I’m kind of glad they changed it, because really, the only thing that pops into my head when I see the image affixed to this blog post is “What the fuck?” As in, what the fuck were you idiots fucking thinking, trying to glorify suicide vests like that? I’m guessing no thinking went into it […]

Revocation Touring With Oceano, Veil Of Maya

Revocation

Hmm. I will not analyze Revocation’s decision to join this tour. I will not question it.

Behemoth Beer Coming?

Behemoth

I hope the band beer trend comes to an end soon. Pretty soon, every fucking band’s gonna have their own brew. Add Behemoth to the growing list of bands who’ve aligned with booze purveyors.
