    You guys ever listen to These Arms are Snakes? Some band messaged us looking to do a show and their stuff really reminded me of TAAS so now I'm listening to that haha. Saw them once with Against Me!, Cursive and Mastodon. Bizarre lineup but awesome show. Brian Cook, the bassist of TAAS, plays with Russian Circles, has played with Mouth of the Architect and was in Botch. I really love his bass playing in this song:

    Sweet gig pics Max!


    I've been swamped at work all week, but I got a bunch of orders in this morning and now I'm coasting. So I'm taking the riffs I was working on last night, cutting them up in Audacity and arranging them in different orders to try out how they would work in a song...and taking notes about what to change and work on later, when I record a new version. If the guys in Cold Mourning don't want to use it, I might just write some lyrics and attempt to record some kind of Scott Reagers/Lee Dorian growly clean vocals on it.

    I don't know TAAS but I like Botch a lot. Post hardcore that isn't all scream-o and angular just because.

    The doom part makes scissor fvcking so awesome. Total "what the frig was that?!?" moment.

    Thanks guys, it was an awesome show, cant wait the next one!

    Yeah its a Schecter, but he modded it. There is a active EMG in the neck running into the SS Peavey, supernova and madison cab. Then some high gain humbucker in the bridge running into the Peavey Windsor and the matching 4x12. He doesnt use the stock minibucker in the middle, thats just for looks.

    The title is taking me back to like 1989 when I was 17 and I saw Megadeth opening for Judas Priest at the Kingston PA National Guard Armory. We got so pickled before hand I was walking up to the venue with my buddies and it was so dark I walked right in to a parked black camaro or firebird, the fender pushed my knees out from under me and I was planked face down on the hood, it was priceless. Then in the pit some irate creepy thrity-something Malachy Children of the Corn type Ginger Judas Priest fan jumped me from behind because he hated that people were slamming I guess. But I was spry back then and turn the tides on him right quick and tuned him up proper till a few Skinheads I knew drug me off him so I wouldn't get kicked out of the show. Oh those Golden Memories...

    Love flatwounds, but hate how the unwound B and E strings always corrode, but the Low E to G last forever.
