    Default Official Chevelle Thread

    The last thread I could find on Chevelle was started in 2002, the last post in 2005, so I thought it would be OK to start a new one. A friend gave me copies of their first two cd's years ago. I dug The Red and Send the Pain Below. Didn't give the other songs much of a chance. Saw them open for STP a few months ago, thought they were great. My cousin likes them, gave me Vena Sera last week. I'm really impressed. To me, they are extremely heavy, extremely tight, and extremely melodic - heavy shit but you can totally hear what they're saying and sing along if you so desire. My favorites overall: The Clincher - Comfortable Liar. My favorites on Vena Sera: Well Enough Alone - Antisaint. I'm thinking this stuff might be a little heavy for most people around here, but I guess I'll soon find out. I'm really liking them, anyone else out there?

    I love 'em. Vena Sera has pretty much stayed in my cd player here lately. Like you say, they are really tight. Pete Loefflers voice is awesome. Excellent band.

    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    Saw Chevelle Sunday night at the Pageant in St. Louis. Sold out show. Played from 10:00 to 11:30. Crowd was insanely into it. The band played great. Very clean, tight, heavy band. Second time I've seen them. Can't wait to see them again. Lead singer/also lead guitarist, I believe his name is Pete, gave his guitar to someone in the front row at the end of the show. Great time.

    For some reason I really dig these guys, even though I am pretty much dead-set against modern music because of it's whiny, EMO overtones. Especially Send the Pain Below. Cool name for a band too.

    saw my boys again last Saturday. sold out show here in St. Louis. show was fucking rockin', great. my wife surprised me the next morning; she bought their new cd, La Gargola for me. most cd's you have to listen to a few times to get the vibe. for me, not this one. loved of from the start. absolutely love it. already memorizing a few names of songs: Ouiji Board = awesome. Island = awesome. take out the gunman = good luck not liking this one - so catchy. many more that i love, only has been a few days. if you like heavy, hard, melodic shit - give it a try.
