Last week, we had a special show, being able to play music form all the albums we reviewed, and in the post, we told you we would try to keep that going Well, this week, we only got permission to play half as much music (that’s two songs, for those of you reading with a hangover), but it wasn’t for lack of trying. Despite it, we still have four new reviews ranging from some killer Rock from a band named after a Twin Peaks character to the world’s first Melodic Death double-album, all executed with our usual antics, mis-speakings, and friendly ridicule. Kyle also makes a suggestion for new section on the site!
Reviews: As They Burn – Will, Love, Life (Victory); Audrey Horne – Youngblood (Napalm); Omnium Gatherum – Beyond (Lifeforce); Soilwork – The Living Infinite (Nuclear Blast)
Soilwork – The Living Infinite
As They Burn – Will, Life, Love
That slogan can go right under our Byzantine-given NPR one. Ha ha ha ha
Nick said the old Audrey Horne sounds like Vision of Disorder (pre-comeback)…if I remember correctly.
Also, did not know that about Audrey Horne. Wonder if that had to do with the name choice…
Periphery was OK, not having seen them before but not hearing great things. I’ll go into that more next week.
Deftones were fucking amazing, just like last time. We ended up watching them from the second floor balcony, pretty much in the center. The sound was great and we really got to soak in the show. But, again, I’ll review more on next week’s show.
Where’d you guys end up last night? I didn’t see you in the pit shoving people during My Own Summer: Shove It! I think it’s cool when multiple pits break out in these types of venues as it did last night towards the end. Deftones were in fine form. It’s not every day I give a shout out to a bass player, but even though Chi’s story is one of the most tragic in all of music and it would be a triumph to get him back, the band could not have found a better fill-in than Sergio Vega. And I thought Periphery sounded better than the last time I saw them but felt their set could have been longer since there were only 2 bands.
I know I said this about Shai Hulud recently, but Audrey Horne is also one of the best band names of all time. Did you know that Audrey Horne can tie a cherry stem into a knot using just her tongue? http://youtu.be/NudxprfTY0I
But I couldn’t hear what Nick said about them, saying they sound like late career what?
I gotta come up with a testimonial? Pressure! How about something timely that relates to what I’m doing today:
“Listen to The Sideshow Podcast: it’s better than doing your taxes.”
I said Audrey Horne reminded me of late career Life of Agony. The melodies and phrasing felt similar to “Broken Valley.”
Jealous of the show last night. I’m sure ill hear more about it as the week progresses.
So much for my memory…
