  1. Awful and overpriced merch, as expected.
  2. The visuals are either very tacky, or completely unrelated to the music. Who comes up with these horrible ideas? It reeks of feijoada.
  3. Look at those amazing 3D visuals, it’a like they went back in time to 1992 and asked someone to do the tackiest shit they could think of with the technology available at the time. Everything about this band reeks of making the minimum effort and mediocrity.
  4. Pink… didn’t she guest in one of Slash’s forgettable albums? Or was it the other way around? Slash also did guitar tracks (and was even featured in the music video) for some Spanish pop singer back in the early-mid 90s. I doubt anyone even remembers her name. I’m surprised Slash hasn’t played with Bieber or Drake or Ariana Grande or any of these young pop stars. Didn’t Axl call him a limelight whore?
  5. Jesus lol Axl was so fucking off. The transition between the break and the chorus always seems shit with Frank. What’s so hard about it?
  6. It’s in the melody. I don’t care about the song, but it’s appeal is in the melody and also the vocal harmonies in the chorus. Those were the hooks.
  7. I don’t know if masterpiece, but it’s a very good song. I enjoy it a lot. The layered vocals in the chorus are great. It does get repetitive, though.
  8. You’re a very sad individual if that is the case. Your head is so far up your own ass, it explains why you post what you post: your brain is swimming in your own shit.
  9. Jesus, how fucking dumb are you? Do you understand what you read? I’m not complaining about his timbre ffs. I’m talking about his pitch and horrible breathing technique which ruin his performance.
  10. Dude, you sound more and more like it must be Beta behind the keyboard. Pitch is just practice/training. No mention of that? And the breathing thing… the fact he’s always been doing it wrong doesn’t mean that it doesn’t make his performances very subpar.
  11. And that is not true. He could sing without rasp and use his clean natural voice, but the problem here is not timbre or dynamics, is his pitch and bad breathing technique.
  12. That doesn’t go against anything I said, in facr I agree with your assessment in this post. Conveniently, you left everything else out. You just choose to focus on timbre, and that’s a choice for sure, and I have nothing against it. Now let’s talk about him being out of breath way too often (this tour has been particularly awful in that regard) to the point he has to skip lines. That has nothing to do with “rasp” or compression. Let’s bring up pitch too, which has nothing to do with the rasp either. His current pitch control/accuracy is awful even in his middle range.
  13. He doesn’t have a voice anymore. I don’t mind his clean voice, I’m not fixated on the rasp as if it was an imperative. He just doesn’t have a powerful voice anymore, au contraire mon ami, it’s weak, no projection, awful pitch control, his lack of breathing technique makes him miss whole lines cause he’s out of breath (and this is in big part due to him being in bad physical shape). ACDC was in 2016. It’s 2021. Are you telling me he can still sing well but chooses not to? All you are referring to is his timbre, which is the least of the problems in his performances.
  14. Isn’t Fernandinho in charge of their atrocious merch?
  15. Maybe, maybe not. Are you currently enraged? Do any of these symptoms apply to you at the moment? - Increased stress. - Increased agitation. - Anxiety. - Yelling or shouting. - Intense anger. - Physical aggression.
  16. Izzy leaving the band is what ended things. His songwriting was the backbone of the band, and his syncopated playing set GNR guitar work apart from the rest. Listen to AFD, then listen to those UYI tracks without Izzy… the magic energy between the 2 guitars was GONE. To be fair to Ragenar, Slash and Axl elevated Izzy’s songs to turn them into the great stuff we know and love. But that’s what the backbone is, he provided the foundation for great songs. Slash can’t do that. Neither can Axl. At least not to that level.
  17. I don’t know. Slash’s playing in general has deteriorated into this soulless derivative style that has little to offer. On top of that his solos have become these pointless uninspired noodling wankfest. Axl’s not to blame for that, Slash stopped playing like Slash a while ago. Money-wise the guy is laughing. But beyond that, it’s irrelevant, just like Slash himself, or Axl, or this band. These guys made great music, they had their time to make a big mark in music and pop culture. Expecting them (individually or as a group) or any other musician or artist to repeat that feat is absolutely stupid.
  18. I never said that was like prodigy. Wtf are u quoting me for?
  19. I love the Prodigy, but silkworms seems to me more rooted in industrial and not so close to the Prodigy, mostly for the lack of groove. The rhythmic core of silkworms seems more rooted in rock than techno or electronic music. I can see people in Berlin dancing all night to Prodigy in some dark club. I can’t say the same about Silkworms. It’s more of a headbanger than a raver.
  20. It’s a song that was stripped off its context, so it doesn’t work in 2021. The song had a solid structure that they fucked with: They got rid of the intro, which was tied to the bridge/break. So now the bridge section seems like it came out of nowhere and was just placed there. They got rid of the chorus, and instead we get Axl saying “absurd” over and over. Now it sounds awfully repetitive, why the fuck would they do that? It was an industrial song, it’s a different genre, don’t expect the complexities of hard rock, or metal, or progressive rock. It was just heavy, some cool synth work, heavy guitar chords, no crazy solos, no elaborate riffs, just raw hard energy. The lyrics were written by a hurt angry Axl more than 20 years ago. It made sense. Fast forward 20 years and what we have is a bunch of >50 year-olds playing a hardrock cover of an industrial song with a weak structure, with an old man screaming “pussy full of maggots”. Don’t get me wrong though, to me Axl singing those lyrics today is as painful as him singing WTTJ, ISE, YCBM, Brownstone, etc… completely out of place and kinda pathetic. Now, younger Axl and the gang (finck, tobias, tommy, etc) playing the OG Silkworms… that stuff had energy and it was just a raw industrial song with angry Axl on vocal, very fitting for the times. Again with this band, what could have been great 20 years ago doesn’t quite translate in the same way today.
  21. Same here. If they had released an album like that in the late 90s it would have been great. I liked the industrial/electronic direction. Give me more fucking layers (but properly mixed).
  22. it was a change for the worse. The original structure was great. The song had a full chorus. I can’t wrap my head around some of these decisions. I’m glad they released something, I’ve always liked the song. This version improved in some areas and it lost in others, but that’s just my personal taste.
  23. I don’t think there is real “hate”. Hate is something much bigger, deeper and darker. Here we just talk shit, make fun of things… nothing too big. Personally, there’s a lot of shit that is very wrong with this band, and bringing that shit up isn’t even close to hate. Now, if we talk strictly about music, there will always be people who like it and people who don’t. Voicing one’s opinion one way or the other doesn’t turn us into haters or nutswingers. Relax and enjoy the shit talking. If you can’t do that, I’m afraid you’re not going to have a good time in this forum.
