Orofacion,

I'll have to take a look if this store offers their Vinyl editions... they have an entire Vinyl-section!

Imbëar,

computer crashes are unnerving when one is about to post a long answer, that's for sure. I'll look into Guided By Voices, anyway.

As for DJ Shadow, this seems to be really interesting. I've heard of him, sure, but never really had the chance to make myself familiar with his work. The excerpts are powerful and calming - seems to be a great artist. I guess it's ambient, nearly meditative work? Like, say, Aphex Twin? Must be worth a try! []

Nash,

I have never heard of Loudmouth (but that's the purpose of the thread, ins't it? [] ), but if they come close Led Zep, then, what can one do wrong?

Led Zep []
Have you heard of a group called Dread Zeppelin? A cross between Led Zep, reggae and Elvis Presley [] They did some interesting stuff including a wicked cover of 'Black Dog' []

Dread Zeppelin? [] Only an Englishmen could find interest in that one! [] Really, it seems as if those guys would be fun to see live on stage somewhere (Dread Zeppelin that is, not the English people...)

Dolmed,
if you recall, the English enjoyed several centuries of stage practice, and all they could come up with were thinly veiled references to the goode knyght's spur!

While doing my Christmas shopping last week, I had to buy myself a gift.

The album: Damnation and a Day: from Genesis to Nemesis, by the epic metal band, Cradle of Filth.

For those with tamer appetites, I do not recommend this band, this band's theme, or this style of music.

This is one of their heaviest albums since The Principle of Evil Made Flesh, and this album is certainly the best studio production to date. Not only did Sony and Epic records financially back this album, but Cradle of Filth also employed the Buddapest Symphony for instrumentals and increasingly haunted vocals.

The album begins with a section called Fantasia Down:
the first track, a musical piece called A Bruise Upon the Silent Moon, leads directly into A Promise of Fever...

This is not nu-metal. Buyer beware.

I can't believe I didn't call attention to this artist in this thread, but you all go, for your reading enjoyment:

DAVID GRAY - This man is seriously one of the BEST and most seriously underrated artists out there right now. He got a little big in the States (and prally a lot of other places) with his song "Babylon", but has since slid into a little bit of obscurity. I heard his song "Be Mine" on a little indie radio station, and I fell head over heels. His newest album "A New Day at Midnight" is simply amazing. It's one of the few CDs that I can always ALWAYS listen to straight through. I think the thing I like most about him is his lyrics. They are all so true, and most people can relate to them. I seriously recommend checking out the songs "Caroline", "Kangaroo", those I mentioned above ("Be Mine" and "Babylon"), and my absolute favorite "EASY WAY TO CRY" When I am alone in my room and that song comes on, I cannot help but tear up, because the lyrics are so poignant and true. David Gray is simply amazing. Not crazy hard rock or anything, but nice, mellow, relatable music. He's just... awesome (can you tell I love this guy?)

In the name of all interested in music, thanks for all your input! []

I'm not that much into the Black Metal scene, Imbëar, but I enjoy a bit of Blind Guardian (though I'm sure that's nothing what comes close Black Metal, but what should I call it?), especially the Middel Earth related albums. I will try to get some mp3s of your album.

A week ago, I once again went to my favourite record store and purchased "The World Is Not A Cold Dead Place" by Explosions In The Sky - disregard the all-too emo-like name, it is great instrumental music. However, the band's a small one, merely consisting of 2 guitars, 1 bass and a drummer, of course - the structures are clear and quite open, but nevertheless great atmospheric work. Well worth a try.

Hey Belegurth!
"Time Stands Still At the Iron Hill" is one of my favorites!
I categorize Blind Guardian as concept-Metal.
Germans seem to love Metal and Middle Earth.
A rash of bands have made the scene, with names like Morgoth, Ephel Duath, Amon Amarth, Gorgoroth, et cetera...

If you are going to download any mp3's by Cradle of Filth, let me suggest a few of their prominent songs:
"Cthulhu Dawn," "Her Ghost in the Fog," and "Summer Dying Fast" off of their Midian album.
Other memorable tracks are:
"From the Cradle to Enslave," "Dusk and Her Embrace," "Queen of Winter Throned," and "A Crescendo of Passion Bleeding."
"A Dream of Wolves in the Snow" is a nice slow piece, with an introductory quote from Bram Stoker's Dracula....
"Ah, listen to them, the children of the night; what [sweet] music they make."

