• Moj Top10 ove metalne godine

    Dez 15 2008, 17h23

    Prvo i osnovno, nisu svi albumi iz 2008. godine, ali su definitivno najslusaniji u protekloj godini... pa evo jedan mali osvrt na top 10.

    1. Eluveitie - Slania


    Bez puno dvojbe. Jednostavno najsvjeziji i najupecatljiviji album po meni u zadnjih godinu dana. Ne slusam folk metal i sve variacije na zadanu temu, ali Slania je daleko od toga. Zabavan (da da) i raznolik album.

    2. In Flames - A Sense of Purpose


    Show na metal campu je potvrdio samo da In Flamesi nose titulu najboljeg zabavnog metal benda. Glazba se lako moze opisati kao pop metal bez kompromisa. :D Novi album samo potvrdzuje sve ostalo, da su In Flamesi jedan od najmilijih bendova danasnjice. A pod tim ne mislim na ove (one) black-gore-emo bendove koje klinci slusaju kako bi odagnali bol dok si rade nove crtice s ziletom na zapescu. Word Up!

    3. Lamb of God - Sacrament


    Ma Sacrament je staro kopile od LOG-a koje jednostavno ne moze biti ne slusano iako je jos iz 2007.godine. Malo se toga moze prigovoriti ali kada Redneck zaprasi sve se oprasta.

    4. Meshuggah - ObZen


    Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu-Tr-tu.... da, to se zove dobar ritam. Glava gore-dolje i lagani headbang jer Bleed nije za pičkice... Pickice zovu mamu u pomoc da ih zastiti od zavidno preciznih i kirurski tocnih udaranja po instrumentima

    5. Talpa - The Art of Being Non


    Dvojba? Dal da uvrsim Maynarda s njegovim 'V is for Vagina' ili Talpu? Moram odabrati jedan laganiji album... I eto, tu je ipak Talpa. Album The Art of Being Non mi je sjeo kao budali pleska i psy-trance melodije su nahranile moj mozak lucidnim zvukom kojeg sam bio gladan kao pseto. Elektronsku glazbu moze raditi svaka budala, ali pokazati talent i to poduprijeti odlicnim albumom moze samo sacica. Infected M. Je izbacio i Vicius Delicius, ali oni su stara garda i od njih se moze ocekivati dobar album.

    6. AC/DC - Black Ice


    Rokenrol i bluz. Klasicna kombinacija koja ne moze izgubiti. Dinosauri su jos tu i globalno zatopljenje im izgleda ne smeta da naprave proklasan comeback.

    7. Protest the Hero - Fortress (72)


    Metalcore danas mahom proizvode mlađahniji glazbenici koji vecinom nisu posebno talentirani. U moru metalcore bendova rjetki se mogu izdvojiti kao oni vrijedni slusanja. PTH nije jedan od tih. Kombinacijom vise podzanrova samog metalcorea i dodavanjem doze progresivnog metala kao sto to zene rade s vegetom kao kada juhu spremaju, oni su po drugi put dokazali da imaju dobitnu kombinaciju i dovoljno talenta da bunar ideja ne ostane prazan jos par godina. Svaka cast na Fortress, osobno jedno od najvecih iznenadzenja godine.

    8. Opeth - Watershed


    Koga spomenuti za naj death album? Arch Enemy ili Opeth? Zanrovski toliko dva razlicita benda!
    Jebes ga, AE je puno bolji posao napravio s prijasnjijim albumima, Rise of the Tyrant je dobar album ali se moze samo sramiti kada se ispred njega neko od starijih remekdjela... Opeth za ljepo cudo je isto napravio losiji album od Ghost R., ali Watershed ima svoje trenutke genijalnosti koje jedino Opeth d.o.o. moze proizvesti. Mikael did it again!

    9. Gojira - The Way of All Flesh


    Konfuzno, masno, tesko kao prava čorba skuvana samo na kobasicama i slanini... To je opis Gojirine glazbe uopce a zadnji album nije nista drugaciji. Jedina zamjerka su rifovi i melodije koje su se vec pojavile u Gojirinim albumima... Iskreno, mislim da su mogli i bolje. Samo je trebalo jos malo poraditi na albumu i ispeglati ga do zadnjeg riffa, to bi onda bilo nenadjebivo remekdjelo.

