Flush It Friday: (Not) Down with the Sickness

Everyone here is sick. Everyone. My wife. My boss. My friends. My students. Everyone. Except me. I hope it stays that way for the show this weekend.

What show, you ask? Why the Cavalera Brothers Return to Roots Tour featuring Immolation and Full of Hell, of course. If I’m being honest, I’m mostly just going to see Immolation. Yonkers’s finest are one of the most tragically overlooked but most consistently excellent acts in death metal, and they have been for a long time running. There isn’t a weak record in their discography, so whether their set draws more heavily from Close to a World Below or more current stuff like Kingdom of Conspiracy, it’s sure to be fantastic. Give me a beer and Robert Vigna’s weird, dissonant riffs, and a happy president in a rain poncho I’ll be.

That said, I’m not entirely disinterested in seeing the Cavalera Bros. Despite their propensity for jumpingdafukup and nonsensical lyrics over fat groove, Max and Iggor wrote some killer songs in their time (listen to Arise if you need a refresher). And if we’re being totally honest, Roots itself, which the duo will be performing in full (with help from Marc Rizzo’s sentient backpack and Tony Campos’s shiny head), still has some decent cuts on it. “Spit” still brings the aggro, anyway.

Full of Hell is really the only unknown quantity here for me. I recall enjoying Full of Hell & Merzbow, but aside from that record I’m not terribly familiar with the deathgrinders’ sound. If their set is anywhere close to as heavy as “Gordian Knot,” though, it’s going down.

So, to recap:

Good: First concert in a long time (and not on a weeknight, to boot!)
Bad: The rolling plague sweeping across my city
Ugly: My cracked knuckles from the lack of moisture in our atmosphere. I’m getting real ashy.

You know the drill.

    I’m missing a show tonight that I bought tickets for 3 months ago because I’m crook as fuck.
    Would have been my first gig in ages and this happens to be the first time I’ve been physically sick in months.

  • Enjoy the show Dubs, Full Of Hell is very good live from what I hear.

    Good: Going to see one of the best MCs in the game, RA The Rugged Man as part of my birthday celebration on Saturday.
    Also good: Eighteen Visions getting back together and supposedly writing heavy music
    Ugly: Don

      The Rugged Man >>>>>

    • sweetooth0

      Saw Rugged man up in my neck of the woods a while back. He killed it. Only shitty thing is I got hand/foot/mouth disease the next day, and I’m fairly certain I picked up the virus from the show the night before. So now, I will always think of that horrid experience when I think of R.A. Ha ha!

      • I don’t expect to meet the same fate. Really looking forward to it. Most of my friends are coming too so it should be a good time.

    • more beer

      I saw Full of Hell about a month ago. You heard correct. They were excellent.

    I got to my sister kids for the weekend, (parents off to celebrate 10 years wedding by going to Las Vegas) but good for me, since know i can take them to go see Lego Batman movie, got great reviews on RT.

    • RJA

      Lego batman is going to be awesome! I’m sure of it

    • JWG79

      Before I go see Lego Batman I want someone to confirm that the weird discrepancy between the vocal recording that was apparent in several of the teasers and trailers was just because of the poor audio quality of the trailer platform (e.g. YouTube).

      There’s at least one where ‘Batman’ sounds just fine, but ‘Joker’ sounds like his voice was recorded on a Fisher-Price cassette deck’s plastic microphone and nobody bothered to clean up the audio before just sticking it into the film.

      If you remember to do so, please report back if that’s not the case.

      I suspect it isn’t, but I need confirmation anyway.

      • Depechemodeisgangsta

        I asked my friend who already saw it, he said Lego Batman sounded just like previous movie, same voice and everything, and he said he didn’t notice anything off from Joker, I’ll go on Sunday and will let you know, if I remember.

      • Depechemodeisgangsta

        Good movie, didn’t find any problem with the Joker Voice, it’s more that they made his character, less goofy, that’s what i took from it.

  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    Fucking fantastic:

    This motherfucker is finally out!!!!!!!!

  • sweetooth0

    That’s be a balls out awesome concert all around. When I saw Immolation at a Metal Blade show a while back they were so good I could’ve easily left as soon as they were done and felt totally satisfied, and they were not headliners.

