  • Voivod I'm surprised too... That Patrick Rondat dude nailed it though, one of the unsung heroes of guitar shredding... He was a session member in Jan Michel Jarre's touring band.

  • dannyboy89 Dude, do you Mastodon?
    March 31 12:50 AM
  • LordPots k cool i dont like people thinking im actually gonna hunt them down and murder them its all just the enigmatic potsy persona. oh wait i think i remember that actually i remember liking it but the vocals not being for me i think. and yeah it seems we have very little musical crossover tbh, altho my ratings on this aren't too reflective since ive mostly only rated stuff ive heard since returning. my silentpotato chart would have been a better indicator
    March 21 12:49 AM
  • LordPots dude u need to not take ME so seriously! lighten up its all jokes, get to know me before you judge what you don't know! i don't think we've ever spoken before though which is trippy because ive been here since '06 so sup buddy im potsy
    March 21 12:40 AM
  • dannyboy89 What's your opinion of Frusciante's guitar playing?
    March 20 02:16 AM
  • dannyboy89 UMOK hasn't aged well with me man. Some great tracks, but some filler as well. My faves on there are prob Incessant Mace, All Your Lies and Head Injury.
    March 16 01:46 AM
  • dannyboy89 Yeah, it rules hard. I'll see if I can jam it again tomorrow to rate.
    March 13 01:00 AM
  • dannyboy89 Dude, you need to check TAD - Inhaler ASAP (if you haven't already). Awesome album, jamming it atm and it rules face.
    March 12 10:00 PM
  • OmairSh I was revisiting Leprous material over the past few days so I'm a little too eager :P. From the University of Windsor in Canada.
    March 12 02:25 AM
  • OmairSh Just a taste of Bilateral http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Thorn/4AaVGn?=5, http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Bilateral/4AaV9u?=5. It's definitely an acquired taste. It's so hard to choose representative songs, I always think of it as more of an album, even though the songs are very distinct. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fi8NyQvhCUc, ****ing VOCALS dude. http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Dare You/3cpZPG?=5. Link overload I know, my bad.
    March 12 02:20 AM
  • OmairSh Oh yeah I recall that conversation to a certain extent. Oooh lawyer, how long have you been practising for?
    March 12 01:18 AM
  • OmairSh http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=986iAyQpr1U, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9o2nVY8FZ0
    March 12 01:11 AM
  • OmairSh I'm doing my MBA currently. You? I'm addicted to this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpeVv9FK_mQ. Btw if you haven't heard Leprous you need to check Bilateral, one of the most important modern younger prog metal bands. TPS is a bit more accessible (very relative term). Their music takes a few more listens compared to prog metal albums even, but they're very rewarding listens.
    March 12 01:09 AM
  • OmairSh Aight I'll hopefully get round to it soon. Yeah pretty much the same going on at my end. I was listening to Freak Kitchen a few days back
    March 12 12:42 AM
  • OmairSh Prog metal, well I'm already in that mood so I might check it out. I'm listening to Haken currently. What's been up?
    March 12 12:21 AM
  • manosg Hey dude. Yeah, I just took a look at your reviews and it's normal that I haven't read any other of your stuff besides Buckingham Nicks as I'm not so much into those albums. Anyway, you write really well man, keep it up!
    March 10 11:37 AM
  • dannyboy89 It's a cool cover dude, can't really nitpick much.
    March 7 12:41 AM
  • dannyboy89 Hearing the cover atm. Is that you singing?
    March 7 12:10 AM
  • dannyboy89 Alrighty.
    March 6 11:11 AM
  • dannyboy89 I saw that you had only 5's, 4's, 3's, 2's and 1's; so I imagined they wered.

    March 5 11:42 PM
  • SharkTooth I have never heard periphery in my life,I just enjoy the threads
    February 20 09:02 AM
  • dannyboy89 I've learned over time that being technically skilled =/= being great. Paul Gilbert is extremely talented, for example, but I wouldn't say he's among my faves.
    February 19 01:10 PM
  • dannyboy89 What's your opinion of Billy Corgan's guitar playing?
    February 19 12:05 AM
  • manosg You're correct. I used to practice a lot a couple of years ago but gradually I played less and less to the point that I haven't touched my guitar for 6 months or so. The thing is that I do play some songs but I need to learn to play properly (ie. learn chords, chord changes, etc.) and it seems a bit tedious to me at this point. I really hope to find the drive to do that in the future though.
    February 7 05:51 AM
  • manosg haha! Good job man, I wish I had the tenacity to sit down and learn to play a few stuff on guitar. I play some guitar but nothing much actually.
    February 6 02:32 PM
  • dannyboy89 I sometimes think he has a know-it-all attitude and cares little for other people's opinions. I may be wrong though.
    January 31 01:53 AM
  • dannyboy89 Out of curiosity, do you think Nag is a bit arrogant?
    January 30 09:41 AM
  • dannyboy89 If you ask me, I'd tell you to jam their first 3 records, in reverse order. Given that you love SG, AiC and other bands influenced by them, they might grow on you. It's all taste though.
    January 27 12:01 PM
  • dannyboy89 By the way, do you listen to Black Sabbath?
    January 27 12:37 AM
  • dannyboy89 Nice to see SWoD 5'd, that album is amazing.
    January 27 12:19 AM
  • Wizard Hahaha far from an angry person, I just call out useless users as I see them ; ).But seriously, you will get to know me over time and realize I'm pretty quick to admit I'm over the top. No hard feelings dude. Cheers!

