23:23 - s_t_s hey not that I miss them so but fo you know where band Deathstars's gone ? Seem they vanished...
21:47 - Risto It's their own tongue-in-cheek description. The vocals tip it over to the avantgarde side I think.
19:55 - Moose Many thanks to whoever introduced me to Astronoid via the shoutbox the other day. Their new album, Air, is magnificent. I can even understand why some refer to their genre as "Dream Thrash".
19:12 - Opethian @Apothecary, I got to meet him when I saw them play at Denver this past January. Dude is down to earth and was a privilege to get to meet him and Dallas \M/
18:18 - Apothecary Yeah, you wouldn't want to get in a fight with him though. Just check out this vid lol, apparently at this show some dumbass was throwing beer on his pedals [link]
18:01 - Marcel Hubregtse Karl is a small,. albeit quite fattish mf. He is smaller than I am. And I am only 5'11"
Are you back? Good, because I'm about to get started. The basic structure of this album is a fun, simplistic and catchy industrial album. This is nothing you haven't seen before; your standard forty minute album with thirteen, three-ish minute tracks. The only thing that differentiates this from any other industrial album is the awful album title, and immature album cover. Apart from those two differences, this is just another, sub-par album: repetitive songs, cheesy synths, and even worse lyrics.
What's not to love?
I mean really, this is a catchy slab of music that makes my toe tap. Sure I probably wouldn't pick it off my shelf and play it every single day, but this is far from being terrible. In fact, I'm even going to go out and say, I like Satanic Pop Metal. There, happy now?
But really, if this album was titled anything but, I'm sure it would not be getting the rap that it has. It's funny to see that something as small as the cover, or title, can sabotage a perfectly fine album. It's almost saddening to think that most of the people bashing this, probably haven't even heard it past the second track. In the end, Satanic Pop Metal is decent, if you give it a chance.
If that video is anything to go by then this is far too straightforward and functional to be given less than 5 really. It's so straight up and inoffensive that it practically begs for an average score, rather than a negative one.
