    Destruction By Definition

    just saw suicide machines playing blocks away from my house. played the destruction by definition record front to back, plus a few battle hymns tracks. i got to open Jay's beer with my opener on my keys, and got to sing a few lines of Too Much into the mic with him. such a great time, and i feel invigorated having seen such a staple of my growing up into that scene.
  • Maïak creates one of the best post-rock albums of 2015

    10 apr 2015, 18:56 av Velvetleaf



    Maïak creates one of key post-rock releases of 2015. They created to something big, something to be heard! The album is called “A Very Pleasant Way to Die”.

    Filled with the symbolic weight of a catastrophe that arose as the punishment of man’s guilty arrogance in an outburst remained silent, Maïak delivers a dark and powerful instrumental rock that evolves between tenuous melancholy and chaotic blast. Released by Fluttery Records which usually release amazing post-rock, ambient and modern classical albums.

    This post-rock storm comes from Switzerland. If you haven't heard it yet, here they have “A Very Pleasant Way to Die” on Bandcamp.

    Inspired by bands like Deftones, L7, Hole, Incubus, Tool, Placebo, Nirvana, Faith No More and others, The Kut are a rock trio born from the alternative scene. Having been voted into in the winning spots for MTV UK Brand New Unsigned 2014 Poll, their ‘Make Up’ EP was produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / White Zombie / My Vitriol / Page & Plant / Def Leppard), featuring 3 brand new tracks plus 2 previous releases ‘DMA’ and ‘Closure’. The 2014 record saw immense support from Scuzz TV, BBC Introducing, Kerrang! Planet Rock, Kerrang! Radio, AXS, MTV-U, Putpat TV, Vevo and 16 cable channels across the USA.

    Their forthcoming 'Rock Paper Scissors' EP is a quicker than expected follow up to the 'Make Up' EP, and includes horror pop halloween single 'I Want You Maniac'. Alekhine's Gun is second single from the 'Rock Paper Scissors' EP, out 13th April. The Kut release their latest single 'I Don't Need Therapy' on Monday 6th April, which "is about rejecting the ill advice that people try to ram down your throat in the guise of helping you out." The track mixes riot grrrl grunge with contageous riffage and is soon to be accompanied by forthcoming video, produced by Mike Gripz (Boy Better Know / Frisco).

    The debut single from the EP 'I Want You Maniac' was added to the playlists of MTV-U and AXS TV. These US channels joined major UK support from Scuzz TV, Planet Rock, BBC Introducing and Jim Gellatly's New Music Showcase among others. The EP has also been played out in the clubs including Club NME and Medication.

    Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part I
    Sleep onset, the first stage of NREM sleep.
    One of the most unusual experiences at this stage is the maintaining of consciousness during the transition from waking state to dormant state. Seconds after hypnic jerks, which serve as a signal from the motor part of the nervous system about somewhat maintaining a control over the body, comes the paralysis, and the consciousness disconnects from reality, switching off to “sleep mode.” But if you keep the consciousness after the jerk, you can witness the process of transition to sleep “with your own eyes”. With your own mind, to be more accurate, because by virtue of the inevitable paralysis you won’t even be able to open your eyelids. Right after the paralysis you might even get soreness in the head and your whole body. It seems as if your brain gets suddenly imposed to a swelling current for 5-10 seconds at first and then to a decreasing one. We shall call each period of such increases and decreases in soreness “an impulse.” On the morrow of two or three impulses painful sensations pass off and the consciousness finally enters a dream relieved. However, in the middle of every impulse a drowsy person, whilst being helpless and paralyzed, gets anxious and in a cold sweat. Modern medicine insures that all of these fears are groundless, and sleep paralysis is harmless. But nevertheless you wonder every time: “What if I don’t wake up in the morning?”


