  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    I just took a walk down Main Street here in Trumpbury USA and there were two whippersnappers, probably 20 years my Junior, walking down the sidewalk in headed in the opposite direction, listening to DEATH on a blue tooth speaker. Thank goodness that the children of today have great musical taste to bring into the future.

    • KyleJMcBride

      That’s the only thing I like about passing through Harvard Sq, Cambridge, MA(old hangout) these days. There’s a good chance I’ll see a 13 year old wearing a denim vest and a Black Sabbath shirt.

      • RustyShackleford

        HAH-VAHD? All them WICKED SMAHT kids at the HAH-VAHD BAH? NAWT even watchin the SAWX game JEEZ

  • JWG79

    Awkward band promo photos?

    Basically just follow NWN! on Twitter and wait a few days for them to post one in total super seriousness. They’ll always deliver.

      You are going to upset JJD.

      • Óðinn

        He likes these guys? LOL.

        • more beer

          I know and he will be upset because you are goofing on them. Get ready for a PLZ Odinn.

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      • “I am literally weeping blood because Pretty Boy Floyd’s bassist fell off the teacup ride at Six Flags.” -JJD

        • Óðinn

          Bwahahahahahahahah! That’s the funniest thing ever.

        • more beer

          That is too funny!

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            Too accurate

        • more beer

          That really should be a featured comment.

        • Sid Vicious Promos

          I’m laughing so hard because of this that I’m in pain.

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          *violently

        • ¡Jajajajajaja!

      • Sid Vicious Promos

        I’m not upset. I hate Pretty Boy Floyd.

        • more beer

          You don’t hate anything. Kind of like derrick goddess angel.:)

          • Sid Vicious Promos

            I certainly don’t like Pretty Boy Floyd.

    • Howard Dean

      These dudes party (as long as you aren’t a cop and have the cash and a hotel room).

      • more beer

        I wouldn’t be caught dead in a hotel room with these guys.

        • Or, y’know, anywhere else either.

          • more beer

            Yep you are very correct.

          • Óðinn

            You make a good point, Richter.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            I would.

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          I would

      • Óðinn

        It’s quite possible that’s true…even now….especially now.

        It is possibly the only time in my life. I wished I was a cop.

    Now come on, Boar of Suicide look like a killer Speed Metal act.

  • Howard Dean

    I’d buy a Boar of Suicide album strictly on the strength of that promo pic. For realz. Dwarf in leopard print spandex? Chubby dude in a pleather vest? Polyester and studded everything?

    80’s Euro-chic to the fucking MAX.

    • Joaquin Stick

      Dude on the right looks like Zach Braff

      • Howard Dean

        I just searched discogs and couldn’t find anything from these guys. I am disappoint.

    Seeing Mayhem tonight. Should be fun.

  • The Tetrachord of Archytas

    More like Bored of Suicide

  • CyberneticOrganism

    GAAAAHH @ Psyclon Nine

    Put your goddamned pants on

  • Black Smallbeard

    i dont think theres a single bicep between these groups. altho just peeking at my record collection will yield you equally hilarious band photos.

    Gud: Records ordered, some in. Gonna take some records to the record store and see about doing some trades tomorrow. Tabletop tonight (Warhammer, Splendor, maybe some others). It actually feels a little more like winter.

    Bad: Work tomorrow.

    Ugly: Cat keeps pooping on the sides of the litterbox.

        Cool then he can do his own light show. By putting different colored light bulbs in his mouth.

    • Dave Vincent’s Perm

      Dude’s Jackson is pretty sick though.

    • Óðinn

      Well his band name is “Bad Habits”.

  • TrundleTheGreat

    Bought Iron Maiden tickets for their show June 7th. Really excited to finally see them. Also been jamming the new Hour of Penance and The Great Old Ones, really enjoying both of them so far.

    • KyleJMcBride

      Getting my tix next week for July 17th.

    • Those ticket prices are Too Damn High!

      • TrundleTheGreat

        $84 for mezzanine seating at Prudential Center. I’m willing to dish it out since I really want to see them before it’s too late. I saw Motörhead before Lemmy fell ill, saw Slayer with Hanneman, I don’t want to press my luck with Maiden.

        • Óðinn

          You didn’t hear!……

          • TrundleTheGreat

            Hey! Don’t even joke about that! At least not until June 8th.

