It’s back!

Here’s the deal – I’m gonna make this pretty quick because I’m about to go see Skull Fist. Forgive me my curtness.

I won last week. I’m coming for you, Howard Dean.

Boss

 

BUSINESS:

  • Everyone’s favorite dip, Guacamole Jim, chose the theme for next week. I’ll let him explain it: You know that one part in a song where the singer repeats the same line over and over? The part where you hear it once and can’t help but scream along with it every time you hear it from that point on? The part where you can’t wait until the live show, because you know they’re going to play that song, and you know that part is going to hit, and you know the entire crowd is going to flip the fuck out and scream like banshees along with the singer? Yeah, that’s what we’re doing next week.The rules are:
    1. It has to be a vocal line.
    2. It can be gang or solo vocals.
    3. It doesn’t have to have words (i.e. can be a melody line of “oooooh”‘s), but has to repeat at least four times.
    4. It should be metal, but doesn’t have to be (see: Killing in the Name).
    5. It absolutely HAS TO make you want to scream along.
  • Send your entry to toiletovhell@gmail.com with your name, an explanation, and a specific time.
  • Let me know if you have an idea for a theme.
  • Long live Schubert.

 

Masterlord

Some brave soul submitted Galneryus a number of weeks back and they didn’t get enough attention, so I’m giving them another shot here. I don’t expect them to be a hit among the voters, but I can’t lie to my heart. And my heart says submit the solo at 2:44 of “Hunting for Your Dream.” Watch this group of Final Fantasy characters shred their shit.

 

Tyree

At 1:06 there is a no fucks given solo that offers no mercy. The guitar solo that says: fuck off and die! So fucking DIE!

 

Jack Bauer

My choice for solo of the week comes from my 2014 album of the year. The solo that starts at 2:42 and goes all the way to 6:12 in Bloodshot Dawn’s “The Image Faded” is fucking amazing.

 

Blackbeard

When I think of solos, I think of power-prog. Its a genre built around cheese, and using your instrument as a phallic object with which to slay poseurs. Symphony X is a name with all due pedigree, and their guitarist Michael Romeo is one of the most talented in the business. And, rather than simply give you a song and make you find the solo. I’ll do you one better, from “Sea of Lies.”

 

Nordling Rites ov Karhu

I had another solo, a good one but a traditional one as well. After some thinking I decided to throw A Forest Of Stars’ “God” at you. It begins about at 4:35 and it’s a very heavy case of dem feels. Oh, and it’s played on a violin.

 

Akercocke of Steele

Yes, I think this is a very, very great solo. And The D-word Does not refer to Dave Mustaine.  Starts at 3:10.

 

Zeke… or Isaac; whatever

People generally don’t look to 2nd wave black metal for guitar solos, but I always thought the solo in this song was fantastic. I don’t think there’s any question that the dude from Abigor can shred when he wants to, but for his solo in this song he decided to go slow and make every note count. I think this approach fits the song perfectly. Oh, and bonus points for the Seventh Seal clip in the intro. Solo starts at 2:50.

 

The Satan ov Hell

Is the D word Death? 2:59 for a fantastic Chuck Schooldiner solo.

 

McNulty

It seems you flushers are always voting for something too crusty, doomy, Manowar-y, or Bolt Thrower-y for my taste (aren’t most of you YOUNGER than me?)  So while I could have picked a bunch of modern, polished guitar solos – and lost – I’m going as kvlt and as poorly-recorded as I possibly can. 1349 wrote a NASTY guitar solo on the track “Psalm 7:77.” It’s lightning fast, it’s weird, maybe a little messy, and towards the end one has to wonder how much higher those notes can get! (Start at 2:52the vocals are going to make an appearance but the solo goes all through 4:05).

 

JWG

This particular live version of Blue Oyster Cult’s “E.T.I. (Extra Terrestrial Intelligence)” has not one, not two, but three solos: each occur at almost exactly 2:00 (the short one), 3:00 and 4:00, respectively. Improvisation was pretty much par for the course of a live BOC experience; but the fact that only one of the three solos (the first one) is even comparable to the studio album track’s solo just makes this one that much more impressive.

