No prob. Another one is Budgie, maybe you know them already,

a lot less obscure, but kind of in the mold. I only heard them relatively recently.


Budgie is best known as a hard rock[2] and heavy metal[1][2][22] band which incorporated elements of progressive rock[22] and humor into their musical style.[22] Beginning with 1975's Bandolier, Budgie also began to incorporate funk into their music.[22]

Budgie's music was described in the All-Music Guide as a cross between Rush and Black Sabbath.[2] Burke Shelley's vocals have been compared to Geddy Lee due to his similar approach of high-pitched banshee wails (coincidentally, Shelley and Lee are also the bass players in their respective power-trio bands).[2] Although Budgie remained quite obscure during their early career, many future stars of hard rock/metal have cited them as an important influence and covered their songs, including Iron Maiden,[23] Metallica,[24] Megadeth,[25] Van Halen,[26] Melvins,[27] Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains,[28] and Soundgarden.[29]
