|12 Bands I've Found My Love For In The Past Year|
The growth in my musical journey has been insane in rrthe past year, so I rthought I'd make a list of the rbest bands I've rdiscovered and/or realized my rlove rfor in the past year.
I had always heard they were one of the greatest bands of all time. And I really
song "Time". But in the past year, I discovered why some people consider Pink Floyd
band ever. That album stretch from Dark Side of the Moon to The Wall (and I
quite like The
Final Cut even) is some of the greatest musical work ever.
Tool has been my favorite band for a long time, and I had never really bothered
out the bands they say influenced them. I decided to, and discovered Genesis.
Nursery Cryme - A Trick of the Tail, another amazing stretch of albums. "The
will forever have a place in my heart as the song that truly got me into Prog.
Always heard them, thought they were just one of those "classic" bands that
overrated. I was wrong. Led Zeppelin is fantastic, influential, and just... well
much that has not already been said.
It took a while for them to grow on me. But damn. One of the most diverse,
mixtures of style, and they make it work. Mikael Akerfeldt is an unfairly
Been obsessed with these guys since I discovered them.
Many fans of Opeth are bound to stumble upon PT eventually. I'm glad I did. They
much easier to listen to than most prog, which is a nice change of pace.
Way out of the way of pretty much everything else on this list. Yes. I like
they're immature, have 394568 members, and I don't care. Sometimes it's nice to
mindlessly headbang and scream your head off about nothing in particular. I
what people say about Slipknot, it's about the music, and I like this music.
Not done yet with all of the classic Prog rock bands. Yes has one of the
original sounds I've heard in a long time. They may have their pretentious
maybe a little more than some other progressive rock bands, but I can enjoy a
their stuff, especially their early 70's stuff. They're good if you have some
time to sit
back and just soak in a nice long adventure of a song.
|8||The Dear Hunter|
I may be in the honeymoon stage with this band. I only discovered them maybe a
month ago, but wow I fell in love. The hype leading up tot he release of Migrant
what caught my attention. And just wow, what a lucky find, because these guys
not very popular, for some reason. There's just nothing I dislike about this
can be upbeat and happier sounding, or melancholy, or silly. I could see The
Hunter becoming one of my top 10 favorite bands of all time.
It's hard for me to truly love King Crimson. They have masterpieces, but they
to full blown experimental sometimes that I just can't enjoy listening to, and
lowers the quality of their good albums. Songs like Moonchild and Providence
bug me. But that's not to say I don't like King Crimson overall, obviously
they're on this
list because they're awesome.
|10||Queens of the Stone Age|
I borrowed Songs For The Deaf from a family member out of curiosity because I
Dave Grohl had been doing some stuff with them, and it turns out they're as good
other band Dave Grohl has been associated with. Song For The Deaf is a fantastic
and Rated R is pretty good, and while I have't necessarily listened to every
song of theirs,
I really do like them, and I can't wait for their new album.
|11||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
Like Led Zeppelin, this is another band I never really gave a chance to. After
and getting to know Blood Sugar Sex Magik, I was hooked. Easy to listen to,
sometimes annoying, just good.
Aside from Pearl Jam, I was never into grunge. Soundgarden is very similar to
Pearl Jam, so
it was easy for me to get into them, and I'm glad I did.
|Damn those random r's that show up it in the description.|
|i've fallen in love with 8 recently as well. 1 and 12 have given the world some true gems, especially Superunknown and Wish You Were Here|
|6 seems so out of place....|
|@ViralOblivion yeah I know! I'm glad I can enjoy a variety of music.|
|One of these things is not like the other!|
|Yes, yes I know.|
|decent list but the userbase has gotten worse damn sup trebs|
|yes branch out like trebor he has so many branches he can go from alkaline trio to streetlight to defeater in just seconds!|
|What do you mean branch out? That's what this list is showing.|
|If you want to mindlessly head bang and scream about shit, listen to hardcore instead. At least it's good|
|there are like 3 bands on here that aren't prog, that's what they mean. But it's cool, because prog is da best. Check out Minus the Bear|
|Check out Minus the Bear |
Don't even touch their last two records though
|sg arent really that similar to pj|
|"yes branch out like trebor he has so many branches he can go from alkaline trio to streetlight to defeater in just seconds!"|
|Slipknot are underrated|
|Yeah, Minus the Bear we're great but something happened and they don't like to jam anymore|
|King's X and AiC. The End. /fanboyism|
|Just because I've been discovering a lot of prog in the past year doesn't mean that's all I listen to.|
|the natural progression for a music listener is to check out he bands that inspired the bands who you love.|
so basically check out Camel
|These are all pretty basic. Props on the Opeth, though. You're headed in the right direction.|
|good stuff, im currently digging most of those bands|
|@InbredJed I totally missed Camel. I've been digging them this past year as well.|
|It's hard for me to truly love King Crimson. They have masterpieces, but they venture to full blown experimental sometimes that I just can't enjoy listening to |
fukin stupid band agreed
