Dew Scented is probably the best one that has been mentioned so far but for me:
Zyklon
Battlelore.
P.S no way should 1349 or Tankard be in this list(although MOST of Tankard's are admittedly 2 fisters.)

I liked Innoscent (sic) when it came out but revisiting it a couple of years ago, yes, it was pretty shit. Dreadful band name too.

Mediocre bands thread part 2, then? (in the absence of Robit)

If you took away all the bands of ordinary competence, metal would shrink to the size of a chickpea overnight. It'd be like taking porn and cat pics off the net.

I haven't even heard most of the bands that come under the remit: you just have to look at the cover art most of the time.

Kind of but not really. I'm more interested in bands that are kind of mediocre that have relatively long careers. Bands that are not really distinguished in any way, as opposed to a band that has its own sound that is shit etc.

All this is true of course. Thank you, CR.

This is basically 70-80% of all metal bands that have kept going for more than 8 -10 years, which is gazillions of bands. Mediocrity and "ordinary competence" is the great elephant in the room of most art forms, including our subgenre of pop here. Ignoring that and getting stuck in anyway is the business of fans and the industry alike. Critics and the media are some of the biggest culprits in this regard. Well, they get recorded and put in print which makes it seem that way anyway.

I have never heard a full Benediction or Dark Funeral album. Fact!

You would probably like the first Benediction. It won't change your life or anything, but its good.

You aren't really missing anything with Dark Funeral.

In a thread that should have been called name some 3 fist bands I'm putting forward Nocturnal Rites as probably the most 3K power/HM band out there.I still enjoy listening to them fron time to time, but they're competent. Not the sort of band you imagine having many fans, but harmless enough and not shit or owt.

Post Bands you wonder why they still exist
I'm thinking groups like Dew Scented, Blackguard, and other groups who've been putting out music for ages but have only the slimmest of followings. Seeing as most of you have been in the music for decades, what are some bands you've seen that appear as openers or release music but get only a collective "meh". Keep in mind these are bands that are known but have even a weaker following than "small".

Post Re: Bands you wonder why they still exist
I started a similar thread years ago about bands who are consistently ordinary or mediocre that keep on going regardless of never coming close to mastery.

Dew Scented are a good example. Are Benediction still going?

The problem for me is that many of these ordinary bands that have been going for decades have at least 1-2 really good albums. Not classics, but solid albums nonetheless e.g Sinister Hate

Iced Earth. Middle of the road, ordinary, unchallenging as fuck.

Blood Red Throne, their albums are decent enough but quite forgettable.
Nargaroth, good fun live but the albums are a bit monotonous.

Dew-Scented are the best example so far, I think.
