  1. I've been on my annual massive Aphex Twin binge and was wondering if there are any other fans on here? What are your favorite, most memorable, whatever tracks by Mr. RDJ? His catalog is so fucking vast, I always find new tracks so I'm curious.
  2. Was just released @Runny After the last albums complexity, I am so disappoint.
  3. There was a similar thread prior to the board Chernobyl in the music forum; and it was the one thread on that sub-board that was pretty consistently active. But I always loved the rate the last movie you watched thread. This one can be for music! It doesn't necessarily have to be rating an album per se. It can be an artist as a whole or a song individually or anything in between. I just like grouping my music by albums. Cloudkicker - Beacons - 9/10 One of my very favorite albums and definitely his best work. The song titles on this album are taken from a book called The Black Box; a book of transcriptions of black box recordings from plane crashes. The titles are usually the last words on the tape. "We're going in. We're going down." "It's bad. We're hit, man, we are hit." "We are going to invert..." "I admit it now. I was scared." "We were all scared."
  4. And it wouldn't be an Amon Amarth single without a cheesy music video with terrible fight choreography. To be honest I think this is one of their weakest singles ever. I hope that the album as a whole has some better stuff. But this is looking like Deceiver of the Gods tier Amon Amarth.
  5. Better than Youtube Quality: Kenopsia by Illyria @GeneticBlueprint
  6. I can't think of a band that embraces the term "djent" more than Periphery. I also can't think of a band that simultaneously rejects it more than them. While they have the hallmark downtuned guitars and odd rhythms, they also lean into pop and electronic while infusing symphonic and jazz elements into their music. And HAIL STAN is no exception to that practice. In fact it doesn't just lean into the non-djent items; it dials them up to 11 while not losing any of the heaviness. In their continuing quest to reject convention (whatever that means in progressive metal music), Periphery took the longest most epic track on the album--"Reptile"--and stuck that first instead of saving it for last as is typical of prog-metal albums. And by god it is a burner. It ebbs and flows between fiery blazes and smoldering ash. Like, when it softens in parts you can still feel the hot pulse underneath. It really showcases Spencer's vocal ability and how he goes "up like an angel and down like a wounded ox." I know it's a lot to ask some people to listen to a 17 minute song so if you don't want to hear the whole thing just check out some 30 second highlights here, here, and here. But really you should listen to the whole thing. Ever wonder what Periphery would sound like if they were put in a blender with an intro to an anime show and early 2000s pop-punk? Yeah me too. Thankfully they wrote "It's Only Smiles" to answer that question for us. What if they wrote a 100% synth/darkwave song featuring Spencer's vocals? Okay here's "Crush". In many ways HAIL STAN feels like a culmination of everything that came before it. Take the track "Sentient Glow". It feels like it would fit in nicely on Periphery II: This Time It's Personal with hints of the poppier elements of tracks from that album like "Ragnarok", "Scarlet", and "Mile Zero". Other tracks like "CHVRCH BVRNER" and "Follow Your Ghost" feel like they would be at home on the front half of Periphery III: Select Difficulty or next to tracks like "MK Ultra" on Juggernaut. The last track "Satellites", which is also quite lengthy at nine and a half minutes, eases you off the high of the previous tracks with some relaxing and soothing melodies. And just when you think "okay this is enough softness for one song" BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE into a blistering lengthy loud outro. ... And I still can't get enough of this fucking riff from the first single they released. Fucking 10 out of fucking 10.
  7. His music video game has been on point for this album And there's a 23 minute long song. Hold on to your butts boys!
  8. https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-47442312 I didn't know a ton of their music but I know he was an icon of the industry. RIP
  9. Feel free to share any Asian music in this thread and here are some of my favorites to get things started: Edit: I would like to note that this is thread No. 1337 so lets make it great!
  10. No one made this thread yet so I figured I'd make one. At the very least @GeneticBlueprint will participate. I'm not posting mine in the OP, and it might come a bit later. That being said I probably wont do a deep dive like I did last year and will just go on what I've currently heard this year.
  11. https://variety.com/2019/music/news/peter-tork-the-monkees-dies-dead-1203144914/ I remember the Monkees in an episode of Boy Meets World
  12. I didn't think much of this song until the second half. I guess probably because there is less LaBrie.

  14. You've got to read this insane story about Jered Threatin--who faked a promotion company, live performances, management, record label, and... well everything really--to book a tour of Europe with his metal band "Threatin". Surprise! Nobody fucking showed up because you don't have any real fans. Hired musicians and venues are pissed. And it gets more interesting because he has a history of doing the same thing. The very end of this story is particularly sad. Video from the only show on the tour that wasn't cancelled... the first:
  15. The actual meaning behind the song is hilarious and perfectly on brand for the Beastie Boys.