    January 3 01:44 AM
  • dannyboy89 Jamming Superunknown atm, fantastic album. Which band do you think had the best riffs: AiC or SG? Or, do you think it's a tie?
    December 30 02:25 PM
  • dannyboy89 I think SD and LS are 1 and 2 respectively, but that could change.
    December 19 09:19 PM
  • dannyboy89 Nope, I'm taking a different approach. I started with Deadwing, and worked my way backwards to SD. Afterwards, I'm thinking of jamming FOABP and The Incident, and then get to the earlier stuff. Weird, but yeah.
    December 19 02:40 PM
  • dannyboy89 I see you love PT. I'm redescovering their discog, and starting to appreciate it more.In Absentia is definitely a more fantastic album than I gave it credit for, although SD rules hard too. What's your opinion about PT up to Signify?
    December 19 02:38 AM
  • OmairSh I had a feeling it was probably you. Dam dude I feel useless for not being able to play any instrument. Cool man, which instruments do you play?
    December 12 01:47 PM
  • OmairSh I just heard superman returns, pre good song. Who is this?
    December 8 07:58 PM
  • FearThyEvil9 I find them gimmicky, that's all I meant by that. I never said they're the worst band ever. If you noticed too, someone asked my why I disliked the band. I simply explained why and that's when people went bats*** insane.
    December 7 04:07 AM
  • FearThyEvil9 "That was a terrible joke. I bet your muzik suxxxxx!!!" Man, you seriously don't know when to stop do you? Not even what I meant in my comment and it's still the ONLY thing you bring up. I don't like the band, why are you being so defensive over the fact I'm not a fan?
    December 6 01:38 AM
  • OmairSh Dude screw Jolly, check my list!
    October 27 11:15 PM
  • OmairSh :-/, I needed a change of scenery (blasphemy I know)
    October 1 01:55 AM
  • OmairSh you get promo copies of some albums?
    August 26 06:00 AM
  • OmairSh Haha, dude you already have a girlfriend, be grateful
    August 22 01:23 PM
  • OmairSh Ah Cinaedus (Lakes), yeah he had that avatar before my first MEW one :P, but I'll spare his head, I've had enough killing for a while :P
    August 16 03:30 AM
  • OmairSh Yeah for sure, GRRM will be more hated than joffrey at this rate. Yeah the series has depth and oddly enough with all the money being thrown into the series it still feels very grounded imo. I mean people love it but I don't see the actors getting the fame like other mainstream tv series actors. And I like that about the show, its probably the greatest show of our era and yet it seems as if the actors don't realise it and hence don't embrace it.
    August 16 03:30 AM
  • OmairSh Taylor Swift song for GOT http://i.perezhilton.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/post-20829-game-of-thrones-starks-we-are-yoix__oPt.jpg
    August 16 02:40 AM
  • OmairSh And "Cinaedus is making a play for your girl" ?
    August 16 02:35 AM
  • OmairSh Season 3 was picking up and then BAM, red fuking wedding. Its like, the main characters are celebrating and are all happy, Aryas close to meeting her brother and mother, Sansa's in a better predicament than when she was marrying joffrey, and you're just thinking okay they're getting close to reaching the Lannisters, but will prob reach Kings Landing in Season 4 and then....... Fuk me
    August 16 02:30 AM
  • OmairSh Yeah Robb was boring, not as boring as snow imo, but he was. The only reason his death was so painful was becasue he was supposed to avenge Ned. I've loved Cat from the beginning, she's had this incredible grace and presence that few characters have in the show. Dude Theons always been a shady mother fuker to me, insecure b itch. Yeah I think the villains are normally more interesting anyway, take batman for instance. Season 2 was a drop in quality from season 1, it picked up at the end
    August 16 02:28 AM
  • OmairSh Yeah and naming Robbs unborn son after Sean's character was just asking for trouble.
    August 16 12:48 AM
  • OmairSh http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxoOEy6IquI to lighten the mood
    August 16 12:27 AM
  • OmairSh Also if you had waited for teh books to be completed you would be waiting another decade :P. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK. I never imagined getting this upset over a series. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVWpN6W9Cj8,,,,,,,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMiTOtBjcYw,,,,,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncrWkvcrBHM
    August 16 12:25 AM
  • OmairSh DUUUUUUUUDEE why the fuuk did you read first?! Its strange now that I look back, there was no way that Robb was going to survive, he had more than 5 arrows in him, but it just shows how much I hoped he would survive SOMEHOW, I mean we NEEDED him and Cat. But GRRM has some fuking balls to kill of leads like this while barely hurting the villains. Fuking hell. Jon Snows the most boring character dude and he's going to be one of the main leads now along with Arya and Tyrian. Fuuuuk dude just fuuuk
    August 16 12:24 AM
  • OmairSh Well I have good people around me luckily. But **** dude intense doesn't even begin to describe those last horrific 7 minutes. I mean I've never felt like that while watching anything on a screen. WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUK DUDE. I nearly cried. I mean how does a book/show keep repeatedly ****ing the lead cast up the ass like this?!! And Cat was my favourite character so it was a huge blow, and its a HUGE blow for the show in general..... **** my God that was too much to handle in 7 minutes.
    August 15 10:56 PM
  • OmairSh Haha, wel sorrrryy a brother just wanted to have some fun :D. But nah I don't like spoiling stuff, actually I just watched the red wedding a couple of days back and needed to bitch about it :-(. My friends and family watched it when it was released and so they're over it. I need to vent properly dude. FUUUUUUCK!!!!!!
    August 15 10:45 PM
  • OmairSh You up to date?
    August 15 10:26 PM

