The Fall Of Troy just released Manipulator a few weeks ago and yet they’re already speaking up about their next album, Phantom On The Horizon. Drummer, Andrew Forsman, made a statement about Manipulator, ?We definitely wanted to explore a little more of the song-writing aspect than just putting a bunch of crazy riffs together. I mean, obviously, we?re getting older always. I think–definitely, we didn?t want to do the same album we did last time.”

Manipulator was produced by Matt Bayles and it looks like he’ll be producing their next album Phantom On The Horizon. ?Working with him was great, he?s just an awesome dude?he won?t let you suck?when we heard he was interested, we were really happy. I think we?re going to do our next album with him and he?ll probably be a bit more involved in the songwriting,” quotes Forsman.

Specifically detailing Phantom On The Horizon, ?We?ve done some demos of those songs but I think we?re going to go through and change them up a little. the plan is to redo the Ghostship Demos and we?ll probably end up writing a couple more songs, we?ve been writing a little bit right before we left [for the Deftones tour].?

No date has been released for Phantom On The Horizon, but you can look forward to another album by The Fall Of Troy in the not so distant future. It’s rare that a band looks forward so quickly after a release, but at the same time dedication and determination is proof. As for now enjoy the beauty behind Manipulator and prepare yourself for Phantom On The Horizon.

The Fall Of Troy has increasingly became well known for their erratic vocal changes and tempos. These guys are amazing musicians and strong on their instruments. Playing together since they were all just 17 they have grown into a band that has evolved into a new genre. With their latest release, Manipulator scheduled to come out this Tuesday, May 1st is amazing. Don’t believe me, check out their myspace. And if you can’t get enough you have to check out Doppelg?nger. Some of my favorite songs include Semi-Fiction, I Just Got This Symphony Goin, and Macaulay McCulkin.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE DAY: Vanna The Things He Carried

In 1998 Steven Tyler sustains a knee injury at Aerosmith’s concert in Anchorage, Alaska. The injury is bad enough to require surgery and force the band to postpone the 14 remaining dates of its North American tour. And in 1999 it is announced that drummer Tommy Lee has quit Motley Crue to devote time to his new band and family, following his reunion with Pamela Anderson Lee. Lee’s new band is called Methods of Mayhem.

In a recent post by the band:

I am looking at the Manipulator artwork right now. There has been a CRITICAL typo in the liner notes…
One of our oldest, dearest, most talented friend Sang backup vocals on the following songs:
Cut Down All The Trees and Name The Streets After Them
The Dark Trail
Quarter Past
Oh! The Casino!?
As well as any of the keyboard/organ parts you hear. She wrote all of the keyboard parts and arranged them.
I feel absolutely terrible about this typo. I did NOT play a note of keyboards on this record. She deserves 100% credit for her contribution to the completion of this record.
We hope to bring her out when we do a headlining tour supporting Manipulator in the coming months to perform with us.
We are deeply sorry to Nouela and to anyone that plans on purchasing or listening to the songs.
Sincerely Yours,
Thomas J. Erak

ARTIST OF THE DAY
The Confession

Hometown: Orange County, CA
Genre: Hard Rock, Metal
Sounds like: Avenged Sevenfold, Atreyu
Current Album: The Confession
Myspace: myspace.com/theconfession
Official Site: theconfessionmusic.com

The Confession comes out with a lot of energy. I recently seen them in concert this past weekend and I was very impressed. I even picked up their EP and upcoming album Requiem. The Confession sounds very similar to Avenged Sevenfold, so much that even M. Shadows of A7X guest vocals on some of their tracks. Their album Requiem is scheduled to be released on June 19th. Listen to No Angel, Dance With The Devil, and Bleed You Dry. I expect to hear more about this guys. Oh and you can see them this year at Warped Tour.

In 1999, In no way was there an influence on Eric Harris and Dylan Kleibold, the gunman in Littleton Colo. shooting, Marilyn Manson issues a statement: “I have been asked to comment by numerous news organizations on the Colorado school tragedy. It’s tragic and disgusting anytime young people’s lives are taken in an act of senseless violence. My condolences go out to the students and their families.”

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Chiodos

Hometown: Davison, MI
Genre: Hardcore, Emo, Rock
Sounds like: The Fall Of Troy, From First To Last,
Current Album: All’s Well That Ends Well
Myspace: myspace.com/chiodos
Official Site: chiodos.net

I know I’m sure majority of you are familiar with Chiodos, but I just couldn’t resist writing something about these guys. Leaving in Flint, MI for the past 6 years it wasn’t hard not to hear of Chiodos. Seeing them play locally was a real treat. And now a few years later they have sky rocketed across America. For those of you who have yet to experience Chiodos, I demand that you goto their myspace right now and have a listen. They somewhat spuratic melody changes and massive technicality it their work is hard in itself, and then to make it sound good, they do that perfectly. Craig’s voice layered over top of that just adds to the dazzle. They are currently working on their sophomore album, scheduled to be released this fall, titled Bone Palace Ballet. Until then I’ll continue to rock out All’s Well That Ends Well, three years later.
