Unable to go any further : all the 8 most similar artists have already been listed !

Interesting facts :
- there are only a few bands I have never heard of, and only a bit more I don't listen to regurlarly, so overall, that list will not make me discover many news bands... I guess that's what happens when your favorite genres are so underground and not mainstream...

- From roughly 4 to 35, the artist are mostly synthpop, before reverting to dark electro, making a kind of loop... I think I'll try another list taking the FIRST similar artist and see if I can get out of that loop... or if I end up in a dead end again.

- speaking of the dead end itself, I was planning to keep going up to 50, but it confirms that my favorite music genres make a very small scene, with bands closely connected together. A rather sad fact, IMO... I wish more people would listen to, like and MAKE such music, instead of rap/hip hop/rnb/techno/pop/rock...

    Just 'cause it's a small genre doesn't make it uncool. :) It takes a talented artist[s] to make good synthpop.

    Well I do like some synthpop bands, but I was simply surprised to notice that the chain went so quickly to synthpop and then REVERSED back to dark electro. Funny.

    I agree a 100% with you. We seem to have a somewhat similair music taste, and it feels like I see the same old (not saying they're bad) bands over and over again here on The latest band I found that was good in the harsh/dark electro-genre was Derma-Tek and that was some months ago. Hopefully 2007 will reveal itself as a good year for darker electronic music with many new artists in the genre! cheers!

    Hi Cryon, and thx for your comment. If you're looking for new bands to discover, you may want to have a look at my previous journal entries. I'm pretty sure you'll like what you'll find... ;-)

    Wow, perhaps my tastes/musical range is ALOT wider then I thought not only have I heard of pretty much every single band, I like most of them. The only one I don't think i've ever listened to, whose name I recognize, is Xotox #41...?!? Interesting, however being someone knowledgable of the above list, I totally see your point, although the similiar artist tool is alot better then on some other sites, which give some of the most obscure/bizarre references. But, for instance Panzer Ag & Combichrist are both projects from Andy Laplegua- so i'd have assumed they would've been right next to each other, closely followed with Icon of Coil (also a band fronted by the same man) Oh well, I can probably suggest some names, if you're ever looking to stumble onto some groovy new tunes *hehe*

    Hi Killing_Dawn, and thanks for your input ! xotox is a industrial/powernoise band not unlike Feindflug, but without the war imagery. I warmly suggest Psi if you wanna give a try. :-) And as for suggestions, yours are, of course, welcome. ;-)

    Alrighty, to make this a bit easier on myself, since I don't know who and/or what you've heard of- i'm going to assume you're main genres of interest are Noise & Harsh EBM. And, with that in mind, i'm going to private message you with a fairly long(ish) list of recommendations...?!? Wait for it *winks*
