    I can say with full honesty I'd never heard that band before, but I'm loving what I'm hearing of that song so far.

    =D

    If you like Kylesa, might wanna check out Black Tusk and Pelican. Maybe some High on Fire or Crowbar.

    Didn't think much of Black Tusk, but holy **** Pelican is turning out to be epic. I love that ridiculously heavy sound they've got going.

    I've not heard anything from High On Fire, though if I recall correctly, the bassist from Sleep joined them after Om...so I'll check them out.

    Pretty sure High on Fire just has Mat Pike, Sleep's guitarist... don't think Al Cisneros ever played with 'em. Love Om, though.

    Yep, a quick consultation with Wikipedia, the ultimate authority on everything, has informed me that I was mistaken.

    And on the topic of Om, I could never really get into the whole half an hour long songs they were doing...nor did I much enjoy the music :x

    Some of my favorite covers:

    Hinder's cover of Thunderstruck by AC/DC
    Marilyn Manson's cover of This is Halloween from Nightmare Before Christmas
    Disturbed's cover of Land of Confusion by Genesis

    I could keep going, but I'll stop there.

    I love covers because I love hearing a song I know through another perspective. It's fascinating to me, really.

    I'd have trouble sitting in an empty room and listening to a full Om album, and they have some stuff that gets tedious regardless, but then they'll have something like At Giza or Bhima's Theme, which makes it all worth it, to me. Same with Boris and Sunn O))); hard to listen to, but can be awesome.

    Also, Marilyn Manson over Danny Elfman? I call shenanigans.

    Hey now, I never said I preferred his version.

    I was just saying that out of all the covers I have heard, that is one of my favorites.

    Pelican is amazingly epic. I really love the instrumental style of metal that's sort of grown.

    On the topic of sludge metal, Torche are pretty interesting, although I've seen them referred to as more sludge pop, which is hilarious.

    Anyone that likes Pelican really really for cereal needs to listen to Russian Circles.

    Also, the new This Will Destroy You album combines post-rock and drone to an ecstatic end.

    Strange how that happens, although it often something to do with Metal fans' tendancy to use their genre as a quality assessment. I've heard similar accusation of being pop levelled at Unsun, for example. Torche are a good band though, even if some of their songs can be disconcertingly short.

    They are also a good band, yes.

    DID SOMEBODY SAY COVERS!?!?

    Helloween - White Room (Cream cover)
    Sturmgeist - Rock Me Amadeus (Falco cover)
    KMFDM - These Boots are Made for Walkin' (Nancy Sinatra cover)
    Crüxshadows - White Rabbit (Jefferson Airplane cover)
    Stream of Passion - When The Levee Breaks (Led Zeppelin cover)
    Iron Maiden - Cross Eyed Mary (Jethro Tull cover)
    David Garrett - Thunderstruck (AC/DC cover)
    Sonata Arctica - The Wind Beneath My Wings (Bette Midler cover)
    Pain of Salvation - Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen cover)
    Warrel Dane - Patterns (Paul Simon cover)
    Iced Earth - Hallowed Be Thy Name (Iron Maiden cover)
    Northern Kings - They Don't Really Care About Us (Michael Jackson cover)
    Tarot - Veteran of the Psychic Wars (Blue Oyster Cult cover)
    Jonathan Coulton - Baby Got Back (Sir Mix-a-lot cover)
    Avantasia - Lay All Your Love On Me (ABBA cover)

    And that's just off the top of my head. If I went through my favorites, I'm sure I'd find a bunch more awesome things. I don't necessarily like those versions more than the original, but they definitely help give me a better appreciation of the songs and are cool in their own right.

    But the power to cover can also be used for evil

    You don't like the Metallica cover of Veteran of the Psychic Wars? That's one of the few Metallica things I really like, although the singing is still pretty grating. The Metallica cover of Astronomy is fairly average in general though. Cruxshadows cover of White Rabbit huh? Not sure how to feel about that.

    Meh, covers.

