I know, your not that excited to hear about a new album from Sum 41, being just live recordings. But for the fans out there, you can watch it as of today. The date of the recordings was on September 15th, 2007. It’s available on iTunes currently.
If you want to listen to some of Matthew Good’s upcoming album “Lights Of Endangered Species” you can. Check out this link. There is two songs available for you to listen to from the upcoming album. The album will be released May 31, 2011. If you do like the two songs I suggest you buy or pre-order the album, support the artists!.
So far from listening to the two songs on the site it sounds pretty good. I liked his previous album “Vancouver” alot, and this album might take a different turn in style but still slow and melodic. The song “Non Populus” is around 8 minutes long, whew, that’s what I’m talking about .
The band is on tour right now and will be in my city pretty soon, and I think he’s doing pretty well with the tour and the new album. I once met someone who was a hardcore fan of him, at the time where I didn’t listen to him much. I can now say I’m almost as hard core as that fan was, this person I met. Theres times when I just need to listen to something slower than usual, something not too heavy, and he definitely answered those prayers for me with this album. I do listen to it daily, as well as his Vancouver album. I think he’s become so successful that not only does all his future albums become successful after his previous success, with each success building upon one another, but he can freely make any music he wants without worrying about success, that is what I like, these are the artists I listen to.
“No matter how many new Tool tunes are currently complete, I will personally guarantee that the new CD will be released on May 22, 2012 (or on May 15th, 2012). And unlike that old f**k rattling the singles with his cauliflower and mini-Cheddars flatulence, my calculation is not based on the preposterous coded Biblical numerology. Instead, it comes from a credible source who, himself, obtained the information via trance-contract (which was written down on a scratch pad) from an interplanetary avatar (and sector commander) named ZEMKLA JR. from the city of Farlon on the planet Selo (in the Bernard’s Star System).”
This nine-song track list was produced by Warne Livesey whom helped Matthew with his most popular albums like Underdogs (1997), and also Beautiful Midnight (1999). This is going to be the first Good album produced by Livesey ever since 2004′s White Light Rock & Roll.
It’s promised in a press release that this CD “takes Good in an unfamiliar direction, displaying arrangements that are distinct departure” coming from his previous work in his music. Apparently it is “stark and passionate”.
So since the album has been released as of May 31st, 2011 which it is now past then, go out and buy it, if your a die hard “Good” fan. I remember listening to the samples shown on his site before the release of the album which are “In a Place Of Lesser Men”, “Non Populus” and “Zero Orchestra” and they sounded pretty good. The samples are still playable on Matthew Good’s website still right now.
As always, all his music is unique, slow, can get somewhat heavier than you would imagine if your too used to slow stuff, but I just love it so much, its something that alot of people that just like anything on the radio would like. I give his album after just finishing listening to it, a 9.3/10.
Limp Bizkit is said to be happy with their current success with the new album, which is being released today. As for negativity from the public, the band awaits feedback on the album. I’d say there are haters and there are the fans. This is the way it is in the music business, people love and hate all different kinds of music. Check out your local CD store locally or online and sample some of their material.
After Metallica’s previously latest album “Death Magnetic”, I was quite interested in their next release since I thought it could be possible for them to release an even better album than Death Magnetic, or something just as good. And when I heard St. Anger, I thought what the heck, this is not Metallica, but it was… unfortunately.
People were all pissed off, because I knew alot of those Metallica fans, and talked to alot of people online on other blogs that hated it too. But Metallica never admitted it to being a failure or a mistake, as most artists don’t do when they release a not-so-great album. An example of someone getting pissed off at Metallica (instead for the lawsuits against Napster, not St. Anger) is when a guy took all his Metallica albums and smashed them on the street, on TV.
Alot of people care of what moves they make. Like Iron Maiden has stuck to their own old sound, Metallica, has not. When I first heard the first song “The View” from their latest album: “Lulu”, I was devastated. Here you can listen to the whole album. But beware, it won’t be like the rest of their stuff. The album is released on October 31st, 2011. So I suggest you listen to it first, before you buy, and only buy it if you like Lou Reed.
I have to say though he has a pretty good voice. But just imagine Michael Jackson with Metallica and making an album, or Cher and Metallica. And also imagine them writing and recording all the music in a garage, and just jamming, and then just saying “good enough” and just releasing it without editting anything. That’s what it sounds like to me, but that’s just me. This is my rating, and I’m giving it a 2/5, but that’s just my rating. If you like it then make a positive article album review about it. Now I am going to go back to listening to my Iron Maiden, and look forward to Megadeth’s new album coming out. Godspeed.
The frontman of Linkin Park, Chester Bennington has released some information about the band, not only saying that they’re working hard on their new record currently BUT, he would be suprised himself if it was not released in 2012 next year.
