I checked it, I just haven't been home! Life is hectic... I'll download them tonight.
Did ASOP. I'm boiling of anger in regard to the mistreatment of this album. Seething hatred. -.-
Pessimist is a masterpiece, that was thrown in the bucket by the mix and mastering cunts.
Vocals on TCP are going to make the song unlistenable for me no matter what the production the rest of ASOP was plagued with production issues, but the shitty vocals and lyrics had nothing to do with production. It was just Anders failing to deliver. He made up for it on SOAPF though, so at least we got that before the recent descent into the darkest depths of whatever circle of hell In Flames currently reside in.
Whatever he's doing today with his clean vocals always comes off as grating. He's best when he does the gravelly-clean singing.
Also, The Chosen Pessimist is great.
TCP has some interesting moments, but the vocals are just a huge turn off for me. Plus it would have hugely benefited from being a couple of minutes shorter. I feel like it's stretched out to 7 minutes just to be "epic", even though the first five minutes are basically the same chords over and over. I still wouldn't particularly like it if it was shorter, but at 5 minutes or so I think it would be much improved.
I'm kinda blown away by the Clayman riffing. 100% of the tabs on internet are wrong. That's quite hilarious.
Also, Colony soon. @DE4life
This is literally 99% of text tabs. Some guitar pro tabs sound nice and accurate sometimes, because I think people who actually use it are more serious guitarists. I mainly learn songs by ear because of people tabbing shit wrong though.
Will read back, but now only hopped it to say what you probably seen as well: seems like that IF will release a cover of Alice In Chain's Down In The Hole. I always assumed that band had something to do with Alice Cooper. Oops. Pretty neat song, so I am happy for the news.
And I'm gonna say this in advance: as long as it's going to be fun (not talking about the theme of the song), I will have no complaints. Original tracks on studio records are meant to represent the band, but they can go as poppy or mainstream as they want if they cover something. I like the little snippet on facebook, and I really liked Everything Counts, so lesssss goooooo!
Also, here's hoping Christian Joe will not be accused of sexual harassment! That would break my heart.
I love that song. Hope the result is good. Opeth made a cover of aic, don't remember the song now, and it was a very good cover.
Just remembered, it was would.
I don't get the part about sexual harassment. Not all Christians like to abuse children.
Well, that and CJ isn't wealthy or famous enough for such an accusation to be of any benefit anyway.
So, I heard this earlier...
Speed from Soilwork on vocals, all cleans. I'm not sure about it. For all the talk about Cyhra having too many synths, these are way too prominent imo sounds like something straight out of 80's hair metal. The song is OK I guess. Artwork looks like they ripped it right from Come Clarity's booklet.
I also had no idea that Jesper and Alexi Laiho did guitars for Sinergy's debut album.
Maybe we shouldn't be surprised about the PM elements in Cyhra, Jesper has been involved in this and Hammerfall, so he's clearly a fan of that style to some degree.
That Gathering of Kings song is pretty good, heard it a couple weeks ago or whenever it was released. Everything Björn touches is good or great. It sounds kinda similar to his other band Night Flight Orchestra but with a more synth sound. I'm not surprised about IF probably covering Alice In Chains considering Anders is a huge fan of the band when the old singer was in it.
It was just a joke.
I know, but jokes might make sense, like mine
IF twitter account released another teaser today.
Its Wicked Game from Chris Isaak. That would be 2 cover songs and I guess they have 1 more which we could see the name on the video. Called "No Good". Any ideas?
Wtf was that?
Also heard the teaser from diah and it's not promising at all
Pretty sure they aren't going to be on the level of Everything Counts, World of Promises or Strong & Smart. But creatively will be better than anything they've released in the last few years, since they didn't write it.
For the record I love both of these covers.
I like this one
