  • TalonsOfFire Good question, one that I ask myself every day
    July 28 10:09 PM
  • Artuma yeah honestly the vox made it actually pretty hilarious (which it definitely shouldn't be), but as you really love it i thought it has to be a huge grower and with time, i get used to the vox and learn to appreciate the album. i'll give it a few more listens and then see if my opinion has changed
    July 28 02:21 PM
  • Artuma dude just listened to that jeromes dream album and man those vox, maybe i need a couple more listens

    July 27 08:58 PM
  • MortimusPrime 3rd is less higher rated, more heavy but still very good in my eyes. 2nd tho is better, less heavy and more atmospheric and complex
    July 27 02:04 PM
  • MortimusPrime 3rd album is heaviest (check the song the grotesque)
    July 27 02:00 PM
  • MortimusPrime i swear you said the exact same thing like az few months ago like omg deja vu. but yea listen to johnny t's 2nd album IN DA LIBARY

    July 26 11:44 PM

    July 19 09:04 PM
  • MortimusPrime its really lyrically strong. for example "We were left to our own destiny, failed at that and sought solace in the coldest arms imaginable. We are the makers of our own fate and we failed. We all have blood on our hands." - oh so emo
    July 19 08:59 PM
  • MortimusPrime fair enough bro. you listened to more funeral diner yet? i got the underdark on vinyl today, ****ing tidy album.
    July 19 08:54 PM

    July 19 08:44 PM
  • MortimusPrime bruv look at my last 12 months on last fm they dont even ****ing make it up their. its cos they have a sick 40 sec synth track i was playing on repeat.
    July 19 08:22 PM
  • MortimusPrime lol i only have one of their albums, no idea why its still so high up. havent been listening to them regularly for like half a year. seriously, it shouldn't be that high up
    July 19 08:05 PM
  • MortimusPrime would be but i went through converge and HtB discogs so they overtook them
    July 19 07:44 PM

    July 9 10:18 PM

    July 8 10:22 PM
  • zaruyache Yeah I don't believe I've ever used bobbins as an insult, heh. Twattle or tripe or twat waffle are more my style.
    July 8 10:03 PM
  • zaruyache I have no clue since I don't have Brand New :3 I could try to find a comment about it, though...
    July 8 09:56 PM
  • zaruyache Use real words, YakNips! Uh uh uh, maybe tripe? In what context was I using this amazing word? I have no idea.
    July 8 09:47 PM
  • MortimusPrime thanks very much
    July 6 07:34 PM
  • MortimusPrime i dunno, im feeling sad again and want more emo/screamo. anything man.
    July 6 07:29 PM
  • laughingman22 sent you an email
    July 6 07:29 PM
  • MortimusPrime give me loads of modern emo recs (last 5 years)
    July 6 07:27 PM
  • XingKing Unfortunately the original release date had significance to the lyrical content but oh well. You will probably be one of my guinea pigs when it's done. I'm gonna show a few people the finished thing because I am very uncertain about the way the album flows and want outside opinions
    July 6 12:46 AM
  • XingKing I'm so far behind on my record that I can't even entertain the idea of making anything else. I recorded some new material a few days ago for the first time in like 4 months :[ I am ashamed and I'm not going to hit my deadline
    July 6 12:33 AM
  • XingKing Based on that twenty seconds, this s*** is going to be kiilllleeerrrrr
    July 6 12:31 AM
  • XingKing It sounds so ****ing good!!!
    July 6 12:24 AM
  • XingKing What in all that is holy.. Is this seriously you?!
    July 6 12:21 AM
  • XingKing I was a solid rhythm guitarist for ages, especially being in a thrash band, but I don't think I ever considered myself good or a competent writer until I had been playing for about 6 or 7 years, so don't sweat it. When are you going to unleash this new material or at least let me hear it? :p
    July 6 12:14 AM
  • XingKing About ten, maayyybe eleven years now
    July 5 11:58 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit hey man, i recently released a collabe ffort with my sister that id like to bring to your attention. reason being is that i feel the dry satire demo influenced me when writing and especially in producing the final product. feel free to judge (its in the database). peace :) http://millicentwaffles.bandcamp.com/album/sam-flow
    July 5 09:28 AM
  • jsaf7 hey, have you checked out anything by Perfume Genius? I can almost guarantee that you'd like his stuff based on your taste (and that 3 song EP that i heard from you) Check out his album "Put Your Back In 2 It) if you haven't already. I have a huge feeling you'll like or even love it..
    July 5 05:42 AM
  • ShitsofRain have fun bro http://bestillcody.bandcamp.com/album/type-7

