Inspired by a similar thread in the MR forum wondering who the next big band will be.

Basically, I'm wondering which bands you all reckon are going to get big this next year, which ones will get to the metal mainstream?

I personally would say Gojira, as the new album is selling bucketloads from what I hear. No kult penis measuring contests please

I reckon the ones that make it will be the ones that make it. The others won't make it, so I reckon they won't make it.

I kid you not, I saw their new album sell in chain retail stores. This bodes well for them, as they especially deserve the success.

This is more of an "I'd love to see ____ make it big", but I think it'd be awesome if Cynic actually made a mint off "Traced In Air". They're already highly influential, but relatively unknown. Some of the songs on their new album actually have single potential, if you ask me. Oh, and Between The Buried And Me should make it big, or at least as big as Opeth. I'd also like to see Dir en grey make it as big here as they have in their native Japan.

The only band I can think of that wasn't big before that probably will make it big enough is Gojira, though. They've just... got it. It's hard to explain, but they've got everything going for them.

Skeletonwitch. If not this year, then next. They'll become the "OMG I LISTEN TO SKELETONWITCH NOW I'M SO METUULLLZZZ" band that is ACTUALLY GOOD and ACTUALLY METUUULLLZZZ. I ****in love Skeletonwitch.

And yes to The Absence. They've been around long enough and have gotten good enough that they should explode.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

EDIT: they're from Tampa too, which isn't far from Orlando at all...

I do hope that Sculptured get bigger. No signs of it happenning, but they really deserve it.

Also, I do believe that if Riverside, High On Fire and Gojira push just a little more, they'll become huge. The Latter are doing so, Riverside have a big appeal to them, and judging from HoF's buzz in 2007, they're not far from it.

Hopefully noone I listen to makes it big, cos then I would have to stop listening to them

I'd say definitely Gojira. They're getting HUGE at the moment from what I can see.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Actually I agree with this, I'm astounded at the fact that these guys aren't more popular.

To be fair they are pretty popular for a band that hasn't even released an album.

I'm really hoping their album sales will get them to do an American re-release of Terra Incognita. I need it so bad.

This thread is almost unanimously a Gojira vote. i agree.

After hearing so much about Gojira a year ago I was utterly dissapointed when I gave em a listen.

I myself think CC are going to get even more mainstream attention with Evisceration Plague (to contribute to the thread)...

Warbringer just came out with their first cd earlier this year. With more albums like that, I can definately see them becoming the next big thing in metal (If they ditch their bland singer)

Aside from what's already been mentioned, though it's still somewhat unlikely, I wouldn't be surprised if Behemoth became mainstream. Aside from all the press they get for being generally anti-Christian (the whole bible-ripping incident), "The Apostasy" got a lot of attention, and whatever they're working on next I think might break the barrier.

Genghis Tron's had a lot of buzz around their last release, so I think probably when they release their next CD (probaby '10, '11) they'll become a lot more known than they already are, and I feel the same about Three Inches of Blood, though they were at Ozzfest so it's debatable that they're already "mainstream" or not.
#37
I'll be original and bet on Wolfmother with the new line-up. I'm gonna have to trust Stockdale this time.
#38
I agree with Slay. Warbringer are teh bore. I saw them live and...well....singer blows...and everything else is once again standard thrash.

CC and Gojira seem like a good bet. I'd also say To-Mera have great potential to make it, but unfortunately, they remain relatively obscure even with a stellar release this year. NeO of course, will also impress. That's next year, but whatever. Suffocation might start crawling out of the gutter next year, who knows. Decrepit Birth seems to have gotten quite a bit of attention for their last piece o' crap too.
