Added DiffLines:

* At the [[ExecutiveMeddling suggestion of their manager]], Music/TheB52s debuted a new, more electronic-based sound with the EP ''Mesopotamia'' and subsequent album ''[[ExcitedShowTitle Whammy!]]'' The departure from the low-fi punk/garage sound of their first two albums led to somewhat of a BrokenBase.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/SpawnOfPossession still maintains being a TechnicalDeathMetal band, but their 2012 album ''Incurso'' puts more of a focus on creating a horror atmosphere than earlier releases.

** ''Miley Cyrus And Her Dead Petz'', largely a collaboration with TheFlamingLips, drops much of the hip-hop flavor of ''Bangerz'' for a PsychedelicRock influenced sound for most of the tracks.

* Music/DefLeppard went with a more organic sound with darker lyrical content in 1996 with the ''Slang'' album. Their rationale at the time was that, with HairMetal being DeaderThanDisco, they may as well make the most "Un-DefLeppard" album they could (Though one member said that, in hindsight, they probably included some of those ideas a little too eagerly, without doing proper quality control beforehand), because they were going to get slammed no matter what they did. Reaction was mixed, the album wasn't very successful in the USA, and the band returned to their trademark sound with 1999s ''Euphoria''.

** The eventual followup in 1997, ''Generation Swine'', brought Vince Neil back but it was another attempt to keep with contemporary trends, adding elements of AlternativeMetal and IndustrialMetal to their sound and making use of drum machines and synthesizers. They'd finally return to straightforward glam metal with ''New Tattoo'' in 2000, and subsequent albums tended not to stray so far from their usual style.

* Music/SmashingPumpkins' first two albums, ''Gish'' and ''Siamese Dream'' are examples of early-90s alternative rock. Their third album, ''Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness'', was a massive double album with music ranging from mellow acoustic ballads to blistering heavy metal. Their next album, ''Adore'' was mainly electronica due to drummer Jimmy Chamberlain being fired and the band deciding to use a drum machine (Billy Corgan [[http://www.smashingpumpkinsnexus.com/#!ADORE-UPDATE-FROM-BILLY-CORGAN-AND-INFO-ON-HOW-TO-PRE-ORDER-AUTOGRAPHED-COPIES-AT-MADAMEZUZUSCOM-/c7ba/59DF2946-559F-4200-B532-C5BCB6F962C8 even said it was a]] PunBasedTitle, as the album was [[StealthPun "A Door"]] towards a new sound). Chamberlain returned a few years later and recorded the ''MACHINA'' albums [[note]]''MACHINA: Machines of God'' had a proper release while an album of outtakes, ''MACHINA II: Friends and Enemies of Modern Music'' was one of the first examples of an album being exclusively released on the Internet[[/note]], which expanded the electronic experimentation of ''Adore'' and ventured into [[NineInchNails NIN-esque]] industrial metal. The band broke up afterward, and when Billy Corgan formed the second Smashing Pumpkins lineup, they too experimented with different genres of music.
