Periphery is on Roadrunner? what?
Yes, outside of the US, they have been for fucking ages you plank
This band is fucking wretched.
i thought they were periphery
A guest solo from JP?? ....Wow....
Hell yeah mother fuck.
Also, something which is often said, but not said often enough:
LOL Asking Alexandra.
You act like this isn't much, much less impressive than Jeff Loomis on the last album
Petrucci is far, far more well-known, Jake's cousin or not.
Impressive was the wrong word. Loomis was far more exciting than Petrucci
Not surprised about the petrucci solo.
What's the album called?
That's true. I can't really get behind either of them though as I'm not that hot on 'metal' solos.
(still lol tho)
I can't really stand Loomis half the time he's playing guitar solos, so a Petrucci guest solo is far more exciting to me.
still no album title
bulb what gives
Aside from Bulb, this band looks like a bunch of douchebags.
And by "aside from" I mean "including."
You're so wrong it hurts my kidneys.
They both suck, so who really cares
Although I'm definitely right
Although I'm definitely right
I LOVE JP. Jeff Loomis is impressive though.
why dont you guys argue some more about it?
Well, I mean no disrespect to Loomis because I actually really quite like his playing; he's one of those guys where if he's on he's fucking ON, like the solo in Engines of Hate, I really like that solo, but a lot of the time he's just all like weedly weedly shreddly weedly, and I mean he's good as fuck at that too he's like weedly and it's pretty cool, plus my main 7 string that I use is his signature model for fuck sakes, so Jeff is just the man. Plus he's always consistently just ridiculous, I've never seen one Youtube video of him fucking up, really.
That said, Everything JP has done on: Images and Words, Awake, (most of) Falling into Infinity, Scenes From a Memory, Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, (most of) Train of Thought, (like two solos on) Systematic Chaos, Black Clouds and Silver Linings and A Dramatic Turn of Events, no to mention A Change of Seasons and all of his work with LTE and his live solos on G3 (fuck they were awesome) and that one 2 or 3 minute improvisation on Rock Discipline, have been infinitely better than anything Jeff has done. I mean, this is all just my opinion but I mean. Fuck.
oh jesus.... guitar players talking about guitar players.
thats because you like extremely generic, trite, psuedo emotional (shitty) metal pseudo fusion soloing.
Meh, I don't really attempt to decide whether or not guitar solos have "emotion" anymore because I'm not 13, but I do dig me some Sfogli and Per Nillson and Paul Wardingham, those are kinda my guys right now. I don't think they're psuedo fusion, and I don't think Loomis or JP are fusion at all in any sense of that obscure word, but meh. I actually don't really like Fusion a ton, I just like it in small doses, which is why I like it in an occasional metal song for a solo. My band plays jazz and fusion all the time in the car and it's just over my head I think.
ya so like pseudo emotional, trite generic wannabe fusion bs. i get it.
and i don't think you actually like fusion or jazz, you like what you think is fusion or jazz, which is rarely ever fusion or jazz. just sayin.
Glad we're on the same page?
look mah i like jazz
I didn't mean that we had the same taste in music, lol, I meant that I'm glad you understand what I mean.
one time i thought your band guy liked jazz, then it turned out he's a fagot
hey guys im having a jazz recital where i wont play any bop or swing lo
Meh, I think he's awesome.
yo bro check out my east coast fusion big band
Can we just establish that guitar solos are fucking lame?
For the most part, this is definitely the case, but then, y'know, Allan Holdsworth.
In most cases, yeah pretty much. Some songs just cry out for one though.
Yeah, I used to try to force guitar solos in my songs and they're all lame. On our EP I have one solo and it's p good, imo.
Jazz is fucking horrible. Fucking nausea-inducing. COME AT ME BRO
you play shitty dt covers
no, they're the most integral part of all rock music
I bet a drummer, bassist, vocalist or pretty much any other instrument player would disagree with you.
lol Lol LOL!
com eat me
i thought arguing about whether a guitar solo has emotion (and, if so, trying to quantify it) was completely DTF territory.
That's why in TF we try to feature everyone. On our EP there's one guitar solo, one bass solo, one drum solo, and a keyboard solo.
EDIT: FUCK THERE'S TWO GUITAR SOLOS. FUCK
EDIT: but one of them is a bunch of weedly chromatic diminished chords so it barely counts.
Separate names with a comma.
