SONGS THAT MAKE YOU ROCK OUT!!!

Posted: June 19, 2010 in Music

     I have been in a very free spirited, ragin (in a good way) kinda mood lately. So, due to my mood, I have been what the youngins call “rocking out” on my drives to work or wherever else I may be going.  So i figured  I would pass along my Top 5 favorite songs to just go crazy to. Put these on and have fun. Just dont do anything illegal.

1. THE HAUNTED – Little Cage  (Very angry song with an awesome message, one of the best vocalists in metal gets you amped all throughout this track)

2. IN FLAMES – Dead End (Great, soothing female vocals that give you a sense of calm, until the lead singer, who is male, comes through and tears you a new one)

3.  ALICE IN CHAINS  –  A Looking In View (Real angry track by my favorite band. From the opening drum beat, your ready to fight)

4. METALLICA –  Shortest Straw ( Amazing opening druming gets you amped. Fast paced, balls to the wall is perfect to pound your steering wheel as you drive down the highway going 90)

5. PANTERA – Walk (Opening guitar riff prepares you for carnage. Vocals by Anselmo are some of his best. You feel his agitation.)

HAPPY HEAD-BANGING!!

Here are a few covers that I think are just astounding:

1) With or Without You – Espen Lind, Kurt Nilsen, Alejandro Fuentes and Askil Holm

2) Hey Ya – Obadiah Parker

What do you think? Any other suggestions that you guys might have? If so, post them in the comments and we’ll see if we can add them to the list!

Some upcoming concerts

Posted: January 27, 2010 in Music

Hey all! Jonny here to tell you about some concerts coming up that I’m gonna be attending (gonna do some interviews backstage, hang out with the crowd afterwards, etc…).

1) Crud at the Magic Stick, Feb. 13th. These guys are a lot of fun to see live. They interact with the crowd, they interact with each other and there is a definite “Grindhouse” burlesque feel to their show. Check ’em out on YouTube and then I hope you can make it out!

2) Killswitch Engage w/The Devil Wears Prada and Dark Tranquillity at the Royal Oak Music Theater, Feb. 20th. I’m gonna to do an interview with Mike Stanne, the singer of Dark Tranquillity for Bloody-Disgusting. While I’m there, I’m gonna try and interview some of the guys from TDWP and KSE to see how the tour is going, how the new year and the new decade is going for them and what they hope the future holds for them. Keep an eye out for that.

There might be some other concerts in the works. I’ll let you know as I get the information.

Got to put this out there…

So, I was reading my digital edition of Guitar Edge and there was an article about an Australian band called Karnivool. The article grabbed me in their descriptions and comparisons of the band, from Porcupine Tree to Tool. Intrigued, I went to their website to hear some of their music and I was floored. These guys are a mix of the bands mentioned above but also throw in some Muse and Mars Volta but understand that the sound is completely original. These guys are really incredible and I highly recommend them. Count me in for the April 10th show at The Machine Shop in Flint.
