Awesome cover art!

As I Lay Dying lead singer Tim Lambesis’ Arnold Schwarzenegger parody-band Austrian Death Machine has announced their third album, “Triple Brutal”! This album follows previous releases “Double Brutal” (2009) and “Total Brutal” (2008).

Triple Brutal will be entirely independently produced via Crowd-Sourcing website “IndieGogo”, which allows fans to help fund the Austrian Death Machine Triple Brutal record and get cool extras for doing so, including a Vinyl copy of the album! As always with crowd-sourcing, the more money you give to the project the cooler stuff you can get!

If you haven’t heard of the band “Austrian Death Machine”, they (“they” previously being simply Tim Lambesis himself and a voice-guy pretending to be Arrrrnold) are a metal parody band that is inspired by famous Arnold Schwarzenegger quotes (Like “Get to the Choppa!” or “Come With Me If you Want to Live”) and Schwarzenegger movies (Terminator, Jingle All the Way, Total Recall, Predator) that builds kickass metal songs around those quotes and movies. Throughout the songs there is a parody voice of a guy who sounds like Arnold saying funny things (as well as Tim Lambesis…. playing himself. “Arnold” often makes fun of Tim and calls him a “girly man”), including actual Arnold Schwarzenegger quotes and wordplays. The albums also features comedy interludes between songs of Tim talking to “Arnold” which plays on Arnold’s ultimate masculinity and overall ability to kick your and everyone else’s ass. :D

Here is one of my favorite Austrian Death Machine songs to give you an example, it’s Arnold’s quote from the movie “Jingle All the Way” and the song is called “Who Told You You Could Eat My Cookies?” Naturally, the quote lends itself to a Cookie Monster parody! Enjoy!

Additionally, here is Austrian Death Machine’s official music video for “Get to the Choppa”!

In short, Austrian Death Machine is AWESOME! You should both check out their previous albums and help them create their third album by backing this project! DOOO ITTTT!

I should also mention that Triple Brutal is the first album that will feature major guest stars from other bands, not just on vocals but musicianship as well and even on the writing of the songs. Previously Tim Lambesis not only did the vocals in the songs (outside of the Arnold vocals) but also all the musicianship himself. This time he’ll have help from guests including drummer Brandon Trahan of Impending Doom and guitarist Ryan Glisan of Allegaeon/Pyrithion! Awesome!

Guilty Pleasure Song of the Day – Rush by Aly & AJ (From their Debut Into the Rush Album)

Aly & AJ Rush Music Video ScreenshotOkay guys and gals, time for something completely different: Guilty Pleasure Song of the Day.

Guilty Pleasure Song #1 – Rush By Aly & AJ

If you’ve kept track of my Song of the Day articles, you’ve probably noticed by now that my main affinity lies with Christian metal, as well as a sprinkling of Rap & Hip-Hop. In actuality I am a HUGE metal fan and that’s almost all I listen to. I am a true headbanger. But I also love rap music and I listen to a lot of Christian rap as well.

What else do I listen to? My guilty pleasure is actually the bubbliest kind of pop known to man. I’m talking about stuff like Hillary Duff, The Spice Girls and yes, Aly & AJ. Maybe it’s because of my younger sister who used to have all of these bubbly preteen pop albums, and one day I decided to pop one in and listen to it and I enjoyed it. From then on I’ve found it kinda easy to like a lot of the preteen girl pop out there. In addition to a few more “normal” pop albums like Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne and Stacie Orico.

So my guilty pleasure is definitely, without a doubt. Pop music. I still stay away from certain heavily secular songs, so a lot of modern-day pop like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, doesn’t appeal to me. I think one of things that I enjoy about the preteen pop is the innocence of it. Stuff like Britney Spears literally makes me wanna gag. Or Christina Aguillera and her uber-sexual song like Dirrty. Ugh. Really? REALLY. Grown ups actually listen to that, eh? Of course they don’t, I’m sure it’s all teenage boys, but that song was NOMINATED for “Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals” at the 45th Grammy Awards. And yes that’s why I don’t listen to much secular music. Case closed.

Sooooo, that leads me to… Aly & AJ. Who are now known as “78violet” (and are both Christians I might ad, like the Jonas Brothers). I must confess that most of my Guilty Pleasure stuff are more individual songs than albums and I usually haven’t followed the artist after the album. With a few exceptions. But its not like Demon Hunter, Becoming the Archetype or The Showdown where I own each and every album and know every single song and the accompanying lyrics and listen to them all the time. Having said that, I have nothing against picking up more of the stuff from these artists, its just that I haven’t.

Rush is the first track and title song of the album “Into the Rush” (Released on August 16, 2005) by Aly & AJ (now known as 78Violet). The song was the first huge hit for sisters Alyson and Amanda Michalka and helped propel the Disney-backed album and the duo into stardom. This album was followed by a Christmas album entitled “Acoustic Hearts of Winter (2006)” and their Sophomore record called “Insomniatic” (July 10, 2007).

A third album was recorded for their Disney label (Hollywood Records) and was to be self-titled 78violet, after their official new name-change. However the album was infinitely delayed, and after parting ways with the label the release of the record was in jeopardy, and still has not surfaced to this day. As such, they had to record a completely new album, which is still on track for release this year. It will be “more mellow and more soulful” and has no less than 18 songs recorded for the album, including titles Suspended, 8 Hours and 53rd Floor.