    Never been a big fan of covers. In my experience, 99% of the time they suck.

    Exceptions would be, say, Death's cover of Painkiller. One of the best I've heard.

    Time for some good live music.

    Got a couple more of my friend, Shannon Curtis.

    Let's Stay In. (And a repost of the music video for this song Shannon made with a single piece of paper, a black marker, and an iPhone.)
    Wasted.

    The headliner for this show was a duo, Jack and White. Jack Matranga and Brooke White, who finished 5th in the 2008 American Idol, and is now working on her music career out of the spotlight, joining up with Jack after a couple of solo albums. Fun stuff.

    Gemini.
    Double Trouble.

    I'm working on some video I shot earlier in the night featuring a young singer/songwriter who is amazing already at 16.

    Another really great cover is "Way Down In The Hole" as interpreted by the Blind Boys of Alabama.

    It's very rare that you can take a Tom Waits song and improve it, but wow, man. They made it their own.

    true...I still prefer the original Ol'55 to the Eagles' cover.

    OK, here's the footage from the other show I went to Saturday night.

    First, Matt McClean with Gunhand and It's Working For Me. Another song of Matt's, Benediction, was the very first video I uploaded to YouTube about 2 1/2 years ago.

    And now Parie Wood. Hope You Realize and Missing Pieces. I also caught another song of hers at a recent park concert event, Manifest. I don't know if any of these are necessarily spectacular knock-your-socks-off performances, but what's impressive is that she played an 11-song set with absolutely no weak links in songwriting or performance, and the fact that she's very poised and comfortable on stage doing her thing. Not bad for 16.

    I also just cataloged my YouTube page because it was getting big enough where even I was losing track of what I have on it. Right now there are 175 uploads of live music, representing 51 different musicians/acts. I'm normally not one for bragging, but in this case, I honestly think that I'm doing the best single-camera live music videos in the world. So there, I've thrown down, and welcome any challengers to the throne!

    You guys know what I reckon the biggest problem with the metal scene these days is?

    Too many isms and schisms. I mean, I'm a really big metal fan. Not as much as I used to be, when everything I listened too was metal, but still pretty big. But it seems that metal fans that like different genres, even if they're only slightly different, are massively against each other. Black metal fans and Death metal fans seem to hate each other, a lot of folk hate the Power metal fans, and then there are the little segmented doom metal fans...

    Why can't metal fans just sort of say "Okay, that stuff is cool, not really my favourite, but pretty cool"? I mean, each metal genre has its own sort metalness- I can tell a heavy metal band from a rock band 99/100 times, you know? And the only bands I can't are stuff like early SWANS, where they're very metallish, but don't identify with the genre.

    Metal fans! Join together! Peace! Love! And Unity!

    Metal fandom's been like that for ages though. The only thing that possibly exceeds it in terms of genre elitism - and the habit of weaponising that varient of 'no true scotsman' - is the particularly hipster-ish Indie crowd. If all you've seen is metal fandom, you could be forgiven for thinking that Nu-Metal was invented solely to give metal fans a category to shove bands they don't like

    I concur.
    However, I do think that's a little reductionist.
    You've got yer Black Metal, you've got yer Death/Thrash/Whathaveyou metal, you've got yer symph/folk/power metal, progressive/technical/absurd "brutal" craziness metal, metalcore/variants, and you've got yer stoner/sludge/doom/metalgaze/drone/noise metal. And probably another couple that I'm losing track of but those are the main ones, yes? 6 or 7 major subgenres. Now there are absolutely people who take it way too far, but it's unreasonable to expect a Boris fan to also be a Nightwish fan because the two bands have next to nothing in common. They're both absolutely metal, for the most part, but they're still completely different. It makes sense that a guy who likes really wanky, through composed Behold... The Arctopus type stuff might not care about Fu Manchu.
    I guess it'd be nice if everyone could just enjoy all metal, but that's a very small step from everyone enjoying all music, and as nice as that'd be, it's pretty damn idealistic.
