Thanks alot!
It's from an extremely rare cd. Only a handfull of copies made. There's a thread dedicated to the cd here on bts. I started that thread by saying that I did it all, but I wrote that part before I started to include some tracks that was not made by me alone. The cd ("produced" by me) contains 64 tracks made by me and a friend of mine ("Sasquatch"). We used the pc keyboard and a mouse, a midi program called "Music Sculptor", a Soundblaster 32 soundcard, a 486 pc with Windows 3.11 (yeah, it wasn't made "yesterday"). The cd is not for sale (yet anyway
), but you're welcome to download any file linked within that thread. Eventual credits should go to "Hellmutt & Sasquatch". Some good tracks from that cd has not been posted yet. The reason is that they were too long, and the mp3 files would exceed the 2MB limit per file on
Maybe I'll make some more videos later, as it enables me to post longer tracks for uploading to Youtube.

That's pretty cool you only made it using those things. It sounds like it could be on a video game or something. It sounds kind of adventurous and epic lol

Yeah you should make more videos, I think the video you made for the song you posted really suited it and added to it's atmosphere.

Thanks for the link, I'll definitely check the other songs!
Btw, cool names too

Those Mogwai songs sound really good! But I didn't like the video for the song 'Hunted by a Freak'

I totally agree! People should listen to more World music, it's really nice. I like getting cultured like that too lol.

And artists from other countries are good too. One of my favourites is Wilber Pan, he's a Taiwanese singer (although he was born in the US), I like listening to his music, even though I don't know the lyrics. Also some of those J-rock and J-pop bands are interesting too and the visual kei bands.

Also recently I LOVE the music from "The Darjeeling Limited" soundtrack - with music from the Bollywood films of Satyagit Ray and Merchant-Ivory - not to mention all the kick-ass Kinks songs... loll :clwdnc:

Bollywood films always have great music! And they're always filled with so much colour!

The instrumental version is 10 times more awesome and it appears in the film "ocean's Twelve", but Vincent Cassel is so gorgeous in this clip anyway.. haha

Oh so that's the name of the guy who was dancing in front of his car. Lol it was kinda funny

Your band is pretty cool!
I listened to the songs on the music player thing, I like all of them, but I really like 'Arrgh Freebird', 'Massacred My Muse' and 'The Happy Ending'. They're all really awesome though

reply to post by Acidtastic

Lol, they're pretty funny, especially the Tony Blair one, that was freakin hilarious! Love the end bit!!

Haha, thanks so much! I know we're a bit poppy and I suspect ATSers to be more into indie, but I'm glad you dug it.

Its funny, ARGGH Freebird was supposed to be a joke, but it has the best response out of all the songs so far. I guess I need to write more songs about pirates.

Imho, I think it's always good for artists to have a few songs that are funny. And it's always to good to mention pirates, they're just cool

If you aren't Canadian you probably haven't heard of them, but The Tragically Hip. Great music to just throw in the cd player and roadtrip to. The older Albums are better than the newer stuff, but it is all good.

My life with the thrill Kill Kult.

Like a good old fashion tent sermon on ecstasy.

Then there's the Flobots.

Trying to think of more.

Nine Inch Nails popular but not enough in my opinion.

For me, The Chinese Stars (USA), I Killed Pharaoh (UK), Brisa Roche (USA / France), Shocking Blue (Dutch), Lucid 3 (New Zealand) and Rasputina (USA). All brilliant.

Plus, check out blogspot rapidshare sites via Google for these albums from the 1960s - Chrysalis - Definition (1967), The Unspoken Word - Tuesday April 19th (1968) and The Unspoken Word (1970), The Pretty Things - SF Sorrow (1968), Silver Apples - Silver Apples (1968) and Silver Apples - Contact (1969), Saturnalia - Magical Love (1969), Pussy - Pussy Plays (1969), Rust (1969), October Country (1968), The Savage Resurrection (1968), Ars Nova (1968), and the best album of all - SRC (1968). These are the true undiscovered gems, the bands that never quite made it yet were classic in every way with brilliant songwriting and performance ability.

Wow, most of these bands I've never heard of. They seem interesting. I'm definitely gonna check em out.

