Hughes & Thrall - I Got Your Number

Hughes & Thrall was musical rock project formed in 1982 by former Deep Purple and Trapeze bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes and guitarist journeyman Pat Thrall.

Around musicians this project is cited as a favourite album. By all accounts Glenn Hughes (bass and vocals in MK III and IV Deep Purple) 'stole' guitarist Pat Thrall after seeing him play with Pat Travers when that band opened for Def Leppard.

With Hughes suffering from addiction and alcohol abuse, this album was never really going to happen. The album is based of the classic 80's hard rock with a mixture of the funk styles so beloved of Hughes and a fusion texture from Thrall and it contains some very good material. Glenn's great vocal style is used well and creates some great effects of the tunes. Need to listen to tunes are 'The First Step of Love' (a real epic) and 'Muscle & Blood' (Great Riffs and heavy piece). The album was co-produced and mixed by Andy Johns, who had previously worked with the likes of Led Zeppelin, Free and The Rolling Stones.

Todays tune is one of the few videos that was made during this time, its a classic 80's tune, Enjoy!

Jamie T & The Pacemakers - Earth, Wind and Fire

Jamie Alexander Treays (born 8 January 1986), known by his stage name Jamie T, is a 24-year-old English singer/songwriter from Wimbledon, South London.

Jamie T and The Pacemakers is out touring and did make a stop earlier today in Stockholm, Sweden. The last and final stop of this tour, so it got a little bit special. Jamie seams to be a nice guy, full of humor. He and his Pacemakers entered the stage to a sold out venue, even the extra (Bio salon behind huge glass windows) was it didn't take long before he notice it and wanted the guys to come down and later on he screams... release the fish from the aquarium ...hehe. They did a great show in my point of view, not really my cup of coffee, but still from time to time my legs started to shake. Liked a tune that called Earth Wind & Fire from his latest record "Kings & Queens".

The crew was great, specially liked the Back-line tech, a real veteran in the business who had travled with bands like Roxy Music, Morriesey, Dinosaur Jr, Placebo, My Bloody Valentine plus many more.

Todays tune isn't a single or that any video is made for it so i pic a live clip that i found, the original version is below on the Spotify link, check it up.

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - Blinded By The Light

Manfred Mann were a British beat, rhythm and blues and pop band of the 1960s, named after their South African keyboard player and founder who later led the successful 1970s group Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The Earth Band's direction was very different from that of Mann's previous group Manfred Mann. They moved away from the pop-oriented three-minute format of his former group. The Earth Band was more of the stylistic approach of progressive rock with Mann's jazz-influenced Moog synthesizer playing and keen ear for melody. The biggest highlight from MMEB record vise is the Nightingales and Bombers, The Roaring Silence, and Watch.

Today MMEB is in Stockholm Sweden and will perform at Debaser and i believe it will a great evening off nostalgia for those who will attend.

Todays line up:
Manfred Mann – keyboards and vocals (founding member)
Mick Rogers – guitar and vocals (founding member)
Peter Cox – vocals
Jimmy Copley – drums and percussion
Steve Kinch – bass guitar

Todays tune "Blinded by the Light" is a song written and originally recorded by Bruce Springsteen. It is best known for a #1 hit version recorded by Manfred Mann's Earth Band."Blinded by the Light" was the first song on, and first single from, Bruce Springsteen's 1973 debut album Greetings from Asbury Park N.J. Springsteen's version was initially unsuccessful, and failed to appear on the music charts.Manfred Mann's Earth Band released a version of the song on their album The Roaring Silence. The song reached #1 on both Billboard's Hot 100 and on the Canadian RPM chart on 19 February 1977. The Manfred Mann's Earth Band recording of "Blinded by the Light" is Springsteen's only Number 1 single as a songwriter on the Hot 100. At the time, Manfred Mann's Earth Band set a Hot 100 record for the group with the longest time between #1 hits. Manfred Mann had previously hit #1 with Do Wah Diddy Diddy in 1964.

