I want to like to this band but they are just so boring.
Halestorm – Into The Wild Life 2015 Full Album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twIFnpi34AI#ws)
The album is not terrible and the second half improves on the first half, but I'd give it a 6.5

man, you should see the psychotic state that is my facebook feed.

I've been catching up on a lot of music lately.


but my favorite song of the year is from a genre called 'gypsy punk'
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkkIwO_X4i4 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkkIwO_X4i4)

although it's in very stiff competition with perhaps the most fucking epic song ever made, from this Finnish epic music composer, who, being a Finn, also appreciates heavy metal :)

oh, and as soon as RuTracker is back up and running I'll be gunning for this group's discography. some of it is generic EDM background music I don't care for at all, but the trip-hop stuff is nice, and it's great to hear world music where the singers are actually all good singers (rather than the 'authentic' normal folk who sound a bit off)

I had forgotten about Gogol Bordello - someone introduced me to him in the first ForumVision (Alex Butterfield?) and I immediately fell for him (Gogol,not Alex).I love that purple song particularly too! But eish,that Russian Folk Metal...notsomuch!

I was introduced to a lot of music I wanted to follow up on in ForumVision, but I never got round to it and then it was all lost in the crashes. Did anyone keep a record? I think I remember AQB saying she had made YouTube playlists each week. If they are out there, could you share the links?

No idea what genre this is. But you know I'm a sucker for the organ. Give the song time to unwind. It starts to take off at about 1:40. The band is WU LYF. The initials stand for 'World Unite. Lucifer Youth Foundation'. The song is just called LYF. Their album, Go Tell Fire To The Mountain, is one of those to appreciate by listening to the full album in one sitting (and in track order,of course). Another album like that is 'Hot Walker' by Tom Russel. Most of his stuff is rubbish. But Hotwalker is a masterpiece.

Sadly, not a big fan of their style.  Atheist or Cynic, for that matter.  Similar style, but not really my flavor.

This final part has two songs in it, when the first one ends, the next one starts when there are only about 3:30 left on the track.

I got this CD for free, and at random when I ordered a bunch of others once.  It's actually pretty good.

I've recently re-discovered Nightwish, more specifically their newer stuff.
Ever since Tarja left (or got kicked out) they're focusing less on trying to sow together metal with opera and more on creating their own distinct brand of music, and oh my word it's incredible.
It still has elements of metal and opera, but it's mostly actually just orchestral, and their albums spin epic stories and tales better than they ever did before with Tarja.
Production is 10/10, and they're doing something really really unique.
I highly recommend the album "Imaginaerum" - it's an experience like no other.

Yeah, same here, actually.  The last album I bought was Theogonia, and they've had like 4 more since then.  They were also one of the last concerts I saw several years ago.  That's where I discovered Mantic Ritual, who brought some surprising 80's style Thrash.

I'm in a "time to get new music" cycle lately, and have expanded my Susperia, Tyr, Ensiferum, and (best of all) Paradise Lost collections.  Maybe I should add Rotting Christ to that.

their latest were a lot better than Ensiferum's latest, for sure!

they've gone in a more blatant Greek folk black metal direction.

If you like Metal, by all means, give this a listen.  This is the most polished local act I've ever heard, and to think, I never would have know about them if I didn't work with the guy (Sami) at GameStop.  They announced recently a new album coming up for release on Bandcamp.  Sami is a cool guy, and he and his brother are working on a video game together.  He also contributed the main music to the game my team made and released on the Wii U, and soon, Steam.

I live in the Twin Cities, they're based in the Twin Cities.

Like I said, I worked with one of the guys at GameStop. 

I only have like 6 friends on my Playstation account, and he's one of them.  Haven't heard of Gallowbraid.  Will have to look into them.

oh, nice :)

let him know there's a group on facebook called The Folk Metal Grove with quite a few rising band members among us :)

Gallowbraid has only 2 songs, really. an EP with two acoustic tracks and two long songs. "Oak and Aspen" is awesome.

This rolled across my random shuffle currently. 

The fully orchestrated score really made the Super Mario Galaxy games feel phenomenal.  For all my gripes about Nintendo these days, these two games are as close to pure gaming entertainment perfection as one gets.  On all fronts.

^ a classic :)


what d'you think of this one (another acoustic ballad from the power metal world)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dZLsZLgzls

Stream of Passion do a cover of it, but it's pretty Evanescence'y. What I'd honestly love is to hear someone like Avril (or whoever today's Avril is, except Demi Levado who is godawful) do the same sort of acoustic version, I just always imagine there's a female voice that could do it better.
something like this

pretty good for America! (especially given how badly Melodic Death as a genre has withered under metalcore influences in the past 10 years).

if you like that, check out Hypocrisy's 'Virus' and 'A Taste of Extreme Divinity'
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKnNEsGlshE

funnily enough, their facebook page posted the song from that album that I first thought of posting -- (and actually the only one of my favorite songs from that album that is in the same vein)
https://www.facebook.com/allegaeon/posts/540680635953971

also reminds me a little of Naglfar's 'Harvest'

Ha, Hypocrisy has been a favorite for a long time.  Virus is a great album, and it seemed that part of the strength of that album came from Peter being reinvigorated for some great Death Metal after his brief stint in Bloodbath--and that was another pretty good album.

