I’m a bit late to the party (blame work, band, & illness!) but the new video for the US metal band In This Moment is out. They have definitely taken a different approach musically, will be interesting to hear the rest of the album. A commenter on the video summed it up better than I could though. "Otep verses, Marilyn Manson chorus".

Anyway, check out the video below. (This isn’t from the official channel – that one wouldn’t embed. Official version is here)

Slayer are launching their own wine – "Reign in Blood" Cabernet Sauvignon.

"The wine has an undisputed attitude and a soft nose of dark berry fruits with oak and spicy nuances. Good mouth feel with hints of fresh fruit and juicy, smooth tannins. Well structured and rounded with subtle notes of oak, showing true Divine Intervention."

I’d love to see someone break out this wine at a posh dinner party…
Oh, these h’orderves are simply marvellous! You must pair them with this vintage 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon.
*hands over Slayer wine*
*cue head banging and ritualistic sacrificing of any pets that happen to be around*

More info is available here.

ArtistDirect have released their list of "Best Rock Singers of the Last Decade".

It seems strange that they say one of their criteria was "pelling proficiency", yet the listed Korn’s Jonathan Davis as number 1 on the list. Their band name isn’t even spelled correctly… (To be fair, they didn’t specifically say that they were listed in any particular order).

Out of the 13, the only female was Flyleafs Lacey Sturm (she’d be on my list), and I’m happy to see Maynard James Keenan was listed too. But Billy Corgan?? Really? I would’ve thought Chris Cornell’s vocal chords would kick Billy’s….

Who’d be on your list?

Meshuggah have released the video for "Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion". According to the youtube page, the title "is an excerpt from a quote by philosopher, physician, organist, and 1952 Nobel Peace Prize winner Albert Schweitzer:

‘Revenge… is like a rolling stone, which, when a man hath forced up a hill, will return upon him with a greater violence, and break those bones whose sinews gave it motion.’".

Anyway, enjoy :)

Ball Park Music, Cub Scouts, Nantes | Review http://antipopstars.com/reviews/ball-park-music-cub-scouts-nantes-review/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=ball-park-music-cub-scouts-nantes-review http://antipopstars.com/reviews/ball-park-music-cub-scouts-nantes-review/#comments Fri, 30 Mar 2012 10:24:11 +0000 SilentDez http://antipopstars.com/?p=207 Coolangatta Hotel – 22nd March, 2012

Pictures from the show available here.

Opening the night with a still slowly filling room, Brisbanites ‘Cub Scouts’ pulled the crowd in with their energetic indie/pop sound and by the end of the set they had several people dancing, and everyone else sitting up and paying attention.

Getting almost as many people singing along as the headliners, Sydney’s ‘Nantes’ warmed up the punters with solid set highlighted by their debut single ‘Fly’. Effortlessly blending their instruments with ‘Dirty Pop’ beats, these new comers took control of the room and adapted the atmosphere to suit their live sound.

Launching off their almost completely sold out 180° Tour at the Cooly Hotel, Brisbane’s own Ball Park Music kicked out an energetic set that left crowd hollering for more. Playing all the hits off their debut album ‘Happiness and Surrounding Suburbs’, alongside a few new tracks, the six-piece played spot on – musically tight and absolutely entertaining. Hits ‘Sad Rude Future Dude’, ‘Literally Baby’, “iFLY’ and ‘It’s nice to be alive’ along with a sneak preview of their ‘Triple J – Like A Version’ cover of ‘Do You Realise’ (by The Flaming Lips), all got the capacity crowd singing along, and dancing their little hearts out.