          • Óðinn

            Okay. Just fuckin with you. I’ve seen Maiden twice. They put on a good show.

          • TrundleTheGreat

            I’m counting on it. Haven’t been this excited for a show since the Big Four concert at Yankee Stadium.

        • Being able to see Rush on their final tour was a priceless thing, so I totes understand! Have you seen Maiden before, or Ghost?

          • TrundleTheGreat

            Haven’t seen either. I don’t particularly care for Ghost at all but I hear they have a good stage show, and Maiden is a band I’ve always wanted to see but was never able to.

          • Well fuck whatever I said earlier, you GOTTA go to the show…you’re going to have the time of your life! If you feel so inclined, get out of a heavy metal state of mind and jam “Year Zero” by Ghost. It might start to grow on you. But for sure their stage shows are elaborate.

          • TrundleTheGreat

            Nothing from Ghost has ever kicked with me but I don’t believe I’ve listened to that song. I like to familiarize myself with a bands discography before a show if I aren’t already so I’ll start with that.

          • Good idea for sho. Maybe you’ll come back here a a new Ghost fan. (The two times I seen them live, there were lots of dads in attendance. Not to scare you off or anything, just odd…)

          • TrundleTheGreat

            They do feel very Dad-rockish. I’m fully expecting my friends and I to be half the age of some of the people there.

          • And what’s hilarious about those dads: every other one of them will be recordin’ the whole damn show with their cell phones!

          • TrundleTheGreat

            Just like a lot of people. The people I’m going with did it when we saw Napalm Death and Black Dahlia Murder so I’m prepared to be surrounded by screens.

          • Oops, no offense to your friends! I just don’t get it myself.

          • TrundleTheGreat

            None taken. I don’t get it either. Takes away from the experience and just leaves a shitty recording. I’m just used to since literally every concert I’ve ever been too anyone I’ve gone with started recording at some point.

  • JWG79

    I totally think Mael Mordha should get a pass. Alhough their look in that photo definitely doesn’t match their sound, I’m not entirely sure that’s not the point.

    I mean, could that really be serious if they’ve also done one looking like this?

    • sweetooth0

      wouldn’t it be awesome if they actually did do a real murder and then everyone just assumes it’s fake so they get away with it?

  • Joaquin Stick

    Wait. Did Bad Habits just photochop a weird picture of Tia Carrere from Wayne’s World into their picture?

  • Lacertilian

    Good: The new Sinmara and Misþyrming split is up on bandcamp.
    Bad: Almost everything.
    Ugly: The hideous underlying melodies here –
    https://youtu.be/09Bo25fVXGY

  • sweetooth0

    GOOD: The free video game covers album “WAREZ” that got emailed to me after buying the Master Boot Record discog from bandcamp. Seeing the new Resident Evil on Saturday in 3D AVX DBOX. Yeah they’re dumb, but sometimes dumb, decently gory monster action is just what the doctor ordered! My girlfriend just got a job offer from a dance company to be the assistant for the lady that runs it, could be a really cool job for her, and it’s been a long hunt to get full time employment.

    BAD: an hour and a half of work left and I am bored to tits right now. UGH.

    UGLY: Can’t go to a triple birthday party thing this weekend with friends cuz I can’t drink (for reasons I won’t get into here) and being around people drinking when you can’t drink fucking sucks worse than anything.

    Also, Frank Mullen in this picture: “axe murdering is what I do best” https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d4b294500ec30e6b7aa8006df631ac30715c569096fc20e1c7c24b089af378e6.jpg

  • JWG79

    #GBU Format Post, Activate. In reverse so I end on a positive note.

    Ugly: I think I am sick again. I woke up feeling gross internally but also kind of externally.

    http://i.imgur.com/L7ThP8d.jpg

    Bad: very little activity from Mailmanbro lately of the metal (or even generally musical) sort.

    But I did get a stack of Blu Rays – mostly Scream Factory to pad my collection though also Videodrome (Criterion) and Train to Busan (WGUSA).

    Sort of Indifferent: Being an obsessive collector I’ve also been getting the “IFC Midnight” films distributed through the Scream Factory label. Some have been surprisingly good. A few terrible. Most just mediocre.

