afterstasis;1741066 said:you rang, instantdeath?that's a pretty wide range there, instantdeath... here's what immediately comes to mind, but please feel free to be more specific and i'll throw out some more names...carissa's wierd (the misspelling is correct), three mile pilot, thingy, low, dianogah, and xiu xiu all tend to get lumped in with indie, yet don't quite fit the mold exactly.obscurity is probably based on what circles you fly.
instantdeath999;1741924 said:I used the word "obscure", because I'm looking for something I probably wouldn't discover on my own. I'm really open to any era, but I would like to find some good newer bands. Genre's I haven't explored very much include, but aren't limited to, No-wave, Krautrock, Shoegaze, New-wave (you already gave me some recommendations that I plan to try out eventually), Jazz, preferably Free Jazz, Black metal, and Symphonic metal.Yeah, I'm pretty open right now. For Jazz and Black metal, I'm actually looking for the bigger, essential artists to scratch the surface.

schmeankman;1746112 said:Also, can someone give me some good Zombies-like 60's pop-rock bands?
Alright_Computer;1744752 said:I'm starting to get into 80's synthpop stuff like Depeche Mode and New Order, and I'd like to go further. Recommendations?

JukeBoxHero;1747125 said:Alright I went through them all. Battles wasn't too bad, I wouldn't mind looking more up by them. Dol Ammad has a solid sound but I didn't particularly like that songs as well as the others. Kaddisfly is along the same line of Battles. Karnataka was great, it's a different take on progressive rock then I am use to but it was a cool song. Magenta was awesome, both of these female fronted bands were good. I haven't heard a lot of progressive rock with female vocals really(besides Renaissance), so it's a nice change from the norm. Now that I think about it, I've heard of Orphaned Land, Nevermore, and Battles(from you) before hand. Nevermore was solid and Orphaned Land was decent too.Thanks for putting up the video samples, even if they weren't the best that you wanted.
jeccaneko;1748513 said:I'm curious about glam rock. David Bowie and now Semi-Precious Weapons got me curious about the genre. Other recommendations?
afterstasis;1748852 said:sweet, t.rex, slade, wizzard, mud, gary glitter, and later shudder to think (though not really glam rock it's definitely got a similar vibe, and were one of my last hopes for quality music of that sort).
Runesmith;1749052 said:Would Hanoi Rocks count as glam rock, too?
back_blows;1749993 said:Afterstasis, do you have any mental asylum music similar to Stallagh?
back_blows;1750142 said:Awesome. I'll check 'em out ASAP.
TheCrimsonSaint;1750216 said:Nirvana - bleach (i think nirvana's a good band to explore in chronological order)Deep Purple - machine headJudas Priest - painkiller or screaming in vengeance
afterstasis;1750199 said:awesome.i just noticed i misread your post. i thought you only wanted metal...you should also check out a lot of outsider stuff... daniel johnston, robbie basho, dave cloud, charles manson, joe meek, scott walker, reynols, wild man fischer, and (my favorite) jandek.