But I actually generally enjoyed Catch-22 (it was also my intro to the band), while recognizing how it's much weaker than much from the band.  The Final Chapter has my favorite Hypocrisy song: Adjusting the Sun.

Adjusting the Sun is probably the most pithy criticism of religion song I've ever heard.  It has very few lyrics, and they're pretty much right to the point.  Plus, it sounds awesome.

heh, as soon as you said that, I just had to go looking, because in my experience almost all of their lyrics are wrong (even, somehow, the Virus lyrics have a couple errors-- and those are the only official lyrics out there!)

"Reach for the sky.
Dare it for quest."

the line is 'do it for Christ' (admittedly I had to run it through a filter to pin it down, but obviously what _was_ put down as the lyrics _is not a sentence_ lol)

Tonight's drive home was ~30 miles of an eclectic mix of vaguely trip-hop electronic instrumental music courtesy of Vassar College radio until I crossed over pleasant ridge then ~20 miles of late 19th & early 20th century classical courtesy of NPR.  My CD changer in the "Silver Scarab" has died (it still scans the discs but doesn't play) but I did invest in a new antenna so I have escaped the top 40 advertisement dense hell of the major stations...

Saturday and Subday I had SWMBO's New Beetle w/iPod installed.  Sunday it was an early Uriah Heep jam both ways.

I adore 'Demons and Wizards' ...

I saw Uriah Heep opening for Deep Purple once ... one of my all time best concerts. The dudes were ... um ... not like they were in 72 but still amazing with incredible stage presence. I can't remember when it was, maybe mid/late 90's? Deep Purple were shockingly late ... and Uriah Heep just kept playing. Probably 2-3 times the length of the set they expected to play, if not longer. Deep Purple were a let down when they eventually got there. They were tired/stressed/notinthemood - and especially after UH's energy and amazing engagement with the crowd they just fell flat. They played a song or two or three then apologised and left the stage. And it still ranks as one of my best concerts ever.

Anyway ... I'm off to wake my teenage kids up with a blast of some classic 70s rock! They do so *love* it when I get in moods like this! The rest of the day will be an ongoing tussle for control of the playlist ...

hehe, that's such a funny notion to me.
I heard a Uriah Heap song* on the radio once and liked it enough to find out who it was and grab an album. I've heard them talked about in circles with the same sorta taste as me. but to me they're incredibly chill, like, I would need a few bowls to be able to finally sit down and listen to their music, or maybe if someone put them on when I woke up in the morning I could just lay in bed listening to them. 'blast' is not a word that comes to mind :D


*"Gypsy", for those curious. It reminded me of Anvil*, but softer (and with better singing)

That first Uriah Heep album was widely experimental, definitely a lot of mellower tunes there.  The is SWMBO's favorite:

Quote from: Translation by Kurt Weil
And the shark, he has teeth;
he has them in his face.
And Macheath, he has a knife,
but no one sees the knife.

And the shark's fins are
red when he sheds blood;
Mack the Knife wears a glove
on which no sign of a crime can be seen.

By the green waters of the Thames
suddenly people drop down.
It is neither plague nor cholera,
it's said: Mack's about.

On a beautiful, blue-skied Sunday
a dead man lies on the Strand
and someone turns the corner,
the one they call Mack the Knife.

And Schul Meier's still not been found,
and many such a rich man
and his money has Mack the Knife,
against whom no one can prove anything.

Jenny Towler was found
with a knife in her chest
and on the embankment there's Mack the Knife,
who knows nothing of any of it.

Where is Alfons Glite, the cab driver?
Will he ever see sunlight again?
Whoever could know,
Mack the Knife has no idea.

And the great fire in Soho,
seven children and an old man.
In the crowd Mack the Knife, whom
one asks nothing, and who knows nothing.

And the underage widow,
whose name everyone knows,
woke up and was defiled.
Mack, what was your price?

I should have been able to suss this out for myself ...but Thanks Anders :)

I had no idea the German version (lyrics by Brecht in 1926) was the original. I thought it was a US jazz standard ... It only got to USA about 1956 via Louis Armstrong. Ella Fitzgerald is famous for her live rendition in Berlin where she forgot the lyrics and improvised flawlessly!!

EVERYONE has covered this ... from Sting (in German); Nick Cave, Marian Faithful, Psychedelic Furs, the Doors, Robbie Williams etc etc.

I think Slut's version is excellent.Really like that lead vocalists style - esp now knowing the lyrics!

It's terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true. The bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and, uh, we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies and... everybody lives happily ever after.

