Musings From A Married Father Life Has Problems. I have Distractions

My Music Story – Chugcore 0

My Music Story – Chugcore

It all started about 2 years ago. I was bored one day, and wanted to chat to some people through the internet (yeah, sounds stupid). I joined this forum called DarkDemon. No idea why… cause… it was a stickman animating forum. LOL. So yeah, I was really active, and talked to a few people. A friend of mine from there introduced me to As I Lay Dying. At first I was like, “ew wtf is this?” but gradually it grew on me. I listened to As I Lay Dying on youtube, and I saw some other related bands, like Trivium,...

Elysion Fields and In Fear And Faith lose vocalists. 0

Elysion Fields and In Fear And Faith lose vocalists.

Sometimes bands have members depart rather amicably, while others simply don’t.  Vocalist Tim Sheridan from the Illinois native metal-core outfit, Elysion Fields, has left the band to start another band called “Autonomy”. Not much is known about this band yet except that its still trying to recruit a guitarist and a bassist. Sheridan was and still is on good terms with the band after the departure.  His replacement is Chris Fernandez an ex member of Thyateira.   I must however point out the benefit Chris has done for himself by getting away from yet another drag and disappointment upon this local...

Net Neutrality? COICA? Strikegently and mediafire could be doomed! 1

Net Neutrality? COICA? Strikegently and mediafire could be doomed!

Usually I dont post about things political in nature because I suspect that most of us, like myself, listen and talk about music to get away from the real world, so to speak.  You get tired of the political BS, the promises of “change” and all the other nonsense. However, we must pay close attention nevertheless. I however, am worried because the sites I watch, cherish, and enjoy such as Strikegently, mediafire, fastpasstv, and other are in real danger of suddenly being seized by the government at any time.  I encourage everyone to watch carefully for the signs of the government...

Gwen Stacy Breaks Up 0

Gwen Stacy Breaks Up

Well yet another good band goes down. Looks like Solid State will lose another band. I’m sad to see these guys go.  Yea a little late, but I just found out about this a few moments ago while doing some web browsing. I could speculate on various reasons, but I’ll just post up what they put on their myspace regarding the breakup: “After six years, nineteen countries, countless US tours, two albums, and an EP, Gwen Stacy has decided call it quits. We feel like now is the best time to end the band and pursue other options and directions...

A Day To Remember Album Release Show at The Rave Sells Out! 0

A Day To Remember Album Release Show at The Rave Sells Out!

I’ve never seen The Rave sell out, but it sold out about 30 minutes before the show started.  This may have been one of the sickest shows I’ve ever been to and might be tied with the seven thousand people who showed up for August Burns Red and The Devil Wears Prada at Summerfest back in July. The lineup for the show was Close Your Eyes, The Word Alive, Underoath, and A Day To Remember and the day was Tuesday the 16th of November, the very same day that ADTR would “What Seperates Me From You” finally hit the store...

Johnny Franck leaves Attack Attack! 4

Johnny Franck leaves Attack Attack!

Well, I didn’t see this coming. But then again I sometimes don’t see a lot of things coming. No homo.  I really thought the band was doing just fine, but this goes to show that you don’t always know whats going on behind the scenes since that is only made public knowledge when they want to pump up awareness for an upcoming album.  Attack Attack! in all of its Post-Crabcore glory, as this band has been so lovingly labeled my lovers, and well mostly haters, may have been dealt a reeling blow. Johnny Franck who provided mind blowing technical guitar...

The Halloween Show: The Oasis: The Good, The Surprising, The Bad 2

The Halloween Show: The Oasis: The Good, The Surprising, The Bad

This little piece about the Halloween Show at The Oasis is only about a week or more late, but I blame that on Sioum and just how hard it is to describe how incredible their music is. It’s like trying to describe to a beautiful sunset without words to someone who has no clue as to what your frantic hand motions and awestruck looks are trying to communicate.  Oh, and yes, I know that new Underoath and A Day To Remember leaked, and I’m in the process of giving it and new Oceano my three step listening procedure.  Well anyway,...

Looking to go to a show? Bands to avoid and Bands to fight to death to see! 0

Looking to go to a show? Bands to avoid and Bands to fight to death to see!

Now before I begin, I consider bands to be good based on their live performance and sound, not by their genre. If they put on a good show and sounded awesome live, I’m letting you know. I’ll give you three bands in both categories that I’ve seen in the last six months. I avoid mentioning big bands like ABR, TDWP, BMTH, Underoath, ect. due the fact that a good live performance by them is usually assured. Bands to see live:  Veil of Maya:  Those machine gun sounding double bass beats aren’t just something that is reserved for the studio. They have a...
