Fucking Ween. Where to fucking begin. I’d like to pretend I’d been a Ween fan forever but fact is, it wasn’t until around 02 or 03 that I noticed them. It was 1994’s Chocolate and Cheese. I was a regular on the old Primus Bullboard (RIP, Primus Sucks!) and these two bands had always been […]Read more "Ween – The Mollusk (1997)"
I don’t remember the first time I heard about Cynic. I think it was my friend Matt who first introduced me. This record is the closest I’ve ever gotten to being a fan of progressive death metal. The track was “The Space For This” and I was absolutely blown away. I was enamored of their […]Read more "Cynic – Traced in Air (2008)"
Starting out with a cacophonous jazz beat on a cymbal blast then devolving into a soft piano number with moans and quiet samples, I know by now nothing The Body has their name on sounds quite like what came before. As I think this and type that out, I get blasted by the signature heavy […]Read more "The Body/Sandworm Split – 2014"
It’s fucking Friday and what a goddamn record to have to revisit! I had a cassette version of this I played until it fucking broke. If I had to pick the album I’ve mowed the most lawns to, it’d have to be this (maybe Slayer’s Divine Intervention but that may well be another post….fingers crossed!) […]Read more "Nirvana – In Utero (1993)"
The mighty Black Sabbath! This record is another I bought from Luke’s in Pawtucket. I’ve had this one a while but wasn’t always such a huge fan. I paid $3 for it at the time probably because it was Black Sabbath and I needed to get my hands on anything I saw from them. I […]Read more "Black Sabbath – Heaven and Hell (1980)"
Here we are again. Hope everyone is enjoying autumn turning into winter. I know I am. I’ve been [[boring excuses]] but I’m back now. I was at the wonderful, Dry Hop in Chicago when a friend asked what was up with this blog. I admitted being lazy (the truth). Anyways, I shook the Central Randomizer […]Read more "Al Cisneros – Ark Procession/Jericho (2013)"
Holy fucking shit. This album is just so fucking good. I was never a big listener of punk growing up. I did however love The Misfits, Bad Religion, Bouncing Souls and a few others. I forget exactly where I was when I first heard this but it was probably around 01 or 02 and I […]Read more "AFI – Black Sails on the Sunset (1999)"
