A: I think it was designed by Jeremy and/or his brother Dave Pelligrin. Now he’s got more of a three piece project and I’m going to go see him tomorrow. That’s probably why I’ve been ignoring it in favor of techno.
Alternative Music. Does anyone know exactly what it really is? The term ‘alternative music’ seems to cover such a broad spectrum of musical genres, it’s really hard these days to say what really is alternative music.
Albany isn’t an easy scene for metal, with the overwhelming number of hardcore acts in Albany and Troy, but Of Gods and Destroyers makes that work for them, through musical ingenuity and distance from the scene. “It’s weird, man,” Crossett said. “We’re just metal enough for the metal fans and just hardcore enough for the hardcore kids. We’re always walking that line.” The band is still looking for more shows, though. “I don’t know, the scene in Albany, there are some bigger shows we wish we could get on, we play the shows we can get, but we just have to keep sticking with it,” said Crossett.
We’re doing a Faint tour next month but we have out weaker shows and the final one is a big festival here in Omaha with Spoon and some other bands. Besides that I haven’t made any pans to see any shows yet.
There’s a film being made – that I have had the privilege to work on – about the scene back in the day, called When We Ruled H-Town. It’s still in production but there was a show in February to preview the first part of the film and reunite several of the bands. Over 600 people showed up at Fitzgerald’s during yet another of our infamous icestorms. J. Schneider and Brent Himes are doing the film and bands are coming out of the wordwork to be a part of it.
With the band’s touring behind “Ritual” nearing the finish line, the band hits one of their most high profile tours to date- playing with cartoon death metallers Dethklok and thrash legends Machine Head for a tour that will last through November. After that, the band is locking themselves in a studio and commence on the recording of the band’s sixth album, due out at some point next year.
The show opened on the Hot Topic stage with death metal band White Chapel. Although they got the crowd going with the first Wall of Death most pit, they were pretty disappointing.
Next we turn to the Billboard Charts. The top of the Alternative Chart for the week ending September 22, 2012, included fun., Alex Clare, The Lumineers, Mumford & Sons, and Muse. In listening, I found two of these with a heavy country/bluegrass influence, and two with a generic soft-pop sound. Only one seems to fit into what the original alternative genre started out as.
