has anyone got any good rec's for some bands? i'm hitting a slump in Music these days and nothing is really exciting me, i cant seem to latch onto a new good band, i want something (pref) american/noisey/heavy... something to really put the MP3 player thru its paces... Any american's on the board recommend anyone? i have a feeling ye got loads of em but they dont really filter thru to "Damien Rice/Bell X1" infected Ireland
Help?

Not super noisy or loud, but Autolux is an amazing band inspired by Sonic Youth, so I suppose you can check them out.

not sure if you've heard them already but kyuss (Blues for the red sun seems to be the one everyone loves, although i'm more of a ...circus leaves town fan), Sleep (dopesmoker for one looooooong monster of a track or holy mountain for more conventional album structure but still heavy stuff), high on fire (ex-sleep), om (ex-sleep), others include sunn o))), earth, bongzilla, clutch, mastodon, pelican

from the uk:gonga (pretty much a kyuss rip off but still good) hawkwind (from the 70s but still heavy, check out space ritual) sabbath (goes without saying)

less metal-y but still heavy and noisy: jesus lizard, melvins, burning brides, tomahawk, icarus line

there's some good heavy stuff in ireland too, you just have to know where to look,

http://www.badboat.net/
http://www.hexxed.co.uk/

http://www.traceramc.co.uk/index.php (the closest irish band to sonic youth that i know of)

Check out Black Eyes if you haven't already. They were a great band from DC with two killer full lengths on dischord.

mp3s:
http://www.southern.com/southern/ban...e_positive.mp3
http://www.southern.com/southern/ban...ers_broken.mp3

and a video that is really cool, but still doesn't really exhibit how amazing their live show was:

I agree with whoever said to listen the American bands:
Comets on Fire
Om
High on Fire
Sleep
Wolf Eyes
Mastodon
Sunn 0)))

and would like to add some Australian stuff:

Whitehorse (doom metal band that are so good even my girlfriend likes them)

Menstruation Sisters (bass, drum/vocal duo that really know how to say fuck you to music)

Scientists (there is the catchy punk era and the more heavy sludgy era. Check out the song Human Jukebox)

The Birthday Party

Grey Daturas -touring with Wolf Eyes in Australia. Instrumental noise rock band that rule.

Laughing Clowns - Ed Kupper's band after he left the Saints in 77 or 78. Post Punk with free jazz and big band sounding horns. Kinda of like Pere Ubu with a more normal sounding singer.

Plus heaps more stuff your not going to find anywhere.
