I Need Your Help!

hey there,
Me and a few friends are starting a band, and we had everything sorted until..... I discovered that our band name "Paranoia" was already taken by 3+ bands D: So today, I would like to hear your suggestions. The music genre's we are going for are, goth metal, industrial, rock and a bit of an individual style. So give me your opinion and if we all like it and all agree on it then we shall consider it :D

The name I have got in mind right now is "hell bound hearts"

Tell me what you think :D

My daily song - Never enough - IvyLies

Hi there, Today I have chosen Never Enough by Ivylies for my daily song. IvyLies are, as I see it, The next big thing in nz and I must admit, I am a bit of a crazed fan, but who can blame me? They're great.

As usual I will post a bit of background info on them so you can get to know them a bit more :P

"Throw together 4 girls, give them some guitars, a bass, a drum kit and a microphone and you’ve got New Zealand’s answer to the hottest all girl rock group… Look out as these girls are going places and they mean business!"

IvyLies are made up of Emla (vocals, guitar), Rosie (drums), Mihka (guitar, keyboard) and Lisa (bass, vocals). The band was formed in Christchurch by Lisa, Emla and Rosie when they were just 14. They then moved up to Auckland in 2008 and took on board Mihka.

“ADDICTED”, is their first single from their debut album and was featured in an ad on C4 (for all those of you from overseas C4 is a music channel, and how I discovered the girls, thank god for advertisements). They have just recently released there latest song "never enough" on iTunes and one of my faves.

IvyLies have had many concerts lately, including their performance Rollercoaster (skate and BMX comp) which I attended and was lucky enough to meet the beautiful Emla :D.

Well anyway enough about the band, I'm sure you guys wanna hear the song.

well here it is :D

(if you look closely you can see me in the audience :O)

Well I hope you enjoy. Heres the girls myspace & twitter incase you want it

My daily song: Vicarious - Tool

Why hello there little pretties. I have a song for you guys. Todays song is vicarious by tool. Tool are one of my ll time favourite bands and possibly the most fun to play on guitar hero.... not all in a row though.... FINGER CRAMPS!! :(

So heres a bit of background info on the band.

Tool is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1990. Since their inception, the band's line-up has included drummer Danny Carey, guitarist Adam Jones, and vocalist Maynard James Keenan. Since 1995, Justin Chancellor has been the band's bassist, replacing their original bassist Paul D'Amour. Tool is known to have rigorous touring schedules in support of their albums, they have performed well on charts worldwide, and have sold an estimated 9.25 million records in the United States alone.

Tool emerged with a heavy metal sound on their first studio album Undertow in 1993, and later became a dominant act in the alternative metal movement with the release of their second effort, ├ćnima, in 1996. Their efforts to unify musical experimentation, visual arts, and a message of personal evolution continued with their third album, Lateralus, in 2001; and their most recent album, 10,000 Days, released in 2006, gained the band critical acclaim and success around the world.

Sorry it's a bit longer then usual, it's just all so interesting, and well I guess you don't have to read the whole thing. SO NO COMPLAINING!!! :D well I'm off to hang with my mate who I haven't seen for years :D Will blog later

enjoy your lives (and my post)
