★ 現場相集 Gallery
回顧全文 Review

P.S. 感謝 Dragonforce 分享我們的香港站演唱會回顧。希望在不久將來能再次看到他們在港演出吧!

「…… 樂隊熱情迎接香港觀眾,逐一回應尖叫他們名字樂迷,邀請觀眾一起唱,展示各種器樂技術訣竅 —— 高拋鼓掍、返轉結他、舌頭、plucking 和 hammering 各種彈撥技巧、crowd-surfing 等等 —— 總之你想看到的,他們都會把你的願望實現。然而,沒有什麼能與 Herman 的廣東話溫馨問候更有趣,他更提及其他成員鐘愛亞洲文化 (和女孩子)!…… Marc 壓腿高舉咪高峰,金色長髮隨風飄揚,像牧師帶領觀眾一起和唱。所有人舉高自己的拳頭叫喊,隨著快速結他和爆破鼓聲的讚歌而跳動 ……」

“…The band shows incredible warm welcoming to the Hong Kong audience. Warm smiles, responding to individual fan who is screaming their name out, inviting the crowd to sing along, showcasing variety of technical trick – throwing drumsticks, flipping guitar, tongue-picking, plucking, hammering, crowd-surfing, etc – you can simply see any tricks you can think of. However, nothing can compare to Herman Li’s funny, cordial greeting in Cantonese, including how his bandmates love Asian culture! …Hudson was leading the crowd to sing along with his thigh stretched and long blonde hair flying in the air, everyone in the crowd raise their fist, scream along and move their bodies like worshiping along with the priest, with speedy guitar and blasting drum beat as background hymn…”

[NEWS] Metallica Beer!

Metallica 將與 Budweiser合作推出限量版啤酒,可是只會在加拿大發售。(大家有否覺得那個紅罐像汽水多於啤酒呢?)

The thrash metallers have tied up a deal with Budweiser to offer a limited-edition branded beer, though available in Canada only.

[NEWS] Bring Me The Horizon‘s Crazy Worldwide Promotion!

每個人都在談論 Bring Me The Horizon 上週出版的新專輯 That’s The Spirit。有樂迷上載了一張於倫敦拍攝、把封套雨傘圖案投射在牆上的照片。雖然這可能不是樂隊想出來的意念,但那肯定把音樂推廣活動提升至新水平。

Everyone’s talking about Bring Me The Horizon’s new album That’s The Spirit out last week. A fan uploaded a photo with the umbrella artwork projected on a wall in London. Though it might no be the band’s idea, it certainly takes music promotion campaign to the next level.

[NEWS] Slayer = Satanic?

相信大家都已觀看 Slayer 前天發布 Repentless 新視頻,當中更邀得年主演 Machete 的 Danny Trejo 客串。(沒錯,就是那個在電影扮演黑幫老大的!) 今天極端基督專頁 The Vigilant Christian 製作了一個片段,指出 Repentless「是純粹的魔鬼,邪惡且污穢。」

ICYMI, Slayer finally released their new video Repentless. The blood-soaked new video from Slayer starring Machete actor Danny Trejo has been unveiled. Regarding the “Repentless” clip, The Vigilant Christian said: “This is pure Satanic, evil filth. There is no other way to put it.”

[NEWS] Funeral For A Friend Breaks Up!

Funeral for a Friend 宣布解散,結束15年的音樂生涯。樂團曾出版七張專輯,並決定在其告別巡演把他們最引以為傲的兩張專輯 — Casually Dressed & Deep in Conversation 和 Hours 重新演譯。以下是 FFAF 的告別訊息全文:

Funeral for a Friend have announced that they are breaking up after 15 years and seven albums. The band will have a farewell tour playing the two albums they’re most proud of, ‘Casually Dressed & Deep in Conversation’ and ‘Hours’.

Here’s their full statement:

“Dear friends, fans and anyone who has ever given a shit about us and our band over the past fifteen years.

It’s never easy putting into words the feeling you have for something that in many ways is intangible. We’ve written this over and over and sometimes it feel like we’re missing something. But this needs to be written regardless so here goes.

Today we announce the end of Funeral for a Friend. Yes, the end. We’ve had an amazing ride, met an insane amount of people, toured countries we’d never even dreamed we’d get to see and made music together that in some crazy way has been responsible for taking us on that ride for well over a decade.

When we started this band the only hope and aspirations we had was to write music that we loved, play some shows and maybe make a record…we’ve surpassed that in so many ways, achieving three gold records along the way. It’s grown to be a huge part of our lives but like the saying goes all good things must end and we’ve come to the end of the line. We’ve had many curveballs thrown at us over the last fifteen years, some we’ve managed to avoid and others that quite nearly derailed us but we’ve always said to each other that when it’s time for this to end then we end it on our own terms, no one else’s. So there we go, one chapter closes and another opens and life goes on…”

[NEWS] Every Hour Kills – Almost Human

美國 melodic metal 樂隊 Every Hour Kills 於9月18日即將推出首張同名EP,並同時發布音樂錄影 Almost Human。主將 Sacha Laskow 表示:「這首歌是關於上癮、惡習和惡魔。這些劣根性都以某種形式存在於每個人心內。有時,當面對這些考驗,你會感到孤立無援,像是陌生人、甚至有非人之感。」

Melodic Metal band Every Hour Kills has released their “Almost Human” music video from their upcoming self-titled EP which comes out on September 18th. “The song is about addictions, vices and demons. Everybody has them in some form. Sometimes when you deal with these trials you feel isolated and alone, like an alien among your own kind. Like you’re not quite human…” Sacha Laskow explained.

[NEW NOISE] Attention! The Wonder Years

早前我們向大家介紹了 The Wonder Years 的音樂。他們最近推出的新專輯 No Closer To Heaven 在美國熱門專輯榜取得第九位的佳績,亦是該樂隊的職業生涯中反應最好的作品。樂團最擅於以深層次、述說人生遭遇的歌詞配合流行朋克曲調。NCTO 亦取得另類音樂專輯榜和黑膠專輯榜亦登上榜首之位。音樂媒體亦給予非常積極的評價,其中Kerrang 把其評為滿分 「KKKKK」級,更稱它為「The Wonder Years 職業生涯的最佳專輯」。

喜歡有深意的搖滾音樂的朋友千萬不要錯過哦!

Earlier last month we have introduced The Wonder Years to you, a band that’s is known for their lyrical depth and sincere message in the songs.

Their recently released new album “No Closer To Heaven,” has landed at #9 on the Billboard Top Albums, making this the band’s largest debut of their career; also #1 spot for both the Current Alternative Albums and LP Vinyl Albums charts. It is also #12 on the Billboard Top 200. The album has received very positive review, including Kerrang!’s “KKKKK” rating and called it as “the album of their career.”

If you’re the kind of fans who also look into heartfelt messages underneath the melody, don’t miss it!

[NEW NOISE] The Flux Machine – Run Away

為大家介紹來自紐約的新樂隊 The Flux Machine。他們以old school 朋克搖滾 / 另類搖滾為聲音主軸,並剛發行了音樂錄象 Run Away。主唱 Luis Accorsi 解釋:「該視頻完全表現出樂隊的本質和侵略性,是這種音樂的完美體現。沒有噱頭,直接爽朗!」

We want to introduce a new band from New York who decides to destroy the world with old school punk rock / alternative rock sound – The Flux Machine.

In your face and human. It’s the perfect manifestation of this kind of music. No gimmicks, straight-forward, balls to the wall rock.”
