I have barely written about one of my favorite things in the world. Music is a huge part of my life, and I’m always hungry for new bands and albums. Here are some of the records I’ve been listening lately:
Puzzle – Biffy Clyro
I’ve rediscovered this album while driving. Hadn’t paid too much attention to the band for years, but this record from 2007 is an excellent demonstration of what this trio can do. Their sound is what you could expect from a modern rock band, with influences that go from pop to metal. But the proggy touches are what make of this album something different.
Sonic Highways – Foo Fighters
I know Nirvana fans won’t like this, but for me Foo Fighters is Dave Grohl’s good band. Sure, Nirvana has some excellent and iconic songs, but there’s not a single album of their discography that I think is worth listening in full. On the other hand, Foo Fighters has several of those, demonstrating a laudable capacity to always delivery high quality music. Sonic Highways is, as the previous Wasting Light, and excellent album.
Nightbringers – The Black Dahlia Murder
Released last 6th of October, Nightbringers is a reminder of how good TBDM are. Probably the best and most consistent melodic (or so they say) death metal band. Sure, they have their formula, but they always deliver. This album had me since minute one, and I think is the first time in my life a pre-order a music album. From the first song to the last, Nightbringers is an extremely direct and powerful record. Half an hour of music (or noise if you wanna think that way) that it’s worth every dime I paid for it.
