I'm looking for darker alternative rock like manic street preacher's the holy bible.
>>
>>61957699
Okay it doesn't have to be like manic street preachers. I just want something that doesn't sound like the strokes, the national, interpol, wilco. That totally lifeless garbage that doesn't belong on this earth.
>>
>>61957699
listen to Journal For Plague Lovers by Manic Street Preachers

it's a bit lighter music-wise, and the lyrics are often filled with irony rather than genuine disgust/anger, but it should appeal to you

Muse.

Really! Imagine if MSP took a gonzo approach to incorporating Queen and prog-rock into their music, and stuck with it for almost 20 years. Most people on /mu/ find it impossible to take them seriously, but at the very least I promise you they are dark and aggressively unlike The Strokes, The National, Wilco, etc.

"Good" was not one of your listed criteria. If I were to add that to the list, I would say try this album--a lot of people agree it's their best. It's an early one, from when they were still relatively bullshit-free.

There's nothing quite like The Holy Bible OP. But check out these:

In Utero (obvious choice, but it was a big influence in THB)
Brand New - Daisy (has an aggressive, raw sound, sort of like In Utero)
The Downward Spiral (you probably heard this already)
Prick - s/t (industrial rock in the vein of TDS)
Klimt 1918 - Undressed Memento (gothic alternative rock, proto-blackgaze, underrated stuff but not as aggressive as THB)
Maganize - Real Life (huge influence on James Dean Bradfield, kinda sounds like THB sometimes except more funny)
Simple Minds - Empires And Dance (another influence on James Bradfield, it has a cold sound but it's more synthpop)
Women - Public Strain (dissonant noisish rock, you probably heard this already)

Also, check out Life Becoming a Landslide EP, the release that preceded THB. One of the tracks, Comfort Comes, sounds exactly like a Holy Bible track. Also, during the recording of that album, they heard a lot of Wire, Cranes and Joy Division, so try out those if you haven't.

Thank you for the interesting suggestions, I haven't heard these ones before.

>>61957699
What are some other rock albums made by mentally damaged people?
>>
>>61961793
I only listened to their debut, are the other albums as good?
>>
>>61957699
consideri alt rock is just commercialized post hardcore / college rock you should just listen to those classics
>>
>>61962802
>college rock
please explain to me what this is supposed to mean.
>>
>>61962746
All of their albums are great and worth at least one listen. Really consistent band.
>>
>>61962802
>alt rock is just commercialized post hardcore / college rock
That's the dumbest thing I read in a while
>>
>>61962746
In my opinion, yeah. They sound a bit different from their debut, but I still like them.
>>
>>61962848
why
>>
>>61962746
Controversial opinion here, but I think their first album is their weakest (including the most recent one, which is pretty good if you know which tracks to skip). Their sound changed a lot on the subsequent releases.
