Hey  Joanna

Would love to see some of the art. Yet  Fbook is a spy  some people unknowingly allow.  I keep a test account I look every few months  I will check it. It will point me to people I only talked to in person or on the  land phone. I dont contact or email online. It is the Perverse eye of the Myan calender's end teacher of despair; Marc Zucherburg.

So  please just post some on the forum we can see without the "Electric Eye"

Oh and hails and horns for using a real pic of you  for your icon. Many of "brave, brutal men" on here shy from it.

The nerve to be real is the essence of Metal at its beginnings. Thanks for keeping with that !

Yeh fuck Facefuck..oh and btw I think most of us have,  at some point,  either used our own pics as our avatar or at least posted our mugs on the pic threads  (though not obligatory and why would it be, it's a forum for discussion) ..hmm..I think the regulars here are among the 'realest' metal people I have had the pleasure of contact with, you can figure people out a little even through this medium...

He may have been talking about himself. We'll just wait and see if he has the "bravery" and "brutality" to update his own avatar.

That is a picture of me to the left. My face,my slight beer paunch, my general hairiness,  in front of my building. With any luck it will be the same one I wake up with tomorrow, Ive rather gotten use to it. Its not going to get me in the movies, but its really me.   I do wish Id painted that door before the picture.

I don't see a face... It looks like a lady in a black gown.

That's not really important, though. Your initial post in this thread was kind of ridiculous. I honestly think your business would benefit greatly from being active on Facebook. There's really nothing else that comes close in terms of sheer volume. If you're worried about privacy and surveillance in the digital age, sure, I understand that, but this forum is every bit as public and searchable as anything on FB, and it's contradictory to say you want to keep everything away from the "electric eye" and then imply that people on the forum are somehow being cowardly by not using their faces as avatars. I can think of several good reasons why people might want to keep themselves more anonymous. In any case, as Natassja said, most of us have pictures of ourselves, and our families and pets and homes, in several threads already. It's completely up to you whether you want to be that forthcoming.

or balls

Honey, I was born so poor  my neighbors where hogs waiting to be slaughtered. I was raised taught to slaughter what I eat after I raised it. Kill what you have cared for and eat them takes balls. Ive had the Balls to earn three College degrees , one in Audio with six professional audio certs, and pay cash  for an Olde Brick  Church. I record Metal and Advertise that I do in the Tennessee Delta section of the Bible Belt. Heretics still get arrested for absolutely nothing and drummed out of town. People in town walk up and ask me If I worship Satan. I usually reply where is my Lamborghini. Smiling at them instead of crossness, and rebuking their  rubbish smartly, takes balls. From where Ive come from, get to where I am and what I do takes more balls than most people will ever gather. I am the generation before you that endured and stood up to quite some amount of abuse for letting my metal hair, and the finger fly. Thanks to those like me , the hair and tattoos are now ok in many work places in America. Im not one of those with an office cubicle haircut feigning the fight for metal. I push that fight with a swagger and  bold smile with usually a un-nerving educated kindness to the religious right that would make Metal go away. I push the boundary every day.

Be careful in all endeavors bandwagon rallying behind anyone. If you listen to fools, the mob rules (Dio).

Earning my list of credentials not being born rich took extreme balls. Cordially, may you do so well sticking to your guns in art. It will not be an easy road. May you face less resistance from the inside than the generations that made the path.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
