BongCauldron - Binge

"BongCauldron aren't looking to reinvent the wheel with their piss-tainted brand of sludge rock, they'd rather crack you over the head with it. Hairy, lairy, and with tongues firmly in cheek, the power of a low-slung riff with ample groove is felt throughout this full-length debut" - Metal Hammer

Having been to both and met both of you at those shows and the SBE gig (weren't you there that night too Patrick?) that was officially released as Lamentations...(christ on a bike, that was 14 years ago😲) they were all special to me and as recordings i think they all great but the intimacy and excitement at the latter was something else.....I'm glad I got to see what I consider to be the classic 1997-2006 line up play several times. Its an almost completely different band now and definitely not the one I loved so much. I blame Akerfeldt's ego and his friendship with/hero worship of Steven Wilson for 'ruining' the band (in my eyes at least) The "new" guys are all great musicians" in their own right, and arguably technically superior to those they replaced, but I think the band dynamic and groove lost something precious each time a former member left/was fired. I shall probably still buy their records but I no longer find them exciting to watch and haven't made the effort over the last couple of years and I cant see that changing tbh. It was great while it lasted though.

I've banged on about them before and make no apologies for doing so again...if you like early to mid period Opeth (with clean vocals) and Tool/A Prefect Circle with a bit of 70's Floyd here and there,  check out SOEN, the project featuring Swedish drummer Martin Lopez (ex-OPETH, AMON AMARTH), bassist Steve DiGiorgio (SADUS, TESTAMENT, DEATH, ICED EARTH), vocalist Joel Ekelöf (WILLOWTREE) and guitarist Kim Platbarzdis.....I caught them last year and the best compliment I can pay them is that I felt that same kind of excitement watching them as I did seeing Opeth for the first time when I was still in the first flush of my 2nd childhood/1st mid life crisis.

Threshold-Legends of the Shire.

Like the bastard son of Dream Theater and Bon Jovi, they have taken all the shittest elements of each band, thrown them into a big mixing pot with the likes of Haken, Lonely Robot, Ayreon, Frost, Spocks beard, and distilled it nto something absolutely fecking appalling.

So full of cliches, twiddly bits and extended keyboard wankery, that it is totally unlisteneable. Variuos places calling this Prog album of the year 2017.

Still: Yes - Topographic Oceans; thoroughly enjoying it and, although it's obviously big, bloated, spaced-out and sometimes even avant-garde, it's not half as impenetrable as it's often made out to be.

I just hope the forthcoming live shows do it justice.

Other than my own stuff, I listened to the new Judas Priest album today, because everyone seems to be raving over it. Don't know what all the fuss is about. Sounds like a very well produced average Judas Priest album to me.


Also had a listen to Conjurer's "Mire". My mate Brady's band. Suddenly gone from playing dives in Bolton to having their album streamed by The Independent and Kerrang! calling them the future of metal. Again, I just don't get it. Told him as much. Jonners - have a listen and let me know if its just me.

Goatsnake - I

For reasons I can't quite fathom I only discovered this band this weekend. Feel sick that I've found them after they've called it a day, and that I never got to see them live - especially considering the Nick Raskulinecz and Kyuss connections. They tick every single one of my southern / stoner / NOLA rock boxes. The track "Innocent" has been lodged in my brain for days: so so slinky.

It's ok.  Some decent tunes, a few average ones.  Most likely will get no further listens after the gig a week on Monday.


Bought tickets for both arctic monkeys Newcastle shows yesterday and went back and listened to their 5 records - and the contrast with the MSP was stark.  An incredible feat having 5 superb records on the bounce that show a clear and obvious creative and artistic arc - musically there's not a lot in common, but it made me think of The Police - started off all spiky and punky ended up with the sophisticated brilliance of Synchronicity - a perfect career over the course of 5 records.


For me, AM now belong in the pantheon of all time greatest rock bands.  Seriously...


Sorry, you were asking about MSP... ::) ;D

Mmmm, unconvinced by AMs myself....I liked the last one.

Manics started brilliantly, re-strated even better (controversial!) and faded away after This is my Truth....

As you say there have been some great singles over the years and the singles I've heard from the new one are fine enough....

If I'm reaching for a Manics disc its likely to be EMG, TIMT or National Treasures...

I can assure you I don't haha.


I hear this a lot these days though. I am fully aware that the niche genres of music I like these days are alien to 95% of TNMSers, and thus most of you are unlikely to have heard of any of the bands I listen to. I remember the same thing happening when CQ was releasing his early compilations 10 years ago - it would be a miracle if I'd heard of any of the bands on his 20 track CDs.  ;D


On a semi-serious note, I do try to state when I post in this thread which of the stuff I listen to (and release on my label) might be of interest to people on TNMS. Grave Lines are not one of those bands.