    GOOD: I got some sick blurays comin’ in the mail from the Canadian Cult Horror Collector’s FB group. Demons 1 and 2 steelbooks at an amazing price!! Chopping Mall Vestron video bluray! Also managed to nab a copy of the Indian Nightmare – Taking Back the Land vinyl from a discogs seller who wasn’t charging extreme anal rape shipping prices. So there’s that to look forward to. Seeing John Wick 2 this weekend, and all the reviews are good, so that should be a head blasting good time. Been working on some pretty fun art projects right now, and I hope to have them finished off by the end of this weekend.

    BAD: There’s a ton of astrological shit going on right now, full moon and a bunch of other stuff, and for people who get kind of crazy, this is making them extra crazy. Unfortunately, one of those people is my girlfriend. EEK.

    UGLY: The art stuff is digital, so after hours hunching in front of my computer (always end up with a serious hunch once I start concentrating) my back and neck feel like someone is pushing 1000 flaming needles into my spine.

    • Old Man Doom

      I’ve been in front of my office computer writing up a proposal for the past 2 days straight, so I feel that spine pain, my man.

      • sweetooth0

        it means even when I get a good momentum going on my design, I have to stop because it becomes unbearable. Unfortunately makes it take longer to finish. But on the bright side, it lets me mull over ideas longer, so maybe it’s a positive in the long run. Must be getting old or some shit cuz I don’t remember it always being so bad. Ha ha.

        • Old Man Doom

          I get every 20mins to walk around and it feels great… until I sit back down.

  • Jack Rabbit

    Also, for any other steven wilson nerds, Blackfield V is streaming

    • Joaquin Stick

      I was never big on the Blackfields as a huge PT fan back in the day, but maybe my tastes have changed. How is this one?

      • Jack Rabbit

        My initial opinion is I would rank higher than their last two, which were underwhelming, but not as high as the second, which I think is their best. However, if the first two albums didn’t do much for you, I doubt this will do much to change your mind. But I’m a enjoying it a lot.

        • Joaquin Stick

          Locked and loaded on Spotify. I’ll give anything SW does a fair shot.

          • Jack Rabbit

            Sweet, let me know what you think

  • The Tetrachord of Archytas

    Good: Beer trip to San Diego tomorrow with a bunch of friends. Also the joy of slowly receiving my physical hauls from bandcamp day!

    Bad: Bought tickets for Coheed and Dear Hunter two weeks ago for San Diego because I either had the choice to head there during the week or deal with LA on a friday night, besides being unmetal of me, they announced a show this week 5 minutes from my house….pisssed

    Ugly: eh

    Side note if anyone missed the CD run for Eternal Champion they restocked it this week.

    • Joaquin Stick

      I almost did the same thing regarding THD. Almost bought tickets for Boston, but they announced a south CT show. It’ll only save me like 30 minutes of driving, but I’d rather see more of them than Coheed I think.

      • The Tetrachord of Archytas

        Well if you’re not a fan it won’t make a difference but if you like both Coheed is a far superior live band. Partly because a lot of modern dear hunter is more a broadway thing he’s going for and whereas coheed keeps the drama tempered by the riff gods. I will say that I saw tdh for act IV last year and it was definitely the best performance of theirs id seen and I’ve been seeing them since Act II (which was a great album but the worst lineup)

        • Joaquin Stick

          Oh yeah, I’ve seen TDH probably 8 times between Act III and now. It’s all good. I’d like to see Coheed but their ticket prices are always crazy.

      • The Tetrachord of Archytas

        This coheed tour is also their Good Apollo anniversary which is their most technical album

    • Waynecro

      Dude, I was going to go to that Coheed show in San Diego, but I decided to see the band in Oakland instead so I could go with my brother. It’s going to be awesome.

      • The Tetrachord of Archytas

        Yeah I’m really excited I actually went to the original 4 day neverender thing

        • Waynecro

          Goddamn, man. I would have loved to have gone to the original. I did see the Neverender tour for The Second Stage Turbine Blade, and that was killer.

