...so what else is out there for me to discover? Which other bands are doing this kind of thing?
Thanks in advance
but Cutting Pink With Knives and Help She Can't Swim have a similar sound, but slightly more pop and electro than said bands
Help She Can't swim sound as much like DEP as Brian Molko sounds like Barry White. I like both bands but they are seriously nothing alike.
apart from the liking both bands bit. Dillinger are astoundingly good.
There has to be another band with the initials DEP.
Dogs encounter Ponies
Daisy's Ecstacy Parade
Don't Ever Panic
I don't know if they are bands - but they should be.
their first album is a bit similar to the locust.canada songs its called
but my ipod tried to play me a track today whilst on shuffle. I lasted .3 of a second before skipping it. I have a headache. It is not headache music.
at virtually every show.
Wouldnt be hard. Fuck TFOT.
Mainly because they're better in just about every way.
Fear Before The March of Flames - Art Damage
Every Time I Die - Hot Damn!
Orthrelm and Psyopus might well float your boat.
trencher are a bit like the locust but with less sass.
tigers! are a band from leeds who did one great 7" which is worth tracking down.
a lot of the other bands that jp from the locust was in sound like the locust. apart from the swing kids (who are better then the locust) and struggle who i think are a hardcore band.
for bands that sound like DEP get a copy of "we are the romans" by botch. then give up listening to any tech hardcore metal stuff because it's better than everything else.
isn't really tech is it? I mean it has it's mathmatic moments (and is brilliant), but it doesn't sound impossible to play like alot of dillinger stuff.
it is fairly tech to a point - lots of time signatures, loops and tepping. mainly i didn't want to say metalcore because it makes me think of avenged sevenfold.
I do like the way they use 5 in a bar like any normal person would use 4. They really want an extra beat to shout in.
...and Mass Movement Of The Moth are good bets if you like all things Locust (although MMOTM's earlier EPs are far more "spazzy" than the album).
possibly even better live than DEP and locust
i need to give holy molar a listen
They remind me of The Locust, although they don't actually sound that similar.
But these are good:
An Albatross, Daughters, The Post Office Gals, Some Girls, Holy Molar, Das Oath, Love Like... Electrocution, Loma Prieta, Trencher
they are awesome though
I forgot about Melt Banana. Shall be seeing them next week!
i think you owe me a drink. i'm not sure why. but i'm sure you do.
most of the bands on Three One G Records.
by the blood brothers, if you haven't got that already.
and circle takes the square are good in places.
Aotea and Stand by For Action are probably worth checking out as well
i think both bands have split, but theyre both still awesome
The Number Twelve Looks Like You.
I'd recommend the album Nuclear.Sad.Nuclear
Gay For Johnny Depp are incredible. Definitely recommend them.
and GFJD are pretty rocking too
Bloody brilliant live as well.
Murder of Rosa Luxemburg
Tower of Rome
Plot to Blow Up the Eiffel Tower
i haven't heard 'judas goats and dieseleaters' yet. is it as good as 'its a shame..' because that album's amazing.
Ed Gein album is really good. I would try and get hold of but its loads more of a straight up grind record, that is prob why i still prefer 'Its a shame..'
spazzy type power violence stuff too
The Plot to blow up the eiffel tower
Not really anything like either Converge or DEP, but still awesome.
As The Sun Sets
Curl Up And Die
Me and Him call it Us
i'd also recommend xbxrx
Between the Buried and Me
The Red Chord
From A Second Story Window
Straying a little bit, but you might like them.
Down I Go
Fuck the Facts
Orgone - The album these guys released last year is absolutely frickin' amazing.
Not listened to them guys in ages.
Old Cuts and Blunt Knives and Red on Chrome were both brilliant records.
Didnt think much of Son of Sulphur though.
records. also really like what i have heard of Cloacal Kiss and Sawtooth Grin maybe add these as well:
Executive Distraction Tasks
The Motel Bible
they're a deathgrind Dillinger that write almost exclusively about weed. Awesome.
or something like that
like italian jazz metal
they sacked two members
the remixes are less good
I saw them supporting DEP, or someone.
They were ... entertaining.
he's gone now. hopefully not to the other side
Can only properly remember the Italian cliche guitarist.
but was only in the band for the time of The Painters Palette album/subsequent tours.
Last time I saw them (Oct 06 perhaps) their new drummer was reading sheet music while playing. Never seen that before.
They opened for DEP back in 2004. Poison the Well were in the middle. That gig was amazing.
"He was 50 and a jazz drummer"
Damn, I wanted to post that but you got there first.
Good band by the way.
The Painters Palette is one of my favourite albums.
Can't wait to see where they go with the next album which they're about to record.
But nothing like DEP or The Locust..
and thought it referred to Dave Benson Phillips. Gungecore!
...the following are worth checking out:
Tower Of Rome
Tusk (specifically their first album Get Ready. Their latest album and some of the one before are not like this at all)
not anything like them really, but im listening to them now and they are fucking awesome
Are mint, yeah...but it's embarrassing/annoying that they're the buzz band in hardcore at the moment, for everyone to name check to prove dey is ol skool!
like lightning bolt, if they were slightly... ermmm doomier? with vocals.
i can't explain anything, but.. yeah. FUCKING AWESOME
seeing as half these bands now are nothing like The Locust (who are shit by the way) and DEP, I'll say Transistor Transistor, Norma Jean, 1000 Travels Of Jawaharlal, everything's been said
You called the Locust shit and recommended NORMA JEAN?!?
Most of the bands have been said already.
black cobra fitted in with those two.
it was just an incredibly lazy description.
being clubbed to death by a cave-troll with a solid gold sledgehammer.
Best description ever.
than half of the stuff mentioned in this thread.
Agoraphobic Nosebleed yet. So 'Agoraphobic Nosebleed' I think.
but Naked City are well worth a listen. I'd be very surprised if DEP and other bands of this ilk weren't influenced by them.
Also, The Boredoms.
(if they havent already been said)
are immense! Their last record was amazing, although I wouldn't really count them among the legion of Converge/DEP soundalikes - they're definitely more of a pure death/grind outfit.
I read somewhere yesterday that they're releasing a new LP this year, can't wait!
Another Wes Eisold project, bit more like Error though.
I love XO Skeletons!
Slightly more punky but chaotic and brilliant.
I dont get why The Plot to Blow Up The Eiffel Tower have been mentioned so much. They sound nothing at all like either band.
