I'll start with this one I've caught on Pandora as I'm doing my "D&D thing". I thought it was good as well being fun/funny. John C. Reilly- My son John

EDIT: I felt like mentioning I'm not trying to steal any Classic Rock Thunder, just opening up a little "diverse city". *Attempting to avoid toes as I stumble about since 1987*

Alas, I have failed at the one thing I'm good at!(stepping on them toes)

An excellent choice, The Chieftains have so much good music!

It's been years since I've heard this, I liked it especially after I had read The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings and the Silmarilion(sp?). They have a song specifically titled "Lord of the Rings"... I think the song did a better job of telling the story than the Peter Jackson movies(just an opinion). It also might be worth mentioning these guys do a lot of metal stuff, which these songs are not, and could throw you off them at first.

Had to include it since I mentioned it. The Lord of the Rings - Blind Guardian

Glad to see I'm not the only one around here loving that/this kind of music!

I've started watching "The Shannara Chronicles" and I thought the intro/theme song was awesome, so here it is.

I was born and raised in Seattle, WA. I was eighteen years old in 1991 when Nirvana, as well as Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden blew up. There were a half dozen or so all ages clubs (which weren't really all ages 'cause you had to be at least eighteen) open at the time, so I started going to see many music shows around that time. Yeah, the Seattle music scene became overhyped, but when I hit twenty-one (and could get into more shows at alcohol serving venues) I discovered that a person could go out pretty much any night of the week and find a probably fairly obscure, but quality music artist.
I first saw a band called Sky Cries Mary in '91, on a six band bill to benefit the Rape Relief orginization. Of the six bands, I remember enjoying them the most.
I can't remember when my second time seeing them occurred, but I know that I went to that show specifically see them. I liked them even better that second time and after that made a point to see as many of their shows as possible, and would continue to do so. I started telling anybody who would listen about them, because in addition to playing excellent music they also put on a really interesting visual presentation.
At first, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains all got labeled by many as alternative music, as in really different from the mainstream. I don't happen to agree with that. While I personally don't much care for Pearl Jam, they are all fine bands, but for whatever my opinion is worth Sky Cries Mary deserves that description more. Sky Cries Mary is a seven piece band, who like many bands, has had a few member changes over the years. According to their website one of their members has moved on to be the new vocalist for the well known band Yes. The band is anchored by the husband and wife combination of Anisa and Roderick Romero. The band uses keyboards, samples and bongo drums (sometimes) in their music. It is hard to verify this, but they claim to have presented the first live online concert back in the '90's. They were musical guests on the John Stewart Show before he did the Daily Show.
One of their biggest fans is none other than Krist Novoselic, former bassist for Nirvana. He actually has had something to do with the studio work for one or more of their latest albums. In fact, back in 2000 I was at a SCM show, standing near the back of the venue. I turned around and there he was. I did a double take. I didn't ask him (or say anything to him actually), but I'm pretty sure he had come in late in order to try and not draw attention to himself while SCM was onstage.
From the studio album This Timeless Turning, here is 'These Old Bones'. Hope you enjoy.

An excellent choice, Female+male vocals for the win. I'm just south of Washington but have missed out on a lot of the awesome bands in the area. The best I've managed was a pretty good concert in Washington that included Rob Zombie, Korn and Hatebreed. Personally the best part of the show was that John 5(a long time guitarist with Marilyn Manson) was playing with Rob Zombie; He's very skilled in my opinion and it kinda blew my mind. Figure I'd just include one of the few experiences I've had, heh. However, If were this a competition I would humbly surrender as your story kicked some ass :D



A recently popular song(Sail- by Awolnation) done by the band Devildriver. I much prefer this version and was glad to find it as I had become tired of the other versions.
DevilDriver - Sail

AND I found this band/song to the side while I was listening. I thought these guys were pretty interesting, plus I love Heavier Metal with female vocals.
Unleash the Archers- Tonight We Ride

And this came on as I typed this so it's on here to! I need to wrap this up before I get caught in a loop :O

I've seen John 5 as the featured guitarist twice on That Metal Show. Yes, he's very good IMO.

Here is a song from an industrial band that I'm pretty fond of called Mentallo & the Fixer.
From the Continuum album, here's 'Perish in Peril' https://youtu.be/pSHGMXkfWrg
I was going to post a heavier one of their numbers to show their versatility, but the song I had in mind is unavailable for sharing. If you want to check it out for yourself it's called 'Narcotic'. In fact almost all of the songs off of the Where Angels Fear to Tread album are pretty rough.
