The world of hard rock as a whole seemed underrated in the 2000's. Only a few artists were able to make their way onto the charts, and even they weren't necessarily the cream of the crop when it comes to rock standards. Regardless of its commercial presence, there was still plenty of hard rock music still floating around in the wild.
Throughout the decade, artists would come out with new albums that provided just the right amount of heaviness to get listeners headbanging. These albums not only showed our favorite bands evolving, but also incorporating different styles into their usual sound. Even some of the old dogs emerged from the shadows and graced us with new material, putting some of the new kids to shame.
Though each of these albums had great tracks, they seemed to fall by the wayside more often than not.
Hell, even when the mass public agreed that these albums were good, the fanbase ended up being lukewarm on these releases. This is just a little taste of the albums that were left out to dry but should have exploded. Come have a listen and see what you've been missing all these years.
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
