Here are my current top ten favorite modern rock bands. I'm posting a one song Youtube link for each band so people can get a taste for them. However, it doesn't mean these are my top favorite songs from each band.WITHIN TEMPTATION:
This is my top favorite female fronted band from The Netherlands. I love Sharon Den Adel's voice and the epic orchestras/choirs..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwXt1YWTN6EFLAW:
Chris Volz is my top favorite male vocalist (he also fronted Five Bolt Main). Their first two major label releases were pure gold. I've met them as well.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENn8XkRb-xsTHE PANIC DIVISION:
This band blends an 80's new wave keyboard sound with modern rock. I love them because they are so different than most modern bands.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6r5mfrlSMMLACUNA COIL:
This Italian band was (at one time) a great gothic/doom rock inspired band with both female/male vocals. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7iqEYGAFAEKATATONIA:
This fantastic Swedish doom rock band has very dark, atmospheric (almost Tool-like) sound with all haunting, melodic vocals.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfE3NDozRmMTOOL:
I love this band's dark (but very melodic) style. Maynard James Keenan is another favorite vocalist of mine. He fronts A Perfect Circle and Puscifer as well.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yU5cY5i0a_ILUNATICA:
This is another female fronted symphonic metal band that I love. Great drummer and guitarist.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4w10sig-FN4BREAKING BENJAMIN:
A rather well known mainstream hard rock band.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7ra7xht9ecEVANESCENCE:
Another very well known female fronted band fronted by Amy Lee.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCI99p02ayURED:
This is my top favorite Christian rock band. They have a rather mainstream sound. This partical song reminds me of Linkin Park.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNeb1ZJ6cus
