also very late discovery, Dropkick Murphy's and Beleive it or Not, Metallica. I knew about them but never liked them bc i didnt really understand how great their pieces are especially Call of Ktulu


Dropkick Murphy's are awesome. Check out Flogging Molly too if you haven't already, not as punky but amazing. Can't listen and not tap my foot and want to jump around smile.gif

My recent find is Jet Black Stare

I know what you mean! There is lots of great old bands, the thing about the new ones is that they can really surprise you.

The last gret band i recently discovered is Queens of the Stone age. They was guest band for Foo FIghters in Bergen, Norway, which i was on (actually they were a warm-up, though they are simply too great to be "warmup", so they wrote "guest-band" instead). They just blew me away. The music was fantasticly cool and original, and Josh Homme had this really rough on-stage image. They are now on my favourite rock-band smile.gif

Scales = some boring stuff thats totally unnescesary to create cool music, liek, if ur stupid.

Akercocke, a blackened death metal band thats uses Opeth like clean parts. Their lyrics are...extreme, to say the least.
Teeth Of Lions Rule The Divine A doom band with Lee Dorian, Justin Greaves, AND Greg Anderson and Stephen O'Malley all in one!? whats not awesome about that?

You might like other Droning Doom bands from Southern Lord like Om, Ascend, and Sleep.

Southern Lord is the exact reason why I started buying Vinyls haha. So far, Wolves in the Throne Room Two Hunters, Boris Smile, and Sunn O))) Domkirke are in my collection. I love Southern Lord records. biggrin.gif
