I just recently was lent Gang of Four, Entertainment by my mom's boyfriend. I just can't believe that I'd never heard these guys, they were awesome. This ever happen to anyone else?

Most of the lesser known thrash bands especially Overkill, Death Angel, Heathen, and Forbidden. They are really great, but did not get enough media attention.

Same goes for Mercyful Fate and King Diamond.

I can't believe I had never given Agalloch a good listen earlier. Seriously, what is wrong with me?

Have you ever heard of Slayer , Megadeth, Metallica or Testament.
I think they have myspaces..


On another note; i'd say Frank Zappa. I was bought up on him more or less, my dad is a big fan, my brother dug him as they got older. But I never realised or took him into account until i got over jimi hendrix and led zeppelin stages as everyone does..
I think that's why I feel happy and stuff when I hear a Zappa solo because my mind connnects it to happy childhood moments.

Well Slayer, Megadeth, and Metallica are all the most known thrash metal bands, and beyond that you really have to dig and search through countless forums and music reccommendation sites. Testament is pretty easy to find with a bit of searching for thrash metal.... but overkill i bought on a whim because i saw one of their used albums, heathen i has just heard of once and found one of their albums randomly, death angel's the ultraviolence is brilliant but I never see any music store carrying it, Flotsam + Jetsam are basically unfamiliar to anyone who isnt a complete metal fanatic and you need to really search for them too, almost as much as for heathen. Bands like Vio-Lence are also similar, as they were only around for a little while in the late part of the thrash scene.

I never had a problem finding the big 4, or the second layer under the big 4 (except for Overkill and most albums besides Act III by Death Angel).

Oh and yah some Zappa's always nice. Also Dinosaur Jr, Tool, The Mars Volta, and Sonic Youth are all interesting too.

Pink Floyd.

I never thought I would like their music and that it was all just some trippy psychedelic crap.

Then I started smoking pot. Boy were my eyes opened.
