Have you heard Flyleaf yet? Their debut is GREAT. The 4 songs on the EP were much better, because they toned down the lead singers (female) screaming for the actual album.
I like alot of those bands, not all. I really like Breaking Benjamin. Some would say they are too "pop", but I really like both albums so far.
A lot of the bands I listed were on Tooth and Nail or Solid State Records. You don't have to be a "christian band" to be on those labels, but there are quite a few. I was waiting on somebody to bring up Flyleaf. Definately different than what most people are used to. I like to listen to them every now and then, but I think that they will eventually lean too much on the fact that their lead singer is a woman that can scream, or turn away from the screaming to sell more CDs. Not saying they aren't or can't be good enough to sell a lot of CDs in the future, we'll see what happens.
I was looking over what I originally posted, and I forgot two of the CDs that are coming out this spring/summer that I am the most excited about. Taking Back Sunday relases their new CD Louder Now later this month, and Thursday realeases their new CD in May. Just some thoughts.
Also, if there are any Blink 182 fans out there, you might want to check out the band that Tom DeLonge started called Angels & Airwaves. They release a CD later this year, and their new song "The Adventure" is creating a lot of buzz. Not my cup of tea, but somebody might like it. Of course being a drummer, I always liked watching Travis Barker. Crazy stuff.
I saw somebody else likes In Flames, what do you think of "Come Clarity?" I like the changes from electronics just to mix things up. Don't get me wrong, I loved the older stuff, but I like to see bands try something different from time to time.
