    Not sure how he finds time to sleep.

    Jacob Bannon has another band, with a 12 song album completely finished and recorded, ready to release. Waiting on him to finalize the art for it, which he's "about 25% into". Band name and album details TBA though the album is expected before the end of the year.

    Lineup:

    Jacob Bannon
    Shane Embury (Napalm Death)
    Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth)
    Jesper Liveröd (Nasum)

    Quarantine blows but it's been good for heavy music.

    It really is. Calcified Youth is damn catchy too. Love hearing vocals like that from Jake.

    really mad at jacob right now. with how quickly deathwish booted Young And In The Way after the allegations of sexual assault came out against them, the fact that converge had jeff whitehead, a known and convicted abuser, design a shirt for them is fucking gross. and it's not even a good design! not that it would matter if it's good, but jesus christ.

    @eversonpoe

    Just read about his incident based on your post. At any point do you feel someone has paid their debt to society or does more factor into it (contrition, crime, etc.?)

    it really depends. there's also a lot of controversy surrounding the band Inquisition right now. their new album came out yesterday and the label is rightfully getting dragged for partnering with them because one of the members is a pedophile who was convicted on child pornography charges (had GIGABYTES of it). child pornography is not even remotely a victimless crime, because the fact that the photographs/videos exist in the first place is an act of sexual assault/abuse. that guy literally did NOTHING to atone for his actions, just laid low and stayed quiet for a bit and now there's a new album out.

    i don't know if jeff whitehead did anything to atone for his actions. i don't know if he's a better person now than he was. i do think people can change but when you do something that heinous and awful, you have a LOT of atonement to do, and most people just want a quick bit of forgiveness so they can try to go back to "normal", not taking into account the effect their actions had on the people whose lives they potentially ruined. and whether or not he did do the work and is a better person now, bannon & co still could have chosen not to work with him. jacob is one of the most talented visual artists alive today (in my opinion) and they commissioned this guy to make an extremely mediocre piece of art that they approved for a t-shirt? absolutely didn't need to happen.

    contrition is a huge factor and it's impossible to know if someone actually regrets and wants to atone for their actions when it comes to something like this, or if they simply regret getting caught and having it be out in public.

    as a survivor of both assault and abuse, i have extremely strong feelings on this. and while i don't expect everyone to completely agree with me, i expect them to at least try to see it from my perspective, and from the perspectives of the people who were so negatively affected by the actions of these people.
