Saw someone mentioned The Gorillaz a while ago. I like a few Gorillaz songs. Odd, yet fun and catchy. Definitely different than anything I usually listen to, and I give 'em props for that.

Can I just take a moment here to profess my love for a certain artist

 

I think it started back in 2010/11. We were in the car on the way home from a visit to our grandparents, and I was looking through dad's album collection to see if I could find anything interesting.

 

The album that caught my eye was one called "Sailing to Philadelphia"

 

So I popped it in and picked the title track of "Sailing to Philadelphia", and I really enjoyed it, but didn't think it was anything extraordinary, but I liked it enough that I decided to go through the album from beginning to end.

 

And that's where I heard the first Mark Knopfler song I ever grew to love.

 

"What It Is" had fantastic guitar play, a lovely beat, good vocals, and exquisite and well thought out lyrics. I instantly fell in love with it, and wanted to find more of his work.

 

My dad, already a huge Knopfler fan, introduced me both to his extensive solo work, and his work in the days of Dire Straits. Around every corner I'd find a new song that I absolutely loved: Sultans of Swing, Boom, Like That, Speedway at Nazareth, Tunnel of Love, Brothers in Arms, Quality Shoe, the list goes on and on.

 

Since then, no musician has been able to mezmerize me the way Mark Knopfler does. Just the way he plays the guitar is magic to my ears, the truly brilliant way he manages to bring me across the emotional spectrum, with a wide variety of musical styles and lyrical skills at his disposal.

 

From Rock, to Country, to Folk, to Blues, Knopfler does it all with pinpoint expertise and unparalelled passion and effort put into his music.

 

Truly a rare man is he, Viva Knopfler.

So, apparently Ian Anderson has a new album set to come out in the second week of April. Details are sketchy at this point, though it seems to be confirmed as an Ian Anderson album, not a Jethro Tull one, which is a bit of a shame in a way. Still, the word 'metal' has been thrown around once or twice by the man himself in reference to the project (along with 'folk' and just 'rock'), but I'll believe that detail when I hear it.

I rather doubt that Ian Anderson would have referred to work along those lines as metal - he seems to value a certain degree of precision in communication, so that sort of distinction would have been made.

I suppose this would be the best place to bring this up, so here goes.

 

Any particular opinions here on Todd in the Shadows? Personally I quite enjoy his reviews, his "One Hit Wonderland" series in particular, it's thanks to him that I discovered the recent addition to my music library, The Proclaimers.

so my 2013 Album of the Year, Seattle alternative hip-hop artist Sadistik's phenomenal sophomore album Flowers for My Father, is available to download for free from the Fake Four label Bandcamp today only.

 

I encourage everybody to check it out, regardless of your feelings on the genre. it's an incredible, beautiful piece of work and one of the realest and most emotional albums I've ever heard.

I'm really into electronic music and anime soundtracks, so my favorite album of 2013 would definitely have to be the Kill La Kill soundtrack. It's composed by Hiroyuki Sawano, who did the Attack on Titan, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, and Blue Exorcist soundtracks, amongst others. It's beautifully made.

The Cure have officially announced that the album they recorded simultaneously to 2008's 4:13 Dream will finally be released within the next few months.

 

the tentative title is 4:14 Scream and it's the second half of the double album they planned all along, with 4:13 Dream being the "light", poppier side and this new one being the "dark" side more reminiscent of albums like Disintegration.

That's cool, I'll definitely be checking that out.

 

What albums is everyone looking forward to this year? I haven't really been keeping up with what's set to come out in 2014.

So far I'm looking forward to the new Devin Townsend, Vallenfyre, Mastodon, Opeth, Clan of Xymox and Judas Priest.

I'm looking forward to 4:14 Scream by The Cure, At War with Reality by At the Gates, La Gárgola by Chevelle, and the currently-untitled new albums by The Agony Scene, Machinae Supremacy, In Flames, Mastodon, The Smashing Pumpkins, Opeth, Enter Shikari, and The Birthday Massacre.

 

also curious to check out Vallenfyre's new one because Kurt Ballou is producing it, and there have been rumors of new albums by Paradise Lost, Social Distortion, and Gojira. I'm hoping for (but not counting on) new albums by Katatonia, M83, Converge, Deftones, and Meshuggah among others.

 

...

 

admittedly, I'm also kind of curious for the new Slipknot album as well.

Haven't heard the rumours about Paradise Lost, but from what I know they only started writing the next album after the last tour, so it's very unlikely we'll see it this year. They've been pretty busy with the 25th anniversary tour, plus Greg and Adrian are doing the Vallenfyre album (and Adrian is also with At The Gates).

