Hey so i like the sound of some of the glam or hair metal bands or whatever you wanna call them. I have been likeing Dokken latly, and was wondering if anyone knows of a newerband that has a simalar sound to them. Or actually any band thats more guitar driven and doesnt scream the whole time im not having much luck looking.
Any help would be great thanks guys!

Steel Panther, for sure. Their guitarist endorses Kramer guitars, I believe. So that should tell you a bit about their sound from the get-go.

Probably not your best choice, but Bullet For My Valentine have a lot of influence by bands like Iron Maiden and Metallica... they're heavier than your glam metal band, but still pretty nice guitar riffs.

The Darkness is also a [decently] well known glam band from today... They're not exactly common, but see if these guys work.
#12
Hey thanks guys im checking them all out and im liking some of them! I didnt mean they had to be a new hair band sorry if that was confusing.
I hear good guitar in bands that are screaming and i just cant get into the screaming stuff. SOOOO let me rephrase that. any bands with good guitar that sing close to all of the time if not all

If you just want some killer guitar with clean singing you should check out some newer power metal and heavy metal bands.

Hibria sounds exactly like Primal Fear, their singers almost look identical.
#16
Alright thanks guys now this is probly a dumb question and ill get made fun of hahah but do any of these bands have softer songs like a ballad or whatever you wanna call it. I like when bands can do more than one style any suggestions? still singing and good guitar though?

You should ask in the Metal forum's reccommendation thread, which I linked in my earlier post if you want anything else.

They're all quite willing to help you if you ask in there... that's what it's made for.

EDIT: ^Yes, plenty. I don't think Hibria or Cage do...

But, once again, ask in the Rec thread in the metal forum and you''ll find something you like.

So you're big and kinda hairy
Like a monkey at the zoo
I don't care if you're a monkey
With an ass that's red and blue

'Cause I'm gonna fuck you doggy style
The way chihuahuas do
Biy I got one request
That I have to ask of you

Turn out the lights!
Before you suck my dick
Someone beat you with an ugly stick
I wanna fuck but you make me sick so
Turn out the lights!
Turn out the lights!

So you think that I'm a loser
Cause I used to be in jail
And I got my GED diploma
Last week in the mail

At least a man can excercise
If he gets too fat
But I got news for you
Your face will always look like that

Turn out the lights!
Before I take a ride
You don't seem to have a good side
Whip out a -something- in the astro glide
Turn out the lights!
Turn out the lights!

Turn out the lights!
I think I'm gonna hurl
Jess Christ, I hope that you're a girl
Open your mouth baby, here come the Pearls
Turn out the lights!
Turn out the lights!

Tell me when it's over
Please tell me you don't have VD
Thank god that it's over

Well we all have indescretions
I think you're my biggest yet
Had to roll you in some flour
Just to see where you were wet

Well this never woulda happened
If I hadn't lost that bet
I wonder if our grandkids
Will ask us how we met

Turn out the lights!
Girl, it's way too bright
I don't wanna look at your cellulite
There aint nothing on your body that's tight, baby
Turn out the lights!
Turn out the lights!

Turn out the lights!
Before you take off your clothes
I'm gonna tie you up with some garden hose
Slap your tits and rub my balls on your nose
Turn out the lights!
Turn out the lights!

Turn out the lights!
Before we do the deed
Before I cover your box with my seed
I'm gonna pound you till you fuckin' start to bleed, bitch!
Turn out the lights!
Turn out the lights!


I couldn't find any lyrics so I wrote the whole thing out myself...

Check out Airbourne, Black Tide and Steel Panther. That's the closest you get to 80's nowadays, though Steel Panther is the only hair metal band of the three. Anyway, check out my band too, it's very 80's inspired

I'm not sure why I didn't ask this ealier, but why do they have to be modern bands?

There's plenty of 80's bands who do 80's better than these new bands. Which probably goes without saying...
#26
There is Steel Panther. Please be warned of a couple of things with this band. First, it is a very tongue in cheek act. Go to iTunes and read their bio. The band is absolutley hysterical!!! Second, they are very obscene, but, again, tongue in cheek (you just won't know what cheek).

Melodic, guitar driven, ´singing´singer, some harmonies, do some ballads too?

Harem Scarem - virtuosos in harmonic vocals and melodic guitar rock

Leverage - little more metal driven but meets all your conditions as well

Looking at your comments you should seroiusly check out this site: MELODICROCK.COM is full of information about ´modern´ and older bands with the typ of music u like.

Hammerfall. They're like power metal stuck in the 80s.
"Black gives way to more black."




I have UG Black Style and I can barely read my signature.

Also, I like black.

Why hasn't anyone suggested Chickenfoot yet? Nothing's more melodic and guitar driven than a band with Satch in it!
#31
Check out Airborne. A great band from Australia that got huge praises. Almost like a newer AC/DC
#33
HANSEL!!!! These guys are awesome, and they are reminiscent of GNR and Motley Crue...check their website
#34
Cauldron - They sound like Dokken

White Wizzard - idk what they sound like but its kick ass!!!!!

all of the above

Cage I guess if it hasn't been said?, Alot of american power metal will give you an 80s sound.. Cage is very similar to priest in a lot of ways. Also, I guess three inches of blood, pretty much like a manilla road, cirith ungol mix, although I don't really like them.
