Hence, I didn’t recognize the resemblance between the new Chelsea Grin song “Angels Shall Sin, Demons Shall Pray” and a song by Born of Osiris, called “Ascension.”
That’s also due in part to my not listening to shit like Born of Osiris, either.
I don’t have time to listen to good bands; how the fuck am I going to get around to sampling the mediocre as well as the pure shit, huh?
Chelsea Grin guitarist Jason Richardson — a former member of Born of Osiris — denies the claims of said bloggers in a Twitter post that went live today.
“Lee [McKinney] wrote ascension, I helped with the chords and bass on the chorus. Dan [Jones] wrote our new song, get your facts straight. Fuck off @metalsucks.”
This Jason Richardson isn’t that bad. I don’t know his music at all, but his views on metal blogging are certainly refreshing.
