Need new music suggestions - Please!

I have not been able to find any new music that I like. I was hoping that someone could provide some suggestions based upon the list of albums below that I have been listening to recently. They seem to be mostly late 80's/early 90's metal. Everything I have tried has either been too commercial or just flat boring.

Maybe those of you looking for different music can find some new suggestions here from me.

Thanks in advance

I Mother Earth - Dig
Corrosion of Conformity - Blind
Dream Theater - Images and Words
Alice In Chains - Dirt
Metallica - Puppets and Justice
STP - Core and Purple
Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power
Anthrax - Sound of White Noise
Pink Floyd - Dark Side through The Wall
System Of A Down - Mesmorize / Hyptonize <- only one near being current

And any progressive or funk metal that's good.

Based on your list, you'll shit when you hear Symphony X. I would suggest the album "Odyssey" to break you in.

Also, you just can't beat old Iron Maiden. Check out "Powerslave", "Piece of Mind" and "Number of the Beast." '80s metal don't get any better than those releases.

Kind Diamond is a love/hate band but I love them. If you like Anthrax, you'll love S.O.D.

Step aside, amateurs...

I'm just listing progressive shit, because I can't stand most 80s/early 90s metal/hair bands (aside from Tesla and Maiden, of course).

Dream Theater

Dominici (Dream Theater's original vocalist)

Porcupine Tree

Queensryche

Dead Soul Tribe

Kayo Dot (might be a bit left-field for most as it combines elements of jazz, classical, and metal)

Maudlin of the Well (Toby from Kayo Dot's first, and better, band)

Kings X

Redemption (they seem to like the shit out of Dream Theater as their music and vocals are quite a bit alike)

OSI (featuring Jim Mattheos, guitarist of Fates Warning who, strangely enough, I've not listened to and Kevin Moore, who is the old keyboardist of Dream Theater. Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater played drums on the first two releases, but Gavin Harrison of Porcupine Tree is playing drums on their next release, which comes out next month)

Liquid Tension Experiment (Portnoy, Petrucci, and Rudess from Dream Theater)

Pain of Salvation

Evergrey

Riverside

Giant Squid

3

Katatonia

Anathema


This stuff is progressive, but has shouted/growled vocals. Not too sure if you're into that sorta thing, but whatever...

Intronaut (Danny Walker is an excellent, excellent drummer!)

Gojira

Baroness (The dual guitar attack of The Red Album made album of the year for me in 2006)

Dillinger Escape Plan (their earlier stuff was pretty harsh, but their newer stuff contains some pop elements that make it a bit easier to listen to)

Opeth (If anything else, listen to the Damnation album -- it's the antithesis of heavy -- very 70s progesque)

Mastodon (they have gotten progressively mellower with each release, and their newest release, which is out next Tuesday, is really laid back from anything else they've ever done)

I'll second some things on this list. Old Opeth kicks serious ass, very original and creative. Liquid Tension Experiment is one of my favorites!! Amazing stuff from John Petrucci and Jordan Ruddess. Charlie Dominici is cool but his voice ain't what it used to be.

P.S. You spelled amature wrong.

Wow, Geor.... I haven't even heard of any of those bands, except for Queensryche. I'll have to look them up.

If I'm listening to older stuff, its usually just old rock... like what 92.5 plays.

More current bands I like include; Seether, Static-X, Taproot, Mudvayne, Shinedown, Switchfoot... there are others, but I'm having a brain fart lol

Currently the albums i'm listening too are
Attack Attack- Someday came suddenly
In Fear and Faith- Your world on fire
House vs Hurricane- Forfeiture EP
Before their Eyes- The Dawn of my Death
Run into the shadows- Don't even say a word

Not sure if this is the type of music you are looking for. It is just what i have playing on my iphone while i'm working.

Don't talk about it! Be about it!

I vote for Celine Dion and Hanson... Should fit in pretty well...

Try the new "Genius" feature on iTunes. It will make a playlist of a song you select that sound similar or are in other people's playlists. Cool shit. Also recommends other songs that you can download that are like the song. So then you can either buy them from iTunes or download them for free from your pirated version of limewire pro (i don't do this).
