    I just realized that The Dio is dead. Dammit.
    I can't believe it either. It's almost unreal.

    Bark Psychosis' Hex is clinically/scientifically proven to be the best late-night/early morning music ever conceived. The rest of their output is spectacular too.

    No mention of the excellent Poets of the Fall? (You may have heard them on the Max Payne 2 credits or several times during Alan Wake as themselves or Old Gods of Asgard) Locking Up the Sun or Given and Denied for examples ^^

    Most of my stuff is varying forms of rock/alternative, some other favourite artists off the top of my head being The Wallflowers, Starsailor, Muse, Beck, The Black Mages, The Protomen, Interpol, Kasabian etc. There's a fair few Japanese artists I really enjoy too such Ayumi Hamasaki, Bump of Chicken, Flow, High and Mighty Color.

    Sorry if that's bit boring/dull, but I do like lists rock.gif

    Listening to a LOT of Redemption (vocalist for Fates Warning Ray Alder is FINE form with this band). They slay.

    You sure? I haven't checked or anything, but I have a few friends who've got it. In any case, it's pretty great if nothing to write home about too excitedly.

    2010 is looking pretty good for music. A pretty amazing recent album from Massive Attack and awesome upcoming stuff from UNDERWORLD (absolute favourite band) and The Chemical Brothers (who I've loved since I was 8 years old).

    Enjoying the new Nevermore album "The Obsidian Conspiracy" It's different, much more progressive and moody but still heavy, a very interesting new direction for the band

    Probably because I never go to music stores anyways. If it is out, i am surprised that there hasn't been more noise about it, especially due to how popular the second was.

    I do enjoy what Gorillaz do on Youtube in regards to there marketing through it.

    Picked up this killer disc from a norwegian band called Aspera. They are in their teens and early twenties but they play like they've been doing it for decades. Those scandinavians are beasts when it comes to perfecting their instruments, and they write some really innovative stuff!

    I've been on a massive Swans kick lately. They recently reformed and released an excellent album, My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky. Possibly my favourite record of the year so far. I've also been cranking a lot of their early-mid 80s stuff. Really heavy and really really addictive. I'm currently going through their mellower mid-period stuff which is also great, but in a totally different way to the industrial grind of the early stuff.

    Am also trying to devour the massive discography of Nadja. They've released multiple albums every year for the past 5 years. Collecting is a formidible undertaking, but the music is soooooo good. I love putting my headphones on, laying back, closing my eyes and immersing myself in the veritable oceans of sound they create. Their covers are really cool too. They do a version of My Bloody Valentine's "Only Shallow" that I may actually prefer to the original (which is saying quite a lot- MBV is one of my favourite bands). Aidan Baker, one half of Nadja, also has a truckload of excellent solo releases. His sound is decidedly more ambient that Nadja's intense drone. The Sea Swells a Bit... comes highly recommended. The title track is 21 minutes of pure sonic wonder.

    I mainly listen to power/symphonic metal, especially from the South European scene. Some of my favourite bands are Rhapsody of Fire, Dark Moor, Falconer, Blind Guardian, Fairyland, Dreamaker, White Skull, Crystal Eyes, Nightwish (with Tarja), Iron Maiden and of course Manowar. Some of these aren't particularly well-known and some aren't even full-time musicians, but there are pros to that; like I can have my favourite vocalist (Elisa Mart

    I am going to see Blind Guardian this Wednesday!!! I've seen them twice and they are always a blast, and the fact that the new album SLAYS is a plus.

    Currently watching/listening to David Gilmoure: Remember That Night. A wonderful live performance at the Royal Albert Hall where he performs his entire 2006 solo album On An Island, and a ton of Pink Floyd, including the bulk of Dark Side of the Moon, and select epics rarely played, like Fat Old Sun, Shine One You Crazy Diamond in its entirety, and Echoes (yes, ECHOES!). It was also the last performance before the way too early passing of the amazing Richard Wright. Fantastic, highly recommended for anyone that likes music.

    I went to see them a few years ago when they were in Oslo.

    I don't really see the appeal of concerts though; throngs of people, high entry fees and quality of the music is a lot lower than the studio recordings, especially with metal bands as they tend to drown their vocals.

    Wow, actually came into this thread looking to discuss Gorillaz.

    They recently released a free album in time for Christmas. It was mostly recorded on an iPad, so you may wanna judge it with a rose-tinted lens.

    Okay, so who caught the grammys last night? I was extremely impressed. Cee Lo Green, Eminem, and Arcade Fire all had spectacular shows, and Mick Jagger, Muse, Esperanza Spalding and Bob Dylan did not fail to offer a little class to spice things up. The insurgents fighting on the stage below Muse was a little weird, but it was a great song, if performed a little off. Hell, even Justin Bieber(who I usually hate)did pretty damn good. I mean, he had Ninja drummers performing with him. Mind = Blown, even if you can see one mess up a backflip and limp off stage.(Breaking your back for Justin Bieber...I really hope the guy got paid well.) All in all, I loved it.

    Did anyone else?
    Madness is a complete statement. Saying more would be pointless.

    Hearing anyone mention Blind Guardian makes me wish even harder for another Demons & Wizards albumn. I dug TBTCK.

    Also, if anyone's a fan of Katatonia or to a lesser extent Opeth, you've gotta check out Ghost Brigade. New CD just came out about a month ago.

    Just saw Katatonia and Opeth on Tuesday in SF. Katatonia were incredible, and Opeth were perfect and terrible at the same time. Perfect playing, garbage setlist that consisted entirely of new stuff and bad b-sides. Not one heavy song.

    Ghost Brigade are amazing.

    That's pretty depressing about the setlist. I loved Damnation and still do, but i dunno...you'd go to Opeth and expect at least some of both, heavy and light. They're a band i want to like more than do, especially with Mikael's epic voice but honestly i rarely listen to them anymore.

    Soooo I've got an amazing concert month coming up. Roger Waters - The Wall in April, and Symphony X/Iced Earth co-headlining in February. So beyond stoked!

    New OSI cd coming out the end of March, "Fire Make Thunder". If it's half as good as Blood or Free I'll be stoked.
