Maybe this band is considered "metal lite" - no idea.
Yes, very lite.

I hate Disturbed in general (mainly due to that ridiculous "uuuu-WA-WA-WA-WA" nonsense), but will admit that this is a pretty good cover.
I've always thought David Draiman has an amazing voice and if they didn't make poppy metal, i might actually enjoy it.

But yes, that cover is amazing.

Since we're just about at the end, thought I'd toss out my personal top 10 songs for 2019

#10 - At the Gates - "To Drink From the Night Itself". As close as they've come to capturing the old "Slaughter of the Soul" magic. While the rest of the album was so-so, this song kicks ass.


#9 - Eneferens - "Awake". Try and tell me this doesn't sound like old Opeth.


#8 - Anaal Nathrakh - "Forward". This song got some flack when it was released for literally using a machine gun for the blast beats. Screw that, it's a fantastically brutal tune about the horrors of WWI.


#7 - Amorphis - "The Bee". Amorphis can do no wrong in my book, and this was the best track off a very solid album.


#6 - Sentient Horror - "Enter Crypts Below". These guys basically feel like Edge of Sanity reborn. Which makes sense considering Dan Swano's production.


#5 - Tribulation - "Subterranea". Tribulation's mix of goth and death metal is absolutely brilliant. This honestly could have been any one of 5 songs from the Down Below album...it's truly fantastic.


#4 - Khemmis - "Isolation". The leap these guys made between albums 2 and 3 was astounding, and this grungy sing-along perfectly encapsulates their well-honed sound.


#3 - Sigh - "Hunters Not Horned". What it would sound like if Ian Anderson went utterly insane, basically.


#2 - Ghost - "Rats". Look, I get that Ghost is basically Scooby Doo chase music. I don't care, this song is brilliant...and the Cardinal Copia dance-off zombie video is hilariously awesome.


#1. Zeal & Ardor - "Row Row". Nothing even came close this year, honestly. Slave spirituals + black metal = brilliant. I've listened to it a hundred times, and Manuel Gagneux's delivery of the "We are the best of the bastards/And slaves to none" line gives me chills every damn time.


Honorable mention
- Tomb Mold - "Abysswalker"
- The Ocean - "Cambrian II: Eternal Recurrence"
- Gaerea - "Whispers"
- Bloodbath - "Fleischmann"
- Baring Teeth - "Abstracted Mind"
- Barren Earth - "The Living Fortress"
- Altars of Grief - "Desolation"
- Ihsahn - "One Less Enemy"
- Thy Catafalque - "Toltes"
- Ohgr - "Tricks"

Listening to this, drinking tequila on Tequila Friday, wiping away tears because my Irish blood loves tragic stories and my Lithuanian blood is telling me to keep drinking.

I would have thought those two roles would be reversed.

Yeah, Tequila Friday has been A Thing at our house for almost 20 years. Lately it has morphed into Tequila and Pizza Friday, but no pizza last night. But always tequila on Friday...but there will be pizza tonight. And Leftover Tequila. It's simple, really.

The rest of the album's pretty good. I would stay away from the official video, however.

Atrocity was announced last week for the 70K cruise. They've somehow never hit my radar before, and I"m really digging their brand of death/thrash. (video gets a little NSFW towards the end)

On this gloomy New England winter's day I'm listening to Max Richter's interpretation of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. His version of Spring is just the thing I needed for the moment.

Jonathan Coulton has launched a Kickstarter for an album project SOME GUYS.

It's an album of covers of sensitive 1970s male singer-songwriters (e.g. Gordon Lightfoot, Dan Fogelberg) done in completely faithful, imitative style, "70s soft-rock hits that sound exactly like the originals."

The video at the project site is definitely worth it.

Right now my my twenty-teens Playlist has the following bands on heavy rotation :

The Struts
Greta van Fleet
Dorothy
The Pretty Reckless
Florence + The Machine
Palma Violets*

Planning on adding Chvrches

* such a shame it appears as if they have disappeared, probably drugs as when I saw them live, it looked like they were heading down that path, and they've done nothing since in a few years.

I don't know the band, but maybe Wikipedia will interest you:
Following the release of Danger in the Club, there was a noted silence from the band on social media leading to speculation that the band had split up. This was confirmed in an interview by Matt Wilkinson with guitarist Sam Fryer on 11 July 2018. All the members of Palma Violets bar Alexander "Chilli" Jesson are currently in a new band called Gently Tender with Celia Archer of The Big Moon. Of the affair he noted "We didn't fall out or anything like that. We just changed as people. We were 18 when we started the band and everything is quite easy to get on the same page, write the same kind of music all the time. Whereas when you hit 24 after 5 years of touring, I think you just become different people and we naturally just moved on"

Ive listened to these two recently. These are our wedding songs. We got married at the courthouse then went to eat next door at our favorite little burger joint called The Spot. Its been there since 1936 or so.

They found out we had just got married and played these for us. We still have the cups labeled with the date from there. ...I have the cups :( Its always been 'we' :( now Im crying again. sigh.

Greta van Fleet
I have a 60 year old coworker who had seen them a bunch already and is now mad they've sold out. :lol: She is arena venue classic rock and pop country lady and now she's upset because GVF are everywhere and yet now completely inaccessible in the way she is accustomed to consuming their music.

Another small venue, less is more when it comes to the love of musical performance convert!

Somebody elsewhere posted this and I've been digging it. The more times I watch and listen the more boxes it checks for me.
