回顧全文 Review

「…… 儘管骷顱化妝、低沉擊鼓和殘暴配樂使人對 Behemoth 產生不寒而慄之感,但樂團在現場對香港歌迷卻展示令人意想不到的友好姿態,更多次主動邀請歌迷合唱。閉上眼睛,一同步進虛無的黑暗意念空間 —— Nergal 燃燒的火把、汗水滲透的 Mosh Pit、黑金藝術的張力 —— 讓熾熱之感在血液中流動 ……」

“…Despite of the ghost makeup, heavy blast and brutal notes, Behemoth indeed show an unbelievable friendly gesture to their Hong Kong fans. They constantly invite fans to sing along, play around and free themselves into the darkness void. Close your eyes and feel the heat, from the fire Nergal just lights up, from the sweat-soaked mosh pit and from the tension in the leash of the overpowering black metal work of art…”

[NEWS] Avenged Sevenfold New Drummer Announced!

Avenged Sevenfold 新鼓手人選終於揭盅!Brooks Wackerman 決定離開合作十多年的傳奇朋克樂隊 Bad Religion,接棒 Arin 成為 A7X 新鼓手。M. Shadows 今天在 Chris Jerich 的廣播節目 Talk Is Jericho 公布此消息:「老實說,當 Jimmy 去世後,我們列出多個理想接任人的名字去完成 Nightmare 的音樂,那時 Brooks 也在名單之上。最後我們挑選了 Mike Portnoy,雖然現在我們仍覺得那是正確的選擇,但其實當時巡演經理也提出了 Brooks 的名字,可是他也正在為 Bad Religion 的工作埋頭苦幹,而外界亦可能會因為他是個朋克鼓手已對其能力產生疑惑 ⋯⋯」

我們在年前有幸曾與 Brooks 會面,感覺他是個非常踏實的音樂人,希望 Brooks 與樂團會產生火花吧,說到尾 A7X 早期的音樂也是有點朋克基底的。

Arin Ilejay 於七月宣布與 A7X 分道揚鑣後,不少樂迷蜂擁把自己打鼓的片段上載到 YouTube,希望能吸引到樂團的注意,成為 Arin 的接班人。

Avenged Sevenfold new drummer announced! Brooks Wackerman from the legendary punk rock band Bad Religion, will be the new man behind A7X’s kit. He had been a member of the band for over a decade.

M. Shadows revealed the news on Chris Jericho’s podcast, Talk Is Jericho. “To be honest, Brooks’ name has always been in the mix. It was one of the names we were throwing around when Jimmy passed away in terms of who was going to step up for Nightmare. We felt Mike Portnoy was the right choice and we still feel that way. Mike just destroyed on the record. He was perfect. But at the time, our tour manager brought up Brooks’ name as well. But at the time he was also busy with Bad Religion and it was also… people were going to look at it differently because he was a punk drummer at this point.” (via Lambgoat)

After Arin Ilejay parted ways with the A7X back in July, lots of drummers have been since posting audition videos to YouTube.

[NEWS] Coldplay Copy Bring Me The Horizon?

自從 Coldplay 本週在英國街頭張貼下張專輯的宣傳海報後,迅即惹來有關其封套設計的討論 —— 你可否覺得樂團的新專輯圖案與 Bring Me The Horizon 的 Sempiternal 封套非常相似?有些樂迷認為這是純粹巧合,只是兩個樂團都用上著名的「生命之花 Flower of Life」而已。你又覺得如何呢?

Ever since Coldplay are dropping their promotional posters of their upcoming album around UK, debates have been aroused about its cover art – do you think it looks Bring Me The Horizon’s Sempiternal? Some say it’s pure coincidence of both using the famous “Flower of Life” symbol. What do you think?
