1. In The Woods... - 35 plays
Another great band that defies just one genere of classification. Avant-garde is what they're labeled as, and I guess that's appropriate. Really good stuff, been listening to all their albums. Pretty dark at times, and the female clean singing with male 'screaming'(I don't know what to make of those vocals :P) and clean singing.
2. Minor Threat - 26 plays
THE classic hardcore punk band. Fast songs with some of that good old 80s punk singing. been listening to 'Complete Discography', which is one compliation album full of their songs. Good stuff.
3. Becoming the Archetype - 24 plays
OMG, a metalcore band I actually like! :P Listening to this band for the first time surpirsed me, as I thought they were going to be some generic metalcore garbage, but wow, they sure aren't. Beneath the metalcore they have trappings of progressive, thrash, and even some death. Haven't been this enamored with a metalcore band since I first listened to Between the Buried and Me. Awesome, awesome stuff.
4. Estatic Fear - 20 plays
Yeah, Estatic Fear is my favorite doom metal band. Hands down. The music they make is utterly beautiful. Utilizing female vocals, high and low pitched male growling(in my mind, black and death :P), and beautiful instrumentation, they really have created the some of the most amazing music I've listened to. They only have two albums, which is a shame. Been listening to those two, and while both are great, the second is what I mostly listen to. Every doom metal fan should check them out.
5. Cynic - 17 plays
Cynic is pretty addictive. I just have to give their album a random listen sometimes. All around amazing stuff.
6. Of the Wand and the Moon - 17 plays
Now this is a great band. Of the Wand and the Moon is an one-man neofolk project. Pretty mellow stuff,and vocals are pretty eerie, as they're mostly whispered or the such. Haunting, but beautiful.
7. Benefit - 16 plays
Benefit is pretty good hip-hop artist. Another good underground white rapper :P Don't have much else to say, need to listen to his only album again.
8. Falkenbach - 15 plays
Yay for Falkenbach. Great folk metal that I'm just drawn to, just way too good :).
9. Kalmah - 15 plays
Kalmah is another band is keep listening to randomly, that new album is just amazing.
10. Therion - 13 plays
Therion is symphonic metal band I just listened to for the first time this past week. They're decent, should listen to them a bit more so I can get a better judgement of them.
