If not particularly ground breaking and very similar sounding to their previous albums, Killswitch Engages new album is good.

Anyone onto the new Dinosaur Pile-Up album? I fucking love it. An homage to so much I've loved about rock music over the last 20-odd years. Some really nailed-on Weezer, Nirvana early Foos, Silverchair, Pumpkins inspired songs in there. It's like they said 'our favourite bands aren't making these songs any more, so we will.'

 

And they fucking shred.

Tool's Fear Inoculum has leaked and it's mostly what I thought it'd be, an album that I'd have preferred to have had a lot shorter songs mostly, but that still has some great moments. I genuinely think some of it will grow on me as well.

 

The last track though, 7empest, is something that I think is fucking amazing and has some of the best guitar work I've ever heard Adam Jones do. I can listen to the entire track without even craving that it be shorter even though it's the longest on the album. Some of what's on the album sounds a lot closer to me to Lateralus than anything on 10,000 days did for me too which is also great, and that'll easily have me going back to listen again.

Fear Inoculum has is very good but feels a bit formulated.

 

Wierd drums, guitar picks, minimal singing, build build build, awesome guitar solo, end. A lot of them also sound like Schism. 

 

Of the 6 proper songs (I’m not classing Chocolate Chip Trip in this), 5 of them follow this template. 

 

7empest is incredible though.  

 

I’ve not been able to play it at an ear splitting level yet. I do like it & think it’ll grow further on me.

Giving Fear Inoculum a proper listen today.

 

Got to say that I'm more than a little giddy with the release today. 13 years! 13 long years!

Full album is posted on their youtube which is awesome and wasn't sure if they'd do that or not. Putting this one here and my other fave Culling Voices into another tunes thread seeing as it's more of a quiet one for the most part.

As thought, Fear Inoclum has grown on me significantly and I can honestly say I love it.

 

Album of 2019 so far for me, and there have been a few very good ones this year (Fever 333, Wildhearts & Slipknot were my other favs).

Listened yesterday and really like them. They are not doing anything new but the best complement I can give is I feel like I've already heard the songs before.

 

Agree with the bands mentioned as influences but I would add Pixies (Black Limosine basically uses the intro to Where is my mind) but also had me thinking of Feeder, Royal Blood and even Blink 182. Was surprised after listening to see they are English as they are definitely going after the American vibe/sound.

 

Thanks for the heads up.

Nice one dude, glad you enjoyed. Enjoyed on Black Limosine. There's some Feeder in there for sure. I can't stand Royal Blood, these lads have far more authenticity than those Radio 1 darlings. 

 

EDIT: Agreed on Black Limosene

From the new album, The Nothing. Allegedly available from all good torrent sites early. Apparently it’s quite good.

Something somewhat lighter than I’ve been posting...

 

I do like Green Day and Weezer. Fall Out Boy are fucking shite though. I’ll be getting a beer and a burger when those chumps are on.

 

Green Days new song sounds a bit like Eagles Of Death Metal. I quite like it. 

 

Good to hear Weezer have plugged in the guitars again after they’re bang average attempts a pop albums.

And saw a bunch of you raving over the bronx before. Not having it. Shite. Saw them supporting flogging molly last year in Sheffield. Only one band worth talking about that night and it wasnt the one loads of bellends had come to see.

Clueless.

 

Not least because Face to Face were also on that bill.  Anyone who thinks there was only one band worth talking about wasn't paying attention.

I really enjoyed face to face at rebellion a few years ago but not particularly that night. 
 

floggy molly fucking killed it though.

All three bands were spot on at the London date I went to.  Had a great night, singing along to Face to Face, bouncing around to the Bronx and then completely blowing out the remainder of my voice (and calf muscles) with Flogging Molly.
