When I first heard the album “You’re Not Alone”, I was fairly new to sobriety and in the process of a divorce. Everything in my life was raw and fairly new. Most people who get sober don’t make it past the first year. Too many things bring them back to the drink. While working the […]
Neurosis/Tribes of Neurot – Grace – 1999
In 1999, Neurosis came out with the album “Times of Grace“. That album, apparently was done in parallel with a lesser known side project of theirs – Tribes of Neurot. I’ve heard the combination of these albums before (both albums playing at the same time). I wasn’t aware there was an entirely separate album though. […]
Warbringer has been around for a while. I recall watching them live a few times back when I was pushing Florida Death Metal. They’re a throwback to the early days of Death Metal when the genre really hadn’t distinguished itself from Thrash Metal. The results are pretty awesome. I hope you’ll check them out.
Old School Florida Metal – Raped Ape
When I was a 14 year old kid just getting into metal, Raped Ape was one of the local bands all the older metal heads use to talk about with respect and reverence. At the time, I wasn’t ready for that style of thrash and death metal. Around 1996 the band effectively disbanded. I hadn’t […]
Pertubator – “I Am The Night”
Perturbator is an amazing Retrowave Synth band (actually just one guy, though he tours with a band). The intro to this album is appropriate for the time and age we live in today. It’s clip from the dystopian film “The Network”. It’s worth a view by itself: Anyways, that’s the original clip that’s part of […]
More Odd Music – “Alice” by Sunn
Well, here’s some more odd music. A friend of mine turned me on to these guys a couple of years ago. Sunn is easily one of the oddest bands around. Most of their music is better suited as background noise for intelligent tasks or doing drugs. I don’t do drugs, but I do listen to […]
Strange Music – I Love It
Hands down, this is some of the strangest “metal” I have ever heard. Hope you like it. Also, check out Igorrr’s website.
While I’m admittedly a huge fan of Florida Death Metal, I do listen to a variety of music. I can’t count the number of times I’ve been pigeon-holed into being a ‘death-metal guy’. To be fair, I often play the role, because sometimes, being predictable can mean being acceptable. Regardless, I’ve always been a big […]
