Title: Bands You Are Listening to Right NOW
Post by: Crimzen on April 14, 2011, 10:23:34 am
Of course I listen to MaSu a lot. Pretty much all the time. But there are other bands that come in and out of my headphones. Some tunes just hit the spot. As of now, what bands are rotating your headphones at the moment?

Mine are:

MaSu
Alkaline Trio
Infected Mushroom
Deftones
and Daft Punk

It might be difficult to find on the web, though I haven't been updating on my asian playlists for few years. Nevertheless if you want I can upload it somewhere :)

This is another reason I started this thread. Because everyone has top bands they listen to. But constantly we're always listening to other things. Sometimes random that people haven't even heard of before! So I hope this thread is a good way for others to find new music as well.

Definitely I found one of their albums: Funk. I'm waiting to get it, can't wait to hear this sound. The only other asian music I have is (and mainly Japanese I think): Mad Capsule Markets, Dir En Grey, and Boom Boom Satellites.

I like this thread ^-^

Right now: The Flashbulb's "Soundtrack To A Vacant Life" because it's good music when you want to get some work done, as it's not too distracting.

I am really enjoying listening to the Yoshida Brothers' best of compilation - it's traditional japanese music with the traditional instruments, played really well.
On the same sort of scale, crazy-fast flemenco-style guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela are pretty mind blowing, and even my mum likes them :P

I just started listening to this album since you put this up here and I have to say. Very good! I'm surprised how many tracks there are. They're short but it all flows very nicely :)

Listening to:
- Rock:
Shakra - HardRock as it should be. I like it very much. Shakra - Ashes to Ashes (live) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kv1e-7uWvlk) unfortunatelly the best tracks (despite this one) aren't online as streams...

- Soundtracks:
2 Steps from hell -- Heart of Courage (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRLdhFVzqt4) So full of epicness

- Elektro
Headhunterz -- Forever az one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKPzAXAO9M4) not just plain jump/hardstyle but a very colourful song with different schemes of elektronic music. The Voice / Story / Telling of each song from Headhunterz just amazes me. And to be honest - there are no concerts, that are as impressive like Qlimax (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vf5V81bTHj0&feature=related) or Defqon.1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpLRxVlXdbQ) *start at 1:30*

these 3 are the ones i like the most in the genre but not the only thing i listen to but those i think i should mention before the others

Right now, I'm listening to Jeff Buckley's Live At Sin-é. It's pretty good, if you are into that sort of music, where here, isn't everyone :P

EDIT: You got me downloading some Shakra now. Thanks :D

Yes, Funk is the only album of theirs I have and I really like it :). If you ever watched There She Is animation series you will recognize the "Happy Birthday to Me" song (was used in There She Is step 2). Should you happen any other of their albums I'd love to put my hands on it too!

Also, if you like this kind of music I can recommend you Witches, another Korean rock music. One of their songs (Ddota K.y... Ddota!! Kunyo!!) was used in There She Is step 1 :).

Righto, let's see now

Astral Doors: It's pretty much impossible to make traditional heavy metal better than these guys.

Amon Amarth: Second best Swedish band ever.

Turisas: STAND UP AND FIIIIIGHT!

Within Temptation: The new album is a gigantic improvement over the tripe they've been putting out recently.

Battle Beast: Fuck yeah.

Evanescence - I got Bring Me To Life stuck in my head so...
Foo Fighters - New album came out earlier this month
Jonathan Coulton - Recently discovered his music, so slowly getting through listening to his back catalogue
Skrillex - Saw there was a new EP out, did a curious download and I like the vocal samples and shit. Quite catchy.

And that's about it at the moment.

Anyways, came back because I forgot something....

Professor Elemental: A rapper, characterizing as a goofy Imperial British gentleman and mad steampunk scientist. His album The Indifference Engine (http://professorelemental.bandcamp.com/album/the-indifference-engine) is HEEE-LARIOUS. Seriously, no matter what kind of music you're usually into, give it a go. I'm a sworn, red-blooded metalhead and I fucking love it.

Once I have the better internet I will definitely give this a listen! That's why I created this thread to find new music by getting into other peoples listening collections xD

And that's about it at the moment.

The new Skrillex that's out is actually a leaked version of his full album he's working on. When he was in a hotel in Italy he got his laptop and both hard drives stolen out of his room. Next thing you know half of what he was working on was on the net. Sad really, so whatever you have unfortunately is unfinished work :/ but Skrillex is freaking awesome though! But he's now in the redo process.

