And here we go again. A short reminder on some amazing albums from the deepest past as well as some new ones. These are the most played records in the last few months here A real monument of extreme metal genre. You could clearly feel that Death Metal genre got new bastard son, the one that will change direction and take another step in the world of musical darkness. Oh yeah, when these perverted maniacs released their debut scene was is shock, real shock!
But, the record found its own path to the real sick souls and shortly after the album was released the band got true followers and worshipers. There is no other way! Gore, audio bloody Gore! But then, just like that Impetigo smashed all barriers and hit the scene with their masterpiece. These maniacs managed to create atmosphere completely unreachable until then when it comes to metal albums.
It was so real, so close… you could almost touch it, the atmosphere of death and frightening terror. Later after, many bands tried to play Gore but…no one, ever managed to come even close to Ultimo Mondo Cannibale…and as it looks like nowadays 24 years later, no one ever will!
They were young, they were crazy and hungry for brutal Metal and they fucking did it. Oh yes, they did it! Carrion for Worm is all about uncontrolled bestial brutality. Everything here every second of the record hit you right in the head, cut you with sharp corroded razors and throw you away like a bunch of crap!
And if we all know that the main person behind the band is a female, complete story gets really wicked way! And now about the music. Very authentic band based in Belgium. Very well balanced ambient meets post-punk and even doom, dark streams. Well, yes nowadays it sounds Were On Our Own - Exit Calm - Exit Calm (Promo) (CDr) total trend and something very usual around.
Har Nevo is hermetically sealed album with necessary dose of creepy atmosphere that will capture you and force you to play it all over again. Not for everyday listening, not for everyone but, definitely for those who are seeking for quality and real art!
Fuck yeah! At least for me of course. Again, one of these albums that poisoned my blood when I was just a very young dickhead and stayed inside me for all these years of my Metal journey. Direct, raw, sharp, powerful, dynamic, provoking, evil, brutal fucking Death Metal.
And yes, he is! And here we go, next stop Vienna. One of the most beautiful cities of the old continent. Amazing culture, high class restaurants, clubs and glorious architecture but also, home and shelter of definitely the sickest and most bizarre band around.
Pungent Stench, all the time underrated band, gave some new dimensions of shock and perversion to our lovely sounds. What they offered to the scene was definitely too much for a big part of typical Metal followers and really just a few managed to understand Were On Our Own - Exit Calm - Exit Calm (Promo) (CDr) swallow all these filthy notes they played.
They never followed any trends, they created trends instead! Everything is strangely spooky about their records, artworks, themes, sounds…everything is so different and so smelly and sticky. Pure necro atmosphere is what they spread, real necro! Swedish Death Metal! Just a perfect example how European Death Metal should sound all the time! Many fans of the band would probably say, what the hell why this one? Heh, but wait! Second is also brilliant album, dirty and raw to the core.
But, third one is something different and something that same as some other albums on this list, changed extreme Metal for ever. Many fans, bands, mags said that they wimped out with this record, but hey! Where are all of these haters now? And where is the band now? Monday, 17 March Who is hiding behind? In my journey from being pathetic kid that started with discovering metal music and underground in general all long to the nowadays when I can work with some of my heroes from the past, there were so many moments to enjoy in, but also so many to be absolutely pissed of by people I met, people behind the music I worship.
Music is damn art and musicians as artists should really pay respect to their fans and worshipers as they are these who make their tunes alive and keep them and spread them as legacy or heritage. They are all the same at the very beginning in small clubs with just a few fans in front of the stage. They will stay and talk with their fans until the next day and share drinks with them and mostly acting friendly and normal in general as it should be of course.
Was all this at the beginning also fake and pose? Was it just feeding of their ego and status? I mean, of course there.
Wednesday, 22 January Communication failed How many of you ever bought some underground publication and red it? Zines offered us entire universe of possibilities with many new contacts of bands, labels, distros, 'zines…mainly, as I already said 'zines were the only chance to be familiar with the underground and damn, we praised that chance deeply!
I knew some who did and reverred them as special. A friend lent me an album in late and through reading and listening I got to learn about the Albert Hall film and the.
And now this. Part of the magic is the Were On Our Own - Exit Calm - Exit Calm (Promo) (CDr) with which the remaining members have resisted temptations to flog it to death on the road like most of their contemporaries. I went down to Tower records on Mercer St.
I walked around looking for the DVD. I picked up a copy on sale for and headed to the check out line. At that point a couple other people asked me for my memories of that show. I gave them as I remembered. Anyway, I got home and decided I wanted to watch this alone; feeling like. I relaxed and Were On Our Own - Exit Calm - Exit Calm (Promo) (CDr) to some blues while sipping on a few Crown Royals.
After relaxed and ready around 9 I cranked it up. This just blew me away. The sound came through MUCH louder than expected. Were gonna groove was a fuckin killer opener for this DVD! I Were On Our Own - Exit Calm - Exit Calm (Promo) (CDr) I wanted loud, but I was startled!
Overall, I just enjoyed every moment. What a DVD. This is going to be a monster seller and will put those critics to rest for good! Well, worth the price!!
Many of us reading this have dedicated entire bookcases stocked to the rafters with various and sundry illicit recordings of all sizes and shapes and video for that matter in the hopes capturing something remotely close to the gem we all knew would spring forth if Jimmy was to tackle this project and do it right. Well folkshe nailed it to perfection. No point in even going into the CD which we all know in the first 7 songs alone is head and shoulders better than anything any band could deliver, any day, any era….
Go ahead and try to make me a liar. Were On Our Own - Exit Calm - Exit Calm (Promo) (CDr) sat in front of my TV, drinking it all in, and I literally choked up at the sheer majesty of it all.
Well, Led Zeppelin does that, they move ya. We are still enthralled for a reason. In this one segment, given the best treatment we could expect from Jimmy and his team, we have before us the closest recreation of parts of that show short of being there. This is a lumbering dinosaur??? Yeah, some dinosaur. Go ahead, take a look again and bear witness to the supreme power and glory that is Rock and Roll, Achilles, or Kashmir. Zeppelin have the ability to enter the very fibre of your being, to elicit the highest highs and the lowest lows of the emotional spectrum….
This IS sweet evidence. Show them why that even today, 23 damn years after they last tread the boards, no one even comes close. This is the type of stuff that plays tojust as easily as it does 3, and Knebworth is the proof.
It does that because they were simply huge. This is the power of Led Zeppelin Live and is the perfect yin to the perfect yang that are the studio works. It just simply demonstrates how far ahead they were to whomever was supposedly number 2. However, now the down points:- Although I thought that the cover art was good in both cases, the liner notes and photography was a major let down! I feel that the music has been compromised by a lack of detail in notes.
For example, we have very little text to set all the clips, concerts, etc in context. I am also a big Deep Purple fan and rejoice in the sheer attention to detail their archive releases get with input from the DPAS — the Led Zep stuff looks like it has been rushed…. The DVD is simply a dream come true. I am stunned, mesmerized, blown away, proud, awed and humbled all at the same time. I can now say that I have almost seen a Led Zeppelin concert.
Bootlegs do not compare. It is so great to see Clive Coulson unloading the equipment off the plane in Iceland, and to see Jimmy greeted with a bouquet of flowers. I also loved Richard Cole running alongside the limousine like a Secret Service agent! I like seeing Jeff Beck backstage at the Royal Albert Hall, and the boys getting ready, along with that shot of Jonesy on the organ.
The Royal Albert Hall footage is absolutely stunning. This really is a Holy Grail. Like many, my central channel experiences crackling noises set in Dolby 5. Speaking of Bonzo. The menus on DVD 2 are even more interesting.
So many surprises. Finally, it warms my heart to see all of the home movie footage used to such great effect throughout the entire disc. The editing is dynamic and it really is a good bridge between the early years and the superstar years. What stage presence! On to New York. Enough complaining. The Earls Court footage is so crystal clear! The Earls Court segment shows him as a master of mandolin, stand up bass, fretless bass, clavinet and electric piano.
Personally, this was the most anticipated part of the DVD, and it does not disappoint. It warms my heart to finally see for myself how magical it really was. We see a more mature band that is still proving how potent their chemistry is. They all shine here. They still had it! The interview footage is a nice counterpoint to all the frenzy of the live performances. They picked good bits; of course, I wish they were more complete! I am a collector; therefore, I am a completist. I cannot help it!
In closing, I just want to write that Jimmy Page is my favorite rock musician of all time, and that these projects make me more in awe of the man than ever. Thanks to him for finally giving the fans what they want. What a great time to be a fan of this band. Why so lucky? Most of us always thought they were the best, but this release takes us all to a new level and really drives it home that they truly are they best live band of all time.
Many people regard the Beatles as being No. I wandered through a deserted Preston city centre at 9am this morning and I was first in to HMV — it felt like I had gone back thirty years to those days when a new Zeppelin album was released and I rushed off to the record store with my mates to be the first to grab the thing off the shelf.
This really brings it all back — it really does! The increased resolution of Anamorphic would have made this section amazing. The other is that the DVD defaults to 2. It has to be manually selected. These niggles are nothing really as the quality of both picture and the sound are really astonishing.
Speaking of image quality I was suprised how well the EC footage has held up, in fact better than the Knebworth footage. Did you notice there are many colour flaws in the Knebworth footage? Anyway, a superb DVD and well overdue.
They should release that as a single, it sounds so powerful on my DTS amp. The sound, particularly using the surround sound option, is really impressive.
I always liked the look and sound of the band more on that in my CD commentsso the Knebworth footage is a particular fave. To my surprise, the close-ups are good and the band sounds great. The band is in good form in the Albert Hall performance. One other performance Tous En Scene is particularly amusing for the lack of audience reaction. Everyone is simply sitting and staring at the sonic assault before them, a far cry from what the band had seen in the states.
It adds credence to the long-standing claims that the band was not in top form in Song Remains the Same. I will be driving my wife crazy for weeks watching these things. There is no doubt in listening that Page and Kevin Shirley put a tremendous effort into restoring these performances. The audio is top notch. I only wish that what is being billed as the ultimate live CD set from the band came from more than two performances in I am nearly finished with the whole set but probably keep it on a continuous loop until the day is gone.
Highlights amongst the 18 highlights for me are Stairway to Heaven never sounded betterRock and Roll just kicks arseDazed and Confused already loved it on the bootlegs, but this is just wow and The Ocean just great from the entire band. The only negative points if you could call them so, are. For a Zephead, who never had the chance to see them live this is probably as good as it gets.
Thank you Jimmy, Jonesey, Robert for making this possible and I am sure if we all turn it up to full volume even Bonzo can hear it tonight. I am definitely going to do so…. I went to see the screening at the cinema in Oxford on Sunday night, so I got to hear how it should sound — properly loud! I think the RAH Moby Dick deserves a special mention — words fail me to describe how awesome a drummer Bonham was, and being that close to him albeit on screen while he goes all-out is an amazing experience.
How long did each drum kit last, I wonder? I mean, the Who were renowned for trashing their equipment but Bonham seemed hell-bent on destroying his drums just from the force of his playing! However, this made me me even more restless to see the rest!! At After what seemed like 5 hours it was actually 5 minutes! The Times. Authority control. ISNI 1. MusicBrainz artist.
