Nirvana's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction last night was awesome

First of all, isn't the speed at which news is released great these days?

Great story BTW, Jim Farber. Excellent and trained is your hand in music journalism, distant Jedi colleague.

So, last night, Nirvana was part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 2014 Induction Ceremony. The band members and a few family members of Kurdt Cobain's came onstage to say a few words, as well as Michael Stipe.

Have a Nice Life's "Dan and Tim, Reunited by Fate" is a strange trip thru the woods

This is a cool avant garde video from Have a Nice Life. The song is called "Dan and Tim, Reunited by Fate."

Definitely starts with the Lynch Noise, then moves into some kind of light ... music on bass plus keyboards and other sounds, then.. I don't know, man. I don't know what to call this.

That's why it intrigues me.

Here, watch it. Via The Flenser.

Rotting Hills "Seventh Prayer" Video & Song Analysis

So guys, go to Cvlt Nation's page here and listen to this four-drummer black metal thing and watch the brilliant accompanying video. Very satisfying. It's a video that stays with you after you watch it.

The band is Rotting Hills. I'd never heard of them before today. But today they blew me away. Four drummers. You read that right. There is a thunderous drum sound on this thing. It is monstrous.

It's additionally a well-produced sound. When you think #blackmetal, you think terrible production, punk-speed tempos, pretty simple guitar riffs, and the shriek right? Boom, you've got black metal from your friend's basement and it sounds like ass but they HOLD to that sound. It turns away all posers.

Rotting Hills' sound, on the song "Seventh Prayer" anyway, is meditative; it begins slowly and lures you in.

So don't be alarmed if you're not a black metal fan. The sound is atypical of black metal. I don't know what else to call it, however. The music itself is cinematic, and didn't they do a live score recently as well? Videography is made for this music, and they've got a sweet final product on their hands right now.

One of the drummers directed it too. It's fully a Rotting Hills presentation.

Here's that same link again. It's currently only available on Cvlt Nation.
