I love me some Ramones.

Here is a guy who is a legend from the old NEStabs community and now vgTabs. KabukiBear. He arranges a lot of video game music for classical guitar. If anyone plays, his arrangements are surprisingly not hard to play. But they sound so beautiful and complex. Check him out, here is radical dreamers from Chrono Cross.

You guys won't be seeing me much on this thread, just the metal one.

I do like some classic rock, but other than that it's pretty much metal only. But I do listen to wide variety and wide-range of eras of metal.

Call me narrow-minded.

What does everyone think of Chester Bennington of Linkin Park taking over the vocals for Stone Temple pilots?

Personally I'm kind of on the fence.

Uhhh. What?

I mean, I guess he could pull it off. I do enjoy Linkin Park's older stuff, but I'm not sure if I could handle him singing some of STP's classics. :\

On completely different genre, I was listening to my iPod today and a song called "Heroes Come Back!!" by nobodyknows+ popped on. I guess it's the title track for Naruto: Shippuden. I didn't know it was even in there, but I really am digging it. I might need to find a way to import their cds. Between this and Rip Slyme, I'm on a strange Japanese hip hop kick at the moment. haha

if they have a new name then sure they can have whoever they want. just dont pretend to be STP.

but the only person who is an original member is chester and the new song still has a STP fell to it, so I really don't see a problem with keeping the name. It's kind of funny that post reminds me of one friend who i let barrow my Black Sabbath album Heaven & Hell and he said it sucked because it wasn't Ozzy singing on it

Anyone here like Queensryche?

I loved the 80s and 90s years of the band. I haven't heard a lot in the last decade that has wowed me, though.

The reason I ask is because I read that there are now 2 bands touring and releasing albums under the name Queensryche. Apparently frontman Geoff Tate and the rest of the band had a falling out. However, neither side is letting go of the band. So Geoff Tate is touring with a new set of guys, and the rest of Queensryche is touring with a new lead singer (also named Jeff, ironically enough). Crazy situation.
Title: Re: Music thread
Post by: disgaeniac on December 18, 2013, 10:27:07 am
I like Quennsryche!

Actually, my old guitar teacher (foolishly, in retrospect) turned down an offer to be 1 of their guitarists  :o

Another school friend of mine (Paul Crook) wound up playing w/ Anthrax...small world.

Speaking of progressive rock/new prog, look at what I picked up today:
(http://puu.sh/6Wbh9.png)

OH IT'S ONLY 3 OF MY FAVORITE ALBUMS OF ALL TIME, ESPECIALLY THE LATTER TWO

I'm dead shocked that they were in stock at my local (barely urban) music trader, let alone the Coheed and Cambria albums. $30 well spent.
Title: Re: Music thread
Post by: scott on February 14, 2014, 04:44:10 pm
Yay Coheed! I do love them, I have a playlist on my ipod of all their albums in "chronological" order.

Did you pick up The Afterman albums yet? I really enjoyed them, far more than Year of the Black Rainbow and No World for Tomorrow.

Loving the air quotes around chronological ;) "What do you mean 'you don't start your discography with 2?'" I've listened to Ascension and Descension, and they're absolutely amazing. In fact, I'm really considering reading the Amory Wars one of these days. Honestly, all of their albums are up to here in quality to me but I'd have to say Silent Earth: 3 and Second Stage Turbine Blade are tied for my personal favorite. I can't seem to find a copy of anything else around here, and for the time being I have no method of buying online (and even if I could, shipping to Canada? Yikes. Cheap Canadian retailers are few and far between.) But I'll get them all sooner or later.
Title: Re: Music thread
Post by: scott on February 14, 2014, 05:12:22 pm
Agreed. I listen to Second Stage Turbine Blade constantly. I meant "chronological" by saying my playlist starts with Ascension and ends with No World for Tomorrow. Rather than release date.

I have some of the comics and trade paperbacks, wish I had the TPB of IV: Vol 1. though... I was also able to snag the special edition of Black Rainbow with the novel bundled with it. I haven't read it yet though.

