To throw another band out there, what's everyone's opinion on The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza? I sort of "rediscovered" them today, and am really enjoying their grind element.


Now were getting somewhere. I'm listening to them right now, I was waiting to see if someone mentioned them. They remind me of Ion Dissonance with a little more structure - which is saying something. I almost saw them with Kathleen Turner Overdrive once.

There's also a mention of Daughters, and although I adored Canada Sons, Hell Songs just didn't it for me. Too much..silly vocals. I'm not a fan of his moan/grumble thing.

Other bands that are in serious need of mentioning:

Destroyer Destroyer
Vessels Cast From Crippled Hands
The Heartland
Heavy Heavy Low Low
The Great Redneck Hope

The dual-vocals are what really get me. Is this exclusive to their Courtside Seats album?

They lost a vocalist somewhere down the line I believe. On their earlier albums Kids Kids Kids and Courtside Seats go the Greatest gently caress of All Time they still had him but he left for some reason.

Agreed about their new album. It's very good at times and very poor at others - it seems as if the vocalist got a bit lazy.

Their best song is in fact Tragic Tragic Track Jacket.

P.S. If you want to listen to music that will keep you from sleeping at night, listen to Machinist.

ok guys sorry i take everything i said about the band back. i watched the video again and ive decided that the MACHINE GUN cliche-breakdown into the EXPLOSION SAMPLE followed by the SPINNING LEG KICK is absolutely the best thing in music ever.

I think I thought this band was trying to be serious, but actually this is one of the best parody bands ive ever seen.

I've been listening to a lot of Born of Osiris and Liferuiner recently. Question about Liferuiner: are they actually edge or are they mocking the tough-guy edge kids?

My buddy used to play bass for Life Ruiner, and he used to be very straight edge - he even has "X" Tattoos. When he decided he wanted to smoke weed because it's a great time they kicked him out of the band and called him a poser and all his poo poo, then wrote a song about him. It's pretty old and it's from back when they were still playing small sceney shows, so maybe they've changed, but I know for a fact that back then they were obnoxiously straight edge.

Lye By Mistake - This band is what you would get if you crossed The Dillinger Escape Plan and Between the Buried and Me. They are absolutely insane musicians, and while I guess you could label it as Progressive Metal, they really actually are literally very progressive, often having multiple genre changes in one song.

A cross between the Dillinger Escape Plan and Between the Buried and Me is a terrible description of Lye By Mistake. Entirely different sounds, entirely different techniques, and entirely different bands. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

You probably need to start/find a venue there first... it's kinda sad when everyone from London goes to St. Thomas for metal shows. It's hard to have a scene when there's nowhere for touring bands to play save for the Lions Hall!

I've been to some shows at some smaller venues like Call the Office or some other place I forget the name of. Some fairly big names come through, but I know what you mean about the scene, it's sort of dead. But that's why I'm here, to give it some life!

As Hope Dies is a pretty sweet atheist metalcore band from a few years back that broke up.

I've been looking for Athiest metal bands for a long time now. There seem to be very few or they at least go unnoticed due to the literal swarms of Christian-core or whatever you want to call it that's flooding the hollow minds of fifteen year olds everywhere. My roommate, although not fifteen, is very religious and I find him listening to songs with lyrics about punishing Athiests and loving Jesus.

edit: Maybe it's just that Athiests don't preach their message, or convey it as obviously?

Anyway, anyone heard of Wish for Wings? I haven't listened to them much, but I really like their song Day by Day.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksHXdLwvNN0

Okay, this is exactly the kind of poo poo I'm talking about. I'm not trying to bitch at you or anything, but this fits that comment I made about christian-core. Listen to 2:43 in that link you posted and tell me that's a good transition or even a transition at all. I feel like these guys got together one weekend and said "hey, want to write uninspired Christian hardcore with a breakdown or two?", and the other guys all said "YEAH BRUTAL XXX!!!".

My point is not to rip you apart for liking this band, I hate when people do that. I know people like it and I don't, and that's my business. I just want to know if I'm alone on an island in the middle of a sea, and as the climate change that is Christianlazycore melts the ice caps that are musical variety and originality, causing the water of endless drone to rise; will I still be alone on this island or will more be forced up to the high ground to join me?

Does anyone understand my analogy?

Business Raptor
Jun 3, 2009



My point isn't that Christian metal is bad, I'm using the word Christiancore as a sort of example. It's just the fact that it's now "hip" or "totally rad" to be in a Christian band that sounds like every other band. For the most part.

Add a lazy hardcore breakdown or an auto-tuned lazy melodic part and you're set. Add a two-step, play in any order, and you're good.

Business Raptor
Jun 3, 2009



Now, now, I never said I don't like breakdowns or music some people would refer to as noise, but that's not your point.

