As indicated above, there's at least one person who cares, which is all that counts. It doesn't matter if a type of music is popular to the masses, people can still listen to it. Hell, pretty sure this counts for all but the biggest metal acts anyway.

Art is swell that way.

I guess so. Probably being too harsh lol. But to be fair, no one really talks about rap metal nowadays, maybe except Rage Against The Machine.

Do you have any recommendations for me, Seno72? Preferably if you know any smaller bands that need the love and attention!

I pretty much listen to progressive metal mainly. Some others I listen to sometimes are Between the Buried And Me (tech death), Soen, Storm Corrosion, Barren Earth, Bloodbath (death metal), Scale The Summit. Most of these aren't any underground bands though.
