And VNV Nation is quite good.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

i tend to go for music thats on the fringes some people know them but couldn't really name you a song; like josh pyke (in aus and i think UK i think he's doing ok), end of fashion, kisschasy (actually they're latest is getting alot of airplay which is weird), paolo nutini, cat empire (love love love) umm oh there was eskimo joe but they went and got themselves famous this year I've been in love with them for 7 years and no one ever knew what i was on about and now eveyone loves them (well in aus anyway though their currently touring the US so you may of heard of them if not check them out their great)!

the ppl that mentioned silverchair i'm guessing arn't from australia coz their like the biggest band ever here, they can do no wrong (i personally stopped liking them about 2 albums ago).

Those bands are all very well known in Australia (frankly Im sick to death of hearing Kisschasey on the radio) but I doubt tehy'll break through over seas...

Couldnt agree more, though I stopped liking them a couple of years ago. Bring back 16 year old Daniel Johns and his surfy hair

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

I guess it depends on what you consider well known. Most of my favorite bands are well known among people who like that type of music, but they aren't really played on the radio or anything... like Saves the Day, Allister, and Mest (the last 2 are unfortunately broken up).

I also love Paramore, who until recently weren't very well known, but are suddenly on MTV constantly for some reason.

i love them too, and i know what you mean. they were the artist of the week on mtv last week and it was pretty annoying to hear the same little parts of three songs after every show and before they went to commercials.

I've seen them in concert and where I was had like an open bit at the side of the stage where we were standing, and my friend played Herman Li's guitar, and he gave another of my friends a bottle of Carlsberg. Also My boyfriend took the keyboardists sweat towel, and we shook hands with them all, except the drummer cos he was stuck on his drums, and the bassist, because he was a bit miserable, but he did nod and smile at him

I think their combined hair length would stretch for miles lol

God Bless Dragonforce

I know! It was really strange. I've liked Paramore for quite a while now and some of my friends didn't know who they were, but now for some reason MTV and ther music channels have grabbed hold of them and they'll probably get as popular as My Chemical Romance. There's nothing wrong with that, as long as it doesn't affect their music, as it has done with so many other mainstream bands.

Yes, but the fact that they are so well known for their varying aspects (progressive, death metal, composition-like writing, downright virtuosity...) across a wider spectrum is what I think makes them truly great as a band.

That being said, around in the English general public I must of only seen a couple of Opeth shirts on the whole (one being in Asda on the HP&DH release ), so there is definitely the underground aspect of their popularity.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

Well, my favorite band EVER is Iron Maiden, and most people have at least heard OF them... my other favorites that are better known are Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, and Lamb of God.

Some that I love that aren't as well known yet...

A Fine Frenzy - holy poop... the voice on this girl is just haunting. I've been listening to their album "One Cell In The Sea" for weeks on end now.

Black Label Society - Ozzy's guitarist (Zakk Wylde) in his own band... they sound quite a bit like Ozzy, but come on... when has that ever been a BAD thing?

Chimaira - Brutal, brutal metal... angry lyrics, awesome riffs, I totally love every one of their albums.

Jakalope - A Canadian techno band... imagine NIN with a female singer and slightly more upbeat.

The Sword - If you like classic rock bands like Black Sabbath and Dio, The Sword are like a modern day version of them.

Voivod - Jason Newstead loved them so much that when he left Metallica, he went and joined them. They're hard to describe... kind of a mix of metal, punk, and skate-rock. The vocals can take a bit to get into, but once you do, they're amazing.

Re: Favorite bands that aren't well known

Flipper, Butthole Surfers, Big Black, the Pixies (fairly well-known, but obscure), Meat Puppets (one song made it on the charts I think), the Vaselines, Whirlwind Heat, and the Wipers

oasis
Are you kidding? Oasis have been around for yonks and are known over at least 2 generations sharing different music taste. I think you'd have a hard time finding many people who hadnt heard of them

These bands are pretty much unknown in the area where I live. Still rock though.
