Re: gaming As for games, I like the Battlefront series, Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Forza Motorsport, Project Gotham Racing 2, Modern Warfare 2, Super Smash Brothers Melee and Brawl, and Starfox Assault. As for playing with avid gamers...I hate any and all games regardless of how fun they were before.

Re: gaming My friend has been trying his damnedest to get me into CoD but I'm a die hard Halo fan. I like that you can kill people easier in CoD and that you can get dogs because dogs kick ass, but Halo is Halo. I'd like to spend more time gaming but I've been busy working on our next two releases, and building a guitar.

It's funny. When I was growing up all we had was NES and SNES and we longed for the day when graphics would get better. They have, but sadly the games of today lack good stories. I find it harder and harder to find games that are actually worth playing. Dragon Age is a game I love, which is surprising because I hate RPG's. I was hesitant to get the sequel because the demo sucked jesus christ monkey balls, but my wife's friend is letting me borrow her copy. I hope it's rad.

Actually, Clone Wars was a kind of interesting game and story given that it was basically made to cash in on Star Wars' Attack Of The Clones. A lot of these horror video games have really stupid plots though.

Re: gaming I'm a HUGE fan of anything Lego related in video games (except for Indiana Jones). I'm planning on getting the Wii version of Clone Wars when the price comes down. I'm still waiting for the second Lego Harry Potter game to come out. The first was fun, if unoriginal.

But I do like Lego Star Wars. It's like Rowan Atkinson in cartoons. Speaking of which, the new Johnny English movie is playing today.

Re: gaming

I just realized that I misread your prior statement, lol. I played a demo for the Clone Wars game you spoke of and didn't care for the controls or general game play. Too bad too. I just saw a poster for Johnny English on the IMDB. I'm a HUGE Rowan Atkinson fan and I'll have to see it. I recently came across a one man show he did in the 80's at some east coast college. It was pretty funny, I can't recall the name however. I agree with your comparison too. :)

Re: gaming And it works, too! I saw a couple of his older skits and they were also quite funny, especially his Christmas one. I didn't care for Mr. Bean's holiday though. It seemed a bit too empty and weird. But I agree, the controls were a bit strange for the Clone Wars game. I also wish you'd been able to pilot an AT-TE. The manual gave me the impression that I could do that, and I was rather bummed when I found out I couldn't. :( AH WAN MAH HEVEH ARTILLEREH.

    • 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.

    • It is fair to say that the Greek stalwarts of the Black Metal scene now have a sound that rarely ventures into the territory so well tread on "Thy Mighty Contract" and "Non Serviam" but it is also fair to say that "The Heretics" sounds from start to finish like a band who firmly stamp themselves on the metal map for 2019.  What album number thirteen from Rotting Christ does is take a measured approach to variation and repetition to build a memorable and lasting experience.

      The sound itself goes from dark and brooding metal and hard rock to almost Gothic metal proportions.  Yet at the same time that familiar melodic warmth remains in situ throughout.  More often than not there's that big soaring melodic riff riding the vocals like a surfer with his board.  "The Voice of the Universe" does this superbly as does "The Sons of Hell".  The overall feel the record as a whole leaves me with is one of ritualistic allure, tracks like "Hallowed Be Thy Name" and "Fire God and Fear" build well like powerful incantations being cited from voluminous tomes, flooding forwards intermittently with flowing dark melodies.


      It does remind me a lot of Behemoth ("The Satanist" Behemoth, not last years pompous bollocks Behemoth), with the theme of religion so heavily referenced but at the same time it feels like a much more cohesive effort than recent Behemoth keeping a level of consistency and restraint to the songwriting which holds the attention well.  Only once does the album visit anything like Black Metal on "I Believe", here they base a poem by Nikolaos Kazantzakis at the centre of the chaotic and frantic pace and sadly it fails miserably on my ears, coming across as just filler.  My only other criticism is that it does get a bit samey in places (namely the intros to each track).  Otherwise it is a perfectly respectable piece of dark metal.  C'mon, we can't this black metal anymore folks.
