  8. I saw Fate on December 15th 1984 at the 3,200 seat Capitol Theatre in Passaic NJ. They were in the #2 slot sandwiched in between openers Exciter and headliners Motörhead. I didn't really know where I was going not being a native Jersey boy and not having GPS or anything back then obviously, just a paper Hagstrom map. So we got there a little late and missed some of Exciter's set, probably just caught the last 4 songs. But we were there in our leather jackets, on the edge of our seats ready to rock for all of Fate. Would have been better in a hall without seats, but what are you gonna do? Moshing hadn't really caught on as the norm yet in '84 at metal shows, stage diving and moshpits were still a fairly new thing for us metal kids at that point, even though the punks had already been doing it for years by then. I wouldn't even attempt to rank all the bands I've seen over the years in any kind of an order, but needless to say Fate killed it. We left completley satisfied, it was quite a memorable show. I saw Youtube video of the current tour that a bunch of my friends have gone to see in various cities across the country, by all accounts it seems that 66 year old King and Co. have still got it. The only complaints I heard were about them having to sit through Kreator. Emblaze - Emblaze the Elevations, death metal US/Finland

  14. Just gonna put out there that DT has yet to make an album I haven't liked. Honestly wish more legacy bands took there approach of switching things up while maintaining your musical integrity than just trying to rehash the good old days in search of another magic album like the one that gave them their status. As much as I dislike modern Metallica, I've more respect for them than many of their contemporaries because they took a chance on a new sound and stuck with it. They're not trend hopping like many did when grunge hit or after the Black album when everyone tried to duplicate the success but quickly abandoned it when it didn't work out. For DT, if they had continued to make stuff in the vein of the trilogy, or the period immediately after, I think they would be a parody at this point. They haven't become that and stay relevant/interesting because they change it up. Bathory is another good example of a band (artist) that wasn't afraid to make a drastic change. I'd put Enslaved and Opeth in that category too. DT exists in their own world outside of our silly mortal dimension. The rules just don't apply to them the way they do to other bands, and that's just unheard of for a band 30 years old. They have full license from me to do whatever the fuck floats their boat short of an Illud-level debacle for the rest of time. May not be an AOTY situation, but they won't fail to get my money.

  16. Usually I can't stand rerecorded stuff but this is really well done! Cancer- To The Gory End Darkthrone - Astral Fortress Death - Individual Thought Patterns Sodom - 40 Years At War After spending a week mainly listening to new and generally derivative or third rate stuff*, it's always a pleasure to go back to the classics. *Darkthrone doesn't count as new coz Fenriz and Nocturno Culto exist in a pocket dimension where it's always 1987 and much like the mighty gods of that era, know how to write fucking awesome heavy metal!

    What are you drinking?

    I succumbed to hype. Founder's French Toast Bastard; Vanilla Cinnamon Maple bourbon barrel aged scotch ale. Whaaat????! This shit is sick. As fortune would have it, my wife picked up some decadent cinnamon rolls-an absolute devil's duo if there ever was one.

  18. Gave a few a shot today. Kampfar - Til Klovers Takt - yup. Definitely a purchase. Dream Unending - Song of Salvation - I dunno. I dig most of it, but not an instant purchase. Now it's on to some classics: Def Leppard - first 2 Mercyful Fate - first 2 Paradise Lost - Icon Sumerlands - Sumerlands

  25. Yeah, if I had a choice... Hard agree They were everything I wanted when I saw them in August. I was too young to see them in the 80's, but I can imagine that they killed.

  33. Sporadically I've revisited and upgraded classic hard rock. Glad Jon convinced me to dig into Queen's early discography. Their first 3 are my favorite 1-2-3 punch. Just so many brilliant, quirky, weird and pretentiously grandiose ideas packed into these songs. Queen Queen/II Queen/Sheer Heart Attack And Thin Lizzy/Jailbreak

  38. Didn't know what you were referring to so I had to Google this 70's Laurel Canyon thing. "Laurel Canyon was home to various members of the Byrds, the Doors, Love and Buffalo Springfield; to Frank Zappa, the Mamas & the Papas, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and Joni Mitchell. It gave us folk rock, country rock and a wealth of singer-songwriters." Haha if they would have included the Dead, the Eagles, Toto and the Doobie Bros they would have just listed pretty much every California band I hated from the 70's. Except for the Mamas & the Papas, I have fond memories of liking them as a kid, and I did have that one 32 million selling Joe Walsh & the Eagles album in high school too. Yes yuge downtuned riffage, check. 5 pound ceramic bong on the end table, check. Punk attitude, check. But nuanced? No can do. I guess I'm that asshole who doesn't have the patience to wait for them to get to the point. Celtic Frost - Morbid Tales & Emperor's Return comp Celtic Frost - Vanity/Nemesis

  39. Wo Fat - The Singularity, took FA's and Navy's suggestion and started my day with KJ-S/T, and now moving on to this one with the pretty cover that Marky Mark mentioned as one of his '22 favorites the other day. Gotta be honest I'm getting pretty bored with this 30 minutes in, not sure if I'll be able to hang with these Texans for another 45. It's serviceable stoner rock, nothing really wrong with it, but it doesn't really have the juice or pack the same punch as the top notch stoner bands bring. King Buffalo ‎- Dead Star, guess while I'm stoning it up here this morning I might as well check out this other stoner band Mark & Jon-boy have been gushing about. (that's just a joke guys, I know you stopped well short of gushing) Jesus Fucking Christ you guys are nuts, this record is more boring than watching paint dry. I can feel myself aging waiting for it to be over. 3/10. Maybe if I was actually stoned I could get into it? Not gonna do that because we have to go to my sisters for stupid turkey day in a couple more hours here. Guess I dIdn't know how good I had it with the Wo Fat. Sorry guys, no hard feelings, but I'm gonna have to put your boys King Buffalo in the bites the big one category. Circus of Power - Vices, NY 1990, alright then guess I'll just have to time travel back and enjoy an old favorite from the year my daughter was born. Don't stop believing, hold onto that feeling holmes.
