Super groups. More like pooper scoops, RIGHT?

Last week, in the name of W., we pitted 11 sensual selections against one another in an erotic riff battle-orgy. When the smoke settled, only the stylish, street-wise informant of two at-odds detective partners remained. Is it the Antonio Fargas version or the Snoop Dogg version? We may never fucking know.

Next week:

  • Poseur Disposeur has an idea. It’s a good one. “Because Iron Maiden riffs are banned in normal RotW,” he asks, “Have you considered doing an Iron Maiden Riff ov the Week?” So it shall be.
  • Send your Iron Maiden riffs to toiletovhellriff@gmail.com. Include your Disqus handle, a link, the time of the riff, and an explanation.
  • If you submit “The Trooper” – shame on you.
  • If you have an idea for a category or theme, let me know.

 

Masterlord

Members of AsphyxThanatosGorefest, and Martin vanfucking Drunen doing war-themed, Bolt Thrower-esque death metal. Enlist immediately. 3:12 in “DG-7” will straight up kill you. Gespensterdivision!

 

Masterlady

Since nobody submitted Down4:11.

 

W.

The Shrinebuilder riff starts at about 2:44 then carries the rest of the song in one form or another. You cannot ignore its girth.

 

Maik Beninton

Last year there was another supergroup featuring a member of Sepultura that wasn’t Killer be Killed. It didn’t have much coverage like KbK did. Probably because, aside from Andreas Kisser and Alex Gonzalez (Maná), the other members bands aren’t very famous. Andres Gimenez of A.N.I.M.A.L, D-Mente and Flavio Cianciaurlo of Los Fabulosos Cadillacs. Check the main riff of the song; it’s so groovy.

 

Ron Deuce

You cannot get anymore super than a group featuring members of Converge, Cave In and Isis. Old Man Gloom death n’ rolls you with the riff that starts at 0:29 and flat out steamrolls your crust punk trousers off. That is what you call a super official riff.

 

Shrimp In A Pizza Box

0:56, main riff of the song, much better if you listen to it after the solo and the following chorus about 2 minutes in. Most supergroups sux, Iron Reagan doesn’t.

 

Howard Dean

Supergroup riffs, you say? DISMA. Say it out loud. DISMA. Say it again. DISMA. Carve that shit into your arm with a rusty steak knife. DISMA. Make sure to carve it in all caps for greater effect (Seriously, it works. It’s like you’re yelling — smart people yell all the time). The hardest part was picking just one riff. Towards the Megalith is a clinic on how to construct a death metal album. I could’ve randomly picked a point in any song on his album and found a winner. But this one is real choice. Enjoy. Start at 1:21. FUN FACT: This riff also could have won tremolo RotW had a certain insane American politician (who is now talking about himself in the 3rd person) not submitted that world-destroying DsO riff (a.k.a the greatest tremolo riff ever made). I’m losing my mind. DISMA.

 

Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

It was either this or Judith. I’m sorry Maynard, but my man-crush for Mike Patton is stronger than the one I have for you. Now if you excuse me, I need to organize a three-way between me, Margot Robbie and Mike Patton (Remember the golden rule), brb.

 

Brock Samson

Murder Construct is a grind super group featuring members of Cattle Decapitation, Intronaut, Exhumed, Dreaming Dead and Bad Acid Trip.  Enjoy this tasty riff at 1:45.

 

Zeke

Off the top of my head, the only true supergroups that are good are Down (first album) and Arcturus (first few albums). I think Arcturus peaked with their second album, BUT this contest is about the riffs, and the riffs are on the first album. 30 seconds in.

 

Richter

This lineup of Arcturus was and remains something truly unique in black metal, and this riff is the culmination of all their otherworldly powers. Too bad the fuckers only play it for four bars in the song, from 1:13 – 1:29. It is gone as quickly as it appears, leaving nothing but chilly feels in its wake. Freeze your asses off, plebs.

 

Stanley

Yeah, it’s Testament, but this is Testament with the rhythm section that was spawned straight from Beelzebub’s bowels. Joining Chuck Billy and Eric Peterson we have Steve DiGiorgio (Death, Sadus, Vintersorg), Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Fantômas) and James Murphy (Death, Obituary, Cancer). This is Testament at their most primal and the rage is palpable. The riff starts at 0:24 but the chorus riff is just as juicy.

  • Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo

    Shrinebuilder for me kthx

    • The W.

      Ayyyyy

  • KJM

    Shrimp gets my vote this week.

    Damn, what Maiden riff would I pick? That’s gonna be interesting.

    • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

      It’s hard to decide on one.

    • more beer

      It`s hard not to go with them.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      I’m thinking no point submitting an early Maiden era riff as of now, they have all probably been submitted.

      • Be bold and submit a Blaze era riff!

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          What is this “Blaze era” that you speak of?

  • Edward/Breegrodamus™

    Isn’t Craig Pillard (Disma) a Nazi?

    • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

      Yeah. I forgot to put the disclaimer in my writeup (since it has nothing to do with that riff), but Craig Pillard is indeed an asshole.

      I apologize if anyone has a moral breakdown or existential dilemma because they inadvertently listened to a riff by a band where one of the members is a racist asshole. That of course should have been my first priority–to put in a disclaimer so that people with far superior and clean moral compasses can sleep at night knowing that they didn’t have to listen to a riff from a band with a bad man as a vocalist.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        Long explanation to a small question, lol

      • HD i’m sure you seen my work on The Wire… rest assured my moral compass is as clean as Mr. Speedreader’s black Lamborghini. you got my vote

      • Guacamole Jim

        Whew! I’m glad to know I’m not the only one incapable of speaking in anything other than pretentious sarcasm on Saturday mornings.

        • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

          You are not alone. Fret not. ‘m here. And there are others like us.

          But seriously, hopefully your credibility and/or morals weren’t compromised by that riff/band.

          • Guacamole Jim

            Naw, I shaved 2/5ths of my dick off in penance. Me and JC are tight, yo.

      • Stockhausen

        Dude, you tend to assume a loooooot on the part of everyone else on topics like this. You’ve also stated many times that you want community discussion here, and you just shut down what could have been a legitimate discussion. Of course that knowledge won’t make the riff sound any different, and any one of us who prefer to not support NSBM oriented bands may still enjoy it, with or without that knowledge. I may have voted for it, learned that Dillard is racist, said “Well, killer riff, but I’ll choose not to support them in the future,” and gone about my day without any moral dilemma or existential breakdown.
        TL;DR: chill.

        • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

          My snarky response was indeed an attempt to take a jab at the sometimes overly PC nature of the ToH.

          Also: that discussion about Pillard has been done to death all over the internet already. Google it. And the ToH discussion about “nazibuttz” and the like has already been done to death, too.

          • JamesGrimm

            This comment times 1000.

          • Stockhausen

            The internet would be pretty empty if we didn’t have discussions that have already been had. And really, I’m not even saying we need to have it, because like you said, we’ve had it a bunch. But as it still stands, it was just a point that someone brought up. You’re free t snark away in your response, but that reaction of yours is as worn out as you think the discussion is.

      • I feel like you take this stuff way too seriously.

        • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

          What stuff, specifically? Metal? Music? Racism?

          • I mean like ed just asked a simple question and you launched into an entire paragraph defending it when really the first sentence would have sufficed.

          • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

            Well, I’m honestly tired of having to discuss whether or not such and such a musician is racist or a Nazi. I bring up bands because I like the music–not because I agree with a member of said band’s ideology or not.

            To have the focal point immediately drawn to some jerk off in the band who is a racist gets fucking old real quick. And it happens all the time.

          • So if you’re tired of it then don’t acknowledge it. Problem solved.

          • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

            I think my third grade teacher told us that exact same thing.

            Seriously though, you could apply that logic to nearly everything in life. Yet strangely enough, most people don’t do that. Why? Because if they have any fortitude whatsoever, they stand up for themselves and their beliefs. They express themselves. Not everyone is a coward.

          • I don’t see the point of arguing about the beliefs of some obscure black metal band with strangers on the internet. So fucking what if they are Nazis or not. You enjoy their music or you don’t. Move on. Fuck what anyone else thinks. My point was you’re getting worked up over a simple question that at the end of the day is going to have no effect on your life whatsoever unless you base your self worth on maintaining some semblance of internet metal cred. In which case I feel bad for you. Maybe I just don’t understand because I’m not a pretentious twat.