          • The Tetrachord of Archytas

            That’s rad! The upside to the tour this time around is their original drummer will be there. The 4 day neverender had Chris Pennie from Dillinger. Obviously he is an incredible drummer and DEP is one of my all time faves, but something about the way Josh plays that just works better for coheed. I think it’s the same with Caseys brother playing drums for Dear Hunter. It’s just better that way

          • Waynecro

            I’ve seen the band a couple times since Josh has been back. His playing is on point, and he seems like he’s having a really great time.

          • The Tetrachord of Archytas

            Yeah they all seem like they’re having a ton of fun nowadays.

          • Waynecro

            For sure. They usually put on a good show, and my brother and I always have a really great time.

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      I should be receiving my red EC wax any day now

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    Kinda OT….anyone here have that Sepultura record box set? Thinking of going for it

    • Hans Gruber

      Uh… I have A box set… it’s called “the Cavalera Years”, yet it’s missing Bestial Devastation and Morbid Visions and all the albums come in shitty cardboard sleeves. Probably not the one you’re thinking of.

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    Good: ACCEPT!

    Have a great weekend y’all!

  • slipjackthewanderer
  • JWG79

    Good:
    – Reading Break begins Monday and lasts the whole week, so I basically don’t have to deal with students until next Monday at the earliest and more likely Tuesday

    – There’s a biannual HI conference in town over the weekend that I plan to attend because (a) the workshops on Day One include one that will seriously help one of my work projects coming up and (b) I was still eligible for the Student Rate

    – The few-day winter storm conditions on the Island and lower mainland seem to have passed, leaving behind a bit of a mess. It looked really nice coming home late yesterday evening, though:

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/25c31802ba7da6d82697b1e501ce5c83bb3e7f940b134227654bdd1bc4ae959f.jpg

    Bad:

    – I lost the use of one of my personal email addresses this week, though voluntarily. Someone signed it up for an absolute shit-load of job-seeker spam, though I think it was an error rather than a deliberate act on their part (evidence suggests this “Jeremy” from “Cadiz, Kentucky” entered my email instead of his own) the impact was the same. It’s “icloud” though and anyone who deals with Apple knows they will never ever outright delete an account for you no matter how much you plead or justify. I’m not going through that, though, so I just stopped using it.

    – One of my Amazon packages seems to have vanished. Delivery was projected for Friday two weeks ago. It had to come from a U.S. “Marketplace” source, though, so I’m totally inclined to blame Border Services instead of the Seller.

    – This makes the loss of HMV Canada all the tougher, since if I can’t trust Amazon(‘s Marketplace) and I have no “brick and mortar” source of Blu Rays left I will have to give up on years of habit – collecting physical evidence of my interest – and instead just stream stuff (though on that note, I did just find Shudder Canada is starting to build a decent collection of films otherwise distributed Raven Banner or Scream Factory).

    And the big one:

    – Thor (my cat for the few of you who don’t know, e.g. newest community members) has been extremely ill for a while due initially to a thyroid problem, then a developing tumour that has most recently made it impossible to give him thyroid medications without making him sicker still (he stopped eating three days ago because of it). We think the cancer may have metastatized and spread, but have to wait until tomorrow to take him to see the Vet to confirm or deny. Denial looks much less likely though.

    Ugly: I don’t want to think about it.

    • Jack Rabbit

      Good luck to you and Thor

    • Óðinn

      Best wishes for Thor, JWG79.

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    Another good: i was binging Hip Hop all week and it felt great.

    • Al Bundy

      Noice. What’s yo jam? East coast, West coast, Miscellaneous?

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        I guess more East than anything. Lots of Wu-Tang related albums, some classics and a few newer jams.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa
        • Al Bundy

          Same here. It’s all about the RZA, GZA and Raewkon (or however you spell it) for me. I also have a lot of time for Joey Bada$$ and Freddie Gibbs.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            GZA, Inspectah Deck and ODB for me

            No one ever says U-God’s their favorite Wu. I’m surprised hipsters haven’t started to ironicly say that.

  • Old Man Doom

    Good: Um, been jamming that new Code Orange after reading HH’s review. Besides that, things are wet, cold, and stressful.
    Bad: Valentine’s Day and Birthdays coming up for people in my life, and I am runnin’ low on cash. Fuck me.
    Ugly: My roommates (a couple) have decided to completely redecorate our rented apartment – everything except my room. I fear that this is just the opening gambit in the “kick OMD to the curb” plan. That would really fuckin’ suck, especially since housing is so goddamned expensive and competitive in this college town.

