Deftones: Album Baru 2010..yippie..!!

DEFTONES..
Band Nu-Metal NO.1 yang aku minati..
Aku kumpul kebanyakan albumnya..
Adrenalin, Around The Fur, White Pony..
Sekarang 2010..Diamond Eyes..
Walaupun tanpa Chi Cheng selaku bassist..
Bassist sessionist Sergio Vega bermain dalam album ini..
Aku sudah dengar beberapa single mereka…
Sound mereka sudah kembali kepada White Pony..
Rasanya mereka tidak mahu kembali pada sound Adrenaline yang lebih kepada Alternative Metal..
Album Diamond Eyes kali ini lebih berat dan catchy daripada Saturday Night Wrist..
BEST..!!

Review: Sun O))

SUN O)))

Sebuah band yang dikatakan Metal dari USA..
Jangkaan awal aku pada sound band ini adalah..
Doom..
Berat..
Kerana konsep muzik merka Drone/Doom Metal..
Tetapi setelah aku dengar beberapa album mereka..
Aku kecewa..
Riff-riff berat…tiada..
Satu album hanya ada 3-4 track sahaja..
Satu trach 10-13 minit..
Yang ada hanya bunyi-bunti dramatik..
Riff gitar hanya selang-seli..
Unsur doom…memanglah ada..
Sound quality…bunyi instrumen macam tenggelam..
Seperti recording dalam bilik bawah tanah..

Mungkin bila mereka main live, best kot..?

Sevendust: Animosity

Animosity from Sevendust..
Was one of my all time favorite Metal albums..
Basically, they play Alternative Metal..
The vocalist is an african american..
Has a very mellow RnB style of vocal..
But it fits nicely the musical heaviness..
There are many tracks that I like..
90% of the songs are catchy..
I bought this album in late 2003..
It has nostalgic sense for me..

Metal Review: Ihsahn

My Review:

Ihsahn was the key man of one of the earliest popular dark Metal bands, Emperor. He joined many bands other than Emperor such as Peccatum, Ildjarn and Zyklon-B during the rising of Scandinavian Metal together with Darkthrone and Mayhem. Definitely his principal instrument is guitar and sometimes he played keyboard.

His appearance in Emperor was a legend in Metal world and personally I regard Emperor as one of the great dark Metal bands in the world besides its legendary aura.

Emperor came with the last full album ‘Prometheus – The Discipline of Fire & Demise on 2001 and they split up.

Ihsahn has started a band using his own name ‘Ihsahn’, bringing a new concept which is called Extreme Progressive Metal. He focuses more on progressive notes arrangements and semi-heavy guitar riff.

The albums:

The Adversary Full-length, 2006
angL Full-length, 2008
After Full-length, 2010

Remember, in Metal,  love the heavy music but discard all the negative things..

Band: Decapitated / Song: Nihility (Live)

Album paling baru yang paling akhir dari band Decapitated ini ialah pada 2006 berjudul Organic Halucinosis. Decapitated adalah sebuah band Brutal Death Metal yang sangat teknikal dari sudut riff gitar dan hentaman dram double paddle mereka.

Sound Metal  mereka memang tersendiri, berbeza dengan style Brutal Death Metal Suffocation, Malevolent Creation dan Emeth. Riff mereka berat dan laju tetapi mempunyai pattern sangat catchy dan seronok didengar walaupun overall muzik mereka bukan kategori yang bermelodi merdu. Permainan snare drum yang bervariasi antara sederhana dan laju sangat matching dengan riff gitar. Pergghh..

Bagi orang yang tidak boleh terima muzik Metal lebih-lebih lagi kategori Brutal Death Metal susah hendak memahami perkara ini. Hanya ‘Metalhead’ (peminat Metal) sahaja yang tahu menghargai keunikannya..

Apa-apa pun, Music is just music, not an obsession”. Buang yang negatif, ambil yang positif..”

Tak sabar menunggu album terbaru mereka..

I’ve just recently listened to the whole new album from this creative band and the impression was really good. Here come the progressive songs from a very young and talented progressive band..
