Extravagant masks, outfits and makeup are an innate part of popular music.

For instance, there are the top hats and eyeball heads of The Residents, the Michael Myers-esque disguise of Buckethead and the intergalactic face paint of KISS. Likewise, there are the complex costumes of Slipknot, GWAR, In This Moment, Mushroomhead and Lordi, to name a few.

Of course, each of these artists is widely recognized by fans of rock and metal. What about the numerous lesser-known (and relatively recent) acts who also get dressed up to deliver amazing music?

Enter the 10 bands on this list, all of whom deserve more attention and success for matching their kickass tunes with kickass outfits.
