Some people may have heard of this band, but I'm going to add it anyway...

1. Les Savy Fav
2. Type: post-punk
3. Sound: high energy dance-able rock
4. I believe they met in Rhode Island but established themselves in Brooklyn. As far as recordings goes, I only own 3/5, their debut album, but I've heard that ROME (Written Upside Down) EP is incredible. But if they ever come through your town, you HAVE to go see this band. Its the most insane live show I've ever seen. I saw them at JMU (in VA), and the singer was doing ballet moves onstage and running around in the audience. They even showed people from the crowd how to play their individual parts in this long, closing drone and the band members went dancing on the floor. As far as experience and feeling like you are actually part of the show, Les Savy Fav floors every other contemporary band.

And one more...

1. Do Make Say Think
2. Type: instrumental post-rock
3. Sound: loads of sonic depth and texture
4. Buy & Yet & Yet NOW. Or download songs such as "Reitschule", "Classic Noodlanding", or "End Of Music"

Gdrlv, Out of the descriptions I've seen you give of your tastes, I think you would really enjoy this band. They are labelmates of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and I saw them play with Fly Pan Am (has a member of GY!BE in it) last October.

  1. Apartment 26
  2. Rock/techno-metal?
  3. "likely to be lumped in with bands like MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY and NINE INCH NAILS, and for appearance's sake ORGY"
  4. Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler's son, Biff, is a founder member and vocalist. Now working on their second album, the first was called "Hallucinating" (producer: Ulrich Wild).

1. The Dillinger Escape Plan
2. experimental-jazz-math-grindcore-metal
3. sounds like a crack-induced orgy between charlie christian and napalm death
4. their full-length, entitled Calculating Infinity and their recently release EP, entitled Irony is a Dead Scene (featuring Mike Patton on vocals) are essential for anyone who appreciates avant garde music on the aggressive end of the spectrum.
www.dillingerescapeplan.com


1. Cool Hand Luke
2. spiritual, dynamic post-emo rock
3. sounds like mineral with some hardcore screams thrown in here and there
4. they released two CDs completely independently: an ep called So Far... and a full-length called I Fought Against Myself... their new album is coming out on floodgate records soon.

1. The Faint
2. New Wave Revival, Duran Duran mixed with The Clash electrosynth pop
3. Sounds extremely incredible, insane sense of rhythm, 5 person band, sounds like techno with vocals.
4. Extremely talented band, download Glass Danse, Your Retro Career Melted, Total Job to get a taste of them. 3 albums, Blank Wave Arcade and Danse Macabre are their electro albums, first album Media is very emo ish.

1. The Exploding White Mice
2. punk rawk
3. The Ramones, Jesus and Mary Chain (Psycho Candy era)
4. They're Australian, and I got a cassette ep, "Nestful of Vipers" back in like, '87. There was a rockin' cover of Pipeline on it, and they were all pretty catchy tunes (for me anyway). I never saw any of there other releases, never saw any cover on them from the music mags or anywhere. It'd be cool to finally track down some of their other stuff and give it a listen.

If all these are unknown bands, then wouldn't they not be posted because nobody knows about them?

Theses bands are unknown to the masses.
You won't find them on your MTV, Vh1 or even your local Clear Channel Radio Station.

Also, I my opinion the music mentioned in this thread is about 10 times better than the crap manufactured and forced down everyone's throat.
