Bandcamping is dangerous, I've learned. Spent probably $150 on there in the past few weeks.

No one could blame you for that.

The raddest part about Metal on Bandcamp is that soooooo much of it is post/black/sludge, which is pretty much my favorite TYPES of metal. And there have been some AMAZING finds.

 

http://bandcamp.com/discover?g=metal&s=rec&r=most

 

Just bookmark that and check it out. Some amazing highlights have been Líam, Dying Sun, Sioum, Eibon, ██████ (that's their name), LoveSexMachine, Plebeian Grandstand, Rorcal, Suma, Whelm, and Wound Upon Wound. 

 

Turn it up:

It really is a place of endless wonder. Even more so than Last.fm most of the time (at least for me).

My arsenal of discovery goes in basically this order:

 

  1. See if anything new popped up on Spotify's "Discover" page
  2. Last.fm Recommendations
  3. Spotify "similar artists"
  4. Last.fm "similar artists"
  5. Sputnik new reviews
  6. RateYourMusic top lists for anything I haven't tried yet
  7. Bandcamping

 

http://metalbandcamp.com/ is also a fantastic resources. They're not comprehensive, I mean they do what they can but there's not everything there, but there's also a bunch in the archives that I would have missed otherwise. http://abest.bandcamp.com/ is AMAZING.

 

I often wonder if we have older albums we haven't given a new chance to because our memories of them being good or bad are largely thanks to substandard headphones. I was definitely shocked by a couple I thought were noisy and ill produced where it turned out they just REALLY needed top-notch speakers.

Seems like a lot of people are listening to Spotify. I've had a Rhapsody account for about a year and think it might be time to take a look elsewhere. Thinking of MOG or Spotify. I'd be interested in good/bad comments about said services???

MOG is dead. They got bought by Beats who, having been bought by Apple, aren't doing any active development on their streaming services. Stay away.

 

Your best bets are Rdio, Google, and Spotify. Rdio's apps work the best, Google has the ability to store your own stuff on the cloud, and Spotify's in-service apps for discovery and sharing are top-notch. You can't go wrong with any of them.

Spotify is top notch. I am a member, no complaints.