 

Brock Samson

Sorry fellow turd sniffers, but I believe I win. Start at 3:56.

 

Maik Beninton

Well, which one right? There are 2 solos in this song, but I’m choosing the second one that start at 2:48.

 

Call the Slambulance

Is this a low-hanging fruit? Probably. Fuck you. This is my least favorite track on a perfect album due to the stupid lyrics, but this song blasts. The solo at the 2:00 mark is evil as all hell and complemented wonderfully by the explosive drums. Party hearty, life-lovers.

 

The Mighty Tapir

A person who doesn’t like Gentle Giant isn’t a person you should be friends with. This song is from my favourite album of theirs. The solo  starts at about 02:00.

 

Link D. Leonhart V.

If I could, I would nominate the entire Ad Astra album from groovy Wwedish maestros Spiritual Beggars, but you limited me to just one song and this is my pick: “Sedated.” What makes a good solo? To me it’s the ability to express from the bottom of the strings some kind of emotion and expression. I’m going to cheat a little bit, because I pick both guitar solos from this song. Since the start, the trippy keys of grandiose Per Wilberg, the distorted bass of Mr. Spice and the bouncing drums of Ludwig Witt pave the road for the guitar to shine and help the sounds to ascend to the stratosphere and the stars themselves. With the use of the cry-baby pedal, Mr. Michael Amott (yes, that red-head that some use to bash) displays those classic influences in his playing at the 1:14 mark. I don’t know about you, but, when I hear those squeals, those scale runs, and those sacred bendings (specially the one in 3:06), I can’t help myself from air guitaring and making weird slug faces while seeing a lot of purple, yellow, red, and white. That’s what the solo does to my senses.

  • I voted Enslaved.

  • Howard Dean

    THEY’RE TRYING TO KEEP ME DOWN! I’VE BEEN BILL KAZMAIER’D. KEPT DOWN IN MY PRIME!

    Here is my entry that didn’t make it. WRITE IN HOWARD DEAN FOR SOLO OV THE WEEK!

    “This entire album by Slough Feg has the swagger of a drunken Scotsman, but this song in particular sounds like a stocky, red-faced man who gets into a fistfight over drinking songs and then buys the other guy a pint and a Cumberland pie afterward. Lots of fun, in other words. And when this solo comes in at 1:08, you can’t help but grin. Beautiful stuff, folks. Lifeloving goodness.”

    • Edward #negrodMMXV

      Can I change my vote just based on your description? Flush the rest of these posers. Dean ’16!

      • Howard Dean

        Many thanks, NegroD!

    • You say “Byaaaaah!” once and people start jumping to conclusions. People these days and their political correctness!

    • JWG

      I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. I’m going to start a write-in campaign for Howard Dean for Prime Minister of Canada. #ByahEh

          • Edward #negrodMMXV

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Hulk should be banned too.

            This is so good. I can’t stop watching it.

  • The Bestest Tapir

    McNutly, you get my vote.

    • Ditto!
      The album cover alone did it for me.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

      JWG gets my vote because he picked Blue Oyster Cult.

      • The Bestest Tapir

        The boy who would is back.

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

          I was busy this morning. Also, I know I would.

    • dang buddy… thanks! this means a lot

  • Maik Beninton
  • That brave soul that submitted Galneryus would be me. Sadly, almost no one voted for it, urrrrrrgh! But, got my Whiff Of The Week submitted, and trust me, it’s stinker than a skunk having a group orgy with a room full of scared stink bugs! I’m coming for ya, Masterlord and Howard Dean, and I’m breaking crayons and snapping cucumbers with this one!

    http://data1.whicdn.com/images/137558105/original.gif

    • DDubya.

      Having already seen all the entries for whiff this week, I should tell you you have some stiff competition.