I'd have to say Devil in Jersey City is my favorite song from Second Stage Turbine Blade, and Al The Killer and Cuts Marked In The March of Men are tied for my favorite on Silent Earth 3. But the best way of listening to them is by the full album, of course. And oh, I'm silly. I forgot about the chronology of the canon.

Also, I'm so jealous about the novel and comic.

So.... I'm starting to really appreciate Madonna. I started listening to her while completing my SG-1000 game list of 1983. I decided to listen to some music and watch some movies of that year. And, honestly, Borderline may be in contention for my favorite song of that year.

I'm into some Japanese stuff too.  Some of it is anime related like BECK, Detroit Metal City, or the soundtrack from Guilty Gear X2, but for straight up bands I like, Miyavi has a couple songs I've liked, there's Sex Machineguns, Loudness, and one of my favorites is Maximum the Hormone.


Favorite Miyavi song I've come across is probably Selfish Love, those slapping guitar skills are wonderful.


His "Are You Ready to Rock" is great also.  I love the scaled back acoustic stuff.

I've dropped thousands of dollars on imports....  It kills me, but its a hobby like no other....  Locally I have not heard of a single person who is into it....  Though there seems to be a small Visual Kei following online, I haven't bumped into any at local cons either....  Miyavi's last album that I got in December ran me like 50 bucks for the LE version with shipping....  I'd love a cheap place to buy locally, but that is totally not going to happen....  I'd love to run my own hybrid Japanese culture store....  A place with a strong showing for music and film and not just anime....  Hell, even manga seems to get burned most of the time....  I only ever see manga for established anime franchises usually....

also i got the privilege to see yes this last year in concert. they played the yes album and close to the edge, just wish they would have finished up the trio and played fragile too. oh well, it was still an awesome concert.

I don't think they will.  Like you said, he was the driving force, the big face, he's been there since the beginning, he's the voice of the band.  Smoot, as sad as it was him passing, he was newer to the band.  I feel that they are gonna end Gwar and move on.  I don't think I'd want to hear a Gwar without Oderus.

Halestorm is a love/hate band for me. When I first hear a song from them, I usually like it. But then the radio station here usually runs it into the ground until I'm sick of it. And when I'm in my car, I usually just leave the radio on instead of trying to play D.J. while driving.
Title: Re: Music thread

The vocals are okay in the beginning to middle but the instrumentals are off-putting all the way.  I know I'm being too much of a critic, it's just very difficult for me to like covers.  I can only think of a few that I enjoyed.

In my neck of the woods, it's mostly hip-hop that radio stations constantly run to the ground.

I'm currently on a Chevelle kick. I recently picked up La Gargola, and it's a good album. These guys have been so solid over the years, they're really much better than many of their contemporaries and unlike so many bands of the past decade, have remained stable and focused on their art. Somehow they've maintained their contract with a major label when so many others have gotten the boot as of late and went indie.

Anyhow, I have to recommend them. So many good albums from them. They've very accessible and catchy, but also a very talented and interesting band within the scope of the mainstream.

I haven't listened to them since vena sera, but they're always a good time. I might have to pick up the albums I've missed.

Their one downfall is they're terrible live. I've seem them like 6 times opening for other bands and they tend to disappoint.

I think the main problem is the vocalist isn't so great at multi tasking his vocals and guitar playing. He comes up with really cool riffs and excellent vocals, but his performance of both at once tends to be a bit sloppy. Not always, but sometimes its a bit too rough around the edges.

These guys have been so solid over the years, they're really much better than many of their contemporaries and unlike so many bands of the past decade, have remained stable and focused on their art. Somehow they've maintained their contract with a major label when so many others have gotten the boot as of late and went indie.

Anyhow, I have to recommend them. So many good albums from them. They've very accessible and catchy, but also a very talented and interesting band within the scope of the mainstream.
I haven't listened to them since vena sera, but they're always a good time. I might have to pick up the albums I've missed.

Their one downfall is they're terrible live. I've seem them like 6 times opening for other bands and they tend to disappoint.

I think the main problem is the vocalist isn't so great at multi tasking his vocals and guitar playing. He comes up with really cool riffs and excellent vocals, but his performance of both at once tends to be a bit sloppy. Not always, but sometimes its a bit too rough around the edges.
That sounds about right. My complaint was always the vocals during the shows.

