Post em if ya got em. My top 3 atm.
Adelaide-based grandoise prog/alt rock with a distinct metal edge. They opened for Opeth; should tell y'all something. Think maybe Karnivool mixed with Porcupine Tree, and add in one hell of a vocalist. Recommended tracks: The Cold Halls, Ocean of Silhouettes.
|2||4th Wall City|
Flight of the Raven
Western Sydney alternative hip-hop duo. Influences from El-P to Rage Against the Machine. Mainly political/cultural based lyricism, with a unique Aussie twist to it. Also sparing alt-metal (Deftones-esque) influences. Recommended tracks: The Raven, Armour
|3||Between the Devil and the Deep|
What a find. Local Sydney melodic/post-hardcore act. In their own words, Refused/At The Drive-In/Fugazi by way of Defeater and Modern Life Is War. No need for autotune or poppy choruses here, guys. Just searing, in your face emotion. Recommended tracks: Souvenirs, God Hates the New Facebook.
|Plan to review all three of these when I get around to it. Underground/local music has some real gems. Open to recs, guys. Rep your favourites!|
|not much to say here in my hometown, but we got some kick ass metal bands here in Portugal like Sirius, Echidna. i think they're both from Lisbon|
|In terms of Brisbane bands, probably Fires of Waco (RIP), Quiet Steps, We Set Sail, Nuclear Summer and Travels. Other Australian bands would be The Smith Street Band, Milhouse, Toy Boats and Let Me Down Jungleman.|
|3 is so awesome live|
|The only local bands around here are lolcore. They all suck. |
|Hero For The Weak- Hero For The Weak|
^local band from my friend's home town that he keeps trying to force me to listen to
|Have some really decent post-hardcore here in Northern Illinois. There's this band called A Sound Heart.|
Drowning Horse, Warthreat, Suffer, Negative Reinforcement, Helta Skelta, Mental Powers, Golden Staph, Frozen Ocean, Rabbit's Island, Abe Sada, Lie Cycle, Astral Travel, Bamodi, smRTs, Javier Frisco, Water Temple, Craig McElhinney, Grief Contest, prob more but I can't remember right now
|Yeah, I'd definitely recommend seeing these three bands live if you can. I'll definitely check out some of the others people have mentioned too.|
On tour right now, really close friends of mine.
The singer is my guitarist's brother, all really talented musicians.
Met/watched these guys through Tir Asleen. Glad to see they've gotten some attention on here.
|Hostage Calm, The Flaming Tsunamis and Make Do and Mend are all from CT|
dunno if that counts
