Yep, Aka linked me to one of the song from the album and sounded good.
I've liked metal for about seven years now, and In Flames has always been my favorite band! Unlike many fans of IF, I actually like both the old and the new stuff. Their new album "Sounds of a playground fading" will be out 15. June, and from what I've heard to now, it's gonna be amazingly good!
Metallica just announced a coop with Lou Reed - any thoughts on that?
from the tiny bits I've just heard of the latter it could work... whatever "full length album" means in that context (oldies, new stuff, anyone?)
hmm....anything with Metallica sounds like insta-fail to me.
well, not being enthusiastic about each and every thing music related is one thing, having a generally bad attitude towards one is the other...
anyway, if it's anything like their performance for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th anniversary it's good enough for me - even though that specific part wasn't really metally, but as far as I understood it, it was mostlly Reed who wrote the songs and 'tallica gave a little influence and is playing them, so who knows which genre it will land in (fuck genres btw :P )
wondering... is this in your opinion too much Metal or no Metal at all?
If you like Judas Priest's British Steel then you'll dig just about every song on this little known classic:
So what do you guys think about Alternative Metal? I've heard a few songs that are considered AltMetal and really liked them and so I wanted to know more about the genre. Problem is that I don't even know what the genre is and I've had a hard time figuring it out. Could anyone like explain it to me and point out the differences between it and other metal sub-genres? Any cool bands?
this link, check it out. Personally speaking, I started with rock>heavy metal>death metal>doom & black metal. I never really got into or liked Alternative Metal. Back then, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Nirvana etc. were some popular names. Alice in Chains and Creed had some decent songs.
Looking at that article I only really saw two bands which I actually like, Deftones and Rage Against the Machine (I suppose Soundgarden as well).
As a happy symphonic metal fan, I've been obsessed over the previews for Epica's upcoming "Requiem for the Indifferent". Nightwish's album was also a big surprise, I really enjoyed it. Good sonisphere textures. Meanwhile, Epica is happily continuing their very quotable and anvilicious lyrics. Unfortunately, it's another whole month till their interesting songs are out, just their single is out right now.
The closest thing I like to symphonic metal is Children of Bodom, if you can consider them symphonic which some would say are more of a black metal band. Shrim.
Nah, don't think Children of Bodom is black, let alone symphonic or melodic. Dimmu Borgir is really great though, a decent melodic black metal. What about melodeath? Fond of Scar Symmetry and Dark Tranquility. And then there's the gods of prog, Dream Theater.