    July 3 04:11 PM
  • Judio! Thank you sir, now my identity will remained concealed until I have fully developed my facial hair. Once that is done, I will plaster my face all over Sputnik like there is no tomorrow.
    July 3 03:12 PM
  • MortimusPrime sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet
    July 3 05:45 AM
  • jsaf7 no problem man! you sound a bit like i used to before i polished up my sound more!Viola on the second track is nice also.My most recent song is at the link below if you wanna check it out also.It's kinda like experimental hip-hop but with my own personal touch. song is 6 mins long. :-)Thanks.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7zo4cJYs5A
    July 3 03:20 AM
  • Judio! besides, sput isn't ready for my handsomeness. i believe that they will never be.
    July 3 01:49 AM
  • Judio! Would appreciate if you would kindly unav me please, in all seriousness i am very protective of my face. there's a reason I don't add many people on sput on facebook.

    July 1 11:12 PM

  • PitchforkArms hey dude listen to men as trees
    June 30 12:22 PM
  • sinisterplague So do you think then I should read lyrics to a screamo album I'm about to listen to /before/ playing it in my car or after? I'd love to read and listen at the same time, but I never have the time for that.
    June 30 11:15 AM
  • kushmemesstrikesback I am kushmemes, and I am a big fan of you. Also im skeles cousin lmango

  • TomTomato oh nice, i'll check it out. their other release was p decent. thanks!
    June 29 09:40 PM
  • TomTomato thanks m8. i def think i deserved a suspension or something because i was being dumb but it was weird that it was permanent. but yeah i'm glad i made a new account, already gotten some cool recs from here the past couple weeks
    June 29 09:31 PM
  • TomTomato i was spamming pictures of IU in some ALLB album thread while treeqt was spamming stuff too and he ended up saying something racist or antisemitic and we both got banned but mine was permanent (i guess, it doesn't really say) and his wasn't for some reason
    June 29 09:27 PM
  • TomTomato i did, but i was fairly new on that one too before i got banned http://www.sputnikmusic.com/user/breadstick

    June 29 05:39 AM
  • fromtheinside i'm sorry bae :(
    June 29 03:41 AM
  • wacknizzle Yeah dude, it's pretty sweet been jamming it alot the past 2 days. You might wanna check The Lion's Daughter And Indian Blanket's A Black Sea. It's like a morose bluesy folk band and a sludgey black metal band joined forces, it's real cool.
    June 29 12:08 AM
  • Cygnatti sweet! I think you'll dig hard so here's to hoping. :D
    June 28 10:52 PM
  • Cygnatti yaks, listen to dis album pls: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7bXWsrs_B4
    June 28 10:37 PM
  • SeaAnemone yea let me know what you think. I like it better than anything SNS or Daitro have done tbh (though obviously very different)
    June 28 08:10 PM
  • MortimusPrime i love everyu9kne. peopl.e r lovely
    June 28 08:07 PM
  • SeaAnemone wtf?? I had no idea baton rouge had something new out, I didn't think they were still doing stuff. thanks for the heads up, have you heard their debut? it's soooooo good.
    June 28 08:05 PM
  • MortimusPrime no i just got back from a party and im druni (omg perfect speling)
    June 28 08:04 PM
  • jsaf7 i will check it out and let you know what i think! thanks.
    June 27 07:18 PM
  • jsaf7 No problem at all man!! It's awesome that you're a fan of daniel johnston, glad i could give you some names! The comment below implies that you have some music, i'd love to check it out, where could i hear it?
    June 26 03:25 PM
  • JS19 Dude I had a quick listen to your new stuff - so awesome! Your vocals are waaaaay better like this. I am now suitably sads. Are you planning a full length or something anytime soon?
    June 25 09:31 AM
  • jsaf7 Yea, i love Daniel Johnston, and yea, i'd probably say Perfume Genius is similar to an extent (who i also love) Also Half Japanese is pretty similar. Wesley Willis, The Microphones, and Elliot Smith i'd say are similar as well. Were you hoping to discover new artists that are similar to him? Or were you just curious about my knowledge of him? Either way, i haven't listened to all the artists you like on here, but the ones i've listened to are great! good taste.
    June 25 07:03 AM
  • sinisterplague In your opinion, how necessary the are the lyrics to appreciating screamo?
    June 24 09:04 PM
  • ScuroFantasma Hey man, I read through the tab and it all makes sense to me. Thanks for doing it, I appreciate it.
    June 24 05:55 PM