What happens when you mix classic heavy metal with another classic heavy metal singer? MAGIC.

Some of this stuff, more J-Pop leaning, is kinda my guilty pleasure lol I hate pop, but asian pop always seems to be a lot more entertaining to me and I really like when it gets mixed with metal or rock like Babymetal or Hatsune Miku in Supercell lol

So I'm resurrecting this thread because, I dunno, I like to babel about things related to music I like.

I don't know why so many bands I enjoy tend to be so unstable. I've been waiting for like 8 years for a new album from the band Band New. They're one of those bands that kind of wants to be a band, but they kind of don't. The vocalist obviously hates fame and wasn't cut out for the mainstream, but he writes good songs. So he comes out and says they'll have a new record soon but basically he doesn't want to do it anymore. Which is the same thing he did with the last record, it came out, they toured for like two weeks, then disappeared for years without any explanation. I can understand though somewhat. I've always enjoyed creating music, but I never really had any desire to be a musician, the lifestyle just never appealed to me.

I've been attempting to rekindle my love for playing, as I was recently given a proposition to play drums with some guy to start up a band. I dunno if I'll take it or not. I've also been going through a pretty nostalgic period myself, listening to some of my old stuff that my friend and I did back in the day. I can't believe how long it's already been. I'm feeling a bit rusty too, trying to pick it back up. I've been thinking of putting up a Bandcamp page for it, since it's basically going to waste now as I'm the only one who still has any of it. We were studio only project for the most part, though we played a few live sets, once just to record it and then no one ever saw that either. It was great times though, and for me thats what it's all about.

I recently got "Chevelle - Wonder What's Next" CD off of 99Gamers.com.

I've always liked this band from the songs I've heard on the radio ("Send the Pain Below", "Red", and "Jars"). But I hadn't heard an entire album by them until I just got this.

I missed out on a great band! It's like Staind and Tool had the sex, and a beautiful rock baby named Chevelle came out.

Give these guys a chance beyond just their normal radio hits. At least the first album I can vouch for. You won't regret it if you like that bass-y, progressive, melodic with an edge; hard to describe Tool sound.

For sure. I am a big fan of them. If you like Wonder What's Next, then there are a lot of other records by them you need to also check out. They've remained very solid and true to their sound over the years. Plus there is a new album currently in the works for this spring, the last I heard.

I am currently hooked on a album I got this Xmas by another band I really like a lot and miss called Fear Before The March of Flames, the album entitled Fear Before and it was their last release. These guys are hard to explain, but they were rooted in hardcore punk, yet they are heavily influenced by progressive rock, it is sometimes heavy and sometimes melodic. This album was their most tame release.

I'm really digging Aesthesis by Dead Letter Circus right now, which is another album I recently got this holiday. I think it might be my favorite album from them. There is a pinch of melancholy in this one that contrasts and adds an interesting component to their sort-of spacey, almost bouncy style of music. I'm really hooked on this right now, and I feel like more people need to know about this band.

I'm not a country music fan by any stretch, that's the realm of my wife and daughters.  But....this past Friday, my wife won two tickets from the radio station 93.7 the Bull in St. Louis to see Brad Paisley with Tyler Farr and Maddie & Tae.  We drove up Friday when I got off work and she was then told she won the grand prize.  So what she really won was two lawn tickets, two pit tickets, two "bar stage" tickets and two meet & greet tickets.  Our daughters used the lawn seats and we went to the pit.  When Paisley came on, they took us backstage.  Us and about 18 other people were then led on stage where there were two bars set up with kegs.  We were sitting on the stage with the musicians playing all around us, drinking free beer.  After the show, we went back and met Brad Paisley and got our picture taken with him and got autographed 8x10's.

I have to say I had a really good time, even if the music wasn't my style.  And there's not a damn thing wrong with some free beer!   :P

I like it, because it's a step in the right direction, away from St. Anger.

