Title: The Music Thread
Post by: EmeraldWarrior420 on January 10, 2014, 05:13:16 PM
I've had a few music related stuff I've wanted to post on here, but there was no music thread I knew of, so I passed on it. Decided it's about time to start one.

Who's heard the new Five Finger Death Punch single, "Battle Born"? I heard it on the radio today, and the opening made me immeadiatly think of Ozzy Osbourne's "Killer of Giants" (one of his most underrated songs). Does anyone else hear the resemblance (at least in the guitar-work)?

Since we're on the subject, what kind of music does everyone listen to? What are some bands/singers you like?

I'm a big metal-head. I'm into a lot of different metal. I don't like the hip-hop/rap-fused-with-metal sound, and I'm not into straight Death Metal. But most of the rest of it I like.

I'm also into classic rock and hard rock (depending on who it is, when it comes to hard rock. You'd never catch me listening to Blood on the Dance Floor, or anything like that).

A list of many bands I enjoy:
⦁   3 Inches of Blood
⦁   AC/DC
⦁   A.F.I.
⦁   Alice Cooper
⦁   Alice In Chains
⦁   All That Remains

As I said in another post, music is dead to me.

No matter the style, to my ear it's just mostly retread sound now. Sure, every now and then you get a band that shows some originality (Clutch from a few years back) but for the majority of the new stuff ... eh ... I just tune my Pandora Radio to one of my three classic rock stations and just ride the nostalgia wave.

Of course as I have been retired from actively being a part of music for about 8 years now, I am sure there is a possiblity that a few good bands have come around. But ... eh ... I'm happy listening to the old stuff now.

As for what I use to enjoy ... everything from metal to country to folk to dance to etc, etc. I could literally go from Godsmack to Cindy Lauper to Neil Young to Conway Twitty to Ice Cube to Adam Ant to, well, again, etc, etc.

I loved it all ...with only two exceptions. Opera (Just can't enjoy it) and Death Metal/Doom Metal/Deathgrind/Growl Metal/whatever (Just ridiculous sounding noise is all that is, or as I prefer to call it; shit)

i am a huge metal fan and particularly the metal/hard rock from the 80s.  some of my favorite bands are KISS, rush, iron Maiden, metallica, Foo Fighters and Ratt.  I got some gift cards for Amazon and ITunes for Christmas and I spent it all on music.  here is a list of what I got:


albums:
Lillian Axe- the days before tomorrow
Adler- back from the dead
stryper-to hell with the devil, in God we trust, no more hell to pay
megadeth- super collider
sgt. roxx- weapons of miss destruction
stone sour- come whatever may

songs:
loudness- let it go
david lee roth- just like paradise, just a gigolo, going crazy and yankee rose
lou gramm- midnight blue
Europe- rock the night, Cherokee, superstitious
fates warning-through different eyes
quiet riot- party all night, twilight hotel
saxon- strong arm of the law, rock n roll gypsy, ride like the wind, just let me rock, midnight rider

the two bands I am digging on the most right now are stone sour and the winery dogs (mike portnoy is a genius and can do no wrong in my eyes.)

OooOOo...Wish I could have warned you away from 'Super Collider', JC, I thought that entire album was just awful. Ugh.

That said, LOVE THE THREAD Nate!!

I too, am a metalhead. Lately, I feel like I've been trying to find the next 'metal thing.' Been having fun conversations, as well as reading about how the 'Nu-Metal' scene has died, or officially went RIP about 3-4 years ago. Now, that's certainly not my favorite era whatsoever.

However, it did bring attention back to a heavier metal sound, and it certainly showed that stuff like Creed and Puddle of Mudd where not the litmus test of metal.

That said, I'm looking to see what the new 'scene' is. There are talks of labels like 'Nu-core' and  'metalcore', but I really haven't been into that either.

Sure, I still stick with all my favorites from the 80s and on (Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Pantera, Motorhead, earlier Megadeth), but I find myself really enjoying larger, epical (spelling?) prog metal in Iced Earth, Blind Guardian, Ashes of Ares, Grand Magus, Jorn, Epica, Masterplan, etc).

