Why 2007 is awesome


13 Feb 2007, 9:57

2007 is going to be another great year of music. Here's a list of 2007 releases which are already out, leaked (the albums which I have liked) or I'm looking forward to. Feel free to expand my list if there's something you think I'd enjoy as I'm sure there's stuff I don't know about or I'm forgetting.

I'm not completely sure if Ephel Duath are going to release a new album other than the remix album but I'll keep my thumbs up. They have mentioned a new album and I don't think "remix album" would exactly qualify as one... but I dunno. We'll just have to wait and see.

I'll try to keep this updated every now and then. I'm too lazy to update this list with releases I already have (which aren't on the list) so only upcoming releases will be updated.

Last update on 2nd May 2007.

    Oh yes, I forgot the new Deerhoof. I definitely liked it, good stuff. Gotta check out new Air even though I have heard it's not good. New Jesu is also good news, will have to get that. And new Swallow the Sun? I'll definitely have to get that. Thanks for letting me know about these.

    i didn't like the deerhoof as much as thier previous two albums, the air is not as good as talkie walkie, but it's good in it's own right. the instrumentals are the highlight. and for me jesu peaked with heart ache. and the swallow the sun is great, it has a very opeth feel to it. which is, of course, a good thing. you also might enjoy the psyopus and beneath the massacre albums.

    I'll check them out. :)

    gone with the wind And Anekdoten <3. I wish they'd released a new album because I really like Gravity.

    Do you know when that Julian Fane comes out? Amazon et al say Feb 20, but his MySpace page says it's been delayed till April.

    19 Feb 2007, 15:08
  • DSlayer

    If his myspace says it's been delayed, that's most likely true. A lot of sites are always behind on updates. It has leaked though.

    Some new albums to look forward to. New Oceansize New No-Man Elliott Smith - New Moon There was something else too but I forgot what. Either way, I can't wait for new Oceansize.

    God Is An Astronaut - Far From Refuge Riverside - Rapid Eye Movement 65daysofstatic - The Destruction of Small Ideas I'm really looking forward to these ones, especially Riverside :D You like some great bands, very good taste in music! ;)

    28 Feb 2007, 14:59
  • Quickdive

    The new Riverside is pretty weak, actually. I'd definitely recommend you to go with the Pain of Salvation release instead.

    65daysofstatic should be nuts. all their shit is wicked.

    I like almost everything you mentioned here. New Meshuggah is indeed confirmed. As well as new Dillinger Escape Plan!

    20 Mar 2007, 19:45
  • DSlayer

    Oh yes, new Meshuggah, forgot to update. They are recording it now I think. New Dillinger = great news!

    Katatonia - Live Consternation New album to look forward to!

    Great. There's a new Tomahawk album on it's way, as well. When does Devin release?

    early summer so it's probably coming out in a month or two. These past months, Devin worked on his puppet show but this project evolved into a full-length concept CD in the vein of Strapping Young Lad meets Punky Brüster. Ziltoid the Omniscient will beam episodes on the web and the record will be ready for an early summer release via Inside Out and HDR. Devin played all the instruments on this record with the assistance of the Drumkit from hell. He also mixed and produced the record. Also, I updated the list today as I learned about some really good new releases. For example, new EF is something to look forward to. I also believe dredg might release an album this year but that hasn't been confirmed.
