If you aren't familiar with them, which you probably aren't, I recommend the band Bad Acid Trip. They are kind of grindcore with a bit of a doom-sounding influence. Sounds a lot to me like early System of a Down stuff, but faster and a bit heavier. The only album I've heard from them is Lynch the Weirdo. One of my personal favorites on that album is Zombie Nation.

If you are looking for some silly thrash metal, check out Austrian Death Machine. Started by Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying, they are a tribute to Arnold Schwarzenegger. All of their songs are either covers that have lyrical content that fit into an Arnold movie or are taken from Arnold quotes. First song I've heard from them was Get To The Choppa, but one of my favorites right now is Who Told You You Could Eat My Cookies?

Trying to find some more calm alternative rock stuff, so I'd appreciate any recommendations of that. Stuff like Cage The Elephant or Red Hot Chili Peppers. Also, ska would be appreciated too.

I heard this band ages ago and loved them. Specifically, their cover of I Turned Into A Martian, and had completely forgotten what their name was so I couldn't check out more. I know what I'm going to be dl'ing tonight~.

Also, while I appreciate the recommendations from the others in this topic so far and will check them out, I'm moreso drawn to T_Z's recommendations. Because, you know. He actually told me a bit about the bands he was shilling. Gave me more of a reason rather than just name value.

As for my recommendation? Er... I really dig Fightstar. They're a English four piece led by Charlie Simpson of the pop band Busted. But er, these guys are far from pop. They like to change it up a lot. Their first EP and album was a lot more post hardcore (See: Paint Your Target), for their second album they experimented a lot though, going from calm tracks like 99 to Deathcore (a lot more "core" than "death" though) with Deathcar. Their third album they did the same again, but with a lot more of a... I guess "Mainstream" sound? The English Way really shows that off. They also managed to high a full orchestra and choir to help them create the sound they want, the most evident of it being in War Machine. Apparently they're classed as Alt Rock, but they really do just whatever they want and it works. They're on a break at the moment, I think three of them are creating a zombie movie while Charlie attempts an indie career, but apparently they're reforming at the end of the year. They said the same last year though. So er. Yeah. Me and CanDrag dig them. You might also.

Bumpin this thread because fuck yeah music!

HIGHLY recommending Serj Tankian's new solo album, Harakiri. I like every single song on it. It's got everything from calm, sad sounding stuff (Deafening Silence) to heavy, ass-kicking stuff (Figure It Out). It's got quite a range too, seems like every song sounds different to me. Personal favorites are Ching Chime and Cornucopia.

There's even a fun old-school System of a Down reference: Part of Uneducated Democracy uses a quote from the packaging of the first System album as lyrics: "Open your eyes, open your mouths, close your hands, and make a fist."

I love this album so much. Think it's my favorite new album to come out since System of a Down was still releasing music.

Artists of various note who you should consider listening to if you haven't. Tried to steer clear of artists who I figured a decent portion of you'd already heard of, or the ones I already shill in day to day conversation (or in my promos, because really I'm a one note human being). Of course, keep in mind this entirely in my opinion, my tastes are not the same as yours, but I've tried to describe each artist's music to give people an idea of who they would or would not enjoy.

Laurel Halo - Experimental electronica, apparently this is on the fringes of what is considered avant garde in the electronica genre so perhaps not for everyone, but it always manages to be incredibly fascinating to listen to, even if at times not overly melodic. She only has one album out so far and it's excellent, so if you like electronic music, this is worth looking into.

Harry Nilsson - Infinitely clever pop musician from the 60s-70s. Masterful application of melodies and an incredible sense of humor backed by a 3 and a half octave vocal range (for reference Mariah Carey has less vocal range than him). Any of his early work through Son of Schmilsson can be called unqualified successes (except maybe The Point! which is a children's story with musical interludes, although he managed to get one of these interludes on the charts so who knows). Well known songs include "Coconut", "Without You", and "Everybody's Talkin'". He also had a song that went "You're breakin' my heart, you're tearin' me apart, so Fuck You", eat your heart out Cee Lo Green.

Richard Thompson - Admittedly I have shilled RT in the past in various places, but if there was ever a musician who deserved to be heard, it's him. Self-trained guitarist, also the best guitarist I've ever heard (look up his album More Guitar to prove it. "Can't Win" is a nine-minute song off it that absolutely dazzles). He's also gifted with a tremendous voice (see "A Love You Can't Survive" and "Guns Are the Tongues") and a tremendous knack for writing clever, dark lyrics. He got his start in the english folk-rock fusion band Fairport Convention so he's got a very European element to his sound, this can take some getting used to, but if you do, it's well worth it.

