Wenn ich diese kaputten Glühbirnen schon sehe, kommen mir die Tränen vor Lachen und irgendwie fühle ich mich an meine eigene "Era Infantilis" erinnert, die von Europa-Hörspielplatten und Yps-Gimmicks geprägt war. Josh Homme erklärte das Cover in einem Interview als "Sinnbild für das, was man …

    Seit dem letzten Album wuensche ich mir eigentlich nur noch, die Band begaebe sich zu Kyuss in den Ruhestand oder naehme zumindest eine lange, sehr lange Pause.

    Ach was...Josh hat auch nach dem Rausschmiss einiger Mitglieder, gezeigt welch ein großartiger Künstler er ist! Ich denke das QOTSA dadurch noch viel mehr Persönlichkeit bekommen haben...das Früher war sehr schön aber ich denke das die Zukunft noch besser wird :D

    Zitat (« I managed to snag a list of the songs they were previewing for us and took some preliminary notes on each track. An overall first impression of the songs is that Queens have delved even deeper into their already twisted take on psychedelic garage rock aesthetics, however this time around Homme ventures into swirling, almost Beatlesesque vocal harmonies on several tracks.

    "Turning On The Screw"
    A heavy bass drum kick draws you into this track which quickly turns into grind/lurch and stutter blip driven patented QOTSA riffage. There's a rusted out solo that will scratch and scrape its way into your brain. Plus there's plenty of swirling psychedelic vocal drippings to keep things fresh.

    "Sick, Sick, Sick"
    A grind-n-pull guitar blitz streamlines itself out in a herky-jerk schism sounding a lot like it was recorded in a stagnant underground cesspool of psychedelic spasm. This is a good thing, trust me. There's also an unnerving rhythmic sense of repetition that creates an aggressive and propulsive drone lending the song that feeling you get when you have the dry heaves: tension/relief/tension/relief. Again, this is a good thing. Trust us.

    "Into The Hollow"
    This number begins with fairy tale derived plinking and then devolves into a Sabbathesque shuffle. Josh really begins exploring more melodically expansive side of his vocals to the point that you can almost call it swooning (or crooning), but in a very Queens sense of the word. This track is very much a product of the '60s, with tinges of Steppenwolf lurking under the mist.

    "Battery Acid"
    Caustic, just as the name implies. This is almost a railing punk dervish with Josh returning to his familiar sardonic vocal drone so much so that he almost sounds like Chris Cornell's bastard offspring at times. However his timbre is much more subdued in tone and variation. Underneath it all is an ever-so-faint military cadence. Mid-way through the track, however, Josh slips into a melodically hypnotic refrain that provides an intriguingly chaotic juxtaposition in stylistics.

    "River In The Road"
    Sadly, I got distracted during this song (I forgot to mention that part of the event was being sponsored by Zune and I was lucky enough to get a first hand demonstration of the new player from my man Cesar), but I seem to recall it being one of the more aggressive of the bunch.

    "Suture Up Your Future
    This is a mellow loping bit of melancholy "pop." Naturally using the term "pop" in reference to the music of Queens is a precarious thing indeed, but it was instilled with a beautiful sense of lyrical lilting that showcases Homme really coming into his own as a mature vocalist.

    "3's & 7's"
    This one went straight back to the jugular with plenty of crunch, lurch, and chaos.

    "I'm Designer"
    Again, Josh returning to his aggressive vocal grind as a cool drum and rhythm chasm opened up some sonic schizophrenia supreme.

    "Make It Witchu"
    This track is a mellow, piano driven number steeped in rich darkness with alluring female vocals working well to enhance both Homme's restrained croon and the overall mood of the song itself.

    Again, while none of the tracks I heard are guaranteed to be on the album in exactly the same shape, it provided a sweet glimpse at what we can expect in June. Perhaps the most noticeable difference this time around is that Josh seems to be reaching out and taking his singing to the next level. While there is still plenty of his trademark drone and clamor style lurking throughout the songs, there's also a ton of really melodic and hauntingly beautiful vocals, singing that borders on the delicate and hypnotic and shows the man moving outside of his former comfort zone to embrace his inner classic pop star (think along the lines of Sinatra and other classic vocalists).

    As much as we hate hype and circumstance, this may very well be the best thing that Josh and the rest of the Queens have laid to tape since R made them a somewhat household name back in 2000. »):

    Der 2. Song im Trailer macht sowas von Hunger. Starker Sound-Effekt der Lead-Gitarre, Schade dass der Trailer so kurz ist :(

    Also ich freu mich auf den Juni!

    hey saugeil, da läuft einem echt schon das wasser im mund zusammen

  • Vor 10 Jahren

    Ok hier ein ganzer frischer Track der zwar nicht auf das neue Album kommt aber aus der aktuellen Aufnahmesession stammt. Freigegeben zum fröhlichen Tausch von der Band (NIN lassen grüßen ;) ) und als Appetithappen wie ich finde richtig super ist! Um die Soundqualität nicht zu zerstören ist er im Format flac. Ihr könnt aber mit dem VLC Player (http://www.chip.de/downloads/c1_downloads_…) das ganze abspielen.

    Also hier der Song Era Vulgaris (http://rapidshare.com/files/26224112/Queen…) :phones:
