Okay, Coheed & Cambria types.
I was told I absolutely HAD to listen to these guys, being that I was a fan of Rush and that "they are so similar, musically." Well, they aren't...but, "okay, I'll give it a go!" I said.
So I gave it a go. I bought and listened to the album that was recommended to me...Second Stage Turbine Blade (a cool album name, and right up my jet-powered alley).
I listened to it again.
I listened to it a third time.
I hate them. Okay, maybe hate is a strong word. I dislike their music quite whole-heartedly.
Their musical structure is lacking, in my opinion. Their vocalist is muddled in the mix, making the lyrics virtually unintelligible...and he sounds like a breathy teenage girl.
Am I missing something? Do they have any instrumental-only tracks that I might like on other albums?
These guys are playing Coachella. That ought to be interesting.
I simply can't wrap my head around it all.
A bit of proggy tech death for your Saturday morning enjoyment.
"Technical metal?" Is this a new genre?
Whatever. Holy crap! THAT WAS RAD!!!
Singing yo ho yo ho, a bottle of rum and off we go!
Lets get this thread back to what it was started for, please. Thanks.
Talk about the music, not the musician's political leanings.
