Tuesday, August 26, 2008

Rammstein - Engel



Rammstein were my gateway in to metal music. I bought the album 'sehnsucht' while I was down in Bath with my dad (he was on a course for environmental health and we stayed in the campus...and I got my first taste of a student union in the summer months lol)...and this was the 2nd track on the album. Rammstein are one band I would love to see before I die...they are meant to (and do, if you watch any of their live dvds) put on an awesome live show. If I had a top 20 bands I've listened to most in my life Rammstein would definitely be in there :)

Monday, August 25, 2008

Crowbar - Slave No More



A good bit of sludge metal to kick off the week. The G and I attended a gig in Glasgow with Hatebreed main eventing and Crowbar supporting...I got a parking ticket but it was worth it. Check out George's music video blog @ http://george-gmvb.blogspot.com/

Gabriella Cilmi - Sweet About Me



This song is constantly on the radio alongside the ting tings and the verve....and seeing as how I've already posted the verve...and refuse to blog the ting tings...so you can experience 'sweet about me' as my tuesday girl blog post :)
