I’m kind of bummed they didn’t include it on the record. Thrice’s Water EP once provided me with one of the most transportative listening experiences of my life, which is strange because to this day I’ll reach for Fire or Air in a pinch every time. –Rowan. Fucking c’mon academy–move on. REQUIEM (Jupiter, 2000)There’s almost like a Middle Eastern-inspired guitar riff that kicks in about halfway through this song. You might have the Hola VPN extension installed. Riley was speaking to Mischa Pearlman. –Channing Freeman, I have been listening to “The Earth Will Shake” for so many years that it took a lot of effort to hear it with fresh ears for this list.

Your IP was not banned by a person; it was banned by a firewall that uses an automated algorithm. Virtually all of their albums are great. Major/Minor is one of Thrice’s bleakest albums. done anything to warrant a ban, this is most likely the case. It’s great! While I think Major/Minor and especially To Be Everywhere is to be Nowhere are both great albums, it is clear that Thrice lost some of their willingness to experiment once they stopped producing their own records. –Channing Freeman, Bands: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z, You need to be logged in to post a comment, http://www.sputnikmusic.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/02-Open-Water.mp3, http://www.sputnikmusic.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/10-The-Artist-in-the-Ambulance.m4a, http://www.sputnikmusic.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/01-Firebreather.mp3, http://www.sputnikmusic.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/03-The-Earth-Will-Shake.mp3, http://www.sputnikmusic.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/03-Circles.mp3, http://www.sputnikmusic.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/07-Music-Box.mp3, http://www.sputnikmusic.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/04-Daedalus.mp3, http://www.sputnikmusic.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/10-Anthology.m4a, http://www.sputnikmusic.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/05-In-Exile.mp3, http://www.sputnikmusic.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/05-The-Whaler.mp3. Thrice is an American rock band that formed in Irvine, California in 1998. There’s no disputing that this record played a critical role during my so-called ‘formative years’, and having recently celebrated its 15th birthday, I’m pleased that the album is represented here. I’ve listened to this song probably 1000 times and I get chills every time. 4. We are hoping to eventually work on a solution for this when we have the resources to do so. You might be using a VPN. It’s such a good song. It definitely sounds like it could be played on a sitar or something. There’s also great drumming. –Xenophanes. That’s pretty damn close to heaven for me. There’s something about dropping out that’s really important, too.

SING MY LOVES (White Silence, 2011)This is from the most recent record, and it pretty much sums up everything about Cave In in one song. JUPITER (Jupiter, 2000) With Palms a mere week away from release, our staff felt that there would be no better time to reflect upon the top ten songs of this influential, generational band. I go back and listen to these records over and over and over and over and over again. Louder is part of Future plc, an international media group and leading digital publisher. It hit me because they made these songs when they were like 15 years and it has some of the greatest shredding on it that I’d heard in a long time.

With so much superb content to choose from, it just might have been our toughest ranking so far.

It’s got great vocals from Stephen Brodsky, awesome screaming from Caleb, it’s got another one of those epic Cave In endings that goes on and on for three minutes but I feel like I could listen to it for three hours – there’s just layers of awesome, spacey guitar stuff with really heavy undertones.

It’s just one of the riffs. Thank you for signing up to Louder. Future Publishing Limited Quay House, The Ambury, BIG RIFF (Jupiter, 2000) 2. “I am in exile, a sojourner” is how Dustin Kensrue begins. But the song goes through a bunch of different twists and turns and it’s just awesome!

The drumming on it is just phenomenal – there’s a lot of work with batons and there’s some really cool rolls. JOINT 10. If you don't think that you've It’s got everything. It’s just brutally heavy with cool dynamics and it’s also got melody.

And you can look online for them playing this song years after they write it, at the reunion shows, and it’s just on a completely different level. Then the music drops away completely as the band’s gang vocals imitate those field recordings, complete with the sound of pickaxes striking rocks. Whatever it takes – mix our mortar with bones.” Thrice had been exploring increasingly ambitious, even biblical and mythological themes in their recent records. 1. 5.

Similar to how a first responder can heal a victim physically, it’s not unheard of for musicians to heal listeners emotionally during troubling times. You literally ALWAYS do this. There were some amazing songs in that era. Like I literally don’t even know why you would bring that up, dude. –Sowing, “I am in exile, a sojourner” is how Dustin Kensrue begins. When the song ends, the band moves into more experimental territory with the rest of Fire and Water, but “Firebreather” remains special for starting things off on such a strong note. 3.

–Channing Freeman, Following the ambitious, genre-bending Alchemy Index albums, Beggars finds Thrice simplifying their sound while continuing to experiment rewardingly.

7. If I was going to be like ‘You should go listen to Cave In, this is what they sound like,’ I’d probably show them that song, because it encapsulates everything that they’ve done across their entire career. All rights reserved. How they kept this from sounding gimmicky, I’ll never know. Our automated banning policies are not perfect and sometimes too strict, and some IP addresses are banned by accident. Thrice’s new album To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere will be released on May 27 through Vagrant. “The Whaler” is the ultimate example of what Thrice was, and I believe still is, capable of achieving. It’s something that I know my brother and I have referred to several times. “Anthology” If there’s ever a Thrice documentary, this will be the song that plays over the last few … JUGGERNAUT (Until Your Heart Stops, 1998)There’s a section at the 1:01 mark of this song, after the super heavy metal stuff, where it’s screamed vocals with no drums and no bass and no other guitars – just one guitar and screaming vocals – and it feels like it’s setting up this part that gets even bigger and more heavy and chaotic, but it’s a total fake out, because they go into this snare roll, super spacey delayed guitar thing, and it’s as cool as cool as shit because it’s so unexpected. Some combination of Kensrue’s bone-weary mariner’s narration, the muffled dirge of the music and the weather outside made my teenage self feel in another place and time entirely, the first instance I can remember of music becoming more than just some sounds playing in my ears. Did you install a browser extension (such as Realplayer/Realdownloader) that helps you download YouTube videos or other content? This effect may have dulled over time, but what remains apparent is that “The Earth Will Shake” is one of the most unique rock songs ever created.

–Rowan, When I was initially creating my submission list for this feature, I was surprised to see that a significant chunk of my tentative list featured songs from The Artist in the Ambulance.

What they were going for, it seemed like, in that era was just this big rock sound that was almost like Failure or some of the better Foo Fighters stuff, and I feel like they were doing it so well it’s a bummer that it never really took off the way anybody hoped it would.
Whereas records such as The Alchemy Index or Beggars offered up silver-lined warnings, this was the first instance – as far as my retrospective memory of Thrice is concerned, anyway – that the band looked at the world around them and just couldn’t find a way to make it into something potentially positive. CROSSBEARER (Beyond Hypothermia, 1998)This is from their first record [comprised of early demos and split singles]. He’s trying to get to “a city that endures when all is made new […] where there’ll be no pain or tears anymore”, a place with some undeniable Biblical overtones, but that’s almost less important than the simple fact that he’s trying to get there. I don’t think we’d be the same band we are today if it wasn’t for that experience.

It’s insanely heavy, but there’s also plenty of melody. “Open Water” is a grim counterpart to “The Messenger” and “Daedalus” insofar as they feature characters utterly exhausted with/disgusted by their respective elements.
