So, my first contribution.This is something I should have listened to earlier in my life. A marvelous New Cuban Trova album, with some material having been written between '68 and '70. This is all accoustic material which changes my opinion about accoustic guitars being retarded. There's real poetry to it, and a whole load of emotion like very few things do.

Alkaline Trio - Goddamnit!

" Tongue-tied, bleeding from your eyes, even Christ himself would cringe at the sight of your scars. While you're counting sheep, i'll count my lucky stars. You were the last good thing i ever saw."

This is the closest thing I have to a guilty pleasure. Alkaline Trio is a Pop-punk/pop-rock band (depending on the release) from Chicago, and honestly, I'm not even sure why I like them. I hate just about every other band there associated with (like Hotwater music) but them I just have this undying love for. This is there first, and my favorite album of there's, and its also there most 'punky'. There lyrics range from really sappy, almost cheesy (but kinda cute) love songs, to depressing songs of loss and alcohol abuse. Hope you guys like this one.

Bikini Kill - Reject All American

Bikini Kill's last studio album, as requested by Chris.



Post-Rock from Japan. Others say they have a few Neo-Classical elements, but I am a bit skeptical about it so, yeah.
It is a good listen during the winter or the rainy season or when you just want to chill and play some flOwer or flOw on your PS3. really cool....really.

Fact: During the 5 minutes of typing everything you're currently reading. I accidentaly hit the "Publish Post" three times before actually writing anything and I edited the post twice because I made a typing error and forgot to put the link.

Holy fuck. This shit is bleak. Like majorly fucking sludge metal, for fans of bands like Eyehategod and Noothgrush, that high energy, doomy, fucking sludgy fucking music. Leechmilk is a band from Atlanta, Georgia a destructive combination of sludge grind and punk. These guys will fuck you up, the album is relatively short, but it'll blow you away.

Starvation of Locusts

The Mars Volta - De-loused in the Comatorium

Artist: The Mars Volta
Album: De-loused in the Comatorium
Genre: Experimental, Progressive Rock

This is The Mars Volta's first studio album. It's their most solid record to date mainly because of song structure. This album stays consistent with its musician's abilities to improvise and experiment without losing control over the song or the listener's attention. Their other albums tend to lose focus after a few minutes. This one has the best vocals, guitar, and drum work, so give it a listen, it's really awesome.

1. Son et Lumière - (1:35)
2. Inertiatic ESP – (4:24)
3. Roulette Dares (The Haunt of) – (7:31)
4. Tira Me a las Arañas – (1:28)
5. Drunkship of Lanterns – (7:06)
6. Eriatarka – (6:20)
7. Cicatriz ESP – (12:29)
8. This Apparatus Must Be Unearthed – (4:58)
9. Televators – (6:19)
10. Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt – (8:42)


Nico Vega - No Child Left Behind

Artist: Nico Vega
Album: No Child Left Behind EP
Genre: Indie/Alternative Rock

Nico Vega are a sweet little indie band from Los Angeles, California. The three-piece band has Rich Koehler playing guitar melody lines, Dan Epand laying the beats, and Aja Volkman on the suprisingly good vocals. The reason I like this band isn't because they're female fronted, it's because their frontwoman actually has a unique voice. It's almost raspy, but the way she hits the melodies is sweet. She's also cute, which is a plus. Chris, you'll probably like this band.

1. Gravity (2:34)
2. Be Giving (3:37)
3. Wooden Dolls (4:08)
4. This Too Shall Pass (2:13)
5. Medicine Man (3:02)


Johnny Hollow

Artist: Johnny Hollow
Album: s/t and non-album tracks
Genre: Darkwave, Ambient, Electronica, Classical

I bring you Johnny Hollow. This band is nothing short of amazing. It mixes electronic ambiance with gothic and darkwave melody. Kitty Thompson plays the cello, and uses it in conjunction with several effects pedals. Janine White displays her beautiful yet haunting vocals over Vincent Marcone's electronic handiwork. The group produces a unique sound which is "sometimes uplifting and, at other times, deeply oppressive"(Urptsukidojis Pad webzine). This band is perfect for deep thought, creative inspiration, or even when you just feel the need for ambiance. If you like the group's sound, you should check out their website: designed by Marcone himself, it's every bit as breathtaking as the music. Also included is a folder of remixes of some of the album songs, so enjoy that.