  • Masterlord: I debated not even watching this video because *vomits uncontrollably*. I played it anyway. Man I hate shred.
    Tyree: Hell yeah Revenge. This song is tight and this solo is garbage. I will probably vote for it.
    Jack: These are some laaaame riffs opening this song. Gonna skip ahead to the solo. This chord progression sounds like something out of a Dave Weckl Band song. Also lol @ when these tech bands do their sw33t tapping and their tone has no attack. Sounds like Guitar Pro. This solo is like 4 minutes long? Gonna skip the rest.
    Blackbeard: Your description is already basically a laundry list of things I hate about music. The video is like someone made a TVTropes page for “guitar demonstration.”
    Bearman: This is a good choice.
    Ackerstache ov Steele: Not gonna listen. Can’t stand this song.
    Iseke: Loooooove Abigor but this solo isn’t really anything special.
    Satano Vhell: hhhhhnnnnggggggooooohhhyyyeeeeaaaahhhh
    McNulty: lol @ “aren’t most of you YOUNGER than me?” Solo was whatever but I like that the live footage they used for this video could have been literally any other band.
    JWG: W was wrong, the new Opeth sounds nothing like BOC. BOC are good.
    Brock: Now THIS is a good solo. Simple but it fits the song and just sounds cool. You other tools should be taking notes.
    Maik: Also a good choice, for pretty much the same reasons. Guitarists: quit sweeping and just play something that sounds cool!
    Slambulance: Great as this song/album is, I’m really not a fan of the solo in it. It’s aight though, better than some of the other trash people submitted.
    Anus: you are correct. The Power and the Glory>>>>>>>
    Link: Your writeup makes me want to cry but I cannot back this song.
    I voted for Revenge. I hate guitar solos.

    • Bloodshot Dawn aren’t tech silly

      • Spear

        They’re in the same camp as Allegaeon, straddling the line between melodeath and tech. To say they aren’t either of those things is an inaccurate assessment.

        • true

          • do you remember, seven days ago, i said “who is gonna submit THAT solo first?” your submission is PRECISELY what i was thinking…

          • lol it’s so good though

          • Thanks JJD (lol)…. With you 110%. Wasn’t insult. The only reason I didn’t submit that one cause I knew you would

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

            It was a good solo.

          • I knew the majority wouldn’t vote for it and I didn’t care lol. Seems like people vote on the band more than the actual riff a lot.

          • I think that’s how all these things work. Last week that Bolt Thrower song was okay but the fade out was nothing special…

          • JWG

            Evidently. I thought I’d come up with an excellent excellent solo, but then wound up with exactly the two votes I knew I could count on (maybe – I’m only sure of one because I didn’t vote for myself).

            For next week, I’ve tried to combine ideal choice for the topic with a band that can’t be disputed as otherwise excellent (the band has been in the ROTW at least twice with other tunes).

          • DDubya.

            This place has thrown me for a loop a few times. I’ve seen some genuinely great riffs get crushed. I voted for Michael Romeo because his phrasing is amazing.

          • Howard Dean

            You never know. I’ve won a couple times, and I try not to pick the most obvious choices if I can help it. I’ve won with Burzum, who is certainly not a darling of the Toilet, and Malign, who is not a “name” band at all. I also won thrash riff of the week with Demolition Hammer, which was a surprise for me, too-especially with Slayer, Vektor, Revocation, Testament, Megadeth, etc as choices. For the ’95 riff, I did choose Dissection, but one could almost objectively call that the best riff of ’95, so I had to pick it.

        • #schooled

      • Chris Amott and Teemu solos were the best of that song 🙂 I liked that album

    • Mr.CustodialArts

        • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

          Yes, you has

      • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

        I’m gonna vote for Sutherland

      • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

        “C” = grey/brown
        Masterlord = White

      • Guacamole Jim

        I legit lol’d

    • my video was TERRIBRO. but i needed people to have the 720p option for audio quality, so……………..

    • my writing is THAT bad?! T_T

  • BLVKKBEVRD

    If I can’t win, I want McNulty to.