I would encourage you to seek out the new Boss Keloid album "Melted On The Inch" when it is released next week. Yes, they are friends of mine. They signed with Holy Roar Records earlier this year and this new record has been garnering rave reviews (Prog Magazine - "An extraordinary piece of work"; Prog Metal Madness - "A tightly honed and polished masterpiece"; 2 page glowing feature in Metal Hammer, included in The Guardian newspaper's top 50 April tracks, Kerrang! artist of the month......)

Any thoughts on King Goat ARH?



Good band. Revenants is a killer track. You seeing them in Brum this weekend? If so look out for support band Mage, who are also ace (my mate Woody plays guitar for them).

Sleep - The Sciences


Dropped with zero fanfare at midnight.
18 years after Dopesmoker, and 26 after Holy Mountain, I wondered if they would ever get another album out..... and if it would be any good.
Well bugger me, its INCREDIBLE. If you love early Sabbath, and have any regard at all for all things stoner, you need to get on this right now.
The guitar and bass tone is pure Iommi and Butler circa 1970.
I can't imagine I'll be listening to anything else for quite some time.

APF Records Sampler...3 tracks in

1. Bong Cauldren. Great start, excellent Sabbathesque riff and then the vocals (!) :-\
2. Pist. A better vocal than BC, but the playing isn't as good and the drum sound is a bit "thin"
3. Trevor's Head. Reminds me of a doom version of the Buzzcocks....

More to come when I have a few mins

When I heard a single I couldn't quite like it. But now Ihaveheard the whole album, it makes sense. It is very different in tone than the earlier APC but similar in intention. I still need to get used to it somewhat but I feel it is a grower.

The Hyena Kill - Spun


Yes, it's on my label. But I can't stop listening to it. Deftones meets A Perfect Circle in Manchester. Went to their EP launch show at a packed Deaf Institute in Manchester last night. Gig of the year so far. Spun is out on Monday, but the singles Exit Mask and Pound of Flesh are on Spotify now.


For anyone interested, next few dates:


22.4 - Glasgow, The Garage Attic
23.4 - Newcastle, Think Tank Underground
24.4 - London, Old Blue Last at Shoreditch
25.4 - Bristol, Mother's Ruin

APF Records - The Sound of Heavy Vol1 & 2

My system has muddled these 2 compilations together for my delight (cos some one named them both The Sound of Heavy  ::) )

A quick run down for Andy

Bong Cauldron - can see why you make a fuss about these guys but the vocals are shit

Pist - Oh I like this. Great riffs, vocals work well.

Diesel King - Not bad, nice and heavy but again far too shouty vocals

Trevor's Head - Er no. Crap music, awful wailing

Desert Strorm - Very heavy. Like this. Growlly vocals actually work

Mastiff - Complete musical mayhem. I like

Nomad - it starts so well and then the shit singing starts

RedEye Revival - party rock quite a contrast to the rest but shit shouty vocals. They can keep their party

The Wizards of Delight - Very silly power goth metal. Nice riffs, good fun

Tronald - slow heavy riffs dominated by low growly vocals. All trying to be very almospheric. Not my cup of tea

Under - Nothing really grabbed me - just drifted past



I'll stop there for now and listen to something a smoother.

The Hyena Kill - more of a grungy/punk feel to this. Nivarana a big influence by any chance?

Ba'al - Saved the best for last. Powerful rock with vocals to match.

Holy feck, this is dividing opinion.  Me?  Love it.  Probably the most daring record by a mainstream successful rock band since 'Kid A'.  Completely unrecognisable from anything they've done before.  They are really one of the all time great rock bands, I think - and this record confirms that.


I mentioned elsewhere that this is what must have been like listening to Bowie's Young Americans in the 70's.  They really have 'done a Bowie'

I have had a craving for War Of The Worlds for a couple of weeks now, and finally gave in tonight.

I transferred the CD onto my Sony high-res player, and plugged my headphones in and way to go.

Phenomenal. 40 years on, and sounds amazing. The first thing that caught me was the voice of the late, great, Richard Burton.

Is this an album that could be made nowadays? Would it have such an impact if it did?

Interested to hear that Nathan James (Inglorious front man) will be singing Thunder Child during the upcoming 40th anniversary live shows. Great voice. Great presence too.

Really enjoying some new releases:
Zeal and Ardor - Stranger Fruit - worthy successor to Devil is Fine
New Yob album is also earth shattering (quite literally)
Ne Tremonti, somehow this one clicks with me. It is a bit more diverse than the previous 3 he did.
And, one of the most anticipated releases will drop in 2 weeks: the new Khemmis album. Pre-ordered it at their Bandcamp page and the anticipation only grows. The epic sound and feel of Isolation is something to be cherished.

Some of it is very Lerxst-ish. Rush fans will find much to admire.

