    eh, most rock music has melodies about as simple as the pop examples, i’d say melody has been in the old folks home for about half a century now. at least, i certainly don’t put on sabbath records to hear melodies.

    Love this kind of stuff, great thread idea OP



    Ufomammut, Italian band that makes heavy use of repetition, riffs to create mantra like effects, like in this video the intro riff lasts about two and a half minutes, buildup doesnt release until about a minute later. Meandering and whispering synths dance around the corners of the music, always letting the riff lead the way

    Post punkers also flirt with it quite a bit

    Blew my mind when I first heard this 20 years ago. My favorite ‘indie’ band since

    Amen. And commitment to repeatable excellence might be why Rob Dickinson makes such epic Porsche restomods (he owns Singer). Still blows me away that's Bruce's cousin.
    Punisher of a track there. Maybe I've got this idea wrong, but here's another that comes to mind:

    I wasn’t impressed with too much of these guys’ catalog when I checked them out but this one was a nice surprise when hearing it on the radio last year

    for sure! they have a lot of it. Speedway and Near DT, MI are really killer.