I LOVE Clutch. 'Earth Rocker' is an amazing hard rock album. Dropkick Murphys have put out another solid album. I love goofy ass rock like Alestorm and Gloryhammer.

I also just got the fully expanded edition of Superman: The Movie(John Williams), and in a morose, sad point, was moved to tears reading the liner notes and playing the full, extended intro song.

So, I definitely have friends like Perry who have 'moved beyond' music-and I could see that happening for me; I don't wish it, but I know how it happens.

^ Melodic Death Metal is what I've really been into the last couple of years, when it comes to new metal, Jimmy T.

It mixes the more complicated guitar-work and drumming, with some melodic choruses and such and the mixture complements each other perfectly. It does the same with a mixture of harsh vocals and clean vocals.

Some bands that come to mind in the genre: As I Lay Dying, All that Remains, Killswitch Engage, Scar Symmetry, Dark Tranquility.

And Jedi, I too love the 80s metal scene. Both the underground (at the time) thrash scene, and the mainstream hair bands. I was just listening to Dee Snider's House of Hair yesterday (love that radio show!).

Post by: jedicow on January 12, 2014, 12:51:58 PM
from what little I have listened of it, jimmy, I like "super collider".  that being said, I have only listened to 2 or 3 songs aaaaaannnnddd I got it off Amazon for $5.  I probably would not have bought it for $10.


Title: Re: The Music Thread
Post by: EmeraldWarrior420 on January 12, 2014, 03:04:34 PM
I didn't like Super Collider, either. And Megadeth is my #1 favorite band, no joke. It sounded a little too mainstream and upbeat like Dave was trying to score some radio singles.


Title: Re: The Music Thread
Post by: Jimmy T on January 12, 2014, 06:46:54 PM
Yeah, Super collider was certainly not worth a lot of money, and it's so radio friendly desperate, it makes me despise it.

That said, yeah, I dig As I lay dying, and All that Remains. Some other cool stuff that seems a bit more like Dio, is Benedictum (female singer, and boy she ROCKS!)

I tried Device by Dave Dramian (of Disturbed) and none of it seems immediately significant to my listening pleasure.

I tried 'Newsted' to see what Jason's solo project would bring; he's honestly just trying out to be metal, and it's metal...but metal by numbers, it kinda feels.

Post by: Perry on January 24, 2014, 06:28:17 AM
So I was looking for an image of the movie FILTH to add to the "...last movie you saw..." thread and I came across Dani Filth. Decided to waste about 2 or 3 minutes making my head explode, so I clicked on a few videos for his CRADEL OF FILTH band.

First one, though still just stupid as hell as far as "music" is concerned (or at least my view of music), was pretty cool looking for a "horror" type film/video and I actually made it through about a minute before my ears decided I enough was enough. They showcased the singer and his evil looking antics, a couple chicks for the boob effect and dark lighting and scary scenery made it look like a horror flick. Kinda cool, just not my musical taste. But the second one ... wow, just ridiculous.

Here we have these dark and brooding disguises, guys looking like they are going to cut you in half and eat you raw, and then seconds later, they show these same guys playing a guitar and I can't stop laughing.
 :D

Look, I was a child of Glam Metal, I get the "look" and how it plays into the stage-show and all, but this "I am evil" look is just like a total lack of visual continuity, when they go from looking like escaped mental patients from a demon asylum to picking up a Fender and strumming some chords.  :D 

I have seen it before, sure, but none has hit me as bad as this one. I mean stuff like GWAR is just stupid looking, but that is even without the guitars so there is no heavy change of visuals. And Slipknot also has that "we are just crazy guys" look to them (still not a fan, but I can get it). But this demonic horror look of soul sucking terror staring straight through me, sending chills down my spine as I await them to pounce and consume my life force, but then they just pick up a guitar ... hahahaha.

