    .... Well, new for me lol. I know a lot of people will have heard of some of these bands, BUT for those who haven't they're worth mentioning.

    Encrypted Verbalist - I've done several tracks with this guy but before I even did one, I was a huge fan. I love the guy's voice, his writing, the whole package. I wish more hip hop was like that.. because he's the epitome of the things that attacted me to the genre in the first place.

    Pendulum - flippin AWESOME drum n bass crew from head knocking music. I just found a 2 hour mix set from The Essential Mix, after my fiance kept telling me to check them out, was blown away!

    Hot Bitch Arsenal - I actually reviewed them on and was completely stunned at both the vocals and the mix... THIS is the kind of sound I am aiming for eventually. Down to earth people as well. Make note of the fact they have all their tracks posted for download on their site and all they ask for is a couple drops in the bucket... I personally beelined for the CD based just on that lol.

    God Experiment - I love industrial music and this guy is hella creative in that department. Some great tracks on his page... he's definitely a unique individual.

    Linda Strawberry - Girl is all over myspace, I am really surprised that she's not a bit more well known in general. Solid songwriting and a gorgeous voice to go with it.She's also a great artist.

    Kilna - When I started out making electronic music he offered me some advice that helped me get started on vsti, and he's a really creative guy. The music is very cool stuff.

    The Garden of Ian - Encrypted Verbalist turned me onto this guy because he had collabed with him and was a fan. Great voice and songwriting.

    The Gutter Twins - I am a big lover of goth music but it can all start to sound the same after a while... enter these guys. Anyone who loves either bluesy rock or goth music would love these guys... amazing writing/music/voice it's the whole package!

    Collide - I bought the Chasing the Ghost disc I love these guys so much... their cover of White Rabbit is amazing... also love Lunatics. Hell I love it all lol that's why I bought the cd!

    Post Zygote Project - Discovered these guys on Music Nation, they're from WAY Northern Ontario, and have a wicked polished sound considering they aren't signed to a label.. also bought that cd ;)

    Bwicked - I loved this guy's style immediately, I have his page bookmarked lol.

    Okay so that's it for now... if anyone goes and checks out some of these bands, lemme know what you think. Definitely curious to see if anyone else thinks alike ;) I'll add more bands later as I think of them... my favorites list is forever growing lol.

    More to add (sorry, in need of a distraction) lol

    Angel Anderson - Helluva voice... found her when I was reviewing tracks on slice, knew before the track was done I'd have to hunt more down.

    The French Semester - Indie/Shoegaze sound, I've been following their myspace a while now... pretty awesome stuff.

    Otto's Daughter - Great driving industrial metal sound... female singer with a kickass voice.

    the tleilaxu music machine - Very unique guy, admittedly a weirdo lol... awesome music, I think mrrobot might like this dude, it kinda reminds me of some of his tracks.

    The Strand - Industrial music and costumes... what's not to love?! hehe awesome tracks on their page actually. Def worth checkng out if you like industrial electro.

    Abney Park - I found these guys when I came across their version of Stigmata Martyr (which when I saw the title thought was gonna be a Bauhaus cover-wrong) turns out it's a diff song and good one at that.

    K that's it for now I'll add more when they come to me (which is actually way too often!) lol

    Yeah Wumpscut are wicked... love War. More artists to mention (good god I really am a music addict!)

    KMFDM - I know a lot of people know about them but there could be the odd one that doesn't cause it took me til last year to discover them.

    VNV Nation - Love the meaning of the group's name - Victory not Vengeance. They have some really killer tracks, I think my favorites would be Beloved and Entropy... and of course Chrome.

    Icon of Coil - Actually fairly new discovery too but I love them

    Apoptygma Berzerk

    Combichrist - kinda sado/masochist themed stuff... but still some great tracks.

    Wolfsheim - been around a long time but another one I only heard of last year... really love Once in a Lifetime.

    Last year around June I started going to the alternative nightclub here in town... I already listened to a lot of the music, but it sooo expanded my knowledge of what was out there... I'm going to miss them when I move cities.

    (for anyone who wants to check it out lol)
