If you like Maynard, here is his cover of King Crimson's 21st Century Schizoid Man



EDIT: Be warned. Crimson isn't exactly mainstream Metal / Rock. In fact, they've gained wide-spread popularity despite little-to-none radio / video airplay. They are not commercial and don't sound it the least bit. So it takes a little time to start liking them. They sort of grow on you if you stick around. If you don't mind that sort of thing.

A powerful Kamelot album Silverthorn, with a new vocalist.
(Oct release)

The new vocalist seems like twin of Roy!

Noq with the iTunes store now available in India, its much easier to lay your hands on the new releases!

I have noticed that my 90HP Punto gains a few additional horses these days as soon as Pantera starts playing "Mouth For War".

I remember my hero ranger also captured a few steeds when I put on the Grammy tape and Metallica's take on stone cold crazy came up.

I was too busy tending to my own little thrasher who came into this world on Oct 12. People say you mellow with age and then being a parent etc, I don't think that's gonna happen to me though.
Congratulations!!! Megadave actually took the time to interact with the audience and that added to the whole experience. The sound, lights and the entire set up this time was way better than the Bangalore show.

I did go for Independence Rock this year and it was terrible. I managed to catch Blackstratblues (decent), Brahma (atrocious) and Pentagram (great performers but I don't dig the music).

Finally was able to get my hands on the Rick Wright Solo release Broken China.
Amazing Flyodian spirit with rich tones. The quiet guys surprises with brilliant music

So the Fly Music festival is happening in Delhi on the 16th and 17th Feb. Among other bands, Anthrax, Mastodon and Deep Purple will be playing. Interestingly, there is a trackday in BIC on the 17th as well.

Delhi gets all the goodies dosen't it? Headbang on the 16th, racetrack on the 17th. My Manager is going to get a transfer request to New Delhi soon if this trend continues.

Its pretty decent. After all its Van Halen! As I said earlier thanks to iTunes store, buying them is very easy and one need not resort "other" means. Hardly 100-150 /- for the albums and that too the latest ones!

Angry re: The Heavy Metal & Rock Thread

I came across this article recently and I am very disappointed (to say the least) to know that few of my favorite bands have used music inspired by other lesser known bands and have not bothered to give credits where its due.

P.S: I have not gone through all 60 pages of discussion on this thread and not sure if this has been discussed already. Sorry if I am

Metallica, Deep Purple or Led Zeppelin?

If it is LedZep, be assured that they openly admit to taking inspiration from many artists before them. Though I won't totally agree to the article that they stole complete parts from them. Attention seeking article. The world was different then!

I wouldn't call it plagiarism as much as maybe 'influences'?

Led Zeppelin has been in the news for this. If you've heard 'When The Levee Breaks', you wouldn't guess that the song is actually a cover and the original is by Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie in 1929. The original song is less heavy and more bluesy. I'm not aware if Led Zep had given them due credit.

Food for thought: Sean Kingston's 'Me Love' sounds uncannily similar to 'Dyer Maker' by Led Zeppelin.

There are plenty of songs out there that sound pretty similar.

Porcupine Tree's Voyage 34 Phase-1 sounds almost identical to The Wall (part-1) by Pink Floyd. Even PT's Time Flies is not far off Pink Floyd's 'Dogs' from the Animals album.

Some bands take previously recorded / composed songs and make them their own. For example Tool's cover of No Quarter by Led Zepp, or Maynard's cover of King Crimson's 21st Century Schizoid Man. Or a host of Nirvana tracks like 'The Man Who Sold The World' (originally by David Bowie) or even 'Lake Of Fire' (by The Meat Puppets) until I looked it up, I hadn't a clue that they were covers!

I'd take that article with a pinch of salt.

So who all are going to the FLY festival? Anthrax, Mastodon, Deep Purple and Nervecell! Should be fun but sadly I'll have to give it a miss.

And how is the new Cannibal Corpse album 'Torture'? Anyone heard it yet?
