    That song ain't bad, my Chumley. Probably not the stuff I'd listen too on a regular basis, but still pretty cool.

    Same, but I loved the music video.

    So.

    The second single from Justice' second album came out todayish, depending on timezones.

    My thoughts so far: FREAKIN' AWESOME.

    I CANNOT wait for this album.

    uh..metal..there's very little metal I like..and I will admit with not a hint of shame that I have no clue as to what sub-genre of metal they fall into..or if they are all, indeed, metal.

    the few names that spring to mind are
    Uriah Heep
    AC/DC
    Nirvana
    Manowar
    Blind Guardian
    Rhapsody of Fire (because it has Christopher Lee in it, so it's made of WIN)
    Metallica

    Of these, I don't know about Uriah Heep, but AC/DC is heavy rock, not metal, and Nirvana is Seattle grunge, not metal.

    Also, I met and chatted with Care Failure, the lead singer from local garage punk rock band Die Mannequin today. Was nice. She's really nice.

    Indie, you think? Maybe it was just that song, but they're just as shoegazey and postpunk as they are indie... which isn't much. But then, depends on how you define indie. To me, indie rock's stuff like Wilco and Arcade Fire. Bland, I can understand, though.

    As to the name, sounds WAY more metal than it does indie. While there are plenty of ridiculous indie band names out there, I can't think of a single one that'd do something as cheesy and unironic as Trail of Dead.

    Uriah Heep was actually one of the first first forerunners of metal. That list seems to lean towards plain old heavy metal and power metal. I'd say anything from Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, that lot might strike your fancy.


    Also, speaking of Most Grand Chancellor Sir Lord Christopher Lee, he recently made his own orchestral/symphonic/metal album, called Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross. And it's exactly as awesome as it sounds.

    Picking a very metal-sounding name for a very un-metal band is ironic naming, so we're immediately back in indie band naming territory

    Still wouldn't class them as being metal themselves though.

    Perhaps not, but in the same way that Led Zep isn't metal: you can still hear the influences in their music.

    They're just as closely, or at least almost as closely, linked to metal.

    Again, I don't think it's supposed to be ironic. Trail of Dead just takes themselves... pretty seriously.

    Y'know, if you wanna call Trail of Dead metal/metal-esque or just plain not inde then do so, I'm really not bothered about it enough to argue it. The one song of theirs you linked to sounds, to me, like it would fall under the more umbrella usage of the term 'indie' (here meaning the more post-punk/indie-rock side of Alternative, particularly a large chunk of the 'post-punk revival', e.g. Editors, Interpol, Bloc Party etc.)
    If you disagree then fine, we'll just leave it at that. I really don't want to bog the thread down with another pointless genre-debate.

    By no stretch of the imagination am I saying Trail of Dead is metal, and I guess I should clarify my frustration with referring to them as "indie": whenever they put out a good album, it's labeled as indie. Whenever they put out a bad one, it's labeled as prog. They're clearly not prog, but there are elements there; maybe not in the song I linked, but in plenty of others. And, sure, there are indie elements, but I guess I'll I'm saying is it's a little reductionist to just label 'em as one or the other.

    Also, speaking of post-punk, anyone have any thoughts on Public Image Limited? I really, really don't want to like 'em, but there's something so frustratingly compelling about their music...

    Uhm, so, Crippled Black Phoenix.

    or Pure Reason Revolution.

    Neither really gets enough attention to please me, though the former can get a bit too Pink Floyd-esque at times, and the latter is becoming progressively worse, album by album.

    Does anyone here in this thread have a favourite version of Tainted Love? I mean, Tainted Love is a pretty widely covered song without any particular definitive version.

    Personally, I like the Soft Cell version, which is bouncy synthpoppy style stuff, and the Coil version, which is a downright creepy droney song about the last thoughts of a man who has AIDS.

    Marilyn Manson version first, Soft Cell version (although not Where Did Our Love Go) a close second.

    I am currently attempting to broaden my Electronic Music (all all various subgenres). Currently I have Daft Punk (also Stardust) and Justice that I've loved forever, a handful of Deadmau5 and a bit of Armin Van Buuren that I've just gotten into. Really, I'm looking for something either super electro and danceable or super 70s and funk a la Daft Punk.

    AVO was still good I'd say, although Hammer and Anvil was pretty weak. Still a bit sad they're splitting-up, and it doesn't exactly help we've already lost Oceansize this year.

    CHeck out some Cold Wave stuff, or minimalist electro. I have a bunch of compilations 'bout that stuff. Also, Air is worth listening to! As is Holy Eff, only with the full swear-word.

    Digitalism's some great electrohouse, probably the most energetic electronic group I know of.
    Black Moth Super Rainbow's REALLY hard to categorize; they're definitely electronic, but they're less dance music and more lying in a field on a sunny day music.
    Glitch Mob's halfway between some of the more polished dubstep, and Derezzed Daft Punk, while being neither dubstep nor house. I dunno what your tolerance for cheese is, but I've got a soft spot for 'em...
    Hercules & Love Affair are as late-70s-disco as you can get without a time machine; Larry Levan woulda crapped himself if he'd heard 'em.
    Huoratron DJs metal shows. His music has nothing to do with metal and it still ends up heavier than most of the guys he plays with.
    The Juan Maclean does pretty classic Deep House, the best I've ever heard.

    And so on and so forth.
