The RBN Made Me Love This Artist/Band Thread

I was curious if something like this happened to anyone else.

Back when it was first revealed Amberian Dawn was coming to RBN, I checked them out and got super excited. After playing the two songs, I'm interested in buying their CDs (prefer that over MP3s). I'm just looking to see if I can find a cheaper place than Amazon.

RBN also further cemented my love for JoCo. Next time I'm on the mainland US I'd like to see him live if possible. :)

What about you guys?

    I absolutely adored A Jagged Gorgeous Winter when I heard it first on RB2. I've been hooked on The Main Drag ever since. I really dig their sound and think the drumming is incredible.

    I am by no means a huge fan of jazz but Bill Bruford's Earthworks might change that. I haven't had a better time playing RB than Footloose and Fancy Free.

    The James William Roy tracks have also been quite a pleasant surprise. Paper Valentines is my favorite track that I had never heard of previously.

    I'm still confused why you disappeared from General and won't talk to any of us.

    I love that track too. It makes me sad I've seen some people complain that they charted the sax to vocals. I think it's great. I've seen so many musicians "sing" along with an instrument when listening to music, plus the possibilities of playing a real instrument with the game (just use the mic to pick it up) or to just do scat style vocals yourself is awesome.

    Loving Amberian Dawn also, as an Epica fan who is glad to have another band on here with a comparable sound. Glad to see lots of other players like them too, and that there are 5 more tracks on the way!

    Other bands I've stumbled upon as a result of RBN? Children of Nova remains the only band to sell me on a CD due to having a fantastic song on RBN (it's great!). Both of the Glass Hammer tracks are also excellent, so I'm interested in checking out more from them.

    Also, though I wouldn't really call myself a fan, I do now have six songs from Terrorhorse on my iPod thanks to their involvement with RBN, have bought Packet Flier despite knowing I may never pass Expert Guitar, and am hoping to see Heffer Exploder appear in playtest...well shoot, I guess I am a fan!

    You could always buy direct from their webshop:

    But I don't know if 13.99 € is cheaper than what it costs on Amazon. :)

    Free Spirit - "Far Away From Heaven" is my favorite RBN track. I would like to see more from this band.

    During playtest, I got to be a fan of both Scratching the Itch and You Shriek. Both have more tracks on the way.

    Stay tuned for even more TERRORHORSE songs to hit the RBN store in the future as "Packet Flier" isn't the only song you will see by these guys on here! We also have a "Packet Flier" drum contest that will be announced within the next few days so all you hardcore drummers better get ready to win some free TERRORHORSE merch courtesy of me, the merch guy!

    I've really enjoyed Zack Wilson's songs - Moonshine Hollar's just plain FUNNY.

    They have a great vibe to them. Expect to see "Until the Night" and "Pale Sister of Light" on the RBN store in the future.

    If you guys like any of the current RockGamer tracks feel free to check out http://www.rockgamerstudios.com/songs/ to see if more from the same artist have been announced. Glad to hear everyone enjoying the tracks we've authored!

    Saw JoCo live at PAX last year. So awesome!

    This kind of thing has certainly happened to me through Rock Band/Guitar Hero, but not yet with RBN. I'm sure it will though.

    None yet, they all sound too amateurish, but that jazz song is very good. More jazz to RBN, that´s all.

    The main bands I want to look more into from RBN are Five FInger Death Punch, Children of Nova, The Main Drag, Bang Camaro, and Between the Buried and Me. I already knew BtBaM from Colors, but I want to go into their older stuff.

    Since I picked up the song "Genius" by The B.O.L.T., I can't seem to stop playing it. Loved the track so much that I got their EP. Hope for more by them will make it through the RBN.
