Evanescence

Miche did the spontaneous thing this week. After hearing "Bring me to Life" on the radio once she bought the Evanescence CD. Cool stuff. Very nice sound. Kind of All about Eve meets Skin from Skunk Anansie on vocals with a nice rocky Linkin Park kinda guitar thing going on.

Got the new Metallica St Anger CD/DVD off play.com yesterday. Cool ;)

We have that on order, I think.

St Anger comes with a serial that you register on the Met website, and it allows you to download some mp3s :)

Been listening to Evanescence since I got back from my wander along the canal. I really like the guitar stuff, it's much more than the 'linkin park thing' that I noticed on the single. Definitely some Nine Inch Nails and other good stuff in there too...

And Tourniquet, seems to be a Metalica, Iron Maiden crossover thing... ;)

St Anger arrived yesterday. I must admit that I prefer the more melodic stuff to the 'old style' thrash metal.

It's the influence of the new bassist, even though he's not credited as writing any of the songs. And they got panned on one of their previous albums for becoming too pretentious ;)

I know Metallica got slated by a lot of the "core" fans for the S&M (Symphony and Metallica) album. I can imagine that a lot of metal fans didn't think much of their band playing with the San Franciso SO, but personally I loved it - real film music stuff (no doubt due to the influence of Michael Kamen who collaborated with Metallica on the project and also conducted the whole thing). I get the feeling the new album is very much a "back to the roots" approach.

I thought S&M was a good album ;) It kinda proved that metal is very close to classical in its complexity. Even one of my friends, who is an orchestral violinist, had to agree, especially when he saw the score sheet...

I've only managed 3 tracks off St. Anger so far....

Hmm, the St Anger stuff sounds better after this amount of wine, with it playing loudly in one room and me in another. YMMV.

Your Mileage May Vary...
