Looked up some of their songs; couldn't even hear the freakin' thing over the generic nu-metal.

[up][up]What took you so long?

[up]I can hear it just fine, what song was it?

Oh, do they just use it like a bass? I imagined it being used as some sort of loud, deep effect that they put really high in the mix.

[up]Yeah, they mostly use it as a kind of bass, but it's kinda hard to explain. It's like a bass that you play like a drum, I guess?

Just happened across this and kind of like it. At first you think "this is just Tool/APC lite but then it moves off and does its own thing.

[up]Pretty interesting.

I found a video of Deftones performing Passenger with the girl from Paramore. I thought she did fairly well, but she didn't seem too familiar with the song or at least didn't know what parts she was supposed to sing at times. I loved Chino's energy during the performance, too.

I don't think this was posted before.

Much better than the first single IMO.

Sorry for the bump but this deserves it.

[up]Sounds like metalcore, frankly. Not bad for metalcore though (the Russian makes it sound kind of exotic).

Had you not mentioned that the song is sung in Russian I never would have played it.

For the duration of the entire video the only lingering thought in my head was "these guys are from Moscow, no question". Other than that, the lyrics are just as cheesy as Howard Jones's (if not more inept), and the musicians are as tight and forgettable as any other generic metalcore band. Also, Harsh Vocals Guy sounds as if he has an accent (though it's obvious that he's simply not used to screaming in Russian).

Seconding the notion that these guys are completely indistinguishable from every other melodic metalcore band.

Ehrm but it is melodic metalcore. I've never denied it. tongue

Well yeah, but I'd just listen to Killswitch Engage if I wanted melodic metalcore. Not because I like them better than any other band in the genre or the genre itself, but rather that if I'm gonna listen to some samey-sounding rock, I'd like it to be the one band that distinguishes itself by its not-entirely monochrome membership.

I stay away from any kind of metalcore, myself. The heaviest thing I listen to is Helmet and Tool.

I listened to Alive or Just Breathing the other day and I had forgotten how much I love that record. Killswitch's stuff after that I can take or leave. From "The End of Heartache" to the other two records which sound exactly like it.

Loving what I've heard from the new Taproot album but one thing is bothering me - what the heck is with that ridiculous Stephen Hawking voice that crops up in No Surrender (and, according to rumour, the other songs)? is that something to stop illegal downloads or did they actually think it sounded good? Could be a potential album ruiner for me.

After that really stupid shouting in some parts of Plead The Fifth (Fractured comes to mind), a little Hawking wouldn't hurt anyone.

I'm not the least interested in The Episodes, to be honest; as a fan of their older stuff, I'm kinda sad they didn't expand upon their almost return to roots on Plead The Fifth.

I've got a question: does Mark Tremonti's new solo material count as alt-metal? Alt-metal tends to be identified on a case-by-case basis, true, but it's also a little bit faster than most alt-metal out there. Also, I'm not that good at categorization.

I remember first thinking it sounds like an Alter Bridge/Creed song. Maybe that's just his production style.

On another note, he seems to be trying for something ambitious with his vocals that he's not able to fully achieve. This would probably sound better with Miles Kennedy or someone with more range. When I heard he was going to write a solo record that was heavier than anything he's done before, I was pretty excited. All things considered I might have to pass on this one.

Sinch have released a new album. I had forgotten they existed. This is a good song of theirs

Almost falling to the second page? I won't let that happen!

the new Deftones is terrific.

I am fairly new to Alt-Metal and realize that YMMV on this, but Three Days Grace is my favorite band (As you can probably tell.)
I am expressing multiple attitudes simultaneously. To which are you referring?
I didn't like Life Starts Now... but the new album is totally cool. Lots of good songs there. The High Road springs to mind.

One-X is my dfavorite album, but Lost In You is my favorite song. I love all of their stuff, though.
