Digging: Lush - Gala
nothing like a bunch of 50 yr old men making a song called anarchy up your anus
It's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it.
"nothing like a bunch of 50 yr old men making a song called anarchy up your anus"
Not any kind of men, but specifically 50 yr old rich men.
Ugh why does it have to be death metal
Why not something cool like California, but different
Digging: Dr. John - In the Right Place
because they were never going to come back unless they could piss off over half the fanbase
it's kind of beautiful, really
Haha this is Patton all over, song rips.
Digging: Napalm Death - Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism
"Haha this is Parton all over, song rips."
yeah got big Dolly vibes from this
This seriously ruins though, hot daammmnn.
sick riffs m/
Video looks like something that would've come out back in 2007.
Cool song titles. Should be good.
so does this bring them full-circle? started out with this, then end with this re-recording? I mean, I don't think McKinnon & Lengyel are gonna come back for a remake of Bowel of Chiley, Goddammit I Love America, or OU818... watch Scott Ian's a closet jazzhead n busts out the trombone-sax-tuba combo device... but he calls it.. "The Brass Knuckle"! *buh, dum - tss* but anyway, this should be interesting - hopefully has a 'metal production' instead of a rock one
straight up dethklok lyrics
For someone who grew up listening to "Disco Volante", I can't deny I'm curious.
It's not like they were going to go through another writing process again with each other. They definitely had some kind of falling out that caused them to stop working together, so it makes sense they'd just re-record an old demo instead of giving us new music.
"so does this bring them full-circle? started out with this, then end with this re-recording?"
pretty much. they said something along the lines of being huge Slayer fans back in the 80s, with them being a huge inspiration for the original demo tape, so actually having members of Slayer in a re-recording process of that actual demo tape is a pretty good way to "bring it on home," so to speak
so this is re-recorded songs that they wrote before or demos from that time? article seems unclear
Digging: En Minor - When The Cold Truth Has Worn Its Miserable Welcome
it's basically just a re-recording of their '86 demo. When they were on tour they just played these thrash songs from that era.
Digging: Obliteration - Cenotaph Obscure
its surprising they remember the songs
i dunno man these are the same guys who were able to reproduce Disco Volante songs live
Is the opening supposed to sound a bit like Cowboys from Hell?
it predates Pantera's thrash era so no.
Epic, sick production as well.
Boring by the numbers thrash with some good vocals and a few interesting riffs. Drums are painfully generic.
Digging: Deftones - Ohms
Thanks zaruyache, I never read the article, just listened and commented after hearing the similarities!
All I know is Patton hasn't lost it.
Nice, this song is pretty good.
Bunch of musicians well into their 50s decide to revive their old band, which had a cult following for being experimental and switching genres mid-song, and instead of writing a new experimental opus they re-record their old high school thrash demo with little actual changes from the original material except for tighter production and different drumming. Sounds about right.
They've earned the right to make or remake whatever music they damn well please.
If 2020 had a saving moment, it's this
Its not California or disco volante but it still fuckin rules.
That was okay. Kind of a huge bummer that it's not going to be experimental and poppy like California jl n nmbhk
"For someone who grew up listening to "Disco Volante", I can't deny I'm curious."
well, they're not gonna match the greatest album of all-time with a deathy crossover album written 34 yrs. ago in their teens - but this album will be a wild beast in its own straight-forward right... hopefully will be a stepping-stone to more avant-garde territory once again - however, as someone here said, the burnt bridges from the taxing multi-tracking hell that was "California", will likely take 9 fire-hoses full of toilet water to put out...
isn't them not being predictable by making super experimental music actually very in line with their ethos? it actually makes them more experimental
