A Year On Sputnik

A year ago, I created my account, I really love this site, it has teached me a lot about music and new awesome bands, and yes, even though the community is full of douchebags, I'm starting to think, that they're actually nice. Here's a list of the best 10 bands that I discovered thanks to this site through this year
1Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...

Yeah, I know, they're like the most mainstream thing on this site, but I didn't know nothing about them nor post-rock. I really love the atmosphere of their albums, it's depressive, but at the same time gives me hope to carry on on life
Turn of the Cards

Now this is an aweome band, Annie Haslam's voice has to be one of the greatest ever, classic songs like Mother Russia, Ashes are Burning or A Trip to the Fair are an incredible mix of prog rock and symphonic music, these guys are the proof that music is the most beautiful art on earth
3Nick Drake
Five Leaves Left

Just like GYBE, it seems like he's a god on sputnik but I didn't know about him until I joined, his music is so simple yet beautiful, he's voice is full of soul and his lyrics are nothing but impressive, I seriously think this guy might be more than Dylan
Never Turn Your Back on a Friend

I thought I knew all the good heavy metal bands from the 70's, but this weird mix of Rush and Black Sabbath has surprised me a lot, fantastic riffs, incredible bass-work and great vocals. Breadfan, Parents, Napoleon Bonarparte, awesome songs, their first 5 albums are just great
Hero and Heroine

Great mix of prog and folk, Hero and Heroine shows in its epic (one of the greatest songs I've heard): Autumn, how they can go from a dark, depressive atmosphere to beautiful ballads keeping the awesome lyrics all the time
6Diamond Head
Lightning to the Nations

Their first album is by far one of the best albums in the NWOBHM, Sean Harris voice is incredible and there's no doubt why they were so influential with such an epic guitar work, songs like Helpless are just soooo good
The Mantle

Another big band on this site that I didn't know until I joined, I could've 5'd The Mantle because it has a great atmosphere, and excellent instrumental work and epic lyrics, its just perfect, but I'm just not used to these kind of vocals yet

I don't really understand the lyrics, because I don't speak french, but they sound extremly well, awesome, relaxing prog that doesn't need epic guitar solos to be good, the flutes, the synthetizers, it's great, I think I prefer L'Heptade over Si on Avait... but the community thinks different I think
9The Enid
In the Region of the Summer Stars

I still need to listen to a lot of their albums, but from what I've heard, it's great: atmospheric instrumental prog rock, with a lot of different styles, their first album has to be the perfect soundtrack album for an epic movie
10Mercyful Fate

I've just discovered them, King Diamond can reach awesome notes and the guitar work is fantastic, Melissa has to be one of the greatest metal albums from the 80. I can't agree with their lyrics, but I will listen to their other albums (and then I'll go with King Diamond's career) because it really sounds great
