GMC Forum _ Bands and Guitarists _ Strange Way To Find Bands

Posted by: albino Jan 27 2008, 06:14 AM

Found this site where you put in an artist's name, press submit and it shows similar bands in a spider diagram with pictures. Good resource if not a little spooky.

I've seen things like this for internet radio. But not as a stand alone search. Nice tool to discover new bands. smile.gif Thanks

that's very cool, thanks a lot. I'm always on the look-out for new bands, and this is very helpful....albeit a little spooky biggrin.gif

Posted by: Vinicitur Jan 27 2008, 07:00 AM

What's strange is that a lot of the new bands that I've discovered are very closely linked.

Posted by: VinceG Jan 27 2008, 07:01 AM

Very cool! This may come in handy sometimes but I like word of mouth much better.

Posted by: Vinicitur Jan 27 2008, 07:05 AM

You use this site in addition to metal-archives and myspace and you can't go wrong smile.gif

Posted by: VinceG Jan 27 2008, 07:25 AM

haha thats what I'm planning to do when I get downstairs to my music computer.

Posted by: Vinicitur Jan 27 2008, 07:27 AM

There are even links directly from this site. This is great

There's also where it finds you songs that match keys, tonality, and overall mood... Check it out...

I know I was a member until they stopped Canadians from listening due to copyright problems. sad.gif

Another website such as this is, you download a plugin for your media player and it calculates from what youve been listening, bands to recommend to you smile.gif

Sometimes it does get it wrong though; once i listened to Dream Theater around 450 times in a week

I was recommended...
My Chemical Romance
Nicholo Paganini (Baroque Violinist)

cool web site!

I know tongue.gif the recomendations can be pretty wierd.. I listen to mostly rock and metal, and then since I listen to rage against the machine, I got all this crappy gangster rap in my recomendations laugh.gif

btw, you a 4chan-fan Melvyn? tongue.gif

Love it!Thanks.

Wow! That is cool!
This is something that I can really use.

I've seen things kind of like this for internet radio, like Pandora or Last, but this is something really unique.


Posted by: Fran Feb 18 2008, 11:30 PM

I really loved, but sadly they no longer allow access to Pandora for listeners located outside of the U.S.

Great site to discover new music, it was!
