    Music-Map and Last.fm are good sites.

    Encyclopaedia Metallum if you're looking for metal.
    Pandora was also kinda good back when it didn't suck.
    And you'll be surprised what Wikipedia can give you sometimes. I found my favourite band there.

    But yeah, as TheGuru said: Music-Map and Last.FM are probably the best sites.

    Can you actually listen on EM though?

    I've found blocks of like 20 post-thrash bands with at least one full length (I don't bother with EPs or demos because I don't want to litter my collection with a bunch of folders with 4 tracks in them) that have not a single song on YouTube, and it drives me crazy.

    EM isn't the best for finding new bands but I usually use it to decide which albums to get first from bands with big discographies.

    I find a lot of new music through this website.
    You can't obtain music through it, but I find a lot of stuff to check out.

    Pitchfork.com is a pretty good review site, I browse the Best New Music section from time to time.
