I know a lot of people whose method of finding new music is going to YouTube, and looking at related videos for music videos. This makes me feel like this.
Instead I recommend a service called TasteKid. You type in a bunch of bands you like and it recommends some bands you might like! It's like going to a music message board without a bunch of idiots calling you a plebe. Now oftentimes it will spit out a bunch of bands you know of and maybe even like, just didn't include. But if you get VERY SPECIFIC you'll find some real gems. I found out about Cannibal Corpse, Streetlight Manifesto, Choking Victim, and the beloved Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains this way. Seriously. So, right now I'm going to input every band I've positively reviewed on my blog and see what it comes up with... just wait. It gets kind of difficult to find bands you don't know about/listen to the more you use it, or the more music you listen to.
Clearly this is a problem I have.
Now, I put in all of those bands on TasteKid. These were there recommendations. I crossed out the ones I am familiar with or already listen to.
(Yes, one of those crossed out bands is "Goatwhore.")
So I invite you to go to TasteKid and try it out. If you find anything you like tell us here in the comments! I love you guys!
Oh, and my Misfits tattoo was featured on the most recent edition of Tattoo Tuesday on Zombies Eveywhere, a most excellent blog about zombie fandom. Go check it out!
