    there's a difference between him living his life and him being given his platform back.

    Absolutely agree. What about ex-gang members that turn thwir lives around and let themselves be a cautionary tale? They make money off of speaking engagements or books and have a platform. Should they not? John Lennon beat his wife but people still listen to The Beatles. These acts are clearly not 1:1, but they certainly share similarities.

    I'm not giving any of my money to AILD, but it's a fine song.

    ex-gang members who turn their lives around and use that change to help inspire people (which i am all for) are very different from the vocalist of a band who tried to have his wife killed rejoining that band. is he using the music to caution others away from getting so fucked up that they contract a killer to eliminate their spouses? because if not, he doesn't deserve a platform that's going to get him fame and attention.

    also, i don't listen to the beatles, largely because of that fact. no joke. i was never huge into the beatles, but as soon as i found that out about john lennon, i stopped voluntarily listening to them.

    anyway, i'm not trying to tell you you're a bad person for listening to them, and i have no issue with you in general, i just wanted to talk this out!

    From what's been reported, Timmy is pursuing his Master's in social work which, while maybe not directly, could be considered using change to inspire people. Being their vocalist shouldn't mean he needs to write about the situation or speak specifically about it during shows. If he's doing stuff in the periphery to show he's changed and is trying to better himself/others, good for him.

    I appreciate the back and forth here. No reason a difference of opinion should have to be any different.

    I saw Daughters last night. Despite being stupidly full of the cold and so unable to get properly loose with it, I had a great time. What an exceptional band. Alexis seemed like he was in a state of fury all night, though, and not in a performance way. Regardless, they killed it.

    Chaos & Carnage tour opener in NJ was a mess but i'm glad I went. Called for set times as always that day. Girl gave me wrong info, so I missed most of Fallujah. They are great though and their drummer doesn't appear to be an actual human being, but more of a machine.

    Then Spite came on, completely out of order from what I was told and how the bill showed. They were ok deathcore. Singer is very entertaining though.

    Then Revocation blew my mind. What a phenomenal band. So talented and varied for a technical death metal band.

    Dying Fetus after that. Wow, really not my thing. Brutal to stand there through. Set went on forever and everything sounded the same and stuck in the early 90's. I guess some of the Entombed type riffs were pretty good actually. But everything...meh.

    Now it's almost midnight and Whitechapel haven't even started yet! They were destroying up there, but as you can imagine alot of the crowd left b/c of the absurdity of how late this show was stretching. They sounded massive, and I was enjoying them, but I had to exit after 6-7 songs. Just too late a night.

    And this is why these massive extreme metal packages tour are usually to be avoided. This one supposedly started at 5pm! Apparently a local opener was first, and that's before all this:

    Doesn't hit as hard as their last one for me, but it's still really good.

    Newly released? It was on the Japanese release of the album. I've had it for years digitally. I LOVE it. I hate it's not on the proper album. The end outro is amazing.

    fwiw, i recorded all of Vein's opening set at the Killswitch show tonight. Weird seeing them with a barrier, but they worked it the best they could I felt. Still pretty chaotic up there.

    I love their energy. I hope they put out new music soon and get on some bigger-named tours.

    And totally unrelated, does anyone else follow Jordan Buckley on Instagram? He posted this a couple days back and I hope it's a not-so-subtle hint that ETID is supporting TGI on 7/13!

    A post shared by on



    I cannot wait to get to LA for that show!

    Anapparatus - Retrospective

    These guys were a local Indianapolis band that broke up like a decade ago, but their stuff still holds up.

    So this show was fucking gold. Jacob was actually working their merch booth pretty much the entire night and somehow recognized me as I walked up. 'How's the baby doing?' 'Uhh...wow. He's great, thanks how are your sons?'

    So we got to chat for a while and he had a little pop up print shop so I managed to score a few artist proofs I've always wanted, so that was a quick $160 down. Then I went to the Cult Leader area and oh boy...so a few new shirt designs needed to be bought, and Anthony had a little binder of original sketches and prints, so had to drop another $100 to get a little sketch based on the 'A Patient Man' skull that was too slick.

    As for the bands, man almost all delivered. Numenorean was first and holy shit were they good, just fucking doom epic. Call of The Void was meh...basic thrash. Neck of The Woods...a local Vancouver band that I've never been able to catch live (always opening for bigger acts rolling through) but am I glad I did this time. They were one of the highlights...I'll post a video, get in to them immediately. Sort of a Gojira vibe at times...but damn good.

    Cult Leader was Cult Leader. Epic, sludgy...one of my favorite heavy bands, but I was choked with the festival format dictating they only got about 30 minutes before having to walk off. Got to talk to Anthony right after though so that was cool. Ken Mode was their usual spastic selves, and Xibalba was great. Converge...well, come on. Opened with Reptilian, blazed through their set and finished with Jane Doe. Strangely enough, I see a Pound video above and I shit you not, must've seen no less than about 5-6 Pound shirts last night. Good times. Getting home at 2am and being up at 6:30am to feed and change a baby though...not as good times.




    edit: Wait, watching that Pound video...they were at the show last night lol. I walked past them at least 2-3 times while they watched the bands haha.
