That is cool! Seems like a great atmosphere at that show, wish I'd been there bet it was awesome. I heard you haha! :) Thanks for the vid too ! Which is your fave Melvins ?

Np - Descendents - Milo Goes to College 

They've been great each time and ever since they've been playing The Ready Room over the last few years, the vibe has been awesome. Especially with Steven on bass. Those guys are having fun and the circle of energy it makes with the very happy to be there fans just makes it sweeter. Seeing them with Pinkus on second bass was unreal!

Favorite album is impossible to say. However, I will call out three I particularly champion.

Eggnog

Honky

and for those needing something fast and Heavy after those two tunes...

The Maggot

 

Nice to see The Descendents getting mentioned!

Sort of. It's on my evergrowing to-do list. I have listened few tracks, but haven't done the full album experience yet. Seems to be as solid as you would expect from them.

More so. It’s a black metal classic and far beyond my wildest hopes and expectations. 

NP: Mgla - ‘Exercises in Futility’

soon: Mayhem - ‘Daemon’

Aldo Nova- just random songs on youtube, some of it is great cheesy 80s hard rock, other songs are ballads, so I ignore them

I found this completely on accident on youtube, the cheesiest 80s videos ever. This is pure 80s guido rock. Think in between the Eye of the Tiger song and Scorpions. They must have spent a fortune on the music videos. 1 has a helicopter, another has a panther and an eye patch.

this 1 has a real panther and an eye patch, 1 of the guitarists kind of looks like Eddie Van Halen in the face and another guy in the video kind of looks like Udo

so cheesy, a helicopter and a lazer beam shooting out of a guitar

Aldo Nova was the next big thing for a while. 

Nothing cheesy about leopard skin jump suits and lasers in guitars. That’s what rock should be! ;)

NP: Rotting Christ select tracks.

Katatonia - ‘Lacquer’

The first track released from the new album ‘City Burials’.

It’s a very modern electronic song in the vein of ‘Unfurl’. No guitars or real drums. Interesting choice for first single, considering they’ve stated that there are some real rockers on the album. 

I think this is a soft track to get us ready for the big metal second single.

It grows after several listenings. I’ll share my full thoughts in the Katatonia forum when I grab a computer....

Damn, that´s what happens when you don´t follow the happenings of the musical world at all! Definitely need to go through the whole album asap! :)

I played it yesterday during a particularly frustrating afternoon in traffic.

I think it fair to say we await your reaction!

I never heard of him until accidentally finding him on youtube the other day. I love the rocking songs, not a fan of the ballads. To me its cheesy but I still like it. There's lots of cheesy things I like.

Did you see the other video with the panther? I really miss this kind of music and want more of it. I love the videos too. Can you recommend me some more obscure stuff like this? I definitely need a playlist of this kind of stuff. If you remember 80s songs about how hard they will rock you, born to rock, right to rock, I'm a sucker for those kind of songs. Aldo Nova doesn't have those exact kind of lyrics but it reminds me of that too.

To be honest i'm a lazy critic, not to mention i hate ripping albums or songs apart. Music to me is a feeling thing and analyzing it too much sometimes almost ruins the experience for me. I've had it playing while doing cooking and other tasks today, i really really enjoy it, which is as far as i will go with my analysis. 😊

Good enough for me!

The ripping Art apart thing just because one dislikes it is boring and old. It also reflects insecurity, to an extent.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