Khemmis is brilliant, the newest one Desolation is a contender for album of the year. The prevous one 'Hunted' was already named just that in 2016 by Decibel magazine.

Ever heard Anciients? Same same, but different, but more proggy but also that thick layered sound, worth checking out their albums Hear of Oak & Voice of the Void.

It's That Time Of Year Again Folks!!  :D   The Annual Summer Spinning Of A Richard Marx Album!  Because, hey, someone's got to listen to an artist who provides the perfect soundtrack of the season, right?; no, doom-mongers, thrashers, death-metallers and sludge-meisters, it's okay - you're welcome.  ;)

This year, we're going right back to the start of the Richard Marx phenomenon, which heralded a time when our favourite soft rock songsmith was producing worldwide smash hit singles at such a rate he was farting them in his sleep.  Yes, it's Marx's iconic, triple-platinum (in the US), eponymous debut:

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/8/8d/Marxmarx.jpg/220px-Marxmarx.jpg)

Kicking off with three top five (in the US) singles, the corking top-down opener Should've Known Better and, for me the album's best track, Don't Mean Nothing, and the beach sunset smooth pop-rock of Endless Summer Nights, this quickly lays down the template of Marx's penchant for ultra-radio-friendly songs brimming with glorious, sun-kissed hooks.  The lighter-waving ballad Hold On To The Nights - Marx's first no. 1 single (in the US) - set a precedent realised a couple of years later by Right Here Waiting, which of course remains a staple of late night radio that's so frequently played and widespread they've probably heard it on the planets orbiting 61 Virginis.

Okay, so the last three cuts of this 10-track album are bland, skippable 80s filler that lack the usual Marx Magic Dust, but what comes before ranges from solidly good to sensational, and the album rightly retains its place as one of the best debut albums of that decade - in the US, or anywhere.  8)

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/8/8d/Marxmarx.jpg/220px-Marxmarx.jpg)

Kicking off with three top five (in the US) singles, the corking top-down opener Should've Known Better and, for me the album's best track, Don't Mean Nothing, and the beach sunset smooth pop-rock of Endless Summer Nights, this quickly lays down the template of Marx's penchant for ultra-radio-friendly songs brimming with glorious, sun-kissed hooks.  The lighter-waving ballad Hold On To The Nights - Marx's first no. 1 single (in the US) - set a precedent realised a couple of years later by Right Here Waiting, which of course remains a staple of late night radio that's so frequently played and widespread they've probably heard it on the planets orbiting 61 Virginis.

Okay, so the last three cuts of this 10-track album are bland, skippable 80s filler that lack the usual Marx Magic Dust, but what comes before ranges from solidly good to sensational, and the album rightly retains its place as one of the best debut albums of that decade - in the US, or anywhere.  8)

I played that yesterday too. Gets better with age.  Really looking forward to seeing Schenker later this year, even if the people in the band aren't up to it.  Was watching a clip from last decade (?) and the rhythm section was Neil Murray and Simon Phillips - he should be playing with people of that standard..

Pretty sure I've still got my tape of this (Memorex, that came in a clapperboard-style case, with the 2 white plugs to stop the tape moving...)

Don't know tbh....lots of the old soundboard / radio show bootlegs are starting to turn up on Amazon as "semi official" releases, Rush ABC for example is one of the very early radio broadcasts.

I think that they kind of fall into the grey area of the copyright has run out for that performance and now they have been picked up by small labels/pressing plants and produced for sale. I think they are un-official in terms of band/management don't get any payment for them or are able to stop them or even have any say in their presentation or quality.

I know I am not supposed to mention it here, but have had Caress of Steel on in the Car over the weekend.

I am always amazed how marmite this record is with the fanbase, although I imagine its because of what came afterwards, and because the band themselves have distanced themselves from it.

However, I have always loved it, and listened to it through 3 times this weekend, and there are very few Rush records i could do that with these days.

What got me, more than anything else, was the space in the record, allowing the performances to absolutely shine through, the "silences" in some of the tracks rather than a total, continuous aural assault, and the subtlety in  the songs which is totally missing from the last 20 years or so of releases.

Thoroughly enjoyed revisiting it, and rather depressingly made me realise I hadnt enjoyed a studio release by the band since 1988!!!

I just found myself analysing it massively, arguably at the time they were more of a hard rock/metal band but somehow the songs have more subtelty and class, rather than something horrible like BU2B which is just loud for loudness sake, masking the crap that the song actually is.

Common on lots of "modern music". Compression and radio "loudness wars" (making a track sound "bigger" on radio have a lot to answer for). Also, lots of music these days is deliberately "tuned" to sound good when compressed for mp3/ iphones use. Even the bandwidths on digital radio are being reduced to squeeze more channels in....

