Best Pinoy Bands of 2012
android18This is my opinion based on what I observed as a music lover/listener.
These are the indie and signed bands which we do not usually see in the commercial music scene and/or in major events. Some of them have been around for more than a decade but still continue to dish out quality and unique music. Sadly more foreigners around the world take interest of them than Filipino listeners (as i have seen on the net). I personally chose this set of bands because of their passion and dedication to grow and be masters of their craft given that they do not receive such recognition they deserve as true Pinoy Bands.

The Top Ten
Good as musicians... Even better as friends.
Fuseboxx brings their music to life in an unexplainable manner. Stagnant and stale are two words that are not present on this album. It is either you are emotionally moved by the words in the song you can relate to; or you just can't help but bang your head, stomp your feet or tap your hands while listening to them. It is like watching a movie and each song represents different scenes from a story. Their music alone speaks... Reaching the inner depths of your intangible mind that even in the absence of words, you understand. This is probably why the non-Filipino speakers, who listened to their music, appreciate even the Tagalog songs. They don't have to know the meaning of the words, they just feel it. And that is what I like most about their music.
Without a doubt, think of Rush, Queensryche and Dream Theater that's the level they are at. Well structured songs that sync with Abby's demi god like voice and talk about singing while playing the chapman stick, add to that Lez' odd metered beats and Mico and Eric, well, no synth-guitar duo I know that can keep up with their sync soloing. The! N take this facts into paper and then its absolutely a no brainer

My favourite band! Love listening to them! They just give off this chill relaxing feeling! They have great melody and lyrics! Plus they all look cute!

The songs from their album Filipinas 1800 were very well written, combining a set of tasteful rock ballads and progressive metal instrumentals into one concept story remembering the country's history. Their live and studio performances always show the group's tightness, harmonious musical chemistry and passion not only for prog metal genre, but for OPM.
Giniling Festival... PURE AWESOMENESS!
Bombee and Jeb's guitar riffs. Jeje and Bombee's vocalization. Plus the band's quirky and fun lyrics. Plus the fact that Bogart the Explorer is the band's drummer. Intense Drumming juggles! Come on!