Rage Against The Machine - Killing In The Name

Back to a bit cocky music, H0UH!

These guys are well know for their cocky lyrics
and also for their rapmetal music.

They hade their first public performance
in somebody's living room, Orange County,
California in 1991.
in 1992, October they hade their
first European tour begins, supporting
Suicidal Tendencies
1993 they had their first sold-out
headlining show at Roseland, New York City.

They consist of:
Zack de la Rocha on vocals, lyrics
Tom Morello on guitar
Tim Commerford on bass guitar
Brad Wilk on drums, percussion

The political awearness of the Singer
Zack de la Rocha is quite something,
He has been particularly outspoken on the cause of the EZLN:
Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN)
He explained the importance of the cause to him personally:

“It is important for me, as a popular artist,
to make clear to the governments of the United States
and Mexico that despite the strategy of fear and
intimidation to foreigners, despite their weapons,
despite their immigration laws and military reserves,
they will never be able to isolate the
Zapatista communities from the people in the
United States... Through concerts, videos, interviews,
broadcasting of information at concerts, and our
songs'lyrics we have placed within reach of young people,
our audience, the experiences of the
Zapatistas; we act as facilitators of the ways
in which they can participate and put them in
contact with the organization and the Zapatista
support committees in the United States.

I choosed a tune from their debut album with
the same name as the group, from 1992.

Cheers Peeps,

Combichrist - Electrohead

Born from the metal and hardcore soul of Norway, Combichrist is the brainchild of Andy LaPlegua. Thats the topic of the biography by the band. As you probably notice yesterday when the tune was for Rammstein and their show on saturday the opening act on this tour is Combichrist. I saw part of this set and it was kinda interesting, not that i am into this kind of music, but hell, they delivered some real industrial electro metal and they can make some noise. The band is based on a drummer, percussionist, keyboards and a singer. The show at the globe together with Combichrist was dirty, filthy, heavy and black surrounded with great ground beats, looked very cool and sounded good. Combichrist is a US based band except from the band leader Andy who is from Norway.

Todays tune "Electrohead" taken from "What The Fuck Is Wrong With You People?" released 2007, the video is filmed LIVE at the Tele-Club in Ekateringburg, Russia on March 8, 2009.

Rammstein - Du Hast

Rammstein is a German rock band from Berlin, formed in 1994. The band consists of members Till Lindemann (lead vocals), Richard Z. Kruspe (lead guitar and backing vocals), Paul H. Landers (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Oliver "Ollie" Riedel (bass guitar), Christoph "Doom" Schneider (drums and electronic percussion) and Christian "Flake" Lorenz (keyboards). They are widely accepted as part of the Neue Deutsche Härte scene, alongside bands such as Oomph!, Eisbrecher, and Die Krupps. Their sound has been dubbed as Tanz-Metal. Their songs are usually in German, but they have also performed songs entirely or partially in other languages.

Rammstein takes their name indirectly from the German town of Ramstein-Miesenbach, the site of a flight show disaster on 28 August 1988. The band's signature song, "Rammstein", is a commemoration of the disaster. The band has released six studio albums, the latest is called "Liebe ist für alle da", which was released on 16 October 2009.

At the moment Rammstein is out touring and yesterday the tour landed in Stockholm for a show in The Globe, the arena was totally sold out. Rammstein is known for their frequent use of pyrotechnics during live performances. This time the set was made in heavy metal iron foundry look which would incorporate the main stage into the array of lighting pods, collapsing tower blocks and the vast quantity of pyrotechnics which even includes a shower of exploding dolls. The staging mainly consists of platforms with risers that had industrial pipework handrail around. I kinda funny and a bit wired part was the running machine piece that carries keyboard player Flake, which he uses throughout the show, i guess he covering several kilometers :) Overall the show was great and i guess most of the non German fans dont even speak or understand the language, but who cares, you go and see Rammstein for the show.
Support act during this tour is Combichrist

Rammstein motto "Other bands play, Rammstein burns!"

