A super group composed of old timers but nonetheless a breath of fresh air in the music scene! OPM at its finest. Not riding the pop bandwagon of this day and age, the band continues to make quality music. Not your usual average guitar and drum-wielding quartet.
Having ely Buendia as the frontman of this band, no wonder how can they make new music with new band members and of course new styles.
One of the best band that I know! And all of their songs in In Lab! Album are originals, no remakes! All of their songs are great and beautiful! Their debut song Emily makes us think that this band has a very nice future and indeed all of their songs are VERY INSPIRING! They'll never let down their fans with new songs like Kapitan. The song Kapitan also have a good lesson. To be a good person and help others whoever you are makes us become heroes! I highly recommend this band it's because they have the best music, best vibes and best influence to us. The band are approachable they are so very very kind and thoughtful! And if you are lucky the band will approach you as well! Sweet! Keep up the good work Paraluman!
I love the voice of their vocalist "Madeline" and the way the band use to play their songs. Try to listen to their music just once, and you'll get hooked.
Paraluman is a relatively new band of Alternative, Rock and Pop in the country's ever-busy music scene. Considered as one of the youngest band to ever hit Metro Manila, the band offers music that is daring and edgy yet versatile enough to shift from one genre to another. Sounds like Moonpools and Caterpillars, Plumb, Michelle Branch, D' Sound and Paramore but did not forget to incorporate their own style to the songs thus making it more interesting to the listening public.
Paraluman is composed of Madeline, Arjay, VR, Jay and Jimbo. Madeline Ramboyong with her fine crooning style make her worthy to front the band and handles the vocalist's duties. Arjay Romero plays the lead guitars while VJ Romero on bass. Jay Macalincag deals with the rhythm and Jimbo Cuenco complete the sounds with his drumming tactics. Though members are technically new in the field, some of them are experienced musicians from other bands and are very eager to learn more and grab every opportunities of paving them to be one of the mainstream artists.

They may not be the best but their song is inspiring and I know that you would agree to that and even if their not your top 10 today but they would be the best someday
even so they are not in the list well its just a list
Eevee may not be as prestige as the Eraserheads and Rivermaya, but because of them, young Filipino musicians are inspired to share their music because of their sincerity in writing songs. They make their message in their songs accessible and easily to diverge. They were the ones who put Davao on the music scene. Di man kagwapuhan ang vocalist, maangas at mabagsik naman. Haha! It only shows that its not the looks but the talent that spawned their popularity
They are simply a nice band. I was a classmate of a drummer namely craig, he is a good guy.
Keep up making nice songs...
more power to the band...
Oki pud kaayo ni.. Ayoz pampa utog
Awesome band with such great music! Their own compositions are really good and creative when it comes to the lyrics. All band members are professional musicians. They are actually like more than a band. They are like a 'family' because I've seen them being there for each other. When they play on stage, you can see the passion in each and every member of this band. You see them enjoy and not only play music just for the sake of performing.
I'VE JUST GOTTEN A COPY OF THE MEG MAG. AUGUST ISSUE AND I WAS SO HAPPY TO FIND MY FAVE BAND IN IT... NOT SO FAST BAND... THEY'RE ONE OF THE 7 TOP STAR ACTS TO WATCH... BEAT THAT... WELL, I'M HERE WRITING THIS NOTE JUST TO SHOW HOW HAPPY I AM, AND THANKS TO MEG PEOPLE... THEY KNOW WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT... I SALUTE MY HAT TO YOU, GUYS...
I just hope that someday soon this band NOT SO FAST... Will make it to the top and... I hope I will listen and watch more of them. They are simply awesome, and their passion for their music simply oozes, you know like the cup runneth over... It would be a pity if their music and performance would not touch more people. I just love watching and listening to them. Hey guys! Let's have more of your kind of music, wholesome, meaningful music! I'm sure your fans like me would love that!