However, it feels a little amateurish by Metallica standards, at the same time. I know Metallica can do much better. This sounds like a filler-song on one of their earlier albums.
Title: Re: Music thread
Post by: kamikazekeeg on September 03, 2016, 08:37:05 pm
The problem is that I don't think Metallica knows how to really write music anymore.  I still think James is a good singer and rhythm player, Rob is the best musician in the band, but Kirk can't solo anymore and Lars sounds is so stripped down and basic, which is saying something as he was never a very intricate drummer compared to a lot of the others of the time.

I'll take it because they aren't bad, but I also am not a huge fan of their current sound.  They are one of the biggest metal bands ever, but I've seen Youtubers with better production quality than these guys.

I say that, but I'm still quite interested in the band, especially after this, so I at least hope it's better than Death Magnetic, which had a few good ideas, but was kinda marred by production quality and sorta aimlessly long songs.

people here like to talk about music and instead of have thread made for certain genre/niche, here is thread for all genres and music news.

I am aware of the other music threads but this one started off as a more of an education music band thread, and then later turned into another what are you listening to now thread. I wanted to revive this one instead of making another thread.

Anyway. (my own writing about Journey the classic rock band)

I have all the Joruney albums from when they first stared in 1975 and till they released their "Eclipse album in 2011"
Has anyone like or listened  the classic rock band called Journey lately?

and know the fact that Stave Perry was not the original singer for Journey the band?
believe it or not the band Journey's original singer was Gregg Rolie and the band started out as a rock band in 1975. and had a completely different sound then when Steve Perry joined.  they started their debut album in 1975 about 2 years before Steve Perry joined the band in 1977., as some may know Steve Perry also left Journey to start a solo carrier (I think) then he the returned, left, and I guess now he's back, Apparently hs is 71 years old today, and according to what I just saw, he's back with the band  again. in 2020

I like Steve Perry as a singer, but since I figure not too many people heard Journeys first three albums.  I think you should give them a shot to see if you like them or not. I'd thought I'd bring these guys up since they even had their own video game called Journey Escape for the Atari 2600, they are not a metal band but they sounded like a complely other band when they first debuted in 1975 so give these albums a listen if you have not already.

Anyone a fan of the mighty Queensryche?

Love this band, at least the 80s and 90s album. Very unique style, talented musicians, and an amazing vocalist in Geoff Tate. It's a shame Tate and the rest of the band split ways.

Operation Mindcrime in particular is a masterpiece of a concept album, my favorite by them.

I am! I got 5 of their albums by them their pretty good I have "Rage For Order" Operation Mindcrime" "Promise Land" "Tribe" And "Hear In Now frontier"

if anyone liked to hear the album "@burningdoom" mentioned I recommend checking out "Rage for Order" album also by the band called Queensryche I assume some people might confuse the band "Judas Priest" because Queensryche and Judas Priest sound alike to me.

I also recommend "Hear In The Now Frontier" if anyone likes a more modern type of alternative.  Queensryche is a great band the first album I heard of them was "Hear In The Now Frontier" but my mom got me into Rage For Order album as well

Andrew WK released some new music with "Babalon" and it's really good and completely different than anything he did before, I think I've listened to this song a bunch of times now.  He just seems like the coolest, nicest, most high energy dude, who seems to be all about being as feel good as possible, but here with Babalon, it's a much darker and more outright metal riffing and lyrics, the title confusing me at first as I learned "Babalon" is different from "Babylon" and has occult origins, and it seems like Andrew did all the music himself which he didn't do before and he kills it.  I knew he could do piano, it's a big thing he's known for in his music, but not everything else which is pretty awesome.  Even the piano stuff in this is more synthy than what he usually goes for.  If this is what the new album is going for, I'm all on board.  It's very different than any of his previous stuff, but you can still feel that energy he has through the music and those final notes, hitting that falsetto, it's impressive.  I remembered hearing it before on his previous album, but it's very buried in the mix, so it's not nearly as noticeable as it here.

I like the song more then the video personally, it reminded me a lot of  the band called "Domine" and their "Dragonlord (Tales Of Nobel Steel) album. It's good to know metal is going back to it roots now  these days. I am tired of all the grunge and alternative metal that still  plays constantly on the modern radio stations from the 2000's and 1990's I am tired of grudge bands I am sick grunge and I never liked Pearl Jam, I bought 3 or 4 Pearl Jam Albums and I never saw why people thought they were so great.

