I just recieved a killer compilation disc of some AWESOME Scandanavian bands from my Vodbrother NucV. Nuc, this Dimmu Borgir is incredible. For anybody wanting old school thrash they should definitely check out this group Terror 2000. I hadn't heard anything this good since the last time I spun Kreator. And Finntroll. Holy shit, accordions!!!! Now this is differnet. Kind of like a death metal jig. I feel like I should be dancing around a campfire with my Gypsy friends.
Finally, OPETH IS THE SHIT!!!

Thanks NucVamp!

Black Label Society: 1919 Eternal (Zakk Wylde has a cool voice but should drop the Ted Kazinski(sic) look!)
*
Cannibal Corpse: Bloodthirst (I'm buying the whole catalogue for sure now)
*
Morbid Angel: Blessed are the Sick (David Vincent mentions Voivod in thanks section...all hail Mozart! )
*
Dio: Magica (NOT one of his best musically, but puts forth great vox as always...could do without 20 minute story at end!)
*
Dio: Killing the Dragon (gets back to harder sound)
*
Arch Enemy: Wages of Sin (double-CD edition with rare and unreleased songs with original singer Johan...plus two videos)
*
Nebula: Let it Burn (badass stoner rock. 'nuff sed. The drummer Ruben Romano looks like Away!)

VOIVOD "astonomy domine / the unknown knows" cd single promo

I think this completes my qwest of the VOIVOD promo cd singles that feature Snake. I already have:
The lost machine / jack luminious
the nile song / tribal convictions
fix my heart (radio & album edits)
Angel Rat 4 song sampler remixes

I'll have to check out this site to see if I'm missing any.

Got some killer stuff from the mighty FIREFACE yesterday. A killer Opeth album plus a compilation vcd with vids of Maiden, Opeth(actually a guitar lesson by them-how cool is that shit people!!!), and Primus.

Thanks Cochise!! Now how about a report on that Opeth show you went to.

YES YOU DID, so here it is again:
Just received the advance cd of the new King Crimson "The Power To Believe" and LOVE IT of course. There are a lot of songs they had done on tour and on the Level 5 ep that have been reworked with more parts, powers, production. The songs that were on "happy With What You Have To Be Happy With" ep are a bit different also.
song list:
the poere to believe 1 - a cappella
level 5
eyes wide open
facts of life -intro
facts of life
the power to believe 2
dangerous curves
happy with what you...
the power to believe 3
the power to believe 4: coda
Great diversity from very atmospheric to very brutal, from quirky to beautiful lyrics. I would have like to have heard more newer songs, but overall I'm very "happy with what I have to be happy with"

KC never dissapoints me. Anyone who likes the direction they have been headed with this lineup will enjoy this cd.

This is going to be a monster when they do it live!!!

BTW I just received a 2cd set called THE FIRE THIS TIME which combines music and narration about the Iraqi war and US involvement. Interesting collection. The second cd is without narration. Lots of ambient , style bands: Ashra, Bass Communion (porcupine Tree's Steve Wilson project and why I bought it), Aphex Twins, Orbital,Soma, Bola...more.

Man, if those songs are remotely similar to that tune "Happy to be..."I'd buy the new album for sure. Geezz...I love cranking that song up at full volume. It turns my corolla into a corvette every time. "GONNA REPEAT THE CHORUSSSSSSSSSS"

THAT SONG KICKS ASS!!!
The other songs are good but not as powerful as that one. Some cool atmospheric pieces and "the power to believe" theme is carried through out the cd. If you don't have the Happy With ep and Level 5 ep it's a great new experience. If you have both, there's a few new tracks but you's be familiar with most of it already and may not sound so fresh (especially if you listen to the 2 eps as much as I do.

DGM SHOP
Click the link to go to the DGM shop where you can find it. I always buy straight from the lable so the bands get the most money. It's $15.00 + shipping and worth every cent.

