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
Paul Coutts
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
Vinicitur
What's strange is that a lot of the new bands that I've discovered are very closely linked.
VinceG
Very cool! This may come in handy sometimes but I like word of mouth much better.
Vinicitur
You use this site in addition to metal-archives and myspace and you can't go wrong smile.gif
VinceG
haha thats what I'm planning to do when I get downstairs to my music computer.
Vinicitur
There are even last.fm links directly from this site. This is great
Roko
There's also Pandora.com 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 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)

cool web site!



I know tongue.gif the last.fm 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

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!
