2011 Album Review (Jan-June)

 Whaddup!! I'm back with some reviews. Hehe.
Owh i just noticed one thing, this is the 2nd time aku review album yg release within Jan-June.
Well what the hell, my blog anyway. Haha!
Actually, as usual..my laaammeeee excuse..- I DONT HAVE TIME. :p

Lagipon, i'm not a good blogger. So just enjoy what i have here. Doin' it for fun..so i dont bother. :)

DESTROY REBUILD UNTIL GOD SHOWS - D.R.U.G.S.

Craig Owens (ex-CHIODOS) - lead vocals
Matt Good (FFTL) - rhythm guitar, keyboards, synthesizers, programming, vocals
Nick Martin (Underminded) - lead guitar, vocals
Adam Russell (SOTY) - bass
Aaron Stern (Matchbook Romance) - drums










 1.    "If You Think This Song Is About You, It Probably Is"    
2.    "The Only Thing You Talk About"    
3.    "Graveyard Dancing"    
4.    "Mr. Owl Ate My Metal Worm"    
5.    "Sex Life"    
6.    "Laminated E.T. Animal"    
7.    "Stop Reading, Start Doing Pushups"

10.    "The Hangman"    
11.    "My Swagger Has a First Name"    
12.    "A Little Kiss and Tell" 


This super-group mmg dinanti2 kan ramai. Sblm diorg release pon vibe diorg agak kuat. Dengan video promo yg berbentuk jalan cerita, then diorg guna sepenuhnya kemudahan youtube utk promote lagu2 diorg. Semua lagu diorg buh videoclip!
Dari segi sound, aku bleh ckp diorg ni iras the gloomy side of The Used. Tp disebabkan Craig Owens pnye fanatik ramai, so nampak DRUGS ni outstanding gila. Nice band to listen.

fav tracks - 2, 8 & 9.

4.    "Modern Wolf Hair"

Honestly, not a big fan of Chiodos. Aku tak dgr pon album2 diorg masa dengan Craig Owens. Tp album Illuminaudio ni aku gila abis. Pada aku sound diorg da lain. Aku lebih suka lenggok Brandon Bolmer ni compare ngan Craig. Tp syg Brandon pnya clean vox time live barai. Tp scream dia best. Aku x paham kenapa diorg tambah effek scream dlm album. Album ni pada aku mood dia iras Saosin. Kecewa gak la smpi arini aku dgr preview Saosin tanpa Cove mcm x sedap je. Xtau la album diorg nnt cmne.
Anyway, sorry la pada yg suka Chiodos mase dengan Craig, serius aku rasa Chiodos lg better dengan Brandon.

Again..not a big fan of THA. THA sblum ni aku dengar xbleh masuk langsung! Bkn aku x cuba k, mmg xleh masuk dia punya metal. And vox lama dia macam x kena je haha. Tp, since Travis Ritcher (FFTL) masuk, aku tergerak nak dengar balik. Sbb aku tau Travis pnye growl terbaik. Sangkaan aku x meleset. Digital Veil pnye album mmg terbaik gile. Tight, melodic, mood dia semua menusuk. Aku dengar mcm BTBAM mixed dengan Fear Before pon ada. Jauh beza dgn album2 diorg yg terdahulu. Mmg lain dari yg lain. Kalo suka riffing2 yg techy ni, aku suggest Digital Veil.

Emmure Emmure Emmure. Breakdown Breakdown Breakdown. Tak banyak beza pon dengan album2 sblm ni. Kalo da sebut "Emmure", dah patut tau la ape yg korang dapat ble mendengar nye. Aku suka album ni. Breakdown dia jahat. And style si Frankie nyanyi dengan gaya rapping tu mmg fav aku. Masih ade yg menyampah ngan Emmure. Tp aku still respek diorg ni. Buat lek je. And paling fakk diorg datang S'pore. Dan aku xleh keluar negara dah start bln ni sbb da kene blacklist oleh PTPTN. Mader fader!

Fav tracks - 5, 6, 8, 10 & 13.



VOLUMES - THE CONCEPT OF DREAMING

Michael Barr - Voc
Gus Farias - Voc
Diego Farias - Guitar / Engineer
Raad Soudani - Guitar
DJ Schwartz - Drums / Engineer
Daniel Braunstein - Bass







1. Two-One
2. Wormholes
3. Through the Trees
4. Starstruck
5. Intake
6. Gateways


Volumes adalah salah satu band yg aku btol2 looking forward diorg pnye upcoming release. Selain itu ade band lain yg mcm ni seperti Glaciers, Structures & Legend etc. Dan Volumes adalah yg paling aku minat. Beat berat yg diorg bawak sambil selang seli dengan bunyi guitar yg high mmg stim sgt ble layan, tambah2 pakai head/ear phones. Berbanding dgn muzik yg berat sepanjang masa, Volumes ada sentuhan alam yg btol2 unik. Aku harap band ni x RIP mcm tu je. Mmg terbaik dari ladang.

Fav tracks - Oleh sbb track dia sikit, so aku suka semua. Haha!

EMERY - WE DO WHAT WE WANT

Toby Morell – vocals, bass guitar
Matt Carter – guitar, vocals
Josh Head – keyboards, screaming vocals
Dave Powell – drums, percussion
Devin Shelton - backing vocals







1. "The Cheval Glass"
2. "Scissors"
3. "The Anchors"
4. "The Curse of Perfect Days"
5. "You Wanted It"
6. "I'm Not Here for Rage I'm Here for Revenge"
7. "Daddy's Little Peach"
8. "Addicted to Bad Decisions"
9. "I Never Got to See the West Coast"
10. "Fix Me"
11. "Crumbling"

Yeah. They do what they want. Satu motivasi untuk band2 di luar sana. Buat apa yg korang suka. Bukan nye ikut telunjuk syarikat rakaman. Haha. Emery x pernah mengecewakan. Album ni ade baur2 Emery lama mcm dalam album The Weak End. Sesapa yang cakap Pierce The Veil lagi better dari Emery adalah bangang. Ade problem dengan halwa telinga dia. Haha! Yg follow Emery, mmg wajib dengar.

Fav tracks - 1, 4, 5, 9, 10.

Well, actually banyak lagi band yg release stuff within Jan-June ni. Macam For The Fallen Dreams, Job For A Cowboy, Arsonists Get All The Girls etc, etc tp x sempat nk kumpul metarial utk di review.
Pape pon enjoy reading k guys! Have a nice day!
