@Voltan Weaponized Funk: Nice tune, I like a good funk/metal mix. You like Red Hot Chili Peppers at all? I don't care for their newest stuff, but some of the old eighties tunes were funky.

Never heard of The Sword! Catchy riffs! Are they newer? I like the 80's style. Here's one for you, we haven't talked about these guys, but I'm a big fan:

@Voltan Scorpion Child-Antioch: I love this, this was my favorite of the last 3 you've posted. Definitely got some Zeppelin vibes out of that. Maybe even a little Triumph.

@LordSteev Can't say I'm a fan of the Peppers. Being a musician myself, I usually gravitate towards more complex music in general but I do like some classic rock and metal if done right - problem is I've already heard so much of it, I rarely come back anymore - instead looking for things that can still surprise me somehow. My playlists have been mostly weird fusion music lately
I do like BOC though They also released a pretty good new album recently!

@LordSteev yeah The Sword are a current band. Vocally they give me some serious Black Sabbath vibes. System of a Down is great, though I haven’t followed them for what feels like ages. Gonna see what they’ve been up to...👍

@Voltan ah, that explains a lot...from my limited research, it doesn’t seem like they’ll be doing much in the near future either. Bit of a shame.

Moving away from rock and metal...
It's pretty safe to assume everybody's familiar with the song but I really enjoyed this jazzy reharmonized version of Adele's "Hello"

@Voltan one of my favourite songs of all time...Truthfully, I didn’t love it. With that said, I appreciated some of the compositional changes to the arrangement and found it vocally powerful and on par with Adele’s version. For me, the beauty of this song is in its simplicity so I’m naturally a hard sell on literally jazzing it up. Glad I listened though, thanks!

@Jimmer-jammer That's just the thing - I've heard and played the same simple triads some many times myself that I find it hard to enjoy most pop music nowadays (I still like original but I wouldn't listen to it a lot) I'm a very specific case though and I'm sure it's not for everyone.

Here's what I'd like pop music to be a little more

@Voltan Pop music these days honestly isn’t pop in any way. The genre ‘pop’ has gone kinda out of the mainstream, with Charli XCX and other similar artists having the freedom to actually push the boundaries. These days, trap is basically pop. With varying shades of ‘not bad’ and ‘incredibly lazy’.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

Voltan

@nessisonett Sounds about right. I'd still consider Adele pop and mainstream though

@Voltan Every Adele song sounds like an X Factor winner’s song to me 😂

@Voltan can’t deny the awesomeness of those tracks nor the raw talent on display there, with the bassist being the unsung hero for me. Nice recommendation!

@Jimmer-jammer I'm hoping to finally see them live this year, along with another of my favorites - The Dear Hunter. They were supposed to be at a festival in Germany but obviously that got postponed. It's in October so I'm a little more optimistic about it than about any summer festivals.

(although tbh this is one of the bands that you need to listen to in the context of the entire album to get the full picture)

@Voltan that was...quite the song! Very theatrical. What album would you recommend?

@Jimmer-jammer try either "Act IV" or "Act V" - the five acts are all parts of the same story but the first couple albums were kinda rough so I don't recommend starting with them for the best first impression - the band really matured later. This particular song is from Act IV.
