A Silver Mt. Zion
« on: 22 Sep 2008, 11:11 »

alright guys, i need help.

i really want to listen some more A Silver Mt. Zion but i don't know where to start. i have Horses In The Sky and absoultely love the fuck out of it, but it's the only album by them that i've heard and alot of people have said that all their albums have pretty different sounds.

so what should i get next?

Yay! A Silver Mt. Zion is basically the best band.

My two favorite albums by a Silver Mt. Zion are their newest, 13 Blues for Thirteen Moons and He Has Left Us Alone..., their first album. Their first is very spare and minimalistic, and completely unlike Horses in the Sky. It's a fine album, but if you started with Horses in the Sky I would go with 13 Blues for Thirteen Moons. Its a much angrier, louder record and kind of has a '70s blues metal tinge to it.

alright, sounds like i'll be trying 13 Blues next.

i'm listening to He Has Left Us Alone right now and i like it, but it isn't quite what i was looking for.

Definitely listen to "This is our Punk Rock." If you like their newest and "Horses..." you'll like that one as well. It's more in line with those albums than their older stuff which is mostly rather different.

I think this name rings a bell but I am coming up with scratch. In my mind, it is a good name for a mix between Wolf Parade and Explosions In The Sky. Is this the kind of music they are? It should be.

No. I don't think Wolf Parade could possibly be compared to this band, or EitS beyond a very superficial level.

EDIT: Upon much consideration, the band your describing would be fantastic. Or awful. I'm not sure which.

okay, so "13 Blues..." is fucking sick and i'm definitely gonna try to find "This Is Our Punk Rock" later.

thanks for the help, everybody!
