|Give me some suggestions based on these.|
|whoah 5 days...you're ancient. you have some tastes similar to mine, so i could give you a huge list of recs but im too tired...but right now i've been digging The Midnight Organ Flight by Frightened Rabbit and Bright Eyes in general|
|Watch the sarcasm! haha i'll check those two out.|
|Not expecting the indie folk stuff sowingseason. It takes me a little longer to get into stuff like this. I got both. Interesting|
|its not stuff i normally get into either its kind of a phase. |
alright here's some real sowing-like recs:
-a perfect circle/puscifer/tool (anything by maynard james keenan)
-keane (their first 2 albums only, and only if you like piano-rock)
-minus the bear
-BATS (if you like post hardcore stuff)
probably know about most of these already but thats just from glancing up and down my most played list
|1 and 3 ftw. 4 is also great. |
|5 is totally mediocre. get kezia, it's a lot better|
Bomb the Music Industry! - ADULTS!!!, Album Minus Band and Scrambles
Thrice - Vhiessu
Strike Anywhere - Iron Front and their debut.
|If you like Protest the Hero, you should check out: |
-The rest of PTH's catalog
-Between the Buried and Me (all albums are good but "Colors", "Alaska", and "The Silent Circus" are favorites)
-The Human Abstract ("Nocturne" is FAR better than "Midheaven", but both are worth a look)
-I Am Abomination (Both albums are solid, heavy electronic influence)
-The Fall of Troy (Much more spastic and chaotic, but features Rody of PTH on the new album. Also "Phantom on the Horizon" is their best, followed by "Doppelgänger", "Manipulator", self-titled, and the mediocre "In the Unlikely Event".
General recommendations not necessarily PTH related:
-Periphery-AMAZING band that sounds a lot like Meshuggah (who I despise) but with a lot more melody, singing, and top-notch songwriting. Like PTH every member is virtuosic at his instrument
-Woe of Tyrants-Heavy Death Metal band that sounds more like classic death metal than most bands today-great, catchy guitar lines, especially on "Kingdom of Might"
-Closure in Moscow-Both albums are great progressive rock with a jazz/funk influence. Excellent guitar lines abound here.
-Dance Gavin Dance-Amazing vocals (on "Downtown Battle Mountain" more so than the others), catchy songs, semi-technical guitar/drum playing, BRILLIANT songwriting. Post-hardcore with an increasingly heavy jazz influence. Check them out for sure.
|Sorry for the double post, I forgot to mention Opeth, who you are sure to encounter if you stick around Sputnik long enough as everyone here loves, or professes, to love them. Their best album, IMO, is "Blackwater Park", though "Ghost Reveries" would be a good starting point as well. Sorry agian for the double post.|

|In three words:|
'Relationship of Command' (At The Drive-In)

Billy Talent - 'Billy Talent'
Manchester Orchestra - 'Mean Everything To Nothing'
