Buying a Zune, will arrive after Christmas
« on: November 25, 2007, 07:56:03 AM »
I bought a Zune online for 100.00 US (They normally go for 200 US or like 150 on ebay) and got a good deal.  But I have an ipod 2gb right now with about 180 songs and I'm too picky but I dont want to have a 30gb player with only 200 songs so I need some suggestions on good music.  I love rock, specifically progressive (bands like tool, a perfect circle, staind are a few).  You guys have some suggestions for me, i'm to picky so I'll listen to anything thats in english and give it a shot.

Instrumentals are fine.  What do you guys think?
I like stuff that doesnt talk about demons and darkness by the way :|
This is going to take a long time

keep in mind that this list is very eclectic and it's not meant to match the bands you mentioned ;)

Well... i don't search anymore for "similar" music. Most times i did it i have been disappointed by results.
I like APC too, but more than liking what they share with Tool, i like what they don't.
Having a look at this, you won't find that much matching your question IMO (lots of great bands there, anyway).
The only band i would tell sharing similar mood and problems and sound (except for voice) in that map is Opeth, for which i can suggest Blackwater Park (although i know only an half of their discography).
Another at-any-degree similar band is the czeck Animé, which you can listen to. I'm not advising them, it's just an answer to your query.

If you want to listen to something different, with very heavy feelings, try Sunwar the dead, by Elend. You need a good hi-fi, but it can crush your spirit. It's like someone who is having not a happy day without making me think about youth problems (which most bands do). Something you will love or hate.

On the genre Tcube advices, i liked "Melody A.M." a lot, by Röyksopp.

Checking out Opeth (heard some) I think apc is sort of weak compred to tool and also I dont listen to alot of their songs because they are blatantly defiant to christianity with songs like 'Judtih' but still some of it is good.

As far as czeck Anime, I got this nice little messsage:

Sorry, the free service is at full capacity. 
  I'll wait it out or try again tomorrow.

I laughed at what Foggy said unless he was serious, then I'm sad ;| Opeth, hmm..

Edit: Wow Rejetto you were right so far, all of it is fairly complex thus far, thanks.