Todays tune "Du hast" is a song was released as the second single from their second album Sehnsucht. It is also arguably the band's most well known song, with "Feuer frei!" also being said to be their most well known song. The refrain ("Willst du, bis der Tod euch scheidet, treu ihr sein für alle Tage?") translates to "Do you want, until Death separates you, to be faithful to her forever?" Instead of answering with 'ja' ('yes'), the singer says 'nein' ('no'), finally breaking his silence earlier in the song: "Du hast mich gefragt, und ich hab' nichts gesagt." This is in present perfect tense and literally means "You have asked me, and I have said nothing," but is usually translated to past tense, "You asked me, and I said nothing."

David Bowie - Starman

After almost a week with some really hard stuff on this blog i guess it's time to slow things down, the 45 rpm records and now turn down to 33 rpm. Today i got a bit off a flashback, was thinking of a festival back in the days that called Lollipop and a band that was playing there who send out giant air balloons in the audience, a little same as Metallica did when they was out touring the last time. This artist was David Bowie and voila i had a tune in my head, so why not share it :) The tune was "Starman" David Bowie do not need any introduction as he is well known so i will talk more about the tune it self.

"Starman" is a single that was released in April 1972. The song was a late addition to The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.The lyrics describe Ziggy Stardust bringing a message of hope to Earth's youth through the radio, salvation by an alien 'Starman'. The music is in a nice pop rock tune with some acoustic guitar and a string arrangement. Some influences for the track are the T. Rex songs "Telegram Sam" and "Hot Love" Enjoy this piece!

Morbid Angel - Where the Slime Live

Y0o0o Here we go..Lets get really Evil and peculiar :p
Morbid Angel...
A bit darker than yesterdays tune, dont u think ?

Who are those people ?
Let me check....uuuhm.
They acually come from a town
I lived in for 4 years, Tampa in sunny Florida.
They begun as early as 1983.
Debuted with the album "Altars of Madness" in 1998
They done 8th albums and the 9th are on its way.

Their current members are.
Trey Azagthoth - guitar, guitar synthesizer, keyboards, backing vocals
Pete Sandoval - drums, percussion
David Vincent - bass guitar, vocals
Destructhor - guitar
Trey is the one that was in from the start.
This mysterious Destructhor took awhile
finding, but his real name is
Thor Anders Myhren and comes from Norway.

The band's original lyrical themes focused mostly on Satanism,
Occultism and anti-Christian subject matter,
but from Blessed Are the Sick onward,
the lyrics slowly moved toward the ancient Sumerian gods.

This tune comes from their 4th album "Domination"
Trey and David wrote it.

Headbang with me!

Love, Thetania

Cradle Of Filth - Temptation

I guess we are odd and peculiar today as well. :-]

Cradle Of Filth cool mix of metal and...a bit of should i describe it,
Im thinking; bit of Kraftwerk and somthing else I cant put my finger on at the moment.

They are from England and started up in 1991.
And I think that Dani is the only one left from the
start, although Paul came in at 1992 the he
quitted -96 then came back 2000.

These guys are into painting....their eyes...or faces.
Here is Charles

The band's style has been described as symphonic
black metal, gothic black metal, and dark metal.
However, the band's evolving sound has allowed
them to continue resisting definitive categorisation.

Cradle consist of:
Dani Filth on lead vocals
Paul Allender on lead guitar
Charles Hedger on guitar
Dave Pybus on bass guitar
Martin Marthus Skaroupka on drums, percussion
Ashley Ellyllon on keyboards and backing vocals

This Ashley is one hell of a woman,
2009 she become the new keyboardist for
Cradle of Filth, replacing Rosie Smith.
Ashley was classically trained on piano since age six,
and on top of that she got her bachelor's degree
in Music Composition and Theory from
Arizona State University.
Thats something huh ?!

This tune comes from their 7th album Thornography.
Released in 2006.