  • Spear

    Marty Friedman’s solos on RIP are unflushable. Tornado of Souls is my favorite solo of all time, so my vote goes to Steele.

    • Jointsalot

      Like or hate megadeth. That solo can’t be beaten. I find the enslaved solo a little boring but thats just my opinion.

      • Spear

        I don’t mind the Enslaved solo, but it’s only okay. There are plenty of other solos like that that are much better.

          Lol, I though this was PExxx for a fleeting second. Definitely jamming though.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            It’s the feedback soaked intro.

    • You’re obsessed!

      • Edward #negrodMMXV

        I just got in from having breakfast with my dad so I wanted to get in some tunes before I do adult things like clean up cat fur all day.

        • BLVKKBEVRD

          Welcome to my world, Ed.

          • Edward #negrodMMXV

            Dude ain’t that big – where does all this fur frickin’ come from?!

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            Is he a longhair? Big Fuzz is at 15+ lb long haired maine coon. That plus the dog = this house is an allergic’s worst nightmare

          • Edward #negrodMMXV

            Uh, I don’t think he’s a long hair. I’m not sure on his breed cause I got him from catsitting but a lot of people have said he looks like a Russian Blue (even people from our community / crew).

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            Awwwwwww, my mom and my best frand have russian blues. I think they are categorically short hairs tho. Cat fur doesn’t really care. It just wants to get everywhere.

          • Edward #negrodMMXV

            Me vs. cat fur = me. Today I am the winner. Give it one week and this place will be a cat fur infested shit hole, lol

        • Thankfully our kitten (Princess Poopypants) doesn’t get fur everywhere, or maybe I just don’t bother to notice.

  • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

    Yeah, a good solo is very good. Too bad there are like Three good (guitar)solos in the world. Imma gonna have to go with Thy Mighty Tapir, ’cause I liek the way that solo rolls

            Absolutely unrelated, but were you the guy askin levykauppa äx about Tankard’s Chemical Invasion?

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Yes, among other things I can be found asking there. Though I have later on removed at least half of my questions from there

          • The Bestest Tapir

            I know where you could buy that on cd for 9.90, if you’re still looking for it.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            What is this place called? How do I get there? And how much are the postal fees?

            http://ektrorecords.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=23&products_id=3420
            I bought a couple of Circle albums and one other album. No postal fee in finland.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            I didn’t know Ektro sold anybody else’s records

          • The Bestest Tapir

            They’ve got a bunch of records for sale.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Welp, now I need to go through them all

          • The Bestest Tapir

            I spent a big part of my day looking through it all. Most, if not all, are cheaper tham Äx.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            This is good to know, Siitos!

          • Stanley

            I think I have Chemical Invasion on LP back in Wales. Must dig it up next time I visit the folks. Also want to get my hands on my Deathrow Deception Ignored LP. Noise records was the tits in the 80s.

            It’s a cough medicine that is fairly easy to use for DXM extraction
            (Yes, I speak your Icelandic)

          • Awesome! It’s taught in Finland?

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Nope, I listen to Solstafir, You learn a word or two. I am absolutely terribad at it though

          • Nah, not from Iceland, but my grandmother was. So I can speak a bit of it here and there. Tried to learn Finnish a while back, and goddamn it’s hard as hell to learn! It’s right up there with Arabic, Faroese, Tibetan, and Tutsi on the most difficult languages to learn.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            @MetaAnus2:disqus Your answer is here.

            I think it’ usually agreed on that Finnish is dimmadarn hard.

          • I heard a bit of it on the Sentenced DVD (Buried Alive), and it sounded like like Dutch and Faroese with a hot potato in the guy’s mouth, lol. Icelandic is hard as hell too, and the grammar is a fucking headache.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Icelandic is, I think, closest to the original form of Nordic languages. Lol @ hot potato, here in Funland, people say that’s what Danish sounds like.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Sounds… Inviting, but to boost birthrates is to have kids. To be or not to be (dancing the mambo down at Denmark) is the question.

          • The Bestest Tapir

            Problem with that is that he would have to go to Denmark.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

            Denmark is the happiest place on Earth though!

