Welcome to Gaia! ::

The New Suggestions Sticky!


Since there are an insane amount of suggestions threads posted in the International Music Forum, a Suggestions Sticky was created! This thread is here to help you find new bands from various countries, categorized by country and genre! The new Suggestions Sticky should help you all find new bands a lot faster and easier than the old one (:

Please feel free to post your suggestions here, but also follow some simple guidelines. When posting a suggestion, the following information is very useful to other Gaian's:
Quote:

1. Artist/Group Name
2. Music Genre [Visual Kei, Oshare Kei, etc. do not count as GENRES!]:
This is a must. Your suggestion will not be added to the list if you do not give a genre with it!
3. Summary of the band: Names of the band members, positions, and any other useful information should go here. Please give us some kind of summary, either your own or from a website!
4. Recommended Songs: The name of the band and the genre will go on the front page, but for those who want a little more, please include the name of a song, or even a link to one on youtube, that you find to be your favorite or the band's best work.


-Please follow Gaia's ToS when posting in any of the forums.

-Please do not spam this thread. You are free to post suggestions and ask for requests, but please do no bump or spam the thread.

-Do NOT offer downloads! Offering illegal downloads of any sort is against Gaia's ToS, and it is reportable.

-Last but not least, please do not just list bands that you like, or bands that are your favorite [there is a sticky in the Music Forum for that.] People want information on them before they look them up! Follow the guidelines, and make it easier for everyone to find new music here!

If you have any suggestions on how to improve this thread, or have anything you would like to be added [such as a new genre, a new country, etc.], please PM me!
Here are the suggestions posted thus far [taken from the old suggestions sticky, as well as the new one]. They are categorized by the country they come from, and the genre that was given. Bands may be under multiple genres!

Any band that is a URL, is linked to the page where it was suggested. If you CTRL+F, and search for the bands name [or simply scroll through the page], you'll find the post with suggested songs for the band!:
