For Dankstra:

Flaw
Through the Eyes



Quote:
Through the Eyes is the major label debut album of alternative metal group Flaw. It was released in 2001 on Universal Records. The album features a combination of clean vocals and screaming as well as highly distorted and melodic guitar work. Songs such as "Get Up Again" and "Reliance" focus primarily on aggressive melodies while "My Letter" and "Best I Am" could perhaps be considered power ballads. Themes of angst and rage are found throughout the album; however, many of the songs on Through the Eyes also express hope and pride in one's self.
My friend gave me this album in 03 and I just loved it.

For s_k:
I didn't forget about you. I'm still going to introduce you to hip hop. I'm going to slowly ween you into the genre by letting you hear two groups that use instruments as well as rap.

The Roots
Phrenology


Quote:
The Roots is an American hip hop band. The Roots began performing in 1989 as The Square Roots with rapper Black Thought, drummer Questlove. Rapper Malik B. and bassist Leonard Hubbard joined the band in 1991. Over its history, Questlove and Black Thought have always remained with The Roots while their lineup of backing musicians has changed.
Gym Class Heroes
The Papercut Chronicles

Quote:
Gym Class Heroes is an American alternative hip hop band from Geneva, New York. The group uses live instrumentation, and is noted for displaying hip-hop influences while performing alongside artists who are mainly considered to be rock, pop-punk, and metal bands. They have collaborated with Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump on numerous occasions, notably for providing backing vocals on the song "Cupid's Chokehold." Stump also produced the majority of their album The Quilt.
I really love this band mainly because they are from my area Upstate New York well about 4 hours or so but still. I know some of the places they hang out at. I will always love their first album. The second one was okay and then with their third they wanted a more hip hop feel to it but I hear for their fourth release they are going to return back to basics and make a part 2 for papercut chronicles.

To Dankstra:



Sopor Aeternus - Dead Lovers Sarabande (Face One)

Technically labeled as a darkwave band but very much on the neo-classical end of things. One of my favorite bands, and fun to listen to. Albeit, for some reason megaunknown. With Dankstra being a lover of the avant-garde, and neoclassical, feel it'd be a perfect fit.

I have no idea what this is, apart from your description. Hmm, alternative metal... Will give it a listen. Thanks.

Thank you. Never heard of this band and it seems to be right up my alley.

I'll get back at you both after a couple of listens.

I'm gonna have a bit in my journal where I review something outside of my listening habits. So can anyone suggest any country or classical? (two genres I know little about but feel I might like) Also some metal. (A genre I'm convinced I don't like. Hoping someone here can swing me around.)

Thanks in advance.

That roots album is great. Definitely listen to that over and over. I wish all hip hoppers had real bands.

Long time reply. Apologies.

From Dankstra:



I am always open to any sort of music. If someone sends me a generic Pop album and says that track four is genuinely good then I will give it a listen so when I received this album with the general tag of early industrial I was both intrigued and a little apprehensive.

Despite the experimental nature of early Industrial I have always found it a very hit and miss genre. One to appreciate and admire but not always worthy of repeat listens. This album proved a very definite exception to my own enforced rules.

Cazazza is an individual who has also dabbled in anti- authoritarian art and his music is both thematically and structurally non conformist with some tracks built around vocalised poems and rants and others based upon media samples and text. This makes the album all the more interesting to listen to and explore but does it stand up to repeated listens? You bet it does. I have listened to this album at least 3 times from beginning to end and each time found something new and unique.

It is not an album I would buy oddly enough because it is obviously not an album you can put on in the afternoon and read a book to but it works perfectly in a certain frame of mind; whether that is shooting the breeze on the net or wearing headphones in a darkened room to heighten the dark ambience.

Despite it's defiant stance in being non mainstream, it is very easy to listen to in the right circumstances and I never find myself wanting to switch off once I am deep in his murky world of his music.

A definite winner and very rewarding. Many thanks Dankstra.

A bit of ill health and my youngest decided to drop my laptop and break the LCD screen so I managed to find a replacement screen and fit it which was daunting but I managed it in the end. There is a reason why major electrical retailers don't stock replacement screens- A) it's a pain in the arse to fit them and B) they want you to buy a new laptop instead of replacing a screen and so giving them extra revenue when you don't have to if you use the net for it's actual purpose: information. Tossers.