          • The Bestest Tapir

            North Korea is the happiest place on Earth.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

            No it isn’t. Denmark is.

          • The Bestest Tapir

            You’re wrong.

          • Stanley

            Panama of all places has usurped Denmark.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

            Really? My uncle was from there and it doesn’t seem like a nice place.

      • might vote you cause of that pic.
        your solo was great tho, fo realz

  • well, opeth are now one of my favorite bands ever.

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    Enslaved. I voted for Enslaved. At least that solo sounds pleasant and not like a masturbatory wank-fest of “look-how-fast-I-can-play weedlies and deedlies and sweepies…”

  • Stanley

    I guess the solo that I submitted didn’t make the cut. Bummer. I’m sure it would have been a contender. (PS. I submitted my submission before the Opeth love fest that occurred the other day.)

    Opeth – A Fair Judgement
    “Back when Opeth knew their arse from their elbow there were things called good songs. Good songs that contained good solos. There’s 3 or 4 solos in this song but my money is going on the one that starts at 6:18”.

    • Edward #negrodMMXV

      Haha, it’s awesome you let everyone know it was before the Opeth love-aganza.

      • BLVKKBEVRD

        I still dont have a hard-on for Opeth.

        • Edward #negrodMMXV

          I don’t either. I do like the new album that many other people hate but I’m not too well versed in their music.

  • Stanley

    Mr. Bauer. Check out the liner notes for your submission. There are 7 solos there. I like your style!

  • Warheart

    Damn, 2 of my favorite solos in this list. Sorry Mustaine, but I can’t help it, it’s just that Enslaved has a strong Floydian vibe in this song.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    I find it amazing that MSD’s avatar fits perfectly within the look & feel of the Mario world.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      I thought it was part of the game. I was never a SNES man, except for Mario Kart of course

      • CyberneticOrganism

        Mario Kart >>>>>>>>>>

        • Lacertilian

          N64 Mario Kart is my preferred drinking kart game.
          4 player Battle on Block Fort, I choose Wario, bring it the fuck on.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            I’ve grown to love the Wii version, even though Luigi sucks cocks in hell.

  • Stanley

    The Abigor solo is pretty cool but not long enough. The 1349 solo was uh, interesting. King Diamond was tasty. You don’t normally turn to Enslaved when you are looking for solos but this one is a corker. It has everything that I like in a solo and takes the song to a whole new level. I hope their new album has a few more of these gems on it. You get my vote, Brock.

  • PhoenixKing Leonhart

    Lol @ McNulty. I am definitely older than you, guy.

    Also I voted for Brock cause Enslaved.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

      I don’t get the big deal about the Enslaved solo. I love the song but there is so many better solos her such as JWG’s solo and Tapir’s solo.

    • Scrimm

      Also older than Mcnulty.

      • Stanley

      McNutty is older than me, but not by much.

      • Edward #negrodMMXV

        McNulty and I are almost the same age. I think he just a tiny bit older.

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

          Did any of you know that the Black Flag album from 2013 is extremely shitty? It is the worst album I have ever heard from any major punk band.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            Ok then. I guess it’s relevant as seeing we are in our dirty thirties

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

            I meant to put it as a general comment but I unintentionally put it here. It’s such a shitty album.

      • PhoenixKing Leonhart

        Yes and no. Same age, but I definitely look younger. Get that all the time. It’s both a blessing and a curse.

    how nice it is to wake up to a bunch of cool ass recommended guitar solos–

    last year ..zakk wylde played in our city–in a festival –that was getting called off–cuz of rain and severe lightning—his band went out and played anyway—and it was really good—-i think everyone felt like they might get killed any second—and it really inspired his playing

    —-

    here’s zakk—and tammy wynette–in a non existant country cyber combo

  • DDubya.

    I voted Blackbeard. Michael Romeo rules.

  • Akercocke ov Steele

    Wow, Brock, you weren’t kidding, that solo wins. And couple that with my newfound interest in Earl Scruggs annnnnnnnnnd there goes my wallet.

