MineThe Earth Will Shake
13 Dec 2010, 04:20 by andmichaelheardI think everyone should have a song that compels them to run as fast as they possibly can, for as long as they possibly can (eye of the tiger?). Not necessarily music to exercise to but music to literally run away to...Just a thought. It should be a song(s) that are your fallback when times are tough and you'd rather not spend another day sulking. Running as fast as possible, with no actual destination in mind, just running until your heart explodes.

24 Feb 2008, 21:32 by ScarletStarlettI was halfway through my review of the Thrice / Say Anything show last Saturday when I lost my train of thought and have been unable to get it back. Now I'm getting all critical and hate everything that I've written about it so far, so I guess that review is never going to see the light of the Internets.
I do always forget how good Thrice is live, though. I wasn't looking forward to seeing them, and I was mostly there to see Say Anything, yet the moment they took the stage I remembered just how much I like seeing them live.
They always play such solid sets, in terms of songs and quality. I've been unable to find their set list online and I can't remember most of it, but it was really, really long and contained a very healthy amount of old songs, which was nice. They encored with a new song from the second installment of the Alchemy Index, which I thought was brilliant and really enjoyed, and The Earth Will Shake.
Plus they just play so well every time I see them. …
16 Dec 2007, 09:51 by ScarletStarlettThis is long and badly written. Apologies.
I was really considering skipping this show. I absolutely loathe the venue (Arrow Hall is basically an airplane hangar. I don't understand why they have shows there); I originally had a group of five people going to the show with me but everybody ended up bailing so I would've had to go by myself; and I had a driving test the next morning that I had to be up at 4:45am for, and my mom's policy is that she'll pay for my first try, but if I fail it I'd have to retake it on my own money (which would end up being over $200).
Choices, choices. In the end I went because I knew I'd regret it a lot if I didn't, despite the circumstances.
By the time I arrived at Arrow Hall, after first driving to Erin Mills to pick up my ticket and then going through coat check and all that, I missed most of mewithoutYou's set. I hadn't listened to their music beforehand so I had been hoping to hear what they were all about (especially since I'd heard that they put on a great live show) at the show…
25 Nov 2007, 00:46 by Jae9Though not necessarily released the past two months, these are my top twelve songs I can't seem to get enough of at the moment.
12. Rocky Votolato - She Was Only in It for the Rain
As a huge Blood Brothers fan, I was interested to hear Waxwing a few years ago, and it took me another few years to listen to Rocky. I was browsing a CD store one day a few months ago and almost hit the floor when I found two copies of Makers on the shelf for $5. I could not listen to it enough, and this track struck a chord with me, as did the entire album. I haven't listened to a whole lot more besides Burning My Travels Clean and The Brag & Cuss, as it is near impossible to find his albums in Brisbane, and I am loath to download his entire back catalogue and never buy the albums for real.
11. Suicidal Tendencies - Institutionalized
I am a little bit ashamed that it took me so long to find this song. Thanks Guitar Hero II. This song is just so funny…
12 Jul 2007, 16:25 by thehushsound77Today for album of the day, I've chosen:
A lot of hardcore Thrice fans weren't too happy with this album because of its mainly progressive feel with songs they actually had to put some effort into listening to. What Dustin and guys did on this album is spectacular and powerful, mixing incredible guitar while mixing both inspiring and depressing lyrics to create quite a mental image while indulging in the this album. Check out the songs "Red Sky" and "The Earth Will Shake".
Until the next episode...

14 Jan 2006, 22:31 by EndofNothingWell, this is my first real journal entry that's not just lists.
Isis's song So Did We is one of the most beautiful tracks I've heard in a while.
Even though it is technically metal, it's more than just that.
It starts out heavy with some growling vocals in the background, but shortly goes into melodic instrumentals. Some chain gang-esque vocals in the background for a little, think The Earth Will Shake, and then beautiful, yet not soft, melodies for most of the track.
It's pretty much an experience hearing this epic piece, and you can't say that about many songs these days.
Another cool thing about Isis is that their vocals aren't in the foreground as with most bands, they're in the background. Just another instrument to them.
And they really pull it off well.
If you only listen to one new track for the rest of your life...why the hell would you do that?
But if you're looking for new music that provokes thought and is beauty at its finest, either buy Panopticon or download it off iTunes or one of those sites.
