Thanks for bringing out the nostalgia. I haven't listened to these guys in probably 6 years.

I've seen all three bands on that lineup at least once. I would ditch it if A) I wasn't in the wedding party for one of my best mates, and B) my girlfriend wasn't good friends with the bride. I'm sad...

Same thing happened for me about two years ago. I decided any traces of my high school aged self needed to be eradicated from the internet. I was into so much cringey stuff back then...

Off all the shit in the video, the flatland BMX part is what caught me off guard the most.

I'm sad that my friend has to get married the same day the Melvins and Napalm Death are in Chicago in April, but y'know adult obligations and such.

So Seamus (the guy who's listed as the drummer on both their Facebook page and Wikipedia and is on the left in the photo) isn't an official member of the band? The dude kicks ass in Vattnet Viskar...

The Brickstone APA is pretty solid, but I just like the mosaic hop taste you get from Lizard King more than Zombie Dust-like flavor you get from Brickstone.

I haven't had Painted Turtle yet, but I...

Pipeworks Lizard King might be my favorite pale ale in the Chicago market at the moment.

Agreed. Coma Ecliptic felt like a step in the right direction after Parallax, but it still felt vapid and lacking in some regards. They'll never top Colors, IMO.

I was gonna say. Have fun at the show!

Overall, cost was a deciding factor when they came through here. I couldn't justify $48 w/ fees when Minsk was $10 at a much better venue.

You just need to read their blog to know they're a pretentious and egotistical bunch . With that being said thought, I'll give this a listen because I've dug a lot of their stuff in the past.

Kinda how I felt about this tour as well, but I just have no desire to see Lamb of God at this point than thinking they suck. I would have gone for Deafheaven and Power Trip, but tickets were too...

Random new music update:

The new Seven Sisters of Sleep album is amazing. Anyone who likes sludge metal will probably find it killer.

The new Black Tusk is another Black Tusk album. That isn't a...

I mean...I also have never been a part of any sort of musical ensemble nor have any musical experience in my life...so my opinion is null and avoid anyway.

I liked Whiplash.

So far, I'm hating this album. However, if Max put out an album entirely like the outro of 17 coked up speeding, i'd eat it up.
