Question

Please dudes, i need help. On september 6, there is going to be a fucking awesome metal festival that i intend to go, and i am very exited because this never happens in my country. The problem is, i am underaged and my dad would have to take me. And i woudn't care at all if this was the only thing, but there are going to be Pornogrind, Black Metal and the least "worst", thrash metal (EXODUS IS PLAYING FUCK YEA). I don't know how to show him the lineup and shit... im scared that he shows the pornogrind stuff to my mom and i get grounded for a year for being "satanic and problematic" or whataever. PLZ HELP

You could:

1 - take your dad but have him wear earplugs and a blindfold the whole time. Tell him it's part of the fun.

2 - fly one of us over to pretend we're your dad. Several of us are probably old enough to be your dad, so this could work. Might have to pay us extra depending on who's playing.

3 - show your parents the lineup, and when they say no, freak out. Rip your clothes off, set fire to your hair, throw some blood or feces around, yell "Hail Satan", pretend to have a seizure... something to show them how important it is to you. This should convince them.

4 - scrap the whole thing until you're old enough to go by yourself.

5 - run away from home. Acquire fake ID. Join a traveling circus.

6 - tell them about the show and calmly explain that it would mean a lot to you if you could go, even though you don't necessarily agree with or enjoy all of the bands, because you love the music. 

 

I hope one of these fantastic options winds up working out for you.

 

 

(I should probably also add a disclaimer here: I don't actually advise running away from home and I don't recommend the thing with the fire and blood and feces. Try option 6.)

    • 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!