    10. Cradle of Filth - Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder (79)


    Dani Vaginaface, aka. Pigvoice. COF se nalazi ovdje iz samo jednog i jedinog razloga... A to je plagiranje Dimmu Borgira. Ocito su malo previse slusali DB i ufurali se u njihov stil... Na kraju su nazalost dobili po meni pristojan album koji se sere po njihovoj cijeloj dosadasnjoj discografiji. Pa eto da se i ja prikljucim trendu i poserem po cijeloj prijasnjoj discografiji COF-a... Ovaj album je drugaciji i dapace jako slusljiv. Tko voli neka izvoli... ja sam izvolio. :D

    Eto, neka 2009 proizvede barem djelic onoga sto je ova godina pustila u opticaj... Neka se narod veseli i opija... neka metal camp 2009 dovede vise americkih smradova i sve ce biti dobro... a ja odo slusati ovu novu Sepulturu jer smrdi na dobro... cuje se solaza na vise djelova pa ajde, neka im je.
  • SLAYER 16.11.08. UAT: chapter III

    Nov 17 2008, 15h39

    Sun 16 Nov – The Unholy Alliance Tour: Chapter III

    Trying to make this article short is easy. Slayer needs no description. Flawless performance as you expect from them. Almost 2 satanic hours of non-stop instrument and speakers molestation. Although years are catching them, they still manage to perform and take the crown as kings of metal! (or that was somebody's else crown, it doesn't matter really)

    So, to make short text long, here it goes.
    Nine of us took a ~1000km long journey from Split, Croatia to Vienna, Austria.
    Without no obstacles on our trip we arrived at Gasometer at ~6:00 pm. We had seating tickets. So imagine you go to see Slayer for the first time in your life and you need to watch them from a chair. Unforgeable. I want to mosh and see slayer from 2 meters. As we arrived at gasometer we were looking for a way to bypass security and get down to the 'arena'. To bad security did not expect us to come and to try harder. Two brainiacs from our group figured a way to get down. All wee needed is to borrow 2 tickets from somebody and take one person at a time by security. Thx Bishop for the second ticket. As i positioned my self at the end of the mosh-pit and got my girlfriend at one hand and cold beer at the other hand, massacre could start. And indeed the massacre it was! As i mentioned before Slayer performed flawless. Sound, visual and the atmosphere were at it's best.

    Although Slayer was my main reason to go, I've also wanted to see Mastodon.
    And boy how I got disappointed. Mastodon took it's part very seriously and did the best they can. If I may be humble, they are one man short and still they have proved to be a wonderful group of people with remarkably high skills to play metal music. Perfect blend of rock and metal. I've always prefer 'American metal school', especial this new wave with LOG on it's front. Mastodon is in my top ten American bands and they did an outstanding performance, nothing less then I've expected.
    So where did it go wrong? Why I'm disappointed?
    I don't know what went wrong, but there was not a single mosh-pit while Mastodon played. So, yea. I'm kinda disappointed in Austrian metal fans for not listening Mastodon more. no hard feeling, you are still one hell of a nation and I've felt really welcome at Gasometer, but for Good's sake do listen more of Mastodon. :-)

    Overall, the crowd was OK. Decent mosh-pit, although I'm barely in pain today. Don't know if it's me, but I've expected blood and broken bones at Slayer concert! ;-)

    So, try to catch Unholy Alliance III. You will be amazed, and remember that Slayer is not getting any younger!

  • Down and up!

