Band Recommendations

I thought I’d make a thread for people to ask for recommendations for particular bands. I’ll start. I’m looking for bands like Galneryus, and Concerto Moon.

Projects of other Galneryus members might be worth checking out

Yuhkinen (keyboardist YUHKI)

Alhambra (also YUHKI)

Rekion (ex-vocalist Yama-B)

Gunbridge (Yama)

VALKYR (guitarist Syu)

SPINALCORD - also has material released as Aushvitz (Syu)

Syu also has two solo albums that are both really good

Yeah. I should have clarified that since I know pretty much all the non Japanese ones.

IRON ATTACK! I dunno how they compare to the current GALNERYUS, but I feel like IRON-CHINO really understands the nerdy yet earnest 80s metal dad energy YAMA-B brought to the band, and that was the main thing that I liked about GALNERYUS, tbh. Plus you get a wide selection of different vocalists to break things up a bit, and I think they’ve all got their charms.

Nothing in particular but I’m getting tired of my library, anything similar to any of these artists:

Neil
La cryma christi
Auncia
Baroque
Chanty
Janne Da Arc
Laputa
Xenon

Or if you just think there’s a really good artist I should check out anyway then let me know.

I like Aurora and Gechena and also Siva and related projects if you don’t mind disbanded.