I don't think that the most popular music is that way because people like it, per se; it's more so because what is being played is what people listen to, and that sort of stems off of itself. For example, Timbaland comes out with a song that everyone loves because it's Timbaland, and then Akon comes out with a song that sort of sounds like that too (or at least like the genre), and it all sort of stems off of itself until eventually it might become something new, but people still like it because they followed it for so long. It's a form of evolution, I guess. The same can be said about any genre, it's just that I used the radio as an example because it seems to be the majority opinion.

Although this phenomena (while not proven in any way, shape, or form) might lead some to say "Hey, don't listen to that, you only like it because it's on the radio!", I understand that each person has their own taste and can listen to what they want to. I just don't think it is a stream on both ends like you say. I dislike the wave of monotonous whatever-core for different reasons than people would dislike what I listen to.

Looking at the lyrics, there's nothing blatantly Christian about them.

They're called Wish for Wings, their myspace is myspace.com/wishforwingsxxx, and they have a song called afterlife. I remember hearing something Christian in their lyrics too, but I'm not about to go and look for it because I think the evidence is almost overwhelming. Once again it's not the fact that they're Christian that makes them bad, it's the fact that they're Christian infused with the same thing as everybody else, making it even more the same as everybody else. Just very uninspired I find. You're right on both accounts: I was saying they're very Christian AND I was comparing them to Christiancore.

And on the topic of The Faceless, I've always really liked them, but only specific songs. I remember a while back I got web demos for Ghost of a Stranger, An Autopsy, and Dig Out Your Scars. While Dig Out Your Scars was obviously a little weak the other two were fantastic. When they came out the with the album however they remixed the songs and changed a few parts around, so it sort of sounds a little off on the album but still good. I just wish they would make up their mind about what kind of music they want to play and not have all the songs on the album sound like different genres. Haven't heard their new stuff though.

Please tell me SOMEONE still listens to The Sawtooth Grin?

you should post some lyrics because this sounds hilarious

These are some of the songs I could get a hold of, a lot of them don't have lyrics up just a few lines here and there make me go all

Some of the worst rhyming in history. They obviously didn't think about it, they just said "let's write brutal songs about Jesus and poo poo":

Horror - With Blood Comes Cleansing

It's written in the pages.
You have been warned for years.
Armageddon's coming,
The sum of all your fears. 2x

You chose whom you would serve.
You chose your side,
Now you get what you deserve.

You chose your side,
Now pay the price.

The battle lines,
Have been drawn,
Knee deep in blood,
We'll sing our victory song. 2x

War like this world,
Has never seen;
The time for mercy has passed.

Evil shall triumph no more.
This world wins no more.

It's written in the pages.
You have been warned for years.
Armageddon's coming, the sum of all your fears. 2x


I also find the lyrics to this song particularly terrible, they're posted on the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7ha4VCwZTI

Heed the Sound - Cry of the Afflicted....ugh:

Echoes ringing in my mind.
They're crying surrender, surrender your will.
Echoes ringing in my mind.
A voice that once whispered is growing and can't be ignored.

Decrease my name.
The grief thatís found in me, You've broken.
Increase your name.
The grace thatís found in me you've spoken.

Hear it clearly declared.
This weakness that held me,
is weakness no more.
Hear it clearly declared.
This whisper of thunder, is deafening.

Decrease my name.
The grief thatís found in me, You've broken.
And replace what I hate.
Increase your name.
The grace thatís found in me you've spoken.

A quiet voice, that once I ignored.
The catalyst, my reason for standing here now.
The Voice of the voiceless.
Now speaks, now speaks through me.
The Hope of the Hopeless.
Your grace, is rising up in me


I think this one is the guy from Stick To Your Guns pretty much saying "hey tell me whatever you want, but I'm not listening because I believe this":

I will stay true to this .. I wont fall .. this means more now than ever before .. your doubt drives me and I bite my tongue .. you hate me and everything I am .. and everything I believe .. say what you will cause I have learned to turn the other cheek .. say what you will .. this is mine this is for me we will rise up together .. we are one we are family .. this world may bring us down .. but it cant tear apart this family .. be strong .. keep your head up .. because this struggle will only get harder to handle .. this is where my heart lies

Welp, it was minus 18 with the wind chill last night in London, Ontario, and if you've been keeping up-to-date on the transit situation in the city you would also know that the bus strike doesn't end until tomorrow. The Protest the Hero show was over a 45 minute walk away, so that's all that can be said about that.

And, to counteract all of these equally as welcome bands, one of my favs.

AND, on the same note as some of the more recent bands being added; a buddy of mine I jam with sometimes (we went to go to high school together) went an entirely different direction than what we played and sings for this band. Other than the fact that he stole some lines and song names from one of my bands (I think...), it's catchy for the kind of music it is. Haha.