Alice Copper made it work because he was the one singing. I think that is what is needed when you get into this dark metal stuff. Just have the singer dress the part. Because it sure as hell throws the "look" out the window when at anytime, the terror in front of me could just as easily start playing "Sweet Child O Mine"
 :D

Post by: EmeraldWarrior420 on January 24, 2014, 04:39:30 PM
Cradle of Filth is one of the most influential bands in the entire black metal scene. I used to be a big fan of them. Most of the things you are complaining about the band for, are things that could pertain to the entire Black Metal genre. I'd just chalk it up to you not being a fan of the Black Metal style.

Her Ghost in the Fog was a fantastic song. Nyphetamine is another one I couldn't get enough of. And their cover of Iron Maiden's "Fear of the Dark" is one of the best covers I've ever heard.

But since I've started going back to church, I can't quite bring myself to enjoy them anymore without feeling a little guilty. They are blatantly Satanic, and Dani Filth is a practicing Satanist himself.

While me not being a fan is absolutely true, it is not just that.  :)

But since I've started going back to church, I can't quite bring myself to enjoy them anymore without feeling a little guilty. They are blatantly Satanic, and Dani Filth is a practicing Satanist himself.

Dani Filth is NOT a Satanist. He practices Arcadic Luciferianism. HUGE difference.
"Arcadians glorify reason, equality and progressive thought, and look down on religious dogma. Objectivity, science and personal exploration or discovery are treasured beyond anything else, with the ultimate goal being a world of peace, acceptance and unity that is neither imposed nor hindered by theism, entirely free of the supernatural."

Although they are not a fan of religious dogma (I can understand), it doesn't sound like you should feel too guilty  ;) I mean spreading the idea of unity and world peace isn't what I would call going against the teachings of Christ. No, no reason for guilt.  8)

Well, other than maybe feeling guilty for listening to crap music.
 :D
 ;)
 :)

EDIT - and I say that while the speakers are on 11, screaming ABBA right now, so I realize you could say the same.
 ;D

You must not have listening to much Cradle of Filth. There's no question about the satanic nature of the lyrics.

That makes him no more a satanist than me a Christian if I sing "Lamb of God" .... hymn number 186 if remember correctly  ;D
(yes, again, I was raised Baptist)  :)

Now I am not saying he is Christian either ...  :D

EDIT - Just to clarify further, I am not saying he doesn't have anti-God sentiments, but Satanist are a different thing all together. More for the "self" than anything. It's like ... saying Satanist and Luciferians are the same is like saying that Protestants and Roman Catholics are the same because the both have Christ (or the belief in him) as their main tenant and share some general ideas. But there are also vast differences as well. Like the Catholics and their Bible that has 8 more books for one.

Tom Arraya of Slayer will still take his mother to church, and he doesn't burst into flames, or get kicked out.

I'd feel bad if I acted on what I heard, but for this metal head, the songs aren't a personal dogma, they are a way of me expressing frustration and anger at a world I can't control in a cathartic way of being loud, fast, and in your face. ;)

That said, I'm just personally not a huge fan of Cradle; the stylings didn't ever catch me much. But, Nate, I'm definitely going to listen to those songs in particular just to try them out.

That said, I just got every NIN song out there, as I am waaay behind, and want to see if this is something that still resonates with me. I haven't heard a full album since 'The Fragile.'

I listen to a little bit of everything.  80s, Rap, Alternative, R&B, Pop, EDM, Rock, Country, and Metal.   Heck, if it gets radio play, there's a good chance I know and listen to it.

Confession:  I'm a big fan of Karaoke bars, and love to sing my heart and lungs out.   :P

It's not about that. I mean, a lot of the more straight-laced church people would probably want to throw me out for liking Def Leppard even and then tell me that comics are the devil's tool. :D

I'm a bit more open-minded than that. I know I'm an adult and I can choose my own beliefs and thoughts without having a band influence me like some love-struck 14-year old girl.

It's just hard for me to enjoy lyrics that are directly demeaning to my beliefs. As a result, I've stopped listening to a few Black Metal bands, where strong anti-Christian lyrics are common. Stuff like Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, God Dethroned, etc. Doesn't mean I don't like metal anymore, I still listen to crapload of metal of all kinds.

I just picked up Disarmonia Mundi, Children of Bodom, Metallica, and Amon Amarth albums recently.

