Si es que hay algunos que no piensan en otra cosa ;P. Directo desde el viaje de estudios de mis neuronas:


A pocas horas de ver a Franz Ferdinand, me encuentro con el profiláctico franzferdinandiano, desde RollingStone.

Condones promocionales de Franz Ferdinand, que se repartieron con salida del single hace unos meses. Safe sex!

Vaya, vaya con los FF. Resulta que no sólo quieren hacer bailar a las chicas……vaya pillos ;) Lo que por otra parte es lógico y obvio. No todo es bailoteo…..

Y luego resulta que ahora dice Alex Kapranos, que para enero empezarán a grabar otro disco….

Y todavía no hemos llegado al jueves noche, en el Arena……que ganas!


Más conciertos a la vista.

De los primeros en pasar por España el año que viene serán Obituary [wiki]:

Day Date Country City Venue Show
Fr Jan-27 Spain Barcelona Razzmatazz 2 18
Sa Jan-28 Spain Madrid Aqualung 19
Su Jan-29 Spain Bergara Jam 20

Con su último disco, «Frozen In Time», Obituary buscó una vuelta a su sonido más característico, lo cual se contrapone a la actitud (poco popular y muchas veces recriminada) de otros dos grupos que vendrán juntos de gira: In Flames [wiki] y Sepultura [wiki].

SEPULTURA‘s 11th full-length album, «Dante XXI», is due in early 2006 via SPV Records. The CD was recorded at Trama Studios in São Paulo, Brazil, where the group had previously laid down the «Revolusongs» EP, which contained cover versions of songs from such acts as MASSIVE ATTACK to HELLHAMMER to JANE’S ADDICTION (and was included in the limited-edition digipack version of 2003’s «Roorback»).

Working under the watchful eye of producer Andre Moraes (with whom they’ve previously worked on various Brazilian film soundtracks), SEPULTURA‘s follow-up to «Roorback» is based on the epic poetic masterpiece «The Divine Comedy» written by Italian author Dante Alighieri in the early 14th Century. The three main components of «The Divine Comedy» are Dante‘s descriptions of Hell, Purgatory and Paradise.

In addition to the 10 tracks that are set to appear on «Dante XXI», SEPULTURA recorded two cover songs ? JUDAS PRIEST‘s «Screaming for Vengeance» and SICK OF IT ALL‘s «Scratching the Surface» ? which will be released as single b-sides in the future.

Habrá que ir a verlos :).

Uno de los discos de culto de los 80 tendrá continuación. Queensrÿche [wiki] está trabajando en la continuación al famoso «Operation: Mindcrime»:


Long-Awaited Sequel to Platinum-Selling Concept Album Available From Rhino March 14

LOS ANGELES ? Queensrÿche returned to the studio this summer to record the long-anticipated sequel to 1988?s acclaimed concept album Operation: Mindcrime. Praised by critics and certified platinum, the original remained on Billboard?s album chart for more than a year and its dynamic music and powerful message still resonate today. Rhino Records helps unravel the mysteries of the original with OPERATION: MINDCRIME II. The album is available March 14 at regular physical and digital retail outlets and at www.rhino.com for a suggested retail price of $18.98.

OPERATION: MINDCRIME II contains a 15-song story and is performed by the Seattle-based quintet ? singer and chief songwriter Geoff Tate; guitarists Michael Wilton and Mike Stone; bassist Eddie Jackson, and drummer Scott Rockenfield.

Tate says the current political and social climate inspired him to revisit the storyline. ?I left the original open-ended with the intent to come back with a sequel to finish the story up,? he says. ?Considering where we are today and how little things have changed, it was too ironic not to continue the story.?

Operation: Mindcrime?s intriguing and complex plot revolves around Dr. X, a political puppet master who brainwashes Nikki, the story?s main character, to assassinate corrupt public figures. The story also includes Nikki?s lover, Sister Mary. A former teenage prostitute who becomes a nun, Sister Mary is murdered mysteriously, leaving the cliffhanger ?Who Killed Sister Mary??

Set 20 years after the original, OPERATION: MINDCRIME II explores Nikki?s fate after being released from prison and reveals the identity of Mary?s killer. ?I tried to put myself in Nikki?s shoes and imagine what it would be like for him to come back to society after spending 20 years in jail stewing about what happened to him,? Tate says. ?I became fascinated with the concept of revenge and what that would do to a person like Nikki. The story is ultimately about how Nikki wrestles with his conflicted emotions. On one side, his base instincts are pushing him to kill those who wronged him. On the other side, his conscience?represented by the spirit of Sister Mary ? urges him to learn from his past mistakes and find salvation.?

Earlier this year Queensrÿche launched a sold-out tour featuring the original Operation: Mindcrime performed in its entirety with actors on stage portraying the characters alongside the band. Tate says the band plans to launch a tour in 2006 that will feature a stage performance of both Mindcrimes in their entirety. ?The actors on stage with us add a new dimension to the music,? he says. ?It?s different than your typical rock show, but the audiences really got into the Mindcrime I tour. It?s exciting to have the opportunity to combine both albums into one show. It?s going to be epic.?

Since its formation in 1981 near Seattle, Queensrÿche has released nine studio albums. Empire, the 1990 follow-up to Operation: Mindcrime, sold more than two million copies thanks in part to the enormous success of the hit, ?Silent Lucidity.? Released in 1994, Promised Land was certified platinum and featured the hits ?I Am I? and ?Bridge.?

Para ello contará con una colaboración de lujo: el incombustible Ronnie James Dio [wiki].

(12.16.2005) DR.X IS NONE OTHER THAN….

History is about ready to repeat itself, and in a big way. Today queensryche.com is happy to announce who the mysterious Dr. X is! It’s none other than legendary rock/metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio! These […] photos, taken just yesterday, came at the conclusion of Ronnie’s vocals and thus puts the wraps on the recording of Mindcirme II. If you’re lucky enough to be a fan club (campaign) member, you’ll be happy to know that more photos have been posted. If you haven’t joined the online campaign yet, now is a great time! (wink, hint)

Dio dice en su página web sentirse halagado por la posibilidad de hacer esta colaboración:

It’s official. Ronnie will be singing the part of Dr. X on Queensryche’s Operation Mindcrime II, the long-anticipated sequel to 1988?s acclaimed concept album Operation: Mindcrime.

Ronnie recently headed up to the Bay Area to record his part on the record, and commented on being chosen to play Dr. X: «I was flattered to be asked to be part of the Operation Mindcrime II project, and it was truly great to work with Geoff Tate again.»

We are all very excited to hear the record, due in record stores March 14, 2006.

Hay que recordar que, hace ya una temporadita, Geoff Tate colaboró con Dio en el proyecto Hear ‘n Aid.
