Oh you have to be kidding me. If this cancels my Kyuss/The Sword show (or has Kyuss pull out) I'm gonna be pissed. I've already had 2 shows hosed recently (Mogwai being unable to get visas and Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza pulling out of their tour) so this'll be just my luck.

Also what a tool.

Glad I got to see them when I did. This probably means the supposed new album is done-for now unless they get Scott Reeder back on board (I hope they get Scott Reeder back on board.)

I had never listened to Dark Castle, but finally checked them out since they're playing in Orlando and Tampa with Yob and some other great bands, and I discovered this video.

I may have said this in here before. If so, sorry.

A few years ago I was wondering around outside a bar and we heard some music coming from an auto garage down the street, we got some tall boys to go and stumbled upon Dark Castle playing in the garage. The best drunken discovery.

I guess it would depend on who the actually t-shirt manufacturer is, but when I ordered a Clutch shirt from them a few months ago, the XL was sized more like an XXL. I'm a fatso from the US and I found it quite big.

Accidentally stumbled into the YOB/Dark Castle backstage area while searching for the bathrooms; they were all super loving nice and happy to chat/hear my myriad praises. Obviously I tried not to bug them too much, but I couldn't walk away from that without a 'hail Satan.' What a good show.

I'm looking for a bit of insight from some folks who live around Raleigh and are familiar with King's where YOB is playing Monday night. I'm coming from out of town but I used to live in Raleigh. I've only been to the old King's.

What time do you think YOB will go on?
Is street parking available around King's or should make other plans?

I'm going to be cutting it close timing wise so any useful information is much appreciated.

I am not 100% positive, but I believe there is a pretty big parking deck relatively close to Kings. Don't know if they normally start the shows on time there or not.

Saw Kyuss Lives for my second time last night. Great show, with a particularly awesome rendition of Whitewater being the highlight of the night. I guess Nick posted bail and was free to go overseas, which was surprising but awesome. He was grinning and chain-smoking the entire for the duration of the show. Also saw Monster Magnet on Thursday, which was also good, but god drat Wyndorf has been adding on the pounds after he sobered up. Good for him.

I'm the exception actually. I live in Asheville but I'm on vacation at Emerald Isle so I'm driving up from the beach to Raleigh. It kind of worked out better for me as I don't think the YOB TBA show in Charlotte ever materialized which I would have missed because of the beach trip. I'm so stoked this worked out.

I gave them a spin a few days ago. Only listened to a couple songs. I really dug the sound but came away feeling the two songs I listened to were a bit similar. I love the sound though. I'll have to make it all the way through and see how I feel.

Also for more content, the new Kamni folks have been speaking about is excellent. I liked the first album but I was still up in the air about them them. A.T.O.M. seals the deal for me. They are doing good stuff.

So basically I'm late to the isis party and just found out how good panopticon is. I've listened to oceanic a few times but I've just kept going back to panopticon since it's so good. How are their later releases? Also, please suggest other post metal stuff for me to try out!

I pretty strongly dislike everything post-Panopticon. But a large part of that is probably because I hold Celestial and Oceanic in such high regards. Panopticon was what got me into them, but those two are what keep me coming back (and going to shows). The live albums are also pretty well worth a listen in my opinion. The newer songs come across a good bit better live.

Just got back from YOB in Raleigh. One word review: fuccckkkkkkkkkk.

Everything they did after Panopticon (which was kind of boring) is poo poo.

Neurosis is the archetype of that stuff, so check em out if you haven't. If you want more, check out Amenra. They're probably the only Neurosis worship band I like. Old (pre-Salvation) Cult of Luna is ok too, if a bit more generic.

I wondered why post-panopticon Isis sucked, then I read that they opened for Tool on a huge tour after releasing Panopticon. So there ya go.

I'm gonna disagree with the post-panopticon hate. I think Oceanic is still their best, but Wavering Radiant really struck a chord with me. It's definitely more Tool-like in the way they handled ambience and structure, but I don't see that as a bad thing. The songs (ghost key is a good example) have some fantastic dynamics, and it was amazing to see live. I caught them on their third? to last show ever, and while it was more of a "greatest hits" than I would've liked, something can be said for the way the newer songs translated.

Also keep in mind they broke up because they'd felt the idea had run it's course. Wavering Radiant is a pretty good "farewell" IMO. It's also neat to listen to Red Sea/The Mosquito Control EPs to see how far the band came, while still keeping certain elements consistent.

Being 2+ hours away from the show and it being a weeknight I just sat at home and listened to Atema. Yeah, it's pretty drat great.

I'm also a huge fan of Oceanic and Panopticon and I second the Wavering Radiant love, while I think that In the Absence of Truth has one good song, that is 1000 shards.

Strangely, I just never quite managed to get into Celestial, even though I love the rawer sludge of Mosquito Control and The Red Sea.

As for the other post-metal suggestions, Neurosis after A Sun that Never Sets is pretty much the band to check to see where Isis was coming from. I guess I could also recommend, like the other goons, Cult of Luna (Salvation) and Intronaut (Prehistoricisms and Valley of Smoke), as well as Giant Squid (Metridium Fields) and Battle of Mice (A Day of Nights, though the band isn't as good, and I'm always biased when talking about anything involving Julie Christmas).

The Galilean Satellites comes as a 2-disc set, one metal album and one ambient. Play them together in sync and its absolutely massive.
