Default Your Recommendations

Come to this thread when you feel like finding some new and exciting bands.
What you do is post some bands you like. Then someone who has some suggestions can come along and recommend them to you.

For example, I post:

I'd like some suggestions for bands with similar music to Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam. If anyone can help me out?

And then as people are flicking through the thread they see your post and can go:

Well judging by that you want to check out Alice In Chains and the Meat Puppets. If you like those I'll recommend you some more later on.

Hopefully this will be a quickfire way to find great music off other people.
So we'll give it a whirl.

Oh and no bitching if you disagree with someone elses suggestion. It will be upto the enquirer to decide if it was useful or not. Have fun

Nice Idea

I want to find some bands similar to Opeth, but I don't know much at all about Death Metal. Any suggestions?

If you are looking for some music that sounds like Brittany Spears:

Try: Strife, Mayhem, Gorgasm
enjoy

Agalloch.
Katatonia.
Spiritual Beggars.

See if you can find any of them. I don't personally know what they're like, I've just heard they are for people who like Opeth.

Add Farmakon to that list. Their resemblance to Opeth is uncanny at times, but they still have their own little niche.
