Cheers guys, and greets from the land of death metal and vodka... these were sold before we left.

Equipment for sale / for sale: nickel-plated 308 bullet belts x2
« on: May 18, 2011, 10:49:08 AM »
The genuine article - nickel plated with high quality black chain links, with tips. Bought in Germany, nearly lost them going through Perth customs (customs officer says normally a permit is required but they were feeling nice).

Each belt is around 93cm long and has 64 bullets. Individual bullets can be removed to make it shorter, or the two belts can be joined together if you're more the viking-sized black metal dude.

$90 each or $160 for the pair. We're moving overseas at the end of next week so if you're interested please move fast! Call Dave on 0433 448 716.

I was just waiting for someone to fall of the rigging and kill themselves... idiots. The security just got sick of climbing up and telling them to come down after a while.

I dunno how they were thinking that people *wouldn't* climb on it when it's so obviously an ideal thing to climb on.

They didnt play Creeping Death (10 points for paying attention) - its the one song I really wanted that they didnt play. I thought they played awesome by the way. Cant be fucked typing much right now, but that was fucking killer! And the cunt that climbed to the top of the rigging - what a MAD FUCKER!!
Hit the Lights was a nice surprise, as was Breadfan.

Ah shit, I meant Seek and Destroy not Creeping Death. Right at the end I was like "which are they gonna play, it's either Seek or Creeping, please be Creeping please be Creeping please be Creeping" so of course it was Seek and Destroy.

But my comment still stands, I think the really old songs seemed kind of flat. Like they've bored with them or something.

Here's my review: Metallica were orright. Really old stuff they played (Hit The Lights, Four Horseman, even Creeping Death) didn't sound great, not much impact. Some stuff was fast, slow, speeding up, slowing down all over the place (Sad But True, Master of Puppets, Blackened). Their very newest stuff actually translated really well live, from a performance point of view they were the best songs of the night. But, they have far too many slow songs/ballads. And if James mentioned the "Metallica family" one more time I was going to stab someone.

Lamb of God were fucking amazing, played like motherfuckers, did not drop the ball for one second, had the crowd enthralled. After the set finished I was seriously considering trying to get hold of a standing area ticket for Saturday night just so I could see them again.

Baroness are a really great band, pity they were stuck on one side of the stage and couldn't move around more (I assume because of the gear set up around them for LOG and Metallica). I guess it's hard to have a whole heap of impact when you're playing with the house lights still up and daylight coming through from above. Still, impressive.

And $12 for a premix can of spirits and cola, OUCH.

Wanna know how come Metallica haven't released a good album since 1988? This is the best explanation ever:

I jest, of course. As it turns out, I pooh-poohed the gigs at length until a not-very-metal friend begged me to go with her on her spare ticket. Grudgingly I agreed but I'm actually kinda looking forward to it. I was at the last two shows at the Ent Centre (the first time as a proud fan, the second time at the behest of my mother, who was worried my little brother and his idiot mates would talk shit to a bikie and get pummelled).

Ruins were fucking awesome

Spewing I missed them - had to rush off at the end of Gallows cos I got a call from the hospital about a family member.

i thought Entrails Eradicated were great, so were all the usual suspects - Mhorgl, Cuntscrape, Grotesque... The way the crowd was moving for Gallows for Grace, I thought the walls in that tiny room might get pushed over, never mind the speaker stacks.

My only complaint was that the lighting was shit and I got fuck all in the way of good shots.

top top TOP day/night, bloody awesome. Huge kudos to Soundworks and all the bands who played.

party til you puke.

I swore last time I went years ago that I'd never go to another BDO and I fuckin HATE Tool but I've never seen Rammstein live, I love Deftones, Iggy Pop is fairly epic, and Andrew WK is awesome. So I might have to brave the hordes of hipsters.

I wanna work at YOUR office

ROFL, you prolly don't - I suffer through an inordinate amount of Foo Fighters and the like.

This is cool - it's a shame he's not bringing Igor for a Cavalera Conspiracy show but pretty much anything Max does is ok by me.

City of Fire's release is cool, it's on the lighter side so it gets in on the office music playlist.

album review sites - obv i check out what gets reviewed on, but also

If the review sounds good, I check out the band's myspace or youtube links or whatever. Have found some awesome shit that way including my current OMG FAVE BAND EVA Avicularia.

Moshtix did this last year - the Mayhem dates briefly appeared on their site, and this was long after the original tour was cancelled. I got all excited but then there was no news and it disappeared again.

Hahaha typical. The first international gig I'll miss because I'll be in Europe. It was bound to happen.

Saw Testament last year at Wacken and they killed, even at 2pm in the afternoon or whatever it was. This show should be killer.

General discussion / One million beers for metal
« on: April 16, 2010, 11:12:54 AM »
Sometimes funny shit happens when web developers drink. Here is one example: One Million Beers for Metal

Essentially, Leticia who runs, myself and another writer from the UK are trying to document one million beers being drunk in the name of metal. We're getting people to submit their photos and doing up a post each week with everything that's been submitted. After the second week we were up to 152 beers so we have quite a way to go but that's ok, it's all in the journey right?

So if you have a photo that involves beer and metal, submit it and be part of.. um... something funny.

I'm very sad, I love Type O Negative but I never got to see them live. We're having an all Type O day in the office in memory :(

apparently this is nergals missus

She's like Poland's version of Britney, and over there they are major tabloid fodder.

How fucking good were Goatwhore? Unreal  :headbang:

Oh, so Contrive is *that* Andrew Haug?

*checks* Wikipedia says yes.

fuck me, I came in and they were playing a song with no vocals, and I thought they were an instrumental group. thought "eh, they're a bit sloppy but they don't seem as bad as everyone says they are". But then they played two more songs. Yowzers.
