  • Band Recommendations

    This sounds like a good idea- post lesser known bands that you like, along with a short description of them, just to introduce others to new bands.

    Wolfchant- a badass German folk metal band.

    Blue Oyster Cult

    If you're into Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and the 70's "heavy metal" bands.

    Had a strong run through the 70's till early 80's.

    Heavy, blues boogie through to doo wop.

    The thinking man's "metal" band.

      Wo Fat - chunky style stoner jams from Dallas, Tx. Start with "Riffborn" from their latest and then check out "Lost Highway" from The Black Code

      Master (as in Мастер) - Great Russian heavy metal, like Anthrax met Nuclear Assault and then hid from the NSA in Moscow. Try "Bulldozer" (Бульдозер). Yes, it's in Russian. Turns out, you can totally rock out in Russian, even if you don't speak it!

      And, if you haven't tried them out yet... DEEP PURPLE. What are you waiting for, kid? Just ask your old man, he'll tell you it's good stuff! Just watch out for the Mk2 re-re-reunion, it's kinda patchy there. And I wouldn't start with Bananas, either. Get you Machine Head, Purpendicular, or a greatest hits collection and enjoy.

        I love Blue Oyster Cult. They write such powerful songs.

          Awesome!
          I commend you.

          One thing that was great about them (like 70's KISS) was that four out of five guys in the band would could sing lead, and they all wrote- so you get a real nice variety.
          A terribly underrated band.

            A word of caution on Blue Oyster Cult lyrics... don't try too hard to understand them. If they're using a word that you don't understand, don't go looking it up. It'll really twist up that song for you... I was once cautioned by one who knew better and I had to be hard-headed and go find out... if I had only heeded his caution!

            Best BOC: Tyranny and Mutation / Secret Treaties... and if you buy the MP3s, go to a used vinyl place and pick up the album covers so you can stare at them on your beanbag chair while you jam out and relive the "child of the seventies" experience.

                Riot - I've posted about them before but their first 3 LP's with Guy Speranza on vocals (Rock City, Narita, Fire Down Under)are pure classics - the later LP's all have some great stuff on it especially the Tony Moore & Rhett Forester Eras.

                        Bump, this thread died rather quickly. Any Al Jorgensen fans here? Ministry, Revolting Cocks etc?

                          Orange Goblin is a great band, I can hear a lot of Sabbath in their music, I recommend them.

                            Black Sabbath cannot exist without these Individuals in the lineup: Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Ozzy Osbourne or Ronnie James Dio or Ian Gillan.

                              Sure thing Ted, trying to feel my way around the board without stirring up any shit. Im gonna advocate for brother Wayne Kramer of MC5 fame. He released some great albums in the 90s. Check out the album The Hard Stuff its a rock n roll ass kicking