This band comes from Sweden, Gothenburg as so many metal band.
Seems like Gothenburg Breath Metal and Trash Metal. :-D

Adrian Erlandsson on drums, Anders Björler on guitar.
The Vocalist Peter Dolving joined in 1997.

Both of the Björler brothers and Erlandsson were
members of seminal melodic death metal
band At the Gates, as we showed u yesterday.

Here is one of the Björler brothers

Later on Erlandsson quitted and a Danish
drummer named Per Möller Jensen begun.

The sound is a bit diffrent but very close
to At The Gates, and I like it a lot.

They are confirmed as support for the
European club shows with SLAYER this summer.

I choosed a tune from the album Revolver
or rEVOLVEr released 2004.

Im not gonna write for ever lets see em :-D

Cheers, Dudettes and Dudes

At The Gates - Slaughter Of The Soul

At the Gates was a melodic death metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden, and a major progenitor of the Gothenburg death metal sound. Initially active from 1990 to 1996, the band reformed in 2007 for a reunion tour. At the Gates consist of Tomas Lindberg − vocals; Anders Björler − guitar, drums; Jonas Björler − bass guitar; Adrian Erlandsson − drums and Martin Larsson − guitar

In 1995 released their most commercially and critically successful album, Slaughter of the Soul, this one was released on the major metal label Earache Records. This album made a huge stamp in the history books of one of the leaders of the Swedish metal scene. The band got some international success and went out on tour in the U.S and after this tour and some festival gigs in Sweden the Björler brothers departed in 1996 and the remaining members decided that they never would be able to continue with out them and the band broke up.

On October 18, 2007, At the Gates announced several reunion shows for mid-2008, including Getafe Electric Festival, Roskilde Festival, Ruisrock, Wacken Open Air, Graspop Metal Meeting, Sweden Rock Festival, Gods of Metal, Hellfest Summer Open Air, Castle Festival, and Bloodstock Open Air, as well as a tour of Japan with The Dillinger Escape Plan, Into Eternity, Pig Destroyer, and Mayhem in May 2008. Throughout July 2008, they toured the US and Canada on what was dubbed the "Suicidal Final Tour", and played their final UK show at Bloodstock Open Air on Sunday on 17 August 2008. Some gigs in Gothenburg and Stockholm in September and they finished their last show in Athens, Greece on 21 September, 2008.

Today i was at one of the 2 Swedish dates at the Cinema for the screenings of "Under A Serpent Sun" documentary. It was really a great mix of history, footage, music and some great stories during the years and of course the reunion trip. A nice little anecdote that wasn't told in the video was during the last shows in Stockholm, they did 2 sold out shows were both Thetania and me was working at. Thetania was working as a Security during this show and after the first night when she was standing in the ditch right under "Tompa" (you who has seen him in action can guess that he head-bangs and sweat alot.) it was like it was pouring rain (Sweat and bear) so next night she asked if i could do the last songs as she didn't want to get soaked again :) oh well, ok i said yes. I had payed attention the night before so i knew that this should occur so i prepared myself with an umbrella :) when the last tunes was going on i shifted place with Thetania and waited for the moment when "Tompa" did his water pouring thing and was going to start his head-bang, when the moment came i folded out the umbrealla and "Tompa" notice it and started to laugh in the middle of his lyrics but as a "old man in the house" he manage to get back in line again and after the show we had a big laugh about it...and yes i got ok from "Tompas" wife to do it :) The documentary will be able on the new DVD release.

Todays tune is the title track from the 4th album "Slaughter of the Soul" and this clip is taken from the At The Gates 2008 Wacken Open Air festival appearance. The full show is due for release as part of the 3 DVD set titled "The Flames of the End" Enjoy!