Ah, the whole "Nightfall In Middle Earth" is a beautiful album - it's indeed one of the few German bands that seem to be accepted all over the world.

I have already visited Cradle Of Filth's internet site and listened to some clips - of course, I cannot tell anything on this basis, but I'll definitely get the songs you recommended. As in every musical genre, there seem to be many bands that should just have recorded an empty CD [] . COF seem to be quite the opposite.

Thank you, again.

Which is hard, since only about ten people have their songs. We'll see about making it more accessible.

Well I have a few bands that I think EVERYONE should listen to. The first is the almighty =W= otherwise known as Weezer. You don't know what music is until you've heard Buddy Holly off the Blue Album. It has the single greatest guitar riff in the history of music. Sublime rocks, but I suggest you try some of their lesser known albums. Gotta love the unique blend of raggae, hip hop and rock. Smooth listening mon. Although they're a Christian band, Audio Adrenaline is top notch. Hit Parade, Some Kind of Zombie and Underdog are by far their best albums. Also, Rage Against the Machine for the hardcore political activist. Zack Dela Rocha will have you sending hate mail to the president before you get off the first track. []

Also Tantric is a GREAT band if you like a good mix of acoustic and electric with enough soul to pull it off without a hitch. And if you're into Shock Rap, check out Twiztid. I think their name says it all. For straight rock I can't forget to mention the wonderous rthymes of such bands as Sponge, Garbage, Everclear, Linkin Park, Papa Roach and The Donnas. Fastball, Sound Garden, Marcy's Playground, Offspring, Pink Floyd, Barenakedladies, Marilyn Manson, Smashmouth, Kid Rock, Ice Cube, Emeniem, Savage Garden and the list goes on and on and on.

And now for my metal picks: Guano Apes, System of a Down, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Sugar Ray(pink lemonade and brownies), Godsmack, Powerman 5000 and of course Orgy.

Yeah so I have alot of favorite bands. You'll NEVER see me not listening to music. Might as well tell me to stop breathing.

Imbear-- there's one called Turambar, too. []

And whoever said Converge, I second that.

Also, I think it was Peony who mentioned Hot Hot Heat, who ROCK. If you're into them at all I'd bet you'd like !!! (You may also see them called Chik, Chik, Chik if you're into indie or Pow, Pow, Pow for the punk rockers). They're one of my favorite bands ever.

Mr. Lif, Kid Koala, MC Paul Barman and Sunspot Jonze are all amazing, too, for anybody who digs hip hop. []

System of a Down is awesome -> If you haven't heard of them listen to Chop Suey!

Nirvana -> Although I admit I don't like all of their stuff, Smells Like Teen Spirit is an awesome song, as well as Heart Shaped Box.

Evanescence -> Sorry for those of you who don't like them, but you have to admit that her voice is INCREDIBLE. I'd recommend My Immortal. Very talented (former) pianist.

Cadet - No, not the instrumental band, the punk/pop band. I haven't heard a lot of their stuff, but Nobody is an awesome song.

Fefe Dobson -> Just whatever you do, don't download Bye Bye Boyfriend. [] Try Take Me Away.

FM Static -> Definitely Maybe, or Crazy Mary.

Oh, and check out the band Bloody Mary, when they finally get a demo out. []

*reads previous posts*...SO glad someone mentioned Led Zeppelin. Thankee.

But also...

MC Solaar - Ok, get ready for some obscure french Hip Hop! Seriously, though, this guy is awesome. He's got the funk. My favorite song of his? Bouge de la. Definately Bouge de la.

Ani DiFranco - C'mon folks! Angry chick music! But seriously, though, this girl is awesome with a guitar, and her lyrics kick. Yyyep.

Andrée 3000 - Y'all know the rap super-group OutKast, but Andrée now has his own CD, The Love Below. It's awesome. He plays all the instruments on it, and wrote all the songs, with the exception of a few appearances by guest artists. It's awesome. Check it out.

Peony, dear, I tried to name relatively obscure artists, but I had to tell the world about Andrée...

*realizes she is sounding like a music commercial, will stop now*

...Thank you for your time.

LOL it's alright. At least you were recommending good music. And the funny thing is, I have heard of MC Solaar. We rocked out to him back in ninth grade French.

EDIT: Also, another thing I've been meaning to post. I'm sure a good amount of people hear have heard of the game Dance Dance Revolution, but have you ever tried to just listen to the music? I love the music from it!! Especially the song "Cafe" That's a winner.