Indeed great band and Barnsey is a great frontman and Solo artist, was made aware of them mid 80's when a mate of mine came back from an Australian holiday and I quickly devoured their back catalogue, and got to see Jimmy on his Freight Train Heart tour at Brixton. Finally got to see Cold Chisel 4 years or so ago when they re-formed and played Hyde Park ( on a bill of other bands ) and their own headline show at Shepherds Bush Empire.

Saw Testament back in '87, I think that was their peak actually, they had just released The Legacy at the height of the Bay Area thrash invasion. They released a live album from that show, the Eindhoven Insanity. Quite memorable, other than that I have never been a big fan.

High on Fire though, I rate very highly. It became a bit samey the last few years but it sounds like Shirtless Matt has found his mojo again. Must be his playing with Sleep that got him excited to put some more diverse tunes in. Nice.

Saw them about the same time - first supporting Anthrax then on their own and I think the last time in 1990 or 91 when they were part of the Clash of the Titans line-up with Slayer/Metallica and Suicidal Tendancies.
I had not listened to them in a while but their most recent release Brotherhood of the Snake is well worth  a spin.

Was a bit of blast from the past for me - I had a few early albums on cassette that a friend gave me years ago, she was very into the dark doom metal of the early/mid 80's - I didn't really follow the band beyond this album if I am honest but I may dig into the later stuff on Deezer.

It's another cracker from Boots, I'd lost touch with his work for the last 13 years or so!


However on Saturday I got to see him play an impromptu hour long set in my mate's record shop
(which opened in 1951, probably one of the oldest in the country?) - Ian lives over the road from it 😉
Brilliant lyricist, top bloke and still sings superbly - everything sounds EPIC! 😁


You'll really enjoy his London gig, I'm going to catch him at the Cavern just before Christmas 👍

Thanks I'd agree with everything  you said about McNabb - great song writer, if he had been american he would have been a huge star.
Gig at your mate's record shop sounds fun. I believe McNabb is still banned from the Stables in Milton Keynes after a post gig sing along at the piano got out of hand.

Its one of the benefits of moving from "buying" music to using Google Play or similar, I am now literally downloading ridiculous amounts of music, trying it and being very brutal if I dont like it.

Following www.angrymetalguy.com has opened my eyes to so many bands and styles I have not tried in the past.

When they're sung by young women though, that's "empowering". Check out A.D.I.D.A.S. by Little Mix.  No different to Kittens Got Claws.

They say that it's overrated
Well they ain't doin' it right
Oh,
All day I dream about sshh...
With you (You, ooh, ooh, ooh)

Since I met you I been thinkin' all day
I been Googlin' ways
To keep you entertained
It's been 3 weeks since we started to play
Now it's serious babe
Cos what you do is cr(azy)

I never had somebody who
Could do them things
Make me so ooh, ooh, ooh

(So come on baby, baby)
(Come on pretty baby)
(You're gonna get it tonight)


Slavin' in the kitchen
Iced you a cake
Then I served you a plate
But that ain't what you ate, no
We been busy doin' all Fifty Shades
Whilst we listen to Drake

We on that hot love and emotion

I never had somebody who
Could do them things
Make me so ooh ooh ooh

So come on baby baby
Come on pretty baby
You're gonna get it tonight

You got that goodie, goodie (Uh huh)
And I'm addicted

I'm on that kissy kissy
(Bang-bang), delicious

All day I dream about it (What?)
Baby so how's about it
You know I'm all about that

Excuse me
Do me or lose me
Get me to the bedroom
Do your duty
(Milkshake Milkshake)
Bet you like some of that strawberry
Like a wave gonna come (tsunami)
Wanna take this ride better (hurry)
Cos me one you there's a (million)
And they all wanna (huh') my Brazilian

Well they ain't doin' it right

I work in the public sector and was pulled up the other day for saying "man-hours" instead of "person hours." I laughed and proceeded to use "man-hours" for the rest of the meeting. I then had an e-mail from my manager's manager asking if I needed "specialist training" for "gender awareness"....I laughed again. I await next steps...

First four albums are magnificent, and one of my favourite live albums ever is the Live in Stockholm from 1990, absolutely brilliant album!

Dave Pearce Trance Anthems 2010

Dug this out for re-appraisal and for a break of genre, so to speak.  There's 3 CDs totalling 60 tracks in the mix here, so inevitably there's quite a bit of filler; there are established trance/dance classics given mostly pointless remix treatments, including a bafflingly lame interpretation of Paul Van Dyk's For An Angel (one of those ubiquitous dance tracks frequently used on the telly), but the good stuff is really, really good, with Reflekt's sublime Need To Feel Loved and Neptune Project's extraordinarily stirring Aztec being examples of the genre at its pinnacle and highly worthy of investigation to the lay person.

Weird isn't it how music can produce such different responses in any two people. Except for Blue Monday and a few Kraftwerk tunes I just cannot listen to dance music...tbh I'm not even sure they're in the same category. I lstened to the two examples you promoted and had to skip through both all the way through.

