The tours keep on coming. SCALE THE SUMMIT set to run a headlining gig early next year!

Looks like I’ll be able to see them! You should too!

HeavyBlogIsHeavy says: Scale The Summit have been touring fairly extensive the last couple of years, supporting pretty much every band ever. These instrumetallers really do get around, and it was only a matter of time before they had their own headlining tour. It had never occurred to me until now that these dudes never had a proper national headlining tour before, but in early 2012, they’ll be taking to the road with Elitist and performing nightly 70-minute sets with material from all three albums. Huzzah!

Wow, 70 minute sets? I better get ready for this because they are going to blow my mind for 70 minutes straight.

NEW SONG! PSYCROPTIC – Carriers of the Plague

Try not to spill your coffee all over you while you listen to this and head bang. I’m not reliable if you burn yourself. Neither is Psycroptic or Nuclear Blast. So don’t be dumb. Anywho, this song is pretty good. I’m definitely looking forward to the new album. “The Inherited Repression” out Feb. 2012

METAL ALLIANCE 2012 TOUR: DevilDriver, The Faceless, Dying Fetus, Job For A Cowboy, 3 Inches of Blood, and Impending Doom

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

THIS IS AWESOME!!! I’ve seen every band live at least once already (Except for The Faceless) and I know that each and every one of them put on a great show. Good thing is, they are swinging near by and I will get a chance to see this show. We so excited!

As Hell Retreats – Desperation

[-The boy finds no comfort. There is nothing left for him in this world, or so he thinks.]

Coming to terms as an insatiable man
After searching for all these years.
It’s time to admit of my ignorance;
I will not find her comfort here.
I’ve wasted my youth searching for lies.
No, nothing can save me now.

With eyes closed, I speculate on what I called my own
Before death decided to play its role.
With eyes open, I realize that this world has nothing to offer
All I have is hate!
This world has nothing to offer.
And I have no faith!
This world has nothing to offer,
So I will forsake my life!
And I will end it tonight!
This is my volition!
