回顧全文 Review

P.S. 感謝 While She Sleeps 分享我們的回顧專集,希望 WSS 會連續第三年來港吧!


「……While She Sleeps 在撰寫充滿赤裸情緒的歌頌式 Deathcore /金屬核音樂上很容易壓倒同一流派的樂團,這也解釋了為何在場內激烈的 Mosh Pit 中有一絲情感流的霧氣流動。灼熱叫喊與旋律基底之間潛藏的憂鬱不滿訊息成為年少觀眾的推動力,一起在音樂中分享對生活束縛和傳統世界觀的控訴……」

“…While She Sleep’s anthemic, emotion-filed deathcore / metalcore proclamation have outweighed many of their genre mates, which also explains why there’s a mist of sentiment flowing through the vigorous pit. The melancholic dissatisfaction between the searing scream and underlying melody becomes the driving force of the young teens, who share the undeniable feelings towards life and worldview, to mosh along…”

[NEWS] Avenged Sevenfold New Drummer?

記得 Avenged Sevenfold 鼓手 Arin IIejay 於七月宣布與樂團分道揚鑣? 近日 A7X 促請樂迷停止向他們發送自薦試鏡錄像,原因是他們已經聘請了新鼓手!他們表示:「我們留意到有很多出色樂手把自己打鼓的視頻上載到互聯網,希望接替 Arin 成為我們的鼓手。」

Avenged Sevenfold have urged fans to stop sending them audition videos as they have hired a new drummer. The band has been inundated with audition videos since Arin IIejay’s departure in July. The band expressed “It has been brought to our attention that a lot of videos have been posted online from some pretty amazing drummers who want to try out for Avenged Sevenfold.”

[NEWS] Slipknot – XIX

Slipknot 首播被傳媒稱為「黑暗、可怕」的視頻 XIX。歌曲收錄在他們最新專輯 .5: The Gray Chapter,為獻給2010年去世的隊員 Paul Gray 而創作。視頻是由樂隊敲擊樂手 Shawn “Clown” Crahan 執導,片段展示兩名婦女背著棺材哀悼,最後把它點燃送到水中,意類似類似於海盜葬禮。

Slipknot premiered dark, scary new video “XIX”, taken from their most recent album “.5: The Gray Chapter”. The song is dedicated to the late Paul Gray, who passed away in 2010. The video is directed by band member Shawn “Clown” Crahan, shows two women in mourning carrying a casket and sending it out into the waters while lit on fire similar to a Viking funeral.

[NEWS] Confession Disbanded

另一個令人傷心的消息 – 早前曾在香港演出的澳洲硬核樂團 Confession 宣布解散:我們將預備最後的巡演,希望到時能與舊朋友們一起出發,期望能在表演中與你們見面吧…… 多謝一直對我們支持。你可在下面閱讀聲明全文。

Another sad news in the hardcore scene – Confession, who had just performed in Hong Kong last month, announced they were breaking up “We will be booking a final tour soon, hopefully taking some friends along with us and hopefully see you at a show.. Thanks for the support people.” You can see their full statement below.

“I started this band in 2008 with the idea of continuing to do music and play shows. 7 years on, tours across Australia and the world i’m now sitting here with the idea that we’ve done enough and its time to move on. After 3 albums, 1 EP and a football side of ex members, confession has been my musical outlet and ill forever be grateful to everyone who’s supported the band and ever been apart of it. As far as music goes, this was always going to be my last ditch effort and once this was done i was done with being in a band. But it’s been great to be able to do what we have done, recorded some music and had loads of fun on the road. Not only that but meet some amazing friends along the way.
We will be booking a final tour soon, hopefully taking some friends along with us and hopefully see you at a show.. Thanks for the support people.
Everything Is Fucking Dead
Michael Crafter – Officially Retired…”

[FLASHBACK] Green Day – Wake Me Up When September Ends

上週說過American Idiot出版十一週年,當中當然少不了很適合跟九月說再見的再聽的 Wake Me Up When September Ends。

Last week American Idiot celebrated its 11th anniversary – there’s one song in the album that is perfect to describe the mood of Fall. Goodbye September, hello October!
