Alright people, (((((OPENmindSATURATEDbrain))))) has managed to not implode during the first month of operation. Operation? It's a freaking blog.
So, on the 1st of every month, I will be posting a ZIP file with songs for the upcoming month with ALL specifics deleted from the tags, so unless you already know the band, there is NO information regarding each track. During the month, I will post reviews for those bands and link the tracks to the review so you can associate the two together. This way you can listen to a new song/band and have as little bias as possible.
This month, also called "June" by the layman, 31 bands will be reviewed from the mix that you can download here:
The mix that will be reviewed in July has been posted below and features:
-some soundtrack/musical tracks
-new Spanish rock/screamo band that could explode into amazingness
-some Neil Perry worship bands
-the best active mainstream rock group
-obscure epic-instrumental rock/metal band that gives Pelican and Explosions in the Sky a run for their money
You may notice that the July mix only has 19 songs. That is because during my first month I have realized that posting on the weekends is more or less a waste of time. I mildly stress out in an attempt to ensure my posts are done each day, then I get busy, then I don't finish, then I feel guilty - and then I see the hits for that day and I realize that it just wasn't worth it. So, reviews will up 5 days a week, with dispersed news/interviews/tours and brain seepages dispersed throughout the entire week. I'm also going to be embedding video/audio now, but if anyone wants the link-style from last month, just let me know. There will also be more consistency and more aesthetic appeal within the overall blog framework.
I'm getting pretty positive feedback from my readers, and I usually hear the biggest problem is that I'm not getting the name of this blog out there enough. But I'm lazy, so help me please. I read lots of blogs and would love to exchange links, so hit me up. Like my shit? Recommend it. I've got quite a few interviews coming up, which have been much more popular than I had first realized, so feel free to get the word out about those. TRACHIMBROD will be posted on Monday! There might even be some exclusive pre-release stuff in the future from other bands. Maybe. Maybe not. No bands have sent me anything of their own volition, though. Send me something, I'll probably post it!
