    And Gar Samuelson is the best drummer they ever had. And Mega Dave was off his tits on drugs and was still spitting piss and vinegar over Metallica.

    Gig Last night:

    Venom Prison

    Kinda Meh, standard techy, beatdown death metal. Nothing unique or amazing interesting, but solid all the same. Wouldn't rush to see them or listen to them again.

    Power Trip

    Thought they were effin GREAT! So much fun, ok the songs are a bit samey, but they are so clear and tight, riffs are so tasty that it really does not matter.

    Code Orange

    Fuck....did I not like these turds. On record, I've found a few tracks I like,, they've even gone in my running playlist....but live, what a bunch of ballsacks, miserably try hard, zero fun, all aggro, all posing pure garbage, hated every loathesome second. And no matter how many spin kicks your bassist does, bands with singing drummers are weird to watch (unless they are Absu).

    One of the worst live experiences I've ever had, I was close to leaving.

    Trivium

    Liked them when I was a teen/twentysomething then didn't listen to them until recently, I thought they were excellent, really good fun, high energy, tight as fuck, pretty bloody heavy throughout. To be honest I can't help but like Matt Heafy, you can tell the band are so into it, crowd was amazing, so it was great. Absolutely will be a regular attendee at their shows from now, think they piss all over the likes of Machine Head.

    All in all, a tale of two gigs. Two miserable serious bands that really wore me out, and two high energy fun bands that saved it all from being a massively tiring night of try hard shenanigans.

    Omfg megadeth in June might be a rust in peace set! I need to get my butt in gear and get those tickets.

    Today has turned into a garden and alcohol day with rust in peace, countdown and youthansia on repeat. It's been amazing. I'm so happy and drunk.

    Praise the sun!

    All this talk of Megadeth and not one mention of SFSGSW? Pointless cover of Anarchy in the UK notwithstanding, it's obviously the best Megadeth album.

    I reckon everything from Killing Is My Business to Youthanasia is worthwhile.

    An utter fucking ordeal of an album. Total death desecration, zero fucks given Finnish filth.

    Honestly feel like throwing up after listening to this.

    Master Boot Record has released a new album which might appeal to those of you that like his sythesized/chip tune form of metal. Has some vocals this time round too...



    Master Boot Record - Direct Memory Access

    If you like your synthwave cinematic, Hollywood Burns' latest is smashing. Really enjoying this one.



    Hollywood Burns - Invaders

    The second episode of Pod Minutes to Cast Night (the Two Minutes to Late Night podcast) is out and its on Megadeth Super Collider.

    Basically each episode they listen to a record with a bad reputation and try to find the good in it. Episode 1 on St.Anger is very good.

    Listening to the new Ihsahn album, Ámr.

    Much in the same vein as Arktis, it's not really black metal, more prog metal. Lot more synth this time too. Like John Carpenter style analogue synths. Or the Transformers: The Movie soundtrack.

    The whole thing does sound quite eighties inflected, in a good way. Need to listen a few more times but on first listen I enjoy it.

    Good way of being eighties? Is there any other way of being eighties?

    Guns n Roses are quietly abandoning One in a Million. Presumably because it's massively racist.

    The actual music is alright

    It's not as good as Arktis IMO but is still a triumph like most of his discography. Look up some of his recent interviews about the approach to the album and views on metal and his history, interesting stuff. He's very intelligent.

    He still calls it Black btw.

    Also worth a listen, is Leprous. They have in the past effectively been Ihashn's backing band (think he's changed it up now). 'Coal' is a good album with some Ihsahn guest spots (try 'Contaminate Me') Their singer has this very melodramatic, multi octave thing. In turn he's on a few Ihsahn songs. Notably the first track on Eremita I'm sure is him. Don't expect lots of heaviness.

    I've been listening to Ámr a lot over the last few days since I got it. Like on repeat.

    I'm probably inclined to agree that Arktis is better, but I'm a sucker for analogue synth sounds.

    Regardless of what Ihsahn himself says, it's hard to really call it black metal. A couple of songs maybe fall into that category, but the album as a whole doesn't It might come from from the same emotional wellspring that inspires black metal, but it's seems daft to call it black metal.

    IIRC the Leprous singer did a fucking awesome job on the Arktis track 'Celestial Violence'.

    Tim Calvert of Forbidden and Nevermore passed away there at the end of April. Shit buzz, great player.

    Then he packed in music to become a pilot! Cool dude for sure, RIP.

    I'm enduring the morning after tinnitus from Machine Head in Southampton last night. No support act, just 2 1/2 hours of headline, and I think they managed to play something from every album (even Supercharger). Bloody good gig, but slightly marred by a mosh pit injury cutting the encore short (hope the guy that got flattened is ok...).

    Cracked on Amorphis on the way to work and got through most of it. Think what I've heard is great! Can't wait to see them next month.

    Amorphis really have nailed the perfect balance of catchy folk melodies and proper heaviness to take the edge off the cheese. Loving it!
