New music discoveries

I've recently been going all out to find new music and thought we could use a thread giving each other a head's up on new music we may not have heard of.By new I mean to you,since we have such a variance of ages here I'm sure that some of us may be aware of the artists mentioned but nonetheless I'd like to get an idea of other stuff out there.

If you'd like to add a link or copy and paste an article that'd be great.


I'm going to start with Earl Slick and I can't say enough good about his project Zig Zag.10 songs in all the project includes a few instrumentals as well as some special guest singers including David Bowie whom Earl has played with.My personal favs are the songs 1735 and Zig Zag.

Here's a little more about him.

Earl Slick: Six String Outlaw

The image of the journeyman guitarist is one of modern day rock and roll folklore. The idea of the lone gunslinger, a six string outlaw that brings their magic to all the world's stages before riding off into the sunset leaving us to wonder when they will return.

Earl Slick has been an in demand guitarist for the better part of 30 years having played on the most pivotal of albums by none other than David Bowie (David Live, Station To Station), John Lennon (Double Fantasy, Milk And Honey) and Ian Hunter (Overnight Angels). However, after years of constant touring and recording, Earl was exhausted spiritually and creatively and headed off for a much-needed break in the early 90s.

Disappearing for a few years, Earl was on the road once again with David Bowie in the summer of 2000 and has remained with the band touring numerous times and appearing on Bowie's "Live At The BBC Theatre" and "Reality" albums.

Having his creativity sparked by this recent activity, Earl began writing in earnest, the results of which produced his sterling new album "Zig Zag". Eager to talk about his first solo album in 12 years, Earl Slick graciously spoke to MusicTAP recently before finishing the first US leg of Bowie's "Reality Tour"

That said I've recently come across the band Spock's Beard.I'm assuming others have heard of them(especially if you love progressive rock)and if you have when did you start listening to them?

Personally,I downloaded songs from each of their projects yesterday and am listening to them as I type this.I'm really loving their sound.
I've heard Spock's Beard. I used to be a regular on the Dream Theater board, and I got introduced to them there. When I first listened to their albums, I found them talented, but underwhelming. But the way the DT fanbase kept gushing about them as if they were godlike helped to nudge me from "underwhelmed" to "can't friggin' stand them!" Same goes for Pain of Salvation.

These guys aren't new, but their new song is pretty good. I saw the vid on Headbanger's Ball last Saturday and then downloaded the song. The band is Mushroomhead and the song is "Simple Survival" from the album "Savior Sorrow". I am not a fan of theirs, but this song is pretty good!!!! (IMO) I played it at a gig last weekend, and had a lot of questions on what song this was and who sang it. A mushroomhead fan had never heard it before, and really liked it.

I could give a rat's butt about the vocals. The kids on the guitars have some chops.

Hey, whatever floats your boat. I'm not criticizing you for your tastes, I'm criticizing that band based on my tastes.

Old Trivium = some of the worst harsh vocals ever

New Trivium = pretty good James Hetfield impersonation

I never could get into Trivium. Dragonforce is good, and Henry Li is one badass little British Chinaman, one of the better speed players out there. The only problem I have with them is that there is an overriding sameness to about 95% of their catalogue, a problem that admittedly afflicts a lot of power and speed metal bands.

Are you still listening to them? Which album should I start with? Snow looks like it's their "masterwork"
I have to be honest here,I've downloaded a little bit of all their music and made a couple of compilation cd's of the stuff I like the best.I do have a concert DVD they put out not along though on my Christmas list.

As for some other music I've come across lately that I'm really liking

Alias Eye

Watermelon Slim

Angels and Airwaves

Enigma

Yeah,that's why I titled the thread New Music Discoveries,doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a new band just new to you and somehow Enigma got by me but thanks to a friend I recently got introduced to them.
