[listening] What's On The Turntable?

#62
Some late period Fugazi Red Medicine, End Hits and The Argument. Only the latter sounds anything like a fully formed record. The other two have some good moments but also a lot unfocussed guitar widdling and random squawking in the vocal department. A dreadful cliche I know, but I prefer their early stuff.

At the moment, it's the new Voivod album for me:

After nearly 2 decades in the wilderness the French Canadian proggy thrash band have since 2012 been making some of their best ever music.

Unfortunately they seem to be avoiding the Midlands this time.
Yes, surprising that, it is the home of metal after all. I'm in the W.Mids but my brother lives in The Smoke so I'm going with him to see them at the ever salubrious Camden Underworld.

Quite likely not a popular view but I enjoyed the stuff they did with Jason Newstead. I miss the sheer monolithic crunch of Piggy's guitar. Daniel Mongrain cuts the mustard live but his guitar sounds too clean and weedy on record.