  • Oli Fucking Sykes, Son.

    If Down are mentioned, they are probably getting my vote. Nice job Masterlady.

  • Going with Masterlord. Hail of Bullets is, to use my friend’s amazing pop lyrics, the pop to my corn.

  • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

    Good choice Shrimp. I cannot say no to Iron Reagan.

  • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

    Also, since no one submitted any classic rock supergroups here’s my pick for a riff. California Breed is a supergroup with Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham and Andrew Watt and it’s a shame they disbanded as quickly as they formed because they ruled.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MfJWKGG0pU

  • Tyree

    Looking forward to new Disma. Been too long.

    • more beer

      I`m going to be seeing them in October at California death fest.

  • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

    This one is between Masterlord and Howard Dean. They’re both really good, but Masterlord’s riff is generic as fuck and Howard Dean won more RotW than anyone else in the toilet tenfold.

    *votes for self*

    • Vladimir Poutine

      “Generic as fuck” was my initial reaction to Masterlord’s, until I realized that that’s the whole point- it’s still fun as hell and makes me want to kick things. Got my vote.

  • Shit, feels like if I vote Zeke I’m voting for myself. It’s only 8:19 a.m. and already with the ethical impasses . . .

    • Zeke

      I had the same thought… We could always trade, but that’s sort of like voting for ourselves too. I think we might need a ruling on this one.

      • I voted for you in the end. Which by TOILET LAW makes yours the better riff now. But it is a damn fine riff–and adheres more closely to the definition of “riff”. My choice was more like a “part”. But I must stand by it, as it was literally the first thing that came to mind . . .

        • Zeke

          Done and done. It was a pleasure doing business with you in this toilet

  • Dagon

    Torn between Down, Shrinebuilder and the new Tau Cross I totally forgot to submit something.

  • Dagon

    On the scale of sexual fetishes where does Vanfucking place compared to Dragonfucking?

    • Depends on if you’re fucking IN the van or just . . . you know . . . fucking the van.

      • Dagon

        I meant that as fucking the van.

        • Hmm . . . still more tolerable than dragonfucking. A dragon is a living thing, which begets bestiality. A van is just a masturbatory aid.

    • KJM

      Fucking inside vans was a bigtime fad during the 70s.

      • Dagon

        If I was a time traveller, the 70s would be at the top of my list.

        And then Dinosaurs.

        • KJM

          Agreed. I would give much to have seen Floyd, Zeppelin, and Sabbath at the top of their games, to name but a few.

          • Dagon

            I was in a huge 70s kick this week. In my car all that was played was Kansas, Mountain and Zeppelin. I got the Floyd binge in the two previous weeks as well.

          • KJM

            KQED TV 1970 is my favorite Floyd performance. Unfortunately youtube doesn’t have the full set anymore.
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6blNgo9bFw

          • Dagon

            I got something for you and the Floyd fans coming up in the near future. Should be fun 🙂

          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            I’m always on a huge 70’s kick. I’d love to see all the bands I like from that era like Fleetwood Mac and solo artists like Gerry Rafferty.

        • Lacertilian

          THIS!
          You have pretty much said exactly what I would do. Except I’d hit the late 60’s also.

      • more beer

        Remember those bumper stickers on vans in the 70`s? “Don`t come a knockin if the van is rockin.” That pretty much sums it up.

        • KJM

          During the late 70s? Customized ‘Star Wars’ vans everywhere.

          • more beer

            Yea during the late 70`s. There were just customized vans everywhere. I certainly remember the Star Wars ones.

    • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

      They make dragon-shaped dildos, not van-shaped ones. So by default Vanfucking is weirder.

      • QED!

      • For the female case, sure, as a van is a very awkward shape for a dildo. But fore the male case . . . why am I devoting any more precious analytical energy to this issue? I should be mentoring a child or something . . .

  • Scrimm

    I was going to pick Hail of Bullets too. Not that album though, Don’t know how you pick that band and don’t pick the song with guest vocals from Dan Swano.

    • Never understood the dislike for this album. It kicks arse.

      • Scrimm

        Has nothing to do with disliking the album, though I find it the weakest of the three. How could I dislike it MVD is my favorite DM vocalist ever?

        • MvD >>>>>>>>>>>>>

          • Dagon

            Hey guys I’m just passing by to say MvD is a beast.

            Carry on.

    • Phoenix of the House Tendies

      Honestly, I prefer this album over On Divine Winds. The songs on that album are great, but the production annoys the shit out of me.

      • Scrimm

        Interesting, never heard that complaint before. Have to pay closer attention next listen. I still really like thenewest one, just fell a little short in a couple ways for me.

  • Lol Disma is nazibutts.

    • Spear

      I’m honestly more offended by how weak that riff was.

      • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

        I know. It’s really terrible. No one seems to like it. It’s a lot worse than the others… mostly because it is stained with the swastika.

        • Spear

          There’s truly no accounting for taste.

          • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

            Truth. But within taste there exists varying degrees of complexity, most importantly that sixth sense for the mega-headbanger.

          • Spear

            I would argue that headbangability isn’t necessarily paramount when writing a good riff, but I guess that’s not what this contest is about.

          • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

            No, it’s not… but to me, headbangability can and often is a large part of a great metal riff.

            There are plenty of great metal riffs that aren’t about headbangers. A lot of my favorite all-time riffs aren’t headbangers. However, through tracking what types of riffs win this contest the most, they are usually headbangers.

      • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS
      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        Yet here it is winning the vote. SMH

    • Zeke

      Who’s in that band? Sounds like Incantation/Morpheous Descends

      • The founding dude played with Incantation for a while.

        • Zeke

          I guess I haven’t lost my ear for identifying 90s death metal bands! If I had my choice of picking one skill to excel at, I think I would’ve chosen something a bit more useful

          • Dagon

            Talk about useless skills, I could usually know who was producing a rap song upon first listen.

          • With or without a “Mike Will Made It” or a “DJ KAHLED WE THA BEST”?

          • Dagon

            Yup. Just beat and odds and trinkets.

          • Zeke

            Ok, you might have me beat. I can probably pick out rza beats, but that would definitely be my limit

          My friend is at MDF and he just posted a picture on Facebook of himself with them

          • Scrimm

            Lucky. They were a favorite of mine back in my formative days.

        • Hello yes I saw them today

          • Scrimm

            So bummed I couldn’t make it there. Someday.

    • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

      Better not listen to it or you might end up in some form of hell for morally depraved lechers. Just the musical notes alone can hurt the butts of the righteous and superior.

      • I listened. My butt continues to sparkle like a marble god. Voted Dubya doe.

        • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

          I think you’re safe. Wino may be a habitual drug abuser and recidivist, but I don’t think he’s a racist or a sexist.

          • To be fair, addiction is a disease. Racism is just fucking stupid.

          • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

            I think they are both rooted in poor decision making, to be honest.

          • Dagon

            Which may or may not be rooted in brain microstructure deffects (poor decision making/impulse control). It sort of gets into a “who came first” territory.

            With that said, you can’t take away the addict’s responsibility entirely, but you can’t underestimate the disease factor. It’s murky waters. Viktor Frankl wrote some of the best works regarding recovery of addiction, trauma and criminal behavior IMO. Really interesting stuff.

          • KJM

            Don’t forget to factor in pre-existing mental illness.

          • Dagon

            Yeah, that’s what I meant about the microstructure thing. Some people are congenitally more vulnerable to addiction than others.

          • KJM

            It’s just like abusive relationships. People who have no frame of reference often wonder if someone was being abused so violently, why didn’t they just leave? It’s not that simple.

          • The W.

            Same with depression and suicide, yo. It’s easy for people on the outside to call it selfish, but it is never that simple.

          • Someone once remarked to me that “suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” The lifelover in me agrees that this is sometimes or even often the case. The nonlifelover in me wanted to respond: “Inasmuch as life itself is only a temporary problem, you, sir, are correct.”

          • The W.

            Ha. In the moment though, it really seems like the only way out, and a chemically imbalanced brain doesn’t see the alternative. Plus, people in that situation often think others would be better off.

          • I know a few people who cashed themselves out, and it was of course sorrowful, but I never once thought to myself or out loud: “I don’t understand why/how they could do it.”

