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.
I’ve been a long time fan of Chimaira, since 2003 in fact. They kickstarted a burn in my heart for faster, heavier music with incredible solos and great riffs. The music was magical, the lyrics were perfect and the overall feeling I got while listening to Chimaira back then was sublime.
