They're not necessarily 'new' bands at all, but I hadn't really dug into their music, yet. (One could say that they're new to me, at least! Haha!)
So, I'm excited about checking these bands out; because I've wanted to do it for a while. And I've heard many good things, too.
Soundgarden is a great example of what I'm talking about. I actually own a fair bit of their music, already. But, for whatever reason, I put it aside. And then, I got into something else… and a fair bit time went by.
But I felt like pulling out some Soundgarden music, again. And it's awesome!
Black Sabbath is another band that I really like. And I've been listening to them again, lately. I've listened to Sabbath, since my early teens. During the times when they were fronted by both Ozzy, and the late Ronnie James Dio. So it's cool for me to get back into them, again! I have quite a few of their albums. Especially the Ozzy-era stuff. So from around 1968, until the late 70s.
I was often listening to an Aussie band, called The Angels, as well. Which made the recent passing of their frontman, Bernard 'Doc' Neeson, all the more sad for me. R.I.P, Doc! The Angels were a great, hard-nosed, rock band.
