Comments from Darren Frye

I have lost a lot of money over the years naively assuming my friends will give a shit about a show or artist. Unless it's Bruce, The Who etc. etc. most just don't care (and I love both but...). Have zero hang-ups and just go see the bands you want to see. "Lame-ass friends" indeed. One of my best friends - whether he likes it or not is irrelevant - is game for almost any show though. Unfortunately he lives in South Carolina. Whenever he's in town he says "let's go to Saint Vitus!". He's fascinated with metal and the culture, if not the music itself, which I find hilarious. A little divergence there - go to church as often as you can!

Holy shit. I had no idea...and yeah that album kicks so much ass it's ridiculous. Big fan of The Ethereal Mirror too. Any metal band that can successfully incorporate hand claps will always get my approval.

And that's what good thrash is all about! That is definitely their best album...and I still have it on vinyl. It was one of those buy-the-album-without-hearing-a-single-note things us old school metalheads did on the regs back then. Of course, for every Onslaught there was a Lawnmower Deth or Wargasm...blew a lot of lawn mowi..I mean, paper route money on shitty music.

Oh, in addition to redface's reco's: Celtic Frost, Sepultura, Excel, Exciter, Hirax, Onslaught, Destruction, and Death Angel are all great. And while Reign In Blood is objectively Slayer's best album, my personal favorite is Hell Awaits due to the murk and creep factor. If you can listen to At Dawn They Sleep without involuntarily smashing your face against the wall, you're a better man than me.

I love Power Trip. Saw them play to like 30 people at The Studio at Webster Hall a couple years ago. I throw Heretic's Fork on whenever I need a shot of adrenaline...holy fuck that breakdown (which old people like me used to call 'mosh parts'). Their drummer and main man, Chris Ulsh, plays guitar and vox in Mammoth Grinder...who play death metal so you will prob not like it but there it is.

As my buddy said after I dragged him to a Russian Circles show a few years back, "those guys tell better stories than most bands with words do". Amen brother. Good chatting with you at Vitus Doug! The whole night kicked ass, and Pyrrhon had no small part in that. Thanks for delivering the goods...

I'll be the guy in the suite at MSG for Radiohead tonight taking sliders, chicken fingers, and hot dogs to the face while wearing a tee that says "Suck It Morrissey". Tomorrow I'll be the guy doubled over in pain while projectile vomiting.

Nailed it. This here is actually just a run-up to his left-field cover series, Make Me, Misty. First up, The Flying Burrito Brothers "Hot Burrito #1" (yes, he will eventually do #2). That will be followed by Patsy Cline.

that's a good setlist you got there: http://www.brooklynvegan.com/radiohead-began-their-two-night-stand-at-madison-square-garden-setlist-review/ I'll be the guy screaming "play Talk Show Host!" incoherently while being escorted out the front door tonight. No but I am very excited to hear how the new stuff sounds live...glad you got Let Down!

Damn you're not kidding. Guess I was mentally preoccupied during the first spin because it did NOT register with me like that until just now. Time to clear the mind and get down with some more Boris... Btw there is a good interview with Takeshi on Invisible Oranges: http://www.invisibleoranges.com/interview-takeshi-boris/

Hell yeah. Between PL and Dark Descent, not much to complain about with the metal this year! Then there is Season of Mist and the rising-with-a-bullet label I, Voidhanger. Good shit meng.

i was going to mention Wreck and Reference actually. unique as fuck. see also: Zeal and Ardor, Author and Punisher (the latter does not have a new album). what is it with the "this AND that" names of these industrial metal projects? all 3 are wildly unique and all 3 rule. A&P guy actually builds his own fucked up machines and makes music with them. pretty wild.
