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.

    • 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!

    • 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
