17. Nov. 2007, 13:58 von amodelofcontrolThe Guardian have begun today their 1000 albums to hear before you die, which will continue over the course of the next week. And while it is an interesting list, it is a broadly mainstream list.
So, perhaps it is time to redress the balance. I want suggestions for 100 alternative albums you should hear before you die (and perhaps more importantly, why). I'm thinking anything from across the realms of metal, goth, industrial, electronics, alternative rock/indie, and any of the variations thereof.
Put your suggestions in the comments (as many as you like), and when we have enough I'll put them all together in one long post, perhaps on my website, or even here.
I'll put one suggestion from me: Front 242's Front by Front. Why? Simply the best EBM album of all, it was ahead of it's time when released and nearly 20 years on no-one has bettered it yet. Oh, and having probably the most enduring goth/industrial dancefloor tracks of all on it (<i>Headhunter</i>, of course) doesn't hurt, either.
12. Feb. 2007, 8:50 von RyanNinjaMon 5 Feb – Mastodon, Converge, Priestess
First Avenue in Minneapolis, MN
show starts at 6:30pm.
me and my friend miss Priestess because we're too busy start a party before the show. we hear the last song and it sucks, and since the last song is usually the sweetest, we assume Priestess sucks.
Converge played very, very well. i had a better time seeing Converge at this show than in chicago (in sept 2006) because they finally changed their set up a little. they did some slight variations before that, but i pretty much saw the same show from Converge every year for three years in a row.. just bigger each time. this time was more of an amalgamation of all their shit that i have ever seen. they still had their typical 45 minute set, but before they played a lot of You Fail Me stuff.. this time it was all over the place. in 45 minutes they played songs off No Heroes, You Fail Me, The Poacher Diaries, Jane Doe, and Petitioning the Empty Sky. …

I saw Bleeding Through, Every Time I Die, Between the Buried and Me, and Haste The Day on saturday at the HOB in Anaheim. I don't really like Bleeding Through or Haste the Day but Between the Buried and Me was good, as usual, and Every Time I Die was the best band of the night. ETID ripped through 13 songs in their 45 minute set (setlist contained below) and HOT DAMN! was it good. I dont think i've had that much fun at a show in a long time. Between the Buried and Me's set was short and had questionable song choice (HOW THE FUCK DO YOU NOT PLAY MORDECAI!), but was enjoyable non the less. They played every note perfectly and got the crowd going. There were only two downsides: 1. No Mordecai. 2. They only played half of Shavenel. …
13. Feb. 2006, 2:16 von sim_maidenI decided to compile a list of my Favourite releases from 1990-2005 because I like lists and I love music lists. So here it goes. A short description of why I like each album will follow.
1990 - Rust In Peace
Great release from Mustaine and crew, although not my favourite Megadeth album (Youthanasia), it is still a fantastic album. Quite technical yet still very catchy and some great solo's pop up here and there.
Second Place: Violator
1991 - Streets: A Rock Opera
The only Savatage album I own regretably. I don't really know why I haven't picked up any others, because this is a great release that I constantly revisit. Nice concept and some quite varied songs throughout. Believe is one hell of a track.
Second Place: Sailing The Seas Of Cheese
1992 - Angel Dust
The best Faith No More release. A near perfect album. It is so wonderfully dark and even twisted, which is what we have come to except from Patton nowadays.
Second Place: Blues for the Red Sun
1993 - SEX & RELIGION
