Some stuff:

  • THE HAUNTED - rEVOLVEr (good one, not as old school as before, tho);
  • MOTÖRHEAD - Stage Fright (who doesn't need another Head DVD?);
  • ENTHRONED - Regie Sathanas (aaah ye good ol' Black Metal...);
  • SYSTEM OF A DOWN - Hypnotize (now I can officially announce that the Mezmerize/Hypnotize combo is one of the best releases of the year!).

I don't know, I can't explain why I like it (can anyone actually quantify their personal tastes?), there's just something about a wall of ambient drone when I'm in a certain mood. There aren't many bands that can really tap right into the pulse of that thing called "atmosphere", but Sunn O))) are one of them. It's enthralling. I'd love to see them live, actually.

Yes, I have the new Akercocke, and I like it very much. A lot proggier than the last one, but at the same time tighter and far more mature. I miss the big, epic songs like "Praise the Name of Satan" (first few minutes of that song is awe-inspiring), but they've cut out a lot of the guff and filler from their sound. I likey.


You're absolutely correct about being in the right mood. I love their song, 'My Wall', where he kind of recites the sonnet over the cool rhythms....but the other stuff...guess I'll just have to keep plowing through it. O'Malley definitely has great talent. I just haven't figured out why yet.

Oh you Eurofolk are so lucky to get all the latest releases first. Akercocke is still on preorder here. Ephel hasn't gotten that far. Symbiosis may never even make it over here. Maybe I should check Amazon..........

YELLOW MATTER CUSTARD - One Night In New York.

This is a double CD with the audio of the concert, not the DVD (yet). Can't believe why I didn't buy it before, it's fantastic!!!

Since my computer has been fucked I haven't been able to post much, so here's my update on new cds:

RUSH: Rush, Fly By Night, 2112, Counterparts, Test For Echo, Hemispheres, Caress Of Steel, Permanent Waves, Signals, Grace Under Pressure, Hold Your Fire, Presto, Roll The Bones, A Farewell To Kings (all remastered to replace my original catalog)

The DOORS: Complete Studio Recordings box set

Mudvayne - The Beginning of All Things..., Lost and Found, The End Of All Things...

Crowded House: Recurring Dream The Very Best Of cd/dvd set

Dave Navarro: Trust No One

Blue Oyster Cult: Agents Of Fortune (remastered)

all the above were purchsed from BMG Music Club, at incredible prices. I payed an average price of about $4.30 for most of these, and about $7.50 for some of them. The box set only cost about $54.70 and that was with shipping included on those prices.... SWEET


DVDS:
Fates Warning - Live In Athens (although not recorded in surround sound, this is great, and way better than the shitty recorded they had on the Dynamo dvd)

Judas Priest - Live In The East (oh my fuckin god ! ! ! the Priest are amazing on this 2005 reunion tour. I didn't get the chance to see them on the tour but this dvd makes up for it. Halford and the rest of the band are in top nothch form and the 5.1 and DTS mixes make you feel like you're right there... get it NOW)

Deep Purple - Scandanavian Night (cool rare footage of the classic DP line up, with damn good sound mix considering how old the footage is)

Deep Purple-Rapture of the deep(thnx Schroeder-it took a little while to get to me because you sent it to my old address.I moved 6 months ago.)

Accused-Baked tapes-orignal recording of More fun than an open casket funeral.it was suppose to be a free cd with a magazine 20 years ago but it never happened.then they got signed to Combat records and re-recorded the entire album and put this version to rest until recently.

Judas Priest re-masters
rocka rolla
sad wings of destiny
stained glass
point of entry
sin after sin
screaming for vengeance
defenders of the faith
british steel
hell bent for leather
ram it down
painkiller
unleashed in the east

Angel Rat, what did ya think of the OCEANSIZE "E.I.P.P" cd? I loved the first release but just can't get into this one at all. No hook or groove like the debut album. I was totally bummed afetr listening to it a few times and still not enjoying it.

Living Evil, email me your new address so I can update my files. Sorry about the delay, hope ya like it. It's a bit different but it's a fun album.