This is Asphyx with main man Martin van Drunen on vocals. True old school death metal. If that's your thing, try Hail of Bullets, also with van Drunen on vocals. They have retired now, but I think they have 3 albums out there.

Yes, Dreamline, Bravado and Where's My Thing? hold up side one and I agree that the only decent tune on the flip-side is Ghost of a Chance. Heresy, Neurotica and You Bet Your Life are excruciating.

They might be the old messiahs,  certainly good at what they do and some of the long jams on YouTube I enjoy. But as you say they don't bring anything new other than some youth and vigour to the classic rock format. Only young so maybe they will develop into another kind of rock butterfly.

Not bad - only played it through once - a couple of tracks seem to suffer from trying to cram too many words into a song where they don't really fit. Live some of the tracks will certainly test Erics vocals.

After a very long hiatus (25 years I imagine)
I'm listening to Supertramp's very first album.


Neither Hodgson or Davies wrote any of the lyrics although they shared singing duties. Hodgson actually played bass.


Richard Palmer played guitar and wrote the lyrics. He went onto write lyrics for King Crimson (among others).


The album is fairly simple melodically and has a melancholy feel to it but I'm absolutely loving it!


(In general I'm listening to a lot more music at the moment as I'm totally worn out with Brexit talk). Spotify is my saviour!

Was reminded of this a couple of week ago and finally got round to digging it out of the CD racks...great stuff, although only for me and possibly Kurtzy around these parts  ;)

I have it on good authority that Beth is a lovely lady, but I've always found her vocals a bit whiney....not heard that before, but will have a check out...

Currently listening to the Thunder acoustic thing....looking forward to Wednesday's show...blows my mind the first time I saw them was march-ish 1990....blimey.

We opened for Thunder once here in Rotterdam. They were great. Must have been 97-ish around..tour manager was a bit of a tw*t, wanted us to cut it short and hurry up because he wanted to catch the last ferry home.

Not quite mate; some of us do appreciate Portishead and Talk Talk  :P


Haven't played that CD for years, in fact just checked my racks and it's missing - jumps from Robin Gibb to Thea Gilmore and no, it's not after Rush either  ;)

Yes, complete with its 'Formerly of Talk Talk' transparent label. I have no idea when I last played it!


At least I could still find it though, in its place between The Hollies and Buddy Holly  ::)

They did a lot of great stuff after the first 2 - but IMO, nothing comes close to the magic they created with OOTSP and GGTN - the songs, mystery and aura they had around at that time was really something special.  The late 80's really heralded the start of some of the greatest rock music ever produced, I think.

Have had it for a couple of months thanks to Angrymetalguy.com
https://www.angrymetalguy.com/1914-the-blind-leading-the-blind-review/

1st world war obsessed band. It is a very heavy album, interspersed with small spoken and atmospheric passaged. The intro track of a crackly recording of a woman singing a war song is really eerie

I love this album

FHL is slightly less brilliant than those first 2, I'd say.  I got rid of my GGN vinyl in the great record purge of 1994  :-\   I kept OOTSP though - not sure why I kept one and not the other - I got rid of a tonne of vinyl that I had on CD...*facepalm*

That Mastiff album has turned out to be my first big seller. Surprising (to me) as it's the heaviest and most gnarly thing I've released, by far. Turns out it's not just me who likes the sound of a man going at this throat with razor blades over the sound of an aircraft taking off.

His subsequent out wasn't in the same league as "O" He really suffered after Alison Hannigan (?) left. her solo record was OK, but not great.. A real case of the sum of the parts being better than the parts...

Hi Rufus, I picked it up reissued in the GWR Records triplepack for £13 - none of which I'd previously heard.


Not totally blown away but it's definitely a decent Hawks release. I remember seeing them for the first time on the Sonic Attack tour,  buying Church of Hawkwind then Choose Your Masques and sort of drifting away until catching them live again 10 years ago.

Not sure if you visit the Angry Metal Guy web site, thats where I discovered Inter Arma.


Other great finds from there this weeke include:-


Wheel-Moving Backwards
Hath-of Rot and Ruin
Violet Cold-Kosmik
Latitudes-Part Island
Ketzer-Cloud Collider
Wormwitch-Heaven that Dwells Within


All of them really very good, very different, and just very


I'll check those out. I usually go onto Bandcamp and find the newest Metal. Inter Arma though I have known for a couple of years. The majestic Sky Burial was my first taste of Inter Arma.

Hath-Of Rot and ruin

Brilliant album, anyone who likes Opeth (proper Opeth!) will lap this up

The last track may even have Akefeldt and his legal team sharpening their pencils, sounds very Demon of the Fall to me!

Before that it was Ring Van Mobius - Past the Evening Sun. Norwegians who think it's 1972 and that they are Van der Graaf Crimson or King Generator, what could possibly be better?

