This is perhaps the best album on the racks right now. I think "Rated R" will easily match it, but i digress. I mean look, the ranges is music from Heavy, thrashing, KICK ASS Metal, to the melodies works out perfectly. I mean you have songs like, "ALL HOPE IS GONE", "SULFER", "VENDETTA", "PSYCHOSOCIAL", "GEHENNA". And then you have songs like "DEAD MEMORIES", and "SNUFF". THE BEST ALBUM OF THE LAST DECADE IN ROCK!!!. And it will tie with "Rated R" For overall decade of the year. And let's not forget, the bands first official album as SLIPKNOT, was self titled, and came out in 1999. So for ten, TEN, years this awesome band has been revolutionising the way rock bands do their music. With the masks, the coveralls, the same barcode, hell the numbering system of 0-9, all make them that much more revolutionary. BEST BAND SINCE BLACK SABBATH,and LED ZEPPLIN.

Its hard enough to search for old threads in the Archives without burying them even deeper with non-Firefly threads.

I'll agree that Slipknot is good. I really like a good amount of there songs, but this thread title scared me a bit. You can't name a thread All Hope Is Gone in a Firefly discussion board. I was expecting some horrible news.

We need to add a plain old "GENERAL DISCUSSION" forum for anything that goes on that we want to talk about, like "RANTS", or something like that, i'd visit that ALOT. But for now, we have to make do, so it's "Talk Story", gottcha! BUY THE WAY, BUY RIHANNA'S RATED R, AND LISTEN TO "RUSSIAN ROULETTE", I THINK IT'S A PERFECT SONG FOR BROWNCOATS WHO ARE AT ODDS WITH THIER SURROUNDINGS.

It intrigues me that you call Slipknot 'rock' and also that you mention them in the same sentence as Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. Particularly Zeppelin.
Now, you're definitely allowed to like Slipknot (I'm not a fan, but I have friends who are), but I don't see how you could compare them in the slightest to a band like Led Zeppelin, in terms of genre OR how good they are.

Also, I'm not a Rihanna fan, so couldn't care less about 'Rated R', but I have heard 'Russian Roulette' and seen the video clip, and personally I thought it was pretty awful. Not my style of music though. If we're talking Russian Roulette inspired songs, I prefer 'Dangerous Game' by 3 Doors Down.

Could care less about Rhianna.... but the "Rated R" album from Queens of the Stone age still rocks.

True. I liked 'em better back when they were Kyuss, though.

Which ties into the Black Sabbath thing pretty well; Kyuss did a damned good cover of Sabbath's "Into the Void" from their "Masters Of Reality" album.

Never heard of Kyuss - will have to check 'em out.

(though I don't know that it's accurate to say when "they" were Kyuss - as Homme is the only one to be in both bands.)

For future reference, when i say "ROCK", i mean ALL of the sub-genres in the genre. Now, insulting Rihanna, and SLIPKNOT is a plain way to get your motherboard's butt kicked by people today. I mean come on, your insulting the entire next generation, not to mention Diddy, Jay-z, Ludacris, System of a down, Linkin Park, Mudvayne, oh let's see whom else. Oh yeah, Soulja Boy, Hurricane Chris, Island Def Jam, and all the current recording artisits, and record labels for the last twenty years. And while i love, and i mean love Sabbath, Floyd, and all the rest, it's the next generations time, it's not the 70's, 80's, or the first two years of the 90's anymore, it's time to listen to what we as a nation listen to now, as in current. So i take a portion of T.I'S song,"Live your life", which is a deuet with Rihanna, (YES, YES, YES, YES!!! OH MY GOD SHE ROCKS!!!!!), and i'll tell myself to "Just live your life."

Why do you constantly insult me, what have i said to you? All i recall, (if that), calling you is a conformist, so what's the deal dude? Remember, "All is not as it seems."

Ok. Lets see.
1. If you mean all types of rock, thats fair then, sorry, but I still don't see the comparison to Zeppelin.

2. You assume that the entire next generation like Rihanna? Wrong. I can tell you that out of all the people I know, probably only one or two like Rihanna.

You list all those names as if their music is anything like Slipknot or Rihanna, or as if by saying that I don't like Rihanna or Slipknot, that I'm being some sort of massive dick to the entire music industry. Wrong. (Although for the record, the only band I like from that list is Linkin Park.)

OBVIOUSLY I don't hate all the current artists and record labels from the last twenty years.
It's just that I'm more into different styles of music. Jason Mraz, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, John Mayer, Joshua Radin, Ziggy Marley, James Morrison, Sigur Ros, etc etc.
I'm sure you don't like all these bands. Doesn't mean you're a jerk. Just means you're an individual.

3. Just because it's 'the next generation', you're saying I can't listen to older music? Way to miss out on a LOT of classic music. You keep saying that Slipknot revolutionised rock over their 9 year period. Well I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be around without older music. Find out who they're inspired by (other than the devil, and death, and whatever else they grate on about) and listen to that, chances are, if they like it, you might to. Listen to some Otis Redding, some Cream, some Mozart, some Journey, some everything. You might not like it all, but it's all still there. (I'm not saying they influenced Slipknot by the way, just mentioning some great old music).
Music doesn't become obsolete.

