Tastes aside, how do we define hype? Averse Sefira has respect and name recognition, but that's hardly the same thing. Take a look at a highly commercialized metal product like Behemoth or the empty style-metal released by Southern Lord, and it becomes clear that AS (and many bands like them) are not really hyped by definition. Some bands attract a dedicated and vocal fanbase, but it seems like these fans stick with the bands throughout their careers. That isn't hype, it's loyalty.