            Depression of this degree is truly difficult if not impossible to explain to people who have well-balanced brainmeats.

            Point being, suicide makes as much sense as any other personal choice of that magnitude.

          • The W.

            Word. Depression is always a fascinating topic for me. There’s a history of it in my family (myself included), and I’ve known people with severe depression/who have attempted suicide.

          • It doesn’t seem to run in my family. With me it was an acquired taste, I guess. Having a lady who likes to drink as much as you do really seems to help. (11 out of 10 psychiatrists disagree.)

          • Dagon

            Definitely not that simple. We all have different levels of resolve and most importantly different backgrounds. People with no support network will find it harder to leave than the ones with strong family/friendship ties.

            It’s the reason why the abuser usually works towards cutting those ties apart.

  • Coolstorybro

    The Gathering fucking slays. End of story.

  • The W.

    Yo Stannis the Mannis, that’s one of my favorite Testament songs. I think I broke my neck when they played it live.

    • Zeke

      That might be my favorite riff today. But I’m not sure he sold me on Testament being a super group

      • The W.

        Yah, that’s a wee bit debatable, but I don’t think anyone could deny that riff.

  • INDUBITABEARD

    Sometimes its just hard NOT to vote for Howard, despite his hatred of a lot of my favorite shit. Kudos.

    • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

      I seem to be a tempter, luring folks wayward and off the path of solid, social righteousness.

      • KJM

        Careful, Governor. Remember what happened last time we had to send you to Tolerance Camp…

      • Spear

        It seems to me like you’re getting more riled up about someone asking if the dude was a nazi than anyone else is about the guy actually -being- a nazi.

        • “FUCK OFF!” -Howard Dean

          Well because it’s common knowledge–NegroD likely knew Pillard was a racist, and if he wasn’t sure, he could have googled it. It’s common knowledge and is all over the internet.

          The point someone would have wanted to make by bringing that up within 15 minutes of the post going live was to incite and to detract from the riffs/contest. And it worked.

          • Master Ed, ROTW Saboteur for hire! A damnable trade, but demand is high and a man has to make a living.

          • Spear

            Did it? Because you continued to accrue votes well after Ed pointed that out.

  • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

    Murda Construct got my vote.

    Here’s my funkalicious post-punk ROTW:

    • Dagon

      Killing Joke >>>>>

      Have you listened to The Pop Group’s 2015 release?

      • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

        I haven’t even heard of them, but I’m looking it up now.

        • Dagon

          They came out of nowhere (ie: retirement) and dropped a new album. It’s post-punk with a lot of funk influences. Interesting listen but a bit of hit or miss.

          • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

            It would seem that every band is pulling out the out of nowhere album these last few years. Coal Chamber, Faith No More, Seigmen, Gorguts, At the Gates, Refused, etc…

            Damn this is some out there stuff. Shoosh.

            WOOOHOOO

  • Dagon

    I’m gonna go with W. here, but s/o to Masterlady. I didn’t vote for you because I think there were better Down riffs to explore.

  • tertius_decimus

    Seems too strange, but I’m addicted to Masterlord’s choice most of the time. By describing Hail Of Bullets as Bolt Thrower-esque death metal, you sold that band to me. Again! You have a taste. Quite a taste! This is some top-of-the-line death metal stuff.

  • tertius_decimus

    Love Maik Beninton’s submission as well. Too bad it isn’t allowed to vote for two people simultaneously.

    • Love Maik Beninton

      • tertius_decimus

        And Jimmy McNulty.

      • Maik Beninton

        I love you too.

  • tertius_decimus

    Howard, thanks for mentioning DISMA.

  • Supergroup riff ov the week needs more Bloodbath. http://youtu.be/UBfoMgllphs

    • Spear

      It’s kinda surprising that nobody submitted it. Huh.

    • Didn’t we already get scolded by the modlords for playing the “woulda shoulda coulda” game?

      • The W.

        Tsk, I say. Tsk.

    • Lock Up, Venomous Concept, Vellenfyre, and S.O.D as well

      • Does S.O.D count? When they started it could be billed as “Some dudes from Anthrax and their gross roadie”. I don’t think Nuclear Assault was a band yet.

        • more beer

          I`m pretty sure Nuclear Assault was around. I remember seeing them before I ever saw S.O.D.

