My Thoughts

After years of the band doing their own things with side projects Rancid are back with their 8th studio album that it called ‘Honor Is All We Know’. With 19 tracks of fast pace punk action that any old school punk and rancid fans will love this album with racid going back to using awesome basslines for basic to ska to tom armstrong awesome voice that made them the band their are today.

The message of the band intend to show is clear in the first line when tom sings

‘I’ve been gone way too long, I’m back where I belong’

that great line  show your intend with songs like evil my friend, back their I belong and clure control standing out as well. The only nitpick is at time punk cliches about starting fights and drinking beer that good back when their started i think this band could of used the message of being back more in the lyrics.

But that not staying that this isn’t a good album because it is and is worth checking out if you can found the time because if you like old school punk and Rancid.I give this album a 8 out of 10

Released Date:

27th October 2014

Band Member:

  1. Ghost In The Mirror
  2. Getaway
  3. Drying To Survive
  4. Shout At The Moon
  5. Fire
  6. When Are We Waking Up
  7.  She Took Him to the Lake
  8. Heart & Desire
  9. Lonely Hours
  10. The Remedy
  11. Dare You

My Thoughts

After two year away, mallory knox are back with the much awaiting asymmetry album. After hearding the single ‘Ghost In the Mirror’ on kerrang TV i knew I had to listen to this album and  I wasn’t disappointed . As everyone knows the second album is very important when being a new band as it can make or break you, and this album really is going to make them as a band. ‘Ghost In The Mirror’ and ‘ Shout at the moon’ are great anthems track and shows the feel and energy of the album and what the band is all about .

Great sounding guitar and powerful melodies really show in songs like ‘dare you’ and ‘fire’. But the band shows diversity and chilled out side in ‘She Took Him To The Lake’. Mikey Chapman voice performances was amazing and shows range and has one of them voice that work really well with good backing vocal showned in the songs ‘Getaway’, Desire and ‘Lonely Hours

This albums is so good and should be check out and if your a fan of Deaf Havana and Young Guns this is an album for you, you should take a look at songs like Ghost In The Mirror  and ‘She Took Him To The Lake’ because they are song that stand out.

My Thoughts on Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker Trailer

Screen-Shot-2014-10-22-at-2.30.49-PM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So as being a huge angels and airwaves for years now i was always going to check out this trailer for the short animator film called ‘Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker’ because of it being the created by Tom DeLonge. But wow the film looks amazing and has a mixed between old Pokemon with CG and the dark tone of the pixel film ‘coraline’.

I like that the film idea feels so original that is that hard to do these days but anyway the Film is about:

Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker follows Poet, a Lucid Dreamer, with the rare ability to be aware of his dreams while they’re happening. As Poet journeys deeper into his vivid dream life, he meets his Dream Walker, a guardian angel of dreams, who protects him from the torment of a vicious Night Terror monster.  But when his nightmares break through into his waking life, Poet must face his demons to fulfill his destiny’. (http://www.mania.com. 2014)

After watching this trailer i feel gutted that i wouldn’t be about to watch this film in the cinema as it being released in the USA and not in the UK, but at least i get the ‘The Dream Walker’ album new week that should more then make up for it after getting a teaser of another song in the trailer as well and it sound really good and works with the trailer.

But will  be back with my thoughts on the avengers age of ultron trailer and the new angels and airwaves song ‘Wolfpack, but until then have a great weekend

Single review: Take That – These Days

Josh Gill's Blog

Single review: Take That - These DaysA modern, upbeat song, Take That’s new single These Days is the funky, disco tinged lead track from their upcoming album III. The first song the band have released as a trio (following the departures of both Robbie Williams and Jason Orange), These Days is a breath of fresh air, adding another interesting twist to Take That’s lengthy back catalogue.

My Thoughts on Angels and Airwaves new song called paralysed

 

AVA-Paralyzed-Single-Review-1024x575

 

 

 

 

 

 

After months with video tenser on instagram we finally get a new song from angels and airwaves from their new album that we now know is called ‘the dream walker’ and the song called ‘paralyzed’.

So the song started with a live band session of the song that is something different. It wasn’t what I was expanding but it a nice change, I thought it was to long for my liking.

Then the main riff kicks in my first thought were it has an I empire feel to it but with the guitar having more lead then synths that I’ve  missed form Angels and airwaves music. The verse sound good but tom’s voice feel losted with the other instrument, but that could be with the verison that I have heard.

Also the chours riff sounds a lot like ‘ghost on the dancefloor’ by blink 182 but slower that sums up tom riffs these days this could be because of him trying to balance blink 182 and angels and airwaves projects.

But it a solid song overall and it set up the sound and feel that the band is going for with their up and coming album. One or two small things put the song down in my opinion, that hope we get one more song before the album is released on october 31st 2014

Here a Link to the song;
