  2007 Music Lists - Update - December 31st

Some 2007 lists/ features of interest:

Guardian Unlimited: Arts blog - music: Why is metal still ignored by the mainstream?

It's been an outstanding year for metal with critics falling over themselves to embrace the genre. So why don't any of 2007's excellent releases feature in the end-of-year lists?

London's Puregroove Records look back at a year in which the DIY spirit stood firm, the likes of Joakim, Friendly Fires, and Holy Fuck released enthralling records, and a whole new army of musicial misfits, poets and electro-boppers emerged.

Systems of Romance

systems of romance was created in mid-2007 to serve as a dumping grounds for all great things post-punk, coldwave, synthpunk, minimal wave, and various other combinations of these styles.


In development, a taxonomy of music genres on rateyourmusic.com: Roles

Words of Wisdom from Norway: MIC Norway: Merry X-mas! - much the same as UK - in Norway Major Labels are in meltdown in terms of creativity and musical innovation - they are culturally insignificant.

And if one scrutinises the 2007-catalogues of the major labels it is indeed somewhat drab reading: your predictable selection of safe and established artists, few debutants and no records to make 2007 a year to remember.

My Kingdom Music

Gothtronic | News: New Signings for My Kingdom Music

New bands have joined the My Kingdom Music roster. They are DEMETRA SINE DIE, THROUGH YOUR SILENCE, THE VOID & AURA.

DEMETRA SINE DIE debut album is titled "Council From Kaos” and is a mixture of dark atmospheres haunting and evocative melodies a la NEUROSIS, KATATONIA and TOOL. Release date: Jan. 25th, 2008.

THROUGH YOUR SILENCE represents a compromise between the best Swedish Death Metal and the American Hardcore. A must for fans of DARK TRANQUILITY, THE HAUNTED, SOILWORK. Release date: Feb. 29th, 2008

The brand new album by THE VOID, “Vision Of The Truth”, is over 55 minutes of inner reflection and rage. Pure Dark Metal a la MOONSPELL, TIAMAT, TYPE O NEGATIVE. Let the rage explode. Release date: March 2008

AURA is our greatest bet. Their music is Progressive Metal influenced by early QUEENSRYCHE and DREAM THEATER and by Prog masters GENESIS and PFM. A sure kaleidoscope of emotions. Release date: May 2008

2007 culture overview

Also an interesting read covering more than just music: In League With Paton: The Last Words on 2007

Not only has The Wire magazine made the boldest choice of album of the year amongst the print media with Robert Wyatt's 'Comicopera', it also continues to publish rather neat personal summaries of the closing year from both writers and artists. I rather like this - so here's my subjective take on 2007, in a similar style albeit much less concise! All in no particular order, entirely personal and NOT WRITTEN IN A WORK CAPACITY.
