About Rising Phoenix Music

Welcome to Rising Phoenix Music, a blog that's not so one-sided and biased, but has a variety of music that could suit the different tastes of others. I post and review heavy, brutal, loud, soft, relaxing, chill, and experimental music, so look through my archives, we might just have what you're looking for. I made this blog for the sake of these artists--new and old--to share my opinion on their music, and to tell you why I like it and why you might like it too! The artists and albums I post here all deserve to be known, praised, and remembered. I simply want to promote a vast variety of good music and to help out the bands and artists that deserve your attention, not piracy and stealing to deprive these bands of their income. I also believe that you cannot fully judge a band or musician until you have heard most of their material completely, which is why the albums are up for download. I urge you to buy the albums, buy their merchandise, go see them live (if they're still together) and support them!

In Absentia is one of my all time favourite albums... ever. This was the first album I ever heard from Porcupine Tree and when I heard the introduction to Blackest Eyes and then Steve Wilson's voice for the first time I fell in love with this band instantly. There is just such a pleasurable flow to this album and I never get tired of hearing it. This is also the first album with the amazing Gavin Harrison on drums, who I strive to one day be as good as. My favourite songs are Trains, The Sound Of Muzak, and the instrumental song Wedding Nails. I highly recommend this album to Progressive music lovers.
