i just turned off Meshuggah's "The Violent Sleep of Reason" so I could watch the trailer to "Thor: Ragnarok".

EDIT
Now I'm listening to "Hydra" by Toto for research.

Right now it's my 2016 Album of the Year, though there is still a lot of year left as of yet.

Speaking of which, in this play-through video for the song 'White Flag', can anyone tell me what that 7-string guitar is during the lead solo, at the 3:15 mark? It looks like a 7-string DC127, but the headstock is unreadable/funky-looking.

Was just curious if it was an older Carvin 7-string.

Well, it's definitely a Carvin! Not sure the exact model, but its giving some strong DC727 vibes.

P.S. I know this reply is 9 months late, but the video you linked was so cool I just had to reply. 8)

Yep, DC727. The chamfer around the edge + FT7 bridge + C/D26 pickups + control layout + that headstock = DC727. :) A very nice one!

Yep, that is a stunning piece of Koa. Got some wicked flame going on, ties in great with the Flamed Maple headstock. Anyone know what those three mini switches do?

I've been on a glam metal bend lately...specifically Poison. Those dudes could rock.

I never thought I would say this, but I've been really enjoying Random Access Memories by Daft Punk. I love how they blended electronic music (which I'm usually not a fan of) with great studio musicians and a dash of disco! Probably the only album I own that was recorded in the last ten years. :wink:

Aww yea! RAM is a pretty cool album. Don't really listen to electronic, but I enjoyed this album! :D

I'm listening to the 'Collect 'Em All' album by Tilt.

It's been years and I forgot how much I loved it.

I saw Evergrey this past Saturday, along with Seven Kingdoms as one of the opening acts. Great show!

Evergrey's last two albums have had a much more melancholic vibe to them, somewhat like Katatonia if you are familiar with them. Still, Evergrey brings the downtuned progressive power metal along with being melancholy, whereas Katatonia is just melancholy with a bit of metal.

Seven Kingdoms was great too. Pretty much straight ahead European-style power metal (though the band is from Florida). Looks like they are endorsed by Caparison these days. Maybe Kiesel could go after 'em.

Just scored a ticket to see Theocracy in Chicago in less than two weeks. $12 !!!

I didn't even know they were touring. Glad I went to their website and looked.

Brushing up on their first two albums (self-titled and 'Mirror Of Souls') as those are the two I'm least familiar with. Their 2011 album As The World Bleeds I listen to a ton, and I love their new album Ghost Ship too.

Singer Matt Smith is a pretty talented guitarist as well. Indeed I think he writes all of the music for Theocracy.

I've been listening to Gaza and Cult Leader (former Gaza members). I like their use/variations on chords and the overall chaotically textured songs. I like how it sounds heavy and trashy without having to sound traditionally "evil" like a lot of death metal and metalcore-ish bands. It strikes me as a more mature hardcore band— a bit of Eyehategod, a bit of Converge, and a whole lot of heavy.

Bored, and adding an update. I've been binge-listening to Chevelle, from newest to oldest. It's really apparent how produced new releases are vs. even 10 years ago. Oi.