I do, and I've found quite a few new bands to listen to.

Spirit Adrift was awesome, thanks for that one! This band can very well make it to my daily listening.
Black Sites I really liked the music, but I must say I struggled with the vocals. I'm not giving up just yet though. They wouldn't be the first band that have grown on me.
Hath wasn't really for me, a bit too much to the black side for me.
Wormwitch was also awesome, I got the occasional Opeth vibe. And some really great riffs!

Bottom line, two more bands to listen to (potentially three), which is always great ;)

Батюшка - Панихида
I know what this reads like - or actually I don't. This is the new album done by Krzysztof Drabikowski, the musical genius behind Batushka. The previous album 'Litourgyia' was brilliant - this is on the same level.
Beware, there is a 'new' (or 'fake') Batushka out there, led by the lead vocalist but the music is boring and not on par with this one.

To be found on Bandcamp, of course.

Epectase - Astres
French Black Metal, mixed in with proggy jazz influences. Sometimes a bit shoegazy / atmospheric and to my ears with a healthy dose of Voivod influences (the jazzy guitars).
It sounds like it was recorded in your moms basement, for maximum underground effect. The drummer has crappy timing skills up to the point I suspect him from doing it on purpose   :0) The voice / throat is used very little, but when it is, is very upfront on the mix.
In short: what's not to like? I love it!

As usual, Bandcamp is your friend.

The 11th Hour-Burden of Grief, and Lacrima Mortis

Incredibly heavy doom/metal/Sabbath/Candlemass style heaviness. Clean vocals, crazy heavy guitar sound!

And Mors Principium Est=Dawn of the 5th
Melo Death/Power Metal from Finland. Mix between At the Gates, Dark Tranquility and In Flames. But better!

Baroness - Gold & Grey
I really like it. I know there will be people complaining about the sound - but this is essentially just an artistic choice and a quite obvious one at that (it is quite heavily compressed and distorted at times). It is a kaleidoscope of an album, it has all the makings of a magnum opus to me. I believe this album will turn out to be a pivotal point in the bands' catalogue.
Bla-bla big words, I know, but that does not take away form the fact the song writing is top notch here. They have clearly moved away more and more from standards set in metal even though loud guitars are still present but the fuzz laden basslines and lively drums, that more often than not swirl around odd time signatures are far from what I'd call modern metal, or metal of the old for that matter. Sure there is Baroness as we know it (Borderlines most obviously) but most of the album is new territory for the band. I think this is what Baizley & Co was trying to achieve prematurely with Green & Yellow but failed to capture: a wide vision of what Baroness music can be: it finally lived up to its' full potential, not taking away from Red or Blue - these were early days masterpieces in itself (Blue is 10 years already!).
And that's saying a lot coming from an old metalhead...

Watching a couple of You Tube channels and happened upon an official full album stream of Yngwie's latest, Blue Lightning.

Not a blues album (it couldn't be that) but "bluesy", with a number of cover versions of standards like Foxey Lady, Purple Haze, Paint It Black  and While My Guitar..., a few original blues-rock numbers and an inevitable instrumental.

Has Yngwie reined things in, mellowed some, let that preternatural vibrato sing a lot more..?  Er, no.

Every track here is subject to the usual bombardment of zillion-note, neo-classical hemidemisemiquaver runs and arpeggios that have been keeping him in Ferraris for about the last 30 years.

The covers, loose and amorphous and merely rendered as backing tracks to the relentless uber-shred, should have been left well alone. Yngwie should not have done the vocals himself - he can't really sing. Yngwie should not have produced the album himself - it sounds like it was recorded via an iphone app.  It doesn't even sound as if he had a proper drummer, but used a cheap machine out of an Argos bargain basket - the sound of them is utterly hideous.

And yet; the chops this man has are still from a different planet. The picking hand of a hummingbird's wing; unteachable vibrato and legato; complete mastery of scales; and licks where the speed and dexterity at times defy belief.

Listening to this is like opening the bonnet of a clown's car and finding a Formula 1 engine underneath.

Part Rob Halford, part Ozzy. I don't listen to metal much these days, and when I do it's 99.9% classic, old school bands but first impressions played on Tidal, it is a very good album albeit the audio quality is lossy only.

Indeed the Sorcerer album is great, in a epic Metal type of way. Previous album In the Shadow of the Inverted Cross is worth listening to as well.

I have a CD by Marillion called The best of both worlds, which has one disc featuring Fish, and the other Hogarth. I have been playing it quite a lot at work on nights, and have been enjoying the Hogarth era disc. That said, it will never match up to the Fish days.

I never actually got around to buying the Clutching at straws album. Script for a jesters tear is a great album, whereas Fugazi and Misplaced Childhood are both terrific. Apart from everything by RUSH, Fugazi is my favourite album.