Can anyone recommend me some good, new metal? I've had a hard time finding good, new metal.

I'm into melodic death metal, metalcore, 80s thrash, classic metal, and hair metal. A little of the 90s/early 2000s nu-metal stuff, too, but not the rap-infused bands. Even a little progressive like Queensryche, Savatage, and Nightwish.

Evile has a new album coming out and they are a a modern thrash band.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZWPMwQJL60

Nuclear Power Trio is a killer prog metal group who is sort of a "supergroup" I believe with the musicians involved, though I don't remember who they are,  no vocals though, but awesome instrumentation.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IN4xUDjPOSE

KOSM is one of my favorite newer bands, a prog metal band with a mixture of clean and harsh vocals, who have a Cthulu-esque/Bloodborne influence to their lyrics and even just released a Bloodborne inspired EP abit ago.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IObkAsGT7Gk

One of my most listened to songs from last year was Spiritbox "Holy Roller", and I dig them though I haven't gone too much into the songs, also could be sorta similar to KOSM with clean and harsh vocals, though this song is all harsh, but man it's a headbanger.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWE0sSZ9yLc

This is some of their clean vocal stuff.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1Bzo6SdS3c

I just noticed that Amorphis put out some new music and I liked one of their albums from before, it's like progressive/folk/power, so might lean into the bands you brought up towards the end, though they mix in some growling vocals too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zH8u_BmGysc

And for just kicks, Gloryhammer is that very not-serious power metal fun to have lol

There's probably a few other things I listened to over like the past year or two, I'll add them when I think of them.

What are folks most uncommon or sort out of place music genre they listen to? Not to say that it's weird to like more than a few certain things, but I'm generally a metalhead, give me something loud, fast, and heavy, I'm golden, it's 80% of what I listen to with rock and punk and some other stuff peppered in depending on my mood.  I think the most out of place genre I'm into, when it's not like synthwave (Though I prefer heavier sounding synthwave with driving guitar, like Dance with the Dead or Carpenter Brut), would be Japanese City Pop.  If I want something super chill, this is something I really enjoy.  I don't know tons of it, but basically the music for the Bubblegum Crisis OVA's is great and I've found some good playlists on Youtube.  Not sure why I love it, they usually have pretty great bass going on and just overall a nice band with smooth Japanese vocals, it just hits right.

I listen to a little of everything even 1940's and 1950's music is inside my primary playlist. My favorite is light metal and hard rock, but I even dig rock 'n' roll, pop, grunge, soul, R&B some gospel I love inspirational hard rock a lot, I like new wave, new age,

Favorite instrument style of metal Bass guitar grind, I don't like screamo, death metal, black metal, or anything that leads towards honoring Satan or with hateful lyrics, and

defiantly not torcher soundtracks believe it or not this was a thing apparently I  once bought a used copy of a "Noise Reduction soundtrack" I had not a clue what the fuck it was when I picked it up .every song was someone screaming bloody murder with one song call gasoline. I was not music it was just people screaming for their lives from what I remember, I didn't listen to it.

I immeditly got rid of it and broke that CD in pieces and put it into the trash.

While they haven't gone out of style at all, I feel like getting a soundtrack for a movie is much less common these days than they use to be, especially since CD's aren't as big of a thing as they use to be, but what were movie soundtracks you were into? I had nostalgia spurred by something recently thinking about this and I know one of the top of my head right away was I'd walk around my town listening to the Gone in 60 Seconds soundtrack.  It's kind of abnormal for what I was even listening to at the time, with like hip hop, alt rock, and electronic stuff, but particularly the more electronic stuff kinda hooked me, like Stop the Rock, Flower, and Busy Child.

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/ac/Gone_in_60_Seconds.jpg/220px-Gone_in_60_Seconds.jpg)

I know there is another one or two from around this time that hooked me, but my dumb brain is struggling to remember, I'm sure I'll figure it out soon enough. 

