Album of the week


Norma Jean are back and following the trend just as good as anyone has ever done. Let’s get this out of the way now, this is not a hark back to their roots; in fact NJ have traveled so far from home it’s doubtful they even remember where they live. That of course isn’t to say that they haven’t evolved along the way, nor is it to say that they’ve stopped ripping off bands because they haven’t. Except it’s ok as long as they continue ripping off good ones. This time around they show the world how in love they are with The Dillinger Escape Plan not to mention how over Botch they are and thank God cause Botch was so 10 years ago.

Few things have changed in camp Norma Jean, first and foremost the breakdowns, the staple of metalcore brigade, are presented on this disc better than 90% of the genre which is something you can’t say often. They keep the momentum at top notch throughout the entire offering and distinguish themselves from each other extremely well. Album opener and first single Leaderless and Self Enlisted ends on a crass note plagued by hammered dissonant chords and the most unfriendly of vocals thanks to Cory Putnam. From then on you can basically tell which tracks were made to rip off the ears and which were meant to soothe by reading the titles. Bastadizer for anyone who hasn’t caught on yet is a vengeful tune that contains a bombastic intro, and is centered around a hook + a riff that wouldn’t feel out of place on an Every Time I Die record. And then… there was Blood Burner an attempt to create a devastating piece of carnage and easily the heaviest Norma Jean song to date. Backed by an exhausting guitar lead and sporadic drum fills the song feels like a bottomless pit of breakdowns and build ups. Sometimes the song is interesting like at the 0:47mark and sometimes the song grows mindless moments like the 2 hour (or something) breakdown that closes the song.

Of course the band does try branching out every now and again, but the downside is the moments are too few and far between. Track two The Anthem of the Angry Brides is plagiarism all the way through on DEP’s account but that’s a topic for a different day. With a vibrant bass intro and estranged guitar riff centered on the catchiest dissonance I’ve heard in a while its a perfect pitch for the home run the bros hit once the breakdown makes it way - a bitter line of "You're not getting under my skin!". The only downside is how weak it makes the rest of the album look barring a few other instances. Falling From the Sky: Day Seven is the most radio friendly I’ve ever heard the band attempt, and it’s obvious they made this decision after hearing Hollow Crown – just listen to that intro. A six minute offering of a sullen bass creep, and an unfortunate typical build up for its well executed climatic chorus make this the best NJ ballad to date.

There are also two pointless moments on the album; both interludes which are the only resemblance to their early days with their pretentious titles, making their presence known at the most awkward moments. Septentrional which I'm not even going to try and pronounce kills the flow after one of the albums best songs and then lags into the audacious Blood Burner. The second Occidental makes putrid attempts to try and distance itself from the former, but hilariously fails with Cory speaking in the most arrogant of ways coupled with unnecessary clapping and stomping which completely devastates the mood of the album.

Aside from these small complaints this is Norma Jean’s most consistent album to date. They have finally figured out how to mold ridiculously catchy anthems like A Media Friendly Turn For the Worse around their sporadic music and it pays out the dividends each time. When Cory slips in the line “Blood is thicker than water, but which one did you drink?” shivers crawl up my spine escorted along with their temper tantrum to end the track. The People That Surround You On A Regular Basis has a sexy riff that off sets Cory’s interspersed vocals and it creates a beautiful marriage of melody and heaviness. Deathbed Atheist feels like an stab at A Small Spark vs. A Great Forest with its tepid intro bringing the calm before the storm, but one can’t help that they’ve retread these waters all the way until the bridge where they swim a new creek. Instead of blatant cries of “FIGHT FAIR” the band tries blissful swoons of “This is my nightmare”. This is where veteran’s listeners of Norma Jean can hear the change in sound; becoming softer in areas they’d usually tear down and killing their experimental fortunes which they’ve traded out for predictable heaviness. One wonders if they’re done trying to take the helms of the genre and just stick to what they know how to do, simply rawk.

