PostSubject: The Song of the...damn. It's been awhile. Just listen why dont you (VOTE TWICE!!!)   Tue Oct 12, 2010 11:02 pm

Ok kiddies....yes, i use that vernacular, now that song of the Day, Week, DYSFUNCTIONAL relationship that i have with this ongoing thread. I think my last post was somewhere in the neighborhood of 6-7 months ago. So here goes nothing!

The awesome "band" i guess you could call it that i have to showcase for you kiddies today is a man by the name of Cloudkicker. Well, obviously that's not his real name. Ben Sharp, although he isnt well known or documented enough to go by that. He also makes ambient music (i may save that for a later date) under the name B.M. Sharp. All of his current work can be found online and for free. In fact, i read his myspace where he says that he "fully support the re hosting of this and all releases on torrent and file sharing sites like megaupload".
B.M. Sharp, or Ben, makes up Cloudkicker. Cloudkicker is a sort of a progressive ambient djenty project full of WIN AND AWESOME. The album Beacons is best listened to in one sitting.



As most instrumental music seems to go these days, Beacons is not chock full of mindless technical wankery or flighty fast solos. Instead, Beacons is more of a thinking mans' type of instrumental music. It seems dark, but not in a Black Ambient sense, and it seems powerful, but not in a Death Metal sense. Beacons is more of an experience. It feels (to me at least) like im out at sea on a large vessel and we run into a storm. The storm is violent and hectic and everything must be done quickly, but precisely. Eventually the storm passes and the crew (as well as myself) sail to calmer waters and gaze off into the distance where not a word is exchanged about what happened.

Yeah, mega lame and cheesy sounding....but instrumental metal has allowed me to interpret chords, harmonies, and melodies without the need of a vocalist to tell the "story" of a song.


Blah blah blah Brute. Everyone, get this. I really dont think this has a "oh, you like X so you'll like Cloudkicker". Just do me a favor, get the album here:
http://cloudkicker.bandcamp.com/album/beacons



Until next time, fellow headbangers

axe, please, stop talking like that. there were several reasons your post got deleted
1) the thread was a BBCcodde practice. i cant type the codes in notepad then host them in Firefox, since that runs on html.
2) i wrote down "test" and you wrote something like " i like this too". thast is a USELESS post and was obviously pointless.
3) you always take the offensive and assume when i delete a post, im attacking the user. WRONG! i delete stuff cuse i dont think it is post worthy. i dont care if you post it, byd, or lor, or jakey234 (whatever)

SO PLEASE! STOP taking the offensive. im getting tired of it. especially the language. i curse alot and often, but when someone starts to take an offensive argument and starts to curse, it upsets me.

and you being sad about me deleting your "post" is no reason for not looking at a COMPLETED thread.

are we cool bro-montana?

Really?

Here, maybe you are confused

Warmen
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XlNbQv_Rg4

Cloudkicker
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90j3HJhNIiY&feature=related


please, take note that im not trying to be rude, but i see 0% similarties between the two bands. cloudkicker is from the states, plays by himself, plays instrumental music, and uses a guitar. warmen arnt from the US, plays power metal, and uses keyboards (rather well).


I guess the one similarity they both have is the fact they both play instrumental (warmen does have Amadeus quotes occasionally)
But i get the sense that Warmen plays instrumental for the fact that they are showcasing their talent and making cool sounds. I think Cloudkicker is expressing a feeling or ideas to some degree.

Another big difference is speed. alot of warmen songs are very fast. fast is fun, and im sure fast can convey meaning in instrumental metal, but i dont think warmen SET OUT to make an instrumental album, they made an album that showcased some heavy riffs and the keyboard work of that dude from CoB


Agree/Disagree? Byd? Anybody?

well, i just cant read that.

"You totally deleted my post. Jackass. Anyway I'll definitely check this out tomorrow (or later today I guess). I just got off work so yeah, after I wake up"

i mean, if you put "lol" or "jk", or "haha" i would have discredited it.
but you explicitly called me a jackass. i dont see any of the other admins or mods acting this.....nonchalantly

deep down i know you are joking....but everytime i question that, i lose a small bit of respect for you. please dont put me in that situation


wow, im in a dark mood today

After listening to one song I'm deciding that I'll just listen to Blooted Science because, sorry to say, that fucking blows IMO and I can't stand to listen to another song.

I was hoping for some industrial-like ambient sounding music.

but blotted science is all over the place and technical and frenetic. i like beacons becuase it seems to have an overall feel and theme. (quick side-bar, i listened to Trist's Hin today) i feel like cloudkicker uses the overall ideas of ambient styles of music and tries to apply it to a more progressive style of music...

It might also be because I'm really, REALLY not in the mood for progressive metal right now Razz

oh, i definitely have feelings like that. like, i was in a bad mood today and feeling really lost, so thats why i played Hin....other days i would have gotten 2 minutes in and given up. i went 48 minutes in before i had to leave.


do me a favor and dont vote, but come back another time when you are in the mood (regardless of time) and then re-evaluate it.
thanks

I haven't listened to any metal in the past couple of days, which is rare. Mostly just 60s-70s stuff and hipster music.
