Skinny Puppy - Haze

Skinny Puppy is a Canadian industrial band, formed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1982. The group is widely considered to be the founders of the electro-industrial subgenre.
Initially envisioned as an experimental side project by cEvin Key while he was in the new wave band Images In Vogue, Skinny Puppy evolved into a full-time project with the addition of vocalist Nivek Ogre. Over the course of a dozen studio albums and many live tours, Key and Ogre have been the only constant members.

Skinny Puppys sounds are fusing elements of ambient, noise, new wave, electro and rock music and making innovative use of sampling. Over the course of several tours of North America and Europe in this period, they became known for theatrical, horror-themed live performances and videos, drawing attention to issues such as animal testing and chemical warfare.

Last night Skinny Puppys tour landed in Sweden for a show. It was a really interesting evening, as i have never seen this act before as far as i can recall...hehe you never know...they might have attend at a festival before where i have been. Anyway, this evening was very cool, their lightning show was very cool, they used only projectors all over the stage, nice, not any Par cans or moving lights here. The show was as i could imagine based on horror, alot of blood and very spooky, suit the musical show very good. Nivek Ogre is a great performer.

Todays tune "Haze" is taken from the tenth studio album "Mythmaker" 2007. Enjoy!

Casablanca - Downtown

Casablanca is a Swedish glam rock band that consists of Drummer Josephine Forsman (Sahara Hotnights), Guitarist Erik Stenemo (Melody Club); Singer Anders Ljung (Space Age Baby Jane); Guitarist Ryan Roxie, (Roxie 77, Alice Cooper) and the bass player Mats Rubarth (AIK - Swedish football league).

For almost two years the band has been rehearsing and writing songs in secret. They have been recording with personalities such as Kleerup (who has co-written songs on the album) as well as current producer Chris Laney.

This band is only be labeled 'Classic Rock' in the sense that loud guitars drive the songs, hypnotic and melodic choruses remain in your head, and the steady beat of a powerful rhythm section beckons your body to move, shimmy, and shake.

Todays tune "Downtown" is the first single from Casablanca.

Korn - 'Oildale (Leave Me Alone)

Korn or KoЯn is an American rock band formed in Bakersfield, California, in 1993. The current band line up includes four members: Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, and Ray Luzier.

Korn III: Remember Who You Are is the ninth studio album by American nu metal band Korn, released on July 13, 2010. The band hired Ross Robinson, who produced their first two albums to again act as producer, and drummer Ray Luzier to act as permanent drummer, instead of a live fill-in as he had been previously. The album was recorded as a four-piece band, using no Pro Tools or editing, unlike Korn's more recent albums. Vocalist Jonathan Davis says the album is "simple" in that it is not as multi-layered as Korn's other recent albums, but "it's about the vibe".

Todays tune "Oildale (Leave Me Alone)" is the first single from the new studio album, Korn III – Remember Who You Are. The song title is a reference to Oildale, California, just north of Bakersfield. Though the songs lyrical content has no connection with the town, it is a return to frontman Jonathan Davis's troubled past, with the main chorus "why don't you just leave me alone/my heart's gonna break from the fall/holding onto petty things/feeling all the hate it brings/why don't you just leave me alone!". Enjoy!

Yoso - Yoso

Yoso is a melodic rock/progressive rock supergroup combining former members of Yes (Billy Sherwood—bass/vocals and Tony Kaye—keyboards) and Toto (Bobby Kimball—vocals).

The term “Super-Group” can only describe the formation of two of the most creative and musical legendary bands of the past 30 years into the new band YOSO. Formed out of TOTO’s brilliant vocalist Bobby Kimball and the creative force of YES members, Tony Kaye and Billy Sherwood, it does indeed equal the magic of YES with the voice of TOTO. However, YOSO is much more than a combination of two classic rock groups. YOSO has combined their musical talents to produce an album of new music.

Todays tune is the title track "Yoso" from the debut CD. This is Live In Puebla Mexico Oct 2009.

Rodrigo y Gabriela - Hanuman

Rodrigo y Gabriela (Rodrigo and Gabriela) are a Mexican musical duo who specialize in playing fast, rhythmic acoustic guitars. The duo's members are Rodrigo Sánchez, lead guitar, and Gabriela Quintero, rhythm guitar.

Before they became the most visible flamenco duo of the early 2000s, guitarists Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero bonded over heavy metal while growing up in Mexico City. They combined their talents for a time in the metal group Tierra Acida. Though they recorded some material, Tierra Acida never hit it big, and an album was never released. Instead, Sanchez and Quintero concentrated on learning more guitar styles, teaching lessons during the day and playing bossa novas in hotel bars at night. Bored and frustrated with their chances in the Americas, the two decided to try their luck in Europe instead. They soon bumped into Damien Rice who offred them a spot on his upcoming tour and that open up the doors for them.

Todays tune "Hanuman" is taken from the third studio album "11:11", it was released on 8 September, 2009. Each song on the album is a tribute to an artist that has inspired both Rodrigo and Gabriela and todays tune is dedicated to Carlos Santana
