Bands that have faded into obscurity

So basically I stumbled across a band that I used to listen to quite a lot around 5-6 years ago and wondered what ever happened to them since I stopped listening to them. I had never heard news on UG or other music sites about them in all that time. I wasn't a massive fan or anything but I just assumed that they had broken up or something along those lines, but they're still playing shows and releasing music.

Just interested if there are any bands that you used to listen to (or currently listen to) that have just sort of dropped of the radar but are still are playing and releasing music.

Here's the band I'm on about, anyone remember them?

Well having listened to their newer stuff then I would agree but I do still enjoy some of their older stuff like bloodwork, well now that I stumbled on it again

I'll leave it to you whether that's more nostalgia or good music.

Yeah I know 36CF. Slit Wrist Theory is a tune.

Their obscurity could be down to a couple of things:
- They are Alaskan.
- They have a Nu-Metal sound (which is not really popular right now)
- They no longer appeal much to the popular mainstream metal scene.

BFMV, the most known still I'd say but their latest effort being generic and bland didn't help their future.

KIGH, I remember them getting some nice Kerrang airtime. If they bring out a new album and go to festivals they may or may not get another chance of some nice promotion. Maybe they're not fresh as labels would prefer.

INME. Oh man this band. Well, they still have a very nice cult following but always seemed to be denied by promoters. Dave McPherson does solo shows too and former guitarist Ben Konstantinovic does some nice solo lap guitar playing and was promoted twice by having TomSka a big Youtuber feature videos on his channel.

Its A Shame That Such A Good [u]Rock[u/] Band Like The One In Op Has Faded Away To Make Way For Auto Tune Garbage Music On The Radio Like Adel

nah, back to back is when one goes before the other. but if 3 are playing at the same time...


interestingly enough, the term venue refers to a group of vultures (in addition to the more popular meaning) so maybe when concert promoters are using the term venue, they're referring to DJs as well.
