Whoops! Unintentionally skipped this part and started posting comm

Recommended Posts

...so figured better late than never..

Hi all, I originally stumbled across the forum by chance as I'd spotted a post about Raw Silk and wanted to join in the conversation as I have a close connection to the current line up of the band.

As I :

1.Love debating and discussing stuff (given the chance I'll question and query practically any subject to death) and

2. LOVE music and am always wanting to find out new good pieces of any genre to add to my collection

I figured this site could well have it all!

 

I don't stick to any particular genre but generally speaking my collection is a range of tracks from rock, country, folk and classical.

Raw Silk, Storm Engine, Porcupine Tree, A Perfect Circle, NFAB, Merrymouth = bands I'm loving at the moment

Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Bob Dylan, Dire Straits = some of my old classics.

 

Not a big fan of rap or contemporary jazz but I wouldn't write anything off completely without giving it a chance.

 

Thanks for being so welcoming and not telling me off for posting without introducing myself first

Yaaay! Will check that out for sure. (Ah, my husband just said they've been promising that for the last 5years.) Maybe the fans need to start a campaign going! :whip:

I could have sworn I posted in this thread. But welcome aboard. Good to have one of the ladiez on board. Though, fyi, Karpetface much prefers his women... well, if they're men. He prefers men. Mostly sexually, so as a poster on this forum I think you're in the clear. ;)

I think you might find it's the other way around. If you were to ask the members on this site, they'd likely tell you I am one of the more chill posters (maybe even poser ;}) here.

Truu. I often have to find my own excitement. Sadly, trolling Aussies seems to do it for me.

Is that really the way you see yourself? A "chill poser?" You're definitely a poussuer - no doubt about that. And I guess you think because you listen to funk and that solo artist, Jamiroquai, that you're in some way "chill?" Ha, you poussueuer.

 

How can you relax when you're constantly dreading what happens when you meet Jesus and he's all like, 'Hey man, what's up with you drinking all those IPA's? Don't you know drinking alcohol is prohibited by the Lord and me. I hate you. You've been a bad christian. You're not allowed into Heaven because I think you swore once on that music forum too. Sorry you wasted your life being christian."

 

'Cause you know he's got his eye on you, man. Stop chilling so much and fear your lord.

 

And fight me.

Had me looking up "pousseur" which I believe is what you meant.

 

Oh, and Jesus don't care about that, 'cause he swore, and his first miracle was turning water into wine. So I think I'm good. ;}

    • I know, I know. We all know the answer but still I have to ask: So what happened to the "Cessation of Touring Contract" by the Crue?
    • Whoah... much better than I expected before clicking on them. Reminds me vocally of a lighter version of Lizzy Borden crossed with Rob Moratti. I'm going to have to track this one down.
    • from various internet sources: TYGERS OF PAN TANG will release their new album, “Ritual”, next Friday, while this Japanese edition including a bonus track appeared today. This is the band’s second recording by the current Tygers lineup, recorded with the help of renowned Søren Andersen, most recently known for his role as Glenn Hughes’s guitarist. Mastering done by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem). Tygers Of Pan Tang is a legendary band with some legendary albums, but I’m dare to say “Ritual” is one of their best. There’s a classic melodic hard rock feel all over the record, with some irresistible riffing, powerful grooves and catchy choruses. The mastermind here is original member, guitarist Robb Weir. The band’s current phase proves as formidable as its heyday, with longtime drummer Craig Ellis, vocalist Jacopo Meille, bassist Gavin Gray and guitarist Micky Crystal. “Ritual” wastes no time in stampeding the listener with the bursting “Worlds Apart,” one of the heaviest tunes on the album. Fair warning though – the straight forward chorus can stick in your mind for weeks, like a modern day version of “Gangland.” This isn’t the only instance on “Ritual,” this is an album chock full of hook laden rockers. “Destiny” slides in and the ride continues with a soulful voice. The pounding percussion is back and the riff are melodic, precise. The lyrics are thoughtful, and well written, and do tell a story, unlike many of these so-called hits of today in those other genres that just repeat over and over again. Slipping into the triple-twist of the steam train you’re on, comes, “Rescue Me“. There’s a simple riff and hook that becomes infectious, and still has you in its clutches. The vocals, clear and understandable, will have you singing along before you realize you’re doing it. The track that will “Raise Some Hell” is definitely the hidden gem on the record. This has got to be a live track used to get the crowd worked into a frenzy. Fast-paced, and rockin’ as hell. Screaming vocals, a rocket train paced guitar, and drums to match. If this song doesn’t get you off your backside and have your fist-pounding, then shut off the record and go back to your BackStreet Boys, because you’re listening to the wrong music! As this roller coaster continues, you reach the point where you just don’t wanna get off yet, and hope the rest is just as exciting. Luckily, you would be right. “Spoils Of War” might be the most melodic song of the bunch, but this midtempo still rocks hard and the solo kills. Masterfully played track. After a few more thrills, and twists, you know the ride is gaining its way to the final gate, but don’t take the safety bar off just yet. “The Art Of Noise” has yet another trick that will have you raising your fists into the air, and trying to catch your breath once again. Hang on, because you still have to “Sail On” until the end. Maybe not the most exciting part of this ride, but still an effective end. Clear concise vocals and equally as good playing from the rest of the Tygers are ever-present here. So sit back, and enjoy this last bit of this “Ritual” and to hell with keeping your arms and legs inside the ride at all times. “Ritual” may be the bast sounding Tygers album since 1981’s Spellbound, but don’t take me wrong, it’s still a fresh new album that stands on its own. You couldn’t ask for a more beautifully produced album. Presenting a top notch mix and crystal clear recording, the use of modern technology pays homage to the band’s legacy without succumbing to a thin lifeless sound. And songwriting is just as strong, as each musician performance. One of the best classic rock / traditional hard / melodic albums of the year. Raise those fists, and enjoy. Highly Recommended Tracklist: 01 – Worlds Apart 02 – Destiny 03 – Rescue Me 04 – Raise Some Hell 05 – Spoils of War 06 – White Lines 07 – Words Cut Like Knives 08 – Damn You! 09 – Love Will Find a Way 10 – Art of Noise 11 – Sail On JAPAN BONUS TRACK: 12 – Don’t Touch Me There (2019 Version) Robb Weir – Guitars Craig Ellis – Drums Jack Meille – Vocals Gavin Gray – Bass Micky Crystal – Guitars   BUY IT www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/MICP-11527

    • Don't miss it. They're still amazing live. 
    • Is he really more and more in demand? Or is it simply signing with Frontiers means he is producing?
    • https://meramecmusictheatre.tix.com/Event.aspx?EventCode=1154903 Me & my mom might go together! 
    • Heard of Kane only from the band LSD and I have no clue who the other person is.
