What time stamp are you going to use with Take the Time?

~1:45-2:30

I have their first 2 albums and liked them especially Alive or Just Breathing but haven't heard anything since. Looks like I've missed a lot of albums. Well, I have them all now on Spotify.

I saw KsE a few months back when they came through Asheville, and it was a huge tease to see Jesse back up on stage. I absolutely LOVED Howard as the lead singer, as his voice was just plain powerful, and initially I was pretty upset that he left. After going to see Times of Grace (Jesse and MikeD's side project) I was immediately stoked about the switch back to Jesse though. His writing is just plain good. He actually wrote their album "The End of Heartache" but didn't hang around long enough to record it so Howard got to do the vocals for that.

Another nice note is now Howard is going another direction and teaming up with the guitarist from All Shall Perish and the drummer from Divine Heresy so that should be a pretty fun story to watch unfold smile.gif


Ok so here are a few new albums (to me) I have been jamming hard on lately other than KsE:

Parkway Drive : Atlas
As I lay Dying ; Awakened
Between the Buried and me: Album with Sulkies on it, can't remember
Bring me the Horizon's new album
All that Remains new album, but they are going soft...Boo
Byzantine


I soften that stuff up with a little Pretty Lights and Blackmill to take some of the red out of my eyes after all that Metal. Seems to be a pretty good playlist at this point though biggrin.gif

Their Metallica albums are pretty good. Liked Inquisition Symphony the best. They're part if my studying playlist.
post #338 of 1183
Yea they have some pretty neat stuff. I don't have any of their stuff on my HD but I run into their music a good bit and usually enjoy it.

Hehe, i was expecting this thread to be a play on words......You only just heard of Katatonia TC? Aren't they Swedish just like Opeth and even toured together a few times! I personally like them more than Opeth. My Metallica story was all about Kill em all, everybody loved Master of Puppets or Megadeth or Slayer. As a teenager it was all about kill em all, i must have listened to that album a million times before finally branching out. Like you I was also taught it was "devil music" and threw away a Metallica cassette i came across in my younger days. I also preferred RTL to MOP, the funny thing is one of my uncle's was a metalhead but we never really discussed it.

I will be back to this thread! I don't really use spotify or pandora or last.fm or anything like that but i'll try to be helpful if i can. biggrin.gif

Off the top of my head GOJJJJJIRRRAAAAAAA!!
I think they've opened for Metallica actually, i wonder if they totally owned some of those shows.

I also noticed that some Katatonia type of fans are into "shoegaze" imagine if there was a shoegaze thread going on at avs one day tongue.gif Oh and Agalloch!!!!

Yeah, I hadn't heard any Katatonia stuff until I saw them live with Opeth, now I have all of their albums. Great band.

I do have one Agolloch album and like it a lot, I should probably check out more.
post #346 of 1183
My favorites are the same ones I grew up with: Metallica, Slayer, Maiden, Testament, Sepultura, Pantera, Iced Earth, Fear Factory. My 10th grade Algebra teacher took a bunch of us to the Sepultura/Pantera show in 94. Cool dude. Anyone see Testament's Live in London show? I heard Sins of Omission on YouTube. Man it was badass.

My old guitar players new band is opening for Diamond Head this month.

Yes, yes it is
post #350 of 1183
Yesterday I bought and watched Metallica's Quebec Magnetic... Amazing to watch them play their latest songs as well as the older ones with the same energy and pleasure. Kirk rules wink.gif Next time they're coming to Montreal, I'll be there! My only regret is that I bought it on dvd instead of Blu-ray, but at $8.99 it was too hard to resist! smile.gif

if you don't have patience go directly to 3:45 wink.gif

How long a drive was it? You guys are lucky to live relatively close to each other, although I feel lucky too there are a great bunch of avs guys here in KC too, so much so that over time I just think of them as friends and not some dudes I know from the forum.

If chopshop every has a mass gathering and I make the invite list I'm going to have to suck it up, get over my fear of flying, and make the trip. That room will be off the charts especially now that Mark Seaton will be fine tuning everything. How close are you to chop?
post #352 of 1183
Yea "close" is relative. Andrew is ~330 miles from me. takes a good 5 hours to get there. it will take me close to 8 to drive down to Austins place in VA. Chop is in Connecticut i beleive. which would be 5+ hours depending on where exactly he is
post #353 of 1183
I managed pretty good time back yesterday, but there is no way I can take the time to read the results thread like I would want right now. I will have to get to that this evening when I get home. 10 hours drive still has me in a bit of a funk...to be expected I guess. FWIW I one of the best sugar/caffeine crashes I had ever experienced about an hour after I pulled in. man it was intense.

Carp-great thread and I'm glad I found it. My metal progression began after hearing my cousin's old Kiss records as a kid and eventually evolved into ACDC/Maiden/Metallic/Slayer type of stuff. I still listen to those classics as well as newer bands like Tool and The Mars Volta. With the exception of a few bands like Volbeat & Adrenaline Mob, a lot of the newer stuff just doesn't "grab me" like the oldies did when I first heard them. I can literally remember where I was the first time I heard "Revelations" and "Master of Puppets," which is saying something because certain portions of the late 80's were a little hazy for me wink.gif.

Stay heavy.

Thanks man!

I saw the Anvil movie - very good and also depressing.

Yeah, I agree it's not the same with new music as it was back then and I wonder how much of that has to do with how old you/we are when exposed to new music. I wonder how I would feel about Master of Puppets now if I heard it now for the first time. I doubt it would have as strong of an effect on me as it did back then. Still, discovering and really getting into "new" bands like Dream Theater in the mid 90's and then Opeth a little over 10 years ago still have an impact.

As much as a LOVE listening to music now and always will, it is nothing compared to when I was a kid. I would listen any way possible - on a walkman where one headphone cuts in and out, a hand held tape recorder with a mono speaker, the family POS "stereo system" that looked more like antique furniture, etc. Now if I'm not in my room listening to my system I'm not very interested. I hardly listen in the car because the sound quality pales in comparison to my room. In short, I'm spoiled!!

I find this doc is superior to the other two, just because it's 11 hours of content allowing for much more detail.

Really great stuff in the Progressive Metal, Grunge, pre-metal and other episodes.

Unfortunately they didn't get to do an Extreme Metal Episode which covers Death Metal, Grindecore, Black Metal etc, but there is a fundraiser to get that started: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Dhm6UtnuKs
It's also lacking Doom/Stoner Metal which sucks. I think they could do an entire episode on Doom Metal.

I think Such Hawks, Such Hounds does a good job covering the Stoner/Doom sound... at least as far as bands like Sleep, Kyuss, Sunn O))). (If it's been posted earlier in the thread, I apologize for the re-post)

Very cool, I watched the first 15 min or so, plan on watching all. I'm not very familiar with this genre so it's nice not to hear the same old stuff over again.
post #358 of 1183
Haven't been on this thread in a bit,

I heard this on the radio the other day. I didn't realise it has been out for 3 months already!

Phil Anselmo's new solo Album

Conflict, which has similar vocal style to SuperJoint Ritual, and guitar which seems like it's straight out of Cannibal Corpse's Carnivorous Swam.

You heard THAT on the radio!?! Where do you live?
post #360 of 1183
Oh, also, totally not metal, but pretty metal, if you know what I mean.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrmag9NMUms

This is Split Lip Rayfield. I first saw them open for Primus a couple years back. Think Bluegrass played at Thrash Metal tempo. Oh and that Bass guitar is called a Stitch-Giver.
