Music seems the same everyday. Same rythm, same sounds, same lyrics, same volume.
Why isn't there as much originality as in the past?
So in the last few days, I have listenned to :
Boris - Very prolific Japanese band. Their music genres include Drone Doom, Sludge Metal, Stoner Rock/Metal and Dream Pop.
Daniel BÃ©langer - Very good popular artist in QuÃ©bec. He has good music with accoustic guitar, a nice bass line and great lyrics.
Sonata Arctica - Which is a Symphonic Power Metal band from Finland.
Agalloch - A band from Oregon that mixes elements from Post-Rock, Neofolk, Black Metal, Folk Metal, Gothic Rock and more genres. This band's albums are all very different. So this band alone displays the great diversity in music.
Chasse-Galerie - A Black Metal band from QuÃ©bec.
Forteresse - Another Black Metal band from QuÃ©bec, but far more atmospheric than Chasse-Galerie and with more layered textures than Chasse-Galerie.
Crotchduster - They are an american parody band. They mix elements of Grindcore, Death Metal, Punk, Rap, Pop, etc. Funny and skilled musicians.
Fleshgod Apocalypse - Is a Technical Death Metal band with great Neo-Classical music elements in their riffs.
Darude - A well-known Techno artist with great skills.
Black Sabbath - You know they. They iniated Doom Metal and basically kick-started the whole Metal genre.
Kalmah - Finnish Melodic Death Metal band. They stand out by their great lead and rhythm guitar work and very melodic yet still agressive and creative song-writting.
Dream Theater - The Progressive Metal band who released the outstanding masterpiece that is the album Images & Words.
Aghora - They play a mix of Progressive Metal and Fusion Jazz. Interresting band that sadly... doesn't exist anymore...
LantlÃ´s - A band that mixes elements of Atmospheric Black Metal with Shoegaze.
Ulver - A band with a great discography. They started out as a Black/Folk Metal band, then moved forward to a rawer approach of Black Metal, than they moved toward Neofolk to finaly end up writting soundtracks for movies. They now play Ambient/Electronic music. Another good example of great diversity in music.
UFO - One of the most influential bands in Progressive Rock :)
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - One of the greatest bands in music. They write Post-Rock that doesn't sound anything like other Post-Rock bands. They have guitars, cellos, violins, bass. They are amazing and unique.
Should I go on ?
