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

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

Another website such as this is Last.fm, 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
and
Nicholo Paganini (Baroque Violinist)

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.

Thanks!

I really loved pandora.com, 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!