I'm getting wound up for the show.  I went and saw them last year with my daughter.  They're back around now, but this time up in Louisville.  The show is on April, 14 which is my wife and my dating anniversary.  Also, it's a great song by Gillian Welch (who of course is in the Dave Rawlings Machine and will be there that night.  OK...fine, I gotta listen to that song now.


I couldn't find a great video of the song...but...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SS34wz0zc-A


A lot of songs by them have fan made videos on Youtube that have stuff from the dust bowl or the like.


Anyway, the wife and I are going to head up to Louisville and catch the show, stay the weekend, do the museums etc.etc.  Never spent any real time in Louisville before so it might be cool.

I've been really into this song. I'm thinking I can do a pole solo to this. When I first listened to it (it was at a pole class)- I didn't recognize the song until the "Giiiiiive yourself awaaaaaay" part. It's so pretty and she's certainly a better singer than Bono, imo.

John Lennon wrote some totally unlistenable garbage.
But he also wrote some touching songs.

This one is simple, and somehow the tune leaves you hanging.. I think.. in some way I can't quite describe (a music expert might be able to say)

But something about it is beautiful to me.
It's the music I just know I'm going to hear as I lay dying some day.

https://youtu.be/_RqdfEhG_GU


This next one must have been from his "primal scream therapy" days. It disintegrates into complete nonsense by the end.
But the first half is sublimely lovely. I can't think of many phrases sung so lighter-than-air.

https://youtu.be/eDVkkwl6aJo



Conclusion: John Lennon didn't know how to finish songs.

My Trump-rage brought back to mind a favorite from the Lyndon Johnson/Vietnam era protest music genre. Most people remember Steppenwolf from "Born to Be Wild" (the first popular lyrical reference, I believe, to "heavy metal"). This is the long title track from "Monster."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sk3sURDS4IA

The spirit was freedom and justice
And its keepers seemed generous and kind
Its leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind
Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
Now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told
Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into the noose
And it just sits there watchin'

Father John Misty's second to last single (released last week) is awesome. He's always been an awesome lyricist and this song exemplifies it perfectly.

https://genius.com/Father-john-misty-pure-comedy-lyrics
Quote
Comedy, now that's what I call pure comedy
Just waiting until the part where they start to believe
They're at the center of everything
And some all-powerful being endowed this horror show with meaning

Oh, their religions are the best
They worship themselves yet they're totally obsessed
With risen zombies, celestial virgins, magic tricks, these unbelievable outfits
And they get terribly upset
When you question their sacred texts
Written by woman-hating epileptics

On the turntable as I type: Beatles, Rubber Soul.
This Friday however, will be dedicated exclusively to Mastodon (new album: Emperor of Sand). \m/

turns out those are just borrowed verses (I do the same thing -- use famous acapellas to help me create 'beats' (otherwise my tendency is to make a sound that isn't really suitable for rappers). do love that beat though, even went to the trouble of downloading it to get it in rotation :)

I am listening to Pandora and my playlist is my own Classical Guitar and Piano station.  Normally Pandora picks out great songs for me, and classical guitar and piano ought to be easy as hell to genotype, but in this particular station about every 10th song is some weird ass haunted house sound effect kind of crap. 

For instance this one just popped up:

Quote
Helm is the dark ambient/noise project of Luke Younger, a London-based sound artist with roots in hardcore punk and industrial. His often lengthy compositions are constructed using electronic equipment and found or modified instruments, and often feature swelling drones of harsh, rusty feedback as well as more structured, rhythmic elements. Younger initially became known as one-half of Birds of Delay, his experimental duo with Steven Warwick
 

I think some code monkey at Pandora is trolling me.  I down-thumb them every time but it won't take the hint.

I think some code monkey at Pandora is trolling me.  I down-thumb them every time but it won't take the hint.

While I am not ruling that out, I want to point out that the only effect of the down-thumb is to tell Pandora not to play that particular track on that station any more. It doesn't do feature-matching on down thumbs, only on up thumbs.

There's something in your station - a seed or an up-thumb - that is matching with these unwanted tracks. I got confused by this as well, to the point where I emailed Pandora support asking whether there was any chance that preferences for one of my stations could bleed over into another of my stations.

I have a basic listening station and I have an ambient station that I use as sleep music. I keep hearing ambient tracks come up on my general listening station. Pandora said that no, thumbs-up and thumbs-down settings are station specific and don't carry over into other stations. Turns out that in my general listening station I've up-thumbed a couple of tracks by Vangelis, and that is what is generating the ambient-style tracks on that station.

The only thing that you can really do is to continue to down-thumb the unwanted tracks when they appear, or to hunt through your station settings and see if you can find what is matching to them.

Thanks -  I looked at the "created station from" seeds and found one of the offending "artists".  DELETE!  Hopefully that'll take care of it.

Now, back to my beautiful music genotype:

An acclaimed work
A well-known composer
A Romantic-Era style
Tonal harmony
Minor key tonality
A slow and stately tempo
A sonata
