Secret Chiefs 3  2007 7" records

From Wikipedia:

Quote
Secret Chiefs 3, also known as SC3, is a group of musicians led by composer and producer Trey Spruance, former guitarist of Mr. Bungle and Faith No More. Their studio recordings and tours have featured different line-ups, as the group performs a wide range of musical styles including surf rock, Persian, Arabic, Indian, death metal, film music, electronic music, and various others.

Trey is an extremely gifted composer and musician with an intense and voracious interest in many styles of music making each of his albums something of a stylistic surprise, and usually a good one.  The SC3's music has been getting consistently more layred and complex, while at the same time their output has dwindled.  In 2007 they released four limited edition 7"s of new music under the names "Ur", "Electromagnetic Azoth" and "Ishraqiyun", three of a total of 7 sub-bands under the umbrella of the Secret Chiefs.  It's all good stuff, and a shame it was released in a way that limits it's exposure, but someone ripped it to mp3, and so I pass it on to you.

Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra - Take Off!
Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/download.php?yze2m2mdmdn

Quote
Led by 25-year-old German composer Daniel Glatzel, the Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra is a 20-piece modern classical ensemble with its hands in film scores, jazz, and much more.  For reference, Glatzel cites videogames and elevator music as influences alongside Béla Bartók and Arnold Schoenberg.

Take Off! is a beautiful and dazzling creation, romping through playful orchestrations, big-band swing, foreboding soundtrack cues, sad string arrangements, and more.  Without prior knowledge, one might mistake it to be the work of someone forty years Glatzel’s senior.

Music fans may recognize the ensemble’s work with The Notwist for its live album and newest effort, The Devil, You & Me. Shortly enough, however, the industry should take notice of Glatzel and his masterful creations.

from: Alarmpress

Seriously though this album is awesome and comes highly recommended

I know right! I was just on a downloading spree, grabbing everything i could off some blog just to try it out... I've since deleted most of them, but this just... is so damn listenable!

I think its like Ahab. they use the voice as an instrument, not so much for words. and when its mixed so the voice isnt in front of everything. It works!

Haha, I've done that a few times. Recently, I've been kind of losing interest in metal, so the not-as-good stuff has been getting deleted left and right. If you want, I'll upload some of the more obscure stuff so you can have a crack at it.

I wouldn't quite make the comparison to Ahab, but I think they sound like Swallow the Sun if they could stay out of the boring quagmire that they occasionally get stuck in.

Ok, I've got one that I'm really surprised isn't in here yet.

From 1998, the kind of odd --and oddly addictive-- Placebo and their album Without You I'm Nothing.  I'm not even entirely sure how I would describe this album, so I'm going to let a reviewer from Amazon do it.

Quote
This U.K. three-piece's self-titled debut often got compared to Smashing Pumpkins and Rush--Smashing Pumpkins for its unashamed mid-'70s prog-rock allusions and Rush because of singer Brian Molko's unusually high-pitched, almost androgynous voice. In reality, Placebo were far more salacious, downright dirty, and culturally confusing than either. (The band is a mix of American, Swedish, and English, with some Lebanese and Luxembourgian thrown in.) For their second album, Placebo have looked to the late '70s for inspiration, to the sound of early New Order and the Banshees--with a dash of the '90s thrown in: "Brick Shithouse," for example, starts like the most balls-out Prodigy song. If their debut was the sound of a no-holds-barred sexual drug frenzy lasting way into the next day, then Without You I'm Nothing is the resultant rumpled, libidinous comedown. As such, it's much classier, cerebral and great to listen to when hung-over. "I'm unclean / A libertine / And every time you vent your spleen / I seem to lose my power of speech," Molko breathes on the awesomely overcharged title track. In a year when Marilyn Manson and Bauhaus continue to revitalize the goth movement across America, Placebo's moment may well have arrived.

