haha, i was actually listening to potboy today. its such a weird song. it starts off with the aliens smoking up. then it goes into an astronaut in space who is REALLY bored. then it goes into a script of a gang related issue where someone isn't getting the money, then talking about someone acting out of agression and so on...WEIRD! but i like it
you may find this band interesting. its a prog-metal band out of france. well, its more of a solo project of a synth guy by the name of 'vivien lalu' but this solo album was INCREDIBLE! very refreshing, different, and yet very familiar as well. great vocals, great riffs, solos, drums, bass, etc....its kinda like hearing the old dream theater and symphony x thrown into one. unfortunetly, in my opinion, their best song 'potboy: the final fantasy' is not online (or at least i cant seem to find it). its an 18 minute song that starts off by 2 aliens that are high on weed, but running low, so they need to get to earth for more weed. and then the song just starts and oh! its awesome!
haahha! reminds me of the story about 'I Mother Earth'. the vocalist felt useless, and the band members said it themselves that he is just a prop for the band...even though their original singer was far better
SOOOOO funny, I'm using it on FB now (friend band's vocalist quit out of spite (he ruined their mixes online because he only does vocals so quiet that the mic couldn't pick it up, so he compressed the .... out of the tracks so he'd be audible) the day before a show with As Blood Runs Black, then begged to be let back in, and now is posting on FB telling people to report their page and unlike them.)
