Streaming sites pay much less than cd or download sales, which is the reason some artists and labels withhold their records from them.
1. Yeah (Crass Version)
2. Losing My Edge
Sound Of Silver is one of the most disappointing second albums in history (just after Primary Colours by The Horrors), and I couldn’t be bothered with anything after that.
1. Whiskeyclone, Hotel City 1997 (Mellow Gold)
2. O Maria (Mutations)
3. Asshole (One Foot in the Grave)
4. Lord Only Knows (Odelay)
5. Get Real Paid (Midnite Vultures)
Metal bans already had their own infrastructure with labels, magazines and PR-companies that came out of a DIY-ethic when filesharing came around. Labels like Relapse and Southern Lord were never seen as the enemy, but as enablers of bands. So this whole crap about “killing greedy labels” got a lot less traction.
And of course metal originated as a counter movement to hippie utopianism. Maybe that made metalheads weary when hippie utopianism resurfaced as techno utopianism.
Some metal picks:
- Darkthrone – The Underground Resistance (February)
- Ghost – Infestissumam (Spring)
- Enforcer – Death By Fire (2/1)
- Suffocation – Prince of Bedlam (2/15)
We are 138! Best sing-along anthem ever. It’s time to be an android, not a man!
It reminded me of The Pipettes.
Is it me or does this sound quite a lot like Lost Sounds or Jay Reatard’s other project Terror Visions?
This is how I like my black metal.
I didn’t like Microcosmos at all, it lacked bite and felt formulaic. This new one is much better, but bands like Drudkh of WitTR will never be favourites, simply not my taste. The Watain and Nachtmystium are 2010 favorites, but I’d add Diamonds by Enforcer and two albums by bands that are not really metal, but do evoke the spirit of great bands like Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin: Black Mountain’s Wilderness Heart and The Dead Weather’s A Sea of Cowards.
What this list makes me want to do is blast Watain’s 2010 masterpiece Lawless Darkness as loud as possible.
If this song is a good indication for the album, Masters Of Reality would be the perfect opener. It sounds like something straight of Sunrise on the Suffer Bus.
It’s a private video…
It’s about time that Scooter get the tribute they deserve.