Tracks Recommended: The Anthem of the Angry Brides, A Media Friendly Turn for the Worse, The People That Surround You On A Regular Basis. - wtf is up with these song titles?

Hangover cure

So as the weekend finally started, its time to blow off some steam, get drunk, and party hard and not even trying to think of consequences.As for me, I've spend my friday not planning on drinking, but I still managed to get pretty much shitfaced, damn you jegermaister, damn you.
As for now, I'm dealing with a massive hangover, and will post some random hangover cures for those who suffer as well.

. Take 2 aspirins
2. Take 200mg cysteine (available at specialty food stores)
3. Take 600mg vitamin C
4. Take 1 tablet vitamin B-complex
5. Mix the following ingredients together in a blender:
  • 1 banana
  • 1 small can V-8
  • 6 large strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1-2 cups milk (or soy milk), to desired consistency
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • dash of nutmeg
6. Drink it all up.
If necessary, follow up with a dose of Maalox, lots of Gatorade, and bouillon soup for dinner. These ingredients will rehydrate your body, replace essential vitamins and minerals, and help rid your body of some of the toxic byproducts of metabolized alcohol.
For a headache that drugs don't seem to touch, try an icepack or a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a tea towel, 20 minutes on your head, 10 minutes off. There've been lots of hangover remedies over the centuries, from the Assyrian crushed swallows' beaks with myrrh to Rabbit Dropping Tea (though we think that it tastes a little raisin-y). Friends of ours have suggested everything from club soda to the classic Bull's Eye (OJ and a raw egg) to pickle brine straight from the pickle jar. But if you're looking for something substantial that actually prevents vomiting, invest in the necessary pills and keep your blender handy; the Almighty Hangover Emergency Cure, judiciously combined with the wise drinking practices detailed above, is for you.

Ubuntu







Ubuntu is an open source operating system with the intention of supplying an up-to-date, stable operating system for the normal computer user. In addition to stablility Ubuntu try to target ease of use and installation. Ubuntu can be used on almost anything including Desktops, Business PC’s, Notebooks and many others that are able to support x86 CPU or ARM CPUs, this has only been adapted in the 9.04 version.
One standard, but remarkable (because it outdoes Vista) feature of Ubuntu is the Compiz Fusion 3D desktop, which has enables some really cool effects. Of course, for this feature to function you need a 3D accelerated graphics card.
In terms of ease of use, Ubuntu outshines Vista without a doubt. But it is arguably limited when it comes to software. Most applications written for Windows have not been ported with Linux, and therefore you may not be able to get your favourite programs running on Ubuntu. However, I don’t think this is much of a problem, as there is a whole world of open source out there, which sometimes provide even better functionality.
An ideal alternative is VMware. They have created a server version of their software which is free. It essentially allows you to run multiple operating systems at the same time, by creating a virtual machine. So, you could have Vista and Ubuntu running at the same time, which can improve efficiency greatly, if you have to use both OS’.

Song of the week



Posting this awesome song (which most of you probably wont even like)
here are the lyrics:
Wash it down the drain, down the drain
Wash your smile down
YEAH!!!
Wash it down the drain
PLEASE!!!
Like it or not this is what fuel our obsessions (or insurgents?)
I'm always dreaming(?), never stray far from the path.

Everything was taught to me(?)
But what am I supposed to say?
What am I supposed to say?
I'm sorry I guess I forgot
You think you can kill me again?
Guess I don't remember

What am I supposed to think?
What am I supposed to think?
What am I supposed to feel?
What am I supposed to feel?

