Recommendation of the Week

Be sure to check out the stream of that Millions record; it's sure to impress a lot of people. Think Botch meets Black Flag. The band features Seventh Rule Recordings labelhead Scott Flaster (formerly of Small Brown Bike and Gasoline Fight). The new Coalesce tracks are exciting as well.

No shit. Did you go to Zox last night? I went home for the weekend, but I'm not to into them any way. Some decent local bands play the Pomegranate Room every once in a while, but not often enough. Then we get stuck with Sean Kingston. We better get someone good for the spring show this year.

Surprised that this is the first I've heard of the new BOO record. Hopefully it's longer than their previous.

No I went home too haha, I only know 1 song by Zox. But yeah I haven't ever heard anything about the spring show yet, probably some awful radio band. Is the Pomegranate Room that place in Birch or something different?

Sweet! Hope the new Born Of Osiris is good. I will definitely check out the new Oceano video and Coalesce songs. As for Summer Slaughter, I am so there. The line-up is freakin amazing.

Also, keep a look out for my review on the new Impending Doom album if the mods accept it.
