Aww, thanks buddy. I'll work on more, I just haven't been in the mood to write lately, and when I have it's been all depressive black metal. Winter tends to do that. I've had the itch to play more thrash though, so I'll try to get back on that.

Also the girl doing vocals moved to Texas, but she and I have similar screaming voices so it's do-able.

You should write a theme song for Vermin Supreme.

There's a band named Timeghoul, and they have had some early releases of theirs reissued on Dark Descent. I'd never heard of them until last week, but I bought the album anyway.

I think they use lots of sci fi themes.

Also, for those who asked about Wildernessking a while back, their label, Antithetic Records are running a fundraiser for the vinyl release. It's basically a donation-preorder thing and it's a pretty nice way to support the band.

A dark black past
is my most valued
possession


This barely fits here, but Metallica is hosting a 2 day festival where they will play the black album in its entirety the first night (yay?) and Ride The Lightning the second night (yay!). But the hilarious part is that so far there's only like 2 metal bands (3 if you count Avenged Sevenfold) out of like 15 announced, and they're The Sword and Liturgy:

quote:

Arctic Monkeys • Avenged Sevenfold
Modest Mouse • The Gaslight Anthem
Cage The Elephant • hosed Up • Best Coast
Hot Snakes • Titus Andronicus
Gary Clark Jr. • Lucero • Roky Erickson
The Black Angels • The Sword
A Place to Bury Strangers • Liturgy

http://www.brooklynvegan.com/archiv..._music_mor.html

This combined with the "lifestyle" part of the festival makes me think this is almost certainly just Lars concocting a scheme where young people will tell him he is cool and hip and not an old guy at all.

MetalTalk.net have just been informed by a reliable source that Sharon Osbourne has fired Bill Ward. If this turns out to be true, as fully expected, then it won't go down well with the Metal community.

MetalTalk.net understands that Bill's replacement will be Tommy Clufetos from the Ozzy Osbourne band.

There is so much wrong with this, its unbelievable. My question isnt why Bill was given the shaft, or even why they dont bring on Vinnie, but why is Sharon in any position to fire Bill Ward? Seems like this whole reunion was being treated like a vehicle for Ozzy primarily.

Read this somewhere else and it really sheds some light on the whole Ozzy legacy.

quote:

I don't know how complex his mind is. Did Ozzy ever write a song? Geezer Butler and Tony Iommi wrote everything in Black Sabbath and guys like Bob Daisley and Jake E. Lee wrote everything for Ozzy's "solo" career.

Sharon and Ozzy hosed over the band members' royalties and credits and fired anyone who complained. They got sued left and right, appropriately so, but committed perjury to win the lawsuits. I have no doubt if Randy Rhoads had lived to play on more than two albums he would have gotten screwed over too. Ozzy was involved in some great music in his day but he and Sharon are dishonest shitheads.

Ozzy never wrote much. He came up with the ideas for a few songs but everyone else would write the music and lyrics. When Dio joined Black Sabbath, Geezer Butler was thrilled because Dio wrote his own lyrics and it meant Geezer didn't have to work so hard anymore!

There is a perception of Ozzy as the "prince of darkness" and father of heavy metal but really he was a hired singer. Sharon, for right or wrong, deserves a lot of credit for shaping his image. On the Bark at the Moon album Ozzy is credited as the sole songwriter on every track when he probably didn't write more than a few words and none of the music. Without songwriting credits the band members wouldn't get paid any royalties. Bob Daisley, Lee Kerslake and Phil Soussan have all sued over poo poo like that.

After Ozzy was kicked out of Black Sabbath his new band was supposed to be called Blizzard of Ozz, and not a solo project, but when the album came out the record company printed the records as a solo Ozzy album without notifying any of the other band members.

