So, really the only reason I'm writing this post is because remember those two free tickets my friend won? Well, he won those by entering a weekly raffle for a venue in Atlanta (The Masquerade). Ever since then, I too have entered. I mean, I'm already on their mailing list, so I'm not going to get any more spam. And all I have to do is choose three of their upcoming shows, and I have a chance to win two tickets to one of those shows. Guess what? I WON!....Unfortunately, for the past several weeks, my number one pick has been Amon Amarth, and alas I did not win those tickets. Instead, I won two tickets to see Stone Sour with Theory of a Deadman, Skillet, Halestorm and Art of Dying. (Which, I mean free is awesome. Don't get me wrong, but first off, this isn't a show I would consider paying to see, and secondly, I'm already planning to see An Evening With Amon Amarth and I don't have tickets yet. I'm worried why I didn't win them. I REALLY hope they aren't sold out!)
Moving on, Stone Sour is an American rock group that is mostly known for being the side project of Cory Taylor. (The lead singer for Slipknot.) I'll admit, I listen to both. But, are they my favorite bands? No. Stone Sour is supposed to be a side project that Taylor can record slower songs for. As such, I like *GASP* a lot of the really slow stuff they've put out. Well, guess what? A lot of that is on their second album Come What(ever) May. I'm not saying that their first, self titled album has no good songs, or that none of them are slow. What I guess I'm saying that I like their second album more. As such, I'm skipping the first, and posting more of the second. The only song that I kinda want to post from their self-titled is Omega. But that's spoken word. Fuck it. Here's a hyper link. BUT I'M NOT POSTING A VIDEO!
Okay, so for actual music, here's Through Glass........Okay, so I can't find just a normal "studio version song + cover art" video. It's all either live or music video. And both annoy me. I dunno.... Perhaps it's just my mood....Or the 100 proof vodka in me. No. It's not that. Anywho, here's the music video.
Next is Zzyzx Road. Yey. Normal video.
I also really like Sillyworld from this album, but I'll move on...
Here's Say You'll Haunt Me from their newest album, Audio Secrecy. I don't know about you, but I hear this ALL THE TIME on XM.
And lastly, here is Hesitate from the same album....This video also annoys me for some reason. So you get cover art.
