View Full Version : The Nat's Infinite Flight Cancellation Road Trip Set List

I did something like this once before and called it "Virtual Tour through The Nat's MP3 Player", or something like that, and some folks seemed to like it, so... This time, though, instead of my MP3 player, the source will be this flash drive I sometimes use to transfer files between work and home (and friends as well). It has mostly 2013 stuff on it, with a few albums from last year. I'm roughly an hour into the trip so far, and the set list was so awesome I just had to do this. May Satan have mercy on all your souls...

Incidentally, the thread title comes from the fact that I was in Birmingham, AL for a few days this week and was supposed to fly home tonight, but my flight got canceled and like a stubborn mule / true idiot, I decided to rent a car and drive home instead doing the usual gig of taking a cab, checking into a hotel, getting a few hours of sleep and then getting another cab to the airport when the sun comes up and taking two flights home, only to arrive home exhausted sometime in the late afternoon at best. Fuck that. Instead, I chose to muscle through an eleven-hour drive and get home on my own terms. Hence, this thread, which probably no one will read because it's getting posted in the middle of the night. But fuck it - I'm bored and the music is awesome so let's fucking do this.

(By the way, I'll probably post in bunches when I take breaks, so don't worry about the ol' Nat texting and driving. :))

Indian Handcrafts

Kinda metal, kinda not. Still pretty interesting. Me Likey.

Leave No Cross Unturned
The Underground Resistance
Darkthrone

Having heard great things, I grabbed this several months ago. I guess I still don't really get this band. They're OK, I guess, but really not in my wheelhouse. Good but not great.

Last song before I started my first break. Now, back to the drive. More later...

Pretty much all Light Bearer is like that.
Indeed. Two adjectives that immediately come to mind are "beautiful" and "intense".

Boden
Mass V
Amenra
Just as I was recalling that Amenra are on Neurot Records and that Steve Von Til was wearing an Amenra hoodie before the (fucking godly) Neurosis set I saw last December, on came:

All Is Found...In Time
Honor Found in Decay
Neurosis

:lol:

Another epic post-rock masterpiece. :bliss:

Loner

Fun song for a bunch of old farts, let alone old farts called Black Sabbath.

'sblood
Sky Burial
Inter Arma

A brutal meat grinder of a track. So awesome. :drool:

Amon Amarth

Looks like AA has redeemed the last phoned-in album a bit here. By the way, I love the way this track begins. :)

Here Is the Grave

Yup - I like this track a whole lot, too.

Fragments of Time
Random Access Memories
Daft Punk

After an eight-year hiaitus (or however the fuck long it's been), for one of my favorite electronic acts of all time to come back and squeeze out this epic shitbrick of an album is almost unforgivable. One of the biggest musical disappointments for me in a long time. Makes me so sad. :(

Resurrection Pyre
Bu-Tik
ChthoniC

Now this ain't bad. It ain't spectacular, but it ain't bad.

Natrlhi
08-31-2013, 08:17 AM
A few more:

Giving Their Heir to the Masses
Suffocating in the Swarm of Cranes

Of all the HoF sets I've seen, I don't believe any have ever included this gem. Does want.

Storm Below the Mountain
Blacklands
Castle

I like this band better with the bass player on vox.

Your Heartwarming Story Makes Me Sick
Entrench

Not a bad album by any stretch, but not truly amazing either, IMO.

The quintessential Clutch. :rocker:

Flashback

Now this is some classic-sounding Sabbath right here, folks. :agree:

White Storm of Teeth
III: Tabula Rasa or Death and the Seven Pillars
The Devil's Blood

Mesmerizing.

...And the World Is As Night to Them
Furnace
Batillus

Now this song is the jam, son. Check it out when the shit really hits the fan at around 4:35. :eek: :bricks:

All right, kids. That about does it for me. I'm almost home and I gotta take care of business. At any rate, if nothing else, this thread has made up for about nine months worth of missing posts by yours truly in the "Now Playing" and "2013" threads, as this is a pretty good representation of what I've been listening to all year, and my opinions on the majority of it.

Now if I could only get caught up this easily on my J:M reviews and Best of 2012 thread... ;)