4. I have to listen to what the nation listens to? Who's the conformist now eh?

I hope you realize that not liking someone's music isn't the same as insulting them.

Also, it's possible to like some of the acts you mention, and dislike others.

Now take your pills and calm down.

First off, i'm not saying not listening to them is insulting them. I'm saying, that saying that they suck, which i've heard from multiple people, is insulting.

Next off, there are no bigger dicks then Hidi & Spencer.

And saying i think that everone who doesn't listen to what i listen to is a dick, thast's wrong, i may sound like it, but if i call you a dick, then imma come straight up, and tell you.

And saying that i hate the older music is wrong too, i like me Mozart,Journey, Johnny Cash, SOME Elvis, not all. Arethra Franklin. I have a wide range of likes in the music industry, i just thinkm that SLIPKNOT, and RIHANNA are perfect for the times of today, they represent two extremes in the music industry, and frankly there music fits the moods that i'm in, AND THAT'S WHAT I MEAN, if you can't see peoples music from the moods, then you are just saying that people are waisting air.

And another thing, on the conformist issue, i'm a crazy, psychotic dude, man. So that's it, i'm nuts, yah happy, i'm as coco as as daffy duck ;)

I've heard of most of the people and groups you've mentioned, but probably have only heard complete songs by System of a Down and Linkin Park. To be honest, I haven't a clue who or what Slipknot is, so I guess I'm way out of the loop. For the rest, their style doesn't interest me so I don't pay any attention to whether they are popular or not. Just because they are currently on the charts doesn't necessarily mean they produce good music. Don't forget, Britney Spears was a headliner at one time too, and we all know how great she is.

Do you know who Steve Earle is, or Jesse Winchester, or Phil Ochs, Nick Cave, Grant Lee Philips, Gram Parsons, Taj Mahal, Charlie Parker, Mose Allison, Todd Snider, Jakob Dylan, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Shawn Phillips? I could go on and on, but you should get the point. We all have our preferences, and mine are not yours by a long shot, and vice versa.

EC, you been goin' through my CD collection again? :)

Pleasantly surprised to see Todd Snider mentioned in that crew; I feared he was mostly a "local" act. Met him a few times, and hung out with him at a camp-out once. He's a friend of a guy I used to work with. Todd's a really nice guy in person. Very down to earth and unassuming. And I've actually run into Jimmie Dale Gilmore AND Joe Ely in the freaking Home Depot near my house here in Austin. I never know what to say to famous people, so I just leave 'em alone, figuring that's probably the best thing to do for them. :)

But where's the love for Thelonius Monk?

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


I've been working on building my library and discovering all kinds of great stuff at lastfm. Slipknot is not in my library. I have discovered quite a few metal bands there that I really enjoy, but the vast majority of them are female-fronted. Basically, I like metal music without the snarly metal vocals, so those soprano singers are, in my opinion, the best thing to happen to metal. if you think Slipknot is the best thing to happen to metal, then go right ahead. And if you don't like any form of metal, that doesn't make you a bad person, either. I don't care, and I'm not here to argue. By the way jameron, you've been acting like you're here to argue and scream about what you think instead of actually discussing anything. That behavior from you may explain some of the reactions you've been getting. If you scream the same thing over and over and over and over, eventually folks will get tired of hearing it and won't want to talk to you anymore. Something to think about.
So I'm going to cruise back to lastfm now, to follow complex chains of tastes to more great music from all time periods that I never knew existed, forgot about, or have always loved and just want to hear over and over. If music is an interest of yours, that might be something you would enjoy as well. And hey, guess what? They have discussion forums there. Specifically for music. Just saying.

Hey Phoenix, could you let me know some of the bands you've been trying lately? What you just described, about liking metal without the snarly vocals, is exactly my problem with it too. I like the music side of things, but the vocals put me right off.
So yeah, any bands that really stuck out with singers that aren't all demonic and whatnot?

Cheers!

(and Jameron, I've excepted that you're pretty insane. It's fine, just try to tone down on the "everyone should like what I like!" thing. And the caps.)