I would recommend it big man, especially with a remix available and an extra live Disc with a couple of tracks from Fugazi on it.
Clutching took me a while to "get", it came out at the time my music tastes went a little more extreme.

It's that time of year again folks...!!  8)

This year's Annual Summer Richard Marx Album is the follow-up to the chart-conquering masterpiece Repeat Offender, namely Rush Street.

First things first: Rush Street is not a patch on RO.  It is mostly slickly-produced filler of the kind that belongs wafting out of the speakers of some budget Miami Beach hotel's elevator. 

It's a rather uneven record, evinced by the fact that amongst its myriad of - admittedly top notch - session and guest musicians, we get Steve Lukather's beach body guitar on soft-rock tracks and the velvety tones of Luther Vandross backing smoother numbers.

Lukather's involvement renders RS at least a level heavier than RO, and in all honesty this is to the album's severe detriment; even to my acutely 80s calibrated sensibility, the punchier tracks sound more horribly dated with each passing year, each coming across as some kind of U-rated Motley Crue pastiche, the sex, drugs and debauchery of Vince Neil & co completely disregarded in favour of a hugely watered-down, soft-focus approach.  Streets Of Pain is possibly the most egregious example, not least because it has one Tommy Lee guesting on drums (also, trivia fans, on backing vocals is Dalbello).

But look: I didn't pick out Rush Street for the lameness of its weak tracks, or the passing quilty pleasures of its somewhat cheesy cuts.  I put it on because of four words, namely, "Take This Heart" and "Hazard", otherwise known as two of the best tracks Marx has ever written.

Fortunately, they arrive consecutively and that is probably not an accident.  Take This Heart is notable not just because it is an absolute stonewall banger of a pop-rock track, but also because it contains the best key change of all time in modern popular music.  Just listen to that transition between bridge and chorus; it's pure, exospheric genius that a million Ed Sheerans each trying a million chord changes wouldn't get anywhere near happening upon.

Hazard, well everyone knows that song, a staple of commercial radio playlists for almost thirty years now, in that respect surpassed in Marx's canon only by Right Here Waiting.

Put the top down and enjoy.  8)

The two new Opeth Tracks.

Started to get excited, as they sound a little more dynamic/exciting, and a little less like the amps are wrapped in wet cardboard.

But then I did a second listen and got bored.

Why did you do it Michael, why?

Would have honestly preferred them to split up, and him record this new stuff as a solo artist

I'm happy for it to be released under the Opeth banner. He's written nearly all the Opeth canon anyway, so he is Opeth.
I love Metal, so I like the Metal Opeth; I love Prog so I like the Prog Opeth - but not as much as the Metal Opeth.

I grew up a Queen fan, so I was used to one act producing a wide range of styles and I don't think Mikael has let the Quality control slip as badly as Rush did.

At last! Someone wants a recommend!

Im not into the really slow funeral stuff like Bellwitch, and it depends what you class as doom? I call Sabbath and Candlemass doom for example.

However, right now I would recommend:-
Morgion
The 11th Hour-Both albums brilliant
Altars of Grief-Iris
Black Reaper-Celestial Descension
Enferens-Thebleakness of...
Pallbearer
Sorceror-The crowning of the fire king

All worth a try, and have a look at www.angrymetalguy.com

Hi Bez,
             If you're a fan of Dolores's voice may I recommend the Blackheart Orchestra - 
Chrissy's voice is an amalgam of Dolores/Kate Bush/Bjork, amazing sounds from a duo 😉

They supported Hawkwind on their orchestral tour last year and have been invited back again for this year's 50th Anniversary gigs 👍

VDGG pawn hearts is so dark, it feels like a Cure or a Fields of the Nephilim (spelling) album. I also think Marillion Script for a jesters tear is a Goth album with its dark romantic lyrics and cold atmosphere.

Quote from: Nïckslïkk2112 on September 27, 2019, 23:13:43 pmAt this stage in their career Rush released Presto. Is it that dull?
Thats a great question!

At the time Presto nearly got me, as I got seduced by Show Don't Tell immediately, but then after a couple of listens through it just got very boring. I could easily have had another synth heavy album, but I do see why they moved on.

My problem with all the post-Growl Opeth is that I struggle to remember any hooks, tunes or memorable bits. While this may sound utterly bonkers, I find modern Opeth a "noise", which is incredibly difficult to qualify considering they used to be a Death Metal Band.

For example, take tracks like BWP, Deliverance, Bleak, Demon of the Fall, each has incredibly memorable sections, tunes, and hooks. I don't get any of that with the modern stuff. 

I understand why the proggies lap it up, lots of mellotron and Hammond organ, long songs, twiddly bits, clean vocals etc, but it's just a bit dull to my ears.

