    Yeah, you really need to listen to 10,000 Days with oppressively loud headphones. That thunder crack usually makes me jump.

    I liked the first two albums well enough, but I didn’t pay attention when they released Ænima. I had mostly moved on from metal and was into punk and house/trance. But a friend who worked at a record store gifted me a copy, and I was impressed by what they’d done in the new album. Forty Six & 2 is still the gold standard for a Tool song, IMO.

    I still don’t listen to much metal these days. I have all the Baroness albums, most of the Mastodon, and some Sword. I know that’s skimming the surface of the modern metal scene, but I don’t care about being a music snob the way I did in high school or college.

    I am pumped for this new Tool album.

    Punk is metal.

    I was talking more of this, which Spotify threw at me, for some reason. It's not like I know the rest.




    Now, I'm outta here. You kids enjoy yourself. Don't get hurt!
    Genres are fussy pedantic nonsense in 2019, certainly. Recently read about a band I listen to where the author categorized the band as ‘’Post Reverb’’

    Still no. Its related, just as blues rock is related, but its an island of its own unique style (imho shitty sound and musicianship). KJ is not easy to pin down because of their varied song styles even on same albums, which is part of their influential appeal.

    This is always a fun reference:

    Randomly saw these guys playing at the local bowling alley the other night. The scene was kind of hilarious, but they actually put on a solid show.

    Enjoying that one


    I'm not usually into reading interviews with bands for whatever reason but I liked the story behind the album name.

    Tell me about the title Life Metal.

    ANDERSON: Well it’s a relative of death metal. I’ll just throw that out there. The story’s actually kind of humorous. We were at a party with Nicke Andersson from Hellacopters and Entombed. And he was talking about when Entombed had signed to Columbia Records in the mid-’90s. He started getting calls from his old friends in Norway in the black metal scene saying that he was a sellout and that he was no longer “death metal,” he was “life metal.” And [he was] actually getting death threats, I guess. So we thought that was the most insane thing we’d ever heard, and it kind of became an inside joke with the band. Like, when something, like, not gloom-and-doom was happening, it was “life metal.” A vocalist we work with, Attila [Csihar of Mayhem], was getting really into fitness on tour.

    O’MALLEY: Exercising in the morning and stuff instead of being dead in the back of the bus.

    ANDERSON: So, he would say, “Hey bros, I’m gonna go do some life metal.” It just became this inside joke among the band. I think the title was also a really accurate description or reflection of the music and also the mindset and the mood of the players on the record. Me and Stephen and Tos [Nieuwenhuizen], the keyboard player, [were] just at a point in our life where things were a different sort of tone and mood. And I think that’s reflected in the playing, which is really the important part. I think that the title reflects the atmosphere of the music.

    And really, the artwork for the record and the choices made there with the colors and stuff, it’s very different from our other records which are very … there are a lot of dark [tones] and a lot of blacks and whites and things like that.

    O’MALLEY: It’s also related to Venom. They started the whole thing. The descriptive types of metal.

    ANDERSON: Black Metal, right.

    Amenra - I'm a bit behind on this band but just discovered them because they are headlining a festival later this year



    Kowloon Walled City - I discovered they are opening for Neurosis and Yob. Super stoked! I love this band.
