Titles pretty self explanatory. List your top 5 bands and the reason why they are where they are on your list.
1. Coheed and Cambria
A combination of an epic storyline going through out their albums, combined with unique lyrics and an intense musical style without being metal (I hate metal/screamo), i think Coheed has for me, effectively captured the heaviest available sound in my tastes. I still think their first album, Second Stage Turbine Blade is their best, and it is my favorite album. Once my band gets its shit together i want to cover Delirium Trigger and God Send Conspirator.
Wow, what to say about such a band? Sometimes being called the second coming of the Beatles other times being called a bunch of coked out brits who are out of their minds, Oasis is a love it or hate it band, and i love them. They have so much material, it was an effor finding and downloading it all, and even now, i think i might be missing a few songs from them. Some tracks took hours of searching dead torrents to find, but i got them. Im currently awaiting their next album quite impatiently.
3. Taking Back Sunday
If ever i need something to just listen to, and im too lazy to pick something out, chances are i scroll down to the lovely Taking Back Sunday and pick something there. From their slower songs like New American Classic for when im in a bit more of a relaxed or slow-sad mood, to Spin for when im owning in DOTA and need something fast going, theyre just very versatile in their sound. TBS is also working on a new album currently, and i cant wait until it leaks.
4. Circa Survive
This was a tough choice, but when it comes right down to it, the high and amazing voice of Anthony Green will accept no arguement and will hear no complaint. I think between the lyrics that he rights and how uniquely he can sing, I can pick what i like about Anthony best. When he left Saosin i was devestated but was jumping with joy when i first heard this new project of his. Although they havent put out too much material, i dont know how theyre going to top themselves anyway.
5. Brand New
Wow, talk about a band that has unexpected things going on. I look through various lyrics of theirs and re-listen to songs for the hundreth time finding a new meaning or reason to love it. After hearing The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows when the music video first came out, i thought they were pretty good. It wasnt until recently i sat down and torrented the rest of their music, and i was overwhelmed. Their acoustics are examples of what a slow song should be.
