some of the old posts disappeared. why?

am pretty disappointed w/ the new Mastodon album. it always strikes me as kind of silly when a band reads a book (in this case, Moby Dick) and appropriates the imagery, words, themes thereof wholesale; song titles like "I Am Ahab" border on the ridiculous if you ask me. not to mention the fact that the music is lackluster, just a bunch of stapled-together riffs (aside from the first track, "Blood and Thunder," which slams just fine and contains a fun, but somewhat puzzling, vocal cameo from Neil Fallon of Clutch, one of my favorite bands ever). i suppose it would be quite easy to accuse Stay Fucked of the same offense, but the songwriting on the first album just struck me as being a lot more cohesive.

having moved out of a lengthy electric Miles phase, The Melvins is the only thing that makes sense to me right now, esp. Ozma. listening to a little Hoover as well-- essential shit.

Alternative Press is apparently the only magazine that understands the roots of the current prog/math/spazz-metal morass: latest issue has a math-metal top 10 and Craw and Dazzling Killmen are both name-checked. just fucking listen to these bands (and the aforementioned Melvins) and everything will make sense; forget Dillinger Escape Plan or whoever you think is cool and complex and shit. i don't mean to dis contemporary heavy, mathy bands (i'm in one, for chrissakes! and there are many great ones around), i'm just saying that people need to pay respects.

restless. can't wait to play live. watch out. our cds can still be bought from Kim's on St. Marks (look in the glass case by the counter) or mail-ordered from Epicene (go to the catalog and then to the "distributed items" section).
