I'm not huge into Arch Enemy either, though I totally love rocking out to Leader of the Rats. Let's be honest, AE weren't exactly doing great before they got Angela Gossaw to front them. She growls not too bad either.

I tried it once and it fucking hurt!

So, years and years ago, when I used to download a LOT of music (way before I ever got in trouble), I once was searching for songs from the Joe Dirt soundtrack, when a song called "Paradise" by The BoDeans popped up. I hadn't heard the song in the film, and was curious what it was, so I downloaded it. Well I quickly figured out that it was 1. A fantastic song, 2. Not from the Joe Dirt soundtrack at all, 3. Live. Searching for evidence that such a song existed proved fruitless. So now, I decide, well I'll just throw it on my DI list, and just see what I can find, maybe somewhere out there is a studio version. Well folks...5, 6 years later, I've finally discovered where the song is from (let's just say I sucked the first time I tried, and haven't really tried so hard since then). I bought the studio version of the song off of Amazon...and guess what folks. It sucks. It's got like, all these synthesizers in it, and, I know I'm the last person people expect to say this, but it's killing the song. The live performance is acoustic. So now I can't decide. Do I use the live version? (Officially released on an album called Joe Dirt Car, hence why I found it in the first place) But if I do, I have to deal with :gasp: APPLAUSE at the end. But also an interesting lead into another song I don't know...just putting that random piece of info out there.
If you can work the live track into the playlist, it might be worth going for it. I know some people are really unkeen on the use of live tracks, but that's because they tend to stick out painfully obviously. I think a couple of folk have managed to sneak live tracks in, though. If it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb and you can make the live atmosphere, applause, and stuff work with the tracks around it, I don't see the problem with using it.

Doing it will be a problem, but we will see.

The ironic thing is of course I'd probably be the only person to like the song anyways

Oh and talking about cringe worthy.

CBC (our national TV/Radio/news station) sold the rights to the Hockey Night in Canada song. Which is pretty well the second national anthem for Canada. I'm still pissed off about that.

Now, CBC has a reality show going to try to get average idjits to compose the new theme.. they've been airing a few during commercials and they are farking horrible! I think they were done on a keyboard bought at radio shack for five bucks.

Gawd.

Yeah, she really put the band on the map and her growling's pretty solid. Though I've always felt people like Mikael Akerfeldt, Dan Swanö, and John Haughm have really defined how it should be done, since you can actually understand them almost all the time.

I can growl somewhat. The black metal rasp is easier.

Cradle of Filth
Quoth one of my friends: "Trying to prove you have good music taste by mentioning Cradle Of Filth is like trying to prove you're sane by running into a Wal-Mart, stripping naked, and rubbing your own shit all over your body."

Though the hatred seems to mainly be targeted at more recent COF stuff. It seems there's some respect for their earlier work. I've never listened to anything they've made.
