So Pit..

Before you hear any music of any artist at all for the first time, have you ever made the assumption, wheather you just look at the artist's name, artwork, lyrics, style, image, etc etc, that you would either like or hate that particular artist right off the bat? Then listen to said artist just to find out your assumption was right?

If so, what artists?

I assumed Porcupine Tree were an indie band.

I still do, as I still haven't listened to them.

They was the rare exception. I listened to them thinking I'd hate it but they actually kick a lot of ass

The Something = indie-ish band

Noun that ends with -tion = death metal
Two long words = prog
4 words or more = "emotional hardcore" or whatever you call it these days

I don't judge music because of the artist's name, look or artwork, I construct my opinion of them by the music.

i really hate when people do that. im a huge music fan and love spreading the holy word which is good music. but when people like this friend i have can decide whether they like an artist before 30 seconds of music have been played... what? listen to the music before you make oyur decisions!

I've often bought albums by bands I've never heard of just by the cover, not so much the name. I have been burned many, many times, but also I have been pleasantly surprised.

I bought The Gaslight Anthem's The '59 Sound merely by the name and the cover, I had never heard of them before.

Also Maylene and the Sons of Destruction their first album, and Murder by Death's in bocca il lupo.

When I first heard of Streetlight Manifesto, I thought they'd make gay and terrible music.

At first I was like nah but then I thought about it was was like yeah actually.

Also add "ridiculous medical term = brutal death metal/goregrind" and "random words/phrases that don't mean anything = pseudo-prog metalcore/mathcore" to that list.

I haven't posted in this thread yet but I feel like giving this a go for the sake of comedy.

This is what genre pops into my head when I see the names:

Sequestered Benediction: Some kind of proggy death metally kinda thing
Hold Fast: Punk band, almost certainly
Screaming Sunflower Seeds: Prog Rock a la King Crimson?
North to Alaska: The BTBAM reference has thrown me, sorry
Raynkor Nation: Whatever genre a dyslexic Star Wars fan happens to like?
Cauldron of Corpes: Assuming that is supposed to say "corpSes", then I would say another death metal band
If I Shout I Shout Within: Post-modern emo-core

Tell me how right I was.

I find that the likelihood of an artist being shitty is increased many times over by the inclusion of a verb in their name.

First impression and all that but I always give it a try.

Like Deadbird, saw the album cover on a youtube video and thought ''ah another bmth band''. But damn Deadbird is one of my favorite bands at the moment.

Sequestered Benediction: Technical Death Metal
Hold Fast: Something that sounds like The Gaslight Anthem's first album and makes references to sailors in the lyrics
Screaming Sunflower Seeds: A psychadelic rock trio
North to Alaska: One of those bands that's like indie but with prog elements. Clean guitars, long, winding tapping licks, odd time signatures. Like "This Town Needs Guns". What would you call that genre?
Raynkor Nation: A band that tries really hard to be taken seriously, possibly Christian hardcore
Cauldron of Corpes: An old school metal band with Sabbath-like riffs but harsh screaming vocals
If I Shout I Shout Within: Pop-punk/emo/whatever it's called. Emo is a derogative term these days, but I don't know what else to call it.

I agree with sashki's more than random's. For Cauldron of Corpses, I probably go with something inbetween the two descriptions though, so like death metal with sludge. It would maybe sound something like Acid Witch. As a matter of fact, that actually sounds like it could be an Acid Witch album/song title.

I kid you not, 18 year old me once during lunch break or something in the music room/office place in Lambeth College, Clapham campus, was told by the head of music there, that I should hang out with this drummer (who really cramped young me's style). And himself, and should be in a band called Honky Sausage. I was polite and everything, but in my head, I was like
"No."
That was the final deal breaker for me.