    Set 14 2008, 20h08

    Jea, za dobro jutro me docekaju gromovi i hitni unplug routera i 'servera', ali ok, veseli me cinjenica da sam sinoc uboja novi Sonic Syndicate album za download pa ajde, cim stane grmit zavrtit cu i to...
    E jebiga, bas za inat kad sam ocekivao pravi pop-melodic death metal uradak dobijem sranje album i pomanjkanje odlicnog zenskog vokala. Fuj, zvuce kao da je Take That napravio death metal comeback. Eto jos jedan mlad i perspektivan bend u kanti za odpatke...
    No evo good news za desetak minuta, iskopam novi Gojira - The Way of All Flesh . Prvo mi kroz glavu prodze, JEA, UBOD MJESECA. (to je ono kad se ubode dobar download). I evo albuma na 100% kroz desetak minuta pa onda krene na lagani play, onako non-šalantno da zuji u pozadni. I sto ga vise slusam sve je bolji. Evo sad ide po sigurno četvrti put u cili play i album jednostavno zvuci nenadjebivo. Dobra strana price je sto nisu puno odmakli od tocke di su stali s proslim albumom. Malo su evolvuirali, dosta rifova i blastbetova je reciklirano ali ne zamjeram ni najmanje jer jos uvijek zvuci kvalitetno i svjeze, pravi uvod u ovo jebeno-zimsko razdoblje. ....

    Sad mi cRni uletija na msn kako je Gojira zakon pa san izgubija ovu nit...

    Ali moran se vratit jos jednom na Sonic Syndicate kako bi potvrdija da sam duboko razocaran novim albumom. Osobno puno ocekujem od takozvane 'melodic death skandinavske skole', uspon koji su In Flamesi i recimo Raunchy napravili s zadnjim albumima bio je jednak kao kad su se prije dvije-tri godine na scenu probili Scar Symmetry , Sonic Syndicate, Diablo i drugi... No IMHO In Flamesi su napravili odlican album, Rounchy isto tako nikad nije bija bolji, Scar Symmetry i Diablo su poprilicno OK iako nisu izazvali previse uzbudzenja, ali evo Sonic Syndicate je totalno podbacio. ocito im nije odgovaralo dugo i suncano ljeto bez kapi kise...

    Kako bilo da bilo linkove potrazite sami, svi ste vi odrasli i snaci cete se, SS slobodno preskocite, Gojiru ... e jebiga, na dobar download niko ne zali bandwidth ako vec nema flat.

    Thu 3 Jul – METALCAMP 2008

    IMHO only few words should be written about MC this year. 'It was fucking brutal'

    It was my third time at MC, difference on the years before is shitloads of fun and action (like saving yourself from getting an illness).
    Rain and wind kinda gave it a brutal twist. If your tent stands still and it doesn't get soaking wet, where is the fun?! Actually seeing Behemoth playing five songs on that weather is kinda fun, and then you get back to your tent and find it wet and 10 meters away.... oh the fun newer ends.

    That day was the most brutal to me. All bands were moved up couple of hours and you can separate pussy's from real metalheads. Ministry and Opeth were playing realy late that night but after all day of rain it all worth it.

    Well, the rain was pretty fun to me. But also were In Flames, Apocalyptica, Iced Earth, Soilwork and Arch Enemy at the end.
    I don't wanna get into describing all these show since they all were fucking awesome to me. Don't get me wrong, other band were great but seeing this mentioned above was all kind of new experience for me. Such passion and aggressively is transformed to the crowd that it was fucking lovely to see.

    In the end, I'm getting there next year for sure and I really hope they will find Marijan until that.
    Also wanna say hallo to few Estonian, Russian and Bosnian guys that made this one so special for me.

    Keep up the good work saving your money and let's all get there in great numbers like we were on Apocalyptica. And yes, getting back home from metal camp to your everyday life and mobile phone ringing really sucks.

    See you there MC 2009. :D

  • The Ocean, Kocka, Split

    Mai 10 2008, 10h43

    The Ocean, Kocka
    vrlo kratko.
    odaziv ljudi, tako-tako, ocekivao sam i vise ali izgleda da split jednostavno ne moze ponuditi kvalitetnog metalca koji voli kvalitetan i dobar metal. Pomalo lose za split, ali sta je tu je.

    Ozvucenje, IMHO kocka je poznata po tome sto drze sound na 150%, ovo je mozda bilo na 120%, nije toliko lose iako mislim da je moglo biti i bolje.

    Svirka, mislim da su momci dali sve od sebe. Dobro i kvalitetno su rasturili publiku (inace, pohvala svima koji su bili s menom u pit-u kad su krenili neredi).
    Uglavnom, bilo je briljantno.