      • Old Man Doom

        “W. plz! I’ll die!” Been selling a lot of recording gear and warhammer shit on ebay recently to compensate actually.

  • I was in a nu metal cover band a few years ago (yeah, i know…it was 75% tongue in cheek, 25% genuine nostalgia), and “Roots Bloody Roots” would bring down the fucking walls every time. My god, what a fucking monstrous groove.

    • Sid Vicious Promos

      I wish I could be in a nu metal cover band. Is Motograter or Hed PE looking for any band members? Both of those bands only have 1 classic member.

    • Max

      It is actually a good song. It took me years to come to terms with that.

  • Sid Vicious Promos

    Good: I get paid today, John Wick 2

    Bad: Valentines Day aka a corporate scam.

    Ugly: my love life or lack of one.

  • Waynecro

    Good: Fancy Valentine’s Day chocolates.
    Bad: A whole bunch of bees got into my house through the chimney the other morning. A neighbor told me the house has a long history of bee infestations (a fact no one disclosed to us when we bought the house). So now we have to spend $2,000+ to bee proof the house so bees can’t turn it into a massive hive again.
    Ugly: Trying to seal up the fireplace and kill dozens of bees without getting stung (because there’s a good chance I’m allergic).

    • Óðinn

      This might be too obvious, but would lighting a fire help? On second though, it might make it worse. Call en exterminator.

      https://youtu.be/qeqkoTY61U0

      • Waynecro

        Lighting a fire was actually my initial, panicked idea. And one of my colleagues suggested I just burn the house down and start over.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          A worthwhile idea

        • Óðinn

          I’m not an expert on bees, but I’ve heard that smoke pacifies them.

          However, if there’s a hive in there, you probably don’t want it rolling down into your house while it’s on fire. Plus, if you’re allergic, why risk it?

          • Waynecro

            Fortunately, there’s no hive yet. The bee tech who showed up suspects the bees that showed up were scouts. Because the house has a history of infestations, bee pheromones left in the walls and ceiling (former hives got pretty big, according to my neighbors) are attracting new bees, hence the need for a bee proofing for the house. Keeping bees out of the house will eliminate the need to kill any, and I certainly don’t like the possibility that large numbers of bees will suddenly show up in the house again. I’m most shaken up about the whole thing because my tiny (15-pound) dog is highly vulnerable to numerous stings.

        • Óðinn
        • JWG79

          That is how one should deal with spiders, not bees.

    • Rain Poncho W.

      Alternatively, maybe you should just kill the queen and take command of the hive yourself. Then you’d have a murderous bee swarm at your disposal.

      • CyberneticOrganism
      • Waynecro

        Are you suggesting I use masculine violence to take an important job from a female?

        • Rain Poncho W.

          That is exactly what I’m suggesting.

          • Waynecro

            Don’t answer the door, Dubya. That’ll be the protesters asking to borrow some bottles for their Molotov cocktails.

        • Al Bundy

          No need for violence. Why can’t you just get along with your new Buzzing overlords?

        Good write up. As you know I have a long history with the Immolation guys. Looking forward to seeing this show on the 25th. Don’t miss Full of Hell. I saw them about a month ago. I thought they were better than Entombed AD. Those kids are are hungry and playing their asses off.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Holy shit!

    • CyberneticOrganism

      That sucks man, hopefully it won’t cost you quite that much if you find the right guy. A couple crows tried to get into my chimney today, they were knocking at the top of it so humanlike I thought someone had gotten up onto the roof.

      • Waynecro

        I think the total cost will be about $2,200, but it’s a good and thorough service. After the experience I had, I’d probably be willing to pay more to prevent it from happening again. I hope you fired a few “warning” shots up the chimney when you thought a guy was up there. That is the appropriate, rational response.

