The "What are you listening to?" thread!

Post by prozium »

Song :
Artist :
Album :
Genre :
Released :
Song Length :
Why You Like It : ('I like it' does not suffice)
Best Bit : (in a '0:00' format with a short description)
Favourite Line(s) : (if the song has lyrics)

Got this from another forum I frequent, thought it might be fun ^__^ I'll go first

Song : God Hates A Coward
Artist : Tomahawk
Album : Tomahawk
Genre : Alternative/progressive rock/metal/avantegarde
Released : 2001
Song Length : 2:39
Why You Like It : Mike Patton has an amazing voice, short a simply. In this song we're treated to some of his most varied vocal styles, we've got the low, sort of distorted, kind of bitter sounding verse parts as well as the light distorted screams which lead up to the chorus, which is sung in a very beautiful almost radiohead style.

To accompany this we've got an underlying guitar riff that is both catchy and complex (if you've ever tried playing it you'll know!) and a wonderfull chorus as well.
Best Bit : 1:44 - 2:10The second verse which is very catchy and where towards the end Patton almost loses all sense of the words and just the pure energy comes out and leads to another wonderfull chorus. The kind of vocal "freak out" jined by an all ready awesome sounding verse is just so awesome :D
Favourite Line :
"I'll eat the death
Where the rooster crows
Flesh rodeo, yee-har, it's
Just to push in your teardrops
Make you a cyclops
Breakin' the branches off your family tree
Keep you up like a fluffer girl
Ain't that enough of the
Look in the sewer for my pedigree"


Random, dark and humerous, much like all of Pattons excelent stuff.

Ah Holy Wood, GREAT album, one of his best IMO. godeatgod and the fight song alone justify it as a great metal album, but disposable teens and president dead make it so much more :D Good choice MC :D