Album Tracklist:
1. Bag of Snow
2. Halfway To God
3. Untitled
4. Rasputin
5. Motherless Child
6. Gone
7. Stolen
8. Mary
9. Dark Thing
10. Shock Me Peter
11. Skeleton Song
12. Tremor

Sonic Youth - Experimenta Jet Set, Trash and No Star

Sonic Youth's most popular album, including their highest charting single, Bull in the Heather, the video of which featured a cameo appearance from Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill. This is an easy album to get into, but infinitely rewarding.


Cat Power - You Are Free

Probably Cat Power's most critically acclaimed album, You Are Free is full of stand out tracks. I believe Eddie Vedder guests on one, and Dave Grohl is responsible for the drums across the album. The centrepiece is, as ever, Chan's voice though, which sounds clearer and more confident than on previous releases. Some claim the middle of the album drops a little, but really, I think most of the tracks are strong and have no real complaints, even of Vedder.

Stoner Rock Fat Pack

This is a small chip off my stoner rock collection that I thought I would share with you. Some things you may have, other things you wont. I put on 4 albums and one EP.

Alix-Ground: Italian Female fronted Stoner Rock, good stuff.

Boris-Heavy Rocks: Those damn slant eyes did it again with this awesome stoner rock album with some fat riffs.

Brant Bjork-Brant Bjork and the Operators: After leaving Kyuss and Fu Manchu, he started his own line of music. Really chilled out, smooth songs, I love this album.

Deasert Sessions-1&2: Every one knows you cant say "Stoner Rock" with out saying "Josh Homme is a god among men". Deasert Sessions is a improve music band started by Homme that hike there ass out to this ranch in the middle of teh desert, do lots of drugs, and make albums on the spot, interesting stuff to say the least.

Slo Burn-Amusing the Amazing: After the Death of Kyuss, John Garcia helped form Slo Burn. Sadly they were short lived (perhaps they got high and forgot they were a band?) and only put out one EP, but its a really really good EP. "Whilst Kyuss ripped a hole into the desert, these guys plugged their guitars into it."


High energy sludge band out of Savannah, GA. I hear they sound like Kylesa, but I haven't listened to enough Kylesa to really make that statement myself. High fucking energy, heavy as shit, really good.

Rebel Meets Rebel

I gotta say, I wasn't too sure how much I'd like this, but when I gave it a listen I found out that it's fucking ace. Rebel Meets Rebel was a project started by Outlaw Country star David Allen Coe along with the Pantera brothers Dimebag Darrel and Vinnie Paul. This is fucking awesome southern rock sounding shit. I know Pantera isn't that popular with a lot of you, but give this a listen. You won't be disappointed. It was released in 2006, two years after the tragic murder of Dimebag. This album has some great songs on it such as Heart Worn Highway, Cowboys Do More Dope, and Nothing to Lose.

Legion of the Damned

Zero's membership is expired or some shit so I'm uploading this for him.

This is Legion Of The Damned, a cool little Death/Thrash band I stumbled across on They are pretty awesome, and have a odd singer. His voice is somewhere between a throaty Death Metal growl, and a Thrashier shriek. Although I think there are zero leads in the songs, the songs still kick ass. The riffs are awesome and the drumming is fucking tight, so download it before I hit you.

Cult of Luna

Artist: Cult of Luna
Album: Discography
Genre: Doom Metal (early), Sludge

Cult of Luna are an eight-piece band from Sweden. Their initial sound is that of crushing Doom Metal, but they later mellow out into Sludge similar to that of Jesu, Isis, Neurosis, and Callisto. Hell, if you like any of those bands, you'll like Cult of Luna. I've given you their discography. I haven't listened to their newest album, Eternal Kingdom, yet, but I recommend The Beyond and Somewhere Along the Highway for starters.

Cult of Luna (2001)
The Beyond (2003)
Salvation (2004)
Somewhere Along the Highway (2006)
Eternal Kingdom (2008)
