    i am still listening to MVH.

    also, I would have a heart attack if I saw We're In This Together, Ruiner, or Dead Souls live.

    There were two shows in NC last summer, I went to the first one but didn't have money or time for the second one since it was a ways away... my manager went, though, and he said it got delayed because of a thunderstorm, so Trent made it up by playing Ruiner AND Dead Souls.

    Needless to say I wish I had robbed a convenience store for cash to go to that show.

    the updates for Year Zero have been coming in at a pace nobody could have imagined... :O
    now a Danish site is reporting that Queens Of The Stoneage are releasing an album this June and Trent will be contributing to it among serveral others.

    what a year this is turning out to be! :D

    edit: heres the snipet:

    Is it a poor-quality radio rip, or a clean MP3?

    [edit] Found a good version. This song rocks, but I'm frustrated because for some reason I can't "sync" my brain to the rhythm of the song. I keep hearing the second beat as the first during the verse, and the third beat as the first during the chorus, and it ruins everything :(

    Lyrics to Survivalism:

    I should have listened to her
    So hard to keep control
    We kept on eating but
    Our bloated belly's still not full
    She gave us all she had but
    We went and took some more
    Can't seem to shut her legs
    Our mother nature is a whore


    (chorus):
    I got my propaganda
    I got revisionism
    I got my violence
    In hi-def ultra-realism
    All a part of this great nation
    I got my fist
    I got my plan
    I got survivalism

    Hypnotic sound of sirens
    Echoing through the street
    The cocking of the rifles
    The marching of the feet
    You see your world on fire
    Don't try to act surprised
    We did just what you told us
    Lost our faith along the way and found ourselves believing your lies

    (chorus)

    (cut-up speech)

    All bruised and broken, bleeding
    She asked to take my hand
    I turned, just keep on walking
    But you'd do the same thing in the circumstance
    I'm sure you'll understand

    (chorus)

    (guitar solo)

    You got your pacifism - I got survivalism (repeat)

    Oh God. NiN concept album. Viral marketing. Return to noisy industrial.

    I'll let Ahnold describe how I feel.

    Not really impressed with my violent heart. I like the noisy industrial sound, but it lacks any real melody. I would have preffered singing instead of talking and maybe at least one good hook like Closer had.

    Just listened to MVH, the chorus sounds are damn chaotic (read: awesome).

    Not liking the lyrics though, almost like 10th grade poetry :(

    That was found days ago, I thought it was in this thread. That's the hand thing that's been popping up on the websites, I can't remember what they're calling it. It's cool as hell that it's in the end of the song though.

    It's like, the hand of god coming down or something. Hold on, I can't remember (haven't been keeping up with the viral stuff cause there's SO MUCH OF IT) let me find some info for you.

    Edit: Here we go. It's called "The Presence".

    Source: http://www.echoingthesound.org/phpbbx/viewtopic.php?t=20265

    some images of it that've been found:

    Yes, reminds me of a lyric about god's hand or something.

    *googles*

    "the clouds will part and the sky cracks open
    and god himself will reach his ****ing arm through
    just to push you down"

    aye thats it

    Second page links don't work, there are some rapidshare ones on 4 and 5, and this one might work too

    http://symphonyofnoise.com/nails/yearzero/

    Finished downloading it now... about to listen, impressions in a sec.

    Edit1: a minute in, and holy shit, this is much better than Survivalism. Also check this out (I'm reading through the ETS thread): its some type of analysis of the cricket track that was also found on the flash drive leak
    http://www.snapdrive.net/files/136952/cricket.jpg

    Edit2: i called the number from the spectrograph analysis of the cricket track... holy **** its creepy, its a wiretap of a girl screaming about how she's going to die. Call it, it's ****ing scary

    Edit3: Almost through the song, found the lyrics...
    Edit4: Done with the track. It's fantastic, not to mention very different from both MVH and Survivalism. This album is shaping up to be epic. The phone number from the cicada spectrograph is 216.333.1810. Call it, it's weird. They already found a new website from it:

    Can you say Orwellian?

    There was a second track that was released with that new song, which only has the sound of crickets on it. Running the song through one of those spectrograph thingies gives you a phone number, and calling the phone number gives you this:

    The website from the phone call is pretty interesting, it's got a long transcript (highlight to read) of an interrogation between a police officer and an "agent". I love this whole fictional backstory thing.

    I cannot ****ing wait for this. I do hope that there's maybe one or two more song leaks, tops, I want a lot of the album to be a surprise.

    Wouldn't it be awesome if the songs we got were remixes of the original tracks, so every single song on Year Zero is still fresh?

    Eraser beat me to it lol, I knew this was going to be the next "leak", because there were little icons next to it on the year zero website today.