    Good: I have movies to watch while I stay home sick (about half the week’s purchases yet to view). And I might have a few more coming since mailmanbro is late today and there’s another shipment from Amazon that was due to arrive this morning.

  • Rob M

    Good: Its finally the weekend…I can sleep tomorrow

    Bad: Ive been fighting this damn flu for about a week

    Ugly: The bell curve for the crazies on the left and the crazies on the right has officially become a circle

    On a side note…Mael Mordha can dress however they want if they keep making awesome music like this:

    1st show of the year, Going to see Brujeria and the Casualties today, not a big fan of punk rock, but is a Miami show, which we don’t get too many, unless is Beiber and Lil wayne at South Beach, which is at this point a monthly thing.
    And tomorrow back to work, so it should be fun.

  • Crocodylus★Pontifex

    GOOD: Things.

    BAD: Politics, as usual. The social climate right now.

    UGLY: It’s been unsettling how warm it’s been this January here. I’ve worn mere hoodies to work. Not good.

      • Elegant Gazing Globe

        I have lots of sordid history with the IRS. I only started getting refunds a few years ago. We should commiserate sometime

        • GL

          Looking forward to seeing how the return works with our baby girl this time around. Should be goood. The wife is working a lot less too. All good refund things.

            well “i’m” not on the mortgage and “we” arent married

  • Sid Vicious Promos

    I hate Hed PE so much. I’ve seen them twice. I would not see them again but alas I’m seeing Motograter open for them in May because I’m their biggest fan.

  • The Mighty Thorange

    Good: Meeting up with a bunch of old friends this weekend so that should be fun.
    Bad: Stressing out to fuck about the amount of uni work I have to do.
    Ugly: Politics in general but it was reported that the current (and unelected) Prime Minister has gifted your new (and retarded) president a traditional Scottish cup and is an ancient symbol of friendship. Most of us Scots find this insulting as we fucking hate the PM and her political views and party and we have hated Trump since before it was cool. Bastards been building disgusting golf courses here for years.

    • Simon PhoenixKing Rising

      Remember when The Donald tweeted that your people were happy to be free of the EU? Even though around 60% of the Scottish population voted remain? Good times.

      • The Mighty Thorange

        And then we insulted the fuck out of him! Fucking brilliant times.

        • Óðinn

          That is awesome.

          • The Mighty Thorange

            I’m not joking when I say that we are proud of the way we create insults. This video has some more examples. Some of it’s shite, some of it’s gold. https://youtu.be/z9AcO5FHl0U?t=26

          • Óðinn

            Nice. I don’t often get to hear Scottish voices. Although I did binge-watch Shetland on Netflix while pounding a bunch of Irn-Bru recently.

          • The Mighty Thorange

            Irn-Bru is the (non-alcoholic) drink of the gods and Shetland is a series I need to watch. Where would you get Irn-Bru from anyway? The only place I have seen it outside Scotland is one wee shop in Berlin.

          • Óðinn

            It is an unusual find. I get it from local corner store that sells British imports. I go there sometimes to pick up proper Cadbury chocolate and Jaffa Cakes.

          • The Mighty Thorange

            That’s pretty fucking awesome actually. Cadbury’s and Jaffa Cakes are also excellent. By the way, if you are wanting to watch another Scottish show to watch, give the beloved classic comedy series Still Game a go. It’s about a bunch of retired pensioners from a shitehole area of Glasgow getting drunk and ending up in ridiculous and hilarious situations. It should also be on Netflix.

          • Óðinn

            Sweet. Looks like I have it on Netflix. I’ll give it a go. Six series too, which is fantastic. I’m always looking for new things to watch.

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b36242991fe463650e7162dace0430562cf972ae76b4e92a9e3bd0e16862d49e.png

          • The Mighty Thorange

            Fantastic. Let me know if you enjoy it. You will probably need to put on subtitles though. They speak using the real Scottish dialect and Glaswegian slang but you should get used to it.

          • Óðinn

            Thanks. I’ll have to see how the accent goes. I do end up working with many Brits in my line of work, but mostly English. The accents I actually have the most trouble with are Manchester and Liverpool.

          • The Mighty Thorange

            Yeah. I have trouble understanding those accents. They also sound awful in general. You should be fine with Still Game then if you have had to put up with those accents. Not that they sound at all similar, the Glasgow accent is just better. Not that I’m biased or anything.
