I like the latest Cave In a lot - some screaming (they used to be a hardcore band), but not a whole lot. Good melodic rawk. How heavy are you willing to go? I love everything Devin Townsend does - his solo stuff and the Devin Townsend Band is a little more coherent than Strapping Young Lad. The new Mastodon is kickass, too. For cool instrumental stuff, Isis and Explosions in the Sky has new CDs, too
If I knew more bout your tastes I could throw some names atcha. I'm single so all I spend my money on is porn and music.
Another big up for Devin Townsend- he's my favourite artist of all time- everything he has done is not just great, it's astonishing.
Also can recommend Clutch.
Therapy?'s High Anxiety is dating back to 2004 and is excellent- I'm not a fan of their work since returning to a 3 piece though.
Lamb of God are cool.
Eagles of Death Metal.
Anything by Opeth.
Helmet's Size Matters is great- Monochrome isn't nearly as good.
"... and you will know us by the trail of dead" are a cool band- maybe a bit emo-prog for ya though :-)
Dillinger Escape Plan are a great math-core band
Fall of Troy are interesting too.
On another note- how much does the new Ozzy Osbourne suck?
Terrible, terrible album.
i happen to love them. and i am truly a classic rock guy at heart...curious what you think james...as well as anyone else.
also...CLUTCH.....always rocks hard imho. their last record was done with baressi...and its pretty rad !!
anxious for the QOTSA myself...really want to like alterbridge...I LOVED the singer (Miles) when he was in MAYFIELD FOUR. (have you heard that band ? WOW !!!)
check out king thief...i may be a bit biased...but I think they are a great new band...plus they actually have a KILLER live show...whether in front of a few thousand people or 5o people in a club..they rock !!
peace...and good luck on the search for the rock !!
