Post bands that you've known about for ages but haven't bothered looking up, but when you did get round to looking them up, they blew your mind.

I've known and liked a song called She Sells Sanctuary by The Cult for ages. Finally got round to listening to their other stuff and holy shit, DAT GUITAR RIFFAGE...

Viildhjarta's Masstaden album. I had it on my computer for a while and only got round to listening to it a couple of weeks ago. Holy shit dude. That's a monstrous album. I don't listen to other djent type music, but this is something else musically and visually. It's so intense. The production of the album is so good. The subsonic brutal low bombs of noise is just ****ing ridiculous, especially when coupled with the randomness and ambience... It's just something else .

Wasn't there a very similar thread about this not too long ago?

Things that restored my faith in humanity this year: 26
Things that removed all faith in humanity this year: 1,563,745,234 (estimated)

so that's a result of -1,563,745,208 faith points in humanity lost, which is actually up from last year!

Kinda similar with The Cult. They were the reason I started playing guitar back in the '80s, then I got into Iron Maiden & Guns N Roses and sort of forgot about them until a couple of years ago and since then they've been reinstated as my favourite band.

Also, if you like She Sells Sanctuary, check out my profile - I've done what I think is a pretty good cover of it (although my singing isn't nearly as good as Ians )

Burzum

Only realised how good it was after I had an album or two knocking around on my iTunes for like 2 years.

The Police.
I'd known about them for a while, but when I started listening to them I started wondering where they'd been all my life.

Same goes for Sting, really.

Pantera, I had known of them for a while, but started really liking them when I started listening to them.
