Willie Turns 4

Yep... it's been four years now... still posting shit... these are good bands that I discovered through the site in the last 12 months and my favorite album by them (or the only one I've heard).r...I'm in love with those Tank Thong ads :)
1Alana Grace
With One Word


Female-fronted mainstream rock. Kind of like a cross between Kelly Clarkson and Evanescence (but closer to Clarkson).
2Amaya Laucirica
Early Summer


Mellow indie pop. Smooth and relaxing.
3Amia Venera Landscape
The Long Procession


Most people should know about this by now. Underoath meets post metal with a bit of math rock thrown in. Crushing and ambient... good stuff.
4Arkan
Salam


Death metal with some sort of ethnic sounding twist. They kind of have a progressive edge too. The only thing is that their melodies are all kind of similar. They're still a one-trick pony that needs to diversify a bit.
5An Autumn For Crippled Children
Lost


Epic Atmospheric black metal with post rock tendancies.
6 Be'lakor
Stone's Reach


Melodic death metal done exceptionally well
7Born of Osiris
The Discovery


Tech death with keyboards. Definitely better than a lot of their peers.
8Broken Little Sister
Memories Violet and Demons


Atmospheric shoegaze from Japan. Lush synths, electronic undercurrents, ethereal vocals.... yeah, it's all there.
9Clubroot
II - MMX


I'm lead to believe that this is dubstep. I'm not the biggest fan of the genre, but this is pretty good. It's just chill electronic music with kind of a new age slant. Delerium without the vocals, but with better beats?
10Dawn of Ashes
Genocide Chapters


Industrial death/black metal that kicks some serious ass.
11 Dead When I Found Her
Harm's Way


What would have happened if Skinny Puppy had decided to explore the direction found on "Worlock" with its strong chorus and dark, gothy undertones... this album is the answer.
12Deadlock
Manifesto


Quirky meodic death metal/metalcore with both male and female vocals. These guys aren't afraid to add electronic and hip-hop elements to their sound, and it mostly works.
13Decree
Fateless


Industrial that shares alot with Godflesh. Features one of the dudes from Front Line Assembly.
14Emme Packer
Joy. The Machine.


Folky indie pop. I'm a sucker for it... I just can't help myself.
15Forsaken
After the Fall


Traditional style doom metal with a powerful vocalist. For fans of Candlemas, Solitude Aeturnus and Isole
16Glasser
Ring


Electronic music with female vocals... very chill, but still upbeat.
17Glassjaw
Coloring Book


Post hardcore 'superstars' that I had never bothered to check out. The vocalist is kind of hard to get into, but at least I know where Finch got their inspiration for their awesome second album.
18The Honey Trees
Wake the Earth


Female fronted alt. rock/indie pop.
19The Human Abstract
Digital Veil


BTBAM style technical death metal, but these guys are much more appealing.
20The Hundred in the Hands
The Hundred in the Hands


Electro indie pop with kind of a funk/disco vibe.
21Impaled Nazarene
Road to the Octagon


Thrashy black metal. Awesome driving music.
22The Jezabels
Dark Storm


indie pop with an exceptional vocalist and talented drummer.
23Last Winter
The Heart and the Broken Compass


Mainstream rock/pop punk. It kind of reminds me of what it would sound like if RED included a pop punk influence... or maybe Hoobastank if they were still good.
24Muchuu
Adventure We Go


Lo-fi electronic pop with a cutesy edge. Kind of like Lights.
25Necro Facility
Wintermute


Skinny Puppy meets Depeche Mode? Great electro industrial with strong vocals and catchy hooks.
26Neranature
Foresting Wounds


Proggy mainstream rock featuring the female vocalist from black metal band Darzamat.
27Now, Now
Neighbors


Semi-abrasive, yet mellow indie pop. Kind of has an Eisley vibe to it... which is a good thing.
28Paper Aeroplanes
The Day We Ran into the Sea


Female fronted alt. pop -- very good and very catchy.
29Poema
Sing it Now


Same basic idea: Female fronted alt. pop -- very good and very catchy.
30Regina Spektor
Far


Quirky indie pop with a lot of cool piano parts.
31Rie Sinclair
On the 5th Floor


female fronted alt. rock -- almost sounds like modern country without the twang.
32The Saddest Landscape
You Will Not Survive


Excellent emo/post hardcore with a semi-unique vocalist.
33Samantha James
Rise


Mellow female-fronted electro.
34Scarling.
So Long, Scarecrow


Very noisy shoegaze. Awesome shit.
35Septic Flesh
The Great Mass


Symphonic death metal. Apparently earlier albums are better, but I've only heard this one and it's really good.
36The Sorrow
The Sorrow


One of the few good metalcore releases I've heard this year. Some people are comparing it to latter-day Killswitch Engage, but I don't like those albums and I do like this. Definitely has better vocals and music than those albums.
37States
Line em Up EP


female fronted alt. rock -- they sound a hell of a lot like a more abrasive version of Eisley.
38Stripmall Architecture
Albino Peacock


Indie pop with a strong electronic influence (that gets stronger with each new album).
39The Sun Came Up Upon the Left
And the Dreams so Rich in Color


Very dissonant atmospheric black metal.
40Swarms
Old Raves End


So, this is dubstep... to me, it just sounds like old school The Orb.
41Tamaryn
The Waves


Dark, lo-fi shoegaze with an abrasive, gothy edge.
42Throes of Dawn
The Great Fleet of Echoes


Doom with kind of a new-style Anathema influence. Very epic stuff. Also kind of reminds of "deeper kind of slumber" era Tiamat
43Ulcerate
The Destroyers of All


God damn, this is some awesome death metal... it's not melodic death metal, really, but it's definitely more diverse than your average Cannibal Corpse album.
44Vigilante
The New Resistance: North American Special Edition


Fast paced industrial metal with a ton of guest vocalists/musicians.
45Winterfylleth
The Mercian Sphere


Epic black metal. Similar to Wolves in the Throne Room.
46Winterus
In Carbon Mysticism


More epic black metal, but with shorter song times and a post rock influence.
47Woe
Quietly, Undramatically


High speed black metal with a decent production.
48Yohanna
Butterflies and Elvis


acoustic pop that is very similar to Lene Marlin... how can that be bad?
4965Daysofstatic
One Time for All Time


Electronics-based post rock... yes please.
50Detroit Diesel
Terre Humaine


no frills harsh EBM -- nothing special but I had one spot to fill ;)