The Caretaker ~ An Empty Bliss Beyond This World - This album, by The Caretaker, is conceptually based around the idea that Alzheimer's patients are able to remember details in conjunction with music. To this idea, the album is essentially a series of loops, doused in vinyl noise, sounding like someone trying desperately hard to remember the song through a memorized smokescreen. Haunting, beautiful, soothing, also cheap. His other work is also good but even less accessible than this album which, coincidentally is regarded as his best work thus far.

Lou Reed - Alright so I've kind of shilled him before, and he's pretty well known, but god damn he's the best liar in music since Bob Dylan and not enough people know him for more than "Walk on the Wild Side" and the Velvets. New York, Street Hassle, Berlin, The Blue Mask, Coney Island Baby, and several other albums would be considered masterworks if released by someone else. Listen to them, they're more human than many humans are.

Timber Timbre - Canadian band that sounds like Nick Cave + Elvis + Remarkably soothing reverb. One of the coolest sounding vocals in music today, if you can get past the occasionally uninteresting instrumentals, you'll find one of the best Canadian contributions to music since Feist.

Gear Daddies - Country-ish music by a band from the middle of nowhere. It doesn't get much closer to the heart of rock music than this, a bunch of guys getting together and having fun making music. The music is very often sad, but the sympathy and redemption in the lyrics and singing make it all worthwhile. They've only got two studio albums but they're both great. They do tend to sound like they're copping from Tom Petty, but Tom Petty was just copping from the Byrds and they were just copping from Dylan and he copped from everyone. Like I said, as true to the heart of rock 'n' roll as you're gonna get.

Yo Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, and Chris Tile ~ The Goat Rodeo Sessions - Classical fused with country/folk music. It probably won't do anything for you unless you're already fond of at least one of those genres, but if you enjoy both of them, you'd probably enjoy this exquisitely rendered merging of them into a piece of work that seems so vibrantly alive yet historical. The musicians are all basically as good as it gets.

Dustin Wong - Dude really knows his way around a guitar. Uses pedals for loops and effects to build large washes and walls of sound. While this isn't exactly unique in and of itself, his talent makes it work. He can single-handedly replace an entire band with the help of a few pedals. Very interesting synthesis of sounds as well, getting vaguely electronic, vaguely rock, even the occasional smidgen of punk. I've seen him live too, he can build up these songs from the bottom up, the top down, or some strange point in the middle. Very impressive Dustin, if only you weren't afraid to look at the audience.

Warren Zevon - You've probably heard "Werewolves of London" before. But did you know that Warren Zevon (the artist behind "Werewolves") also made other songs? Did you know that those songs could easily be called the best product of 1970s singer-songwriter boom? If no, then you lack education and should listen to more Warren Zevon. Wickedly intelligent, morbidly funny, and yet still capable of being tremendously touching. This is what singer-songwriters should have sounded like.

Public Image Ltd. (PiL) - This was John Lyndon's second band. His first band was this group called the Sex Pistols. Who you may have heard of. This is what came after that, and fittingly, it's post-punk. It can be minimalist to the point of discomfort. The band's strongest offering was the Metal Box album, released in the US as Second Edition, which you should get. It's a monument to Lyndon's attempt to destroy his own career, the antithesis of what a rockstar should be, and of course, it's a masterpiece.

There's more, obviously, there's always more, but I don't want to overwhelm people or take over the thread with my rambling, so this will do for now.

The entirety of Sabaton's Carolus Rex album. It's probably their best work.

I'm just gonna bump this because I want more music.

On the avant-garde/metal end of the spectrum, have some Pinkly Smooth. Led by Avenged Sevenfold's now-deceased drummer, Jimmy Sullivan, the band was a thing before A7X, and it's where A7X's lead guitarist came from. Sadly, they only got around to recording one album, with six songs, which I linked up above, but it's awesome. Really wish they would've done more.

Artists from your area? Why not.

Rodriguez- Sugar Man.

Sixto Rodriguez is a bit of a rarity. He never was a hit here in North America, but if you head to South Africa and bring his name up, people will light up like Christmas. He's probably bigger than Bob Dylan there.


Frijid Pink- House of the Rising Sun

These guys are often mistaken for Pink Floyd, which is a great compliment. In the sixties, what would become Led Zeppelin opened for them in the now closed Grande Ballroom. They also played with the MC5, the Stooges and Amboy Dukes.


Death- Keep on Knockin'

Death is what many people would consider to be a forerunner to Bad Brains and Living Color. The Hackney Brothers and Bobbie Duncan originally started out as an R&B group, but switched up their game after taking in a few Alice Cooper shows.