In two pieces because it's big, Placebo Without You I'm Nothing

yeah, I'm still a metal-head/ gothy stuff person at heart. but the whole genre of heavy is kinda stagnant right now... luckily I found this thread just in time... and got a chance to hear things i never knew existed...

now some of those things are just arrogant,mediocre prattling for white American college kids with upper middle class parents...

but who says that is always a bad thing!?

and still even more of those things are just retina burstingly awesome!

...

And I would be super-stoked to check out anything you wanna upload!

Alright. Now normally, I don't care about modern video game music. The following are a couple of exceptions:


Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?ldmntt0fnyw
     Amazingly rich and textured music, performed by a real string quartet. The music, taking into account the steam-punk-ish bent of the game, has strong overtones of late 19th century Romanticism. The songs all have a peculiar sense of motion to them, both a driving, nearly mechanical harshness, and the soft, elastic ululations that a good string quartet excels at producing. This is probably my favorite game soundtrack.
     In an interesting side-note, this was never made available for purchase: Sierra underwent an ownership change right around this time, and the game was never amazingly popular. For quite some time, people wanting to hear this soundtrack outside of the game context were restricted to grabbing some WAVs off the game disk, which were fairly low quality, as the game came on two CDs. But, rather recently, someone in Europe uncovered a disk of higher quality recordings, handed out for a promotion. This eventually made its way into the hands of an Arcanum fan-group that occasionally releases an unofficial patch. I grabbed the high quality WAVs, converted them to VBR MP3, and here we are.



Sim City 3000

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?zomymjrqzzf
     A more popular game, with an entirely different kind of soundtrack. Totally eclectic, the genres range from jazz to electronic to classical to minimalist atmospheric to some indescribable admixture of the above. Once again, all by live musicians, except in the more heavily electronic parts. Skillfully written and performed, this deserves to be appreciated as an independent album. It's actually made available for download on the SimCity website, but I've made it available here for your convenience.

EDIT:Uploads appear to be broken. Fixing now.

Hi guys!  I turned 22 this past Saturday, and I celebrated with a dance party that featured some pretty amazing music, courtesy of a few friends of mine who decided to show up and play DJ sets.  One set in particular, by my friend DJ Kontakt, completely blew the roof off of my skull and really made my birthday a really fucking awesome time.

Turns out he recorded it and sent me a link for download!

It's on Megaupload because it's a single 192MB file, an hour and 48 minutes long.  It was one of the best dance experiences of my life.

Beck- One Foot in the Grave- 2009 reissue



You lot most likely know this album- becks 1994 super-loose lo-fi folkie excursion with K records.  It was one of my favorite albums back in high school (yeah, I'm that old) and the first proof that there was more to Beck than "Loser."  There was a seven inch with three extra songs at the time, and an interview with Calvin Johnson implied that enough songs were still leftover to make another record.  Last month a good number of those songs finally surfaced on this remastered reissue.  The remastering is basically unnoticeable on a disc like this, but the stash of new "old" Beck tunes is the real attraction.

John Zorn:  Alhambra Love Songs



Quote
Alhambra Love Songs is Zorn’s touching and lyrical ode to the San Francisco/Bay Area and the wonderful artists who have made it their home. Including tributes to artists as diverse as Vince Guaraldi, Clint Eastwood, David Lynch, Mike Patton and Harry Smith, the music is some of the most beautiful and soothing Zorn has ever written.

The above may well be true, and that makes it somewhat distinct in his catalog.  Those who know him know that he puts out about a dozen albums a year and while he often composes beautiful and delicate film scores, he is obviously not afraid of dissonance and disconcerting abstraction.  There's just none of that here.  Here's a piano trio playing a set of diverse songs, but with few or no bumps in the road.  A pleasure to have on in the background, as well as good for a more attentive listen on the headphones.  There's a good review here at allmusic: http://www.allmusicguide.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:h9fwxzq0ldhe

I haven't posted here in a while, so I thought I'd drop by and share some nice music that I personally have been enjoying immensely. It is, for the most part mostly metal, but it is really good metal. These are not your average metal bands, and have other various influences that really do make them sound fresh and unique. This is very hard to do when the genre is mostly saturated with aural manure these days, and which is why I have been enjoying listening to them so much. So keep an open mind and give these musics a chance.  :-)

