Picking up from HM #2...
oh the horror ...
If you're referring to Ozzy's dreadful mascara job in the OP I couldn't agree more...
From Dime's last album...
Have we run out of heavy metal?
Ah well - how about some Disney music:
For some reason my phone doesn't let me link YouTube but I've had an odd obsession with Butcher Babies for the last few months.
I get a little happier every time they show up on my Pandora.
Within Temptation - Deep Within live
Glad to see this thread revived from the dead. I guess I'll exhume this old tune along with it...
Voivod - Invisible Planet
Rock on female Gothic Metallers!
Jade Etro (cover) Dark Tranquillity "Auctioned"
Here's your metal....fer reals.
That Godsmack kinda sounded like Tool but better ... or did Tool steal from Godsmack ?
This song made a comeback even the younger kids - the Millenials consider that song to be a rock anthem now. Maiden have marketed themselves to a young crowd again apart from us old guys listening to the Paul Dianno years, just like Metallica appealed to a new younger audience with Load and reLoad, Garage Days re-revisted etc.
I haven't seen Maiden since 1990. But my friends and I were debating - Janick Gers was definately plugged in LIVE on "No Prayer For the Dying" tour but onstage nowadays since Adrian returned do you think Janick Gers is plugged in to an amp when throws his guitar around, doing those high marching steps, running around in circles during the gigs ?
Stefanie Duchene - The One I Drowned
Yeah - right after Ozzys "Farewell Tour" 26 years ago. I was there man.
one of Detroits finest ...
Brad Savage and the Cockroaches - "Three Stooges Rock 'n Roll"
I wouldn't be surprised if they were both Black Sabbath fans in their youth. They all have that deep heavy sound that I've always liked. Pantera, Mudvayne and their progeny HellYeah brought some of that, too, but Korn might be the ultimate bludgeon metal band in my book.
Speaking of Pantera and HellYeah, RIP Vinnie Paul...
Can't leave his other band out...
Voivod - Order of the Blackguards
That is -
if the band in question is really playing LIVE at all ...
So many live bands ARE just plain faking it nowawdays ... and not just the Radio Disney pop stars like Britney in Las Vegas, Justin Beiber, and all these so called lip sync "Divas" like Katy Perry. Even U2 pipes in so many pre-recorded parts, so does Muse, and Coldplay, reportedly.
According to the Indepenant UK - entire concerts are pre-loaded
into a Laptop at the back of a stage - Indie bands do it all the time.
Musician calls for big bands to come clean on secret backing tracks
"Concert-goers are used to the likes of Britney Spears lip-synching, but even credible indie bands have their whole performance pre-loaded onto a laptop, according to J Willgoose Esq, of dance-rock duo Public Service Broadcasting."
"I’ve seen bands turn up to some pretty big gigs with the whole set pre-loaded onto a laptop as a one hour-long stereo file, then play a few notes on a synth or guitar while the laptop does the hard work, or the frontman sings along to 18 perfectly tuned vocal harmonies coming off a computer,” claims Willgoose, on the Q magazine website. “Isn’t that a bit of a con?”
Here are clips of Motley Crue and Paul McCartney who appear to using either pre-recorded guitar parts, (Niki Sixx stops playing) or like McCartney just fakes the whole thing ... there is a device called "AUTO TUNE LIVE" where if the guitarist misses notes, the computer comes in and fills in the entire missing parts, some bands play to drum loops, many singers the back up band is simply miming. The fakery in the music concert industry in America is so embarrassing.
Here is Niki Sixx: "look Ma, no hands!"
Can you imagine being Britney and when her voice falters "AUTO TUNE LIVE" comes in for anything slightly out of key and just sings the entire song parts. Justin Timberlakes, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, or Demi Lovato making 10s of millions ripping people off, charging $200 a ticket, faking the vocals, music, or lip syncing. Nothing is real about so many musicians now. They don't write the song, sing without AUTO TUNE, and many bands can't play as a group or Live because it was all done with synthesizers, studio players, and drum machines to begin with. Many just have the Laptop right next to the singer.
Oh Paul how awful - look at McCartney fake it Live.
