Ari Thanos is an alternative rock band from Flint, Michigan. Their music is very lighthearted generally, though at times it can be bursting with strong emotions. They have a very defined sound, which is really hard to find amongst the billion other "indie rock" bands. This particular album is only 6 tracks long, but it makes up for it with a high substance density. If I were you I'd get it. And then I'd comment on this post. But that's just me.

Trist is a one man band from the Czech Republic. He plays doom influenced Depressive Black Metal. This is his 3rd full length, only consisting of two songs. Repetition plays a key role here, allowing the basic structure of each song to be slowly built upon as it progresses. Great riffs, coupled by a solid atmosphere, and of course depressive/suicidal lyrical content. Though you would not understand what he's saying even if you spoke Czech... Anyways, if you like dark music here it is.
Now, I'm not much for metal (especially not progressive metal), but this shit is awesome. There is not a single song on this album that I can say I do not like. Very melodic and hypnotizing. This is my favorite album at the moment. You should definitely download it.

The Sega Dreamcast is arguably the best videogame console of all time. Even after the early death of the console in 2001, commercial game makers released games for the system that also ran on NAOMI arcade systems. Karous (japanese for Crow) was the last commercial game for the dreamcast, published by Milestone. Here's the kickass soundtrack. Good electronica/drum n' bass sound. Enjoy, nerds!
IAMERROR- Trout Yogurt is a technotic ( if thats even a real word) blend of hard core scream and well as already stated high speed techno, like in the song Snap Krako Pop. Its something for all those so called "cocky little freaks" to flock together and slam dance to. The rhythm and polor opposite mix of the music gives it that electrofying urge that most music such as My Chemical Romance could never achieve in a life time (someone please tell them to get a real job and quit their whole fake stage personality. We know its just a persona your payed to do but come on gain some dignity) IAMERROR is full of terrifying lyrics mixed with a more upbeat sound. Occasionally in their music their are slight bits where the song slows and the techno along with the hardcore either haven't started or fade to the back almost as if a true human being. Tough exterior soft interior, like in the song Jefferee Star Road where the beginning is a few seconds of slow easing music befor it jumps into the more complex part of the song. Overall the 2008 Trout Yougrt is an electrifying and as I've already said a blend of technotic (my new word) hard core with the slightest softness.
So lay in your bed gather your thoughts and find what strikes you about their music then get off your ass and tell someone about it.

god is an astronaut's latest album is as amazing as every single release from this band before it. truly inspiring music, one of the greatest post-rock bands out there, and my personal favorite. if you've been avoiding this band, download this so you can feel stupid for doing so.
download part 1
download part 2
edit: to extract all files you must download both parts and unrar the first one, i noticed part 1's been downloaded a lot more than part 2.
808s & heartbreak is a change of style for kanye west, a departure from his previous albums and well-known production style. i was expecting another graduation (kanye's previous record) and was surprised by this change of style, which felt right for someone so egocentrical and narcissistic as kanye, the album is really different from the current mainstream sound, yet appealing and surely destined to be a commercial success. i love this kind of record, mainstream ready and with enough artistic value.
linda martini is a portuguese post-rock band, and a very good one. right now i can vaguely remember i liked it a lot, that there were 3 guitar players and some chick. you're gonna love it if you're into god is an astronaut, which i think is one of the best post-rock bands out there. also, linda martini feautres vocals in some tracks, and they do it right, if you're into this kind of bands you know vocals in post-rock = win.
just a short way of saying I highly recommend this
Sorry I couldn't find an album cover over 200x200, so I used a cropped press pic. Thanks for commenting on the last two albums I uploaded. I'd love to see more activity in this place from everyone on the team. I love you guys! tiny p.s. I'm changing my name back to 'Puxel'
Njiqahdda are a Psychedelic Ambient Black Metal duo that immediately caught my attention with their unusual band name and album/song titles. What they've done is combined various languages (Nordic/Scandinavian/Germanic, Greek, Arabic and English languages and texts) into something that fits with the aesthetic they've made up for themselves. Their music is meant for spiritual and ritualistic purposes. Ambiance takes the lead role on most of their stuff that I've heard, creating great atmospheres, utilizing the tremolo picking, blast beats and distorted vocals in slow buildups to very powerful arcs. This was the first of 4 full lengths released by the band in 2008. They seem to have a lot of good ideas, and the ability to apply them well to this unique style.
Incredible album by neofolk band Death In June. They are among the most important, if not the most important band credited with the creation of the genre. This opus was the first one I heard and it still sits comfortably in my favourite albums list. A perfect place to start for anyone unfamiliar with DI6 and neofolk in general.

