A hundred albums? Part 1
by Darkside Momo | 16.06
It's been a long while since I last wrote a blog post (whether here on MS or elsewhere, tbh). Happened that I was reflecting about how I would select one hundred albums (like, a big, round number) in all my virtual and real collection - which ones would they be? And what portrait would they deliver of me, my tastes, and my history as an avid music listener? The challenge appealed to me, so here it is - as a series of blogs and not articles (like, it's totally personal and egocentric stuff :P). It'll feature all the most important albums in my life, whether I love them unquestioningly,...

A Scholarly Analysis Of Six Feet Under's "Murdered In The Basement"
by ScreamingSteelUS | 21.05
Chris Barnes's post-Cannibal Corpse career has been a wild ride. He formed Six Feet Under, he was in a fantastic commercial for a local car dealership, and I guess that's it. Things have been rough on the musical front for a few decades now, as you might expect from someone whose favorite pastimes include punching superior vocalists in the face, and Chris has now achieved the impossible by making music exactly as disgusting as the lyrics he so expertly composed during his tenure in Cannibal Corpse.

Bullet Height - No Atonement

Remember the amazing Pure Reason Revolution which split up about half a decade ago? Well, Bullet Height is the spiritual successor put together by the former PRR guitarist Jon Courtney, joined by Sammi Doll on vocals. It's a bit darker, a bit heavier, and somewhat more electronic, yet it unmistakably retains the vocal harmonies and songwriting hooks that made PRR so good. It is recognisable as a follow up to PRR's "Hammer and Anvil" and, if anything, advice to follow the musician has never been more apt.

Try "Bastion," "Hold Together," or "Wild Words."
