Post Is there any good music anymore?
With the exception of very few, all I hear about on the radio is this pop shit, R&B shit, rap shit, screamo shit, and just shit in general.

Where did Heavy Metal go? Why did Dimebag have to die? There's really nothing that sounds like the good old stuff anymore.
A7X is the only thing I can remotely relate to the sounds of old Metallica, Megadeth, PanterA, such.
I know they're still releasing music, some of them at least, but is there any band that's been formed recently that has the sound of the old rock and metal that we all loved?
Please tell me if you know! All the bands that form in my town are this screamo stuff. Pisses my ears off.

Yes I know, but they are the newest I've heard that are any good. Ever heard December Flower by In Flames?

... Lordi?

Avenged Sevenfold?


GET THE FUCK OUT NOW!


Also, The Sword. Good Doom Metal. As for Dimebag music, Damageplan was his last band, and Hellyeah was made by his brother (who was the drummer in Pantera).

Leo Biollo is good. New, but plays like classic Thrash.

You realize most the really good music from the times you are referring to were not popular at that time either. In fact, I actually hate most the popular metal from the 80s, supposedly the height of metals popularity, because the popular bands were mostly shit. Glam metal and hair metal for the most part sucked, some of the more shock rock side stuff was able to do some good, like Twisted Sister, but most bands were shitty. You expect to hear GOOD music on the Radio? Maybe every once in a while something slips in, but for one they have a rather narrow range of bands, and they pick up stuff that will sell to masses, meaning has wide appeal even if somewhat bland, for things that tend to be REALLY good for one person tend to be really off for others. They also don't want to have to worry about people starting to think too much, or things getting too heavily political, especially in any light that may counter their base or their companies aims, or those who control their companies and so on.

Theres lots of good music out there actually, you just have to do some digging. I, for one, don't hold myself to the old sound though, though I like alot of the older bands like Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Anthrax and Motorhead.

If you want to stay too strictly to an old sound though, I can't help you too much with current music. I like more experimental and edge stuff, and though I play alot of other stuff on my own radio show, I don't remember half the bands I play afterwards. I could recommend Thrice, particularly anything from the Fire Disc of The Alchemy Index, or stuff like Betrayal is a Symptom, Paper Tigers, The Abolition of Man, and Subtle Dagger.
Maybe some Symphony X would suit you with Set the World On Fire, or Domination.
If you want to break out a bit, Sex Machineguns and Balflare, or Kamelot's The Black Halo is pretty good.
I like Darkane's Innocence Gone too, for something heavier.

If you like that type of music, System of A down is still making some pretty cool music. You might like NIN, they still make a good song here and there.

And yeah, the music on the Radio sucks ass. N0th1n just wrote the real reason above. Though you could try finding yourself a internet radio station. You can hook up to radio stations around the world, or you could even find a entire internet based radio station that plays all the music you like.

Wow, I thought we all grew out of this "judge the shit out of modern bands" phase... but I guess not.

Well, I like most shit on the radio, and most shit in general.

I'm guessing you won't find any bands on the radio that you like... but as for shit that's just out there, here are some suggestions:

If you like Death Metal:
Animosity
Cannibal Corpse (you most likely know them, but if you don't, check it out)
Skinless
Job For A Cowboy (usually a good intro band for the death metal genre)

Black Metal:
Dimmu Borgir
Cradle of Filth (good intro band for BM)
Dance Club Massacre (you probably won't like them yet if you don't listen to hardcore/extreme metal genres, but try them out anyway)

Other Shit:
Lamb of God
Dethklok (only half of their album is good though)
Slipknot (despite the shit you may hear, they're pretty fuckin' awesome, but if you don't like them, listen to their very first album: MATE FEED KILL REPEAT)
Disturbed (depending on what your radio plays, you may have heard them, but if you have a PKB like radio, you probably haven't)
System of a Down (another band that receives a lot of shit, but i still love 'em)

there's a lot more shit out there, but for someone starting off, this will do.

Disturbed? Every fucking one has heard of em. They're cliche` nu metal. Not bad, but not great.

Systom Of A Down DOES suck. Seriously suck.
