Close her down I win!
Would djent be a genre if nobody had jumped on the bandwagon? That's how genres get started - someone comes up with a sound, it gets trendy, some asshole journalist gIves it a retarded name, and boom! New genre. Same thing with Killswitch. They defined metalcore, so they fit OP's criterion. I'm by no means a Killswitch fan, nor do I think their sound is original in and of itself. But OP asked for bands that started genres, so by that measure they fit Into this thread.
Spastic Ink & Blotted Science.
Opeth, Agalloch, Eluveitie, Dream Theater.
Django Reinhardt. Literally mastered or invented all the techniques we use today while being an illiterate, handicapped Roma person in the 30s.
I know they started as a copycat band, but they've definitely got a sound all their own! That and they've got some songs that are ridiculous. Not as much so as Dir en grey, but you know what I mean haha.
would anyone say that once Radiohead started their process of fusing electro-pop with their flavor of rock, that they were doing something fresh and unique?
i started off with OK Computer and on, and once i went back and listened to their first albums it was like night and day. (although not in a wholly BAD way...)
For recent bands, my vote goes to Muse quickly followed by foster the people....
Muse mentioned right after Radiohead, i chuckled a little inside...
Anacrusis is sooooooooo fucking under recognized.
Well, Gazette may not be the most original band in the world but that still doesn't stop them making good music.
I cried a little inside.
what about MC5?
Uhm, no. It got big with them, that is correct, because they delivered a hit single, and are more or less therefor responsible for the boom. As much credit as they deserve for this, but it was nothing NEW or ORIGINAL they were doing.
Never said they were original soundIng. Try reading the whole post before you go into IMN ragemode. What I said was that they came to define a genre, which is precisely what OP was looking for. This has nothing to do with "originality" in the dictionary sense, but OP asked for bands that started new genres, which, as I've stated several times before, does not mean that the band in question has an original sound. Take Sleep for example if Killswitch makes you too butthurt. They're hardly original sounding, but without them, stoner metal wouldn't exist. So by OP's criterion, they fit this thread despite having ah sound thats not original by any means.