 

I'll definitely be checking out the new At The Gates and probably The Birthday Massacre as well.

Chino Moreno said in an interview that Deftones will be taking the rest of the year off and won't begin writing new music until early 2015. so much for the possibility of a new album this year, unless they finally release Eros.

 

update: Chino has confirmed that the interview, while released this month, was actually done sometime in 2013. he further confirmed that Deftones will be writing and recording new material for release either late this year or early next.

I finally listened to Nine Inch Nails' album Hesitation Marks the other day. It's the only Nine Inch Nails album I've listened to, so I can't say how good it is relative to the rest of NIN's discography, but I think it's a sweet album on its own.

in memory of Chi Cheng, who passed away one year ago today, Deftones have released a song from the shelved album Eros called "Smile". it's a pretty incredible song, makes me hope even more that they'll release the album at some point.

 

RIP Chi.

Seems like a good time to ask for everyone's favourite albums this year so far.

 

My favourite is still Ghouleh by Starofash which is a fantastic art pop/neoclassical darkwave album that I'm really hoping will get a physical release eventually. So far it's only available on her bandcamp.

 

Other great releases have been Casualties of Cool from Devin Townsend's new project, Splinters by Vallenfyre, The Satanist by Behemoth, Longhena by Gridlink, Xenon by Mechina and Oi Magoi by Hail Spirit Noir.

 

Matters of Mind, Body and Soul by Clan of Xymox, The Joy of Motion by Animals as Leaders and Shogunate Macabre by Whispered aren't too shabby either.

not sure whether to talk about them here or in the metal topic since they've always struck me as leaning more toward the hardcore side of metalcore, but Every Time I Die released a new song, "Thirst", and the details of their upcoming album From Parts Unknown a few weeks ago.

 

song slays, as expected, and hearing Kurt Ballou's production applied to Every Time I Die is like a dream come true. also the album art is absolutely glorious and probably my favorite of theirs so far.

 

 

 

on an unrelated note, I downloaded Whenever, If Ever by The World Is a Beautiful Place a few weeks back when it was free on Bandcamp and I finally got around to giving it a listen. I like it, pretty sweet album but I'll be honest and say that the vocals are grating at times and overall I don't find it to be near as amazing as people are making it out to be. maybe it'll grow on me and I'll "get" the hype eventually.

Do any of you know the feeling of listening to a song over and over again, trying to decide whether or not you like it, struggling to make sense of it?

If you listen to it over and over again, you probably like it.

new Death Grips album (well, half an album) dropped outta nowhere and it is legiiit, solid as heck and better than Government Plates


also, I've given Whenever, If Ever a couple more listens and as predicted it has grown on me and so have the vocals

 

 

 

edit: Weezer have announced a new album, apparently titled Everything Will Be Alright in the End. it's being produced by Rick Ocasek, who produced the blue and green albums, plus Hurley was great so I'm cautiously optimistic.

 

 

 

edit 2: new Every Time I Die album has apparently leaked and the response I'm seeing so far is absolutely MASSIVELY positive, p much everyone is calling it ETID's best album and an Album of the Year contender, I even saw one guy call it "Every Time I Die's Jane Doe". so now I'm pretty much amped

not sure whether to talk about them here or in the metal topic since they've always struck me as leaning more toward the hardcore side of metalcore, but Every Time I Die released a new song, "Thirst", and the details of their upcoming album From Parts Unknown a few weeks ago.
 
song slays, as expected, and hearing Kurt Ballou's production applied to Every Time I Die is like a dream come true. also the album art is absolutely glorious and probably my favorite of theirs so far.

I haven't heard it yet, I'm waiting for the album to drop so I can go in blind and have my mind blown apart

I also heard Brian Fallon is appearing on it and I'm a huge Brian Fallon fanboy so that's amazing also


in reply to the whenever if ever part: I heard Picture Of A Tree That Doesn't Look Okay and thought rest of the album would be equally amazing so I kinda feel the same

but I feel like it was worth it anyway because picture of a tree is exceptionally good

that part when it reaches the crescendo and the gang vocals come in ("WHERE DO THE ECHOES FROOOM THE ECHOES GOOOOOO")

the first time I heard that was almost a religious experience

been diggin the heck outta The Austerity Program's new album Beyond Calculation, so much that it may end up on my year end list

 

great combination of noise rock, old school post-hardcore, industrial, and metal from a band that used to be on Hydra Head Records

 

also it's free on their bandcamp

The new album by Fire! Orchestra - Enter - is phenomenal. Experimental big band/vocal jazz/free jazz at pretty much its finest. I might actually like it even more than Exit from last year, and it's close to overtaking Starofash's Ghouleh as my album of the year so far.
