@fduniho I saw them live with Davisson and I agree, that he was not a good substitute: He very much lacks the stage presence of Anderson and also his articulation is not so good. There is a guy on Youtube, who is much better than Davisson, his name is Tim Wardle
@crematedman Though you are a grasshopper there is an intersection in our musical taste, I also like QOTSA, RATM, and Sampha was introduced to me because of your posts in A-Z, one of my latest discoveries. From 1995 to present I don't know much music, but actually I am catching up with new music
For someone who was born in '98, what would you recommend me listen to so I can get a feel for the music of the past. I am currently 18, if that helps in any decision. I am interested in Hip Hop, Rock, Metal and Electronic, Let me know and suggestions. I am open to listening to new Music.
If you are into Rock and Metal, you for sure want to check out the most popular 80's Rock and Metal bands of the 80's. Pay close attention to bands that were part of The New Wave of British Heavy Metal 78, 79, 80, 81 years for focused direction. These early years are going to be a little tough as some of this classic material not all of it is on Spotify. Some of this early material is on Spotify but some of it is missing as well, early Def Leppard and Tygers of Pan Tang which hit the music scenes as heavy hitters in the early 80's, both band's classic material is missing on Spotify at least from a U.S. account.
A simple Google search should pull up several online music sources such as pitchfork, rolling stone magazine. These music sources should have a list of the top rock and metal albums of the 80's to check out. And if you want to go farther back, you might as well check out the top albums of the 70's decade in Rock and Hard Rock as well. Again a Google search will yield some similar search returns for albums to check out.
Also be sure to check out the break out bands of the early part of the 90's decade, this was where Grunge / Alternative Rock and Alternative Metal got it's big push, and several bands starting out made big names for themselves during the early years of that decade in Rock / Hard Rock / and Metal which moved into a new music genre known as Nu Metal. The 90's decade resulted in some artists getting influences from Industrial music at the time, picking up using sampling and other electronic type of music recording in Hard Rock and Metal forms, which helped opened up a whole new door and dynamic in this direction of music.
For electronic if you are into Industrial side of this music form, you can check out Skinny Puppy, Ministry, Rammstein, Chemlab, etc. A wiki list of Industrial bands that uses or used electronic as well as Rock / Hard Rock / and Metal musical influences.