Daisley wrote probably 90% of Ozzy's first five albums. Once he was out, Sharon hired John Purdell and Lemmy Kilmister to write No More Tears and Ozzmosis. It's obvious that different songwriters were involved, without even looking at the song credits, since No More Tears sounds so radically different from the previous Ozzy albums. If Ozzy was writing his own songs all those years there should be some continuity.

While I agree about Ozzy being easily manipulated, he was still a part of it and knew what was going on.

Sharon knew Ozzy was her meal ticket and she did everything to keep the gravy train rolling and keep every dime in the family. She's awful.

And ends with this:

I'm not really big on Sabbath or Ozzy in general, but I have no problem believing most of that.

My question was really more like "can Ozzy even perform a 45 minute set without forgetting where he is and possibly soiling himself?" I'm just not sure the guy qualifies as technically conscious at this point.

Chick I was dating years back was besties with a chick who was dating Bill Ward's son. We hung with them in 'Frisco for a week.

The chick said Ozzy's mind was basically fried. And that was over a decade ago.

And producers/managers/who-the-gently caress-ever writing an artist's/band's songs are not unheard of, even in metal. I knew the Drummer from Flotsam And Jetsam around the same time, he said their manager had been writing most of their material for a few years at that point....

For me, this is only ok if the outsider was once a member of the band, such as in the cases of Finntroll or Immortal. Otherwise, the band should man up and write its own music, at least the music it records.

Ozzy was apparently able to perform admirably at Hellfest when he played it in the not so distant past. And considering some of the states I've seen people in 20min before they're due to play, mental faculties aren't really 100% required.

I can't believe that loving oval office is shoving her cancerous rear end into what will be the last hurrah for Sabbath (assuming Iommi survives). I'm reading Iommi's book now and the picture he paints of bill ward is one of a guy you could not possibly have a problem with.

If he ain't behind the drums in a reunion I'll just have to be thankful I saw the original lineup once in my life and skip this one.

Supposedly he's a lot more with it now that he fired a doctor who was literally writing the guy a prescription to counteract the effects of another prescription, and then writing one to counteract THAT one. I think I read he was on something like 20 different meds and over half of them were to fight side effects of other ones.

I guess now that he's off all that poo poo he's back to what you'd expect a lunatic rock star to be like after 40 years of coke and booze, and not a stroke victim like he was on TV.

I really think this is an issue of Bill's disinterest which probably correlates equally with compensation as well as confidence in his physicality.

On a less dramatic note I posted a preview of the new Christian Mistress LP since Relapse was kind enough to give my team an advance copy.

This letter was posted on the Bill Ward Facebook page last week. From the first part of the letter:

Bill Ward posted:

Statement on Black Sabbath Album & Tour:

Los Angeles, CA – February 2, 2012

Dear Sabbath Fans, Fellow Musicians and Interested Parties,

At this time, I would love nothing more than to be able to proceed with the Black Sabbath album and tour. However, I am unable to continue unless a "signable" contract is drawn up; a contract that reflects some dignity and respect toward me as an original member of the band. Last year, I worked diligently in good faith with Tony, Ozzy and Geezer. And on 11/11/11, again in good faith, I participated in the L.A. press conference. Several days ago, after nearly a year of trying to negotiate, another “unsignable” contract was handed to me.

Black Sabbath responded on their Facebook page:

Black Sabbath posted:

We were saddened to hear yesterday via Facebook that Bill declined publicly to participate in our current Black Sabbath plans...we have no choice but to continue recording without him although our door is always open... We are still in the UK with Tony. Writing and recording the new album and on a roll... See you at Download!!!

Hi! I'll probably drag my roommate up to that, just cause. Orlando and Tampa have been getting a lot of shows this spring (I assume because people know I'm leaving at the end of the year and are STACKING the shows, hah!).

Corpse is a fun live show, last time I saw them in Jville, it was a blast. Exhumed are super fun live, really cheesy gore-y fun. I just saw them at MDF and Hellfest and had a blast watching them both times- totally worth it.

Look for me- I'm short and blonde and, well, I'll be there.
