These guys missed the Seattle grunge explosion because they, as a band, all went to rehab at the same time. They attend NA and AA meetings. Meanwhile, there was some band named, Nirvana?, I think that was conquering the world.

These guys are the band all the other grunge bands wanted to be! The reason grunge bands do not do guitar solos is because nobody could match up to them. Minor popularity, they get a mention in the movie Singles as being the opening act for which ever Dillion that was. And they are still referred to as the "grand daddys of grunge" so that is something I guess. This is from the last of the "classic" Sweet Water-sounding albums as they ended up firing their guitarist for indulging in [some unstated substance]. From that album, Superfriends...

Sweet Water - Cake and Strychnine

I forgot nothing. I just didn't want to overwhelm everyone by mentioning too much awesome in one thread.

Soilwork is a great band! You know, for when you are in that mood to just rock! The drummer is awesome! And the fact the singer wears one my favorite band's t-shirt on stage is icing on the cake! That band, New Model Army.

They really are a great band! Coincidentally enough, I found them looking for Soil songs. Never heard them on a bill in my area but I'll keep a look out, assuming they are still together and touring.

As far as I know they are still touring. My buddy is huge fan. We always watch a u-tube concert when I hang out with him which is where I pointed out the NMA shirt. Looks like Justin Sullivan sang on one of their albums too. Now to track my friend and borrow his CD (just to see what the cover looks like, of course! lulz).

They do a lot of the festival circuit during the summers in Europe.

Some awesome bands here, thanks for all the input! Keep 'em coming


If any of you are Deftones fans, check out Crosses, another one of Chino's side projects.

I remember when White Pony came out. Then I remember hearing Passenger and my mind kind of shook. Trying to rationalize what I heard with my preconceived notions on life, I was 17 and thought I knew everything. What a great album even till this day.

Midway still...best live band I ever saw better then the band they supported Nirvana.

I was never really into them until college. One of my roomates LOVED My Own Summer and played it constantly. I listen to them a lot now, made myself a nice little playlist on Spotify. I think the thing that draws me to them the most is their ability to change a little bit with each album but retaining their sound.

I have not heard much of their new work, I will probably play it tonight at work since I am here for another 8 hours


I love Crosses tho!

Thanks for this! I like this song and will have to check out the rest of their stuff. Kind of reminds me between a cross of The Offspring and Bad Religion.

Meshugga's new CD is awesome! The Drumwork is mindbending. They were here in Denver about two weeks ago..

Yes! The violent sleep of reason is an awesome album! I do love their complicated insanity. Haven't had the chance to see them live yet but they're def on the list.
