Bring Me The Horizon: Music Suggestion Of The Day 24/07/2017

Ok it sounds like we are going to propose a rather newbie group that already enjoys recognition from younger metal audiences to the point that is already been nominated and won several music awards from 2006 to today.

Arch Enemy: Music Suggestion Of The Day 22/07/2017

So today is finally the day that Kokdi will suggest a controversial yet nevertheless significant neo-thrash (if u don’t mind me saying) group that started throughout the NWOSDM hurricane of the 90’s to end up nowadays always with the frontwoman in mind and never the obvious and prime suspect Mr Michael Amott who also likes to play with others aka Spiritual Beggars (see related posts below)

New York Dolls: Music Suggestion of The Day 20/07/2017

Ok folks let’s see what the cat dragged in for today’s appetites… so it’s back to MyTop100List. For today Kokdi suggests something from the past, yet to date, unsurpassed. They may have set the standards, way back then, for glam/garage/punk (and not necessarily in that order), they may have influenced bands like Motley, TS (from heavy/hard rock subgenre), but what if I consider them as inspiration for acts like Bowie, or Ramones (hear the lipstick killers in our playlist just to be certain), that may have scored higher ranks in my list, but that happened for entirely other reasons than impact and influential potentials of the band from NY that made CBGB and many, many, many other things we love, what are today.

Fleetwood Mac Music Suggestion Of The Day 04/07/2017

I don’t know until now I haven’t even scratched this multi-platinum group that everyone seems to enjoy listening….I don’t even know why they are not present among the top100 acts of classic rock….I still can’t understand how I didn’t pick up on my brother Statler’s notions that peter green is maybe one of the most underrated yet incredible guitar player and infinite smash hits composer (Black Magic Woman, Albatross, The green manalishi; tunes that were covered with tremendous success by rock’s megatherions). Ok I get it; blame it all on Nicks…but no,that’s not the point at all!

Def Leppard: Music Suggestion Of The Day 21/06/2017

Last day’s suggestion really came up with today’s suggestion. Remembering Mutt Lange as one would say but this is not the case. Not until a dispute over the worth of rock subgenres like AOR made me furious about the fact that, without a doubt, some bands started out quite differently but ended up being the absolute trendsetters (or one of the biggest trendsetters) of their time. Today’s band fit that description.
They are well known for the 80’s megahits, or their one – arm drummer, but few considered their not-so-humble part in the great NWOBHM. Many disputed over the frenzy of guitar solos among groups like Raven or Tresspass but few doubted the capabilities of the Deaf Leopards that stormed English pubs during the last days of the 70’s an the first glorious years of the 80’s (who can forget the deminishing of a great song from 78's Getcha Rocks Off, to 80's weak Rocks Off).

SAXON: Music Suggestion Of The Day 20/06/2017

I don’t realy know why like Pirantello (wanting to write a story for each day of the year but never accomplished it), I haven’t, till today finished up a simple (as it sounded then) task, such as suggesting a 365 music suggestion post through Kokdi. As it turns out we’re apparently @ 260 (minus today’s) distinct and various suggestions expanding through mainly the Rock genre. So it is time to pick it up again (with the 1st suggestion - post of 2017!!!) remembering one of the classics that Kokdi always loved but failed to mention wherever a good conversation about the dynamics of NWoBHM were held.

PORNO: 20 years of (NOT) Choosing Life

Καλώς τονά…. Δεν ήθελα πρώτο (??) post του 2017 να είναι κάτι τόσο mainstream όσο και κάτι τόσο αποτυχημένο εισπρακτικά (κόστισε 18 μύρια, λέγεται ότι κερδίζει ως τώρα…1,2 μύρια… στην Ιταλία επί παραδείγματι), όσο και προφανώς όψιμα retro, μιλώντας τουλάχιστον για την γενιά μου, των 40 something δλδ. Αλλά δεδομένου ότι για να το δω σε μια ανθρώπινη ώρα (για τους κωλόγερους που διατείνονται νυχτοπούλια τούτο μοιάζει υποκριτικό έ?) έχασα το μεγαλύτερο παιχνίδι του CL (ελληνιστί Τσου Λου), έως κ σήμερα that is, πρέπει να σημειώσω πως τελικά δεν το μετάνιωσα καθόλου κ είδα κάτι που έμοιαζε υπερβολικά οικείο, ένα προσωπικό κλείσιμο του ματιού, για μια γενιά ηρώων που μιλούνε βλαχοσκωτσέζικα και θεοποιούν τον Κρόιφ, τον Ιγκυ, τον Σων Κόννερυ κ τον James Bond του, θέλουν να φύγουν, να πετύχουν κάπου άλλου, κάπου που να είναι πιο ανθρώπινα. Η τελευταία προφανής επιλογή τους ήταν αυτή που τους καταδίκαζε? η κατανάλωση η ίδια? ο ντεντερμινισμός των επιλογών και της ταξικής διαστρωμάτωσης? Χωρίς να μπορώ να το εντοπίσω, υπήρχε κάτι δυσοίωνο πριν 20 χρόνια που να εγγυούνταν την αποτυχία, την καταστροφή, ακόμα και αν είναι αυτό – καταστροφή….
