I really liked that Disarmonia Mundi song.  It moved me musically, was a good length (it didn't end too song nor wear out its welcome), and I really liked the drumming.  The drumming had some interesting fills and some cool little intricacies.

Orphaned Land- I really liked the first minute of the song.  Everything else was meh.  The music was complex and I dug the Middle-Eastern melodies and harmonies, but it wasn't all that memorable beyond the great riffs and licks during the first minute.  Plus, I thought the vocalist was weak.  His growls were toothless and his cleans, especially the falsettos, lacked power.  

Eluveitie- This is easily my favorite of everything posted.  I looked them up on Metallum and the lineup on this album- THIS is how you do metal with 8 or 9 people and make it sound like huge, epic, bigger than the Swiss Alps music and not just "everything but the kitchen sink" noise.    I loved the variety of growls along with the symphonic cleans, the guitars sounded really beefy but still raw and not overprocessed/too clean, the folk instrumentation during the bridge was nicely incorporated, the little bass breakdown 3:30 in, lyrics in two languages...


Jawsh- Winwood is a very accomplished musician, so why'd you have to pick his radio pop hit?  Now, when it comes to Winwood, THIS is where it's at (him kicking ass with Clapton, Trucks, and others): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VT-SFgkVlno
And I do thoroughly enjoy jazz, blues, funk, old Motown, world music, classical... I am a bass player after all and my teacher greatly influenced my appreciation for jazz and jazz-fusion.  But I don't really want that right now.

I just discovered a really cool band.  They're a Brazilian band called "Inkblott" and they're kinda like Mudvayne, only more proggy, more mathy, and more intense.  Their bassist has some serious skill and some cool breakdowns.  I love the song 7 Wounds.  https://soundcloud.com/inkblott-band

I'm pretty familiar with Therion.  Good band, but their material is hit or miss for me.  Other bands/artists that scratch the itch but I'm already pretty familiar with include Devin Townsend and Fear Factory.

You've probably heard them already since they helped originate industrial metal, but for me Ministry came to mind especially in terms of lyrics and fast metal.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

I remember when I first heard NWO.  That song f'n POUNDS!  Ministry's a killer band. 

But, again, I'm already familiar with their music and I'm always looking for new (or new to me) stuff.

Never saw this thread. I feel like a fool.

MMMkay, here are my "NOT ROCK but still ROCKIN suggestions". If indie Alt. rock with a flair of the past dressed up with a contemporary finish doesn't sound appealing to you then skip em. Truth be told though, I freakin' love these though.

-July Talk https://youtu.be/iU5qp-cAtOU
-Metric https://youtu.be/ttqMGYHhFFA

Something old but new and still wearing flannel.

-Screaming Trees https://youtu.be/PE5f561Y1x4
-Dinosaur Jr. https://youtu.be/FpsGcnLEZbk

Something... punkerly prog rock? I don't know man, I am bad with genres. (Heavier but clean vocals and catchy riffs)

-(acoustic, much heavier plugged in) Tides of Man https://youtu.be/LVnl-_I_5Xo **** Very Circa Survive' ish
- Circa Survive https://youtu.be/cOZlAunMb8o
- (More popular but their newest album is TOTALLY WORTH LISTENING TO) Dance Gavin Dance https://youtu.be/Qq_caFxzKqg (same singer as Tides of Man but faster and heavier)
- Picture Me Broken https://youtu.be/-_vF5NqgC7E (not the most inspiring writing but the female lead most certainly rocks)

Retro-Wave (sounds like contemporary darkwave or synth sort of. Not rock your socks off stuff but I like it.)

-Dead Astronaut https://youtu.be/AfZJansbHNY

I know you mentioned an appreciation for the rather obscure/lesser known and in truth I don't really know if any of these are mega-popular or not. I like what I like and sometimes I am totally oblivious to whether or not the music is in fact well known, so forgive me if some suggestions don't qualify.

EDIT: WARNING!! NOTHING SUGGESTED ABOVE IS METAL (albeit some heavier).

Here is my token Metal Suggestion for the day -- LoL

-Marazene https://youtu.be/3InJ7jDjteY

I'm already familiar with Screaming Trees and Dinosaur Jr.  I remember that Screaming Trees song from the Singles soundtrack and I like the song Alice Said.  Circa 2007 or 8, when I was chubby and my hair was long and shaggy, I was tabling for the Rutgers U Musicians' Guild and a student comes up to the table, points to me, and says, "J. MASCIS!!!!"  Apparently I looked like J. Mascis in his mind.  That was cool. 

As for the music suggestions, I really liked that Dead Astronauts song.  It felt like a modern version of New Order, Depeche Mode or One Second era Paradise Lost (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jy3zsrEJZTc) when they were experimenting more with non-metal styles.  I do enjoy me some industrial (Ministry, KMFDM, ohGr).  This song is always stuck in my head: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_fjoIU1ZWg&list=PL0722DFF5DD5CB001

And that Marazene song was cool too.  It was like a rawer, grittier Marilyn Manson or White Zombie with shrapnel tooth-gnashing.

Long ago in a galaxy far far away when I was drug addled and homeless I tried to snag a free meal at a buffet for a movie being shot locally. I believe the title of the film was "The Trouble with Cali" or something like that by Paul Sorvino (sp?). I was approached there and asked to be an extra because the script called for a "Kurt Cobain" look-alike. I still don't know whether this was flattering or offensive to me being a huge Nirvana fan but all too aware of the circumstances...

And I'm really stoked you brought up Depeche Mode because I've been fickle with my tattooing--playlists lately and forgot my motivation to delve into their career and work. Thanks for the reminder. As for Dead Astronauts, I discovered them when I was looking for something similar to July Talk and they initially reminded me of Joy Division somehow.

As an aside, your sentiment about Marazene mirrors my own. I actually found them to be one of the only acts that sounded very "Manson-like" by my measure.

Here are some good metal songs I've been digging:

Insomnium - Ephemeral
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DjmQXtZUx4
Good stuff by Insomnium and I just read that they just booked a few studios to record their next album.
Story: http://metalstorm.net/events/news_comments.php?news_id=28835

Omnium Gatherum - Skyline
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SIo0VA2lFQ
Headbangn' worthy of In Flames' Clayman' "Only for the Weak" of ol'

Onmyo-Za - 青天の三日月
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcVSDmJmJfU
Good harmonics between the male and female singer at the chorus.

The Gentle Storm - Heart Of Amsterdam
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2q2Wx5H6wkg
Many instruments, many styles and filmed in historic Amsterdam. Another great project from Arjen Anthony Lucassen.

Wilderun - The Garden of Fire
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1DOGUgPy7c
Fast drum tracks in this one. Symphonic folk metal

Pyramaze - Fearless
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JU_xvG26Xjk
Good song to get pumped to.

Haken - Crystallised
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk9Wk96yzBY
19:25 minute song, but so worth it. It's an awesome musical journey.

Here have some Skinny Puppy who I think are considered the original industrial band.

The 3 great things about Dinosaur Jr is that, one they are my favorite band, two just about everyone who I introduce to the band likes it no matter their music preference, and three holy #$%^ they still produce epic songs/albums 30 years later.
See You
