It’s time for a little musical publication today to talk about Thrice, my favorite band. I think this information starts to be quite obvious 😉
(You can find the previous articles I made on Thrice albums at the end of the article)
Their new album “Palm” is set to be release the 14th of September (I already pre-ordered it 🙂 ). 10th album for Thrice, it’s amazing. Once again, I think they will surprised us!
The first single “The Grey”, release the 5 of June, was more or lease in the right continuity of the previous albums Beggars and Major/minor. We find the characteristics of the Thrice’s style with a grunge touch, no so brutal like their first album but catchy and quite powerful. It seems they have made an album more dynamic than the previous one that was, in my point of view, a bit too calm.
Your turn to listen 😉
The second single was released the 14th of August “Only Us”. Right from the first seconds I have to admit I was somewhat disconcerted. The song starts with synthesizer sounds a bit repetitive, inspired from the 80’s. We think immediately about the new wave style and mostly about the album The Alchemy Index Vol 2 Water. The voice of Dustin is still so impressive, powerful and soft in the same time. The singing comes rapidly, then it’s catches up by distant chorus and finally the guitars and the power of Thrice arrive after 45 seconds. It’s stays soft and calm until 2 minutes and then they release their all potential.
This track is a gem! I’m in love with this song and it’s particular sound.
Your turn to put an ear on that 😉
Even if Only Us is quite surprising during the first seconds, I really enjoyed the track. I think I have listened it almost each day since the release. I really fell on this song the influence of The Alchemy Index mixed with the rock/grunge style of Thrice from their last albums. A song very original, with new and old stuff inside, and after discovering The Grey, those two singles really exciting me about the new album!
Thrice managed to astonish us with each album, renewing their style but keeping their identity. The Grey and Only Us announcing an original album once again. Can’t wait for the 14th of September!
And you, what did you thought about those tracks?
See you soon,

Summary of previous articles about Thrice (French version only)
Sad news today when I came back home from the work and learned that Chris Cornell died yesterday at the age of 52 years old 😦
Singer and rhythm guitarist of Soundgarden and Audioslave, he has been found dead in his hotel room in Detroit after performing.
It’s a really sad news, I even thought it was a bad joke. As a big Fan of Soundgarden, Audioslave and also his solo albums, it really hurts me to hear that. One of the last figure of Seattle’s grunge era left us. It’s a sad day.
R.I.P. Chris Cornell

Album : Carry The Fire (2015)
Album : Richards/Crane (2015)
For this year 2016 I decided to try (yes I said try) to start again to write English translations of my articles 🙂 It will be tough, but I will try to come up with some English article each two weeks! It will be good for me to practice my English writing like this, and in this way I will maybe expand my English speaker followers 😉
So, let’s start with some music! Aaaah music! One of my biggest passion and inspiration
Usually, If I throw myself in the writing process of a new musical article about a band or an album I will never stop to write :p That’s why I decided to try to write small musical articles according the same pattern. Anyway, I would like to be quickest, in the same time providing interesting information and of course with a good criticism, those are my goals 🙂
Let’s start with the first eponym album of the band Richards/Crane!
It’s been awhile seen I shared with you a « Weekly music video », but I am going to fix this mistake! 😉
So here is a small video clip for this week with nothing less than the comeback of Sir Marilyn Manson himself!
Yes, indeed he is back and for our great pleasure! With albums « The Golden Age of Grotesque » and « Eat me, drink me » relatively underwhelming with only few songs getting out of the batch, he managed to put his head out of the water with « The high end of low ». « Born villain » in 2012 marked clearly his resurrection to finally three years later lead to « The Pale Emperor », an album beyond reproach, without mistake and reminding me the great era of the trilogy « Antichrist superstar », « Mechanical animals » and « Holy wood ».
This new LP is rock, melancholic, sick, sad, in summary a pearl 😉 We don’t know where to look with all those amazing tracks like « Killing Strangers », « Depp six », « Third day of a seven day binge », « Worship my wreck » (one of my favorite 🙂 ) or even « Slaves only dreams to be king ».
Enjoy the excellent song « Deep six »! (Weird video clip don’t you think? 😉 )