    The Nightmare, by Henry Fuseli (1781) is thought to be one of the classic depictions of sleep paralysis perceived as a demonic visitation.
  • Rare Archival Footage Re-Release: Vin sees The Mars Volta and System of a Down (2005)

    21 mar 2015, 06:39 av doesntexist420

    Alright, time for another unearthed relic of the long forgotten past to save from extinction from the internet's black hole. Lets turn the clock back a full decade to 2005, when I saw System of a Down shortly before the release of the Hypnotize album on their Mezmorize/Hypnotize tour with The Mars Volta and openers Hella and Bad Acid Trip. I didn't show up in time for Bad Acid Trip, I would assume this would be the worst band to listen to on acid, but any number of jam bands would prove otherwise.

    This was posted to the gtaforums.com message board when I was a moderator there during the release of the game "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas"

    The following is a post brought to you by Vin, age 14 (holy fuck), on September 30th of 2005



    Hella is some kind of European punk band or something that I saw 4 songs of

    The Mars Volta fucking suck, they played what seemed like 1 song for the whole hour they played with The Widow stuck into it with another part in Spanish for a half hour and a bunch of other crap

    System of a Down were awesome and they played every song on Mezermize and Toxicity. Legendary as hell, this was awesome they were so on it and every song was as good as it is on the CD. Hypnotize is coming out soon but they only did Hypnotize the song from that and the best ones off of System of a down and all of Mezemerize and Toxicity. System of a down are a great fuckin band respect


    Oh man, where to begin. First off I was wrong by a short bit, they played all but 1 or 2 songs off of Toxicity and Mezmerize but I can't remember which weren't played other than "Jet Pilot". Well I will stand by that this was a legendary gig. I'll say System of a Down were a force live back then, hopefully I'll catch them again one day if their sporadic reformation shows ever make it around my way. LOL at Hella being from Europe, they were from nor California. Zach Hill later went on to play and not play in Death Grips. The Mars Volta did suck when they did that Frances the Mute/Amputechture type shit, and this was what they played here so it's no wonder I hated it then, because I still don't like that now. How did I even find this? I checked my junky email and decided to see if I had any old reviews to dig up on my old moderator account, and I found this. As of 2015, System of a Down have yet to play a gig within 500 miles of me on their sporadic reunion thing, and The Mars Volta went back to making good music on albums like The Bedlam in Goliath and Noctourniquet before breaking up and becoming Antemasque or the Cedric and Omar Experience #3964.

    This is less embarrassing than that review of Mayhem Festival from 2009 I found last year actually. That review actually sucked ass, this is at least still accurate in retrospect.

  • music is the key to empathy

    11 mar 2015, 21:49 av annaoj

    empathy is the light in humanity
    i want to feel more of it every day

    music showed me how
    all these songs are a collection of people’s memories
    and they resonate with me because

    i feel things you have felt before
    and if i haven’t felt it
    i want to understand it
    because i want to understand you
    because i care about you
    even though i know i will never meet see or speak to you

    i want to make a vested effort
    to stop invalidating people’s feelings
    because i have no barometer for your pain
    i will never fully understand the context of your life

    when i catch myself judging people
    i must wave those thoughts away

    when people treat me badly
    i must remind myself that there is a greater source of pain in their lives
    from the past or present
    this is not who they really are

    we were not born with this anger and hatred
    we learned it

    i was a disgusting child filled with anger
    and took it out on innocent people
    already a psychopath at age 5

    my behavior was sickening
    i did things to people that fill me with regret
    i hope that they forgot
    but i know that it’s somewhere in their minds

    violence never leaves you
    terror is vivid

    once someone has woven violence into your life
    even if you manage to rip out all the seams
    there will still be stitch marks left
    holes remain there forever

    sometimes it seems impossible but
    we can let our hatred rest
    instead of feeding ourselves rage and bitterness

    anger tarnished my mind
    it is too much to carry
    violence breeds violence

    i don’t want to be part of this cycle anymore

    empathy will lead the way