Also randomly, all this electronic music reminded me of that popular Fatboy Slim song from that time with Christopher Walkens dancing in it and turns out they re-released in 4k and it's crazy to think I'm looking at it in better quality now than I did online years ago in the early 00's lol Also it's funny watching this now in such high quality, because you can clearly see the stunt doubles way more clearly now when Walken has to like jump off stuff lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCDIYvFmgW8

Screamo is another subgenre of Emo according to what I read, I probably never heard any Emo before but I've heard Screamo, and it's basically just guys in their teens and 20's just shouting and yelling (at the top of their lungs) out lyrics that only some people are able to understand what they are even saying.

Death metal and Black metal is the vary next step down the Screamo latter. Only Death Metal has more of a growling like screamo type of lyrics, and Black metal is pretty much the same as Death only it's more for hard core fans of the Death and Screamo/Emo latter. My sister used to listen to all of the above AND just about everything I listen to as well. Except I don't think she ever listened to any torcher soundtracks AND NO not she is not a Satan worshiper either, she just used to like growling metal for some reason.

I'm guessing that people listen to that kind of metal because it lets out their aggression and frustration, but that only my guess on the take. :-\

Purple Rain's the movie soundtrack is another movie soundtrack that is actually vary good in my opinion, it was made by the famous Pop/Rock 1980's Singer and band called
"Prince And The Revolution" If any of you grew up listening to the radio in the 1980's, or 1990's and so on.

Might have heard the famous song "When The Doves Cry" or the Song called " Purple Rain" I'm sure if you heard the song I'm sure anyone might have heard them before on the radio.

Screamo (and emo) while not technically a genre, is a label which encompasses a lot of things, most of which are rooted in some fashion from the hardcore punk scene and having almost nothing to do with heavy metal. It's some of the best music produced by my generation and frankly if you don't like it, you are probably lame. Aside from the technical death metal scene, there's been relatively little else that's even notable to come out of gen Y. Our pop music was absolute garbage, our rock music was terribly cookie cutter crap, our hip-hop was comically abysmal, and our country the most embarrassing yet.

Of course, music is one of the most subjective things ever. Everyone has their own take on it and that's just fine. My take is your favorite band is crap, and screamo for the win.

That explains a lot...

That's fine with me, I'll listen to what I like and you can listen to what you like ;)

As a Gen Y according to it ranging back to 1981, I do not support this statement lol

I'm just poking fun, I actually tried to find some screamo bands to see if I ever listened to them, but it seems like a lot of people think "screamo" are just metalcore or post-hardcore bands, and even then, I've barely listened to that genre outside of a couple bands, so I'm pretty sure I've listened to no screamo.  Mid-2000's, I was listening to older bands doingstuff or I was listening to other bands that had put out stuff in the 2000's like Dragonforce, 3 Inches of Blood, Lamb of God, etc...

If born in 1981, an aspiring musician likely would not have not have bore fruit until at least the late 90s. By that point they'd be in their late teens which is usually when most start their music careers and that sounds about right. I dig a lot of music from the late 90s through the late 2000s and into the 2010s. If you're talking bands that were already performing or peaking in their careers from the 80s and through the 90s, those weren't millennials they were the gen X'ers.

But yeah, a lot of what gets labeled screamo is essentially post-hardcore of some fashion. You have the more avant-garde variety like The Number Twelve Looks Like You, Blood Brothers, Fear Before, Rolo Tomassi.... the pop-infused variety like Pierce the Veil, Senses Fail, Silverstein, and then the more orthodox post-hardcore like Title Fight, Sunny Deal Real Estate, Pianos Become The Teeth, etc. I kinda like all of that sort of stuff. Never could get into the "metalcore", although that scene in itself was freaking HUGE... I've always struggled to get into most things metal, outside of some progressive.

Check out the song Grandfather by The Number Twelve Looks Like You. It's an awesome blend of screamo with some progressive.

I like it. I actually enjoy a lot of pop music from the 60s and 70s, that was probably the golden age for pop music. It's hard to fathom an era when turning on the radio resulted in hearing pleasant songs.

Today's pop music is like you don't know if it's meant to make you laugh at the absurdity, cry, or cringe on behalf of all humanity.

Discovered this band through an ad on YouTube while listening to Insomnium.

Pretty damn cool Metalcore song. I will be exploring them more. Just wanted to share in the awesomeness. \m/
