    Proto metal isn't really my thing, but Anthrax is pretty good. Thanks

    I would not diss Proto Metal until you hear many of the bands :(

    You mentioned Slayer and Metallica which indicated you like Thrash and 4 most known bands for it are Anthrax, Megadeth, Metallica, and Slayer

    I'll try any kind of genre, I just don't like what I've heard from proto metal. Any other suggestions for that?

    1st 3 vids are not really deep songs by the bands, but good examples of Proto Metal

    2nd 3 vids are just an intro to Modern Prog. Metal

    psychedelic music is incredibly varied, easily going beyond the typical 60's/70's rock music that most people immediately think of when confronted with the term so it's pretty difficult to deliver a brief list...
    to demonstrate this i'll list 5 bands that i personally enjoy from a few of the wider subgenres one can find...

    psych folk: comus, the incredible string band, vashti bunyan, woods, and pearls before swine

    psych metal: nachtmystium, the hidden hand, a forest of stars, earthless, phlebotomized, and kayo dot

    psych pop: ariel pink, the zombies, love, klaatu, and john maus


    there's loads more (of course including psych and kraut rock), particularly when you start getting into deeper psych ranging from free-folk to psych noise and drone.

    if it's a sound you enjoy you're lucky to have hundreds if not thousands of artists to explore.

    Stoner Witch is my favorite, but Houdini and Gluey Porch Treatments are also very good.

    Looking for all the Bloc Party and Silversun Pickups fans. Lazy Eye being on the main setlist and Melatonin and Well Thought Out Twinkles being Rock Band DLC has gotten me into SP a bit and I would like to know if it would be better to buy Carnavas or Swoon first. For Bloc Party, I've been interested since Helicopter was in GH3 and I've made put Banquet and Hunting For Witches as custom songs for GH2 on my PS2. I'd like some input from you guys on which of their 3 albums to buy first. Thanks for reading this.
    I'd say start with Carnavas and Silent Alarm. I'm not a big fan of Bloc Party, but Silent Alarm is good.

    First off, Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965–1968 is essential to any person's music collection. It might be the best compilation ever.

    Some great psychedelic stuff that I know of:

    Classic
    The 13th Floor Elevators Psychedelic Sounds of
    Big Brother & the Holding Company Cheap Thrills
    Blue Cheer Vincebus Eruptum
    Brian Wilson SMiLE
    Caravan In the Land of the Grey and Pink
    Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention Freak Out!
    Grateful Dead Live/Dead
    Iron Butterfly In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida
    Leaf Hound Growers of Mushroom
    Love Forever Changes or Da Capo
    The Moody Blues Days of the Future Past
    Pink Floyd Piper at the Gates of Dawn
    Quicksilver Messenger Service Self-titled or Happy Trails
    The Zombies Odessey and Oracle

    Also look into Stoner rock (Kyuss, etc.), Krautrock (bands such as Neu! and Kraftwerk), the Canterbury scene (Soft Machine), shoegaze (My Bloody Valentine, Ride). Also look into Elephant 6 artists, many of whom play awesome psychedelic pop.

    If Gowie was here, he'd recommend the Sounds of Animals Fighting as well, and they are a little harder to approach but awesome nonetheless.

    Edit: Forgot to mention psychedelic trance music if you want to completely get lost in your own world.
    As well as psychedelic soul. Check out some of The Temptations less mainstream material.

    I mentioned this album:D, I know most of the bands you mentioned, just haven't really looked into them too deeply:(

    Eh, that one album probably defines psychedelic music, and even Pink Floyd, for me.

    67 has to be the greatest year for psychedelic rock, am I right?

    i'm not sure i could ever pick a specific year, but a lot of great stuff was definitely happening at that time...

    for those wanting to dig deeper into psychedelic music please take the time to utilize this thread.
    whether you're looking for poppy jangles or total brain-flushers i promise there's some good stuff to be found there!

    67? I don't think you can pin it on a single year. But it was definitely a good year for it.

    What's some good alternative hip-hop? Stuff similar to Deltron 3030, Handsome Boy Modelling School, Danger Mouse, Madvillain, Edan, etc.
    Preferably not just another project by any of the individuals involved with those (MF Doom, Del, Dan the Automator, etc.) but something by someone else.

    I'm a little biased towards that year
