favorite bands
Bon Jovi 2020
scariest album cover of all time hands down.

the album itself is okay, it is very much boomer rock, which will be a turnoff for a lot of
people. the lyrics are kinda head-scratching though. Very light 3.
Machine Gun Kelly Tickets to My Downfall
what is with the trend of rappers making terrible pop-punk albums? at least this one was somewhat competent instrumentally
Scandal (JPN) Scandal Show
I mean its a decent compolation, but it feels like it came out away too soon in the bands career
King Gnu's "Ceremony" is a not so blatant carbon copy of other
successful mainstream J-pop/J-rock that is not worth celebrating ((I am honestly shocked this
sold platinum in japan)
The Birthday Massacre Diamonds
I did not expect to be punched in the face by an album in this style, but here we are.
Dir En Grey MISSA
the first release from DEG lays perfectly the blueprints of what would become their debut release (it does take a massive page of inspiration to Luna Sea too). People who know them from their post-Vulgar output are going to be surprised though)
Dir En Grey GAUZE
Is this album overrated? slightly, the first half can be slightly unmemorable, however the album really picks up with "Tsumi to Batsu" and oh man is the rest of the album from that point really damn good, like really really back good. The Polished production from X-japans Yokashi really helps this album in a big way and helps makes songs like "mazohyst of decadence" even more unsettling. It is hard to say you will hear something like it at the time it came out and i can see why many VK bands tried to use the sound from this album at one point or another in their career.

  • TheSonomaDude I'm sorry you had to check it out lol, I actually got in touch with the rapper vocalist and he seems very cool but is openly embarrassed by Lie Or Liar

  • TheSonomaDude To answer your question, I don't really have another suggestion for your nu-metal list. Their EP used to be online but upon further inspection it seems the vocalistd their entire facebook and bandcamp pages a few years back. However, every song on the EP can still be found invidiually on YouTube. It goes: 1. PARANOIC 2. Forget My Name 3. D1RT 4. This Is Permenent 5. Broken 6. Monster (Eminem cover). They're all on the LoL youtube page but song 6, but if you search 6 it's uploaded

  • DaHound Yeah I mean I know people don't like him so it's all good. Maybe it helps that I got into him in high school and it was kinda right place right time haha. The lengths are a bit overblown but I've always preferred long albums in general and I would rather hear any material I can from an artist than not.

  • DaHound ... and it was all over from there. Idk I just adore his voice I think he's such a talented singer and if you look beyond the autotune you can hear it. Anyway that's my life story thanks for listening.

  • DaHound ... from serviceable to great. We may have different definitions of this lol. I can see why the length could definitely put off someone not into him, it definitely did for me at first. My first album of his was Heartbreak and I gave up only probably 8 tracks in because I didn't really dig it. I only listened to it because I was listening to the R. Kelly feature and just let it play. I returned a couple months later and I still wasn't totally feeling it but a little later something just clicked..
