Zeromancer

Genre: electronic rock

Discovered: don't remember, "Send Me An Angel" cover

Other: Norway's NIN?

HIGH FIVE:

1. Send Me An Angel (Real Life cover)
2. Split Seconds
3. Something For The Pain
4. Houses Of Cards
5. Flagellation


That’s kinda a fun remake. It’s another one that would work well in a movie soundtrack. And, yep, very Norwegian.

Cleopatrick

Genre: heavy rock

Discovered: don't remember, "Hometown"

Other: When I found Royal Blood (thanks to BBC Sound Of 2014), I was elated! This is the type of music I really get into, and they were doing it so well. Their third album lost me (computer-programmed disco rock, they suddenly entered their "I Was Made For Lovin' You"/"Do Ya Think I'm Sexy"-era unfortunately), but right around the same time I heard "Hometown" from these guys and was able to quickly fill the void. Two kids from Canada destroying stages (and selling them out across the US and UK). Now my RB t-shirt sits folded in my drawer and my Cleo shirt gets plenty of wear.

HIGH FIVE:

1. Hometown
2. Youth
3. Daphne Did It
4. Good Grief
5. Victoria Park

I like it. I always thought they were more thrashy or something. I should check out some more of their stuff.

Kings X was always great. I haven’t heard any of Dug’s solo stuff before. Not too shabby. Another one I should listen to more of.

First Serve

Genre: hip hop

Discovered: already knew De La Soul

Pop Evil

Genre: heavy rock/radio metal

Discovered: don't remember, "100 in a 55"

Other: Heard "100 in a 55" back in 2008 and thought it sucked (still do, it's a Nickelback-wannabe song). But in 2013, "Deal With The Devil" made me start taking an interest in their other songs.

HIGH FIVE:

1. Deal With The Devil
2. Let The Chaos Reign
3. Set Me Free
4. Last Man Standing
5. Colors Bleed

The Glorious Sons song isn’t too bad.
The Lacuna doesn’t do much for me.
Wolf had turned out to be the musician you would have expected him to be, but I haven’t heard anything that really grabs me. He has to learn hook next. He can certainly pull it off. Props for pulling off an entire album on his own.

I like the Pop Evil I’ve heard so far.
