mediocrity

couple of days back, while surfing through channels, i stopped on VH1. My ears found that song much familiar, but not the voice !! I went back and voila !! it was “I want to know what love is” but wait, WTF, Mariah Carey singing it !!

My question is why ? Why a Pop, RnB, hip-hop singer would sing a “all time hit” number !? If you can’t appreciate it, then don’t insult it either !! This shows how such genre and their artists are fucking “sell outs”.

Even mainstream is all “sell out”. When searching this on youtube..This is what i found

Even youtube !! grrrr

Now, keeping that in mind, that you are {yess, you !} a third party reader and you don’t know any of these..here i put both videos and leave it upto you for the judgment

legacy

Although, I’m too late to write review for the gig. But i must say that it was a kickass show after a long time. Crowd was also awesome, lesser and better. Indeed a quality crowd !! The energy level among people was awesome, you can feel the heat. Moreover there was a sexy, curvy and hot announcer was on stage too !! It was kinda funny that everyone was trying to grab her attention ! Even those who didn’t headbanged while the band is performing, went to the first row while that chick was announcing !! 😛


Due to a conference I was late to the venue, so I had almost missed the first band, Scaremonger from Jaipur, but i heard their last couple of song. They were nice, almost same as what they were, when played last time !! vocals were not audible at all. Either vocalist should increase the intensity of vocals, else the vocals should kept at higher volume !!


Then, came Chronic Phobia, previously thrash but emerged as a Metal band in general !! They were a six piece band. The bassist Pratika was an eye-catching, not because she was hot and curvy but she was an excellent player. They played their original compositions. It was nice to headbang and they played worth !! The drumming pattern for 3-4 songs were little weird and changing every now and then. That is not the problem, as a matter of fact i personally adore them for doing so !! Vocals sounded perfect and vocalist was actually very intellectual. I remember, him pushing me for the mosh and I drag him in for the mosh itself. All n all it was fun !!


Spiked Crib

These guys were insane. At first I marked that bassist was missing, but then yeah, RIP Vincy {aka beast}. These guys sounded total black/goth metal. The riffs were totally black metal-ish and vocals sounded extreme black metal at couple of points. Their original, Laments of the beast, which was a tribute song to Vincent was very ambient and they succeed to create depressive ambiance. Kudos to Spiked Crib for that..They played almost originals through out, i guess they played “fear of the dark” IM cover {correct me if i’m wrong, coz i was away for water that time} but they tured that song into a true BM sounding song. Again kudos to them !! Yess, i had seen them last year too. But this year they were more tight, louder, better and bigger. You were missed Vincy !!


I guess the show ended up over here for most of the crowd. Couple of people were excited about the guitar duel. {ok ! stop laughing now 😛 } but nothing as such happened. Raining blood, one of my favorite mosh material song, was being played {raped}. Not a single note was audible from the guitars. Neither the guitarist could catch up the speed as Kerry does !! Better luck next time folks, practice hard mates !!


That’s it from my side, by this i didn’t sound mean or rude to any of you people. Take this as a constructive criticism and hope to see you play better and louder next time !!

yeah, that’s me

pearls of wisdom

"Apparently people don't like the truth, but I do like it; I like it because it upsets a lot of people. If you show them enough times that their arguments are bullshit, then maybe just once, one of them will say, 'Oh! Wait a minute - I was wrong.' I live for that happening. Rare, I assure you."

Keep an eye
