Tomorrow by The Amity Affliction (Silverchair)

• November 13th, 2017

Let me preface this by saying first of all, I understand that this is not popular opinion, it is an individual’s thoughts. I understand too that this was done as an addition to the upcoming Silverchair tribute album, and I have nothing against The Amity Affliction, in fact I like them but let us put that aside for now.

I just want to focus on the song by itself right now. I get though, that this wasn't a cold choice by The Amity Affliction to do this cover for one of their albums. Now, is the point all of The Amity Affliction fans start hating me because now is the point where the bad review starts.

Listening to the track reminded me of a decent pub band on Friday night trying to be unique but failing. To me all it was, was just Silverchair's version with down tuned guitars and occasional awkward "does it sound good here" screams. Where was the originality? It felt unoriginal.

To look at a decent metalcore cover one only needs to look at Killswitch Engage's cover of Holy Diver by Dio. That is what a cover should be. Hint of the original, but the band made it their own.

This was a good cover of a great song. It could have been so much better. This is no comment on The Amity Affliction as a whole, just this one particular song.

Don't forget Rob Zombie's cover of Blitzkrieg Bop to see how a non-metal song can be converted into a metal genre.

I remember the original Tomorrow coming out and I think I'm too close to this. To me so Silverchair are one of the greatest Australian bands ever, and I understand this is a tribute not a chosen cover song. Out of 5 stars, I give this song to 2.5 stars.

Music taste is subjective and everybody has a different opinion on everything. I am looking forward to the entire album coming out, it might sound better with some context.

Judge for yourself, here is the link to the YouTube video:

Episode 27 - Trikki Part 2 (Professional Wrestler, PCW)

• November 15th, 2015

This weeks episode is very late due to fucking technology!

The guest this week is Trikki back for his second week and we have a pretty awesome conversation. For someone who is not the typical guest that is usually on #theFMLpodcast, it ended up being one of Toms favourites!

Tom get a little controversial in segment 2 and may lose a few subscribers due to his point of view.

The sound quality during the interview is a bit better this week and it all works out in the end.

Song of the Week: Breaking Orbit -When Isis Starts To Cry

Band of the Week: CHUD

Episode 26 - Trikki Part 1 (Professional Wrestler, PCW)

• November 6th, 2015

This weeks guest is not the typical guest that is usually on #theFMLpodcast, this weeks guest is a professional wrestler, and his name is Trikki and he is from the Melbourne promotion PCW!

Tom ends up going a little off the prepared question sheet and he & Trikki just start talking about everything wrestling. Tom has never hid the fact that he is a huge wrestling fan and he wanted to do this interview for a very long time. The sound quality during the interview gets a bit hard to handle at first but it all works out in the end.

Song of the Week: Devil You Know - Eye of the Tiger

Band of the Week: Southeast Desert Metal