Animals as Leaders - Animals as Leaders



Born from the ashes of that guy from Reflux comes probably my favorite album of 2009 (so far, at least). Tosin Abasi (even his name is awesome) is one of the most incredible contemporary guitarists I have ever heard. Although he is hailed as virtuoso, he manages to make his playing sound so fresh and unique. On this album, you can hear influences from several different genres of music, including jazz (fusion), classical, ambient/shoegaze, and of course metal. There are chord and time signatures aplenty, so receptive ears are recomended when listening to this album. Tosin's songwriting ability is probably his strongest skill, and it is evident in his music. His playing is so skillful, dynamic, and full of feeling that anyone who remotely enjoys guitar-centric music will have very happy ears if they listen to this album.

Exivious - Exivious



Quote
Fusionmetal - A relatively new and unexplored genre in the world of metal. Exivious marks a first to truly marry jazzfusion with metal into a coherent new style. Featuring members of legendary US prog band CYNIC and Dutch metallers TEXTURES, Exivious isn't an over the top math metal band and certainly isn't a loungy jazz combo either. But expect everything in between!

With a jazzfusion backbone Exivious uses freaky metal riffs to decorate their organic eruption of free improvisations and complex rhythms. Guitarist Tymon comments: "We finally managed to transform a vision I had a long time ago into 9 intense and fiery songs. There's an immense amount of information in there that will definitely take more than one spin in your CD player to comprehend!"

hold yo' tongue!!! devin motherfucking townsend is releasing FOUR ALBUMS THIS YEAR.  the first installment "Ki" is a laid back sort of intro to the project, but the third album has been described by the man himself as "the heaviest thing i've ever done."  THIS IS THE DUDE FROM STRAPPING YOUNG FUCKING LAD.  i fully expect to be ripped apart by heaviness when this album comes out - cannot fucking wait!

The genre of heavy is definitely not stagnant. What you are experiencing is the overwhelmingly bad ratio between excellent bands and crap ones. You have to search a lot harder for the good stuff, which is why the heavy music scene appears stagnant. In reality the current situation is a result of the Heavy Music Aural Manure Oversaturation Contingency, or HMAMOC. Luckily for you, I have provided a couple of bands that have managed to escape the grasp of the HMAMOC, and whose music I have conveniently placed in my post above.

Your welcome.

Sincerely,

If the idea that there are more bad heavy bands than good ones makes you think heavy music is stagnant you're not really picking up on patterns of, well, every conceivable form of art. The good stuff appeals in part because it distinguishes itself from the shite! It's pretty simple, really.

oh man, you hit it on the head! you and De_El both! I know the goods stuff is out there, largely because I am constantly digging for it.

but its not just the severe shit to awesome ratio. its also the fact that what gets the money(translation: radio play) is shit like hollywood undead, framing hanley. saving able
 I mean GOD is this what popular heavy has become!

ITS NOT EVEN HEAVY! Its like all those morons that decided anything "Nu" was atrociously uncool. forgot why they thought it was... and brought back only the shitty elements of it. :x

I mean yeah, Limp Bizket wasn't a brilliant band. but at least there was actual instruments being played...(and I think DJ lethal and Wes Borland are fucking awesome.)

ARGH.

PLEASE! post all the awesome metal/heavy stuff you have. because my arms are getting real tired of holding this shovel

I have The New Black by SYL, its technically fantastic, but i still rarely get around to listening. I dont know why that is...

that album's got a few of their best songs ever ("almost again," "wrong side," "the new black," a coupla others whose names escape me), but some VERY average filler too.  pick up "City" and "Alien" and be blown away.  "SYL" is also a lot better an album than it gets credit for - "Aftermath" might even be their best song.  "Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing" is probably your last port of call, if you REALLY like the other stuff.  it's not bad, but nothing compared to what came after.

