Hi All,

I am looking for new music, new bands etc in the broader rock / alternative genre.
Something ruff, something blues, something acoustic, something hard, something new, something fresh, something with soul, something sleazy, something with solos, something acoustic, something electric, just overall good music, made by musicians!


To give you an idea what I am looking for, these are bands that fall into my taste:
Guns n' Roses
Aerosmith
Clutch
Slash's Snakepit
Kings of Chaos
Metallica
Florence and the Machine
Awol Nation
Eric Clapton
The Narrow
Velvet Revolver
Rodrigo y Gabriella
Doors
Marilyn Manson
Regina Spektor
Foo Fighters
& Acoustic Covers of all good songs.
(just to name a few)

Post you suggestions!

THIS! Loving them at the moment. In your face hard rock that kicks you right in the teeth.
Wasn't much of an Avenged Sevenfold fan but liking their Hail to the King album.
Also check out Stonesour.

Was pretty bummed when VR split but will definitely give Snakepit a listen.

Cool, thanks for all the suggestions, my internet line will be humming tonight!
Any blues? -rock blues, sleaze blues, Hillbilly rock, anything weird but still in the scope of bands mentioned?
Musicians that make good honest music, good rock and blues, or anyone that has something new, something fresh!
Then on the flipside, anything like Florance and the Machine, Imogen Heap etc?

For me the best band to come out post 2000 is Interpol, their debut Turn on the Bright Lights is brilliant.

As for others, the new Queens of the Stone Age is addictive, The Arctic Monkeys first two albums I thoroughly enjoyed, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs first three albums are also cool.

Theres also

The Organ- Grab that Gun
Le Tigre
Elefant
She wants revenge

theres lots of good new alternative music out there actually

Ever listened to Reignwolf? It ticks off quite a few of the things you mentioned.A lot of people are talking about this guy. Last I heard he was touring with Sabbath. Let me know what you think.
