    It's hard to take someone seriously when they say "anything but..."
    If that's directed to me - I think it's legitimate to say.

    Not saying I like every song in all genres but one, but I like a large majority of what each genre puts out. If there is some genre that I am not aware of (and Im sure there are hundreds of sub-genres I'm not aware of) then that falls under "unheard of" which I consider differently than liking or disliking, since I haven't personally been able to experience it. Does it mean I like ALL GENRES if I dont know of ALL of them well no not necessarily, but it's also a figure of speech more.

    @ROCKBANDFANATIC7526,

    Haha Pantera. Damn what energy they have. Although they are cool, it's not exactly what I'm looking for. Like I said, something less on the screaming side, more on the singing side. I'm more thinking along the lines of, a little screaming is ok if it's there, but should be mostly melodic. If no screaming is there, that's perfectly ok. Although I will admit, Pantera did know how to shred haha. Not exactly what I'm lookin for though.

    Guess I'll give this a shot.

    I'm trying to find some stuff similar to Blackmore's Night, haven't fared altogether well with following any of the "similar band" listing site dealies.

    Moreso the uh, bouncier stuff of theirs, then the acoustic instrumentals and purist folk tunes.

    Anywho, I am loving Annihilation of the Wicked by Nile. Anything similar out there in terms of Death Metal? Ever since I jumped straight into extreme metal with this album, I've gotten into some metal- and death- core, and the obvious Opeth stuff, but not really any more Death or Black Metal. I like a cleaner, more technical sound, so any Death/Black Metal you can recommend me would be great.

    EDIT: Oh, yeah. I also got into Atheist.
    look into gorguts, lykathea aflame, the first few cryptopsy albums, spawn of possession, and arsis.

    as for behemoth, i consider them pretty dull but they're not really a bad band so a newcomer to death and black metal may dig 'em.

    in regards to cleaner and more technical black metal that's pretty much the opposite of how i tend to like mine, but i imagine you'd probably be into stuff like emperor, enslaved, deathspell omega, negura bunget, etc.

    Can you help me out with anything you can think of that is similar to CANOBLISS? If not don't worry about it.

    to be honest, i don't really know much about that style of music, but one of my best friends from high school plays in a band that canobliss instantly reminded me of called 5 live martyrs...
    they're still struggling to get a good recording, but you can hear some semi-rough recordings here.

    sorry i can't be of more help with this one.

    Can you guys give me some recommendations for blues rock songs/albums similar to Texas Flood and "Red House" (Hendrix on AYE)?
    ROCKBANDFANATIC7526;2595396 said:
    ZZ Top - Tres Hombres, Eliminator
    Derek And The Dominos - Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs
    Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin II
    The Rolling Stones - Out Of Our Heads, Beggars Banquet
    Cream - Fresh Cream
    Also, try one of Kenny Wayne Shepherd's earlier albums like Ledbetter Heights or Trouble Is. If you like Stevie, KWS should be right up your alley.

    Also, Bonnie Raitt, BB King, Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan. If you like the long jamming out solos, check out G3 featuring Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and insert random other awesome guitarist. Speaking of which, check out Eric Johnson

    This post is aimed in particular at afterstatis but I'll take recc's from anyone. I'm looking for shoegaze influenced black metal, stuff similar to Alcest but with abit more emphasis on the black metal.

    i want find good indie music because i have a lot of variety of mainstream music, but not enough indie. The genres i really like are: pop-punk, prog rock, metal (preferably on the softer side), and punk. the genres i dont like: post hardcore, folk, Death Metal, Doom/Black Metal, physcadelic. Im also looking for electronica bands, or any band similar to Silversun Pickups because i heard Panic Switch on the radio and really like it.

    Ive heard TV on The Radio and sorta like em but im not really lovin them.

    can anyone give me any suggestions?

    -look up [B]My Bloody Valentine[/B], they are most similar to Silversun Pickups, not Smashing Pumpkins like you'll hear ppl say

    -since you like Punk, an Indie band with some Punk styles would be Los Campesinos! check them out as well.

    -Indie bands with a more Poppy sound to them~
    The Shins
    The Flaming Lips
    Broken Social Scene
    of Montreal

    The New Pornographers (you know them from RB)
    Architecture In Helsinki
    and Death Cab For Cutie


    -if you like Prog Rock check out Muse if you already haven't

    -and if you like softer metal (oxymoron?:confused:) check out Rage Against The Machine

    I've got a few. I really enjoyed alex chilton from rb2. Are all replacements music that style?

    I also really enjoy painkiller - but little other judas priest stuff offered from rb. Any suggestions? I liked the technical instruments and vocals. I hate, hate, hate death/black metal. The vocals annoy me too much when I can't even try to understand them.

    Also, give it all is endlessly fun on drums and I like the song as well. Anything similar with comparable drumming?

    Haha, no. The Mats' music ranges from hardcore punk to folkish pop-rock, but if you like Alex Chilton, you'll probably like the album it was on, Pleased to Meet Me. Let It Be and Tim are masterpieces as well.

    by softer metal i meant, and i shoulve been more clear about this, anything but death metal/black metal.

    I've been meaning to check out my Bloody Valentine but keep fogetting to, thanks for reminding me.

    Los Campesinos is one ive never heard of, ill be sure to check them out.
    as for the others:
    The Shins (never really liked them, ill check em out again and maybe it'll click)
    Broken Social Scene (never heard of these guys, will check them out)
    Of Montreal (been meaning to check these guys out as well)
    The New Pornagraphers and Death Cab are both bands that i listen to and enjoy a few songs from
    Architecture in Helsinki (another one i have to look up.
    I went through a RATM phase earlier this year, and still like a lot of their songs.

    And finally, Muse. These guys are one of my favorite bands actually! im seeing them with U2 in September, mad stoked for that.

    Thanks for all your help. ill edit this post with thoughts on the bands after i listen to them.

    When the f*ck did they brcome prog.? There is some damn soft metal by the way (Alot of Cowboys From Hell comes to mind)

    ^ Thrash then. Death Angel, Kreator, Sodom, Annhilator, Overkill, Realm. That should be enough for now.
