    There's a massive group of teenagers online who are outraged / confused that Taylor Swift's now album (which doesnt suck but isnt great) isn't #1 on the chart because of Tool - who they have obviously never heard of. Its actually funny af to see.

    Just having a look at the ratings for eech track on FI:


    Fear Inoculum - 3.7
    Pneuma - 3.9
    Invincible - 3.8
    Descending - 4.0
    Culling Voices - 3.6
    Chocolate Chip Trip - 3.3
    7empest - 4.1

    Having only listened to a few of the tracks so far I agree that CCT is average at best, FI is good without being great and 7empest is close to song of the year for me, and deserves to be the highest rated song on the album.

    I haven't listened to Pneuma or Descending yet so will probably do that tonight now that I've seen the ratings here.

    After listening to 7empest a few times now, yeah, that is the TOOLest thing in the history of TOOL. Brilliant.

    Completely unrelated to music but is it just me or has SI white washed his avatar compared to Filth or is it just my monitor ? It's the same guy right ?

    Tool Vs Korn

    Tool - can see why it took 13 years mixing all those 10+ minute songs, over indulgent, not worth the wait, 1-2 tracks. Not an album I'd put on end to end.

    Korn - odd thumper, a bit lighter but same sound, easy listening, will make a good car album. Shits all over the Tool release.

    There I said it.

    That's actually pretty weird, both taken from the same source.

    I'm a casual fan. I own quite a few of their albums but they were never a band I was obsessed with. My fav by far is Night is the New Day, that record is unbelievable, nothing else they have done comes close to that for me. Great Cold Distance, is second best and gets somewhat close.

    Speaking of Tool, I was blown away by Fear Inoculum. I'd say it's become my second favourite Tool album behind Aenima. I was surprised that after such a long time they could come up with this. Did not expect it at all.

    Also Korn, The Nothing is very good too. It's not classic Korn, but it has more classic elements and their best album since probably The Untouchables, maybe even Issues. It's really really enjoyable.

    An old fave, old school, but still 'hooky'

    Seeing Jesus Christ Pose on RAGE late one night is what got me into Soundgarden. But I think Room a Thousand Years Wide is my favourite off BadMotorFinger.

    Me and a mate have a forever memory from late one night, 17yo old watching rage and Soundgardens clip for Blackhole sun came on, we were smashed and a few others were passed out, slewn across the couches, but me and Grant were soldiering on - that song/clip sticks so strong in our memories as though it was some sort of apocalyptic moment haha.

    Jesus Christ Pose shows what an incredible vocalist Chris was. Slaves and Bulldozers another one.

    I had so many drunken nights watching Rage through the early hours of the morning. So good.

    Have been getting into a heap of post hardcore/emo bands the last few months. Thursday/Alexisonfire/Trial Kennedy/A Day To Remember/Brand New/Boysetsfire/Thrice...

    Feels like I discredited an entire Metal genre after hearing just a couple of poppy singles from the likes of Good Charlotte and AFI. Potentially also because the stereotypical fan of this lot back then was not necessarily reflective of the bands themselves.

    Give the following a listen, in no order: Memphis May Fire, Bring me the horizon, Amity affliction, bullet for my valentine (who I'm sure you've listened to), Asking Alexandria

    What we could do is start a NRLFF playlist on Spotify

    Yeah, haha, started listening to BFMV and BMTH back in the late Noughties.  

    Can't get into The Amity Affliction, even though they are from Gympie Very Happy .  Funnily enough, my most Bogan mate, Col, is into them, and he only normally listens to Thrash usually, Slayer/Megadeth etc.  He also owns a heap of rifles, a couple of quad bikes, and a Ned Kelly T Shirt; which makes me feel close minded about my choices...

    Asking Alexandria is the exact type of band I'm talking about; I probably would have always loved them, but never gave them a chance.  Never heard of Memphis May Fire, which is very encouraging!

    Norma Jean is another post hardcore band that I've found lately.  One of those YouTube recommendations that kept popping up for years when I am listening to other stuff, but only gave them a crack last year.  Their album Meridional got me in, but Polar Similar is the Critic's choice and Wrongdoers seems to be the fans favourite.

    Wow.. Norma Jean, there is a band id forgotten. Used to thrash their first album. Might have to chuck it on.


    Listening to Turnstile a lot lately (the 2018 album and latest singles)
