Arterial Black by Drist
I heard this song in *sigh* yes, another YouTube video. I don't mean to be stereotypical, but it just seems exactly like the kind of song a guy would listen to, distortion and a crazy guitar solo. It's pretty fast-paced too. I love it, it's really good, and I think nu-metal lovers might appreciate it as something soft XD
Speaking of nu-metal, all my life I have been opposed to the band KoRn, seeing as their reputation is pretty bad. A boy in Michigan apparently got suspended just for wearing their shirt, but the band keeps such good ties with their fanbase, they got him reinstated :D I listened to these songs by them:
Falling Away from Me, Make Me Bad, Got the Life, and Clown
I loved it! It's really awesome. It's a smoother, more intense kind of metal. Still loud and metal-y, but not the same. I bought their album "Greatest Hits Volume I" and have been listening to it practically non-stop for the past few days. I strongly advise it to people who listen to things along the lines of metal.
With 7-string guitars tuned lower than most basses, they have a really intense distorted sound. Minor keys are brought to glory by their songs, and after a while, you'll realize Jonathan Davis has THE MOST unique voice ever. He can go from freaky full-throated yelling to sweet high-pitched tones in a switch. Despite their cursing and drinking lives, you'll learn to appreciate this freaky unique brand of music. I swear it <3
The Rat by Dead Confederate
This song is another alternative rock song, pretty slow, with a freakishly disturbing music video. Their album, Wrecking Ball, was an album, so as far as I know, they only have two songs... or that's all I've found. Their other song is Start Me Laughing, and it's pretty opposite to this song, with it's clean guitars and sweet mellow rhythm. The singer has a really freaky *in a good way* voice, so even though the lyrics apparently say "...on all the days" it sounds like "... on all the da-lees!" It fits though, and in a way the genre reminds me of the song Wolves at Night by Manchester Orchestra. The band has preformed this song on the "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" show too!
Ghetto Love by Spinnerette
I heard this song on Alt Nation, the alternative rock station of satellite radio. If you really like AltRock, I would suggest buying satellite radio just to listen to this channel! It's pretty amazing. This song is catchy. Cool mellow-voiced female singer, awesome bass line, thumping drum beats, a guitar on some freaky sound setting. It sounds awesome. The singer's voice is layered near the end, and it's one of my favorite parts of the song. It's one of those songs that is almost guaranteed to stick in your head at least once or twice.
NOW FOR SOME OLD THREE DAYS GRACE SONGS!!
These are some songs I found on the Home album.. I'm not sure if that's what it's called, but its the one with a house burning in the background and three human-ish figures standing there. It has almost all of their famous songs, Home, I Hate Everything About You, Just Like You, the usual, you know? But I listened to it and found a junk-load of other great songs! Here they are:
Burn, Let You Down, Take Me Under, and Now or Never. If you want more, go out and buy the album!!
