Interesting Musical Evolutions

Tell me about bands or music artists that went through some interesting changes and evolutions in their musical carriers. Maybe give a short summary of the crucial points of your example.
Define the Great Line

underoath. they had it in them, but they went from decent, lame, to good. can't think of much bands that went from pop-punkcore "just for teenagers" jams to good metalcore.
- Relinquished

i agree that Underoath had quite the evolution, but you are actually missing an even bigger part of their story. they started out as death / black metal / metalcore on their debut "Act of Depression", and another album after titled "Cries of the Past". at this time, they had a very raw and aggressive sound. they didn't start incorporating the "pop-punkcore" until their third release "The Changing of Times".
- MotokoKusanagi
2Fall of Efrafa

Fall of Efrafa. Their first, Owsla, was a primarily crust-influenced affair, but then they went to Elil which brought a few of the crust influences in with post-metal stylings. Finally, Inle almost does away completely with the crust, and is a mixture of post-metal and doom, really.
- AaronIsCrunchy

- DinosaurJones

Thrice:Emo/ Hardcore punk->Melodic hardcore->Post hardcore->Art/Experimental rock->Alternative rock. Although, when they started playing rock they still had some hardcore elements.
- Royl123
Distant Satellites

Anathema - doom-->miserable Floyd prog-->Radiohead rock-->new age positive orchestral rock
- DoofusWainwright

doom death --> alternative rock (and many things in between)
- RikRoach7
5Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost - gothic doom-->doomy Metallica-->depeche mode pop rock-->slowly reverse back to their roots
- DoofusWainwright

basically CamiloG wrote a bigass paragraph that does not fit in the album description so just check it in the comments
7Brand New
The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me

brand new maybe?
- bagof4grapes
13-kai wa Gekkou

BUCK-TICK - Pop Punk/New Wave -->Visual Kei mix of Goth Rock and New Wave-->Arena Rock/Goth Rock-->Cyberpunk-->Goth Rock again although far more atmospheric and theatrical--->Pop Rock Revival
- CalculatingInfinity
9The Grateful Dead
American Beauty

MotokoKusanagi wrote a longass paragraph down there
Shadows of the Sun

Ulver changes genre with every record, from folk to black metal to electronic to ambient to vegetarian progressive grindcore
- magicuba

don't think it's necessary to further explain this one.
- RikRoach7

Ulver for sure
- Keyblade
11Beastie Boys
Ill Communication

beasty boys
- LapisLazuli
12Animal Collective
Strawberry Jam

another long paragraph that does not fit from wtferrothorn
Hot in the Shade

- Titan
Back in Black

- BandNewbac
(im pretty sure he thinks hes funny)

- manosg

The first band that sprung to mind was Burzum. I mean the s/t to filosofem in what 18 months? that's insane haha.
- romulanrancor
16Talk Talk
Laughing Stock

generic synth pop --> post rock pioneers
- RikRoach7

Talk Talk definitely
- MrSirLordGentleman
Soulside Journey

Death metal --> Black metal
- insanedrexl1
(that progression tho)

went from making synthpop to making EBM (Electric Body Music) to making industrial metal to making thrash/industrial metal...
- ArsMoriendi
19Pink Floyd
The Piper at the Gates of Dawn

floyd went from a blues jam band to a psychedelic pop to experimental to prog to art album rock
- guitarded_chuck
The Magic Whip

Baggy/Shoegaze>Britpop>Grungy Britpop>Ambient Pop>Afrobeat
- MonotoneMop
One Big Particular Loop

Oceana went from a Post-Hardcore/Metalcore sound to an Experimental Radiohead-esque direction after changing their name to Polyenso. I thought that was quite the flip
- manicmonkey
22Protest the Hero

Protest the Hero went from okay politically charged metal to the kind of wankery mathcore we all know and love today within like 2 years because when they were writing Kezia they intentionally wrote outside their then-present skill level in a push to better themselves
- MyNameIsPencil
23Black Sabbath
Heaven and Hell

Doom Metal -> Prog/Heavy Metal -> NWOBHM
- MrSirLordGentleman
24The Beatles
Magical Mystery Tour

- zakalwe
Kid A

- zakalwe
26Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

BRMC - Jesus and Marychain types on their debut to acoustic bluesy rock on their 3rd album Howl then same old same old.
- zakalwe
Metal Magic

So there's this band called Pantera...
- TheMagicalBlender
28Rise Against
Revolutions per Minute

I'm gonna say Rise Against. First couple of records were hardcore punk, but then they started to introduce a bit of alternative rock and radio rock to create a fairly unique sound which lead to two fantastic albums. Then they decided that they'd practically do away with punk as a musical style and go full radio rock. Most recent album saw them re-introduce screams and other bits from their earlier albums, so maybe they'll go full circle at one point? I hope so.
- Sinternet
Behind the Sun

Starting as stoner rock, shifting to hard rock then to prog then pop rock then alt rock, and experimental.
- Riviere
Snake Bite Love

- manosg
(this gets old)

Xysma is a good one, from goregrind to dm to death n roll to rock to pop
and it all rules
- Keyblade