This album will be a follow-up on the “A Thousand Suns” album which was released in September 2010 and was named No. 1 which has sold 784,000 copies to this day, as said by Nielsen SoundScan.
“Typically we’ll have a once-a-week meeting to go listen to the songs that they’re coming up with and talk about them,” Rubin told Billboard.com of Linkin Park back in June. “For so early in the project, they are much further along than they have been on the last two albums we did. On ['A Thousand Suns'] there were still a lot of irons in the fire. We knew, ‘OK, we can’t do this forever. Let’s leave this batch and we’ll come back and address it when we start up again.’ “
During the Rolling Stone interview, Chester said that he had hoped the band could come up with a CD release every 18 months (very exciting news for that fact as they have released three albums from the studio over the course of ten years so far). This is good news and interesting as they shorten touring times and record while on the road.
“Mike [Shinoda] and I are out there with our studios,” Bennington said, “technology, thank God, has gotten to the point when what used to be three refrigerator-sized racks of equipment and a full board the size of a king bed can now fit in my back pack — and we’re working on new music as we’re driving in the car to a venue or in our hotel room, and when we come home, everybody works in their homes.”
I personally liked them from the beginning (who didn’t?) and as my friends (being their beginning fans) have now faded out of listening to them and say they are “sell-outs”, and say “who listens to them anymore?”. I do, I am honestly not a hardcore metal head like some of my friends, I like alot of rock that is alternative, or slower than usual but only IF it sounds good to my ears. I can’t listen to Korn on a routine, or Slipknot at all. I like what sounds good, and I have no fear in listening to music I like around my friends with them in denial. If I listened to Avril Lavigne in front of them I would have a reason to listen to it on my own time, well I don’t like her anymore because it’s not my style, but that’s just an example. I like the mix of rap and metal, and rock all in one band. I could never go past Eminem in the genre of Rap, and I could never go past Rap/Metal in the name of Linkin Park. I do not listen to Jay-Z, or Lil’ John. That’s just my taste in music.
So anyways you get my point, as it is my own opinion. If your friends think Linkin Park is like Nickelback, they can go to hell as your taste in music does not have to lie within that “one mind” in groups of friends. Be yourself, be unique, be who you really want to be, and choose the music you really want to listen to. Wow, I really pushed the end of this article to the limits. Now I will hit the “Publish” button before I say anything more…
If you are a Tool fan, if you have listened to A Perfect Circles material, and if you like Puscifers last material, you may like this album. It takes a unique taste in music to like this music, as it is very different from all Maynards past music, alot different. It’s more slow than heavy, more emotional or alternative.
This genre of music is code named “Industrial Experimental”. Well, honestly it’s not code named at all, but you get what I mean. In the beginning of my discovering Maynards music I was overhearing friends of mine saying how much they loved Tool itself. I took some time to listen to Laterulus and it took me alot of listening but eventually I engulfed myself into a whole new genre of music. Now everyone I know that is a music fanatic likes Tool, or have heard of them. They are as big as Metallica now, and are unique and I do not know of any other band that is like them. But there is alot more beats in this album, with the voice of Carina Round singing with him in many of the songs too.
The album cover above shows Maynards style, unique truely it is indeed. You can see the numbers on his shirt, resembling him as an escapee from prison?, I think so. “Man Overboard” was the first song I heard before everything else and I did actually found it quite catchy, and it was very different to my taste. I heard his voice in it and I loved it even more because of that. I hear that feel and sound of A Perfect Circle in this album too, similar to the sounds of the album “Weak and Powerless”. I give this album a 3.4/5. I look forward to Maynards Tool album if released after this one when the tour is over. If not Tool’s album next, then A Perfect Circles, and I am dieing to hear “By and Down” that has only been recently played live by APC.
My favourite songs are ones that I like because they have a good sound to them, even though they aren’t *heavy*. If you like heavy stuff then this isn’t for you. So basically I like “Man Overboard”, “Monsoons”, “Telling Ghosts”, “The Rapture” (the guitaring sounds alot like APC), “The Weaver” and “Toma”. But I like Puscifers songs “Potions” and “Momma Sed” more than any of those songs. One song I will mention that is pretty good is “Horizons”, it’s got alot of beat to it. This album feels like what Guns ‘N’ Roses did with their long delayed album, Chinese Democracy. Picture Tool with their album “10,000 Days” going to this specific album I’m reviewing, you might agree somewhat that it’s alot different. But I think Maynard was prone to making these changes in his music. And that indeed is what he has done. I don’t dislike it, I am liking it so far, and I think he will notice his errors and continue to make better and better music within his 3 bands.
