Set To Fail - Lamb of God
“We are often hesitant to look at other faiths or to examine our own critically because we feel that, in doing so, we are being disloyal to our own deeply felt convictions. ... And yet our beliefs are not worth very much if they cannot stand up to any scrutiny.” -- James Livingston.

Have you ever heard of Michal Jelonek, violin virtuoso, member of metal band "Hunter"?

No?

Well, doesn't matter. Recently I fell in love with his solo album - it's an excellent mixture of classical strings, heavy guitar riffs and (even some) electronic stuff. Jelonek is not only a sensational composer, but also a great performer.

The top 50 countdown on [V]2, I think it's Nickleback or something, it's a bit whiny and not very good.

Welcome back, Bumblebee! And I agree with Nickelback. Back when I listened to music it was good, but from what I;ve heard of it now it's a bit whiny.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

Holyshit, that's awesome. Thanks for posting it. I wonder how long before he hooks up with Apocalyptica for some earthquake serenades?

I was listening to some Joe Satriani stuff on YouTube until my turdball kompoodr decided I shouldn't listen to any more.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Holy fuck. I hate, like, 90% of the Metal I get recommended but goddamn, that threw me for a loop. Cheers.

I think you deserve a new computer matey...perhaps you'll get one for Xmas or your birthday.

This reminds me of times gone by when I was struggling with inferior equipment.

Anyone who loves music needs a good computer so they can get ITunes and stuff like that. Of course it's a well known fact that MP3's lose a lot of the quality you get with vinyl and even tapes (although I have always hated casettes). My ears aren't good enough to notice the loss of quality though so when I'm listening to eg 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway' on mp3 I get almost the same kick out of it that I got 30 years ago when I was trying to get the vinyl record to play on my goddam ma & pa's stupid gramophone with the frikkin metal needles!!!

I took one album back to the shop 5 times before the poor guy at the record shop asked me what I was playing it on.

This is a new kopmudder. Three weeks old. Got it when I blew up my last one. Can't afford to buy my very own, gotta use what they give me. FML.

I once found myself sitting on the same bit of beach as Bruce Foxton.

Cool. I always felt a bit sorry for Foxton, Weller had his solo career and Rick Buckler did some stuff with a new band but Foxton was playing with a Jam tribute act (correct the last time I heard)

Invaders Must Die. New Prodigy album!

I was having a haircut wearing my Prodigy shirt and while paying the barber asked if I'd heard the new album. That was the first I'd heard about it so I immediately went off and got it. Made my day to have someone volunteer useful information :D

Anyway, first impressions are very good, less guest vocalists and more Keith/Maxim vocals. I prefer it to Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned. Sounds like a cross between the vocals and aggressiveness of Fat of the Land, the keyboards/sampling of Always Outnumbered... and to a lesser extent the guitars and drums off Jilted Generation. Tracks I like most at the moment are Thunder (cool reggae-sounding sample) and Run with the Wolves (Dave Grohl guests on the drums :D )

You can't whack a bit of Rolf Harris. :D
