I spent 30 mins psycho analysing my gf on Friday whilst I was drunk and in the process seemed to have convinced her to change jobs!

So...is that a good thing?

Yeah, she is unhappy in the role, not coping with the stress despite the extra cash so seems logical to me she should put her own well being first.

I suppose drunk would be a dramatic overstatement but eh whatever. Upon reflection I am rather proud of the restraint I demonstrated earlier today. When the bfmv fan asks if the reason you don't like them is because they're "too heavy" I would normally be insulted. It would probably be enough for me to launch into a long-winded rant about how they are not even metal. Instead I was able to continue the conversation as if I weren't thinking the other bloke was woefully lacking in their metal education. Perhaps, if he's there, next week I'll mention this place to him and see if we can't save the poor lad.

You must be drunk, to think about bringing that kind of riff-raff around here... :D

King Parrot is taking the stage opening for Voivod right now, and all I have to say is that you Aussie's all look like you're all still just a frilly blouse away from looking like the pirates and criminals you descended from. I posted this musing here because yes, I have been drinking, and there's no stopping in sight.

Not sure what you're talking about Red, they were great. High energy, fun grindcore with tons of riffs and great drumming with a good balance of silliness and madness. Voivod was on another plane of existence entirely though, and were quite simply the best live band I've ever seen. They've always been among my favorite bands, but this secured that in a big way. Holy shit.

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  


      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious. 

      4/5