Great band, good music, pure OPM songs. Please support this band. :)
I just love their kind of music, because their songs are very soulful and it really has a good melody, well written and it is really straight to the heart of the one listening to it. My personal Favorites are "FOREVER MORE" and "UNTIL THEN"
Every song of this band inspires all lovers and broken hearted partners, why not choose them as one of the best, they deserve to be on top ten list
Undoubtedly one of the best bands ever. And I'm quite sure you've paid a lot of attention whenever you hear the lyrics to their song which hits directly on target. As in "sapul" talaga. Talented bunch indeed.
Mean reggae band. Should be in the Top 10! Really like their energetic and chilled music. Really looking forward to their new songs. All the best BMR!
This band is one of the only few Pinoy bands who can pass the international standards and better than most of the bands above this list. Their sound is very unique and original. No wonder they can represent our country in the annual SXSW in Austin, TX.
Best Post-punk/New wave revival from the Philippines. If they make it, they might beat the Eraserheads from the 'best' spot.
I'm in love to this band for the first time I've watched them performed...
And I'm looking to watch and hear more of their new songs...
I like their rendition of Sampaguita song Laguna.
And their original songs are not shallow like most of the modern bands.
I'm still waiting for their album.
Their mix is just great.. I love their music and I think that they a great future ahead of them.
Knowing their roots made the way they present their songs now extra special..
Galing nila mag cover ng mga 80's and 90's songs. I saw them in route196 and I think that they deserve a break.More comments about ChildStar
They are young and talented! The best alternative band I ever heard! Either slow or upbeat melodies they are really great! Relating with their music while they play is remarkable! Mind you... You will stand up on your feet while they play!
Soundvent was the greatest of all! They become superb after a year of playing with some great bands! Add them at facebook. Cosoundvent to know more about them of how they play and how they interact vwith their audiences god bless us all and keep our opm music scene alive
As a finalist of Nescafe Soundskool 2010, Soundvent was able to enter the mainstream with their singles Tayo and Di Na Lang. Their songs are mostly in Filipino, thus one can easily understand and relate to them. Their music ranges from slow to upbeat melodies that talk about love as well.More comments about Soundvent
True Faith is legit for its walls in this industry, probably one of the longest standing bands in the country...
The Bloomfields are EPIC! They're definitely one of the most underrated bands out there. Everyon has to at least try to see them perform live.
A band that were to conquer the stage in muziklaban. They can bring the house down and make you go home thinking why the hell is this band good.
Coolest band ever! Must keep an eye and an ear on this band. Also the vocalist was so cool. He must continue creating good songs. L o L.
This musician is a monster! He can play almost all the instruments... And this monster is just waiting for a recording company to bring him out of his cage to this crappy music industry. He will rule the OPM scene and change all KPOP and POP fans into hard rocking head banging like you never seen them before!
Dranreb Sucks is a solo project formed by a fat-ass guy who doesn't have a life. He keeps on creating crappy songs for your ears to bleed. He is definitely the worst musician in this country. - dranreb
Kissbone is an independent band from the underground rock scene of Cainta, Philippines. The band consists of 4 non-profitable and hopeful musicians. They're not rockstars but they think that they can rock your world.
Hope this one counts! I really like this band!
One of the best indie rock band! :)More comments about Kissbone
Aside from being the fact that they are as good as juan dela cruz band(the father of rock music pinoy style in the phils. ) they had a unique concept of kundiman rock fusion that distinctively apart from other rock legend at that time. One of the most inspiring band of all time. Maria cafra is a 70s band fronted by Resty Fabunan, doing the vocals and lead guitars. He is one of the best guitarist of the 70s and usually burns his guitar after his set. The name of their original band was Psyclone band. They changed their name to Maria Cafra in support of the Pinoy Rock movement in early 70s. Their manager was Double A, the then station manager of DZRJ AM.
Their early hit songs were Buhay Gapo, Kapalaran and Tayo'y Mag rak en Roll.
