You know the drill: no song yesterday means two today. Shazam!

Just in case you're not a regular reader, let me get you up to speed on something: I'm from Canada. Not only that, I'm proud to be Canadian, and I feel really fortunate to be able to live here. But every once in a while Canada does something that makes me a sad, face-palming panda.
Usually when I'm picking songs for this, bands have a tendency to wait until after I've chosen a given song to released a video for it. Whether it's a honest-to-gods music video or some live footage, I'm usually left to update you after the fact, or else simply let the occasion pass unmarked. Not today.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Mechanical Animals is easily Marilyn Manson's best album.

Just as old Protest might possibly keep us all going until the release of new stuff, perhaps some A Perfect Circle can help sufferers of Tool withdrawal make it to the next fix... whenever that might be coming.

If, as I've often said before, Sylosis has inherited the thrash crown laid down by bands like Metallica et al., then they've done so as Britain's representative only. Boston's Revocation is most definitely current American champion of releasing records that contain 110% of the daily recommended dose of riffs in each and every song.

The Volto song "Tocino" from a couple of days ago has a video that's a bit... strange, I think does it. Today's song also has an interesting video, although it's a different kind of strange.

Perhaps I've mentioned it before, but I'm going to see Nine Inch Nails in concert in October. I have to keep reminding myself from time to time, both because I keep forgetting and because it's an awesome turn of events.

I'm a firm believer in album openers. It's important to get your record started off on the right foot. Do, and you can establish momentum that carries listeners through the rest of the audio experience. Don't, and you risk losing listeners early.

Quickie song for you this evening, or at least quickie post, because you're going to need a few minutes for today's song. Around seven, to be precise...

This one's another one I've been waiting to be able to post for a long time. I was among those who supported Mandroid Echostar's indiegogo campaign, and I'm finally getting to hear the fruits of theit labour.
Wow, it's like I should just start doing Songs every other day, right?

Touche Amore is one of those bands I'd see mentioned online without bothering to look into them. I never made the leap because I thought I had no reason too, thus never finding out if they're any good, never getting that reason to check them out, and perpetuating the cycle. Until today.

Sure, they're not metal, and they're not even my favourite of the "grunge era" bands (that honour belongs to Soundgarden) but there's still no denying that the new Pearl Jam song is pretty decent.

I know I've done it a time or two here in the Song of the Day section of Loud Noises, but I'm going to do it again today, because every once in a while I feel the urge to revisit the awesomeness of Glassjaw and lament the lack of a new record from them still.

I'm always excited when I discover a new band that tickles my fancy, but that goes double for those times when I discover that said new band is Canadian. It's not just Nickelback, Celine Dion, and Bryan Adams up here everybody!
Circumstances somewhat beyond my control (read: drinking and Super Nintendo) precluded my posting a song last night. But you all know the drill in these situations by now, so let's just move forward, shall we?
