Musing on Music - ONOMA
When you think of Israel, you don't think of alternative heavy metal. ONOMA is out to change all that. ONOMA just released their first single and video entitled Bug. It's quite amazing. It has a Tool-ish Alice in Chains-ish feel to it. It's stark and gritty and full of massive riffage thanks to Asaf Keidan on guitar. The bass sound on BUG is thumpin. In parts of the song, the bass is forefront. I love it! Andrei Aframov is a powerhouse. The vocals are sweetly wicked. Elad Koren has a sultry edge to his voice and then he lets it all out when he switches to the screamo type vocals. It makes you go O_o He's just that good! Saggi Chen's drumming hard and driving. If Bug is any indication of how the debut album sounds, "All Things Change" was a dark horse of 2012! To bad I didn't know about them sooner, or they'd be on the Top 10 Albums of 2012. Sylvia Masy and James Murphy created some wicked alchemy with ONOMA's debut album. All Things Change has that heavy feel that you get from a SOAD, Skunk Anansie, Testament album. Definitely check out ONOMA at Onoma Website and give them a "LIKE" on Onoma Band on Facebook Here is Bug from the debut album "All Things Change".
Saturday evening just after 7:30 pm, the Phoenix Convention Center’s fire alarm system activated. The Convention Center takes these alarms seriously, and decided it was necessary to make an orderly evacuation of the building. The preliminary indication is that it was a false alarm and there has been no actual emergency. Technicians are currently checking the system along with fire prevention specialists from the Phoenix Fire Department. The Phoenix Convention Center made the decision to suspend programming for the rest of the evening, as the technical evaluation is completed. We will update you as soon as we get additional information. Phoenix Convention Center and Phoenix Comic Fest will hold a media briefing at 7 am Sunday morning at 2nd Street and Adams, in front of the Phoenix Convention Center West Building. We have met with the Phoenix Convention Center, security providers, and fire department officials. Phoenix Comic Fest will continue as planned on Sunday, May 27th. We anticipat…
On January 30, 2014, Lars Ulrich, Metallica's founder, driving force, mouth piece, and drummer took to the Reddit AMA for a sit down with his harshest critics. . . his fans. Lars Ulrich tends to polarize people, fans of Metallica or not. Either you love him or you hate him. There seems to be no in between. Indeed, Lars is has a strong personality. He says what's on his mind (at that moment). He's wickedly intelligent, privileged, bold, a bit daring, and he's a damn fine businessman. Those are the exact traits that cause people to NOT like him. I'm in the camp of "loving Lars". Every time I've met him he's been polite, funny, caring, and on a few occasions, a bit of a brat; which made me love him even more. Reddit users got to ask Lars any question they chose from the inane to the profane and everything in between. This is just a fraction of what Lars answered - the important bits.
