11 Dec 2010, 09:49 by Silvio52Terzo lavoro per i Filter: dopo “Short bus” del 1995 e “Title of record”, uscito nel 1999, la responsabilità della cruciale “prova del tre” grava tutta sulla schiena di “The Amalgamut”, amalgama industrial-pop sapientemente filtrato e distillato dal genietto incompreso Richard Patrick (ex turnista dei Nine Inch Nails nonché fratello dell’attore Robert – il T-1000 di “Terminator 2”, per chi non lo sapesse) con l’assistenza del polistrumentista italo-americano Geno Lenardo, del produttore Ben Grosse (di recente impegnato coi Sevendust per “Animosity”) e della sezione ritmica composta da Frank Cavanagh (basso) e Steven Gillis (batteria).
Si salpa e si naviga subito a vele spiegate con “You walk away”, impetuoso pezzo di robusto hard-rock in cui sale già alla ribalta la capacità interpretativa della voce di Patrick, perennemente in bilico tra lo screaming ed il cantato melodico; si passa subito ai due singoli finora estrapolati dall’album: duplice scelta senza dubbio indovinata e patrocinabile…
9 Nov 2010, 19:49 by amodelofcontrolRather later than originally intended - I had to push it back a week because of Whitby - here is my usual tracks of the month roundup.
Oh, and you can hear most of the songs on this Spotify playlist.
Track of the Month:
Covenant feat. Necro Facility
It's been a long, long time coming - and delayed by some considerable time thanks to the well-documented problems at SPV - but the new Covenant single is finally here. A collaboration with fellow Swedes Necro Facility, this is Covenant taken in new and different directions, but retaining the hook-laden core that Covenant are so very, very good at. Just try, once you've heard it a couple of times, to get the chorus and the synth hook out of your head. But there is more than just those elements that are of note, as Necro Facility deliver the restrained, heavily-treated verse vocals, while Eskil soars in for the chorus. It's Covenant, Jim, just not quite as we knew them before. …

27 Dec 2008, 22:50 by MurderCapitalMy music year of 2008 and some short thoughts on the releases. Don't agree? I respect that, just don't start bitching about it, make your own list.
Fight - K5: The War Of Words Demos / Into The Pit
Two new old releases from Rob Halford's old band Fight saw the light of day this year. First a album with demos from "The War of Words" demo sessions and then a boxset containing the bands two albums, the "Mutations" EP and a DVD with live footage. The boxset is a good release (especially since the albums are out of print) but can someone tell me why the "K5: The War Of Words Demos" had to be a separate release and not be featured on the boxset? And what about the rare "Christmas Ride" single? Why isn't that one feature on there? A good boxset release, but it could have been better.
Kottonmouth Kings - The Green Album / Greatest Highs
In my opinion "The Green Album" is the best Kottonmouth Kings album in a long time, it has several good songs. …

13. I Am the Ghost
Fools & Horses recently released their next album, "I Am The Ghost". The alternative rock/powerpop band from DC has been known for their strong arrangements and accessible rock tunes with clever hooks. Lets see how their journey continues on "I Am The Ghost".
Anna Was The Enemy
With the uptempo Anna Was The Enemy, Fools & Horses is off to a good start on this album. This catchy rocker brings energy and spirit that sets a good mood for what's to come. In a way it reminds me of July For Kings a little, who were also able to produce catchy, straight-forward rock songs.
16 Nov 2006, 17:46 by G0ggeAlright, I wont deny it. I love Richard Patrick...'s voice :P. I can't help but think that this is what Chester Bennington might have sounded like if his voice wasn't all childish and stuff.
So when I herd that he was forming a new band, I was all psyched up. Then I hear it's with Dean DeLeo and Robert DeLeo I went beyond psyched. Then I hear the first single Goodbye and I was totally blown away by three things. 1) The Guitarwork 2) The Drumwork, and 3) The Voicework. These guys are a match made in heaven. The DeLeo Brothers owned those freakin' guitars, and Ray Luzier is a welcome addition.
So needless to say, I got the album on release. And I'm totally enjoying it. It's great music all around. It's also good to see that Patrick doesn't only have his roots on Alternative Metal. With Army Of Anyone he picks up a much more post-grunge sound. Which I suppose only makes sense considering he's playing with guitarists who were in one of the deffinitive 90's grunge bands.
