What do you suggest?

Postby mofisto » Mon Jul 01, 2002 8:17 pm

I was wondering, what other bands are within my taste musically? I am rather limited on my music listening, living in rural Iowa. If you think someone is really awesome let me know, I would like to start finding original music, not hyped up by MTV or local radio stations.

I like: Korn, White Zombie(Rob), Static X, KMFDM(MDFMK), Rammstein, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Kittie, Apartment 26, Coal Chamber, Fear Factory, Marilyn Manson, Sevendust, Staind, Drowning Pool, Adema, Earshot, Dope, Union Underground, Slipknot, Headstrong, Flaw, Primer 55, Deftones, Nine Inch Nails, Mudvayne, Head PE, Orgy, Pantera, Pitchshifter, POD, PM5K, Rage, and a few more.

But I am starting to wear out these guys, and would like to experience some new stuff,


Thanks in advance.

i know you have heard them, but you might not have heard stuff from system of a down's first cd. it's soooo much better then their new stuff, you'd love it. and you'd probably like pennywise, and bad religion too. i don't like em, but by studying your musical taste, you might enjoy megadeath, metalica, alica in chains, and black sabbath.

if you'd wanna break out of your heavy metal box, you could, without a doubt try incubus and our lady peace. fat boy slim has some good stuff. try dj tiesto while you're at it.

no question, give nirvana a listen. they are one of, if not the best band in existance(not an opinion). but don't be confined to their most popular album, nevermind, listen to IT ALL! cause it's worth it, beleive me.

sublime and beatsteaks are some more bands that are incredible. 311 is awesome. excuse me if i am repeating anything you already listen to btw! smashing pumpkins have some great stuff. red hot chili peppers has a ton of great songs. give offspring's older stuff a chance too.

that's all i can think of now.

I haven't heard their first album. I have the album with the hand from Dune on the cover(can't remember title) I do listen to Megadeth, Metallica, Alice in Chains, and Black Sabbath. Though I haven't listened to pennywise, or bad religion. I have heard Soul Fly, and didn't care for them much. I like the heavy metal, but techno is cool too. I dont' like Incubus or our lady peace. Fat Boy Slim is pretty good. Nirvana is the bomb and Sublime and 311 are good too. RHCP is good, but I don't really like their new stuff. Offspring is good too.

What I am looking for is new stuff, like not even on MTV or on the radio. I have trouble finding up and coming artists.

stabbing westward is really good. um...kamelot is great. skinnypuppy, ministry....hmm...this is hurting my head trying to remember a bunch of band names. these are all bands that i love btw. let's see, there's dj shadow is good, as is natalie imbruglia(so what, i like her). led zepplin, foo fighters, pipedown, 98 mute, less than jake, millencolin, goldfinger, and anti-flag. i highly suggest you try all of the bands i mention in this post, and the ones you declined in my previous. most of the stuff i gave you isn't played on the radio or mtv, as most are punk or industrial, which tend to not go commercial for moral reasons(?). you have to try system's first cd, just in case you forgot. dead kenedys are all right i guess, i don't like em all that much but you could try em. again, you must try beatsteaks, as they are very very good.

oh yeah, i totally forgot you said new...an incredible up and coming punk band called 1208 is awesome. you probably heard them, but cold is great too. i don't really know too many new bands now that i think of it. just try the stuff i gave you if haven't already heard them.

crap, i left out two really good bands that you would probably love. nonpoint and soil are incredible, and fit your tastes well.

also, as you said you would like to break out of your metal box. a very good instrumental band is Silent Hill OST. it's all incredible. extremely diversified music. even has at least one metal song in the bunch of great music the produce.

Mofisto.. I see youve listed alot of classic metal. Heres some bands I can recommend based on that.

Iced Earth (they have a CD of covers of songs from Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Kiss, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, etc..)
Nevermore
Blind Guardian
Nocturnal Rites
Elvenking
Helloween
Gamma Ray
Stratovarius

Hopefully that can help you some.

I'm not sure if you'll like them or not but there is a band called Kamelot. I've made a video to one of their songs, song #2 of the Elizabeth Trilogy, Requiem for the Innocent if you wanna check it out.

My recommendations:
<b>Rammstein</b>(You may have heard them already)
<b>Pig</b> (also part of the new KMFDM lineup,now)
<b>Children Of Bodom</b> (Finnish black metal,in English)
<b>Wumpscut</b> (German techno-industrial artist.Can be scary sounding at times)
<b>Front 242</b> (Classic industrial!)
<b>Megaherz</b> (Lesser known German rock group)
<b>OOMPH!</b> (Great German industrial group)
<b>Chemlab</b> (Industrial rock,well,rocks!)
<b>Dimmu Borgir</b> (Norwegian black metal,typically pretty cool)
<b>Earth Crisis</b> ("Straight edge" hard rock)
<b>Kreator</b> (Old school,non wussy,speed metal)
Gravity Kills and Iced Earth,from what I've heard of them,seem good also.

Hope this helps!
I'm out...

I'd highly reccommend Stabbing Westward (I'd get Darkest Days first).
The Smashing Pumpkins are really great also, especially on Machina (In my opinion anyway).
Savatage is pretty good too.

Most of what I would recommend was already mentioned, but here's a few:

Spineshank
Finger Eleven (~!~!)
Silverchair
Boy Hits Car
Craving Theo
Down (One of the many Pantera side projects)
Fugazi
Onesidezero
Opeth
Reveille

Also, I'd recommend Jerry Cantrell's solo stuff. I have Boggy Depot, and while there is some filler, the rest is great.
