Rock

An inclusive discussion of all genres and sub-genres of rock music; classic, psychedelic, metal, punk, alt, hard, and all things in between.

In memory of Jeff Hanneman, RIP to a pioneering icon of metal.

The Smashing Pumpkins: Mellon Collie, "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" (1995).


Hole: Live Through This, "Violet" (1994).

The lyrics recount Courtney Love's experience dating Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins. Courtney's husband, Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, performed background vocals, can you hear him?


Nirvana: In Utero, "Francis Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle" (1993).

RIP Kurt; April 5, 1994 (four days following the release of Live Through This).


Them Crooked Vultures: Single, "New Fang" (2009).

A supergroup colab, consisting of John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Dave Grohl (Nirvana and Foo Fighters), and Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, The Desert Sessions, Kyuss, Screaming Trees). Dave and Josh have each belonged to multiple of the most significant bands of the nineties, so I'm definitely attracted to this colab.

My favourite Pantera song

I'd go for sure, but it would have to be a last minute decision. Not too sure how the work schedule will be around then.
Rancid/Transplants tour is coming through. Thats the show I'm most looking forward too this summer.

I saw AIC in Seattle a few years ago and it was fucking epic but I've never seen a concert at Deer Lake park so I am a little on the fence.

I haven't seen a concert at Deer Lake park, but I've seen other outside concerts. In my experience, at outside concerts great acoustics are sacrificed for an interesting atmosphere. To me, Alice in Chains wouldn't benefit from that atmosphere and would suffer considerably from the poor acoustics. I'm passing on this show. Tragically Hip, Sublime, Red Hot Chilli Peppers are the style of band I would want to see at an outside venue.

I'll be at Alice In Chains. Never seen them live before so I figured this was my chance.

As for outdoor vs. indoor, I much prefer indoor for acoustics. I've seen many shows at Thunderbird stadium in the 90's(Edgefect, Metalica, The Hip) and while there is a natural slope in the back for sounds to bounce off of it was still pretty meh. I absolutely love the Commedore and would see bands I didn't even like just because of the venue.

What's the deal with this Folk Rock revival going on right now with Mumford & Sons & The Lumineers? I barely listen to the radio now but was surprised to hear the genre on top 10 radio, seemingly out of nowhere. Perhaps Arcade Fire winning a Grammy paved the way?

Also check out this documentary directed by Dave Grohl:


And for any podcast listeners, some great interviews with rock stars:

Josh Homme on Jay Mohr Podcast: http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect....sic-64kbps.mp3

Dave Grohl on Maron: http://traffic.libsyn.com/wtfpod/WTF...DAVE_GROHL.mp3

I LOVE female vocalists, and Serena Ryder has a very 90's sound, so I'm into this girl's music. It's pretty soft, so you Slayer and Alice in Chain fans might not dig it as much. Serena's a Canadian girl too, always feels good to support home grown talent.

Serena Ryder, "Stompa."


Serena Ryder and the Beauties, "No Air."


Serena Ryder, "What I wouldn't do."


I've seen Stone Temple Pilots twice in concert; once Scott Weiland was clean-ish, once he was on heroin. Weiland is an amazing talent, vocally extraordinary and a gifted showman. Clean-ish, he lead STP in putting on one of the best shows I've ever seen. High, I nearly left, his addiction was almost tangible. I hear STP is now performing without Scott again, and I somewhat doubt they'll reform once more, in fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he OD'd soon.

Stone Temple Pilots - Core, "Sex Type Thing" (1992).

Progressive rock and power metal are my personal favourite genres. I love them because they don't follow expectations.

When it comes to prog rock no one can beat Liquid Tension Experiment.




I also like Dream Theater:


This is Circus Maximus, a prog metal band from Norway. Biosfear is one of my top 5 metal songs. I love how unorthodox the time signatures are.


DRAGONFORCE




Some more power metal, Rhapsody of Fire (Italy). It makes me think of a huge medieval army, noblemen, knights and shit.



Luca Turilli is a member of Rhapsody of Fire. Two of my favourite singles of his are Demonheart and Black Realms Majesty.

