Eagle Twin - The Feather Tipped the Serpent’s Scale
Bam, sometimes you just need some Salt Lake City in your ears. Salt Lake City has some of my favorite hardcore and metal bands. Eagle Twin much like Subrosa is very dark and sludgy. Southern Lord doesn’t hold back on the housing either. It’s a double gatefold with 180 gram vinyl. The layout is fantastic. You get what you pay for with Southern Lord releases. This is the perfect LP to put on and paint to, it really helps get out some of those dark inner feelings.
Mutoid Man - Helium Head
This has been on my list for awhile. It’s very catchy face melting metal. That’s all! Just listen to it.
Chuck Ragan - Gold Country
Gold Country is probably my favorite Chuck Ragan album. It has its twain while keeping it folk. There’s nothing I dislike more than country pop. Glory and Done and Done are two of my favorite Chuck songs. It has a beautiful blend of folk with his punk rock side. The steel guitar parts are done tasteful and the harmonica parts are even better. It’s safe to say i’ll have Gold Country in my collection for quite awhile. Thanks Chuck!
Entombed - Wolverine Blues. Sometimes I watch terrible comic book movies. My girl friend went to Scotland for the summer and I decided what the hell, lets watch some Hugh Jackman. Little did I know this would bring me good luck. Although, Entombed’s Wolverine Blues probably doesn’t have much to do with Hugh Jackman’s terrible Wolverine movie I was surprised to find this bad boy. I know there’s been a lot of speculation about if and when this would ever be repressed. To my surprise I found it at Amoeba Records San Francisco. Way to go guys, i’m a happy camper. This album paved the way for many hardcore and metal bands. It’s heavy and catchy with thick bass tones and sludgy drums to make it beefy, yet not boring.

POZ Review: Bane - Don’t Wait Up
I still do this when I eat pizza.
- Anonymous said:Band question: Have any of you in TA or DP. Signed a girls chest before? I find it to be one the pimpest things a band member can do. Just the idea is awesome. Hahahaha. But I doubt you guys have. You guys seem like sweet guys who will turn down some boob action, I think?
I dont think its “Pimp” or “awesome.” I think it perpetuates some fucking whack rock guy misogynistic mark your territory type bullshit stereotype...

“Big Heart” is another Ski Lodge (aka Andrew Marr) masterpiece...
