Happy Friday everyone! Right around now is when the winter doldrums reach their peak. Areas close to Lake Michigan should see more than half a foot of snow in the next day, and the UP will get in excess of a foot, because obviously. Looks like cross-country skiing is in the works for me this weekend. What are your weekend plans?
From time to time it's nice to refresh our stale music libraries with a few fresh songs or artists. I always enjoy hearing something a little off the beaten path. We've all heard the Beach Boys, Metallica, Toby Keith, etc. How about your favorite, less-well-known bands? I offer two:
Chaotech: A rather interesting metal outfit out of Helsinki, Finland. They've come out with one EP, €xi$t, and a couple singles. I strongly recommend listening to the EP straight-through in its entirety if you happen to be a headbanger. Tracks "Apparatus of Reason" and "Decreation" are particularly noteworthy (both Soundcloud links).
Barilari: Argentinian rocker. Adrian Barilari was one of the founders of the heavy metal movement in Argentina back in the 80s as a member of the group Rata Blanca. His current solo project is reminiscent of perhaps early-80s Iron Maiden. In addition to "Abuso de Poder" embedded below, I also suggest the track "Algo Magico"
Anyways, given the diversity of tastes on the board, it's pretty likely that if you suggest some of your favorite music (of any type or genre), at least one other poster will appreciate it. Happy listening!
Edit: By the way, a posbang thread isn't a posbang thread unless you posbang people. So posbang away!