Oh! I am happy to share! Nightwish is one of my first loves in that area. They have some gorgeous music. They switched singers recently, but they still have that operatic feel, and Tarja went solo, but pretty much kept with the metal, so look both of those up. Within Temptation is also gorgeous, with some of the lightest vocals I've heard paired with metal. They have the occasional song with the growls, usually exaggerated on the live tracks, but mostly they leave that out. And I have to mention Evanescence, because I think they have some absolutely wonderful metal tracks with some gorgeous vocals, no matter how many people say they're too mainstream Lessee... After Forever is kind of hit-and-miss with the demonic vocals. Their female singer is one of the most talented out there, I think, but about half their songs also have a growler in them. Luca Turilli's Dreamquest, what I can find of it, is amazing. I mean, amazing in that way that can bring tears to your eyes. Edenbridge is wonderful, and so far what I've heard is all angelic female vocals. Just today I ran across Octavia Sperati, which I'm pretty sure is an entirely female metal band, and I am loving them. Stream of Passion, Nemesea, Epica, Chalice, Imperia... all good so far. Oh! And Dragonforce is awesome, with a great non-death-growl male singer. And Markize, if I remember correctly, is female-fronted metal in French, for extra sexiness. Plug any of them in as a station on lastfm or pandora and you'll get all kinds of goodies.
Here is my blossoming library at the lastfm, if you're interested: http://www.last.fm/user/onetruephoenix/library I know there's even more gorgeous metal hiding in there. Along with some funny stuff, some alternative rock, hint of blues, some neo-classical (one of my new loves in music), some good old fashioned rock, some classical composers, and some stuff that probably passes for pop. I'm pretty eclectic. I've discovered and re-discovered so much stuff on this site in the last week, I'm just making with the musical bliss right now, I gotta say.

Thanks a bunch!
Since you've been so kind, would you mind letting me know what blues stuff you have, as well as the neo-classical (I dunno what that is...but I like classical..so...)

Thanks so much!! I love finding new music!

Well now, you do know how to keep me rambling! Neo-classical is... instrumental rock, I guess, would be the best way to put it. Stuff like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Vinnie Moore... I know there are tons of others. Basically a bunch of really talented guitarists just going to town. I love it, I really do. I can get so picky about vocals, so it's nice to eliminate those sometimes.
Now blues, I started with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Clapton. Through them discovered Johnny Lang, who is a ridiculously talented young man. I also like what I've heard of Indigenous. And I gotta say that James Marsters of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame has a couple screaming blues tracks in his mix; 'When I Was a Baby' and 'Birth of the Blues.' Man has some talent. And don't let anyone tell you I'm biased because I'm like totally in love with him, the talent is genuine

He's a friend of a guy I used to work with. Todd's a really nice guy in person. Very down to earth and unassuming. And I've actually run into Jimmie Dale Gilmore AND Joe Ely in the freaking Home Depot near my house here in Austin. I never know what to say to famous people, so I just leave 'em alone, figuring that's probably the best thing to do for them. :)

But where's the love for Thelonius Monk?


I used to live in Austin too so I'm familiar with a lot of the local people. I once ran into Jimmie Dale at Sun Harvest and encountered Pat and Barbara MacDonald (Timbuk3) in the emergency room of St. David's South. I could also have mentioned Ely, Lucinda Williams, Ian Moore, Jimmy LaFave, Dale Watson, Alejandro Escavedo, David Garza, Reid Wilson etc. Also could have listed a lot more jazz artists like Monk, Coltrane, Miles Davis, McCoy Tyner, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, and on and on.

Phil Ochs is my favorite performer of all time, and The Band my favorite group. I'll listen to almost anything besides rap/hip-hop and Top 40 Pop.

I may have to join this lastfm site. I just tried 'Bach' radio, and it's wonderful for all this studying I'm having to get done...

You know, I'd love to see similar sites for recommending books. And movies. They'd have to work a bit differently, but that would be shiny.

"White Boots Marching in a Yellow Land" is both a funny title (now) and a great song.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.

One of the best things about Phil's songs is that you can change just a few words and they are as relevant as when he wrote them. Change Viet Nam to Iraq or Nixon/Agnew to Bush/Cheney and the songs still have tremendous impact.

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


Today I fell in love with a band called Rhapsody of Fire. Epic.
Should've started exploring these kinds of music sites years ago.

Hey PR,love your new avatar. Then again I've been re-watching all of Buffy recently. Yes,the non-stop cute attacks over Willow are tough but someone's gotta do it.
So when it comes to Metal I think Rammstein does it for me,although knowing German helps. Of course some people might argue that Rammstein is technically Industrial.
Gotta check out your new music picks when I get a chance.
See you D*Con this year maybe?

Hallo there, Frank! Good to see you hereabouts again!
I will share the burden of cute attacks with you, if you like Actually, I've been thinking of updating the avatar once again, so if there are any Willow moments you think would be apt for me, feel free to speak up.
Rammstein is a little growly for me. They're kind of at the threshold of growling; not as much as some, but still a bit much for my personal taste. Also, I don't speak much German. They may be industrial, but no one ever said industrial music can't also be metal. Certainly not me.
Reminds me, I should search for some NIN to put in my library... I wish I didn't have so many memories associated with industrial music.
So far I have plans to be at the Con, with the usual tentativeness on how definite that will be, money being what it is. I certainly want to go again; I had so much fun this year, yet didn't get to half of what I wanted to do. It's also up to you to make it this time, mister!

Time to dust off the old Christmas album, make some coco, visit family, and just generally HAVE fun. My collection this time of year is all the classics, and the orchestra style songs. I mean, Manheim Steamroller, and others like them, my house never stops playing them, i grew up on them, and i LOVE them at this time of year. Now all i have to do is find the old Lonny Toons, and Alvin and the Chipmunks cd's and i'll be all set.
