I started a post in recommendations http://www.metal-archives.com/board/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=106789 and it was locked, with no explanation of why. If I had broken the rules, I'd like to know so I don't continue to do so.

The last post/img pretty much sums it up. You aren't looking for anything specific you are asking for people to present you with a ton of bands of broad genres. At least attemp to use the huge genre recommendation threads scrolling through them. Or taking those bands you do know and like and going on this site and looking at similar artists tabs.

I did slog through those posts. Do you realize how much of a pain in the ass it is to find anything close to what you're looking for in a post that has hundreds of pages and thousands of replies? Sorry I don't have a month to go through each post. Also, I did mention that I checked the "similar bands" sections. Most of them are irrelevant bands that are not too similar or empty entirely. I figured instead of making 5 or 6 separate posts, I'd condense it into one post. I listed the top 5 bands for each genre. They weren't more specific then that because I'm not gonna list a ton of bands.

The similar artists tab works great if you have patience. Otherwise, broad, sweeping requests lacking in specificity are very much frowned upon in the recommendations board.

Hey look, another locked thread!
