These are just a few of my favourite records of all time, Its cheesy, its very sad, but fuck it. Disagree? fuck you then. There in no old favourites or current favourite order, there just rad.
Converge - Jane Doe
The Jane Doe card might be over played? Nah its still got its charm. I got this cd when I just left school after GCSE's, Me and my mate Ant would go skating sometimes and bring our CD walkman and plug it into these tiny little speakers and just chill, to the most un-chilled album ever. Good times.
ISIS - Oceanic
Sweet band, I introduced this band to my friend once and he showed me bands like Envy and Meat Puppets and he threw in a load of other mental bands, he used to run the radio station at his uni, which was cool. But back to my point this record is important to me because it was like a new door to newer types of metal bands, slower and more experimental. It was cool because I saw this friend of mine at a Torche show, and we hadnt seen eachother in ages, we still get the same buzz about this Isis album.
Mind Eraser - Glacial Reign
I cant even begin to count how many times ive listened to this one. If I were to order all my favourite albums into genres, this would be my favourite hardcore record. It fast, its slow and its heavy as fuck. Boston straight edge band Mind Eraser have everything I enjoy about music in a band. Sure they are the underground 'hype' band but whats not to like? By the way I dont get Sex/Vid, I dont get it.
Floor - S/T
You like Torhce, your into The Melvins, but you gotta hear Floor, If you dont know them. Sludgey metal, with a almost Garage sound featuring members of Torhce, this was their first band now split up. Sounds almost (in places) like Weezer if they wrote heavier music, But not as good, still Weezer are good. Its catchy, its mellow and tuned to G I think, I could be wrong. But its DOWNTUNED. Has songs about having sex with underage boys, and Twinks with some pretty funny lyrics its a very enjoyable listen gay or not. That last sentence makes me sound gay.
Cursed - Two
Chaotic sounds from Canada, best live band of 2008 for me. Like what a mentioned earlier about Mind Eraser, this album has it all. So physched when I bought this, Its got the sweetest production sound which makes it sound so intense. When they played in Brighton the promoter of the show lived up the road from me and Cursed stayed with him on the last, and sadly final tour. I left my house to go to work the day after the show and Chris from Cursed was walking down my street and noticed the Cursed shirt I was sporting. He stopped and we spoke for a bit it was a good start to the day, actually it was fucking awesome.