    August 7 07:13 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah I meant concerts in general, Leprous are gone now ddue :P, but its not like its fun going to a concert when you haven't heard anything from the band so its aight, maybe next time.
    August 7 03:41 PM
  • OmairSh Dam so if its on a weekend you can travel right? Yeah check em out and this is from their latest album http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fi8NyQvhCUc, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9o2nVY8FZ0 VOCALS OMG!!!
    August 7 12:18 AM
  • OmairSh Yeah she's posted......On the dark side of the moon. Well it was a one in a million chance of her name being Sana, yeah, there is no Sana sorry dude couldn't resist XD. Oooh into the older gals eh? Haha yeah they dress like a modern mainstream rock band but definitely don't judge this book by the cover. And I'm starting to like their fashion sense :D. But let them sink in, they take a while
    August 6 08:55 PM
  • OmairSh Dude if her names Sana then holler, I can get you hooked, she's an old friend.
    August 6 08:24 PM
  • OmairSh OH YEAH WTF DUDE! See you guys get the great bands coming for concerts, even Mekaal Hasan recently toured India and he hasn't performed in pak for years, so you win! This is what you missed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mt6cEqtvUHM
    August 6 08:24 PM

    August 6 06:31 PM
  • Underflow Somewhat amusing how Karnivool's major criticism was not having their own sound, and now that they've found it, they've been greeted with their lowest rated album. Obviously a 3.8 still indicates large acclaim, but it's still funny to me lol.
    July 24 10:04 AM
  • Antonius Thanks Sitar. You must admit the similarities bro! :)
    July 24 06:15 AM
  • Underflow I'd just ignore them, man. Intelligent conversation is a rare commodity on Sputnik, unfortunately, and talking to them won't change anything.

    July 12 08:36 AM
  • Piglet allan donald? damn yeah, him and pollock were my favourite saffasyeah yeah i know what you mean, i could barely hit a ball for my life two years ago but just practising every day works wonders. the back injury has been a bit of a blessing because now that it's good again i can bat, bowl leggies and swing it both ways where do you live though?
    July 6 11:09 AM
  • discharge0 your taste is gross
    July 5 01:26 PM
  • Piglet hey, if you're short you might as well admire malcolm marshall the other legendary quick west indian bowler! short fast bowlers tend to make the ball skid on which makes up for taller bowlers getting awkward bouncenah yeah i used to be a swing bowler but my back broke down this year, i'm pretty much just a batsmen now!
    July 5 12:14 PM
  • Piglet hahahah man, curtly is king!! are you a fast bowler then or something?
    July 5 10:38 AM
  • Piglet WHAT THE **** HOW DID YOU KNOW IT WAS HIM?!?!??? what???? BULLs***!! i thought no one would get it

  • dannyboy89 I see you like Hendrix. It's interesting to note that even Josh Homme cites him as an influence, even with all the time passed after his death.

    June 24 01:33 PM
  • dannyboy89 And Thayil's and Cantrell's riffs are better than Gossard's imo. But McCready's one of my fave lead players.
    June 21 01:16 AM
  • dannyboy89 I'll admit that both your top bands have/had better bassists than PJ at the least. Mike Starr ruled, and SG has some cool bass grooves here and there.
    June 20 08:14 PM
  • dannyboy89 So, how would you rank the Big 4? PJ is my fave, followed by SG and AiC. As some might already know, I'm not a big Nirvana fan, only care for some songs on Nevermind.
    June 20 01:19 PM
  • dannyboy89 I see you like grunge. Interesting.
    June 19 02:10 AM
  • DatsNotDaMetulz Yeah man I'm looking into getting tickets, if I can get them I'll message the band page about bringing over a CD.
    June 17 06:48 PM

  • greg84 I like it, but I expected more. It's a bit of a letdown for me.
    May 28 06:01 AM
  • tempest-- Well aside from the obvious production, mixing and mastering issues, the verse vocal melody and rhythm could be improved, simply by changing things around. The pre-chorus and chorus itself I found quite enjoyable, and the soloing is good, but I would remove the clean/soft bit just before it. Also I would add in some sort of bridge (along with the solo section). Solid beginnings though! :-]
