I'm currently listening to dillinger escape plan's setting fire to sleeping giants.
I've already heard the self titled Chinese democracy track (on sirius not pirated) from the new guns n roses and I must say im my opinion its a letdown when compared to his earlier work with guns in roses lyric wise.

What about sound wise? Most of the time for me, as long as the music is good the lyrics could be jibberish for all I care.

@scorpio the music is sub par nothing really standsout,since apparently a good improvisional guitarist is too much for him but if you like the whole new rock bands who dont do solos then its passible but not exactly what i think of when i want to hear gnr

This time round listening to slayer's song supremist.

I love KMFDM. Anarchy is my favorite song from them. Though I also like Virus and Leid Und Elend

Finally some music talk I could get into! I still prefer Nihil over anything else but I just pulled out Money and gave that a relistening. Great stuff, I haven't listened to KMFDM in a while. I've been too stuck on Front Line Assembly lately.

At this very moment i'm listening to Blind Guardian's "Nightfall In Middle Earth" yet again. It's not my favourite album and there's a common agreement that it takes some time to fully appreciate this one in particular. Be that as it may, i think it's perfectly suited to listen to when reading Berserk. Enhances the mood by rougly 90% for me.

Well a band I found to be good to listen to while reading berserk is acid bath's when the kite string pops cd.

I'm listening to amon amarth's twilight of the thunder god.

Yeah I keep meaning to say that MGMT has the best album of the year in this thread. Because they do. Even if they are a bunch of lame ass psychedelic hippies, their music is just fucking FUN, but it's also tinted with a kind of sadness. They make me think of what Sigur Ros would have developed into if they weren't tragically crippled by their stilted pretention.

Here's a few hits:
Future Reflections, the song I keep coming back to over and over, especially once it catches its groove around the 2m mark - its the climax of the album.

Of Moons, Birds and Monsters. The 2.5 minute instrumental segment is another height of the album.

And of course, Kids, their big single.

MGMT is fucking brilliant. And, I would agree, their's is certainly one of the best albums this year. And despite how quickly I got burnt out on it, I'd say Vampire Weekend's is right up there, too.

If you like MGMT, maybe you'd like to check out Cut/Copy, if you haven't already. Similar in some ways; in an electro-poppish way.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

"Kids" made me get the whole album. But i was disappointed. I only enjoy "Kids" ( :troll:). Bastards fooled me with the single.

It's far, far too different from the kind of stuff I usually listen to. Too full of emotions I don't like. I like Rhapsody Of Fire and Blind Guardian. Music regarding good, evil, dragons, conquest, and treasure.

Another album perfect for the Fall and Winter months (and I'm, admittedly, a bit late on this):

We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Saw The Who tonight, opening act was good too: Inward Eye, good frontman, drummer, and lots of energy and stage presence, a real power trio, the kind of band you have to experience live to fully appreciate. They properly set the tone so The Who couldn't just come out like corpses, and they didn't disappoint, they still fucking got it, they're just older and more bitter. :guts:
