Looking for new music to get into? Check out these 10 Up-And-Coming Bands You Need to Hear in 2016.

Not every band can score a hit on the radio, so we wanted to shine a spotlight on some new rock and metal bands that are making waves in their respective genres. We made sure to keep this list incredibly diverse so you’ll hopefully find at least one act that appeals to you!

Bands like Purson are leading the occult rock throwback, putting out masterful albums like their 2016 sophomore release, Desire’s Magic Theatre. The record gets better and more expansive with each listen, so we included a portion of “Electric Landlady” in this Loud List. Also, if you’re into etherial rock and metal, you’ll want to check out With Our Arms to the Sun. You’ll hear “Great Black Divide” in our compilation from the band’s A Far Away Wonder album, and be sure to look out for WOATTS’s new album, Orenda, coming later this year.

If you’re looking for brutality, we’ve got it. One of this year’s most exciting metal bands is German act Mantar, which released the excellent Ode to the Flame this year. You’ll also hear some monstrous technical death metal in the form of Chthe’ilist and some groove-oriented jams from Rising.
