I remember the first time I heard The Locust, and going through that wierd mishmash of feelings: "This is wierd, uncomfrtable, nasty music... But it's fucking fantastic!"

Must be a nice one, then. blush.gif

I'm surprised no one else here likes classical film scores, as I do. unsure.gif

Well it's the same as with any genre of music. Some people like it, some people don't. Hell, until Spann bumbled in here, wallabyeyes and I were the only people on this entire message board that dug on noise. I'm still one of only a small handful of people I can think of that enjoy listening to spazzy hardcore like the Locust, Melt-Banana or Daughters. I don't listen to film scores because I don't enjoy the aural experience without the visuals to go with it. Though I do enjoy listening to the soundtracks from the first two Metal Gear Solid games.

You should try a Williams score sometimes, then; they're always really exquisite. happy.gif

actually, now that you mention it... the Ravenous soundtrack is one of my most played CDs. (thats not classical as such but it is a score) and I've forever been trying to score a copy of the brahm stokers dracula score.

Heccubus, you should meet my friends. We're all pretty big math/spazz/grind fans. However, alot of people I know who are into more conventional metal (and even stuff like Dillinger Escape Plan) still turn their noses up when I put on some Passenger of Shit or Ladyscraper.

Melt Banana never EVER play over here though.

As far as scores go - The Final Fantasy VII score is phenomenal, as is Secret of Mana's. Both done by Nobuo Uematsu, as far as I know.

I like Danny Elfman. That's about it. It's not an area that I really get into.

And Spann, while I do enjoy a bit of that stuff, I'm not that into the genre on the whole. Most of it just strikes me as a bunch of dudes who think they're really out there and different, even though they just sound like yet another Arab On Radar knock-off. It also doesn't help that 90% of these bands appear to have members of Arab On Radar among their ranks. tongue.gif

Arab On Radar are (or rather, were) a spazzy punk band with lyrical content that many would find somewhat uncomfortable to listen to. It works out well, for that reason, that you can rarely ever understand what they were saying.
They broke up a few years back, and now it seems that every time I hear about a new band that cites AoR as an influence, there's a member OF AoR IN THAT BAND.

Well okay, there's only three bands that I know of:
-Made In Mexico (you may have heard them in a little game called Guitar Hero II. They suck out loud.)
-The Chinese Stars
-Athletic Automaton

Ah. So they each have members from that band, yet they all rip it off? huh.gif

My point was that a lot of bands similar to The Locust or Melt-Banana strike me as being pathetic Arab On Radar knock-offs. I then followed that with a joke about how I seem to see members of Arab On Radar popping up in a lot of similar bands nowadays. The Chinese Stars, for instance, I mistook for being Arab On Radar the first time I heard them. I had no idea that it was a "different" band. They sounded exactly the same. Made in Mexico, as I said, just plain suck. There's no redeeming value to their music whatsoever. And Athletic Automaton, I believe, are instrumental. I don't remember that well and I'm far too lazy to see if I still have any of their stuff kicking around.

Just a question, Heccubus - What do you think of The Locust's various side projects (Holy Molar, Head Wound City, Cattle Decapitation etc)?

As a rule, for me to enjoy that sorta thing there does need to be a special something, and I agree, everyone sounds like a bad AoR rip-off - and I don't really like AoR.

However, I could not be more excited about the new Dillinger Escape Plan and Between the Buried and me albums this year.
