In case some of you have not heard about MOTHER LOVE BONE, this was a very good band back in the early days, more specifically active between 1988 to 1990, hailing from Seattle, Washington, US.
And they only released one album, as well a compilation and one EP, Shine. They are notable for their late vocalist, Andrew Wood, and for Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament who later formed Pearl Jam.
Genre would be a mix of GRUNGE, Alternative METAL, Funk ROCK, Glam Punk. Though, more of Alt Rock/Metal.
The band consisted of Andrew Wood (vocals, keyboards), Bruce Fairweather (guitar), Stone Gossard (guitar), Jeff Ament (bass) and Greg Gilmore (drums). As mentioned above, the band released only one full length album, “Apple” (1990). The band then disbanded in 1990 after Wood died in a coma caused by a heroin overdose. Ament and Gossard later formed Temple of the Dog and Pearl Jam.
its funny, as soon as riff started I guessed it was an AC/DC song.
Being Australian myself I don't hear an accent. Okay, maybe a little.
I never took any notice of AC/DC, they were just sort of there. I don't classify them as heavy metal, more rock. I know others see it different.
Its a long way to the shops if you want a sausage roll
They were just another Australian band. We had plenty.
I'm a fan and have seen them several times.
2nd loudest band I have ever seen in concert. For those about to rock tour Omni Atlanta 1982.
Nobody beats Ted Nugent for loudest concert but his politics suck.
I saw AC/DC in the 1990's but my memory of where they played doesn't match its probable location. I have a memory of an outside venue but the only place they played in the city for 14 years was inside. I do remember we left before end, can only listen to so many Angus Young 10 minute guitar solos per song.
Given most concerts I saw in the early 90's we would try to get deafened, I don't know what loudest I saw was. MIght have been The Angels as we saw them about 9 times since they were an Aust band who never escaped the island.
One sad coindence about all 3 bands I showed is their original lead singers are all dead.
I'm with you on that one.
Never liked any of their solo adventures. Maybe I was expecting the greatness they were as a band to flow over or something?
But as one of my favorite bands here we go. Wore out many Quadraphonic versions of this album.
i only have 41 Pink Floyd albums, I don't have all the box sets or the latest ones as you can only have so many copies of the same songs. Same reason I don't bother with all the Anthrax live albums. Enough already
We all have our own personal taste in music.
If everybody liked the same thing it becomes monotonous and boring.
I listen to many different eras,genre,styles of music.
Except Rap/Thug Rap. never understood it. I guess I was never angry or ????? to relate.
Same with a lot of the Thrash Metal bands. I can appreciate their musical talents, but not so much their music.
I have no words to describe this underground Pagan/FOLK BLACK METAL band from Finland. Their music is so addictive. They go by the name:Havukruunu, and the lyrics are also in FINNISH, so unless you know finnish you won't get the full gist of the songs/tracks (I know a bit of Finnish though), but music is not just about LYRICS.
It's more about appreciation, respect, and passion. The band's name translation would be : "Crown Of Thorns !" Or, Coniferous Crown.
They also don't have that stereotypical Black Metal genre's looks, and the lyrical themes. Nope, the lyrics instead deal with loneliness, depression/sadness, Finnish history of Paganism, Wintry weather of Finland. Havukruunu are clearly big fans of 'Bathory' and 'Immortal'. Their music features heavy use of Viking choirs and driving riffs, generating an icy yet dramatic atmosphere.
Many black metal diehards at some point in the last few years have sung the praises of this Finnish pagan black metal outfit, receiving an amount of hype on the same level as bands like Misþyrming from Iceland, and the polish outfit Mgła and for a very good reason.
Havukruunu continues the well stablished tradition of Finnish black metal, sorrowful melodies and a dark atmosphere and fast riffs, however, where Havukruunu excels is in living up to the “pagan” label and adding unique elements of Finnish FOLK music, classic heavy metal hooks and the ever serendipitous influence of Bathory in the more Viking and pagan epic sense and scale.
