I'm gonna be that guy and go ahead and plug my own band.
I play lead guitar and wrote a decent majority of this particular song. For the prog metalheads on here, this should be right up your alley, although it's a little 'djenty' as some of the kids nowadays would say.
We've got a few shows coming up July 7th at the Oasis and we're opening up for The Contortionist, Jeff Loomis and Chimp Spanner in Joliet on July 15th. If anyone shows up for either of those shows, I'll buy you a beer.
I'd love some opinions.
Hey this is pretty good! Wanted to see Loomis on this tour but life has been too busy.
For others that don't know what Djent is, I think this is a really good representative song.
FYI, late 60s, 70s, and 80s rock, and 90s grunge is the best music. People have been listening to The Who, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, Jimi Hendrix Experience, AC/DC, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, etc. for years and will continue to. Longevity is what proves is the best music. These new rap and pop songs (a few in which I like) will not be popular in five years. Some songs have been popular over 40 years and are still frequently on the radio or blasted on a CD.
Well not that i expect anyone on this board to like my tastes in music--especially since much of what I like is not even in english --but still for those adventurous enough to recognize great artists and great songs even if in foregin languages I will tip you off to my latest discovery (again searching my like of certain Italian pop and rock music artists) I think the next big thing out there is : BIANCA ATZEI ...
(original,fresh and vey different from the pablum parading as pop that pollutes the airwaves today -she is a scratchy-voiced but capable of reaching the heights with the nest of them songstress who combines aspects of Winehouse's modern edginess ,Adele's soaring vaults and Piaf's power, emotion and scratchiness--all combined with the attitude you get from Italian and the combo is meserizing...Google her and view the You Tube clips of LA GELOSIA and L'AMORE VERO ---of course it also helps in viewing her clips that she has stunning looks and a sexy body,but even if you just heard her sing those songs you would be admiiting this is something special and different than the usual --she would be the next "big thing" if she sung in English --but even so--take my word--go check her out...
