Alternative metal? How many different types of metal are there..my head is going to explode!
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.
Here's a suggestion: look at the other forums outside of the Pit that have discussions about bands and discover them through that.
Get a Carvin. Do it.

Doesn't belong here, look at the rec thread in pop punk and emo.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything
i'd assume you're talking about NEW saosin. old saosin is a hell of a lot different...

Check out Dance Gavin Dance, and Emarosa both new and old stuff. Both bands had vocalist changes which impacted them dramatically. (DGD vocals went to Emarosa, DGD grabbed a new guy)
ESP Eclipse 300
Jackson RR3
Bugera 6262 head
Trace Elliot straight cab
Boss NS-2
Boss DD-3
pandora.com you type in a band name.. and it creates this station with music like it... for example if you type in bullet for my valentine. the songs will be like escape the fate, bullet for my valentine, killswitch...you get the idea
