Need new music, and has he heard of rock and roll, I believe the new term is Rock and/or Roll???
Here's some good shit:
36 Crazyfists: Alaskan metal/hardcore, get the Snowcapped Romance album, it's delicious.
In Flames: pretty much any album will do
Shadow's Fall: Newer Metal with guitar solos
Dreamtheater: if your into progressive rock? Which you may be, since you dig tool/perfect circle.
Disturbed: Good shite, new album coming out
Resident Evil Soundtrack: Thsi is a damned good soundtrack, from start to finish. Go to a record store and listen to it, you won't be upset.
Soilwork is tasty
Killswitch Engage is engaging on some accounts. Some of their stuff is shit, in my opinion
The new Atreyu is unreal from start to finish. The Cursed is the album......ahhh if that doesn't make you want to lift 900 pounds from the ground, I'm not sure what will.
Snapcase is delightfull. From old to new.
Old Refused is a good album: For the life of me, I can't remember what it's called, ahh yes, I think it's sounds from the revolution or something to that effect. They have an excellent style, the lead singer is now in The International Noise Conspiracy, which interestingly enough I don't like as much.
Propagandhi: how to clean everythign album, less cock more rock album, both gems. You might not be able to find it though, it's on FAT Wreck Chords, LA
Good Riddance: All tasty licks
Strung Out: the newest stuff is unreal good
Anyways, that's a quick list....shoudl get you started.
Enjoy all those "tasty licks, spawned from the hellfires of gluttons and thieves...."