So, in answer to your question, I find it difficult to quantify if one dull thing is duller than another dull thing, but I certainly am going through the same loss of interest process for Opeth that I did with Rush. Thank goodness for back catalogues as they say

Post by: Gary L. Grape on September 30, 2019, 12:05:31 pm
I agree with the part about missing memorable sections, tunes and hooks. The thing I used to love about Opeth was the contrast between beautiful or haunting melodies and powerful or dark growled parts, and I miss all that. I do think that this new album has a bit more contrast than the previous post-growl albums, but only a little, and in general I think it's a forgettable album.

With all that said, I'm listening to it right now, to see if I can find some interesting features in there. Next up is the equally forgettable album that is Tool's Fear Inoculum.

Seems almost like yesterday when that Disc came out, didnt know anything about it then it suddenly dropped.

3 or 4 really killer tracks for me, which sounded awesome live on the Different Stages album, but too much filler for me, songs like Totem/Dog Years/limbo/carve away the stone/virtuality I cant even remember how they go

This was the first time I really noticed the words not fitting the tunes issue and sounding forced, presumably a result of the writing process happening in different rooms.

I have gone Insomnium mad. Discovered them last week, not listened to anything else since. 

Winters Gate (all 1 song!) and the new album Heart Like a Grave are excellent. Death Metal with Melody and hooks, some clean vocals, I love it!

If I hear a better song than Bright Morning Star this year I will be amazed.

Van Der Graaf Generator - World Record (Not up there with Godbluff or Pawn Hearts, but a good VDGG album nonetheless).
Steve Hackett - Voyage Of The Acolyte (Great album, all the songs are good. The opener 'Ace of Wands' is amazing. Good to hear Peter Gabriel's vocals too).
IQ - Resistance (New and just got this. First Disc so far. Hmm, not sure on first listen. Seems a bit samey, but maybe it'll grow with repeats).

New Wilderun Disc. It is amazing, I know a couple of people who should go for this at the very least (Simmers and Noppers)

Best album I have heard for a very, very long time.

For me, the direction Opeth should have gone in, and it really works

They are something of an acquired taste, and there's no doubt there is a lot of hype and cultish spiritual mystique that surrounds them, which I don't buy into, but there is no other band around at the moment who I would go to the effort and expense of stalking on a UK tour...if they ever actually deign to tour that is. 🙄

Michel Thomas Greek disc 10/12 is a bit like wading through treacle; I can see myself wearing out a couple of tracks trying to nail singular and collective gender pronouns and when to use them.

Jethro Tull - A Passion Play (again) (Steven Wilson Remix this time). This album has been unjustly slated. I didn't like it much on first listen either, but as time goes on with repeated plays, this is up there with 'Thick as a Brick' and 'Aqualung' IMO. I even love 'The Story Of The Hare Who Lost His Spectacles' lol - the associated video, which was screened on the original tour, is a hoot too.

  • Rush - Hold Your Fire (I've owned this LP for over 30 years and this is the first time I've played this copy all the way through, haha.)
:o You mean you didn't rush( ;D ) to lift the needle, after the first few bars of Tai Shan?

Haha, good one. HYF is my least favourite Rush album, so having a real turd on there makes no difference.

I suppose that's a thing about Vinyl, you tend to play the whole side, whatever the tracks are. Unlike digital formats where one can easily skip.

That's why I'm eternally grateful that HYF was the first Rush album I bought on CD :)

They're also easier to cob out of your car window...

Great choice. I like Moonmadness (many say it's their favourite Camel album), but I think Mirage and Snow Goose pip it. Despite the cringey joke I'm going to give Egg a play today. It's a tremendous start 'A visit to Newport Hospital', but loses it's way later on. Good album overall though. So far today:

Egg - The Polite Force
Return To Forever - Romantic Warrior (what amazing musicians these guys are, especially Al DiMeola on guitar).
Al DiMeola - Elegant Gypsy
Mahavishnu Orchestra - Birds of Fire

Geddy Lee - my favourite headache

Bought it on vinyl.  It really is much worse than I remember.  

The new Who record is good, though..

Today i have been mostly playing:

ELP - Brain Salad Surgery (bonkers, showing its age - still fun though)
Gösta Berlings Saga - Detta Har Hänt (fantastic intrumental only)
Bubu - Anabelas (Argentine Prog, whats not to love)
Can - Monster Movie (early Can, I prefer later stuff, this is OK though)
King Crimson - In The Wake Of Poseidon (good but not as good as In the Court...)
Kansas - Leftoverture (Immense rock album and a classic)
Judas Priest - Rocka Rolla (I love all the older Priest upto Killing Machine, even this one)
Nektar - A Tab in the Ocean (first play, very good even on first listen. A Floyd/Hawkwind/Yes cross is maybe a good description?)
Nucleus - We'll Talk About It Later (Jazzy jazz jazz/rock goodness. 'Nice')
