Next Big Thing?

Do you all remember when "Cumbersome" by Seven Mary Three was the next big thing? I was reminded of the song while listening to traditional, commercial radio last night. Seven Mary Three is a good band and they are still going strong. Still, I'm not sure they ever eclipsed the madness of "Cumbersome." I remember hearing that song nonstop while I was in high school -- WEBN, a Cincinnati rock station, played that track incessantly. Hearing "Cumbersome" last night brought back some good memories... and made me wonder about the next big thing in rock. What band is considered the next big thing? The most famous modern metal band around these days is Avenged Sevenfold - and they've been at it for a long time now. Does the Glam world even have a "next big thing?" What do you think?

i love a lot of new stuff. id say avenged sevenfold is one of the better bands, but i dont know, the rock scene is alive but dead at the same time. only a few people care about it. and thats a huge shame.

trivia time.

who sings and in what song: "she said, 'the next big thing ain't nothing much.' but hey, I said, "the next big thing is me."

go back to the basics in order to bring glam forward.

Enter The Darkness, Buckcherry, Crash Diet, The Treatment, Reckless Love, Foxy Shazam, Crazy Lixx, Beautiful Beast, Miss Crazy, Diemonds, H.e.a.t., De La Cruz, Station, Black Veil Brides, Wild Street, Casablanca, Baby Jane, Santa Cruz, Sister, Dynazty, and others too numerous to mention (Well, okay, not that numerous), there's no shortage of New Glam Metal. It's just gotta get more exposure.

Love or loathe Avenged Sevenfold, it's terrific to see a heavy band at the top of the charts, as that usually only means good things for the genre, and it will help pull up some of those bands that Metalboy mentioned.

There actually seem to be a lot of new rock bands that are all doing pretty well. Aside from A7X you've got Black Veil Bridges, Asking Alexandria, Five Finger Death Punch, All that Remains, Sick Puppies, Halestorm, Volbeat, etc. Not much in the way of glam in there, but heavy music does seem to be enjoying a bit of a resurgence.

Saw this really interesting band on the Retro Stage at Rocklahoma this year named Wicked.They've got the look and songs definitely the whole package. Im hoping to see more of them in the future

I'll check 'em out, Kev.

And though Halestorm may not be Glam, Lizzy definitely has an affection for it and is influenced by it as shown by her duet with Tom Keifer live on an earlier post here as well as the fact she's had Steve Whiteman from KIX as her vocal coach for years.
