PostSubject: Is there any bands I need to know about?   Wed Sep 05, 2018 5:19 am

This is a silly question, since we have this amazing interweb with all Googles and stuff.

But can you share me some bands and artists I really need to know, ones that I haven´t been aware of and so unable to search out myself.

I´m all for intuitive and clever rock and metal.

Lately there has been more time for listening to music, but I have realized that I am too stuck on safe answers and familiar bands.

Keep them coming, just names on a list, I´ll search them :-D

That's a hard question to answer because we don't know what bands you are already familiar with. I'd love to share some bands with you, if you can give me a little more info to go on.

I know OBF Laughing

Bands/artists I listen maybe too much: Iron Maiden, Helloween, Dream Theater, Queensryche, Slayer, Motörhead, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Sting, U2, Poets of the fall, Kingston Wall, Rammstein... and many many others from poppish rock to metal, but as you can see, these bands are old ones.

I need new artists that can work with those limits, but still bring freshnes and something new.

Hey guys! WASP I know. I was what 8 years old when I took them into my arms. Laughing


But this Metric was totally new one to me. Thanks Addy! I´ve been listening to them now quite a lot and I´m liking what I´m hearing.

I love the vocals of Emily Haines and the wall of sound and athmosphere the band creates. This was good!!

I have explored them via YouTube. So far songs that has struck me most are: Breathing underwater, Artificial nocturne, Sympathy, Now or never now.

I´m ordering two albums at first: Synthetica and Art of doubt.

Are you looking for something different from your usual listening, or something along the same sound?

Both. Something totally new (like the Metric, it was a gem) and something with the same sound, but with a little hint of something new and fresh.. a little.

As far as I´ve been searching their music now, I have heard here and there a little bit of U2ish sounds and elements. Am I hearing right and does it cut throught their whole catalogue?

It would be great, because I love U2, but it is also a very tiny tiny something in the package that is totally on their own right.

Are you familiar with The Alarm? If you like U2 you'd probably dig The Alarm.

Thats a toughie , Im not a big fan of U2 I always thought they had some Cure elements as far as the synth parts go, i was listening to samples from the new album there was a song that for a moment reminded me of the Cure's Lovesong
