i'm confused, are you saying you have too much prog/psych and it seems dated and you want something else?

or are you looking for prog/psych? if the latter, i'm your man

Hi guys,

Looking for recommendations for bands similar to Sylosis. Their album; monolith, is the best metal album I have heard in a long time.

Cheers

The former. Nothing wrong with that style, just looking for some modern rock that is actually good. Something that's not trying to be retro or progressive.

Long Distance Calling is pretty cool. Not really true modern rock, but they've put out a few really good albums.

I also dig Modest Mouse and newer Anathema... And I suppose both of the recent Alice in Chains albums have been pretty solid, although closer to metal really than they used to be.

Porcupine Tree has remained solid throughout the years. Lightbulb Sun, Fear of a Blank Planet, and The Incident are all recent and relevant.

My Bloody Valentine released a follow up to Loveless last year and it was honestly one of the best records of 2013.

I think you will enjoy the album Being and Nothingness by Hexen.

To be honest I thought The Incident was particularly flat; just sounded like a lazy by-the-numbers album. The rest of their discography is another matter, though.

I should elaborate, the b sides were entertaining, the album had high and low points. Older albums were better etc al.

Everything is a revival these days, but there were two bands that I occasionally listen to that might fit the criteria,

The Killers - Hot Fuss
Blonde Redhead - 13

Arguably rock. I don't listen to much modern rock, sorry homes.

Looking for "country" or "southern" metal (or hard rock) bands. Any ideas?

*edit: So far, the only one I've heard that does something like what I have in mind is "Rebel Meets Rebel"

@NABEF9: I would double check what I'm about to tell you since I'm not 100% sure if I'm right but IIRC, chicken picking and hybrid picking is a technique used in Country. Kiko Loureiro of Angra and Joe Haley of Psycroptic both use those picking styles, so I would look into those two. If you're looking for musical cues from Country artists in Metal then I can offer no assistance.

Not what I had in mind, but thanks for the reply!

*edit: Did some Googling, found the Texas Hippie Coalition.

?

Profit!

alright lads, I need some recommendations.

I'm looking for something doomgazey. Best thing I can suggest for a comparison of what I'm looking for is Thou's Acceptance
show

So something that's kind of in the more post-metal category, whilst also being shoegazey, if that makes sense? Someone has recommended me Lantlos, and so far, their Melting Sun album is pretty close to what I'm looking for. I'd prefer no vocals if possible, but if their are, I'd rather them be clean (and good, at that), or growling (like Isis in Weight or So Did We). Deafhaven is pretty amazing, except that style of vocals really turns me off.

So yeah, something like Thou's Acceptance, and Lantlos' Melting Sun album.

I already know of Russian Circles, and like them a lot, but am looking for something generally more...loose? Russian Circles has a really tight, refined sound to me, compared with Thou's Acceptance, which seems much more loose and free. If that makes sense.

So yeah, any help would be great, otherwise, it's all good.
