I wanted to say thanks to Lower Forty-Eight for allowing me to use a clip of their song for the introduction to my show for almost 50 shows.  THANKS BROS!!
 
I also wanted to say thanks to the Mass for letting me steal a clip of their song to make a new introduction.  THANKS BROS!!!
 
This past weekend I went to see accoustic sets from Mike Scheidt from YOB and Scott Kelly from Neurosis.  Really enjoyed that, mellow and peaceful to my brain.

I am kind of getting sick of getting gouged by mid to large venues.

Depravity: Serpentine Path (NY) (47:43-54:00)

 

Next up is some grindcore from Cellgraft, this is the longest song in their album, super speed and brutality, of course, from Florida.  If you don’t like them, it doesn’t matter, it is 16 seconds long.

Due to commuting 50 hours a day to and from work in this stupid Boston area traffic, and packing day and night to move across the country, I decided to take a month off from the show, and will be back in July. 

I will be back with Bands Not To Miss, and maybe an interview with some local metal head that feels like blabbering.

Take it easy or something!!  SEE YOU IN JULY!!!

Without food or water they are forced to eat the flesh of their kin while the heat from the approaching sun slowly cooks them alive. Eventually their screams reach out across the stars to awaken a slumbering Rift Wurm, which knocks them off course.