I did not know that. That's actually pretty sad that people would do that.

The thing I downloaded is on his myspace page. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites - isn't that official?

Oh yes :) that is official. I thought you were talking about the new one. My friends were all talking about the new Skrillex EP that hit the net and after further investigation and going on Skrillex's Facebook I found out that someone had stolen his stuff and put a half-finished album up on the net for grabs, it is quite sad :(

But what you have is the official free EP :D My favorite song on that is Scatta I love playing that at stoplights people just go WTF?

Argh, compression! Seriously, I can't listen to that crap quality music without my ears hurting. I got 5 seconds into Äppelträdet and had to stop. The 5 seconds I heard though were nice :D

EDIT: I thought I'd never say this, but YouTube has better quality: http://www.youtube.com/user/Skraeckoedlan
For audiophiles like me, this is slightly better :P

Hehe, guess any audio connoisseurs won't be buying the album then. I usually only react when the sound is really, really crappy – your earforce seem to be a lot more perceptive than mine.

Weird that they'd use awful compression when letting the world face their music for the first time. Guess it's a common trick to make people buy the record. Or wait for a flac upload on tpb ;)

Yes, my "earforce" is better than most, my uncle is a sound engineer (or something like that :P).
I don't think it's the bands fault. I mean, the quality is normal of a YouTube video, just terrible on the MySpace page. I'm sure it's just the compression from the MySpace thingys.
Either way, I'll see if I can get a copy of the new album when it is released.
One thing I didn't understand though, is that there was mention of an EP, but I can't find anything anywhere...

just discovered my Siddharta (http://www.siddharta.net/home)-CDs and started to feel the music again :) The Band is quite varid in their style. Although I haven't heard something from the last album the Petrolea and rh- worked out quite well :)
Mainstyle is.. Rock i guess. The Band plays all instruments live. Of course they have a keyboard with them, but when you hear a saxophon, harp or violin it is most likely one. When i saw them live in 2004 any Bandmember despite the drummer played at least 3 different Instruments.
Most of their songs are slowenian, but they released the rh- for the european marked in english too.

Pounding samples:
Siddharta - My Dice (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeYpvq41P6E) eng
Siddharta - THOR (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0HW0lImLpo) slo

The Mars Volta have recently hooked me. A friend/mentor of mine recommended them to me, but I made the original mistake of downloading their "live" album that was "creatively mixed". That means it had stuff like clips of crowd noise interspersed with talks about the show and sound checks, then snippets of actual song. This made it one of the biggest Pieces of Sh*ts I have ever listened too. That kind of put me off, but listening to some of their actual music, I do enjoy it.

Obviously, MaSu is up there with stuff I listen to regularly (how could it not? :P)

I also have had this song (http://youtu.be/bjPqsDU0j2I) stuck in my head for quite a while ???

As what I'm listening to right now: After seeing them in concert and really liking them, I've taken a liking to Alter Bridge, I've been listening to their stuff a lot lately.

On top of that I just got Persona 2 Innocent Sin on PSP and listening to that epic soundtrack (Shoji Meguro is a fav composer of mine)

Okay, now I understand. I already knew about him. I just didn't realise his username was megadokyo.

EDIT: Bought the BGC - IN album and I am downloading it right now. Bandcamp lied to me ("£2.55? More like £2.64!") but who gives a crap. By the looks of the reviews, this is going to be the best £2.64 I ever spent. If I like it enough, I may even buy the physical version when (if) that is released, just to give this guy more monies.

I have the awesome Space Metal and Victims of the Modern Age by Star One, Ayreon's Actual Fantasy Revisited arrived in the post today and is currently on the media player, and I find myself wishing for a Machinae Supremacy, Sid-Metal Opera/concept album.

Also started listening to more Abney Park recently.

Probably a lot lighter than what anyone here is listening to, but outside of MaSu I don't really like metal all that much haha. I'm more of a grunge/punk/alternative kind of guy.

Knife Party's new EP is out today!

KP consists of rob/gareth from pendulum, and define their genre as death electro/derpstep/seisure music :P
If you like electronic music, or hell, even if you dont, you NEED to check this out!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guLzPdhT3tA&hd=1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guLzPdhT3tA&hd=1) Rage Valley and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKzsktuqwyU (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKzsktuqwyU) Centipede are probably my favorites from the ep :) (to understand the intro of the last song; you should know that the track that really made pendulum famous was named 'Tarantula')
Listen to the whole song before you decide if you like it or not!

