This one is almost lacking ambient elements, and hyper-focused on the kicks, somehow exciting [if one submits to the moment] and very boring and painful [succumbing one's concentration on simple, repetitive stimuli] at the same time. Very repressed work. So, I apologize for posting this one [there are certainly better works within this genre]:

This one's a bit different, the beats are more subtle, being overshadowed by the sub-bass which is strangely addictive, and the 'signal-like' sounds in the transitional phase is very welcoming:

Similar, but more focused, with a nice Eastern-touch, quite enjoyable actually:

I can't stop listening to stuff; I'm really stressed out and it's the only thing that helps. Listen to the last one; I know the guys. They're good, they play at a bar I hang out at all the time.
I'm not judging, I am observing.

So it seems Nada may be worth checking out as I already enjoy The Calling (Mk II) and this is pretty good, or is it just the trance effect of the percussion?
Nada! is very good. I like all their early, post-punk stuff. Other good post-punk bands: Soviet Soviet (already posted here), Motorama (they came to Buenos Aires early this year; I was there. I got to talk to them when they came out, because there were so few people).

Three languages in one song and still sounds good.

I still can't believe whatcd was shut down..

This one, on the other-hand, doesn't cause distraction or divert your attention obtrusively (causing the previously mentioned 'jolt'), and the beats are actually rather pleasant and relaxed, mild pleasure . . .

Nice

Big up for Gourmet beats



I quite like this one: Beneath the Clay R.I.P.

A friend of mine and I are working through some old-timey cyber-punk/sci-fi shows and just finished up gits: sac for the first time in... about ten years. I'd forgotten how much I liked 'Lithium Flower,' even if some of the lyrics are odd. I'm told my drunken rendition of it is pretty good. :D I like the op a lot as well, I just can't sing it.

The new movie looks.... iffy. I'm scared.

Maybe? Generally I find that vocals detract from the music. Though decent instrumentals without vocals are hard to come by.

Cool song, whammy bar/half tones galore ; ). Definitely both share some focus on the virtuosity.

The main emotive/attention lead in Surge is the guitar/synth pair, for the dragonforce they want vocals to convey emotions and guitars are a melodic fill and backup roles.

TBH, I actually rarely listen to the lyrics of a song (unless its rap). I still want the overall presentation of the lyrics to be pleasing to the ear, however.

I have always not been good at hearing the actual words of a song. I suppose that makes me really really weird.

I suppose it's natural to view lyrics not only as words but also as a melodic or sometimes rhythmic instrument which it is. Some people like the broad tonal existence and relatability that vocals provide.

I love vocals with minimalist instrumentation, but when instrumentals get robust vocals are very all over the place and overbearing, not to mention that vocalists skills and technique often doesn't go hand in hand with the skills or profiles of other band members. Broad presence in a sense that individual instrument roles like lead guitar or violins / brass / drums occupy their own tone ranges and are often made to interplay or constructively interfere, vocals can do that too, depends on the focus and composition, but often it leads to covering what other parts are doing. Anyway, the broader the presence the bigger the responsibility.

This song I just posted is hilariously divisive, just a moment ago someone I know said that he hates the synth in it and how it covers the orchestra and does its job and it should instead have a bigger and louder orchestral presence. I somewhat agreed that they made the electronic parts too loud there.

There was a lot going on in the song, yes. I guess I like more melodic easier listening music.
