Ahh ok, never read that either.

I was complaining in the Sandbox how YOB was skipping the entire midwest for their Tool tour. Fortunately they announced some headlining dates, including not only Chicago at the Empty Bottle, but my old hometown Dubuque! Yes, the long-suffering city that somehow gets singled out when someone wants to mention a shitty Midwestern city that no one cares about, most recently in the Love Goes To Buildings On Fire book.

Graveyard are also avoiding the midwest this month, though openers Radio Moscow are coming to Chicago just before the tour.

i noticed that they were playing at the EB later this month, was thinking about going but kinda depends on the day of the week

La Lechera, Thursday, 5 January 2012 18:35 (six years ago) Permalink

debating the drive to Austin to finally see YOB.

sorry that was boring and superfluous

let me offer some interesting info

i went to see this (pretty awesome) metal supergroup thing at the MCA a week or so ago, and it was great (aside from the barely credited but integral to the performance female string section), but the real news related to the incident from last year during which it was suggested that i go outside and get some fresh air because my feathers were ruffled due to a tasteless rape joke -- jef/leviathan dude was the designated drummer for this ensemble, and he didn't come out until maybe 2/3 of the way through the song (as planned, i'm sure)

then he started just BANGING on the drums, and the conductor (jr robinson) went over to talk to him like hey cool it dude, and he cooled it a little. then he went right back to banging at top volume. another little talk. then he threw his drumsticks behind him and sulked for the rest of the show.

everyone else was super professional, and the harmonium dude totally stole the show, but this guy came off like a giant baby at an art museum. ha.

it's not a zing, he spends a lot of his time actively and by his own admission writing blog posts in 'the Carles voice'

Really good album I totally missed last year: Astrohenge II by Astrohenge. Instrumental, progressive death/doom metal.

First spam of the new year! Drunken skate punk classic:

One month till my speech in Berlin - time to start seriously overdosing on 80s German thrash. Currently listening to Living Death's Vengeance of Hell, which is OK.

Hellbound has its top Canadian albums of 2011 up. It's always one of my personal favourite polls to participate in. It was a very good year for heavy music here.

A. Begrand, Monday, 9 January 2012 05:14 (six years ago) Permalink

Holy hell, the Liberteer album is awesome.

Simon H., Monday, 9 January 2012 06:16 (six years ago) Permalink

Shit Simon H... I just came here to say exactly the same thing. I just had a very satisfying first listen to that.

Doran, Tuesday, 10 January 2012 00:00 (six years ago) Permalink

Yeah, that one seems to be the grind record for people who don't normally like grind and also the people that do.

holy shit nightwish released an album last year? i have lost track of time

Slayer day of I'll Be Your Mirror in London is looking more and more like the greatest day of a festival ever: SLAYARGH! Wolves In The Throne Room, Melvins, Yob, Sleep. And there's more Yob news coming tomorrow apparently.

Doran, Tuesday, 10 January 2012 20:04 (six years ago) Permalink

you have time to listen to it and vote for it along with lulu and 8 others markers.

as does rockapads if he finds his way here

i listened to so little new metal last year -- i couldn't vote

markers, Tuesday, 10 January 2012 20:45 (six years ago) Permalink

i thought the same but in the end there were at least 20 metal albums i was able to vote for

they accumulate

Mordy, Tuesday, 10 January 2012 22:22 (six years ago) Permalink

and you have til sunday to listen to the spotify playlist and vote

As Adrien mentioned above, the Christian Mistress is great. No curveballs thrown, just more of exactly what they do so well.

jon /via/ chi 2.0, Thursday, 12 January 2012 21:25 (six years ago) Permalink

Yeah, no real changes, just better produced. "Haunted Hunted" is the one track I keep going back to.

Meanwhile the Wizard Rifle album is a total, indescribable blast.

A. Begrand, Thursday, 12 January 2012 21:53 (six years ago) Permalink

Wow, the Guardian is embracing metal at the moment:

need to hear the new Christian Mistress

the show I was doing for them in March has apparently been pulled as they're re-routing their tour :(

as no-one's mentioned the awesome Loincloth album yet I hereby break my normal habit and link to my own review of it

tumblr white's secret kool-aid drinker (DJ Mencap), Friday, 13 January 2012 11:29 (six years ago) Permalink

Sunday morning new-download audition results: Lyra and I concur that Revilement and Saturnian Mist are, as she put it, "a little bit terrible", although she was into Saturnian Mist until the guy started shouting. Lacuna Coil survived for later listening in its entirety, although "Losing My Religion" didn't impress us much (but it got me trying to explain the concept of losing your religion to a 4.5-year-old when we'd had only half a cup of coffee between us, so that's something). She wasn't much into Syven, but I was. We both provisionally endorse Cardamon, although I'm not as sure as L is that her mother would like them, too.

That concludes the metal portion, as we also have to catch up on the last two Simple Minds albums, as I've discover I forgot about them...

Hey, vote in the damn poll if you haven't already. Phil, Chuck, JD, everybody. What other poll gives you 50 votes?

they didn't but they're all welcome to comment on the albums here
THE ILM METAL POLL 2011 RESULTS (All lurkers/non metalheads welcome to join in!)

hope everyone comes and joins the fun. Everyones welcome to discuss the albums.

only listened to the first first songs in the car so far but on the basis of those first few, fucking A this new one by RAM is tremendous! It sounds kinda like earlier Judas Priest crossed something more proggy - not epic prog just sorta spacey structures - fucking great so far

unlistenable in philly (underrated aerosmith bootlegs I have owned), Monday, 16 January 2012 02:12 (six years ago) Permalink

Okay - immediately on the "Need to listen" list. Thanks!

Whiney vs. (BradNelson), Monday, 16 January 2012 02:32 (six years ago) Permalink

Hmm, this new Lacuna Coil isn't bad. Some of the songs still have their trademark random-note-progression "melody"-writing style, but at least a few seemed genuinely catchy to me on first listen, like they used to!

But then, you can download the Cardamon album, Sun as Never, from their website for free.

glenn mcdonald, Monday, 16 January 2012 05:08 (six years ago) Permalink

The Lacuna Coil is better than the last album for sure. But wow, is that Linkin Park-ification of "Losing my Religion" ever awful. It's always neat to see European metal bands unironically cover mainstream pop tunes, something American bands would never do, but they often do it so straight-faced and by the book that they lose all nuance.

A. Begrand, Monday, 16 January 2012 07:08 (six years ago) Permalink

I'm loving the new Woods of Ypres record, and it makes me angry that this is the last work we'll have from David Gold.

Best record out of the four 2012 releases I've heard thus far.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 16 January 2012 20:29 (six years ago) Permalink

I love the album, it's so much more cohesive than Woods IV, which was pretty great in its own right. David's lyrics could be corny as hell, but they had a way of getting to me, and some of the sadder songs here pack a bigger punch now unfortunately.

I'm trying to see if I can post the full unexpurgated interview I did in December at MSN. It just might have been his last, and it's pretty revealing.

A. Begrand, Monday, 16 January 2012 21:06 (six years ago) Permalink

I'd love to read it so I hope you get the right permissions to make it happen.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 16 January 2012 21:08 (six years ago) Permalink

It'll either go up at MSN or Terrorizer. I'm sort of waiting for the Terrorizer issue to come out, just to be polite.

A. Begrand, Monday, 16 January 2012 21:11 (six years ago) Permalink

Saw Thou, The Body and Kowloon Walled City last night... epic heavy destruction.
Still can't figure out what the hell the guitarist/singer from The Body was playing through but it rattled my bowels a bit it was so low and thick...
