Your favorite bands that no one has heard of?
« on: April 01, 2018, 11:03:10 pm »
This is the 2018 edition of a thread made way back in the day by riotgirl. It was really popular but it is old so here is a new one!

The band can't be linkin park popular, but at the same time the band can have a fandom you know? So do not worry about it too much!

I will start it off with 2 bands.

First, Electric Six! They had a few novelty meme type hits that aren't their better songs just out of comedic value, with their best stuff remaining on the obscure side. Huge cult following though. Bizarre blend of countless genres all with total nonsense lyrics.

Second, KMFDM. Industrial band I loved as a kid. Definitely a band that many people may have heard of, and heavily influential in certain circles, but never had mainstream success almost by choice (had a feud with MTv back when it was that or nothing). Personal favorite song is Anarchy, but won't link it here because of language/objectionable content. Instead, linked song is Ultra, probably their best known song in the 90's except maybe Juke Joint Jezebel(which was on Mortal Kombat movie soundtrack, which despite being the soundtrack to a video game movie was crazy successful and chart topping since it was a crazy good compilation of Industrial, hard rock, etc. songs from major 90s bands in the genres like Stabbing Westward, Type-O Negative, and Gravity Kills).

I mean I could make a list of orchestras that create totally epic music but you asked for band so I found this one guy, not that long ago that I found I really loved. It seems when I try to show other people they get upset from his voice but I grew to actually really like it.
The music is like a rock/orchestra combo which is just so freakin' cool for me.
Oh yeah, the name is Major Voice btw.

But not only do I love the music, I found him through the music videos and I just LOVE these videos so much. The style is amazing, I know plenty of people will disagree with me but for me, this is really great.

Nightwish. I'm kind of amazed how few people have heard of this band. Although since they're from Finland, I guess I'm not surprised most people outside Europe have never heard of them.

I am into them in a big way at the moment. Floor, the lead singer, is like my idol, haha.

This female German group has been out for quite some time, but almost nobody seems to know about them.

If anyone remember Little Angels from early 90's then the new band Wayward Sons is great


Also


Very old one
This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud
It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
It's my life

Fixed your link.  :)

Yep, them and the Cherry Poppin Daddies were pretty popular back in the late 90s/early 00s.

There some good stuff posted on here.  A week plus ago during my commute to work I was listening to The Shape or Rock radio show (which plays post rock, post metal, and other forms of experimental rock [though I avoid the radio program's opening song by Buckethead - "The Shape vs Buckethead" like the plague, since I find that song to be unbearably stupid]), on WMSE (the college radio station of the Milwaukee School of Engineering - the music they play is seriously eclectic, and you can download different radio show broadcasts, if you want to listen to them).  The show was playing some seriously cool music, much of which I was hearing for the first time.  As a longtime musician (I've been playing guitar for over 40 years, and still get my band fix once a week playing in a local church band), whose always looking for new music to listen to, I started checking out post rock and post metal bands, which led me to discovering Caspian.  This is a live session the did on the Audiotree show 3 years ago.  Like much post rock and post metal, the music (with the exception of the third song) is instrumental.

HRT Since 1999

Orchiectomy in July 2001
