Alright, this isn't to say that a lot of you haven't heard of these guys, but from what I see in here is a lot of "Oh, I <3 Seether and A7X. Oh, what about Bodom?"

Sure, all great bands, I won't deny, but I'm here to try and open you up to some rarely spoken of bands. Some people might benefit from this, lol.


Metal & Rock Bands:


Black Metal: Dimmu Borgir:

A very dark, dark band. Great death metal.

Dimmu Borgir - Hybrid Stigmata



Progressive Metal: Dream Theater

A very meaningful band. A story in every song. Also has the greatest guitarist ever.

Dream Theater- Fatal Tragedy



Progressive Rock: Kamelot

A band with an old "Medieval" feel to them. This song here actually stars the screamer from Dimmu Borgir.

KAMELOT - March Of Mephisto



Techno/Emo/Screamo/Metal: Attack Attack!

This is a great band. Love them to death.

02 Attack Attack! - Stick Stickly




Rock/Metal: Tool

I'm sure many of you know about Tool. They're a great, calming and ambient band.

Tool - Schism






Rap/Hip-Hop Bands


Flobots:

We all know of their hit-single, "Handlebars", but do we ever check out their other awesome music? They do exactly as their name says. Flow.

Flobots - Stand Up



Emo/Screamo



I Set My Friends On Fire:

Most of you have probably heard of these guys before as well. Extreme screaming band. Psychotic feel.

I Set My Friends On Fire - But The NUNS Are Watching WITH LYRICS




The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus:

I KNOW most of you have heard of them. I just love them and they deserve a spot here anyhow.

Red Jumpsuit Apparatus-Atrophy




Circle Takes the Square:

Extreme screaming for the most part. Just a good screamo band.

Circle Takes The Square - Interview At The Ruins






Techno



Celldweller:

AMAZING Techno/Screamo artist. Simply one of my favorite people to ever listen to.

Celldweller - The Last Firstborn




Pendulum:

I'm sure many of you have heard Pendulum before. Pretty great techno band, they are.

pendulum - hold your colour




Dubstep



Benga:

One of the best dubstep artists out there. Amazing stuff.

Benga - 26 Basslines



Babylon System:

Babylon System - Examination of Time



Chase and Status:

[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzRaYFCZpPo]Chase and Status - Eastern Jam



For now that's all I feel I need to share.

Let me know if anybody likes anybody new they might see here.

I'll probably update this over time.

Ahh, I did forget Xandria! Her vocals are godly. I've never heard of edguy.

Symphony X is actually pretty known, however. And I, perosnally, never got into Blind Guardian. :p

It's amazing some of the bands I used to listen to and soon forgot all about them, I'm glad you posted this. Did you go to warped tour this summer?

I've honestly never been to a tour/concert in my life.

I never have the money. I would love to at some point, though.

Honestly i've fallen in love with KAMELOT.

Some of my favourites.

Rock: TRAPT (everyone knows them) and BuckCherry (a little less known. Also, for those of you that have seen my child abuse thread in the mature section. I'll be putting a link up for Buckcherry's song "a child called it". The lead singer read the book and felt that he needed to make a song of it.)

Easy Listning: Sting, NickleCreek

Country (only one artist because i really dont like this genre) Carrie Underwood <3

If you like electronic music and you want to get off the beaten path a bit, you should look up an artist named Sabrepulse. He is mostly an 8 bit artist, but he has some other stuff too.

Mink,

It looks like you and I would be able to really enjoy some time driving around in the car and listening to the same music. I'm pretty surprised that you mentioned Wolfsheim -- I still regret that they're no longer together, and that their separation was such a damned messy one.

the bands you have mentoined has actually become quite mainstream, atleast Tool,Dimmu Borgir, atleast in that scene. It becomes mainstream you know the bigger it gets.
Its like the psytrance band Infected Mushroom, they used to be a band no one had heard of, but then after a couple of records they have become mainstream(and ofcourse sell outs also making their music radio friendly/ruining their style)

Tool's been mainstream since I was a teenager...

Exactly, they were also very mainstream when my sister was a teenager. But you know many bands posted here has already become mainstream. Every successfull band will get mainstream and they will start selling out eventually, just look at Infected Mushroom if you want a modern example.
