Alright here's the deal. I listen to a lot of classic rock and blues, Zeppelin, Allman Bros, Hendrix, etc and it seems to me that i'm having a hard tim finding new bands on that level of talent. I feel that the music of Rage Against the Machine has an old school feel just amped up a notch.....the vocals are obviously different. Does anyone have any suggestions for some good new rock bands with serious talent? I'm not talking wolfmother and stuff like that. I want breakdowns, solos, the whole works. Anybody know of anything to check out?

ya i know what you mean by no good music today...

coheed is a sweet band...i like the vocals, but they do take some time.

if you want really tight musicianship but with breakdowns and solos...Protest the Hero...now those are some hard vocals to love...but i just find the music to make to vocals fit.

Also...switch to metal...so much more musicanship and talent...less bull****....well there is still a lot of bull.

If you want to get into metal just listen to Dragonforce, any cd before they were even known in North America is a good cd...

THE BLACK CROWES.

That being said, take it to Modern Rock, their recommendation thread has some good suggestions.

Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.