  • Special Agent Dale Cooper

    Not done this in a while thanks to my job coinciding with this, but said job is currently without a pulse so here us go.
    Good: The amount of movies I’ve seen so far this year, which is made especially awesome by the complete lack of any shit movies I’ve seen so far this year. When the worst movie I’ve seen this year (Manchester By The Sea) could only get a 6 from you, it’s been a damn good first 2 months for UK movie releases.
    And yes, I have seen La La Land, and it’s great. Fuck the hate train, it happens to every film with the most Oscar noms.
    Bad: The worlds continuing descent into far-right… Sorry forgot they rebranded themselves, alt-right bulshittery. It was beyond a fucking joke before #FreeSargon happened, but that was crazy even by their standards.
    Ugly: Work, usually, I’m indifferent to it, I earn money from it, and in a capitalist society where money is needed to survive and you have to sell your major in order to get money, that’s OK. I just wish it wasn’t this dead. There are so few orders atm it’s killing me.

    • Max

      “I just wish it wasn’t this dead. There are so few orders atm it’s killing me.”

      I hear you on that. My industry is very, very quite from about November to early February; I basically have a three-month enforced layoff. There’s only so much free time you can fill up – especially since filling up free time involves spending money, which of course you can’t do if you’re not earning it working.

  • Crocodylus★Pontifex

    GOOD:
    That new Emptiness album keeps on a’spinnin’ for me. It’s my favorite thing to come in a long while aside from the new NIN EP. Aside from the Blade Runner score, I can’t think of anything that sounds similar. It’s as if someone bottled up black metal and the weirdness from David Bowie’s “Blackstar” song and video and turned into a subgenre. I’ve had every song stuck in my head at least once or twice on top of that.

    Also; I’ve become obsessed with Blade Runner. Writing again (finally!). Got a simplified, yet complex idea (Thanks to Alex Jones’ theories on JRE. Even if you don’t like either, it’s a hilarious and strange listen).

    BAD:
    Everyone is sick, in more than one way. Not sure if my job will be secure come March. My boss is cool, but it’s the facility we use that I don’t trust.

    Happy weekendings to all and to all a weekend happyings.

    Ugly: Thanks to Max, I now have an unhealthy obsession with Freelee The Banana Girl. Her videos are a whole new level of weird

    • more beer

      I wouldn’t celebrate the travel ban thing too much. Jimmy Carter did the same thing in 1980. Without an issue. Also today there were hundreds of thousands of Iranians protesting and chanting death to America.

  • Bad: I’ve worked 68 hours this week. I don’t remember what being well rested feels like.

    Ugly: I can’t stop listening to that new Katy Perry song

    Good:$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

      Work has been brutal for me this week also. But I can’t say no to the money.

      • Exactly. Like ill be in the middle of my shift thinking this is the WORST, but then that paycheck comes and im like hmmmm maybe it wasnt THAT bad lol.

        • more beer

          Especially since this time of year is usually slow for me.But I would rather make money than sit at home doing nothing. Since everyone I know works. It isn’t like I can find a whole lot to do during the week anyway.

  • Hans Gruber

    Thanks for going with Arise instead of the oft-cited Beneath the Remains.

  • The Mighty Thorange

    Good: Got some friends coming round to mines tomorrow for their first ever game of Dungeons and Dragons and DM’ed by yours truly so that should be fun. Then getting drunk afterwards for a friends birthday.
    Bad: Uni work. Not doing to badly and working at a steady pace. I just hate doing the work because I am a lazy, unmotivated bastard.
    Ugly: Politics again. The shit with Trump just seems get even fucking crazier every day.

    Good: I’m heading to an rei sale tomorrow; hopefully I’ll get a ton of cheap camping doohickeys and whatnots.
    Mildly annoying: I got several inches of snow yesterday, thank you very much Punxsutawney Phil.
    Ugly: Family drama has got me stressed. Hearing the news doesn’t help with my stress levels very much.

    Good: Watched Three Colours Blue earlier, beautiful, sad, intense mesmerising dream of a film, with Juliet Binoche remarkable as the lead. Currently enjoying reading Uncle Vanya (Chekhov). Just listened to De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, about to have a smoke and then listen to Shrines.

    Bad: Current project phase is proving more tricky and time consuming than we had planned. Shifting a hundred something shelves of books in a couple of weeks is no biggie, but we’re trying to put them in order at the same time and that’s fighting twenty odd years of incompetence.

    Ugly: Our world today.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Australia ?? for Jim Jefferies. After watching Piers Morgan defend the Trump administration for nearly an hour, Jefferies did the right thing and told Morgan to fuck off.