There's no feeling in this place.
The echoes of the past speak louder than
Any voice I hear right now.
Don't you ever try to be more than you were destined for
Or anything worth fighting for
Don't you ever try to be more than you were destined for
Or anything worth fighting for
There's no feeling in this place
There's no feeling in this place
Feeling in this place

What did you expect?
That we were nearly home, that we would never leave
What did you expect, that we would never leave home?
That we would never leave, that we would never leave
That we would never leave, that we would never leave
What did you expect from us, we're murderers
Murderers and liars and rapists and thieves
You should never put your trust in any of us
There is nothing to gain from this interference

Don't you ever try to be more than you were destined for
Or anything worth fighting for
There's no feeling in this place
The past is louder than anything I hear right now
The past is louder than anything I hear right now

Minecraft, epic game



Minecraft is a new sensation to hit the indie gaming scene. It’s not a very high-end graphics game, but that isn’t a necessary ingredient to make a game so endlessly entertaining, or crack-like. The amazing person behind Minecraft, yes person, is just one guy. Markus Persson or Notch as he goes by online – developed the whole game by himself. Now sitting at over 100,000 users who have actually purchased the game for 10 euros a pop, he’s made a pretty penny – which is an accomplishment in itself. There’s a reason why, too.

There’s currently a few different “versions” of Minecraft. There’s a Classic and Alpha version and two different modes of play:

True nightmares, trust me. You will hate them.

free-building or “Creative” and Survival. Currently the Alpha only has Survival available, and that’s what I played and will be referring to through-out.

Minecraft is a sandbox-like game where you control one little guy thrown in a huge world where basically everything in your environment is destructible. You can cut down trees, dig a huge cavern into a mountain, divert a river – whatever. You have to use different tools to best interact with the environment around you, and everything you use or make is created through harvesting the raw materials of the land. So if you need an Iron pick-axe, you’re going to have to mine some iron out of a mountain first. So being free to create whatever you want, you can make elaborate mine-shafts, a roller coaster, a huge tower, a castle, whatever you want. But keep in mind, you’re only going to want to be outside during the day-time, as when the night falls – horrible things are out to get you.

Once the sun sets, you have to survive. Building a shelter inside a mountain, a house, or a tower of some sort is the best way to ensure you remain safe. At night Skeletons, Zombies, giant Spiders, all kinds of horrible things are out for your pixelated blood. Each enemy has unique attacks as well: the Skeletons shoot arrows, Zombies are creepy, spiders jump at you, etc. Also, another enemy you will quickly grow accustom to is the Creeper, a green looking weirdo that makes a lit fuse noise when he’s near you. If you don’t keep him at a distance, he’ll go kaboom and destroy large amounts of your home or wherever he was standing, and these fun little buddies will come at you during the sun as well. When the sun raises, the undead burn up (literally) and spiders become docile unless you smack them. It’s all quite fun, as you get an intense sense of urgency as the sun begins to fall behind the horizon line and you know things are out to get you.

"Look Mom, I built a dungeon!"

Whether building is your thing or not, there’s plenty to do. Besides harvesting resources to conquer the land and build yourself some nice things, you can explore to your hearts desire. The world is roughly larger then our own actual Earth, so there’s plenty of things out there to find. Digging into caves, mountains, or even just the ground can yield you stumbling across dungeons with treasure to be found, as well as terrible spawning points breeding out monsters lusting for your death. On top of that – it’s EXTREMELY easy to get lost. Which brings me to my next point…

You WILL get lost. Getting lost is inevitable. As there is no map, you can only use land-masses as visual markers for so long before you either get lost in your own mineshaft or in the wilderness exploring. I’ve tended to build huge towers with torches on large landmasses so if worse comes to worse, I can attempt to catch a glimpse of their light at night-time from another high point. But alas, even with these types of precautions, if you aren’t extremely careful you will get lost. A few things I’ve learned is that when digging caves, just make sure to use torches on side of the wall as you progress and then you can easily just follow them back up on you’re way out. Also, the towers I mentioned early, or leaving torches or other land-marks does help to a certain degree when you’re just exploring a certain area, but as soon as you start to trek out – beware. Getting lost is also part of the fun, because it doesn’t take long to find a vast new and uncharted territory to explore.

