Biffy are one of my favourite bands. A threepiece metal/screamo/punk/stadium rock/whatever the hell they feel like playing band from Kilmarnock, Scotland, they've become incredibly popular on this side of the Atlantic in the last couple of years. They started out sounding like Scotland's answer to Nirvana, went through a mental experimental phase, and ended up sounding like Scotland's answer to the Foo Fighters, except even more incredibly epic. Those of you who follow the British X Factor might know them since they wrote the winning song, Many Of Horror/When We Collide (a fact no one in the band is proud of).
They've got 5 studio albums, and a double album coming out shortly after Uno! The first single, Stingin' Belle, is here for you to sample.
I'd recommend them to anyone, they have such an incredibly varied style. No matter what you're into, you'll find a song of theirs that you'll fall in love with. My entire family have, as varied in musical tastes as we are.
P.S. Ladies, the consensus is that the frontman, Simon Neil, is one of the hottest guys in rock at the moment. I'll leave you to decide
A NOTE TO ANYONE LOOKING TO GET INTO BIFFY
Listen to this album first
And then these, for their earlier stuff.
