I listen to a lot of mainstream rock/metal, but I also have a few underground aretists that I love to listen to. In most stores their is a good selection of rock to choose from, and some metal. Their is a certain store here in New Zealand which has a big area just devoted to metal, not just more mainstream acts, but not well know stuff too. I found stuff from An*l C*nt their once. I don't like them but I thought it was cool that a normal non-specialised electrics store sold it.

Anyway, since I found that store, all my metal finding problems have been answered, but I still have trouble accessing stuff like Buckethead. I have never seen an actual physical copy of one of his albums anywhere. Apart from buying online, where can I get stuff from him?
Where do you guys get stuff from your lesser know acts?

i think he is trying to allude to JB-hifi, they have a great range of music, but the Wharehouse is alot cheaper. I usually find the CD's i want at JB's and then go ask the w/house if they got it to save some coin.

other than that, mates ipods, or when in a store with some music ive never heard ill always ask who the band is. the guys at the rock shop in Auckland city on K road have a pretty awesome play list with alot of bands that aren't mainstream.

I find it through friends, wikipedia (looking at bands were the other member makes a band, etc) and most recently a video games. I've been listening to Cage The Elephant who were featured in Borderlands

Your right about he Warehouse. I managed to get Crack The Skye for $13 their, everywhere else it was more than $20 (:. Although their selection of Metal is terrible, they had some Megadeth, Metallica, Black Sabbath, and thats about it.

Edit: I just read that to myself and it came out wrong. I'm not saying those bands are terrible, just that their isn't much of a selection.

i've discovered "underground"-type stuff from local radio segments and stumbling upon bands on myspace.

as far as purchasing music goes, amazon is a great place to start. cdbaby carries a lot of indie stuff too.

Order online, nearly exclusively. JB Hi-Fi import CD prices (pretty much everything I buy) are obscenely expensive.
I can take a road that'll see me through.

I buy them online.

FYE also sells a bunch of more underground stuff.

Tell me about it. To buy Opeth albums in N.Z, you need atleast $30.....

UG, friends, stumbling across them in random places on the internet. If I feel like actively searching for something new, I tend to look in the metal or prog forums, or in threads like the "Forced Listening" one. Then I torrent the shit out of them, and if I find myself listening to it a lot, try and order it online.
