The "New Album" Thread - Susan McKagan says album is coming

Yes, something to take into consideration is that ear monitors in early 2000 were quite different than what they are today. Even Duff says that they sucked, and he doesn't have to sign that much and let alone on the range that Axl normally sings. I think that it was a combination of him trying to do a slight change of style in order to preserve his voice (he said something like that on the China Exchange interview) and some combination of ear monitors, being the first tour in a long time, etc. But he could still switch it on when he wanted, look at Oh My God, Nightrain, LALD. It was probably more intentional than not.

Very true, he definitely looks to preserve his voice and range as much as possible.

Monitors are weird. Like you said the early 2000's ones were a strange adjustment to artists used to using stage monitors (In the MJ 'this is it' doc he says it feels like someones pushing the sound in his ear).

So Axl used to struggle to hear himself over the blaring guitars and with that will have come some of his trademark 'rasp' but also damage.

I also think IEM are part of Slash's guitar tone change, in some recent guitar interview he talks about how the monitors allow him to hear his guitar on stage better than ever and dial in a tone that sounds perfect for him.

Interesting to think IEM's don't necessarily translate to better crowd 'tone'.

I'm watching Las Vegas 2001 that was uploaded on YT a while ago...

We need someone to tell us what happened to Axl's voice during 94-00...the change in his voice is impossible to overlook.

What a pitty the Appetitte for Distortion guy didn't ask Goldstein about it, or Matt about it...

 

Axl was always inconsistent, even in the 80s. Singing at his level would be pretty hard to maintain if your singing 2+ hours every 3 days on tour. Smoking, and generally being an asshole.   Add on the age and the odds that he probably blew his voice out in the early 90s and you Don’t need to ask what happened.

I've heard from very unreliable sources that the album is nearly finished.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 prevents the finishing touches on the album art.  With three covers planned, highlighting the lush, natural and varied beauty of Latin America - it just wasn't safe or feasible to travel to all the exotic locations to make sure it's just exactly perfect.

Even if that Olympic size hurdle were overcome - there's still the issue of finding an appropriate vendor.  The band is currently weighing the merits of making it a Starbucks or Trader Joe's exclusive release- domestically.

If there is enough vault stuff with lyrics for a full album without it, then no, Silkworms should not be included. Axl said in the chats that he removed the chorus which was the best part, so I'm not really interested that much.

It’s gone in The version with bumble on guitar.

do you all think these three would or possibly could dare to put Silkworms on the next album?

I'm not a fan of that song. I would hope they can do better than that on the 'new album'

I doubt it, maybe if the song was reworked from the ground up.

I like industrial music but it ain't the 90's anymore.

Although shifting trends means 90's/2000's are pretty in vogue atm.

So they could either release it now or in another 20 years :lol: .

Silkworms is like the Shotgun Blues of nuGNR lol kind of like, yeah it is a rocker and it exists but nobody is super excited to put it on :lol:

 

I do enjoy the quiet guitar parts in the break of the song though, especially in the RIR version

I absolutely reject this comparison - Shotgun Blues is a killer rocker, damn it!

Anyway, I don't think Silkworms should be included in any official releases any time soon. It would be stupid to include that but not OMG.