hocico's debut album from 1997, odio bajo el alma, is one of my favorite albums ever. i've been listening to this since middle school. it includes some of the band's most known tracks like odio en el alma and sexo bajo testosterona. though tracks like face to face and temple of lies are way better, dark industrial-influenced ebm. if you're into dark electro you'll love it, if you're not you should, this album is a good place to start.
Also, please leave a comment if you downloaded it. Even if you don't like it. I'm trying to gauge how many unique people visit this blog on a day to day basis.

This album is grounded in both free jazz and very structured compositions. Some moments jump out with many performers all improvising at once, a mash of the drums, horns, flute, bells all playing together (which would sound like a cacophony were they not so perfectly interwoven as they play off of one another), and while others move seamlessly as a cohesive unit, the songs still shine with individual flourishes from the performers beneath the surface.

Serbian KanibaL HolokausT is brothers, Nicifor Zlatic and Milan Miloshev. Since formation in 2003 the duo had only appeared on various compilations. Their first EP 'Baba Yaga' was released in June 2008. The band makes dark atmospheric psytrance. Various sound effects and samples over 150 - 180bpm bass lines. I downloaded this on a whim around when it was released, and I keep coming back to it. If you are into this style of music at all, don't miss out on KH.
C86 is a cassette compilation released by the British music magazine NME in 1986, featuring new bands licensed from independent labels of the time. As a phrase, C86 quickly evolved into shorthand for a guitar-based musical genre characterised by "jangly" guitars and fey melodies, although other musical styles were represented on the tape. Inspired by the DIY ideals of punk, it evolved into one of the most derided UK music genres in the last thirty years. It became a term of abuse for its associations withtweeness and underachievement, although some now argue that its release represents a pivotal moment for independent music in the UK.
Regarded by some as brilliant and the foundation of indie of the rock and pop kind for years to come, and by others as one of the worst things to happen to music there is no denying this legendary tape made a stir. Because you guys are all hipsters you will like it though. I like it.

downy is a japanese band often classified under the genres and sub-genres of post-rock, ambient, post-metal, shoegaze, sludge, and doom metal.
downy sounds like no other band I know. Very otherworldly, haunting, beautiful music. This is their third album. One of my favorite albums, and it just gets better the more I listen to it.

Caïna is Andrew Curtis-Brignell's musical outlet. His second full length, Mourner, was created in the hope that it would connect with the listener on a very personal level. The album is a blend of various sounds including but not limited to: post-rock, raw black metal, ambient, noise, and neofolk. This album marked a change in style for the band, namely releasing itself from the limitations of black metal, and moving towards experimentation and evolution.
Very good. I've been listening to this one for weeks on repeat.
i got this from waffles, and the uploader said the titles of the tracks and the album might not be correct as they're literal translations from japanese, and could not mean the same they did in japanese. also i think this is a remastered reissue of their debut album and includes two bonus tracks. ALSO, tracks are tagged as te' not té. but this album rocks. té is great.
femme fatality is a band formed by brothers alexander and monanani palermo in 2003. one's not enough is their sophomore album and it's full of fast beats and dirty synths, think an electro version of TAN!, ex-models and the chinese stars. a great album for fans of dance-punk and electro.
Smashing album. Bleep bloop and piano and various other instruments synergize to create a beautiful work of music.
