    So, I love music, but it took a while for me to appreciate it a lot, so right now i'm stuck in a place where I have a good amount of band i listen to, but not enough to keep me interested for long, and I'm not sure where to start looking. So, the kind of things I like: I like medium-fast paced songs, especially if they're in a minor key, and I like it when the guitar is fast and continuous for the most part and, obviously, the bass should be good. None of these are rules, and obviously im open to any suggestions. I know a lot of 60s-70s music, so if its from that period i likely know the band, so im looking for newer music. Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Muse, and more are some of my favorite bands. Sorry for the long description, i tend to overdo the explaining a bit, but yeah, please suggest stuff, i need more music.

    Gave em a listen, all pretty good, Trombone shorty isn't really the kind of thing i would listen to normally, and the music was great in Animals as Leaders, but i like lyrics. I really like Red though, just the thing I was looking for, i hope people keep em coming

    This doesn't really fit into your description, but I'd like to suggest "Flying Colors." It's sort of a super group comprised of: Steve Morse and Dave LaRue (Dixie Dregs), Neal Morse (Formally of Spock's Beard), Mike Portnoy (Formally of Dream Theater), and Casey McPherson.

    Normally, super groups are quite disappointing to me. But this is by far my favorite album of 2012. It's not a bunch of musicians showing off their skillz. The songs are really good.

    And you can get it at Best Buy.

    I thought red would be the best bet there just due to looking at the music you like.

    Hmmmm.... Type some of those artist into a pandora station. That would work pretty well I think.

    Don't really know anyone way too similar to Red. Glad you like em.

    I already am a fan of the raconteurs, i recently had a flashback to the song steady as she goes and ive been hooked ever since, and i also knew of Dead Weather. These bands are good, but i was looking for something more intense, these songs are more either slow paced or they sound like oldies almost. Sorry to be so picky

  11. “Michigan's Genocya play raw and brutal metal worthy of their economically blasted home state. This is as up front and subtle as a Detroit Teamster confronting scabs on the picket line. The dudes purvey a sound that kind of wobbles between pure American death metal and more groove based thrash. Lemme put it this way, "Ever Descent" is a record that fans of both Malevolent Creation and Lamb of God can agree on. I hear traces of both those acts here, but also Slayer, Overkill, Skinless.”

    Some of the best music out there, IMO:

    Tell me what you think about it!

    Are you in to power metal? My current ride has no iPod jack and a 6 disc changer so I have been revisiting some old CDs and been enjoying Galneryus "One for All - All for One" disc, it is from 2007 so I guess it is not that new now that I think about it...

    I should mention they are Japanese and not everything is in english.

    I have been enjoying Jolly, I don't think they are on a major label though, a TBer wanted me to tab a song of theirs, pretty tight current styled prog rock tuned to C. Cannot remember the name of their record for the life of me.
