Favourite bands from the 'internet years'

Recommended Posts

I've been buying music for 30 years. For the first 20 I bought my stuff only in stores but for the last 10 or 12 I've bought nearly 90% of my stuff online. In that time I've discovered a ton of bands that I'd never know about if it wasn't for the internet. If it wasn't for the internet I also wouldn't know any of you.

 

My Father always told me I'd never like modern music, he's right in a sense but I do love modern bands that do the 80's sound. Even though I'm a fan of 80's music and especially big hair rock/metal as most of us are on this forum, I have discovered new bands.

 

Here is a list of my fav 'internet' bands that have only been around as long as I've had the internet. The catch is the band needs to have released at least 2 discs.

 

1. Brother Firetribe

2. Waltham (they've released enough music for 2 different discs)

3. Work Of Art

4. The Poodles

5. The Darkness (funny I've bought all their stuff in stores.)

6. Reckless Love

7. Crashdiet

8. H.E.A.T.

9. Entwine

10. The rebirth of Harem Scarem after the Rubber years

 

other notables include Wig Wam, Leverage, Place Vendome, White Widow, Jettblack, Steel Panther (although I also bought both releases in a store)

 

So what are your favourite internet bands?

since the sad demise of kerrang magazine(which I bought from its first issue right up to around '96-) from what it was to what it now has become I depend on the internet for most of if not all of my music information.

Yeah, those 2 aren't band and I'd go along with Crazy Lixx and White Widdow too.

 

For me, by far the best new band of (at least) the last ten years is:

 

Blackrain

To be honest, as many bands as I have discovered through the internet in the last few years (both old and new), for me one of the most recent ways to find new music has been support acts at gigs.

The amount of bands I now listen to purely through being support acts has been a revelation.

Knock Out Kaine, Night By Night, New Device, Hell In The Club, Dear Superstar, Jettblack, The Scams, The Wild Lies, Falling Red & Kinkade are a few that spring to mind. All discovered through being support acts.

    • thanks for sharing, I did not know they were coming out with a new album this year
    • like you said it's all about preferences, in the end it's those differences that make this site work, bringing in alternate perspectives and introducing people to albums and bands they may have otherwise missed out on, as long as we remember to keep it respectful, plus you can't help that you don't have as good of taste as the rest of us 
    • But guys, he's one of today's most powerful and versatile lead vocalists. 
    • Also saw Once Upon A Time In Hollywood - agree with comments above, but a long and at times boring film. Star Wars Rise Of Skywalker - way less cringey lines in this one than recent releases. I really enjoyed it - wound up well, and probably the closest that we've had to the first 3 movies (IV, V & VI) as far as the way it was directed and produced. Shame all the others weren't made the same way.
    • I didn't like it at all.  the s/t is from 81 ish. classic line up
    • The Doors-In Concert Five Finger Death Punch-A Decade of Destruction In This Moment-Blood Waylon Jennings-Greatest Hits Moody Blues-Anthology Poison-Swallow This Live Todd Rundgren-Best Of  
    • Nice.  Blind preorder done! I'd guess we probably won't see this album until the summer at the earliest but good news.
    • Once Upon a time in Hollywood - nice drama about friendship, an unexpected ending though, but fun. Also yet another nod from Tarantino to Spaghetti Western and Italo crime movies Scary Stories to tell in the dark - a fun thriller/horror and coming of age movie. Not too scary, but very engaging. Reminded me of It, but not as long.
    • I was listening to 'Shout at the devil' the other day and was surprised as how cool it actually is. We all have the same tunes on our lists, but 'Knock 'em dead kid' and 'Ten seconds to love' are great too. And the 'Helter skelter' cover. Yeah, it was a pretty awesome disc for it's time, to be honest. Credit where it's due, n' stuff. 
    • Oh, how technical, regarding MSG. I thought those two were both McCauley/Schenker, aren't they?  Anyway, I always thought the same about 'TS' but I've actually rated it above 'Rocket Ride.' I know 'RR' had the best songs they've recorded, and I can only assume there were also a few clunkers too, whereas 'TS' was pretty solid throughout... even if the highs were not as high.