    June 22 02:50 AM
  • wacknizzle You're one of my best friends on here dude. I'm glad to be your friend, you're a nice guy. We don't live close but If you ever wanna talk on the phone I'm here.
    June 22 02:19 AM
  • Lotus whoa it's been awhile
    June 22 12:43 AM
  • ScuroFantasma Absolutely man, that'd be great. Thanks for doing this.
    June 21 08:02 PM
  • ScuroFantasma Ah, cool. I've been playing for about 6 months now, nursery rhymes are my specialty haha. Seriously though, I'd like to see Sofistikated F*ck Princess, it's probably my favourite from your new EP. My email is: ryanfarrow@metalfan.com (yeah, that's what happens when they let you choose your own email address). I really want to expand my playing abilities, because I've been concentrating too heavily on metal and neglecting a lot of other genres.
    June 21 01:32 AM
  • ScuroFantasma Nah, it's okay man. I don't want to make any work for you or anything. I just thought that if you had tabs it'd be cool to see 'em but if you ever do make a video though, let me know cuz I'd be interested. Can I ask how long you've been playing guitar for? I'm somewhat new to it.
    June 20 08:07 PM
  • TomTomato yeah
    June 20 06:15 PM
  • JS19 I'll check it out asap dude thanks! Looking forward to it - I'll let you know what I thought when I do : )
    June 20 06:56 AM
  • ScuroFantasma Your new EP is great man, I dig it. You're vocals sound better too. Do you have tabs for your music? I'd be interested in seeing them if you do.
    June 20 05:17 AM
  • cinaedus hahaha. did you listen to my latest ep man?
    June 19 10:43 PM
  • SkaCali my pornhub membership expired yesterday, can i borrow yours?
    June 19 02:42 PM
  • GmemberKills I hope cause i bet the songs will be live exclusives that will never end up recorded lol.
    June 19 02:25 PM
  • GmemberKills Oh sweet. Bet one of the new songs is some garage rock goodness
    June 19 02:21 PM
  • GmemberKills Yeah i think it would be a sick album opener. I def like the sound and vibe of that song. Damn who posted that? there better be some live vids of it. I think sam finally realized TS is too popular not to keep making music.

  • GmemberKills That's what I'm hoping there gonna play, I'll lose it if they do. That Code Orange sounds filthy as ****. That bass is so dirty, i love it. Those abrupt pauses are like wtf tho.

  • BMDrummer Yeah, I guess you got at least somewhat over it (the content of the review), plus you don't seem to care about your approval.
    June 14 06:22 PM
  • BMDrummer Yeah, it was a bit of a worrying read. I'm kind of surprised it had no other review, but I doubt I could do it or anything like that.
    June 14 06:12 PM
  • BMDrummer Is your Teen Suicide review still serious? It was a rather strange read, despite myself being late reading it.
