This is another post-nuke rehash, basically, the deal is, I recommend a band, you check it out, let me know what you think and then recommend a band, which is reviewed by the next guy/gal.

- THE BAND YOU ARE RECOMMENDING MAY NOT BE SIGNED TO A MAJOR LABEL!!
- Try to recomend only one or two songs, and make sure to let us know where to find them.

First Up:
Arizing (http://www.arizing.com) - They're a Metal Band from Eastern Michigan signed to Medea records.

I'd recommend downloading the song False Semester, which can be found here: http://216.194.97.67/arizingadvance/freemp3download/Arizing_-_False_Semester.mp3

That was a very solid song. The lead singers voice kind of reminds me of Billy Talent, to an extent.

Here's Mine.

It's a Nu-Metal Group from Stoney Creek called "LifeChild".

The song Addictions is the one i recommend because it's the newest and best.

Here is there new site, although not a whole lot there

http://www.lifechild.tk/

Here is their old site,

Last I heard, they had signed to an independent Canadian label, although I can't remember what the name was. They also did a song for a Short film that Premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.

Brock: Thanks for being the only one that followed instructions... so heres what I think of 'Addictions' by Lifechild: At first I was like 'Holy Linkin Park Batman' but the song went uphill from there. It was pretty cool, despite the obvious short-commings in recording quality.

If you liked Arizing give them a search on Kazaa. You can usually find a few songs on there, depending on whose online and whos not.

I believe their first album on Sony was The Moon And Antartica.

Yes, that was their major label debut. Epic's a division of Sony.

I sorry, I really should know more about what I listen to. The only reason why I remember this was because some guy was explaining to me why The Moon And Antartica sucked, and the record label was his biggest defense.

Whatever to that guy.

Also, sorry for obliterating the point of this thread. I'm getting some Soledad Brothers now. Anyone else can choose one of the albums I posted.

Actually, I really like what I've heard so far from the Soledad Brothers. Good, stripped, lo-fi rock, similar to the Black Keys and White Stripes.

Listeneng to 'Cadillac Hips' now.

Godspeed You Black Emperor! - f#a#oo (http://pitchforkmedia.com/record-reviews/g/godspeed-you-black-emperor/f-sharp-a-sharp-infinity.shtml)

Exactly the band I was going to suggest, and this very album too. Truly an outstanding band, very original and creative. It's a must.
