The hipster in me loves their new album 'Babel', its just a very good album from beginning to end. If you haven't picked it up I would recommend it. The metal in me hates the hipster in me though...I have a headache.

:fight:


Haha same here, not typically into hipster music. I'll have to check out the album. My usual listening music is Korn, NIN or the like. While the music I actually play/perform is classical or jazz.

I don't understand the fascination with Mumford & Sons, but as a metal guy, people don't understand the fascination with a lot of the stuff I listen to, either :)

One of my current favorite bands is The Sword, who just came out with a new album (their fourth) in October called Apocryphon. If you're a fan of old-school metal like Black Sabbath, you'll love these guys.

A sad song for a tragic day...

While I've yet to scour all 68 pages of this thread the lack of good punk is deplorable.

Good segway, Dave.

Couple from Joy Division. One of rock's greatest tragedies. :(

In his soul searching recovery from a broken ankle, Tyler has stumbled upon a new instrument to express himself - the banjo. While the instrument, long a symbol of southern simpleness*, stands in juxtaposition to the antique books on the mahogany shelves behind him, he manages to illustrate the complexities of New York City's public transit.

Don't worry, y'all. Since you were so in awe of the beauty that is the five-string banjo, more songs will come shortly. Avett, Mumford, Kingston, Cash, the likes.
