I'm pretty ure they're coming home to tour the US a little before breaking up. One of their last shows is supposed to be in my town in September.

Where the hell is the Miss May I record? I couldn't find the damn thing yesterday.

It's the same split. It was put out on vinyl last year and now it's being released on CD.

altemose09 06/27/09 02:27 PM

OdeToTheSun 06/27/09 03:21 PM

Metallica and Lamb Of God? Count me in for the Tampa date.
As for the WOP video, the clip of the song at the end has me stoked.

Unfortunately, not very. Easily their weakest work to date. It's not awful, but it's certainly subpar.

Posthardcore 06/27/09 04:57 PM

Amarna Reign finally making it out if my local area! Great guys and fuckin awesome music. They are getting ready to release in EP in July. They have 4 songs streaming on thier Myspace! www.myspace.com/amarnareign | Check em out!

I thought it was released last year as well, but did not know it was only on vinyl. That answers that, then.

porttheman 06/27/09 06:54 PM

I didnt know Kittie was still around. thats pretty funny.

Yeah, their production is always solid. Adam D is great and this time they also brought Brendan O'Brien aboard.
I'd say their second weakest would be either End of Heartache or As Daylight Dies. Both are good though.

YouSmellExcited 06/27/09 09:04 PM

new Winds of Plague & Job For A Cowboy will make slayer sound like the music equivalent of a cup cake. can't wait for the Bleeding Through show in san jose. it'll be funny to see Evergreen Terrace show up the shitty acacia strain every night

Naenia 06/28/09 07:00 AM

I wasn't that impressed with the video but I am really, really looking forward to DevilDriver's new album. What I've heard so far is ace.

Winds Of Plague also released a new song in addition to the teaser video which I think is pretty great. Check it out.

Zeran 06/28/09 02:27 PM

i want to go see btbam so bad, but i kinda don't like those other bands. killswitch is okay.

also, digging the new jfac songs.

Zeran 06/28/09 02:27 PM

AlexHuffman 06/28/09 03:31 PM

Pretty sure Sea of Treachery has 2 new songs up. And my name needs to be blue. Just sayin' ;-)

I got tickets to this in Cleveland a few weeks ago!! Should be awesome (2nd time seeing Metallica, 1st for LOG).

I also heartily recommend Darkest Hour's new album "The Eternal Return" to anyone who hasn't heard it yet; I love it just as much as "Deliver Us."

You are an idiot. I don't even like Slayer, possibly even dislike them, but Slayer >>>> Winds of Plague & Blowjob for a Cowboy.
