i disagree with a previous post saying most OPM bands sounds like CREED
perhaps i am biased being a pinoy but there are old and new bands that have reinvigorated the Pilipino music industry and roused interest in bands as opposed to vocalists such as Sarah Geronimo and Gary V.
...and don't even get me started on Jasmine Trias who, when asked on American Idol what her nationality is, mentioned every other Asian country but the Philippines! And where is she now?
anyway, post '90s bands like Eraserheads, Pupil, Rivermaya, Sandwich, Orange & Lemons, Yano (and his latest reincarnation-dongabay), Join The Club, M.Y.M.P. and True Faith are but a few examples of great bands that i love and admire...
Revival/Tribute projects have recently gained popularity after the success of Kami nAPO Muna but this is not a case of Pilipino songwriters running out of fresh ideas. It is rather a case of cashing-in on the nostalgia trip that everyone, especially the older crowd can appreciate from time to time.
I offer two websites where you can download, discover and hopefully appreciate such bands and solo OPM artists:
-make sure to check out the Archives section too
-you will need to register but it's free, and worth it