Edit: and the ep's for sale on http://www.beatport.com (http://www.beatport.com)

Engel.  :) They have a bit of dubstep influence on their newest one, not on all songs though. And I think that's a good thing, they've found a good new addition to their mix of melodeath-catchiness.

Just give a listen to the first song on that album: Tomorrow the world (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ai3l801ABg). Although my secret favorite is Bury me in willow (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWheG2911rU).

Well, there's this gem from Jeroen Tel: Tera Tokyo 2020 (http://soundcloud.com/maniacs-of-noise/tera-tokyo-2020), but if you want total and utter (SID) heaven, go for no less than all 23 minutes of Firing UP (http://soundcloud.com/maniacs-of-noise/maniacs-of-noise-firing-up). Done by Jeroen Tel (NL), Mick Rippon (AU), Thomas Mogensen (DK) and Thomas Egeskov Petersen (DK) (Maniacs of Noise).

It's available on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09dxlui6lmM) as well (I find that Soundcloud doesn't work in my Firefox. You may want to use IE or another browser for that.)
When you read the comments on Youtube, it gives a link to a site that has it up for download in MP3 format.

If only MaSu could make a song like this... Or heck, the next 23 minutes. :P

I love Blue Stahli, he has a lot of cool "soundtrack-like" music, ideal as background music. I have also been listening a lot to The Glitch Mob, they have a lot of cool, slightly different soundtrack-ish music aswell. I'd suggest their album 'Drink the Sea' among others.

Myself, I have just recieved Sybreed's newest album: God is an Automaton. Although many of the tracks for me personally are outside of what I would call my musical preference, there is a lot of awesomeness there. I suggest 'Line of Least Resistance' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZUh_Q3YJaU&hd=1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZUh_Q3YJaU&hd=1) (best show of Sybreeds general style, more like previous albums), 'Destruction and Bliss' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oepsivK1kV4&hd=1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oepsivK1kV4&hd=1)(listen to the whole track, this one is freaking EPIC. Best one on the album for me) and the title track 'God is an Automaton' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECYMUAfBJSw&hd=1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECYMUAfBJSw&hd=1) (perhaps the most interesting track).

Edit: keep in mind those youtube-videos dont have the best sound quality, so if you really want to give the tracks justice consider purchasing them!

Cell 7. Or [ Cell 7 ] if you really want to. According to Wikipedia, their genre is electronic / industrial / IDM. I like to call it "glitch rock", but it's more than that. Discovered them through the same record label that distributes the works of Celldweller and Blue Stahli, so if you know them, you know more or less what to expect.

If I had to describe it, I'd say it's some kind of a hybrid of rock and electronica, although it's more electronic music-oriented. It's pretty calm. The music is often lively, but the vocals are usually tame.

Best album I've heard in a few years.

The first few tracks I listened to started off really good and then got really dubsteppy, which isn't really my thing tbh. However the middle of the album I think might sell me on grabbing it for a few of the tracks. There is some real good atmospheric/melodic stuff in there, before going back into a dubstep-esque territory for a bit and then hitting it hard again for the last song. I might actually get this, thanks for the recommendation!

There is a mismatch between the music and her voice which ruins it for me.

Also, here is my latest addiction: Norwegian death rock band Kvelertak (http://"http://youtu.be/r7sIqyoRFiU").

It's kind of like mixing Danko Jones with black metal and adding a modicum of hardcore. Also, that video is one of the most badass and awesome I have ever seen.

Just got my preordered copy of Soilworks new album, The Living Infinite. It is awesome! I've only listened trough it once, but thats enough for me to say its definitely one of the best albums they have ever made,  and I daresay its one of the best albums that will be release in 2013.

One of the dangers with releasing a double-cd, 20-song album is that it easily drowns in filler tracks and that too many of the songs sound alike. But I must say that so far I'm very impressed with the variation among the songs, and the quality of the tracks in general.

Recommended!! (seriously, you need to get this)

The latest metal that I use to get rid of the cobwebs is from Chicago, Rubicon Cross (http://www.rubiconcross.net/), very MaSu'esque sound. Sounds better on real speakers than on an mp3 device.
