Even with such limited equipment they make such good music. Awesome !

    The Fall of Troy

    Genre: Progessive Rock
    Status: Holding out, taking a break after the next batch of touring and then heading back to the studio
    Lyrical themes: Sex (not in an obvious way), broken relationships (without sounding whiny)
    Vox: Thomas Erak, Tim Ward
    Guitar: Thomas Erak
    Drums: Andrew Forsman
    Bass: Tim Ward

    Best tracks: Rockstar Nailbomb!, The Last March of the Ents (awesome track about war), F.C.P.S.I.T.S.G.E.P.G.E.P.G.E.P. (slower track about dying and leaving people behind; the track title is actually a joke and stands for **** Condoms, Pre-marital Sex Is The Shit: Get 'Em Pregnant, Get 'Em Pregnant, Get 'Em Pregnant!), all of their Ghostship tracks (which'll be part of their next concept album), What Sound Does A Mastodon Make?, Macaulay McCulkin and Tom Waits (title for this one was another joke, because Tom Waits had a song called The Fall of Troy).

    Trio (you wouldn't guess by listening to their stuff) hailing from Mukilteo, WA. All the members are very young, and are really talented for 20-21 year olds. And I mean it. Thomas Erak's father used to be a session guitarist for The Eagles. The band's been together since they were all fifteen years old under the name Thirty Years War and released two EPs: Martyrs Among The Casualties and a live one entitled Live at the Paradox. About a year later, they lost a guitarist and agreed on changing their name. Like they did for TYW, they basically just opened up a history book and pointed a finger at a name until they found something suitable, and eventually picked The Fall of Troy.

    In 2003 (they were 17-18 years old back then), they recorded their first self-titled LP on Lujo Records. It featured very mathy and complicated guitar and bass-play as well as amazing support drumming from Forsman. Unfortunately, with an indie label comes indie production. They also released a four song demo entitled The Ghostship Demos featuring songs for a later concept album about a spanish galleon and their encounter with a ghostship. Later in 2005, they were picked up by Equal Vision and asked to re-record some of their old songs. They came out with Doppelgänger, a semi-concept album featuring 4 songs from their S/T and seven new songs, which was critically acclaimed by various reviewers from all sorts of genres.

    What makes them gold is their live shows. They're simply amazing, and with Erak's loop pedal, he actually can pull off the multi-layered guitars we hear on the records. Often, in between tracks, they play a bit of improv.

    More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fall_of_Troy; http://www.thefalloftroy.com/about/

    I really, really, really recommend this band to people if you can take the screaming in songs (do note: this is by no means an "emo" band; the screams are not out of place, they infact sound passionate and...somewhat crazy? Very fitting for their lyrical content and song themes). Also, I may be bashed for this in the future, but Tom Erak may very well be the new Hendrix.

    Dodge
    They are a good sounding swedish metal band that I place way up there with Soilwork, In Flames, and Scar Symmetry. They sing and do that sort of cool yelling thing that I don't really call a scream or anything. It's like a yelling singing thing.
    I found them at www.purevolume.com/dodge

    That place leads to their website and other links. It has 3 entire songs with great quality. That www.purevolume.com website is a great place to hear samples of songs from bands, and it has a lot of bands.

    I also found Barman at www.purevolume.com/berman
    They are like Hoobastank, except they don't suck. I mainly like the songs Perfect, Fall off the Earth, Lost Angeles, Life in the Stars, and Paint the Sky or whatever it was called. They're few newer songs on the site sounded kinda boring and too laid back for me though.

    And I ran into a band that's most likely permanently dead, but they reminded me of an exact mix of Static-X + Misery Loves Co. www.purevolume.com/bitterman

    It's a great website, try it out.

    I do like that Dragonforce band Mr. Chris.
    I laugh at Sublime. I have a friend who's obesessed about them. They sound like some weird Jamaican Mexican stereotype thing. They're annoying and weird, singing stuff like "If it weren't for date rape I'd never get laid" in that date rape song in some weird comedy way.

    rnNice watch. Is this type of band also the 192mm one with an extractable spring clasp? I find that quite comfortable.

    Wow, I remember how I listened to that band years ago and nobody knew who the hell they were. Then guitar hero came along and all of the sudden 500 fanboys started creaming their pants about how much they loved dragonforce.

    For some reason, I haven't enjoyed their music in years...

    The music is pretty laid back and chilled out, mostly due to Travis Morrison's vocals, but was surprisingly different to anything I'd heard at the time. Some of the more recent stuff by other bands sounds pretty similar. One of the songs off Bloc Party's Silent Alarm seemed to remind me a hell of a lot of something off Changes, so it was fairly ahead of its time.

    REDALiCE
    (releases under his labels ALiCE'S EMOTION and HARDCORE TANO*C)
    Myspace (English): http://www.myspace.com/redalicejp


    Origin: Tokyo
    Gerne : Doujincore
    Status : Very much active

    He is best known for his remix of the Lucky Star theme. Unfortunately, his work is not available for the most part outside of Japan. His music is similar to Happy Hardcore, and often contains vocals (both real and vocaloid). Most of his solo releases are remixes of other Touhou and Doujinshi inspired tracks.

    Some favorites (note that even in 480p, the quality is shit compared to the cd/digital download versions):
    Taboo Tears You Up
    Macrocosm (Collaboration with kazuma)
    Drill Smasher
    Deadline
    Thalia
    Accelerator (Collaboration with Tsukasa)
    North Blue Sky
    Locked Girl

    Ah I know REDALiCE. First encountered his songs on the Project Anarchy DDR Packs.
    Really produced some good stuff, although I find Vocaloid rather disturbing.

    Alek Száhala
    http://alek.szahala.com/

    Origin: Helsinki, Finland
    DOB: 4 April 1982
    Genre: Freeform hardcore/NRG
    Status: Active

    Alek started producing music in 1993 using PC-running trackers. First of his tracks were uploaded into various BBSes under such nicks as BwD, Apofis, Apokala and Apofish. His tracks during early 90's were mainly humorous stuff with lots of samples from various cartoons. He also made lots of co-operations with jazz musician Teemu Vehkala.

    He continued to produce music until 2003, where he was noticed by various Finnish harddance DJ's and promoters. Later that year, he performed his first live set at Säde club, and signed his first record contract from Electronica Exposed. He consistently continued to increase his reputation, through vinyl releases by Camel Records, Finrg and EE. His hit tracks, "Ngarnuuk" and "Man eaten", also appeared on one of DJ Proteus' mixtapes "The Hellfire Club" released by Teflon Bullet. Alongside with Carbon Based, Re-form, Epilim and Pain on Creation, he became one of the key members in the development of Finnish hard dance sound. His music varies from very melodic trance to dark, fast and evil freeform. He has performed at such events as Godspeed and Utopia (Sydney), Mayhem 2005, 2006 and 2007 (Brisbane), Pharmacy (Melbourne), Logic (London), NRGetic Romancer (Tokyo), Koneisto and Konemetsä, Finland's leading electronic music festivals.

    Alek currently studies computational linguistics and computer science at the University of Helsinki.

    I've had this band's logo as my avatar for everything ever so I might as well post in here...

    Trivium

    Genre: Thrash Metal
    Formation: Florida, USA (1999)
    Status: Active

    The primary reason I listen to this band is because their music is fun to play on guitar (especially with a friend because of the frequent harmonies). Idk if this band is mainstream now, but when I discovered them (around the release of their second album) they weren't. I would recommend anything from Ascendancy or Shogun.

    Edit: Ok, I guess the genre should just be "Metal". Some of their songs are thrashy, though.
