This morning’s Random Lyric of the Day is another track with no lyrics. That’s OK though. It’s still a good one, I promise.
Today’s Random Lyric of the Day has no lyrics at all. So sit back, relax and enjoy the soothing tones that Gojira has made for you. There is a whale that sings but I can’t interpret the lyrics.
Thanks for being honest man, best of luck to you in the future. Howard explains himself:
“Well, I guess I will shed a little light without going too deep. As some of you may know, I’ve had a pretty interesting couple of years to say the least battling with some personal issues. One of the low points being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes that went unchecked for years. The rest of the band stuck with me through it, and to be honest they are the ones that kept me going. The whole experience definitely put a scare in me.
“Recently we’ve all been in writing mode but somehow I couldn’t get excited about the new album and all the touring that would go with it. The guys saw it before I did. In hindsight I now realize that my heart wasn’t in it. I have had an amazing decade with KSE. I love Justin, Mike D, Joel and Adam for hanging in there and standing by me no matter how bad it was. I have so many good memories, and those are the ones that I will keep. Will I be involved in music again? Sure, I have been in bands for a little over half my life, can’t stop now. Until then, get the new KsE album, it’s going to be good. Thanks everyone for letting me try to entertain you, and I wish myself well in my future endeavors. Gone fishin’ Howard.”
THRASH MOTHERFUCKER! Learn a track from Revocation and Evile!
I’m unfamiliar with Nicole Bogner’s work and her previous band Visions of Atlantis. However, 27 is incredibly too young. Rest in peace Nicole Bogner. A memorial has been set up on Facebook for her.
It’s always sad when a brother or sister of metal is taken away from us.
This weeks black metal series brings you some quality blasphemous music from Endstille, Thy Serpent and Hellhammer. True kvlt classics. Enjoy.
Rae Amitay from Metal Review wrote out this amazing blog post about David Gold, his legacy and the people he knew. Band mates express their feelings and thoughts and it’s just an extremely touching and emotional article. Here is just a small sample from the post, click here to read the rest. I highly recommend reading this.
On November 27th, David Gold gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. I’d responded to his announcement about needing a new drummer for Woods of Ypres, and after a few days of discussing my commitment, ability, and willingness to relocate to Canada, David offered me the position with open arms and incredible enthusiasm. Over the course of the next few weeks, I learned to play Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light as I continued to build my friendship with David and prepare for our upcoming shows in the UK. Upon hearing the album for the first time, I knew it was David’s masterpiece, and the most stunning Woods album to date. I am eternally grateful that I was able to tell him how much I loved his music. For nearly a month, I lived and breathed that record. When I wasn’t playing through it, I was listening to it, always moved by David’s sorrowful voice and beautiful songwriting. Although today marked the first time I’ve been able to listen to Woods 5 since his passing, the songs never stopped running through my head. It hurts me so much that I will never be able to perform these songs with him.
RIP David Gold, I never got the chance to tell you how much I enjoy the album but I love it. Thank you for everything. Check out the review for Woods V: Grey Skies and Electric Light here.
The up and coming band Van Halen will be returning to the spotlight in 2012. Their new album, A Different Kind of Truth, is sure to be a huge chart topper and will help sell out arenas the size of small countries. The album will hit store shelves on February 7th. Tour date itinerary after the jump. GET IT!??!
Death, Grind, Tech and total annihilation. Oblivionized are brutal; the speed and technicality of the music is so much that you probably will need to listen to the EP a couple of times just to absorb and understand what the fuck is going on. Mastered by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed) and if you like what you hear, check out the bands merch here and make sure you go like their Facebook page!
It’s so good Wayne and Garth support it!
Wormrot, The epic 3 piece grind band from Singapore, were playing a New Year’s Eve show in Kuala Lumpur. While at their hotel, the Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor (Selangor Islamic Religious Department) came into their room. Azean, the band’s manager, says:
“After several questions and telling us that it is wrong for unmarried Muslim men and women to be in one room, they took our passports and we were taken to the police station to give our statements and call someone to bail us.”
“5 of us were taken into custody. Arif [vocals], Rasyid [guitars], Fit [drums], his girlfriend who is Arif’s little sister and myself. Rasyid’s girlfriend was not taken into custody coz she’s not Muslim and Fiaz [Asilent bassist, with them at the time] was from another room. When we got out of the hotel to be escorted into the police lorry which already has some couples who were caught earlier than us, around 30 – 40 more people from JAIS, passerby and maybe some people from the media took pictures of us as though they had busted the most biggest crime for the night. We were taken to the Taman Muda Police Station and had to sit on the floor to wait for the organizer, Emi, to come and bail us out. Emi arrived at 4am and he had talked to one of the JAIS staff. At around 4.15am, we were taken to another police station as there was no high ranking officer to do up the reports. Again everyone had to be escorted into the lorry to be driven to Pandan Indah Police Station. However, when we arrived there, we were still held in the lorry as the high ranking staff from JAIS have not arrived. At around 5am, when they finally arrived, we thought that we will be taken into the police station for our statements. But… in the end… we were let off with just a warning. We were nearly fined $3000 MYR ($950 USD) per person if Emi did not call his lawyer up and we being Singaporeans. Plus we weren’t doing any sexual intercourse when they entered our room.
“By the time Emi sent us back to our hotel, it was already 5.30am. We were beyond exhausted as we had been awake since 5am the day before, performing and then the hotel drama.”
“Please do not think badly of the religion. Every religion is peaceful. Like I’ve said before, in every religion, there’s always some people who are extremists. Don’t condemn the religion just because of these jokers.
“We would like to thank Emi, Tiong, Dyn and all our friends who had given us the best hospitality anyone could ever asked for. And all the grinders who came down for the show to support all the bands. This is the best New Year celebration for us!”
Good morning. Today’s Random Lyric of the Day is fitting if you hit the bars/bottle last night. Black Label Society’s Hangover Music album is a good one and this track is one of my favorite from that album. Enjoy!