Slipknot - Snuff

Slipknot is an American heavy metal band from Des Moines, Iowa, formed in 1995. Slipknot consists of nine members. The current band members are Sid Wilson, Joey Jordison, Paul Gray, Chris Fehn, Jim Root, Craig Jones, Shawn Crahan, Mick Thomson, and Corey Taylor. Slipknot's mix of grinding, post-Korn alternative Marilyn Manson's neo-shock rock and rap-metal helped make them one of the most popular bands in the so called nu-metal area of the late 90's. Each member of the band wears a identical jump suite with a unique homemade halloween mask. Have seen this band perform a few times and that is kinda cool, its a magical show from start to end.

Today its Valentines day and to celebrate this day i have picked a nice love tune for it, the tune is "Snuff" taken from their fourth album "All Hope Is Gone" 2009. Enjoy this piece with your love once.

The video, which takes the form of a short film, was co-directed by Shawn Crahan and P. R. Brown, and features Malcolm McDowell and Ashley Laurence of Hellraiser fame. Corey Taylor is seen for the second time in a Slipknot video without his mask and is cross-dressed at the end of the short film.

Ebba Grön - Mamma Pappa Barn

Ebba Grön was a Swedish punk band formed in 1977. Ebba Grön was not the hardest punk band in Sweden but they became very popular that any other bands in that genre. Some might say that they still consider as the kings of Swedish punk.

Todays tune "Mamma Pappa Barn" is a song from 1981, taken from their second album "Kärlek & Uppror" The tune is about family relations and the relations to one mans parents, the lyrics is very depressing even if the tempo is very high. Mamma Pappa Barn" is the only music video that has been recorded and can be seen on the "Ebba The Movie"

Been a bit quiet on the musical scene (workwise) this week (did a quickie with a Swedish band called Kent no much but still some, they did a small rehearsal week and moving off next week to a bigger place to practice for the upcoming tour, i will do some report on it later on, Thetania was off doing Jonas Gardell again), there is a few bands that plays tonight, but no, not this time, this weekend will be full of social things anyway, some work i need to finish up for some friends, family etc etc so this weekend will go in a sec as usual. Got a tip from a friend, (Cheif Rebel Angel at Metalyze) about a band that suite the last days line up for Tune Of The Day. So why not continue. Thanks Cheif.

Throwdown is an American straight edge hardcore / metal band from Orange County, California, formed in 1997. Throwdown is a kick out stomping metal band with guys like Dave Peters (vocals), Mark Choiniere (guitar), Mark Mitchell (bass) who's deliver some really tightly hardcore, with a influences of bands like Pantera, Machine Head, and Sepultura. Its fast, brutal and passionate aggressive music. Throwdown are also know for their mosh pits :)

Todays tune is "Holy Roller" is taken from Throwdown fifth album "Venom & Tears" - 2007, Enjoy!

Baroness - A Horse Called Golgotha

Baroness is a progressive metal band from Savannah, Georgia, USA whose members grew up together in Lexington, Virginia. Baroness formed in 2003, founded by former members of the punk/metal band Johnny Welfare and the Paychecks.

Singer John Baizley creates the artwork for all Baroness albums, and has done artwork for other bands and labels such as Darkest Hour, The Red Chord, Vitamin X, Sounds of the Underground tour, Kylesa, Daughters, Torche, Pig Destroyer, and the Magrudergrind/Shitstorm split grindcore CD on Robotic Empire. And i must say he is just amazing, love his work.

Baroness will be supporting Mastodon in their US headlining tour starting off in April. Later this month they will travel to Australia to do some gigs with Faith No More, Jane's Addiction, AFI and Meshuggah and the its a few stops in Japan in mars.

About the "Blue Record" as this is a "Sister" record for the 2007 "Red Album", this record is a bit different than the previous, this one got more "Go" even if some tunes have the similar flow, this is a brilliant album as you can hear some many great influences that Baroness really take care of, you got John Baizley’s psychedelic lyrics, great harmonies, brilliant melodies and well done riffs. "Blue Record is an instantly-classic album"

Todays tune "A Horse Called Golgotha" taken from the 'Blue Record' It’s heavy tune, catchy and complex. Enjoy!
