1/19/2018. Friday. Thank Satan.

  • Hey! We get a new Between The Buried And Me song today! It’s called “Condemned To The Gallows.”
  • Every Time I Die is going to be opening up for Fall Out Boy on some select dates later this year. Also Rise Against. Wut.
  • The movie poster for Lords Of Chaos has been revealed. I read the book. I won’t watch the movie. Ok. Maybe I will out of curiosity and annoyance.
  • It’s been awhile since The Absence have done a ton. So, here’s a new video for the title track from their upcoming new album called A Gift For The Obsessed. It will be out March 23rd. Enjoy.

Regardless of expectations, the excitement was still there for my first Rise Against show. And knowing their performance was going to be set up by local legends Killswitch Engage was a good thing as well. While I had seen the latter several times, it had been over half a decade since I had last watched them take a stage. Taking all factors into consideration, I was definitely able to walk away from this show with plenty of positives. Continue reading

Retrospective: Rise Against – “The Sufferer & The Witness”

The Sufferer And The Witness

Every great while an album comes around that just sticks with you that maybe — or probably — shouldn’t, either because it falls into a genre you don’t typically appreciate, or, well…it just isn’t that good. I’m not talking about an earworm that lasts for a few weeks. I’m referring to a collection of tracks you become addicted to for years. We all have ’em.

Hey, everyone. Coming to you late tonight, I know. Unfortunately, I had things to do that are more important than this. Deal with it.

I don’t exactly know what to do with that. Good luck.
