    Fri 12 Aug – SPIRIT of Burgas

    Ден 1, в който разбираме що е блаженство

    Три дни в три думи: Музика. Море. Бургас.

    Формулата е вече добре позната, а еклектичният бъркоч, който тя отприщва, става все по-сполучлив. И този път излязох с доста повече и по-любими изпълнители, отколкото имах на входа,но началото бе отбелязано от вече набралите инерция и фенова база Smallman. Както биде отбелязано, прецедент е една и съща група да свири на два поредни Spirit-a, но надграждането на Jack с главната сцена е показателно. Отварят с Evolution – изпитан номер, който помита съзнанието и мята директно в лабиринта. За епилептичните движения на Цецо прозират дърветата на Морската, сиви и надвиснали.

    Здрачава се.

    Паркът е пълен с осквернени плюшени животни. Разпънати, провесени с главите надолу, натъпкани в огради, хралупи, автомобили… Някои дебнат измежду клоните, други просто висят немощно.

    Jani Lane е открит мъртъв. Никой не знае.

    Смрачава се.

  • Tuesday Twenty: My top albums of the 90s part three: 60-41

    20 Apr 2010, 17:54 by amodelofcontrol

    Onto part three of my 90s album run-down. There is again a a Spotify playlist accompaniment to it, which is only missing a couple of entries (it's remarkable how much is now on Spotify, actually!).

    My top albums of the 90s part two: 100-81
    My top albums of the 90s part two: 80-61

    Vulgar Display of Power
    There are few albums quite as extreme and as in-your-face as this - certainly few others that made the mainstream, anyway. A classically brutal album, Phil Anselmo flits between bellowing encouragement to to better himself (and others), and wanting to start a fight with the world. Particularly the opening half of the album, which brings a new meaning to the idea of front-loaded. This was front-loaded with a punch in the face.

    The album that arguably opened the floodgates for alternative rock to rule the roost in the 90s, it's still a pretty special album. There are no bad songs, a fair number of classics…

  • Tuesday Ten: 90s Industrial Metal

    14 Jul 2009, 11:58 by amodelofcontrol

    As a result of the NiN gig - at the last minute I've won two tickets thanks to those nice people at drownedinsound, and also mentioning one of the below songs on Twitter/Facebook yesterday, today's Tuesday Ten had a hasty change of subject yesterday afternoon to this, and I'll hold over what I had planned for a few weeks (as next week's is all-but-drawn-up, too).

    So, what is this week? A concentration on one of my favourite genres, which is a somewhat difficult one to pin down, particularly as many different interpretations of it exist. But anyway, let's give it a go.

    The 90s were a heyday for industrial metal - let's be honest, few bands have been able to continue a high quality output of this style into this decade, and fewer more recent bands still have been able to keep the flame alive (with notable exceptions being the likes of Interlock and Cyanotic). To confirm what I mean by industrial metal - lots of industrial electronics, and lots of metal guitars and rhythms. …
  • Konzertbericht: Die So Fluid, Prong - Substage Karlsruhe am 04.06.2009

    6 Jun 2009, 07:30 by venue_music

    Das Substage in Karlsruhe ist in einer früheren Fußgängerunterführung untergebracht - der Name ist also nicht nur irgendein ein Name. Der Sound im Substage zeigt dann auch, warum Strassenmusiker Unterführungen für ihre Darbietungen bevorzugen, denn der war einwandfrei im ganzen Club. Prong dürfte man keinem Metal-Fan vorstellen müssen, mindestens den Klassiker Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck hat wohl jeder schon mal gehört. Als Special Support haben Prong auf der aktuellen Europa-Tour Die So Fluid dabei. Diese Band aus London sollte unseren Lesern bereits bekannt sein - Andrea und ich machen ja kein Geheimnis daraus, dass uns Grog, Drew und Al sofort beim ersten Hören des Albums Not Everybody Gets A Happy Ending überzeugt hatten. Weiterlesen auf venue music. Die Fotos von Die So Fluid gibt es in unserer Galerie.

    Sa., 30. Mai. – Prong, Die So Fluid, Urban Majik Johnson

    Kleines Resümee zu diesem fantastischen Konzert von unseren alten Helden. Erstmal wieder ein dickes Dankeschön an 10er, der mir den Besuch im Logo erst ermöglicht hat, da er die 19€uronen für mich auf den Tisch geblättert hat. Die erste Band haben wir leider verpasst, da wir zu spät dort ankamen und noch mit nem Liter Bier beschäftigt waren...Laut einigen Besuchern waren Urban Majik Johnson aber durchaus sehens- bzw. hörenswert. Die nächste Band war dann Die So Fluid, die mit ihrer Frontfrau auch wirklich einen guten Eindruck bei uns hinterliessen. Uns fehlte zwar ein bischen die Wut und der Hass in der Musik, aber nett anzuschauen war(en) sie trotzdem. Ich würde den Stil der Band als eine gesunde Mischung aus Gothic und Rock bezeichnen. Nach ein paar Liedern wurde uns das aber zu eintönig und die Lust auf eine Sportzigarette war gross, sodass wir dann auch raus an die frische Luft pilgerten...

    whenever i find myself in another "i need me some metal" mood, like that bad ass Pat Boone, i end up feeling a smidge nostalgic.

    if i try to think of the very first bands i liked the very most, i would have to say The Beatles and The Cars, who i'm sure i would like anyway but they're a powerful mnemonic for my youth, and specifically, my mother. see, i was raised by my grandparents, so i knew my Johnny Mathis, Doris Day, Patsy Cline, etc etc before i knew anything i really like now (which is not to say that i don't still go through random Hank Williams phases, i most certainly do).

    no, this journal entry is about the music that said "oh, you like oldies? yeah, that's cool... how about a sledgehammer to your FACE, BITCH!!"

    One. first metal song i can remember hearing. i was.. let me think, about ten years old. i'm on my weekend visit to my mother's and out in the parking lot when we hear this loud ass cacaphony coming from someone's car. …
  • Tuesday Ten: tcf and Stormblast top fives (DJ list)

    24 Jul 2007, 17:40 by amodelofcontrol

    So, this week's Tuesday Ten. It's kinda ended up as a Tuesday Twenty, in fact. Let me explain...After the apparent controversy of a negative list last week, it's time for something rather more positive. So what did I settle on? Well, I recently passed three years of having the control frequency in Sheffield (at the same venue for all that time, too), so in celebration-ish, here are the top five played from each of tcf and Stormblast (although to clarify, these include every set ever recorded on my website, but the general pattern is the same).

    Where does the twenty come, you ask? Well, due to a number of "equal placings", there are 15 tracks in the Stormblast top five...

    tcf Top Five

    This wasn't all that surprising, to be honest.

    01 Cyanotic | Order Out of Chaos

    This being a favorite of all of the regular tcf DJs since it's release back in 2005 has ensured it's position at the top. Well, that and the fact that industrial-metal doesn't get any better than this. …
