Dark Century – “Murder Motel”. Decent death metal with aggressive mentality throughout and cheesy lyrics. Vocals aren’t bad but don’t pay attention to what he is saying. Other than the elementary lyrics that you shouldn’t take seriously, the band reminds me of Exhumed in a way. 3 out of 5
I hate to jump the gun on this as only one source is making the report but Styleweekly reports that David Brockie was found in his apartment by his roommates Sunday evening and says close ‘numerous sources’ gave them the info.
“Roommates found Brockie’s body at his home Sunday evening, with friends and others posting condolences and remembrances across Facebook late into Monday morning. “I wish it was a joke,” says former band member Chris Bopst, a music writer for Style. “Everyone is in shock.”"
As you’ve heard from this past week, Angela Gossow said “SEE YA!” to being a front woman for Arch Enemy and to ’enter a different phase in my life, be with my family and pursue other interests.’ My wife pointed out a good theory: She had a baby and just wants to be home with the child. I think that is a good reason to quit a band. Yet, even with that said, she will still manage the band and possibly still be a ‘voice’ for them in a PR sense, even though The Agonist’s Alissa White-Gluz has been chosen to take the spot and then part ways with her band. Whoa, so who took Alissa’s spot? A young lady named Vicky Psarakis. Now that the rosters have changed, let’s listen to what these new bands sound like. Starting with The Agonist.
From here on out, until I get bored of using it, I will post my top albums I listened to over the past week. I will always post these on Sunday nights. Without further ado, here is the top (19) albums of the week.
Tennessee deathcore champions known as Whitechapel have released a simple yet crushing track called “The Saw is the Law”, referring to the saw blade that they use which is another iteration of the circle and stars used on the Tennessee flag. Is the song catchy? Yes. Does it prove that Phil Bozeman still has phenomenal vocal prowess? Yes. Does the band experiment or do they just fall into their own sound that they have rinsed and repeated since “This Is Exile”…..well…that’s for you to decide.
When we were asked by the NFL and Bruno to play our song Give It Away at the Super Bowl, it was made clear to us that the vocals would be live, but the bass, drums, and guitar would be pre-recorded. I understand the NFL’s stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage, there a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound for the folks watching in the stadium and the t.v. viewers. There was not any room for argument on this, the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period.
Just like the headline says! I think this is pretty awesome. Also, I want that jersey! Amon Amarth are currently on tour with Enslaved and Skeletonwitch here in the US. Have you seen them yet? Are you going to see them?
