MUSE has long been regarded as one of my favorite bands and, much like fellow enth-MUSE-iasts (bad pun, I know), I was worried about the quality of their upcoming sixth album: The 2nd Law. Coming out tomorrow in select European countries and everywhere else the beginning of October, I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on it so I decided to listen to one of the leaks of the album and write my initial thoughts on a track-by-track basis to share, much like what I did for Nine Inch Nails’ Year Zero years back.
Yesterday, one of my absolute favorite bands decided to call it quits. Ween was born in 1984 after Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo met in 8th grade and since then has evolved from two kids screwing around with sounds into a very competent and, dare I say, genius musical project. Taking on the psuedonyms of Gene […]
Eight months. It was eight months ago that tickets to Video Games Live were put up on sale. For the first few weeks it was hard to believe the day would ever come at all but as the thought of the day made its way to the corner of our mind, time sped itself along […]
Since first listening to this CD via the “leaked” copies on the internet for the past few weeks, I swore to myself I wasn’t going to review it because I really didn’t want to. So here we are, Saturday night at 21:38 with shit all to do except sit on the goddamn internet and my plans have changed. I don’t know any better ways to go about this, so let’s just jump in…
It is approximately 1:20pm Toronto time when we finally get to the Air Canada Center to line up to pick up our Spiral Tickets, which we were told would be given out at 1:30. After about an hour of waiting, the line of previously discouraged and rather confused members of the fanclub begins to move […]
Not So Pretty Now was performed live the other night and I have been able to get a copy of the bootleg from a friend. I must say, while not as bad as the little clip of it led me to believe it would be, but I still think its probably the worst NIN song […]
Finally I get to see Reznor and his band of merry-men in my hometown. We get to the venue at about 14:00 and wait in the spiral members line to get our tickets. Finally Brandy comes out at about 15:00 and starts giving us (about 50 of us) our tickets. Then we wait again. We […]
Just got back from the concert in Edmonton. All-in-all, the DFA1979 set was the same pretty much, Queens was MUCH better and Toronto had the better NIN set (replacing The Collector with Starfuckers Inc.?! Come the fuck on). A few highlights:-Josh Homme makes fun of some “fat guy in a pink shirt” who gives him […]
