Talked about or hyped?

Post some links then

I love music, predominately rock music, but I became bored with it. For some reason, I can't quite put my finger on, this band struck a chord with me.
The image this band has, doesn't fit with the music they play.
Check wiki out to read about them.

I've seen a lot written about them, and have been intending to check them out for a while, and you're right about that.

I like it, though.

Oh them! right, I know who you're talking about now. Yes, they're getting the promo push atm.

Honest opinion? Sounds like a lightweight Blue Oyster Cult tribute band. Pleasant enough sounding but not worth the hype. I think the disguises & deliberate obscuring of who they are is rather clever though. It makes people curious.

It just strikes me as artificial though.

I know, instead of discovering good music people would rather talk about Paris Hilton! Oh well what can we do about it!?

I liked both of those. Especially the Orange Goblin. It was like a trip back to the 70s

I thought the funny Red Fang video was better than the song tbh.

I'll give that a listen in a bit. I'm checking out more Orange Goblin - The Fog atm.

Where does the 'stoner' bit come in? Just sounds like early 70s metal to me. Oooo, got Shine on now. I think they just went back to '68 lol

right, ignore my previous question about 'stoner' . Three minutes in & it's obvious this track is best enjoyed with copious quantities of Red Leb & some sandalwood burning in the background

Finally, a thread i can get on board with.

Tomahawk - White Hats/Black Hats.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WwXBRpqsyY

Also, can some kind person explain to me how you put a link on that simply says the name of the artist and song? I just tried it for ten mins and couldn't figure it out.

Do you have the new Tomahawk CD? I've not picked it up so far. I loved the first one, the second had it's moments, and I never bothered with Anonymous. It's not really hard rock, but I always thought this was pretty intense on head phones (particularly the end).

I've decided this thread is sorely in need of some tracks from the mighty Swedish war machine Sabaton.


First up, one from their first demo, recorded 2001 (I think)

The Hammer Has Fallen I can't get over that voice coming out of a 21 year old

From their first album Metalizer - Burn Your Crosses


Then they discovered war.

Primo Victoria (D Day)

Attero Dominatus - The fall of Berlin

Cliffs Of Gallipoli "There is no enemy, there is no victory. Only boys who lost their lives in the sand"

Passchendaele - The Price Of A Mile "Six miles of ground has been won. Half a million men are gone.....What's the price of a mile?"

Uprising - The Warsaw uprising 1944.

The battle for Stalingrad

Screaming Eagles US paratroops at the battle of the Bulge. Try headbanging to this one & your head will fall off

Now we go back to the 17th century & the rise & fall of the Swedish empire, from their latest album Carolus Rex
Lion From The North

Title track Carolus Rex

And I'll end with a couple of fun pieces from earlier albums. See how many metal references you can spot
Metal Machine

Metal Crue

You're welcome

Which song/s got you into this sort of music? I grew up listening to irish, country, soul and pop but one day a lad at school played me Phantom of the Opera - Iron Maiden, i had never heard anything like it, i was hooked after that.

He was still finding his voice back then, bless him. He was never meant to be the vocalist - joined the band as the keyboard player. The band wanted to do a demo but they hadn't got around to getting a singer, so the others got him to do the vocals, as he'd written the songs. The intention was to get a singer at a later date but it kept getting put off.

It was a big hit for them in Sweden - got to no1 in 2008

When's the last time a metal track did that here?