My favourites from the classic rock era:
- Iron Maiden (anything by them)
- Whitesnake
- Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath
- Deep Purple
- Rainbow (especially stuff by Ronnie James Dio)

As far as the modern stuff is concerned, I'm all over the place:
- Metallica
- Slipknot/Stone Sour
- Amon Amarth
- Rammstein (lol)
- Smashing Pumpkins
- Slayer
- Therion
- Tyr

These are just some bands I listen to on regular bases. I have a lot more to list though...

And for slightly more modern stuff:



NIGHTFUCKINGWISH. Original lineup with Tarja just killed. And this is one of the best AMVs I've ever seen (audio on this one is crappy but it's the only copy I could find):


Of course, everyone knows this version of a one-hit-wonder classic from the car commercials...


And how about TWO of the best female rock vocals in one band?

My god, it's about time one of these threads got started.

Maybe I'm biased as a singer, but what impresses me the most about rock is the vocals. You need to have equal parts of grit and control, which is one of the hardest things to do properly without damaging your vocal chords.

Yeah, yeah, guitar shredders. But with the amount of Asian kids on youtube that can give the biggest names a good run for their money at guitar shredding, it's not as rare as a solid vocalist.

One of my favourite rock singers is Adam Gontier formerly of Three Days Grace. Too bad he quit the band. Now Matt Walst from My Darkest Days is filling in for Adam, but Matt sounds too kiddy punkrock. I think the band will be done in a few months.

One of my favourite performances when Adam was still in the band.

M Shadows from Avenged Sevenfold is damn good too.

Tyr is great!

Also, my compliments on the selection of a John Bauer illustration of Tyr and Fenrir as an avatar. I would never have expected to see that on RS.

Corey from Slipknot/Stone Sour is damn good too, though in recent performances it sounds like his vocal chords are starting to give out

I love Scandinavian/Norse mythology and John Bauer's depictions of Tyr and Fenrir is probably my favourite!

I would never have expected to find someone on RS who knows of/listens to Tyr, haha!

I thought Thrice was one of the coolest bands during the whole Warped Tour blow-up era.

It's a shame they didn't get as much recognition as the poppier bands like My Chemical Romance, The Used, Yellowcard, All American Rejects, Sugarcult, etc.

The lead guitar lines Teppei Teranishi writes always fits their songs perfectly.

This song makes me want to fight dragons.

Tyr is pretty obscure, under appreciated.

I discovered them a couple years ago through a bit of luck.

The anthropology (I'm looking at you, Dino) and history nerds would likely enjoy "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey." Amazing documentary on the history of metal, produced by Sam Dunn, who has a Ph.D in the subject, and includes interviews with Ronnie James Dio, Dee Snider, Tom Morello, Tony Iommi, Lemmy, Kerry King, so many epic stars with amazingly cool insights. It might be tough to track down, I'm not sure, trust me though, it's worth the effort.

Also one of the greatest (opera-trained!) rock vocalists of his day... sadly, his voice just hasn't been the same the last decade or so. But I'll always have the memories this concert - one of the best EVER.

Three Days Grace - Never To Late - Live HD - YouTube

M Shadows from Avenged Sevenfold is damn good too.
Avenged Sevenfold - Afterlife [Live] - YouTube

I'm glad TDG and A7X were mentioned in this thread. Listened to both of these bands religiously throughout highschool and they both remain one of my favorites to this day (at least the original lineup albums from both bands). TDG and One-X were definitely my favourite albums from TDG. Their most recent album just didn't do it for me for some reason. And I agree with the video you posted. Their Live at the Palace show was just plain awesome. Adam is a hell of a singer. Was pretty bummed when he quit the band.

A7X on the other hand, I like their recent stuff more than their old. I know a lot of people prefer their older, heavier, screamo material, but I actually liked City of Evil and A7X more than Sounding the Seventh Trumpet and Waking the Fallen.

These are a couple of my favourite live performances from both of these bands:

Such a twisted song, but so good
