|Thank You Sputnik|
these are some bands that the sputnik community has introduced me to while i've been a member.
|1||August Burns Red|
i originally started liking metalcore, because of As I Lay Dying, but these guy are far superior IMO. plus being a Christian, the lyrics mean alot more.
not the kind of music i generally listen to, but loved them anyway.
i was blown away by their intense sound, and technical precision, reminds me a lot od DEP.
this band was exactly what i thought they would be. epic.
i really like the melodic and atmospheric sound of this band, even if the vocals took some getting used to
this was my first industrial band, and i couldnt ask for a better way to start my journey into that genre
The Artist In The Ambulance
i had always heard of them, but never bought one of their albums until i heard you guys freakin out about Artist in the Ambulance. turns out it really is that good.
The Moon is A Dead World
i still hate pretty much everything else in this genre, but for some reason this band is magical
|3 is fucking sweet. I'd personally like to thank sputnik for Mew.|
|very good stuff here|
|way to take the easy way out. good for you!|
|8 is definitely pure genius, you should delve further into the genre though, there'd surely be something you'd like|
|If you haven't already, check out Godspeed You! Black Emperor. It's more magical than anything else on this list.|
|will def check them out, thanks.|
|I'm really digging Gospel at the moment, any bands like them I should check out?|
|maybe some Funeral Diner, Off Minor, Kidcrash, and Hot Cross|
|Melissa: you heard any Pg.99 ? Document #8 is kinda similar to that Gospel album.|
|Funeral Diner def!|
I would like to thank sputnik for like all my favorite albums ahah.
|Heard of them, probably from this site actually. I'll look into it, thanks Stan :)|
|haha no kidding YouAreMySilence, this sight is a gold mine. |
no problem Mel ;) At The Drive-In and Circle Takes The Square are pretty similar too, but you prolly already knew that, since they're a bit more popular lol.
|Already got both of them haha.|
|As for bands you should listen to which you might like if you like Isis (all bands have links to songs and are good starting points):|
Neurosis: no Isis without Neurosis
Cult Of Luna: probably the most similar band to Isis without getting into the lesser known bands like Ganon etc.
Rosetta: considering you like some brutal, think about what would happen if isis got more brutal but somehow got more brutal in space.
Russian Circles: instrumental band that is similar to Isis but chucks in some neat headbangable riffs.
Pelican: same as above but less headbanggery
That covers most of the main bands, People will surely add some others. Give us a shout if you want more recs for post-metal.
|Defs check out Rosetta, they're one of my favourite bands. |
Also, have a listen to Eleventh He Reaches London. They're kind of what you'd get if you combined Brand New with Isis. But they still sound totally unique. You can get their latest album free and legally, the links in my review of them.