Unfortunately death is a bummer in the world of Minecraft, but of course that just all adds to the survivalist nature of the game. When you die, you drop all your goods and they will vanish if you don’t retrieve them quick enough. If you don’t remember where you were or you were lost, you can probably forget about it. This can be bad, but you can build storage – so if you have back up goods in your safe haven, it might not be too terrible a loss. It seems you spawn back at your original spawn-point each time, so that is a nice perk if your home is near your spawn-point.

I picked up this baby a few days ago, and I haven’t been able to put it down since. There are some moments where my gamer rage is boiling inside of me after I die miles and miles away from home and curse words are bound to fly, or when I come across an underground lava vent when digging a cave, or being blown away by a creeper – but these joys are a welcome hardship in a game that gives you a true feeling of being involved in an immerse and large world where you can truly build whatever you want, if you can stay alive that is. A talented guy in the Reddit community already re-created the Pirate Bay Minecraft style. Oh, and did I mention there’s Multiplayer as well? Yeah, I haven’t even touched that yet.

The possibilities truly are endless, especially as Notch continues to update the game vigorously. On top of that, the community is great – There’s so many youtube videos out there already, and their forums are already bursting with community. You can pick it up at their official site, for 10 Euros or roughly $13 USD. Or hell – you don’t even have to buy it, you can try the free version online in your browser using Java, so give it a shot! Also, if you do dive in, this Wiki is a GREAT resource. The game is available for PC, Mac, or Linux even. Amazing! Happy hunting, and remember – Creepers are bastards.

Album Review of the week

THIS IS HELL-SUNDOWNING



If you're looking for something groundbreaking new, you might as well stop reading now. If there is one thing This Is Hell from Long Island, New York are not, then it's innovative. If you're looking for honest music, hat is powerfull and to the point, should risk a look and listen with this band. This five piece is devoted to Hardcore, and even if they do not reinvent the wheel, you can find a very emotional and powerful interpretation of the genre.

This starts with the sound of the album. The production sounds very unpolished and rough, overall the sound reminds of the last Gallows record. In a way, the album has the flair of a local punk band, as if you're listening to your local heroes from the youth center around the corner. And this is meant in the most positive way. This is one of the reasons that it does not matter that much that the riffs of Rick Jiminez and Chris Reynolds sound quite similar in rapid succession. The main construct of Here Come The Rains and The Polygraph Cheaters are really similar, which is noticed especially after repeated listens. This lack in variety is made up with a lot of energy and power that the songs present. The rythm section with Dan Bourke and Jhonny Moore pushes forward all the time, and gives more relaxed instrumentals like 8/27/05 a very dense atmosphere. It all comes together with singer Travis Reilly, who complements if perfectly with his ongoing pissed sounding vocals, supported by the typical Comeback Kid-singalongs featuring a thousend men as it seems.

What more is there to say? As a whole, the album can impress. With the Hardcore in the wake of acts like Modern Life Is War and American Nightmare, This Is Hell can land some good hits. In about thirty minutes play time the listener get's a good demonstration how Hardcore should sound: energetic, powerful, honest and close to the audience. When the songs display a clear singalong character, like the single The Polygraph Cheaters, what should go wrong then? Maybe that's the reason why Converge frontman Jacob Bannon designed the cover for this one. If you're looking for a really solid Hardcore-record, get this one.

This is probably the top track from this album, worth a listen for every hardcore fan

Such shame they arent together anymore

Personal favorite album






I abhor the term “concept album.” What had its birth in the overindulgence of `70s arena rock has become the de facto term for what a band makes when they “mature.” Sure, there are artists in the past few years that have actually made albums that tell a coherent story or stick closely to a theme, such as Cursive’s excellent Happy Hollow, but for the most part bands misappropriate the term, like on Say Anything’s In Defense of the Genre. I’m sorry, but if the concept is songs about your life, it’s not really a concept album. Furthermore, if a band actually does succeed at sticking with an idea, it might miss the mark entirely. For an example of this, check out some of the wordy and awkward “only there to tell the story” lyrics and the overwhelming amount of musical filler on Boys Night Out’s concept attempt, Trainwreck.

