If you follow Mr. Disgusting on twitter, you’ll know that he is an avid follower of basketball. And if I were to guess, I’d assume that he’s also a phenomenal dancer. As in he’d rock the two-step followed by a Charleston and finish it all off with a tap dance routine that would leave Dulé Hill in tears. But all of this is besides the point.
The point here is NBA Baller Beats, a new game coming out for XBox Kinect on Sept. 11th. The game uses an official Spalding NBA game ball replica and your body motions to match your dribbles and “passes” to the beat of licensed music. I highly doubt that the game comes with a warranty for all the lamps, vases, tables, chairs, glasses, and whatever else is in your game room that you are going to destroy once that ball leaves your hand.
Below is a trailer for the game as well as the disc soundtrack and previously mentioned songs for the game. READ MORE
On this edition of Twisted Music Video Of The Week, BD Infected user peepjerky recommended that we show you all a video featuring, “…skulls, cut open girls, trippy visuals, and is NSFW”. Hell, I’m sold! So, without further ado, below is the video for On’n'On from Justice, which comes off their album Audio, Video, Disco! READ MORE
‘Betray, Justice, Revenge’ is the second album from Finnish symphonic folk metal band Kivimetsan Druidi, following Shadowheart, which came out approximately a year and a half ago. If you’ve never heard of them, the six-piece band can easily be compared to pre-Anette Nightwish (Leeni-Maria Hovila has a very operatic style of singing, similar to Tarja Turunen mixed with some of the eccentricities of Kate Bush). There is a lot of symphonic passages and folk melodies as well as a mixture of clean female vocals mixed in with heavier male growls.
The breadth of this album is quite diverse relatively speaking but is standard fare when listening to such bands as Within Temptation, Eluveitie, etc… The production is also very solid but sounds a little dry. In general, considering the amount of instrumentation going on, it’s pretty incredible that music was pretty much without any muddiness.
