Haven't listened to them in years but their first 2 albums were really good, especially considering their age.

They don't but calling them "garbage human beings" when nothing has been proven strikes me as a bit harsh at this moment in time but what do I know.

Yeah, it's a little soon to immediately declare them as such, however, they do look guilty as fuck so I can't really fault people for reacting that way. I'll happily revise my opinion if I'm found to be wrong somewhere down the line.

I'm holding judgement on them but I cannot listen to them now and maybe never again regardless of the outcome of this situation.

I was supposed to see them tomorrow and still have not heard about any refunds. Isn't it realistic to expect a refund when the headliner doesn't do the show?

Well, you can listen to the albums up to Organic Hallucinosis, since they basically were a different band.

And those are by far their best works anyway.

I mistakenly thought importing music from iTunes to Spotify would sync it via the cloud and allow me to access it on my Spotify account no matter the machine I was on. WRONG! Because of this, I've only listened to it through my mediocre laptop speakers instead of the nice headphones I keep at work.

I will say though that I've listened to it all the way through three times in the span of 24 hours (it was on in the background while I was multitasking), and I haven't had much desire to go back to it sense. There are some neat and catchy tracks on their for sure, but my early impressions were that too many of the tracks dragged as they attempted to go for the slower, more haunting route but didn't quite succeed in the execution.

But again, I'm hesitant to even post this - prog metal really deserves a proper listening experience, and I've certainly not put the album on and given it my full attention. So in that sense, I'm definitely not qualified to give any sort of a definitive statement. On the other hand, the fact that I'm not interested enough to go back anytime soon says a lot.

Basically, it would have been the perfect Spotify release instead of the dubious $10 purchase it ended up being :P

I was completely unaware Nuit Noire's demo's were released a few years ago. I still have a number of their first tapes around here, but I am happy to know the material got reissued.

New Wintersun sucks big time for me personally, not enjoying it all and I tried.

Thankfully, the new Ensiferum single sounds ace (I didn't like their last couple of albums), so maybe that album, Two Paths, will fill the gap https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doqAPsRp0cU.




Also, tonight it Ayreon Universe!!! Beyond stoked to see the show.

I'll have to give the new Ensiferum track another listen, it hit me as more of the same by the numbers product that they've been churning out since Jari left. Not that there haven't been some high points on each album, there's still something there, but overall not even close to what Wintersun has done. The new Wintersun actually blew me away. I'm not even much of a fan of either band anymore but the new album hit me pretty hard, and I thought Time was pretty lame.

admittedly odd senses isn't one of the mathcore GOATs like our puzzling encounters considered and ideas of reference, but I still love being able to hear more psyopus. as a heads up if you do listen... the ending is very weird.

She still hasn't made a single track that tops Feral Love for me but this is her best album yet.

Personally I like the cover...looks like a strange beast, cornered and ready to attack. Kinda freaky in a way. I also like all the other photos of that shoot that are floating around the net in articles and such.

I'm not sure if she has a single track I enjoy the most. To me she's an album artist and I agree, this may be her best yet. That's always easy to say but here I find myself repeating single songs.

It does look better up close. From afar is makes me think of a cornered puppy that's waiting for the chance to bite you....... which I think was kind of the intent but with the image of a more intimidating animal. I mean, I like what she was going for. lol

I've actually been listening to Hiss Spun from front to back repeatedly and I'm normally the type to cherry pick from albums.

Yep. Was a good time

He didn't play Sistinas "I wanted an orchestra and they wouldn't pay for it so I'm not gonna play it" (aka, I can't sing it and this would sound awful)

They started strong opening with the first 2 tracks from the album which was nice, though I got a bit peeved when they started tampering with the order. Bodies got plucked out and played last in the string of How The Gods Kill which I thought was a dumb choice. Idk if it's just hardest for him to sing or what

The stuff I thought he'd struggle with actually sounded the best, he nailed all of the loud roaring stuff, but his lower register is completely shot for the soft sections (which is why Sistinas would've been horrible)

On a semi-related note, if you ever get the opportunity to see Bad Brains in current times: don't.

Glenn is much better live than you'd expect. I saw him in Cleveland and they played a bunch of III since they were "warming up" for Riotfest. Same thing there. He absolutely nailed all the wailing, balls to the wall stuff. Lower end he struggled with, but was okay and even approached good on a couple of songs. His band was excellent, though. Sure, it's not the classic line-up, but they're tight and intense and do a good job on the old stuff. It's a bummer they didn't play III straight through at Riotfest.

New Machine Head album and tour incoming. Album coming out in January.

From Facebook post:

MACHINE HEAD ANNOUNCE WORLD TOUR FOR UPCOMING ALBUM, CATHARSIS

It's been far too long since we've demolished venues in America, we have had an awesome and productive break writing our new album "Catharsis", but now it's time for Machine Head to go melt some faces!! The reaction to our last "Evening With" tours in America were nothing short of incredible, so once again these dates will be "Evening With" and will see us performing 2 1/2 to 3 hours every night with no opening bands.
We LOVED performing as an “Evening With” for you Head Cases, and you guys loved it as well, the freedom to do whatever the fuck we wanted for as long as we wanted every night was liberating. It's not what everyone else is doing, and frankly, there are not a lot of bands who could even pull it off, but Machine Head CAN pull it off, and we are excited as fuck to do it again. We are carving our own path here, playing by our own rules, and as an artist, it's the best feeling in the world!

No festivals period, no 45 minute slots, no supporting some stupid DJ, no parking lots in a rain storm, The Head will only be "Headlining", so come on down and rage!!
MACHINE HEAD recently wrapped up recording their 9th full-length album with Zack Ohren (FALLUJAH, ALL SHALL PERISH) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. An official release date has yet to be confirmed, but a Jan. 2018 release is expected. More details to follow shortly.

E: Oh god, they are playing in my city TOMORROW! That's one hell of a sign... I hope I can make the time.

Yeah I've seen them several times and will continue to do so. I'm biased for sure but it's always a good time

It was weird because they did play the album in a block, they just messed with the order. I think it would've been far better if they just kept it as is...that's the fun of a full album show after all. Highlight of the set was likely the intro of Godless into Anything, as I figured for sure they'd do the tired routine of Skincarver opening it

I had heard someone talking after a show back in like 2009 that HR didn't yell anymore because of his Rasta lifestyle or whatever. Never actually saw videos or anything

They opened with a song I didn't recognized and followed it up with Attitude. Imagine seeing a band play some of the highest energy music ever with zero energy whatsoever

HR with some of the worst, whiny and moaning vocals I've ever heard, like he's talking in his sleep

Followed up with 2 consecutive reggae songs, at which point we gave up and went to wait for Danzig. Apparently they've had several guests touring with them, so if you've ever wanted to hear Randy Blythe come out and sing for Bad Brains then uhhhhhhh

Here's a video of Pay To Cum in 2010 if you want an idea

And whatever the fuck this was from saturday

Lol, eh, he's an old man. But ya, that's definitely for super fans only. Honestly I'd probably go see them if they played here, but not if Randy Blythe was singing.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...order-20160316

I only skimmed but both HR and Dr. Know have had recent gofundmes for medical bills. I vaguely remember reading that Dr. Know had serious issues.

"At around the same time as H.R.'s headaches became more severe, Dr. Know suffered cardiac arrest and ended up on life support. He is still in rehab please check out his support fund for more information."
