    Arcade Fire
    The New Pornographers
    Pavement
    Broken Social Scene.

    I listen to music a lot, and these are just some of the most recent great bands in indie rock. There are dozens of other bands I really like a lot.

    Wow, another Blind Guardian fan! I thought there were only about five of us...but maybe that's just in the U.S.

    I was a big fan of No Use For a Name's Daily Grind album because "Until it's gone" was the first song on the snowboard video "Upping the Ante" probably one of my favorites all time.

    I only like a couple of songs from Daily Grind. My favorite songs are from Making Friends and More Betterness. The last couple albums were ok, too... also, they're coming to Brazil. Yay.

    Your selection was pretty good too, I'm a big fan of Less than Jake. :p

    I've seen Less than Jake a few times and they are always a fantastic show. I saw No Use for Name once quite a few years back at the Warped Tour, IIRC they were a good show as well.

    That's good to hear. Maybe they'll come on tour here more. I went to a show once, and the house was packed, but it was a small house, and the show was the only one in the entire Northeast...

    There was something very cool about a house full of heavy metal fans swaying and singing along with Celtic-sounding acoustic ballads...

    What type of music does Blind Gaurdian play? Is it similar to Rhapsody (Symphonic power metal) ?

    Blind Guardian is powermetal, and in my opinion they walk all over Rhapsody of Fire. I'm also a big fan of Demons & Wizards, but I kind of lump that in with Blind Guardian because it's a side project by BG front-man Hansi Kursch and Jon Schaffer of Iced Earth. If you're into metal at all you owe it to yourself to check out Blind Guardian.

    Every one of their albums is fantastic, but I'd recommend either Imaginations From The Other Side or Nightfall In Middle Earth to start.
