new Chimaira song makes me give :thumbup:

batmannj 03/07/09 11:18 AM

I cannot wait to see what Zao does with Tim Lambesis producing, TDWP's songs that they have played live sound great, and it sucks that xDeathstarx is breaking up.

more heart 03/07/09 11:21 AM

Anyone know why Shai Hulud would be banned from House of Blues?

I'm always excited to read this every week.

porttheman 03/07/09 11:30 AM

Woops, that link didn't work right. I'll get that corrected.

From their blog: "Chalk it up to our profound lyrical hatred. Or something like that. We're not exactly sure why we're not permitted to play the Disney venues to be quite honest"

I did go to their Myspace and read that blog. Basically Disney is banning metal acts because of some self-imposed stereotype that all metal bands are violent and promote hate. You go Disney!

Yet Satyricon and Slayer are able to play. None of them should be banned, but you'd think those two would get it before the Hulud.

At least it made for a highly entertaining blog.

I'm digging the new Mastodon, not really into the video though.
Also pumped on new Red Chord, hoping for something more like Fused Together in Revolving Doors and less like their newest album which puts me to sleep.