Upon initial inspection of Defeater’s debut full-length, Travels, the band seems to avoid most of the trappings I’ve just laid out about the concept album. Through a nicely economical length of 11 songs in under 35 minutes, the band tells a chronological story set to a driving and desperate hardcore style, much in the vein of Modern Life Is War and Verse. While the MLIW comparison is obvious and will continue to be discussed by others, this feels more like the next step down the path that band began paving before their untimely demise than a straight rip. What set apart MLIW from its contemporaries was their narrative style and tension-building presence, and this is exactly the foundation that Defeater takes and runs with.

What will interest most people initially about this album is, of course, the story. Following a character from birth in 1945 until his death, the opening lyrics set the dark tone to follow: “Unwanted from his first breath, a mother’s blessing born, a father’s burden worn.” From here the lyrics continue in a third-person narrative as we witness the child growing up in a string of unpleasant situations over the span of three songs. The fourth track, “Forgiver Forgetter” features the protagonist at 17 experiencing the turning point that shapes the rest of the story and sets him out on the album’s namesake, Travels. Tracks 5-9 follow him through his road life before the album’s finale takes him back home to confront what he left behind. Individually, the lyrics work and avoid storytelling clich├ę. Writing songs that coherently and chronologically tell a story cannot be an easy feat and when taken as a whole, the tale on Travels is raw and moving.

Within the narrative arch, the band sticks to their basic musical approach but takes a nice and wholly appreciated diversion in the middle of the record. During the track “Prophet in Plain Clothes,” the lyrics find the protagonist walking through a town where he sees a vagrant playing a guitar and singing on a street corner. The song fades out with the lyrics “'Home is never home,’ said the prophet in plain clothes as he strummed his guitar, and he screamed, and he sang…” before it fades into the actual song the bum is singing. It’s a short acoustic folk song that reminds me of Bright Eyes, but serves as a good respite from an otherwise overpowering record.

Sonically, the band is muscular and unrelenting. While the recent trend for bands in this style has been to relax into a looser and more organic sound, Defeater takes the opposite approach and relies heavily on their technical musicianship and tight playing. However, even with everything exact at all times, it doesn’t lose its emotional impact. Also worth noting is the drum performance by Andy Reitz. While sticking to the songs he still manages to add quite of bit of flash that should excite drum geeks everywhere.

Of course, with anything there are imperfections. Defeater’s overall sound is often not easy to digest and requires patience and stamina on the part of the listener. There do exist a few hooks on this record but they are subtle and certainly don’t expose themselves upon first listening. In addition, the album sounds like two long songs separated by the aforementioned acoustic interlude, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing since it is telling a story.

While I am usually not exited by the term “concept album” it is clear that Defeater succeeded with this one. It successfully leaves behind the clich├ęs of heavy music and concept album overindulgence and in many ways hits a new artistic peak for hardcore.


Review taken from punknews, and I can easily say this is probably my top album favorite album of 2010, eventhough it was released in 2008

getting inked next week

Gonna get my bday gift, a tattoo somewhere on my leg, hopefully it wont hurt too much and im pretty much excited.

Best gig I went to in 2010

Torchlight 2 announced!


Sleeper hit Torchlight is set to receive its first sequel next spring. At this rate, the dungeon-crawling digital distribution darling may release its third entry before Diablo 3 even begins to stir from its long development slumber.

The big change this time out for the dungeon crawler will be online co-op. Runic Games notes that the game will feature a free peer-to-peer matchmaking service to "meet new players of a similar level and interest." And this time around, the world will include "expansive" randomized outdoor environments -- don't worry, the dungeons are still there -- along with "random instanced and persistent dungeons." Expect new monsters, weather effects, a new story and LOOT!

Torchlight 2
will be playable at GamesCom later this month in Germany and at PAX Prime (Seattle) in September. The game will "initially" launch as a downloadable title in Spring 2011

this is gonna be epic, hopefully wont be as repetative as the first torchlight.

turned 21
