3 Summery music videos – Music Match V7

In today’s Music Match Volume 7 we have 3 summery music videos. Unlike the past Summer Music Matches which actually had summer music videos, these ones are not so much about summer or invoke the feeling but did originally air or were featured for the most part during the summer months which is why I associate them as “summery” even of not “summer” music videos.

Listen back.. Kittie: Spit in your eye DVD

I want a piece of your soul!
I want you!
I want to know what you’re all about!
gimme! gimme!

KiTTiE was a popular all girl nu-metal band in the early 00’s that quickly rose and disappeared from the spotlight but “Spit in your eye is” a VHS chronicling their adventures on their first tour so it is able to give a snapshot of what the band was like at that time specific time so let’s take a look.

Listen Back.. System of a Down – SOAD self-titled album review

I had just begun 7th grade when I was talking about music with a friend and back then I didn’t have a wide variety in my taste in music but each of us mentioned “one” was a great album, the one he mentioned was System of A Down’s self-titled album. We each lent each other an album and began to listen. I don’t really remember what I thought about it when I first heard it, I didn’t love it but I remember listening to it many times so I’m guessing I didn’t hate it either. I used to listen to it a few times while making Pokemon Decks for the Pokemon league on friday nights. Funnily enough I don’t remember thinking it was a particularly heavy album and this was one of my first exposures to metal. My friend eventually moved without warning so he never gave me back my album and I got to keep this one, my only problem when I was older is that it was an edited CD and the only edited version of the CD that I ever owned.

Listen back.. Freddy vs Jason soundtrack

It was the summer of 2003 and my friends suggested we see a movie so we end up seeing Freddy vs Jason which I didn’t really care for at the time but was happy that I saw it since these were two horror icons of my childhood, movie was ok but I was recommended the soundtrack by some friends and decided to buy it. It got some rotation but it was never really a great soundtrack for me oddly enough one of my friends who I saw the movie with wanted to buy it after listening to it once in my car. At this point we had already reached the peak of nu-metal but we still see plenty of it here as well as some other bands that were differentiating themselves from that genre.

Listen back.. Adema self-titled (album)

Tonight I’ll talk about Adema’s first album which came out in 2001 right at the peak of nu-metal and this album is pretty much the epitome of nu-metal. I don’t mean it’s the best nu-metal album but it surely represents what the genre became better than any other album before or after. Riding off the fame of Korn the band was promoted as Jonathan Davis’ younger brother. A must for any angsty teens arsenal in the early 00’s.