  • Call the Slambulance

    Tyree, you get my vote. That shit’s gross.

  • LMAO! I know everyone’s seen this one, but here’s the full uncensored version.

  • EsusMoose

    The final fantasy joke got me

  • CT-12

    Dayum Tapir, you got my vote! Never really listened to Gentle Giant, gonna have to change that today! Sidenote: Slambulance, you should’ve gone with the solo from “Lifestalker”, I would have voted for you in a heartbeat.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      CT I opened up on a tab on that Dreamcrusher’s Incinerator I mean to get into it today or over the weekend a little bit.

      • CT-12

        Hell yeah man, hope it’s up your alley!

    • The Bestest Tapir

      Stay away from their last albums, for those are bad poppy albums.

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

        I agree. Civilian and Giant For A Day are my least favorite albums of theirs.

      • CT-12

        Will do bud!

  • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

    Here’s my solo ov the week. This whole instrumental section has all these different solos playing off of each other with tremendous effect. Long live Bloodrock!

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

  • i’m sure JJD votes for BOC (JWG)

    • The Bestest Tapir

      He did.

      • you got my vote.

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

          I almost voted for the tapir but then I remembered that there was a BOC track. They always win my vote.

        • The Bestest Tapir

          Thank you random citizen.

          • new Napalm Death has leaked. i was trying to find you on Steam… we still fwiends? have you just changed your name?

          • The Bestest Tapir

            You on my list still. I’m Lucifer. I don’t know if I want to hear it yet tho. I will get the album on next friday.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan Svre Wovld

      How did you know?

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        We all knew

  • Scrimm

    Only one vote for KIng Diamond? You all should be ashamed of yourselves.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      I know how much you love the King. Hell I don’t mind some myself but I had to vote for @CockofSteele:disqus seeing as he submitted my solo earlier than me.

      • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

        In your new propic Ted looks like a beaver.

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          Yeah I know, I’m still yet to settle on an avatar that I’m happy with. I’ll eventually knock something together that will provide the lols

      • Scrimm

        You get a pass.

    • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

      But it’s the solo-man, man. Not the guise who are doing it, man

      • Scrimm

        I know that. The guitars on that album ripped.

        • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

          Welp, I’m not really a fan of guitar solos so what do I know *RunsLikeHell*

          • Scrimm

            I’m actually usually not that big one them either. The only solo I play is on a cover song my band does. Certain guitarists however…

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        Yeah but without the guitars the King ain’t nothing but a high pitch bitch

        • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

          Yeah, without the guitars King is just King.

    • Pierre Generic

      I voted for the King. “GRANDMA, WHAT WAS IT LIIIIIIKE/TO BE ON THE HOLIDAY SIIITE!”

      • Scrimm

        Good man!

    • Jointsalot

      I was going to vote for KD but couldn’t find myself voting against tornado of souls.

  • BLVKKBEVRD

    Here’s something a little different. Here is my classic rock album of the week.

    The album Argus by Wishbone Ash is a classic yet the band is little more than a footnote in rock history. They should be much more than a footnote due to their pioneering of the harmonic twin guitar lead. This album is also much more progressive than their other output but it is a masterpiece that you should buy. Here’s a Youtube link to the album and if you like what you hear buy it. It’s 4 dollars on Amazon if you want to buy it.

    I think I have ONE song that fits the criteria for next week…but I’m sure a thousand of my Norse brethren have the same song in mind. Bruh. gotta find something else!

    Also, that Dethlehem from last week’s Toilet Tuesday is the greatest thing ever. My bros and I are Pathfinding along with it and it is marvelous. The wonders that lurk inside this Toilet are without number.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      I may have just submitted the winner barring popular band / brand name bias.

  • Flush00Gordon

    Enslaved….

  • Further Down the Metal Hole

    That is my favourite song of that album Mr. Bauer, well done! Those melodies make me all gooey.

    LISTEN TO BLOODSHOT DAWN, POSERS!
