Is it 1993 already?

Well cross them off then.

Ted Leo + the Pharmacists have an album coming out next year. That's my #1.

That Trent Reznor pic kinda makes him look like Ed Grimley.

Is anyone else here sick of Ozzy saturation? Between having his family everywhere in tv & media and the craptastic destruction of Sirius XM Boneyard so he could slap his name on it, I'm all set with him any anything he touches right now. He's turning into a one man version of Kiss.

I tuned out after his third farewell tour in 1991.

Kind of a statement on the main stream music being produced today. There's a lot of good stuff out there, it just doesn't fit into the pop game plan.
 
2012-09-16 08:58:23 AM
I'm looking forward to the Alice in Chains new release, but damn do I miss Layne Staley.

Came hoping for QotSA on there. Not for the website ranking, just proof that an album is still in process.

I really wish Pearl Jam didn't jump the shark years back.  Was a huge, huge fan all the way through Riot Act.  But everything since then has been so completely generic.
 
I've tried to get into stuff after that, but just can't.  Does nothing for me.

My favorite is Vitalogy, so I'm probably not the best judge. Listening to Ten while on LSD spiraled me into a particularly bad trip, so I'll always have negative feelings about it.

Ok, I admittedly know NOTHING about how music is recorded, but this makes me sad:

Pearl Jam....drummer Matt Cameron recently stated that he was recording his drum parts prior to leaving for a Soundgarden tour in November...

Maybe this is why a lot of music today seems a little too over-produced?

Shouldn't it be a bunch of guys in a studio playing a song that gets recorded?

So which band is the 'all dead' band? only recognized about half of those.

came to post this.

that said, I wouldn't mind a new Tool, NIN, or Alice in Chains album; though I can't really think of any new releases for 2013 otherwise. There's still other stuff coming out this year!

You'd think so, but I don't think a band like KISS ever recorded together outside of the first few albums.
 
2012-09-16 12:16:09 PM
I'm not really anticipating any of those. Only ones that strike the level of "mild interest" are Queens of the Stone Age and Tool.
 
2012-09-16 12:16:45 PM
PJ sucks. Too political and forced anymore. Used to admire Eddy but he's just a self-righteous prick. Last PJ album I bought was No Code, so no thanks, guys.

Tool in 2013? Unpossible...we minions haven't EVEN begun to wait long enough!
 
2012-09-16 12:20:05 PM
Excited for Trent hopefully shifting away from Mariqueen to produce something great again with Nine Inch Nails. How to Destroy Angels sounds clearly like Trent, but I never hear her voice, which is good, in my ears as much as somewhere behind my head which is awkward. Was there for the NINJA tour, and waiting for another, too. As for Tool, I am counting on another Puscifer release in 2013 before Maynard starts production again with Tool to release in 2014.

Waiting for Alice in Chains, Judas Priest, and Queens of the Stone Age, as well; I am grateful Soundgarden has King Animal coming soon, not only for the band to be returning to producing music but to mind the gap.

buntz: Shouldn't it be a bunch of guys in a studio playing a song that gets recorded?


I might be far off, but I think there are generally efforts to isolate each member rather than try to record the entire song with the entire band in a single effort for the album quality wanted. The only band I think I know of who has every member play together for every song for every album is Rage Against the Machine. Again, I could be way off; this might be some urban legend which I don't remember where I picked it up.

FTFA: Drummer Matt Cameron recently stated that he was recording his drum parts prior to leaving for a Soundgarden tour in November, leading to speculation the disc was almost done.

Uh, usually drum parts are recorded first, not last, which would suggest that they've just begun recording.

it seems ok for me to pirate music of dead musicians, for obvious reasons. but i wouldn't be surprised if there was a flaw in that logic.

I'm also interested in hearing That Guy From Disturbed's album just to see if his idea of Industrial is farty sequencers straight out of 1998.

I think they generally lay down the base of the song together.  Not sure how else it would work.  Everyone has to be on the same beat, and drummers are (intentionally) not perfect at keeping time.  I suppose you could start with the drummer laying down his tracks, but that seems a bit awkward... as he'd have to have the song in his head while playing.
 
Of course after the base of the song is recorded, individuals lay down fixes and sweeteners alone.

That does make more sense.

I'm good with that list, someone mentioned a new clutch album too which is good news. If there were more than 6 good rock bands formed in the past 20 years we wouldn't have to get this excited about 90's bands making music.

See, I didn't know that. I just always assumed band member went into one of those egg-carton rooms, played a song and it got recorded!

That's kinda disappointing!

There are a bunch of different ways of recording, but in this ProTools era, most producers prefer to cut everything to a click track, which forces the drummer into a set time. Then, everything has an established tempo, and you can cut and paste takes and parts however you want.

It's one of the reasons so much music feels mechanical these days, as the click track cuts out the ability of the rhythm section to subtly alter the song's tempo.

Pretty much what I was thinking, and it's funny that everyone agrees. Author of tfa must have been born c.1970, I'm guessing.

SoxSweepAgain: I'm looking forward to the Alice in Chains new release, but damn do I miss Layne Staley.


I gotta say, I like the new dude. Their last album was really good. It helps that Cantrell is an awesome vocalist in his own right. But it's nice that they didn't just find a sound-alike for Staley, like so many groups do. He has his own sound and style, that still works well with the AIC sound. It's like the difference between Van Halen and Van Hagar, but without the vitriol from the fans.
 
2012-09-16 01:13:33 PM
Tool


It's Maynard James Keenan's world, and whichever of his three bands strikes his fancy at the time is typically what we get. Having focused on getting Puscifer off the ground in recent years and doing a tour with A Perfect Circle, it appears that Tool is back on the schedule. In 2010, the band members had started writing for their next record, both with and without Keenan. By May of this year, drummer Danny Carey discussed having the framework for five songs with more studio time expected in the summer and an eye toward a late 2012 finish. Whenever it arrives, fans won't treat the disc merely as a new album, but as an event.




yes please.

60 year old metal heads and Gen-Xer grunge fans?

Pearl Jam always sucked. Derivative and thoroughly uninteresting. Eddy Vedder is dull-witted, humorless, and, as you noted, self-righteous. At some point, you just got old enough to really notice things like that, I suspect.
