A quarantine version of “Tank!”, the Cowboy Bebop theme song. 3...2...1...let’s jam.

After much deliberation, I think this is my favorite TV theme song ever. It very, very narrowly edges out “You Can’t Take the Sky From Me” on sheer catchiness alone.

The new Unleash the Archers dropped today, and the track Legacy is a true stunner. Brittany Slayes, well, slays all over this track, and the massive wall of sound from the guitar, drums, and keyboards after the surprising opening hook you immediately.

Indeed it did! I was very excited this morning and listened to it on my walk. I was also taken aback by "Legacy" - which is quite a cool song. I have heard some other blast beat/trance sounding stuff, but definitely enjoyed this sort of version in its more power metal friendly shell. I defintely think the album is good. Time will tell if I think it lives up to or surpasses Apex, but I definitely enjoyed it this morning.

KMFDM has a new album of dub/reggae remixes. Which may sound strange, but they first experimented with these sounds over 30 years ago. It opens with a version of Light that I really like. (But then, the original track's so great I don't think I've ever heard a bad remix of it, especially Andy Selway's from Rocks.) They're all slickly produced and real departures from the originals--this isn't your typical throwaway industrial remix album. Most of the remixes are of newer tracks though, which I have less of a connection with.

A Dub Against War, on the other hand:



It's amusing to hear one their heaviest anthems (A Drug Against War, 1993) redone this way. It turns a speed metal song more akin to Minstry into a laid back track throbbing with bass, with only a hint of the original beginning around the 04:20 mark.


Listening to this inspired me to revisit the Marco Trentacoste remix from Rocks (2016). It's a little overdone, but I like it. I'm not that familiar with Trentacoste, but there are some 90s-Reznor-esque guitars/effects and layering that really give it a different feel. I don't know if this is just Trentacoste's thing, or he was deliberately going for a tribute to 90s industrial metal. The riffs and passage beginning around 02:25 also really remind me of the Quake 2 soundtrack (coincidentally... Reznor scored the original Quake; he didn't have anything to do with the sequel).

“Also, Dude, ‘Sand People’ is not the preferred nomenclature; Tusken Raider, please.”
“Walter, this isn't a guy who built the moisture vaporators, here....”

So I picked this up based on all the glowing praise, and am shocked to find that...I’m actually quite liking it. Especially since it’s a level of ultra-cheese that I never thought would work for me.

I must be getting soft in my old age. ;)

I gave the first few tracks a try and just couldn't get into it. I dig the album cover though. I generally need my power metal with a harsher edge, and my extreme metal with a more melodic one. Their cover of Northwest Passage is great though. I must have saved that to my Spotify playlist when I was investigating them for a potential upcoming concert.


Hard to believe Dead When I Found Her's electro-industrial was produced in the last decade, and not 30 years ago in Vancouver. I posted one of their songs a long time ago (the amazing New Drugs), but I've started to delve deeper into their catalogue. (Really the one-man project of Michael Arthur Holloway.) Each track below reminds me of a different 80s/90s era of Skinny Puppy/Front Line Assembly; a little poppier. Some might consider DWIFH to be a rip-off, but there's very little music like this being created anymore and it's extremely high quality.

Speaking of ultra cheese, their new music video dropped today, and it's so absurd.

When DWIFH is on, they're amazing. That said, I find them to be split about 50/50 between amazing old-school'ish industrial and just flat-out boring.

The "Eyes on Backwards" album seems to be the most consistent. I love "Tantrums"

Yeah, I think I got bored the first time I tried to listen deeper, but this time I found some tracks that really clicked with me.

Tantrum sounds more like a FLA track to me. Not complaining, just commenting lol. The others remind me more of SP.

And if you were the one who recommended Aquilus to me, thanks! Finally checked them out last night, some really stunning stuff.

Yay!! "Griseus" is an absolutely incredible album. One of my favorites that I'd recommend to anyone.

Rumor is that he's supposed to be releasing a new double album this year, but it's been a few months since I've seen an update.

I see your Tank! and raise you "The Real Folk Blues."



I still listen to the OST from time to time

Oh man, coming back to KMFDM now as an adult, I think UAIOE is probably my favourite album of theirs. It's such an outlier, but it's so catchy when you acclimatize to it.

I am not the biggest Power Trip fan as I prefer less hardcore in my thrash, but I certainly liked the song "Hornet's Nest". I was certainly sorry to read about him dying even though I might prefer them with a different vocalist. He was way too young.

I knew the new Enslaved album was going to go in some different directions, but I never expected psychedelic synth pop to be one of them.

That said, I...kinda love it.
