Valient Thorr/Holy Grail/Royal Thunder/The Kickass were all an amazing party tonight! Don't miss this tour!!
I am also fucking loving this band more and more
I finally got to see Liturgy yesterday afternoon. I've been wanting to see them for awhile now since their latest album was one of my favorite albums released last year. There were only like 50 people in the audience, which isn't terribly surprising since they were on at 1pm and they were te first band to play that day, but it didn't seem to bother them. They sounded pretty good too. I didn't know that their drummer had left the band, so it was odd to see them performing with a drum track. I hope they find a replacement soon because it sounds off without live drums. Got to talk with them after their set and they seem like pretty cool guys. Real appreciative to the people that showed up for their set.
Damn, that really sucks about the drummer, he was the best part when i saw them.
Yeah, there wasn't a drummer for the Primavera set either. It kinda made it seem a little unprofessional to just play with a drum track. The two guys completely slayed the audience though, people were still with pure shock and amazement.
I was at one of the first ever Eagles of Death Metal shows, and instead of Josh being there on drums they had the drum tracks on a CD being played by a discman sitting on a chair next to Jesse. Several times he stopped songs and started the tracks over again.
Randy Blythe from LOG was arrested in Prague and charged with manslaughter the other day
guess i should be glad i passed on getting tickets to their show with gojira this september.
That waltz in The Demon's Name is Surveillance is a dick.
As seen on EyeHateGod and Arson Anthem's FB page
Andy Rehfeldt always does a bitchin job on these silly things
And in other news, there's a new Old Man Gloom album out! I have it, but haven't listened to it yet.
The Old Man Gloom album is amazing. I listened once and immediately loved it.
There's also a new Agalloch EP out there, folks. Get on it right away, it's fantastic.
I guess the new Baroness leaked but I couldn't find a link...BUT NPR is streaming it. I'm on the second song now I really like it:
It's very different in that it's much less instrumental-focused, but the heart is all there.

The album is fucking spectacular!
1. I am really excited for the new Krallice album.
2. The new Dawnbringer album, Into the Lair of the Sun God, totally rules. Any album about a warrior who decides to kill the sun is worth a listen in my book.
Their last album Nucleus is really good too
News for anyone into the doom metal giants :

The Mutilation Rites album is fucking awesome. Check out Empyrean here:
This was finally repressed, so happy I found a copy today
apparently Baroness were in a bus crash. 3 of their members are in the hospital.
Yeah, John has a broken arm and leg. It's sad, but luckily no one was seriously injured or killed
Also I am so ungodly excited to see Earth with fucking Eagle Twin at my favorite venue! I figured Eagle Twin was just doing a one off at that Southern Lord festival
Baroness are in good spirits.
The new Ash Borer and Nachtmystium albums absolutely slay. As of now, I'm partial to the former, but only by a hair. That is all.
