Songs of the Day! Sunday 2-7-10

Recommended Posts

Hey there Tiffers :) My Name's Ian, unknown on the forums, but very active with the community in-game. I've decided to make a Songs of the Day thread for Underrated and otherwise unknown bands.

 

Note: I will be putting ALL types of music in these threads, and I will be covering the more unknown bands that I can think of. I'm sorry to say that I'm a bit of a Country music hater, but I will do my best to find some good ones eventually.

 

Title: Industrial Revolution

Artist: Immortal Technique

Genre: Rap/Hip Hop

Year: 2003

Album: Industrial Revolution vol. 2

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb3gB-qY2bQ

Pros:

This is, in my opinion, one of the greatest rappers in the modern age. He's a Political Activist, who expresses his beliefs through his lyrics. And being the Rage Against the Machine fanboy that I am, I instantly fell in love. This is one of the greatest mixed of Old School soul and New school technicality, a Must hear

 

Cons:

The new age of rap really ruined it for me. I used to love listening to Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Nas, South Central Cartel, etc. I just really don't like rap anymore. I'll try and include it as much as possible, but you will NOT see any Lil Wayne on this list.

 

 

 

 

 

Title: White Washed

Artist: August Burns Red

Genre: Metalcore

Year: 2009

Album: Constellations

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8MBnc90nC4

 

 

Pros: After "Pope Skills" told me about this band a few months back, I just HAD to hear more. August Burns Red is a Christian Metalcore band, who's breakdowns and talent surpasses most other Metalcore bands that i've heard! They have a great sound, the drummer is extremely precise, as is the lead guitarist. The vocalist sounds great with the band, and They have a lot of great sounds.

 

Cons:

Other than not having a lot of songs out currently(3 albums), they really don't have much to complain about. The only thing I could think of is that they seem to play slower Metal, which is highly unusual for Metalcore. Nevertheless, it sounds great, and I would rate this band 9.4/10

Title: Here and Now

Artist: The Ernies

Genre: Punk/ska

Year: 1999

Album: Meson Ray

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgRF0EXvZFM

Pros:

This song is STILL used today in various commercials featuring stunts/action scenes. Was recently used by "Nitro circus" (Travis Pastrana, Johnny Knoxville, etc.) in one of their shows. This song Really brought this band fame, and was Part of the original Tony Hawk Pro Skater's Soundtrack in 1999. Meson Ray was their first debut Album

 

Cons:

This band is no longer around, and didn't make very many songs. It is great to hear from time to time on the radio or in a movie

 

 

 

 

Title: My Own Summer

Artist: Deftones

Genre: Nu Metal

Year: 2006

Album: Unknown

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=athi8hYGJ3g

(Ignore the video, the Original music video has embedding disabled.)

 

Pros:

This Band has a GREAT Sound to it. Not many bands play this sort of Psychedelic New age rock. The guitarist is Very talented, as well as a steady line from the Bass. This band is also Insane live! They sound just as good on this video as they do in front of a crowd. Definitely a band to look into

 

Cons:

Not many people like the Vocalist. He has an odd sort of off-pitch key, but still manages to hold the song together. Other than that, this should be a song for any of you hard rock/metal fans out there :)
