Ever since I saw TesseracT live at GIR I've been hooked and now they've come out with a new album. Not exactly heavy metal though.



And the old album


Also check out Amogh Symphony. Vishal J Singh is a seriously talented guy!

ok then....why is it so quiet in here?

been listening to a couple of new albums from two classic bands...both albums are pretty good. To all those who like old school death metal, check out Autopsy's The Headless Ritual and the new Carcass album, Surgical Steel (stylistically similar to Heartwork era)

Cranking-up RATM these days. Killing In The Name Of, Bulls On Parade, Sleep Now In The Fire.. Takes me back to a time when the only thing that worried us was the amount of homework we got in school. What a band! So badass!

I watched Anvil yesterday (have it on DVD). It is the poignant tale of a band that so deserved to be in the Big 4 of Thrash but didn't. Metallica, Anthrax and Slayer members in fact appear in the documentary musing over this very point. The music sounds evil, will try and source it online and give it a listen.

PS>> On a related note, though it is an actual documentary, Anvil has so many resemblances to This is Spinal Tap that it's not funny. Rob Reiner's 1983 mockumentary classic about a fictional has-been British heavy rock band is one of my all-time favourite movies about music.

PPS>> Trivia: Stuff you cannot make up. Anvil's drummer and founding member featured prominently in the documentary is named Robb Reiner

@Noopster: watched it many months back. was a feel good documentary and little words of critics were that most of it like the ending was all hogwash...ah well

@suhaas: i just dumped a few of RATM songs into my car playlist! good stuff.

New powerwolf album was ok, new megadeth album was so so, new sabbath album was good. need to listen to more Sabaton. what a blast those guys are!

Some offbeat bands which caught my ears were circle of silence, civil war, vendetta, paragon and brainstorm

I love the band's energy. De la Rocha is pumped, and Morello's experimental guitar-work is enjoyable. But the rapping gets tedious after a certain point, and I find myself quickly switching to something else. Love them though, RATM.

I just loaded my phone with Rush's 2112 and a few albums by The Black Keys. Let's see how it goes.

Guys, have you listen to the following bands and if so, what do you'll think?:

- Yes
- Queensryche

BTW I nearly fell for Ozzy's death-hoax that had spread like wildfire on Facebook. *blush*

Revolution calling, i dont believe in love, walk in the shadows, queen of the reich are all staples in my playlist what a voice! The new singer sounds oh so similar to tate. pretty good album compared to a few of their previous ones...

Yes goes beyond my head :P

All Rush ! The best ones are the first layer (late 70s to early 80s till they turned key board oriented). ST, 2112, Hemisphere, Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures.

- Yes
All Yes (well almost). Its through them I got to know of Bill Brufford and hence got to hear Robert Fripp and company for whom, Brufford played for some time (Album : Descipline)

Classic Yes and Tales from Topographic ocean are standout (So are Close to the Edge and Drama).

All the essentials. Once by mistake I ordered a DVD of album Empire. I thought it was video. Imagine my surprise when I realized it was a DVD 5.1 audio. And now imagine 10 years back in time, when we had less of those portable players, Ipod was not that famous and I had a 5.1 DVD Audio album, a bachelor's time to spend, Harmon Kardon AVR and a pair of JBL Northridges! along with the rest to complete a home theater setup.

The room sure rocked!

The live albums are also superb. I have All The World's A Stage and Exit...Stage Left which between them cover the "golden era". Don't miss Sam Dunn's brilliant docu-tribute to the band "Beyond the Lighted Stage" either.

Suhaas, since you dig Crimson, I think Yes will be a breeze for you. My problem is that I heard Yes too early (7th grade, can you believe it!!) Never got into them much after that.

Yes heard all of them too. The documentary is super cool. The only live show I did not like was Rush in Rio, which I thought should be awesome, knowing the production quality they get. But the audio was quite poor. The crowd noise was too high and Geddy's voice totally got lost. I think they bungled up in post production. I had very high hopes on that album. Mainly because the crowd participation is awesome to say the least. And also since some time earlier I had bought Maiden's Rock in Rio and that was one of the best live shows I had ever seen then(on DVD of course!). (It ranks among the best even now in my list. )

Yeah, King Crimson gets better with every listen. In fact, some would say my obsession now borders on unhealthy levels. Even though KC isn't 'metal' in the strictest sense, there is an underlying heaviness in their music that you just can't escape. It's fantastic. If Yes is anything like KC, I should be hooked in no time.

No takers for the bards? Their love for Mr Tolkien is awesome. Nightfall in Middle Earth is one of the best albums I have listened. Beautiful muti-tracked creations and melodies. Meanwhile I found this on youtube (Accoustic of a song from Somewhere Far Beyond). I think I posted it earlier too but not sure.

@ampere: find blind guardian a bit hard to digest at times...nice songs but when it comes up in my playlist i find myself skipping it...maybe because can't take too much of his voice.

But amazing singalong choruses these guys have. the live performance of the bard's song has the whole crowd singing the song which was awesome

May be the reason I love them is because, the voice delivery matches the Tolkien genre. And you are true, that one cant listen to them for ever. Its too hard. But I take that hardness only for the melody.

So I mostly mix and match their good ones on the playlist.