Here's a few songs from the bands I LOVE

Avenged Sevenfold - I Won't See You Tonight Part 1 - Post-hardcore/Metalcore/Hard Rock(best band ever imo
hehe. I think this song is perfect

Avenged Sevenfold - Betrayed (the song about Dimebad Darrell from Pantera)

Bullet For My Valentine - Tears Don't Fall - Metalcore (this video is actually pretty funny at the end)

Nightwish - Amaranth - Power Metal/Symphonic Metal (LOVE this video)

Nightwish - Bye Bye Beautiful (I absolutely LOVE Marco's vocals in this, freakin awesome)

Arctic Monkeys


posted on Aug, 8 2008 @ 05:57 PM
Arctic Monkeys are cool, they have a good sound.


Oh, btw I made a typo in my post up there ^, it was meant to say Dime"bag" Darrell not Dime"bad" Darrell. My bad


Some good artists I think I should mention are:

Pantera and Papa Roach are pretty good if you're into metal. I only recently discovered them
. AFI are pretty freakin awesome too, but they're punk, alternative if anyone's into that. Korn aren't bad either, love the songs 'Evolution' and 'Word Up'

Oh oh and also I love LOVE the song 'As the World Falls Down' by David Bowie from one of the best movies ever, Labyrinth. This song is probably my favourite. Everyone should listen to it, it's awesome

A great artisit I've not long discovered is David Sylvian, he's a lot like David Bowie, oddly their voices are really similar as well as their looks lol. I love the song he did with Ryuichi Sakamoto 'Forbidden Colours'. I haven't watched the movie it's from, maybe someday. But this song, I could listen to it on repeat and not get sick of it.

Some of my favourite artists and their albums are:

If you haven't heard Nelly Furtado's album Folklore, then you should! One of the best I've ever heard. Much, much better than Loose, which seems a lot more commercial but oh well. Her Whoa, Nelly! album is pretty good too.

Another favourite album of mine is Kevin Max's Stereotype Be. Great to listen to all the way through. I absolutely love the song 'Dead End Moon', when I listen to it, it's so easy to visualise the lyrics and creates a great atmosphere. Stereotype Be kind of has a Gothic/ Medieval feel to it, not in the style of music, but when you're listening to it, you just get that sense, well me anyway. He's a Christian, but that shouldn't be a put off, because his style and his songs are always interesting.

Same goes for Falling Up. They're a Christian band, but the remixes of some of their songs are just so amazing. Easy to get caught up in. Take 'the Islander' for instance, whenever I close my eyes and listen to this song, it's just like "Wow!" Most of the best songs (the remixes) are from the album Exit Lights. Escalates is a good song too. Seriously, their songs, especially the ones from Exit Lights, are really good. Great techno, ambient artistry lol.

Evermore's Dreams is another good album worth listening to. Great artistry, there are so many layers to all of the songs. I always like listening to this album when I'm drawing or making art, it's really inspiring.

Um, and also dc Talk. I grew up in a Christian home, so I've listened to a lot of Christian artists, and I really think some of them don't get the recognition they deserve for their music. One of dc Talk's best albums, for me, is Supernatural, especially the song Red Letters. The start of it just sounds so mystical and beautiful. Dc Talk will always remain one of my favourite ever bands, I just love their music.

And of course tobyMac, he was in dc Talk along with Kevin Max and Michael Tait until they split up. I love tobyMac's second album Welcome to Diverse City. It's a good album. The song 'Ill-M-I' is pretty good (great beat) and 'Diverse City'. The album's mainly rap, hip-hop infused with rock, it's pretty good. The song 'Catchafire (Whoopsi-Daisy)' is pretty rockin, and also 'The Slam'. Although tobyMac's first album is more rock, it's really good as well

Also, I suppose mainly for Christians, Mercy Me are pretty awesome. They have a way of making you feel so much emotion and wonder in their songs. Songs like 'I Can Only Imagine' 'Word of God Speak' 'Here With Me' 'In the Blink of an Eye' and 'Homesick'. Just great music, no wonder they're Grammy Award nominated and Dove Award winning. Just beautiful.

Oh and I cannot forget to mention the Newsboys! Anyone ever heard that song 'Love Liberty Disco'? Man, I have such good memories associated with that song lol. The Newsboys were another Christian band I grew up listening to along with dc Talk and a few others. The Newsboys were pretty cool and fun sounding

Il Divo's Ancora album was amazing! Truly wonderful and inspiring, well, if you're into classical, opera sounding music.

A few years ago I bought the album Bethany Dillon by Bethany Dillon, also a Christian artist. If you ever listen to any song on that album, it should be 'Beautiful', this song is so amazing!! It always makes me cry. The emotion and the lyrics are so powerful.
This album is nice because, it's not too rocky, it's just nice to listen to, very simple.

Ok, I guess that's it, I should stop now lol