      • How can you downstab the Nuge playing a solo wearing a cape(?) while gunshots fly around him???

        • Stockhausen

          Allow me to quote SMOHLG here.

        • Because NO!

          • Hot Squirt Of Best Korea Love

          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            I hate these guys so much.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            No you don’t

          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            I hate Damn Yankees. Even though they have Tommy Shaw the Nuge ruined it.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            Your words hurt

          • They should have called themselves Nelson Nelson. Would have sold twice as many albums.

          • Hot Squirt Of Best Korea Love

            They actually have a new CD, and they’re finally calling it quits. For some reason, they’re still around.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            LOL, I remember these guys

          • Hot Squirt Of Best Korea Love

            Sadly, I do too.

        • Zeke

          And a zebra-skinned guitar! Very useful for camouflaging his guitar for when he goes zebra hunting at the zoo in Texas

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          The Nuge approves

    • Hot Squirt Of Best Korea Love

      Lol, my dad loves them, and actually had a t-shirt of them!

      • Stockhausen

        I’m imagining your dad wearing a t-shirt made from the screaming, stitched together members of the band.

        • Hot Squirt Of Best Korea Love

          Lol, he drove a Datona in Puerto Rico!

        • Hot Squirt Of Best Korea Love

          Haha!

      • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

        They had shirts of Damn Yankees?

        • Hot Squirt Of Best Korea Love

          Yep!

          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            That’s surprising. I never enjoyed them.

          • Hot Squirt Of Best Korea Love

            I might actually listen to it just for the lollbuttz.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            Were you even alive when they were around?

          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            No. I knew of them for quite some time though and I still hated them.

  • I voted for iron Reagan because iron Reagan

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      I had it locked in until I saw Murder Construct

  • JamesGrimm

    Murder Construct by far.

  • nbm02ss

    I had to flip a coin for Hail of Bullets or Testament.

  • Some nice selections here:

    Hail of Bullets – That riff is borderline Entombedcore, I can get down with that

    Down – I was going to submit a song by them but I figured many others would

    Shrinebuilder – Not familiar with these guys but the riff selection is killer

    De La Terra – I wish the production was dirtier but that riff is quite catchy

    Murder Contruct – Danny Walker is beast behind the drum kit

    I cannot make up my mind.

    • Guacamole Jim

      Stabbed for the Hopsin.

  • Hot Squirt Of Best Korea Love

    Well, this isn’t a wiff, but here’s a supergroup.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwqhdRs4jyA

    • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

      I love these guys. Any band with Jeff Lynne and Bob Dylan has my automatic support.

  • Phoenix of the House Tendies

    I don’t really care about the drama below/above me concerning Nazis. All I know is that Randall described it best “Bolt Thrower with Duren on vocals.”

    So Mastercoral gets my vote. Good on ya sir.

    Edit: I do like Disma though. Fuck me right?

  • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

    Unrelated rant of sheer anger.

    How fucking incompetent is the US mail service? Seriously, how hard is it to deliver mail on time and without issue? FedEx delivered one of my packages two days early. UPS, one day earlier. USPS? 4 days late on a 1 day shipping. Now they claim the mail is “undeliverable” because some fuckhead put it on the wrong truck on the wrong route. Like, this level of boobery is unfathomable. Two other companies have no problems delivering shit, yet the main source of mail and packages can’t even get a 1 day shipment right. Kramer was right, we don’t need the US mail.

  • OldMetalHead

    I voted for the Down because I don’t think my first choice, Testament, is a supergroup 🙂

    • Stanley

      For this album it was. Read the blurb.

      • Grease Sells… But Who’s Frying

        The Gathering always felt more like a supergroup album than a Testament album, to me. I’ve got no problem with it being here.

    • Lacertilian

      First approved bed in Parliament house without bed bugs?

    • Hot Squirt Of Best Korea Love

      Who says my name without fear?!?

  • old_man_doom

    It’s all about those fat-ass riffs, boys. W. has got it. I want another Shrinebuilder album, but I feel like that will never happen.

  • Hot Squirt Of Best Korea Love

    On good news, got an interview with Tengger Cavalry! If you have any questions, toss them on over to geistimsturm@gmail.
