a hoy hoy what album are you picking up?

Torche should appeal to all pop fans. The band themselves label it "stoner pop" or "sludge pop".

I might read about it first but 36 looks too great to shy away from.

I cant find any pics of the deluxe versions of Earth or Colour Haze. Which is a shame as they're really nice.

The Colour Haze gatefold was a sleeve like a hard backed book, inside it was like a photo book. Really really nice. I don't have a cam or I would take photos. Same with the Earth vinyl.

"Colour Haze’s “All” lives up to its name. It seems to capture practically “All” of Colour Haze’s reach and breadth in one single amazing disc. Each album they have released has been, to me, a cause of celebration. But this one is a revelation—never before have they ever packed so much range into an album, and such a superb blend of studio precision and free flowing abandon. This album adds even more psychedelia (was that possible?) to the mix, along with the most effective set of shorter songs they’ve ever released."

EARTH - "THE BEES MADE HONEY IN THE LION'S SKULL"
sunn90 CD&2XLP

Earth's latest incarnation will be available FEBRUARY 2008. After refaceting some old gems for greater illumination on "Hibernaculum". The band returns once again to it's continuing evolution. Where "Hex" reveled in dark satanic twang and austere american beauty, "The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull" finds Dylan Carlson and the band growing into a harder, more rock, american Gospel and impovisitory direction framed by truly psychedelic production and blazing guitar sounds.

Earth shows it's affinity with a nod to the best elements of the more adventurous San Francisco bands of the late 60's and 70's, and the more spiritually aware and exciting forms of Jazz-Rock from the same era. This is no nostalgia trip but a thoroughly inspired and original metamorphosis. Earth is also very honored to be joined on this record for three songs by legendary and virtuoso guitarist BILL FRISELL (doing some of his most fuzzed out playing in years!) .

Bill Frisell adds a brilliant texture and counterpoint to the scintillating and inspired riffs of Dylan Carlson and the band. Adrienne Davies joins again on drums lending a classic and steady feel to the proceedings. Steve Moore also returns adding heavy hammond organ and his intense jazz inspired piano playing. Live Bassist Don McGreevy also makes his full length Earth debut on this record.

Earth will begin touring throughout the world when the album is released, Australia, Europe and a full US campaign and on from there. The new songs are equally compelling live where EARTH takes the vehicles and expand and explore them for further musical and meditative exploration. Enjoy "The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull".

"From Strength, sweetness. From darkness, Light, The bees made honey in the Lion's Skull"

1. Omens And Portents I : The Driver (mp3)
2. Rise To Glory
3. Miami Morning Coming Down II (Shine)
4. Engine Of Ruin
5. Omens And Portents II: Carrion Crow
6. Hung From The Moon
7. The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull

Dylan Carlson: Electric Guitars and Amplifiers Adrienne Davies: Drums and Percussion Steve Moore: Acoustic Grand Piano and Wurlitzer Electric Piano, Hammond Organ Don Mcgreevy: Electric Bass and Acoustic Upright Bass

Songs One, Four, Five Featuring: Bill Frisell: Electric Guitar and Amplifier

So even if you dont like Metal, you might still like Earth

I had no idea Frisell played on an Earth album TBH. Will get for certain.

Everything I have downloaded so far is really good. Why did I never hear Caina before? And Torche indeed seems as good as "Foo Fighters in Southern Lord jeans" made them sound. (Actually, they remind me of Sunny Day Real Estate at times.)

(Had Opeth and Meshuggah before, liked both but thought both bands had done better, as my question upthread might have suggested.)

Sundar, Sunday, 25 January 2009 01:56 (5 years ago) Permalink

But, in the case of Meshuggah, it might be that I just really like "I".

― steampig67,

I think Scott feels your pain. Didn't he say he couldn't keep up with new music as he had lots of old but great stuff to catch up on?

OK, one more stats thing. After a little more experimenting, I've come up with a way to calculate Kvltosis (a statistical measure of cultishness) from the poll data itself, basically by retabulating it with votes inversely weighted by voter-centricity. That is, the farther from the consensus a voter was, the more cultishness their votes represent. So here's the ranking of albums that got 3 or more votes, by cultishness.

1 - 0.683 - 54 - 3 - Trinacria - Travel Now Journey Infinitely
2 - 0.582 - 54 - 3 - Graveyard - Graveyard

73 - 0.28 - 42 - 4 - Motorhead - Motorizer

Normally I'd expect the poll winner to be the least cultish album, but since in this poll nearly everybody voted for it, it comes out in the middle almost by definition.

Maybe Glenn can run some stats comparing, but I'd assume the Decibel list was closest to ours.

rolling autogoon seems to nay say the idea, and given a bit of thought, I don't think it would be worth it this late, after so many lists, and people are warn out on 2008 lists etc.. Next year I will though.

Just check out that ABN record and the Guilty Simpson and you're set, really.

well they still said they would contribute a list, and im sure those who dont post on that thread would contribute too. That's what happened with this poll, a lot of the contributors werent rolling metal thread posters. Some were lurkers who i dont know on ilx. So this kind of email poll does get a decent turn out. 30 was more than I expected. A rap poll would get a lot more i reckon.
You should give it a go, it will help get people discovering stuff they wouldnt always know about. As far as I can see only a few of the usual suspects will get in the ilx poll if P&J is anything to go by.
I'd say have a go doing a rap poll!

Ok, fuck it. Tomorrow I'll start it up.

Metal Edge has 29 things that are in our top 100. Decibel and Terrorizer each have 25. Kerrang has 5.

glenn mcdonald, Monday, 26 January 2009 18:36 (5 years ago) Permalink

Interesting. Metal Edge has really changed since Phil took over as editor then. (As I said before Metal Edge isn't available in Smiths anymore despite it always having been until a year or so ago).

Not surprised at the lack of Kerrang stuff.

What about the top 50? How many are in that?

Metal Edge has 29 things in common because nearly all the writers for that magazine post here.

Well, Phil didn't vote as he said he forgot, I know you write for it but who else? (and don't you all write for Decibel too?) I only know of one Terrorizer writer here (who voted). Does Stevie Chick still write for Kerrang? (not that he voted as far as i'm aware)

Metal Edge, Decibel and Terrorizer each have a 21-allbum overlap with this poll's top 50. Terrorizer overlaps 15 with this poll's top 25, the other two 14.

thanks for that Glenn!! Very interesting.
Going to give this Cynic album a spin, it's on spotify. Quite handy! If you're on spotify then check out the albums from our poll that are on it(not licensed to usa/canada yet im afraid)

Which ones are on it (if you already know it saves me doing 100 searches)?

onimo, Monday, 26 January 2009 21:34 (5 years ago) Permalink

I haven't looked. I just remembered Ned, I think it was saying, Cynic were a bit proggy. I'm surprised tho, no death metal at all. It's definitely prog metal with clean singing. Not what I expected at all.