I actually just walked across a city, at night, listening to "City."  The "Oooowhooah-oooowhoah"s at the end of "Spirituality" are so fucking epic.

I should really balance this fanboyish rambling with some uploads, but I'm about to hit the sack.  I'll probably up a coupla SYL albums in the next few days though.

hey, i'm  long time lurker, first time poster, and i thought someone would want more placebo.
Here's their newest album. Personally, i don't think it's as good as without you i'm nothing and black market music but it's worth a listen, for old times sake if nothing else.

Strapping Young Lad Megapost...

ALL HAIL THE NEW FUCKING FLESH!!!


"City"  (1997)



Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?igiwx1tomzq
The first album as a full band ("Heavy As a Really Heavy Thing" was mostly Devin and a coupla hired hands).  Ridiculous industrial-thrash with a nice melodic streak, MASSIVE vocal harmonies, and Devin's trademark uber-layered production.  I'd genuinely put this up there with with metal's classics.



"S.Y.L."  (2003)



Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?wyojuvnggll
The long-awaited follow-up to "City," and a slightly more straight forward death metal-orientated release.  Still got some awesome melodies (fucking "Aftermath," man!!!), and a slightly rawer production.  Apparently it was written in response to 9/11, hence the more political slant on the lyrics.



"Alien"  (2005)



Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?mnmzoynaejr
So Devin decides to stop taking his bipolar medicine for the whole duration of this album's writing and recording process, and document the results.  The album sounds suitably dark and, frankly, fucking psychopathic.  Features the band's catchiest song "Love?" and also a greater complexity of song structures/riffs/rhythms.  The head-fuck production style has been taken even further here, with a few discernible bass-drops, and white-noise intensity.


ENJOY!!!

This is the first time I post something, and I think this is a good starter.
I think the album in it's entirety is really great.
Can't really define the music, but at some moments you're really blown away.

Hope you enjoy it too.

From last.fm :
A Belgian rockband, consisting of members Younes Faltakh, Jonas Govaerts, Georgios Tsakiridis and Jimmy Wouters. They won Humo’s Rock Rally in 2006, the most important Belgian rock contest, which has already brought forth bands like dEUS, Das Pop, Goose, Admiral Freebee, Mint, and many others.

Their self titled debut album was released in March 2009, and was produced by Das Pop. It’s being described (in Humo) as ‘hard, melodic, danceable and devilish’.

Charles Bronson-Youth Attack

Quote
Charles Bronson was a hardcore/thrash band from Dekalb, Illinois. Noted for their use of film/TV samples as postmodern metacommentary within the structure of their music. (The eponymous self-referencing sample comes from Gary Oldman’s character in True Romance.) They played fast and heavy thrash and hardcore along with contemporaries such as MK-Ultra and Social Coma. Their two-disc discography, entitled Complete Discocrappy, was released on Youth Attack Recordings/625 Thrashcore in 2000. Members went on to be in bands like Holy Molar, Das Oath, and Ruination.

Youth Attack! is their first and only EP. Easily their best release, it's got everything that made them famous - ultra fast hardcore with a screechy singer, absurd prank calls at Tower Records and of course Charles Bronson samples. It still amazes me how they manage to smuggle in cool little melody fragments even into their wildest songs. Also, the song structures is a bit more complex than on their previous releases. A classic. [9].

16-Bridges to burn

Quote
The band is based in Los Angeles, California, USA. They were formed in 1991, something that was quite a surprise for me, and have numerous releases under their belt (albums, split CD’s, EP’s etc). Their fifth full-length album and first through Relapse is surely something I didn’t expect. You know, something like a pleasant surprise...

DO you want a band that will be groovy in a totally Stoner way, but it will also have the filth of Sludge? Do you want something that will be as close to GOATSNAKE and CROWBAR as it will be to BONGZILLA and WEEDEATER? 16 is the answer, a name simple and straightforward just like this band’s music. "Bridges To Burn" is a bluesy Metal punch in your face with heavy as fuck riffing that is destined to play louder than hell! Thumbs up for the production, too, since I don’t know who is responsible for this sound, but the guy managed to create something you could call polished dirt. Dirty enough to maintain the feeling, yet clear enough to have a pleasant and solid sound.

