New Red I Flight song sounds halfway decent. They gave me a scare last year when I thought they were going to break up, guess they just layed low.

And is Dr. Acula going to try and right a somewhat serious record now that they've undergone "extensive member changes"?

The upcoming album was recorded before all the changes, so it's doubtful. I think the band is only tolerable because they're a joke.

is the bassist the tubby one? I really couldnt tell...a normal bass looks pretty big on an average sized person...shit my bands bassist is a big guy and his bass still looks like a bass on him...

also, I feel like once youve had that many lineup changes, especially all at once, you change your band name. If you're as big as you make yourself out to be, youll live through the change, but that is no longer Dr. Acula, meaning I'm glad I haven't wasted the money recently to see them live...because I'd be paying to see the real band, no some crap-tastic overweight cover band.

your option is this: Metro Station or Dr. Acula. One must exist, one must be done. The choice is yours and yours alone..choose wisely!

option three: suicide.

i don't think either of those bands deserve to exist, im not biased towards shitty grind bands.
