Angerfist A-Stomp-Stomp!

Apparently, Angerfist is coming out with a new album in November 2011. That will make a lot of young lily-white suburbanite American and European kids that think they’re all edgy and stuff take a stomp-around in an unnecessarily civil manner. Kind of like the kids at a Korn concert except possibly with better hygiene. Nonetheless, the news reminds us that we actually enjoyed the incessant pile driving of “Cannibal.” Here for your listening pleasure, kick back on your chair made of human skeletons and enjoy.

Angerfist is less harsh than they sound, but here’s a chaser anyway. “Ready for the Floor” is super catchy and comes off Hot Chip‘s 2008 Made in the Dark release.

Here are the lyrics:

Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now
Say it, say it, say it, say it, say it, say it, say it now

Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now
Say it, say it, say it, say it, say it, say it, say it now

Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now

Stand carving up the wall
Why don’t you open up at all?
I am ready, I am ready for a fall

Stand carving up the wall
Why don’t you open up at all?
We are ready, we are ready for the floor

I can’t hear your voice, do I have a choice?
I’m hoping with chance, you might take this dance
I can’t hear your voice, do I have a choice?
You’re sinking below, I’m using my force
I’m hoping with chance, you might take this dance
You’re my number one guy

Stand carving up the wall
Why don’t you open up at all?
I am ready, I am ready for a fall

Stand carving up the wall
Why don’t you open up at all?
We are ready, we are ready for the floor

I can’t hear your voice, do I have a choice?
You’re sinking below, I’m using my force
I’m hoping with chance, you might take this dance
You’re my number one guy
number one guy
number, number, number, number, number,
one, one, one, one, one guy

Number one guy .. stand carving up the wall
One, one guy.. why don’t you open up at all?
Number, number, number one .. I am ready, I am ready for a fall

Number one, number one .. stand carving up the wall
Number one, one, one .. why don’t you open up at all?
Guy, guy .. we are ready, we are ready for the floor

Number one guy .. stand carving up the wall
Number, number, one, one .. why don’t you open up at all?
Guy .. I am ready, I am ready for a fall

You’re my number one guy, number one .. stand carving up the wall
Number, number, one, one .. why don’t you open up at all?
Number, number, one, one .. we are ready for the floor

We weren’t sure what Alexis Taylor, the band’s lead vocalist, was talking about when he keeps repeating “You’re my number one guy,” so we did a little research. Here’s what Alexis had to say about it in an interview with Fader, the online entertainment site.

“I really like this line in the first Batman film, not the very first one that was made, but the first Tim Burton Batman film. Jack Palance tells Jack Nicholson, “You are my number one guy.” And it’s a completely false statement. The very next scene is Jack Nicholson being set up and about to be killed off by Jack Palance’s character. Then he survives all of this and he comes back as the Joker and he kills Jack Palance. And later on he quotes Jack Palance, he says it to his goon, Bob the Goon, “You are my number one guy.” He says it in a really funny, mimicking way. I quite like it. He’s not only mimicking the character in the film, he’s also mimicking Jack Palance as an actor. He’s mimicking his melodramatic style. That line has always stuck with me.”
