Esquivel! - Mucha Muchacha
Love that dude's music.
Is she still around?
Listening to some Mastodon song from their latest album while standing in front of the mirror and doing scary faces and holding my hand like a claw and growling a bit.
I saw them live yesterday when I went to a ROCK FESTIVAL, this happen:
- Mastodon came on first. Never heard them before. They rocked.
- Then Lamb of God came on. Never heard them before. Didn't like them as much as Mastodon, but the leadsinger had a wonderfull contact with the audience and took every opportunity to demonstrate his proficiency in Finnish swearwords. Which of course everyone liked.
- Then Machine Head came on. Didn't like them. Then their guitarist Phil passed out and I liked them a bit more.
- Next up was Linkin Park, my friends and I got as close to the stage as possible and moshed out big time because we like weak ass pussyshit like LP but not real MANBANDS like Machine Head.
- Lastly, Metallica. By this point the place was packed with about 50 000 people aaaaaand... it was pretty nice. Yeah!
Lamb of God are overrated.
Well the first song from The Resistance by MUSE is kind of out.
United States of Eurasia
Pretty underwhelmed at first, but it's slowly growing on me. They're about as far away from the ol' days of Hullabaloo as possible now (Recess was fucking brilliant), which is a bit disappointing. But I was a fan of Black Holes & Revelations and this happier phase that they're going thru so this isn't too much of a drastic change from that.
So are Arch enemy, Studioforce, etc.
The difference is Lamb of God deserve the attention they get.
(also I realise that doesn't make them less overrated but dammit I like thier music)
I suspect most of Arch Enemy's popularity is that the singer is a chick. I mean, you can't tell just by listening to her because her growling vocals are pretty deep, but the band itself is pretty fucking generic.
Queens of the Stone Age - Skin on skin.
I don't listen to obscure bands. Fuck off.
Dune - So Beautiful
Pretty lame lyrics, but a nice breakbeat and I love her voice.
I also have an album with cover songs accompanied with classical music from them and that's one of my favorite CDs I ever bought.
Yeah, I don't get Lamb of God either. They're not bad per se, I just don't understand what makes them any more special than Static-X, As I Lay Dying, or any million of those other Killswitch Engage spawned bands...
Portishead - Only You
I have no idea where this one came from, but I somehow found it one day.
Creepy in an awesome way.
A lot of people commented on the lyrics, but honestly I've never listened to Muse for their lyrics. They were decent back in Showbiz but they're purposefully insane now.

Loving Green Carnation; specifically the (somewhat) epic track 9-29-045, shown below on youtube in all three parts.
I urge you to listen/watch this if you love good music. Trust me.
Green Carnation fucking own. I'm a big fan of Light of Day, Day of Darkness, which was my first introduction to the band. Pity they broke up.
Nine Inch Nails & Deftones - Matrix soundtrack
One of the best!
Only good thing Trent Reznor ever did was the Quake soundtrack.
And I thought it was the worst track he ever did. Different opinions FTW!
The difference is you are more right in this than him.
Bullshit. NIN is painfully overrated, but I might find Trent Reznor's music tolerable if he wouldn't sing.
I'm listening to Enjoy the Silence(Depeche Mode Cover) by Lacuna Coil.
Having a listen to Karmacode for the first time, it's pretty good.

I've heard enough death metal bands to tell you that I really can't differentiate Arch Enemy from at least 50% of the rest.
someone Stitchmost of commchat shits on me, I'm indifferent to Radiohead when it comes to their music, it's not for me but I don't hate it)
