Skold - Anomie


Recommended Posts

Anybody that still likes Tim Skold, his latest album is sick, it doesn't have any true standout tracks like Hail Mary, or Remember, but it's a collectively solid album, and he brings in some pretty sick guitar riffs on a few of the songs, which is something he hasn't had since departing company with Harry Cody, if you like him check this disc out.

You are really the first person out of my metal breatheran to recognize and see the debut Skold album like I do, I used to HATE!!! Electronic music, since I got into audio production, and audio using a computer, I have dove into electronic programming, problem was I used to hate it, cause I never really knew anything about it, not like I could ever in a million years afford anything remotely close to learn programming, all that shit is and was big time bucks, since Ive been learning on a computer, I started listening to stuff like Ministry, KMFDM, and Skold as a reference to know what Synths and Drum Machines made which sounds, turns out so many classic albums use alot of these old Synths, which are now all replicated by genius software, and they sound identical to the actual original, it's all very cool shit, i think, the debut Skold album was something of a 1st as far as I know, there's plenty of electronic music out there, but I had never heard someone crossover from melodic rock\metal, with industrial\electronic, it was always either or, not like Tim Skold did, and this new album is a lot like the debut, only hes got an actual guitarist, now I don't know who it is, cause I haven't read the liner, i skimmed thru it and didn't see any guitar credits, which might mean its Tim playing guitar as well, but from the 1st track to the last, every effort was made to not only fill songs with killer guitar riffs that were metal, but there's actually some very catchy metal riffs, you all might actually like? I don't know check it out, find some samples and listen, i mean i don't think anybody's getting their mind changed with this, if you don't like Skold, then you wont like Skold, but check it out none the less.

I've never got into other Industrial bands but then again I've never taken the time to listen to many of them but being a Shotgun Messiah fan I bought Skold's debut blindly and have always enjoyed it. The only other cd I have in that genre is the Stephen Pearcy/Al Pitreli project Vertex. That one is okay but not great like the Skold IMO.

    • Pretty crazy, what's going on in China at the moment. Thank goodness you'd never see something like that happen in Austra- oh. Uh, as you were. There must be plenty of videos like this out and about at the moment- ย  ย 
    • Haha, a couple of you guys keeping pretty quiet about changed minds on synthwave, after being pretty vocal about how terrible it is/was? I must say, I never got into the dark synth stuff like Dance With The Dead... more for the fact that I need vocals with the synthwave I really dig. I've actually heard a few dark synth bands this year I've passed on, with vocals, that I wonder if there'd be interest in here? Just gotta try to remember who they were...ย  As for the best of the year, not sure what to make of this year. There's an absolute tonne of good to very good albums, but when I look at the top end I'm not exactly blown away by any amazing albums. Good ones, and a lot of really excellent songs this year... but my highest rated album this year is 82%... which is a good album, but nothing looks like even threatening the 90% mark this year, which seems extremely unusual. The best of last year, for instance, seems a lot better than the best of this year. Still, I can't complain as there's been a lot of good music... just not as many great entire albums.ย 
    • Another band ruined by frontiers.
    • Yeah, sad news. Even though she was a quiet achiever in that group with Stevie getting most of the attention, she sings Lead on two of my favourite "Fleetwood Mac" tracks. "Little Lies" is a Killer. R.I.P. ย  ย  ย 
    • For me, "Run-D.M.C." in '88 on their "Tougher Than Leather" tour when I was 16. A bit left field, but I loved these guys in my early teens. They weren't afraid to embrace Hard Rock guitars in their music. ย  ย 
    • I was there too mate. You can't beat the atmosphere of a concert "in the round". I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.
    • Keep a lid on itย 
    • This one looks like a fun ride.... ย 
    • I keep sticking with the band but my initial thoughts are that this is basically hookless. I sure hope this was just released as the first single cause it is loud and fast and isn't considered the best song on the upcoming album.