As much as I don't want you feeling guilty about what you listen to, I absolutely understand that from a "faith" standpoint.

Regardless of the singers (writers) actual beliefs, if he is singing praise to things that go against your core faith, I can see were "singing along" or even just "getting into it" could be troublesome.

Post by: jedicow on January 30, 2014, 08:38:17 PM
so I just did something I didn't think I would ever do again. 

I bought tickets to go see motley crue.  I have seen the crue twice in my life.  motley was the very first concert I attended back in 1990 (it may have been '91; you know how memory is with us old fogeys, right , perry? :D) and I saw them once when john corabi was the singer.  I did see vince neil in a small club in myrtle beach back when his first solo album was released and that was pretty cool (front row with high fives from vince himself included ;D).  however, the crue split up for a while after that and then they got together again and I saw a few performances on tv and the 'net and I was just BLOWN AWAY by how incredibly BAAAAD they were.  the worst thing was vinces singing.  he was very much half-assing it and when I saw them play "home sweet home" he left out 65-70% of the lyrics.  I vowed from then on to never see motley live again and not waste my money. 

flash forward to 2 days ago when they announce this is the last tour and they are going to dissolve the band after the tour is over (and yes, I know I could be falling into the "KISS" trap here :D) and I found myself reminiscing to the good old days circa 1986-87 when motley was perhaps my favorite band in the world at the time and I can't miss the chance to see them one last time.  I am hoping that the rust has worn off from those performances I saw from a few years ago and I won't be seeing them until October and by that time the tour will have been rolling for the better part of 4-5 months.  they have to have it down by then, right?

oh yeah...I also bought tickets to see alice in chains in may today.  busy day, I love my wife and she is slightly annoyed/irritated at me  ;D.

Was thinking about hitting that one too. With Alice correct?

you know how memory is with us old fogeys, right , perry? :D)

You know that is gospel!!!  ;D

and I saw them once when john corabi was the singer. 

Ouch. How was he live?

the worst thing was vinces singing.  he was very much half-assing it and when I saw them play "home sweet home" he left out 65-70% of the lyrics. 

Yep. I've seen Crue 4 times (twice for free because the ex-wife use to work at Tracks so we even got back stage passes the first time. Or what I though were back-stage passes. Told everyone I knew that I had BSP to Crue, made everyone jealous of me (remember this is early/mid 80's  ;D) and then, after get all excited about meeting Nicki Sixx after the show, I find it is only a meet and greet prior to the show. You get one photo with the band. "ONE!" and my boy Sixx wasn't even there.
 :( ... damn that was a long interjection) But anyway ... Every time I have seen Vince he is just out of breath, and gasping for air. I can understand on some songs (Like "Shout", which he use to always complain about Nikki writing lyric rhythm too fast), but dude has just been out of shape since '83
 ;D

oh yeah...I also bought tickets to see alice in chains in may today.  busy day, I love my wife and she is slightly annoyed/irritated at me  ;D. 

Didn't even know Cantrell had re-grouped this. Without ... everyone else?

Well speaking of concerts ... the wife's birthday is coming up so I was going to buy a couple Elton John tickets so we can have a nice night out (something we have not had in a few months) to celebrate her ... getting older
 ;D

Well, that's not happening. Look, I get that guy can sell some tickets, but I am not paying over $500 for two seats. Now yes, they are in a good section, but they are not in the section closest to the stage and even then I would have to think about buying them.

Of course, I could buy the cheaper reserved section seating for $170 for EACH TICKET, which would bring my total to a paltry $340, but those seats are so far back you would have to use the huge monitors they have to see the show. Not my idea of a concert. And yes, there is always the general admission (lawn tickets), but not sure I want to sit on a lawn risking rain for Elton John. Maybe in his old days, but the dude is now, like me, old and overweight now ... he aint jumping around and making a show by himself and my old ass can't get comfortable on the grass like I use to
 ;D

I love the wife and all but it's not like he is her favorite musician either.

