So basically I stumbled across a band that I used to listen to quite a lot around 5-6 years ago and wondered what ever happened to them since I stopped listening to them. I had never heard news on UG or other music sites about them in all that time. I wasn't a massive fan or anything but I just assumed that they had broken up or something along those lines, but they're still playing shows and releasing music.

Just interested if there are any bands that you used to listen to (or currently listen to) that have just sort of dropped of the radar but are still are playing and releasing music.

Here's the band I'm on about, anyone remember them?

Well having listened to their newer stuff then I would agree but I do still enjoy some of their older stuff like bloodwork, well now that I stumbled on it again

I'll leave it to you whether that's more nostalgia or good music.

Loads of mid and late-00s bands I used to like including Bullet For My Valentine, Atreyu, Kids in Glass Houses, InMe etc etc. etc.

Yeah I know 36CF. Slit Wrist Theory is a tune.

Their obscurity could be down to a couple of things:
- They are Alaskan.
- They have a Nu-Metal sound (which is not really popular right now)
- They no longer appeal much to the popular mainstream metal scene.

BFMV, the most known still I'd say but their latest effort being generic and bland didn't help their future.

KIGH, I remember them getting some nice Kerrang airtime. If they bring out a new album and go to festivals they may or may not get another chance of some nice promotion. Maybe they're not fresh as labels would prefer.

INME. Oh man this band. Well, they still have a very nice cult following but always seemed to be denied by promoters. Dave McPherson does solo shows too and former guitarist Ben Konstantinovic does some nice solo lap guitar playing and was promoted twice by having TomSka a big Youtuber feature videos on his channel.

nah, back to back is when one goes before the other. but if 3 are playing at the same time...


interestingly enough, the term venue refers to a group of vultures (in addition to the more popular meaning) so maybe when concert promoters are using the term venue, they're referring to DJs as well.

DUDE 36CF is still around. Their new(est) music is badass, too! I was listening to the record about a month ago.

They did lose their drummer though, sadly, who was one of the strongest parts of the band. As far as I know, they still play shows and stuff, though probably only around their area now, since they aren't putting out any new music (and probably won't, ever). There just isn't as much demand for their type of stuff now, which really sucks.

Yeah, I agree with this. Though for a time, they were based out of Portland, OR. Not sure if that's still the case.

i kinda wanna say Soundgarden, sadly. it depends on your definition of obscurity, really. They broke up for a bit, then got back together, released a rather boring album, and do shows, but really nobody hears much about them anymore other than repeats of stuff they wrote in the 90s. Superunknown will go down in history as one of the most complete grunge albums ever recorded, but we're speaking purely recently here, no?

It makes me sad, as Soundgarden is one of my top 3 favorite bands ever, and easily my favorite of the 90s by a long, long ways.

I attribute their fall to Chris Cornell losing interest in it and going a different direction with his solo stuff and audioslave.
It's okay, Lt. Shinysides. You don't have to eat it now, you're just sleeping, you can eat it later. You can eat it later Lt. Shinysides!

Similar story here. Ive first heard them at T.v with in the shadows. Its was 2004 and I was 9. They were coming for local fest (rock n coke). Told my dad that I liked it. He took me to my first concert. I didnt understand much because I didnt know english very well but still I liked the music. Shame they didnt keep up with their work

BFMV simply released a series of sub-par albums in a row (3 I think) and I don't know anyone who actually likes them any more.

KIGH were on the verge of breaking mainstream with Dirt and had a lot of traction from Radio 1 and Kerrang. But their next 2 albums were flop, one being a poorly recorded, forgettable "concept album", and the latest one being some synth-pop-rock effort that I haven't even listened to. They're breaking up and doing a farewell tour in October now.

INME are still going strong crowdfunding new albums etc. but they literally get no support from the media so they're stuck playing small venues. Should probably have got a lot better, Daydream Anonymous had the potential to break into the mainstream rock scene.

Thats pretty awesome. I was about 9 too and my dad was a little concerned when he heard what I was listening to. To go to a gig at that age must have seemed crazy

BFMV
- The Poison, much loved by most
- Scream, Aim, Fire!, solid album
- Fever, losing it
- Temper Temper, pfft nobody cares about BFMV after Fever and Temper Temper is the nail in the coffin.

KIGH
Yeah they were reaching some good heights. Never followed them much but I do like some of their songs. I remember checking out one of their later albums and it was pretty poor overall besides 1 or 2 singles.

INME
I do and still like InMe quite a lot. I found them during an effort of media attention, saw them on Scuzz with "Single of the Weak". Such a catchy song. But yeah I was surprised that when many years later I was looking into them and found their history. They didn't even turn up late to the scene, they had perfect timing but promotion really let them down it seemed.
