Ok guys and gals, I need some help and I need it stat – I’m reaching the end of my tether trying to find new bands to listen to that actually sound good, and I’m getting bored of listening to the same albums by the same artists over and over and over.
So I need some fresh blood on my playlist, and I thought who better to reach out to for some ideas but you guys?
I suppose it would help to explain first a little bit about the music I am looking for – basically I enjoy heavy guitar work with some speed to it (nothing slow and plodding thank you – needs some energy in it, but nothing so over the top that it sounds like the result of two trucks hitting eachother head on at over 100mph…), good energetic vocals with some thought behind them – screaming is allowed, but it can’t be over the top (if anyone suggests Cradle of Filth to me I will NEVER speak to them again – that is a promise), and some good drum work behind it all.
A sample of bands that I enjoy (in no particular order) would be – Stonesour, Disturbed, Saliva, Hblockx, Rammstein. Linkin Park, Velvet Revolver, Guns N Roses, Faith No More, Aerosmith, Orgy, Ozzy Ozbourne (but was never a really big fan of his stuff with Black Sabbath), Lost Prophets, and Green Day.
There are a LOT more than that, but I really can’t think of every single one right now (which admittedly is probably a bit stupid when I’m asking for something new – I’m betting that the first 5 bands that are suggested I will already some stuff of…)
Help me Obi Wan, you’re my only hope!