As someone said in his blog about this album, "Hello Mr. 2009! Check out this shit!" (just imagine his face while he was writing this). I guess that 2009 will be a bit more successful for 16, at least more successful than these guys expected, since such an album gives a nice push to the band. Way to go mates!

The newest Black Lips.
Really enjoyable stuff from the one and only "flower punk"-band.
I can say this is the best they've made.

The Black Lips - 200 Million Thousand



Quote
It's ironic when the Black Lips sing that they're "trapped in a basement" here. Ten years ago, this Atlanta band's purposefully sloppy "flower punk" would have been unjustly confined to basement shows; now it could fit in a Zach Braff film. The Lips' psychedelic and garage heroes loom large: "Big Black Baby Jesus of Today" sounds distractingly like the 13th Floor Elevators, and "Drugs" is all about the New York Dolls. This smart if self-conscious album makes it clear who the Lips would like to be, but it's hard to tell who they really are.

Deer Tick - Born on Flag Day (2009)



Code: [Select]
http://www.med!afire.com/?wzudmomnyjh
Quote
Deer Tick's highly anticipated second full-length, and follow-up to the band's acclaimed debut War Elephant (reissued in 2008 by Partisan Records)! This release follows two years of extensive touring in sold-out clubs across around the world. Unlike War Elephant, the album features the three new members of Deer Tick that principal songwriter John J. McCauley III recruited to form the current incarnation, and reflects a natural evolution from a singular vision of one songwriter to something greater.

i really like that black lips album too, they're just such a good band.  if everyone digs that album, you should also get down on "let it bloom", which is my favorite album from them.

if you're wondering why i'm not uploading it for you, please refer to my previous post about how i'm waiting for a fix for the latest itoooonz update.  it's pissing me off, i still can't play, or zip up any of my archive.  it will only let me select it to add or remove off an ipod.  fml. bla bla bla.  i'm sure you can google it down quick.

I've grabbed a gang of sh*t off this thread,

so allow me to slowly repay you folks one album at a time =)

This is electronic pop music, released in the middle of last month in the US.

...Miike Snow. Up to this point they’ve remained pretty mysterious, proving nearly impossible to find any information about, photographic or otherwise. Man? DJ? Robot? Miike Snow is a band. Swedish duo Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg are childhood friends who spent time playing in bands and working on various projects in studios throughout Gothenburg. After separate moves to Stockholm they reunited in 2000 when their paths crossed with American Andrew Wyatt to write a pop album for a someone else. The release was small, there was little distribution and an alleged large sum of money was lost in the process The three stayed in touch and a friendship was formed and in 2007 Miike Snow was born.

Karlsson and Winnberg’s backgrounds in the DJ scene and punk bands alongside experiments in progressive electro and new rave lead to a series of writing / producing stints with Madonna, Kylie Minogue and Britney Spears – culminating in their Grammy win for Best Dance Recording with her song “Toxic”. Wyatt has been a member in Black Beetle (with Joan Wasser) and The A.M. (with Michael Tighe). He had an album come out this year with the band Fires of Rome as well writing and producing the new Daniel Merriweather album with Mark Ronson. Miike Snow’s self titled debut is a full band collaboration, showcasing their deft mastery of the studio while acknowledging each members unique talent for songwriting, production, arrangement and performance.

Finally ready to step out of the studio, but not the shadows, Miike Snow is set to be released this summer. Recorded in Stockholm in the 400 year old home used to house King Gustaf III’s mistress, Miike Snow bristles with confidence. It’s intelligent pop music that has the ability to cradle taste making purists and reach anthemic heights. Showcasing melodic songs built for the anything goes environment of the club, Miike Snow will make anonymity an impossibility.