Warning, this site can be very addictive as there are LOTS & LOTS of incredible KC items to purchase. All the Collectors Club cds are available now, instead of how it was set up in the past where you had to pre pay a year at a time to be a member and be able to aquire the rare recordings (which I have all of...of course). Enjoy the KC ride.

california guitar trio - cg3+2

My brother picked this up for me at Borders Bookstore in Annapolis Maryland where I was suppose to meet him to watch the band play play. CGT played a 45 minute set, that my bro informs me I should be kicking myself in the ass for missing. The weather in my area sucked and I didn't want to take the risk of driving 2 hours each way to see them, so he was cool enough to buy the new cd for me and get them to autograph it for me. This is the 5th time he's seen them and I still have yet to get 'experienced'. The 3 players were originally students of Robert Fripp's "Guitar Craft" school, and played in the 'League Of Crafty Guitarists' and the Robert Fripp String Quartet. Amazing players!!! Anyone interested in mind blowing acoustic guitar work needs to check these guys out.

Been totally out of money in 2002, now I got a job (my first 'real' job, at 32...) and I can buy shit again!

The Great Deceiver - A Venom well designed
some good ideas but I expected better. Too much goth cheese, not industrial enough.

Ten Years After - Their First Album + Undead + Stonedhenge : remastered + bonus tracks
Good old british blues-rock ('67-69); funny that Piggy mentionned Alvin Lee in the Guitar World interview...

Motorhead - Bite the Bullet :
2cds of unreleased and alternate versions from 77-82 + the live EPs (Vibrator & Leaving Here): killer compilation, great to have those rehearsals/alternate takes.

Ratos de Porao - Cada Dia Mais Sujo E Agressivo (1987)
Finally I found it! already had 'Dirty & Aggressive' (english version) but as always the original is so much better. Quite a Crossover album already, closer to 'Brasil' (1989) than 'Descanse Em Paz' (1985) which was really raw street-punk. Highly recommended to all.

Teenage Shutdown vol. 5 & 6 (60's garage punk compilations)
completing my collection... not the best volumes but interesting material (more moody pop-folk than garage punk).

the get it! (raw funk '67-69 compilation)
60's garage funk now, great for parties hehe

Unleashed - Hell's Unleashed
kinda classic death metal, but hey this album's really good! goes in the 2002 top list.

I could say the same for Vader - Revelations. Love their cover of Thin Lizzy's Angel of Death.

just heard Impaled - Mondo Medicale : the Carcass style taken to new heights (or depths?)!
Tried Theory in Practice: excellent!!
Oh, and i'm 'discovering' King Crimson at the moment: totally blown away by their recent material, er... and the older stuff too.
Tried Van Der Graaf Generator: boring. I don't like it. Better luck with Amon Duul / Amon Duul II !!
For Can freaks, I'd recommend Holger Czukay - Rome Remains Rome if you don't know this one already...

Oh yeah, that was the album that showed RxDxPx to the world, their first real crossover album. I was a very young fella in '87 and the first time I listened to this album was a true revelation (not only for me, but it happened also to be this way to the majority of the Brazilian metal scene), since this was the first hardcore band I actually enjoyed.

And I totally agree with you, Neutrino, the portuguese version (Cada dia...) is FAR better than the english one (Dirty...). Apparently, the only ones who didn't enjoy their new "metal approach" were the Brazilian punks, who, from then on, claimed RDP were "traitors of the scene".

then there's that song, 'Traitor' on the 'Brasil' album...
It's the first I got, a 2nd hand vinyl for 20FF ($4): "hey, nice cover, lots of songs, it's on Roadrunner, and the drummer's called Spaghetti? ok I gotta try this..." - and then that was one of the best surprise I ever had!!!
'Ao Vivo' was my first CD (or was it 'SOD at Budokan'? anyway I had to buy a CD player in '92) and it's probably my favorite RDP record

Bought Into Eternity's Dead Or Dreaming at their show on Saturday. This now goes in my top 5 of 2002. Maybe even my top 3. I cannot stop listening to it! They play a mixture of Death, Thrash, Prog, and Power Metal that totally kills! Unique mix of clean and death vox too. Amazing musicians. Check out my thread about the gig for links to their site, then go and buy this fucking CD. NOW!!!!!!!