Maybe she will want to go to that Crue and Alice Cooper show?

yes,perry, it is the tour with alice opening.  i am not sure i see alice being the opening act for the crue, but alice is very good live.

i don't remember a whole lot from the corabi show (old fogey syndrome again!) so i can't really answer tha one.  i remember at one point in the show, they invited fans from the audience to come up on stage.  now just a few mind you, but ALL OF THEM!  my buddy and i thought about doing it, but then like 50 people jumped up on stage and we backed out.

you haven't heard any of the new AIC stuff?  you need to check it out.  i know cantrell and the drummer are in and i know they got a new singer and bass player, but i am not sure what their names are.  the new stuff is pretty good.  they have 2 albums out with the new singer and they are a tad more mellow than early AIC but i really like them.

Well they certainly have kept the atmosphere and sound of AOC. Cantrell does love those off 3 count measures  ;D The mood is solid in HOLLOW and while CHECK MY BRAIN sounds like it was even co-sung by Layne, it has an opening very reminiscent of early Soundgarden and ends up being close to STP in sound ... which is cool.

Good stuff  8)  

I still want that Beatles. That Ramones. That Nirvana. That Guns & Roses that just opens up rock again to a new sound. It may be out there. I mean I left music awhile ago and the radio even before that ... god the radio sound is dreadful ... but that sound may be out there, but from everything I have heard in commercials or awards shows or whatever... the industry has nothing for me. I am sure someone has that killer album out there. It has to be out there.

Or, I have just reached the age where I could look right passed it. Easily a possibility as I remember my folks not "hearing" the greatness in 3 of the 4 bands I listed above, so maybe I am just there ... in the land of Ear-Bleed where no music, no-matter how great will ever be acknowledged by my old ass.

Unfortunately, this is probably the case.

Not being mean! But even I have to 'search' more for something I want to listen to.

Because there is something about great music. I had this to say to friends a while back; " I listened to Draiman's album (frontman Disturbed) 'Device' and it was okay. Nothing to call home about, but just fine. At the same point, I had gotten a copy of Dio's 'The Last in Line,' and within the first 10 seconds of 'We Rock' I knew that this song, and this album was going to be FAKKING AWWSUM. And it was.'

You can tell when you 'find' (yeah, finding a Dio album after 40 years isn't a find, but it was my first time listening to it!), but there albums like that out there.

You just gotta have to want to slog through some stuff, be okay with some stuff, and be a little disappointed in some stuff.

Although, its just nice to listen to your stuff as well.

Good stuff  8)  

I still want that Beatles. That Ramones. That Nirvana. That Guns & Roses that just opens up rock again to a new sound. It may be out there. I mean I left music awhile ago and the radio even before that ... god the radio sound is dreadful ... but that sound may be out there, but from everything I have heard in commercials or awards shows or whatever... the industry has nothing for me. I am sure someone has that killer album out there. It has to be out there.

Or, I have just reached the age where I could look right passed it. Easily a possibility as I remember my folks not "hearing" the greatness in 3 of the 4 bands I listed above, so maybe I am just there ... in the land of Ear-Bleed where no music, no-matter how great will ever be acknowledged by my old ass.

i agree, perry.  however, i thought the Foo Fighters have come awfully close to that feeling you are talking about a few times especially with "Wasting Light" but i think the younger generations are too brainwashed by lip synching and "choreography" to notice.

We (the wife and I) do enjoy the Foo's.

You ever see their live concert in Grohl's recording studio? Pretty sweet. Wasting Light Album from the first song to the last

My wife was just online, going to buy us tickets to Motley Crue and I woke up and caught her and wasn't supposed to. She doesn't even like 80s rock, though, and was doing it for me. And those ticket prices are pretty dang high, so I told her let's save it for something we'd both like.

We already talked ourselves into it. The tickets are bought. At the end of July, in Sacramento.

i had never seen that.  good stuff.  my wife andi saw the Foos a few years ago and it was one of the best shows i have ever seen.  dave grohl is the best frontman in rock (actually, in all of music) right now IMO.  they played "Dear Rosemary" and then broke it down into "Breakdown" by Tom Petty (see what i did there? ;D) and it gave me goosebumps.

here it is.  youtube is awesome for stuff like this.
