This thread is being created so that our members can widen their music tastes and be introduced to some awesome bands.
The rules of the thread are simple, just recommend a band that is one of your personal favourites and couple that with a little information about said band. Tell them what sort of style they are, recommend a few random songs for people to download and try out, tell people which album is the best to buy,and link them to the band's website. The band don't have to be particularly obscure, there's plenty of awesome and popular bands that some people may have missed but obscure bands are certainly encouraged as well.
Try to keep this thread on topic and only add replies that comment on bands that have already been mentioned or that add your own recommendations.
Please try and not recommend more than one band every couple of days so that this thread can keep going on for a long time. The more detail you give in your post the better, see my next post for a good example.
