I can't be the only one at the end of the Between the Buried and Me gig to think, 'I could really do with a groove right about now'? Three bands of a similar ilk was a bit much. Was good, like.

I went to the Leeds show. Really, really enjoyed it.

Missed the Safety Fire, and Periphery were already on when I got in. They were very good – really powerful, good dynamics, and the sound was surprisingly good, for The Cockpit. I must say though, they're a mere haircut and blastbeat away from being Dream Theater.

Weirdly, it seemed that the crowd were there more for Periphery than BTBAM initially – the venue wasn't very full anyway, which really surprised me. It was maybe 1/2 - 2/3 full. But people were cheering more at the end of Periphery's set, than the beginning of BTBAM's, even though they *started* with White Walls! Ungrateful cunts. Anyway, the sound was a bit dodgy at the start of the set, meaning the wind got knocked out of White Walls' sails a tad. Still, the crowd warmed up as the set went on (not that they should've needed it). They played a good mix of material, and even though I knew a lot of it, sometimes it was a bit too technical to follow. Dazzling to watch, mind.

No Prequel to the Sequel, but I gladly traded that for the fact they played BOHEMIAN FUCKING RHAPSODY for their encore. Only the second half – they came on to a tape of the opera bit, and then played the rest of it, but it was incredible. Loved it.

So yeah, fantastic set, just hope the poor turnout (and subdued crowd) doesn't put them off coming to Leeds again…

So, Danza IV thoughts thus far; it's not as focussed as Danza 3 nor is it as chaotic (not that it doesn't have it's moments). There is a bit too much filler for my liking, however, when it crushes, it really does exactly that. Tracks like 'You Won't', 'Rudy X3', 'Hold The Line' and 'The Alpha - The Omega' are Danza staples; played and 'sung' with such intensity and ferocity. There really aren't many like Danza and it's sad that this will be their last album, especially since Josh Travis has been given a 9-string, so it would've been great to see what he would've come up with in a Danza setting with that.

This isn't a bad album by any stretch, it's in fact very good, but following up to Danza 3: ASOUE was always going to be a massive, massive ask.

New coheed is awful isn't it.

No, but it's also not a metal album, so if you were expecting that I can understand how you'd be let down. :P It's probably the strongest album they've put out since Good Apollo, and the new material is incredible live. The new line up works really well and I'm massively excited for The Afterman: Descension.

is epic.

If that's any indication of what the album is going to be like, then bring it on. As for Ascension, all of the Key Entity Extraction tracks are unique yet manage to still sound like Coheed. This is the first album where the songs have been written first and then the concept has been fit around them afterwards and it shows, the band is really finding themselves again.

Many dangers lie ahead

Some of us may never return...

Rather sold as a slave to te Saracens

Than chained to your bed.

Chained to your lives!

Holmgard and beyond!

That's where the wind will us lie

For fame and for gold

Set sail to those lands unknown.

DON'T FORGET THIS ALBUM.

I'm sailing to Konstantinopolis right now.

Nah. Super horrible loud production. The same syncopations they ways did, the boring, fill the song with as much stuff going on as the last awful record did.

It's as metal as they ever were. A bit.

Sounds like Eppard thinks he has to prove he can fill on for Pennie, when I just think Pennie added nothing to the sound.

Yeah, it's basically the Josh Travis show at times, with the widdling. I think I might end up listening to it more than III though, it took longer to get into.

Guys guys! This album is amazing. I'm sure it's up everyone's alley over here so definitely check it out. This is not your usual VN1Xcore so do yourself a favour and go here (pay what you want):

I fucking love Bandcamp. Sorry if I'm preaching to the choir but here's some stuff I came across by trawling MetalBandCamp.com

Alunah: Stonerdoom with female vocals. Super fuzzed out lovliness

Infernal Stronghold: Thrash/punk/black metal, free album. Not my kind of thing but could be up some peoples alleys

Gave half of that a spin earlier – sounds really promising. A bit like (very) early Arcturus, actually, in terms of the heavy use of keyboards. Love the artwork.
