cowboys from hell.

2)Bruce Kulick, he was the guitarist for KISS. Arguably the best(in my opinion). He just was always overlooked compared to other guys that were in KISS.

3)Freddy Curci, he was the vocalist for bands like, Sheriff, Alias, and solo stuff. He has one of the best(if not the best) voices that I've ever heard.

Most under-rated singer has to be Stephen Pearcey-great, great rock voice.

1. Worst Hard Rock / Heavy Metal Album: The Elder - KISS While KISS as a band could be classified as Heavy Metal this album could only be classified as trash.

2. Underrated Musician: I'd say Dave "The Snake" Sabo from Skid Row. I don't think that he ever received the accolades that he should have from his great days with the old Bach era version of Skid Row. But then again, since then he's gotten stale, so perhaps that is why...

3. Underrated Vocalist: I'm going to say Blackie Lawless from WASP. The music might be basic rock n roll, but his vocal range from passionate emotional energy in ballads to powerful in the rockin tunes. I guess the vocals might be overshadowed by the theatrics.

1-I have to go with Rockdog, the Elder is bad. Helloween's Chameleon comes to mind as well.

2-Ronnie Le tekro of TNT

3-John Bush os Armored Saint and Anthrax

1. I'm sure I could find others but the new Manowar, GODS OF WAR, really sticks out as one of the worst.

2. Most underrated musician.....I'd have to agree on Bruce Kulick.

3. Most underrated singer.....Tony Martin.

Anything by Vixen or Trixter.


2-One of the most underrated hard rock/metal musicians of all time is

Man....one is not enough. There are so many. After seeing him play live in February and hearing Real to Reel, I would have to say Frank Hannon from Tesla. Not exactly a household name, but he should be.

3-One of the most underrated hard rock/metal vocalists of all time is:

Once again, I have to say Jorn Lande. No one in the U.S. really knows him yet. Jeff Scott Soto would have to be a close second.

1. One of the worst albums I heard has to be St. Anger. That was an awful experience, but I would agree with Axe Man about Pantera's post-Cowboys output.

2. Underrated musician...Nuno Bettencourt. His playing was always incredible but he will be remembered for More Than Words.

3. Underrated vocalist...I gotta go with Ray Gillen. Classic voice that never really got his due.

I must agree with Rob on Frankie Hannon--extemely underappreciated--and Ray on, well... Ray GIllen!

I was thinking White Lion, but I had Great White on the brain because I had just watched my taped Metal Mania and they showed early GW doing "Substitute." Thanks, Axe.

1 - I remember Kings X as being pretty bad but it was a long time ago. PS I think Pantera's Vulgar Display of Power was still good but they definitely lost it from Beyond Driven.

2. LSD

3. Oderous Urungus.

Really bad album- Rammstein's "Sehnsucht". Other than Du Hast, I thought the rest of it sucked.

Underrated musician- I'm gonna go back several years and say Frank Marino. The man was, and still is, a great guitar player.

Underrated singer- I love Sebastian Bach, and don't think he has gotten enough credit for how good he is, but another guy who I think has gotten even less credit is Dave Draiman of Disturbed. The guy just flat out kicks ass, as far as I'm concerned.

There are quite a few metal bands that have sucked over the years. Some stand out more than others, of course. Concert-wise I think the worst performance I ever saw was The Screaming Trees. What a load of crap they were.

Underrated? Armored Saint comes to mind. They are not a fave or anything, but they did kick ass up to a point. (The stage costumes really sucked though.)

Underrated vocalist: David Lee Roth comes to mind. I honestly don't think that he gets enough credit for his vocal work. Sure, he gets a lot of credit and exposure as a front man, but not so much for his vocals. Another is Alice Cooper. The man can sing a ballad when he needs to and doesn't sound like he's overstretching for the high notes a la Paul Stanley.