Schroed! I kinda like this new Oceansize quite a bit. Here I must confess not owning the first album and I even haven't heard it. So I can't compare the new one to older stuph at all. But I must say, judging from this cd, I will certainly check out more.

Listening to it now (again) after a few beers and still enjoying it...

well, I guess I'll have to give the new Oceansize ANOTHER listen. Get the first one "Effloresce", and you'll see what I mean. I wasn't expecting a complete copy of the first album, but I also wasn't expecting a complete departure either.

I haven't bought any new music in a couple of weeks and I'm starting to get the shakes Pink Floyd PULSE finally gets an official release on DVD Tuesday the 29th... I've been wating years for them to release their live concerts onto dvd, and it's finally going to happen. I'm still waiting for the live WALL concert to get released, and after the reunion at Live 8 I'm thinking anything is possible now

I went and bought a bunch of CDs at my buddies shop on Boxing Day. He had good deals - buy 2 get the 3rd free.

Used Haul:

Bad Religion - The Gray Race
Fight - War Of Words
Overkill - W.F.O.
Overkill - I Hear Black
Overkill - Under The Influence

New Haul:

Jet Set Satellite - Vegas (2nd release of a friends band - generic hard rock. Their first album was way better)
Scott Hinkson - Tracking Outside In (a friend from work who I've known since childhood. Acoustic stuff mostly)
www.jetsetsatellite.com
www.scotthinkson.com

Then today I bought the new Demons And Wizards coz that was the only CD HMV had that I was even remotely interested in.


And finally the re-issue of the first album by Woods Of Ypres - Against The Seasons: Cold Winter Songs From The Dead Summer Heat showed up in the mail. Fucking awesome band. www.woodsofypres.ca

It's the biggest shopping day of the year in Canada, much like Black Friday in the US, except it's a satutory holiday here. That means you get paid even if you don't work on it and if you do you get crazy overtime rates. I worked on it and snuck off to my friends shop on a break. I got paid double-time-and-a-half that day.

Fuckin went nuts today and bought a shitload of CDs with Xmas cash. I was going to buy stuff I needed, but couldn't find it so I said fuck it and got...

Sentenced - The Funeral Album
Bad Religion - No Control (remaster)
Vital Remains - Dechristianize
Pink Floyd - A Saucerful Of Secrets (remaster)
Pink Floyd - Meddle (remaster)
W.A.S.P. - The Crimson Idol
In Flames - The Jester Race/Black Ash Inheritance
Strapping Young Lad - SYL
Megadeth - Youthanasia (remaster)

All in all a good day.

Btw, does anybody have the 1992 remaster of Pink Floyd - A Saucerful Of Secrets where there's a couple of pics in the booklet with the post-Syd era lineup? This one has a bunch of pics like that as well as the actual lineup that recorded the album. Very cheap looking print job on the CD itself too. Fucking EMI Canada.

Ah, so that's Boxing Day. Thanks for clearing that one up for us Yanks.

Kinda went nuts in the used cd section at Hastings:

Stevie Ray Vaughan-Soul to Soul, err, oops. Greatist Hits was in there instead! It was dark when I put it in the player, but noticed the songs weren't the same as the album I own! Took it back and got the cashier confused and she threw in the
Porcupine Tree-Deadwood for free!
Aerosmith-Honkin' On Bozo the Clown
Fear Factory-Archetype
Yngwie Malmsteen-Marching Out
Testament-Souls Of Black
The Escape Club????? I like on song on there!
Mozart-Piano Concertos
Sepultura-Roots
Judas Priest-Jugulator
Suicidal Tendencies-How Will I Laugh...
Now you can laugh at me....
Maroon 5!! Very cool, funky grooves! So fuck you!

Cryptopsy - Once Was Not (FINALLY got this one, man is it good. My first Cryptopsy disc)

Skinny Puppy - Rabies (The only other one I had was Too Dark Park. I've heard almost all of them though, it's not like I'm new or "late")

I also recovered 400 of my CD's from when I went back to Houston for the holidays. How's that for a haul?? I can finally put my list up for trades now...
