I want to see if this can work. First, post one of your favorite bands. Now, look at the post before and check them out via a suggested listening comment by the poster or by searching them on YouTube or Pandora. Then, after listening, give a band that you'd think they'd like with similar sound/feel.

 

Remember, you suggest a different band based on their FAVORITE BAND, not the past band.

 

Hope this isn't too hard to understand.

 

EXAMPLE:

 

Poster #1: KSI GlassPrison, check out Blotted Science. They have similar musical nuisances to Dream Theater, but instrumental and a little more heavy.

 

My Band: Explosions In the Sky

 

Poster #2: Poster #1, check out Godspeed You Black Emperor!. They are also a post-rock band but with a more orchestral feel than Explosions In The Sky.

 

My Band: The Mars Volta (Check out Inertiatic ESP)

 

OK, let's start this gravy train.

For example you post...

 

Vermicide, check out Incubus. They have a pop feel with a little bit of technicality mixed in.

 

My Band: Modest Mouse

I've never been a big fan of Tool so although I didn't mind that song, it didn't really thrill me. I prefer a little more guitar centered bands.

 

My Band: Masterplan, Dark From The Dying.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sciL2G5UEqY

 

This band is a little off my usual list, NO VERM ITS NOT DREAM THEATER!!! amazing isn't it? O and verm I checked out Blotted Science... The solos are pretty beautiful... but at least the songs i heard song to heavy for most of my liking. But not bad at all.

Blotted Science is more along the lines of hardcore without the growling. Listen to them more. I think you'll grow on them. Maybe ween you into death metal.

 

My band: Evergrey - A Touch of Blessing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1e-WXm8cbK4) [THIS VIDEO KICKS TUSH]

 

PS - Make sure your band is similar to the previous band. That will make this work more like a genome an d hopefully help people discover new stuff.

(Look up for previous band I'm not posting new band just commenting on something)

 

 

Verm if everyone posts a band that is similar to the one above... we'd never change styles of music. So we'd be stuck on one particular style forever. It is good to have variety.

Eventually, we will move. Bands with varying styles.

 

For example, in response to the last person's band (mine), I say

 

Check out Porcupine Tree. They are also progressive with a taste of metal, but more mellow. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUnAxegUJu0

If the genre should be changed, then you decide. Just make your decision SIMILAR to what was really going on to the music. Not necessarily bands that SOUND the same, but have similar characteristics (guitar work, major/minor tonalities, etc.).

Andy, you were complaining about only one genre being represented, and when I tired to move it, you moved it back to progressive metal!

Yes, but I found new bands for Progressive Metal, and anyways... I think this topic is just me and you so I guess it doesn't matter as much. Was just concerned about if other people only knew like 2 bands similar to some.

My band: The Mars Volta

 

Glass, don't reply. If no one else replies, then this is dead.
